Suspension and Notice of Violations
We may immediately suspend use of the AdvoConnection Directory at any time without notice, for actual or suspected violations of the terms contained above.This right is in addition to those other rights of suspension and removal that we otherwise have.
Ratings and Reviews
We reserve the right to publish, or not publish, any rating or review you may post on this site about any profiled advocate. We use these ratings and reviews first and foremost to help listed advocates improve their service to the people who hire them. Secondarily we post those reviews that speak to the skills and successes of an advocate-client relationship.
We do not post reviews that focus on pricing or billing disputes between the client and advocate because they do not relate to the services provided.
Terms of Service Policy Changes
If our information practices change in a significant way, we will post and highlight the policy changes.
