Obligations of the consumer in the event of unilateral termination of the contract

(4) If, in the case of an off-premises contract, the goods were delivered to the consumer in his home at the time of the conclusion of the contract, the trader must take over the goods at his own expense if the goods, due to their nature, cannot be returned in the usual manner by post.
