AUCOMPLAINTS.COM is a virtual Board of Shame, a Board of Complaints, Feedbacks, Claims and Reviews of the Australia.
Every consumer of goods and services can leave on the site AUCOMPLAINTS.COM a claim, a complaint, review or negative feedback on the person, firm, company, shop, service or web-based project, whose actions left this consumer dissatisfied. The reasons for that may be, for example, nonobservance of liabilities, poor performance of works (or providing services), deception, fraud, breach of confidentiality or copyright violation, impairment of one’s honor and dignity, defamation, spamming, etc.
AUCOMPLAINTS.COM is not a public office, government agency or any other government institution. AUCOMPLAINTS.COM is not a commercial organization or a punitive agency. AUCOMPLAINTS.COM does not act as a judge and does not make decisions about the degree of guilt or innocence of the parties. AUCOMPLAINTS.COM does not take any actions associated with the solution of any problems the participants and users of the site might have.
AUCOMPLAINTS.COM allows the complainant and the company, against which a complaint or negative feedback is posted, to resolve the conflict situation on their own in a constructive personal, or (if preferred by the parties), public bilateral dialogue. We hope that the claimant’s desire to redress an injustice and the company's desire to get rid of a negative feedback left publicly will help remove all misunderstandings. Unauthorized persons, if they are not parts of the dispute, have an opportunity to read the dialogue, as well as to comment and express their opinion about the conflict resolution.
AUCOMPLAINTS.COM is an information resource that is designed to inform people.
