CONDITIONS OF THE RESERVATION SYSTEM
1. The reservation system in general

1.2. The customer has thus reserved the reservation to officially book the reserved media at a later date, however no later than 4 weeks before the start of the campaign.
These conditions for the reservation system are only applicable from the time of the offer/reservation and until the final booking or cancellation of the campaign, i.e. 4 weeks before campaign start.
2. Reservation expiry
2.1. RESERVATIONS AUTOMATICCALY EXPIRE 4 WEEKS BEFORE CAMPAIGN START, IN THE EVENT WHERE THE PARTIES HAVEN’T AGREED TO FINAL BOOKING.
2.2.AFA JCDecaux can initiate a request for final booking of the reservation in the period leading up to 4 weeks prior to the time of the reserved campaign start. This request is called "48 hours", which means that as a customer you get 48 hours (calculated on weekdays) to make a final booking decision or alternatively to waive a reservation. If AFA JCDecaux is not contacted within 48 hours of the request, the reservation will expire automatically, and the customer is therefore not entitled to the campaign period or further information.
