You may declare the revocation of your contractual statement in text form (e.g. letter, e-mail) or by returning the merchandise within a period of 2 weeks from the date of purchase. The 2 weeks start with your receipt of these revocation instructions, latest after receipt of the merchandise.

- 2 Consequences of revocation
In case of a valid revocation, all mutually received performances as well as emoluments taken (e.g. interest), if applicable, are to be restituted by either side. If you are unable or partially unable to restitute the merchandise to us or can only restitute it in a deteriorated condition, then you have to insofar compensate for its value where applicable. This does not apply if the deterioration is exclusively due to examining the merchandise – as for instance in a retail store – or putting the merchandise to its intended use. You are obliged to bear the costs of the return shipment, if the merchandise delivered corresponds to the merchandise ordered, and if the price of the merchandise to be sent back does not exceed an amount of CHF 75.- or if, where the price is higher, you have at the date of the revocation not yet rendered consideration or given a partial payment. In all other cases, the return shipment for you is free of charge. All reimbursement obligations must be fulfilled within 30 days of the declaration of revocation.
- 3 Special cases
No right of revocation applies for:
- Specially designed or altered products according to clients’ request, e.g. a book signing.
