 2. The Contract

 3. Orders for Pictures

  a. All Pictures are offered for sale subject to availability. In particular, you should note that I offer only limited edition Pictures for sale and it is possible that the limit on the Picture of your choice may have been reached when your order is received. In that event I shall notify you in Writing immediately to enable you to make an alternative choice.

b. I do my best to display and describe as accurately as possible the printed colours of the Pictures which appear on my website, but I cannot undertake to give any assurance that the colours of Pictures supplied will exactly match those displayed on your monitor.

c. All Pictures are offered for sale in mounted form only. For long life and enjoyment of your Picture(s) after delivery I recommend that you ensure they are properly framed behind glass and avoid, wherever possible, exposure to direct sunlight.

4. Prices and payment

  a. All Prices are stated in £Sterling and include postage and packing. If you are purchasing for delivery overseas you should note that you will be responsible for any taxes applicable in the territory to which the Pictures are sent.

b. Payment must be made by PayPal at the time of placing an Order. Payment in full will be taken at the time of posting the Picture(s) to you and the Contract will be in force. If you do not have a PayPal account, payment may alternatively be made by cheque drawn in £Sterling, which will be presented upon receipt at the address printed in Condition 1 above, but please note that delivery of your Picture(s) will only be made upon clearance of the cheque for payment in full of the Price.

c. In placing an Order you undertake to me that all details provided to me for the purpose of the Order and its delivery will be correct and that sufficient funds or credit facilities are available to cover the full cost of the Goods ordered. I reserve the right to obtain validation of your PayPal details before accepting your Order.

5. Delivery

  a. The place for delivery of the Picture(s) will be as shown on the Order and the normal method of delivery (unless specifically agreed otherwise) shall be regular postage.

b. I will do my best to process the Order and produce the Picture(s) as quickly as possible. Usually you should expect to receive your Picture(s) within 14 days of the date of your Order, but there may be seasonal and other variations from time to time. Time for delivery will not be of the essence of the Contract and I am unwilling to be liable for any loss or expenses sustained by you arising from any delay in the delivery of the Picture(s) howsoever caused. In the event it becomes clear that I am going to be unable to deliver your Picture(s) within 28 days of the date of your Order I shall notify you of this in Writing and you will have the option to either accept a later delivery date or cancel your Order.

c. You must inspect your Picture(s) immediately upon receipt and if it (or they) are alleged to be damaged or defective on delivery, a description of the alleged damage or defect must be given in Writing at the time of delivery and signed by you.

d. If more than one Picture has been ordered, I may make delivery of the Pictures by instalments. If the Pictures are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery will constitute a separate contract. You may not treat the Contract (as a whole) as repudiated if I fail to deliver any one or more of the instalments or if you have a claim in respect of any one or more of the instalments.

e. If you should wrongfully fail to take delivery of your Picture(s), I shall be under no obligation to refund the Price

f. Pictures may not be returned to me for any reason except as provided in Condition 7 below.

 7. Returns, refunds and rights of cancellation

 a. You will have the right to cancel any Order only in the following circumstances:

(i) for any reason within 7 days from the date of delivery, or

(ii) if I have failed to deliver the Picture(s) ordered within 28 days after the date of the Order (unless we have agreed a later delivery date), or

(iii) in the case of any Picture being damaged or defective, at the earliest opportunity after you have discovered the damage or defect (provided that you will be deemed to have inspected the Picture as soon as reasonably practicable after delivery and in no case, other than in very exceptional circumstances, longer than 7 days after receipt).

b. Notice of the wish to cancel must be made to me by email at the email address shown on my website.

c. For the avoidance of doubt (and other than where the Picture(s) are damaged or defective, nothing in these Conditions shall give to you rights of cancellation in regard to any Pictures which may have been made to your particular specifications or clearly personalised.

The notification must include full details of the claim. In the case of a valid claim, I may, in my sole discretion, replace the Picture(s) or refund to you the Price (or an appropriate proportion of the Price in the case of multiple Orders). I will have no further liability to you in respect of the matters referred to in this Condition 8a.

b. I will not be liable in any way for loss, damage, costs or expenses of any kind arising directly or indirectly from any failure or delay by me in performing any obligation under this Contract by reason of any event or circumstance outside my reasonable control, including (but not limited to), any strikes, industrial action, failure of power supplies or equipment, government action or Act of God.
