These are the official posting guidelines ("Site Guidelines") for www.realcoursereview.com website, application, or other interactive services ("Site”). The Site is owned, operated, and/or provided by TobyX Corp. (“TobyX," "we," "us," or "our") and these Site Guidelines are a part of, and an Additional Terms under, our Terms & Conditions.
Real Course Review is the largest online destination for students to research and rate courses from colleges, universities, and other educational institutions across the world. Our mission is to provide a safe forum to share real course experiences to help peer students during their course selection process.
The Real Course Review website (www.realcoursereview.com) and mobile app provide user generated feedback on courses they take in each institution.
Course ratings should only be posted by users who have taken the course from the institution or who are currently taking the course at the institution. For each course, users are limited to posting one (1) comment. All ratings should only be posted by students who have attended or are currently attending a specific course, college, or university being rated.
Real Course Review is NOT the place to report dangerous, illegal, or illicit behaviors. If you believe that you, another instructor, or a student is in danger, we strongly advise you to report such incidences directly to your campus authorities or local law enforcement.
Real Course Review has a team of moderators who read every rating submitted. We have defined site guidelines to help reinforce our mission and most importantly to ensure our decisions around moderation are 100% consistent, regardless of student or instructor. Our moderators are experts on our guidelines and will remove any comment that doesn’t comply.
Did we miss something? If you feel an inappropriate comment should be removed from the site, we want to know. You can flag a comment for re-review and it will immediately be escalated to our moderators. Moderators will determine whether to remove the rating permanently or restore it to the website. Our moderators will never edit a rating to make it comply or remove a rating simply because it is a low score or negative review.
If you see a rating that you believe violates these Site Guidelines, please click the "report this review" at the bottom of the comment and state the problem. Such comments will be evaluated by the Site's personnel. Please do not flag a rating just because you disagree with it.
Real Course Review occasionally receives removal demands that include threats to sue Real Course Review. To date, no one has followed through with a lawsuit against us for our reviews.
The law protects Real Course Review from legal responsibility for the content submitted by our users, like the reviews that appear on our site. pecifically, in the United State, the Communications Decency Act of 1996 (47 U.S.C. Sec. 230) created a federal immunity to any cause of action that would make service providers, like Real Course Review, liable for information originating with a third-party user of the service.
The law is clear on this: Anyone who wishes to sue Real Course Review for the reviews posted by our member risks penalties imposed by the court. These may include financial sanctions and reimbursement of our attorney's fees for our having to defend against a lawsuit that ignores obvious legal protections for Real Course Review.
If despite our caution, you feel that legal action is the only recourse for you, our address for service of legal process is:
