However, within the meaning of Section 1837 of the Civil Code, the Consumer may not withdraw from a contract:
for the provision of services if they were performed with his prior express consent before the end of the time limit for withdrawal and the entrepreneur informed the Consumer before concluding the contract that he shall thereby lose the right of withdrawal;
for the supply of goods or a service whose price depends on fluctuations of the financial market which are beyond the control of the entrepreneur and which may occur during the time limit for withdrawal;
for the supply of alcoholic beverages which can only be supplied after thirty days and whose price depends on fluctuations of the financial market which are beyond the control of the entrepreneur;
for the supply of goods which were customised or personalised;
for the supply of goods subject to rapid decay, as well as goods which were irreversibly mixed with other goods after supply;
for repair or maintenance work carried out at the place designated by the Consumer at his request; however, this does not apply in the case of subsequent unsolicited repairs or supply of unsolicited spare parts;
for the supply of sealed goods which were unsealed after supply by the Consumer and which are not suitable for return due to hygiene reasons;

We recommend to submit a notice of withdrawal from the purchase contract in writing. A notice of withdrawal must be provably sent to the Seller within 14 days from the date of:
the goods takeover, or
takeover of the last supply of goods if several kinds of goods or the supply of several parts or items have been ordered in one order.

The Seller may only return to the Consumer the funds received in a different manner if the Buyer agrees and if no other expenses are incurred by the Buyer in connection therewith. Should the Consumer withdraw from the purchase contract, the Seller is not obliged to return the received funds to the Buyer before the Buyer returns the goods or demonstrates that the goods have already been sent to the Seller.
The Consumer is liable to an entrepreneur only for the reduction in the value of goods caused by the handling of the goods in a manner other than that which is necessary with regard to its nature and properties.

If the goods was used or partially worn, or partially consumed, the Seller shall calculate decrease in the value of the goods, which the Seller shall subsequently claim from the Consumer.
If the Consumer receives from the Seller together with the shipment of the ordered goods a free gift on the purchase of the goods and the Consumer subsequently withdraws from the purchase contract, the subject-matter of which was delivery of such goods, the Consumer shall return to the Seller also the gift together with such goods. If the Consumer fails to do so, he shall pay to the Seller the purchase price of such gift.
The Seller is entitled to unilaterally offset a claim for compensation for damages caused to the goods against the Buyer’s claim to a refund of the purchase price.

the goods are of corresponding quantity, scope or weight and
the goods meet the requirements of legal regulations.

If the Consumer asks, the Seller shall confirm in writing the scope and duration of the Seller’s obligations in the event of defective performance. If it is necessary, the Seller shall explain in such confirmation, in an intelligible manner, the content, scope, conditions and duration of his liability and the manner in which the rights arising from his liability can be exercised.

The warranty period shall commence upon the thing handover to the Consumer; if the thing was shipped as specified in the contract, the warranty period shall commence upon delivery of the thing to the place of destination.

If the delivery of a new thing, or its part, is impossible, the Consumer may withdraw from the contract. However, if this would be unreasonable in view of the nature of the defect, in particular, if the defect can be removed without undue delay, the Consumer shall be entitled to removal of the defect free of charge.
The Consumer shall also be entitled to delivery of a new thing, or replacement of a part, even if the defect can be removed, if the the Consumer cannot properly use the thing due to repeated occurrence of defects after a repair or due to multiple defects.

The Consumer shall also be entitled to a reasonable discount if the Seller cannot deliver a new thing free from defects, replace a part of the thing or repair it, as well as if the Seller does not make the remedy within a reasonable time-limit or if the making of the remedy would cause considerable inconvenience to the Consumer.
