If for any reason on Out of the Box Fun’s part (including but not limited to equipment malfunction), Out of the Box Fun is unable to start your event at the agreed upon time or continue your event, Out of the Box Fun will compensate you for any lost service time first by providing additional time up to 30 minutes if your venue permits or if your venue does not permit or the event has ended, a prorated refund of $50 for each 30 minutes lost.  No compensation shall be made for delay caused by the Client once the staff has arrived at the event location noted on the contract whether due to incorrect address, insufficient power, unclear instructions, lack of hotspot connection or otherwise. No compensation shall be made for idle time or lost time resulting from the Client’s express permission for the Out of the Box Fun staff to leave before the service time is over or for guests choosing not to use the photo booth.
