1. General – Rental not Purchase; Adult Agreement Required.
You agree and acknowledge that you are renting the Artworks and that ownership of, and title to, the Artworks remains with either the artist or Try it ART, as applicable, at all times unless and until a purchase of the Artwork is completed. Our Artworks may only be rented by adults over eighteen years old using a credit card or other approved payment method. We may, and currently, do, limit the number of Artworks that can be rented by you at any given time in our sole discretion.
2. Rental fees; Credit Card Authorizations.
The rental fee for an Artwork (“Rental Fee”) will be the rental fee, and delivery charges (if applicable) listed on the Site in connection with your rental of the Artworks. Upon your order to rent an Artwork, you hereby authorize us to charge your credit card for the Rental Fee at our convenience but within thirty (30) days of credit card authorization. In addition, at the time of your rental order of an Artwork, you hereby authorize Try it ART to charge your credit card for the entire then-current retail value of that Artwork set forth on the Website, plus sales taxes (if applicable) (“Retail Value”), provided that we will only change your credit card such Retail Value in the circumstances set forth in Section 4 below. Rental Fees exclude all federal, provincial, and applicable sales taxes, all of which shall be paid by you directly or, if paid by Try it ART, shall be remitted by you to Try it ART in connection with your order for the rental.
There is a minimum Rental Period of three (3) months. We will assume that you are enjoying an Artwork unless we hear otherwise from you. You agree that after the initial three (3) months charge, we may automatically renew your rental on a month-to-month basis and automatically charge you the Rental Fees for such renewal using the credit card associated with your rental at the beginning of each month.
3. Our commitments to You.
a. Delivery to you. Unless you entered into this agreement at our Bragg Creek Gallery and took the Artwork home with you, we will deliver the artwork you requested within 30 days of your order. Our liability to you for failure to deliver the Artwork as ordered is limited to the timely delivery of the Artwork as ordered or a refund of the Rental Fee or Purchase Price as determined by us. See Section 5(b) below.
b. Colour Reproduction. We make efforts to display the artwork and their colours as accurately as possible, but artwork may appear different in colour and texture than the photos displayed on our Website. Every artwork will be professionally evaluated in our sole discretion for any damage prior to delivery, which will be recorded by Try it ART.
c. Returns. With the delivery of the artwork, we will provide contact information to be used to arrange for the return transportation of the artwork after the rental period. Either you or Try it ART can request that the Artwork is returned to us at any time by notifying the other party. The Artwork will be picked up, or return packaging will be provided, within 30 days of notification at no additional fee to you. You will be responsible for all Rental Fees accrued up until the date the Artwork is returned to us.
d. Purchases: If you at any time decide to purchase the Artwork you are renting and Try it ART or the artist, as applicable, accepts your offer to purchase the Artwork, Try it ART will deliver to you a signed Certificate of Authenticity upon receipt of payment from you of the Retail Value of the Artwork, and title to such Artwork shall pass to you pursuant to Section 4(d).
e. In case Try it ART receives an offer to purchase by a third party for an artwork rented by you, you will have the right of first refusal to match the offer to purchase.
4. Your commitments to Us; Payment of retail value.
a. Receipt of the Artworks. Risk of loss for any Artwork that you rent from us transfers to you upon the earlier of delivery of such Artwork by us to you or to a common carrier or another delivery service. You acknowledge that a Secure Shipping Address (defined below) is highly required. A “Secure Shipping Address” is a location where an individual can physically receive Artwork(s) upon delivery. Try it ART does not bear liability for any Artworks left unattended upon and after delivery to the address You specify when you place your rental order. Furthermore, You acknowledge that providing anything other than a Secure Shipping Address may result in delivery delays and additional delivery fees for which you, and not Try it ART, will be responsible.
b. Use of the Artworks. You agree to treat each Artwork with great care as if it was your own. You are responsible for loss or damage to the Artworks due to theft, mysterious disappearance, fire, major stains or any other cause, including any alterations or modifications to the Artwork, other than ordinary wear and tear like minor scratches and/or minor damage to frames and/or damage to hanging devices (which shall also be deemed to be “normal wear and tear” as used herein). If you return an Artwork that is different from the Artwork we provided to you, including any Artwork that we, in our sole discretion, consider damaged beyond normal wear and tear, then you agree that we shall charge you, and you shall pay, the (a) the price for repairing the Artwork, as determined in our discretion, or (b) the Retail Value for the Artwork at the time such Artwork is returned.
c. Continued Rental. You agree to continued payment of the Rental Fee on a monthly basis until you notify Try it ART of your Rental termination and the Artwork is returned to Try it ART, or you notify Try it ART of your decision to purchase the Artwork and Try it ART receives payment from you of the Retail Value for such Artwork. Upon notification of a Rental termination, You agree to make the Artwork available for pick-up by Try it ART within 15 days.
d. Payment of Retail Value. We will not charge you an amount greater than the Retail Value at the time of damage for any charges arising under this Section 4, excluding collection costs. If you elect to purchase any Artwork that you are currently renting, your notification to us of your desire to purchase such Artwork shall constitute an offer to purchase such Artwork., as described in the Terms. If we accept your offer, you agree to pay us the full agreed upon price for such Artwork and, upon our receipt of your payment, title to such Artwork shall pass to you, pursuant to the Terms and these Rental Terms. For the avoidance of doubt, any Rental Fees that you have paid us will not apply to the purchase price or other amounts you owe to us pursuant to this Section 4. If you pay us the full Retail Value under this Section 4, including but not limited to payments for any damage to the Artwork under Section 4(b), and you still possess the Artwork, the Artwork is yours to keep, on an “AS IS” basis. For the avoidance of doubt, the limitations of this Section 4(d) shall not apply to the Rental Fee, which is charged separately from, and in addition to, any charges for the Retail Value pursuant to this Section 4.
e. Collections. If you do not pay the amounts you owe to us when due, then we will need to institute collection procedures. You agree to pay our costs of collection, including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees, if you do not pay amounts owed hereunder when due. Any amounts not paid when due shall bear interest at the lower of the rate of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate permitted by law.
f. Removal. We reserve the right to terminate your right to rent Artworks from us at any time in the event of your breach of these Rental Terms or for no reason or any other reason in our sole discretion.
