Art 4 Conservation content remains the exclusive property of the artists and may not be used, copied, reproduced, distributed,

General information terms
The information on this website is intended solely for the personal non-commercial use of the user who accepts full responsibility for its use and interpretation. While we have taken every precaution to insure that the projects & blog content of this website is both current and accurate, errors can occur. The information contained on this website is general in nature. Art 4 Conservation assumes no responsibility or liability for any errors or omissions in the projects & blog content of this website. The information contained on this website is provided on an ‘as is’ basis with no guarantees of completeness, accuracy, usefulness or timeliness and without any warranties of any kind whatsoever, express or implied. Art 4 Conservation does not warrant that this site will be uninterrupted, error-free, omission-free or free of viruses or other harmful items. All views expressed in the blog section are thoughts and opinions that belong solely to the authors involved.
While we always strive to link art subjects to relevant conservation projects, it is not always possible to find a project that meets our selection criteria. We therefore sometimes allow ourselves some flexibility when it comes to selecting the geographical scope and the subject matter of the projects we support. This can for example result in certain artworks supporting a family of wildlife species instead of the specific species portrayed on the painting. It can also happen that the proceeds of the artwork that portrays a specific animal from one continent go to a project on another continent if that project is regarded as more relevant.
Printing & Pricing policy
Giclée fine art prints sold by Art 4 conservation will be as close to the original artwork as possible but will not be 100% identical to it or to what is shown on the website due to differences in monitors, mobile screens, dimensions, medium and perceptual differences during paper profiling, colour matching and soft proofing. The pricing of the in-house fine art prints includes paper & printing costs and costs to operate the non-profit whilst the remaining proceeds go to the dedicated wildlife charity organisations (original artwork prices includes similar costs). This translates to 60% of the proceeds going to wildlife charity for the A3+ prints, whilst for the A2 limited prints and the original artworks the percentage will be higher (75%). Art 4 Conservation is continuously trying to increase these percentages as we gradually grow our organisation. If you want a more detailed breakdown of our costs, feel free to contact us.
In-house print size formats mentioned on the website are indicative and will sometimes derive from this in function of the dimensions of the original artwork. Prints from guest artists on the platform may have printing policies that deviate from our in-house print work policies. Should they want to, clients can request specific guest artist policies via our contact section.
Unavoidable credit transaction costs take a significant portion of our smaller print proceeds. If possible, consider a traditional bank transfer.
Packaging & Shipping policy
Art 4 Conservation will ensure packaging of the original artwork or fine art print is safe and secure, and will provide shipping & tracking details to the customer once the artwork has been posted. The Belgian Post Group service (B-Post) is used for all in-house shipments as we have good experiences with them.
Art 4 Conservation takes full responsibility for any damage done to the artwork or the packaging during shipment, as well as damage inflicted at the fault of the artist or during the artist’s possession (the artist will contact the customer when this occurs), but this is up until the moment you accept the package from the deliverer. When you physically accept the package in the state it is being delivered, Art 4 Conservation will not be liable for any damage. We recommend you check your package for damage the moment it arrives with the delivery service. If it is damaged, don't accept it and contact us via email@example.com for further support. If the package arrives and you had no contact with the delivery service (e.g. because the deliverer left before physical acceptance) and the package is damaged, please send us an email with your order number, name and address immediately and add photos of the damaged print and packaging. The same advice applies if you receive the wrong item(s). We will reprint and send you a new print. For original artwork damages we work on a case by case basis and try to come to an appropriate solution.

Packaging methods & policies of guest artists on the platform can deviate from our in-house packaging methods & policies and can be provided upon request via our contact section. Although Art 4 Conservation is caring deeply about the environment and is currently working on finding sustainable packaging solutions to ship artworks, we are currently using plastics (bubble wrap, wrapping tissue, plastic sheet, plastic tape) and cardboard for the wrapping to maximise the safety of the artwork during shipping.
Art 4 Conservation has the right to set the time of shipping the artworks based on a workable time schedule. In-house fine art prints may take up to two weeks before shipping is possible since we allow 1 week to process orders and 1 week to print orders. However, based on the number of orders there are in this time period, the shipping time might be significantly reduced. By contrast, original artworks can be shipped 1-2 business days after receiving orders. Prints from guest artists on the platform may have shipping policies that deviate from our in-house print work policies. Should they want to, clients can request specific guest artist policies via our contact section.
Art 4 Conservation accepts the return or exchange of original artworks. We understand that artworks can look different in person compared to the online representation of the product. Although we are trying to represent the artworks as best as we can, differences in overall colour and texture of the artwork may appear. Returns and exchanges are done on a case by case basis. We do not accept fine art print returns since these products are seen as consumables that cannot be reused. For reprinting in cases of damage we refer you to our shipping policy.
Should you want to initiate a return, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. If your return is accepted, Art 4 Conservation will send you detailed instructions on how and where to send your package. Please note that we only accept requested returns. Art 4 Conservation is not processing refunds since the proceeds go directly to the charity projects.
Although the platform is donating proceeds to wildlife charity projects, Art 4 Conservation itself is currently not registered to make artwork purchases tax deductible. Donations are only tax deductible through donating directly to the projects and if those projects are officially registered as accepting gifts for charity.
All prices and shipping rates on this platform exclude taxes and duties. Additional taxes and duties may be charged in countries such as Switzerland and some non-European countries.
