2. BASIS OF SALE
2.1. These terms, the order and our price list are considered by us to set out the whole
agreement between you and us for the sale of the goods and supersede and extinguish all
previous agreements, promises, assurances, representations and understandings. Please check
that the details in the terms or on the order (where applicable) are complete and accurate before
you commit yourself to the contract. If you think that there is an omission or a mistake, please
make sure that you ask us to confirm any changes in writing, as we only accept responsibility for
statements and representations made in writing by our authorised employees and agents. When
you are ordering goods from us, please ensure that you read and understand these terms before
you submit your order, because you will be bound by the terms once a contract comes into
existence between us, in accordance with clause 2.5.
2.2. Any samples, drawings, descriptions or advertising we issue, and any descriptions or
illustrations contained in our catalogues or brochures, are issued or published solely to provide
you with an approximate idea of the goods they describe. They do not form part of the contract
between you and us or any other contract between you and us for the sale of the goods.
2.3. The order is an offer by you to enter into a binding contract, which we are free to accept or
decline at our absolute discretion.
2.4. These terms shall become binding on you and us when:
2.5.1. We issue you with a sales invoice; or
2.5.2. We notify you that the goods are ready, whichever is the earlier, at which point a contract
shall come into existence between us. Title to the artwork passes to you when the artwork has
been fully paid for and you have been notified that your artwork is available for collection or for
delivery to you.
2.6. We have the right to revise and amend these terms from time to time to reflect changes in
market conditions affecting our business, changes in technology, changes in payment methods,
changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and changes in our system’s capabilities.
You will be subject to the policies and terms in force at the time that you order the goods from us,
unless any change to those policies or these terms is required by law or government or
regulatory authority.
3. THE GOODS
3.1. In accordance with your statutory rights, on delivery or the date upon which we notify you
that the goods are ready for collection, as the case may be, the goods shall:
3.1.1. Conform with these terms;
3.1.2. Conform in all material respects with their description and which match any sample or
model seen or examined by you, subject to any qualification or representation contained in the
relevant brochures, advertisements or other documentation;

3.1.4. Be fit for purpose for use as indoor display artwork and merchandise;

such goods in the United Kingdom.
3.2. If you are returning goods to us pursuant to your statutory rights, please take note of the
return’s procedure at clause 6 below.

your statutory rights.

swiftly as possible should any defects be identified on delivery, in order that we can take the
necessary steps to repair, replace, or if necessary, refund the goods. We therefore request that
upon receipt of your goods you remove all packaging and inspect the goods closely to ensure
that they are in good condition. Should you be less than satisfied with the quality or condition of
the goods or any aspect of the frame (if applicable), you should advise us no later than 7 working
days after taking possession of the goods. Any delay to you notifying us might impact upon our
ability to rectify the issue for you. This clause 3.4 does not affect your statutory rights.
3.5. Items displayed on our website or imagery of artwork provided to you may appear different in
person than on an electronic screen or device. We cannot be held liable for the precise colour,
finish or other variables that may be due to differences caused by different devices.
4. WARRANTY
4.1. We, Antonio Russo Art Company Limited, warrant that for a period of 6 months from the date
of delivery or the date upon which you are notified to collect, as the case may be, any goods
purchased directly from us or which originate from us and which are covered by this warranty will
be free from material defects or non-working parts.
4.2. If you discover a defect or if any part stops working within the above warranty period, please
contact us by email at info@arussoart.com, providing your name, address, phone number, email
address, order details, order number and proof of purchase and details of the issue. Please note
that provision of proof of purchase is a condition of this warranty and your warranty claim may
not be successful without it. We may also require photographs showing the condition of the item.
4.3. Claims on the warranty must be made within the warranty period, we do not accept claims
on the warranty made after the warranty period even if the issue arose during the warranty
period. This warranty is not a substitute for insurance, and you should make sure that the items
covered by the warranty are properly insured against normal risks for their full replacement value.
4.4. After you have provided to us all of the warranty claims details required by us, we will ask
you to return the item covered by the warranty to us. If you arrange the return, please make sure
you insure for the full replacement value, as any damage caused during shipping is at your risk.
You must ensure that the packing used for shipping is adequate to protect the items from
damage during the return shipping to us.
4.5. If the issue is covered by this warranty, we will either (at our option):
4.5.1. Repair the item and return it to you at our cost; or
4.5.2. Replace the item with the same or equivalent item; or

in each case we will also refund to you any reasonable return delivery charges which you have
incurred.

