Terms and conditions
All personal information that we may use will be collected, processed, and held in accordance with the provisions of EU Regulation 2016/679 General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and your rights under the GDPR.
On some releases, Avant Arte employs a draw system (the "Draw") to randomly allocate the opportunity to purchase a number of artworks (the "Products") from the overall edition. This system is designed to ensure fairness and equal opportunity for all participants.
For clarity, it should be noted that this system is only used to allocate a certain number of artworks within certain editions. When the system is being used, it is indicated on the product page of the edition by the presence of an “Enter the Draw” button, along with the number of artworks it is being used to allocate. It is distinct from the system used to allocate pre-orders.
To enter the Draw, participants must provide a unique email address, shipping address, and bank card information.
Each participant is allowed one entry per Draw. Multiple entries from the same person will lead to disqualification.
By entering the Draw, participants agree to accept these Terms and Conditions and any applicable resale agreement.
Participants may enter the Draw any time before the closing date specified on the edition page of the respective Product.
Participants must indicate their preferred payment method (bank card or cryptocurrency) at the time of entry.
If selecting a bank card, participants agree to pre-authorize the payment amount. The card will not be charged unless the participant wins the Draw.
If selecting crypto, no pre-authorization is required.
The Draw is conducted at random, ensuring all participants have an equal chance of winning.
The number of Products available through the Draw is indicated on the product page.
Winners will be notified by email once the Draw closes. It is the responsibility of participants to ensure that the email address provided during entry is accurate and able to receive notifications regarding the Draw results.
Once all the winners have been notified, those unsuccessful in the draw will be informed, also by email.
Bank Card Payments
Winners paying by bank card will have their payment card charged on the Draw closing date for the amount stated during entry and confirmed via email.
If the charge is unsuccessful, the chance to purchase the Product will be forfeited, and another winner will be selected from the draw.
Winners opting for crypto will receive a payment link via email, which must be completed within 8 hours of receiving the email.
Failure to complete payment within this period may lead to disqualification and selection of a new winner.
Participants may cancel their Draw entry at any time before the Draw closes by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once the Draw has been held, any products purchased by the winners as a result of their Draw win are subject to our usual cancellation policy, which is viewable here.
Avant Arte reserves the right to disqualify any participant from the Draw or to refuse any entry at our sole discretion. This includes, but is not limited to, entries believed to be made with the intention of purchasing artwork for immediate resale at a higher price, rather than personal ownership or appreciation.
Such determination is made by considering patterns of behaviour indicative of speculative purchasing, including repeated short-term resales of acquired artworks, multiple entries across various editions with a history of rapid turnover, and any other actions suggesting an attempt to exploit the Draw system for financial gain beyond the spirit of equitable access and distribution of art.
This clause aims to preserve the artistic value and market integrity of the artworks and ensure that participation in the Draw aligns with our values of fairness and art appreciation.
In entering the Draw, participants affirm their intention to purchase artwork for personal ownership and appreciation, and not for the purpose of immediate resale at a higher price.
Single Entry Limitation Clause
Participants in the Avant Arte Draw are limited to one entry per person. This rule is in place to ensure fairness for all participants. Any violation of this single-entry limit will result in the immediate disqualification of all entries linked to the individual in breach.
By entering the Draw, participants agree to this rule and acknowledge that any attempt to enter multiple times, through any means, will lead to their disqualification from the current Draw and may impact their eligibility for future Draws.
Participant data will be used, stored, and protected in compliance with relevant data protection laws, including the General Data Protection Regulation
The terms and conditions of the Draw shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Netherlands. By participating in the Draw, entrants agree that any disputes or claims arising out of or in connection with the Draw shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Dutch courts.
Participants acknowledge and agree that they are subject to the laws of the Netherlands in all matters concerning the Draw, including but not limited to participation, eligibility, and the allocation of artworks.
These Terms and Conditions are subject to change without notice. It is the participant's responsibility to stay informed about any changes.
By entering the Draw, participants agree to abide by these Terms and Conditions.
