Introduction

We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors and service users (both online and offline).

This policy applies where we are acting as a data controller with respect to the personal data of our website visitors and service users; in other words, where we determine the purposes and means of the processing of that personal data.

We use cookies on our website. Insofar as those cookies are not strictly necessary for the provision of our website and services, we will ask you to consent to our use of cookies when you first visit our website.

Our website incorporates privacy controls which affect how we will process your personal data.

Your review and contact details may be passed to care providers or their service provider handling reviews who may use the review for their own purposes, including marketing their services. The term “care provider" may refer to the organisation being reviewed or to a connected head office/subsidiary/franchisor/franchisee. Please see our Review Policy to how we moderate reviews. The legal basis for this processing is our or a third party’s legitimate interests which are to provide website users with the reviews to make informed decisions about selecting care providers, to provide service users and their family/friends a way to leave feedback to care providers and also to enable organisations to receive feedback and show the general public information on the services they offer.

We may process your website user account data ("website user account data"). The website user account data may include your name, email address and telephone number. The data may be processed for the purposes of managing your website user account, receiving survey emails and receiving marketing emails about our website services.

Your rights

In this section, we have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the rights are complex, and not all of the details have been included in our summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights.

Your principal rights under data protection law are:

a) the right to access;

b) the right to rectification;

c) the right to erasure;

d) the right to restrict processing;

e) the right to object to processing;

f) the right to data portability;

g) the right to complain to a supervisory authority; and

h) the right to withdraw consent.

You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your personal data and, where we do, access to the personal data, together with certain additional information. That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee.

You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing; you object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law; the processing is for direct marketing purposes; and the personal data have been unlawfully processed.

In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store your personal data. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.

You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.

You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes on grounds relating to your particular situation, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal data is:

a) consent; or

b) that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract,

and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. In the UK, this is the Information Commissioner’s Office but you may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.

To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.

You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by written notice to us.

3) REVIEW POLICY

If you wish to submit a review for a home care or nursing agency, please click here

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT REVIEWS

- The Review Score is based on user Reviews and the maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the Average Rating on users of all Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1). There are 5 Points available for the total number of positive Reviews in the last 24 months.

- We receive approximately 35% of Reviews through website submission and 65% of Reviews through Review Cards (only available to Enhanced / Premium /Platinum Service subscribers more info).

- We only accept/publish Reviews that are submitted by a Client/Service User or their Friends/Family (cannot be submitted anonymously) and comply with our Content Standards (eg are relevant, informative, civil and do not contain allegations of abuse, negligence or criminal activity).

- Before publication, we check that all reviews comply with our Review Policy and we show all reviews to care providers so that they may make a response to be published with the review.

- The Reviews submitted to our site do not represent our views and we accept no responsibility or liability for any such Reviews.

If you have any feedback or require further information on our reviews, please email reviews@homecare.co.uk or call 01488 684321 and ask for the Review Team.

REVIEW POLICY

General

Our website homecare.co.uk allows users and third parties to post comments and ratings of care provider experiences (“Reviews”). The primary purpose of these Reviews is to help potential service users / clients to find the right home care or nursing agency. The Reviews also provide service users / clients with an opportunity to provide feedback to care providers and for care providers to use this feedback to make improvements.

This is not a formal complaint procedure or to be used for allegations of negligence, abuse or criminal activity. Reviews cannot be submitted anonymously through homecare.co.uk, we require the name and telephone/email of the reviewer and the option to share these with the care provider, so that we can properly authenticate reviews. If you wish to make a complaint or have a serious allegation of negligence, abuse or criminal activity, you should contact the care provider, the relevant regulatory authority or the police.

The views, comments and opinions expressed in the Reviews submitted to our site do not represent our views and we accept no responsibility or liability for any such Reviews. All Reviews are left in accordance with our terms and conditions.

Moderation – Pre-Screening of Reviews

a) The Review is posted online or it is received from a Review Card and then entered onto our system by the Review Team.

b) Reviews that do not comply with the Review Policy are not accepted or published.

The Review Team reject Reviews for the following reasons:

- The Connection of the Reviewer is not valid (see section below ‘Who Can Submit Reviews’).

- The Review does not conform to our Content Standards (see section below ‘Content Standards’).

- The Review is incomplete, e.g. missing comment, missing ratings, missing signature. We can only accept the missing information if given in writing.

Then, an email is sent to the reviewer to say that the review has not been accepted (where we have their email address) and also to the contacts of the care provider record. When a Review is rejected for not conforming to the Content Standards, the email to the Reviewer, states that they can amend and re-submit the Review.

