Right of return and return notice
If you are a consumer, i.e. a natural person, who purchases an item for a purpose that cannot be attributed to your commercial business activity or your self-employed occupation, you have the right of retention that is set out below. This does not apply to goods that have been specially made for you according to your individual specifications.
You may return the received goods within 14 days, without having to give reasons, by sending the goods back to us. This limitation period shall commence upon receipt of this notice in writing (e.g. letter, fax or email) but not before receipt of the goods by the recipient (in the case of recurring deliveries of similar goods, not before receipt of the first partial delivery) and not before the performance of our legal obligation to inform and our other legal obligations. Only where the goods in question cannot be sent by mail (e.g. bulky goods) are you entitled to also demand that they be taken back by submitting a request in writing. The timely sending of the goods or of the request for the goods to be taken back shall be deemed sufficient for observing the limitation period. In all cases, the goods will be returned at our expense and risk. The request for the goods to be taken back must be sent to:
Letter: Gstaad Palace Royal Hotel Winter & Gstaad Palace AG, c/o Ernst Scherz, Hotel Palace, CH-3780 Gstaad, Switzerland, Email: email@example.com
Consequences of return
In the event of a valid return, the mutually received services shall be returned, along with any benefits derived therefrom. You are obliged to compensate us for the respective value in the case of deteriorated goods and for any benefits (e.g. benefits of use) that cannot be returned either in full, partially or only in deteriorated condition. You are only required to compensate us for the deterioration of the goods or for derived benefits if the derived benefits and the deterioration can be attributed to using the goods in a way that goes beyond the mere examination of their fitness for purpose and their characteristics. “Examination of their fitness for purpose and their characteristics” means the testing and utilisation of the respective goods to the extent that would be customary and possible in a shop. The duty to refund any payments must be performed within thirty days. The limitation period shall commence for you upon sending the goods or the request for the goods to be taken back; for us, it shall commence upon receipt thereof.
