2.8 Use of Multiple Online Ticketing Systems or Use as a Reservation System Only

 

Unless where advance permission has been granted by TGIF Tickets, all Event Organisers must provide the option for tickets to be purchased online through the TGIF Tickets website.

If an Event Organiser is found to be using TGIF Tickets for in-house bookings only and an alternative online payment mechanism or ticketing provider for their online bookings, TGIF Tickets reserve the right to close an account with seven days’ notice if this term is breached.

Similarly, if an Event Organiser uses TGIF Tickets’ online bookings as a reservation system (i.e. zero value tickets) but the tickets have a monetary value and payment of these tickets are sought through alternative payment methods direct to the Event Organiser, TGIF Tickets reserve the right to close the account with seven days’ notice if this term is breached.

3.0 REGISTRATION & ACCOUNT SECURITY

The Event Organiser agrees to maintain and promptly update their Registration details to keep it accurate and current. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or TGIF Tickets has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, TGIF Tickets has the right to suspend or terminate all of your accounts and refuse any and all of your current or future use of TGIF Tickets.

During the TGIF Tickets registration process, a unique account and password will be created. It is the responsibility of the Event Organiser and its Users to maintain the confidentiality of the password and account and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your account, including without limitation, all actions by sub-users registered under your account. The Event Organiser must immediately notify TGIF Tickets of any unauthorised use of your password or account or any breach of security. TGIF Tickets cannot and will not be liable for any loss, damage or other liability arising from your failure to comply with this Section or from any unauthorised access to or use of your account.

If an account has not had any log-in access for two years, or if a new TGIF Tickets account is created but no events are put on sale within six months, it will be considered a dormant account and all data will be cleared.

4.0 PAYMENT PROCESSING

4.1 Overview

There are two types of payment processing options available to Event Organisers when using the TGIF Tickets system:

  • TGIF Tickets payment processing. Credit/debit card bookings processed online via TGIF Tickets merchant services gateway. Income is held in a trust account and will be transferred to the Event Organiser at the conclusion of their event. See section 4.2.
  • Stripe payment processing. Credit/debit card bookings processed online or inhouse via the Event Organiser’s own Stripe merchant services gateway. Income is deposited to the Event Organiser’s bank account less the applicable booking fee and delivery fee, telephone service fee (where applicable). See section 4.3.

4.2 TGIF Tickets payment processing

Event Organisers do not need their own payment gateway to utilise the TGIF Tickets payment processing option. Bookings placed online will be processed by TGIF Tickets and income less applicable fees will be transferred to the Event Organiser within seven days of the conclusion of the event. For booking fees, go to section 5.1.

Event Organisers are not permitted to obtain customer credit/debit card details and process the order themselves via the TGIF Tickets public sales pages (online bookings). Handling customer card details and using the TGIF Tickets Merchant Services for in-house bookings is in breach of these terms and conditions. If an Event Organiser would like to accept credit/debit cards as a payment type for in-house bookings, the Event Organiser will be required to secure their own merchant services or utilise the Stripe payment processing option.

4.2.1 Collection of Monies

You authorise TGIF Tickets to accept Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Maestro cards and to collect the face price of each ticket and also, where you have opted for the booking fee to be billed to the Customer, we will collect a booking fee from each customer and where applicable, a telephone service fee or delivery fees if requested. We will retain the full amount of the booking fee (whether paid for by the Event Organiser or the Customer), telephone service fee and delivery fees.

The proceeds of all credit and debit card sales transacted via TGIF Tickets are paid into a segregated “Client” bank account meaning that they are completely ring-fenced from our own working capital. These arrangements are in line with best practice as specified by all major credit card companies and also by STAR (the Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers) of which TGIF Tickets is a member.

4.2.2 Transfer of Funds

Once the event or event run has concluded, the online sales for that event will then be totalled and prepared for transfer to your bank.  Event Organisers will receive an email the Monday following the event requesting that they confirm their event went ahead by responding to the email. Once verified, your ticket settlement will be processed net of our Fees as stated in 5.1 and any refunds to be made to Customers as a result of cancellation.  TGIF Tickets will undertake ticket settlement transfers on a Monday and Thursday afternoon with ticket monies deposited into your account three working days later.

