Security and data protection is our top priority, built into the fabric of our services.
Review Your Politician uses a combination of technology and people to protect all data on our platform, to combat against fake reviews and to deliver a secure service for everyone. We implement strict security policies to verify all reviews are from real UK voters, while also respecting a voter’s right to privacy.
We take security, privacy and the verification process very seriously, combatting fake reviews and protecting all data on our platform. Security and data protection is our top priority, built into the fabric of our services.
Secure (SSL) Connection
We use an SSL connection on www.reviewyourpolitician.com. SSL is an approved security technology for establishing an encrypted (HTTPS) connection between a web server and a browser. In practical terms, it means that any information you provide or access on our system remains private.
To submit a review, we require verification via Facebook, SMS (text) message or email, with no exceptions. We also require authentication using a username and password to access our private access area and to reply to reviews. Other security practices include logging an IP address to protect against illegal activity, fake reviews or misuse.
No technology and automated system is full proof. That's why we put human judgement, alongside technology, at the centre of our service. Real people working alongside smart technology. In the event of a review being reported by any persons, our team will manually investigate and approve or disapprove the review.
We insist on strong passwords being used, not just by users visiting our website or services, but also by all employees using our platform. What does a strong password look like? An example would be one that is a minimum of 12 characters in length, includes numbers, symbols, capital letters, and lower-case letters (e.g. 'TinyComputer$572').
With the help of Cloudflare, other third-party technologies, and alongside using SSL encryption, we implement the enterprise-grade Web Application Firewall (WAF) on our website and services - guarding against hacks, malware, DDoS attacks, and to prevent attackers from compromising sensitive user data.
Despite the best efforts of a company, using the highest-level security procedures available, no security measures can guarantee 100% protection against data loss or misuse. That's why we've put strict data protection and backup strategies in place, ensuring that all information on our website is kept safe at all times.
Fake Review Detection
Truth and trust are at the heart of our service. Our dedicated team work hard to protect our service from fake reviews. We use a combination of technology, human judgement and a range of data to combat against fake reviews. Every review is authenticated by our team, from day one.
We not only ensure the secure transfer of data on our website using technology, but we also take our commitment to privacy rights seriously. In particular, ensuring we comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), focusing on implementing processes that are trustworthy and transparent as it relates to the information we process.
