About Us


FairComment.com: the Company

FairComment.com is the trading name for FairComment Limited.

FairComment is an organisation dedicated to championing the consumer's rights for fair play in relation to goods or services purchased from, or agreements entered into with, big businesses: in short, we are here, to empower the consumer. FairComment's aims to provide an independent feedback mechanism which offers value to both the consumer and to the business itself.

FairComment allows consumers, as Users to the site, to register and to supply comments: praise, complaints, problems, etc, about goods or services and about the performance of the business in general.

Registration takes the form of you providing a username and e-mail address and we will provide you with a password so that you can login and interact with the site.

FairComment will review comments for accuracy and appropriateness, and will put a selection of comments up on the site next to the profiled company. FairComment reserve the right not to publish a comment if it has evidence that the comment is incorrect, abusive, defamatory or libelous.

FairComment will then provide the comments supplied by the User to the businesses that enter into agreement with us and invite them to respond to the comments raised. Any response will be made available on the site.

If necessary, FairComment may ask you to provide more information in order that we can greater champion your cause with the business.

From time to time FairComment will poll users on items of interest relating to products or services supplied by the businesses profiled on the site. As a result we may ask you for items of personal data, e.g. geographical location, financial and lifestyle information, in order to better understand the concerns of the consumer relating to a product or service. FairComment will then share this information with the business.

If users to FairComment.com have comments they wish to raise about FairComment itself we invite you to do this through the FairComment Feedback page.

Ethical Statement

FairComment believes in free speech and a fair deal and are here to provide a public forum for consumers to air views, praises, complaints and general comment about businesses they purchase from.

A customer is more likely to provide heartfelt comment within an independent, supportive environment and FairComment actively encourage individuals to feel a part of this community so that they and other members can lodge complaints and build a forceful presence that is powerful enough to effect change.

We also believe that the consumer would like to receive a response from the business they comment on and that the business has the right to reply.

The following is a comment from David Benady, deputy editor of Marketing Week:

"In the 70's branding was about low prices, in the 80's it was about high prices and in the 90's it was about value for money. But in future decades, it will be about the social values of the brands themselves.'" [Marketing Week]

At Fair Comment, we aim to play our part in highlighting consumer issues and social values to the brand leaders and give them the opportunity to make a contribution to make a better world for all.

That's "Fair Comment"!
