VMT’s packages and other goods, products and services often include tickets, passes, amenities, merchandise, reservations, experiences and other goods, products, services and items offered, controlled and provided by Third Parties (collectively, “Third Party Items”).  For all Third Party Items, VMT acts solely as a third party intermediary between you and various Third Parties who are promoting, producing or otherwise providing or making available the events, amenities, or other goods, products or services for which you purchase tickets, passes, reservations or other means of entry and/or access.  VMT provides such Third Party Items on behalf of such Third Parties, which means VMT does not usually set the base room rates or other prices or determine details like times and seating locations, except under certain expressly provided circumstances.  Such Third Party Items may be subject to a per-item convenience charge and a non-refundable per order processing fee.  In many cases, delivery prices, facility fees and/or ticketing charges will also be owed by you in connection with such Third Party Items.

UNFORTUNATELY, ON OCCASION CONCERTS OR OTHER EVENTS ARE CANCELLED, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, RAINED OUT, POSTPONED OR RESCHEDULED OR CERTAIN AMENITIES, ARTISTS, PERFORMERS OR OTHER PARTIES OR ASPECTS OF WHATEVER GOOD, PRODUCT AND/OR SERVICE APPLICABLE TO YOUR TRANSACTION MAY BE CANCELLED OR ALTERED FOR ANY OR NO REASON.  SHOULD THIS OCCUR, WE MAY ATTEMPT TO CONTACT YOU REGARDING APPLICABLE PROCEDURES, BUT IT IS ULTIMATELY YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CONTACT THE APPROPRIATE THIRD PARTY FOR EXACT INSTRUCTIONS, AND VMT SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SUCH CANCELLATIONS, RAIN OUTS, POSTPONEMENTS, RESCHEDULES OR ANY OTHER CHANGES TO THE GOOD, PRODUCT AND/OR SERVICE IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR TRANSACTION, AND YOUR SOLE REMEDY SHALL BE WITH THE APPLICABLE THIRD PARTY.  WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, IF A THIRD PARTY EVENT IS CANCELLED, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, RAINED OUT, POSTPONED OR RESCHEDULED, AND TICKETS/PASSES TO SUCH EVENT WERE INCLUDED IN A TRAVEL PACKAGE OR OTHER GOOD/SERVICE PURCHASED BY YOU FROM VMT, THEN VMT WILL MAKE REASONABLE EFFORTS TO CAUSE THE APPLICABLE THIRD PARTY TO ISSUE A REFUND FOR THE VALUE OF SUCH TICKETS/PASSES IF POSSIBLE, HOWEVER, NEITHER VMT NOR ANY APPLICABLE THIRD PARTY HOTEL, RESORT OR OTHER FACILITY WILL BE OBLIGATED TO ISSUE YOU A REFUND FOR THE HOTEL/RESORT/ACCOMMODATION/TRAVEL PORTION, OR ANY OTHER ASPECT, OF YOUR PURCHASE.  WITHOUT LIMITING ANYTHING SET FORTH HEREIN OR ANY OTHER RIGHTS OF VMT, IF THE ELEMENT, AMENITY OR OFFERING IS CONTROLLED SOLELY AND DIRECTLY BY VMT, THEN, EXCEPT AS REQUIRED OR SUGGESTED BY APPLICABLE AUTHORITY OR LAW, WE HAVE THE SOLE AND ABSOLUTE DISCRETION IN MAKING THE FINAL DETERMINATION OF CANCELLATION, DISCONTINUATION, POSTPONEMENT, RESCHEDULING AND/OR REFUND AVAILABILITY.

  1. Order Confirmation.

If you do not receive a confirmation number (in the form of a confirmation web page or e-mail) after submitting payment information, or if you receive an error message or service interruption after submitting payment information, it is your responsibility to confirm with VMT, the ticketing company or other appropriate Third Party whether or not your order has been placed and transaction was a success.  Most likely, you will be the only one aware of any problems that occur during the purchase process, so it is on you to solve them.  VMT will not be responsible or liable for any losses (monetary or otherwise) if you assume that an order was not placed because you failed to receive confirmation.

  1. Governing Law, Disputes, Including Mandatory Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to the products or services sold or distributed by us or through us, will be resolved by binding arbitration rather than in court, with the following exceptions:

  • You may assert claims in small claims court if your claims apply;
  • In the event that the arbitration agreement in this Policy is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against us (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in a federal or state court located within Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, and we both consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.

The arbitration agreement in this Policy is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), including its procedural provisions, in all respects. This means that the FAA governs, among other things, the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement and all of its provisions, including, without limitation, the class action waiver discussed below. State arbitration laws do not govern in any respect.

This arbitration agreement is intended to be broadly interpreted, and will survive termination of this Policy. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to the extent permitted by law to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow this Policy as a court would.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to: Valley Music Travel, 1 South Broad St, Ste. 1710, Philadelphia, PA, 19107, Attn: Legal. You may download the forms located at http://www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS under its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures or, if applicable, its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, and any applicable supplemental rules including its Consumer Arbitration Standards of Minimum Fairness. The JAMS Rules are available online at http://www.jamsadr.com or by calling (800)-352-5267. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by JAMS’s rules, but in no event will we pay for attorneys’ fees. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. In the event that the location of the Arbitration (Philadelphia County, PA) is for any reason held to be unenforceable, the Arbitration shall take place in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

We each agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding, and that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. BY MAKING YOUR PURCHASE, YOU AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration section will be null and void and neither of us will be entitled to arbitrate our dispute. If any provision of this Purchase Policy shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this Purchase Policy and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

  1. Miscellaneous.

Nothing contained in this Policy will be deemed to constitute either party as the agent or representative of the other party, or both parties as joint venturers or partners for any purpose.  You may not assign, delegate or transfer your rights, if any, or obligations under this Policy.  VMT may assign its rights and duties under this Policy without such assignment being considered a change to the Policy and without notice to you.  The terms and conditions set forth in this Policy represent the entire understanding and agreement between you and VMT relating to the precise subject matter herein and supersede any and all prior statements, understandings or agreements whether oral or written, and shall not be modified except in writing, signed by VMT.  Any waiver of any provision of these terms must be in writing signed by VMT to be valid.  A waiver of any provision hereunder shall not operate as a waiver of any other provision, or a continuing waiver of the same provision in the future.  If any court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these terms to be void or unenforceable for any reason then such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of the court’s finding without affecting the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
