We are all human and change our minds from time to time. Cooee Art offers to exchange artworks purchased by its clients for works of the same or lesser value within two weeks of the initial date of purchase provided the original artwork is returned in good condition. Any additional costs associated with the exchange such as framing, freight or delivery are the responsibility of the buyer.
We understand that buying a work of art is not something that you do every day. It can be especially difficult for those that buy an artwork without the opportunity to view it in person. Cooee Art offers any client that has not personally viewed the painting before purchase, a full refund if the artwork does not meet their approval upon delivery.
THIS OFFER IS MADE UNDER THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS:
The refund is for the cost of the artwork itself and not for the extra freight and packaging costs associated with the sale.
The buyer must contact the gallery within 48 hours of receiving the artwork to inform the gallery manager of their decision to return the work.
The buyer will pay for the cost of the return delivery of the artwork.
The buyer agrees to return the artwork within two weeks of its arrival at their home or business address.
The refund will be paid in full via EFT only if the artwork is received in the same condition as it left the gallery.
This agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of New South Wales, Australia. You irrevocably and unconditionally submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of New South Wales. If any provision of this agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of law, such invalidity or unenforceability will not affect the remainder of the agreement, which will continue in full force and effect. All rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
