3. ACCESS TO THE WEBSITE

You are free to browse the Website without creating an Account. However, in order to submit your Work, ‘like’ other Works, 'follow' other Content Partners or registered Users, create a Campaign and/or make a Pledge to a Campaign, you will need to register an Account.

You must be at least 18 years old to register for an Account. If you are registering on behalf of a business or other legal entity, in doing so you represent and warrant that you are authorised to bind such business or entity to this Agreement.

You can create an Account by explicitly accepting the User Terms by ticking the box required and entering your name, email address, password, and any further information as required. Alternatively, you can login to the Website and create an Account through a profile held in your name with a social networking website (an “External Profile”). In the event that you seek to login through an External Profile, art:i:curate will use certain information about you contained on such External Profile to populate forms on the Website. The use of certain features or services that we offer may be subject to additional terms and conditions published on the Website or otherwise made available to you.

You will be sent a confirmation email, which will contain a link for you to confirm your registration. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your password. You may not disclose your password to any third party. If you lose or have your password stolen, you must follow the “Forgot password?” link and procedure on the Website. You will be able to change your password by following the instructions at this link.

You are not permitted to transfer or sell your art:i:curate Account (including the removal of any Works) and must not use another Account without the account holder's permission. The responsibility for keeping your Account password secure is solely yours and we are not liable for any loss or damage arising from any unauthorised use of your Account.

art:i:curate may reject any registration, close any Account and withdraw User access to the Website for any reason, immediately and without notice, at its sole and absolute discretion, including if you provide false or incorrect User Account information, establish multiple Accounts or do not notify art:i:curate of changes to your user profile information immediately.

In our sole discretion we may change or update any part of the Website or take any action we believe is necessary to maintain the security of the Website, including but not limited to requiring additional information before allowing the use of your Account or changing your password.

Each User represents and warrants that all information provided by it when registering an Account is true, complete, current, and correct in all material respects.

Each User undertakes to notify us in the event that any information changes by updating its Account information via its user dashboard or settings.

Each User is advised to log out of its Account each time it ends a session having been logged in from a public machine.

For the avoidance of doubt, the art:i:curate License shall extend to User Content which includes any mark, trademark, likeness and/or biographical materials.

art:i:curate shall have no obligation to identify any User or acknowledge its ownership of any User Content but may do so if it wishes.

art:i:curate grants an irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free license to each User to view, download, distribute (subject to the below) and otherwise use any User Content for the purposes of taking advantage of the services being supplied by art:i:curate (the “User License”) on condition that the use of such User Content by any User is limited to non-commercial use and any distribution of such User Content contains a clear and unequivocal acknowledgement that such User Content is owned by the relevant User and licensed from art:i:curate.

Each User hereby represents and warrants to art:i:curate that any User Content uploaded by it to the Website and/or transmitted to any User via the Website that:

    1. such User has the right to publish, sell and transfer title (free from all liens, claims and encumbrances) in such User Content (whether by virtue of ownership of the Intellectual Property Rights in such User Content or as a result of the grant to the User of a license to use and publish such User Content);

    2. with regards to a Campaign or Work, such User Content uploaded by a Creator:

      1. relates solely to the Creator and does not represent any other business; and

      2. contains all necessary and accurate information in relation to the Work.

    3. the publication of such User Content on the Website is not likely to bring the reputation of art:i:curate into disrepute;

    4. such User Content:

      1. is accurate to the best of the User’s knowledge;

      2. is not illegal in the UK or in any jurisdiction in which such User Content might reasonably be expected to be viewed and does not promote any illegal activity;

      3. does not promote terrorism or assist any person in committing or procuring the commitment of any act of terrorism;

      4. does not promote racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any person or group of persons;

      5. does not contain libellous or otherwise untrue statements about any person (whether living or dead) and does not harass or advocate the harassment of any person;

      7. is not likely to cause offence to any viewer of such User Content;

      8. does not promote or relate to any pyramid scheme, contest, lottery, sweepstake, or barter activity; and

Each User acknowledges and agrees that art:i:curate may review, amend, and approve some or all User Content (at its sole and absolute discretion) uploaded to the Website and/or transmitted by any User to any other User via the Website. art:i:curate shall be entitled to remove any User Content without notice and without giving any reason.

