Red Tortoise believes that ratings and reviews are critical in helping others make informed decisions about our services. We invite all of our clients to leave reviews for our website. We make every effort to provide a fair and balanced forum for clients to discuss their views. These ratings and reviews are considered testimonials by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Each testimonial was given by a current client of Red Tortoise at the time of the review and reviews are not compensated. There is no guarantee another individual’s experience will be positive or similar to the individual providing this testimonial.
All clients are invited to review our firm. Reviews are presented unedited and may be rejected for publishing based on Red Tortoise’s policies regarding ratings and reviews which are listed below or to comply with our legal obligations. These policies are subject to modification without notice and our updated policies will be posted here. Reviews become the property of Red Tortoise and all published and unpublished reviews are available for inspection by regulators.
All published ratings are included in the calculation of our total average rating. We do not include rejected or non-published content when calculating the overall average rating.
Clients generally respond to an internal Red Tortoise survey request and rate the firm based on their satisfaction with Red Tortoise on a scale of 1 to 5 (1 = extremely dissatisfied to 5 = extremely satisfied). Client experiences may vary and working with Red Tortoise is not a guarantee of future financial results. Investors should not consider this rating a substitute for their own research and evaluation of Red Tortoise’s qualifications. Clients who write a review give us explicit permission to publish their review on our Web Site. Clients may also revoke their permission and request the removal of their review by contacting us at email@example.com.
Our Ratings and Reviews policy:
We do not allow content to harass other people or businesses, or encourage others to participate in harassment.
We believe that all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, disability, age, nationality, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, caste, or any other protected status, have a right to access information and participate in its exchange without being subjected to hate speech. Do not include content that includes any form of hate speech.
We allow content that describes negative experiences in a respectful manner.
Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
We do not allow content that contains Personally Identifiable Information such as credit card details, name, email address, medical records, or government–issued identification—whether yours or someone else’s.
PII can be Sensitive or Non-sensitive. Sensitive PII is information that can identify a person uniquely. Your Social Security number is an example of sensitive PII. Non-sensitive PII includes race, gender, zip code and other information that alone cannot determine a person’s identity but can be linked to successfully recognize an individual. The definition of PII can also depend on where you live in the world.
Red Tortoise may reject a post that it, in its sole discretion, believes violates laws and regulations regarding Personally Identifiable Information.
We do not allow content that contains alternative names for a person or organization where the content is attempting to mislead others.
False, inaccurate, or deceptive information can cause significant harm to individuals, businesses, and society. For that reason, we don’t allow users to post misinformation.
