4. AVAILABILITY, SUBSTITUTIONS, CANCELLATION AND RENEWAL
AULART aims to guarantee the availability of all products that are advertised through www.aulart.com:
– Masterclasses are always available, unless purchased in “Pre-order” mode in which case you will have access to the content on the date indicated on the website at the time of purchase.
– Bootcamps are available on the dates indicated at the time of purchase. However, they may be limited to a maximum capacity (which will in any case be less than 130 students and will be made available at the discretion of the trainers at each Bootcamp) of between 20 and 72 students. It is not possible to buy a Bootcamp that has already started and it will not be possible to buy the next Bootcamp until a new Bootcamp is opened.
However, in the event that a Bootcamp is canceled before the start date, for reasons attributable to the organization or unforeseen circumstances related to the trainer, the client will be informed by email as soon as possible and will be offered another of similar content and cost, if it has been scheduled by the organization or if it cannot be offered or if it is rejected by the client, the amount paid will be refunded through the same means by which the payment was made within a maximum period of 60 days.
Benefits available on our website will have limited availability according to the amount set by the brand in question, or due to the partnership between the brand and Aulart coming to an end. Products will hence be available while supplies last. In no circumstance is the purchaser of the membership entitled to claim or request compensation from Aulart if a plugin, software, sample pack or deal is no longer available.
If AULART is unjustifiably delayed in refunding the amounts paid, the consumer may claim double the amount owed.
– The Essentials and Connect Plans are available on the platform from the time of purchase as they contain pre-recorded material. Subscription to a Plan is annual and automatically renewable for successive annual periods unless canceled by the customer seven days prior to the expiry date (12 months from the date of purchase). To cancel the subscription, the customer must do so through their Aulart account.
Customers who have subscribed to the Connect Plan may choose to pay the annual subscription in twelve installments. The payment by installments does not entitle the user to cancel the subscription before the annual expiry date, unless he/she is in the exceptional case of application of the cancellation procedure set out for the Plans in section 9. The annual subscription implies a commitment to pay the full 12 installments. Failure to pay one of the installments will result in the suspension of access until payment is regularized and will in no case imply the cancellation of the subscription.
If payment is not regularized and the outstanding fees continue to be owed until the subscription expires, AULART will proceed to cancel the access and to initiate the relevant legal actions to claim the amount owed until the annual cost of the subscription has been paid in full.
