PRIVACY

ArtTravels complies fully with all relevant Data Protection and consumer legislation and treats all personal information as fully confidential. We collect your personal information (for example, your name, email address etc) when you subscribe to our mailing list, enter competitions and provide feedback; when you place orders, we collect your name, email and delivery address and payment details, to service your order. Personal information is stored on secure servers, and details such as credit card, name and address are encrypted.

ArtTravels will not share your details with third parties unless you give us permission to do so.

ArtBoutique ORDERS

Orders will be charged to your account on dispatch of goods. All credit and charge-card payments are subject to checks and authorisation by the card issuer; if the issuer does not authorise payment, your order will be cancelled and ArtTravels will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

 

Please note that stock levels shown on the website are a guide only, that product colour may be different from that shown due to variation caused by your computer screen or device, and that any colour swatches provided are supplied as a guide only. In the rare event that a product ordered has been listed with incorrect details or is supplied to ArtTravels in different packaging than shown, we’ll inform you prior to dispatch and ask you to confirm your order or cancel it. If we cannot get hold of you, we will cancel the order and will either not take payment from you or give you a full refund, as applicable.

We reserve the right to refuse an order at our discretion, and cannot be held liable for withdrawing any goods, materials or content from the site.

ArtBoutique DELIVERY

ArtTravels dispatches orders every working day. Working days are Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays. Standard Delivery takes between 3 and 5 working days to most areas of mainland Britain. We also offer Next Day and Same Day delivery options were available.

We will send an email to the address you provided on registration (as may be updated) when your order has been dispatched, including any information on how to track your order.

Delivery notes are passed onto the courier to assist them in delivering your order. They are not instructions that the courier will always follow. 

We insure each purchase during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to the specified delivery address. Once your order has been delivered to the specified delivery address, the contract between ArtTravels and yourself will be marked as fulfilled and the responsibility from that stage has transferred onto you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfilment by ArtTravels and transfer of responsibility in the same way.

Our couriers can deliver to certain destinations without collecting a signature. If this option applies to your delivery address, you can update your preference on the shipping page at the checkout by entering a delivery note before proceeding to purchase. By instructing the courier to leave your order in a safe place, you agree to our terms and conditions and take full responsibility for any loss or damage that may occur.

ArtTravels does not accept any liability for failure or delay in delivering goods or for any damage or defect to goods, in each case, that is caused by any event or circumstance beyond its reasonable control.

International & EU Delivery

We have temporarily paused orders to EU & International destinations whilst we upgrade our systems to meet the new export rules. We are working hard to keep this break as short as possible so we can be back up and running as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience.

UK Delivery Information

Free delivery to all until further notice. 

TRACKING

We’ll send you an email when we dispatch your goods. Please email our customer care team for your tracking number. You can also track the progress of your order on the website under My Account.
