Consequences of cancellation
If you cancel this agreement, then we must repay you for all payments we received from you, including delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs if you select another type of delivery besides the least expensive standard delivery option we offer) promptly, and at the latest within fourteen days from the date we received the notification that you are cancelling this agreement.

This term is considered fulfilled if you send off the goods within fourteen days. We will pay the costs for return shipment of the goods.

This is in particular the case if we are also your lender, or if your lender requires our collaboration in relation to the financing. If we have already received payment of the loan by the time this cancellation goes into effect, then your lender shall enter into our rights and obligations under the financed agreement in relation to you with respect to the legal consequences of cancellation or return.

For details, please see the cancellation policy (see above).
