Lane 13, Khayaban e Shujat, Phase VI, DHA, Karachi., provides website features and other products and services to buyers when they visit or shop at www.artciti.com (the "Website"), or use Artciti for any other products or services.  Artciti provides its services and sells its products to buyers subject to the terms and conditions (‘T&C’) set out below, and these T&Cs are applicable to the all the transactions entered into online through the Website. In order to use or shop at the Website, the buyer must be a registered user and must agree to be bound by these T&Cs.

 

Artciti offers a wide range of services, and sometimes additional terms may apply for certain services.  When a service is used, the buyer will also be subject to the additional terms, guidelines and conditions applicable to those services as well in addition to these T&Cs.  If these T&Cs are inconsistent with the particular service terms, the particular additional service terms will control and prevail.

 

By placing an order through the Website, buyers confirm that they have read and understood the T&Cs (including any special or additional terms and conditions, if any) and agree to be bound by these T&C’s and signify their acceptance to enter into a legally binding agreement with Artciti (or an independent seller) based on these T&C’s (including any special or additional terms and conditions, if any).

 

These T&Cs may be changed by Artciti from time to time without specific notice, but without retrospective effect. The latest T&Cs will be posted on the Website, and buyers should always review these T&Cs prior to using the Website to ensure that they have a current understanding of the T&Cs under which they are permitted to access, use and place orders through this Website.

 

2. PRODUCT INFORMATION

 

Artciti feature products on its Website that have been carefully selected for sale on the Artciti Website. Once an item is sold out it will be taken off the Website at the earliest opportunity and, considering the nature of the products being sold, may never be available again, unless a buyer puts it up for sale again. Prices of products may change from time to time.

 

Artciti is not the manufacturer or the creator of the products sold on this Website. While Artciti works to ensure that product information on the Website is correct, actual packaging and materials may differ slightly when compared to the information and pictures displayed on the Website.

 

3. ORDER

 

By accessing the Website and placing an order to purchase any of the items listed, buyer confirms that he/she is of legal age and have the necessary capability to enter into an agreement of this nature, and that the information provided is truthful and correct. Any misleading, incorrect or inaccurate information provided may lead to a termination of the agreement by Artciti without any compensation or refunds.

 

All orders placed on this Website will be subject to acceptance in accordance with these T&Cs.

 

Non-acceptance of an order may be due to any one or more of the following non-exhaustive reasons:

 

  • The product ordered is out of stock;
  • Artciti’s inability to obtain authorisation for your payment;
  • Artciti has identified a pricing or product description error;
  • There is a system or procurement failure; and
  • Failed customer validation checks.

 

After placing an order on the Website, Artciti shall email the buyer an acknowledgement detailing the product(s) that have been ordered. This email is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from Artciti.

 

Acceptance of an order and the completion of the contract between the buyer and the seller will take place when the ordered item is dispatched by the courier company responsible for making the delivery. Artciti will email the buyer that the order has been dispatched by the courier company along with providing the requisite tracking details. Artciti reserves the right to dispatch multiple orders separately.

 

No order will be dispatched unless the payment for it in full has been received by Articiti.

 

All reasonable care is taken to ensure that all details, prices, photographic representations and descriptions of products appearing on the Website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. Artciti has made every effort to display as accurately as possible the appearances, colours, textures or finishes of the products that appear on the Website. What is seen will depend on the users monitor and computer equipment, Artciti is therefore unable to guarantee that the product images are an accurate representation of the actual merchandise.

 

If, for any reason, buyers wish to cancel any order that has been placed before it has been despatched, buyer can cancel the order themselves in the ‘My Account’ section of the Website. As it is Artciti’s policy to try to process orders immediately and many items being sold through the Website being unique in nature, it may not always be possible to cancel an order from being dispatched.

 

4. DELIVERY

 

Delivery shall be made through a reputable national/international courier service provider. Standard delivery time to all destinations should be expected. Standard delivery charges as quoted by the courier company shall be applicable and payable by the buyer at the time of making the purchase.

 

The delivery time and date can be tracked through the courier company, details of which shall be provided by Artciti in the order dispatch confirmation email.

 

Please note that a delivery may take longer during holiday season or other busy periods. Artciti is unable to guarantee delivery time under any circumstances, and any queries, complaints or disputes with regards to delivery should be addressed directly to the courier company. Artciti shall be under no liability for any delay or failure to deliver the products within estimated timescales.

 

Risk of loss and damage of products passes on to the buyer on the date when the products are handed over to the courier company for onward delivery to the buyer. Artciti shall send an email confirming the dispatch of the order to the buyer.

 

5. PRICING AND  AVAILABILITY

 

All prices are inclusive of applicable taxes (where applicable) at the rate appropriate to the country where the registered office of Artciti is located. Any costs, duties, charges or levies with regards to customs or imports as applicable in the country of delivery shall be solely on account of the buyer. The buyers are advised to check the rates and mode of payments for payment of such charge, duties and levies as applicable in the country of delivery.

 

All prices are correct at the time of entering the information on to the system. Prices may change and offers may be withdrawn at any time before completion of an order.

 

Although Artciti tries to ensure all its prices displayed on our website are accurate, errors may sometimes occur. If an error is discovered in the price of an item a buyer has ordered, Articiti will contact the buyer as soon as possible. The buyer will have the option to reconfirm its order at the correct price or cancel it (if the item has not been dispatched by the courier). If Artciti is unable to contact the buyer, it will treat that order in respect of the incorrectly priced item as cancelled.

 

Artciti only tries and list items on the Website which are available for sale. Beyond what it says on that product information page or otherwise on the Website, Artciti cannot be more specific about availability, as many of the items are being sold directly by the artists and/or by other vendors vide its platform, and it could be that such other vendors/artists may have sold the particular item directly or through their gallery without updating the information on the Website.  As Artciti processes an order, it will inform the buyer by e-mail as soon as possible if any products ordered turn out to be unavailable, and the buyer will not be charged for those products.
