For the repayment we shall use the same payment method you have used on the initial transaction except for the conclusion of a different explicit agreement with you; on no account shall you be charged because of the refund.
We shall be allowed to refuse repayment until we will have received back the returned goods or until you will have provided evidence of having sent back the goods, depending on which dates first. You will have to send back or hand over the returned goods immediately and in any case latest within 14 days beginning with the day you have informed us about the withdrawal from this contract. The deadline is met if you send off the goods within 14 days. You shall bear the direct cost of returning the goods.
