Information about the right of withdrawal shall be provided prior to each purchase. The information shall include information on the terms, time limit and procedures for exercise of this right. In addition, information must be provided about the standard cancellation form, which can be found at www.4t.dk.
If the End User chooses to exercise their right of withdrawal, in principle the End User is not required to pay for the goods or service provided.
In principle, the End User has a 14-day right of withdrawal.
Where the End User withdraws from a service provision agreement, the End User can be required to pay for that part of the service which has already been provided, if, prior to commencement, the End User has expressly requested and acknowledged this, and provided that the End User has been informed of the right of withdrawal and the amount which is to be paid.
No information about the right of withdrawal
If no information or inadequate information is provided, the End User’s right of withdrawal is extended by up to 12 months.
3.2 After purchase
A receipt must be sent to the End User, containing information about:
- the main features of the goods or service,
- the total price and charge per billing period,
- the terms:
- time limit and procedures for exercising the right of withdrawal,
- the standard model withdrawal form
- if relevant: information about any minimum contract period.
If, on purchasing Subscription-Type Services, the End User has expressly requested that provision of the service be commenced, the End User shall receive information of said consent and that right of withdrawal will run for 1) 14 days after entering into the agreement or 2) until the service has been delivered in full.

3.4 What the right of withdrawal means in practice
3.4.1 How does the End User withdraw?
Before the end of the cooling-off period, the End User must notify the Content Provider in clear and unambiguous fashion that the End User is withdrawing from the agreement. If the End User wants to provide notification in writing – for example by letter or e-mail – the End User simply sends the notification before the end of the period. The End User may opt to use the standard model withdrawal form, but this is not a requirement. Notification that the End User is withdrawing from the agreement must be sent to the relevant Content Provider.
Template for activating the right of withdrawal can be found at www.4t.dk
The fact that the Content Provider may have delivered the content service in parts shall not limit the right of withdrawal of the End User. In such a case the Content Provider may demand payment for that part of the service which has been delivered provided the End User has been informed of the right of withdrawal and delivery was commenced at the express request of the End User.
3.4.2 Calculating the cooling-off period
The cooling-off period is calculated from the date on which the goods was delivered or, in the case of a content service, from the date the agreement was entered into. In both cases, the period will only run from the time the End User has received information on Durable Media about their right of withdrawal. For example, if the End User orders a goods or service on Monday 1st and receives the above information at the same time, the cooling-off period runs until Monday 15th. If the End User does not receive the information until later, for example Wednesday 3rd, the cooling-off period runs until Wednesday 17th. If the period expires on a public holiday, a Saturday, Danish Constitution Day (5 June), 24 December or 31 December, the End User may wait until the following working day.
3.4.3. How to be inform about the Right of Withdrawal
Waiving right of withdrawal:
Should the customer waive the right of withdrawal, this can only be done as an active choice. That is, the customer must, by ticking an information field, accept that there is no right of withdrawal. The customer’s choice must subsequently be announced on a durable medium.
If the customer has a right of withdrawal:
The customer must be informed of the right of withdrawal prior to the purchase and on the subsequent receipt on durable medium.
In marketing and on receipt, please refer to www.4T.dk to read more about how to make use of the right of withdrawal.
The following sentence must be included in marketing materials and on receipt: Read more about the Right of Withdrawal on 4T.dk. The Danish text version which should be used, can be found in chapter 15.
4. Supervision and sanctions
The Parties to this Framework Agreement undertake the following:
1) To have an agreement with a separate unit, which is independent of 4T and the Mobile Operators’ financial interests and day-to-day running (impartial unit), to perform ongoing random samplings to ensure that the Premium Rate services comply with the relevant legislation and the Framework Agreement, in such a way that the checks meet the requirements below.
2) To require that those parties, including Content Providers, with which 4T enter into agreements relating to the usage rights for Application Code used in the advertising or offering of Premium Rate services, adhere to the Framework Agreement and the legislation in general.
