The default setting of the ranking of Suppliers on our Platform is "SonsOfSails.com Recommends" (or any similar wording); this is the Default Ranking. Note that the Default Ranking is created through a complex ever-changing and evolving system (algorithm) that considers a multitude of criteria in order to match searchers and accommodations in an optimal way. The actual ranking will be different for each customer and for each search as there are many criteria included.
Note that for convenience we also offer other ways to rank Charters. A Client can choose to rank, for example, boat on the basis of lowest price first, review scores, boat type (etc.). A customer thus has full control over the presentation of the search results.
Only customers who have booked at the Boat will be invited by SonsOfSails.com to comment on their stay at the relevant accommodations and to provide a score for certain aspects of their stay or may receive a rating request during their stay or may receive a rating request during their stay. The completed guest review (including submitted rating during your stay) may be (a) uploaded onto the relevant Charter's information page on our Platform for the sole purpose of informing (future) customers of your opinion of the service (level) and quality of the Charter, and (b) (wholly or partly) used and placed by SonsOfSails.com at its sole discretion (e.g. for marketing, promotion, or improvement of our service) on our Platform or such social media platforms, newsletters, special promotions, apps, or other channels owned, hosted, used, or controlled by SonsOfSails.com and our business partners.
In order to offer and maintain recent (and therefore relevant) reviews, reviews can only be submitted within a limited period of time (28 days) after a stay and each review will only be available for a limited period of time (24 months) after posting. The default ranking of the reviews is by date of submission relative to a few additional criteria (such as language, reviews with comments), whereas a review of a customer who [always] submits comprehensive and detailed reviews may be ranked on top. You have the option to choose various different forms of ranking and filter (e.g. by audience, date, language, score). SonsOfSails.com does allow the Charter to respond to a review. We reserve the right to adjust, refuse, or remove reviews at our sole discretion insofar as it violates our review policy.
SonsOfSails.com does not compensate or otherwise reward a customer for completing a review. The Client review form should be regarded as a survey and does not include any (further commercial) offers, invitations, or incentives whatsoever. SonsOfSails.com undertakes to use its best efforts to monitor and remove reviews that include obscenities or the mention of an individual’s name or reference to stolen goods.
