Battle of the Suits tickets cannot be redeemed against cash, credits, or any other such benefits.
The RCODA has the right to investigate any suspected violation of the Battle of the Suits ticketing Terms and Conditions. In case of any conflicts, the findings of the RCODA will be deemed final. To be clear, the issuer will remain the final arbiter in cases of such dispute.
The 'event service' will be deemed to have been delivered in its entirety as soon as Battle of the Suits begins on 11 May 2023. From that point, refund requests will not be accepted.
If, on 11 May 2023 at 6.00pm, access to any necessary area of the venue (Cordis Hotel) is not possible due to transport interruption, impeded access, organiser policies, weather-related problems, emergencies, venue shutdown/evacuation or any other reason, eligibility for refunds shall not apply.
If Battle of the Suits is cancelled or postponed in its entirety due to any unforeseen circumstances, RCODA has the sole and absolute right to:
i) reschedule the event, or
ii) issue a partial/full refund, or
iii) not issue any refunds.
The decision of the issuer in such cases shall be deemed final and binding.
If Battle of the Suits is cancelled due to any factors or causes not in the control of the issuer, the issuer will offer a partial or full refund, or, postpone the event, or, provide a comparable ' make good' option. These factors will be inclusive of, but not limited to, natural disasters, state, or local Government announcements, strikes, venue issues, and the like. The decision of the RCODA will be considered final.
If Battle of the Suits is rescheduled to another date, eligibility for refunds shall not apply. If the event is cancelled, the refund, if issued, will include only the value of the ticket(s). The bearer cannot, under any circumstances, claim refunds on shipping fees, processing fees, handling fees, and other such charges.
Foreign exchange fluctuation losses incurred at the time of refunds, will be the responsibility of the purchaser.
All ticket sales are deemed as Final Transactions. There will be no ticket returns or exchanges.
By purchasing Battle of the Suits tickets, consent is granted to the RCODA to collect certain information about the purchaser (name, email address, physical address, mobile number ) for verification and storage.

The purchaser agrees to forego claims on all types of surcharges (full or in part) and all claims and entitlements related to it.