3) To ensure that those parties with which 4T enter into agreements relating to the usage rights for Application Code require that, in the event of transfer of such usage rights for Application Code, the counter party to such a transfer agreement adheres to the Framework Agreement and the legislation in general.
4) To review that Premium Rate goods or services adhere to the Framework Agreement and the legislation in general, on its own initiative where there is a particular reason for doing so or following an approach by End Users or others.
4.1 Purpose of supervision
The purpose of appointing an impartial unit is to carry out a specified number of random samplings of all goods and services offered via applications codes on the Danish market, and to investigate whether the random samplings adhere to the applicable legislation and the Framework Agreement in force from time to time.
The impartial unit shall investigate a representative percentage of the goods and services offered calculated using the number of errors in the most recent six-month period, on the basis of 60 random samplings per quarter.
The random samplings shall be divided so that 1/3 of them are new goods and services and 2/3 existing goods and services. New goods and services are defined as services that have not been investigated before.
The random samplings shall cover the entire offering of Premium Rate services, such that all the various forms of Premium Rate services are checked and the various forms of advertising media and Content Providers are checked.
In other words, the random samplings shall include all types of Premium Rate services, including the Mobile Operators’ own services, and they shall cover Premium Rate services advertised in all forms of media including Internet, TV and printed media, concentrating particularly on high-visibility Premium Rate services. In addition, Premium Rate services shall be checked if there is a particular reason to doubt the actual content of the service.
Certain random samplings are carried out outside normal office hours, including random samplings of competitions, etc. linked to TV broadcasts.
The impartial unit shall carry out retests of Premium Rate services in the light of any identified breaches of the Framework Agreement and the applicable legislation. As a rule, retests shall take place about one week after the breach is notified to 4T.
As a rule, the impartial unit shall retest all Premium Rate services found to be non-compliant as well as Premium Rate services of the same type provided by the same Content Provider on the same platform and advertised in the same medium.
4.2 Documentation and reporting
The impartial unit shall ensure that the random samplings and documentation are uniform and consistent, and, for each random sampling, shall provide a substantiated assessment of the degree of compliance of the service with the relevant legislation and the Framework Agreement.
The impartial unit may obtain all relevant charging data and similar significant information at short notice from the agreed points of contact of all the Mobile Operators. The Mobile Operators shall provide such information without undue delay.
If the impartial unit identifies any breaches of the legislation or material provisions of the Framework Agreement, it shall immediately notify 4T. Such notification shall contain a unique identification of the service and the random sampling, relevant documentation (eg. advertising material and charging data) and a substantiated assessment of the service’s breach of the legislation and the Framework Agreement. The notification shall be sent by e-mail.
The impartial unit shall report to the 4T in writing every ½-year. The ½-yearly report shall contain an overview of all random samplings carried out, details of compliance with the legislation and the Framework Agreement, and, if applicable, those areas in which the regulations have been breached.
4.3 The Mobile Operators’ obligations relating to the Danish Consumer Ombudsman (Forbrugerombudsmanden) and reporting
On the basis of the impartial unit’s ½-yearly report, the Mobile Operators shall prepare their own report, adding details of the investigations into Premium Rate services that they have carried out themselves. The report shall also contain the steps taken by 4T where breaches were identified. The report shall be sent to the Danish Consumer Ombudsman (Forbrugerombudsmanden).
4.4 Major breaches of the Framework Agreement
The following three types of breach shall always be regarded as major breaches:
1) Services with Adult Content
2) Breach of maximum amounts as follows:
a) Breach of any maximum amounts in the Framework Agreement
b) Inadequate price information
c) Premium Rate for received chat messages
d) Premium Rate for service notices
3) Inadequate termination procedure for Subscription-Type Services and Continuous Subscription services which are subject to a separate Premium Rate
4) Inadequate correction or blocking of an identified breach within the period specified, regardless of whether the breach is major or minor.
4.5 Sanctions for major breaches
The Mobile Operators in the Framework Agreement undertake to apply the following sanctions if the Framework Agreement is breached. The day to day work on handling sanctions etc. is carried out by 4T
If a Content Provider has committed a major breach, 4T shall immediately suspend the Content Providers access to Premium Rating of services.
