THESE TERMS OF SALE (THESE “TERMS”) APPLY TO ALL PRE-ORDERS, OFFERS, SALES AND PURCHASES OF META HEAD MOUNTED DISPLAYS (THE “PRODUCT”) SOLD THROUGH THE META WEBSITES. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO AMEND OR UPDATE THESE TERMS AT ANY TIME BY POSTING SUCH AMENDED OR UPDATED TERMS ON THE META WEBSITE; YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE META WEBSITE OR PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS AFTER THE POSTED CHANGES WILL CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF AND AGREEMENT TO SUCH CHANGES.
YOU MAY NOT ORDER OR OBTAIN PRODUCTS OR SERVICES FROM THIS WEBSITE IF YOU (A) DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, (B) ARE NOT THE OLDER OF (i) AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE OR (ii) LEGAL AGE TO FORM A BINDING CONTRACT WITH META, OR (C) ARE PROHIBITED FROM ACCESSING OR USING THIS WEBSITE OR ANY OF THIS WEBSITE'S CONTENTS, GOODS OR SERVICES BY APPLICABLE LAW.
ONCE CONFIRMED, ALL PURCHASES ARE FINAL, NON-CANCELABLE AND NON-REFUNDABLE, EXCEPT AS SPECIFIED IN THE APPLICABLE CANCELLATION POLICY AND EXCHANGE POLICY SET FORTH BELOW.
3.1 Any prices, quotations and descriptions made or referred to on the Meta Websites with respect to the Product are subject to availability, may be withdrawn or revised at any time at Meta’s sole discretion prior to our express acceptance of your pre-order or order (as described below), and therefore do not constitute a bona fide offer of sale.
3.2 While we make every effort to ensure that items appearing on the Meta Websites are available, we cannot guarantee that all items are in stock, immediately available, or available for distribution or delivery in all parts of the Territory (as defined below) when you submit your pre-order or order. We may reject your pre-order or order (without liability) if we are unable to process or fulfill it for any reason. If this is the case, we will refund any prior payment that you have made for that item if any such payment has been made.
3.3 A pre-order or order submitted by you constitutes an offer by you to Meta to purchase the Product on these Terms and is subject to our subsequent acceptance.
3.4 Our acceptance of your pre-order or order takes effect and a contract of sale is concluded at the point where such offer is expressly accepted by us, evidenced by Meta dispatching your order and accepting your credit card or other payment (“Acceptance“).
3.5 Prior to such acceptance, an automatic e-mail acknowledgement of your order may be generated. Please note that any such automatic acknowledgement does not constitute a formal acceptance of your pre-order or order.
3.6 Your placement of a pre-order does not create a contract for sale for a Product not offered for sale by Meta. By placing a pre-order for a Product that is not yet available for sale, you make an offer to Meta to purchase the Product subject to these Terms. Upon the placement of a pre-order, Meta will obtain an authorization from your bank or payment card company, which will not result in any charge to you. An authorization from your bank or payment card company may stay open for several days or weeks before a charge is actually made upon Meta’s acceptance of your offer to purchase a Meta product. Subject to Section 3.7, you may cancel your offer to purchase the Product at any time prior to shipment, and you will not be charged if you do so. When the Product is offered for sale, Meta may accept your offer to purchase Products subject to these Terms. At that time, Meta will capture payment on the payment method you provided and will subsequently ship your Product. Meta may obtain additional authorization from your payment card company to confirm necessary funds are available to purchase the Products requested.
3.7 Cancellation Policy. After Acceptance, you may not modify or cancel your pre-order or order without our prior written consent; provided, however: (a) we may cancel your order at any time after Acceptance and prior to shipment for any reason in our sole discretion, including but not limited to (i) our inability to process or fulfill the order; (ii) you are in a country where the Product cannot be purchased or shipped; and (iii) your order does not comply with any applicable Terms, and in such event, we will issue you a credit or refund for any amounts already paid; and (b) for any pre-orders of the Product (as specifically identified on the Meta Websites), you are permitted to cancel your pre-order up until such time as the Product has been shipped by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your cancellation request. The foregoing collectively constitutes our “Cancellation Policy”.
4.1 Prices payable for the Product may be indicated on the Meta Websites or, an acknowledgement, but the authoritative price – in the event of any discrepancy – is the price that is notified to you on our Acceptance. We are not responsible for pricing, typographical or other errors in any offer by us, and we reserve the right to cancel any orders arising from such errors.
4.2 We have the right at any time prior to our Acceptance to withdraw any discount and/or to revise prices to take into account increases in costs, including (without limitation) costs of any materials, carriage, labor or the increase or imposition of any tax, duty or other levy and any variation in exchange rates. We also reserve the right to notify you of any mistakes in the Product descriptions or errors in pricing prior to Product dispatch. In such event, if you choose to continue with fulfillment of the order, you acknowledge that the Product will be provided in accordance with such revised description or corrected price. 4.3 The locations to which we deliver the Product are listed on the Meta Websites (“Territory“).
4.4 Unless otherwise specified, prices quoted are exclusive of: (a) the costs of shipping or carriage to the agreed place of delivery within the Territory (charges for which are stated on the Meta Websites); and (b) VAT and any other tax or duty which (where applicable) must be added to the price payable. You agree to pay for taxes, shipping or carriage of the Product as such costs are specified by us on the Meta Websites when you submit your order.
4.6 By submitting an order or pre-order to Meta, you authorize Meta to charge your order to the payment method provided. You represent and warrant that: (i) the payment method information you provide to us is true, correct, and complete, (ii) you are duly authorized to use such payment method for purchase, (iii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your payment method provider, (iv) you will pay the charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including all applicable taxes and shipping costs, if any; and (v) if any details related to your payment method change while you are waiting for our acknowledgment, you will email Meta at email@example.com with the updated payment information. Additional terms and conditions of your payment method provider may apply to your purchase. We will charge the payment method you provided upon Acceptance and prior to shipment of the Product. We reserve the right to verify credit or debit card payments prior to Acceptance. Meta may cancel or suspend your order if the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid, or is otherwise not acceptable. You are responsible for resolving any payment problems.
5.1 Delivery timelines/dates specified on the Meta Websites, in any order acknowledgement, Acceptance or elsewhere are estimates only. While we will endeavor to meet such timelines or dates, we do not undertake, promise or warrant to dispatch the Product by a particular date or dates and will not be liable to you in respect of delays or failure to do so.
5.2 Delivery will be to a valid address within the Territory submitted by you (“Delivery Address”), and subject to Acceptance. You must check the Delivery Address on any acknowledgement or Acceptance we provide and notify us without delay of errors or omissions. We reserve the right to charge you for any extra costs arising from changes you make to the Delivery Address after you submit an order.
5.3 Except to the extent required as a result of any mandatory rights you have as a consumer under applicable law, you will not be entitled to reject the Product in whole or in part by reason of short delivery and will pay in full notwithstanding short delivery or non-delivery unless you notify us in writing of any claim within 5 days of the latest of the date of receipt of the relevant invoice or delivery whereupon you will pay for the quantity actually delivered. Such notifications can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
