    Where the statement of fees is provided by electronic means payment service providers may, provided that at the same time the consumer is provided with a copy of the statement of fees in line with the template laid down in the Annex and completed as set out in Articles 2 to 17, modify the template in only the following ways:

    1. (a)

      by way of derogation from point (d) of Article 1(3), increase the font sizes, provided that the proportion of sizes as set out in Article 1(3) is retained;

    2. (b)

      where the dimensions of the electronic tools are such that using several tables and columns would make the statement of fees difficult to read, use a single column or a single table if the order of information, headings and sub-headings are retained;

    3. (c)

      use electronic tools, such as layering and pop-ups, provided that the title of the statement of fees, the common symbol, headings and sub-headings, are displayed prominently and the order of information is retained.

  2. (2)

    The use of the electronic tools referred to in point (c) of paragraph 1 shall not be intrusive that it could distract the consumer from the information in the statement of fees. Information provided through layering and pop-ups shall be limited to the information referred to in this Regulation.
