What is Artboost?

Artboost is an online meeting place where art lovers come to meet artists and buy art pieces directly from them.

Artboost facilitates solely the contact between you and the seller and is therefore not a part in the buying and selling agreement between the two of you.

Artboost is at your service on behalf of Artboost ApS, Danish CVR company-id 35 41 42 23, Founders House, Njalsgade 19D, 1st fl, 2300 Copenhagen S, Denmark.

What is Artboost Limited?

Artboost Limited is the type of crowdfunding that enables artists to produce a limited edition serie, high quality prints for a single artwork. The goal of each Artboost Limited is to reach a certain number of orders for a piece, so that the production/print run is guaranteed. If the limited does not reach the required number of orders, it will be canceled and the customers who ordered will not be charged. As an artist, if your limited edition receives the number of orders necessary to go to print, we will produce and distribute the work for you.

Your information

Personal data

Artboost reserves the right to share your data with other under following circumstances:

  • When you purchase an art piece, the seller will gain access to the data (address, email, phone number) visible to you during the order-process. 
  • When you create your profile on Artboost, some of the personal information you input will be part of your public profile. By using your profile on Artboost to navigate the site, comment on and boost art pieces, your public information will be directly visible to other visitors to the site.

We allow users to share images from the website on e.g. social media and blogs, but we encourage everyone to link and refer to Artboost, and always always credit the artist. It’s not just polite, it’s an essential condition of the use of our site.

Purchasing of art pieces

When you purchase an artwork on Artboost, the money will be withdrawn from you as soon as the artist/seller accepts the purchase. If the artist does not respond to the purchase within 10 working days, we may feel obligated to cancel the sale. Though, you can always try to purchase again. 

During the buying process on Artboost, you initiate the process by requesting the seller to sell the artwork, contrary to a regular buying process art where the seller offers you to buy. This difference is significant in the sense that it means that the seller can refuse to sell you an artwork, even though you have initiated the buying-process.

This process has been chosen by Artboost, partly because the process is not directly regulated by Artboost and therefore requires a different method of reaching consensus between buyer and seller. Furthermore, sellers often sell unique artworks that may already have been sold elsewhere.

When buying an artwork from an international seller, beware that you might be liable for customs and taxes.  

In order to make a purchase, you are required to set up an Artboost account with an email and password. Through your Artboost account, you will be able to easily track the status of your orders. 

Payment

When a seller approves your request, you are obliged to complete the payment. Likewise, once the payment is complete, the seller is obliged to deliver the artwork in accordance with the terms and conditions chosen during the order process.

When the seller confirm shipment of an artwork, it is legally binding to complete the shipment, and the order is thereby regarded as complete. Some sellers may choose to offer return, which give you further options. The seller is not obliged to provide an option of returns – to read more about this, proceed to returns policy. 

Artboost does not guarantee that information provided by sellers are correct.
