II. VISIONARIES - ONLINE PRE-BOOKING
19.1. Online pre-booking. By subscribing to the Visionary Package, the User makes a pre-booking request for a FAMEL product not yet officially launched. The online pre-booking does not constitute the purchase of a FAMEL product. The online pre-booking is only the anticipated reservation of a product, before its production and official commercial launch.
19.2. Purpose of the online pre-booking. The sole purpose of the online pre-booking is to ensure priority in the production and availability of the pre-booked specimens and, consequently, to allow FAMEL to estimate and adjust the production of the number of specimens according to demand.
FAMEL refers to information regarding the characteristics of the products through technical descriptions, photographs and videos that illustrate the products that will be commercialized. The product shown may suffer alterations up to the date of its commercialization. FAMEL is not responsible for any changes to the appearance or characteristics of the product that are made available on the website.
21.1. FAMEL may, at its own discretion, update the information on the start date of production and commercialization of the product. The information provided is an estimate with indicative effect only for the Website User. FAMEL does not represent or warrant that the product will be produced and available on the estimated date. Although best efforts are made to do so, the dates given are not binding and are subject to change and postponement.
21.2. FAMEL shall not be liable for any damages due to changes in the indicated dates, nor shall it be obliged to provide any discounts, refunds or credits due to such informative updates. In any case, if, for any reason, the user who made the pre-booking no longer has any interest in continuing to wait for the dates of the effective production or commercialization of the product, the User may always cancel the pre-booking.
The pre-booking does not imply advance payment of the product’s price. Nevertheless, the pre-booking is accompanied by a deposit. The value has the function of guaranteeing priority in the production and availability of the copies that come to be pre-reserved. The information about the amount to be deposited is presented in euros and is merely an estimate. Therefore, any information on the site may change and will always be subject to confirmation by email. The moment in which the pre-booking process is concluded corresponds to the moment of reception of the email confirming the pre-booking subscription. However, failure to pay the aforementioned deposit implies that the pre-booking will not be confirmed.
FAMEL will produce the products seeking to respect the order in which pre-reservations are made. However, reasons related to the production process may dictate changes. In case of cancellation or refusal of pre-booking, the User’s position will be occupied by the next person in the pre-booking list of the product.
The User may, without justifiable reason, cancel the pre-booking request as well as the pre-booking that has been confirmed, up to 6 months after the date of the respective formalization for the effect, by sending an email to email@example.com. In this case the User will be reimbursed 56% of the amount deposited for the pre-booking subscription, if this has already been done.
FAMEL may refuse or suspend pre-booking requests as well as pre-bookings already confirmed in order to control possible oversubscription, for production management reasons or as it deems appropriate. In case of refusal of a pre-booking, the User will be refunded the full amount of the deposit made.
26.1. Once the pre-booking process initiated by the subscription of the Visionary Package is concluded, FAMEL will attempt to maintain communication with the User. Namely, providing information about:
- The time when the product actually starts to be produced (production start date);
- The moment of its availability (date of commercialization and the moment in which the product is considered reserved);
- The order formalization process, instructions on payment of the final price of the product, and other details.
III. FAN - FAMEL MEMBER
The subscription to the FAN – FAMEL MEMBER Package includes the benefits described on the website at the subscription date. Cancellation of the subscription to this Package does not give rise to any refund of the amounts paid.
