What is an Information Only Profile?
Information Only profiles produce a business profile based on what consumers would readily find about the company on the internet.
It may include contact data for the company if available as well as links to social media, and review sites that contain the business profile if available.
"The Site" will now allow reviews from consumers. The Site admin will also produce compilation reviews based on other review site sources. This will give the consumer information that may not be available unless the business takes out an account.
Users have the responsibility to view all the links, rating, and reviews. The review sites can be positive or negative. See the Better Business Links if they are available. The links can change at any time. The business as an Information Only profile is as it is highlighted " Information Only." Information Only profiles can ask for archival of their listing on demand and Safe and Trusted Canada may also remove a profile by archival as well.
As a business, if your Information Only Profile needs updating, the company can contact The Site. There is no obligation for you to apply for an account, but suggest this as an option to grow your business further at no cost. As a business owner, archival of your business occurs on demand providing you have not violated two key areas of regarding fraudulent listing of credentials or reviews.
An account holder has responsibility and accountability to ensure that they do not place credentials into their profile that they do not possess. The account holder can process reviews from their customers including posting those reviews to their profile. It is essential they do not post reviews for anyone connected with the business directly or indirectly. See Alerts Criteria Applicable to Account Holders.
