Before being bound by a credit agreement, we are obliged to provide you with a standardised information document called the Standard European Consumer Credit Information (‘SECCI’) form. It is designed to give you the best overview of the key information and terms and conditions of any credit agreement you consider, allowing you to compare the offers of different credit providers and select the credit offer that works best for you. The SECCI contains important details such as: the type of credit, amount and costs of credit, the Annual Percentage Rate (APR), the number and frequency of payments, as well as a note on important legal aspects.
The Standard European Consumer Credit Information form for the KBC Credit Card can be found above under the Forms section.
