If we are unable to come to a resolution acceptable to both parties we will accept the return of the microscope (and all accessories) provided it is returned in the original packaging and is in "as new" condition.  Return freight cost at customer's expense.  Once the microscope is received and is confirmed to be in "as new" condition we will provide a refund (in the currency orginally paid) excluding any freight costs.
