Urban Artist Market Vendor Terms of Use

This document and the other documents that we reference below make up our Terms of Use (Terms). Heretofore, our artists will be referred to as vendors and our shoppers will be referred to as buyers. The Vendor Terms are a legally binding contract between our vendors and the Urban Artist Market. This contract sets out your rights and responsibilities when you use UrbanArtistMarket.com, so please read it carefully. By using any of our Services you’re agreeing to the Terms. 

Urban Artist Market Online Return Policy

A return is described as the action of returning the purchased item for ANY reason of dissatisfaction. The Urban Artist Market site policy requires a 30-day period from date of purchase for such a return and is the minimum policy enforced through the terms of the Urban Artist Market Online. After that date, the vendor has the option to deny a return. If you, the vendor, choose to extend your return policy it should be noted on the Store Policies page in your gallery.

The Urban Artist Market follows these procedures with a return:

  • The original quoted price of the item will be refunded in full to the buyer for any reason within 30- days of purchase via the merchant account.
  • The initial shipping fee is non-refundable and the buyer will be responsible for paying the return shipping. 
  • The vendor will not be refunded the cost of the listing fee for the product. However, they will be able to reactivate the listing after the return is received free of cost.
  • Urban Artist Market will fully refund the appropriate value fee relating to the vendor membership level.

Shipping Policy

The Urban Artist Market provides estimated shipping services through the United States Postal Service. Some vendors may provide alternate shipping methods. In that case, they are required to outline their shipping methods on the Store Policies page in your gallery. 

Vendors must follow the following procedures:

  • Provide an accurate “shipping from” address and have it clearly displayed on package.
  • Specify your shipping costs and processing times in their listings. Ship items promptly after they are sold. Prompt shipping means that vendors ship each item within 10 days of purchase, unless otherwise specified on their Store Policies page.
  • Before vendors update their processing time for a specific order, they must first obtain their buyer’s consent.
 Comply with all local and international shipping and customs regulations.
  • Ship to the address listed on the order.

  • Charge an appropriate amount for shipping. US sellers can use calculated shipping to have shipping costs calculated automatically. Vendors are not permitted to add handling fees to their shipping estimate.
  • It is strongly encouraged for Vendors to insure their shipping for the minimum value of the product and transaction.
  • In the unlikely event an order does not arrive, vendors should be prepared to provide valid proof of shipping. Valid proof of shipping must show that the item actually was shipped and that it was sent to the address provided. If a buyer does not receive their order, they may file a refund against your shop. 
  • The Urban Artist Market is not liable for any items lost in transit.

Your Vendor’s Account with Urban Artist Market

You’ll need to create a Vendors account with Urban Artist Market to use our Services and open a gallery. Here are a few rules about accounts:

  • You’re solely responsible for any activity on your account. If you’re sharing an account with other people, then the person whose financial information is on the account will ultimately be responsible for all activity. If you’re registering as a business entity, you personally guarantee that you have the authority to agree to the Terms on behalf of the business. Also, your accounts are not transferable.

Termination

  • Termination by Vendor.

If we do so, it’s important to understand that you don’t have a contractual or legal right to continue to use our Services, for example, to sell or buy on our websites or mobile apps.

Indemnification

We hope this never happens, but if Urban Artist Market gets sued because of something that you did, you agree to defend and indemnify us. That means you’ll defend Urban Artist Market (including any of our employees) and hold us harmless from any legal claim or demand (including reasonable attorney’s fees) that arises from your actions, your use (or misuse) of our Services, your breach of the Terms, or you or your account’s infringement of someone else’s rights.

We reserve the right to handle our legal defense however we see fit, even if you are indemnifying us, in which case you agree to cooperate with us so we can execute our strategy.

Disputes with Buyers or Other Vendors

  • If you find yourself in a dispute with a buyer or another vendor on Urban Artist Market, we encourage you to contact the other party and try to resolve the dispute amicably.
  • Vendors and buyers who are unable to resolve a dispute related to a transaction on our websites may participate in our case system. Urban Artist Market will attempt to help you resolve disputes in good faith and based solely on our interpretation of our policies, in our sole discretion; we will not make judgments regarding legal issues or claims. Urban Artist Market has no obligation to resolve any disputes. 
  • You release Urban Artist Market from any claims, demands, and damages arising out of disputes with other users or parties.

Disputes with Urban Artist Market

  • If you’re upset with us, let us know, and hopefully we can resolve your issue. But if we can’t, then you agree to use a third-party case system to resolve the issue. Any arbitration or mediation under the Terms will take place on an individual basis — class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. 
  • You understand that by agreeing to the Terms, you and Urban Artist Market are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action or class arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to bring an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable or conservatory relief, pending a final decision by the arbitrator or mediator. You may instead assert your claim in “small claims” court, but only if your claim qualifies, your claim remains in such court, and your claim remains on an individual, non-representative, and non-class basis.

Changes to the Terms

  • Occasionally, we update our Terms. If we believe that the changes are material, we’ll definitely inform you by posting the changes and/or sending you an email or message about the changes. That way you can decide whether you want to continue using the Services. Changes will be effective upon the posting of the changes unless otherwise specified. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any changes. Your use of the Services following the changes constitutes your acceptance of the updated Terms.
