These refunds will be made using the same payment method used by the Consumer for the initial transaction, unless the Consumer requests reimbursement on different means of payment, in which case any additional costs arising from the different means of payment will be charged to the Consumer. The reimbursement may be suspended until the goods are received or until the Consumer demonstrates of having sent back the goods, if done earlier.
10.6 The Consumer is responsible for the decrease in the value of the goods resulting from a handling other than that necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
