At Ultimo, we attach great importance to our standards of operation and quality of service for all Business Partners and debtors.
We are a member of the Association of Financial Companies in Poland (ZPF) - an institution associating companies in the debt management sector, setting the ethical standards and principles applicable to the debt collection market. Ultimo is a co-author of the Principles of Good Practice and has been awarded the Ethical Audit Certificate for the past 15 years, confirming the conduct of its business in accordance with ethical principles. An additional indicator of the activities of our Group are its Company values and internal Code of Ethics.
The formulation of the Good Practice Principles is used to define recovery methods that prioritise ethical behaviour in accordance with moral principles. A debt collection Company, in accordance with these principles, is obliged to protect the client's interest, care for the client's good name, act in accordance with the law and respect the debtor's consumer rights.
In addition, the document details a catalogue of inadmissible activities. Defining them effectively, facilitates elimination from the market of entities whose activities are in conflict with the Code. This process will help customers of debt collection companies to choose the right partner in the field of debt collection, that is, a partner operating in accordance with the law.
Out of concern for the good of the clients of debt collection companies, it is possible to submit an application to the ZPF Ethics Committee, to examine compliance of business practice with the Good Practice Principles.Learn more
