To ensure that you and our customers receive the best possible satisfaction and professional service from Jose Art Gallery, we kindly ask you to study this Seller Policy carefully.

Jose Art Gallery is a platform connecting buyers and sellers, but is not a reseller. The Buyer and the Seller make a purchase or sale directly. Most of the Goods are shipped and delivered to the Buyers by the Sellers, at their sole responsibility. Some of the Goods are supplied by Jose Art Gallery.

This policy is part of our General Terms of Use. By creating a gallery of the Goods on our Website, you agree to this Seller Policy, the General Terms of Use and other Policies and Rules of the Website.

We may amend this Seller Policy by notifying you by e-mail or by providing notice of the change to your Account. The new Policy will take effect immediately upon publishing unless otherwise stated. You agree to be bound by any changes if you continue to use the Website after such changes have been published.

Please note! Prints, Souvenirs and Digital Files are temporarily unavailable for sale.

2.1. Original Artwork and Handmade Items

We do our best to ensure that the Jose Art Gallery’s Website provides inspiration and engulfs every professional or lover of art with an atmosphere of creative love, unique artworks, beautiful visual imagery, and new ideas. With this in mind, the Goods you may display for sale at Jose Art Gallery shall be exclusively original artworks and/or handmade items.

You acknowledge and agree that you shall bear sole responsibility for creating your gallery of goods and agree to sell the Goods that (1) are original artworks, handmade items or digital goods created or designed by you and being in your sole and exclusive ownership; and (2) you hold all rights, licenses, consents and permissions to sell such Goods (including on behalf of the copyright holder who authorized you to do so, if applicable) or (3) such Goods are original artworks not created or designed by you, but are owned by you and you are not legally restricted from reselling such Goods neither you are infringing the intellectual property rights of third parties, you hold all rights, licenses, consents and permissions necessary to provide Jose Art Gallery as set forth in the Website Policies.

Moreover, while publishing the Goods, you shall:

  • Publish your own photo and video content that is not derived from other websites, for example including but not limited to content from photostocks, photobanks or other libraries.
  • Specify the true authorship of the artwork or handmade item.
  • Identify the subcontractor or producer, if applicable, i.e. the individual or legal entity that facilitated in implementation of your own design into the final product.

Original artworks include: paintings, drawings, sculptures, digital art, and photography. Accordingly, the Goods from among the original artworks are published at our Website in “Artworks” section, under the following sub-sections:

a. Paintings;
b. Drawings;
c. Sculpture;
d. Digital Art;
e. Photography.

When publishing original artworks in the sub-categories of “Photography” and “Digital Art”, you shall specify in the descriptive part to the Goods the information about their features, including materials and the method of production (printing) on a physical medium, if such characteristics are not provided when the Goods are added on the Website. You also shall carry out quality production (printing) of these types of the Goods, if they are sold in physical form.

You may sell the Goods from the “Photography” and “Digital Art” sub-categories in Open Edition and Limited Edition. However, Jose Art Gallery shall be entitled to limit the number of Limited Edition copies unilaterally.

  • “Open Edition” generally means that an artwork (such as a photograph or a digital painting) may be printed or produced in unlimited quantities. This means that anyone can purchase a copy, and there is no limit to its production. Such editions may be available in different sizes, materials and other variations.
  • “Limited Edition” means that an artwork is limited in its quantity. For example, it may be limited to 100 copies, and each copy may be numbered and signed by the author or producer. Such editions are usually more valuable as they are limited in number, making them more unique and collectible. Limited editions may contain additional elements such as unique packaging or certificates of authenticity.

Original artworks are the main group of the Goods at our Website. All other groups of the Goods, such as the Prints, the Souvenirs and the Digital Goods, are created under a license from copyright holder based on images of original artworks.

The minimum price for the Buyer of original artworks offered for sale by the Seller may not be less than 200 Euros.

2.2. Prints

The Prints include copies of original artworks (reproductions) produced in our printing house under a license from the rights holder.

The Prints may be available in different formats and sizes, depending on the Seller’s settings and the Buyer’s preferences.

