If this is the case, we will try where possible to give you advance notice of the alteration. If you are a consumer, and the alteration means that you no longer wish to attend the event or purchase the relevant tickets, you will be entitled to cancel your Order without charge.

sent an Order Acceptance.

The College will normally verify prices before sending the Order Acceptance.
Where the correct price is lower than the price stated on the site you will be charged the lower
amount, unless paragraph 8.5 below applies. If a price is higher than the price stated on the site, the College may either (a) contact you to see whether or not you wish to go ahead with the Order; or (b) cancel your Order and notify you of the cancellation, in which case we will refund the price already paid by you (if any).

incurred in making a payment will be borne by you in addition to the price due to us.
8.7. The College takes reasonable care to ensure that its online payment facility is available and
functioning at all times, but cannot guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to such
facility, nor can we guarantee that the facility is virus or error free. We also try to ensure that your
payments are processed promptly, but it is often difficult to predict the amount of time needed to
complete processing because it is dependent upon many factors outside of our control, such as delays in the banking system or in card networks. Access to the Online Payment facility may be
occasionally restricted to allow for repairs, maintenance or the introduction of new facilities or
services. We will attempt to provide reasonable notice of any scheduled interruptions to such facility and will do what we can to restore the facility as soon as reasonably possible.
