Accordingly, the Contractor reserves the absolute right to re- allocate any other advertiser booked in the building which is subject to a domination. The Contractor will give not less than two months written notice to any affected advertiser prior to the first scheduled in charge date for such affected advertiser. The Contractor will provide alternative advertising sites to any affected advertiser. The Contractor is not liable for any loss or damage (reputational or otherwise) which may arise or which the affected advertiser claims it has or may suffer and in no circumstances will any refunds be provided.
