Reviewer Code Of Conduct

All Reviewers must abide by the Raves & Reviews Terms & Conditions and comply with the rules, regulations, and policies in order to ensure that you do not run afoul of any legal issues. To that end, Raves & Reviews sets forth the following rules and Code of Conduct.

✦ Raves & Reviews imposes a one-strike violation policy, at which time the user account will be banned with all content removed. In some circumstances, all of the banned user’s referred accounts will also be removed and banned. This is to help ensure that those who join Raves & Reviews choose their referrers wisely and only according to the official parameters set forth by Raves & Reviews. If you are unsure as to the credibility or status of the Reviewer, or if the Reviewer is promoting T&C violations, you are discouraged from joining through them because if and when they are banned, you could be banned also.

✦ All members must obey the law: local, state, and federal. Failure to obey the laws may place you in severe legal jeopardy and result in a loss of revenue on the minor end, to prison time in more extreme circumstances.

✦ Do not engage in clickbait marketing practices. Anyone caught engaging in clickbait will have their account permanently banned and all content removed.

✦ Spam posting and low-quality posts will be removed. Further offenses will result in the removal of your content and the permanent closure and ban of your account. No exceptions.

✦ Do not produce video or photo images of the Account Dashboard features, forms, links, or content. Anyone reported or caught publicizing private, members-only areas for any reason will have their account permanently banned and all content removed.

✦ Do not attempt to circumvent Raves & Reviews payment links. All Reviewer membership subscriptions are expressly, explicitly, and exclusively made through the Raves & Reviews website or our Reviewer profiles on the Raves & Reviews website. No monies are ever collected, nor transactions made in person, nor through any other means, nor any other websites, domains, or payment portals. Anyone reported or caught directing Reviewer membership payments to offsite links, in-person transactions, or to other payment processors, or giving away free subscriptions will have their own and all referred accounts permanently banned with all content removed. No exceptions.

✦ Do not include the words “scam” or “scheme” or “system” when marketing or promoting Raves & Reviews, whether in anger, retaliation, sabotage, clickbait, or other motivations contrary to the intended goals of Raves & Reviews. This includes print media, digital media, audio, and video, non exclusively. 

✦ Do not create photos, videos, or other media displaying fans of cash, mansions, high-end sports cars, or other luxury items as a lure to recruit Reviewer membership subscriptions.

✦ Do not make any claims about specific amounts of income that are possible or guaranteed as a Reviewer. This is illegal across the United States. As Raves & Reviews is based in the United States, you are expected to abide by the laws affecting Raves & Reviews. You may suggest words such as “potentially significant,” or “as much as you desire to earn” or even “unlimited potential.”  You may not claim any specific amounts like “make $250 an hour” or “earn $500 a day.”  It is permissible to specify the Reviewer’s membership subscription amounts directly as it informs others as to the required monthly or annual subscription fee.

✦ Raves & Reviews welcomes racial, cultural, societal, and religious diversity. Do not, under any circumstances, engage in public arguments, fights, or conflicts with other Reviewers or with the public regarding Raves & Reviews. All Reviewers are required to conduct themselves at all times in a professional, dignified, educated, literate, kind, and helpful manner. Any member caught or reported engaging in hateful, unprofessional, abusive, conspiratorial, propagandist, misleading, nationalist, elitist, racist, fascist, bigoted, or reputation-damaging behavior will be permanently banned.

✦ All Reviewers are bound by public disclosure regulations. All Reviewers must disclose that they are acting in a capacity of a referrer in any and all marketing media. You must take care that all copy is clear, honest, truthful, and in no manner misleading.

✦ Do not make any false claims about the amount of income you have made (or not made). If you make specific claims, you are required by U.S. law to provide documented proof of this amount upon request or you are committing fraud. 

✦ All Reviewers who act in the capacity of vending Reviewer membership subscriptions must act in accordance with the legal boundaries of a Self Employed individual. You do not work for Raves & Reviews. You work for yourself should you vend Reviewer membership subscriptions and all compensation goes directly to you. Raves & Reviews is not involved in any financial transactions between you and your referred subscribers. Vending Reviewer memberships is strictly optional. You are not required to offer Reviewer memberships. The authorization to do so is included in your Reviewer membership.

✦ In the event you are contacted by any media outlet for interviews or requests for information regarding Raves & Reviews, you are required to forward all media inquiries to helpdesk@ravesandreviews.com.

✦ All Reviewers must comply with U.S. federal Copyright and Trademark laws. Do not, under any circumstances, create any website, external profile, or marketing materials that in any manner replicate the Raves & Reviews website, copy, graphics, or media. Do not attempt to pass off any authorized Raves & Reviews media material as your own.

