TRANSPORT AND DELIVERY
In addition to the cost of the work, the customer pays for any transport of the work from the gallery. Transport prices in Norway are set after current transport rates in the Norwegian Post Office.
QB Gallery only deliver works on set rates in Norway. The time of delivery varies on different works. Information about pick up will be sent to you directly from your local post office. If the work is not picked up within 14 days, it will be returned to the gallery. On uncollected works there will be an additional 300,- NOK fee, regardless if one wants the work to be sent again.
QB Gallery keeps works that are ordered with “pick up in the gallery” as the delivery option for 3 months from the date of purchase. After this the order will be opened again and available through the gallery and web shop. It’s the client’s responsibility to pick up purchased works within the time limit.
RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL AND COMPLAINTS
By Norwegian law you have the right to withdraw your purchase within 14 days. This required that the work is returned in the same condition as when it was purchased. Please use the same packing as when the work was sent to you, as this will minimize the risk of damage due to deficient packaging. The buyer must pay for the return transport of the work.
When the work is made specifically for the buyer you still have a 14 day right of withdrawal. However, if there are specific production costs within the making of the work this will be deducted from the refund. For example, in a case where a work has been framed on the request of the buyer, you will only get refunded on the price of the artwork and not the frame.
Withdrawal when the work is faulty: you have the right to withdraw within the span of two years.
If you have additional questions regarding a withdrawal of an artwork, please get in touch with us.
INFORMATION ON ARTWORKS
QB Gallery strive to always give the accurate information on all artworks on our webpage. However, there could be mistakes or misspellings on prices or other information on the page. We strive to update all works and have the accurate information given by the artist.
5% ART TAX AND COPYRIGHT
Due to the law on copyright, all works of art above 2000 NOK are sold with an additional 5% art tax added to the price. The art tax benefits artists and rightsholders through both collective and individual allocation schemes. The collective schemes are managed by The Artists’ Relief Fund (BKH) and consist of grants, awards, and other allocation schemes.
