The characteristics of the Works and format are detailed in individual cards available in the various categories of the e-shop proposed at the address shop.andreasgaertner.de. The purchaser is held to take note of these characteristics before placing order. The Works are delivered without framing or finishing touches.
The colours of the art Work may vary between the display on the Buyer's screen and the physical prints received by the Buyer. This is due to the wide variety of monitor technologies available and their ability to render all colours of the spectrum. Andreas Gärtner uses a calibrated screen with colors that conform to the results on paper. Andreas Gärtner cannot be held responsible if the colours of the prints do not conform to what the Buyer sees on his screen.

After this period and if these formalities have not been respected, the works will be deemed to be in conformity and free of any apparent defect and no claim can be accepted by the Seller. The Seller will reimburse or replace, as soon as possible and at his own expense.
The transfer of the risks of loss and deterioration relating thereto will only be carried out at the time when the Buyer takes physical possession of the Work.