If an Aggregator has transferred the right of use of the Application Code to a Content Provider, which committed the breach, the Aggregator is required to suspend access to the Premium Rate services of the Content Provider in question. 4T must be informed in writing hereof. If the Aggregator fails in this obligation, 4T may suspend access to the Aggregator’s codes.
Access to the service is restored when 4T has been shown evidence that the relevant breach has ended.
If the same Content Provider commits a breach of the same kind, i.e. the same type of breach, within 12 months, 4T shall immediately suspend access to the Content Provider’s service. If the Aggregator has transferred the right of use to a Content Provider, which committed the breach, the Aggregator shall suspend access for such Content Provider. 4T must be informed in writing hereof. If the Aggregator fails in this obligation, 4T may suspend access to the Aggregator’s codes.
Following such repeated breaches, access to the service shall not be restored until at least 30 days have passed since the date access was suspended.
Agreements shall be made between 4T and the Aggregator/Content Provider, on one hand, and between the Aggregator and the Content Provider, on the other, in order to ensure that services that are advertised in breach of the Framework Agreement are suspended. Sanctions shall be applied to those who advertise the service and declare names and addresses in accordance with the Danish Consumer Contracts Act (forbrugeraftaleloven).
If two business units within the same group of companies each separately advertise a service in the unit’s own name and each separately commit two serious breaches, and the type of breach is the same in both units, 4T shall require the counter party to the agreement to suspend the entire service offering from the group of companies for 30 days.
Details of the scope and the period of the suspension may be published on www.rammeaftalen.dk.
4.6 Minor breaches
Minor breaches are clear and simple breaches of applicable rules.
The following types of breach shall in principle be regarded as minor breaches:
1) Inadequate information – for example relating to the name, address and telephone number of the Content Provider
2) Inadequate information on a Durable Medium
3) Inadequate information about the right of withdrawal
Inadequate correction of a minor breach shall be regarded as a major breach.
4.7.1 Penalties based on service

- DKK 3,000 for minor breaches and
- DKK 6,000 for major breaches
All amounts are exclusive of VAT.
5. Customer service
The End User shall receive high-quality, relevant customer service for each enquiry and shall not be transferred from one party to another unless there is a particular reason for doing so. Transfer from Mobile Operator to Content Provider may only take place at the time of initial enquiry about the advertising and content of the service. Where the enquiry is made from a Mobile Operator to an Aggregator, and the latter does not carry out customer service on behalf of the Content Provider, the Aggregator must transfer the enquiry to the Content Provider.
The End User’s Mobile Operator is required to handle customer enquiries. Enquiries relating to registration and billing for Premium Rate services (billing and account issues on which the Mobile Operator may be assumed to have an influence) shall be handled by the Mobile Operator.
Enquiries relating to advertising, the agreement, the delivery and the actual content of the service may be referred by the Mobile Operator directly to the Content Provider, the End User having been informed that they may contact the Mobile Operator again in the event that the Content Provider does not provide a satisfactory response to the enquiry.
4T is 2nd line support for Mobile Operators on complaints from End Users. Based on information from the End User and the Mobile Operator, 4T conducts a dialogue with the aggregator / service provider to uncover whether the sale of services has been made in accordance with the Framework Agreement. 4T may require an aggregator / Service Provider to credit the End User if 4T can document that either the purchased service, the purchase process or the relevant documentation has no been delivered does not comply with the Framework Agreement guidelines.
In its agreement with the Content Provider, 4T shall require the Content Provider to handle End User enquiries within a timely manner.
The Content Provider shall offer customer service as follows:
- By e-mail
- By telephone – on a Danish number (landline or mobile)
- In Danish/Scandinavian language
- Open and staffed at least four hours a day on weekdays.
The Content Provider shall make the necessary data and resources available to 4T.
