1.1 These general terms and conditions for reservation of Candela C-8 DC Edition (these “Terms”) shall apply between Candela Speed Boat AB, Reg. No. 556985-3285, a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of Sweden (“Candela”), and any customer (a “Customer”) when the Customer participates in Candela’s pro-gram for reserving the opportunity to order a Candela C-8 DC Edition (the “Program”) when the Candela C-8 DC Edition (the “Boat”) is available for order.
1.2 Unless otherwise stated under these Terms, these Terms shall apply irrespective of whether the Customer is a consumer, i.e. a natural person who is acting for purposes outside its trade, business, craft or profession (a “Consumer”) or a natural person or legal entity, irrespective of whether privately or publicly owned, who is acting for purposes relating to its trade, business, craft or profession (a “Trader”).
1.3 These Terms shall in no event be construed as to exclude and/or limit Candela’s liability that cannot be limited and/or excluded under mandatory consumer protection laws and in the event of a conflict between these Terms and such applicable mandatory consumer protection laws, the mandatory consumer protection laws shall al-ways prevail.
2.1 Participation in the Program gives the Customer the opportunity to place an order for the Boat when it is available for order from Candela. The internal priority among Customers will be determined by the Customer’s respective enrollment date in the Program. Enrollment is made by filling out a digital form which is found on Cande-la’s website.
2.2 Customers must be 18 years old and accept these Terms to enroll in the Program. In this respect, the Customer explicitly confirms to Candela that the Customer is authorized to enroll in the Program. If the Customer is a Trader the Customer explicitly confirms to Cande-la that the relevant person that enrolls in the Program is authorized to represent the Trader and enroll in the Program for the Trader’s account.
2.3 Enrollment in the Program is subject to the payment of the Reservation Fee (see Section 3). Following the Customer’s payment of the Reservation Fee, Candela will send the Customer a reservation confirmation by e-mail which includes all relevant information regarding the reservation and the Program, including but not limited to these Terms. Candela encourages the Customer to save the reservation confirmation for any future contacts with Candela regarding the reservation.
2.4 Candela reserves the right to decline new enrollments to the Program at its reasonable discretion. Candela shall also be entitled to immediately revoke a Customer’s enrollment in the Program in the event the Customer has breached its obligations under these Terms. In the event Candela has declined or revoked a Customer’s enrollment in the Program, the Customer will be notified thereof in writing and the Reservation Fee already paid to Candela by the Customer will be refunded to the Customer applying the principles set out in Section 5.3 below.
3.1 Participation in the Program requires the Customer to pay a reservation fee of EUR 1,000 (including VAT, where applicable) (the “Reservation Fee”). The payment of the Reservation Fee will be made via the external service provider Stripe and the Customer will have the option to choose from different payment methods for the payment of the Reservation Fee. The payment of the Reservation Fee is subject to Stripe’s terms and conditions (which are found here.
3.2 For the avoidance of doubt, the Reservation Fee is not a deposit and/or partial prepayment of the Boat. The Reservation Fee will be refunded to the Customer applying the terms set out in Section 5.3 when the Customer has entered into the Purchase Agreement (as defined below).
ORDER OF THE BOAT
4.1 When the Boat is available for sale from Candela, the Customer will be contacted by Candela and the Customer will be given the option to purchase the Boat. The purchase of the Boat will be subject to separate terms under a purchase agreement between Candela and the Customer (the “Purchase Agreement”). If the Customer would choose not to place an order for the Boat, Candela will refund the Reservation Fee to the Customer by applying the principles under Section 5.3 below.
4.2 For the avoidance of doubt, these Terms neither constitute whole or part of the Purchase Agreement. Participation in the Program does not constitute a purchase of the Boat or create any rights or obligations for Candela or the Customer with respect to the price, the date of delivery, warranties, specifications, and/or other contractual terms and conditions with respect to the purchase of the Boat.
RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
5.1 The Customer may withdraw from the Program at any time and receive a full refund of the Reservation Fee up until the Customer has entered into the Purchase Agreement (the “Right of Withdrawal”). To exercise the Right of Withdrawal, the Customer shall inform Candela thereof in writing, using the contact information set out in Section 12.
5.2 For this purpose the foregoing, Customers may also use the model withdrawal form provided by the Swedish Consumer Agency (which is found here) and attached hereto as Schedule 1. The completed form shall be sent to Candela’s address set out under Section 12. For the avoidance of doubt, it is not obligatory to use the model withdrawal form provided by the Swedish Consumer Agency when exercising the Right of Withdrawal under these Terms.
5.3 When the Customer has exercised its Right of Withdrawal, the Reservation Fee will be fully refunded to the Customer no later than 14 days from the date of Candela’s receipt of the Customer’s request to exercise the Right of Withdrawal. The Reservation Fee will be refunded by using the same means of payment that the Customer has used to make the Reservation Fee. Candela will not accept a request from the Customer to refund the Reservation Fee to a third party. The Customer is not entitled to interest on the Reservation Fee from Candela.
