Online Exhibition Terms and Conditions

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE

EXHIBITION SALES 

CONTRACT FORMATION

1.    These terms and conditions of sale (“Terms”) apply to the sale of all goods online between the Federation of British Artists (trading as ‘Mall Galleries’) and whose principal place of business is at 17 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5BD England, United Kingdom (“we/us”) and any visitors (“you”) to the website at www.mallgalleries.org.uk  (“Site”).  For all pre- and post-sale enquiries, please contact admin@mallgalleries.com or telephone 020 7930 6844 during office hours.

2.    We may contract with you either as agent of the relevant artist(s) or as principal if we are the seller. No contract shall exist between you and us for the sale of any goods until we acknowledge your Order, confirming availability of the goods and acceptance of your order placed on our Enquiry Form by email. These Terms represent the entire agreement between us. 

3.    By placing an order for any goods with age restrictions, you declare that you are age eighteen or over in order to purchase the goods.

4.    The price and description of the goods are displayed on our Site.  Such information is subject to change without notice.  

5.    Subject to clauses 2 and 6, the price you shall pay for the goods is the price displayed on our Site at the time we receive your order.  The price of the goods is inclusive of VAT if the artist is registered for VAT or if we contract with you as principal.  You may choose to pay, following acceptance of your enquiry by credit/debit card or by visiting us in person at the above address.

6.    If an error is discovered in the price of the goods that you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible.  In the event that you order an item and the price published on the Site is incorrect for any reason, we will contact you to let you know the correct price and ask you whether you still wish us to fulfil your order at this price.  We shall be under no obligation to fulfil an order for a product which was advertised at an incorrect price.  We shall give you the option of confirming the order at the correct price or if you so choose, to cancel the order altogether.  If you cancel, we shall refund the full amount in accordance with these Terms.

7.    Collection of the goods can only take place after the close of the exhibition. The earliest date for collection is provided with your receipt. Collection is your responsibility - we do not deliver any goods purchased on the Site.  We can advise on suitable couriers or shippers in the event you are unable to arrange collection in person.

8.    We endeavour to ensure that all of the items shown on the Site are accurately represented.  There may, however, be some slight variations (and this should be expected) between what you see and what you receive in any order, which you agree to accept, provided the variations are not substantial.  We may correct any typographical or other errors or omissions in any catalogue, sales literature, quotation or other document relating to the sale of the goods without any liability to you.

9.    Neither we nor any of our employees or agents are responsible for the correctness of any statement as to the authorship, origin, date, age, attribution, genuineness or provenance of any work nor for any other errors of description or for any faults or defects in any work.

10.    We will take all reasonable precautions to keep the details of your order and payment secure by using a third party payment provider whom we believe uses industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology, making our pages secure.  Accordingly, unless we are negligent, we cannot be held liable for any losses caused as a result of unauthorised access to your information, either on our Site or our payment provider’s.

11.    The price of the goods is payable in full on or before collection.

12.    Receipts for payment will be issued on request by email for any purchases made online from the Site.  If the goods are not paid for in full on or before collection, they shall remain our property until payment is received from you.

AVAILABILITY

13.    All goods are subject to availability. Any order placed for goods shall constitute a reservation only of the item until we have had an opportunity to verify its availability and notify you by email that your order is confirmed.

COLLECTION OF GOODS

14.    If the goods are not collected by you, or on behalf of you, within two weeks of the date of purchase, you will be deemed to have received the goods at that point and we will be entitled, with effect from the period commencing fourteen working days thereafter, beginning with the day after the day on which you are deemed to have received the goods,  to cancel this contract and to destroy, sell, or otherwise dispose of the goods without your consent.  In those circumstances, title in the goods shall not pass to you and we shall refund all charges paid by you for the goods in accordance with clause 20.

15.    Risk of loss of or damage to the goods passes to you on collection, whether or not the price has been paid.

16.    If the goods have been fully paid for, you will become the owner of the goods when they have been collected by you.

RIGHT TO CANCEL

17.    You may cancel an order for goods for any reason within fourteen working days, beginning with the day after the day on which you received the goods.

18.    If you cancel an order within this timeframe, you should notify us in writing at the email address given in clause 1 or by using the cancellation form set out in the Schedule and sending it to us. You will be responsible for the cost of returning the goods.

19.    When returning goods, it is your responsibility to take reasonable care to see that the goods are not damaged, either whilst in your possession or in transit and are received by us at our address for returns, as displayed on the Site.  We reserve the right to deduct a charge to put the item back into the condition in which it was sold where it has been damaged or is showing signs of wear and tear.

20.    You must return the goods within fourteen days of cancellation and at your own expense. We shall provide a full refund for goods returned or cancelled in accordance with these Terms and paid for by you, free of charge, as soon as possible and in any event within a period not exceeding fourteen days of receiving the goods back or receiving proof that they have been sent back (whichever earlier).  Any other refund not satisfying the above conditions will be made at our discretion only.  Your statutory rights are not affected. Please see the Schedule for our cancellation form which should be filled out in order to cancel your order (although it is not essential to use our form).

WARRANTIES 

21.    The goods are warranted free from defects in material and workmanship for [three months] from collection.  This warranty does not apply to any defect in the goods arising from fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence by you or any third party, use otherwise than as recommended by us, failure to follow our instructions, or any alteration or repair carried out without our approval. This warranty does not affect the your rights as a consumer.

22.    If the goods supplied to you develop a defect while under warranty, or you have any other complaint about the goods, please email us at the address given above.

LIABILITY

23.    If either you or we are in breach of these Terms, neither of us will be responsible for any losses that the other suffers as a result, except those losses which are a foreseeable consequence of the breach and shall not in any event include losses related to any business of yours such as lost data, lost profits or business interruption.

FORCE MAJEURE

24.    We shall not be liable to you for any failure to deliver the goods that have been ordered by you or any delay, damage or defect to the goods collected which is caused by any event or circumstance beyond our reasonable control.

GOVERNING LAW

25.    English law applies to these terms and conditions and any sale of goods to which they apply and you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts in all matters arising from these Terms.
