Clean Internet Complaint - Bad Customer Service
This past weekend, I decided to install an internet filter on my computer since I was encountering unwanted material on the internet through Google and other sources. I decided to go with Clean Internet's monthly plan for $4.95 a month. The problem, however, is that the moment I installed the filter, it began to block websites that were not a problem like YouTube and Facebook. There is no way to do an administrative override, either, because they do not provide this capability. You have to send in an unblock website request by email which takes some time according to the email form.
The website states that they provide a 90 day UNCONDITIONAL guarantee on the product and they will provide a full refund. I sent in an email requesting a refund and explained the reason for the request. Today, I got a response that was rather rude stating that I had not used the product for very long (they could see that I had little activity on my account) and that they had not billed me yet. They also asked if I required an uninstall code for my computer. I was not threatening or rigid on my email, but they were acting as though I was trying to get something for free.
I sent a follow-up email explaining that I did a system restore to remove the software from my computer because I didn't have time to talk to them over the phone to get information on how to uninstall. I also requested a second time that they not charge my credit card for the billing fee since I was no longer using the product.
I think companies who claim a 90 day UNCONDITIONAL guarantee should not ask questions for the reason behind the request from the customer to receive a refund if they are not happy. Unconditional means not imposing or not depending on or containing a condition. So their request for me to use the product longer than I desire to is unwarranted and ridiculous.
EDITED TO ADD:
I received a response from the customer service department arguing with me stating that I did not request the unblock on both YouTube and Facebook. I opened the emails I received from the unblock form both times and put in my password after clicking the enclosed links.
ETA (2nd time):
I received 2 other emails arguing that I had not opened the subsequent emails. I just sent a "stop email" request. The customer service representative seems intent on harassing me about this situation.
