C. Terms and Conditions – Listing and Selling Tickets

  • CREATING A LISTING

    • Listing Responsibility of Seller: By creating a Listing using the Universe Services, Sellers are offering to sell or distribute, for the Sale Price, where applicable, Ticket(s) for Buyers to attend an Event. It is the Seller’s responsibility to make any Event or Ticket restrictions clear to the Buyer and the Seller is solely responsible for all the Listings that they post on the Website. Any changes to Listings, Events and Tickets must be made clear to Users and Buyers as soon as possible.
    • Listing Representation: A Listing is a legal representation made by the Seller about the details relevant to the Ticket and Event, and their accuracy.
    • Service Charge Preference: The Seller shall elect whether the Service Charge shall be paid by the Buyer, in addition to the Sale Price, or included in the Sale Price and paid by the Seller.
    • Listing Description: The Seller must provide all the Event information in the Listing, including:
      • the location of the Event;
      • the name of the Event and performer(s) (if relevant);
      • the date of the Event;
      • the name and address of the Venue;
      • the type of Ticket (e.g. seated, standing, timed entry, etc.);
      • the Sale Price of each Ticket;
      • whether or not the Service Charge is included in the Sale Price or not;
      • whether or not a portion of the Sale Price will be donated to a particular cause or charity and the relevant associated details;

      • any other significant information relating to the Event and/or Ticket(s) that may reasonably affect a Buyer’s decision about whether to purchase or apply for a Ticket or not, including any information required by law. In Ontario and any other jurisdiction where required by law, this must include a description of any other distribution methods or sales channels for the Tickets to the Event that you will make available for sale, including any sale that will occur before tickets are made available for sale to the general public (e.g. pre-sales).
    • Compliance: When creating a Listing, the Seller must comply with all applicable laws and regulations and the terms of this Agreement. If you are a Seller trading as a business, you must identify yourself as such by using a business Account. Sellers trading as a business are responsible for complying with all applicable laws and regulations in relation to their obligations as a “trader”. Universe assumes no responsibility for a Seller’s compliance with applicable laws, rules or regulations.
    • Seller Warranties: The Seller represents and warrants to and for the benefit of Universe, that any Listings that he/she creates:
      • relate only to Tickets and Events over which that Seller has control, either directly or indirectly, and for which the Seller is permitted to sell or distribute Tickets, and that the Seller is in possession of the Tickets at the time of the Listing;
      • include accurate and transparent Ticket prices and information relating to all additional charges which will be incurred by Buyers;
      • if booked, will be honoured, unless otherwise agreed with the Buyer;

      • cannot be construed to be associated with any terrorist organisations; and
      • do not contain political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings or any form of “spam”.
    • VAT: The Seller is responsible for ensuring that the Sale Price includes all taxes required on Listings, including VAT. If in doubt, the Seller should seek the advice of a tax expert to determine which taxes need to be collected from the Buyer.
    • Insurance: The Seller is solely responsible for any insurance that may be required in relation to the Listing and the Event.
    • Event Cancellation or Alteration: If an Event is cancelled, re-scheduled or amended in any way, this must be dealt with by the Seller and communicated clearly to Buyers. The Listing must be updated or removed by the Seller and if it is not, we reserve the right to remove the Listing from the Universe Services.
    • No Universe Guarantee: Universe does not guarantee that Listings made via the Universe Services will be published and active within a certain time of the Seller posting a Listing or that it will appear in a particular order in search results or that the Ticket(s) will sell. If a Ticket does not sell, Universe accepts no responsibility.
  • SALE OF TICKETS

