For this refund we will use the same payment method that you used for the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with you; however, you will not be charged for this refund. We may refuse to refund until we have received the goods delivered or until we have received proof that you have returned the goods, whichever is the earlier.
You must return or hand over the goods to us
immediately and not later than fourteen days after the day on which you notify us of the revocation of this contract. This period will be considered observed if you dispatch the goods before the expiry of the period of fourteen days. You bear the immediate costs of returning the goods. The costs shall be estimated at a maximum of approximately EUR 10, whereby the final amount depends on the order quantity selected by you (the aforementioned cost estimate refers to a standard shipment of 1 piece within Austria).
