Can I return an article easily?

Right of cancellation

First you have to explicitly exercise your right in written or electronic form (by letter, fax, email, telephone or by returning the goods). For this you can use the model cancellation form, but this is not mandatory. The above-mentioned right of cancellation is open to you for a period of 14 days. The time period commences as soon as you or a third party (designated by you) receive the goods. You have observed the time period allowed if you send your withdrawal or return the goods in a timely manner, that is to say by the end of 14 days. In the event of a withdrawal you must return the goods that you have already received to United Navigation GmbH c/o KOMSA Logistikzentrum, Niederfrohnaer Weg 1, 09232 Hartmannsdorf, Germany without delay and not later than within a period of 14 days. We will bear the cost of returning the goods within Germany.

If you withdraw from the contract, we reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the delivery costs which you payed in your order (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us) within 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the order. In any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods.

Each shipment contains information about your right and the legally required information on distance contracts.

Detailed information about the right of cancellation and on the consequences please refer to § 2 of our terms and conditions.

The simplest and cheapest way to return goods is to use the DHL return label attached to the goods if they were delivered within Germany and post the package at the nearest DHL Packstation, branch or agency. We kindly ask customers returning goods from countries outside Germany to pay the postage. In order to be able to ensure the fastest and simplest possible processing of a return, we need the returned goods to be in a complete a condition (all accessories, manuals, instructions for use etc.) and packed in suitable packing for transportation. Your return can be allocated correctly and with greater speed if you complete and enclose in the package you return to us the return form which was sent with your goods.

Our price offers are calculated with extremely tight margins so we hope you will appreciate that we are unable to pay the costs of transporting return consignments from abroad.  The costs of any transport insurance which you choose to take out cannot be reimbursed under any circumstances.

Once we receive your consignment, we will check the items it contains. We will then refund your purchase price subject to the restrictions which are listed below:

We wish to point out expressly that you will have to pay compensation for lost value that is caused by the handling of the goods other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods. You will certainly understand that goods which have already been used cannot be sold to other customers. There is no obligation for compensation for lost value in the case of unused goods which are sealed in their original packaging.

The right of cancellation does not apply to distance selling

  • For the supply of audio or video recordings or computer software in a sealed package if the delivered data carriers have been unsealed by the consumer.
  • For digital content (download products) if the customer has explicitly agreed that the execution of the contract can start, before the end of the cancellation period is reached. And if the customer is aware and has agreed that by this consent, and upon start of execution of the contract, he will lose the right of cancellation for digital content (download products).
  • For contractors within the meaning of § 14 of the German Civil Code who have acted upon their professional activities when concluding the contract. 

We give a 24 month guarantee on all new goods we supply. Please contact our Service & Support Team
