Delivery is arranged by Dorota Bousquet to the address, as provided by you on the Order Confirmation.
Delivery times are estimates and not guaranteed. For example, our 48-hour delivery service states that the Artwork will be delivered within 2 business days but this is not a guaranteed service
Please contact us and confirm whether the address you wish to use for delivery qualifies for this before placing your order. There will be an extra charge for other delivery services, and delivery to any address outside EU
Multiple pieces of Artwork may be despatched individually.
Artists may offer a range of delivery options (different shipping methods and services) so please ensure that you, the Buyer, select the option you require. However, sometimes these options may be limited because of the type of Artwork or the country you want the Artwork to be shipped to. If you have any queries about shipping please contact Dorota Bousquet directly using the “contact ” form available on the Website.
Although you may have a choice of delivery options, where applicable (such as exercising certain consumer rights), only any basic delivery charges (the cheapest) paid by you are refundable, unless the Artwork that is supplied to you by the Artist is damaged or faulty.
If you have any particular shipping requirements then you must please contact Dorota Bousquet directly using the “contact” form available on the Website.
However, despatch and delivery times are only estimates and i'm not responsible for late delivery or unavailability of Artwork.
You are responsible for ensuring delivery information is accurate and for making arrangements to take delivery of Artwork. Risk in Artwork passes to you upon delivery of the Artwork.
Where you have not made any arrangements to take delivery and delivery has been attempted then you will be responsible for any additional delivery charges incurred.
Delivery of Artwork will usually be by a service which requires a signature (this usually must be someone aged 18 or over), on receipt. Your signature, or that of someone on your behalf, confirms receipt of the Artwork but also the state of the package received.
When you receive your order it is your responsibility to carefully examine both the package (before it is opened) and the Artwork for any damage. If there is any damage whatsoever or if, for example, a package shows signs of damage before it is opened, we highly recommend that you sign for the parcel, 'Received Damaged'. In the subsequent event that the Artwork is found to be damaged, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Every artwork will be shipped registered, which means your package is insured up to 500 euro’s. Before shipment, your artwork(s) and package(s) will be carefully checked and packed securely. Your total package includes your unframed artwork(s) and Certificate(s) of Authenticity, this is a piece of evidence that the artwork comes directly from the artist. Please, keep in mind that every country or area, such as the EU, will have its own price when shipping from The Netherlands. You will see you shipping costs at the check out facility.
Dorota Bousquet is not responsible for possible import duties or taxes when shipping abroad.
If you buy a painting of Dorota Bousquet without a frame, you will receive -as a present- a passe-partout: this is an extra border around the artwork. In this case, you only have to buy a frame to make the painting ready for hanging.
'Can a custom painting be shipped with a frame?'
Yes, in principle it is possible to send a custom artwork with a frame. However, sending an artwork included frame is always a risk: the glass can break during transport, even if it is well packed. How bigger the artwork, the higher risk of damage. The risk is therefore for the buyer, although the package will be as securely packed as possible.
Please, keep in mind that artworks from 50×60 cm will have higher shipping costs because now, this size will be considered as 'cargo / XL'. Would you like to know the exact shipping costs, looking at the size and country of destination? Please, send a message to email@example.com I will help you from here!

7. CONSUMER CANCELLATION RIGHTS
This clause only applies to you if you are a Consumer and want to exercise your Consumer cancellation rights.
Consumer rights legislation means that Consumers (individuals buying wholly or mainly outside their trade, business, craft or profession) who buy at a distance (such as via a Website) have the right to cancel some orders for purchase. If this applies, then you usually have 14 days from the date you receive your order to change your mind, cancel the order and, where applicable, return the items to tDorota Bousquet, to obtain a refund. Dorota Bousquet (seller) a committed to ensuring that they abide by your rights.
If you are unsure as to whether you are purchasing as a Consumer please check this before placing your order. You can contact Dorota Bousquet directly using the “contact” form available on the Website or email firstname.lastname@example.org or by post.
If you would like to return your order, please confirm this in writing by contacting Dorota Bousquet directly using the “contact” form available on the Website or emailing me at email@example.com within 14 days following the date you received your order.

However, once you have cancelled in writing, items can be returned to the Artist (see clause following) although we do advise you to contact us first, before simply returning an item so that we can help you to return the Artwork.
Artwork should be returned unused and in perfect condition with the original packaging, within 14 days of the date you advise us of your cancellation, at your expense to Dorota Bousquet using the postal address as provided on the invoice. I always advise that you return Artwork using a service which provides you with proof of sending.
Unless your item is faulty or we have agreed otherwise with you prior to you returning the Artwork, then you will be responsible for the costs in returning the item to Dorota Bousquet.
We ask that you please repackage the Artwork in its original packaging securely, to guard against damages, and remove all shipping labels and, where applicable, print the address and shipping label I send to you via email on behalf of the Artist and attach to the parcel.
The law enables sellers (Dorota Bousquet) to deduct an amount from your refund if you have diminished the value of Artwork by handling it beyond what is necessary to establish its nature, characteristics and function – i.e. “unreasonable use”.
Unless you have lost the right to cancel, when you cancel an order for Artwork we will refund the amount you paid for the Artwork and the standard delivery costs (the cheapest option we provide). So, for example, if you have chosen any express or next day delivery options you will only be reimbursed the amount of our standard delivery
Refunds are made using the same payment method that you used to pay us. Please bear in mind that some payment methods mean that a refund may take up to 7 days to reach your account.
