2 2 8 3 Booking, Delivery of Booked Artwork, Term 3.1 With an Artist account, you may be able to choose Venues on the ASFA Online Platform and request them for exhibiting your Artwork. In case the Venue agrees, such Artwork will then become Booked Artwork. 3.2 ASFA cannot guarantee the availability of exhibition space or interest in your Artwork by Venues on the Online Platform. Venues have 72 hours from the time you request a Booking to either confirm or cancel it. If no answer is received during this time the Booking is considered cancelled. 3.3 A Space For Art may also allow Venues to contact you via the Online Platform about exhibiting Artwork. If a Booking is requested for your Artwork via the Online Platform, you will be required to either confirm or reject the Booking within 72 hours of when the Booking is requested (as determined by ASFA) or the Booking request might be cancelled. 3.4 When a Booking is requested for your Artwork via the Online Platform, we will share with you (i) the type of Venue who has requested the Booking, (ii) a link to the Venue s ASFA Account profile page, if available, or picture of the Venue or (iii) information about the Venue where your Artwork will be exhibiting.

For the avoidance of doubt, this means that, unless specifically agreed otherwise, you agree to deliver all Booked Artwork yourself, at your own expense, at the Venue at the agreed time ASFA might offer to coordinate and organise free of charge transport for Booked Artwork. Such transport may be performed by third-parties or by ASFA. Nevertheless, Artist shall be responsible for all aspects of the transport at all times, including checking sufficient insurance cover, if any, and deciding whether or not to use the transport method suggested by ASFA In the case that a third-party transports Booked Artwork for Artist, Artist shall assert any claims relating to the transportation against such transport company, especially for any damages to Booked Artwork.
3 In the case that ASFA transports Booked Artwork for Artist, ASFA shall only be liable within the limits provided herein, even if the value of Booked Artwork is above that limit, see especially 3 of the General T&Cs In case the Artist alters or modifies the Booked Artwork prior to delivery after the Booking has been confirmed, or the online description of the Booked Artwork is wrong or misleading (for example the size of the Booked Artwork was substantially incorrectly described), the Artist agrees that the Booked Artwork might be rejected by the Venue on such ground. In this case, Artist is responsible for the transport of Booked Artwork and shall bear all costs and expenses related to the delivery and/or return transport of the Booked Artwork, even if ASFA had offered free of charge transport. 4 Exhibition, Access to Booked Artwork, Right to Sell Booked Artwork 4.1 The Artist shall deliver all Booked Artwork in accordance with the Agreement, including any specifications and requirements provided by ASFA to ensure the proper delivery of such Booked Artwork.

Artist shall give ASFA and Venue the information mentioned in 7.3 of the General T&Cs, and Artist shall not sell the Artwork or make any other binding agreements with a potential buyer before the term mentioned in 7.3 of the General T&Cs is expired.
