Artsadd ("Artsadd" or "We") empowers the world's artists to earn money from their artwork by making it immediately available for sale as a variety of products - without giving up control of their rights.

Whether an artist, a customer, or even if you're just browsing, please respect the intellectual property rights of all the works you see or buy on Artsadd.

(a) Two shop types are available on Artsadd site. First, there are shops designed and operated by Artsadd itself ("Artsadd Shop(s)") and shops designed and operated by independent shop owners ("Partner Shop(s)"). Information about the owner of any shop is available as a linked page in each shop.
(b) Independent shop owners of Partner Shops are solely responsible for the products and designs offered in those shops, the design of those shops, and the advertising of the articles offered. Artsadd does not use designs or products of shop owners until a customer places an order that includes one of those designs or products.
4. Product Sales
(a) By placing an order using Artsadd site and service, a customer makes a binding offer for a contract of sale or, as the case may be, a contract for work and materials with Artsadd only (no contract exists between the customer and any applicable shop owner). Artsadd sends an order confirmation via e-mail to the customer. The order confirmation is not an acceptance of the offer, but only acknowledges that the order was received. The offer is only accepted when Artsadd ships the ordered product to the customer and confirms the shipment to the customer in a second e-mail. Artsadd cannot guarantee the continued availability of any products or designs found on its site.
(b) Information, drawings, figures, technical data, specifications of weight, measurements and services contained in brochures, catalogues, newsletters, ads, or price lists are purely informational. Artsadd cannot guarantee the correctness of this information, and if there is any inconsistency between the information described above and the information in an order confirmation email, the order confirmation email controls.
(c) Artsadd reserves the right to reject orders for any reason or no reason. If Artsadd rejects an order, it will notify the customer.
(d) Artsadd's performance of an order is completed when the shipment provider completes delivery to the customer's address, according to the records of the shipment provider. If there is an interruption of delivery, and Artsadd cannot replace the order in a reasonable amount of time, Artsadd will notify the customer immediately.
(e) If there is a product defect or if you are dissatisfied with your order for any reason, Artsadd's return policy will apply, which Artsadd may change at any time in its sole discretion.
5. Delivery & Shipment
(a) Artsadd warrants that it will ship orders within three days after orders are placed. Normally, goods are shipped within a few days and typical delivery times are 6-10 business days, but in certain circumstances shipment and delivery can take up to three weeks. Customers and Artsadd may separately agree to more specific delivery times and terms in a separate writing or agreement (such as a request for express shipping).
(b) Artsadd will make delivery using a shipment service provider of its choosing. The customer must pay standard shipping costs which may depend on order value and shipping destinations. Current information is available at Artsadd's website.
(a) All prices found on Artsadd's site are final, and may change from time to time. Shipping and handling are billed and shown separately at checkout (or on invoices, if applicable). The shipping address and order amount may affect certain costs, and sales taxes may apply to some orders.
(b) For customers ordering from outside the United States, all product prices are net of local taxes and fees. If, according to applicable law, the goods are subject to sales taxes, import duties, import brokerage fees, or other taxes or fees in the recipient's country, then the customer has the sole responsibility to pay these taxes and fees.
(c) Customers must pay the purchase price, applicable sales taxes, and shipping and handling charges immediately upon placing an order, without deduction.
(a) Customers may choose to pay by credit card or paypal, or other payment methods. Artsadd reserves the right to limit the method of payment chosen by the customer depending on order value, shipment destination, or other objective criteria.
(b) If the customer selects a payment method or provides payment information that makes it impossible or impractical for Artsadd to receive payment (for example, the customer's account lacks sufficient funds, or the customer provided incorrect payment information) through no fault of Artsadd's own, the customer agrees that Artsadd may add an additional charge to the order to recoup costs associated with processing or attempting to process the impossible or impractical transaction.
(c) Artsadd may sub-contract third parties to process payment.
(d) If the customer fails to pay, Artsadd may assign its claims to a debt collection agency and transfer the personal data required for collecting payment to these third parties.
8. Title to Products
Until Artsadd receives full payment for an order and the order is shipped, title to the goods remains with Artsadd. Upon transfer of the goods to the carrier, title and risk of loss passes to the customer. The customer should handle products with care until the transfer of ownership is complete (for example, in case of a product return).
