TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Terms and Conditions of Sale

NOOSA alive! ABN 50 175 875 841 (“Noosa Long Weekend”) provides events and ticketing services, including the sale and distribution of tickets, as the seller, from time to time the agent for the venue, promoter or person responsible for holding the relevant event. In providing these services, NOOSA alive! owns and operates noosaalive.com.au (the “Site”).
Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before purchasing a ticket. By purchasing a ticket from NOOSA alive!, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.

These Terms and Conditions relate both to the sale of tickets and attendance at events. These Terms and Conditions apply to both the original purchaser and any subsequent ticketholders (“you”).

NOOSA alive! may vary these Terms and Conditions at any time by updating them. Any variations will only apply to ticket purchases made after these Terms and Conditions have been updated.

Each ticket is also sold subject to any additional terms and conditions of the Seller for the particular event (including their Conditions of Entry) (“Seller’s Terms”). The Seller’s Terms may be disclosed as part of the event information on NOOSA alive!’s website and at NOOSA alive! events and outlets at the time of purchase. The Seller’s Terms are also available from NOOSA alive! on request.
NOOSA alive! acts as the Seller and at times an agent for the Seller in the sale of all tickets. As such, except as specified in these Terms and Conditions, all claims in connection with tickets or events are the sole responsibility of the Seller and, except to the extent required by law (including the Australian Consumer Law) NOOSA alive! otherwise has no liability to you.
Without limiting other remedies, NOOSA alive! may limit, suspend or terminate the account of users who are acting inconsistently with these Terms and Conditions, including in particular the accounts of users who we believe are harassing, threatening or abusing our employees or other users or who act in an unlawful or inappropriate manner. For clarity, NOOSA alive! may limit, suspend or terminate the account of a user which has been activated primarily to circumvent temporary or permanent suspensions already in place with respect to a different account.

  1. NOOSA alive! does not offer refunds or exchanges as a result of a change in your personal circumstances or due to external factors such as, for example, adverse weather.

If an event is cancelled, you do not need to apply for a refund as we will automatically attempt to process a refund back to the original payment method used to purchase the ticket. Otherwise, you must apply for a refund by the earlier of: (a) 4 weeks after notification of the reschedule or relocation; or (b) 72 hours prior to the event. If you do not request a refund by that date, you will have agreed to the reschedule or relocation and will not be entitled to claim a refund;
  2. If an event is cancelled, rescheduled or significantly relocated by the Seller, all liability is limited to the amount for which the ticket was purchased (including any fees or charges unless otherwise notified at time of purchase). Proof of purchase may be required for any refund or exchange. Unless required by law (including the Australian Consumer Law), neither NOOSA alive! nor the Seller will be liable for any other losses incurred by you as a result of the cancellation, rescheduling or relocation of an event, including any travel and accommodation expenses;

NOOSA alive! will only replace lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed tickets if the authenticity of the ticket can be verified, including proof of purchase, and if you give reasonable notice before the event.

  4. You should carefully consider the refund and cancellation policies of travel, accommodation and other goods or service providers when making arrangements for attendance at an event. You may also wish to consider taking out a relevant insurance policy to cover for any losses in the event of cancellation, rescheduling or relocation;

  8. When attending the event, you and each attendee in your group agree to assume all risks associated with COVID-19 or other such communicable diseases.

Entry to an event may be refused if the authenticity or validity of a ticket is questionable, including because the ticket has been damaged or defaced in any way, or has not been purchased from NOOSA alive! or other authorised points of sale.

Tickets may not, without the prior written consent of NOOSA alive! and the Seller, be resold or offered for resale at a premium (including via on-line auction or other unauthorised resale sites) or used for advertising, promotion or other commercial purposes (including competitions and trade promotions) or to enhance the demand for other goods or services. If a ticket is sold or used in breach of this condition, the ticket may be cancelled without a refund and the ticketholder of the ticket may be refused admission. NOOSA alive! will use reasonable efforts to notify you of such action.

SCALPING WARNING: The resale of tickets in certain circumstances is governed by ticket sales legislation and may attract criminal penalties.

You must allow adequate time for collection or delivery of tickets. Methods of collection and/or delivery will be available when choosing your collection/delivery details. In the interests of minimising ticket scalping, NOOSA alive! may change your delivery method to “venue collect” at its discretion.

Where concessions are applicable, suitable and valid identification must be provided for collection of tickets and at the event.
When purchasing tickets for a particular event you may be limited to a specified number of tickets. If you exceed the stated ticket limit, you may have any or all of your orders and tickets cancelled without notice by NOOSA alive! at its discretion. This includes orders associated with the same name, e-mail address, billing address, credit card number or other information. Ticket limits apply to ensure fair access to tickets for fans, and as a measure to minimise ticket scalping.

Errors

While NOOSA alive! takes all reasonable care to ensure that tickets are correctly priced and only available for sale when intended, sometimes errors may occur. NOOSA alive! may cancel an order made as a result of any such error, although in the case of a pricing error NOOSA alive! will endeavour to contact you to give you the option of purchasing the ticket at the correct price.
If an error on your behalf results in NOOSA alive! reprocessing the ticket transaction at your request, NOOSA alive! may charge to you the actual costs incurred in reprocessing the ticket transaction, including any chargeback or postage fees charged to NOOSA alive! by a third party.

  • if the disclosure is permitted under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth); or
  • if you have consented to the disclosure.

Some of the recipients to whom we disclose personal information may be located overseas, although the countries where such recipients are located are limited.

Where it is lawful and practicable to do so, we will give you the option of not providing personal information, or of using a pseudonym, when you deal with NOOSA alive!. For most events, you may be able to make a cash transaction at a NOOSA alive! event without providing personal information.

However, if we do not collect personal information about you at the point of sale or when you interact with us, this could impact the level of service we can provide to you, for example, we will not be able to contact you in the case of an event cancellation or venue change or we may not be able to properly respond to your inquiry or investigate your complaint or fully process your transaction.
