We will inform you personally by email as soon as possible if the artwork you have ordered is not available and we will issue a full refund. The artworks are supplied for your private use only.

5. Orders, Prices, Payment, User Locality, Delivery and Cancellation
By completing the check-out process and placing an order, you are offering to purchase the artworks from us. All orders are subject to availability. To order artworks you must be over 18 years of age and possess a valid credit or debit card. By placing an order, you are confirming that all details you provide to us are true and accurate, that you are over 18 years of age, that you are an authorised user of the credit or debit card used to place your order and that you have sufficient funds in the account to cover the cost of your order. The Site allows you to check your order and correct any errors before sending it. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process as you are responsible for ensuring that the information you provide is accurate.
(a) Formation of the contract between you and Artbeep: When you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement email confirming receipt of your order. This email is only an acknowledgement for information purposes and it does not constitute acceptance of your order. We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an email confirming acceptance of your order following the receipt of cleared funds or payment authorisation from your card provider of the full amount payable. The contract between you and Artbeep in relation to the artwork ordered will not be formed until you receive order acceptance e-mail from us confirming the acceptance of your order. The confirmation email accepting your order sent by us concludes the contract with you. The confirmation email will include a description of the artworks included in the order. Only those artworks listed in the confirmation email are included in the contract between you and Artbeep. If we are unable to supply you with the artwork you ordered, for whatever reason such as an error in the price on the Site, we will promptly inform you of this by email, will not process your order and issue full refund as soon as possible.
b) Pricing: Costs for artworks will be as specified on the Site. Artbeep will only charge the costs of artworks as displayed on the Site, shipping as well as taxes and duties related to shipping and exporting from the country where the artwork is being shipped from. All these will be included in the price you pay at the checkout. Depending on your delivery address, different taxation rules and additional charges may apply. You acknowledge that the price paid to Artbeep at checkout does not include Destination Taxes (if any). Destination Taxes include any sales, use, withholding, value added or similar taxes or any customs duties or tariffs that may be assessed by the government tax authority of the country of your residence or the country where the artwork will be shipped to and that are otherwise payable under applicable laws. You as the purchaser, acknowledge that you will be responsible for complying with any and all obligations under applicable laws with respect to the payment of any Destination Taxes. Artbeep and/or its third party service providers will collect your billing and shipping information, process your payment and will ship the purchased artwork directly to you.
(c) Payment: Please refer to the "What payment methods are acceptable?" section of our FAQs for the details of what payment methods can be used. When you submit your order, we carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card. Artworks will not be dispatched until this pre-authorisation check has been completed. Once we have verified your payment details and accepted your order for delivery, we will send you a confirmation email accepting your order. In the unlikely event that we encounter a problem when processing your order, we will email you explaining the problem and possibly requesting further information to try and resolve the problem. We reserve the right not to process your order if, for example, the artwork ordered has been withdrawn by the artist or is otherwise not available, or if we are unable to obtain authorisation from your card issuer for the payment or if you do not meet the eligibility criteria (e.g. you are under 18).
(d) User Locality: Artbeep does not warrant or represent that any content or Service on the Site is appropriate for use in your current location. Those who choose to access the Site or Service from their current location do so at their own risk, and are responsible for compliance with local laws where applicable.
(e) Delivery: The estimated delivery date of the artworks will be stated in your order acceptance e-mail. We will try to ensure that your order is delivered by this date but there may be circumstances where delivery is delayed because of events beyond our reasonable control. If this happens, we will try and arrange for your artworks to be delivered as soon as possible, but we will not be liable to you for any losses caused as a result of such delay. All orders are delivered by FedEx or similar courier service. Delivery times may vary depending on your delivery address. Deliveries will be subject to customs procedures and clearance, which you are responsible for arranging. Artbeep has no control over these charges and any of the Destination Taxes and we cannot predict their exact amount. Delivery times are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed. If no one is available at your address to take delivery, our delivery partner will leave you a note and you will need to contact them to rearrange delivery. You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the artworks are being shipped to. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such laws.
(f) Cancellation and Return Policy: Once you've made and paid for your order for an artwork and following the receipt of cleared funds or payment authorisation from your card provider of the full amount payable to us, Artbeep will process the order immediately and should you decide to cancel the order, we may not be able to stop the transaction. All items sold on Artbeep will be made bespoke and personalised when collected from the artist. When we send you acknowledgement email confirming receipt of your order, you will be asked to enter a personalised message which the artist will write at the back of the artwork you ordered. The message will be written in a small font in order not to affect the future value of the artwork negatively.
Except in relation to bespoke and personalised items sold on Artbeep, you may cancel a contract at any time before your order is delivered and up to 14 days afterwards, beginning on the day after you received the items. Once the items are returned to us you will receive a full refund, excluding the delivery costs to you and you will be liable to arrange and cover the full cost of returning the order to us. Artbeep reserves the right to offer Artbeep credit rather than a monetary refund, on a case by case basis. Credit is valid for 12 months from the date of issue. This does not affect your statutory rights. Depending on where you live, you can also choose to cancel your order under the CCRs (Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013) or equivalent consumer legislation in the EU. This means that, during a certain cancellation period, if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep the purchased items, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the order.
To cancel a contract, you must clearly inform us, by sending an e-mail to [email protected] and return the items(s) within 14 days after the day on which you notify us of the cancellation, and ensure the item(s) comply with the conditions of our Cancellation and Return Policy.
