Thimbl. Complaints Policy

We aim to provide a very high standard of service to every customer. If you are unhappy, for any reason, with the service we provide to you and wish to make a formal complaint relating to anything concerning the credit broking aspect of our service (for example, the way in which we have marketed the thimbl. Credit Card or Loan), we would welcome your feedback and the opportunity to put things right. It is important to us that all complaints are resolved as quickly as possible and to the satisfaction of our customers.

Alternatively, if you have a complaint regarding a thimbl. product (ie anything relating to the servicing aspect of the product from the point you are re-directed to Vanquis Bank’s website onwards) you should contact Vanquis Bank. You can find contact details and information about how to complain about Vanquis Bank here: Contact Us - thimbl..

This guide explains how we will deal with any complaints we receive. It also tells you what you can do if your complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction.

If you have a complaint

If you have a complaint about any aspect of our credit broking service, then we would like to hear from you. You can contact us in writing at:

The Compliance Manager
Digitonomy Limited,
Steam Mill Business Centre,
Steam Mill Street,

Alternatively, you can get in touch using our online contact form.

It will help us to deal with your complaint quicker if you can provide the following information:

  1. Your full name, date of birth, and address along with a daytime contact telephone number.
  2. The email address and mobile number used on your application.
  3. The full details of your complaint.
  4. What you would like us to do to put things right; and
  5. Photocopies of any relevant paperwork, if applicable.

We will try to resolve your complaint within three business days of receipt. If this is achieved, we will write to you, by email or letter as appropriate, to confirm that your complaint has been resolved and to explain any next steps you might wish to take. If we are unable to resolve your complaint within this timeframe, we will acknowledge your complaint in writing within five working days and provide details of the person who will be dealing with your complaint.

We may ask you for further information to allow us to better understand your concerns. Once we have completed our investigation, we will tell you our findings and, if appropriate, how we will put things right.

If we are unable to send a final response to your complaint within four weeks, we will write to you explaining why we have not yet resolved the complaint and when we will contact you next. If your complaint is particularly complicated, we will keep you informed of the progress of our investigations.

If we are unable to provide a final response within eight weeks, we will confirm this in writing and provide a timeframe within which you can expect a final response. If, at this time, you are dissatisfied with the delay, you may refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

If you are not satisfied with our final response, you have the right to complain to the Financial Ombudsman Service; their contact details are below. You must do this within six months of our final response. When we send you our final response, we will also provide you with a link to the Financial Ombudsman Service's explanatory leaflet.
