The following are the rules or “TERMS” that govern use of the serioustickets.com Web Site (“SITE”) by you, the USER of the SITE (“USER”). By using or visiting the SITE, USER expressly agrees to be bound by these TERMS and to follow these TERMS and all applicable laws and regulations governing the SITE. serioustickets.com.com reserves the right to change these TERMS at any time, effective immediately upon posting on the SITE. If USER violates these TERMS serioustickets.com.com may terminate USER’s access to the SITE, bar USER from future use of the SITE, cancel USER’s ticket order, and/or take appropriate legal action against USER.
Above Face Value. Tickets sold through SITE are often obtained through secondary market TICKET SELLERS and are being resold, in many cases, above the price or “face value” listed on the ticket. All ticket prices include additional service charges and handling fees as defined on each order. SITE and its TICKET SELLERS are not directly affiliated with any performer, sports team, or venue; and SITE does not act as a primary sale box office, unless otherwise stated. By agreeing to these TERMS, USER agrees that the purchase price for tickets on their order does not reflect the original purchase price of the ticket and may be either higher or lower than the original purchase price.
Orders. Orders placed through SITE will be fulfilled by one of our network of participating TICKET SELLERS. Contact information for the TICKET SELLER who fulfills USER’s order (hereinafter known as “FULFILLER”) will be provided to USER upon completion of the purchase process. If this information is lost, USER may contact serioustickets.com to retrieve information about the order.
All sales are final. Since tickets are a one-of-a-kind item and not replaceable, there are no refunds, exchanges or cancellations. If an event is postponed, tickets will be honored for the rescheduled date. New tickets will not need to be issued. If an event is cancelled without a rescheduled date, User will need to contact the FULFILLER for a refund. The FULFILLER may require the User to return the supplied tickets at User’s expense before receiving any refund User is entitled to due to cancellation. serioustickets.com is not responsible for providing or securing this refund for User. Any shipping and handling charges are not refundable. Refunds will be processed in the same currency as the original order. Conversion charges, including though not exhaustive of the ones issued by USER’s bank, if any, are not covered by serioustickets.com or Fulfiller.

When User receives tickets, User should keep them in a safe place. Please note that direct sunlight or heat may damage tickets.
