means of an internal complaint handling procedure. The retailer must inform
the consumer via a durable medium, for example, by email:
- if the complaint cannot be settled with the consumer;
- to provide the name and website address of an ADR entity or EU listed
body that would be competent to handle the complaint; and
- whether the consumer is obliged or may be willing to submit to an ADR
procedure operated by a competent body.
Such retailers must

to use that provider.