The sale of the Prints can be profitable for the artist as it allows them to generate income from their creative work without having to sell the originals, and to expand their audience through the sale of printed reproductions. In addition, selling the Prints can be profitable for customers as it allows them to purchase a copy of their favourite artwork at a more affordable price than the original one.

When producing the Prints, we use the most advanced technology and professional printing equipment to achieve perfect colour reproduction and a wide range of tones, and we use materials from the best paper and canvas manufacturers to ensure the durability and sustainability of the prints.

You can use the Website features to create the Prints from photographs of your items previously added under “Painting”, “Drawings”, “Digital Art” or “Photography” sub-sections.

2.3. Souvenirs (temporarily not available for sale)

Souvenirs and memorabilia cover various items where reproductions of your original artwork may be printed which are produced in our printing house under a copyright holder license.

Souvenir items may be, for example, including, but not limited to, postcards, magnets, coffee mugs, T-shirts, decorative cushions, etc. Such products could be interesting gifts and souvenirs for those who are fascinated by art, appreciate your creativity and enjoy collecting various items.

You can create a Souvenir Items group from your items previously added to Paintings, Drawings, Digital Art or Photography sub-sections and further put them up for sale.

Souvenirs are temporarily not available for sale. We will notify you additionally when the sale option of this product group is available again.

2.4. Digital Goods (temporarily not available for sale)

A digital product is a digital image file that you sell to a customer in exchange for payment.

Depending on the license terms you provide, the Buyer can use the digital image file for various purposes such as personal use, commercial use, promotional material etc.

Selling digital goods helps you generate income from your creative work without having to sell physical media. By selling digital goods, you can expand your audience, attract new customers and promote your art business online. In addition, you can provide buyers with different sizes and resolutions of images depending on their needs, which increases your appeal as a seller.

Delivery costs are not included in the price of the Goods, but are calculated automatically after the Buyer indicates the delivery address. The delivery cost depends on the dimensions and weight of the Goods, the point of departure and the destination point.

You shall be liable for providing Jose Art Gallery with the exact weight and dimensions of the Goods you have committed to ship, and the shipping address provided you use Jose Art Gallery’s preferred courier service.

Jose Art Gallery reserves the right to deduct from your remuneration the incremental delivery costs of the Goods if the actual weight, dimensions and shipping information at the time of shipping differs from that previously provided.

The calculated delivery costs shall include insurance, customs duties and taxes (if applicable).

However, we do not exclude the possibility of additional customs charges when importing the parcel to the Buyer’s country. This is because customs duties are calculated by the customs officer of the recipient country, who may impose additional charges. In this case, the Buyer shall pay such charges upon receipt of the parcel.

Note. When calculating delivery costs and customs charges, we use the system of our shipping partner, DHL Express.

6.7. Receipt of the Goods by the Customer

The Seller may track their Goods via the automatic tracking system integrated into the Seller’s Account on the Website. Upon receipt of the Buyer’s order, the delivery status will be updated and the Buyer will be given a 14-day period to return the Goods without having to explain the reason.

6.8. 14-day Return Period

This section applies to the Goods that are shipped and delivered by the Sellers to the Buyers. The Seller is not required to be involved in returns of goods where Jose Art Gallery is charged with their shipment and dispatch. Such matters are dealt with by our staff in liaison with the Buyers; further we promptly notify the Seller on the outcome of such liaison.

After actually receiving the original work or the handmade item, the Buyer has 14 days to return the goods for any reason.

We hope that such cases will be extremely rare with your Goods, however, even if this happens, Jose Art Gallery will do its best to ensure that the Buyer keeps the Goods by offering a solution to this issue. In doing so, we will ensure to inform the Seller of these negotiations.

If, however, the Buyer’s decision to return the Goods within the 14-day period is final, the Buyer will receive a full refund after the work has been returned to the Seller.

For more details on the conditions for returning the Goods within the 14-day period for Buyers, please see our Return Policy.

