unless prevented from doing so for security reasons or by law. SimpleSeats will reinstate your SimpleSeats account
or execute the payment transaction as soon as practicable after the reasons listed in this section no longer
5. App StoresYou acknowledge and agree that the availability of the Application and the
Services is dependent on the third party from whom you received the Application license, e.g., the Apple App
Store or Google Play ("App Store"). You acknowledge that the Terms are between you and SimpleSeats and not with
the App Store. SimpleSeats, not the App Store, is solely responsible for SimpleSeats Properties, including the
Application, the content thereof, maintenance, support services, and warranty therefor, and addressing any
claims relating thereto (e.g., product liability, legal compliance or intellectual property infringement).
In order to use the Application, you must have access to a wireless network, and you agree to pay all fees
associated with such access. You also agree to pay all fees (if any) charged by the App Store in connection
with SimpleSeats Properties, including the Application. You agree to comply with, and your license to use the
Application is conditioned upon your compliance with, all applicable third-party terms of agreement (e.g.,
the App Store's terms and policies) when using SimpleSeats Properties, including the Application. You
acknowledge that the App Store (and its subsidiaries) are third-party beneficiaries of the Terms and will
have the right to enforce them.
6. Buyers: Score Report, Seat Quality, Seat Views and Ticket PricesRegistered Users who want to buy tickets ("Buyers") may search for events and
view ticket listings. SimpleSeats ranks and lists tickets based on a combination of ticket prices and seat
quality ("Score Report"). The ticket Score Report is a feature that helps users search through tickets;
however, the purchase of tickets is at the full discretion of the Buyer, and all sales are final. SimpleSeats'
determination of seat quality is only an estimate based on historical data about the view and location. The
Seat Views provided by SimpleSeats for a given section reflects the view from that location in general and is
not specific to any one ticket listing within that section. SimpleSeats is not responsible for the quality of
the specific seat.
The price printed on the ticket in most cases will not be the same as the
purchased price or the cost of the transaction. Ticket prices are set by the owners of ticket(s) ("Seller").
SimpleSeats does not own ticket inventory or set ticket prices. As a result, the ticket prices listed may be
substantially higher (or in some cases lower) than the original face value printed on the ticket.
All SimpleSeats sales are final even though ticket prices for live events continue
to fluctuate on the open market. It is possible that prices of similar seats will change over time; if the
prices of similar tickets increase prior to the event, you will not be charged more. Conversely, if the
price of similar tickets decreases prior to the event, no credits, refunds or upgrades will be given.
SimpleSeats will never charge more than what you have authorized. All prices are listed in U.S. dollars.
7. Buyers: Finding Tickets and Placing OrdersTo order tickets, a Buyer first browses SimpleSeats' listings for tickets. When
the Buyer finds desirable tickets, the Buyer places an "order" or a "bid to purchase the ticket(s). When an
order is placed, Sellers have 48 hours to receive notification of an order and confirm delivery. All orders
are final and, once placed, cannot be cancelled or retracted. However, placing an order does not complete
the sale; a sale is only completed once it has been confirmed by the Seller. All bids are firm bids, and
once a Seller accepts a bid and confirms the sale the transaction is complete and cannot be cancelled or
retracted. However, all bids can be retracted prior to a Seller accepting your bid. To be explicit, once a
Seller accepts a bid, it cannot be cancelled or refunded. Therefore, Buyers should treat bids as an order to
purchase tickets which a Seller can confirm at any time.
The Buyer's credit or debit card is not charged until the Buyer's order is
confirmed by the Seller. However, when a Buyer places an order or bid, we obtain an authorization from the
Buyer's credit or debit card for the full order amount, which is equal to the total ticket price, or the
maximum bid times the quantity of the tickets ordered plus a shipping & handling charge (note: there is no
commission or service charge to the Buyer). The authorization remains on the Buyer's credit card until the
sale is completed or the order is cancelled. Although an authorization is not a charge, debit card issuers
will place a hold on funds when an authorization is obtained by SimpleSeats. In all cases, SimpleSeats is not
responsible for any bank fees or other penalties resulting from authorizations and/or charges to the Buyer's
credit or debit card when the Buyer places orders or bids.