Then an email explaining that the Review has not been accepted is sent to the reviewer and also to the contacts of the care provider record.

c) Reviews that appear to comply with the Review Policy are authenticated with the reviewer:

- We have a number of data checks to authenticate Reviews (submitted from same IP address, same name/email/telephone as a current Review etc..)

- For a number of Reviews, the Review Team telephones/emails the reviewer. If they are a friend/relative they may ask if they can provide the name of the service user for confirmation.

Then:

- If the Review Team cannot authenticate, an email is sent to the contacts of the care provider stating that the Review could not be authenticated.

- If confirmed authentic, then the Review will move to pending publication.

d) Reviews Pending Publication:

When a Review moves into Pending Publication, an email is sent to the contacts of the care provider with a link to the Review. The care provider is informed that the Review will automatically be published after 14 days unless they select one of the following options:

1) Publish Immediately. The Review will be published and email sent to reviewer and to the contacts of the care provider saying the Review is live.

2) Publish adding a response to the Review. The Review Team verify the response to ensure they abide by the terms of the Review Policy and then the Review will be published with an email sent to the reviewer and to the contacts of the care provider saying the Review is live.

During the moderation process, your personal details may be used by us or passed on to the organisation you are reviewing in order to contact you for the purpose of verifying/responding to your review.

Homecare.co.uk will decide, in its sole discretion, whether a Review complies with the Review Policy.

We reserve the right to edit and alter Reviews to ensure that the Review complies with our Review Policy. As a general rule, we will only edit Reviews to remove names from the content of the reviews and to correct spellings or basic grammar.

We will try to publish as many Reviews as we can but cannot guarantee that all Reviews will be published and we may reject a Review with or without giving reasons for such rejection. If homecare.co.uk rejects a Review submitted by you, if you wish, you can edit the rejected Review and resubmit it. We reserve the right to take down at any time any Review.

We cannot guarantee how quickly Reviews will be posted on our site. We try to process the Reviews as quickly as we can, but on occasions, it can take up to 30 days for them to be Published or deemed non compliant with our Review Policy.

The moderation process is identical for care providers we have a commercial relationship with and for those we do not. Care providers must not make reference to their commercial relationship with homecare.co.uk when commenting on reviews to the moderation team. Any such reference will be disregarded by the moderation team in considering whether a review is compliant or not.

We endeavour to ensure that any Reviews posted on the site are fair and that care providers always have an opportunity to provide their own point of view and to make clear where they disagree with anything being said by a reviewer. By engaging with us in this process care providers acknowledge that the Reviews and associated material published together constitute a fair and balanced set of opinions about their services.

Review Responses

The Review Team verify all Review Responses before publication to check they comply with the Content Standards. For the avoidance of doubt, Review Responses must not reveal specific personal information about the reviewer, the service user or a third party (e.g. the person’s diagnosis or treatment) as this may breach data protection legislation (unfair processing of personal or sensitive personal data) and would also be likely to breach the care provider's duty of confidentiality to the reviewer or service user. Review Responses must be submitted within 3 months of the submission date of the relevant review. We try to verify all Review Responses the same working day but we cannot guarantee this.

You will need to provide your email address and/or telephone together with a short explanation why you believe the Review does not comply with our Review Policy.

How Reviews are Submitted

We receive approximately 35% of Reviews through website submission and 65% of Reviews through Review Cards (only available to Enhanced / Premium /Platinum Service Subscribers more info). For the avoidance of doubt, we only accept Review Cards in their original format ie we do not accept photocopies of Review Cards or Review Cards that are scanned and emailed to us. For all reviews submitted online, the reviewer must provide a personal email address.

Multiple Reviews from the same Reviewer


When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, the latest Review replaces the older Review. The older Review is no longer published and does not count towards the Review Score (see below).

Invite to Review

Care providers using the Invite to Review service shall at all times comply with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 in respect of any data including data relating to their customers and relatives of their customers used in requesting and obtaining feedback.

If a customer or relative of a customer no longer wishes to receive electronic requests for feedback for their care provider, they should contact the care provider directly.

Fraudulent Reviews

Homecare.co.uk is committed to ensuring the integrity of the content it collects and provides to its website users.

Any attempts to mislead, influence or impersonate a service user / client or their friend / family is considered fraudulent, and is subject to penalties. Such fraudulent behaviour includes but is not limited to:

i) Attempts by an owner or agent of a home care or nursing agency to boost the reputation of an organisation by:

- Writing a review for their own organisation or for any organisation they own, manage or have a financial interest in.