Please note. When returning the Goods from the Buyer, the Seller may incur an additional obligation to pay customs duties or VAT in the Buyer’s country of residence. In this case, the Seller shall pay customs duties in accordance with the customs regulations of the country of residence. You may complain to the competent authorities for reimbursement of any customs duties requested at the time of returning the Goods from the Buyer. The Seller shall be personally liable for the payment of all taxes and duties in the event of the return of the Goods for any reason from the Buyer and Jose Art Gallery shall not reimburse the Seller for any costs in connection with such payments.

We recommend that you consult your tax advisors on these matters.

Please note, however, that in the event that, on return, the Goods are held up at customs due to the Seller’s refusal to pay customs duties, we will consider such parcel received by the Seller and the Buyer will be refunded.

The Seller shall comply with the legal guarantee of conformity of their Goods with the declared qualities and characteristics, and to perform the commitments undertaken by the Seller in good faith.

Should a problem with the order occurs or a dispute arise, the Buyer shall be entitled to contact the Seller via the messaging tool on the Website, and the Seller shall respond in due time, but no later than 48 hours from the receipt of such a request from the Buyer.

The price shall include all taxes and packaging costs, but exclude delivery costs. Jose Art Gallery shall take delivery costs into account when the Buyer places the order, calculating them on the basis of the dimensions and weight of the Goods specified by the Seller. In the event that the dimensions/weight indicated by the Seller differ from the actual dimensions/weight indicated by the delivery service, the costs incurred as a result thereof shall be borne in full by the Seller. Such costs will be reimbursed by Jose Art Gallery by deduction from the Seller’s remuneration.

The Seller and the Buyer shall be entitled to discuss the price of the Goods using the messaging tool on the Website.

  • The transfer of the amount requested to be withdrawn from the Seller’s Balance to the bank account specified by the Seller will take place within ten (10) working days from the date of such request.

8.3. Compensation and Refunds

If the Seller’s Account is terminated due to a breach of the Website Policy, Jose Art Gallery shall be entitled to withhold any fees and/or other compensation that would otherwise be payable to the Seller under the terms of this Policy as liquidated damages.

In the event of an overpayment of compensation (remuneration) to you, Jose Art Gallery shall be entitled to deduct the amount of such overpayment from your Balance or to require an immediate refund of such overpaid compensation.

Furthermore, Jose Art Gallery reserves the right to cancel any order placed on the Website at any time for any reason, in which case the Buyer will receive a full refund and the Seller will not be entitled to any consideration from the sale.

The Seller agrees to pay for Jose Art Gallery’s Services and charges and agrees that Jose Art Gallery may charge certain taxes.

For each of the Digital Goods sold, you will receive a fixed royalty percentage of 70% of the price to the Buyer, exclusive of taxes.

9.2. Taxes

An important consideration in any sales transactions is the issue of taxes. All amounts referred to in the Website Policies do not include taxes such as value added tax (VAT), similar taxes or customs duties and fees, which may be levied by public tax authorities in accordance with applicable legislation.

The Seller shall bear sole responsibility for the payment of all applicable taxes when selling their Goods through our Services. Jose Art Gallery does not collect taxes which it is not required to collect, but if applicable, Jose Art Gallery will withhold the required amounts of Value Added Tax (which in some jurisdictions are referred to as GST or local sales taxes) from payments made to you. The amount withheld will be displayed automatically in your Account and Jose Art Gallery will remit this tax to the tax authorities.

VAT will be charged at the statutory rate according to the laws of the country of residence for residents of the European Union and the European Economic Area.

Should you have any questions about your tax liability with respect to the sale of the Goods, we kindly recommend to contact your tax advisor for further information.

The Seller shall co-operate closely with Jose Art Gallery in providing that any necessary documentation or forms required under applicable legislation are supplied in order to ensure the effective fulfilment of their commitments and the exercise of all its rights under the law, including, but not limited to, the taxation field.

9.3. Payment Processing Fees and Disbursements

The Seller at Jose Art Gallery agrees to pay a fee for the transfer of payments by its preferred payment method. This fee is charged by Jose Art Gallery to offset the administrative costs and expenses associated with the payment method chosen by the Seller. The amount of the fee may vary depending on the method of payment.

