- Our file number
- Reasons on which your opposition is based or a description of the facts
- Significant evidence – if, for example, you have already paid the open invoice, we ask you to send us proof of payment (bank statement, receipt voucher, etc.); in the case of returns, you must present us with the return receipt or provide us with the consignment number; the cancellation of a contract (subscription, membership) must be proven by means of a confirmation of cancellation.
