Items You Purchase. You understand that ARTB412 reproduces the original art image uploaded onto the platform. We do not alter the images in any way and reproduce the art as provided.

Content You Access. ARTB412 is not responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality or decency of content posted by users that you accessed through the Services. You release us from all liability relating to that content.

People You Interact With. You can use the Services to interact with other individuals, either online or in person.

Please be careful and exercise caution and good judgement in all interactions with others, especially if you are meeting someone in person.

Third-Party Services. Our Services may contain links to third-party websites or services that we don’t own or control (for example, links to Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest). You may also need to use a third party’s product or service in order to use some of our Services (like a compatible mobile device to use our mobile apps). When you access these third-party services, you do so at your own risk. The third parties may require you to accept their own terms of use. ARTB412 is not a party to those agreements; they are solely between you and the third party.

Warranties. You understand that our Services are provided “as is” and without any kind of warranty (express or implied). We are expressly disclaiming any warranties of title, non-infringement, merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, as well as any warranties implied by a course of performance, course of dealing or usage of trade.

You use the Services solely at your own risk. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

Liability Limits. To the fullest extent permitted by law, neither ARTB412, nor our employees or directors shall be liable to you for any lost profits or revenues, or for any consequential, incidental, indirect, special or punitive damages arising out of or in connection with the Services or these Terms. In no event shall ARTB412’s aggregate liability for any damages exceed the greater of one hundred ($100) US Dollars or the amount you paid ARTB412 in the past twelve months. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

9. Indemnification

If ARTB412 gets sued because of something that you did, you agree to defend and indemnify us. That means you’ll defend ARTB412 (including any of our employees) and hold us harmless from any legal claim or demand (including reasonable lawyer’s fees) that arises from your actions, your use (or misuse) of our Services, your breach of the Terms or your account’s infringement of someone else’s rights.

We reserve the right to handle our legal defense however we see fit, even if you are indemnifying us, in which case you agree to cooperate with us so we can execute our strategy.

10. Disputes with Other Users

If you find yourself in a dispute with another user of ARTB412’s Services or a third party, we encourage you to contact the other party and try to resolve the dispute amicably.

Release of ARTB412. You release ARTB412 from any claims, demands and damages arising out of disputes with other users or parties.

11. Disputes with ARTB412

These rules will govern any legal dispute involving our Services:

A. Governing Law. The Terms are governed by the laws of the province of Ontario, Canada, without regard to its conflict of laws rules, and the laws of Canada. These laws will apply no matter where in the world you live.

B. Arbitration. You and ARTB412 agree that any dispute or claim arising from or relating to the Terms shall be finally settled by arbitration, using the English language.  Our arbitration will be handled by a sole arbitrator in accordance with those rules. Judgement on the arbitration award may be entered in any court that has jurisdiction. Any arbitration under the Terms will take place on an individual basis: class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You understand that by agreeing to the Terms, you and ARTB412 are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to bring an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable or conservatory relief, pending a final decision by the arbitrator.

C. Forum. We’re based in Ontario, Canada.  Any legal action against ARTB412 related to our Services must be filed and take place in Canada. That means the seat of any arbitration shall be Canada. For any actions not subject to arbitration, you and ARTB412 agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a province court.

If you are a government agent or entity in the Canada using the Services in your official capacity, and you are legally unable to agree to the clauses in this section, then those clauses do not apply to you. In that case, the Terms and any action related to the Terms will be governed by the laws Canada (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the province of Ontario.

12. Changes to the Terms

We may update these Terms from time to time. If we believe that the changes are material, we’ll definitely let you know by doing one (or more) of the following: (1) posting the changes through the Services or (2) sending you an email or message about the changes. That way you can decide whether you want to continue using the Services. Changes will be effective upon the posting of the changes. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any changes. Your use of the Services following the changes constitutes your acceptance of the updated Terms.

13. Some Finer Legal Points

The Terms, including all of the policies that make up the Terms, supersede any other agreement between you and ARTB412 regarding the Services. If any part of the Terms is found to be unenforceable, that part will be limited to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect. Our failure to enforce any part of the Terms is not a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of the Terms. We may assign any of our rights and obligations under the Terms.
