In application of Article L. 222-7 et seq. of the French Consumer Code (Code de la consommation), and provided You were directly approached by Perspecteev within the framework of Article L. 341-1 et seq. of the French Monetary and Financial Code, You will have 14 full calendar days from the date on which You enter into the GTCU or subscribe to the Premium Services in which to exercise your right of withdrawal (it is stipulated that any unsolicited contact, by any means whatsoever, with a person in order to obtain their consent concerning the provision of payment services constitutes direct marketing of banking or financial services).
You may exercise your right of withdrawal by completing the online form available in your User Account or by giving notice by any means of your choice. In that case, the notice must be clearly worded and unambiguously express your wish to withdraw.
In the event You exercise your right of withdrawal within the above-mentioned time period, the GTCU and/or your subscription to the Premium Services will be terminated as of right. Your User Account and all your information will then be definitively deleted from Perspecteev’s information systems.
You hereby expressly accept that Perspecteev will begin to provide the Premium Services before the end of the period within which You may exercise your right of withdrawal.

6. Account Checking Feature
The Account Checking Feature includes two services: Account Information relating to the Payment Accounts and Aggregation of data relating to Other Assets (which are not classified as payment accounts).
In practice, the Account Checking Feature gives You a clear and detailed overview, in your User Account, of your banking and financial situation. To that end, Perspecteev accesses the websites and systems of your designated Service Providers, recovers raw data relating to the Accounts and Other Assets You have registered, reorganizes it in a structured manner and displays it in your User Account.
In view of the nature of the Account Checking Feature, You acknowledge that its sole purpose is to provide You with an overall view of your financial situation, meaning that any decisions of any kind whatsoever that You may make will be made autonomously and independently of the Services provided by Perspecteev hereunder.
7. Transfer Feature
7.1. Description of the Transfer Feature
You can submit transfer requests from your User Account. To that end, Perspecteev provides You with a Payment Initiation Service and a Withdrawals from Other Assets Service, within the limitations determined by the Service Provider.
It is stipulated that the list of Service Providers for which the Transfer Feature is available can be viewed in the Application or Website menu, and that Perspecteev may decide, as of right and with no entitlement to compensation, (i) to remove a Service Provider from the list of Service Providers eligible for the Transfer Feature, and (ii) to therefore no longer offer the Transfer Feature for said Service Provider.
The Account or Other Asset concerned by the initiation or withdrawal request must first have been synchronized within the User Account. The Transfer Feature is only available for transfers to accounts that have been registered with the selected Service Provider. This means that You cannot add new beneficiary accounts from your User Account.
7.2. Activation of the Transfer Feature
The Transfer Feature will be activated when You submit your first transfer request.
If You have not already created a Security Code or selected another authentication method (as described in Article 4.2 above), You must create a Security Code or select another method, which You must subsequently use to log in to your User Account and whenever You request a transfer.
In compliance with its statutory anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing obligations, when the Transfer Feature is activated Perspecteev may need to ask You for one or more of the following supporting documents:
- a currently valid official identity document displaying your photo;
- proof of address issued within the last three months;
- any other documentary proof of your identity (driving license, social security card, resident’s permit, birth certificate issued within the last three months); and/or
- any other official identity document that constitutes additional proof of your identity, confirming the first document.
When Perspecteev has asked You to supply said documents, You will not be able to submit transfer requests until You have supplied the documents. Perspecteev reserves the right to request any other document or additional information so that it can carry out all appropriate checks in compliance with its statutory obligations, including in particular its anti-money laundering obligations.
In compliance with the applicable legislation, You are informed that Perspecteev will keep said information and documents for a period of up to five (5) years after the end of the contractual relationship.
If You fail to supply the requested documents to Perspecteev, it may terminate the Contract with immediate effect, in accordance with Article 12.
7.3. Transfer requests

