InSitu Works (“ISW”) provides a service for selling and purchasing original works of art and commercially exploiting digital images of works of art (the “Services”) through our website, accessible at www.insituworks.com (the “Site”). Please read carefully the following terms and conditions (“Terms”) and all exhibits, which are incorporated by reference into these Terms. These Terms govern your access to and use of the Site and Services, and constitute a binding legal agreement between you and ISW.
Certain areas of the Site and your access to certain Services may have different terms and conditions posted or may require you to agree with and accept additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between these Terms and the terms and conditions posted for a specific area of the Site or for specific Services, then the latter terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to your use of or access to that area of the Site or Services.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SITE OR SERVICES OR BY SELLING OR PURCHASING A WORK ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES OR BY POSTING ANY CONTENT ON THE SITE, YOU ARE INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE REGISTERED WITH THE SITE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, THEN YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO ACCESS OR USE THE SITE OR SERVICES. If you accept or agree to these Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, then you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to that company or other legal entity.
ISW reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify, discontinue, or terminate the Site or Services or to modify these Terms at any time and without prior notice. If we modify these Terms, then we will post the modification on the Site or provide you with notice of the modification. We will also update the “Last Updated Date.” By continuing to access or use the Site or Services after we have posted a modification on the Site or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, then your only recourse is to cease using the Site and Services.
The Site and Services are intended solely for persons who are 18 or older. Any access to or use of the Site or Services by anyone under 18 is expressly prohibited. By accessing or using the Site or Services you represent and warrant that you are 18 or older.
In order to list a work on the Site or to make a purchase through the Site, you must first create an account (“Account”) by completing our registration process. During the registration process you will be required to provide certain information and you will establish a username and a password. Upon completion of our registration process you will become a “Member.” You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current, and complete. ISW reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current, or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree not to disclose your password to any third party and to take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify ISW of any unauthorized use of your Account.
All shipping costs and applicable taxes and customs duties will be added to your order upon checkout. These fees are dependent on your shipping address. Within the United States, sales tax will be added to orders shipping to New York only, per American online sales tax rules. For a shipping address outside of the United States, taxes will be charged in adherence to the country’s current rates. To estimate duties and taxes on your order, add the item to your shopping cart and enter your shipping destination on your cart page.
You understand and agree that ISW uses commercially reasonable efforts to display the colors of Original Works of Art, Digital Works, and Printed Works accurately via the Site and Services. However, because individual computer monitors may display colors differently, ISW is not responsible for the color accuracy of any Original Works of Art, Digital Works, or Printed Works displayed on the Site and Services, and disclaims all liability in this regard.
We welcome and encourage you to provide feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the Site and Services (“Feedback”). You may submit Feedback by emailing us at email@example.com. You acknowledge and agree that all Feedback will be the sole and exclusive property of ISW and you hereby irrevocably assign to ISW and agree to irrevocably assign to ISW all of your right, title, and interest in and to all Feedback, including without limitation all worldwide patent rights, copyright rights, trade secret rights, and other proprietary or intellectual property rights therein.
ISW may also make available through the Site and Services text, graphics, audio, video, and images of works of art (collectively, “ISW Content”), some of which is owned by ISW (“ISW-Owned Content”), and some of which is made available under license by a third party (“ISW-Licensed Content”).

Nothing in these Terms is intended to modify, restrict, or limit the scope of your rights as to such ISW-Licensed Content.

Sweepstakes and Contests
ISW may operate sweepstakes, contests, and similar promotions (collectively, “Promotions”) through the Site and Services.

Limitation of Liability
You acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the Site, Services, ISW Content, and Member Content remains with you. Neither ISW nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the Site, Services, ISW Content, or Member Content will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data, loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage, or system failure or the cost of substitute products or services, or for any damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with these Terms or from the use of or inability to use the Site, Services, ISW Content, or Member Content, or from any communications, interactions, or meetings with other Members or users of the Site or Services or other persons with whom you communicate or interact as a result of your use of the Site or Services, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability, or any other legal theory, and whether or not ISW has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose.
In no event will ISW’s aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with these Terms or from the use of or inability to use the Site, Services, ISW Content, or Member Content exceed: (i) if you are a Member who has sold Original Works of Art or has licensed Digital Works and has received any Seller Revenue Share from ISW from the sale of Printed Works, the total payments made or credited to you by ISW for the sale of your Original Works of Art and/or from the sale of Printed Works based on your licensed Digital Works during the three (3) month period preceding the date a claim for liability arises under these Terms; and (ii) if you are a Member who has purchased Original Works of Art or Printed Works, the total payments that you made to ISW for the Original Works of Art and/or Printed Works that are the subject of a claim. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between ISW and you. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