proceed. For example, we may still be able to repair the item for a reasonable charge. Returning
the item to you where the issue is not covered by the warranty is at your cost, unless we agree
otherwise.
4.7. In respect of any repaired or replacement item that we may supply to you under this
warranty, this warranty shall continue to apply to the repaired or replaced item for the remainder
of the original warranty period.

4.9. This warranty only applies to end customers who are the first end-customer in relation to the
items covered by the warranty when it is purchased new. This warranty is not transferable, and
so this warranty will not apply to any subsequent buyers or owners or if you are buying an item
second hand. However, if the item is given to you as a gift (e.g. As birthday or wedding present)
by someone who purchased it new for that purpose, then this warranty will apply to you as long
as you can provide all the information needed to claim on the warranty and demonstrate that it
was given to you as a gift.
4.10. This warranty is in addition to your statutory rights and does not affect your statutory rights.
For further advice about your statutory rights please contact your local citizens’ advice bureau or
trading standards office.
4.11. This warranty does not apply to any issues arising from fair wear and tear, damage caused
after purchase, defective installation or hanging, damage from power surges, lightning, fire, heat,
freezing, water, fluid or extremes of humidity, bleaching or discoloration due to strong light,
ultraviolet light or sunlight, improper cleaning, chemical, electrolytic or other damage not due to a
defect, not following our use recommendations, your failure to follow our instructions, including
the instructions set out below or any other instructions provided to you, any discolouration,
marking, scratching or aging over time (including in relation to items with a hand applied resin
finish or resin coat) or the effects of any alteration or repair carried out without our prior written
approval or any damage or fault which would be covered under normal contents insurance.

direct or strong heat or in damp conditions or extremes of humidity. When cleaning, only use a

goods to you, or we make the goods available for collection by you.
5.3. We will take reasonable steps to meet any estimated delivery or collection date specified in

aware of an unexpected delay and will arrange a new estimated date with you.
5.4. We will take reasonable steps to pack the goods properly and to ensure that you receive
your order in good condition.
5.5. If you fail to take delivery of the goods within seven calendar days of the date on which we

dispose of part or all of the goods and, after deducting reasonable storage and selling costs,
credit the balance to a client account held by us or charge you for any shortfall that may occur.
5.7. If we are not able to deliver the whole of the order at one time due to operational reasons or
shortage of stock, we may deliver the order in instalments. We will not charge you extra delivery
costs for this.

making a claim under the warranty at clause 4 above, please let us know as soon as possible

number, email address, order details, order number and proof of purchase of the goods.

