The term commences on the day after Consumer, or a third party, who is not the executor, appointed by him beforehand, has received the Product, or:

7.3 Within the withdrawal term as referred to in paragraph 1, Consumer shall handle the Product and the packaging with care.

8.4 Does the Consumer use his right to withdraw the Agreement after first having explicitly requested the execution of the Service during the reflection period, Consumer is required to pay an amount to SimCPR.

These collection costs amount to a maximum of: 15% of amounts due up to € 2,500, 10% of the subsequent € 2,500 and 5% of the following € 5,000, with a minimum of € 40. SimCPR may deviate from aforementioned amounts and percentages to the benefit of Consumer.

In that case, SimCPR is entitled to suspend the Service.
