These general conditions of sale govern the relationship between purchasers and sellers.

ARTDEME is not the seller of works of art purchased on their intermediary services platform. ARTDEME does not own the works of art displayed on its website.

The artist alone, whose name is indicated in the descriptive sheet accompanying each work, is the seller contracting with the the purchaser the sale of the works. Internet users visiting the site and interested in the works exhibited by ARTDEME are invited to read these General Terms and Conditions of Sale carefully, to print them and/or to save them in a permanent medium before placing an order on the site.

 

Article 1 Definitions

 

Site: the site http://www.artdeme.com

Work or Works : product or set of products presented on the Site that can be purchased, including: paintings, sculptures, photographs, reproductions of works of art etc.

Seller: the artist who created the Work or his or her agent

Purchaser: Anyone wishing to buy one or more works.

Consumer: according to the definition of the consumer code clause: “any person who acts for purposes that do not fall within the scope of his or her commercial, industrial, artinisal or liberal activity”.

 

Article 2 Application of the GCS

 

ARTDEME reserves the right to modify the GCS at any time, by publishing a new version of these on the Site which will apply to the Seller and the Purchaser. However, the GCS applicable shall be those in force on the date of the order on the Site.

This Site offers the sale of works of art online. The Site is freely accessible to all Internet users. The present GCS have been accepted by the Sellers prior to the posting of their Works online.

The acquisition of one or more Works implies the Purchaser’s acceptance the present GCS in their entirety.

If the Purchaser is a minor or does not have such legal capacity, he or she declares that he or she has the authorisation of a guardian or administrator or his or her legal representative.

 

Article 3 Steps for concluding the contract of sale between the Purchaser and the Seller.

 

  1. The Works are exhibited for sale on the Site, accompanied by a precise description of the Work – in particular: name of the artist, possible title, technique used, dimensions, possible framing , a bibliographic record of the Artist and the proposed price.  ARTDEME will ensure that the images or photographs of the Works reflect a true and fair view, but these do not constitute a contractual commitment insofar as they cannot ensure perfect equivalence with the physical products.
  2. The Purchaser selects the Work or Works he or she wishes to acquire. The acquisition of a Work implies the Purchaser’s acceptance in their entirety of the present GCS, and the latter also acknowledges having read them in full. This acceptance could be, for the Purchaser, by checking the box corresponding to the sentence of acceptance of these GCS, for example the following: “I acknowledge having read and accepted all the general conditions of the site” Checking this box will be deemed as having the same force as a handwritten signature from the Purchaser.
