Review and Change Policy

CyberPatrol uses a combination of technology and human reviews to create an up to date database of categorized web sites. Our proprietary technology uses modular categorization engines that give us the capability to review and categorize web pages. And while technology allows us to deal with a large volume of web sites, human review by our users and internal staff help assure accuracy.

CyberPatrol’s Web Site Review system lets anyone look up a web site and determine how CyberPatrol categorizes it. Users can submit a site for manual review by our research group. Sites are reviewed against criteria defined by our blocked and allowed category lists. If we find that our technology has inaccurately categorized a site, we will make the appropriate change.
