2. Right to revocation

You have the right to revoke this contact within 14 days without stating a reason.
The revocation deadline consists of 14 days from the day on which you or a third party named by you, which is not the transporter, has taken receipt of the goods. However, the deadline does not begin before the purchase contract has become binding for you by means of your approval of the purchased item.
In order to exercise your right to revocation, you are required to notify us (the skylark EU, Customer Service, Marchettigasse 14, A-1060 Vienna, telephone : (+43) 1 219 7445 55, fax: (+43) 1 817 4955 3702, e-mail: customerservice@theskylark.biz) by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail) concerning your decision to revoke this contract.

 3. Notice regarding right to revocation

To safeguard compliance with the deadline for the right to revocation, it is sufficient for you to dispatch the notification regarding the exercise of the right to revocation before the right-to-revocation deadline expires (14 days). 

Consequences of revocation

If you revoke this contract, we are required to reimburse to you all payments that we have received from you, including the delivery costs (with the exception of any additional costs resulting from you choosing a different type of delivery than the other, lowest-price standard delivery offered by us), immediately and no later than within 14 days from the day on which the notification of your revocation of this contract is received by us. For this repayment we use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless another arrangement was explicitly agreed with you; in no instance will costs be charged to you with regard to this repayment. We are entitled to decline to make the repayment until we have received the goods back or until you have provided the proof that you have sent back the goods, depending on which of the two is the earlier point in time.
You are required to send back the goods to us immediately and in all instances no later than seven days from the day on which you notify us regarding the revocation of this contract. In instances in which goods can be sent in parcel form, the deadline is deemed to have been complied with if you dispatch the goods before the seven-day deadline expires.
You are required to bear the costs for the return of the goods and must reimburse any loss of value of the goods incurred, if this loss of value is attributable to the goods being handled in a way that is not necessary for the purpose of checking the condition, characteristics and functional operation of the goods.

 4. Exclusion / expiry of the right to revocation

No right to revocation exists in the case of contracts for the supply of goods for the manufacture of which an individual selection or individual determination made by the consumer is decisive, or for goods unequivocally tailored to the consumer's personal requirements; this right of revocation ends prematurely in the case of contracts for the supply of sealed goods that are not suitable for return, for reasons either of hygiene or of protection of health; neither does this right of revocation exist with regard to computer software supplied in a sealed package if the product's seal was removed after delivery.