If any Event or series of Events is cancelled or postponed or significantly changed from the advertised content, TGIF Tickets will refund the customers directly and shall be entitled to utilise sufficient funds from the ticket proceeds referred to above to enable TGIF Tickets to do this. Notification of cancellation may delay the transfer of funds while confirmation and clarification is sought.

All money shall be paid into the bank account specified in your payment details. It is not the responsibility of TGIF Tickets to verify bank details but is the responsibility of the Event Organiser to ensure that accurate bank details are provided. TGIF Tickets will not accept any responsibility if incorrect bank details have been provided by the Event Organiser or their account Users and monies owed are paid into the wrong bank account.

4.2.3 Prior Acquisition of Funds

You, as the Event Organiser, must not withdraw funds from your TGIF Tickets account until the event has been completed. If funds are received prior to an event having been completed, TGIF Tickets will have every right to seek reimbursement for any refunds and administrative charges that may arise if the event were to be cancelled. Where an agreement for reimbursement cannot be reached, TGIF Tickets will be entitled to take legal action against the Event Organiser and the account will be suspended.

4.2.4 Chargebacks

A chargeback occurs when a customer disputes a charge on their credit/debit card with our merchant services provider. When a chargeback occurs the merchant services provider will investigate as to whether the charge is to stand or be refunded to the customer.

TGIF Tickets will provide all requested information and documentation to the merchant services provider during the investigation.  When a chargeback is received, TGIF Tickets has the right to deduct the disputed amount and any fines levied by the merchant services from an Event Organiser’s future ticket settlement.  Should the chargeback be cancelled by the customer or the case won by TGIF Tickets, any amounts withheld from settlements will be returned to the Event Organiser.  Failure by the Event Organiser to pay the chargeback may result in the account being suspended.

Any tickets that are subject to a successful chargeback dispute will be cancelled.

4.3 Stripe payment processing

Event Organisers will collect booking income direct from the customer that is deposited into the Event Organiser’s bank account. When using Stripe payment processing, the Event Organiser agrees to:

  1. set up and manage their own merchant services through Stripe (for information please go to www.stripe.com)
  2. be responsible for the payment of Stripe processing fees.
  3. the deduction of booking fees and ticket delivery fees or telephone box office fees (where applicable) prior to income being transferred to your bank account.
  4. accept responsibility for refunds. Please note that booking fees are only refundable if an event is cancelled or significantly altered and under such circumstances is subject to a £1.00 handling fee per transaction.
  5. notify TGIF Tickets of any event cancellation or significant changes to an event (e.g. change of date, venue, headline act). In this situation, TGIF Tickets will process refunds for customers to ensure the booking is refunded (including booking fee but excluding ticket delivery fees/telephone service fees) and under such circumstances is subject to a £1.00 handling fee per transaction. Booking fees will not be refunded if the cancellation or notification procedure is not followed.
  6. accept responsibility for chargebacks.
  7. accepts responsibility for compliance with PCI DSS standards and data protection and the safe handling of payment cards and confidential information.
  8. indemnify TGIF Tickets against any customer claims relating to refunds, errors or failure to refund, chargebacks or double charges.

For booking fees, see section 5.1.

4.4 VAT Liability

Event Organiser’s remain solely responsible for the accounting and payment of VAT collected through the sale of tickets to HM Revenue and Customs. TGIF Tickets is only liable for the VAT component of the booking fee. At the conclusion of your event, you will be provided with a full income breakdown for your Event/s monies received from online sales which will include details of the Event Organiser’s VAT liability (if applicable).

4.5 Donations and Gift Aid

TGIF Tickets  can collect donations via online bookings and forward payment to the Event Organiser less a 5% administration fee will be deducted from all donations made by credit or debit card using our merchant facility. No admin charge is applicable for payments recorded by cash or cheque.

Should the Event Organiser want to claim Gift Aid, it is the responsibility of the Event Organiser to register for Gift Aid (if eligible) and submit relevant documentation to HMRC to re-claim the tax benefit. TGIF Tickets accepts no responsibility for the administering of the Gift Aid scheme; it is only a platform to receive donations.

Donations are not subject to a booking fee but are subject to a 5% administration fee which is deducted from the donation.

