- Delivery of Artwork will usually be by a service which requires a signature (this usually must be someone aged 18 or over), on receipt. Your signature, or that of someone on your behalf, confirms receipt of the Artwork but also the state of the package received.
- When you receive your order it is your responsibility to carefully examine both the package (before it is opened) and the Artwork for any damage. If there is any damage whatsoever or if, for example, a package shows signs of damage before it is opened, we highly recommend that you email us at email@example.com (we also recommend taking images and video of the packaging and the artwork when received).
- The Gallery, its various platforms and Website brings together Buyers and Artists from around the world. This applies if you are buying from an Artist who is located in a country which is either not your country of residence and/or where you want your Artwork to be shipped – we refer to this as international sales.
- Our prices are displayed in British pounds (GBP) and so you will be paying using GBP.
- Currency exchange rates and charges are your responsibility so you may wish to check this with your own payment provider before placing your order.
- Since the various platforms and Website brings together Buyers and Artists from around the world, delivery of Artwork to an international address (one which is located in a different country to the one in which the Artist is based in) is at your own expense and risk and so we always advise that you to check directly with customs officials in the country where any delivery address is located so that you understand what duties or other charges may be imposed if you ask goods to be delivered to that country.
- You are solely responsible for complying with any import laws and requirements which apply to the country where the delivery address is located.
- In addition to the actual purchase price of the Artwork, you will be solely and fully responsibility for any and all tax/duty costs, fees, liabilities, handling charges, shipping costs, insurance which may arise or apply to your order and delivery.
- This means that the Gallery will not be responsible for any costs incurred as a result of any delivery of Artwork to you.
- With all international sales we also recommend that you - check the following i) unit of weights and measurements used (for example imperial inches or metric centimetres); ii) remember to allow extra time for delivery of your Artwork
- If you have any queries about the Artwork or shipping and delivery, please contact the gallery directly using the details they provide on the Website – they will be happy to deal with any questions you have.
- Consumer rights legislation means that Consumers (individuals buying wholly or mainly outside their trade, business, craft or profession) who buy at a distance (such as via a Website) have the right to cancel some orders for purchase. If this applies, then you usually have 14 days from the date you receive your order to change your mind, cancel the order and, where applicable, return the items to the Gallery having obtained at your own cost insurance and crated the artwork in an appropriate manner, to obtain a refund. The gallery is committed to ensuring that they abide by your rights. For any questions please do contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org

A standard condition report will be made up receiving the artwork.