✦ Do not use the likeness of any Raves & Reviews Reviewer or nonmember: e.g. face, name, business, or identifying information for promotional purposes. Doxing is absolutely, unequivocally prohibited.

✦ All Reviewers who vend Reviewer membership subscriptions must comply with your country’s tax regulations. If your locality requires that you collect a sales tax on a subscription, you must include that in your checkout setup with PayPal. You are responsible for keeping accurate financial records and paying your required taxes. As you would be taxed as a self-employed individual, you must report all income from all sources, regardless of the amount. If necessary, you should consider hiring a tax professional to assist you.

✦ Do not violate the Raves & Reviews brand standards. Do not use our brand logos, trademarks, trade names, or present our work as your own. Any and all marketing material authorized for use in public promotions will be issued exclusively by Raves & Reviews and made available in your Account Dashboard. Do not create your own. In the event that you have a creative idea for a brand “upgrade,” you are welcome to submit your suggestions to Raves & Reviews for consideration. Raves & Reviews is under no obligation to make any changes we do not deem necessary.

✦ Do not use the Raves & Reviews brand or graphics for any unauthorized advertisement, or promotional materials referencing Raves & Reviews, nor in any testimonials. The extent of authorized use of the Raves & Reviews brand materials is outlined and specified in your Account Dashboard. If you do not see it, then assume it is not permitted. If you are unsure, contact Raves & Reviews and ask.

✦ Do not use the title Raves & Reviews in any website or email to suggest it is an official Raves & Reviews web property or correspondence. This includes business cards, posters, promotional cards, stationery, merchandise, clothing, telephone listings, email, forwarding services, local classified ads, craigslist marketing, or internet marketing, non-exclusively.

✦ Raves & Reviews has full access to all Reviewer accounts on the back end and does not require the use of passwords or usernames to do so. Raves & Reviews will never send email or place phone calls to you requesting your account credentials in order to access your account. We may request some specific information from an internal contact source to assist with account-related issues. If you receive email or calls appearing to be from Raves & Reviews requesting your log-in or account credentials, know this is not sent nor authorized by Raves & Reviews and Raves & Reviews will not be accountable to you for any criminal misuse of any information you have provided them.

These Code of Conduct rules and policies may be updated at any time. It is your responsibility to periodically check for updates. 

If you are unsure, please get in touch and ask first.

If you do not agree with these rules and Code of Conduct, do not join or use Raves & Reviews.

By completing the registration process, you will have access to your membership subscription for a period of one month or one year from the purchase transaction date of your subscription. All Reviewer membership subscriptions will automatically renew with PayPal.

Reviewers are not authorized to offer free Reviewer membership subscriptions except during official Raves & Reviews promotions when Reviewers will be provided with a special code and link for free, lifetime Reviewer memberships. Reviewers are not required to offer free, lifetime Reviewer memberships. Any Reviewer reported or caught giving away free Reviewer membership subscriptions at any other time will have their own, and all referred accounts, permanently banned. One Strike violation policy in effect. No exceptions.

Credit card or billing information is not collected, stored, or maintained by or on behalf of Raves & Reviews.

Your information will be provided by you directly to PayPal, and their policies will apply. If the renewal payment is not made, your subscription will expire and you will no longer have access to the Reviewer membership benefits, nor access to the Raves & Reviews website and account.

The Reviewer membership subscription fee quoted in Section d is exclusive of any applicable taxes. You must include the requisite taxes with the subscription payment. Raves & Reviews reserves the right to accept or refuse membership registration at our sole discretion. You will be billed separately for any vouchers or other products or services you purchase from Raves & Reviews during your membership subscription period, as these additional purchases are not included in the Reviewer membership subscription fee.

e. Registration And Renewal

When you purchase a Reviewer membership subscription directly through the Raves & Reviews website, your subscription is automatically registered for a period of one (1) month from the date of receipt of the monthly subscription fee payment. 

When you purchase your Reviewer membership subscriptions through an authorized Reviewer, your referring Reviewer will be solely responsible for securing your renewal reminders throughout your subscription term.

You are encouraged, but not required, to renew your Reviewer membership subscription with the Reviewer through which you originally joined. If this option is unavailable, or your referring Reviewer has not submitted a deactivation request within 90 days, you may continue to enjoy your ongoing Reviewer membership indefinitely. Deactivation requests later than 90 days will not be honored.

f. Cancellation Of The Reviewer Membership Subscription

The Raves & Reviews website account membership is part of accessibility on the platform, thus if the Reviewer membership subscription is canceled, the account on the Raves & Reviews website will likewise be terminated.

