Terms and Conditions
At Toni Thornton Art we aim to deliver the highest standard of professionalism and excellent quality artwork based on the discussions and information shared between the art team and the customer and the information supplied on the website. With this in mind, we advise you to read our terms and conditions carefully as stated below, before you place your order. We want you to be a happy and returning customer of Toni Thornton Art!
By using the website and placing an order the Buyer (referred to as “you” in these Buyer Terms and Conditions) are in agreement of with our terms and conditions and therefore have entered a legally binding agreement with Toni Thornton Art (referred to as “we” “our” “us” or “the art team” in these Buyer Terms and Conditions.)
The Website User Terms and Conditions form part of these Buyer Terms and Conditions. For your ease we have included the definitions within these Buyer Terms and Conditions.
(1) “Artist” means Toni Thornton who is the artist and owner of Toni Thornton Art.
(2) “Artwork” means the pieces of art/artwork/prints/products which a Buyer agrees to buy from the Artist, including commissions and bespoke work/s, as described on the Website.
(3) “Buyer” means the person and/or organisation who uses the website/social media/contacts Toni Thornton Art and may buy Artwork.
(4) “Commissions” or “bespoke” is Artwork supplied according to the Buyer’s requirements so the Buyer may choose, for example, a colour scheme or certain textures. However, the Buyer must bear in mind that Artwork is a personal choice and must be clear if the Buyer has any specific requirements. Unless otherwise agreed, commissions and bespoke work are to be paid in advance.
(5) “Made to Order or bespoke'” is Artwork which is created for the Buyer based on an original piece of artwork which the Buyer has enquired about. The work will be similar to the original but will have variations in the design and colour, as no two bespoke paintings will be exactly the same in appearance. Made to Order Artwork will not be an exact replica of the original. Printed artwork will be a very similar version of the original and almost identical to what you see on screen; occasionally there is minimal variation in colour due to how the screen alters the image, this must be taken into consideration at time of purchase.