    • Payment Processing Preferences: There are two Payment Processing Methods, Universe Payments and Stripe Payments, which Sellers can select when creating a Listing, further details of which can be found at Payment Processing Preferences. Once the Payment Processing Method has been selected by the Seller for a Listing, it can be changed at any time; however, any funds from existing Ticket sales will continue to be paid out via the Payment Processing Method set at the time of sale.
    • Approval Settings: Sellers may set a Listing so that Seller approval is required for a Buyer to complete a Transaction. Such Listings must specify the timeframe within which approval or rejection of the Transaction must be provided by the Seller. If the Seller neither confirms nor rejects the Transaction within this time, it will be automatically cancelled.
    • Sale Contract and Order Confirmation: Following Seller approval, if required, when a Buyer completes the sales process by entering their payment details and clicking on “pay now” for paid for Events or “register” for free Events, the parties shall become contractually bound to one another to complete the Transaction. An Order Confirmation will be generated and sent to the Buyer once the Buyer completed the payment process.
    • Failed Delivery: Order Confirmations are automatically generated following the Buyer’s completion of the payment process. Any notification of a failed delivery that the Seller receives from a Buyer must be dealt with by the Seller as soon as possible and, in any event, in advance of the date of the relevant Event.
    • Disputed Events: If a Buyer disputes any element of an Event or a Transaction Value, such dispute shall be between the Buyer and the Seller, and Universe shall have no involvement.
  • UNIVERSE PAYMENTS

    • Universe Payments: Universe Payments is the default payment option which is available to Sellers.
    • Payment to Sellers: Provided that the Event has taken place, and no dispute has arisen in connection with the Transaction, Universe shall pay the proceeds due to the Seller from the Transaction using the payment method selected by the Seller approximately 48 hours after the end of the Event. Universe reserves the right to cancel Transactions and issue refunds to Buyers where, in its reasonable opinion, a Buyer is legally entitled to a refund for any reason, in which case no payment shall become due to the Seller.
    • Payment Details: Sellers are responsible for providing Universe with accurate bank account information associated with their Account and keeping this up to date at all times.
    • Account Balance: Sellers will be notified by email once funds are available for withdrawal. Universe shall remit the withdrawal request to the Seller within a commercially reasonable time of such request.
    • Payments: In some circumstances, payment shall only be made if the amount due to the Seller totals at least £10 or its international equivalent (“Threshold Amount”)). Unpaid amounts of less than the Threshold Amount will be carried over indefinitely until the amount accrued is the Threshold Amount or above. If Sellers wish to have their balance remitted in a given month in which the amount due to them is less than the Threshold Amount, the Seller should contact Universe at support@universe.com with such request.
    • Withholding Payment: Universe reserves the right to withhold payment to a Seller or charge back to the Seller’s account any amounts otherwise due to Universe under this Agreement, or any amounts due as a result of a breach of this Agreement, pending Universe’s reasonable investigation of such breach, in its sole discretion. Universe reserves the right to freeze any payments due to Sellers for up to 6 months if it, in its sole discretion, believes that charges may be disputed by Buyers or the Seller, Event, Listing and/or Tickets appear to be fraudulent.
    • Disputed Payments: If a Seller disputes any payment made or owed by Universe, the Seller must notify Universe in writing within 30 days of any such payment being paid or becoming due. Failure to notify Universe within the required time frame shall result in a waiver by the Seller of any claim relating to any such disputed payment.
    • Refunds: If a Seller grants a Buyer a refund but has insufficient funds in their Universe account to cover the refund amount, the Seller’s account will go into the negative and Universe shall pursue the Seller for all monies owed. The Seller will be charged the Service Charge, which shall be retained by Universe.
  • STRIPE PAYMENTS

    • Stripe Payments: By setting up a Stripe Connect account via the Stripe website, Sellers can integrate their Account with Stripe to process payments for their Events using their own merchant account.
    • Payments: Immediately upon a Transaction being completed by the Buyer, the total value of the Sale Price(s) (or the Sale Price(s) less the Service Charge(s), if the Seller opts to pay these) will be paid directly into the Seller’s Stripe account and the Service Charge shall be paid to Universe.
    • Refunds: In the event that a Buyer requests a refund of the Transaction Value, this shall be granted at the sole discretion of the Seller. Universe may initiate a refund request on behalf of a Buyer but is under no obligation to do so.
  • PAYMENTS

