The price indicated on navigating the Ultrashop.fr website does not include the shipping fees for delivering the work, unless specifically stipulated otherwise. These shipping fees result in additional charges applied during the checkout process, they are subject to VAT at the rate in effect.

For any work shipped beyond the European Union and French overseas departments and territories, customs duties or other local taxes may be payable.

Conclusion of the contract
For most of the works, the print is made to order for the customer. Withdrawal cannot be exercised apart from the copyright generated. In exercising this right of withdrawal, the customer must return all the documents delivered. If the latter omits to return any or parts of the documents, reimbursement cannot take place. According to article L121-20-2 of the French Consumer Code contracts relating to the “supply of clearly personalised goods […]” are not subject to the right of withdrawal. Any work produced by Ultrashop benefits from the legal guarantee of conformity under articles L.211-4 to L.211-14 of the French Consumer Code and the legal guarantee against hidden defects under articles 1641 to 1649 of the Civil Code. Under these guarantees Ultrashop agrees to exchange it. The guarantee does not cover any damage, breakage or dysfunction resulting from failure to observe precautions for use. The order is considered definitive from when Ultrashop sends email confirmation to the customer, and the sale of the work will not be recognised until after the customer has paid the corresponding price. The data recorded by the website constitutes proof of all transactions between Ultrashop.fr and its customers. Archiving of communications, order forms and bills is carried out on a reliable medium.

Work and property
Work of art and use

Change of order
Any change made to an order, regarding the delivery address or any other information after confirmation, is subject to acceptance by our services. We inform the customer immediately if it is conceivable and what the changes and additional costs are.
Transport and delivery
Each work is packaged according to its individual nature. The delivery fees are the customer’s responsibility in full and vary according to the place of delivery, the number of works and formats. Additional costs may be added for any delivery scheduled in any place requiring special attention. These costs are indicated on the order summary page. The delivery address designated by the customer may be different from the billing address. We deliver to the address indicated by the customer when ordering. All delivery estimates at the time of the order validation and confirmation are subject to change. The production of a work of art made to order may be delayed depending on its constituent elements. You will be informed of any marked change. A possible delay does not give the customer the right to cancel or refuse an order, or to seek damages. Ultrashop.fr cannot be held responsible for consequences due to delayed dispatch. The entire order is sent where possible in one batch. Ultrashop.fr reserves the right to choose its carrier. The delivery times advised in the characteristics of the works for sale are only a guideline. Any estimation cannot be rebuked due to the artisanal character of the production. The maximum delivery time for products sold on Ultrashop.fr is 12 months. As soon as the order is received, the customer or anyone authorised by the customer is required to verify the received goods and implicate the carrier in the event of damage before accepting it. If the box is slightly damaged from impact, the customer specifies it with precise and detailed information. For example “upper left corner a little crushed” or “wet cardboard”. Quoting “received pending unpacking” is not sufficient for a claim. Check the content of the package. If the work is damaged, do not sign the delivery note. These concerns must be communicated within the 48 hrs following delivery at: firstname.lastname@example.org. and must be confirmed at the same time to the carrier by registered mail with acknowledgment of receipt. Ultrashop may potentially ask the customer to provide a photo of the damaged parts to enable appropriate action to be taken. The products may be returned in their original packaging or in equivalent packaging. No claims are acceptable if the delivery note is signed. All parcels are insured and delivered by contractors.
