Review Guidelines


We love hearing about your experiences and value your contributions to our site! We also want to make sure that Kakeibo is a safe and trustworthy source for our community. To help us with this goal, and to get your review published as quickly as possible, please ensure your reviews are: 


To maintain a safe, family-friendly environment, we don’t allow profanity or vulgarities in reviews. We also reject reviews that include sexually explicit comments, hate speech, prejudiced language, threats or personal insults. So keep it suitable for all ages! Any reviews that describe reviewer participation in illegal activities, including those that advocate or describe drug use in defiance of local laws, will be removed. We only publish reviews submitted by travellers 18 or older. 

Relevant to Kakeibo

Keep your reviews relevant and helpful to financial service and real estate users – keep in mind that they are reading your review to understand what an experience with the business might be like. For this reason, please don’t include personally insulting language, smear campaigns or any personal opinions about politics, ethics, religion or wider social issues. Kakeibo does not allow reviews that promote intolerance for individuals or groups of people based on their race, gender, religion, sexual preference or nationality. If you have a question or comment for Kakeibo about our moderation policies, you can contact us via email 


Reviews are most helpful when they provide unbiased advice. We don't allow individuals or entities who own or are affiliated with a service provider to publish reviews of their business or competing establishments. Reviews submitted in an attempt to blackmail a listing will not be published. If you suspect a review is fraudulent or doesn’t meet Kakeibo’s posting guidelines, please email us at and let us know about it

Helpful, First-Hand

Our community wants to hear about your experience. This means no second-hand information, rumours or quotations from other sources in your review. Please only provide reviews based on substantial experiences you’ve had and be sure to include enough detail in your review that others will find your advice helpful.


The best reviews are those that are written within the last year of your experience, so we can’t publish reviews for an outdated situation. We want to hear about every transaction you do, but keep in mind that you can only submit one review per experience with a given business provider. Additional reviews for a new experience can be submitted one year after your latest review is published. 


Give us your best, most accurate advice – just make sure it’s yours! Reviews should contain original content and no extensive quoted material from other sources. Any review content plagiarised from other websites, reviewers, emails or printed materials will be removed.


Reviews are designed to provide advice to your fellow users, not to advertise a service or business. Please don’t include commercial or promotional content of any kind. Reviews that are being offered in exchange for personal gain, such as gifts, services or money, will be removed. We reserve the right to reject specific content for any reason. We do not allow reviews that contain links to external websites.

Respectful of Private Information

We respect your privacy and the privacy of the businesses we list. We want you to tell us all about your experience but please keep personal or exclusive information to yourself. We allow names to be published to our site; however, we remove last names using only first letter.  

Easy to Read

Help other potential users get the most out of your review by using the correct alphabet for your language and avoiding machine translations that make your review hard to read. Please don't use HTML tags, excessive ALL CAPS or slang. We have a required character count – fill up the space with details about your experience and avoid content that is not helpful to others.

Kakeibo reserves the right to remove a review or management response at any time, for any reason. The reviews posted on Kakeibo are individual and highly subjective opinions. The opinions expressed in reviews are those of Kakeibo members and not of Kakeibo Ventures Inc. We do not endorse any of the opinions expressed by reviewers or in management responses. We are not affiliated with any establishment listed or reviewed on this web site.

In accordance with our Privacy Policy, Kakeibo does not release anyone's personal contact information.
