Thank you for your question.
They can only take you to court if they can prove that you contractually bound yourself to their conditions by parking in accordance with the terms and conditions displayed at the site. If you didn't know about the conditions ther is no contract and you can ignore them. Their failure to respond to your correspondence only exacerbates the fact that they haven't followed due process.
My experience is that they will eventually give up and go away.
I hope this helps. Please remember to leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
