Consumer Registration to be an Eviewer – We require all consumers who are rating (Eviewing) businesses to go through a one time registration process. This process is to acquire enough information to hold Eviewers to the same high standards of accountability we expect from business members of Business Eview Network. Our goal is to set a high level of integrity for our ratings and to avoid issues that would provide inaccurate information for any customer. We collect and store your user name (a name that you designate), a valid email address and a password that you create.
