Purchases Made on the Site

Pure Sculpture does its best to ensure that all artwork listed on the Site for sale is currently available and correctly priced. On occasion, system glitches may occur which could result in items shown as available for sale actually being unavailable or showing the incorrect pricing. If the work you desire to purchase turns out to be unavailable, Pure Sculpture will attempt to contact you as soon as possible via any contact information you have entered into your account and try to determine if there is a comparable work that will be an acceptable substitute. In the event that an item is listed with a price that is below the actual price, Pure Sculpture reserves the right to void the sale and will attempt to contact you immediately via any contact information you have entered into your account to offer you the same item at the correct price. In the event that an item is listed with a price that is above the actual price and you are in fact charged the incorrect, higher amount, upon determining that this is the case, Pure Sculpture will refund the difference between the incorrect, higher price and the true price of the artwork. As Pure Sculpture does not retain credit card data, we will contact you via the contact information in your account, to obtain your credit card information for a refund. This refund shall be processed as soon as is reasonably possible, although times for processing may vary depending on the payment method used upon purchase. In no instance will Pure Sculpture be held liable for any claims or damages arising out the unavailability of an item or inaccurate information accidentally or inadvertently listed on the Site. Further, Pure Sculpture will not be held liable for any claims or damages arising out of system glitches that occur as a result of service interruptions or other technical matters that are out of Pure Sculpture’s control.

Credit Cards

We charge your credit card upon receipt of your order. If the expected shipment date is later than 90 days from the order date, we will contact you to issue an immediate credit to your card (we do not keep credit cards on file so we are unable to generate the credit without contacting you).  For orders expected to ship within 90 days from receipt of your order, your funds will be considered a deposit until your sculpture is shipped. You may contact us anytime prior to shipping to request a full return of your deposit.  After shipping refunds are subject to our return policy.