If the Seller withdraws funds from their Balance in a currency or to an account other than the settlement currency selected in their Account, Jose Art Gallery will charge a foreign currency conversion fee, and this rate may differ from the rates in effect on the date of payment.

The Platform publishes the Goods in the list of Goods based on their rating. To avoid double interpretation: Goods with a low rating are displayed at the end of the relevant sections of the Website and those with a high rating, at the beginning.

The User acknowledges and confirms their commitment not to challenge Jose Art Gallery’s rating of the Goods.

Jose Art Gallery shall be entitled not to publish the Goods or to remove previously published Goods (with or without providing a reason) if the Goods:

  • in any way infringe the Third Party’s rights, including property and/or intellectual property rights;
  • contain signs of a pornographic nature;
  • degrade honour and dignity of the Third Party, other Users;
  • incite interracial, inter-ethnic, religious, sexual and political discord;
  • violate the rights and/or freedoms of Third Parties;
  • violate the laws of the Republic of Austria;
  • contain links to third-party sites of any nature;
  • contain obscene language;
  • contain advertising of alcohol and/or tobacco products;
  • contain incitement to violence;
  • contain slander against a Third Party;
  • are represented by a poor quality photograph uploaded by the Seller;
  • are represented by a main photograph taken incorrectly, i.e. a distorted one, with other objects captured etc.;
  • have been previously published on the Website;
  • Website’s staff has received a complaint about the Goods from other Users.

Unfortunately, it is technically impossible to list all the reasons why the Goods may be removed from your Gallery of the Goods. Jose Art Gallery reserves the right to block and/or remove the Goods you have published if it considers that such Goods go against our Website Policies in any way.

To ensure high-end quality images and the safety of Users, we set the following file requirements for uploaded files:

  • Safety. When uploading files with images of the Goods to the Website, the Seller confirms, warrants and represents that they have all necessary rights and authority over the file, including granting Jose Art Gallery rights, licenses and permissions for commercial use. The Seller shall have the appropriate permissions for files that contain images of people and of private property. If the Seller is acting on behalf of a Third Party, it shall have all the necessary copyright and related rights documentation for the file, as well as the right to sell it for commercial use. It is also prohibited to upload images containing pornography, violence, discrimination as well as any other images which may violate international laws and the laws of the Republic of Austria.
  • File format. We accept images in JPG, PNG, WEBP formats.
  • Resolution. We recommend uploading images with a resolution no lower than 300 dpi. The minimum resolution for accepting images on the site is 72 dpi. Image resolution is critical for selling Digital Goods and Prints. High-end quality images will enhance the attractiveness of the Goods to the Buyer and, as a result, boost sales. We therefore recommend that you always upload images with the highest possible resolution. Images with a low resolution will not meet our standards and therefore will not be eligible for sale.
  • Image size. A minimum of 600 px on the smaller side.
  • File size. We accept files of a maximum size of 25 MB.
  • Image quality. Uploaded image has to be clear, distortion free, without any elements in the way, including foreign objects, watermarks, stickers, frames, advertisements etc.
  • Security. We prohibit uploading copyright infringing images.

The Seller shall not publish on the Website any Products including their images and descriptions which infringe anyone’s trade mark, patent, copyright or other similar proprietary rights.

The Seller acknowledges and agrees that neither Jose Art Gallery nor any of its officers, managers, directors or employees, Partners, agents or affiliates shall be liable for any direct or indirect loss arising, whether direct or incidental, from the use of or inability to use any images or image files displayed on the Website.

Jose Art Gallery may refuse to publish the Goods or their images on the Website for any reason. The Goods or their images will be removed if Jose Art Gallery deems that the listed Goods would give rise to legal liability for Jose Art Gallery or any of its officers, managers, directors or employees, or if the Goods violate the Website’s Terms and Policies.

The Seller shall co-operate in good faith with Jose Art Gallery in order to settle any disputes over intellectual property rights relating to the Seller’s Goods in a timely and amicable manner. Such co-operation shall include, among other things, direct communication with complainants, review of copyright material, consultation with Jose Art Gallery or its authorised representatives.
