When the consumer exercises the right of revocation, benefits have to be returned by both parties; benefits drawn (e.g. accumulated interest) must be returned where applicable. The customer must pay compensation for value for any deterioration of items or failure to return items. This does not apply in cases where deterioration is due to the examination of items as would have been possible e.g. in a retail shop.
You may avoid payment of compensation for deterioration caused by putting the item to its intended use if you do not use the item like your own property, and by avoiding any other action which might lead to deterioration of value. When exercising the right of revocation, you are obliged to make return shipment of the item at our risk, if it can be sent by parcel. Where items are returned, you are obliged to bear the cost for shipping and handling, as long as the items delivered correspond to your order, and the value of the returned item does not exceed € 40,00, and in the case of value exceeding € 40,00, if you have not yet performed the return service or any payment agreed upon by contract at the time of the revocation. Otherwise, the return of items is free of charge. Items that cannot be sent by parcel will be collected at your place of residence. The period with regard to duty of reimbursement of the consumer begins when this declaration is made; the period with regard to duty of reimbursement of the entrepreneur begins when it is received.
