Hi.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
No. It isn't a product sale.
I am sorry but there is no way around it.
If this is a rental contract then he is bound to it unless he agreed cooling off rights under the contract.
Sorry but I can only give you truthful information.
Can I clarify anything for you?
