Customer Terms and Conditions
Customer Terms and Conditions
In general Helixfestival.com processes booking/ticket sales for Helix Festival LLC. All questions or claims concerning events and their performance shall be made to Helix Festival LLC.
Terms and conditions of ticket purchase A booking is considered final once payment has been made. Choosing Partial.ly as payment method is equivalent with credit card payments that confirms that the payment has been made, even if the invoice is to be paid at a later date by the customer. The Act concerning remotely concluded contracts, in its provisions concerning the right to cancel a purchase, does not cover purchase of event tickets. When payment has been made, the Customer is therefore bound by his purchase. All ticket sales are verified and confirmed electronically. Only tickets purchased at Helixfestival.com will allow admittance to the festival. Suites purchased through any booking sites other than Helixfestival.com, including venue/resort sites, will not include entry into festival grounds and amenities.
Service, delivery and distribution charges In addition to the booking/ticket price, the Customer pays a service charge and in certain cases a delivery charge.
About festival tickets Tickets for festivals are sold only to the entire festival and not to individual artists and performances and thus cannot be refunded if parts of the line up/program is changed.
Personal use Bookings/Tickets may only be purchased for personal use, and may not be used for commercial purposes. This means that the booking/ticket may not be resold on commercial basis, or offered in competitions or in connection with offers for other products or services, without the written consent of Helix Festival, LLC. If there is a restriction on the number of tickets allowed per purchaser, this may not be exceeded.
Purchase which conflicts with the set terms and conditions Helix Festival, LLC. retains the right to cancel bookings or purchases made by the Customer, and with immediate effect to exclude the Customer from Helix Festival, LLC., if the Customer does not provide correct information about himself or otherwise breaches or attempts to circumvent the terms and conditions which apply for booking/ticket purchase. This applies, among other things, if the Customer books or purchases more tickets than permitted, or if the Customer resells purchased bookings/tickets on a commercial basis. In the case of cancellation for such reason, the service charge paid will not be repaid, nor any delivery or distribution charges. Helix Festival, LLC. can also decide that the ticket price paid for the booking/ticket purchase shall not be repaid.
Cancelled events Even though the Customer is responsible for checking that the event is not cancelled, Helix Festival, LLC. will make every reasonable effort to notify the Customer. In certain cases, Helix Festival, LLC. will redeem tickets for a cancelled event with the exception of processing fees, service and delivery charges which will not be repaid. In addition, Helix Festival, LLC. Is not responsible for airline tickets, transfers or ground transportation and will adhere to the venue’s cancellation policy for accommodations.
Booking Cancellation and Modification Policy Due to COVID-19
As a consequence of the latest situation, we have modified our cancellation terms relative to COVID-19 in order to provide as much flexibility as possible.
Generally, all bookings are final sales. However, the following circumstances may trigger a cancelation and automatic refund or rescheduling:
- If the Jamaican border is closed to international travelers;
- If the Customer reaches the Jamaican border and is denied entry into the country due to COVID-19.
These circumstances will require independent verification before refunds are processed. In the event, the Helix Festival is moved to a later date because of COVID-19, Customers will be offered reservation confirmations for the new dates.
Refund If the Customer has the right to repayment of money paid for tickets or money paid for tickets and service charge/delivery charge, the Customer shall, not later than three (30) days from the date of the event/the date the event should have taken place, inform Helix Festival, LLC. regarding his claim for repayment, and state the account number and bank to which repayment shall be made. If this is not done, the Customer has no right to repayment. This applies both for cancelled events and in cases in which the ticket is cancelled and the Customer has had the right to repayment.
