In the case of deterioration of the goods and benefits derived, you shall be obliged to compensate us only if the use or deterioration is attributable to any handling of the object that goes beyond inspection of properties and functions. “Inspection of properties and functions” is to be understood as testing and trying out the goods in question as would have been possible or usual in a retail outlet.

Otherwise, the return consignment is free of charge. Goods that are not suitable for sending by parcel post will be collected. Obligations to refund payments must be met within 30 days. The deadline shall commence for you on the date you sent the notice of cancellation or the goods and, for us, following receipt of same.
