Instructions on cancellation

Right of revocation

You can revoke your contractual declaration within 14 days in writing (e.g., letter, e-mail) without stating reasons or, if the goods have been sent to you before the end of the deadline, by returning the goods. The termination period shall commence upon receipt of this notification in writing, however not before receipt of the goods by the recipient, and not prior to us fulfilling our information obligation pursuant to 246 § 2 §312c par. 2 BGB in conjunction with § 1 par. 1 and 2 EGBGB as well as our obligation pursuant to §312e par. 1 term 1 BGB in conjunction with 246 § 3 EGBGB, and not prior to the sales contract becoming obligatory for you by accepting the purchased goods. To meet the cancellation time limit, it suffices to send the revocation or return the goods in due time. The revocation should be addressed to:

Clemens Lode Verlag e.K.
Königsallee 106
40215 Düsseldorf
or directly to the Support

Revocation consequences

In the event of a valid revocation, any performances received and emoluments taken (such as interests) are to be returned by each party to the respective other party. Should you not be able to return the item received in its original state, or only in a damaged state, you may if applicable, be obliged to pay the value of replacement. In the event that the goods are at your disposal, this clause does not apply if the damage to the goods can exclusively be traced back to their inspection, as, for instance, would have been possible in a shop. The consumer has the duty to inspect the product carefully.

Furthermore, you can avoid the obligation to pay value replacement caused by damage to the goods due to its use in compliance with the regulations by not making personal use of the goods as if it were your property, and by avoiding any steps that may cause value reduction. Goods transportable in packages are to be returned to us at our risk. You are to bear the transport costs if the delivered goods correspond to those ordered, and if the price of the goods returned will not exceed the amount of Euro 40.00, or if, in the event of a higher price, the payment agreed or any agreed partial payment has not been effected at the point of revocation. In any other case, the return consignment is free of transport charges for you. Non-transportable goods will be collected at your address. Obligations for the reimbursement of payments must be met within 30 days. For you, the term commences with the posting date, and for us, with the reception date of your declaration of revocation or of your return shipment.

End of revocation clauses


8.2 The right of cancellation shall not exist for distance selling contracts for the delivery of merchandise which is manufactured according to customer’s specifications or which is clearly tailored to personal requirements, or for the delivery of audio or video recordings or of software if the delivered data carriers were unsealed by the consumer. Please avoid damage or contamination of the goods and any accessories, by returning them if possible in their original packaging and include all parts of the original packaging.

8.3 Please avoid damage and contamination. Send the goods if possible in their original packaging with all accessories and with all packaging components to us. Should you no longer be in possession of the original package, and then please make sure that you use a suitable carton to return the goods to avoid transportation damages.

8.4 Please return the commodity as an insured package and retain the certificate of delivery. If requested we can refund to you the shipping costs in advance.

8.5 If you wish to return a purchase please notify us at our contact website. This way you ensure the quickest handling of the parcel and products.

8.6 Please consider that the modalities stated in the paragraphs § 8.3 to § 8.5 are not preconditions for the effective execution of the right of revocation.

8a. Costs for return shipments in case of the exertion of the right of revocation

In the event that you make use of the legal right of revocation according to § 8, you shall bear the regular costs of reshipment if the delivered goods comply with the ordered goods, and if the price of reshipment does not exceed the amount of Euro 40.00 or if in the case of a higher price of the goods you have not yet performed the service in return or any partial payment as agreed upon by contract at the point in time of revocation. Otherwise, the return will be free of charge for you.
