3.2 The entry ticket needs to be purchased through the trade channels provided by WAO or a subject authorized by WAO to sell the entry tickets. The ticket holder may not be allowed by the organiser to access the event venue in case the entry ticket was purchased by the client from other sellers, which are not included in the previous descriptions. In this case, the ticket holder may also be forced to leave the event venue.
3.3 The entry ticket cannot either be sold by the client or become an object of brokerage.
3.4 The name of the ticket holder may be changed by the designated procedure until 60 (thirty) days before the date of the festival start.
3.5 WAO may cancel an entry ticket or a purchase order in any moment under request of the authorities in charge for public order and security, or due to technical and/or organizational reasons – which are not included in the point number 7 of this document.
3.6 With the purchase of the entry ticket, the buyer allows their e-mail to be added to the organiser’s mailing list for commercial purposes.
3.7 The client has the right to be fully reimbursed for the total price of the entry ticket and any other expenses related to WAO (including the postage fees) in case of cancellation. Modality and time frame for reimbursments will be estabilished by the organiser, unless the cancellation is due to the client failing to complete the payment of the entry ticket.
3.8 The price of the entry ticket is the one communicated by the organizer at the moment of the end of the client’s entry ticket purchase process. No refunds will be paid for any lower prices issued by the organizer for same-type entry tickets or regarding events in any date, after the purchase of the entry ticket by the client.
4. PAYMENT METHODS
Due to security reasons, WAO has the right to apply limitations and exclusions to the payment methods for the client to purchase the entry tickets.
5. ENTRY TICKET PRICE AND COMMISSIONS
The entry ticket price is the one printed on the entry ticket itself, including all the pre-booking fees applied by the organizer. WAO applies service commissions to every transaction as a pay off for digital payment services offered by third parts. These commissions are due to pre-existend agreements and will be at the discretion of the organizer. Further details on commissions are explicitly highlighted in the most suitable ways in relation to the different trade channels used by WAO.
Entry ticket prices, as well as commissions, postage fees and any further price exposed on the WAO website are VAT included.
6. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
The client acknowledges that the right of termination is not applicable as stated on art. 52 of the “Codice del Consumo”, because the contract has the supply of products and services for leisure, and the organizer commits to supplying these services in a specific date or time frame.
The right of termination is applicable in referral to the long-distance trade of goods other than the entry ticket, at the condition that these goods are included in the categories for which the right of termination is applicable as stated in art. 59 of the “Codice di Consumo”. In this case, the termination can be claimed within 14 days after the order who will need to explicitly communicate their decision of terminating the contract by e-mailing email@example.com .

7.1 WAO will communicate their decision on reimbursments and substitution of the entry ticket related to the event in case of postponement or cancellation.
7.2 Following the point 7.1, the client will not be able to claim a reimbursment from WAO either for the payment commissions or insurance and postage fees – in case this was selected by the client as a delivery method.
7.3 In case the event is meant to be a festival, the list of the artists appearing on the WAO website is approximative. The cancellation of one or more artist performance or their substitution will not be considered as a cancellation of the event – apart from the case of cancellation of the entire event inclusive of all performances and services by the organizer.
7.4 In any case, WAO will not replace the entry ticket in case it would be lost, damaged, destroyed, stolen or even just damaged to the point it will be impossible to read when showed by the client.

Our Membership of Event Protect provides certainty of our ability in the case of a cancellation / postponement / abandonment / curtailment of an event covered under the Event Protect Programme, to provide refunds directly to ticket holders in a fast and transparent way.
