If you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, for information, correction, blocking or deletion of data as well as revocation of given consents, please contact:

Cancellation policy Right of cancellation

You may revoke your contractual declaration in writing (e.g. letter, fax, e-mail) within two weeks without stating reasons or by returning the goods. The period begins at the earliest with receipt of these instructions. The revocation period shall be deemed to have been observed if the revocation or the goods are dispatched in good time.

The revocation is to be sent to:

VDMD - Network for Fashion.Textile.Interior.Accessory.Design e.V., Semmelstr. 42, 97070 Würzburg, Germany.

In order to facilitate the return procedure, we kindly ask you to stamp the return sufficiently and to notify us of the return (e.g. by e-mail, fax or telephone).

Consequences of cancellation

In the event of an effective revocation, the services received by both parties must be returned. If you are unable to return the goods received in full or in part, or only in a deteriorated condition, you must compensate us for the loss in value. This does not apply to the surrender of goods if the deterioration of the goods is exclusively due to their inspection - as would have been possible for you in a shop, for example. You can avoid the obligation to pay compensation by not using the goods as if they were your property and by refraining from doing anything that could impair their value. Items that can be sent by parcel post are to be returned. You must bear the costs of the return shipment if the delivered goods correspond to the ordered goods and if the price of the goods to be returned does not exceed an amount of 40 euros or if, in the case of a higher price of the goods, you have not yet provided the consideration or a contractually agreed partial payment at the time of the revocation. Otherwise, the return shipment is free of charge for you. Items that cannot be sent by parcel post will be collected from you. You must fulfil any obligations to refund payments within 30 days of sending your notice of cancellation.

Special notes

Your right of withdrawal expires prematurely if your contractual partner has started to perform the service with your express consent before the end of the withdrawal period or if you have initiated this yourself (e.g. by downloading etc.).
