6. ORDER PROCESS
The advertising of products on our website constitutes an “invitation to treat”; and your order for products constitutes a contractual offer.No contract will come into force between you and us unless and until we accept your order in accordance with the procedure detailed below.
In order to enter into a contract to purchase products from us, you will need to take the following steps:
- you must add the product(s) you wish to purchase to your shopping cart, and then proceed to the checkout;
- if you are a new customer, you will need to create an account with us and log in; if you are an existing customer, you must enter your login details;
- once you are logged in, you must confirm your order and your consent to these terms of sale;
- you will be transferred to the payment website of your choice (including but not limited to Adyen and Paypal) and the provider will handle your payment;
- we will then show you an initial acknowledgement; and
- once we have checked whether we are able to meet your order, we will either send you an order confirmation (at which point your order will become a binding contract) or we will confirm that we are unable to meet your order.
We will not file a copy of these terms of sale specifically in relation to your order. We may update the version of these terms of sale on the website from time to time, and we do not guarantee that the version you have agreed to will remain accessible. We therefore recommend that you print and retain a copy of these terms of sale for your records.
The only language in which we provide these terms of sale is English.
Before you place your order, you will have the opportunity of identifying whether you have made any errors by reviewing your order before you click ‘Pay’. You may correct those errors before placing your order by returning to your cart or re-entering your details at Checkout.
7. PURCHASING OUR PRODUCTS
Our product range consists of computer games and software, which can only be downloaded digitally. Fanatical does not sell any physical products on CD-ROM or DVD-ROM discs.
Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements displayed on the relevant product page, before ordering that product.
Certain games on our website can only be purchased if you satisfy the legal age requirement for that product. We are not allowed by law to supply these products to you if you do not satisfy these age requirements. If you are under the prescribed age for the product, please do not attempt to order these products through our website.
Where applicable, upon purchasing a product you will be supplied with one serial key per product, allowing you to unlock and play that product on your computer. In some cases, we may supply you with one serial key to unlock and play several products.
Upon completion of your order, a secure website link to redeem your serial key(s) at fanatical.com will be emailed to you. By following that link and logging in to your Fanatical customer account, you will be able to access your product serial key(s) on your account’s “Order History & Keys” page.
PLEASE NOTE THAT TO INSTALL THE PRODUCT, SERIAL KEYS WILL REQUIRE ACCESS TO THE RELEVANT THIRD PARTY PLATFORM SUCH AS STEAM, UPLAY, ROCKSTAR, ELDER SCROLLS ONLINE, ARC, EPIC, BETHESDA etc.
All products which are purchased via our website and redeemed via third party platforms are subject to licence terms covered by their individual terms of service. By downloading and using a product, you agree to their licence terms.
Exploiting the products for any commercial purpose is strictly prohibited. By purchasing our products, you agree that they are FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL, NON-COMMERCIAL USE ONLY. Our e-commerce platform allows gifting by enabling you to purchase up to 2 serial keys for any one product. We never raise this limit, so please do not contact us to request that the limit is increased.
8. PRICES AND PAYMENT
Prices for products are quoted on our website. While we do our best to ensure accuracy, it is always possible that some of the prices on the website may be incorrect. We will verify prices as part of our sale procedures so that a product's correct price will be stated when you pay for the product.
Fanatical is owned and operated by Focus Multimedia Limited in the United Kingdom, therefore all prices on the website include European value added taxes where applicable. Our website will monitor your device’s IP address in order to detect your geographical location and enable us to display the correct product pricing for your region.
Prices for products are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect contracts which have come into force.
Payment must be made upon the submission of your order. We may withhold the products and/or cancel the contract between us if the price is not received from you in full in cleared funds.
Payment for all products must be made by any method detailed on the website from time to time.
If you dispute any payment made to us you must contact us immediately and provide full details of your claim. If you submit an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back then you will be liable to pay us, within 7 days following the date of the charge-back:
- an amount equal to the amount of the charge-back;
- all third party expenses incurred by us in relation to the charge-back (including charges made by our or your bank or payment processor or card issuer);
- an administration fee of GBP 30 including VAT; and
- all our reasonable costs, losses and expenses incurred in recovering the amounts referred to in this paragraph (including without limitation legal fees and debt collection fees).
Without prejudice to our other rights, if you submit an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back, then we may terminate any contracts between you and us under these terms of sale by giving you written notice of termination.
For the avoidance of doubt, if you fail to recognise or fail to remember the source of an entry on your card statement or other financial statement, and make a charge-back as a result, this will constitute an unjustified charge-back.
