(3) At the request of a prospective purchaser, the information required by subsection (1) shall be furnished before payment or the placing of an order for a multiple.  If payment is made by the purchaser before delivery of the multiple, the information shall be furnished at the time of or before delivery, in which case, the purchaser shall be entitled to a refund if, for reasons related to the information, the purchaser returns the multiple in substantially the condition in which received, within 30 days after receipt.
