USEUM Terms and Conditions of Use

New terms were last amended on the 6th of October, 2014.

It is important that you understand and accept Our Terms and Conditions of Use. In order to assist you, We provide below a summary of the points which seem to Us to be the main ones of which you need to be aware, but the summary is by no means comprehensive, nor binding on us, and We recommend that you read through the Full Terms and Conditions of Use.

These Terms are in addition to Our Privacy Policy and, so, please read both.



Our Platform, which includes Our website and any other means of your accessing Our data, has three levels of access, which are:

  • a) as a Guest (to which Part I applies), who is a visitor to USEUM but, as an unregistered member, cannot upload Content (artwork or comments, for example) on to Our Platform;

  • b) as an Art Lover (to which Parts I and II apply), who is a registered member and can upload Content, provided that it is done without infringement of other people’s Intellectual Property Rights; and

  • c) an Art Copyright Owner (to which Parts I, II and III apply), who is a registered member and has the same uploading rights as an Art Lover and, in addition, can upload Content in which the member actually own the rights or are authorised to upload. In particular, an Art Copyright Owner is a member of USEUM who has registered as an Artist, or as an Artist’s Representative or as a Museum’s Representative, or as a Collection’s Representative.

You must be over 18 to access any adult themed Content.

You agree to use Our Platform and any links from it for lawful purposes only and in a way which does not infringe the rights of anyone else or restrict or inhibit anyone else’s use and enjoyment of the Platform and such links. For example, you must not infringe Our Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) or those of anyone else; Paragraph 2 includes terms and conditions on that point. The last section of this Summary explains about IPRs.

In addition, if you are a rights holder and have found Content on Our Platform which you believe breaches your rights, then please refer to sub-paragraph 2.7.

The terms for adding Content to Our Platform appear under paragraph 13 for Art Lovers and under paragraphs 16 to 21 for Art Copyright Owners.

We provide the Platform and Content for private and non-commercial use by an individual only.

Products can be purchased from the USEUM Shop, for example, those created by Art Copyright Owners and Us, as explained in sub-paragraph 7.4 and paragraph 24.

What is Intellectual Property?

Intellectual Property includes Registered Rights, such as Patents, Registered Trade Marks and Registered Designs, and Unregistered Rights, such as Unregistered Trade Marks, Unregistered Designs and Copyright.

Copyright in the United Kingdom is governed by the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, as amended. The Platform, Products and/or Content may be protected by more than one form of Intellectual Property Right.

By way of a summary, Copyright subsists in: original literary, dramatic, musical or artistic works; sound recordings, films or broadcasts; and the typographical arrangement of published editions. Literary works are considered to be any work, other than a dramatic or musical work, which is written, spoken or sung and includes: a table or compilation other than a database; a computer program; preparatory design material for a computer program; and a database. Artistic works are considered to be: a graphic work, photograph, sculpture or collage, irrespective of artistic quality; a work of architecture being a building or a model for a building; or a work of artistic craftsmanship.

The duration of Copyright in literary, dramatic, musical or artistic works expires at the end of the period of 70 years from the end of the calendar year in which the author dies. For other types of Copyright works, the duration depends upon the type of work.

The following are acts restricted by Copyright in a work: copy the work; issue copies of the work to the public; rent or lend the work to the public; perform, show or play the work in public; communicate the work to the public; and make an adaptation of the work or do any of the above in relation to an adaptation.

7.4 Use of the Platform includes the ability to purchase items in the USEUM Shop, for example Products created by Art Copyright Owners whose Content We display or Products created by Us from Content in which Copyright has expired.

Operation of the USEUM Shop is generally covered by the following Terms.


When you, as a Customer, order Products, you will be charged the then current fees, which We may change from time to time (such as when We have holiday sales or offer discounts on base product prices). We may choose to temporarily change the fees for Our Products for promotional events and such changes are effective when We post the temporary promotional event or new Products on Our Platform. The sale will be submitted for processing and you will be charged as soon as you click on the “Place Order" button. You will then receive a confirmatory e-mail from us.

By placing an order through the Platform, you are confirming that you are legally entitled to use the means of payment tendered and, in the case of card payments, that you are either the cardholder or have the cardholder's express permission to utilise the card to affect payment.

We may refuse to process a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at Our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of refusing or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.

Unless otherwise stated, all fees and payments are quoted in United States Dollars. The Customer is responsible for paying all fees, payments and applicable taxes associated with Our Platform and Products. After receiving your order you will receive a confirmatory e-mail from us. Payment of the total price plus delivery must be made in full before dispatch of your Products.

The Customer is responsible for all sales taxes (as applicable).

