In order to comply with the revocation period, it is sufficient that you send the notification of the exercise of the right of revocation before the expiry of the revocation period.

Consequences of the revocation

If you revoke this Agreement, we will refund to you as soon as possible all payments we have received from you, including delivery charges (other than additional charges resulting from your choosing a method of delivery other than the low-cost standard delivery offered by us). For this refund we will use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction.

We may refuse to refund until we have received the Goods back or until you have proved that you have returned the Goods, whichever is earlier.

You must return or deliver the Goods to us immediately and in any event no later than fourteen days from the date on which you notify us of the revocation of this Contract. This period shall be deemed to have been observed if you dispatch the goods before expiry of the period of fourteen days.

If the supplementary performance fails, the customer may, at his discretion, demand a reduction in payment (reduction), rescission of the contract (withdrawal) or damages instead of performance. If the customer chooses damages instead of performance, the limitations of liability according to § 8 Ziff. 1 and 2 shall apply.
