9. Refund and return policy
9.1 Right of withdrawal
You have the right to cancel this contract within 14 days without giving any reason.
The withdrawal period expires after 14 days from the day on which you, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you, acquires physical possession of the goods.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us of your decision to cancel this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail). You will find our contact details below. You can also use the enclosed sample cancellation form, but this is not obligatory.
If you make use of this option, we will immediately send you an acknowledgement of receipt of this withdrawal on a durable medium (e.g. by e-mail).
To comply with the withdrawal period, all you have to do is send your notice of withdrawal before the withdrawal period expires.
9.2 Effects of withdrawal
If you terminate this contract, we will refund all payments received from you, including delivery charges (with the exception of any additional charges resulting from your choice of a delivery type other than the cheapest standard delivery type we offer), without undue delay and in any event no later than 14 days from the day we are informed of your decision to terminate this contract. We will make this refund using the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any costs as a result of this refund.
You must return the goods or hand them over to us or to a person authorized by us to receive the goods, without undue delay and, in any event, no later than 14 days from the day on which you notify us of your withdrawal from this contract. The deadline is met if you return the goods before the 14-day period has expired.
We may suspend the refund until we have received the returned goods or you have provided proof that you have returned the goods, whichever comes first.
We will cover the cost of returning/collecting the goods.
You are solely responsible for any reduction in the value of the goods resulting from handling other than that necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
Please note that there are certain legal exceptions to the right of withdrawal, and therefore some items cannot be returned or exchanged. We will let you know if this applies to your particular case.
