ÆMERGENT is a digital platform for selling and promoting art, founded by Francesco Di Pardo in 2023.
E-mail: email@example.com VAT number: IT16970491003.
ÆMERGENT works on www.aemergent.com, a Site that allows artists to sell their works, promote their art and join a network of international emerging artists. The GTC apply to all sales made through the ÆMERGENT platform.
ÆMERGENT acts as a platform and conduit between Artists and Buyers, and is not the owner or reseller of the works it publishes on the www.aemergent.com platform. Maintenance of the Site is the sole responsibility of Francesco Di Pardo and any contributors.
ÆMERGENT runs on WINDOWS, MACINTOSH, LINUX operating systems. Operation on other operating environments is not guaranteed. Its uninterrupted operation cannot be guaranteed. AEMERGENT relieves itself from any liability that may result from data deletion, power outages, and any other failure that does not result directly from AEMERGENT.
1.1 THE ORDER - To place an order, the Buyer may select one or more works and add them to their cart. Availability, price, and features are indicated on the Site, in the description tab of each work. When the order is completed, the Buyer can access his or her cart by clicking the CONCLUDE PURCHASE AND PAY button, or other similar wording.
1.2 VALIDATION OF THE ORDER BY THE BUYER - By consulting his shopping cart, the Buyer will be able to check the number and nature of the Works he has chosen and will be able to check the unit price as well as the total price. He will be able to remove one or more works from the cart.
If the order matches his requirements, the Buyer may close it. In doing so, the Buyer acknowledges and accepts these Terms and Conditions.
1.3 PAYMENT - Once the Buyer proceeds with the purchase on the platform, ÆMERGENT will contact the Artist within five (5) business days to arrange day and time available for collection by the courier. The moment the item is sent and received by the Buyer, the Artist will be duly paid, past the 14-day period (right of return).
Shipping costs within the Italian territory will be made free of charge for the Buyer and will be borne by the Artist for the maximum amount of €50.00. This cost will be deducted from the Artist's percentage. Should the shipping cost exceed €100.00 the excess cost will be borne by the Buyer.
For international shipments, shipping costs will be agreed upon between the Firm and the Buyer and will be borne by the Buyer.
At this point the Artist may pack the order and ship by courier on the previously agreed upon day and time. The Artist will print all documents necessary for proper shipping. If the Artist fails to meet the agreed upon time and/or is unreachable either by email or telephone, ÆMERGENT shall have the right to cancel the order and refund the Buyer. In the event that such an event happens more than once, ÆMERGENT may close the tab dedicated to the Artist indefinitely.
As a medium, ÆMERGENT does not manage stock: original works are stored and packaged directly by the Artists. The works on the platform, unless they have already been sold or withdrawn by the exclusive will of the Artist, are available for sale.
