Information on the Right of Revocation
Right of Revocation You can revoke your declaration of agreement within 14 days without stating any reasons in writing (e.g. letter, e-mail) or – if the goods are provided before expiry of the period – by returning the goods. The period begins upon receipt of this information in writing but not earlier than the receipt of the goods at the receiver's (in case of repeated delivery of equal goods not earlier than the first partial delivery) and not earlier than the fulfilment of our duty to furnish information according to Article 246 § 2 in connection with § 1 Section 1 and 2 EGBGB (German Introductory Law of the Civil Code) as well as our duties according to § 312e Section 1 Clause 1 BGB (German Civil Code) in connection with Article 246 § 3 EGBGB. The period of revocation is met if the revocation is or the goods are send in time. The revocation is to be addressed to:
R+M de Wit GmbH Heidestraße 11 42549 Velbert E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Consequences of the Revocation In case of an effective revocation, both parties have to restore what has been received in performance of the contract and return any profit drawn (e.g. interest). If you cannot restore what has been received in performance of the contract in whole or in part or if you can restore it in a deteriorated condition, only, you have to compensate the any lost value. This does not apply to the provision of items if the deterioration of the item is exclusively attributable to the inspection of the latter – as it would have been possible in a shop. Moreover, you can avoid the duty to compensate the lost value suffered by using the item as intended by not using the item like your property and refraining from anything impairing its value. Items which can be dispatched as parcels are to be returned at our risk. You have to bear the costs for the return shipment if the delivered goods correspond to the ordered goods and if the price of the returned item does not exceed an amount of € 40 or if in case of a higher price of the item you have not yet given your consideration or have not yet made the contractually agreed partial payment at the time of the revocation. Otherwise, the return shipment is free of charge for you. Items which cannot be dispatched as parcels will be collected. Obligations to refund payments shall be fulfilled within 30 days. For you the period shall start when you send your declaration of withdrawal or the item, for us upon receipt of the latter.
