Detailed description of goods and services
We are an online ticketing service for events of all types. KTMP Events allows Site users and visitors (including those users’ and visitors’ agents) (“you” or “your”) to create an online profile for their event, manage all incoming payments and issue detailed tickets with barcodes for added security. KTMP Events provides this service in a manner which is quick to set up, simple to use and highly secure.
To book tickets through KTMP Events, please complete the automated booking process and submit your payment information to us in the prescribed manner. Our booking process will provide you with an opportunity to review the entire transaction, to correct any mistakes and to withdraw from the transaction before finally submitting your booking request.
The supply of tickets offered depends upon the availability of tickets for a relevant event. We may limit your booking to a specified number of persons to prevent unfair booking process.
The information submitted with your booking request will be processed as you have provided it to us. If you realise that an error has been made or that you need to change the information provided in the booking request, you should contact us immediately.
If no KTMP Events user account exists under the email address you provide when making your booking, a user account will be created automatically under that email address. An email will be sent to the email address explaining how to set a password for the account. This is done for your convenience and allows you to be able to retrieve your tickets at any point by logging into KTMP Events. This account will not be linked to any promotional mailing lists and will not be sent any unsolicited mail. If at any point you would like the account to be removed, please contact KTMP Events.

Details of all events (including the details of the relevant Organizer, venues and arrangements) for which tickets are offered will be as described on our Site. Descriptions of events are provided to us by the relevant Organizers. We do not endorse any of the events and we do not determine or control ticket prices or availability in respect of the events and can therefore not accept responsibility for any inaccuracy, unavailability, cancellations or changes in pricing that may occur. Please contact the relevant Organizer if you are dissatisfied with an event, for any reason whatsoever.
You will be required to provide your payment account details (i.e. credit card details) when submitting your booking request. Payment may be made via Payfast Services, Visa, MasterCard and/or an EFT.

The bank confirmation needs to clearly indicate the KTMP Events bank account details, as well as the correct amount for the booking, and the correct reference number. Note that payment into the KTMP Events bank account does not fulfill a booking. We require a payment confirmation before a booking can be fulfilled.

This does not apply to the service fee, which is always non-refundable.

In such a case the Organiser will be obligated to approve a refund, even if they have selected ‘No’ for the ‘Allow refunds’ option.

Where a refund is issued to a user due to the cancellation of an event, such refund will be issued to the ticket buyer using the same method of payment that was used to purchase the tickets. Where a credit card was used to make a refunded purchase, then the actual credit card used in the transaction will receive the credit for the refund.
If an Organiser elects to use a third party payment system, such as PayFast, PayU or Stripe the organiser will be liable for issuing the refund. KTMP Events will not be held responsible for issuing refunds if the ticket buyer used any of these payment methods.
KTMP Events does not issue refunds after an event has ended or while it is in progress.

Failure to make payment will be considered a breach of this agreement and may incur immediate cancellation of the vending agreement as well as legal action.
KTMP Events reserves the right to close ticket sales for a vendor at any time, and to suspend any further ticket sales at a particular vendor at any time. If there are any outstanding monies in respect of (1) above, those monies will become immediately payable by the vendor to KTMP Events.

Disclaimer of Warranties and Liabilities
The KTMP Events Services are provided to you subject to your statutory rights but are otherwise provided without any warranty and not subject to any condition, express or implied, except as specifically stated in the Site. We shall make reasonable efforts to ensure that requests for electronic debits and credits involving cards and bank accounts are processed in a timely manner.
We will endeavour to make payments to the Organiser as soon as possible, but we make no representations or warranties regarding the amount of time needed to complete processing because our services are largely dependent upon many factors beyond our control, such as, without being limited to, delays in the banking system or in card networks.
Whilst we will do our best to maintain the operation of our services, we do not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to the service and operation of the Site and mobile systems may be affected by numerous factors beyond our control. We shall not be liable for any delay or failure in the provision of our services or the working of our Site where such failure is due to factors beyond our reasonable control, save that we will use reasonable endeavours to fulfil our obligations hereunder.
Although we at all times attempt to ensure that the details of events offered on our Site are displayed and described accurately, we do not warrant same and disclaim to the maximum extent permitted by law any liability arising from any omissions or inaccuracies pertaining to such display and description.
We will not be held liable for any indirect, special or consequential losses of any kind whatsoever arising in connection with any booking (whether in contract, statute or delict) save to the extent that such liability is excluded by law.
You acknowledge that your access to the Site may be occasionally restricted to allow for repairs, maintenance or the introduction of new facilities or services. We will attempt to restore the Site as soon as we reasonably can.
Hiring of Equipment
Subject to availability Event Organisers may hire equipment from KTMP Events. These charges will be billed to your event, and deducted off your payout. If you cannot collect the equipment from us, and/or deliver this back to us, we will use a courier for this and invoice you for the costs involved. In the event of loss or damage of any of our equipment, the Event Organiser will be liable for the costs to replace the item/s damaged/ lost.
KTMP Events provides a platform for event organisers to create their own affiliate programs. As an event organiser you agree that the commission you stipulate is what KTMP Events will pay each affiliate for each ticket sold by the affiliate for your event. Commission is set by the event organiser and KTMP Events has no say in the decision of what commission will be given out. The commission can be between zero percent and 100 percent of the value of a ticket, or can be a fixed Rand amount greater than zero and less than the price of the cheapest ticket for the event.
KTMP Events manages all payments to affiliates, and we endeavour to pay out each affiliate the total amount owed to them at the end of each month. In the event of unforeseen circumstances which hinder the payment,KTMP Events accepts no responsibility for late payment to affiliates, and will endeavour to make payment as soon as possible. KTMP Events will deduct the total amount paid to affiliates from the final balance owed to the event organiser.
KTMP Events tracks all sales arising from affiliates using a cookie stored on the purchasers browser. This cookie will last 30 days from the time it is set, meaning that the purchaser has a maximum of 30 days to make a purchase. Any ticket sale made by the purchaser on KTMP Events after this time is not considered to be due to the affiliate, and the affiliate will accordingly not receive commission for that ticket sale.
All affiliate programs are unique, meaning if you want to sell tickets for events which have affiliate programs you will have to join that program. Joining one program does not automatically join you to other programs. Any purchase made through an affiliate link will only be tracked if that link is associated with the event for which the purchaser is purchasing a ticket.
KTMP Events can at any time remove you from an affiliate program and you will not receive commission. KTMP Events takes privacy very seriously and will remove you from our programs if we suspect any of the following, not limited to:
- Spamming of any sort
- Unfair sales practice
- Trying to trick our system
Should you have a complaint about any of our affiliates please contact us immediately.