Shipping & Returns

Once you have clicked on the “Place Order" button, it is not possible to edit or cancel your order. If you want to change some parameters, Customer addresses, etc., then please contact Us as soon as possible. We are not bound to make such modifications to your order, but We will do our best on a case-by-case basis. Replacement of Products and credits for Products claimed as damaged or not received are subject to USEUM’s investigation and discretion.

We will review replacement/return requests if there are missing or broken Products, or a print error which is Our fault. However, ultimately, USEUM cannot be held responsible for damage caused by delivery services. USEUM is not responsible for incorrectly provided Customer names, addresses, etc. and, therefore, an extra charge may be applied.

Description of Our Products

Whilst many component parts of Our Products are standard, all Products available for purchase are described on their specific design page on Our Platform. We always try to represent each design as accurately as possible through photography and copy points provided by designers, artists or photographers.

We have a policy of continuous product development so We can provide you with what We consider to be the best design combined with the best performance and, thus, reserve the right to amend the specifications of Products, their price, packaging and any service associated at any time, without prior notice. Before ordering, We thus invite you to have a close look at the product description and design.

We use Our best efforts to provide you with the best images and descriptions but, unfortunately, cannot guarantee that colours and details are exactly as shown in the Platform and are 100% accurate representations of the Products. Further, indication of sizes might in some cases be approximate.

Purchase of Products

Your order represents an offer to Us to purchase Products which is accepted by Us once We have sent you an e-mail order confirmation. Any Products on the same order which We have not been confirmed in an e-mail order confirmation do not form part of that contract.

We shall under no circumstances be held liable for any special losses due to specific circumstances of the Customer, indirect or consequential losses or wasted expenditure.

Orders are placed and received exclusively via the Platform. Before ordering from Us, it is the Customer's responsibility to check and determine full ability to receive the Products. Correct Customer’s address and post code/zip code, Customer’s up-to-date telephone number and e-mail address are absolutely necessary to ensure successful delivery of Products.

All information asked on the checkout page must be filled in precisely and accurately. We will not be responsible for missed delivery because of a wrong delivery address or an inappropriate phone number. Should you like to ask for a change in the delivery address, notify a change in a phone number or any other special requirements, then please contact us.


8 Amendments to the Terms

8.1 We may update or amend these Terms from time to time to comply with law or to meet Our changing business requirements by revising these pages. We shall endeavour, but do not undertake, to give you reasonable notice of the revision. By continuing to use Our Platform, you agree to be bound by the terms of these updates and amendments.

8.2 These Terms were last updated on the date set out at the start of these Terms.

10 Other General Terms

10.1 If any of these Terms are found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable by any Court or other Authority of competent jurisdiction, the rest of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect.

10.2 These Terms set out the entire agreement between you and Us and supersede any and all prior terms, conditions, warranties and/or representations to the fullest extent permitted by law. Any delay or failure by Us to exercise any right We may have under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver by Us of that right.

10.3 These Terms are governed by English law. In the event of any matter or dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms, you and We shall endeavour to agree upon a binding Alternative Dispute Resolution. In the event of inability to agree, you and We shall submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.

16 Adding Content

16.1 Following registration as an Art Copyright Owner you will be entitled to add your Content (in particular but not exclusively, your artwork) for the purposes of making such Content (“Artist Uploaded Content”) available to those using the Platform.

16.2 The provisions of this Part III shall apply to Content added by the Art Copyright Owner until that Content ceases to be available for viewing howsoever removed.

16.3 You undertake to be responsible for all Artist Uploaded Content which you add. You undertake to have the legal right to add all Artist Uploaded Content. You acknowledge that any Artist Uploaded Content added by you must not be subject to any third party Copyright unless the Copyright holder has given consent to such use and consent to your putting into effect the provisions of sub-paragraph 16.4 below. In the event that any Artist Uploaded Content added by you features one or more individuals, then you may need consent from such individual(s) to the adding. You acknowledge that it is the Art Copyright Owner’s responsibility to ensure that all required consents have been obtained in respect of the added Content; e.g. if the Content is a photograph of a work of art and is being imported from another website, you undertake to ensure that the owner of any rights in the photograph consents to the use of the photograph, as there will be separate Copyright in the photograph to that in the work of art.

16.4 We do not claim ownership of any Artist Uploaded Content (which shall be deemed for the purpose of this present sub-paragraph to include Content treated as Artist Uploaded Content under sub-paragraph 13.1). All right, title and interest in the Artist Uploaded Content remain at all times with you subject to the rights granted to Us in accordance with these Terms. On adding any Artist Uploaded Content you grant Us a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive licence for so long as the Artist Uploaded Content appears in the Products to:

  • display, copy, reproduce, exhibit, broadcast, transmit and distribute the Artist Uploaded Content;

  • allow your Content to be displayed by users of Our USEUM Lens application;

  • allow Art Lovers to transmit a thumbnail image of the Artist Uploaded Content via e-mail as an e-Postcard;

  • allow Us to modify the Artist Uploaded Content to permit the uses mentioned above; and

  • use the Artist Uploaded Content for the purposes of promoting, advertising and marketing the Products.

