The names and addresses of such persons are not required to be preprinted on the service contract and may be added to the service contract at the time of the sale.

(e) Include the purchase price of the service contract. The purchase price must be determined pursuant to a schedule of fees established by the provider.

(m) Indicate whether any defect in the goods covered by the service contract existing on the date the contract is purchased is not covered under the service contract.

2.

The Commissioner may require the provider to amend any service contract that the Commissioner determines is false or misleading.
