Complaint handling process
Croft Communications will not consider complaints relating to anything that is out of their control, issues that have been caused by any actions of a 3rd party, or disputes with any personnel not employed by them.
Croft Communications will consider all complaints received from an Eligible Complainant, classified as a person who is:
- An individual / business who has purchased a product or service from Croft Communications
- An individual / business who has been contacted by Croft Communications with a view to sell a product or service
- The complaint arises out of matters relevant to being or having been a customer of Croft Communications
- The complaint arises out of our actions or failure to act where the complainant is a potential customer of Croft Communications
NOTE: A complaint may be made on behalf of an eligible complainant by another party authorised in writing by you.
Informal complaints / comments will be taken by telephone on 01920 466 466, should you wish to formalise your complaint you must do so in writing to “The Managing Director” at the address detailed below.
In the event that we receive a complaint, we will enter it on to our complaint register, which will record the details of your complaint and enable us to track your complaint through to resolution. We will retrieve all the necessary data / information / documentation relevant to you / your sale from our files / systems. This information will be used to assess the complaint and evaluate the best way to resolve your specific issue(s). We will endeavour to respond to and resolve your complaint within ten working days from the date that we receive your written complaint. However, we may need to carry out further internal investigations. If these are required, we will send you a Notice of Investigation letter within 5 working days from when we received your complaint.
The notice of investigation letter will include an explanation of why a different person is responding if it is not the person to whom you addressed your complaint, as well as the name and job title of the individual handling your complaint and a timescale for when we will correspond further which will be no more than 4 weeks from the receipt of your complaint.
We would hope that we would be able to provide you with a full and final response within four weeks from the date that we received your letter of complaint. If after four weeks we are still not in a position to make a response, we will write to you and give reasons for the delay and an indication as to when we expect to provide a full and final response. At this point we will include details of Ofcom to whom you can refer your complaint to if you wish.
Once our investigations are complete we will write to you with our response. This will be either a final response, or an action letter, depending on the circumstances of your complaint.
A Final Response is:
- Where we believe we have fully addressed your complaint.
- Notified you that you may refer the complaint to Ofcom if you are still not satisfied with our response.
An Action Letter is where we consider that we need to act to resolve your complaint, and believe that this will fully address your complaint. This will include an acceptance slip for you to sign and return to us.
We will consider a complaint closed when we have sent you an action letter and received your signed acceptance or our final response, and where you fail to respond to either within four weeks from the date of our final written response / action letter.
Alternative dispute resolution procedure
We work alongside Ofcom approved Ombudsman as an alternative dispute resolution procedure.
Customers are able to seek a resolution from Ombudsman Services when:
- The customer is unhappy with our final response to a complaint.
- Eight weeks have passed since the complaint was made and remains unresolved.
Ombudsman Services will handle the following types of complaint:
- Billing problems,
- Problems resulting from a company’s sales activity,
- Problems resulting from switching from one company to another,
- Poor service, for example, failing to act on a request.
Ombudsman Services are unable to handle complaints about:
- Companies which are not signed up to the Ombudsman scheme,
- The location of telegraph poles or mobile phone masts,
- Problems about cabling and wiring inside a property,
- The content of internet sites, advertisements, calls, emails, texts or any other type of message,
- Complaints about premium rate services.