- if this is the first time that You are submitting a transfer request for the selected Service Provider, You must supply the Authentication Data (password only) for said Service Provider (for all subsequent payment initiation requests, You will proceed directly to the next step);
- enter your Security Code (or use any other method You have selected). Entry of your Security Code (or use of the other method) evidences your irrevocable confirmation of the transfer request;
- if the Service Provider’s authentication protocol requires other personal security data, You must complete the procedure indicated by Perspecteev (for example, by inputting in your User Account a “one-time password” received by text message from the Service Provider).
Perspecteev will inform You in your User Account, by any means, that it or the Service Provider has received the payment initiation request.
Perspecteev will then provide You with the following information: the transaction reference and its main characteristics (account debited, beneficiary, transaction amount).
If need be, Perspecteev will notify You in your User Account by any means that the transfer request is refused, stating the reason for its refusal unless its refusal is required by law. When a transfer request is refused due to a material error, Perspecteev will tell You what You need to do to rectify the error, whenever possible.
You will find details of all your previous transfers in your User Account, with the following information for each transfer:
- transaction reference number;
- debited Account or Other Asset;
- transaction amount;
- name, if available.
You are also invited to check your payment transactions executed by the Service Provider, to ensure that it has correctly processed the transfer.
When You use the Transfer Feature, Perspecteev warrants that:
- the funds will not be held by Perspecteev at any time;
- your data will remain fully secure and will only be transferred for the purposes of the transfer request;
- You will only be asked to supply the information strictly necessary to process the transfer request;
- data will not be used, viewed or stored for any purpose other than the transaction You have requested.
7.4. Transfer requests are irrevocable
You are informed that You cannot cancel a transfer order after You have confirmed the transfer to be initiated by Perspecteev.
You are deemed to have confirmed a payment initiation request when:
- You validate all the characteristics of the transfer request (amount of the transaction, Payment Account to be debited and transfer beneficiary);
- You enter your Security Code (or use another method You have selected).
7.5. Contesting transfers
You are informed that if You wish to contest an unauthorized payment transaction initiated by Perspecteev, You must contact your Service Provider promptly as soon as You are aware of the problem, and no later than thirteen (13) months after the payment transaction has been credited to the account.
The Coach consists of a news feed that will provide You with a range of information on your money by monitoring your Payment Accounts and Other Assets, as well as advice and statistics so that You can better manage your money. The Coach can also put You in contact with potential partners.

11. Security of the Services
Perspecteev is authorized and regulated by the ACPR (the French banking and insurance regulator), which is part of the Banque de France, and is one of the select companies that has been granted the authorization required to operate as a Payment Institution.
The security of User data is an absolute priority for Perspecteev, which accordingly ensures a very high level of security for the Bankin’ Services. To that effect, Perspecteev uses algorithms that comply with the highest proven standards of data security. The Bankin’ Services are also regularly audited by independent specialist IT security firms regularly used by leading banks and financial institutions.
The Bankin' Services' security standards are among the highest on the market, enabling Perspecteev to provide the Bankin' technology to leading international financial and IT service providers, which audit the security of the Services.
You can find out more about Perspecteev's security policy here.
Perspecteev accordingly undertakes to do everything it can to ensure the security of User Accounts and Users’ data. However, considering the complex nature of the Internet and Information Systems, Perspecteev is not bound by any obligation to achieve a specific result in this regard.
User accounts constitute an automated data processing system. Unauthorized access and any alterations to said system are prohibited and subject to criminal prosecution.
Perspecteev will be responsible for the safekeeping and integrity of all data, including sensitive payment data. However, if You export said data and store it on any medium unassociated with Perspecteev, You acknowledge that data circulating on information systems is not necessarily protected, particularly against potential misuse.
You accordingly represent that You are familiar with the nature and technical characteristics of information systems, and You accept their technical constraints and the response times necessary to consult, retrieve or transfer data relating to the Services and the associated risks.
You are therefore solely responsible for the use and implementation of measures to secure, protect and safeguard your hardware, software and data. In this regard, You agree to take all appropriate measures to protect your own data.
You also agree not to do anything that could compromise the security of Perspecteev's systems. As a general matter, You are strongly advised (i) to ensure that any password You choose contains numbers, lowercase and capital letters and punctuation signs, in order to make the password sufficiently complex, and to renew it every three months, and (ii) to update the software You use to directly or indirectly use the Services in a secure manner.
You are strongly advised not to use the Services on a mobile phone or computer that You do not own or which is subject to shared use with others. You agree to notify Perspecteev promptly (at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org) of any problem You notice with your User Account or of any concerns You may have regarding possible unauthorized access to your User Account.
You must immediately inform Perspecteev (at the following address: email@example.com) if data disclosed to Perspecteev is lost, stolen or misused, or, more generally, if the data's confidentiality has been compromised in any way. You must immediately inform Perspecteev (at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org) if your mobile phone is lost, stolen or misused.
Identity theft and phishing practices are key concerns for Perspecteev. One of Perspecteev's priorities is to protect information in order to help You guard against identity theft.
Perspecteev will never, under any circumstances, ask You for Authentication or Identification Data by phone, email, text message or any other means, other than via the Application platform or Website.