    • Applicable Taxes: Sellers agree to pay all applicable taxes or charges imposed by any government entity in connection with their Listings and associated Transactions.
    • Chargebacks: Any credit card chargebacks or other transaction reversals initiated against Universe or its affiliates for any reason (except to the extent they are caused solely by Universe’s negligence or wilful misconduct) with respect to a Seller’s Listing and all related credit card association, payment processing and other fees and expenses incurred by Universe or its affiliates in connection with such chargebacks shall ultimately be the responsibility of the Seller and the Seller agrees to promptly and fully reimburse Universe for such amounts on demand. Universe reserves the right to withhold at least 10% of a Seller’s proceeds, in its sole discretion, to cover the cost of any such chargebacks that may arise.
    • Cancellation and Refunds: The cancellation and refund policy for a Ticket is at the Seller’s discretion and will be set out in the Listing description. If no such policy is set out by the Seller, Buyers may cancel a booking and receive a refund of the Sale Price, if requested 24 hours or more before the start time of the Event.
  • USE AND COLLECTION OF DATA BY SELLERS

    • Universe Account Information: The Seller may be given access to Buyers’ Universe Account Information where necessary to fulfil Tickets. Universe does not provide any warranties as to the accuracy, relevance or fitness for any particular purpose in relation to the Universe Account Information. The Seller is the Data Controller (as defined in EU Data Protection Legislation) in respect of the Universe Account Information of Buyers, from the point at which it is passed and/or made available to the Seller and the Seller must comply with Data Protection Legislation when processing Universe Account Information of Buyers. Where Universe Account Information of Buyers is made available, it is confidential and must only be disclosed to authorised persons using appropriate security measures. The Seller must keep Buyers’ Universe Account Information secure and must take reasonable steps to protect it from misuse, loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
    • Buyer User Data: The Seller is the Data Controller of all Buyer User Data and must comply with Data Protection Legislation when processing Buyer User Data including, but not limited to, providing Buyers with information about how their data will be used, and collecting appropriate permission from Buyers for any uses made of their User Data. The Seller must keep Buyer User Data secure and must take reasonable steps to protect it from misuse, loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Universe has no control over or input into Buyer User Data, nor does it have responsibility for or ownership of any Buyer User Data collected and solely acts as a processor in relation to the same. Notwithstanding this, Universe will take appropriate measures to protect Buyer User Data, when held within the Universe Services, from loss, misuse and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Buyer User Data. Universe will only process Buyer User Data on the instructions of the Seller.
    • Prohibited Data Classes: Sellers must not use the Universe Services to collect the following types of data: payment card or bank details, details of racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, details of religious beliefs, trade union membership details, physical or mental health information, details of sexual life, details of the commission or alleged commission of any offence, and personal data of or other information relating to children under the age of 13.

D. Terms and Conditions – Buying Tickets

  • PRICE AND PAYMENT

    • Sale Price: The Seller sets the Sale Price of the Ticket and can change the Sale Price at any time prior to a Transaction taking place.
    • Fees/Charges: When a Buyer selects one or more Tickets for purchase, any additional charges and/or fees associated with the Ticket and Transaction shall be made clear by the Seller, which shall include:
      • the Sale Price;
      • the Service Charge (if applicable); and
      • any other charges included by the Seller.
    • Check Your Order: As a Buyer you must ensure that you have read the full Listing details and are happy with your Ticket selection prior to purchase. Universe will not rectify any issues that arise and Sellers will only do so in their sole discretion.
    • Payment Information: The Buyer warrants and represents that s/he is authorised to use the selected payment method and that the billing information provided is complete, up to date and accurate.
    • Approval Settings: Some Listings may require the Seller’s approval prior to the Buyer being able to purchase Tickets. Such Listings shall specify the timeframes within which approval must be given by the Seller. If no approval is granted within such timeframes, your order will be cancelled and payment will not be taken.
    • Order Confirmation: Upon Buyers completing their purchase, by entering their payment details, where necessary, and clicking “pay now” for paid for Events or “register” for free Events, an Order Confirmation shall automatically be issued to the Buyer, which is the point at which the Buyer and Seller enter into a binding agreement. The Order Confirmation will contain the Ticket with which the Buyer will be able to attend the Event. If the Order Confirmation is not received, it can be retrieved from the Account dashboard, along with the Ticket.
    • Payment: Once the Buyer receives the Order Confirmation, depending on which Payment Processing Method the Seller has selected, the Buyer agrees that Universe or a third party payment processor, acting on behalf of the Seller, may debit or authorise the amount of the Transaction Value from the method of payment provided by the Buyer. If applicable, the Service Charge is non-refundable and, unless otherwise agreed by the Seller, no refunds or credits will be provided once the Buyer has been charged.
    • Other Ticket Terms and Conditions: All Tickets purchased by the Buyer are subject to the Ticket, Event and Venue terms and conditions, and all applicable laws and regulations.
    • After-Sales Queries: If the Buyer has any questions or concerns following the purchase of a Ticket, the Buyer should contact the Seller directly and should not contact or attempt to contact Universe.
    • Donations: Sellers may pledge to donate a portion of the Sale Price to a particular cause or charity. Universe does not control or accept any responsibility or liability for any donations pledged by the Seller. Universe does not investigate or otherwise ensure the factual accuracy of any donation claims made by Sellers in Listings.
    • Foreign Currency: Universe provides a feature through which Users may view fees for various Listings in foreign currencies. Sale Prices listed in foreign currencies are for informational purposes only. You understand and agree that any such foreign currencies are not the official Sale Price and at the time you request a booking you will be notified of the currency in which you will be charged together with the corresponding Transaction Value. The value is payable in the currency specified at the time of checkout.
  • CANCELLATION AND REFUNDS