If the User Content uploaded to the Website is a Work, such Work shall not be uploaded, showcased or sold on any other website that carries on a business that is substantially similar to art:i:curate.

Each User acknowledges and agrees that art:i:curate may be required to provide information about the origin of any unlawful User Content published and/or the occurrence of any unlawful activity occurring on the Website to any police or judicial authority in any country in which such User Content has been viewed and is illegal and each User hereby irrevocably authorises art:i:curate to provide such information to such persons (on request or in our discretion) without consulting or informing it.

If you view any User Content on the Website that you believe breaches any of the above restrictions, you undertake and agree to report such User Content to art:i:curate as soon as is reasonably possible.

You acknowledge and agree that:

    1. all User Content posted on, transmitted through, or linked from the Website, is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such User Content originated;

    2. art:i:curate does not control and is not responsible for User Content made available through the Website;

    3. the Website and User Content available through the Website may contain links to websites, which are completely unrelated to art:i:curate. art:i:curate makes no representation or guarantee as to the accuracy or authenticity of the information contained in any such website. Linking to any other website is entirely at your own risk;

    4. you must evaluate and bear all risks associated with the use of any User Content; and

    5. under no circumstances will art:i:curate be liable in any way for User Content or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any User Content listed, emailed or otherwise made available via the Website.

You have no right to require that art:i:curate deletes, amends or removes any User Content once any User Content has been published. art:i:curate in its sole and absolute discretion may amend, delete or remove some or all User Content. In the event that art:i:curate agrees to remove any User Content relating to any Campaign after such Campaign has been launched and/or has received a Pledge or other support of any kind, art:i:curate reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to:

    1. annotate the User Content to make it clear what has been changed and/or removed;

    2. email each person who has made a Pledge to notify such person of the change and give such person the right to withdraw its Pledge or other support; and/or

    3. require that the Campaign is cancelled and re-launched with the amended User Content and that each person who has made a Pledge is given the right to withdraw the Pledge.

If you wish to remove a Work from your user profile you must give notice to art:i:curate by email at info@articurate.net. art:i:curate reserves the right to delay such removal for the earlier of:

    1. the sale of the Work; or
    2. 30 days after such notice has been given to art:i:curate.

In the event that you sell a Work outside of the Website and do not update art:i:curate within 48 hours, art:i:curate may in its sole and absolute discretion charge you an administration fee equal to 20% of the published retail price if such Work remains available for sale through the Website but is not available for delivery.

art:i:curate Content

All content contained on the Website or in any communication or post on any social media platform other than User Content (together “ art:i:curate Content”) belongs to art:i:curate or has been licensed to art:i:curate by third parties.

We pride ourselves on respecting the privacy of our Users. The information we obtain from you in connection with your use of the Website will be handled according to our Privacy Policy, the terms of which are hereby incorporated into the User Terms.

Whilst art:i:curate has implemented commercially reasonable technical and organisational measures to secure your personal information and User Content from unauthorised use, art:i:curate cannot guarantee that unauthorised third parties will never be able to defeat those measures. You acknowledge that you provide your personal information and User Content at your own risk.

You provide us with information when you register on the Website. We also collect information both relating to you (for example on your usage history and your preferences for Campaigns) and to Users of the Website in general. Any information that you submit or that we collect when you are using the Website is subject to the art:i:curate Privacy Policy.

7. THIRD PARTY CLAIMS

We are not responsible for monitoring any communications or content on the Website and we are not involved in user-to-user interactions. We cannot always identify every User and cannot guarantee that any User is who they claim to be. We recommend to be careful when interacting with other Users and you acknowledge that despite the restrictions in this Agreement, others may use the Website in a way that is deceptive, fraudulent, harmful, offensive or illegal.

Accordingly, you agree to:

    1. hold art:i:curate and our shareholders, officers, directors, agents, employees, affiliates, representatives, and consultants completely harmless from any claims, damages, demands or liabilities arising in any way from the use of the Website by any other User or third party, including but not limited to any claims arising from your interactions or dealings with any Content Partner or other User; and

    2. attempt to resolve any such matters directly with the other User or third party.

