The aforementioned cooling-off period starts the day after the consumer, or a third party designated in advance by the consumer, who is not the carrier, has received the product, or:
- if the consumer ordered several products in the same order: the day on which the consumer, or a third party designated by the consumer, received the last product.

During the reflection period, the Consumer shall handle the product and its packaging with care.

The consumer is only liable for diminished value of the product resulting from a way of handling the product that goes beyond that permitted in paragraph 1.
The consumer is not liable for depreciation of the product if the entrepreneur did not provide him with all legally required information on the right of withdrawal before or at the conclusion of the contract.

If the consumer exercises his right of withdrawal, he shall notify the entrepreneur within the withdrawal period by means of the model withdrawal form or in another unambiguous manner.
As soon as possible, but within 14 days from the day following the notification referred to in paragraph 1, the consumer returns the product, or hands it to (an authorized representative of) the entrepreneur. This is not required if the entrepreneur has offered to pick up the product himself. The consumer has observed the return period in any case if he returns the product before the cooling-off period has expired.
The consumer returns the product with all delivered accessories, if reasonably possible in its original condition and packaging, and in accordance with the reasonable and clear instructions provided by the entrepreneur.
The risk and burden of proof for the correct and timely exercise of the right of withdrawal lies with the consumer.

Unless the entrepreneur offers to pick up the product himself, he may wait with repayment until he has received the product or until the consumer proves that he has returned the product, whichever is earlier.
For reimbursement, the entrepreneur uses the same means of payment that the consumer has used, unless the consumer agrees to another method. The refund is free of charge to the consumer.
If the consumer has chosen a more expensive method of delivery than the cheapest standard delivery, the entrepreneur does not have to refund the additional costs for the more expensive method.
