Claim for a payment service:
We will acknowledge receipt of the customer's complaint within 5 business days of the date of receipt of the claim.
We will investigate any claim and send a response within 15 business days of receipt.

Claim for an investment service or financial instrument:
For the processing of the claim, we undertake to respect a deadline of ten working days maximum from the receipt of the claim, to acknowledge receipt, unless the answer itself is provided to the customer within this time.
We undertake to respect a deadline up to two months between the date of receipt of the complaint and the date of dispatch of the response to the client, except in the event of duly justified special circumstances.
