This limit on tickets is set by the Event Promoter, in its sole discretion, and is posted during the purchase process and will be verified during each transaction. If you are a member of an Event Promoter’s fan club, you may be allowed access to certain tickets or ticket packages. Event Promoter, in its sole discretion and without prior notification to you, reserves the right to block your access to or cancel your ticket order if it: (i) is associated with any ticket broker or scalper, (ii) utilizes automated means to process or place ticket orders, (iii) exceeds the stated ticket limit, (iv) is purchased for purposes other than to attend the event, or (v) has violated the terms of the Event Promoter’s membership rules.

The Event Promoter reserves the right to modify its ticket prices from time to time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the amount you pay for a ticket is incorrect, regardless of whether because of an error in a price posted by Venue Driver or Event Promoter or otherwise communicated to you, or you are able to order a ticket before its scheduled sale or presale date, or you are able to order a ticket that should not have been released for sale, then Venue Driver and/or Event Promoter have the right to cancel that ticket (or the order for that ticket) and refund to you the amount that you paid.
Venue Driver and/or Event Promoter reserve the right, in their sole discretion, to refuse to transact with you if fraudulent use of your credit or debit cards is suspected.

22. Dispute Resolution, Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver
Please Read This Following Clause Carefully
It May Significantly Affect Your Legal Rights, Including Your Right to File a Lawsuit in Court
(1) Initial Dispute Resolution
We are available by email at the address provided in the “How to Contact Us” Section to address any concerns a user may have regarding the Site. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. For any dispute you have with Company, you agree to first contact us and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally and directly through consultation and good faith negotiations, which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
(2) Agreement to Binding Arbitration.
If we do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant to section “Initial Dispute Resolution” above, then either party may initiate binding arbitration.
All claims arising out of or relating to these Terms and/or your use of the Site shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered on a confidential basis by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The interpretation and enforcement of these Terms shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act.
THE AAA’S RULES GOVERNING THE ARBITRATION MAY BE ACCESSED AT WWW.ADR.ORG OR BY CALLING THE AAA AT 1.800.778.7879.
TO THE EXTENT THE FILING FEE FOR THE ARBITRATION EXCEED THE COST OF FILING A LAWSUIT, WE WILL PAY THE ADDITIONAL COST. IF WE ARE REQUIRED TO PAY THE ADDITIONAL COST OF THE FILING FEES, YOU SHOULD SUBMIT A REQUEST FOR PAYMENT OF FEES TO AAA ALONG WITH YOUR FORM FOR INITIATING THE ARBITRATION, AND WE WILL MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO PAY THE NECESSARY FEES DIRECTLY TO AAA. THE ARBITRATION RULES ALSO PERMIT YOU TO RECOVER ATTORNEY’S FEES IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES.
THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT, ABSENT THIS MANDATORY PROVISION, THEY WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. THEY FURTHER UNDERSTAND THAT, IN SOME INSTANCES, THE COSTS OF ARBITRATION COULD EXCEED THE COSTS OF LITIGATION AND THE RIGHT TO DISCOVERY MAY BE MORE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION THAN IN COURT.
(3) CLASS ACTION AND CLASS ARBITRATION WAIVER.
YOU AND THE COMPANY EACH FURTHER AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION SHALL BE CONDUCTED IN YOUR RESPECTIVE INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES ONLY AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, AND YOU AND THE COMPANY EACH EXPRESSLY WAIVE YOUR RESPECTIVE RIGHT TO FILE A CLASS ACTION OR SEEK RELIEF ON A CLASS BASIS. IF ANY COURT OR ARBITRATOR DETERMINES THAT THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER SET FORTH IN THIS PARAGRAPH IS VOID OR UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON OR THAT AN ARBITRATION CAN PROCEED ON A CLASS BASIS, THEN THE ARBITRATION PROVISION SET FORTH ABOVE SHALL BE DEEMED NULL AND VOID IN ITS ENTIRETY AND THE PARTIES SHALL BE DEEMED TO HAVE NOT AGREED TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES.
(4) Exception – Small Claims Court Claims.
Notwithstanding the parties’ agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
(5) Exception – Public Injunctive Relief.
Notwithstanding the parties’ agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may seek public injunctive relief in a court of law. “Public injunctive relief” means relief that by and large benefits the general public, and that benefits the claimant, if at all, only incidentally or as a member of the general public.
(6) Exclusive Venue for Litigation
To the extent that the arbitration provisions set forth above do not apply, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in Clark County, Nevada (except for small claims court actions which may be brought in the county where you reside). The parties expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in the State of Nevada for any litigation other than small claims court actions.
23. General Information
This TTOU and any applicable additional terms and conditions, each as amended from time to time, constitute the entire understanding between the parties in relation to the subject matter and supersede all prior discussions, agreements and representations, whether oral or written and whether or not executed by you or Venue Driver.

The TTOU and the relationship between you and Venue Driver shall be governed by the laws of the State of Nevada without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within Clark County, Nevada, and you explicitly consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to, venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of Las Vegas, Nevada. The failure of Venue Driver to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the TTOU shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the TTOU is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the TTOU remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the use of the Service or the TTOU must be filed within two (2) years after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
