At Any Car Online, we are committed to providing the best possible customer service and treating you in the fairest possible manner. We are committed to apply the highest possible standards, both in our dealings with you and our internal systems to help ensure we always treat our customers as fairly as possible.
Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) is one of the key principles set by the Financial Conduct Authority to ensure fair treatment of customers, by improving standards across the financial industry. This includes our dealings with you and to apply and have these high standards and principles embedded in all areas of our business.
The Financial Conduct Authority's requires us to apply six guiding principles when engaging with our customers. These are known as the 'Treating Customers Fairly' principles and govern how we communicate with customers, the level of service we provide and the fairness of our products and procedures.
The six principles for treating customers fairly
Outcome 1: Consumers can be confident that they are dealing with firms where the fair treatment of customers is central to the corporate culture.
Outcome 2: Products and services marketed and sold in the retail market are designed to meet the needs of identified consumer groups and are targeted accordingly.
Outcome 3: Consumers are provided with clear information and are kept appropriately informed before, during and after the point of sale.
Outcome 4: Where consumers receive advice, the advice is suitable and takes account of their circumstances.
Outcome 5: Consumers are provided with products that perform as firms have led them to expect, and the associated service is of an acceptable standard and as they have been led to expect.
Outcome 6: Consumers do not face unreasonable post-sale barriers imposed by firms to change product, switch provider, submit a claim or make a complaint.
Ways we meet these requirements in the day to day running of our business
As we are committed to treating all customers fairly and in accordance with this, we have a policy on how we treat vulnerable customers. Our staff are trained to ensure we act with appropriate levels of care for any customers who are identified as being vulnerable.
