These terms and conditions govern the relationship between you and Ticket Groove. There may be additional terms and conditions imposed by the event organiser or venue operator in respect of an event for which you purchase tickets. It is your responsibility to review these terms prior to the purchase of tickets.
Ticket Groove may vary these Terms at any time and will post the variations on this Site. By continuing to use the Site after the varied terms are posted, you agree to be bound by the variation.
Who we are and what we do
1.1. Ticket Groove facilitates the sale of tickets and membership registrations by event organisers by allowing event organisers to create an event page on the Ticket Groove website, or on the event organiser’s own website, from which tickets or registrations can be purchased by you, and giving the event organiser access to a secure payment gateway. As such, except as specified in these Terms, we are not liable for any dispute over an event or a ticket purchase.
1.2. Details of the event organiser can be found on each event page. Each ticket is issued subject to the terms and conditions of the event organiser and/or the venue at which the event is held.
1.3. We have no control over ticket prices, postage or ticket delivery methods.
1.4. You acknowledge that Ticket Groove acts as an agent for the relevant event organiser. Any claims with respect to the purchase of tickets or membership registrations (including cancellation or postponement of events) lie solely with the event organiser and to the extent permitted by law Ticket Groove takes no responsibility or liability for such claims.
1.5. We charge an admin fee, agreed with the event organiser. This admin fee is not refundable.
Purchasing tickets or registrations
2.1. When you make a purchase from this Site you acknowledge and agree that:
2.2. We reserve the right to cancel any ticket and the event organiser will be responsible for any refunds, for the amount paid in full, where there has been an error in ticket pricing, whether due to human error or a transactional malfunction of the Site, and offer to rectify such an error by re-processing the transaction with the correct ticket pricing.
2.3. The event organiser has the right to add or vary the advertised program, seating arrangements and audience capacity and deny admission with reasonable cause including due to intoxication, unsociable behaviour, failing to observe lawful directions, possession of invalid or insufficient tickets or ID or health and safety precautions.
2.4. You are responsible for having your tickets, as purchased through Ticket Groove, available at the event. No refunds or exchanges are provided for lost or stolen tickets or for a failure on your part to present at the event. It is your responsibility to provide correct e-ticket information (email address) to allow adequate time for the delivery of tickets.
3.1. All credit card purchases are processed through our secure online payment system. The event organiser determines how you may pay for tickets and registrations.
3.2. Tickets purchased on the Site or any site using the Ticket Groove platform are subject to a non-refundable per order admin fee which will be included in the ticket price.
3.3. Unless stated to be otherwise, charges referred to for any tickets or registrations supplied via the Site are stated inclusive of VAT.
3.4. All prices are stated in British Pounds.
Cancelled, varied or postponed Events
4.1. The event organiser is surely responsible and liable for providing any refund or comparable ticket where an event is cancelled, varied or postponed. You should check the terms of sale of the Ticket Seller with respect to its policy on cancelled, varied or postponed events.
4.2. So that the event organiser can contact you with information relating to your tickets or the event, we may be required to pass on your contact information. We do not authorise the event organiser to send you any unsolicited emails, mail or “spam”.
4.3. We and the event organiser will use reasonable endeavours to notify ticket holders of a cancellation, variation or postponement; however, the responsibility to ascertain whether an event has been cancelled, varied or postponed is yours. We do not guarantee that the ticket holders will be informed of a cancellation, variation or postponement before the date of the event.
Exchanges and refunds
5.1. All ticket sales are final. For clarification, you are not entitled to a refund if:
5.2. If your ticket is lost, stolen or damaged (including if it is lost in the mail), we are not required to replace it unless we can identify the seat corresponding to the ticket, or in the case of a general admission ticket can identify and cancel the relevant ticket. We may charge a reasonable administration fee in these circumstances.