After a Buyer places an order to purchase tickets, it is possible that the
Seller no longer owns those tickets or for some other reason will not confirm the sale. In that case,
SimpleSeats will work to help the Buyer source similar seats for the same price or less. However, SimpleSeats
cannot guarantee that similar seats for the same price or less will be available for sale; in this case, the
Buyer's credit or debit card will not be charged and the sale will be cancelled.
Event dates, times, venues, and subject matter, which are listed on the ticket,
may change. It is the responsibility of the Buyer to verify the most recent details for an event. Please
contact the box office or refer to local listings for any changes.
SimpleSeats does not guarantee any information provided by our Sellers in the
Seller Notes area of the ticket listings. It is the Buyer's responsibility to verify any possible
inconsistency or discrepancy in the ticket location, description, and/or price by calling SimpleSeats as soon
as possible following the discovery of such a discrepancy. Use of a ticket without reporting a discrepancy
to SimpleSeats constitutes acceptance of the ticket as is, notwithstanding any inconsistency with the Seller's
listing and the actual ticket.
Upon the Seller confirming the sale, the Buyer is guaranteed to receive the
tickets in time for the event. SimpleSeats cannot guarantee the method of the delivery for a given sale, only
that the tickets will be delivered in time for the event.
If there are any issues or discrepancies with the tickets that you receive from
what was purchased, SimpleSeats will do it's best to find comparable replacement tickets. If replacement
tickets cannot be found or are not available at a comparable price, SimpleSeats reserves the right to cancel
the order and credit or refund the full purchase amount to the buyer. In this case SimpleSeats will provide you
with a prepaid FedEx shipping label to use to return the tickets to SimpleSeats.
If a seller notifies SimpleSeats of a "drastic pricing error" when listing tickets
for sale, SimpleSeats will use their sole discretion to decide whether it is appropriate to cancel a sale and
excuse the seller from fulfilling the sale. This is most commonly caused when a seller forgets a digit (ex:
$40 vs $140) or reverses the digits (ex: $260 vs $620) when setting the price on a listing. In these cases,
whether an order is confirmed or not, SimpleSeats in its sole discretion, reserves the right to cancel the sale
without penalty to the seller, and provide the buyer with a credit or refund.
You must notify SimpleSeats in writing within seven (7) days after receiving your
credit card statement, if you dispute any of our charges on that statement or such dispute will be deemed
waived. Billing disputes should be notified to the following address: [email protected].
When attending an event, you may be required to sign a waiver or other legal document in order to gain access to the venue by the venue or event organizer or such party’s agent. By purchasing tickets from SimpleSeats, you understand that you may be denied entry if you do not sign such waiver.Due to the uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic, your tickets and admission to the event are subject to all venue and/or event organizer/promoter safety and health policies. You acknowledge that due to the evolving nature of the pandemic, the venue and/or event organizer/promoter may continue to develop and update these policies in the intervening time between your purchase and the event date. By purchasing tickets, you acknowledge and agree that you will comply with such policies and your attendance at the event is conditioned on such compliance.If, for reasons of maintaining social distancing or other safety reasons related to the covid19 pandemic, venue security or other personnel relocate you to a location within the venue that is different from the seating location that you had purchased from us, such relocation will not qualify you for a refund or for other compensation.If you are not permitted into an event for any reason other than due to the invalidity of the ticket(s) you receive, SimpleSeats is not responsible and you will not qualify for a refund or any other form of compensation.8. Ticket UpgradesTicket listings are a representation of actual seat location. Tickets may be
substituted with comparable or better seat locations. Actual seat and row numbers may vary from those
purchased on the Site. SimpleSeats will always look to upgrade Buyer's tickets when possible and reserves the
right to determine what constitutes a "comparable" or "better" ticket for substitution or upgrade
