  12. Period of Withdrawal
    1. General
      1. When purchasing products, you, as a consumer, have a withdrawal period of 14 days. The withdrawal period begins the day after the day you received the product or if you ordered several products in a single order: the day you, or a third party designated by you, received the last product of this order – if the delivery of a product consists of several shipments or parts: the day you, or a third party designated by you, received the last shipment or the last part; – in the case of contracts for regular delivery of products for a certain period of time, such as a magazine every month: the day you, or a third party designated by you, received the first product. During this period, you have the possibility to break the contract without reason. You can use the model withdrawal form or let us know in another clear way that we will cancel the contract. If the notification is made online, we will confirm receipt. You must return the products within 14 days of withdrawal. This is called the right of withdrawal.
      2. During the withdrawal period, you must be careful with the product and its packaging. This means that you only unpack or use the product to the extent necessary to determine whether you want to keep it. If you exercise your right of withdrawal, you must return the product to us with all accessories delivered and – if reasonably possible – in its original condition and packaging. We give you clear information on how to proceed.
      3. You are only responsible for damage to the equipment resulting from a  method of handling the product that goes beyond what is permitted in paragraph 2. We are entitled to add the price of the impairment loss to the amount you receive in return.
      4. If you exercise your right of withdrawal, you will have to pay at most the costs of returning the goods. If this is not possible by mail, we will make a cost estimate for you. If we bear the return costs, we will clearly indicate this.
      5. All other fees you have already paid, will be refunded as soon as possible, in any case no later than 14 days after withdrawal. As part of a refund, we have the right to wait until we have received the products or until you have demonstrated that you have returned the products.
