Use of the Services requires one or more compatible devices, Internet access (fees may apply), and certain software (fees may apply), and may require obtaining updates or upgrades from time to time.

These fees may vary based on individual agreements between ShoCast and certain Creators. The fees charged to Customers may include certain other charges, including without limitation, facility fees, royalties, taxes, processing fees and fulfillment fees. Certain fees are meant, on average, to defray certain costs incurred by ShoCast, but may in some cases include an element of profit and in some cases include an element of loss. ShoCast does not control (and thus cannot disclose) fees levied by your bank and/or credit card company, including fees for purchasing tickets and registrations in foreign currencies or from foreign persons. Be sure to check with your bank or credit card company prior to engaging in a transaction to understand all applicable fees, credit card surcharges and currency conversion rates.
Refunds. Customers may request refunds at any time by contacting the ShoCast team at email@example.com and refunds requested after the Shows take place are only allowed in limited circumstances at our own discretion. If granted, we will issue a refund of the ticket price you paid (or, for a discounted ticket, then instead the discounted ticket price paid), any service fees, and any additional add-ons or upgrades (such as parking).
If a refund is issued, it will be processed to the original method of payment used at time of purchase. We cannot issue a refund to a different credit or debit card (this includes refund requests made through the self-service option). If your credit card or debit card number has changed, but is for the same account (e.g., a new card has been issued for the same account), the refund will be processed to that account.
