Scope:These general conditions of sale (hereinafter referred to as the "general conditions") govern the contractual relationship between any user of the artofprint.co.za site (hereinafter referred to as "user" or "you") and the company.

These general conditions of sale are the only ones applicable and replace all other conditions, unless a derogation has been granted expressly and in writing. Art of Print may from time to time modify some of the provisions of its general terms and conditions. It is therefore necessary that you read them each time you visit the artofprint.co.za site (hereinafter referred to as "the site"). These modifications are enforceable from the time they are posted online (the date of posting appears at the end of these conditions) and cannot be applied to contracts concluded previously.

Each purchase made on the site is governed by the general conditions applicable on the date of the order. Validating your order implies acceptance of the general terms.

Art of Print provides services, performance and deliveries exclusively on the basis of these General Terms and Conditions.

Art of Print does not recognize any deviating conditions unless Art of Print has explicitly acknowledged their validity in writing.

4.2. Whatever the method of payment chosen by the user, in order to guarantee the security of online payments and the protection of your personal data, the data relating to the transaction are encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology, which makes it possible to secure their transmission.

For the calculation of this period, the delivery date as well as the day of receipt of the complaint will be taken into account. If these documents are not made available to us, the examination and immediate processing of the complaint will not be guaranteed.

If you are a reseller, you must check the condition of the products immediately after their delivery as part of routine business. You must also send us your complaint in writing without delay.

6.2 In case of defect, we shall be entitled, at our option and within a reasonable period, to make a new delivery or to repair the defect. Should the attempt to deliver a replacement or to repair the defect be unsuccessful, you shall be entitled at your option either to rescind the contract or to demand an appropriate reduction in price.

6.3. The papers, dyes, chemicals and other materials used in our materials and manufacturing processes may, like other dyes, show trivial changes over time.

7. Placing an order

To place an order, you must go through the following steps:

  • 1. Click "Create now" on the product you would like to order.

  • 2. Upload your file and follow the prompts.

  • 3. Finally, click "add to cart": after your confirmation, the order is added to your basket

Validating your basket is equivalent to accepting these general conditions of sale. You can consult the general conditions at any time on the site.

Once the order has been placed, Art of Print sends you a confirmation email. Under certain circumstances, Art of Print reserves the right to reject a customer's order. Art of Print may use this right in particular when payment for a previous order has not been made. This is because the solvency of a customer is not assured.

The contract is concluded when written confirmation of the order is sent by Art of Print, or when Art of Print begins its execution. The amount of the order is due immediately unless you choose to pay in-store.

In the event of shipment to countries outside of South Africa, the customer, as importer, is responsible for the payment of taxes/customs fees and for the payment of VAT.

Before communication of your mandate to us, it shall be incumbent upon you to make a backup copy of all sent data contents.

The personal information that you entrust to Art of Print is stored on the secure servers of our host Open Resources (excluding bank data). Our access to this information is restricted to functions related to registration, processing orders, statistical operations to improve our services, and sending newsletters, among others.

Our use of your personal information (title, surname and first name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number, as well as payment information) is solely intended to process and fulfill your order, including sending you e-mail notifications to inform you about the status of your order. We also save the terms of the contract and send you order information by e-mail.

Some of your personal data (title, surname and first name, contact details, telephone number) are made available to our logistics department for the shipment of your order. No other transmission of your data is carried out, unless it is made necessary by a legal or regulatory obligation. The same principle applies to the personal data that you have communicated to us when contacting us.

In order to guarantee you absolute security, we only communicate payment data (such as your bank details or credit card information) to our payment service provider, and we do not keep them ourselves. This data will be requested again with each order.
