Complaints & Disputes Procedure
We try to attain best levels of service but we feel it is important that a Complaints Procedure be outlined for such rare events. If you have a complaint related to any aspect of our operations, then we strongly advise that you send in a detailed email to admin@SEO-Advisors.com or post to address (see contact us page for details) providing the following details:
1.) Nature of the complaint/comment
2.) Confirm the person &/or department you are complaining about, outlining what you consider they did wrong
3.) Please give specifics & any evidence how you have been affected by this issue
4.) How you feel we can resolve this issue
5.) Any other information you feel is related & important
Upon receiving the complaint, please allow at least 10 working days for us to get back to you with any further queries or an answer. Please note that points 1 through to 4 are mandatory, without any of which, the complaints procedure cannot be logged officially on our systems.
After receiving our official response, if you are still unhappy with the response then you have the right to escalate the matter for the attention of the Company Directors. This is undertaken via a face to face meeting (for companies within Birmingham) or via telephone (for companies residing outside Birmingham). This meeting is a final step avenue where you can discuss your points as required with final decision makers. Our complaints & disputes procedure is robust & is proven to resolve matters on behalf of a client looking for a reasonable resolution. If you are still not happy with the solution provided, we strongly recommend an independent mediation.
As a company, we wish to retain Clients & will do our best in this regard. However, the complaints procedure is there to ensure that all Clients have access to a sincere & transparent avenue to air their complaints / comments & allow both parties to arrive at a mutually beneficial solution.
As a Client you have options to other methods of resolving the matter however, not engaging with the complaints procedure as the first port of call will be seen as not being sincere in resolving any issues, this will also form part of any defence we deem fit, reflecting reluctance on behalf of the Client to arrive at a solution.
