If you can not give us back the received performance in whole or in part or only in a deteriorated condition, you may have to pay us compensation for the value.
This does not apply to the surrender of goods if the deterioration of the item can only be attributed to its examination - as it would have been possible for you in a shop, for example.
Incidentally, you can avoid the obligation to pay compensation by not using the item as your property and refraining from anything that affects its value. Transportable items are to be sent back.
