You can revoke your contract within 14 days without giving reasons in writing (letter, e-mail) or – if the case before the deadline – by returning the goods. The period begins on receipt of this instruction in writing, but not before receipt of the goods at the recipient and not before fulfillment of our information obligations under Article 246 § 2 in conjunction with § 1 paragraph 1 and 2 EGBGB and our obligations under § 312g paragraph 1 sentence 1 BGB in conjunction with Article 246 § 3 EGBGB.

Consequences of the cancellation
In the case of an effective cancellation, the mutually received benefits and any benefits (eg interest) surrendered. If you can not give us back or give us the received performance as well as usages (eg use advantages) or only partially or only in a deteriorated condition, you have to pay us compensation. For the deterioration of the thing and for drawn uses, you only have to pay compensation if the use or the deterioration is due to a handling of the thing, which goes beyond the examination of the characteristics and the functioning.

The term “testing the properties and the mode of operation” means testing and trying out the respective goods, as is possible and customary in a jewellery shop, for example.

The return is free of charge for you within Germany. In all other countries, the return is at the expense of the buyer. Upon receipt of your cancellation, we will send you a return label for the return. Obligations to reimburse payments must be fulfilled within 30 days.