The Website may include links to websites of third parties that we do not own or control. Your use of third party websites or services is solely at your own risk and may be subject to the policies of those websites or services.

10. WARRANTY DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

art:i:curate provides the Website "as is" and without any warranty or condition, whether express, implied or statutory.

art:i:curate specifically disclaims any implied warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.

No Reliance

The inclusion of a Campaign on the Website does not mean that art:i:curate is recommending that you make an investment, donation or lend any money to a Campaign. Further, it does not mean that art:i:curate believes that the Campaign will be successful or that the Campaign, any detail contained on the Website in relation to it and/or any person connected with the Campaign is legitimate, accurate or not misleading.

Any decision to get involved in any Campaign in any way is the decision of the User and the User alone. You are advised to seek independent legal and financial advice prior to getting involved in any Campaign particularly if you have any questions or do not understand the nature of any Campaign or your involvement in it.

You may not rely on any information other than that which is contained on the Website directly relating to any Campaign in making any decision to become involved in any Campaign in any manner.

Save for where art:i:curate has signified in these User Terms that it shall conduct due diligence on Users, all Users acknowledge and agree that they are responsible for their own due diligence if they are considering making a Pledge.

All Users acknowledge and agree that they shall not disclose any confidential information contained in a Campaign (including the Campaign Description) to any third party without the prior written consent of the owner of such User Content.

Exclusions and limitation of liability

art:i:curate does not seek to exclude liability for death or personal injury caused by any gross negligence, fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation on the part of art:i:curate. If any applicable authority holds any portion of this section to be unenforceable, then liability will be limited to the fullest possible extent permitted by applicable law.

art:i:curate assumes no liability or responsibility for:

    1. any errors or omissions in the Website;

    2. any fault relating to any device used to access the Website;

    3. any bandwidth restriction that restricts and/or prevents access to the Website;

    4. any failures (including without limitation the ability to access the Website), delays or interruptions in the Website;

    5. any losses or damages arising from the use of the Website and/or the Services (including any viruses, malware or other harmful components);

    6. any conduct by Users of the Website;

    7. any use of third party software or services including without limitation Stripe or PayPal; or

    8. any unauthorised use of any Stripe Account or PayPal Account.

art:i:curate shall not be liable in the event that any defect or otherwise in the Website results in you losing or being unable to access (whether temporarily or permanently) any User Content.

In no event shall art:i:curate, its shareholders, directors, officers, employees, affiliates, consultants, representatives or agents be liable (jointly or severally) to you for loss of use or any special, incidental, indirect or consequential damages arising out of or in connection with the Website or these User Terms, on any theory of liability, and whether or not advised of the possibility of damage.

You acknowledge and agree that art:i:curate is not responsible for the accuracy of any information published on the Website by Users and does not warrant that any information appearing on the Website is accurate, true or complete. art:i:curate specifically excludes liability for any loss, harm, distress or damage suffered by you or any third party as a result of inaccurate information appearing on the Website.

The Website and any User Content displayed thereon may contain facts, views, opinions, recommendations and advice. These views, opinions, recommendations and advice are not those of art:i:curate and are not endorsed by art:i:curate. art:i:curate shall not be liable in the event that any User Content is defamatory, misleading, incomplete or incorrect. Similarly art:i:curate shall not be liable in the event that any fact is incorrect or misleading.

You must not rely on any information, article or advice contained on the Website. Any article or information contained on the Website is a generic summary and must not be viewed as specific tailored legal, financial or professional advice.

art:i:curate reserves the right to deliver the Website and the Services in its sole and absolute discretion.

If we are found liable to you or any third party, this liability will be limited to the total amount you have paid to art:i:curate during the 3 months before the action giving rise to such liability, or £100 GBP, whichever is greater. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain damages or implied warranties, so such exclusions may not apply to you.

11. SALES OF WORKS - OVERVIEW

We are a party to any sale as agent for the Content Partner. Buyers and Content Partners may be introduced to each other through the Website. We may sell Works or other property to Users and our Content Partners receive a commission on certain sales processed through the Website or at our physical events and exhibitions.

