Batteries and long life batteries
Owners of electronic devices must remove all batteries and long life batteries, so long as these are removable, from the device before disposal. This does not apply if disposing the electronic waste at a public waste management organization that will, for the purpose of recycling, separate these from the electronic devices. Batteries containing harmful substances are marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol and one of the following chemical symbols:
Pb: the battery contains lead
Cd: the battery contains cadmium
Hg: the battery contains mercury
Ways of returning old devices.
The crossed-out wheeled bin symbol means that this electrical or electronic device must not be disposed of as domestic waste at the end of its service life.
There are free collection points for used electrical devices in your area as well as other points for collecting the devices for re-use. You can get the addresses from your city or local government. If the old electrical or electronic device contains personal data, you are responsible for deleting it yourself before you return it. You can find more information at https://www.elektrogesetz.de/.

RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL

Right of withdrawal
You have the right to withdraw from this contract within 14 days without giving any reason.
The withdrawal period will expire after 14 days from the day, on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the goods.

Effects of withdrawal
If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.
