2. We may contract with you either as agent of the relevant artist(s) or as principal if we are the seller. No contract shall exist between you and us for the sale of any goods until we acknowledge your Order, confirming availability of the goods and acceptance of your order. These Terms represent the entire agreement between us.

3. By placing an order for any goods with age restrictions, you declare that you are age eighteen or over in order to purchase the goods.

4. The price and description of the goods are displayed on our Site and in the galleries.  Such information is subject to change without notice.

6. If an error is discovered in the price of the goods that you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible.  In the event that you order an item and the price published on the Site is incorrect for any reason, we will contact you to let you know the correct price and ask you whether you still wish us to fulfil your order at this price.  We shall be under no obligation to fulfil an order for a product which was advertised at an incorrect price.  We shall give you the option of confirming the order at the correct price or if you so choose, to cancel the order altogether.  If you cancel, we shall refund the full amount in accordance with these Terms.
