We understand why businesses may find negative reviews unfavourable. However, provided that the review meets our Posting Guidelines, simply disagreeing with a review does not necessitate its removal. ProductReview.com.au does not endorse or make judgments on the factual validity of reviews.
We hope you can understand that as a publishing platform we don't take sides, and that our main goal is to ensure the review is a genuinely held opinion. Instead, we provide you the opportunity to give your side of the story by responding to a review.
The ACCC also states that the omission of reviews can be misleading:
"While it is clearly inappropriate for review platforms to remove negative reviews simply because a reviewed business makes a complaint, review platforms should be responsive to business concerns and react swiftly if evidence suggests that a review does not reflect a genuinely held opinion."