If an event is cancelled, the donation will also be refunded to the customer in full.

We (TGIF Tickets) are not an accounting, taxation or financial adviser, and you should not rely on information given on the website to determine the accounting, tax or financial consequences of making a donation to charity. We strongly recommend that you consult your own adviser(s) about any accounting, taxation or financial consequences that may affect you.

4.6 Sundry Items

Sundry items attract the same booking fee as ticket sales (please see section 5.1). If an event is cancelled, the sundry item will also be refunded in full, including booking fee (but excluding delivery fees).

4.7 Ticket Sales Management

The ticket sales management offered by TGIF Tickets are made available without charge for Event Organisers and their administrative representatives to keep track of all ticket sales whether through TGIF Tickets online or telephone booking services (known as online sales), or direct to the Event Organiser (known as offline sales).

If offline sales are being made from the same block of tickets that have been made available for online sales, it is crucial that the Event Organiser uses the Management Functions of the website to keep records of their offline sales up to date. Otherwise this will result in a discrepancy whereby seats that have already been sold offline will still appear to be available on the sales site and therefore could be sold twice.

TGIF Tickets will not be liable for any such discrepancy or its consequence – it is the responsibility of the Event Organiser to use the Management Functions properly to ensure that double booking is avoided.

The alternative mechanism for Event Organisers is to make available two separate allotments of tickets – one for online sales and one for offline sales.

5 FEES AND CHARGES

5.1 Booking Fees

All tickets purchased online through TGIF Tickets (via internet or telephone Box Office) and card bookings processed in-house if using Stripe payment processing are subject to a booking fee, which is levied in accordance with the booking fee displayed in your TGIF Tickets account.

The fee is applied to cover overheads that we incur with each transaction. We reserve the right to vary this booking fee from time to time.

Event Organisers may elect to have their ticket prices listed on the website either inclusive or exclusive of the TGIF Tickets booking fee. In either case, the fee due will be deducted from the total amount paid by the Customer in respect of any given Event prior to the transfer of funds.

Free events are not charged a booking fee.

Tickets purchased “offline” (i.e. Event Organisers own bookings of cash, cheque, complimentary tickets) are not charged a booking fee.

5.2 Ticket Delivery Fees

Customers will be charged the following fees for the delivery of their tickets:

Delivery Type

Fee Due

Eticket

$0.00

Mobile Phone Ticket

$0.50

Standard Post

$1.75

In situations where the refund policy is applicable, ticket delivery fees are not refundable.

5.3 Telephone Service Fee

If Event Organisers elect to offer their customers the option of using the TGIF Tickets Telephone Box Office service, a Telephone Service Fee of $1.75 will be added to the customer’s booking, in addition to the booking fee. This fee includes the ticket delivery fee whether that be by eticket, mobile or post. There is no charge to the Event Organiser for this service however Event Organisers can choose to absorb the $1.75 Telephone Service Fee upon request.

In situations where the refund policy is applicable, the telephone service fee is not refundable.

  1. EVENT LISTING PROCESSES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

6.1 Through use of the TGIF Tickets website, Event Organisers upload data regarding their organisation, productions, venues, event dates, ticket prices, preferred fee charging mechanism, etc. This data populates the TGIF Tickets sales website from which the customer can then purchase tickets for the listed events.

All details of Events including, but not limited to, performance times, ticket prices and seat availability are entered onto the system by the Event Organiser. The accuracy of all such information is at all times the responsibility of the Event Organiser. Failure to provide accurate event details (including amendments to an event if the date or time changes) will breach this agreement and may lead to the account being suspended and TGIF Tickets will be entitled to seek compensation for any direct costs incurred as a result of incorrect event information listed on TGIF Tickets.

The Event Organiser is responsible for the creation and distribution of automatic discounts and discount codes. The Event Organiser must test their ticket sales to ensure that discount codes and automatic discounts have been set up correctly to provide the correct discount for the applicable event(s), ticket price(s) and validity period. TGIF Tickets will not be held responsible for discount codes or automatic discounts that have been set up incorrectly.

