You are responsible for providing and agree to (i) provide us with complete, correct, and accurate information about you when you open your Account and (ii) promptly update that information after it changes. The details of your Account can be updated within your Account via the Site. You are responsible for keeping your password and login information for the Site secret so that only you can access your Account on the Site.

Until you notify us of an unauthorized use of your Account, we will continue to process Transactions and charge them to your Payment Method.
A Pass serves as the official confirmation of your purchase of a particular item offered for sale via the Site. You are responsible for correctly entering and selecting information on the Site for each of your Transactions. Before purchasing a Pass, carefully review the details of your Transaction, such as date, time, and location.
Parking Operators, not us, maintain the Parking Locations, parking space inventory, and vehicle capacities, as applicable.
The products and services offered via the Site are not available in all locations, on all dates, at all times, and/or for all parking spaces, and your ability to initiate a Transaction may be limited accordingly.
The Pass will be in the form of an electronic, printable Pass emailed to you or a digital image that can be displayed from your compatible device, as applicable. Parking Operators will reject any entry attempt made with any document other than the actual Pass. For example, any confirmation page or email you present may not be accepted and you will be subject to any charges established by the Parking Operator.
If you are turned away from a Parking Location while in possession of a valid Pass for any reason (except for your error, the cancellation of the event, or your failure to follow or abide by the applicable rules and regulations), please contact us or the applicable Parking Operator for assistance.
You may be limited to purchasing no more than a specified number of Passes. This policy is in effect to discourage unfair Pass buying practices and may also be required by some Parking Operators. All orders are tracked based on Account information. In the event that you violate the provisions of this paragraph, in our sole discretion, we may, without notice, (i) void the Passes and the amount will not be refundable; and/or (ii) terminate your Account.
You agree not to sell or transfer a Pass to any third party. This policy is in effect to discourage unfair Pass buying practices and may also be required by some Parking Operators. In the event that you violate the provisions of this paragraph, in our sole discretion, we may, without notice, (i) void the Pass and the amount will not be refundable; and/or (ii) terminate your Account.
When presenting a Pass at a Parking Location, you may additionally be required to provide evidence that you purchased the Pass from us and a valid ID.
Any Pass that you purchase or acquire from a party other than us, may be invalid and/or may not be honored. With respect to any Pass purchased or otherwise acquired from a party other than us, you hereby agree that you will have no recourse against us or have any cause of action against us in the event that the Pass is not honored when presented or is invalid, void, or otherwise unusable.
Parking Restrictions shall take precedence over any information that you receive from us (e.g., a prohibition on parking in a certain area). The Parking Restrictions apply to you and your use of the Site does not in any way exempt you from identifying and complying with the Parking Restrictions.
Parking rates vary as a result of parameters set by the Parking Operator such as Parking Location, time of day, day of the week, special events, and the like and these variances are beyond our control and may not be reflected in the Site in a timely manner. Increases or other changes to parking rates, changes to the Parking Restrictions or other parking variables, and/or the introduction of new Parking Restrictions are beyond our control and may not be reflected in the Site in a timely manner. We are not responsible for any parking rate variances, parking rate changes or for any differences between the parking rates reflected in the Site and the parking rates assessed at the time of the Transaction.
You are solely responsible for ensuring that you have properly secured your vehicle before you leave your vehicle unattended.

You agree to pay all Transaction Charges together with all other fees, charges, or assessments related to each Transaction.
You are responsible for all Transactions initiated using your Account and the related Transaction Charges. If you permit another person or persons to access or use your Account, we will treat this as if you have authorized such use and you will be liable for all Transactions incurred by those persons using your Account.
We will process the amounts for Transactions by charging your Payment Method at the time of your Transaction. If do not have at least one valid Payment Method with all necessary Payment Information, we may immediately suspend or block your ability to complete a Transaction. If your Payment Method is declined, your Account may be blocked or terminated. Additionally, we reserve the right to transfer the claims for unpaid Transaction Charges to third parties.
You are responsible for promptly updating all Payment Information in the event of any changes. We will have no liability for your inability to complete Transactions as a result of incorrect or outdated Payment Information.
We have no liability for any transaction fees, insufficient fund charges, or any other fee, penalty, or charge that is assessed as a result of charges made to any of your registered Payment Methods. You shall remain fully liable to us for the amount of any outstanding Transaction Charges.
You are subject to any applicable terms, conditions, restrictions, and other requirements of any Payment Provider related to any Payment Method and we have no liability for any transaction fees, insufficient fund charges, or any other fee or charge that is assessed by a Payment Provider in connection with your use of such Payment Provider for Transactions.
In connection with your Transactions, we may charge a pre-authorization amount against your credit or debit card, which may reduce the funds you have available for your use.
If, in good faith, you dispute any fees for a Transaction, you must provide written notice of the dispute to us and the applicable Parking Operator within ten (10) days of the date of the Transaction. Your failure to comply with this procedure shall constitute your approval of such fees.
