The financial institution may not obligate the customer to pay for the debt cancellation product until after the financial institution has received the customer's written acknowledgment of receipt of disclosures unless the financial institution:
(a) Maintains sufficient documentation to show that the financial institution provided the acknowledgment of receipt of disclosures to the customer as required by this rule;
(b) Maintains sufficient documentation to show that the financial institution made reasonable efforts to obtain from the customer a written acknowledgment of receipt of the long form disclosures; and