    • Cancellation: The cancellation and refund policy for a Ticket is at the Seller’s discretion and will be set out in the Listing description. If no such policy is set out by the Seller, Buyers may cancel a booking and receive a refund of the Sale Price, if requested 24 hours or more before the start time of the Event.
    • Refunds: If a Buyer cancels a booking within the timeframe set out by the Seller, if any, the Buyer may be refunded the Sale Price for such booking within a commercially reasonable amount of time, typically one week after a refund is agreed upon. Service Charges, if applicable to the Buyer, are non-refundable.
    • Refund via Universe Payments: If a Seller grants a Buyer a refund and Universe Payments has been selected by the Seller, Universe will refund the Sale Price paid by the Buyer for such booking within a commercially reasonable amount of time, typically one week after a refund is agreed upon.
    • Refund via Stripe Payments: If a Seller grants a Buyer a refund and Stripe Payments has been selected by the Seller, the Buyer shall be refunded directly by the Seller. The Seller and the Buyer must arrange such a refund between themselves and Universe shall have no responsibility or liability for any such refunds.
    • Disputes: If a Seller fails to fulfil its obligations in relation to a Transaction, subject to the refund options a Seller has set out in the Listing, Buyers will have 48 hours from the start time of the Event to request a refund. If a Buyer requests a refund within this timeframe, Universe will promptly notify the Seller. The Seller will have 48 hours to rebut such dispute, resulting in one of two scenarios: (i) if the Seller does not rebut such dispute, a full refund of the Sale Price will be given to the Buyer by the Seller; or (ii) if the Seller does rebut such dispute, the two parties must contact one another to resolve the dispute and submit the confirmation of the resolution to Universe within 30 days. If no confirmation of resolution is received by Universe within 30 days, Universe will resolve the dispute in its sole and absolute discretion, which may include a decision to refund the Buyer and pursue the Seller for the refunded amount. It is the Seller’s responsibility to provide proof that a Buyer was in attendance at an Event.
  • ENFORCEMENT ACTION AGAINST BUYERS

    • Cancelling Transactions: Universe reserves the right to cancel a Buyer’s Transaction in any of the following circumstances if:
      • Universe suspects any fraudulent, illegal or unethical activity relating to one or more Transactions; and/or
      • Universe suspects any unauthorised use of a Buyer’s Account and/or of the Universe Services; and/or

