Terms and Conditions

Terms and Conditions for the Quiz Olympiad by the International Quizzing Association (IQA):

The terms ‘holder’, ‘bearer’, and ‘purchaser’ refer to you—the individual purchasing tickets for the Quiz Olympiad. Conversely, ‘our’, ‘us’, ‘we’, ‘issuer’, ‘provider’, and ‘promoter’ denote the organisers of the Quiz Olympiad, i.e., the IQA.

By purchasing, holding, or using tickets for the Quiz Olympiad, you consent to these terms and conditions set by the IQA. Should you disagree with any part of these terms or the associated risks, please refrain from buying tickets or attempting entry to the event premises. The IQA retains the authority to modify these terms and conditions at any time without notice. Such changes will be updated here and apply from your ticket purchase date. Ticket prices are final and non-negotiable.

Fair Play: We strictly prohibit cheating. Any evidence of such behaviour will lead to immediate disqualification and potential bans from future events.

Intellectual Property Respect: In recognition of the considerable effort and dedication of our organisers, question setters, and verifiers, we strictly prohibit the copying, sharing, or distributing of Quiz Olympiad questions outside of the event. These questions represent the intellectual property of the IQA and are available for purchase post-event. Violation of this policy may result in disqualification and bans from future events.

Social Media: While sharing your event experiences online is encouraged, respect the IQA’s intellectual property rights and avoid disclosing confidential information.

Ticket Purchase: Your ticket grants a revocable license to attend the Quiz Olympiad from 7th – 10th November 2024. This license can be revoked by the IQA at any discretion, without prior notice or compensation, denying entry. Official tickets are available solely through our website; purchasing from other sources risks them being counterfeit or void.

Photography and Video: The IQA may capture event images or footage for promotional use. By attending, you permit the use of your likeness in all media forms.

Equipment Restrictions: Bringing equipment capable of recording or transmitting any event material is strictly prohibited. Unauthorized equipment and recordings may be confiscated or destroyed by the IQA.

Event Cancellation: Should the Quiz Olympiad be entirely cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, the IQA may reschedule, partially or fully refund tickets, or offer no refund, at their sole discretion.

Force Majeure: In events beyond our control (e.g., natural disasters, government actions), the IQA may offer refunds, reschedule, or provide alternatives, with their decision being final.

Refunds and Cancellations: All ticket sales are final and non-refundable. However, in exceptional circumstances where a refund is granted by the IQA, such refunds will be subject to administrative fees. These fees cover the costs associated with the processing of tickets and refunds. Please note, refunds are not available for rescheduled events, and any refunds granted will only cover the face value of the ticket(s), excluding additional fees such as shipping, processing, and handling charges.

Wristbands: Upon entry to the Quiz Olympiad, attendees will be issued a wristband corresponding to their ticket type, which must be worn at all times. These wristbands are essential for gaining access to quiz events and, where applicable, food services. Only those with the appropriate wristbands will be allowed entry to specific events and meals. Non-quizzers who have purchased a non-quiz package will receive a distinct wristband granting them access to food services but excluding them from quiz event entry. It is important to note that access to quiz events is strictly reserved for those who have paid and possess the correct wristband. Individuals without a wristband, or with an incorrect wristband, will not be permitted entry into the quiz events. If your wristband is lost or damaged, please immediately inform a member of the IQA team for a replacement. Compliance with the wristband policy ensures a smooth and enjoyable experience for all participants.

Alcohol Consumption: Attendees must adhere to local laws regarding alcohol. The IQA is not liable for monitoring or enforcing these regulations.

Data Collection: Ticket purchase permits the IQA to collect and store personal information for event administration.

Liability: The IQA is not responsible for personal, or financial damages, or lost items at the event. We maintain a zero-tolerance policy towards drugs and objectionable behaviour, leading to immediate event expulsion.

Accessibility: Contact us with any special requirements or concerns about event effects before purchasing tickets.

Disputes: Purchasing a ticket waives the right to chargeback claims. In disputes, the IQA’s decision is final, with unresolved issues possibly referred to an independent arbiter.
