Event Tickets Terms and Conditions

 

Thank you for your interest in participating in an event either hosted, sponsored, or participated in by Blue Grass Garden Centres. Before you proceed to purchase or obtain tickets, we strongly recommend you go through the following event ticketing terms and conditions:

In this section, words like ‘holder’, ‘bearer’, and ‘purchaser’ will refer to you – the person who will buy the tickets to an event either hosted, sponsored, or participated in by Blue Grass Garden Centres. On the other hand, ‘our’, ‘us’, ‘we’, ‘issuer’, ‘provider’, and similar terms will indicate the organizers of such events including Blue Grass Garden Centres.

By opting to purchase, allocate, or possess tickets to an event either hosted, sponsored, or participated in by Blue Grass Garden Centres, you automatically agree to our terms of use. If you have problems with any of the clauses listed below or do not agree with the risk allocations mentioned here, please do not purchase tickets or try to enter the event venue or premises.

Please note that Blue Grass Garden Centres reserves the right to make changes, revisions, and amendments, or add/remove sections from this set of terms and conditions – without any prior notifications to you. Such changes will be duly reflected on the website of the organizer. These changes will relate back to the date of purchase of event tickets purchased through Blue Grass Garden Centres.

The price of one event ticket is listed on each individual event page. This figure is non-negotiable.

The ticket you purchase represents a revocable license for you to access the location listed on the event page only on the corresponding event date when the event is scheduled to be hosted. The license includes the revocable right to attend the event. This license can be revoked at any time by the issuer at its sole discretion, without any prior notifications or compensation options. If the license is revoked, you will not be granted entry to the venue.

The bearer has to assume full responsibility for the event tickets, once (s)he receives it. Blue Grass and its affiliates have no liabilities – financial, legal, or otherwise – in case the delivered tickets are stolen, lost, damaged, destroyed, or rendered unusable in any other way.

Kindly note that bluegrassnursery.com is the sole authorized source for purchasing Blue Grass event tickets. If you obtain your ticket(s) from any other unauthorized source, you take on the risk of those tickets turning out to be counterfeit or reported to be stolen. The issuer has the right to dishonour such stolen/counterfeit tickets and declares them void.

The event tickets delivered to you are not meant to be used for illegal reselling, copying, reproducing, or misrepresenting in any form. You cannot use the ticket(s) for any promotional/advertising purposes either (including sweepstakes and competitions) without our prior approval. Any proven record of such activities will result in immediate seizure and cancellation of your ticket(s).

Please note that event tickets cannot be redeemed against cash, credits, or any other benefits.

Blue Grass has the right to investigate if there has been any violation of the Event Ticket terms and conditions. In case of any conflicts, the decision of Blue Grass will be deemed final (i.e., the issuer will remain the final arbiter in cases of disputes).

The event service will be deemed to have been delivered in its entirety as soon as the event starts on the date publicized. From that point on, no refund requests will be entertained. If you are not able to access any particular section(s) of the event venue due to delays, Government regulations and bylaws, organizer policies, weather-related problems, emergencies, venue shutdown/evacuation, or any other reason, you will not be eligible for any refunds or future credits.

If the event is canceled in its entirety due to any unforeseen circumstances, Blue Grass has the sole and absolute right to:

i) reschedule the event, or
ii) issue a partial/full refund, or
iii) not issue any refunds.

*** Please note that the decision of the issuer in such cases will be deemed final and binding.

If the event is canceled due to any factors or causes not in the control of the issuer, the latter will offer a partial or full refund, postpone the event, or provide a comparable ‘make good’ option. These factors will be inclusive of, but not limited to, natural disasters, Government announcements, strikes, delays in production, and the like. Once again, the decision of Blue Grass will be considered final.

If the event has to be rescheduled to another date, you will not be eligible for any refunds. In case the event is fully canceled, the refund, if issued, will include ONLY the face value/printed value of the ticket(s). The bearer cannot, under any circumstances, claim refunds on shipping fees, processing fees, handling fees, and such other charges.

Losses, if any, occurring due to foreign exchange fluctuations at the time of refunds, have to be borne by the purchaser. Blue Grass cannot be, in any way, held liable for that.

All ticket sales are deemed as FINAL TRANSACTIONS. There will be no ticket returns/exchanges/cancellations unless at the sole discretion of Blue Grass Garden Centres.

Each event is a ‘rain or shine’ event. By purchasing the event tickets, you automatically confirm that you/the attendee(s) are of the ‘minimum age’ or older, at the time of buying the ticket(s) or have the consent of your parent or legal guardian to attend.

If it is proven beyond doubt at the venue that an attendee is below the ‘minimum age’ to consent on their own and is without the consent of their parent or legal guardian, (s)he will not be granted entry to the event. No refunds, full or partial, will be issued either.

At the time of entering the event venue, you are required to produce the ticket and maybe asked to present a valid identification document (ID). By presenting an ID, you confirm that all details present on it are accurate and updated.

By purchasing event tickets and presenting the same at the venue, you give your consent to Blue Grass to collect certain information about yourself (name, picture, date of birth, gender, address, etc.) for verification and storage.

You hereby agree to forego all types of surcharge claims – full or in part – and all claims & entitlements related to it.

Blue Grass does not take any responsibility for personal/financial damages caused to you at the venue or for any items lost/stolen/misplaced at the venue. Financial reimbursement claims on these counts will not be entertained.

Any event organized, hosted, or sponsored by Blue Grass follows a common ‘zero-tolerance policy’ towards unauthorized drug usage or carrying at the venue, AND towards any type of behaviour/actions that can be interpreted as lewd or obscene. If you are found in possession of prohibited items at an event and/or if you indulge in any objectionable action, your participation in the event will be terminated immediately. Your event ticket(s) will become void from that point on.

Please note that you purchase event tickets of your own free will. As such, you do not have the right to initiate a chargeback claim or dispute on the provider of the credit card/debit card that had been used for the transaction. Further refund/return/cancellation requests will not be entertained either.

In all cases of disputes between the ticket-bearer and the ticket-issuer, the decision of the latter will be deemed final. In case a dispute cannot be resolved, the help of an independent third-party arbiter will be sought.