  • LIABILITY

    • Universe shall use reasonable endeavours to consult or negotiate in good faith and attempt to reach a just and equitable settlement that is satisfactory to you and Universe.
    • In the unlikely event that we are able to resolve your complaint by negotiation within 28 days, we may attempt to settle a matter via mediation. To initiate a mediation a party must give written notice to the other party to the dispute requesting a mediation. The mediation shall be conducted in accordance with the STAR Code of Practice and Dispute Resolution Procedure current at the date of the referral which sets out the procedures to be adopted, the process of selection of the mediator and the costs involved and which terms are deemed incorporated into this agreement.
    • The above does not restrict your statutory rights, your right to make a complaint to Trading Standards or another appropriate regulatory authority, or your right to pursue court proceedings or other forms of settlement such as through the European Union Online Dispute Resolution Platform, a portal through which you can submit a complaint to a registered Alternative Dispute Resolution Provider with the aim of resolving the dispute.
    • For U.S. and Canada Residents:
      • Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Website, or to products or services sold or distributed by us or through us, will be resolved by binding arbitration rather than in court, with the following exceptions:
        • You may assert claims in small claims court if your claims apply;
        • If a claim involves the conditional license granted to you as described in the Ownership of Content and Grant of Conditional License section above, either of us may file a lawsuit in a federal or state court located within Los Angeles County, California, or Toronto, Ontario, as applicable, and we both consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes; and
        • In the event that the arbitration agreement in these Terms is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against us (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in a federal or state court located within Los Angeles County, California, or Toronto, Ontario, as applicable, and we both consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.
      • The arbitration agreement in these Terms is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) or the Canada Commercial Arbitration Act (CAA), as applicable, including its procedural provisions, in all respects. This means that the FAA or the CAA, as applicable, governs, among other things, the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement and all of its provisions, including, without limitation, the class action waiver discussed below. State arbitration laws do not govern in any respect.
      • This arbitration agreement is intended to be broadly interpreted, and will survive termination of these Terms. The arbitrator, and not any court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to the extent permitted by law to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow these Terms as a court would.
      • To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Universe Experiences Inc. at: 2 Jackson St Suite #200 San Francisco, CA 94111, USA, Attn: Legal (if in the U.S.) or 17 Phoebe St, Suite 102, Toronto, ON M5T 1A8 Attn: Legal (if in Canada). You may download the forms located at http://www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS under its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures or, if applicable, its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, and any applicable supplemental rules including its Consumer Arbitration Standards of Minimum Fairness. The JAMS Rules are available online at http://www.jamsadr.com or by calling (800) 352-5267 (U.S.) or (416) 861-1084 (Canada). Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by JAMS's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous, but in no event will we pay for attorneys' fees. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
      • We each agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding, and that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. You agree to waive any right to a jury trial or to participate in a class action. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration section will be null and void and neither of us will be entitled to arbitrate our dispute.
      • You agree that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce and will be governed by and construed in accordance with U.S. federal law or Ontario law, as applicable, to the fullest extent possible.
  • GENERAL

    • Taxes: As a User of the Universe Services, you agree that you are solely responsible for determining your applicable tax reporting requirements in consultation with your tax advisors. Universe cannot and does not offer tax-related advice to any Users. Additionally, please note that each Seller is responsible for determining local indirect taxes and for including any applicable taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable taxes in Listings. You are also responsible for paying any governmental taxes imposed on your purchase from or use of the Universe Services, including, but not limited to, sales, use, or value-added taxes. To the extent Universe is required to collect such taxes, the applicable tax will be added to your billing account and Universe will issue a receipt on request from a Seller as required by law.
    • Waiver: If Universe delays or fails to enforce any of the provisions of this Agreement, it shall not mean that Universe has waived the right to do so.
    • Assignment: Universe shall be entitled to assign its rights and obligations under this Agreement provided that your rights are not adversely affected.
    • Severability: If it is found by a Court that any provision of this Agreement for any reason is invalid or cannot be enforced, this shall not prevent the other provisions from continuing to remain in full force and operate separately.
    • Illegality: If any provision of this Agreement is or becomes illegal, invalid or unenforceable under the law of any jurisdiction, that shall not affect or impair the legality, validity or enforceability in that jurisdiction of any other provision of this Agreement.
    • No Partnership/Agency: Nothing contained within this Agreement and no action taken by you or Universe under this Agreement shall create, or be deemed to create, a partnership, joint venture, or establish a relationship of principal and agent or any other relationship between you and Universe beyond the relationship created under this Agreement.
    • Entire Agreement: This Agreement and all documents incorporated into this Agreement by reference constitutes the entire agreement between the parties in connection to its subject matter and supersedes any previous agreement, terms and conditions or arrangement between the parties, whether written or oral. Each of the parties agrees that it has not entered into this Agreement in reliance on, and shall have no remedy in respect of any statement, representation, covenant, warranty, undertaking or indemnity (whether negligently or innocently made) by any person (whether party to this Agreement or not) other than as expressly set out in this Agreement. Nothing in this paragraph shall limit any liability for (or remedy in respect of) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
    • Notices: A notice provided under this Agreement shall be delivered upon receipt and shall be deemed to have been received (i) at the time of delivery, if delivered by hand, registered post or courier; or (ii) at the time of transmission if delivered by email (and no error message is received in response).
    • Governing Law and Jurisdiction: This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in all respects in accordance with the law of the country in which this Website is based, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions, and the parties agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of such country.

