Each customer will be asked to provide feedback in respect of the performance of each successful business at the conclusion of each project. This feedback will take the form of a positive or negative assessment which we call the Service Score. The mark is in relation to specific aspects of your service performance and may include a general comment.
Each Service Score will appear every time that business quotes on a project on the Kinder Caring website. Details of a business’ Service Score in respect of each project they complete through the Kinder Caring website will also appear and be available for customers to peruse.
The Service Score and comments are an integral part of Kinder Caring.
A low Service Score and/or a negative comment can adversely affect the ability of a business to successfully quote on future projects.
As a user of the Kinder Caring website, you should be careful when scoring a project and providing comment. The Service Score and comments are a powerful tool, may constitute published information to the world at large and can have a dramatic affect and other consequences on the reputations and the success of individuals and businesses that use the Kinder Caring website.
You should ensure that the Service Score and comments you provide are fair, balanced and truthful.

Kinder Caring does not, by allowing a Service Score or comment to remain on the Kinder Caring website, endorse, concur with or otherwise comment on that Service Score or comment. The Service Score and comment are made by the user that places them on the Kinder Caring website and not Kinder Caring.
In Australia and other countries, Service Scores and certain comments may be considered defamatory of the reputation and standing of individuals and businesses. You acknowledge and agree that Kinder Caring accepts no responsibility for liability, damage, injury or loss that may arise from the posting on the Kinder Caring website of a Service Score or a comment and you, by these Conditions of Use, release forever and indemnify Kinder Caring from any liability it may incur arising out of (whether directory or indirectly) any Service Score or comment you post on the Kinder Caring website.
