9. Limits on Tickets purchases Per Customer
When purchasing tickets on The Ticket Group, you are limited to a maximum number of tickets per transaction.

This limitation has been designed to prevent unfair buying practices at popular events and make sure everyone gets a fair chance of attending the event.
10. Pricing and Ticket Availability
a) The Ticket Group sells tickets and Non-Ticket Items on behalf of Event Organisers and other third parties which means The Ticket Group does not determine the ticket prices, booking fees, postage and handling fees (if posted tickets are an option) or the seating selections.
b) Ticket inventory is the responsibility of the Event Organiser. Given inventory is set by the Event Organiser, popular events may sell out quickly. Occasionally, additional tickets may be available in addition to inventory using The Ticket Group set by the Event Organiser, however the Event Organiser controls this inventory and its availability.
11. Credit card purchases and proof of identity
a) In most cases when you purchase your tickets using a credit card, in order to collect your tickets, you will be required to present the credit card used to purchase tickets and a picture identification, which must match each other and must match the name under which the booking was made.
b) All purchases are charged to your credit card at the time of purchase, not at the time of entry to the event.

13. Delivery of tickets
Through The Ticket Group platform the Event Organiser may elect to offer one or more of the following delivery options for your ticket order. The proof of identity requirements set out in clauses 11 and 12 will apply regardless of the delivery of ticket method used.

II. With mobile phone bookings charges will be made to the credit card stored on your moshfile and it is your responsibility to ensure these credit card details are accurate and updated.
II. Do not set your quick purchase settings or purchase tickets with your parents or another person’s credit card unless you have their permission or have completed a credit card authorisation form - as you will not be let into the event - even with a valid ticket.
14. Cancelled Events
a) Occasionally, events are cancelled or postponed by the Event Organiser due to weather conditions or situations affecting the staff, audience or artist. When this occurs, the Event Organiser will make every effort to ensure you receive a prompt refund and/or exchange if applicable.
b) If an event is cancelled or postponed, refunds will be determined by the Event Organiser . To find out about the refund availability and process:

You will be asked to sign for your refund. If you are genuinely unable to return to the store for a refund, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org providing details of the event and point of purchase and any other information as reasonably required to allow The Ticket Group to arrange a refund. Note that any refunds conducted through this method will take significantly longer than refunds conducted through the retail outlet.

IV. The Ticket Group takes no responsibility for tickets not purchased through The Ticket Group platform including web pages, call centre, outlets and authorised retailers.
