The orders Golden Delicious Computers (GDC) has received have to
be "rolled back". Since the "roll back" voids your agreement with GDC,
all those who sent 100 EUR or more get a refund. The amount refunded
will be your original payment minus about 13% for work done in the project
so far (see below for details). If your transfer was in a foreign currency, there
can be additional differences due to exchange rate variations.
The refund goes either directly back to your credit card (if you used one to
pay) or if you have used SEPA/IBAN bank transfer, please provide your
account data where we should send the money to. Please note that we do
the refund in EUR, so the resulting amount depends on the exchange rate
of your local currency.
Here are the details how we have calculated the refund amount.
GDC has spent (incl. VAT) so far for this project:
Payments below 100 EUR are not refundable. They make a total of
exactly 1000 EUR from 50 persons. This means that the remaining
expenses of 9898.77 EUR are to be equitably shared by the customers
with payments of 100 EUR or more, who donated 75 045 EUR in total.
Therefore, 13.2% of the total amount has been already spent.
This amount (13.2%) will be subtracted from what you have originally
paid and is equivalent to your contribution to bring the project to
the status it currently has (thanks!). This includes that we make the
EAGLE design files open source (under CC BY-SA) so that anyone can
