You may declare the revocation of your contractual statement in text form (e.g. letter, fax, email) or by returning the merchandise within a period of one month without giving any reasons.

Consequences of revocation
In case of a valid revocation, all mutually received performances as well as emoluments taken (e.g. interest), if applicable, are to be restituted by either side. If you are unable or partially unable to restitute the merchandise to us or can only restitute it in a deteriorated condition, then you have to insofar compensate for its value where applicable. This does not apply if the deterioration is exclusively due to examining the merchandise – as for instance in a retail store – or putting the merchandise to its intended use. Things that can be shipped by parcel are to be returned on our cost and risk. Things that cannot be shipped by parcel will be picked up. All reimbursement obligations must be fulfilled within 30 days of the declaration of revocation. For you the period commences with the despatch of your declaration of revocation or with the despatch of the merchandise, for us with the receipt of the same.