If a Work has been the subject of a Campaign that has reached the Target Amount, art:i:curate will charge the fee as set out in the Co-Producing Terms and Conditions.

If a Work of Art of Design Product has not been the subject of a Campaign, art:i:curate applies a fee of 30% (excluding VAT) of the price at which the Work was sold if the Work was a Work of Art, and a fee of 25% (excluding VAT) of the price at which the Work was sold if the Work was a Design Product.

When we have received the cleared funds from a buyer, the Content Partner shall release the Work for delivery. Unless agreed otherwise, the Content Partner shall be responsible and liable for the cost of packing, shipping, insuring and import/export duties.

We will deduct the art:i:curate fees and any payment-processing fees from the amount the Work was sold for (the “Net Sale Proceeds”). The Content Partner will receive the Net Sale Proceeds within thirty (30) days of our receipt of cleared funds from the buyer for payment of the Work.

Distribution of any portion of the Net Sale Proceeds shall be by electronic transfer to an account identified by the Content Partner.

The Content Partner authorises art:i:curate to deduct and retain from the Net Sale Proceeds any other amount it owes us, whether arising out of the sale of the Work or otherwise.

art:i:curate has no obligation to enforce payment by the buyer. If we do not receive payment from the buyer within thirty (30) days of the order, we shall have the right to cancel the Contract and, at our sole and absolute discretion:

    1. where applicable, return the Work to the Content Partner at our expense; or

    2. list the Work again for sale on the Website and at our events.

12. RIGHTS AS TO RETURNS AND REFUNDS

This clause 11 only applies if you are a consumer. This clause 11 does not apply to a Work that has been custom made to your requirements.

If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Work, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund.

Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the “Dispatch Confirmation” (the date on which we email you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:

Your Contract

End of the cancellation period

Your Contract is for a single Work (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days).

The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Work.

Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Work on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.

Your Contract is for either of the following:

- one Work which is delivered in instalments on separate days.

- multiple Works which are delivered on separate days.

The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the Work or the last of the separate Works ordered.

Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the first instalment of your Work or the first of your separate Works on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate Work on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate Works at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.

To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to email us at info@articurate.net. If you use this method we will email you to confirm we have received your cancellation. Please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by email your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the email.

If you cancel your Contract we will:

    1. refund you the price you paid for the Works. 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. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount to compensate us;

    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 (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method).

    3. make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:

      1. if you have received the Work and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Work back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Work back to us;

      2. if you have not received the Work or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.

If you have returned the Work to us under this clause 11 because it is faulty or misdescribed, we will refund the price of the Work in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.

We will refund you on the credit/debit card used by you to pay.

If a Work has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:

    1. you must return it 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 it back;

    2. unless the Work is faulty or not as described, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Work to us.

Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Works that are in conformity with the Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Works that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 11 or anything else in these Terms.

13. DELIVERY

We will contact you with an estimated delivery date after you have made an order. Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an “Event Outside Our Control”.

An Event Outside Our Control means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.

Delivery of an order shall be completed when we deliver the Work to the address you gave us and the Work will be your responsibility from that time.

You own the Works once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.

This rest of this clause 12 only applies if you are a consumer.

If we miss the delivery deadline for any Work then you may cancel your order straight away if any of the following apply:

    1. we have refused to deliver the Work;

    2. delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or

    3. you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.

If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your order if we do not meet the new deadline.

If you do choose to cancel your order for late delivery for the reasons stated above and you have ordered more than one Work, you can do so for just some of the Works or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Works have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Works and their delivery.

14. INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY

We deliver the Works to countries outside the UK (“International Delivery Destinations”). However there may be restrictions on some Works for certain International Delivery Destinations.

If you order Works from our Website for delivery to one of the International Delivery Destinations, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount.

You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.

You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Works are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.

15. PRICE OF PRODUCTS AND DELIVERY CHARGES

The prices of the Works will be as quoted on our Website at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Works are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.

Prices for our Works may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.

The price of a Work includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Works in full before the change in VAT takes effect.

The price of a Work does not include any applicable delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order.

The Website contains a large number of Works. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Works on our Website may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Works you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Work at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that 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 Works to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

16. HOW TO PAY

You can pay for Works using a debit/credit card. We accept the following cards: Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
