  1. Sales of Products by Curious Mum

Curious Mum offers a platform for Vendors to sell their Products for sale on The images of the Products on the Site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer’s display of the colours accurately reflect the colour of the Products. Your Products may vary slightly from those images and the depiction of Products with accessories, ie. frames may be used for illustrative purposes only. You are advised to check that the Product you would like to purchase includes such accessories or not before placing the order. The packaging of the Products may vary from that shown on images on our site. All Products shown on our site are subject to availability. We will inform you by e-mail as soon as possible if the Product you have ordered is not available and we will not process your order.

  1. Orders and Specifications

The Vendor is informed by Curious Mum each time his Artwork was subject of an order. All Products are offered for sale subject to availability and subject to the Vendors acceptance of the Order.

The Buyer receives an email confirmation that states that the order has been accepted. No Order shall be deemed accepted by the Vendor unless and until it is confirmed unconditionally by the Vendor in the Order Confirmation.

The Vendor agrees to confirm and/or deny the availability of Product(s) ordered by the Buyer within 3 working days of receipt of the information. In the event that the same product has been ordered by several buyers at once, and depending on the availability of this Product, it will be sold to the first Buyer that submitted his order. The order will be invalidated for the other Buyers.

Once the availability of the Product(s) is confirmed or denied by the Vendor, Curious Mum will send an Order Confirmation to the Buyer via email.

In the event of confirmation of availability of the Product(s) by the Vendor, the condition subsequently tied to the sales contract between the Buyer and the Vendor is lifted; The Buyer agrees to make payment for the Product; the Vendor agrees to deliver the Products or make them available at the point of sale within the period specified once Curious Mum confirms receipt of payment.

In the absence of confirmation of availability of the Product(s) within 3 working days, or if the Product is no longer available or because of an error in the price on our site as referred to in point 7.,  we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.

Non-receipt of payment by Curious Mum within 5 working days from the date of confirmation from the Vendor of availability of the artwork, the contract between the Buyer and the Vendor is automatically terminated and both parties shall be released from their requirements.

We reserve the right to amend the specifications of any of the Products without prior notice. Additionally, given the unique, hand-crafted nature of the Products sold on Curious Mum, the exact size of Products may alter slightly from piece to piece and from the official Products dimensions listed on the Curious Mum Site.

    7.  Price and Payment

The purchase price of the Product is determined by the Vendor. Payment must be made by PayPal, credit card or debit card at the time of placing an Order to Curious Mum. Payment in full will be taken at this time and the Contract will be in force. Curious Mum will transfer the funds to the Vendor within 30 days after the sale is complete and the Buyer has confirmed the receipt of the Product. Curious Mum will retain a commission for selling Artwork which is agreed with the Vendor prior to publicising his work.

The Buyer undertakes that all details provided to the Vendor for the purpose of the Order and its delivery will be correct and that the chosen method of payment is the property of the Vendor and that sufficient funds or credit facilities are available to cover the full cost of the Products ordered.

Any credit towards payment is accumulated and may only be applied at the sole discretion of the Vendor. Curious Mum reserves the right to limit, invalidate, or deny the application of credit to a purchase or rental at any time. The Vendor may amend, invalidate, or terminate the conditions for accumulation of credits at any time in its sole discretion.

Any discounts or promotions are offered subject to availability and may be terminated or amended at any time by Curious Mum.

It is always possible that, despite reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If an error in the price of the Products has been discovered, the Buyer will be informed of this error and will be given the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling the Order. Curious Mum will not process the Order until instructions from the Buyer have been received. If we are unable to contact the Buyer using the contact details provided during the order process, Curious Mum will treat the order as cancelled and notify the Buyer in writing.

The Vendor agrees to provide to Curious Mum, who will then forward to the Buyer, the name of the carrier dealing with the transport of the Product to the Buyer as well as the tracking number of the package. This allows the Buyer to track the status of the order on the carrier’s website, provided that the carrier offers a package tracking service. In that case Products are transported at the Vendor’s risk.

The Buyer must inspect the Products on delivery and, in the case where Products have been delivered by courier, sign the required proof of delivery document or collection acceptance document if required. A signature on that document will constitute conclusive evidence against the Buyer of receipt of the quantity of Products indicated on that document free from any apparent defect or damage. If the Products are alleged to be damaged or defective on delivery, a description of the alleged damage or defect must be given in writing at the time of delivery and signed by or on behalf of the Buyer.

If the Buyer wrongfully fails to take delivery of the Products, the Vendor shall be under no obligation to refund the Price.

   10.   Risk of Damage and Transfer of Products

Risk of damage to or loss of the Products will pass to the Buyer on delivery at the agreed address.

Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the Products, property in the Products will not pass from the Vendor until the Vendor has received full payment of the Price and all other sums which are due, owing or payable by the Buyer to the Vendor in respect of the Contract or any other Contract between the Vendor and the Buyer.