In connection with the adding of any Artist Uploaded Content you agree to waive and not to assert any moral right or other right in the Artist Uploaded Content so added.


17 You represent, warrant and undertake to Us that:

  • (a) you own all rights, title and interest (including for the avoidance of doubt all Intellectual Property Rights) in Content added to Our Platform by you and forming part of the Artist Uploaded Content and/or that you have obtained all third party rights, consents and permissions necessary in order for you to grant Us the rights granted to it by these Terms;

  • (b) you have all rights and powers necessary to enter into and perform the obligations under these Terms;

  • (c) Artist Uploaded Content does not infringe any third party Intellectual Property Rights, or the moral or personality rights of any third party.


18 You undertake to indemnify Us and hold Us harmless on demand from and against all liabilities, losses, damages, claims and costs and expenses arising out of or in connection with any display, upload, import or other use of Artist Uploaded Content or any breach of any of the representations warranties and undertakings given in these Terms or any breach by you of these Terms.


19 We reserve the right to reject the submission of, or (if already posted) to take down, any Artist Uploaded Content which is in Our sole discretion obscene, offensive, blasphemous, pornographic, unlawful, threatening, vulgar, menacing, abusive, defamatory, an invasion of privacy or otherwise in Our absolute discretion considered to be objectionable, unsuitable or inappropriate for display.


20 We reserve the right to restrict access to any item of Artist Uploaded Content if We believe that the subject matter of the Artist Uploaded Content should only be accessed after appropriate warning and/or by a restricted class of user.


21 We reserve the right to take down any item of Artist Uploaded Content at Our sole discretion including, without limitation, if any claim is made under paragraph 2.7 or if We believe that any work falls within paragraph 19.


22 When you register as an Art Copyright Owner you will be given the opportunity to specify whether or not you wish to allow crowdsourcing of your Content by Art Lovers. Provision is made for subsequent enabling or disabling of crowdsourcing. If you allow crowdsourcing, this will allow Art Lovers and Our staff to add other Content by you to the Content from sources which you specify. If you choose to allow crowdsourcing by Art Lovers and Our staff you will be asked to set out the Content which may be so sourced and/or the sites from which your Content may be sourced. You should only specify Content and websites or URL’s from which your Content may be sourced which comply in all respects with these Terms. In particular paragraphs 16.3, 16.4, 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21 will also apply to each and every Content which you permit to be sourced from any site or URL specified by you as if they were Artist Uploaded Content for the purposes of those paragraphs. You must not specify any website or URL from which your Content may be crowd sourced which does not permit other websites to link to that site or URL without consent (unless you have obtained consent for such images to be made available to Us) or which otherwise restricts or prohibits the use of its images on other websites. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing you must ensure that only websites are listed that enable you to comply with these Terms.


23 If you do not wish your Content to be added from alternative websites or if you do not have full rights to permit Content to be sourced from the websites specified in accordance with these Terms, then you should decline the opportunity to allow crowd sourcing when registering as an Art Copyright Owner.


24 As an Art Copyright Owner you can use the USEUM Shop to design Products based on your Artist Uploaded Content which will be offered for sale through the USEUM Shop. You may access Our current fee structure and payment terms through your Art Copyright Owner Account page available through Our Platform. If you design Products using the USEUM Shop, you grant Us the right to produce and merchandise those Products incorporating your Artist Uploaded Content directly by Us or by a Merchandise Third Party on your behalf. You will earn a commission payment for each and every Product sold though the USEUM Shop that has been created by you. For every sale you will notified by e-mail and you will receive the commission payment after a period of approximately a month after the sale was made. We do not guarantee but We will do Our best to make all payments on time and to rectify any other problems which may occur for unexpected technological reasons. Payment will be made to you in United States Dollars via a PayPal account and, therefore, it will be necessary for any Art Copyright Owner creating Products for sale on the USEUM Shop to have or create a PayPal account before being paid for any sales of Products. Any charges incurred in connection with the use of PayPal or in connection with any currency exchange will be payable by the Art Copyright Owner. Once you start selling Products through the USEUM Shop, you will have access to data relating to a complete list of all of the Products you have sold, any monies outstanding to be credited to your account, and any monies you may have already received from Us. You, and not We, will be responsible for payment of any income-related tax payable upon the monies which you receive in respect of the Products. Whilst the above defines the relationship of Us and an Art Copyright Owner with respect to the USEUM Shop, paragraph 7.4 above defines operation of the USEUM Shop from a Customer perspective.
