10.1. If the Facility Owner wishes to suspend access to its Facility(ies), for any reason whatsoever, the Facility Owner must provide notice of such a suspension to Appmit before the end of a calendar month.

The User agrees to the fees that may be charged by a Facility Owner in respect of a ticket when entering a Facility and agrees to pay the fees applicable to the User’s use of the Facility upon exiting the Facility. In respect of tickets, the services are rendered in full before payment occurs and therefore the services rendered in respect of a ticket are not refundable.

In the event of a failed purchase of a ticket, the User will remain liable to the Facility Owner for the fees and Appmit will represent the fees for payment against your payment information. In the event that the payment continues to fail, Appmit or the Facility Owner will contact you in respect of the fees that are owed.

12.5. Additional charges: if you cancel a payment by giving instruction to your bank to return your funds, and they do so, you will be liable to us for any penalty which we incur to that bank or other payment processor.
12.6.

You similarly undertake to pay any levy that may arise because of the currencies differing.
13.1. Refunds of permit purchases made may be given at the discretion of the Facility Owner.