return of the goods to us.
7. CANCELLATION
7.1. If you are contracting as a consumer and your order is not taken in person at our business
premises, you may cancel your contract to purchase the goods at any time within 14 days,
beginning on the day after you receive the goods.
This right of cancellation does not, however, apply in the case of bespoke goods made or
commissioned to your specific order.
To cancel a contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. You can
contact us on info@arussoart.com Please include details of your order to help us to identify it.
7.2. If you cancel your contract, we will:
7.2.1. Refund you the price you paid for the goods. However, please note we are permitted by
law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been
caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a retail outlet;
7.2.2. Refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum
refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example,
if we offer delivery of goods within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the goods
delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for
the cheaper delivery option; and
7.2.3. Make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. and in any event within the deadlines
indicated below:
7.3. We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay.
7.4. If goods have been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your contract:
7.4.1. Then you must return them to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14
days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the contract. You can either
send them back, return them to us in-store or hand them to our authorised carrier.
7.4.2. Unless you are returning the goods to us pursuant to your statutory rights or you are
returning the goods to us under the warranty at clause 4 (in this case, see clause 4 or clause 6
as applicable), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the products to us. If the product is
one which cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the
product to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery.
7.5. Apart from the special circumstances described above, you may only cancel your order with
our agreement. Any deposit held will be used to defray our initial costs and expenses of fulfilment
and any remaining deposit (or part of it) will be retained by us to be used as a credit against the
purchase of other goods for the same or higher price. In the case of goods which we are unlikely
to be able to use or sell elsewhere, we may, if we have agreed to a cancellation, also deduct the
value of these items from your deposit and ask you to pay any additional amount if their value is
more than the amount of your deposit.
7.6. Advice about your legal right to cancel the contract is available from your local citizen’s
advice bureau or trading standards office.
8. TITLE AND RISK
8.1. The goods will be your responsibility from the first available point for delivery.
8.2. Ownership of the goods will only pass to you when we receive payment in full of all sums
due for the goods, including delivery charges, and delivery being available to be completed.
9. Price and Payment
9.1. All RRPs stated in brochures are the release prices and are likely to increase over a period
of time.
9.2. These prices include VAT. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of the order
and the date of delivery, we will adjust the vat you pay, unless you have already paid for the
goods in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
9.3. These prices exclude delivery costs, which may be added to the total amount due. If delivery
costs are applicable, this will be made clear to you at the point of order.
9.4. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the goods we sell may be
incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that,
where the goods’ correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount
when dispatching the goods to you. If the goods’ correct price is higher than the price stated on
the order, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching
the goods, or reject the order and tell you. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and
could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the
goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
9.5. Payment in cleared funds for all goods must be made at the time when goods are collected
or with the order, as the case may be. We accept payment by most debit and credit cards.
9.6. We are not responsible for the collection, remittance and/or payment of any taxes, charges,
levies, assessments or other fees of any kind imposed by any governmental or other authority in
respect of the purchase, importation, sale or distribution of the goods and these are and will
remain your responsibility.
9.7 items delivered to destinations outside the UK may be subject to taxes, fees, customs duty,
levies, or other charges as a result of local legislation or customs formalities. These will be due
before your items will be delivered.
The recipient of your order is responsible for all customs formalities for the import of the items
and will be required to pay any additional charges for international delivery, including import duty,
formal customs entry, taxes, levies, and other charges that may be levied outside the UK. The
recipient of the items, not the person placing the order, will typically receive a separate request
for payment of these charges when the goods arrive in the country of destination. If you’re
ordering items to be delivered to someone else, please ensure they’re aware that they’ll be
responsible for these additional charges.
10. ORIGINAL WORKS
10.1Where we have sold to you an original work of art then, no rights to exploit any intellectual
property rights, whether by copying such work or licensing such work for reproduction or
publishing such work in any format, including, but not limited to, sculpture, limited edition print,

is a foreseeable result of our breach of the terms or our negligence, but we are not responsible
for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it is an obvious
consequence of our breach or if it was contemplated by you and us at the time we entered into
this contract.
11.2. Provided that we have taken all reasonable steps to establish the provenance of an original
work, in the event of it being established that such work is not attributable to the relevant artist,
our liability shall be limited to refunding the original cost of the artwork to you and we shall not be
responsible for any loss of anticipated investment value.
11.3. You acknowledge that in entering into this contract you do not rely on, and shall have no

writing.

duration of that period. We will take reasonable steps to bring the force majeure event to a close
or to find a solution by which our obligations under these terms can be performed despite the
force majeure event.
15. GENERAL
15.1. If any court or competent authority decides that any of the provisions of these terms are
invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, the term will, to that extent only, be severed from
the remaining terms, which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
15.2. If we fail, at any time while these terms are in force, to insist that you perform any of your
obligations under these terms, or if we do not exercise any of our rights or remedies under these
terms, that will not mean that we have waived such rights or remedies and will not mean that you
do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, that will not mean
that we will automatically waive any subsequent default by you. No waiver by us of any of these
terms shall be effective unless we expressly say that it is a waiver, and we tell you so in writing.
15.3. A person who is not party to these terms shall not have any rights under or in connection

jurisdiction of the English courts.
