Listing Service And Limited Agent
West Indian Connection is not the organizer or owner of the events listed for sale or registration on the Services. West Indian Connection provides the Services, which allow Organizers to list and promote their events, but the respective Organizer listed on the applicable event page makes all sales. In the event that an Organizer has elected to use West Indian Connection’s Payment Processing Service, West Indian Connection also acts as the Organizer’s limited agent solely for the purpose of using its third-party payment providers to collect payments made by Attendees on the Services with respect to an event and passing such payments through to the applicable Organizer. It is the Organizer’s sole obligation to ensure that any event page posting on the Services and the nature and conduct of the underlying event meet all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations, and that the goods and services described in any event page posting are actually delivered in a satisfactory manner.
Selection Of Payment Processing Method
As an Organizer, you may select your preferred payment processing method for your event, provided, that once you sell the first ticket to an event you may not change the payment processing method for that event. As an Attendee, you will be using whatever payment processing method the Organizer of the applicable event has selected. If the Organizer has selected a payment processing method that uses a third party to process the payment, then either West Indian Connection or any of its third-party payment processing partners processes the transaction but may transmit your payment details to the Organizer’s designated payment provider. If the Organizer has elected to use West Indian Connection’s Payment Processing Service, West Indian Connection will use third party payment processing partners to process the transaction as Organizer’s limited payment agent.
Creating an account, listing an event and accessing the Services are free. We charge our fees only when you sell or buy paid tickets or registrations. All descriptions of standard fees on the Services represent the standard fees that West Indian Connection charges to Organizers. These fees may vary based on individual agreements between West Indian Connection and certain Organizers. Organizers ultimately choose if these fees will be passed along to Attendees and shown as “Fees” on the applicable event page or absorbed into the ticket or registration price and paid by the Organizer out of ticket and registration gross proceeds. The fees charged to Attendees may include certain other charges, including without limitation, facility fees, royalties, taxes, processing fees and fulfillment fees. Therefore, the fees paid by Attendees for an event are not necessarily the same as those charged by West Indian Connection to the applicable Organizer or the standard fees described on the Services to Organizers. In addition, certain fees are meant, on average, to defray certain costs incurred by West Indian Connection, but may in some cases include an element of profit and in some cases, include an element of loss. West Indian Connection does not control (and thus cannot disclose) fees levied by your bank and/or credit card company, including fees for purchasing tickets and registrations in foreign currencies or from foreign persons. Be sure to check with your bank or Credit Card Company prior to engaging in a transaction to understand all applicable fees, credit card surcharges and currency conversion rates.
Because all transactions are between an Organizer and its respective Attendees, West Indian Connection asks that all Attendees contact the applicable Organizer of their event with any refund requests. You can find help with getting a refund. Organizers agree to post and maintain a refund policy on each event page and that refund policy will govern, provided that the refund policy must be consistent with West Indian Connection’s Attendee Refund Policy Requirements. In the event that an Organizer has not responded to a refund request within two (2) business days or there is a dispute between an Organizer and an Attendee that cannot be resolved, either party may contact West Indian Connection. West Indian Connection may, in its discretion, attempt to mediate such dispute, however, West Indian Connection will have no liability for (a) an Organizer’s failure to give refunds; (b) West Indian Connection’s failure to mediate a dispute; or (c) West Indian Connection’s decision if it does mediate the dispute.
