The User has a period of seven (7) days to exercise his right of withdrawal without needing to justify his/her reasons or being subject to paying a penalty. This period of seven (7) days runs from the date of confirmation of online payment. If this day happens to fall on a Saturday, Sunday, public holiday or other non-working day, the seven-day period is extended until the next business day. The User may exercise his/her right o withdrawal by registered letter, with notice of receipt, addressed to Customer Service.

If the User uses the Wengo Wallet and a credit/debit card to settle their Transactions, he/she can block their Wengo account, either directly on his Expert Account (section “My payment methods” > “My wallet”) or by request from the Customer Service.

The Wengo Wallet can also be credited by obtaining promotions granted by the Providers or by MyBestPro SAS. In this case, the funds may be subject to conditions of use specific to each offer and available on the Platform.

In the event of a dispute, Members have an obligation to attempt to settle such dispute in accordance with the provisions of article 1.1 of the process of the Settlement of Disputes Policy.

In case of failure of such settlement, and although MyBestPro SAS acts only as an intermediary, MyBestPro SAS will use its best efforts in order to resolve in an amicable way any dispute between Members once the payment in relation to the Transaction into the trustee account has occurred.

As a following step and in accordance with the Settlement of Disputes Policy, Members are requested to contact MyBestPro SAS via the web mail service available in the “Support” area of their Personal Account in order to report that a dispute has arisen.

In the case of payment involving fraudulent behaviour by Credit Card, it will be possible for the card holder to claim repayment of the disputed sum.

In the event of an incident resulting in the repayment by WENGO of the Transaction amount (i.e. disputed or aborted transactions as defined in article 5), the Provider remains liable for any required payment to MyBestPro SAS, as only the Provider assumes all risks related to Transactions, WENGO’s role being limited to that of online broker as defined in article I.3. of the Terms and Conditions.

The Transaction amount will be subject to fees incurred by MyBestPro SAS following the restitution of the disputed sum to the User’s banking institution. The fees will be charged on a specific invoice indicating the month that the dispute took place.

Upon request, MyBestPro SAS will send the Provider the documentary evidence relating to a repayment.

Furthermore, MyBestPro SAS has the right to deduct the disputed sum from future payments due to the Provider, pursuant to the rules of statutory compensation provided for under articles 1289 to 1299 of the French Civil Code.
