The statement on unilateral termination of the contract is considered timely, if it is sent within the mentioned deadline or if the product is returned to GA&KO within the same deadline. In the case of a distance selling contract, the period of 14 days is calculated from the day when the product reaches the consumer. In the case of a service contract (distance), the deadline starts from the moment of concluding the contract.
If the consumer has decided to terminate the contract, he is obliged to send a statement on the unilateral termination of the contract in writing, which includes the electronic form.
