3.

Tickets may not be resold by a third party, nor offered to third parties in the context of a commercial relationship.
A show ticket cannot be reimbursed, even in the case of loss or theft, returned or exchanged except in the case of the cancellation of a show. This reimbursement shall only be in favour of the initial purchaser in exchange for the return of a ticket.
4. Tickets are reserved at the moment the booking form is registered, or during the telephone booking. They are sent after receipt of payment. The booking can be cancelled by SHERPA.BE if the tickets are not paid for within the time limit specified for the order.