Cancellation by You:  Membership Subscription can be canceled at any time during the subscription period. Doing so will effectively end your Raves & Reviews account membership and remove all of your details and data from the system. Your account will be permanently removed and you will lose all access to your Raves & Reviews member dashboard as well as the ability to view listed offers. You will lose any time left on your membership. If you wish to join Raves & Reviews again, full annual subscription fees will apply.

Cancellation by Us: Raves & Reviews may, in its sole discretion, cancel your Raves & Reviews account membership and terminate this Agreement if you breach any provision of this Agreement. If Raves & Reviews terminates this Agreement due to your breach, Raves & Reviews will have no liability nor responsibility to you, and Raves & Reviews will not refund any amounts that you have previously paid for your membership subscription. 

Your membership includes both the subscription with PayPal and the membership account on the Raves & Reviews website. You can delete your account membership but your subscription will remain in effect until you cancel it through your PayPal account itself under automatic transactions.

Please note that if Raves & Reviews finds a reason to reject your account registration or decline your website membership it will do so during your 30-Day Free Trial and not after payment has been processed. Raves & Reviews may permanently ban your account at any time thereafter for violations of the Raves & Reviews Terms & Conditions.

g. Refunds

As there is no physical nor digital commodity being transferred, and membership is based strictly on accessibility to exclusive members-only areas and publishing permissions, for subscription payments made between you and Raves & Reviews through PayPal, the policy is as follows:

Raves & Reviews may offer a 30 Day Free Trial to allow Reviewers to become acquainted with the plan, permissions, and accessibility, where members may cancel their membership subscriptions through PayPal in order to prevent the automatic monthly or annual payment from proceeding on the first day after the end of the 30 Day Free Trial period.

As no monies have been exchanged, no refund requests will be honored.

Cancellations and Refund requests submitted up to 3 business days after the first monthly payment has been processed are eligible for a partial refund of 25% of the payment, provided you have not published content, uploaded media or assets to our servers, nor submitted reviews or content posts within the 3 business day period.

Any active use of the website resources beyond accessing Raves & Reviews or your account and profile customization constitutes your agreement to waive any claim to a full refund as of the date of use of the site resources.

Any cancellations from 4 days continuing are not eligible for a refund in any amount.

By continuing to join Raves & Reviews in any capacity, you expressly agree to and accept these terms and shall waive all rights to request and receive any refund of any amount, in full or in part, as of any active use of the Raves & Reviews website and/or as of the 4th-day post membership subscription payment eligibility window. 

When the subscription is canceled, your account on the Raves & Reviews website will be deleted and you will no longer have access to the account, content, profile, or the opportunity to continue vending Reviewer membership subscriptions. All subscriptions acquired up to the cancellation belong to you and may or may not be renewable by the referred subscribers.

When a Reviewer membership subscription is canceled under a referral, you may submit a Referral Account Deactivation request, providing verification of the canceled subscription, at which time the canceling member’s account will be temporarily deactivated or deleted and all content removed.

Because the Referral Program is designed to compensate participating Reviewers directly at the point of sale for signing up new Reviewers, Raves & Reviews does not offer refunds on membership subscriptions collected by its eligible Reviewers. Individual Reviewers may issue refunds, in part or in full, according to terms set forth at their sole discretion. Raves & Reviews does not get involved in private sale disputes, conflicts, or policies outside the scope of the Reviewer Vendor program. 

h. Commercial Self Promotion

Reviewers are afforded a number of avenues of marketing and promotion as a primary benefit of their membership. These avenues may include but are not limited to, the exposure and traffic resulting from exclusive discounted offers, paid sponsorship marketing and advertising, and viral, word-of-mouth promotion by our Reviewers, and the public at large.

Your Reviewer membership subscription affords you the following authorization and eligibility status:

The authorization to use Raves & Reviews website to earn affiliate commissions on reviews
The authorization to publish and earn revenue from blog content on the Raves & Reviews website
The authorization to use Raves & Reviews website for self-promotion and to earn revenue from directing visitors offsite to make purchases
The authorization to use Raves & Reviews website to promote and earn revenue from Sponsorship marketing and advertising
The authorization to earn subscription revenue for referring new Reviewers

In brief, the membership subscription allows all Reviewers to use the website platform to self-promote and earn revenue at no additional expense beyond the monthly membership subscription. Raves & Reviews imposes no transaction fees, no hidden fees, and no processing fees for the Reviewer’s use of the platform for commercial purposes. All rates for sponsorship, marketing, and advertising are set and handled exclusively by the Reviewer.

It is up to the member to learn and abide by his or her state’s tax laws and requirements, and to pay taxes on all sales at their own discretion. Raves & Reviews does not pay wages, salaries, commissions, or any form of recurring financial endorsements or compensations to Reviewers for the sale of its Reviewer membership subscriptions and is not responsible for paying taxes on the earnings, income, or revenue of any Reviewer.

