The Platform’s purpose is to allow private ticket holders to offer their Tickets and/or Other Products for sale and provide private Buyers to purchase those Tickets and/or Other Products, up to an amount not exceeding their face value, whilst simultaneously enabling:
the cancellation of the purchase of the original Ticket and/or Other Product between the Seller and the Organiser, via the Provider,
the conclusion of a contract of sale between the Buyer and the Organiser
In particular, the Platform allows Users to:
search for and purchase a Ticket and/or Other Product offered for resale by Sellers,
set up email alerts for the search criteria of their choice in order to be notified of any available Tickets and/or Other Products.
publish an advertisement for the resale of a Ticket and/or Other Product,
be reimbursed directly by the Provider of the original Ticket and/or Other Product once the buyer’s order has been confirmed.
Provider does not sell Tickets and/or Other Products. Provider acts as a host for advertisements. The sales contracts entered into through the Platform are therefore concluded directly between the Buyer and the Organiser. Provider cannot under any circumstances be considered as a Ticket Seller and cannot accept any liability in this respect.
The Platform may carry out technical maintenance at any time in order to improve the performance of the services.
Provider cannot be held liable for direct or indirect damages, losses or costs, resulting from the use of the Platform, or the impossibility to use it, or from a malfunction, an interruption due to handling, a technical failure of the server hosting the Platform or related to an interruption of Internet access or for any other cause, a virus, or a line or system problem.
The Platform does not guarantee permanent access to its services, particularly during maintenance operations.
Provider cannot be held liable for, in particular:
the content of advertisements placed on the Platform by the Seller;
the fact that the Seller is not the rightful owner of the Ticket and/or Other Product advertised;
the non-completion of a sale;
defects in the hardware of the Users;
unforeseen and insurmountable circumstances of a third party to the contract.
All Users must be at least 18 years of age or must use the Platform under the responsibility of an adult, and must be acting in a non-professional capacity.
Before they can publish an advertisement, all new Users must complete a registration form requiring certain essential information. The Seller's email address must be verified before he/she can make use of the advertisement publication service. Any registration associated with an incomplete form or a form containing erroneous and/or false information is liable to be cancelled without compensation or notice by Provider. Moreover, the owner of such an account may be prevented from publishing advertisements or accessing services reserved for registered Users.
Following registration, the User has the right to access, amend and delete data concerning him/her, as detailed in the Personal Data Protection Policy.
Users who wish to be alerted when a particular advertisement is posted can set up an email alert at no extra cost.
The fact that a User has set up an email alert on the Platform and possibly received an alert for an advertisement corresponding to his/her search criteria does not grant him/her any preferential right to purchase the Ticket and/or Other Product to which the alert relates. In particular, the Platform cannot guarantee the actual availability of the Ticket and/or Other Product when the user logs in to consult the listing for which the alert was issued. In any case, the Platform does not agree to alert the User within a minimum period. Given the technical nature of the Internet and mobile networks, the Provider cannot guarantee that the alerts sent will successfully reach the User.
The Seller may use the technical solution put in place by the Platform to offer a Ticket and/or Other Product for resale by advertisement, on an occasional basis and without making it his/her main activity, or to provide proof, at the request of Provider, of having obtained the prior consent of the Organiser of the event in question.
Only the buyer of the original Ticket and/or Other Product, who is the owner of the email address used for said purchase, may resell the Ticket and/or Other Product.
not to sell the same Ticket and/or Other Product simultaneously to several buyers,
not to go to the event themselves by presenting the sold Ticket, which will have been automatically invalidated, to the Ticket inspection desk,
not to advertise or sell Tickets and/or Other Products that are unauthorised for resale that have been for example falsified, misappropriated or stolen,
to immediately delete their advertisement in the event that the Ticket and/or Other Product is unavailable, for example due to being resold through another channel.
A published advertisement cannot be modified and can only be deleted provided that the Ticket and/or Other Product is not in a Buyer's basket. Sellers that wish to amend their advertisement must delete it and create it again.
All Sellers must declare, certify and guarantee that they comply with all legal obligations, including contractual obligations, which are applicable to them, and in particular that their use of the Platform does not infringe any legal or regulatory provision or any contractual stipulation. The Seller will remain solely liable for all violations concerning one of his/her legal or contractual obligations.
Users that wish to purchase a Ticket and/or Other Product from a Seller must click the “Add to basket” button located in the Ticket and/or Other Product resale listing.

Before confirming their shopping basket, Users must check its content, paying particular attention to the date on which the Ticket and/or Other Product is to be used.
By placing an order, the Buyer has entered into a direct contractual relationship with the Organiser. The Buyer therefore undertakes to read and accept, by ticking the corresponding checkbox, the Organiser’s Terms and Conditions of Sale.

Please be reminded that the contract of sale of the Ticket and/or Other Product is concluded directly between the Buyer and the Organiser.
As soon as the Buyer has paid for the items in his/her basket, Provider will send a purchase notification to the Ticket and/or Other Product Seller via email.
