6. OUR RIGHT TO VARY THESE TERMS
6.1 We may revise these Terms from time to time.
6.2 Every time you order Prints from us, the Terms in force at that time will apply to the Contract between you and us. Whenever we revise these Terms in accordance with this clause 6, we will state that these Terms have been amended and state the date on which they were amended at the top of this page.
7.1 Your order will be fulfilled by the earliest achievable delivery date using our selected carriers. Our chosen carrier, and their delivery times may vary according to destination. If we are unable to meet our usual expected delivery dates because of a Force Majeure Event, we will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date.
7.2 Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Prints to you or as instructed by you.
7.3 The Prints will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.
7.4 You own the Prints once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges, for those Prints.
8. PRICE OF PRINTS AND DELIVERY CHARGES
8.1 The prices of the Prints will be as quoted on our site from time to time. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of the Prints are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However if we discover an error in the price of Print(s) you ordered, please see clause 8.5 for what happens in this event.
8.2 Prices for our Prints may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Dispatch Confirmation.
8.3 The price of a Print includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being.

8.4 The price of a Print includes delivery and packaging charges.
8.5 Our site contains a large number of Prints. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Prints on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Print(s) you have ordered we will inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Print at the correct price or to cancel your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Prints to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
9. YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL AND REFUND
9.1 You have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below in clause 9.2. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep a Print, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of any made-to-measure or custom-made Prints.

You will not incur any costs as a result of the reimbursement in accordance with clause 9.4, any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us, as long as, in our reasonable opinion, the Prints were faulty or mis-described, as alleged.

13.3 If a Force Majeure Event takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under a Contract:
13.3.1 we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you; and
13.3.2 our obligations under a Contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the Force Majeure Event. Where the Force Majeure Event affects our delivery of Prints to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you after the Force Majeure Event is over.
14. COMMUNICATIONS AND COMPLAINTS

15. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
15.1 We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms. We will always notify you by posting on our site if this happens.
15.2 You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing. However if you have purchased a Print as a gift, you may transfer the benefit of the warranty in clause 11 to the recipient of the gift without needing to ask our consent.
15.3 This Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties Act) 1999 or otherwise. The recipient of your gift of a Print will have the benefit of our warranty at clause 11, but we and you will not need their consent to cancel or make any changes to these Terms.
15.4 Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
15.5 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
15.6 Please note that these Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Prints through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction. However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are a resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