6.2 Copyright Policy

We will terminate the privileges of any user who uses this Site to unlawfully transmit copyrighted material without a license of express content, valid defence or fair use exemption to do so. In particular, users who submit user content to the website, whether articles, images, stories, software of other copyrightable material must ensure that the user content they upload does not infringe the copyrights or other rights of third parties (including, but not limited, to trademark, trade secret, privacy or publicity rights). After proper notification by the copyright holder or its agent to us, and confirmation through court order or admission by the user that they have used this website as an instrument of unlawful infringement, we will terminate the infringing users’ rights to use and / or access to this website. We may, also in our sole discretion, decide to terminate a user’s rights to use or access to the website prior to that time if we believe that an alleged infringement has occurred.

6.3 Event Specific Terms and Conditions

Tickets are issued subject to the TGIF Tickets terms and conditions however each individual Event or Venue may include their own Terms and Conditions (if applicable), including age restrictions, refund and exchange policy, etc. If an Event or Venue has its own Terms and Conditions, they must be included within the booking process and / or be made available at the venue box office to be applicable.

6.4 Pricing Errors

If the amount paid by the Customer for a ticket sold through TGIF Tickets is grossly incorrect, regardless of whether because of an error in a price posted on this website or otherwise communicated to the Customer and regardless of whether caused by transactional malfunction of this website or other TGIF Tickets operated system or by human error on the part of the Event Organiser, then TGIF Tickets will have the right to cancel that ticket (or the order for that ticket) and refund the Customer the amount that they paid.

  1. PURCHASING TICKETS

7.1 TGIF Tickets offers several options for customers to purchase your tickets (fees and charges apply, please refer to 5.1):

  • Online via your unique TGIF Tickets web address which can also be linked to your own event website or Facebook page through a “buy tickets” option.
  • Offline bookings where you can process your own cash, cheque or complimentary tickets through the system.
  • The TGIF Tickets Telephone Box Office Service.

7.2 The purchaser can purchase tickets via the Event Organiser’s unique TGIF Tickets URL or search the TGIF Tickets sales site by Production Company or Amateur Society, Venue, Location, Performance Name or Date to navigate to the specific Event in which they are interested. You may then specify:

  1. The venue section or price category in which they wish to buy seats.
  2. The quantity of seats they wish to buy.
  3. Where relevant, the position of those seats.

The site will then display the payment due for the seats specified. The purchaser will then be asked to select their preferred method of Payment and having entered and submitted Credit or Debit Card details, the TGIF Tickets system will charge the Card Issuer the appropriate amount. On completion of the transaction, the chosen seats will be registered in the purchaser’s name and they will be sent confirmation of purchase.

7.3 Order Confirmation

Order confirmation will take the form of a summary web page at the end of the purchase sequence. This will be followed by an email dispatched to the Customer. Both contain details of the seats purchased and a unique purchase reference number, which acts as the Customer’s proof of payment and may be used by the Event Organiser as an eticket.

If a Customer does not receive a confirmation number (in the form of a confirmation page or email) after submitting payment information, it is their responsibility to confirm with our Customer Service Department whether or not the order has been completed, as only the Customer may be aware of any problems that may occur during the purchase process. TGIF Tickets will not be responsible for losses (monetary or otherwise) if a Customer assumes that an order was not placed because they failed to receive confirmation.

Any ticket-holder unable to present confirmation of purchase in the form of a print out of the email (or web-page equivalent) and valid identification indicating they are the individual named on the confirmation may not be admitted to the event in question, and will not receive a refund.

7.4 Dispatch of Tickets

Tickets can be issued in three different formats:

  • Etickets (emailed to the Customer immediately following the successful purchase of tickets and will need to be printed and presented at the venue).
  • Tickets by text (a unique booking reference and barcode will be sent to the Customer’s mobile phone which must be presented at the venue).
  • Traditional tickets (sent to the Customer by post (time permitting) prior to the event). TGIF Tickets will endeavour to dispatch traditional tickets within 72 hours of the booking. If the tickets have not arrived within five working days of the booking, Customers are advised to contact TGIF Tickets.

Fees may apply to the delivery of tickets. Please refer to point 5.2.

