4.1 RIGHT OF REVOCATION
When you purchase products and you are a consumer, you have a statutory right of revocation. If you buy the capsules for your commercial activity or self-employment as a contractor, you have no statutory right of revocation.
The first thing you should know is that if you decide to return products, you can use the return shipping label enclosed with your order. If you require a new return shipping label, you can contact Customer Care to request one (contact details below). Please help us to avoid unnecessary costs by always using the return shipping label when returning products.
You are entitled to revocate from this contract within fourteen days without stating any reasons. The deadline for revocation is fourteen days from the date in which you, or a third party appointed by you to that effect, which is not the shipper, take possession of the first goods. In order to exercise your right of revocation, you are required to inform us about your decision to rescind this contract by issuing an unequivocal statement to us (e.g. through a letter sent through the postal service, a phone call and an electronic mail message). You may, but must not, use the sample revocation form provided below to that effect. (You may attach it to an e-mail message and complete it with your personal data, or send it to us as a letter after having printed and completed it).
4.2 CONSEQUENCES OF THE RIGHT OF REVOCATION
In the event that you terminate this contract, we are required to refund to you all the payments we received, inclusive of delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs that were incurred from the fact that you chose a different delivery method than the standard reasonably priced shipment we offered), forthwith and not later than within fourteen days from the date on which we received the notification of your withdrawal as mentioned above. Unless both parties agreed expressively on a different procedure, we use the same payment method to perform such payment refund that you used for the original transaction. Under no circumstances will we charge you with fees for such a refund of payment. We will be entitled to refuse to make the payment refund until we receive possession of the goods, or until you provide proof about having returned the goods, the earlier date of these two options.
You are required to return, render, or to turn over, the goods forthwith, and in any event not later than within fourteen days from the date on which you inform us about the termination of this contract. The deadline is kept if you send the goods before the expiry date of the aforementioned deadline. We will carry the costs of the refund of goods, if you requested in advance to [email protected] a return label and used it.
You are only responsible for a possible loss of value of the product in the event that such loss can be traced back, by implementing a test of its characteristics, features and method of operation, to an unnecessary handling of such goods.
4.3 EXCEPTIONS TO THE RIGHT OF REVOCATION
The right of withdrawal does not apply to contracts about the delivery of goods, which are not suitable for a return delivery, or which can deteriorate rapidly due to their characteristics This applies, for example, to already used or to impurified cosmetic products, especially if they are opened.

8. RIGHTS IN CASES OF DEFICIENCIES, COMPENSATION
The Supplier is required to provide supplementary performance in instances in which the supplied goods do not have the quality or constitution mutually agreed between the Supplier and the Customer, or if they do not generally suit the uses required in accordance with the contract. The aforementioned does not apply if the Supplier is entitled to refuse to such supplementary performance based on a legal arrangement. The Customer is required to grant the Supplier an appropriate period of time to that effect.
Based on the Customer’s choice, the supplementary performance takes place by disposing of the deficiency or, alternatively, through the delivery of new product. The Customer is not entitled to decrease the purchase price, or to rescind the contract, during the period of time granted for supplementary performance. The supplementary performance will be considered as failed if the Supplier attempted such supplementary performance twice to no avail. If such supplementary performance fails, the Customer is entitled to decrease the purchase price or to rescind the contract regarding such products with deficiency. The customer is not entitled to rescind from the contract, if the deficiency is not significant.
The Customer is entitled to demand compensation subject to the provisions detailed hereinafter, as a result of a deficiency, in instances in which the supplementary performance failed in accordance with the aforementioned provisions.
