MesArt User Agreement
By using our website, you indicate your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this agreement. Please read them carefully. Additional terms apply to MesArt account holders (for those, please see the Member Agreement).
The MesArt website acts as a venue for sellers and buyers to enable buyers to make purchases based on the sellers' listings. Our involvement in the transaction between the buyer and the seller is limited to facilitating the transfer of payment in these transactions. Because of this, we have no control over the quality, safety, legality of the advertised items, the truth and accuracy of the listings, and the ability of sellers to sell items. We cannot control whether or not sellers will complete the sale of the items they offer.
As a buyer, you are bound by this agreement as well as by the conditions of the sale included in the item's description.
You may purchase art directly from artists, or through our online website ordering capability.
If you are purchasing art through our online website ordering capability, you have a seven day customer acceptance period to ensure your complete satisfaction with the artwork. You can return artwork to the seller within this period. If you decide to do so, you will have to ship it back to the artist at your expense. MesArt follows up to confirm that the seller received the art in the same condition as it was originally shipped, and then we refund the purchase amount to you.
