These guidelines (the "Guidelines") apply to any use of LocalMeA's website and app. We refer to users of our website and app throughout the Guidelines as "you" and "your".
1 When can you write a review?
1.1 You can write a review on LocalMeA about a company if you have had a buying or service experience with that company, which means that:
you have purchased a product or service from a company, an organization, a web service, etc. ("the Company"), or
you have placed an order with the Company, or
you can otherwise document your use of the Company's service, including via correspondence or other interaction with the Company.
(these are collectively referred to as "Service Experience" in the following.)
1.2 You may only write about your own personal Service Experience. You are not permitted to write a review about somebody else's Service Experience, such as that of a family member or friend.
1.3 You may not write a review about a Company you have previously owned, currently own, or which an immediate family member currently owns, or if you are an executive or employee of that Company, or work for the Company. Similarly, you may not write a review about a direct competitor to the Company you own, are employed by or work for.
1.4 Your Service Experience with the Company must have occurred within the last 12 months. This means within 12 months from the date on which you write the review. If you have signed up for an ongoing service, the Service Experience begins immediately upon sign up and continues until the service is no longer provided by the Company. You are free to write a review immediately after sign up or at any point up to 12 months after the service ends.
1.5 To write a review on LocalMeA, you need a user profile and account. You may only have one user profile and account. This must be attached to a valid email address that we can use to contact you directly.
2 What should you write about?
2.1 Your review should be about your Service Experience.
2.2 Your review must reflect your own Service Experience from within the last 12 months. You are encouraged to be specific and factual, and include relevant points about your Service Experience, for example ,the customer service and other aspects such as the ordering process and delivery.
2.3 Our Website is for service reviews, not product reviews or reviews about website layout. However, it is acceptable to evaluate the purchased product's functionality and quality, and/or the user-friendliness of the website - provided that your review also mentions your Service Experience.
2.4 If you have been offered an incentive by the Company to write a review, you should include information about this in your review. Incentives include the Company offering you a gift, reward, discount or advantage for writing a review about the Company on our Website.
3 When do we ask you to provide proof of your Service Experience, and what should you send us?
If we need to verify your review, we may contact you and ask for documentation that shows that you have had a Service Experience with the Company that you have reviewed. We therefore recommend that you keep such documentation for 12 months from the date of your review.