  1. EXCHANGES AND REFUNDS

8.1 The varying exchange and refund policies set forth by our Event Organisers prohibit TGIF Tickets from issuing exchanges or refunds after a booking is placed. If a refund or exchange is requested by a Customer, the Customer is advised to contact the Event Organiser directly to process their request as per the Event or Venue’s own exchange and refund policy.

The booking fee is non-refundable if an Event Organiser processes the refund. The booking fee is only refundable if an event is cancelled or significantly changed (e.g. change of date, venue or headline act) and TGIF Tickets will process these ticket refunds. Event cancellation refunds incur a $1.29 handling fee per transaction.

TGIF Tickets does not permit exchanges for tickets to events staged by different Event Organisers.

8.2 Cancelling an Event

If an Event is cancelled by the Event Organiser (i.e. a cancellation due to circumstances beyond TGIF Tickets’s control), TGIF Tickets will refund the purchase price of a Customer’s tickets including the booking fee, (but excluding any delivery charge, refund protection or telephone service fee); whether that fee was originally presented as a separate item or was included within the stated face value of the ticket. Donations and Sundry Items will also be refunded in full. Event cancellation refunds incur a $1.29 handling fee per transaction.

Where TGIF Tickets has been notified by the Event Organiser of an Event cancellation, we will use best endeavours to contact Customers by email (using the details provided at the time of booking) advising them of the cancellation and initiating the refund process.

TGIF Tickets is normally notified in advance of any pending Event cancellation by the Event Organiser. We then automatically initiate refunds to all tickets purchasers. Customers can also notify TGIF Tickets directly if they discover than an event has been cancelled by emailing info@tgiftickets.com

8.3 Event Postponed or Change of Venue

If an Event is moved from its advertised venue and / or the date is changed, tickets already purchased may remain valid should the Customer wish to attend the revised Event. If not, TGIF Tickets will refund the purchase price of a Customer’s tickets including our booking fee, (but excluding any delivery charge, refund protection or telephone service fees); whether that fee was originally presented as a separate item or was included within the stated face value of the ticket. Refunds effective under this clause incur a $1.29 handling fee per transaction. Customers must contact TGIF Tickets no later than the Monday following the event’s revised date.

8.4 Significant Change to Event Line-up

Should the headline artist not appear or if the line up or content is substantially changed from that advertised at the time of purchase, then TGIF Tickets will on request refund the purchase price of a Customer’s tickets including our booking fee, (but excluding any delivery charge, refund protection or telephone service fees); whether that fee was originally presented as a separate item or was included within the stated face value of the ticket. Refunds effective under this clause incur a $1.29 handling fee per transaction. Customers must contact us as soon as possible and no later than the Monday following the event’s stated date.

8.5 Refunds requested after the Transfer of Funds

Customers are required to contact TGIF Tickets no later than the Monday following the event to request refunds due to a postponed event, change of venue or significant change to event or line-up. Refunds can then be processed prior to the transfer of ticket income to the Event Organiser. TGIF Tickets will not be able to process refunds after the Monday following the event unless the refund is due to an event cancellation that we have retained funds to cover all ticket refunds.

If customers request refunds of their tickets after ticket income has been transferred to the Event Organiser, the responsibility for the refund will lie with the Event Organiser and all enquiries will be directed to the Event Organiser. TGIF Tickets will not be liable for any refunds once the process to transfer ticket income to the Event Organiser has commenced.

  1. REFERRAL SCHEME

The referral scheme provides a cash incentive to Event Organisers to introduce new users to TGIF Tickets. TGIF Tickets will pay the introducing Event Organiser 10% of every booking fee net of any VAT we earn from introduced users. If a ticket is refunded or an event is cancelled, no referral payment will be applicable. The referral payment will be made to the Event Organiser on a quarterly basis for amounts over $10.00. Where a referral payment is less than $10.00, the monies due will accrue until the minimum payment amount is reached.

Event Organisers cannot self-refer (i.e. refer a new TGIF Tickets account where the new account is within the same local organisation or the introducing Event Organiser has an active involvement in the newly signed up organisation). TGIF Tickets reserves the right to cancel a referral if self-referral is suspected.

If a new sign-up fails to add the referral link during the registration process, TGIF Tickets can apply the referral up to seven days from the account being created providing an introduction can be evidenced.
