If you elect to cancel the order, Garmin will reimburse the paid amount within 14 days from the receipt of the communication by which the user informs Garmin about his decision to cancel the order.
Garmin may release discounts or promotional vouchers within promotional campaigns. These cannot be bought and can be used for a limited period of validity, as may be indicated in each promotional voucher or campaign.
Certain Products may be excluded from voucher promotions. The use of promotional voucher may be subject to a minimum amount and in general, to any further restrictions made available by Garmin within the related promotional campaign.

The promotional vouchers will not be reimbursed if you decide to return, partially or totally, the Products ordered.
