§ 7 Instructions on consumer's right of revocation

Right of revocation:

You have the right to revoke your declaration of intent within 14 days without any specification of reasons in written form (e. g. letter, facsimile, e-mail) or – if the goods are ceded to you before expiry of this period of time – also by return of the goods. The period of time begins at the point of time when you have been informed in text form, but does not commence prior to the date of receipt of the goods by the receiver (in case of recurrent deliveries of goods of similar type not prior to the date of receipt of the first partial shipment) and also not prior to the date of the fulfillment of our information requirements under the terms of Article 246 § 2 in conjunction with § 1 para. 1 and 2 Introductory Act to the Civil Code (IACC) and our duties under the terms of § 312e para. 1 s. 1 German Civil Code in conjunction with Article 246 § 3 IACC. To comply with the time limit, dispatch in good time is sufficient.

Notice of revocation is to be made to: PILS GmbH, Seewiesenstr. 25, 71334 Waiblingen, Germany; e-mail: shop@pils-rasur.de; facsimile: +49 (0) 7151 1671094

Consequences of revocation:

In case of effective revocation, mutually received benefits are to be returned and any returns received (e. g. interest) are to be released.

If the benefits and usage (e. g. amenity and advantage of using) received by you cannot be returned or ceded or can only be returned or ceded in part or can only be returned or ceded in a deteriorated state, you will be required to compensate us to that extent for damages incurred or decrease in value. For decrease in value of goods and benefits received you will only be required to compensate insofar as the benefits or decrease in value can be ascribed to handling of the goods in a manner exceeding inspection of properties and functionality. "Inspection of properties and functionality" is taken to mean testing and trialf of respective goods in a manner possible, for instance, in a shop.

If goods can be returned by parcel, return shipments will be at our risk. You will have to bear the regular costs for the return shipment if the delivered goods comply with the goods ordered and if the price of the goods to be returned does not exceed 40 Euros or if the price of the goods to be returned exceeds 40 Euros and you have, at the time of delivery, not rendered compensation or partial payment contractually agreed upon. Otherwise, return shipments will be cost-free. If goods cannot be returned by parcel, they will be retrieved from your address. Obligations of reimbursement have to be fulfilled within 30 days. The period of time for reimbursement will commence upon giving notification of revocation or sending back the goods for you, upon receipt of goods for us.

End of instructions on consumer's right of revocation.

§ 8 Postage and packing costs when exercising right of revocation

If you as customer exercise your right of revocation (cf. Instruction on Customers’ Right of Revocation), you will have to bear regular postage and packing costs if the price of the goods to be returned does not exceed 40 Euros incl. Value Added Tax or if the price of the goods to be returned exceeds 40 Euros and you have, at the time of revocation, not rendered compensation or partial payment contractually agreed upon. Otherwise, return shipments will be cost-free.
