Submission guidelines

Introduction

  • Any content submitted to the ratemyservice.co.ke website, application or other interactive service provided by Custometrix Ltd (collectively "Site," "we," "us" or "our") by email, postings on this Site or otherwise, including any reviews, questions, photographs or videos, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like contained in any submissions collectively refer to as "Submissions".
  • These are the guidelines set forth below (collectively, the “Submission guidelines”) for Submissions and form part of our Terms of Use and are applicable to both service providers (recipient of the Submission) as well as their existing or potential customers (provider of the Submission).
  • By accessing or using this Site in any manner, you agree to be bound by the Terms of Use and Submission guidelines; and represent that you have read and understood them.

Guidelines

  • We believe in free speech, transparency, honest and clear communication. Therefore, we ask for Submissions that are truthful, clear, and helpful to both the Submission’s recipient and the wider ratemyservice.co.ke community irrespective of whether the Submissions are favourable or not.
  • Submissions are a way for customers and service providers to share their experiences with the community. Any attempt to use Submissions to force a user to do something they aren’t obligated to do is a misuse of Submissions, and is strictly prohibited.
  • Submissions should not be used in an attempt to force a service provider to provide refunds, compensation, or a reciprocal Submission.
  • Service providers are not allowed to require their customers to leave a positive Submission, or to revise a Submission in exchange for a partial or full refund, compensation, or reciprocal Submission. The service provider also cannot offer free or discounted services in exchange for a customer revising an existing Submission.
  • If a customer contacts a service provider with a problem, the service provider should make every effort to resolve it. The service provider cannot ask the customer to take specific actions related to a Submission in exchange for the resolution of the problem.
  • Submissions should be honest, factual and objective, reflecting a user’s personal experience with a service provider rather than be based on hearsay or someone else's opinions or for the sole purposes of tarnishing or enhancing a service provider’s reputation.
  • Submissions should be proof read before submitting. Poor spelling will not cause your rating to be removed. However, poor spelling may result in your rating being discredited by those who read it.
  • Any submissions received in all capitals will automatically be rejected.
  • Submissions should reflect positive experiences as well as constructive criticism related to negative experiences.
  • We currently do not accept Submissions related to hotels and restaurants.
