§ 3 RETURNS
Right of return
You may return the goods delivered within 14 days by return shipment without stating any reason. The time limit commences on receipt of this advisory in text form (e.g. letter, fax, e-mail), however, not until the recipient has received the goods (or not until receipt of the first partial delivery in the event of recurring deliveries of similar goods), and not until we have fulfilled our duties of information under Art. 246 sec. 2 in conjunction with Sec. 1 (1) and (2) EGBGB and not until we have fulfilled our duties under Sec. 312g (1) s. 1 BGB in conjunction with Art. 246 sec. 3 EGBGB.

You are required to compensate us for any loss in value for deteriorated goods or benefits derived only to the extent that such benefits or deterioration are due to any handling of the goods extending beyond an inspection of their qualities and functions. “Inspection for qualities and functions” means the testing and trial of the goods, as is possible and common in, for example, a store.
