We will contact you to tell you we are cancelling your Event booking. We will not cancel the Events where you dispute the unpaid invoice (see clause 12.6). 
  3. Your rights to end the contract
    1. You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
      1. If what you have bought is misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 11;
      2. If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;
      3. If you have just changed your mind about the Events, see clause 8.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions;
      4. In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 8.6.
    2. Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any Events which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
      1. we have told you about an upcoming change to the Events or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 6.2);
      2. we have told you about an error in the price or description of the Events you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
      3. there is a risk that supply of the Events may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
      4. we have suspended supply of the Events for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons; or
      5. you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
    3. Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most services bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
    4. When you don’t have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
      1. services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running.
    5. How long do I have to change my mind? How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
      1. Have you bought services (for example, an Event ticket) If so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
    6. Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. 

The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for Events not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.

Summary of your key legal rights

This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.

If an Event is services, for example tickets to a track day, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says:

a) You can ask us to repeat or fix a service if it’s not carried out with reasonable care and skill, or get some money back if we can’t fix it.

b) If you haven’t agreed a price beforehand, what you’re asked to pay must be reasonable.

c) If you haven’t agreed a time beforehand, it must be carried out within a reasonable time.

See also Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013).

  1. Price and payment
    1. Where to find the price for the Events. The price of the Events (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the Events advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Events you order.
    2. We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the Events, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Events in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
    3. What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Events we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Events’ correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Events’ correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract and refund you any sums you have paid.
    4. When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment by credit or debit card. You must pay for Events at the time the booking is made. 
    5. We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
    6. What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
  2. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
    1. We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
    2. We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Events;
    3. We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the Events for domestic and private use. If you use the Events for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
  3. How we may use your personal information

How we may use your personal information. We will only use your personal information as set out in our [LINK TO PRIVACY POLICY].

  1. Other important terms
    1. We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation.
    2. You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. 
    3. Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
    4. If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
    5. Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Events, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
    6. Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Events in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Events in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Events in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
