By registering and placing an order on www.cultureartgroup.com (‘the Website’) you acknowledge that you are bound by the terms and conditions listed below:

1.
The artworks made available for sale on the Website are not in the physical possession of Culture Art Group and are physically located anywhere in the world in the artist’s studios.

2.
All artworks made available for sale on the Website will be sold at the price listed on the website and will be shipped in the shipping condition mentioned for respective artwork on the website.

3.
The price quoted is for the work of art only. It does not include any taxes and levies that may be applicable as well as shipping and handling charges. The shipping and handling charges are computed dynamically based upon dimensions, approx. packed weight of the artefact, its shipping condition and the shipping destination chosen by the customer. These charges are duly displayed to the customer, at the time of check-out but before making the actual payment.

4.
We use reputed couriers such as FedEx, DHL etc. However, please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery after the realisation of payment.

5.
Culture Art Group is not liable for any charges that may be levied at the destination whether in India or overseas.

6.
The information provided during registration or amended at the time of finalizing a purchase shall be the final billing address and shipping address for delivery of the artworks.

7.
All invoices will be raised by Culture Art Group based on the registration information provided by the buyer at the time of making the purchase and payments will be accepted only from the buyer so registered.

8.
Placing an order on www.indianartideas.com constitutes an irrevocable acceptance of the purchase. Unless rescinded/cancelled by Culture Art Group within 3 working days on account of a default by the artist or any prior or continuing breach by the buyer, such acceptance results in an enforceable contact of sale. The contract of sale is between Culture Art Group (acting as the agent of the artist) and the buyer.

9.
Once an order is placed on Culture Art Group, the buyer is required to make payment for the price of the artwork within 5 working days from the date of placing the order. In the event that Culture Art Group does not receive payment within 5 working days Culture Art Group reserves the right to cancel the order without prior notice to the buyer. Alternately, and without prejudice to the foregoing, Culture Art Group may, at its absolute discretion, hold the artwork for the Buyer and may seek to commence legal proceedings (acting as the agent of the artist) to ensure execution of the contract of sale.

10.
All sales are against 100% payment in advance..

11.
Should there be any damage to the artwork in transit the Buyer should not accept the parcel and should notify Culture Art Group immediately.

12.
The paintings that are unframed & unmounted will be shipped in a rolled format & in protective cylinders (as already indicated in the shipping condition). For the paintings that are shipped with glass frames, we cannot provide any guarantee for the Glass, though utmost care is taken while packing.

13.
Artworks received in an unsatisfactory condition by the buyer may be returned to Culture Art Group(after intimating Culture Art Group to that effect) within 2 working days in an ‘as is’ condition. In such a case Culture Art Group will refund the payment to the buyer and cancel the order. However, the unsatisfactory condition will only be covered for damaged or spoilt condition, and NOT because the buyer did not like the artwork he has purchased.

14.
While great care is taken to reproduce the colors and form of artworks as depicted on the website, it is understood that since each artwork is individually made there may be variations in shade and color. No complaints in this regard would be entertained.

15.
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.

16.
Culture Art Group is authorized by the Artists 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.

17.
Almost all artworks posted for sale by Artists on the Website are supported by an authenticity guarantee from the Artist themselves. A major exception to this is “Traditional Artworks” with respect to which the Authenticity Certificate is not available. This is owing to the fact that such artworks are representative of a particular culture and hence are made by local craftsmen of those regions who are trained by their ancestors and to whom such an art passes from generation to generation. Moreover to ensure transparency of dealings, the details pertaining to all our artworks specify whether or not they come with an Authenticity Certificate. Further to clarify, Culture Art Group does not issue any authenticity guarantee.

18.
Culture Art Group is not obligated to provide any physical preview of the artwork either before or after the sale. Culture Art Group is in no way liable for the condition of the artwork.

19.
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 Culture Art Group immediately. Culture Art Group 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 Culture Art Group 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 Culture Art Group.

20.
Please refer to the Disclaimer and the terms of our Privacy Policy, which together with these terms and conditions govern your use of the website.

21.
Disputes if any, would be subject to Mumbai jurisdiction only.
