The consumer is obliged to return the product to the Seller or hand it over to a person authorized by the Seller to collect it immediately, but not later than 14 days from the day on which he withdrew from the contract, unless the Seller offered to collect the item himself. To keep the deadline, it is sufficient to return the product before its expiry.

The return of payment shall be made using the same payment methods as those used by the Consumer in the original transaction, unless the Consumer explicitly agreed to another solution. In any case, the Consumer shall not be charged any fees in connection with the form of payment return.
