home | terms and conditions

The following terms and conditions are applicable upon registration and placement of your request on the Art Invest India website (www.artinvestindia.com) for an art work showcased on it:

    1. The art works showcased on our website may not always be physically in the possession of Art Invest India and may be physically stocked elsewhere, in India or overseas.

    2. The price listed against an art work on our website will be the price at which Art Invest India will sell the respective art work to you (the buyer). No discount(s) will be accorded on the listed price.

    3. The price listed against an art work on our website does not include taxes, duties, shipping and handling expenses. Art Invest India will charge these to the Buyer additionally as applicable, calculating them based on where the respective art work is physically located and the shipping address which the Buyer indicates. By placing an order, the Buyer accepts liability for all taxes and duties applicable on the purchase as well as packing and handling charges in addition to the listed price of the art work.

    4. The information that the Buyer furnishes at the time of registration or amended when the purchase of an art work is finalised, will be considered by Art Invest India to be the final billing address and shipping address for delivery of the respective art work.

    5. When an order is placed for an art work on our website, Art Invest India will deem it to be an irrevocable acceptance of purchase, unless this said order is cancelled or revoked by us within two working days in the event of the seller defaulting or on account of prior/continuing breach by the Buyer. Acceptance of the order will result in an enforceable contract of sale for the respective artwork between Art Invest India (acting as the agent of the seller) and you (the buyer).

    6. Art Invest India will raise an invoice on the Buyer based on the registration information furnished or amended when purchase of an art work is finalised. Only payment made by the Buyer against the invoice will be accepted. Payment made by anyone else could be returned or we could deliberate whether a variation from the registration details is acceptable (until which point processing of your order could be delayed).

    7. Payment must be made within seven working days of placing an order on our website. This payment should include the price of the art work as well as taxes, duties, shipping and handling expenses applicable on the purchase. Art Invest India has the right to cancel the order without notice, should payment not be received within seven days, or, at our discretion, hold the art work for the Buyer, charging any storage and insurance costs that may ensue. We could also proceed legally to secure execution of the contract of sale (acting as the agent of the seller).

    8. When all the documentation (pertaining to tax, transportation, etc.) requested by Art Invest India is completed and received and when complete payment (including all additional charges, etc.) is realised, we will deliver/ship the art work to you. Unless you specifically advise us on the inclusion of transit insurance costs, these costs will be included in the additional charges.

    9. Should the Buyer wish to collect an art work in person, this must be done within two weeks from the date on which the payment is received by Art Invest India. If collection is not done within the stipulated time period, at our complete discretion, we will have the art work stored and the applicable storage and insurance costs will be charged to the Buyer.

    10. By placing an order, you agree to abide by all the provisions prescribed in these terms and conditions as well as to pay Art Invest India not only the cost of the art work but all the additional costs as applicable (i.e. taxes, duties, shipping and handling expenses, storage and insurance costs, etc.)

    11. You are responsible for ensuring that all information submitted by you to Art Invest India is true and accurate (this includes without limitation, your credit card number and expiry date). Any change must be intimated to us immediately and additional information, clarification or verification may be sought as required subsequently. Art Invest India is entitled to act on the basis of the information received from you as we deem fit for granting registration. Should we view any information provided as inaccurate, we may suspend or cancel such registration, restoring it only when you furnish the requisite information to our satisfaction.

    12. Sellers of art works stocked with Art Invest India authorise us to exercise complete discretion (i) in the illustration and description of art works for viewing and sale (ii) in the acceptance or rejection of orders that we receive.

    13. An authenticity guarantee from the seller supports every art work featured on the Art Invest India website. A specific authenticity guarantee for every art work that is sold is issued by us based on this.

    14. It is not obligatory for Art Invest India to physically preview an art work either before or after the sale. Nor are we liable for the condition of the artwork in any way. Based on information from the seller, condition reports are offered on request. Should there be a considerable difference in the physical appearance of an art work vis-à-vis its depiction on the website, we will send you an email intimating you of the difference and requesting a decision before proceeding with your order. Only on receipt of your decision will we act further in the matter.

    15. Art Invest India will make all foreign currency exchange rates for the purchase on the existing market value at the time of purchase. For ease of reference, we have 'rounded off' prices that may not reflect the exact exchange rate that will be used for calculation whilst invoicing.

The terms and conditions mentioned above are applicable to the sale of fixed-price art works on the Art Invest India website only.

Please refer to the Disclaimer and the terms under Privacy Policy, which together with these terms and conditions, govern use of the Art Invest India website.
