The price of RISE 2021 tickets is non-negotiable.
The ticket you purchase represents a revocable license for you to access RISE Virtual Event between 4th May 2021 to 8th May 2021, when RISE 2021 is scheduled to be hosted.

The bearer has to assume full responsibility for the RISE 2021 tickets, once they receive it. Pride Circle has no liabilities – financial, legal, or otherwise – in case the delivered tickets are stolen, lost, damaged, destroyed or rendered unusable in any other way.
Kindly note that www.thepridecircle.com/rise2021 is the sole authorised source for purchasing RISE 2021 tickets.

The issuer has the right to dishonour such stolen/counterfeit tickets and declare them as void.
The RISE 2021 tickets delivered to you are not meant to be used for illegal reselling, reproducing, or misrepresenting in any form.

Any proven record of such activities will result in immediate seizure and cancellation of your ticket(s).
Please note that RISE 2021 tickets cannot be redeemed against cash, credits, or any other benefits.
Pride Circle has the right to investigate if there has been any violation of the RISE 2021 ticketing terms and conditions. In case of any conflicts, the decision of Pride Circle will be deemed final (i.e., the issuer will remain the final arbiter in cases of disputes).
Losses, if any, occurring due to foreign exchange fluctuations at the time of refunds, have to be borne by the purchaser. Pride Circle cannot be, in any way, held liable for that.
REFUND AND EXCHANGE
The event service will be deemed to have been delivered in its entirety as soon as RISE 2021 starts on 4th May 2021. No refund requests will be entertained at any time from date of purchase of tickets, unless Pride Circle receives a refund request that they deem valid. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for refund requests on or before 20th April 2021. Pride Circle’s decision on whether a refund shall be granted is final and binding.
If you are not able to access any particular section(s) of the RISE Virtual Event due to delays, statutory regulations, organiser policies, weather-related problems, technology-related problems emergencies, or any other reason, you will not be eligible for any refunds or future credits.
If RISE 2021 is cancelled in its entirety due to any unforeseen circumstances, Pride Circle has the sole and absolute right to: i) reschedule the event, or ii) issue a partial/full refund, or iii) not issue any refunds.
Please note that the decision of the issuer in such cases will be deemed final and binding.
If RISE 2021 is cancelled due to any factors or causes not in the control of the issuer, the issuer will offer a partial or full refund, or postpone the event, or provide a comparable ‘make good’ option. These factors will be inclusive of, but not limited to, natural disasters, government announcements, strikes, and the like. Once again, the decision of Pride Circle will be considered final.
If RISE 2021 has to be rescheduled to other dates, you will not be eligible for any refunds. In case the event is fully canceled, the refund, if issued, will include ONLY the face value/printed value of the ticket(s).
The bearer cannot, under any circumstances, claim refunds on shipping fees, processing fees, handling fees, convenience fees and such other charges.
All ticket sales are deemed as FINAL TRANSACTIONS. There will be no ticket returns/exchanges/cancellations.
RISE 2021 is a ‘rain or shine’ event. Please note that you purchase RISE 2021 tickets on your own free will.

Further refund/return/cancellation requests will not be entertained either.
