The termination period of 14 days begins on the day on which the customer, or a named third party who is not the carrier, has taken receipt of the goods.

The customer may cancel the order with us through a clear means of communication (eg. a post-dated letter, fax, e-mail or telephone call. The customer may also, but does not have to, use the notice of cancellation form provided.

Consequences of Cancellation

Should the customer have successfully canceled the contract, Mohr Siebeck will refund all costs, including those for delivery (apart from those costs which were incurred through the choice of a shipping method more expensive than the standard method offered by Mohr Siebeck). Refunds will be made without delay and within 14 days of receipt of the order of cancellation. The method of refund will be the same as for the original transaction, unless otherwise clearly agreed. No charges will be made for this refund.

Mohr Siebeck may refuse the refund until all goods have been returned or until the customer can provide proof of shipment, dependent on whichever occurs first.

The customer is to return or hand over goods to Mohr Siebeck without delay and at the latest within 14 days of the receipt of the order of cancellation. The time limit has been honored when the customer has sent the goods before the end of the 14 day period. The direct cost of returning the goods falls to the customer.

The customer can avoid the obligation to compensate for lost value for the deterioration due to the use of the product as specified by not using the product as his/her own property and refraining from doing anything which could detract from its value.
