WELCOME TO theCHIVE HEADQUARTERS! We at theCHIVE want to do everything we can to ensure that your time at our Headquarters is as enjoyable as possible. The following are the terms and conditions under which we offer tours of theCHIVE Headquarters (“CHIVE HQ”) (the “Tour”) . By registering for a Tour, you (or if on behalf of a minor, as a guardian or parent of such minor(s)) are entering into this Participant Agreement with Chive Media Group, LLC and agree to be bound by its terms (“Chive Media Group”, “we” or “us”). Please read these terms carefully before participating in the Tour.
How to Reserve Tickets: You may reserve tickets for the Tour at https://thechive.com/hq-tours.
All persons wishing to participate in the Tour must register for tickets in advance and pre-book the time and date of the entrance. Upon registering for the tour, you will receive a confirmation email with all Tour details, along with your ticket(s), and Tour expectations and guidelines. Such email constitutes written confirmation of your Tour and your ticket(s). We take no responsibility if you do not receive this email due to reasons outside of our control (e.g., spam filtering or junk email). The confirmation email may be presented at the CHIVE HQ entrance. It is your responsibility to check the accuracy of the details on your email confirmation as mistakes cannot always be rectified. Parking is not covered in ticketing.
Allocated Entry Time: You will be given the opportunity to select a date and time for arrival at CHIVE HQ for your Tour, and this will be shown on your email confirmation. You are asked to arrive on-time for your Tour, as Tours will start promptly at the times noted. Those who have missed their reserved time may join the next available tour time slot on the same day, subject to availability and at Chive Media Group’s sole discretion. If another time slot is not available on the same day, then you may re-book an additional time slot. We reserve the right to amend any Allocated Entry Times once it has been issued to you, but will endeavor to notify you as soon as we become aware that this is necessary.
Ticket Cancelation: Should you wish to cancel a Tour or your ticket, please notify us immediately, but no later than 24-hours prior to your Tour Date. You may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Failure to timely cancel within the 24-hour period will result in no refund. All service fees are non-refundable. Upon sending your request to cancel, the email confirmation and/or ticket(s) will become void.
