As an indicative explanation, a person who has consigned an item to us will fall within the scope of the above terms or expressions (and hence these Terms of Services) when accessing or using the Marketplace or Services for any purpose not related to the sale of that consigned item.


Furthermore, as used in these Terms of Service, the expressions or terms “Artemisia Marketplace” or “Marketplace” refer to and include the following:

  • our e-commerce website (<artemisialtd.com>),
  • the digital gallery and online store that you access and connect to through our website; and
  • all of their respective features and functionalities.


By accessing or using (i) the Artemisia Marketplace (even if only browsing), or the (ii) Services in any manner or (iii) the content which we may make available through the Services, you are “Accepting” and “Agreeing” to be legally bound with immediate effect by the Terms. As mentioned, these Terms will then constitute a legally binding contract between you and us.

Thus, should you not wish to be bound by the Terms, you must leave the Artemisia Marketplace immediately and not make any use of the Services or its content.

  • To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we shall not be liable to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, for any loss of profit or any indirect or consequential loss, including any loss of business, loss of goodwill or loss reputation, even where foreseeable, as arising under or in connection with any of the following:

  • Entire Agreement. The Terms, including all of the documents incorporated by reference herein (including our terms for non-Consigned Art and terms for Consigned Art), make up our legal relationship with you, and supersede any other agreement between you and Artemisia regarding the Artemisia Marketplace, the Site or the Services, and supersede all prior agreements (even oral), notices, statements, promises or assurances.
  • There may be some overlap between the provisions of these Terms of Service and the provisions of our other terms, as incorporated by reference herein (such as our terms for non-Consigned Art and our terms for Consigned Art). In the event of any material conflict or inconsistency, the provisions most specific to the matter or issue, as amended from time to time, shall prevail and be given priority. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms and the documents which it incorporates by reference are to be taken as mutually explanatory of one another and, in the case of ambiguities or discrepancies within or between such parts or provisions, the same shall be explained and interpreted, if possible, in a manner which gives effect to each part or provision or minimises conflicts amongst such parts or provisions.

25. Changes to the Terms

We may update or revise these Terms from time to time, at our own discretion. If we believe that the changes are material, we will definitely let you know by doing one (or more) of the following:


  • by posting these changes on the Artemisia Marketplace or the Site; or
  • by sending you an email or message about the changes made.


In that way, you can decide whether you want to continue using the Artemisia Marketplace as well as the Services. Where you do not contact us and object to the changes made within one (1) week of either (i) us posting them on the Marketplace or Site or (ii) your receipt of our email or message informing you about the changes made, whichever is the earlier of the two, this will amount to your acceptance and consent to be bound by the updated or revised Terms in full.


You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any changes made to these Terms!
