(b)            Placing Orders for Tickets and Merchandise

 

All prices for tickets and merchandise listed on our Websites are subject to change.  In the event a ticket or merchandise item is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical error or error in pricing or product information received from our suppliers, we shall have the right, prior to the acceptance of your order pursuant to our Order Acceptance Policy, to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged.  If your credit or payment card has already been charged for the purchase and we cancel your order, we shall issue a credit to your credit or payment card account in the amount of the charge.  Please note that the colors of items and merchandise may depend on your monitor and may not be correctly displayed. Please keep in mind that while we might offer a variety of merchandise, and other products and service offerings for sale on our Websites, we cannot guarantee availability at a particular time; and certain products or services available in our stores might not be available on our Websites, and vice versa.  We reserve the right to change our merchandise and other products and service offerings, both in-store and online, at any time.  We also reserve the right to change contents, features and offerings, and adjust accessibility of our Websites from time to time in our discretion.

You need a valid credit or payment card (except to the extent we permit purchases with  PayPal, gift cards, gift certificates, promotional or discount codes, or similar forms of payment), with full authority to use it, to submit an order for tickets or merchandise through our Websites.  You hereby represent and warrant that you will not use any credit card or other form of payment unless you have all necessary legal authorization to do so.  You may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your transaction including, without limitation, your credit or payment card number, the expiration date of your credit or payment card, your billing address, and your shipping information.   By submitting such information, you grant to us the right to provide such information to third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of transactions initiated by you or on your behalf to purchase products or services from the Websites.  You understand that we will not be liable in the event that others acting with or without your permission use your credit or payment card to make purchases on the Website.   

You are urged to review all web pages displayed during your completion of a purchase. All fees and charges related to your transaction will be disclosed to you during the purchase process. If you do not agree to pay the fees or charges associated with your purchase, you may cancel your transaction.  NHRA reserves the right to add fees to all ticket orders and further reserves the right to change or adjust these fees at any time in its sole discretion.

When purchasing tickets, you may be linked to a third-party site (e.g. Paciolan, Ticketmaster, Tickets.com, etc.) which is not affiliated with this Website or NHRA.  WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ASPECT OF THIRD-PARTY WEB SITES, INCLUDING PURCHASES MADE ON THOSE SITES. Please make sure to review the terms and conditions that you will find on these third party websites.

If you decide to purchase tickets or other merchandise, you agree to pay, in addition to the price for the ticket or merchandise, other fees and charges that we may impose, including but not limited to: convenience fees, processing fees, method of delivery fees and other miscellaneous fees. The amount of each fee may vary, depending on the tickets or merchandise you purchase and the method you select to receive your tickets or merchandise.

Fees and charges, including (but not limited to) charges for issuance, reissuance, convenience, handling, processing, shipping, delivery, (including but not limited to, charges for mailing or other delivery), and any other miscellaneous charges assessed by us represent, among other things, the costs we incur in providing our goods and services to you. The fees and charges we assess may be greater than our actual cost of providing those services, and we may retain a portion of all such fees and charges as profit.

 

(c)             Order Acceptance Policy

Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell.  We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason.  We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any item. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order.  Your order is not accepted until we send you shipping or delivery information for the order (or the accepted portion thereof).  Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that, if we cancel all or a portion of your order or if we provide you less than the quantity you ordered, your sole and exclusive remedy is either that (a) we will issue a credit to your credit or payment card account in the amount charged for the cancelled portion or the quantity not provided (if your credit or payment card has already been charged for the order) or (b) we will not charge your credit or payment card for the cancelled portion of the order or the quantity not provided.
