Article 7: Right of withdrawal
The provisions of this article apply solely to Customers in their capacity as consumers purchasing articles online from Origins.
If the right of withdrawal is applicable:
The Customer has the right to withdraw from this agreement within a period of 14 calendar days without giving reasons unless the goods are already delivered.
The right of withdrawal ends 14 calendar days after the day on which the Customer or a third party other than the carrier and designated by the Customer acquires material possession of the goods. In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, the Customer needs to inform Origins of his decision to withdraw from the contract, by means of a clear statement (e.g. in writing by post, fax or email). To comply with the withdrawal period, the Customer needs to send the notification of exercise of his withdrawal right before the end of the withdrawal period. The Customer shall return or hand over the goods to Origins immediately, or, in any case, not later than 14 calendar days after the day on which his decision to withdraw from the contract was notified to Origins.
The Customer is on time if he returns the goods before the end of the period of 14 calendar days. The direct costs of returning the goods are charged to the Customer. If there is, in any way, a decrease in the value of the returned product, Origins reserves the right to hold the Customer liable and claim damages for any decrease in value of the goods resulting from the use of the goods by the Customer that goes beyond what is necessary to determine the nature, characteristics and of the goods. Only returns of items that are in their original packaging, together with all accessories, user manuals and an invoice or proof of purchase will be accepted. If the Customer withdraws from the agreement, Origins will reimburse all payments received from the Customer up to that moment, including standard costs of delivery, to the Customer within 14 calendar days after Origins has been informed of the decision of the Customer to withdraw from the contract. In case of sales contracts, Origins may decide to withhold reimbursement until they receive all returned goods, or until the Customer proves that he returned the goods, whichever occurs first. Any additional costs resulting from the Customer’s choice for a method of delivery other than the cheapest standard delivery offered by Origins will not be reimbursed. Origins will reimburse the Customer using the same method of payment the Customer used for the initial transaction, unless the Customer explicitly agreed otherwise; in any case, no costs will be charged to the Customer for such reimbursement.
The Customer is not allowed to exercise the right of withdrawal for:
delivery of newspapers, periodicals or magazines, with the exception of subscription contracts for the delivery of such publications;
