And this at any time and without notice (including after the MEMBER has placed an order).

The MEMBER agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless FAUN EVENTS, partners, officers, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers and members, from and against any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of the MEMBER’s breach of these Terms and Conditions of Sale and Use or the documents to which they refer, or the MEMBER’s violation of any law or the rights of a third party.

FAUN EVENTS undertakes to honour all orders for GOODS or SERVICES within the deadlines and will inform the MEMBER in the event of any delay.

However, FAUN EVENTS may refuse an order if it is placed in an abnormal manner or in bad faith or for any other legitimate reason. In particular, when there is a dispute or disagreement with the MEMBER concerning the payment of a previous order.

Within the framework of the purchase of a place for the FAUNTASTIC event, the MEMBER, once the payment has been made by the latter and therefore his participation has been validated (title of PARTICIPANT), will sign a temporary membership to the FAUN EVENTS association by digital means or at the venue of the event for the duration of the latter. This will enable him/her to benefit from all the private advantages of the event.

Certain GOODS or SERVICES may be available exclusively online on FAUNTASTIC’s websites. These GOODS or SERVICES may be available in limited quantities.

FAUN EVENTS reserves the right, but is not obliged, to limit sales of GOODS or SERVICES to any person, and in any geographical region or jurisdiction. FAUN EVENTS may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis.

The MEMBER is informed, in real time, when placing his order, of the availability of the desired GOODS and SERVICES.

In the event of unavailability of all or part of the GOODS or SERVICES desired by the MEMBER in the category indicated, alternative solutions will be proposed to him after having informed him, and subject to the availability of said alternatives in this other category.


Payment by the MEMBER is made on the site either by credit card (according to availability) or by bank transfer to the bank account number communicated by FAUN EVENTS.

To this end, the MEMBER acknowledges and accepts that payment will be made as follows:

By credit card (subject to availability), the full amount must be paid within 15 minutes. If this sum is not paid within 15 minutes, the basket will be reinitialized and the MEMBER will have to restart his selection.
Except for exceptions previously communicated by FAUN EVENTS, in particular for members participating in the organization of the FAUNTASTIC event, the MEMBER pays the total price in a single payment (bank transfer) within 14 days of registration and following the information provided on the site and by official communication from FAUN EVENTS.
No payment made prior to the opening of the REGISTRATION will be taken into account and any amount received in this respect will be returned to the holder.

If the MEMBER fails to make payment within the aforementioned 14-day period, he/she will be notified by e-mail of a brief period of a few days in which to make payment. In the absence of payment within this short period, the MEMBER’s participation will be cancelled and the place will be put back on sale.


Although the law authorizes FAUN EVENTS to refuse all requests for refunds for the provision of “accommodation SERVICES, other than residential accommodation, transport services for GOODS, car rentals, catering or leisure activities that must be provided on a specific date or at a specific time” in accordance with Article L.221-28 of the French Consumer Code, FAUN EVENTS grants a 14-day grace period for requests for retraction following the order.

The right of withdrawal must be exercised no later than 14 days after the order. It gives rise to a refund of all sums paid when ordering as soon as possible and no later than 14 days from the date on which you exercised this right.

A refund will be returned to the MEMBER making the request (see section “refund procedures”).

After this period, no refund will be granted.

This right of retraction can be exercised by sending a message to the following e-mail address

Once the case has been processed, the MEMBER or PARTICIPANT will receive a form to be completed and returned, dated and signed, to the same e-mail address.

This form entitles the PARTICIPANT to reimbursement of amounts already paid within 14 days of receipt of payment.

Any withdrawal request that does not respect the legal deadline or does not provide sufficient information will not be taken into consideration.

The MEMBER or PARTICIPANT acknowledges and accepts that he/she no longer has the right of withdrawal once the legal deadline has passed.

Delivery of physical GOODS only (ordered on the site and sent to the MEMBER’s physical address):

In accordance with articles L.121-21 and L.221-18 of the French Consumer Code, the MEMBER who has placed an order for physical goods has the legal right of withdrawal within 14 days. Any retraction request that does not respect the legal deadline or does not provide sufficient information will not be taken into consideration.
The MEMBER will then have 14 days to return, at his own expense (with parcel tracking number), the goods he has received, from the date of sending his retraction form, and will receive his reimbursement (including initial delivery costs) within the same period.
Refunds will be made by bank transfer to the same payment method used at the time of purchase.

If any information is missing or incomplete, the Treasurer of the FAUN EVENTS Association may contact you directly.

For purchases related to the FAUNTASTIC event, where expenses are incurred with our partners, the MEMBER or PARTICIPANT will be charged 35€ on his reimbursement.

In the event of definitive cancellation of the event, reimbursement of the participation price will only be made to the original purchaser. In addition, requests for reimbursement must, in order to be admissible, be accompanied by an up-to-date bank statement and be made within a maximum of 2 months following the cancellation of the event. Any request that does not meet these conditions will be rejected. Cases of force majeure are reserved.
