8. PROVISION APPLICABLE ONLY TO CONSUMERS
The following provisions applies only to buyers who are Consumers. “Consumers” means “natural persons, except merchants who obtain our Products or Services for the purposes of their business”.

The distance contract for the sale of Products or Services between Vosker and a Consumer will be evidenced in writing; a copy of it will be sent to the Consumer within fifteen (15) days after it is entered into, in a manner that ensures that the Consumer may easily retain it and print it, and will indicate:
- the Consumer’s name and address;
- the date the contract is entered into; and
- the information described in section 7.1.1. above (Contents of Purchase Orders), as disclosed before the contract was entered into.
The Consumer may cancel the contract within seven (7) days after receiving a copy if:
- Vosker did not disclose to the Consumer the information described in section 7.1.1. above (Contents of Purchase Orders) before the contract was entered into, or did not disclose it in accordance with that section;
- Vosker did not provide the Consumer with an express opportunity, before the contract was entered into, to accept or decline the proposal or to correct any errors; or
- The contract does not meet the requirements of section 8.1. above (Distance contract);
However, the cancellation period begins when Vosker’s performance of the principal obligation is completed if the Consumer, at that time, observes that Vosker has not disclosed all the information described in section 7.1.1 above (Contents of Purchase Orders). If Vosker does not send a copy of the contract to the Consumer within the time provided for in section 8.1. above (Distance contract), the Consumer has thirty (30) days, as of the date the contract is entered into, to cancel the contract.
The Consumer’s right to cancel the contract is exercised by sending a notice to that effect to Vosker. The contract is cancelled by operation of law as of the sending of the cancellation notice. Within fifteen (15) days following the cancellation of the contract, Vosker must refund all sums paid by the Consumer under the contract. Within fifteen (15) days following the cancellation of the contract or following delivery if it postdates cancellation, the Consumer must restore the Products that were the object of the contract to Vosker in the same state in which they were received. Vosker shall assume the reasonable costs of restitution.
A distance contract may also be cancelled by the Consumer at any time before performance of Vosker’s principal obligation if Vosker’s principal obligation is not performed within thirty (30) days after the date specified in the contract or the later date agreed on in writing by the Consumer and Vosker, or within thirty (30) days after the contract is entered into in the case of a contract that does not specify a date or time limit for Vosker’s principal obligation to be performed.
If Vosker defaults on the obligation to make a refund and the Consumer has paid by credit card, the Consumer may, within sixty (60) days following the default, request the card issuer to chargeback all amounts paid under the contract and any accessory contract, and to cancel all charges made to the Consumer’s account in relation to those contracts. A chargeback request must be in writing and contain the following information:

You may, within thirty (30) days after the purchase of a Product, request an exchange for another Product of the same value, or a higher value by paying the difference in price. In the event that you opt for a lower value Product, Vosker will not refund the difference between the higher initial price and the purchase price of the new Product.
