The order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
3.2 How we will acknowledge your order. After you place an order, you will receive an email acknowledging that your order has been received (Order receipt email). However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in clause 3.3 below.
3.3 How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to confirm that the Artwork is available (Order Confirmation email) at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.4 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to supply you with an Artwork (for example because that Artwork is no longer available, because we cannot meet your requested delivery date, or because of an error in the price on the site as referred to in clause 11.3 below), we will inform you of this by email and will not charge you for the Artwork if you have not already paid for it. If you have already paid for the Artwork, we will refund you the full amount you paid, including any delivery costs, as soon as possible.
3.5 Our minimum age requirement. If you are a consumer, you may only purchase an Artwork via the site if you are at least 18 years old.

- OUR ARTWORKS
4.0 Artworks may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the Artworks shown on the site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the Artwork. Your Artwork may vary slightly from those images.
- OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
5.1 When we may make changes to these terms. Every time you order an Artwork from us, the terms in force at the time of your order will apply to the contract between you and us. However, we may revise these terms as they apply to your order from time to time, to reflect the following circumstances:
(a) changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
(b) changes in how payment is accepted; and
(c) changes in our return and refund policy.
5.2 What happens if we change these terms. If we have to change these terms as they apply to your order, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes, and we will let you know how to cancel the contract if you are not happy with the changes. You may cancel either in respect of all the affected Artwork(s), or just the Artwork(s) you have yet to receive. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Artwork(s) you have already received, and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.
- DELIVERING THE ARTWORK TO YOU
6.1 Delivery Costs. Bob Claytor provides a flat rate delivery service, with costs established at checkout, worldwide.
6.2 When we will deliver the Artwork. We will provide you with the tracking details in the Order Shipping Information email, which will be within 30 days after the date of the Order Confirmation email (the date on which we email you to confirm our acceptance of your order). Delivery usually takes place within one week of the Order Confirmation, although this cannot be guaranteed.
6.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the Artwork is delayed by an event outside our control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay (which in this context means a delay which continues for more than 30 days), you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any Artwork you have paid for but not received.
6.4 Your legal rights if you are a consumer and we deliver late (this clause does not apply to you if you are a business). If you are a consumer, you have legal rights if we deliver an Artwork late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any Artwork, then you may treat the contract as at an end immediately if any of the following apply:
(a) we have refused to deliver the Artwork;
(b) delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
(c) you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
6.5 Setting a new deadline for delivery. If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end immediately, or do not have the right to do so under clause 6.4 above, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
6.6 Ending the contract for late delivery. If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 6.4 or clause 6.5, you can cancel your order for any of the Artworks or reject Artworks that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those Artworks (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Artworks and their delivery. If the Artworks have already been delivered to you, you must either return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this.
6.7 When you become responsible for the Artwork. The Artwork will be your responsibility from the time we deliver it to the address you gave us.
6.8 When you own the Artwork. You own the Artwork once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.

7.2 If you wish us to deliver Artworks outside the UK you will be charged at a flat rate established at checkout.

Please note that we have no control over these charges, and we cannot predict their amount.
7.4 You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
7.5 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Artworks are destined.

- YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER
This clause 8 does not apply to you if you are a business.

8.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (d) below, the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any Artworks which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
(a) we have told you about an upcoming change to these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 5.1);
(b) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the Artwork you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed (see clause 11.3);
(c) there is a risk that supply of the Artwork may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control (see clause 6.3); or
(d) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong (for example because we have delivered late (see clause 6.4).
8.3 Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most items bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within a specified period and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
8.4 When you don’t have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of any Artwork made to your specific requirements, or which was specially commissioned by you, personalised, or is otherwise bespoke.
8.5 How long do I have to change my mind? How long you have, depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
(a) You have 30 days after the day you receive the Artwork, unless:
(i) Your Artwork is split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 30 days after the day you receive the last delivery to change your mind about the Artwork.
(ii) Your Artworks are for regular delivery over a set period. In this case you have until 30 days after the day you receive the first delivery of the Artworks.

(a) if the Artwork is faulty or misdescribed; or

In all other circumstances, (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
9.4 How you will be refunded. Bob Claytor will refund you the price you paid for the Artwork, by the method you used for payment via the site. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
9.5 Deductions from refunds. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
We may reduce your refund of the price to reflect any reduction in the value of the Artwork, if this has been caused by your handling it in a way that would not be permitted in a gallery. If you receive a refund of the price paid before we are able to inspect the Artwork and later discover you have handled it in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
9.6 When your refund will be made. Bob Claytor will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:

If the Artwork’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated on the site, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.

15.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
