GOODS, PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all images and descriptions goods available from us correspond to the actual goods. Please note, however, images of goods are for illustrative purposes only. There may be slight variations in colour between the image of a product and the actual product sold. Images and/or descriptions of packaging are for illustrative purposes only, the actual packaging of goods may vary.
We cannot guarantee that goods will always be available. Stock indications are provided on our site where possible, however such indications may not always be accurate.
We reserve the right to change prices and to add, alter, or remove special offers from time to time and as necessary.
Delivery and framing charges are not always included in the price of goods displayed on our site. Delivery and framing options and related charges will be presented to you as part of the order process.
Please be aware that international orders may be subject to relevant customs duties of the destination country. These duties are payable by you, the customer. Customs fees should be paid upon arrival and are in addition to shipping and handling costs. We cannot discount or reimburse you for these costs.
Our site will guide you through the ordering process. Before submitting your order you will be given the opportunity to review your order and amend it. Please ensure that you have checked your order carefully before submitting it.
If, during the order process, you provide us with incorrect or incomplete information, please contact us as soon as possible. If We are unable to process your order due to incorrect or incomplete information, we will contact you to ask to correct it. If you do not give us the accurate or complete information within a reasonable time of our request, we will cancel your order. If we incur any costs as a result of your incorrect or incomplete information, we may pass those costs on to you.
Avant Arte B.V. reserves the right to decline or cancel orders for any reason. In the unlikely event that we do not accept or cannot fulfil your order, we will notify you by email to the email address you provided when submitting your order. If we have taken payment any such sums will be refunded to you as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days.
PAYMENT & REFUND
Payment for goods and related delivery charges must always be made in advance and you will be prompted to pay during the order process.
Any refunds due will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the goods. Refunds for returned items will be made within 14 days of receiving the goods in our warehouse.
All goods purchased through our site will typically be shipped from our warehouse within 4 weeks of order, however, this may take slightly longer (particularly in the case of pre-ordered or framed works). We will endeavour to keep you informed of any delays during this period.
We ship all orders on our standard service using premium global carriers.
If for any reason our fulfilment partner is unable to deliver to your chosen delivery address, they will leave a note with instructions for arranging re-delivery in line with their own company policy. If you do not collect the goods or arrange for re-delivery, we will contact you to ask for further instructions. We may charge you for storage costs and for re-delivery. If we cannot contact you despite our reasonable efforts, or we cannot arrange re-delivery or collection, we may end the contract and issue you with a refund but may deduct a reasonable sum in compensation for any net costs incurred by us as a result.
Delivery shall be deemed complete and the responsibility for the goods will pass to you once we have delivered the goods to the address you have provided.
Ownership of the goods passes to you once we have received payment in full of all sums due (including any applicable delivery charges).
FAULTY, DAMAGED OR INCORRECT GOODS
If any goods you have purchased do not comply and, for example, have faults or are damaged when you receive them, or if you receive incorrect (or incorrectly priced) goods, please contact us at email@example.com as soon as reasonably possible to inform us of the fault, damage or error, and to arrange for a refund, repair or replacement.
Beginning on the day that you receive the goods (and ownership of them) you have a 30 calendar day right to reject the goods and to receive a full refund if they do not conform as stated above.
Please note that you will not be eligible to claim under this clause if we informed you of the fault(s), damage or other problems with the goods before you purchased them.
CANCELLING AND RETURNING GOODS IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND
All requests for cancellations or adjustments must be made within 24 hours of your order being placed. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate any requests made after this time, as the artwork will have been sent to our framing partner or have been packaged to be shipped to you.
If you would like to return your purchase, please make sure it is returned in the original packaging and in perfect condition within 14 days of receipt. We cannot offer refunds on the costs of framing or delivery and we ask that you arrange and pay for the return shipment to our HQ in the Netherlands.
OUR LIABILITY TO CUSTOMERS
We will be responsible for any foreseeable loss or damage that you may suffer as a result of our breach of these Terms of Sale or as a result of our negligence. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable.
We will not be liable for any failure or delay in performing our obligations where that failure or delay results from any cause that is beyond our reasonable control. If such an event arises, we will inform you as soon as is reasonably possible, and we will take all reasonable steps to minimise the delay.
We may transfer (assign) our obligations and rights under these Terms of Sale (and under the Contract, as applicable) to a third party (this may happen, for example, if we sell our business). If this occurs, you will be informed by us in writing. Your rights under these Terms of Sale will not be affected.
Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (collectively, “the Data Protection Legislation”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.
Under the Data Protection Legislation, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:
- The right to access the personal data we hold about you.
- The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete.
- The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we hold.
- The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.
- The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.
- The right to withdraw consent. This means that, if we are relying on your consent as the legal basis for using your personal data, you are free to withdraw that consent at any time.
- The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal data to us directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.
- Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. We do not use your personal data in this way.
For more information about our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact us.
It is important that your personal data is kept accurate and up-to-date. If any of the personal data we hold about you changes, please keep us informed as long as we have that data.
Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office. We would welcome the opportunity to resolve your concerns ourselves, however, so please contact us first.

We will only store your personal data within the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein.

ACCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.
All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to our email or postal addresses.
There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.
We will respond to your subject access request within 21 days and, in any case, not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request.
