By registering and placing an order of purchase on www.artchowk.com, (*the Site*), you acknowledge that you have accepted the terms and conditions of sale documented below:
All artwork shown on Site will be sold at the price indicated, and no discounts will be allowed to the buyer. The price listed next to the image of the artwork does not include shipping, handling and applicable duties and taxes. These are payable by the buyer and will be determined according to the geographical location of the artwork and the shipping address supplied by the buyer. The shipping and billing addresses provided at the time of purchase shall be deemed the final shipping and billing addresses by ArtChowk and all transacting will be done according to the said addresses.
The artwork published for sale on the Site may not always be in the physical possession of ArtChowk, and may be physically located anywhere in the world.
All applicable duties and taxes as per Clause 1 are payable by the buyer and shall be paid by the buyer in addition to the price of the artwork.
Placing an order to purchase from the Site is deemed an irrevocable sale transaction. ArtChowk reserves the right to cancel the order within five working days due to the seller rescinding the artwork or a default by the buyer, for which ArtChowk takes no responsibility. In all other cases, the purchase order will be deemed an enforceable contract of sale between ArtChowk.com (representing the seller) and the buyer.
After the placing of a purchase order on the Site, payment must be received by ArtChowk within 7 working days of placing the order. In the event that said payment is not received, ArtChowk reserves the right to cancel the order and make the artwork available for sale on the Site again, without giving prior notice to the buyer. ArtChowk may, at its own discretion and without prejudice to the foregoing, hold the artwork reserved for the buyer and charge any applicable storage and insurance costs, and/or commence legal proceedings to enforce the contract of sale on behalf of the Seller.
As per processing requirements of ArtChowk's bankers, in the interest of protecting ArtChowk's members from credit card fraud and identity theft, all credit card purchases made online will require, in addition to the standard card processing information, a facsimile or a scanned emailed picture of the credit card or the top end of a credit card statement showing the buyer's name, billing address, and the credit card number (excluding transaction history), before the purchase can be processed.
All invoices will be made by ArtChowk based on the final registration information provided by the buyer or amended at the time of completing a purchase, and payments will be accepted only from the said registered buyer. In the event that a payment is sent from elsewhere, it may be returned or could result in a delay in the processing of the order while management considers whether a deviation from the registration details is acceptable.
The artworks will be delivered/shipped to the buyer once all necessary documentation relating to credit card ownership verification, transportation, tax, etc. as may be reasonably requested for by ArtChowk are completed and payment has been realized in full including any additional charges. Transit insurance costs will be included in such additional charges, unless specifically advised otherwise by the buyer. In the event that the buyer chooses to collect the artworks from ArtChowk he/she must do so within ten days of ArtChowk receiving the payment. In the event that the artworks are not so collected within a period of ten days, ArtChowk reserves the right to levy applicable storage and insurance costs to the purchase price.
You agree to abide by all provisions prescribed in these terms and conditions. In particular, you warrant that all information that you submit will be true and accurate (including without limitation your credit card number and expiration date), and you agree to pay all costs, charges plus all applicable taxes for the purchases made by you.
ArtChowk is authorized by the sellers to exercise complete discretion in (i) the illustration and descriptions of art works for viewing and sale and (ii) acceptance or rejection of orders received.
All artwork displayed on the Site is supported by an authenticity guarantee from the seller. Based on this guarantee, ArtChowk will issue a specific Authenticity Certificate for every artwork sold on the Site.
ArtChowk is not obligated to provide any physical preview of the artwork either before or after the sale. ArtChowk is in no way liable for the condition of the artwork. Condition reports are provided on request and are based on the information provided by the seller. In the event that ArtChowk is of the view that there is a significant difference in the physical work relative to its appearance as displayed on the website, an email will be sent to the buyer regarding the difference and ArtChowk will await the buyer's decision to proceed with the order.
Indicative prices of each artwork published have been so done at a constant foreign exchange rate of 1:60 (USD:PKR). ArtChowk reserves the right to change this constant exchange rate at its discretion, to more realistically reflect relative exchange rate fluctuations. The prices for individual artworks have been rounded to the last whole number for ease of reference and do not necessarily reflect the exact exchange rate that will be used for calculation of the invoiced price.
The buyer warrants that all the information furnished at the time of registration is true and correct and any change in the information provided will be updated and intimated to ArtChowk immediately. ArtChowk is entitled to act on the basis of the information provided and seek such further information, clarifications or verifications as it may deem necessary for granting registration. Such registration may be suspended or cancelled where ArtChowk forms a reasonable view that any of the above information may be inaccurate. However, such registration will be restored immediately on the buyer furnishing information to the satisfaction of ArtChowk.
