When a Customer Care Agent receives a complaint, they will take detailed notes and record those notes into the customers electronic account file.
They will work quickly to resolve the complaint after investigating the issues.
Customer Care Agents must keep a record of:
- The nature of the complaint they are working with;
- The product or the subject of the complaint;

Danoz acknowledges that its customers come from a diverse range of cultural and often non-English speaking backgrounds. It also recognizes that customers whose first language is not English may need additional assistance to communicate their complaint and have it effectively handled.
If a Customer Care Agent receives a complaint in a language other than English; or a telephone complaint from a person who has limited English language skills, the Customer Care Agent will endeavour to obtain the assistance of a professional with the appropriate language skills to assist with the handling of the complaint.

Danoz publicizes its complaints procedure to customers by publishing its Complaints Handling Policy on its website.