C. Terms and Conditions – Listing and Selling Tickets

  • CREATING A LISTING

    • Listing Responsibility of Seller: By creating a Listing using the Universe Services, Sellers are offering to sell or distribute, for the Sale Price, where applicable, Ticket(s) for Buyers to attend an Event. It is the Seller’s responsibility to make any Event or Ticket restrictions clear to the Buyer and the Seller is solely responsible for all the Listings that they post on the Website. Any changes to Listings, Events and Tickets must be made clear to Users and Buyers as soon as possible.
    • Listing Representation: A Listing is a legal representation made by the Seller about the details relevant to the Ticket and Event, and their accuracy.

    • Compliance: When creating a Listing, the Seller must comply with all applicable local, national and international laws and regulations and the terms of this Agreement. If you are a Seller trading as a business, you must identify yourself as such by using a business Account. Sellers trading as a business are responsible for complying with all applicable local, national and international laws and regulations in relation to their obligations as a “trader”. Universe assumes no responsibility for a Seller’s compliance with applicable laws, rules or regulations.
    • Seller Warranties: The Seller represents and warrants to and for the benefit of Universe, that any Listings that he/she creates:

    • Insurance: The Seller is solely responsible for any insurance that may be required in relation to the Listing and the Event.
    • Event Cancellation or Alteration: If an Event is cancelled, re-scheduled or amended in any way, this must be dealt with by the Seller and communicated clearly to Buyers. The Listing must be updated or removed by the Seller and if it is not, we reserve the right to remove the Listing from the Universe Services.
    • No Universe Guarantee: Universe does not guarantee that Listings made via the Universe Services will be published and active within a certain time of the Seller posting a Listing or that it will appear in a particular order in search results or that the Ticket(s) will sell. If a Ticket does not sell, Universe accepts no responsibility.
  • SALE OF TICKETS

    • Payment Processing Preferences: There are two Payment Processing Methods, Universe Payments and Stripe Payments, which Sellers can select when creating a Listing, further details of which can be found at Payment Processing Preferences. Once the Payment Processing Method has been selected by the Seller for a Listing, it can be changed at any time; however, any funds from existing Ticket sales will continue to be paid out via the Payment Processing Method set at the time of sale.
    • Approval Settings: Sellers may set a Listing so that Seller approval is required for a Buyer to complete a Transaction. Such Listings must specify the timeframe within which approval or rejection of the Transaction must be provided by the Seller. If the Seller neither confirms nor rejects the Transaction within this time, it will be automatically cancelled.
    • Sale Contract and Order Confirmation: Following Seller approval, if required, when a Buyer completes the sales process by entering their payment details and clicking on “pay now” for paid for Events or “register” for free Events, the parties shall become contractually bound to one another to complete the Transaction. An Order Confirmation will be generated and sent to the Buyer once the Buyer has completed the payment process.
    • Failed Delivery: Order Confirmations are automatically generated following the Buyer’s completion of the payment process. Any notification of a failed delivery that the Seller receives from a Buyer must be dealt with by the Seller as soon as possible and, in any event, in advance of the date of the relevant Event.
    • Disputed Events: If a Buyer disputes any element of an Event or a Transaction Value, such dispute shall be between the Buyer and the Seller and Universe shall have no involvement.