The Mobile Operator is required to suspend collection of a disputed amount in the period from receipt by the Mobile Operator of a written complaint until the Mobile Operator has notified the End User of its decision in writing. This shall apply regardless of whether the complaint relates to deliverables provided by the Mobile Operator or the Content Provider.
6. Application Codes
The Parties to the Framework Agreement have designated the following four-digit Applications Codes for use in charging, where payment is made directly or indirectly via the mobile telephone bill/account.
Subject to the proviso that codes in the 18xx series may only be used for services having a public character (public information, information services, etc.). The gaining of permission to use an Application Code from the 18xx series is conditional on the Danish Business Authority (Erhvervsstyrelsen) having given its permission for the same 18xx number to be used for voice calls.
The Application Codes are administered by 4T.
7. Responsibility for the content and advertising of services
When advertising and selling Premium Rate goods and services, the Content Provider is responsible for adhering to the applicable legislation, including the Danish Marketing Practices Act (Markedsføringsloven) and the Danish Consumer Contracts Act (Forbrugeraftaleloven), in particular the obligations arising out of the provisions on distance selling in the Danish Consumer Contracts Act (Forbrugeraftaleloven). Reference is also made to the Danish Consumer Ombudsman’s currently applicable Guidelines on Children, Young People and Marketing Practices (Forbrugerombudsmandens vejledning om Børn, Unge og Markedsføring).
4T is required to ensure that Content Providers with which 4T enters into agreements are aware of the requirements arising out of the Framework Agreement in force from time to time.
It should be noted in particular that when advertising services or engaging in any other form of communication relating to Premium Rate services, the Content Provider shall clearly quote the price for using the service (Premium Rate), and shall specify that the End User is also required to pay the Mobile Operator’s End User price for data traffic relating to use of the service.
The attention of the Parties is drawn to Premium Rate services directed at children and young people (under 18). The combined amount for purchasing a Premium Rate Service of this type must not exceed an amount which children and young people might be expected to have at their disposal.
7.1 Intellectual property rights
The Content Provider is required to ensure that the necessary basis for calculating copyright-related fees exists, including KODA fees, and is responsible for ensuring that such fees are paid.
If the Content Provider is launching/offering new Premium Rate services, including new types of services not described in this Agreement, 4Tmay in certain cases provide guidance with regard to the compliance of the intended service with the Framework Agreement, in response to the Content Provider’s specific enquiry. 4T’s guidance is provided on a voluntary basis and the Content Provider may not assert any claims against 4T in respect of errors or omissions in such guidance.
4T will not give advice on general advertising law or other legal issues, but will refer to the possibility of advance notice from the Danish Consumer Ombudsman (Forbrugerombudsmanden) or private advice.
8. Breach by Content Provider
4T and/or Mobile Operators are entitled to, on its own initiative or following an approach by End Users or others, to review a Premium Rate Service in order to investigate whether the Content Provider is complying with the conditions governing provision of the service. The proceeds of the Content Provider made from reviews of the relevant service shall not be chargeable to the Content Provider. Where 4T or a Mobile Operator finds that a Content Provider is not complying with the conditions for Premium Rate services set out in this Framework Agreement, the 4T or the Mobile Operator is required to inform the other Party.
Any disregard of the conditions in this Framework Agreement or any breach of the applicable legislation by the Content Provider in providing Premium Rate goods and services, including failure to observe the rules relating to distance selling in the Danish Consumer Contracts Act (Forbrugeraftaleloven), shall be regarded as a major breach, entitling 4T to cancel the agreement without further notice and to terminate access to the Content Provider’s goods and services.
The Content Provider shall follow good practice in terms of both content and payment when offering a Premium Rate Service.
Cases involving a breach of the above rule shall be settled jointly in the content and payment group for the Parties to the Framework Agreement. Rulings on such breaches shall be justified on a case-by-case basis, and sanctions will not be applied under the Framework Agreement unless a ruling has been previously made public in similar cases.
The operational section consists of the following subsections:
- Maximum amounts
- Information requirements
- Content provisions
- Special services
