Online Dispute Resolution Platform
The European Commission has established an Online Dispute Resolution Platform (ODR Platform) http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr that is specifically designed to help EU consumers who have bought goods or services online from a trader based elsewhere in the EU and subsequently has a problem with that online purchase.
The ODR platform will refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service which will then pass it on to Arthur J. Gallagher.
