3.1. Defamatory comments on ratings are not permitted and could have legal consequences as the ratings are visible in a public forum.
3.2. You may not abuse the rating system. Abuse of the system includes using accounts of your friends or your own secondary accounts to lower the rating score of another member or raise your own rating score.
3.3. Threatening, abusive, racially vilifying, discriminatory or profane language is also abuse of the system and is not allowed.
3.4. Completed trades may be archived after 3 months from the date when the transaction was completed. Users will still be able to view archived transactions on their profile, but they might not be able to edit or create ratings once the trade has been archived.
4. Removal of Ratings:
We would like to promote and preserve free speech and therefore will remove feedback only in exceptional circumstances. ISD reserves the right to delete any rating at its sole discretion upon an investigation into the rating (although we are not obliged to do so).
If you feel that you have received an unfair rating or you have evidence of any abuse of the Rating System, please contact our customer service department and we will investigate the matter.
4.1. Circumstances where ISD may delete a rating include, but are not limited to:
4.1.1. if the rating contains any links to other pages or images or contains information not related to interacting with the user on ISD in accordance with the Rating Criteria;
4.1.2. if the rating contains adult material or profane, abusive, racially vilifying, discriminatory or threatening language;
4.1.3. if we are required by law to do so;
4.1.4. if the rating falls outside the rating rules as set out in paragraph 1 and 2 of this document.