All trademarks, service marks, logos, trade names, and any other proprietary designations of ISW used herein are trademarks or registered trademarks of ISW. Any other trademarks, service marks, logos, trade names, and any other proprietary designations are the trademarks or registered trademarks of their respective parties.
Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of laws provisions.

As used in this policy, the terms "using" and "processing" information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including, but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization or among our affiliates within the United States or internationally.
Information Collection and Use: Personally Identifiable Information
In the course of using the Site and Services, you may provide us with personally identifiable information, which refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you ("Personal Information"). Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, credit card or other billing information, email address, phone number and postal address. We use your Personal Information primarily to provide and improve the Site and Services and to respond to your inquiries.
We may also request that you provide certain information, such as your zip code and personal preferences, which is typically considered "Non-Identifying Information" because it cannot, by itself, be used to contact or identify you.
We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) primarily to provide and improve the Services, to complete your transactions and respond to your inquiries.
Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But, the same items of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-Identifying information (for example, your age). We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other ISW users to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Site and Services and to analyze and understand how our Site and Services are used.
We also use your Personal Information to contact you with ISW newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications.
When you visit the Site, whether as a Member or a non-registered user just browsing (any of these, a "ISW User"), our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site, pages of our Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Site, access times and dates, ads you click on during your use of the Site, your viewing preferences, bookmark habits and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site and for the Site's technical administration, to increase our Site's functionality and user-friendliness and to better tailor the Site to our visitors' needs. For example, some of this information is collected so that when you visit the Site again, it will recognize you and serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Site meet the criteria required to process their requests.
We also use "web beacons," "pixel tags," "clear GIFs" or similar means (individually or collectively "Web Beacons") on our Site. A Web Beacon is an electronic image, often a single pixel, embedded on web pages. Web Beacons are ordinarily not visible to users. Web Beacons allow us to count the number of users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services and to generate statistics about how our Site is used.
Making Purchases and Listing Works via the Site
If you purchase a work or other item or list a work for sale via the Site, we request certain Personal Information from you. You must provide contact information such as first and last name, address, city, zip, email and phone number and financial information such as credit card type, credit card number, expiration date and CVV2. We use this information for billing and remittance purposes, to list works for sale on the Site and to fulfill your orders, as applicable. If we have trouble processing an order or listing a work for sale, we will use this information to contact you. If you list a work for sale via the Site, we require you to provide a copy of a government issued photo identification. When you place an order or list a work for sale via the Site, ISW will also send you informational emails regarding such orders and sales.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
ISW Members: When you register for the Site and create an Account, your Personal Information (including, but not limited to, your name) will be publicly viewable via the Site. We recommend that you guard your sensitive information and we encourage you to think carefully about what information you post via the Site. If you choose to purchase Original Works of Art via the Site and Services, we will share your name and postal address with the Member who listed the work for sale on the Site to enable that Member to ship the purchased work directly to you.
Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information: We may share aggregated information that does not include Personal Information and we may otherwise disclose Non-Identifying Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.
Service Providers: We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Services, to provide our Services on our behalf, to perform Site-related services (e.g., without limitation, payment processing, billing and shipping services, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Site's features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Site and Services are used. These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement: ISW cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of ISW or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
Business Transfers: ISW may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy.
Changing or Deleting Your Information
To completely delete all Personal Information you provide to ISW, you must contact us at email@example.com. If you completely delete all such information, your account may be deactivated. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.
The security of your Personal Information is important to ISW. But remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) via the Site, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). In some cases, we also encrypt sensitive information where it is stored on our systems.
We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored "personal data" (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
Our Policy Toward Children
This Site is not directed to children under 18. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with Personal Information without their consent, he or she should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our files.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to ISW. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, username, login password or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the U.S. Federal Trade Commission's website.
Links to Other Sites
Our Site contains links to other websites. If you choose to visit an advertiser by "clicking on" a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party's website. The fact that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.
