Orange 14-day (e)sim plans: calendar days or 24hr days?

I've tried to find this answer elsewhere but have failed, so I hope someone here has experience with this:

How does Orange count its 14 days? If I arrive & activate the esim at 0900 on day 1, will it expire on day 14 at 2359, on day 15 at 0859, or at some other time?


ps: I know they also offer top-ups.

I believe that Orange plans come pre-activated, so the clock starts running when you first use the plan at your eSIM destination, and the data credit expires at the end of the 14th day following that first usage.

Thanks @Mardee - that's my question: is it the end of the 14th calendar day (that is, midnight) or the end of the 14th 24-hr day (that is, after 14 24-hr blocks starting from the time of activation)?

I don't know the answer, but I do know renewing or buying more time is not going to work online using Canadian credit cards. You need to go into a shop and do it there. And if you travel from Spain, for example, and have a Spanish Orange SIM that expires on you, you can forget trying to renew that in France. You basically have to start all over. Ask me how I know...
