12.4 Our Site will guide you through the ordering process. Before submitting your order you will be given the opportunity to review your order.

You must print this out or be able to show this together with any identification required by the Event Host in order to gain admittance to the Event, failure to do so will not entitle You to a refund.
12.6 If You do not receive an Order Confirmation, it is Your responsibility to contact Us whether or not the order has been completed, as only You may be aware of any problems that may occur during the purchase process. We will not be responsible for losses (monetary or otherwise) if you assume that an order was not placed because you failed to receive the Order Confirmation.
13. Changes or Cancellation of Event by Event Host
13.1 If an Event is cancelled by the Event Host (i.e. a cancellation due to circumstances beyond Our control), We will refund You the purchase price of Your ticket(s) less any Payment Service Fee.

13.2 If an Event is moved to an alternative date or venue by the Event Host, Your tickets will remain valid if You still wish to attend the revised Event.

However, there are certain exceptions including the provision of accommodation other than for residential purpose, transport of goods, car rental services, catering or services related to leisure activities if the contract provides for a specific date or period of performance. Since the tickets You purchase for an Event is a cultural activity for a specific date and time, You are unable to cancel or change your mind once You have placed an order on Our Platform subject to Clause 14.2 below.
14.2 However, You will be offered a goodwill right to cancel within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days prior to the start of the Event. If you exercise your right to cancel within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days prior to the start of the Event, We will refund You the purchase price of Your ticket (s) less any Payment Service Fee.
