We aim to adhere to the Editors’ Code of Practice and if we have demonstrably failed to do so in anything that we publish we undertake to resolve the situation promptly. Any significant inaccuracy, misleading statement or distortion will be corrected quickly and with due prominence. If appropriate an apology will be published. We use the Editors’ Code of Practice but we are not members of the Independent Press Standards Organisation.
If you are unhappy about an article that has been published on the site in the first instance contact the editor with your concerns. Include your full name, address and phone number in any correspondence.
Our target is that all editors should respond to a complaint within a week of it being sent. If no reply has been received or you are not satisfied with the response then your complaint will be considered by the directors of Neighbour Net Ltd. Forward details to firstname.lastname@example.org. We aim to respond to all complaints at this stage within ten days although this may take longer if it is necessary to obtain legal advice.
If you remain unsatisfied at this stage we will endeavour to arrange low-cost, mutually agreeable and binding arbitration though an independent third party. The initial cost of this would be payable by the complainant but this would be refundable in whole or part if the arbitrator finds that Neighbour Net have not responded to the complaint adequately.
Note: this procedure does not cover complaints about feedback on the directory or posts made on the forum. They should be addressed directly to email@example.com.
