FABULOUS AMIGA QUAINT

How does this all work? (A.k.a = I don’t understand anything)

How does this all work?

 

 

Amigans willing to help the team in his efforts;
sometimes find it confusing on how this all works.

 

 

1 ► A1200Net team runs Crowdfunding Campaigns to create new compatible Amiga parts.

  • The team does not sell any products online. Except for accessories.
  • Crowdfunding campaigns helps the team to create new expensive industrial tools, to produce Amiga parts.
  • New tools are necessary to build new replacement parts for the Amiga Classic line of computers. Original tools have been long scrapped.
  • IndieGoGo or Kickstarter aren’t marketplaces nor online shops.
    • When you pledge on a Crowdfunding campaign you do NOT order a product;  your pledge is a contribution to the project.
    • For campaign purpose the team might use the online shop to offer further pledge options to backers. The item you pledge for on the shop has the mention “Campaign Support” and is not a straight purchase. Contribution made from the online shop are bound to the same campaign it is linked and subject to all its details and aspects.
      Should you disagree with this way of support, do not use online shop to support any crowdfunding campaign.

Can we still support a Kickstarter project after its Campaign is over?

-Yes,
When Kickstarter campaign end, new backers can still support it using the Campaign Support Page.

Please note:
By supporting a project through the Campaign Support Page you agree to the same rules as Kickstarter and you agree to:

  1. You agree that your contribution made on a project item is non refundable. Still you can request if possible under certain circumstances.
  2. You agree that A1200NET is a Team of passionate peoples running Amiga related projects aside their own day job and as such there is no other time of delivery than the one available on the related Kickstarter campaign page – at best!
    However, due to projects heavy industrial nature delays are part of it and they can happen.
    – You’re advised to follow campaign updates on Kickstarter thoroughly as to stay up to date!
  3. You agree that you’re not buying a finished nor currently available product, but merely support the item project.
  4. You agree that you’re supporting & helping A1200NET to build the tools necessary to produce this item.
  5. As Kickstarter states it you understand that you do not directly buy a finished product, but merely contribute to the process of creating it. Risk is always part of any crowdfunding project. Therefore you understand and agree that A1200.NET Team can’t be held responsible for external elements or events that could lead the Team to not being able to produce the item, and even that such events could render the project to a fail. But it’s unlikely to happen 🙂
