Right of Withdrawal:
If the participant is a consumer within the meaning of § 13 of the German Civil Code (BGB), they may withdraw their contract declaration within 14 days without providing any reasons in written form (e.g., letter or email). To exercise this right, the participant may send an email with their name to the following contact details:
