Terms of Service
Last changed on
April 1st, 2018
Terms of service are usually pretty long and boring and … well, no fun. We encourage you to read the entire thing, but we figure most people won’t. So, we just want you to know up front that what governs us personally is the Golden Rule. We’ll try to treat you as we’d like to be treated, and we’ll try to have fun. That’s just who we are.
We’ve colored the stuff we want you to pay extra attention to in blue.
Please read these Terms of Service carefully before accessing or using our Website. We refer to Deep Urban Fine Art as “we,” “you,” “our,” “DeepUrban.com,” “Deep Urban,” “Site,” or “Website.” The terms “you,” “your,” and “yours” refer to the user of the Site. By accessing or using any part of this Website, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Service. If you do not accept and agree to all provisions of the Terms of Service, either now or in the future, you must immediately terminate all access and use of DeepUrban.com and any services we provide. We reserve the right to update, change or replace any part of these Terms of Service, and it is your responsibility to check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of or access to the Website or our Services following the posting of any changes constitutes acceptance of those changes. The headings used in this agreement are included for convenience only and will not limit or otherwise affect these Terms of Service.
These Terms of Service shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States of America and of the State of Washington.
You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any portion of DeepUrban.com without our express written permission. You agree not to use our Products or Services for any illegal or unauthorized purpose, including but not limited to violation of copyright laws. Deep Urban is not responsible for the actions of any third party services we recommend, list, or advertise. A breach or violation of any of these Terms of Service may result in an immediate termination of your right to use the Site and/or Services. We reserve the right to refuse access to the Site and/or Services to anyone for any reason at any time.
You agree that we’re not attorneys, psychologists, physicians, building contractors, interior designers, nor financial or investment experts, that we don’t dispense legal, psychological, financial, construction, or medical advice, and that if you need such advice, you should seek an appropriate professional.
Information on this Site may not be complete, accurate, or current, is provided for general information only, and should not be relied upon or used as the sole basis for making decisions. Any reliance on information presented on this site is at your own risk.
Use of the Site by Minors
By agreeing to these Terms of Service, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence.
Modifications to the Service and/or Prices
Prices for our Products and Services are subject to change without notice, and we are not liable for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Site or the products and services.
Products and Services
We reserve the right to limit, cancel, or refund the sales of our products or services to any person, geographic region, or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis. All descriptions of Products and Services or Product and Service pricing are subject to change at anytime without notice. We reserve the right to discontinue any Product or Service at any time. Any offer for any Product or Service made on this Site is void where prohibited.
Limitation of Rights Purchased With Artwork
The right of display is conveyed with any artwork purchased from us. No other rights are conveyed, including, but not limited to, moral rights, the right of reproduction, and the right to the creation of derivative works.
We want you to be happy with your art. If it turns out that you’re not as in love with your new art as you thought you’d be, you can return it. Returns must returned to us undamaged and packed using all of their original shipping materials. They must be given over to the return carrier within 5 business days of delivery. After we receive the returned, undamaged artwork, we will inspect it and refund the purchase price minus a $30 re-stocking fee.
We usually ship in-stock artwork within one business day, and commissioned art is usually shipped within 2 weeks (often well before that). We will send you a tracking number and an estimated delivery date within 24 hours after your artwork is shipped.
We do not require a signature unless you ask us to in the “Note to Seller” box at checkout. If you do not ask for a signature-upon-delivery, we will not be responsible for shipments that are lost, stolen, misdirected or damaged in transit or upon delivery.
If you do ask for a signature-upon-delivery and your shipment is obviously damaged in transit (which has happened with fewer than 1% of our shipments), you should take a picture of the package and refuse to sign for it. Then, and only then, can we refund your full purchase price. If you or someone else signs and accepts the package, you will be subject to our regular returns/refunds policies.

That’s All, Folks!
Done. Phew! We know that’s a lot of wordage up there, but it keeps our lawyers happy. If you skimmed down to the bottom here, be sure to pay extra-special attention to the blue stuff above and know that we’re really all about The Golden Rule. Thanks for bearing with us. Art collectors are a great bunch.
