The Auckland Trotting Club Inc (“ATC”) and its subsidiaries (together “us”“we” or “our”) operate Alexandra Park.  From time to time we host events in the function rooms and at other places at Alexandra Park.  Each such event is advertised on this website (Event).  In these ticketing terms & conditions, “you” and “your” means the purchaser of tickets to an Event (or the person or organisation on whose behalf you are acting).

By purchasing a ticket to an Event from us you agree to accept and be bound by these ticketing terms & conditions (Ticketing Terms); our Website Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy, and all applicable laws and regulations governing the sale of tickets to you and your attending the Event.

We reserve the right to update these Ticketing Terms without any prior notice.  Any update will apply to ticket purchases made after the time of the update.

You should read these Ticketing Terms carefully prior to confirming your order for a ticket to an Event.  Any queries relating to these Ticketing Terms should be raised with us prior to the purchase of a ticket, as confirming your order constitutes acceptance of these Ticketing Terms.

We may set additional terms and conditions for a specific Event.  Any such additional terms and conditions will be set out on the website page containing the details of the Event or on a website page linked from the Event details.

Purchase Of Tickets

The advertisement of Events and provision of functionality to purchase tickets on this website is not an offer to sell tickets to Events.  All tickets must be ordered by you.  Tickets may be ordering by you using the functionality provided on this website or by calling our telephone operators on the numbers provided.

All orders of tickets to Events are subject to availability and to acceptance by us.

We may limit the number of tickets available for any Event. We may also limit the number of tickets you may purchase.

To order tickets you must provide us with an email address and other contact details as specified in the ordering process.  If you do not provide us with the requested information you will not be able to purchase tickets.  It is your responsibility to inform us of any change to the email address or other contact details you provide to enable us to contact you in relation to the tickets you order and/or the Event.

You must be at least 18 years of age to purchase tickets to, and attend, our Events.

The price of tickets to Events will be advertised on this website with the details on the Event. Prices are inclusive of GST.

Payment for any tickets you order must be made at the time you order the tickets.  Payment may be made by providing your credit card details to our telephone operators, by a direct payment to our bank account where the booking is made through our telephone operators, or by using the payment mechanism we make available on this website.  No other methods of payment will be accepted by us.

We may provide a discount to the advertised price for ordering and paying for tickets using the functionality and payment mechanism we make available on this website.  If we do so, the amount of the discount will be specified on this website with the advertised price to the Event.

If your credit card is declined, you do not make the payment to our bank account, or you are otherwise unable to make the necessary payment using the payment mechanism we make available on this website then your order is deemed to be cancelled.

Correction Of Errors

We may change or correct any error relating to an Event on this website, including any errors in any pricing, at any time and all changes will take effect immediately that we make the change.

Your purchase of tickets to an Event is made subject to our right to correct an error, including if that results in a change to the pricing.  If the error is material or it relates to pricing and we exercise a right to correct that pricing, we will contact you using the contact details you provide to advise you of the error.  In relation to pricing errors, you may elect to pay any additional amount due or alternatively you may cancel your ticket booking and receive a refund of the amount you paid.  If the price we charged you was more than the correct price we will contact you to organise a refund of the overpaid amount.  If we contact you in relation to any other material error you may elect to proceed, or cancel your ticket and receive a refund of the amount you paid.

If we are unable to contact you in relation to a pricing error where an additional amount is due (or you do not respond to any messages we send you) we may cancel your ticket booking.  Where we cancel your booking you are entitled to receive a refund.  You will need to contact us to organise a refund in such a case.

Issue Of Tickets

Tickets will not be issued until you arrive at Alexandra Park on the day of the Event.  The booking confirmation will tell you the place at Alexandra Park where you are to collect your ticket.  To collect your ticket from that place it is preferred by us if you provide your booking confirmation to us as evidence of your booking. However, if you forget your booking confirmation a valid form of identification must be provided to our satisfaction. If you are not able to provide the necessary identification or evidence of your booking we may deny you entry to the Event or remove you from the Event if you have already gained entry.

We will determine the form of the ticket that is to be issued.  Such a ticket may be in the form of a wristband.  Where a wristband is issued to you it must be worn at all times while you are at the Event venue or otherwise within Alexandra Park.  If the ticket is in any other form you must keep it in such manner as we may specify when the ticket is issued.  We may remove from Alexandra Park anyone that does not have a valid ticket.

Tickets may only be collected by the person whose contact details are recorded in the booking confirmation.  You may not purchase tickets on behalf of another person as the contact person for the booking confirmation unless you provide that person’s name (and any contact details required by the booking process) so they can pick up the ticket.  For a group of persons, you must provide such information for each person in the group.  All individuals must pick up their tickets individually.  If you purchase tickets for any other person you must ensure that they agree to these Ticketing Terms.  You warrant that you are able to agree to these Ticketing Terms on behalf of all such other persons and that you have the right to provide their personal information to

If the cost of the other Event is less than the price you paid for the booked Event the difference will be treated as a request for a refund.
