If you wish to make a change to your order, please contact us within two (2) days of your order. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will inform you about any changes to the Fee, the timing of the Event(s) or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.

6.1 The Fee payable for the Event(s) (which includes GST) will be the fee set out on the Order Form.
6.2 It is always possible that, despite Our best efforts, some of the Events we book may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Event’s correct price at your order date is higher than the correct price, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your Order Form where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may, without prejudice to our other rights under law, terminate the Agreement and refund you any sums you have paid.

If we fail to comply with our obligations under these Terms and Conditions, We are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaching of this Agreement or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the Agreement was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
6.7 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Services including the right to receive Services which are as described and supplied with reasonable skill and care. However, in any instance, our aggregate liability to you arising from any Event shall not exceed the portion of the Fee which you have already paid for said Event.
6.8 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the Services for your use as a consumer. If you use the Services for any commercial or business purpose, we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
