Event tickets
1. You and your party must not re-sell or transfer (or seek to re-sell or transfer) tickets.
2. To prevent fraud and protect the SW AHSN and you, we may carry out checks and/or you may be asked to provide additional information (such as a copy of a credit or debit card statement) after your booking so we can verify your purchase. If we suspect fraud we may cancel any order or tickets.
3. You must inform the SW AHSN of any change of address, contact phone number or email address, both before and after receipt of the tickets. Our contact details are: info@swahsn.com. Our preferred method to contact you is email, so you should take care to provide a current, valid email address and be aware that your email filter settings may treat our emails as spam or direct them to your junk folder.
4. An order paid for via a purchase order is not complete until the purchase order number has been validated and accepted by us. We try to ensure all prices are accurate but errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of tickets you have ordered we will inform you as soon as possible and we may either cancel the order (in which case you will be refunded the ticket price and any booking, transaction or supplementary fees you have paid) or give you the option of confirming your order at the correct price.
5. On rare occasions the event may be filmed or recorded. Buying a ticket affirms your consent to the filming and sound recording of yourself as a member of the audience. If you have any objection, should this happen when you attend a show or event, please alert a member of SW AHSN staff on the day.

Delivery and collection
6. Tickets will be despatched to you electronically via email.
7. If you do not inform us of the non-receipt of tickets within a reasonable time (in any event at least 72 hours before the event) we will have no liability to you.
8. Always check your tickets upon receipt and advise us promptly of any errors. Mistakes when ordering cannot always be corrected and any corrections are discretionary.

Cancellation Rights and Refunds
9. Tickets cannot be transferred, exchanged, or refunded once purchased other than for the reasons set out in these terms and conditions.
10. If the event takes place but you do not receive the tickets you have purchased for any of the following reasons you will be refunded the ticket price you have paid:
The tickets have been sent to an email address different to the one you specified and you tell us within a reasonable period, as set out at paragraph 7 above, or your tickets are not despatched.
11. Duplicate tickets will be issued to replace tickets that have been lost or stolen entirely at the discretion of the SW AHSN.

Cancellation, change or postponement of an event
12. If the SW AHSN cancels an event or makes significant changes to the venue or date, we will try to inform you. This will usually be by email. In urgent cases it may be by phone.
13. If an event is rescheduled, changed or moved, we will give you the option of retaining or exchanging your tickets for the new date/location, or alternatively claiming a refund.

14. Any refund will usually be paid, using the same method you used to buy the tickets, within 30 days of the official cancelation of the event.
15. For more information about refunds, please contact info@swahsn.com
16. No refunds will be offered under any circumstances if you fail to comply with the all terms and conditions applicable to those tickets.

18. Amongst other things you will need to comply with health and safety rules and any security requirements (including security searches for the safety of those attending the event). The SW AHSN and venue will have rights to refuse admission or eject you in certain circumstances.
19. Before you finalise your booking, please read all the information that applies to the event and/or ticket.
