Customer Service Policy
“Constructive Visual” means Constructive Visual Pty Ltd (trading as Constructive Visual) is committed to providing the highest levels of customer service in the industry. It is an unfortunate fact that any business, anywhere in the world, with a rapidly expanding customer base will at some point deal with a customer (or two) who feel they are not getting a satisfactory response to a question they have asked, or believe they are not getting what they paid for.
In order to assist our customers, and to ensure that our customers always receive the highest level of customer service, we have created this policy which outlines what a customer should expect from Constructive Visual, and what Constructive Visual expects from its customers.
1.1. “Constructive Visual” means Constructive Visual Pty Ltd (trading as Constructive Visual) of Western Australia, Australia.
1.2. “Customer” means the person or entity who ordered our services.
1.3. “Service“, “Service(s)” or “Services” means any product(s) or service(s) the Customer has signed up to use. This can include, but is not limited to, the provisioning of space on one of our servers and a connection to and from the internet for web, email, and FTP services to function at the level specified in the chosen service level, domain name registration, or transfer or renewal, SSL, VPS and SMS services. These product(s) and service(s) are identified in full within the “sign up” and “service provision” emails Constructive Visual has sent after your request for service. The specific details of the Services can be found by logging in to “Client Login” or on our website.
