“Goods” means any of the Goods we offer for sale on our web site
“Content” means information in any form published on Our Web Site by us or any third party with our consent.
Our contract with you
These terms and conditions apply to you as a visitor to Our Web Site, prospective buyer or buyer of our Goods.
We shall accept your order and send e-mail confirmation with details of your purchase and dispatch date. That is when our contract is made it is possible that the price may have increased from that posted on our web site. All descriptions, weights and sizes of Goods are those of the original artist and you may not rely on their accuracy. Accordingly, any such description shall not form part of this Agreement.
If the Goods you order are not available, we will offer you alternatives before we dispatch your order. If this happens you can accept the alternatives, cancel your order, or omit the out-of-stock item from your order. If we owe you money (for this or any other reason), we will credit your credit or debit card as soon as reasonably practicable but in any event no later than 30 days from the date of your order.
Goods are at your risk from the moment they are picked up by the Carrier from our artists. Your contract is with us, not our artists. Communication regarding sales, returns, commissions or refunds is to be done through OnlineArt.
Price and Payment
You must pay us the full price of your order before we will send any part of it. You will pay all sums due to us under these terms by the means specified without any set-off, deduction or counterclaim.

Information you give us
You agree that you have provided, and will continue to provide accurate, up to date, and complete information about yourself. We need this information to provide you with the Goods. We will use our reasonable endeavors to respond to any point of dissatisfaction by you, provided you contact us within three months of purchase.
Deliveries will be made by the Carrier to the address stipulated in your order. You must ensure that someone is present to accept delivery. If we are not able to deliver your Goods within 30 days of the date of your order, we shall notify you by e-mail to arrange another date for delivery. We may deliver the goods in installments if the goods are not available at the same time for delivery.
Returns and refunds
Because you are buying the Goods by mail order, you may have a right of cancellation. If you do (and only if you do), these are the terms which apply.
All correspondence regarding the return of Goods shall be carried out between you and OnlineArt. You may not contact any artist directly for any reason.
You must tell us you wish to cancel within 14 days of your receipt of the Goods. Please return to the artist within 21 days of delivery in original condition, securely wrapped, with our delivery slip all at your risk and cost.
After our artist has received the Goods, we will credit your credit or debit card with the full purchase price of the goods returned no later than 30 days from the date of receipt. If you do not return the Goods to us, you are still liable to us for the cost.
