We want all of our users to have a fantastic experience when using PitchedIt, so when we hear that we have not provided a service to that standard, we want to do all that we can to make things right.

We hope that most matters can be resolved either through our crisp chat support, or through an email or video-chat conversations with one of the members of our team.

However, we appreciate that some matters sometimes require further escalation. That is what this section is for.

Should you find that you need to make a complaint, we can assure you that it will be addressed swiftly, fairly and efficiently, so that we can find a resolution as quickly as possible.

If you have a complaint, we ask that you do the following:

Write an email addressed to support@pitchedit.co Enter the subject line: “I have a complaint” and add your name and your company name (if applicable). In the body of the email, please describe as much as possible the nature of the complaint, including when the issue happened and who you had been dealing with in our team, if anyone.

After you send your complaint email, you will receive an acknowledgement email from us within 7 business days.

A senior member of our organisation will review the complaint and will respond within a few days (no later than 7 business days from your acknowledgement email). This initial response may offer a resolution or may begin a dialogue in an attempt to reach the best possible outcome.
