TPP (Third Party Payment Service Providers)
TPPs (third parties) are duly licensed payment service providers. Licences are issued by Národná banka Slovenska or another national authority within the EU. A further condition is that the TPP must possess a qualified certificate. Finally, the TPP must satisfy the requirements laid down in the PSD2 directive and guarantee the same data protection and security as the bank.
A TPP can gain access to the account of a client of the bank only based on consent granted by the client or the owner of the payment account.
