Feedback policies

As a consequence of Registration and use of Services all Users consent to inclusion in the Farm Fayre feedback, &/or ratings, program. Feedback is an open forum where Members can leave comments about their experiences. It’s important to remember that, in most cases, the Feedback you leave is permanent. The Feedback feature is a very important function of Farm Fayre into the Future, as it allows Users whom are best in class to be rewarded (via higher expected price for Livestock). Therefore we request of Users to treat it with the respect and regard to which it is due, and that all feedback be delivered in good faith. The following are strictly prohibited:
  • Feedback Extortion
    • Buyers aren’t allowed to use threats of poor Feedback or low detailed seller ratings to get something that wasn’t part of the original listing.
    • Sellers aren’t allowed to demand positive Feedback from buyers.
  • Feedback Manipulation
    • Users are not allowed to exchange Feedback for the sole purpose of increasing Feedback scores, gaining privileges, or enhancing reputation.
    • Buyers are not allowed to attempt to damage a seller’s Feedback through a series of repeat purchases, or to leave negative comments with a positive Feedback rating.
  • Feedback Amendment
    • Ratings and comments are generally a permanent part of a member’s Feedback Profile. However, Farm Fayre reserve the right to remove, or adjust, Feedback at their sole discretion for long-term benefit of the Platform.
If you consider that feedback you have received is false or misleading you may Contact Farm Fayre and request intervention.
