    moneysupermarket.com Content & Community Standards

    moneysupermarket.com Content Standards

    We appreciate your participation in our discussion forums, user reviews, and other interactive areas of our website. Sit down, make yourself a cup of tea and have a read of the following important information…

    The forums are provided free of charge for moneysupermarket.com customers to share experiences and to find help and advice.

    Your participation in our discussion forums, user reviews, and other interactive areas of our website, is subject to the standards described here in addition to those set out in our Terms of Use. Please make sure you are familiar with them. If you do not agree to these standards, you are not permitted to post or upload any information.


    The Five Community Standards

    1. Be respectful – Respect all forum members and their opinions. Please do not post duplicate messages or post in capital letters – members regard this as shouting. Do not use obscene language including characters such as *, !, ?, #, or $ to replace letters. Remember that differences of opinion or a misunderstanding can be resolved without name-calling, insults and bullying.

    2. Be legal – Do not make unproven or unfounded allegations against a company or individual. Be very careful using words such as “con”, “scam”, “fraud”, “cheat”, “swindle”, “thieves”, “crooks”, “criminals”, “deceit” or similar - regardless of the emotion you may be feeling. Consider your words carefully – don’t exaggerate or use innuendo. You are legally responsible for your posts and must be able to prove – in a court of law – that what you are posting has not caused damage to the reputation of the company or individual and is a true statement. Do not post a comment on an upcoming or on-going court case – you may be in contempt of court.

    3. Be responsible – Remember that any advice or information given is the opinion of the forum member. Please be aware that some members may claim expertise or status that they do not possess; it is your sole decision whether you follow any advice. Do not deliberately mislead members with false, inaccurate or incorrect information. Do not provide any opinion unless it is genuinely held. Do not advertise services or attempt to solicit business through the forum area. Do not engage in off-topic political or religious discussion. Do not impersonate a forum member or moneysupermarket.com employee.

    4. Be reasonable – Do not post any copyrighted, unlawful, defamatory, discriminatory, insulting, vulgar, obscene or otherwise objectionable messages or material. Do not attempt to promote or publicise companies considered to be in direct competition with moneysupermarket.com. For customer service issues with moneysupermarket.com, please email our team on customerservices @ moneysupermarket.com. Please do not post links to alternative forums: it doesn't really help our members see if/how the problem was resolved.

    5. Be up-front – Email addresses and links to websites should not be posted on the forum. If you wish to contact other forum members - or you are happy for them to contact you - place your details in your profile. These must be personal email addresses or websites and not for commercial or business use. We do allow links to assist with a particular user query or help with further understanding but they must be to independent, governmental or professional bodies only. We will remove links to auction websites, sites containing 'Ads by Google' and any which we consider to be an attempt to generate revenue.

    In other words: Be nice. Keep it clean. Be legal. Stay on topic. No spam. Thanks!

    Breaking the Community Standards

    If we believe you have violated these standards or the Terms of Use, we may take whatever action we consider appropriate, including editing or removing your posts or, in the case of severe or repeated violations, revoking your posting privileges or terminating your membership.

    Whilst we do not moderate user generated content, we actively monitor postings. Each post expresses the individual views of the author of that particular post and not the views of moneysupermarket.com, the Community Editor or any entity associated with this website. We may, at any time, and without prior or post warning, close and/or remove discussions on message boards, as we feel appropriate. No discussion will be entered into.


    We reserve the right to close, delete, edit, refuse to post, amend, modify or remove (without notice) anything you post at our sole discretion for any reason, including without limitation any posting that in our sole opinion breaches these standards.

    You agree that we may disclose your identity (including your name, email address and contact details) if required to do so by law, any court, the Financial Services Authority, the Office of Fair Trading or any other applicable regulatory, compliance, Governmental or law enforcement agency.
