2.3   Your contract for purchase of a Product will have effect from our confirmation of your purchase (unless Clause 2.4 below applies) and ends immediately after the completion of the relevant Event, save that, if you have purchased any non-Ticket Product, your contract for the purchase of such product will end 14 days after the date of delivery of the relevant Product to you. All purchases are subject to payment card verification and other security checks and your transaction may be cancelled if it has not passed our verification process

2.4 Security Check Email: Upon making an order and receiving the "order confirmation", your order may be placed on "security check" by our payment security department. In this case, you will subsequently receive an email indicating documents which need to be provided to us in order for us to validate your payment. Please ensure that all documentation is provided to us in timely manner. Should you receive a "security check" email after your "order confirmation", your order shall not be deemed confirmed until the security check is cleared to our satisfaction.  We reserve the right to cancel bookings which we reasonably suspect to have been made fraudulently or in breach of these Terms of Sale.

2.5   You agree not to obtain or attempt to obtain any Products through unauthorised use of any robot, spider or other automated device or any other illegal or unauthorised activity. We reserve the right to cancel any transaction which we reasonably suspect to have been made in breach of these provisions without any notice to you and any and all Products purchased as part of such transaction will be void.

3.  Prices and fees

3.1   Purchases from us may be subject to handling fees, credit card fees and delivery fees.

3.2   Please note that the price printed on a Ticket is usually its initial face value rather than the purchase price. You will not be entitled to a refund on the basis that you have paid a higher price than the face value of the Ticket. The price paid for a Ticket represents its true value at the time of purchase. Prices may vary and you will not be entitled to a refund if the price of similar Tickets subsequently changes.

3.3  Products relating to each Event will have their prices set in a “master currency” for the Event.  Prices displayed in other currencies are for information only.  The amount to be paid and the master currency of the race are stated prior to purchase. In some cases, foreign exchange rate fees may be applied by your bank, resulting in the debited amount on your bank statement differing from the amount displayed in in the Ticket store.

3.4   Whilst we try to ensure that all prices on our website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any Product you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible.  If the price displayed was higher than the correct price, we will refund you the difference.  Where the Product's correct price is less than the price stated on our site, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.  If we are unable to contact you after making reasonable endeavours to do so, you agree that we may treat the order as cancelled. If you choose to cancel after you have already paid the incorrect price, you will receive a full refund from us.
 

3.5 Customs Charges for ticket delivery: we are not liable for any fees applied by the border services for international deliveries. It is the responsibility of the customer to be aware of customs regulations and fees, and the customer is liable to pay any customs fees to the customs & border services of the country in question. 


4.   Cancellations and refunds
 
4.1   Purchased ticket(s) are non-cancellable and non-refundable.

4.2  If you have purchased any Non-Ticket Product, you are entitled to cancel the purchase of such Non-Ticket Product within fourteen (14) days of the date of delivery of the relevant Product (or during such longer period as may be specified in the Promoter's terms and conditions where relevant) unless Clause 4.3 applies. You are not entitled to cancel your associated Ticket purchase in such circumstances. To cancel your Non-Ticket Product purchase, please contact us at ticketstore@formula1.com.

4.3  Notwithstanding Clause 4.2, if you have purchased any Non-Ticket Product as a digital download (such as a voucher for an Official Event Programme), you may cancel your transaction within 14 days of the day of purchase ("Cancellation Period"), unless you have purchased such digital download during the 14 days immediately before the date of its release or at any time on or after the release date, in which case you will have agreed for the digital download to be provided to you before the expiry of the Cancellation Period and will have acknowledged that your right to cancel will be lost.

4.4   Cancellation of an Event: The Ticket is purchased for the relevant Event. No Tickets are transferable to other events.

If an event is cancelled (and not rescheduled) and should the promoter of the event offer a form of financial compensation or refund for the client order, you may be entitled to receive this amount fully or partially, depending the circumstances in question.

Should an event be cancelled (and not rescheduled) and the promoter offers no form of financial compensation, we will in no way be liable or responsible for providing refunds, nor any form of compensation, be it financial or other.

We will also take all reasonable precautions to ensure that our staff and employees who have access to personal data about you have received adequate training. Moreover, our staff and employees are bound by obligations of confidentiality.

PLATINIUM GROUP provides sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures in such manner that processing will meet the requirements of GDPR and ensure the protection of the rights of data subject. Indeed, the following specific measures are put in place:

SSL Technology & Encryption
When you enter sensitive information on our registration or purchase forms, we encrypt that information using Secure Socket Layer Technology (SSL).

Server Security 
We follow a series of proven security measures relating to the servers where your data is stored, as contracted with our server provider. These measures are also outlined in our contract with our server provider.

Replication & Backup of Data
We ensure the proper replication and backup of data as detailed in our data architecture policy and IT operations plan.

Physical Security Measures 
PLATINIUM GROUP uses an internal protocol for security measures to ensure that outside personnel cannot access our databases. We also apply access restrictions and educate staff members on how to properly handle personal data. All employees also sign a non-disclosure agreement as a part of their contract. 

Notification in Case of Data Breach
In case a personal data breach occurs that could result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, we will notify you immediately in a notification describing the nature of the data breach, the likely consequences of the personal data breach and the measures taken to address it.

We will not notify you of the breach if our technical and organisational protection measures eliminate the risk of the breach, if the high risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects is no longer likely to materialize or if it would involve disproportionate effort. In such a case, we will instead organize a public communication or similar measure where the data subjects are informed in an equally effective manner.

Disclaimer
Please note that even though PLATINIUM GROUP uses industry-leading measures to protect data, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to PLATINIUM GROUP or guarantee that your information on the PLATINIUM GROUP Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of any of our industry standard physical, technical or managerial safeguards. No method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
