Commercial analysis: The Court of Justice has ruled that when calculating the proportionate amount payable by the consumer on cancellation of a distance contract, for services performed during the cancellation period at the request of the consumer, account should be taken of the full price agreed in the contract and the amount should be calculated on a pro rata temporis basis. The value of any one specific service provided before the consumer cancelled the contract is only relevant if the contract expressly provides that such a service will be provided separately from the other services, for a price which must be paid separately.
