contacting sweetaquatics?


Hi,

This is not a vendor review so please don't freak....I just wanted to know if anyone knew of a phone number to sweetaquatics.com? Their website does not have one listed.

thanks!

Hi liveforthis,

When I use the Reverse White Pages for the address on the website this is the information that comes up:

I'm removing the personal contact information. This is something I wouldn't appreciate having listed on the internet and can't imagine any woman wanting her home address and phone number listed on a public forum. Sorry guys, privacy issue.

This isn't up for debate. Posting a woman's (or man) name and home address isn't something we are comfortable with. If they wanted you to have this information, it would have been avaliable on the website. It is a family run business and from what I've gathered, it may very well be run from their home. Further, you said this wasn't a review, but then posted your issues. This is what we ask of our members to refrain from.

Hi sewingalot,

I apologize for unknowingly posting information that was not allowed; is there somewhere in the guidelines and rules where that is specified and I missed it? If it is not in the rules and guidelines, perhaps it could be added.

I'm sorry I wasn't trying to debate. I just wanted a business number. I definitely did not ask for any personal information. If people are in the business of accepting money then they should have some sort of way to communicate. I'm also sorry if it sounded like a review, I did not give any opinions good or bad and did not explain any of my issues other than I could not get a response from them and was concerned. I was hopeful a community like this could help. Again, sorry I even posted anything about this I wasn't trying to cause trouble...

No big deal, really. Since it is not public information on the company's website, I removed it to protect the woman's privacy. Try to think of it this way - if you were posting plants for sale in the swap and shop, and couldn't be reached, would you want your information displayed on the boards you purposely hid for unknown reasons? Sure, you are selling, but the buyer should also be aware of things like this in the beginning. It goes back to the whole caveat emptor.

Here is the guideline:

Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online --- for example, via message boards or chat --- that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While The Planted Tank.net strives to protect your personal information and privacy, The Planted Tank cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online; you make such disclosures at your own risk. However, if you violate the rules, The Planted Tank.net Forums reserves the right to disclose any and all user activity to the public, third parties and or law enforcement agencies.

it is run from their house, so it indeed would be their home address/phone #.

Hi sewingalot,

I understand, again sorry for my error.

My experience has been that most reputable businesses do have a phone number on there websites (although not always Toll-Free) and are usually registered with their local Better Business Bureau. If a "company" does not have that information I usually "pass" and take my money elsewhere.

If they can't communicate via email and have no business number they need to have some form of communication...
