Only persons aged eighteen years or over may agree to these terms and use the web site or the services offered through the web site.

We may modify these terms at any time. We will post the modified terms on the web site. The modified terms will come into effect as soon as they are posted on the web site and use of the web site (or of any services provided through the web site) after that point will be subject to the modified terms.

Payment:
Paintings From Photos does not offer credit terms and all paintings must be paid for when ordered. We accept all major credit cards Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, MasterCard, Maestro and Solo. We do not currently accept American Express. We accept Paypal and you can also send us a cheque made payable to "The Big Art Company" - please note though that the cheque will have to clear before we start work on your painting which usually will add 3-4 days to our estimated delivery date.

Cancelling an order:
Once an order (20% deposit payment) has been paid for we will start painting within 1 working day. If you contact us before this time regarding cancelling your order, we will refund your deposit in full. After this point the deposit becomes non-refundable.

Delivery:
Delivery costs may vary depending on the final size and destination of the artwork. This cost will be made clear at the point of ordering. Delivery will be provided for by specialist couriers and they will require for someone to be present to sign and collect the artwork. It is the sole responsibility of the customer to ensure that someone is available to take delivery and Painting from Photos cannot be held responsible for any late, lost or unforeseeable event caused by a delivery date not being met. You shall be deemed to have accepted the goods after receiving delivery. It is your responsibility to check the delivery before signing for it and we cannot refund any damaged deliveries that have not been logged by the courier firm at the point of delivery.

Returns:
We will not accept returns without prior agreement and will only accept returns due to damaged canvases logged at receipt and informed to the couriers. On receipt of the returned item we will paint a new canvas and have that delivered to the same address.

Colour:
Whilst we try our very best to colour match every photo we cannot be held responsible for exact colour matching requirements. Colours may appear differently on your computer screen than ours (due to contrast, hue settings on your monitor) and you just can't colour match oil paints perfectly. We will not accept returns for colour related issues. If exact colour matching is important then we suggest contacting us to discuss your requirements for the painting.

Image cropping:
To fit your photo onto the specified canvas size we will often have to crop the original photo. Once we receive your order we will send you a compositional proof via email to clarify how the image will be cropped. If there are specific parts of the photo that you would like to keep on the front of the canvas you should let us know in advance.

Copyright:
It is the sole responsibility of the customer to ensure that any image that they present for transformation into a painting is copyright free or that the copyright is owned by the customer themselves. We will take no responsibility for any breach of copyright caused through painting an image supplied by a customer.

Privacy Policy:
Whilst we will need to take certain personal details such as contact and delivery information we will never pass this information over to any 3rd party (except for the needs of product delivery). All personal information will be kept in a secure environment and not be accessible via the internet. We do retain the right to use photos of your canvas as examples on the site. If you would not like your artwork displayed please contact us and we will remove it.
