Please check that the details in the terms or on the order (where applicable) are complete and accurate before you commit yourself to the contract. We only accept responsibility for statements and representations made in writing by our authorized employees and agents. When you are ordering goods from us, please ensure that you read and understand these terms before you submit your order, because you will be bound by the terms once a contract comes into existence between us, in accordance with clause 2.5.

2.2. Jacquie Matechuk Photography is not regulated by the financial conduct authority and is not authorized to offer advice on current and future investments, whether regulated or unregulated.

Jacquie Matechuk Photography (together with its affiliates, officers, directors and employees) provides no guarantee, warranty or representation as to the investment potential of the goods that it offers for sale.

2.3. Any samples, descriptions or advertising created, and any descriptions or illustrations contained on our website or brochures, are issued or published solely to provide you with an approximate idea of the goods they describe. They do not form part of the contract between you and us or any other contract between you and us for the sale of the goods.

2.4. If any of these terms are inconsistent with any term of the order, the order shall prevail.

2.6.2. We receive any partial or full payment towards an estimate or invoice; or

2.6.3. We notify you that the goods are ready, whichever is the earlier, at which point a contract shall come into existence between us. Title to the artwork passes to you when the artwork has been fully paid for and you have been notified that your artwork is available for collection from the gallery or for delivery to you.

2.7. Please quote the sales invoice number (where applicable) in all subsequent correspondence with us relating to your order.

2.8. We have the right to revise and amend these terms from time to time to reflect changes in market conditions affecting our business, changes in technology, changes in payment methods, changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and changes in our system’s capabilities. You will be subject to the policies and terms in force at the time that you order the goods from us, unless any change to those policies or these terms is required by law or government or regulatory authority (in which case, it will apply to orders you have previously placed that we have not yet fulfilled).

3. THE GOODS

9. PRICE AND PAYMENT


9.1. All RRPs stated in advertisements and brochures are the release prices and are likely to increase over a period of time.

9.2. These prices do not include taxes. 

9.3. These prices exclude delivery costs, which may be added to the total amount due. If delivery costs are applicable, this will be made clear to you at the point of order.

9.5. Payment in cleared funds for all goods must be made at the time of order. We accept payment by money draft (supported by bankers card), cash, e-transfer and most debit and credit cards.

9.6. We are not responsible for the collection, remittance and/or payment of any taxes, charges, levies, assessments or other fees of any kind imposed by any governmental or other authority in respect of the purchase, importation, sale, duties or distribution of the goods and these are and will remain your responsibility.

9.7 items delivered to destinations outside Canada may be subject to taxes, fees, customs duty, levies, or other charges as a result of local legislation or customs formalities. These will be due before your items will be delivered.

The recipient of your order is responsible for all customs formalities for the import of the items and will be required to pay any additional charges for international delivery, including import duty, formal customs entry, taxes, levies, and other charges that may be levied outside Canada. The recipient of the items, not the person placing the order, will typically receive a separate request for payment of these charges when the goods arrive in the country of destination. If you’re ordering items to be delivered to someone else, please ensure they’re aware that they’ll be responsible for these additional charges.

9.8 To comply with anti-money laundering and counterterrorist financing requirements, we are likely to ask you for proof of your identity and may conduct searches or enquiries for this purpose for such regulated sales. We may also be required to identify and verify other persons, such as directors or beneficial owners. If information of this nature is not provided, this could delay your order.

9.8.1 Where we ask for sight of documents to prove identity and to enable us to verify it, we will specify which documents we require such as a passport or other government issued id.

9.8.2 We shall not be liable for any loss arising from or connected with our compliance with any statutory obligation which we may have, or reasonable belief we may have, to report matters to the relevant authorities under the provisions of the money laundering and/or terrorist financing legislation.

10. ORIGINAL WORKS


Where we have commissioned and/or sold to you an original work of art then, no rights to exploit any intellectual property rights, whether by copying such work or licensing such work for reproduction or publishing such work in any format, including, but not limited to, sculpture, limited edition print, illustration, video or other form of artwork or advertising, is granted to you, nor should any such grant be implied or inferred. All such rights are expressly reserved to us, and we do not guarantee that any such rights either will or will not be exercised.

11. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY


11.1. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of the terms or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable.

13. ASSIGNMENT


You may not transfer any of your rights or obligations under these terms to another person without our prior written consent, which we will not withhold unreasonably. We can transfer all or any of our rights and obligations under these terms to another organization, but this will not affect your rights under these terms.
