Revocation Policy for the Delivery of Goods
Right of Revocation
The Client shall be entitled to revoke the concluded contract within a period of one month without stating reasons. The revocation period of one month commences upon the day when either the Client or a third party, who has been personally named by the Client and who is not the carrier, has taken ownership of the goods. If the Client has ordered several goods within one common order, and the goods are delivered separately, the revocation period of one month commences upon the day when either the Client or a third party, who has been personally named by the Client and who is not the carrier, has taken ownership of the last delivered item. If the Client has ordered an item which is delivered in several partial shipments or pieces, the revocation period of one month commences upon the day when either the Client or a third party, who has been personally named by the Client and who is not the carrier, has taken ownership of the last partial shipment or the last delivered piece. If the Client has ordered goods which shall be delivered regularly over a specified period, the revocation period of one month commences upon the day when either the Client or a third party, who has been personally named by the Client and who is not the carrier, has taken ownership of the first delivered item.
The timely dispatch of the revocation or the goods shall be deemed sufficient for compliance with the revocation term. The revocation shall be directed at:
DICTUM GmbH, Gottlieb-Daimler-Str. 3, 94447 Plattling, Germany
(Phone: +49 (0)9931 4058-902, fax: +49 (0)9931 4058-800, email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Consequences of Revocation
If the Client revokes the contract, he shall be reimbursed all payments including the shipping costs (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from any mode of shipment other than the offered, least expensive mode of standard shipment chosen by the Client) without undue delay and in any event not later than a fortnight after receipt of the revocation notice. The reimbursement shall be effected using the same payment method as was used for the initial transaction, unless other terms have explicitly been stipulated; the Client will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. The Seller may withhold reimbursement until he has received the goods back or until the Client has supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.
The Client shall send back the goods or hand them over without undue delay and in any event not later than a fortnight from the day when the Client has communicated the revocation of the concluded contract. The deadline is met if the Client sends back the goods before the period of 14 days has expired. The Client has to bear the direct cost of returning the goods. Notwithstand-ing the foregoing provision, the Seller shall bear the costs of returning goods which are consign-able by parcel post, if the Client uses the prepaid return shipping label enclosed to return the goods. If the goods cannot be shipped as a parcel, the returning costs shall be estimated corresponding to and not exceeding the initial shipping costs. If the goods cannot be shipped as a parcel, the Seller shall furthermore organize the collection of the goods from the Client's premises if requested by the Client. If the Client exercises this option, the returning costs borne by the Client shall correspond to the initially quoted shipping costs.
The Client is only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
End of Revocation Policy
Exclusion of the Right to Withdrawal
The right of withdrawal does not apply for distance contracts for the delivery of goods that are manufactured according to the Client's specifications or that are clearly adapted to personal requirements, or due to their nature are not suitable for return shipment, or may deteriorate rapidly, or if after shipping their sell-by-date would be exceeded.
The right of withdrawal does not apply for distance contracts for the delivery of audio or video recordings or of software if the delivered data medium has been unsealed by the Client.
The right of withdrawal does not apply for distance contracts for the delivery of newspapers, magazines and illustrations, unless the Client has given the contractual statement by telephone.

5.1 For the shipping of the goods ordered, the following provisions concerning shipping costs described in 5.2 and 5.3 shall apply. Shipping is covered by insurance at all times.

End consumers: For legal transactions between the Seller and end consumers, the performance risk in case of shipping shall be transferred to the Client upon handing over of the goods, or if the Client is in default of acceptance. Companies/Commercial Clients: For legal transactions between the Seller and companies/commercial clients, the shipping of the goods ordered shall be at the Client's own risk.
