  1. The Consumer can terminate an agreement for services or an agreement         for delivery of digital content that is not delivered on a physical carrier without giving reasons during at least 14 days.

This need not be done if the entrepreneur offered to collect the product         himself. The Consumer observed the period of returning the product in any       event if the product is returned before the expiration of the period of     reflection.

  4. The risk and the burden of proof for the correct and timely exercise of the       right of withdrawal fall on the Consumer.
  5. The Consumer shall bear the direct costs of returning the product. If the           Entrepreneur has not reported that the Consumer has to bear these costs or if          the Entrepreneur pointed out that he will bear the costs himself, the          Consumer need not pay the cost of returning the product.
  6. If the Consumer withdraws after having first explicitly requested that the          performance of a service or the supply of gas, water or electricity having not        been made ready for sale not be started in a limited volume or given quantity     during the period of reflection, the Consumer shall pay the Entrepreneur an         amount that is equal to the part of the obligation already   performed at the     time of withdrawal as compared with the full compliance of the   obligation.
  7. The Consumer does not bear the costs for performing services for the supply    of water, gas or electricity that had not been made ready for sale in a limited      volume or quantity, or for the supply of district heating if
  8. the Entrepreneur has not provided the Consumer with the statutorily                  required information about the right of withdrawal, the compensation of            costs in case of withdrawal or the standard form for withdrawal, or
  9. if the Consumer has not explicitly requested that the performance of                  the service or the supply of gas, water and electricity or district heating               be started during the period of reflection.

8.             The Consumer does not bear any cost for the full or partial delivery of               digital content not stored on a physical carrier if

  2. he did not acknowledge to lose his right of withdrawal when giving           consent; or
  3. the Entrepreneur failed to confirm the Consumer’s statement.
  4. If the Consumer exercises his right of withdrawal, all additional agreements       end by operation of law.

  2. The Entrepreneur shall reimburse all payments made by the Consumer,   including any delivery costs that the Consumer may charge for the returned         product, as soon as possible but within 14 days following the day on which the Consumer notified him of the withdrawal. Unless the Entrepreneur offers   to collect the product himself, he can wait with paying back until having         received the product or until the Consumer proved that he returned the           product, whichever occurs first.
  3. The Entrepreneur shall make use of the same means of payment that the         Consumer used, unless the Consumer consents to another method. The   reimbursement is free of charge for the Consumer.

Article 15 – Payment

 

1.     Unless otherwise stipulated in the agreement or in the additional conditions,       the amounts to be paid by the Consumer must be settled within 14 days after     the period of reflection, or if there is no period of reflection within 14 days      after concluding the agreement. In case of an agreement to provide a service,         this period starts on the day that the Consumer received the confirmation of     the agreement.

2.     When selling products to Consumers, it is not permitted to negotiate an   advance payment of more than 50% in the General Terms and Conditions.

3.     The Consumer has the duty to inform the Entrepreneur promptly of possible      inaccuracies in the payment details that were given or specified.

4.     In case the Consumer has not complied with his payment obligation(s) in time, and the Entrepreneur has pointed out to him that the payment was late       and allowed the Consumer a period of 14 days to comply with the payment      obligations, the Consumer is to pay the statutory interest on the amount         payable and the Entrepreneur is entitled to charge the Consumer with any         extrajudicial collection costs. These extrajudicial collection costs amount to no more than 15% for outstanding amounts up to € 2,500, 10% for the following    € 2,500 and 5% for the following € 5000, with a minimum of € 40.
