We prefer amicable dispute resolution, therefore our disputes are settled by an independent ombudsman

Ombudsman Services

He deals with suggestions of our clients (including Komerční banka, a.s. with its registered office in the Slovak Republic) and clients of some other companies that are a part of the Komerční banka and Société Générale Group in the Czech Republic.

These are:

The ombudsman's activities are governed and defined by the Ombudsman's Charter. Clients can contact the ombudsman in case of dissatisfaction with the resolution of their complaint or complaint in the second instance (in the case of KB clients, the Customer Experience department). The ombudsman's decision is not legally binding on either party, however, within the conciliation procedure, the companies of the Komerční banka Group undertake to respect it.
