SpareFoot Review Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions (the "Review Terms and Conditions") establish the terms that apply to facility reviews that you submit through SpareFoot (the "Website").
By submitting a review of a self-storage facility to SpareFoot, Inc. ("SpareFoot") or responding to any review on the Website, or by submitting a review via [email, an online survey, comment card] or otherwise (each a "review"), you agree to these SpareFoot Review Terms and Conditions.
The term "you" refers to the user submitting a review.
We encourage you to be upfront and honest in your self-storage facility review. To ensure reviews on the Website are useful and constructive, SpareFoot has a few guidelines to help you write an effective review.
Your review should be:
Honest— Your review should be honest and not misleading. SpareFoot only posts reviews submitted by customers who have had a firsthand experience with the facility being reviewed. We will not accept reviews from anyone that has a relationship with the facility, including the owner, management and employees of the facility or a competing facility. We will not accept reviews from reviewers that receive compensation or the promise of compensation (such as a discount off the facility's rental fees or a free product) in exchange for a review. Failure to disclose any compensation you received or will receive in connection with a review is a violation of these Review Terms and Conditions and may be a violations of applicable law.
Relevant— Reviews can be extremely helpful to fellow storage-seeking customers. Please stay on-topic in your review, and avoid discussing anything NOT related to the self-storage facility you are reviewing. Note that while we love hearing what you think of SpareFoot, your review should focus on the physical facility you rented from. To leave feedback about your experience with SpareFoot, please leave a review .
Appropriate—We know that not every customer experience is positive, so you're encouraged to share the good, the bad and the ugly. That being said, SpareFoot reserves the right to use our best judgement in publishing submitted reviews. To ensure your experience is ultimately shared with potential renters, please avoid the following in your review:
- content that is libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, abusive or threatening
- profanity or hate speech
- promotion of illegal or immoral activities
- promotional content
- personal details including phone numbers, addresses, and full names of facility employees
- personal attacks on facility employees, including name-calling, rude comments, and defamation of character
We ask that you provide your real name at the time of review submission, and refrain from misrepresenting yourself or others by submitting a review under a name other than your own. This includes the use of fictional characters and celebrity names. SpareFoot will not publish or display any name it believes to be a misrepresentation.
SpareFoot reserves the right to monitor and publish all submitted reviews. If any review is found to be in violation of these Review Terms and Conditions, SpareFoot reserves the right to deny publication of the violating content. SpareFoot will cooperate fully with any law enforcement officials or agencies in the investigation of any violation of these Review Terms and Conditions or of any applicable laws. SpareFoot reserves the right to remove any content from the site at any time, for any reason.
Amazon Gift Card Drawing
On the first business day of every month, we randomly select one storage customer who left a review on SpareFoot during the previous month. We email this customer at the address provided with their review, letting them know they have won our drawing for a $250 Amazon gift card. Our email states that the customer has 2 business days to reply and verify their preferred email address for electronic delivery of the gift card. If they reply in time, the customer will receive a $250 Amazon gift card, delivered electronically to their preferred email address within 1 business day. If the customer does not reply in time, we go back and randomly select a different storage customer, and this process repeats until we have a verified winner.