FAQ

Can I join now and pay later?

Yep! Raves & Reviews offers a 30 Day Free Trial to make it easy to get started free. Reviewer Vendors are not required to offer the standard 30 Day Free Trials and may do so at their sole discretion.

What makes the Raves & Reviews Referral Program superior to other referral-type programs?

The Referral Program is for entrepreneurial-minded individuals who are interested in earning a significant recurring monthly income by bringing more Reviewers into the Raves & Reviews family.

Since our participating Reviewer Vendors do the work of bringing new Reviewers, we believe that they should be rightly compensated for their efforts.

The way we see it is this: if you invest your time and energy in helping promote someone else’s company you should be adequately compensated for your efforts. We feel adequate compensation is 100% of the money accrued in the transaction, as opposed to some low percentage so you can do all the work and we can get free labor. That’s a bad business model that breeds resentment and poor quality effort.

Most all affiliate or referral programs suffer from the bad model of expecting the referrers to put out the maximum effort and out-of-pocket expense, only to receive a tiny percentage of revenue that amounts to less than minimum wage in most cases. The end result is the referrers become discouraged, burn out, and move on to something else to milk the novelty instead of the sustainability.

With Raves & Reviews, our Reviewer Vendors get to keep 100% of the subscription payments from every Reviewer they bring to the Raves & Reviews family. There’s no catch, no hidden “gotchas” and no-nonsense. 

We’re fine if you make all the money you want to make. We want you to succeed. 

If it’s win/win for you, it’ll be win/win for Raves & Reviews, which can be everywhere at once!

How do I get paid?

All participating Reviewers who will be offering Reviewer membership subscriptions will need an active PayPal Business account set up to send and receive subscription payments. No other processor is available at this time. 

When do I get paid?

You will get paid as fast as PayPal releases the funds into your account. Your transaction will appear in your PayPal balance within a few minutes of processing. Transferring to your bank usually takes 3-5 business days. If you maintain a PayPal balance and have a PayPal debit card, you have immediate access to your funds as soon as the transaction is processed. Be aware that PayPal sometimes places a hold on funds being held in the member’s account up to 180 days and that Raves & Reviews has no influence nor authority to amend that policy. Should your funds be placed on hold, you are encouraged to contact PayPal directly and negotiate the release of your funds in a more timely manner.

What is a chargeback?

This is when a Reviewer cancels their Reviewer membership subscription through PayPal after the payment has been processed. If it is within the allowable window noted in our Refund Policy, PayPal will take the funds back from the referring Reviewer’s account (or bank) and return it to the departing former member. PayPal may charge an additional fee. Please refer to PayPal’s chargeback policy to learn more. Raves & Reviews does not claim any chargebacks as it offers no commissions in a traditional sense. Funds are held until the Refund window closes before being released in a lump sum. It is then less likely that PayPal will side with the departing former member who requests a refund beyond our outlined policy that the Reviewer did agree to upon joining.

You are responsible for any cancellations or chargebacks. Raves & Reviews will not compensate any Reviewer vendor for subscription cancellations.

Do I lose my Reviewer status if all of my referred Reviewer subscribers cancel?

No. You only lose your Reviewer status if you cancel your own Reviewer membership subscription before it expires, or choose to not renew. Your referred Reviewer membership subscriptions belong to your account, not ours. You would lose their subscription payment only if and when they cancel their Reviewer membership subscriptions made through you.

Can I offer a different free trial term?

No. Reviewers may only offer 30 Day Free Trials and may only offer the Free Trial once per referred Reviewer.

What’s your policy on promoting affiliate products or other business opportunities?

All Reviewers may promote affiliate merchandise in the respective authorized categories and must include a public-facing disclaimer acknowledging the affiliate merchandise being promoted. 

Promoting affiliate program sign-ups is strictly prohibited for any member group and will result in a permanent account ban.

Will you host my downloadable content?

Raves & Reviews is not a content host provider. Aside from profile or cover images and certain entry content, Raves & Reviews does not permit uploadable assets to our servers. Images, videos, or other files must be hosted remotely and linked to from the designated post area.

Where is the shopping cart? How do I order products or services featured in a review?

Raves & Reviews does not stock nor warehouse merchandise on behalf of our vendors. Any offers made available from our Reviewers are processed off-site at the vendor’s processor or shopping cart of choice. Raves & Reviews is a reviews site.

Do we have sponsors? Is this an MLM or Pyramid Scheme?

No. Raves & Reviews offers a direct membership sign-up. Our Referral model simply yields 100% of the membership subscription revenue to the referring member for all of their direct referrals. You are under no obligation to refer new members. 

Can I become a Reviewer if I live in another country? 

Raves & Reviews is available to all PayPal Approved Countries & Currencies
