Consequences of revocation
If you cancel this contract, we must return to you all payments we have received from you, excluding delivery costs, without delay and at the latest within fourteen days of the day on which we received notification of your cancellation of this contract.

You must return or hand over the goods to us without delay and in any case no later than fourteen days from the day on which you notify us of the cancellation of this contract. The deadline is met if you send the goods before the end of the period of fourteen days. You shall bear the costs of returning the goods.

Any loss in value of the goods due to wearing, washing, or causing other signs of use as well as removal of the security label, removal/damage of the original packaging, accessories or similar will therefore result in the return being rejected, as we cannot offer these items for sale again. In this case, the goods will be returned to the customer without a refund of the purchase price.

2.2 The return of the goods shall be made exclusively with the shipping service provider via which the package was delivered (DHL or UPS).
