ArteVue Art App Terms & Conditions

By accessing or using the ArteVue service, or any applications (including mobile applications) made available by ArteVue (together, the “Service”), however accessed, you agree to be bound by these terms of use including those additional terms and conditions and policies referenced herein and/or available by hyperlink (“Terms of Use”). The Service is owned or controlled by ArteVue Ltd (“ArteVue”).  The Terms of Use apply to all users of the Service, including without limitation users who are vendors, customers, merchants, contributors of content, information and other materials or services through the Service. These Terms of Use affect your legal rights and obligations. If you do not agree to be bound by all of these Terms of Use, do not access or use the Service. There may be times when we offer a special feature that has its own terms and conditions that apply in addition to these Terms of Use. In those cases, the terms specific to the special feature control to the extent there is a conflict with these Terms of Use.



1. ArteVue acts as a platform to allow users to list, display, offer, sell and buy artworks on a direct basis between the owner or representative of the artwork.  ArteVue’s sole involvement in the transaction between buyers and sellers on the ArteVue site is: making the connection between the ultimate seller and buyer so the sale transaction ultimately will always be between the party listing and the party wishing to buy. ArteVue has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, or the ability of sellers to sell the item.  ArteVue also cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.

2. ArteVue does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.

3. ArteVue cannot guarantee the true identity, age and nationality of a user.  ArteVue encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available through the Service. You may also wish to consider using a third-party escrow service or services that provide additional user verification.  ArteVue is not responsible or liable for any offline interaction or transaction between buyer and seller.

4. You agree that ArteVue is a marketplace and as such is not responsible or liable for any content, for example, data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links posted by you, other users, or outside parties on the Service. You use the Service at your own risk.



1. Use of the Service is free.  Listing items on ArteVue is free.  Any changes to the Service fees policy including any fees for ArteVue’s services are effective after ArteVue provides you with at least fourteen (14) days’ notice by posting the changes on the ArteVue site.  ArteVue may, at ArteVue’s sole discretion, change some or all of the Service at any time. In the event ArteVue introduces a new service or new fees on an existing service, the fees for that service are effective at the launch of the service.

2. If ArteVue terminates a listing or your account, if you close your account, or if the payment of any Service fees, if applicable, cannot be completed for any reason, you remain obligated to pay ArteVue for all unpaid fees plus any penalties, if applicable.

3. By listing an item through the Service you warrant that you and all aspects of the item comply with ArteVue’s published policies. You also warrant that you may legally sell the item. You must accurately describe your item and all terms of sale in the relevant listing. Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures and other content relevant to the sale of that item. ARTEVUE MAINTAINS THE RIGHT TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION IF THE LISTING IS DESCRIBED INCORRECTLY AND HOLDS YOU LIABLE. All items must be listed in an appropriate category with appropriate tags. Each listing must accurately and completely describe the item/items for sale in that listing. If the “in stock” quantity is more than one, all items in that listing must be identical. Each unique item must have its own listing.

4. All sales are binding. The seller is obligated to ship the order or otherwise complete the transaction with the buyer in a prompt manner, unless there is an exceptional circumstance, such as:

(a) the buyer fails to meet the terms of the seller’s listing, or

(b) the seller cannot authenticate the buyer’s identity. The buyer is obligated to deliver appropriate payment for items purchased to the seller, unless there is an exceptional and justifiable circumstance.

5. The price stated in each item listing description or in any communications between seller and buyer must be an accurate representation of the sale. Sellers that provide their own shipping rates may charge reasonable shipping and handling fees to cover the costs for packaging and mailing the items. Sellers may not charge excessive shipping fees. You may not alter the item’s price after a sale, misrepresent the item’s location, or use another user’s account without permission.

6. ArteVue is not a shipping company and is not liable for shipping. The buyer and seller will have to independently settle shipping prices and agree on payment before a sale is processed.

7. Any agreement relating to returns shall be agreed direct between the seller and the buyer.

8. Your Content and your use of ArteVue shall not:
