Questions referred

1.

For the purposes of applying Article 8(4) of Directive 2011/83/EU, (1) does the answer to the question whether a means of distance communication (in this instance, an advertising leaflet containing a mail order coupon) allows limited space or time to display information depend on whether

(a)

(in the abstract) the means of distance communication allows only limited space or time by its very nature

or

(b)

(in the particular case) it offers limited space or time in the design selected for it by the trader?

2.

Is it compatible with Article 8(4) and Article 6(1)(h) of Directive 2011/83/EU for information on the right of withdrawal to be restricted to an indication of the existence of a right of withdrawal, in the case, as provided for in Article 8(4) of Directive 2011/83/EU, where there is limited scope for displaying that information?

3.

Do Article 8(4) and Article 6(1)(h) of Directive 2011/83/EU make it a mandatory requirement in all cases, including in the case where there is limited scope for displaying information, for the model withdrawal form set out in Annex I(B) to Directive 2011/83/EU to be attached to the means of distance communication before a distance contract is concluded?
