Consequently, each User releases the Company from any liability for the direct or indirect consequences resulting directly or indirectly from the introduction, conclusion and/or execution of such a contract between a Kokooner and a Customer.
In this respect, the Company shall not be held responsible for any cancellation of payment or revocation of direct debit authorisation at the sole initiative of the Client, and for the consequences that may result from this.
