Please note however that a small number of banks does not yet offer instant bank transfers using Sofort. To find out whether your bank supports this service, you can find more information at: https://www.sofort.com/ger-DE/general/fuer-kaeufer/fragen-und-antworten/
If you wish to pay in advance by bank transfer, we will provide our bank details in the order confirmation. The amount invoiced must be transferred to our German bank account within 10 days.
All payments must be made in Euros. UrbanArt 24 UG (haftunsbeschränkt) is not responsible for potential differences between the amount charged to the user in his or her local currency and the amount indicated by currency conversion tools, whether made available by us or accessed elsewhere. Users should be aware that currency conversions are subject to fluctuating rates. We shall not be liable in any case for the costs of a cash transaction or for foreign exchange losses due to fluctuations in conversion rates.
Most of the products offered are subject to special tax arrangements in accordance with Section 25 UStG (German Value Added Tax Act). If this is not the case, a notification will be included on the product page and on the invoice, and the price shall include the currently valid rate of German VAT.
For items subject to special tax arrangements, it is not possible to specify the VAT part of the purchase price separately in the invoice.
The goods remain our property until payment has been made in full.
Should you default on payment, we are entitled to charge interest on arrears.
VIII Delivery times, deliveries, terms of delivery, postage/shipping charges
Deliveries take 3-7 working days within Germany, 7-14 working days within Europe, and 7-14 working days for the rest of the world. In the event of a delay, we shall inform you in writing (usually by email).
In general, shipments to locations in Germany and other EU countries (excluding islands and special regions) are free of charge.

You, as customer, are responsible for paying any applicable duties, taxes and storage costs. If you have any questions about duties or import clearance, please contact your country's local customs authority.
In general, artworks (mostly prints) are rolled up and sent in mailing tubes.
Any deviation from the above-mentioned general handling costs, delivery periods and shipping methods (shipped "flat" as item cannot be rolled or is large) will be listed on the product's page.
The buyer must inspect the goods immediately for damage and notify the deliverer if any is found before accepting delivery. If obvious damage exists, and is noticed for the first time after accepting delivery, the buyer must notify us within five days of accepting delivery. If the buyer fails to do this, any claims for compensation for this obvious damage are excluded.
For administrative reasons, UrbanArt 24 UG (haftungsbeschränkt) may send the certificate of authenticity (COA), if the artwork has one, to the buyer separately (possibly at a later point in time). This does not affect the cancellation period. Should the customer decide to exercise their right of cancellation, he or she must also immediately return the certificate of authenticity in an unused state. If the certificate is not sent, there can be no refund of the purchase price. If the certificate is used or destroyed, the customer's right of cancellation shall lapse.
Transfer of risk: the risk of unforeseeable loss or damage and accidental deterioration of the goods ordered is transferred to the customer on handover of the goods to the customer or a recipient designated by him or her. This applies whether or not the shipment is covered by insurance. In other cases, the risk of unforeseeable loss or damage and accidental deterioration of the goods ordered passes to the buyer upon handover or, if the goods are shipped, once the goods are handed over to the carrier or other person or organisation designated to carry out the shipment.

Some of the illustrations only show sections of the works. Sizes are approximate figures given in centimetres (cm), and are written in the form width x height as is standard international practice. Copying or reproducing our photos is permitted only with our written consent.
The author may not be held responsible for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Any liability claims against the author relating to damages of a material or immaterial nature caused by the use or non-use of the information provided, or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are fundamentally excluded, provided there is no evidence of wilful intent or gross negligence on the part of the author.

REFERENCES AND LINKS
In the case of direct or indirect links to other websites ("hyperlinks") that are outside the area of responsibility of the author, the author is only liable for content if he or she had knowledge of this content and it was technically possible and reasonable for the author to prevent the use of illegal content. The author hereby expressly declares that at the time of linking, no illegal content was found on the linked pages.

We carefully checked all links to external sites when creating the page. No unlawful content was apparent at the time the links were created. However, we have no influence on the content of linked pages, for which their respective operators are solely responsible. If any of the hyperlinks lead to illegal content, please inform us by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then examine the links and remove them if necessary.
