  4. Even after the identification of the customer has been carried out, we reserve the right to restrict further transactions in case of conspicuous usage activities.
  5. Instavouch vouchers expire 3 years after issue at the end of the calendar year. Furthermore they cannot be transferred to other accounts or paid out in cash.

  1. The customer assures and warrants that all data provided by him are true and complete.

Scope of Revocation right

Excluded from the right of revocation is the conclusion of a contract in which you have expressly agreed to the following agreement: 'I expressly agree to the execution of the contract before the expiry of the revocation period. I am aware that my right of revocation expires at the start of execution of the contract.'
The following information on the right of withdrawal is therefore limited to the conclusion of contracts for the purchase of physical gift vouchers.

Right of revocation of the customer

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 last good.

To exercise your right of revocation, you must provide us your name, address and, if available, telephone number and email address in a clear statement (for example, a letter sent by post or email) about your decision to revoke from the contract. You can use the attached standard cancellation form, but it is not required.

To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.

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. If a part of the purchase amount has been cleared with the account balance, it will automatically be credited to your account. It cannot be paid out to any other payment method. This amount cannot be paid out to any other payment method. Under no circumstances will you be charged for the reimbursement.

You must return or hand over the goods to us without delay and in any case within fourteen days at the latest from the day on which you inform us of the cancellation of this contract. This period shall be deemed to have been observed if you dispatch the goods before the expiry of the fourteen-day period. You shall bear the direct costs of returning the goods.

You shall only be liable for any loss of value of the goods if this loss of value is due to handling of the goods which is not necessary for testing the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