- Utilising any optimisation company, marketing organisation, or third party to submit reviews

- Impersonating a competitor, a service user or a friend / family of a service user

- Offering incentives or inducements (including discounts, free prize draws or any special treatment) to service users or friends / family of service users in exchange for reviews or to influence the content of a review

- Submitting reviews on behalf of a service user or friend / family of a service user

- Copying in-house comment cards, letters or reviews from other websites and submitting them as reviews

- Selectively soliciting reviews (by e-mail, through the review cards or by any other means) only from service user or friends / family of service user who have had a positive experience

- Pressurising service users or their friends / family to submit a positive review, remove a negative review or to make changes to a review

- Asking service users or their friends / family to remove their reviews in return for a discount or incentive

- Prohibiting or discouraging service users or their friends / family from posting negative or critical reviews of their experience

- Attempts to damage competitors by submitting a negative review

ii) An owner or agent of a home care or nursing agency writing a review on a direct competitor, even if the review describes a genuine experience.

Whilst investigating a potential fraudulent review, we may suspend the review and then we will decide whether to remove it permanently or reinstate it. If we discover a fraudulent review, as well as removing that review, we may also remove all reviews for that care provider / service and any care providers / services in the same group.

To help maintain the integrity of our website, we reserve the right to carry out a full audit of all reviews on a profile page if we are alerted to the possibility of fraudulent reviews or if we are suspicious about reviews (e.g. several reviews submitted with the same handwriting or all reviews have an excellent rating for all categories). When performing an audit, we may ask all or some of the following questions

  1. Did you complete the review card yourself?
  2. Did you submit the review online yourself?
  3. Where did you complete the review?
  4. Were you able to complete it at your leisure?
  5. Did you choose all the ratings yourself?
  6. Were you asked to hand the card back to the care provider (sealed or unsealed) before posting?

Privacy

When you make a Review you will be asked to provide your full name and either your telephone number and/or email address. These details will not be published and will be used to verify/respond to your Review as is necessary. We will retain indefinitely the information / contact details that you provide to us in connection with a particular Review for ongoing verification purposes. We will review our policy on this retention every 2 years. The information may be shared with the care provider but we will not pass on the information to any other third parties.

Reviewers are also asked to provide a 'Display Name' to be shown on the website together with the Review. It is our policy not to publish surnames and where required our Review Team will edit the 'Display Name' appropriately.

Use of your Review

Reviews are published on our website and potentially other selected websites and social media. By submitting a Review to our site, you agree to grant us a non-exclusive, perpetual royalty-free, transferable and sub-licensable licence to use that Review. Although you will still own the copyright in your Review, we will have the right to freely use, edit, alter, reproduce, publish and/or distribute the material contained in your Review. The right to edit and alter the Review will be exercised in order to ensure that the Review complies with the relevant law, this policy and to protect the privacy of individuals. We also have the right to remove Reviews from the site. You further grant us the right to pursue at law any person or entity that violates your or Tomorrows Guides' rights in the Reviews by a breach of these terms. By submitting a Review, you are warranting that you have the right to grant the licence above.

Individual Ratings

There are 6 individual ratings on each review for ‘Overall Standard’, ‘Care/Support’, ‘Treated with Dignity’, ‘Staff’, ‘Management’ and ‘Value For Money’.

For each of these individual ratings, the reviewer can rate a home care or nursing agency: ‘Excellent’, ‘Good’, ‘Satisfactory’, ‘Poor’ or ‘Very Poor’

Review Score

The maximum Review Score for a home care or nursing agency is 10, which is made up of Average Rating of Reviews over all time (maximum of 5 points) and Number of Reviews in the last 24 months (maximum of 5 points):

a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the home care or nursing agency is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The home care or nursing agency receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 24 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with ‘Extremely Likely’ or ‘Likely’ in answer to the question ‘How likely are you to recommend this care provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?’

The 5 points available are broken down as follows: 3.00 points for the first Positive Review, 2 points in total for each of the next 9 Positive Reviews (1st = 3.00, 2nd = 0.50, 3rd = 0.50, 4th = 0.25, 5th = 0.25, 6th = 0.10, 7th = 0.10, 8th = 0.10, 9th = 0.10, 10th = 0.10) ie an Home Care Agency needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 5 points.

If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will be published and count towards the Review Score.

Group Review Score

The Group Review Score is derived from the average of all the Review Scores of its Members with a Review Score. 75%+ Members of the Group must have a Review Score before a Group Review Score can be achieved.

Homecare.co.uk reserves the right to alter or update this policy at any time.