    • Universe Payments: Universe Payments is the default payment option which is available to Sellers.
    • Payment to Sellers: Provided that the Event has taken place, and no dispute has arisen in connection with the Transaction, Universe shall pay the proceeds due to the Seller from the Transaction using the payment method selected by the Seller approximately 48 hours after the end of the Event. Universe reserves the right to cancel Transactions and issue refunds to Buyers where, in its reasonable opinion, a Buyer is legally entitled to a refund for any reason, in which case no payment shall become due to the Seller.
    • Payment Details: Sellers are responsible for providing Universe with accurate bank account information associated with their Account and keeping this up to date at all times.
    • Account Balance: Sellers will be notified by email once funds are available for withdrawal. Universe shall remit the withdrawal request to the Seller within a commercially reasonable time of such request.
    • Payments: In some circumstances, payment shall only be made if the amount due to the Seller totals at least the Threshold Amount. Unpaid amounts of less than the Threshold Amount will be carried over indefinitely until the amount accrued is the Threshold Amount or above. If Sellers wish to have their balance remitted in a given month in which the amount due to them is less than the Threshold Amount, the Seller should contact Universe at support@universe.com with such request.
    • Withholding Payment: Universe reserves the right to withhold payment to a Seller or charge back to the Seller’s account any amounts otherwise due to Universe under this Agreement, or any amounts due as a result of a breach of this Agreement, pending Universe’s reasonable investigation of such breach, in its sole discretion. Universe reserves the right to freeze any payments due to Sellers for up to 6 months if it, in its sole discretion, believes that charges may be disputed by Buyers or the Seller, Event, Listing and/or Tickets appear to be fraudulent.
    • Disputed Payments: If a Seller disputes any payment made or owed by Universe, the Seller must notify Universe in writing within 30 days of any such payment being paid or becoming due. Failure to notify Universe within the required time frame shall result in a waiver by the Seller of any claim relating to any such disputed payment.
    • Refunds: If a Seller grants a Buyer a refund but has insufficient funds in their Universe account to cover the refund amount, the Seller’s account will go into the negative and Universe shall pursue the Seller for all monies owed. The Seller will be charged the Service Charge, which shall be retained by Universe.
  • STRIPE PAYMENTS

    • Stripe Payments: By setting up a Stripe Connect account via the Stripe website, Sellers can integrate their Account with Stripe to process payments for their Events using their own merchant account.
    • Payments: Immediately upon a Transaction being completed by the Buyer, the total value of the Sale Price(s) (or the Sale Price(s) less the Service Charge(s), if the Seller opts to pay these) will be paid directly into the Seller’s Stripe account and the Service Charge shall be paid to Universe.
    • Refunds: In the event that a Buyer requests a refund of the Transaction Value, this shall be granted at the sole discretion of the Seller. Universe may initiate a refund request on behalf of a Buyer but is under no obligation to do so.
  • PAYMENTS

    • Applicable Taxes: Sellers agree to pay all applicable taxes or charges imposed by any government entity and/or local laws or regulations in connection with their Listings and associated Transactions.
    • Chargebacks: Any credit card chargebacks or other transaction reversals initiated against Universe or its affiliates for any reason (except to the extent they are caused solely by Universe’s negligence or wilful misconduct) with respect to a Seller’s Listing and all related credit card association, payment processing and other fees and expenses incurred by Universe or its affiliates in connection with such chargebacks shall ultimately be the responsibility of the Seller and the Seller agrees to promptly and fully reimburse Universe for such amounts on demand. Universe reserves the right to withhold at least 10% of a Seller’s proceeds, in its sole discretion, to cover the cost of any such chargebacks that may arise.
    • Cancellation and Refunds: The cancellation and refund policy for a Ticket is at the Seller’s discretion and will be set out in the Listing description.

    • Universe Account Information: The Seller may be given access to Buyers’ Universe Account Information where necessary to fulfil Tickets.

Where Universe Account Information of Buyers is made available, it is confidential and must only be disclosed to authorised persons using appropriate security measures.

