Terms of Sales


These conditions of sale are applicable to all products sold by ScanNav SAS whose head office is in Cestas - France, registered in the Bordeaux Trade and Companies Register under the number 87777183200012 hereinafter referred to as ScanNav. They are applicable in full for all customers in France or abroad, regardless of the place of delivery. No derogation from these general conditions of sale may be accepted without the express prior agreement of ScanNav. Any condition contrary to these general conditions of sale posed by the customer, in its general conditions of purchase or in any other document, will be unenforceable with ScanNav, regardless of when it may have been brought to its attention.

These conditions of sale define the contractual relationship between ScanNav and the customer, whether distributor or end user. If a ScanNav license is sold through a reseller to an end customer, these terms apply to both the reseller and the end customer. Any document other than these general conditions of sale, has only an informative and indicative value, not contractual. ScanNav reserves the right to modify its conditions of sale at any time. In this case, the applicable conditions will be those in force on the date of the order by the end customer.

Characteristics of the products and services

ScanNav is a publisher and distributor of navigation aids software, and nautical charts. The products and services offered are those listed in the catalog published on the scannav.com web-site. These products and services are offered while stocks last.

Software licenses

Software licenses are materialized by an activation code (or product code), specific to each end user. The user undertakes to keep this code for his own use.

The software can be installed on 2 computers. It is possible to change a computer when subscribing to the update.

The purchase of a software license gives access to free technical support for 12 months provided by e-mail, to the following e-mail address: postmaster@scannav.com, or via the online contact form accessible on the ScanNav web-site.

Software updates are free for one year, and entitle you to all versions released less than 12 months after the initial purchase. The user can then continue to use the software as is, or subscribe to an update via the ScanNav order form, in order to benefit from the updates and support for one year.

SnMap Charts

SnMap charts published by ScanNav follow the same rules as software licenses. They are attached to the ScanNav license, or other compatible software (Compagnon, Adrena and SimSail)

SnMap charts updates are free for one year, and at 50% of the initial price the following years.

Navionics Charts

ScanNav distributes Navionics charts on SD or CF for ScanNav users, as well as for plotters and other compatible software.

Navionics charts follow the terms of use of their Navionics editor. Their update is free for one year and at half price the following years, through the purchase of a Navionics Update chart.

Official ENCs

ScanNav distributes Official ENCs for ScanNav users, as well as for other compatible software.
ENCs are sold through a subscription ranging from 3 months to 12 months, during which all updates are included. Beyond the subscription period, the ENCs are no longer considered up to date, and must no longer be used for navigation.
