Specification of the authorisation

We provide services according to the rules of legal representation. This is based on the cooperation of the parties. It comes from the nature of this legal relation that the office is obliged to handle your case professionally and carefully. In case of an application for registration the final decision is made by the authorities, and therefore the office has no responsibility in this regard. It is our policy that we do not accept cases where there is a conflict of interest in respect of our existing clients. In such cases (e.g. at an opposition against our clients) the office refuses the authorization request and refunds all effected payments. In case you feel that your matter is not treated appropriately, please turn directly to the manager of the head office. We thoroughly investigate any complaint. The operation of the office is ruled by the HU Law No. XXXII of 1995 on patent attorneys.

Annulment of an agreement

The provision of services is regulated by the rules of legal representation and mandate agreements. Generally Pintz & Partners LLC accepts mandates where one of the languages of the procedure is English and there is no conflict of interest in the representation. The mandate can be revoked any time, however any costs incurred up to that time shall be charged to and paid by you. Mandates given by using online forms are processed within a short period of time. There is no possibility for reimbursement of fees once the application is forwarded to the authorities since the mandate is completed and the authorities do not reimburse the official fees. It is not possible to amend the applications unless it is allowed by the applicable law. Our office reserves the right to refuse or to suspend any mandate requests or terminate an accepted mandate with 15 days notice. Overpayments shall be refunded, if any.

Payment via bank card

You can pay with VISA, VISA Electron, Mastercard (EC/MC), and JCB bank cards. The payment is effected on the secure site of the bank. When submitting an application on the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) interface you are connected directly to our Bank (K&H). K&H Bank Hungary is the affiliate of KBC Bank Belgium. Pintz & Partners does not receive or handle any information relating to your card, our office receives only a short message about the payment from the bank. The bank has a secure 128-bit encrypting key to protect the communication channel. VeriSign certified K&H bank to use this 128-bit key, based upon which it ensures the application of SSL-based encryption. This encryption method is applied in 90 % of today’s global e-commerce. The browser program used by you (Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator) encrypts the cardholder’s data before transmission. This means that the information given by you gets to the destination in an encoded form and no unauthorised party is able to interpret or to use it.

Payment via bank transfer

The fees do not include the remittance fee of your payment. All of the remittance must be paid by the order. In case we receive less payment than indicated in the business conditions, the amount shall be refunded automatically after deducting the bank charges. The application or the subject matter of the mandate is taken care of only after having received the total payment. With regards to the experience with previous applications we would like to ask our clients to please make sure that bank transfer costs are not charged to us.
