Although Admission cannot monitor the conduct of users off the Site, it is also a violation of these Terms to use any information obtained from this Site in order to harass, abuse, or harm another person, or in order to contact, advertise to, solicit or sell to any Site user without their prior explicit consent.

Links and Search Results
The Site may automatically produce search results that reference or link to third party sites throughout the World Wide Web. Admission has no control over these sites or the content within them. Admission cannot guarantee, represent or warrant that the content contained in those third party sites is accurate, legal and/or inoffensive. Admission does not endorse the content of any third party site, nor do we warrant that they will not contain viruses or otherwise impact your computer.

You must obtain our prior written consent to make commercial offers of any kind, whether by advertising, solicitations, links, or any other form of communication.

We will investigate and take appropriate legal action against anyone who violates this provision, including without limitation, removing the offending communication from the Site and barring such violators from use of the Site. Please note that Admission has entered into agreements with certain sports teams for whom Admission hosts websites that are designed to allow such sports teams' season ticket holders to sell individual game tickets from their season ticket packages through such websites (“Season Ticket Sale Sites”). Some of these Season Ticket Sale Sites can be found through this Site. Nothing in this paragraph shall prohibit the sale or purchase of tickets through the Season Ticket Sale Sites, as long as such sales and purchases are conducted pursuant to the terms that apply to the Season Ticket Sale Sites.

Access and Interference
You agree that you will not use any robot, spider or other automatic device, process or means to access the Site. You agree that you will not use any robot, spider or other automatic or manual device, process or means to give yourself or others acting for your benefit or on your behalf the ability to navigate the Site or purchase tickets on the Site faster than users of the Site who use a standard commercial browser and manually enter on their computers all information needed to navigate the Site and purchase tickets. You agree that you will use no robot, spider, program or other automatic or manual device, process or means to circumvent, avoid or defeat any security measures or systems used on the Site, including but not limited to the “CAPTCHA” system used as part of the Site's ticket purchasing process. The CAPTCHA system requires the retyping of characters on your computer screen. You agree that the retyping will only be done manually by you on the keyboard for the computer that you are using to access the Site. Nor shall you use any manual process to monitor or copy our web pages or the content contained thereon or for any other unauthorized purpose without our prior expressed written permission. You agree that you will not use any device, software or routine that interferes with the proper working of the Site nor shall you attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Site.

You agree that you will not access, reload or "refresh" transactional event or ticketing pages, or make any other request to transactional servers, more than once during any three second interval. You agree that you will not copy, reproduce, alter, modify, create derivative works, or publicly display any content (except for your own personal, non-commercial use) from the Site without the prior, express written permission of Admission.

Unauthorized Use of the Site
Any illegal or unauthorized use of the Site shall constitute a violation of these Terms of Use. You do not have permission to access the Site in any way that violates, directly or indirectly, these Terms of Use. Illegal or unauthorized use of the Site includes, but is not limited to, using the Site to facilitate illegal ticket sales, unauthorized framing of or linking to the Site, or unauthorized use of any robot, spider or other automated process on the Site. It shall also be a violation of these Terms of Use: (a) for any individual (or group of individuals acting in concert) to request more than 1000 pages of the Site in any twenty-four hour period (hereafter referred to as “Abusive Use”); (b) for any individual (or group of individuals acting in concert) to reload or “refresh” transactional event or ticketing pages, or make any other request to transactional servers, more than once during any three second interval; or (c) to use any passcode or password, regardless of whether or not such password or passcode is unique, to participate in a pre-sale or other offer on the Site if you are not the original recipient of such passcode or password (i.e., if you did not receive the passcode or password from Admission, or from the fan club or other organization with whom Admission is working to enable such pre-sale or offer) or if your participation in such pre-sale or other offer is inconsistent with such pre-sale's or offer's terms.

Suspected Violation of these Terms of Use or Law; Injunctive, Equitable Relief, and Liquidated Damages
Violations of these Terms of Use, including Unauthorized Use of the Site, may be investigated and appropriate legal action may be taken, including without limitation civil, criminal and injunctive redress. You understand and agree that in Admission's sole discretion, and without prior notice, Admission may terminate and block your access to the Site or to Admission’s other services, cancel your ticket order and/or tickets acquired through your ticket order, refuse to honour pending and future ticket purchases made from all credit card accounts or online accounts Admission believes may be associated with you, cancel a ticket or ticket order associated with any person acting or believed to be acting in concert with you, cancel your ticket postings, remove any unauthorized User Content or exercise any other remedy available, if Admission believes that your conduct or the conduct of any person with whom Admission believes you act in concert, or the User Content you provide, or any resale of such tickets purchased through Admission, violates or is inconsistent with these Terms or the law, or violates the rights of Admission, a client of Admission or another user of the Site. Violating any limitations or terms on the Site, including but not limited to utilizing automated means to process or place ticket orders or ordering a number of tickets that exceeds the stated limit will be deemed to be a violation of these Terms. If we are unable to verify or authenticate any information or tickets you provide during any registration, ordering, purchase, ticket posting, sale, authentication, delivery, payment or remittance process, or any other process, or if we are no longer able to verify or authorize your credit card or bank account information, your tickets may be cancelled, we may refuse to honour all pending and future ticket purchases made on such credit card accounts and/or on any online accounts associated with such credit card accounts, and you may be prohibited from using the Site.

You agree that monetary damages may not provide a sufficient remedy to Admission for violations of these Terms and you consent to injunctive or other equitable relief for such violations.

You agree that Abusive Use of the Site, as defined above, causes damage and harm to Admission in the form of, among other things, impaired goodwill, lost sales, and increased expenses associated with responding to Abusive Use of the Site. You further agree that monetary damages for Abusive Use of the Site are difficult to ascertain and that proof of monetary damages for Abusive Use would be costly and difficult to calculate. Accordingly you agree that liquidated damages are warranted for Abusive Use. Therefore, you agree that if you, or others acting in concert with you, alone or collectively request more than 1,000 pages of the Site in any twenty-four hour period, you, and those acting in concert with you, will be jointly and severally liable for liquidated damages in the amount of twenty-five cents ($0.25) per page request each time that a page request is made after that first 1000 during that twenty-four hour period. You also agree that this will be the measure of damages for any Abusive Use that occurred prior to this provision of these Terms of Use being in effect.
