Additional Notes

Complaint: aloha solar panel cleaning subsidary of Direct Electric is using my photos and business name in ties with the BBB on their website. see attached. On September 17, 2013 I noticed that is using my business name and photos on their website. Aloha Solar Panel Cleaning is not a BBB member however it seems to be a subsidary of Direct Electric.

Desired Settlement: I am requesting that Solar Cleaning Hawaii's name, information, photos and any content from Solar Cleaning Hawaii be removed from any and all their advertisements/website immediately.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/09/27) */ Contact Name and Title: *** ****** Contact Phone: 808******* Contact Email: *** We are unable to find anywhere on the site where we are using images that belong to MR ******. We are more than happy to comply if he can illustrate where his images and name are being used. we apologize for any inconvenience or similarities as they were unintended if that's the case Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 7, 2013/09/30) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) I appreciate the response of *** ******, however for the owner not to know what "was" on his website is highly unlikely. On September 17, 2013 I spoke with ***** at ASPC and told her that their website contains a photo that was mine and my name "*********************" is written throughout their web content. ***** advised that she would have her marketing person take a look at their site and that she would bring these issues up to *** ******. Later that day, ASPC website under went construction and currently the new website reflects *********************'s information have not completely been removed. ASPC site "Service" page still reads "********************* Services" right above the photo which reads "Maximize your solar potential". If you are unable to find this on your site a copy of this can be forwarded to requestor upon request. I have time/date stamped copies of ASPC's website on September 17th, which reflect my photo, and ********************* in its content. It would be too much of a coincidence that my photo and information would be removed right after I spoke with ASPC. For *** ****** to state that he is "unable to find anywhere on the site where we are using images that belong to MR ******", he is referring to the website after which they made the changes. Which shows that they did know about the false information. Should the BBB or *** ****** require my dated and timed snap shots I would be glad to forward them to any interested party. This case has not yet been satisfied for reason mentioned above. *** ****** may want to speak with his marketing, web designer or person responsible for web contents on his website, since it is plagiarism and false advertisement to use other's information. Please note that ********************* is a registered trade name with the State of Hawaii since January 7, 2011. Moving forward please do not use any of *********************'s photos or content on ASPC website and/or marketing material or legal action will be taken here in the State of Hawaii. ********************* is not affiliated with ASPC in any way. We live on an island and word here travels quickly.