    • the Sale Price;
    • the Service Charge (if applicable); and
    • any other charges included by the Seller.
    • Check Your Order: As a Buyer, you must ensure that you have read the full Listing details and are happy with your Ticket selection prior to purchase. Universe will not rectify any issues that arise and Sellers will only do so in their sole discretion.
    • Payment Information: The Buyer warrants and represents that he or she is authorised to use the selected payment method and that the billing information provided is complete, up to date and accurate.
    • Approval Settings: Some Listings may require the Seller’s approval prior to the Buyer being able to purchase Tickets. Such Listings shall specify the timeframes within which approval must be given by the Seller. If no approval is granted within such timeframes, your order will be cancelled and payment will not be taken.
    • Order Confirmation: Upon Buyers completing their purchase, by entering their payment details, where necessary, and clicking on “pay now” for paid for Events or “register” for free Events, an Order Confirmation shall automatically be issued to the Buyer, which is the point at which the Buyer and Seller enter into a binding agreement. The Order Confirmation will contain the Ticket with which the Buyer will be able to attend the Event. If the Order Confirmation is not received, it can be retrieved from the Account dashboard, along with the Ticket.
    • Payment: Once the Buyer receives the Order Confirmation, depending on which Payment Processing Method the Seller has selected, the Buyer agrees that Universe or a third-party payment processor, acting on behalf of the Seller, may debit or authorise the amount of the Transaction Value from the method of payment provided by the Buyer. If applicable, the Service Charge is non-refundable and, unless otherwise agreed by the Seller, no refunds or credits will be provided once the Buyer has been charged.
    • Other Ticket Terms and Conditions: All Tickets purchased by the Buyer are subject to the Ticket, Event and Venue terms and conditions, and all applicable laws and regulations.
    • After-Sales Queries: If the Buyer has any questions or concerns following the purchase of a Ticket, the Buyer should contact the Seller directly and should not contact or attempt to contact Universe.
    • Donations: Sellers may pledge to donate a portion of the Sale Price to a particular cause or charity. Universe does not control or accept any responsibility or liability for any donations pledged by the Seller. Universe does not investigate or otherwise ensure the factual accuracy of any donation claims made by Sellers in Listings.
    • Foreign Currency: Universe provides a feature through which Users may view fees for various Listings in foreign currencies. Sale Prices listed in foreign currencies are for informational purposes only. You understand and agree that any such foreign currencies are not the official Sale Price and at the time you request a booking you will be notified of the currency in which you will be charged together with the corresponding Transaction Value. The value is payable in the currency specified at the time of checkout.
  • CANCELLATION AND REFUNDS

    • Cancellation: The cancellation and refund policy for a Ticket is at the Seller’s discretion and will be set out in the Listing description. If no such policy is set out by the Seller, Buyers may cancel a booking and receive a refund of the Sale Price, if requested 24 hours or more before the start time of the Event.
    • Refunds: If a Buyer cancels a booking within the timeframe set out by the Seller, if any, the Buyer may be refunded the Sale Price for such booking within a commercially reasonable amount of time, typically one week after a refund is agreed upon. Service Charges, if applicable to the Buyer, are non-refundable (other than as may be legally required).

The Seller and the Buyer must arrange such a refund between themselves and Universe shall have no responsibility or liability for any such refunds.
    • Disputes: If a Seller fails to fulfil its obligations in relation to a Transaction, subject to the refund options a Seller has set out in the Listing, Buyers will have 48 hours from the start time of the Event to request a refund. If a Buyer requests a refund within this timeframe, Universe will promptly notify the Seller. The Seller will have 48 hours to rebut such dispute, resulting in one of two scenarios: (i) if the Seller does not rebut such dispute, a full refund of the Sale Price will be given to the Buyer by the Seller; or (ii) if the Seller does rebut such dispute, the two parties must contact one another to resolve the dispute and submit the confirmation of the resolution to Universe within 30 days. If no confirmation of resolution is received by Universe within 30 days, Universe will resolve the dispute in its sole and absolute discretion, which may include a decision to refund the Buyer and pursue the Seller for the refunded amount. It is the Seller’s responsibility to provide proof that a Buyer was in attendance at an Event.

    • Cancelling Transactions: Universe reserves the right to cancel a Buyer’s Transaction in any of the following circumstances if:
