Feedback Guidelines for Leaving a Review on SurveyPolice

What to Include In Your Review

A useful review is easy to write (we have thousands of them on our website!), is written in English, and contains the following:

  • Honest and fair feedback
  • An appropriate level of detail
  • Accurate details
  • Relevancy in helping others assess the quality of the website/program you’re reviewing
  • Writing that is clear and concise

Don’t forget that you must currently be/once were a member of the survey panel, website, or GPT Program you’re reviewing; you may not leave reviews for sites you are not/were not ever a member of.

Tip! Including a “pros” and “cons” list in your review is especially helpful for other users.

What is Not Permitted in Your Review

If you include any of the following in your review, it might be marked as “disapproved” and not published on SurveyPolice.

  • SPAM
  • Links to other websites
  • Profanity, racism, or hate speech
  • Feedback regarding a survey panel, website, or GPT Program you are/were not actually a member of
  • Poor star rating due to apparent lack of available surveys, namely, in a short period of time
  • Irrelevant/nonsensical writing
  • Content written in a language other than English
  • Unreasonable, unfair, defamatory, or otherwise objectionable commentary. i.e. Please refrain from using words such as and similar to “fraud”, “scam”, “con”, etc. and suggesting legal action including class action lawsuits
  • Griping – if you leave a series of very negative reviews, please re-evaluate if participating in the survey panels, websites, and GPT programs listed on SurveyPolice is for you
  • Obvious bias – purposely leaving negative reviews for your competitors and/or propping up a survey panel, website, or GPT Program with fake reviews

As well, if you violate our Terms of Service, your review(s) will not be published.

SurveyPolice reserves the right to decide whether or not to publish your review. The vast majority of reviews submitted are published without issue, but if there’s a problem, the SurveyPolice Community Manager will typically leave you a personalized response which you can read by logging into your account, and locating the disapproved review where a button similar to the following will appear:

Click it to read the explanation for why your review was disapproved and what needs to be changed in order for it to be published.

A few other notes:

  • Your review may be edited for grammatical and spelling mistakes
  • You may only leave 1 review per survey panel, website or GPT Program listed on SurveyPolice
  • Your reviews are your responsibility. Please refer to our Terms of Service for more information
