I confirm acceptance of the below Terms and Conditions and in particular, I consent to the use of personal data in condition 6 below.


  1. Introduction

These terms and conditions (‘Terms and Conditions’) apply to the sale to you by the Whitechapel Ventures Limited (‘the Whitechapel’) of any limited edition print or any other piece of artwork (the “Artwork”) by any artist (the ‘Artist’) either at the Whitechapel’s premises or through its website.


  1. Orders and Prices

2.1 In respect of an order made through the Whitechapel’s website, the maximum order quantity for any one item is five. Select the number of items you wish to buy, then click on checkout and enter your personal details onto the form.

Your order will then be sent to the Whitechapel by e-mail. You can also order by telephone on +44 (0) 207 522 7888 or by fax on +44 (0) 207 377 1685.

2.2 Artwork prices are subject to change. Prices may rise as an edition of an Artwork begins to sell out.


  1. Delivery

3.1 Delivery of the Artwork shall be made by you collecting the Artwork from the premises of the Whitechapel at the time of purchase or at any other date and time so agreed.

3.2 If you purchase the Artwork through the Internet or Mail Order, delivery will be made by the Whitechapel delivering the goods to the address specified in your order. Delivery will be made through Crossflight Global Express Courier, Mail and Logistics (or alternative courier services if applicable) for UK orders and International courier services for non-UK orders. All delivery charges will be payable by you. Please allow up to 21 days for delivery.

3.3 Delivery to you will be deemed to have occurred once the packaged, stamped and addressed Artwork is placed with the Courier service, or such other carrier as we may use.

3.4 Where you request for delivery other than in accordance with condition 3.1, the Whitechapel shall be under no obligation under section 32 (2) of the Sale of Goods Act 1979.


  1. Title and Risk

Title and risk in the Artwork shall pass to you when the Whitechapel has received the payment price for the Artwork in full, in cash or in cleared funds, whether or not delivery has been made. Upon such payment, you will be responsible for the Artwork, the risk of damage to or loss of the Artwork will pass to you and you shall be responsible for insuring the same.


  1. Ownership of Copyright

5.1 The Artist has worked with the Whitechapel and produced the Artwork as a special commission in conjunction with an exhibition of Artist’s work shown by the Whitechapel. The Artwork was produced with the intention that it will be sold exclusively through the Whitechapel. The Artist and the Whitechapel have agreed that the Artwork may not be resold and accordingly, you agree that you will not do so.

5.2 In addition, but without prejudice to your undertakings set out at condition 5.1 above, you may not sell or offer to sell the Artwork on any internet-based site of any description.

5.3 In accordance with the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, copyright in the Artwork shall remain the property of the Artist at all times.

5.4 You may not produce any image of the Artwork and may not, at any time, publish or submit for publication or reproduction of any image of the Artwork to any third party, including any internet website, for any purpose.

5.5 If you breach any of your obligations set out under condition 5.3 you agree that the payment of damages alone may not be a sufficient remedy to compensate the Whitechapel or the Artist for any such breach. We and/or the Artist may carry out all or any of the following actions:

5.6 Apply to the Court seeking an Order to prevent you from continuing to breach your obligations under these Terms and Conditions;

5.7 Apply to the Court seeking an Order that the Artwork or any item or items produced in breach of these Terms and Conditions shall be delivered up to us carriage paid;

5.8 Apply to the Court seeking an Order to require that any items produced in breach of these Terms and Conditions shall be destroyed; or

5.9 Apply to the Court seeking an Order to require that any offer for sale or image of the Artwork placed by you (whether directly or indirectly) on any internet website is removed.

5.10 The list set out above is not exhaustive and you will indemnify us in respect of the cost of any steps taken pursuant to condition 5.5 as a result of your breach of these Terms and Conditions.

  1. Rights of Third Parties

No third party shall have any rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 in connection with these Terms and Conditions other than in respect of condition 5 above, which confers a benefit on the Artist and is intended to be enforceable by the Artist.

Please note that you cannot cancel this contract. Accordingly, once purchased you may not return the Artwork and the Whitechapel does not offer refunds. You may reserve an artwork for up to three months by paying a non-refundable deposit covering at least 25% of the total price.


  1. Waiver

No failure or delay by the Whitechapel in exercising any right, power or privilege shall impair the same or operate as a waiver of the same, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege preclude any further exercise of the same or the exercise of any other right power or privilege. The rights and remedies provided in these Terms and Conditions are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights and remedies provided by law.
