3 Car Park Terms and Conditions

(a) By using your Season Ticket you are agreeing to be bound by and to comply with the car park terms and conditions on display at the Nominated Car Park(s) and available on our website https://www.ncp.co.uk/help-centre/ncp-car-park-terms-conditions/ (as updated from time to time).

(b) Where you are contracting other than as a consumer and are purchasing a Season Ticket for use by your employees, officers, partners or agents, you shall ensure that, prior to their use of the Nominated Car Park(s), they have agreed to comply with the car park terms and conditions on display in the Nominated Car Park(s) and available on our website https://www.ncp.co.uk/help-centre/ncp-car-park-terms-conditions/ (as updated from time to time). On NCP’s request, you shall provide us with evidence of such agreement.

4 How the contract is formed

(a) Online: If you place an Order online, you will be making an “offer” to us to purchase a Season Ticket. After placing your Order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your Order. Please note that this does not mean that your Order has been accepted. All Orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we shall confirm our acceptance to you by sending you a confirmation email. Your contract with us will only be formed when we send the confirmation email. As the HS1 car parks are operated by ANPR you will not receive a physical ticket. We therefore recommend you retain the confirmation email.

Our website contains a large number of different season tickets. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the season tickets on our website may be accidentally, incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the season ticket that you have ordered online, we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the season ticket at the correct price or cancelling your Order. We will not process your Order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the Order process, we will treat the Order as cancelled and notify you in writing by post or email. If we mistakenly accept and process your Order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may cancel the Season Ticket and refund to you any sums that you have paid to us in respect of that Order.

If we are unable to offer you a Season Ticket for your Nominated Car Park(s), we may contact you to offer a suitable alternative.

5 Consumer rights

If you are contracting as a consumer (ie you are not making this contract in the course of business), you may cancel the contract at any time within fourteen days, beginning the day after you received your confirmation email so long as you have not started to use the Season Ticket. If you have started to use the Season Ticket, you waive this right to cancel. If you decide to cancel your contract, you will receive a full refund of the price paid by you for your Season Ticket. To cancel the contract, you must inform us by email to [email protected] Please note that this right to a refund does not affect your statutory rights.

6 Non-transferability

Your Season Ticket is personal to you and is non-transferable.

7 Price and payment

(a) Price: If you are a consumer, the price for the Season Ticket shall be inclusive of VAT. If you are not a consumer, the price for the Season Ticket shall be exclusive of VAT.

 

8 Your Season Ticket

(a) Please remember that your Season Ticket does not guarantee you a space, entitle you to park in areas marked as reserved (whether for premier bay users or otherwise) unless indicated in your Order or confer upon you any element of exclusivity in or over any part of the Nominated Car Park(s).

 (b) Your Season Ticket will permit you to park one vehicle only in the Nominated Car Park(s) at any one time. You must not, at any time, use the Nominated Car Park(s) as a storage facility for your vehicle or conduct any activity in connection with the selling, hiring, disposal of vehicles, provision of goods or services or any other business at the Nominated Car Park(s) without prior written permission from us, failing which we shall be entitled to immediately terminate all Season Tickets that you have with us at that time.

(c) Once your Season Ticket has been used to exit your vehicle from a Nominated Car Park, it cannot be used again to exit a different vehicle, which overlaps any part the parking session of the first vehicle. If you do attempt to use your Season Ticket in this manner, or if you attempt to use an expired or cancelled Season Ticket when exiting a Nominated Car Park, you will be charged at the prevailing daily tariff rate at the Nominated Car Park for the full length of the parking session. Please note that we reserve the right to review historical usage of your Season Ticket alongside CCTV footage to determine whether you have misused your Season Ticket and also pursue you for any loss that we have suffered as a result of any such misuse.

Because the car parks use ANPR technology if you replace your vehicle during the Period you must notify us of the new vehicle registration mark before using your replacement vehicle in that Nominated Car Park.

 (d) The opening hours of your Nominated Car Park(s) are on display at the Nominated Car Park(s). We shall not be responsible for granting access to or egress from the Nominated Car Park(s) outside of these opening hours.

9 Cancellation, renewals, refund policy and replacements

(a) Cancellation by you

If you are a consumer and you did not cancel during the first 14 days of the contract you may cancel in the following circumstances. If you are not a consumer you may only cancel in the following circumstances:

(i) Where you have not used the Season Ticket at all – we will issue you with a full refund, even after the Commencement Date.

(ii) Weekly Season Tickets where you have used a portion of the Period – there will be no refund due.

(iii) Monthly, Quarterly, Six-Monthly or Annual Season Tickets – We will refund in respect of unused portions of shorter season ticket periods. For example, if you have bought an Annual Season Ticket and you use the Season Ticket for three months and a day, you will receive a refund for the Annual Season Ticket, less the cost of a Quarterly Season Ticket and the cost of a Weekly Season Ticket.

 (b) Cancellation for breach We may cancel the contract with you at any time on notice to you if you breach any of these Terms and Conditions, the car park terms and conditions for the Nominated Car Park(s), or if you misuse your Season Ticket in any way, such as (for example but without limitation): (i) attempting to extract two vehicles from any one car park on the same Season Ticket; (ii) attempting to transfer or sell your Season Ticket to another person; or (iii) allowing another person to use your Season Ticket without our written consent.

(c) Closure of your Nominated Car Park

If you hold a Season Ticket and your Nominated Car Park closes for any reason and we are unable to offer or you choose not to accept any alternative car park suggested by us, either of us may cancel the contract. In such circumstance we will endeavour to give you 1 month's notice or such notice as we are reasonably able to provide in the circumstance.

 (d) Refunds Upon receipt of notice from you, we will (if applicable) reimburse you by a payment into the account from which payment for the Season Ticket was originally made or nominated bank account, in respect of any amounts to which you are entitled. Any refund will be calculated in accordance with this section 9 (Cancellations, renewals, refund policy and replacements) and will be based upon the unused portion of the relevant Period from the date upon which a valid notice of termination becomes effective, to the date upon which your Season Ticket expires.

You will not receive any refund where we cancel the contract as a result of your breach or misuse of your Season Ticket.
