2.      Right of Cancellation

Consumers have a right to cancel a distance contract within the cancellation period of two weeks without any reasons in text form (i.e. letter, fax, e-mail) or by return of the good.

In order to comply with the time limit, dispatch in good time is sufficient. The cancellation has to be declared to, alternatively the good has to be returned to:

Cephyrhills-World, Proprietor Dipl. Ing. Frank Wege, Welkenrather Straße 59, 52074 Aachen, Germany, e-mail:

The Right of Cancellation does not apply to distance contracts for the supply of goods produced according to customer specifications or clearly tailored to personal needs.

Effects of cancellation: If the consumer has effectively exercised the Right of Cancellation or returned the good performance received and emoluments taken (i.e. interests) are to be returned. We are entitled to claim compensation for lost value if the performance received as a whole or in parts cannot be returned or can only be returned in a deteriorated or destroyed state. This also applies if the good is put to its intended use. The customer can avoid the obligation to compensate for the decrease in value due to a deterioration resulting from the use in accordance with the intended purpose by not using the good as if it was his property and by avoiding any action that might deteriorate the good. The obligation to compensate for lost value does not apply if the deterioration is exclusively due to examining the good, as for example performed in retail stores. Obligations to compensate must be paid within 30 days. The time limit commences at the dispatch of the good or the declaration of cancellation for the consumer and for us at the receipt of the returned good or the declaration of cancellation.

Return of goods: Goods that are eligible for shipment by parcel are returned at our risk. The consumer has to pay the costs of returning the good if the good delivered corresponds to his order and the value of the good does not exceed the amount of 40 € or if the value of the good exceeds the amount of 40 € and consideration or a contractual accorded installment has not been performed at the time of the declaration of the cancellation. Otherwise the return is free of cost. Goods that cannot be shipped by parcel will be picked up.
