The following general sales conditions apply to any purchase of products or services made on the website of Dr. Roy Schneemann's Contemporary Modern Art Gallery (hereafter the Site). Specific conditions for certain products or services are defined below. Offers of online products and services, as well as prices, are valid only as long as they are visible on the Site and subject to available stock. Drawings, images, or diagrams on the Site are for illustration purposes only and are not part of the contractual terms.
My artworks (and related products) offered on my site
Before placing an order, the customer can view on the website www.ArtSpeeder.com the characteristics of the product(s) from the Contemporary Modern Art Gallery they wish to purchase online. To make navigation more intuitive and user-friendly, our site has directories with various product categories, namely:
• My limited edition artworks
• My limited edition sculptures
• Custom artworks
I offer a catalog of my Contemporary Modern Art, regularly updated, featuring over five hundred signed, dated, and numbered pieces. Reproductions are custom-made in limited editions with an authenticity certificate, and I can even create unique orders upon request. Drawing from my years of experience in photo studios and printing my artworks, I possess a unique photography technique for my paintings, allowing me to maintain unparalleled detail and resolution in my art.
It's essential to note that product photos in these directories are the most accurate representation of reality. Due to its nature, a virtual image may sometimes slightly differ. Despite all the care taken in creating my site, there may be slight differences between the viewed and delivered product due to technical constraints (lighting, camera angles, monitor calibration, etc.), or the inherent qualities of the materials used; the shade of an artwork or its finishing (Anti-UV) can exhibit subtle variations. Minor variations, within accepted tolerances, might also occur.
Other information provided in catalogs and explanatory notes is given for guidance only and does not constitute contractual documents. I, Dr. Roy Schneemann, disclaim any liability for potential errors or omissions related to said drawings, images, or diagrams or provided in said catalogs or notes.
Prices listed on the Site are in Euro and/or US Dollar (USD). They are inclusive of all taxes (VAT) but do not include processing and shipping fees, which are billed separately. All orders are payable exclusively in Euro and/or US Dollar (USD). Dr. Roy Schneemann reserves the right to change his prices at any time, but the prices charged to the customer for delivered products are those in effect on the order date and are mentioned on the order confirmation. Furthermore, promotional discounts offered during specific sales campaigns are, unless otherwise noted, cumulative with other volume-based discounts or potential discounts related to payment via gift checks or purchase vouchers. These specific promotional discounts are automatically calculated online and deducted from the order total.
Dr. Roy Schneemann on ArtSpeeder.com provides a comprehensive legal warranty covering defects in creations and contemporary modern art objects purchased from Dr. Roy Schneemann's Online Shops or the company MacSpeeder. The warranty only covers damage which, in Dr. Roy Schneemann's opinion, did not result from an accident, misuse, normal wear and tear, modification, repair attempts, negligence, or failure to follow maintenance advice for artworks or frames by Dr. Roy Schneemann.
Any product under warranty deemed defective may, at Dr. Roy Schneemann's discretion:
• be replaced with an identical artwork/frame, subject to availability,
• be substituted by an artwork/frame of comparable value, or
• be repaired, depending on the extent of damage and the feasibility of repair and availability.
This service is free and doesn't require any artwork rental agreement (see also: Renting My Contemporary Modern Art).
The defective artwork or frame must be sent via La Poste/DHL. The package should be sent registered and insured to its actual value. Dr. Roy Schneemann is not responsible for any damage, loss, or theft during transit.
Please retain your invoice and authenticity certificate for any claims. They serve as proof of purchase or authenticity of bought products and justification for the warranty claim.
These warranty terms apply unless specific warranty conditions are granted for particular creations. Dr. Roy Schneemann reserves the right to modify or adapt these warranty terms and their implications for future situations at his discretion and at any time.
You are entitled to a legal warranty against hidden defects, and I am obligated to deliver products fully compliant with your order, observing industry standards, and responsible for conformity defects present at the time of delivery. In the event of a claim, regardless of its nature, it is the customer's responsibility to return the invoice and clearly state their reservations. If the claim is justified, it will lead to an exchange or refund. However, my liability is not assumed if the non-performance or delay in performing any of my obligations results from force majeure or any event beyond my control that would make it impossible to process your order under anticipated conditions.
An order is only final after acceptance by Dr. Roy Schneemann. Submitting an order implies the customer's acceptance of these general sales conditions in their entirety, excluding any other terms or conditions. Dr. Roy Schneemann reserves the right to refuse any order from a customer with whom there's an existing payment dispute regarding a previous order.
The billed price is the one indicated on the order confirmation sent to the customer. Unless otherwise specified, all products and services are payable through PayPal or with credit cards like Eurocard/MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Diners, etc., accepted by PayPal. Payment can also be made by personal check, bank transfer, or Western Union. All payment transactions are conducted in a secure zone (link to the "security and confidentiality" article). Data recorded by Dr. Roy Schneemann constitutes evidence of all transactions between Dr. Roy Schneemann and his customers. Data recorded by the payment system is proof of financial transactions.
Payment must be made within a maximum of 7 days following the order.
Penalties for late payment automatically apply at a rate of 2.5 times the legal interest rate (9%), as per law N° 92-1442 dated 31/12/92, and this within seven days of the invoice date: notification by email or simple payment reminder letter. In case of legal proceedings, partial payments, or bankruptcy, a fee of 15% of the total amount demanded (minimum 90 EUR) will be billed for procedural costs.

It is important to note that product photos on my website remain the closest representation to reality. However, slight discrepancies might occur due to technical constraints (lighting and angles of photos, or the calibration of computer screens) or the inherent nature of the materials used. The colors of a piece of artwork, a frame, or its finishing patina may have different shades. Likewise, slight variations, within accepted tolerances, may appear.
Other photographs, texts, graphics, information, and features that reproduce and illustrate the presented products are not contractual. As a result, Dr. Roy Schneemann's liability cannot be engaged in case of errors or omissions in any of these photographs, texts, graphics, information, or product features, or in case of changes in product characteristics by suppliers.

Return shipping costs in case of withdrawal are the responsibility of the customer.
Exceptions to the Right of Withdrawal: All my artworks are limited editions and are produced exclusively according to customer specifications after the order has been placed. Therefore, it is not possible to return them or withdraw once the order has been made.
