(1) The name and address and telephone number of the product promoter;

(2) A list of the price or fee, including any handling, shipping, delivery, or other charges, being requested from the consumer;

(b)

(1) If the consumer sends a payment to the product promoter in the form of cash, check, money order, or other form of payment without having included a signed copy of the agreement to obtain the consumer product, the consumer may cancel the transaction by notifying the product promoter in writing by certified mail with return receipt requested and returning the consumer product to the product promoter in substantially the same condition as he or she received the product.
