Professional clients are not entitled to the right of withdrawal.
The decision of withdrawal by the customer can be made by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by registered letter to Avenue Brugmann, 30-1060 Brussels, or by any other means, either using the model withdrawal form provided for this purpose, or by an unambiguous statement clearly setting out the decision to withdraw.
