Terms of Service

Google recently updated their terms of service, and no longer allow the selective solicitation of only positive reviews. Here’s the new policy from Google:

“Don’t discourage or prohibit negative reviews or selectively solicit positive reviews from customers.”

If you would like to opt out of the review encouragement program, delete the Google Reviews link from the Social Media section.
