How buying through The Subversiv Collective works
The Subversiv Collective is an online store that allows us to sell artists works of art.
The Subversiv Collective is primary in the transaction between buyers and the artists artwork. Only on the occasion that The Subversiv Collective is in possession of an artwork listed for sale do we act as seller of that artwork. It is the responsibility of the seller to perform its obligations under the terms of any contract created with you when you purchase artwork on the Website.
We will provide the following services:
• Promote the artists artwork;
• conclude the sale of artwork under the terms of the artist; and
• accept payment on the artists behalf.
You may only purchase artwork from The Subversiv Collective if you are 18 years old or over.
The Subversiv Collective carefully vets artists. The artists and artwork on the website has been reviewed personally before it is listed on the website and offered for sale.
The Subversiv Collective reserves the right to refuse, modify, or terminate all or part of the services we offer to anyone for any reason at our discretion.
The images of the artwork on the website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the artwork. Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, given the bespoke, handcrafted nature of much of the artwork sold on the website, the exact size of artwork may differ from piece to piece and from the official sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our website. These images are published for the sole purpose of giving you an idea of what the artwork looks like and they shall not form part of the contract or have any contractual force.
All artwork submissions provided by the artist are exclusive to The Subversiv Collective and cannot be sold or displayed anywhere else. If the artwork is found within any other selling platform, both physical or online then we have the right to cancel our arrangement with the artist and take down the work.
The Subversiv Collective has a policy of continuous product development with the artists we work with and reserves the right to amend the specifications of any artwork without prior notice when the sale is made through the online store.
All packaging of the artwork will provide a protective layer to stop any unwanted damage.
It is the buyer’s responsibility to check the dimensions, note if it is original or a print and before they purchase.
The buyer’s contract with the seller
After you place an order and make payment in full, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is. The email order confirmation will include your unique order number. Please reference it if you contact us about your order.
If we are unable to accept your order on behalf of the artist, we will not charge you for the artwork and any refund due will be processed in accordance with these terms, as set out below. Examples of when this might occur include but are not limited to: the artwork is no longer in stock or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the artwork.
Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
When buying an item, you agree that:
• you are responsible for reading the full item listing before making a commitment to buy;
• you are making a legally binding offer to the seller to purchase an item when you commit to buy an item; and
• the legally binding contract will be formed when the seller dispatches the artwork and you are notified of such dispatch.
The Subversiv Collective reserves the right to reject any order without the obligation to give any reason for doing so.
The price of the artwork is inclusive of VAT and this will be the price indicated on the website and on the checkout page when you place your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the artwork advised to you is correct. From time to time, The Subversiv Collective will use the margin scheme for VAT in the UK.
If you place an order from outside the UK, it may be subject to additional import duties and fees, such as Import VAT, depending on your shipping destination.
Any additional fees (this side of the border) for outside UK orders will be notified to you in the price of your order when an order is made.
You can pay for artwork using any major debit or credit card through The Subversiv Collective's online payment processing system. The currency at checkout will always show in GBP (£).
Artwork will be dispatched by The Subversiv Collective only once payment has been received in full via the website.
You pay The Subversiv Collective for the artwork that you purchase from the artist and payment is deemed to be made when you pay us for the artwork via the website. We are authorised by the artist to accept your payment for your orders in accordance with our role as commercial agent for the artist. The Subversiv Collective concludes the sale of the artwork on behalf of the artist and so our name will appear on your card statement.
You may only pay for artwork via the website and the artist must not invoice you outside the online store. We reserve the right at our sole discretion to investigate or decline to process any transaction involving any artwork purchased via the online store.
Limitation of liability
The Subversiv Collective is not responsible for any loss or damage that is foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time a contract was made, and The subversive Collective knew it might happen.
The seller’s responsibility for loss or damage to you is limited to the amount you paid for the artwork where that loss or damage is foreseeable as described in the paragraph above.
If the artwork is purchased for a commercial or business purpose then The Subversiv Collective does not:
• Have liability to you whether in contract, arising under or in connection with the contract between you and us for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, loss of business opportunity, loss of anticipated savings, loss of goodwill or any indirect or consequential loss;
• Give any representation, warranties or undertakings in relation to the artwork. Any representation, condition or warranty which might be implied or incorporated into these terms by statute, common law or otherwise is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law;
• Guarantee that the artwork is suitable for your particular purpose.
Neither The Subversiv Collective nor the artist excludes or limits in any way its liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so but otherwise, The Subversiv Collective and the artists maximum liability to you is limited to the price you have paid for the artwork.
While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, The Subversiv Collective limits its liability as set out in these terms.
In no event shall The Subversiv Collective, or any parent, subsidiary, affiliate, director, officer, employee, licensor, distributor, supplier, agent, reseller, owner, or operator of The Subversiv Collective, be liable to you for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages whatsoever resulting from any (I) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of Content, (II) Personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access and use of the Website, (III) Any unauthorised access to or use of our secure servers and/or any and all personal information stored therein, (IV) Any interruption or cessation of transmission to or from the Website, (V) Any bugs, viruses, trojan horses, or the like which may be transmitted to our through our Website by any third party, and /or (VI) Any errors or omissions in any Content or Art Submissions or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content or Art Submissions posted, emailed, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the Website, whether based on warranty, contract, tort, or any other legal theory, and whether or not the company is advised of the possibility of such damages.
