6.4. In the event of withdrawal, we must reimburse the customer all payments we have received, including delivery costs, immediately and no later than 14 days from the day on which we received notification of withdrawal from the contract. For this repayment we use the same payment method that the customer used in the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise; under no circumstances will we charge the customer any fees for this repayment.
