In case of NO SHOW due to specific restrictions (Covid19 included) no refund will be accorded if the services can be ensured by the company and the company can apply the force majeure.

  • Case of force majeure

The force majeure has two effects for the customer:
- it enables the "force majeure" clause of the contract, which may justify the non-refund of a part or the whole price stipulated in the contract;
- it makes it possible to exempt itself from its contractual liability, for example in the case of damage claimed by the customer due to the failure to perform the service (transportation or accommodation expenses already incurred, for example, in the frame of a participation in an event).
Force majeure must be unpredictable in its causes and insurmountable in its effects as follows.

Unforeseeable cause
If the contract was signed before the date of prohibition of all gatherings, the force majeure clause applies only: if the event is prohibited by a specific decree, or in case of public procurement if the State and the Communities have recognized the epidemic as a case of force majeure.
If the contract was signed after the ban date, the coronavirus outbreak is no longer unpredictable, and it was anticipated that action would be taken in the event of a worsening outbreak. 

Insurmountable effects
If the impediment is not definitive, the company shall plan a postponement, otherwise the appropriate solutions must be implemented. 
In cases of imperative need, the company reserves the right to modify, adapt, postpone services, provided that this does not materially alter the initial contract and being subject to reasonable notice.

Postponement or cancellation
If the postponement is possible, the execution of the contract is suspended until the end of the restriction and is postponed to a specific date. The following procedure shall be adopted:
A new date within a reasonable time
A notification of the postponement sent to the customer, services providers and the contract is therefore suspended until the date planned and payments are kept
A negotiation is engaged with the customer if the postponement does not fit the client and upon its notification by mail, fax, email. 
If the postponement is not possible (cancellation)
The contract is terminated, which means that it is canceled with retroactive effect. 
If services have already been realized or provided or if the realization of the commercial proposal has caused operating expenses, the company may keep a part of the payment received. 

Cancellation terms
In the case of, in the event of force majeure, an event should be canceled, proposals shall be canceled and payments received reimbursed after deduction of the amounts committed. 
In case of cancellation by the customer, whatever the reason, the latter will not be able to claim the deferral of the benefits on another date and will be liable for the following amounts as compensation for termination of contract, less the deposit already paid, which will remain acquired from Farvest:
in case of cancellation up to thirty days inclusive before the first day of the ordered services: 50% of the total price including taxes mentioned in the estimate
