§ 8 Notice and information about consumers' right to cancellation
Notice of the right to cancel
You are entitled to cancel your order in writing (e.g. letter, fax, e-mail) within 14 days without giving any reasons or – if the goods have been delivered to you before the end of that period – by returning the goods. The period begins following receipt of this notice in writing, however not before receipt of the goods by the recipient (in the case of recurring delivery of the same type of goods, not before receipt of the first part delivery) and also not before performance of our duties to inform. The cancellation period shall be deemed to be observed if the cancellation or the goods are sent in good time. The notice of cancellation shall be sent to:
In the case of the notice of cancellation in written form sent to :
932 Wilson St
Los Angeles, CA 90021
In the case of the notice of cancellation sent by or by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the case of a notice of cancellation by returning the goods, the goods shall be returned to:
932 Wilson St
Los Angeles, CA 90021
Consequences of cancellation
In case of an effective cancellation, the any goods or payments received by either party are to be returned and any benefits that may have been obtained (e.g. interest) are to be repaid. If you are partly or wholly unable to return the goods to us or only in a deteriorated condition, you must compensate us accordingly. This does not apply to the delivered goods if the deterioration in their condition is solely due to your checking them – as you would be able to in a shop. Otherwise, you can avoid the obligation to pay compensation for any deterioration resulting from proper intended use of the goods by not using them as if they were your property and by avoiding any activity which could adversely affect their value. Goods which can be sent as a parcel are to be returned at our risk. You have to pay the costs of the return if the delivered goods are as ordered and if the price of the goods to be returned does not exceed $40 or, if the price of the goods is higher, if you have not yet paid for the goods or made a contractually agreed partial payment by the time of the cancellation. Otherwise the return is free of charge for you. Goods which cannot be sent as a parcel will be collected from you. Obligations to reimburse payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. For you the period begins when you send your notice of cancellation or the goods, for us it begins on receipt.
End of the notice of the right to cancel
