A complaint is considered as any statement of dissatisfaction issued by a customer vis-à-vis a professional operator. A request for information, opinion, clarification, service or provision of a service does not constitute a complaint.
Complaints may be sent by post, telephone or e-mail, or may be forwarded via the customer’s usual point of contact.
The address for complaints sent by post is:
Flexstone Partners Paris : 5/7, Rue Monttessuy, 75 007 Paris.
Flexstone Partners Geneva : Chemin du Pavillon 5. CH – 1218 Le Grand Saconnex
Complaints made via telephone or e-mail should be done via the client’s usual point of contact
Flexstone Partners undertakes to:
- Acknowledge receipt of all complaints received within a maximum of 10 days, unless a reply can be provided within this period
- Respond to any complaints within a maximum period of two months following their receipt
- When it is impossible to comply with this deadline, customers must be kept informed of the complaint’s progress and any special circumstances that make it impossible to respect the aforementioned deadlines.
As a last resort and if not satisfactory solution has been found you may refer your request, free of charge, to the Ombudsman according to jurisdiction where complaints shall be addressed. The Ombudsman must be referred to within a year of the complaint submitted to Flexstone Partners and only after all the internal remedies mentioned above have been used.
