Terms and Conditions
TERMS & CONDITIONS
1.1 These are the terms and conditions on which you join us on a THE EMPOURIUM Game Experience (“the Experience”). We hold the right to amend or vary these terms and conditions including any of the contents of the website from time to time at our sole discretion without prior notice.
1.2 Please read these terms carefully before you submit your booking to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide the Experience to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information.
1.3 Please note that, if you are making the booking on behalf of others in your group, it is your responsibility to ensure that these additional players agree to these terms and are in receipt of all relevant information relating to the booking. THE EMPOURIUM shall not be responsible if members of your group are unable to participate in an Experience as a result of you failing to provide them with all the relevant information.

2.3 If we have to contact you, we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address provided to us in your order.
OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
3.1 Our acceptance of your booking will take place when your payment is processed successfully, and you reach the booking confirmation page, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. We will also send you an email confirmation.
3.2 If we are unable to accept your booking, for example because of limitations on our resources, we will inform you of this in writing and issue you a refund.
3.3 We will assign a booking reference to your booking and tell you what it is when we accept your booking, and include it in the booking confirmation email. It will help us if you can tell us the booking reference whenever you contact us about your booking.
4.1 We will deliver the Experience to you on the date specified in the booking confirmation email that we sent you.
4.2 You acknowledge that it is your responsibility to contact us regarding the suitability of our games for any health or disability issues that you may be concerned about.
4.3 Please note that, unfortunately, no-one under the age of eighteen (18) can participate in Beer Pong at any time. Additionally, our venues are fully licensed and as such age restrictions can sometimes apply at different times, please check the FAQ section of the website for further information. You will not be entitled to a refund for places not filled as a result of these age restrictions.
YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL OR CHANGE YOUR B2C OR B2B BOOKING
5.1 Where you have booked and paid for an Experience, or made an Experience and table paid booking together under one booking, you will not be due any refund should you cancel your booking. As we are selling you a leisure activity, this means there is no statutory cooling off period as there usually is when you buy a service on-line. If you wish to cancel a table booking without any associated Experience booking, we will refund the table booking paid, unless your table booking is part of a ticketed special event in which case no refund will be made. If due to unforeseen and serious circumstances a rearranged booking will not sufficiently resolve the enquiry, the General Manager has the discretionary authority to issue a voucher for the equivalent value with an expiry date no more than 30 days after the date of the original booking
5.2 Re-scheduling your booking may be possible, but only at the discretion of the THE EMPOURIUM venue general manager. In all circumstances, your request to re-schedule a booking must be made more than 24 hours prior to the time of the original booking, and any re-scheduled booking must be within 30 days’ of your original booking. If, for whatever reason, we are unable to accommodate your booking on an alternative date, or if you give us less than 24 hours’ notice of your request to reschedule a booking, you will not be due a refund.
OUR RIGHT TO CANCEL OR AMEND YOUR BOOKING
6.1 In certain circumstances, we may need to cancel your Experience. If we do so we will use reasonable endeavours to contact you as soon as possible.
6.2 Similarly, we may make changes to the Experience such that it differs from that as advertised when you booked. If the changes we make are significant, we will use reasonable endeavours to contact you as soon as possible. In such circumstances, should you not wish to proceed with your booking, you can reschedule within 30 days of the original booking date.
6.3 In the circumstances set out in 6.3.1 to 6.3.3 we may cancel this agreement and you shall not be due a refund:
6.3.1 if, in the opinion of any of THE EMPOURIUM’s staff, you or any participants are behaving in an aggressive, abusive or threatening way towards either THE EMPOURIUM’s staff or any other customers; or
6.3.2 you or any participants do not participate in the Experience in accordance with the safety rules and advice provided to you by members of our staff prior to, or during, the Experience.

13.3 Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
13.4 If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
