Pure Artwork will act as your Commercial Agent

Pure Artwork is not a reseller, but a Commercial Agent. This means that we act as the Sellers (Artists) agent to find you customers, rather than buying artworks for resale.

You hereby authorise us to act as your commercial agent to promote your Artwork(s) for sale to Customers via the Pure Artwork website (but we are not obliged to find you Customers), to conclude each Contract for the sale of your Artwork(s) between you and that Customer via the Pure Artwork website. Each such Contract is between you and the Customer only. We are not a party to that Contract and we are neither the buyer nor the seller (or reseller) of the Artwork(s) that you offer for sale. We are not the Customer's agent for any purpose. You, and not us, are responsible for performing the obligations under the terms of any Contract between you and a Customer. You are the seller of record for all your Contracts, but the Customer pays us via the Pure Artwork website for the relevant sales. The Customer's obligation to pay for any Artwork(s) under each Contract with you is satisfied when that Customer properly pays us for the Artwork(s) via the Pure Artwork website. Because we conclude the sale on your behalf and the Customer's payment to us satisfies the Customer's obligation to pay for the Artwork(s), our name will appear on the Customer's payment card statement (which may also display the Seller's name). You must dispatch or arrange for the dispatch of the Artwork(s) you have sold after receiving notification of the Customer's order. Customers may only pay for Artwork(s) they purchase via the Pure Artwork website by making a payment to us and you must not invoice any Customer, or obtain payment, outside the Pure Artwork website. Any refunds to Customers may only be initiated via the Pure Artwork website. We may in our sole discretion investigate or decline to process any transaction involving any Artwork(s) purchased via the Pure Artwork website.

Except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms, we are not the agent, intermediary or other representative of the Seller. We are not a fiduciary or trustee of the Seller.
