When an insurer rejects such a transaction on the basis of this clause, it shall inform the policyholder or, in their absence, their beneficiary, in writing or by e-mail. In this case, the policyholder has the right to terminate the insurance contract without falling due to the insurer for the costs or fees of this. Under no circumstances can a rejection by the insurer on the basis of this clause give rise to any kind of compensation.
