If the fourteen (14) working day period expires on a Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday, it is extended until the first following working day.
9.3. The cancellation period commences on the day after the one on which the Consumer, or a third party designated by the Consumer in advance who is not the carrier, received the product, or:

We may make a deduction from any reimbursement for such loss in value of any Products we supply.
9.8. Insightful Environments will refund the Consumer using the same payment method used for the purchase.
9.9. The risk and burden of proof with respect to the proper exercise of the right of cancellation within the applicable period of time lies with the Consumer.
