You agree to:

You must not:

  • remove, alter or hide any of the content on the CET or O-tix Website or any Listing Content;

  1. The O-tix platform role

CET’s O-tix platform provides a payment and ticketing service to Event Organisers. It does not organise or sell tickets for events.  Your contract for access to Your Events is with the Event Organiser and is governed by any terms and conditions the Event Organiser has included in or linked to its Event Listings.  It is your responsibility to read these terms before registering for an event or purchasing tickets to an event. CET acts as the Event Organiser’s agent in collecting payment from and delivering electronic tickets to you.

Event Listings may be hosted by CET or by the Event Organiser on its own website, which is linked to the CET Website by a secure iframe. Event Organisers’ websites are not part of the CET Platform.


 

  1. Provision of Tickets

You may pay for tickets with a Visa, Mastercard or where available, an American Express Credit Card..

Tickets are provided electronically by email or SMS to the email address or mobile phone number provided by you during registration or when purchasing tickets. All tickets issued by the CET O-tix Platform are secured with an encrypted key, and contain a visible QR code and Ticket ID, and can only be validated if they can be scanned correctly at the event venue. You may present either a printed or digital ticket at the event venue, provided the QR code and Ticket ID are clearly visible. Ticket holders may not be permitted entry into the event if the ticket cannot be scanned and validated. In addition to producing a valid ticket, Event Organisers may require you to show evidence of identity, or the card used to make payment.


 

  1. Claims in relation to Events

Complaints and claims in relation to Your Events should be directed to the Event Organiser.  To the extent permitted by law, CET excludes all claims and liabilities relating to Your Events other than:

  • claims relating to the payment and ticketing services provided by CET; and
  • claims for refunds for cancelled events in accordance with paragraph 10.

  1. Refunds

CET does not give refunds or exchange tickets other than in accordance with paragraph 10. If you print your ticket, and it is lost or stolen, it may be used by a third party to gain access to the event. If this occurs, you will not be able to obtain access to the event.  Your Event Organiser may be willing to cancel the ticket and issue a new one, but CET is not able to do so.


 

  1. Cancelled Events

It is the responsibility of the Event Organiser, not CET O-tix, to advise you if Your Event is cancelled.  You should immediately contact the Event Organiser to request a refund.  If the Event Organiser has not either refunded your payment in full (including any booking fee) or provided an alternative remedy acceptable to you (such as tickets to a rescheduled or other event) within five business days of the cancellation, you should notify CET within ten business days of the cancellation.  Unless the Event Organiser provides us with evidence that it has made the refund or you have accepted the alternative remedy, CET will refund your payment in full (including any booking fee) by the means used to pay for the tickets.


 

  1. Process for Claiming a Refund for Cancelled Events

Send an email to the Event Organiser with the subject line “Refund Request”. Event Organiser contact information is available on each event page. If you are unable to contact the Event Organiser, please email support@o-tix.com

You should include the following information in your email:

  • transaction reference number;
  • ticket ID;
  • your name;
  • your email address;
  • your contact phone number;
  • that the event has been cancelled.

If you have purchased tickets for an event that requires registration of each individual attendee, you should include the ticket ID and names of each additional attendee for whom a refund is requested.

To claim a refund from CET O-tix under paragraph 9, forward your email to the Event Organiser to support@o-tix.com , and state that you have not received a refund or other remedy from the Event Organiser.