9. Listing Tickets for Sale A Registered User who wants to sell tickets may list the tickets on SimpleSeats.
As part of the listing process, the Seller assigns a price to the tickets and must provide accurate
information such as the event description, date, section, row, and seat. Sellers must also ensure that such
listings remain accurate. Sellers are required to disclose if the tickets state that it is an obstructed
view, partial view, or mobility view (as well as any other information that may be relevant to a ticket
Sellers are expressly forbidden from listing for sale: (a) tickets that the
Seller does not own; (b) tickets obtained in violation of the Better Online Ticket Sales Act of 2016 (i.e.,
obtained via circumvention of a security measure, access control system, or other technological control or
measure on an Internet website or online service that is used by a ticket issuer to enforce posted event
ticket purchasing limits or to maintain the integrity of posted online ticket purchasing order rules); (c)
Speculative tickets; (d) Stolen tickets; (e) Nontransferable "paperless tickets,"" "flash seats," and "will
call only" tickets (transferable "paperless tickets," "flash seats," and "will call only" tickets may be
sold); (f) tickets without event access unless clearly stated in the listing (e.g., "PARKING ONLY"). Sellers
may only list for sale non-consecutive seats and "piggyback seats": (seats directly behind one another) if
clearly stated in the listing.
A Seller who lists a ticket for sale on the Site may choose to sell that ticket
for a fixed price. The Seller sets a definite price at which the ticket(s) will sell immediately when a
Buyer places an order for the ticket(s).
A Seller who lists a ticket on the Site may choose to sell that ticket via the
"Bidding Platform," which is the technology that allows a Registered User to make an offer to buy tickets
from multiple Sellers. Sellers can view the bids of Buyers and, at their discretion, agree to sell their
ticket(s) at the chosen bid prices.
Pricing tickets is the sole responsibility of Sellers and must be done in accordance
with all applicable laws. Sellers are solely responsible for the payment of any applicable taxes resulting
from your ticket sales.
We issue tax forms at the end of the year to any seller that meets the state or
federal thresholds for documenting those sales. You agree to provide SimpleSeats with your Social Security
Number or other tax identification number if necessary for SimpleSeats to provide (without notice to You)
information to the relevant tax authorities related to payments you receive from us and further authorize
SimpleSeats to release that information to the relevant tax authorities.
SimpleSeats will include sales tax on appropriate purchases where we are required
to collect and remit such taxes by state law. Sales tax is identified separately on purchases by consumers.
10. Completing Your SaleWhen your tickets sell you are obligated to deliver the exact listed tickets,
however, your sale is not complete until the buyer receives the tickets from you. Completing a sale means
following all of the steps to send the tickets you sold, on time and as promised in your listing. SimpleSeats
verifies the authenticity of the order and reserves the right to cancel any order that it identifies as
As soon as your tickets sell, we'll send you an email to notify you to complete
your sale. The deadline to complete your sale is based on whether you told us your tickets were in hand or
not - and if not, the date you identified as your In-Hand Date.
Simultaneously, SimpleSeats verifies the authenticity of the order and the buyer,
and reserves the right to cancel any order that it identifies as fraudulent. In this case sellers are free
to relist their tickets for sale again.
11. Seller Obligations, Penalties, & RestrictionsBy listing a ticket for sale, you are making a binding offer to sell that ticket
to a Buyer who purchases the ticket for the price you have specified. When a Buyer accepts your offer by
purchasing your ticket through our Site or Services, you are contractually bound to deliver that exact
ticket for the specified price and within the required delivery timeframe.
SimpleSeats may provide Sellers with certain information related to Buyers, such as
their contact information, so that Sellers can send tickets to them. Sellers are prohibited from using such
information for any purpose other than the fulfillment of their obligations in providing purchased tickets
to Buyers. Sellers shall not include, in any shipment to any Buyer, any materials other than the purchased
tickets, including business cards, bookmarks, coupons, flyers, solicitations, contact information or any
other marketing or advertising materials.
If your tickets have sold but you cannot fulfill the order or there was a
problem with fulfillment (also referred to as a 'dropped sale'), SimpleSeats may charge your payment method an
amount equal to 200% of the price of the ticket(s) sold to compensate us for the losses we incur to meet our
obligations under the SimpleSeats Guarantee. SimpleSeats reserves the right in its sole discretion to charge
your payment method the full amount of the replacement costs SimpleSeats incurs under the SimpleSeats
A dropped sale can be triggered by the following situations: 1. You cannot
deliver the ticket(s) or related passes in time. 2. You do not have a replacement ticket (tickets that
SimpleSeats determines in its sole discretion are comparable or better than the ones originally listed). 3.
