7. YOUR RIGHTS IF WE BREACH THE CONTRACT

If an event outside of our control causes a delay in us performing our obligations under the contract, or completely prevents us from performing any of our obligations, then, where possible, we will contact you to let you know and we will do what we reasonably can to resolve the issue.
7.2 Our right to cancel for delays or breaches outside of our control. We reserve the right to cancel the contract between us if we do not think there is a reasonable possibility of us being able to perform our obligations in the way we have agreed due to an event outside of our control. If we cancel the contract for this reason then we will refund you the charges you have paid. We will not have any further liability to you.
7.3 If there is something wrong with the headset you have hired. If the headphones you have hired are faulty then please speak to one of our staff at the event. If there is a fault with your headset then we will exchange it for you free of charge.
7.4 If we cannot replace a faulty headset. In the unlikely event that we can’t exchange the headset for a suitable replacement, you may leave the event and claim a refund of the charges for that headset from us. The refund will take into account the amount of use you have had out of the headphones before they became faulty. Please contact us as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can investigate and, if applicable, issue you with a refund. If you booked as a group, you will only receive a refund for those headphones which were faulty and could not be replaced.
7.5 We do not have to replace or refund misused headphones. We reserve the right to refuse to replace or refund headphones which are faulty as a result of misuse by you or a member of your party. We may also make you pay to repair or replace damaged headphones (please see section 5.1.2 for more information).
7.6 If we do not provide the headphones as agreed. If sections 7.1 to 7.5 do not apply, and we have not cancelled the contract under section 3, then you can contact us for a refund if we have not been able to provide the headphones as agreed. A refund will not be available if we have provided the headphones but you have not collected them.
8.1 Our rights to terminate. In addition to our cancellation rights elsewhere in these terms, we can end the contract with you and claim any compensation due to us if:

8.1.3 You, or another person you have made a booking for, breaches any of the obligations in section 5.
8.1.4 We terminate any other contract between you and us due to your breach of that contract’s terms.
9.1 We don't compensate you for all losses you suffer. We're responsible for losses you suffer which are caused by us breaking this contract except where the loss is:
9.1.1 Unexpected. It was not obvious that it would happen and nothing you said to us before we accepted your booking meant we should have expected it (so, in the law, the loss was unforeseeable).
9.1.2 Caused by a delaying event outside our control. As long as we have taken the steps set out in the section 7.1.
9.1.3 Avoidable. Something you could have avoided by taking reasonable action, including following our reasonable instructions.

10.2 You can go to court. These terms are governed by English law and wherever you live you can bring claims against us in the English courts. If you live in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland, you can also bring claims against us in the courts of the country you live in. We can claim against you in the courts of the country you live in.
11. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
11.2 We charge interest on late payments. If we're unable to collect any payment you owe us then we charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 2% a year above the Bank of England base rate from time to time. This interest accrues on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You pay us the interest together with any overdue amount.
11.3 We can transfer our contract with you, so that a different organisation is responsible for supplying your service. We'll tell you in writing if this happens and we'll ensure that the transfer won't affect your rights under the contract.
11.4 You can only transfer your contract with us to someone else if we agree to this. We have total discretion on whether to agree or not.
11.5 Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. Nobody else can enforce it and neither of us will need to ask anybody else to sign-off on ending or changing it.
11.6 If a court invalidates some of this contract, the rest of it will still apply. If a court or other authority decides that some of these terms are unlawful, the rest will continue to apply.
11.7 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. We might not immediately chase you for not doing something (like paying) or for doing something you're not allowed to, but that doesn’t mean we can't do it later.
