Incentives for reviews
We do not offer incentives for customers to submit reviews. If you are considering doing this for your business, please be aware of your responsibilities. Example information by the ACCC can be found here.

If we believe a business or individual is behaving in a manner that goes against the three principles outlined above, or is otherwise unlawful, we will attempt to contact that individual, the ACCC or other authorities, where appropriate and/or required.
