4.      The contract between you and the Seller

4.1  As set out in Clause 3.4 above, we will confirm acceptance of the purchase of a Lot to you by sending you an Order Confirmation by email. The contract for the purchase of the Lot between you and the Seller will be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation, unless due diligence information required by the Seller or us under the Money Laundering Regulations 2019 by their internal procedures remains outstanding, in which case the contract will be formed when that procedure has been completed.

4.2  If you breach these Terms, you may be responsible for damages and/or losses suffered by a Seller or us. If we are contacted by a Seller who wishes to bring a claim against you, we may at our discretion provide the Seller with information or assistance about that claim.

4.3  We act as an agent only and will not have any responsibility for default by the Seller.


5.      Data check

5.1  When you submit an order, we may run some checks on it before it is fulfilled. These checks may include verifying your address, and creditworthiness, and checking for fraud. As to the latter, we may run partly automated checks on all payments to filter out unusual or suspect transactions, or transactions which can be identified as susceptible to fraud. Suspected fraud on our online fundraiser exhibition will be investigated and if necessary prosecuted. By submitting your order, you agree to this.


6.      Title and delivery of purchases

6.1  Once you have paid us in full the total amount due for any Lot, the delivery charges and all applicable VAT ownership of that Lot will transfer from the Seller to you. We will not deliver a Lot until you have paid for it. Collection is possible from the school, by the latest 15th of December. After that date, we will look to charge the £15 shipping fee to send you the artwork.

6.2  We, as agents for the Seller, will arrange delivery of the Lot to your requested delivery location.  You will need to be available on the designated delivery day which will be notified to us by the Seller’s delivery agents to take delivery of the Lot. Unfortunately, due to the specialised nature of the transport of the Goods, we cannot be more precise in terms of delivery details.

6.2.1      If you do not accept the Lot on the delivery date then you will be responsible for further delivery, storage and insurance costs for that Lot.

6.2.2      Risk of loss or damage to the Lot will pass to you when you (or your agents) take physical possession of the Lot.

7.      Right to cancel

7.1  If you are contracting as a Consumer, you will have a statutory right to cancel your purchase of that Lot if you change your mind for any reason. The provisions below set out your legal right to cancel. Further advice about your legal right to cancel your purchase is available from your local Citizens Advice or Trading Standards office.

7.2  You may cancel your purchase at any time from the date of the Order Confirmation up to the end of the fourteenth day after the day of delivery of the Lot to you (or the person specified by you for delivery).

7.3  To cancel your purchase, you must inform us of your intention to cancel it by sending your Order Confirmation and the cancellation form attached to these Terms. If you use this method we will email you to confirm that we have received your cancellation. You can contact us at 01736 365557 or send us an email to email courses@newlynartschool.co.uk. If you send us your cancellation notice by email or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the email or post the letter to us.

7.4  If you exercise your right to cancel your purchase, we, subject to the provisions of clause 12, will refund to you, on behalf of the Seller, the amount that you have paid including delivery costs. When exercising the cancellation right, you must return the Lot to us immediately at your own cost (as set out below).

7.5  You are entitled to a reasonable opportunity to inspect the Lots (which will include removing them from their packaging and inspecting them). At all times, you must take reasonable care of the Lots and must not let them out of your possession. If you are in breach of your obligations to take reasonable care of the Lots in Clause 11.5, we will have a claim against you and may deduct from the refund costs incurred by us as a result of the breach.

7.6  Details of this statutory right, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are also linked in the Order Confirmation to these Terms and Conditions. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.

7.7  The cancellation right described in this Clause is in addition to any other right that you might have to reject a Lot.

8.      Exercising the right to cancel

8.1  Where you have validly returned a Lot to us under your right of cancellation described in Clause 7, we will refund the full amount paid by you for the Lot.

8.2  Please note that we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Lot if this has been caused by your handling of the Lot in a way contrary to the conditions specified in these terms or which would not be permitted during a pre-sale exhibition. If we refund you the price paid before we can inspect the Lot and later discover you have unacceptably handled the Lot, you must pay us an appropriate amount.

8.3  You will be responsible for returning the Lot to us at your own cost. We cannot be precise in terms of the amount that it will cost you to return the Lot to us which will vary depending on the size and weight of your Lot but you should use our costs as a guideline.

8.4   We will process any refund due to you within the deadlines below:

8.4.1      if you have collected the Lot but have not returned it to us: fourteen days after the day on which we receive the Lot back from you or if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Lot back to us; or

8.4.2      if you have not collected the Lot or you have already returned the Lot to us: fourteen days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.

8.4.3      We will refund you using the same means of payment that you used for the transaction.

8.4.4      Legal ownership of a Lot will immediately revert to the Seller if we refund any such payment to you.

8.4.5      For further information on how to return Lots to us, please get in touch with us using the contact details provided on our Website.
