It is not necessary to provide reasons for the withdrawal. The period for possible withdrawal starts upon receipt of this information, though not before the goods have been received by the customer; in the case of recurring deliveries with receipt of the first partial order, and not before information according to Artikel 246 § 2 EGBGB in connection with § 1 Abs. 1 und 2 EGBGB and fulfilled obligations § 312e Abs. 1 Satz 1 BGB in connection with Artikel 246 § 3 EGBGB.

5.2 In case of a valid withdrawal from the contract, the goods and services received by both sides must be returned and any costs of use (e.g., interest) are to be reimbursed. If you cannot completely or partially return the services or goods received, or can only return them in a damaged condition, you must provide us compensation consistent with the extent of the damage. In returning goods, this does not apply if the degradation of the goods is exclusively due to an examination such as would occur in a retail store. You can avoid the obligation of paying compensation for damage to the goods if you do not treat the goods as your own property and do not carry out actions that diminish the value of the goods.
5.3 We assume the risk for goods returned by parcel post. You must pay the costs for the return if the delivered goods are those that were ordered, or when the price of the returned goods does not exceed €40.00. If the goods cost more than €40.00, and you have not yet made full payment or the contractual partial payment, then you assume the costs for returning the delivered goods. If the goods cannot be mailed by parcel post, they will be picked up at your location. The obligation for reimbursement of payments must be fulfilled within 14 days. This period begins when your notice of withdrawal from contract or the returned goods are sent, and for us with the reception of such notice or goods. The postage for the return must be adequate. If the price of the returned goods is more than €40.00, the postage, as well as any partial or full payments already received, will be reimbursed upon receipt of the returned goods.
5.4 A right of withdrawal from the contract does not exist for goods that are made to customer specifications, specifically customized to customer’s personal needs or for goods that, because of their nature, are not suitable for a return.