SimpleSeats rejects your requested change and cancels the order, or 4. The tickets that were delivered were not
By listing a ticket for sale, you certify that the ticket was obtained lawfully
and, among other things, not in violation of the Better Online Ticket Sales Act of 2016 (i.e., obtained via
circumvention of a security measure, access control system, or other technological control or measure on an
Internet website or online service that is used by a ticket issuer to enforce posted event ticket purchasing
limits or to maintain the integrity of posted online ticket purchasing order rules).
12. Users Relationship with SimpleSeatsAs a Buyer, a Registered User grants SimpleSeats permission to charge the credit or
debit card associated with their registration for the purchase of tickets. As a Seller, a Registered User
grants SimpleSeats permission to charge the credit or debit card associated with their registration for costs
incurred by SimpleSeats if at any time the Seller fails to deliver the tickets they have listed or delivers
invalid, fraudulent, counterfeit, or misrepresented tickets. These costs may include, but are not limited
to, the cost of replacement tickets, coupons, gift certificates, credits or refunds to the Buyer, and other
charges we incur to satisfy the Buyer under the terms of SimpleSeats' SimpleSeats Guarantee.
SimpleSeats acts as a marketplace only to allow Buyers and Sellers to interact
regarding tickets. In all cases, the submission and confirmation of orders are transactions between Buyers
and Sellers only. The fulfillment of confirmed orders, including delivery and shipment of tickets, is the
responsibility of the Seller. If you have a dispute with one or more registered users, you release SimpleSeats
and all affiliated companies, officers, directors, agents, parents, subsidiaries, legal representatives, and
employees from any claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known
and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected

23. Dispute ResolutionPlease read the following arbitration agreement in this Section ("Arbitration
Agreement") carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with SimpleSeats and limits the manner in which
you can seek relief from us.
22.1 Applicability of Arbitration Agreement: You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way
to your access or use of the SimpleSeats, to any products sold or distributed through the SimpleSeats, or to any
aspect of your relationship with SimpleSeats, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court,
except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify; and (2) you or SimpleSeats
may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as
trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement
shall apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the Effective Date of this
Arbitration Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement. 22.2 Arbitration Rules and Forum: The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and
enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established
alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not
inclusive of attorneys' fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS's most current version of the
Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at
http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS's most
current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at
http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS's rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com
or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an
alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS's filing,
administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, SimpleSeats will pay them for
you. In addition, SimpleSeats will reimburse all such JAMS's filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees
for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may
choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the
country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the
arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. 22.3 Authority of Arbitrator: The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the
scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the
interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not
limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration
will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and SimpleSeats. The arbitration proceeding will not be
consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the
authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority
to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under
applicable law, the arbitral forum's rules, and the Terms (including the Arbitration Agreement). The
arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and
conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator
has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The
award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us. 22.4 Waiver of Jury Trial: YOU AND SimpleSeats HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO
SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and SimpleSeats are instead electing that all
claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified
in Section 22.1 above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court
and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and
court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review. 22.5 Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief: ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF
THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS,
ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR
CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law
precludes enforcement of any of this subsection's limitations as to a given claim for relief, than then
claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in New York,
New York. All other claims shall be arbitrated. 22.6 30-Day Right to Opt Out: You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration
Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: SimpleSeats, 225 W
34TH ST, STE 1708, New York, NY 10122, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration
Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your SimpleSeats username (if any), the email
address you used to set up your SimpleSeats account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you
want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts
of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on
any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us. 22.7 Severability: Except as provided in subsection 22.5, if any part or parts of this Arbitration
Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be
of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in
full force and effect. 22.8 Survival of Agreement: This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your
relationship with SimpleSeats. 22.9 Modification: Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if
SimpleSeats makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within
thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing SimpleSeats at the following address: SimpleSeats,
225 W 34TH ST, STE 1708, New York, NY 10122.
