If we are unable to contact you to confirm your order at the correct price, you agree that we may treat the order as cancelled and issue you with a full refund.
5.11. Seat Unique utilises a Dynamic Pricing Tool across the Platform which, when applied by the relevant Event Partner, sets the Sale Price of any Ticket in line with its current market value. Accordingly, where Dynamic Pricing is being utilised, the Sale Price of any Ticket will fluctuate in line with market demand from time to time. This is to ensure that fans get access to the most in-demand Tickets for an Event whilst enabling Event Partners to price Tickets closer to their true market value. In these circumstances you pay the Sale Price of the Ticket advertised at the time you make your purchase. If the price of a Ticket decreases after you have made your purchase you will not be entitled to a refund or credit. It is possible that a different face value may be printed on your Ticket to the Sale Price you paid. In this case you will not be entitled to a refund or credit on the basis that you have paid a higher Sale Price than the face value of the Ticket.

Not all goods purchased on our Site will require the physical delivery of a Ticket. We reserve the right to make Tickets available for collection by you at the Event, at a venue box office or at another designated ticket collection point - in each case as notified to you by telephone or e-mail.
6.2. We cannot deliver the goods if we are unable to properly identify you therefore you may be asked to provide a form of ID (passport or photocard driving licence), your booking confirmation and/or the credit or debit card you used to pay for the goods.

6.3. We aim to dispatch Tickets as soon as possible following completion of your order however we are not able to specify the exact dates of dispatch as the arrangements for delivery will depend on when we are in physical possession of the Ticket. In some circumstances we may only receive your Ticket from our Event Partner close to the date of the Event.

6.4.1. is outside of our control; and
6.4.2. affects the date of delivery;
we will let you have a revised estimated date for delivery of the Tickets.
6.5. Delivery of the Tickets will take place when we or the relevant Event Partner delivers them to the address that you gave to us or when they are collected by you at the notified collection point or, if being delivered by e-mail, 1 business day after the e-mail has been sent to you by us.

7.2. It is possible that some of our Event Partners may have policies in place that restrict the issuing of replacement Tickets where the original has been lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed (for example where there is a possibility that both original and any replacement tickets may be used to gain entry, which may compromise the licensed capacity of a venue).
