General terms and conditions
Thank you for your interest in my products! Below are the terms and conditions that apply to your purchase, they are here to explain your rights and if you have any questions you are always welcome to contact me and I will be happy to explain how this works. What is covered here are things such as who you are purchasing from, how to make an order, prices, shipping and delivery, right to withdrawal and warranties. I hope that you will enjoy your purchase!
These general terms and conditions (the “General Conditions”) apply when you (“Customer” or “you”) place an order from Rui Santos Costa Fine art Prints (“RSC”, “Company”, “me” or “I”) on loja.rscosta.org, (the “Website”).
I sell products to multiple jurisdictions and these General Conditions are set out to be global. Still, depending on the jurisdiction in which you live, a mandatory law may also apply. I respect such applicable laws and nothing in these General Conditions shall be seen as a limitation of your mandatory statutory rights if such laws provide greater rights for you than set out here.
When you receive an order confirmation from me your purchase order is accepted and a purchase agreement is entered into. I encourage you to save the order confirmation for any future contacts with the site. I may deny a purchase order for various reasons, for example, if you provide incorrect personal data and/or have a record for non-payment of debt.
You may withdraw your order until it has been confirmed by me. I will then refund any payment that you, or your or credit card company, have made for the order.
I may cancel an order if the products ordered are sold out. I will then refund any amount paid and notify you about equivalent products if such are available.
All products ordered remain my property until we have received full payment for them.
Customer information etc.
You are responsible for that the personal data that you provide me with is correct and complete.
You are responsible for all purchases made with your login details. So make sure that you keep the login details secret and that no unauthorised persons have access to them. Let me know if you suspect that an unauthorised person has obtained access to your login details.
Prices, fees etc.
The prices indicated on the Website apply to orders placed on the Website. All prices are in the currency stated on the Website and don’t include VAT. If nothing else is stated on the Website the prices do not include payment- or shipping fees and these are given separately. Please note also that local charges (such as currency conversion fees, credit or bank card fees, sales tax, customs duty etc.) may apply depending on where you live and local regulations. Such charges are at your expense and will not be refunded by me.
From time to time I may, for specific products, offer more favourable conditions than those provided for in these General Conditions, for example with regards to the extended right of withdrawal or free returns. Such more favourable conditions are valid only for a limited duration of time, until the specific products are sold out, and may be cancelled by me at any time, and if I do so these General Conditions will apply without amendments.
Shipping and delivery
Products are printed on demand and are normally delivered within the number of working days shown on the Website. The expected delivery time for an order may or may not be set out in the order confirmation. In the case of abnormal delay in delivery, I will inform you and continue to monitor the order. You may cancel the order if a delivery is delayed for more than 15 days and the delay is not due to you.
Depending on the delivery method you may be required to pick up the order at a specific delivery point. You are required to do so within the time specified in the notification of delivery. If you do not pick up the delivery in time you may be charged a fee and the order may be sent back to me at your expense. I may also cancel the order if the delivery is not picked up in time.
Right to Withdrawal
You may withdraw your order by notifying me within 30 days from the day that you received the ordered products. You must then send me a withdrawal notification containing your name, address, e-mail address, the order number and a specification of which products that the withdrawal relates to, for example by using the general contact web form on the Website. You must then also, immediately and within 30 days from the date of the withdrawal notification, return the withdrawn products to me at your expense. You are responsible for the condition of the products during the shipment back to me and I therefore strongly recommend that you send these well packaged, in good condition and in their original box and/or packaging.
When an order is withdrawn by you, I will refund the price that you have paid for the products withdrawn, including any shipping costs for standard delivery to you (meaning the cheapest available method of delivery so you will not get a refund for extra costs due to that you have opted for express delivery or something similar). From the amount to be refunded we will, however, deduct any depreciation in value of the products if such depreciation is due to that you have handled them to a greater extent than necessary to determine their function or characteristics. Shipping costs are further only refunded if the withdrawn products are a whole order and are therefore not refunded if you cancel only parts of an order. I will pay the amount to be refunded as soon as possible and within 21 days of the withdrawal notification. I will, however, delay the payment until I have received the withdrawn products in the original shape ad condition. The refund will be paid by Paypal or bank transfers.
Your right to withdrawal does not apply to contracts which:
- relate to a service which has been fully performed, if by placing the order you have consented to a commencement of performance of the service and acknowledged that there would be no right to withdrawal after the performance of the service;
- relate to goods or a service for which the price is dependent on fluctuations in the market which I cannot control and which may occur during the period between you receiving the withdrawn products and your notification to me of the withdrawal of the order;
- relate to goods which have been manufactured in accordance with your specifications or which otherwise are clearly personalised;
- relate to goods which, after delivery, by their nature, are such that they are mixed with other items so that the items cannot be separated;
- relate to digital content which is supplied other than on a tangible medium, if you have expressly consented to delivery in such way and acknowledged that there would be no right to withdrawal;
Warranty and Complaints
Some of my products may come with warranties. Information about such warranties is provided on the Website or in these General Conditions. The order confirmation is the certificate of warranty. My warranties cover only original manufacturing defects and accordingly not faults arising upon or after any individual changes of the function and/or appearance of the products, such as rebuilding, upgrading or other configuration of the products.
You may, within 2 years (or such longer period prescribed by applicable mandatory law) from the day that you received the products, file complaints regarding products that are defective according to applicable consumer protection legislation. You must then send me a complaint containing your name, address, e-mail address, the order number and a specification of the products that the complaint relates to, for example by using the web form on the Website. You must also file the complaint as soon as possible after the discovery of the defect. Any filing of a complaint made within two months from the discovery of the defect will always be considered filed in due time.
I will refund you for defective products in accordance with applicable consumer protection legislation and carry the cost for return delivery of the products to me. I strive to perform such refund within 30 days from receipt of a complaint and finding that a refund shall be made, but this time may be delayed depending on the nature of the product. I also strive to comply with any guidelines regarding defective products provided by the relevant national consumer protection authorities. The refund will be paid with the same payment method that you used to pay the order for the complaint products unless otherwise agreed.
Limitation of Liability
Where the applicable mandatory law does not provide otherwise, my liability is limited to direct damages and under no circumstances am I liable for indirect damages such as loss of earnings etc.
Intellectual Property Rights
The Website and all its content is owned by me or my licensors and protected by intellectual property and marketing legislation. This means that trademarks, company names, product names, images and graphics, design, layout and information on products, services and other content may not be copied or used without my prior written consent.

Changes to the General Conditions

Governing law and disputes
In the event of a dispute, I strive to comply with any decision by the relevant national consumer protection authorities.
Any dispute regarding the interpretation or application of these General Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the country or state where I conduct my business and shall be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the court at the place of our incorporation. “Non-exclusive jurisdiction” means that you may bring a claim against me in another jurisdiction if provided by applicable mandatory law.
