3.1 Through the Tiqets channels, Tiqets provides a platform through which Events can be advertised, and through which End Users can purchase tickets for such Events. Tiqets only acts as an intermediary in the formation of an agreement between the End User and the Third Party Ticket Provider and Tiqets is in no respect party to that agreement.
3.2 Before payment of the Tickets by the End User, Tiqets shall state the total Order amount to be paid by the End User consisting of the Admission Costs and - in some cases - a Booking Fee. The Booking Fee covers all other costs such as service costs and/or handling costs charged by Third Party Ticket Provider or Organiser and payment costs charged by payment service providers.
3.3 Upon successful completion of the payment of the Admission Cost and all other costs by the End User and delivery of the Tickets to the End User by Tiqets, the Third Party Ticket Provider or the Organiser, the Agreement between Tiqets and End User is concluded.
3.4 In case no authorisation for the End User’s payment is received, Tiqets will notify the End User that the transaction has failed and, consequently, no Agreement will be and/or has been concluded.
3.5 Tiqets is entitled to modify or cancel the Order of the End User within 48 hours after completion of payment in the event that Tiqets is unable to provide the End User with the actual tickets.

3.8 The Ticket allows the End User to access the Event. The Ticket is only valid on the date and time indicated on the Ticket, unless otherwise stated on the Ticket. For some Events the Ticket may be valid on other days than the date indicated on the Ticket but will never be valid on dates later than 14 days after the date indicated on the Ticket. End Users can contact Tiqets Customer Service to find out whether their purchased Ticket might be valid on other dates than the date indicated on the Ticket.
3.9 Cancellation policy: Tiqets is not obliged to take back or exchange Tickets once payment has been concluded, nor to provide the End User with a refund. The End User should contact Tiqets Customer Service to cancel their tickets and request a refund. When refund is possible, the restrictions that apply are stated on the product page and in the ticket delivery email sent by Tiqets to the End User. The End User must contact Tiqets Customer Service before the stated time restriction; all tickets without a visit time stated begin at midnight on the visit date. When Tiqets agrees to a cancellation with refund, Tiqets will charge the End User a cancellation fee equal to 8% of the total order value.
