PBCOM Customer Protection and Experience Division
The PBCOM Customer Protection and Experience Division is continuously working on reviewing and improving our programs for financial education, fair treatment of all stakeholders, client complaint handling, and risk management.
SECURITY AND FRAUD PREVENTION
We have implemented control systems to ensure secure and consistent banking transactions, whether through the branches or through digital channels. This is to safeguard our clients from security threats such as financial and personal identity theft. The risk of compromised cards and data thru illegal skimming devices is controlled by regularly checking PBCOM ATMs.
PRIVACY OF INFORMATION
PBCOM enhanced the verification process across varied channels to protect our clients from theft of personal information. Processing of transactions adds a more secured verification and several layers of positive identification before assisting clients with their concerns.
RIGHT TO TRANSPARENCY
With the continuous innovation of our products and services, PBCOM makes them accessible, understandable, clear and accurate by ensuring that all necessary and relevant information are available to our clients. Nevertheless, our clients have the right to be adequately educated regarding features, terms, systems and procedures, and inherent risks of bank products and services, including his responsibilities, and the right to be protected against fraudulent, dishonest or misleading advertising, labeling, or promotion, and to seek redress for misrepresentation, breach of contractual obligations, shoddy goods or unsatisfactory services.
Our branch personnel and Contact Center are trained to talk about financial matters, our products and services, and its risks so our clients can make informed decisions. They are also equipped with the knowledge and IT-supported technical capabilities to advice our customers on fraud prevention and other security measures, as well as procedures of reporting such cases and card-related concerns.
