Terms of Purchase
The Site enables Getty Images to provide its customers with framed and unframed images printed on high-quality paper, as well as images printed on other materials, such as canvas, acrylic and metal. The images of the artwork on the Site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display colors accurately, we cannot guarantee that your device’s display of the colors accurately reflects the color of the artwork that will arrive at your door as each piece is made to order once we receive your order.
If you are purchasing artwork in the United States, the artwork is provided to you by Getty Images (US), Inc. (located at 605 5th Ave South, Suite 400, Seattle, Washington, 98104), and if you purchase artwork anywhere outside of the United States, the artwork is provided to you by Getty Images International (located at 1st Floor, The Herbert Building, The Park, Carrickmines, Dublin 18, Ireland).
The price of each product is included on the asset detail page for each piece of artwork. Any applicable shipping and taxes for your artwork will be calculated and included during the check-out process. The total price (inclusive of any applicable shipping and taxes) will be made available to you before you finalize your order. All prices are in U.S. dollars.
We offer exclusive pricing, expert curation and insider resources to our trade program members – from interior designers to industry professionals. If you would like to join our trade program, you can learn more here.
Trade program members – as well as any other customers of the Site -- may not purchase artwork as a professional reseller or to set up a retail store or website to sell any Photos.com products. To be clear, this does not prohibit you from purchasing artwork on behalf of your clients.
Only one coupon per order. Each coupon may be used only once.
Forms of payment accepted
We accept PayPal and all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover).
If we cannot accept your order for any reason, we will inform you as soon as possible and your sole recourse will be that we will refund any amounts paid by you. Because each piece is made to order, once your order is placed, it cannot be cancelled.
Your artwork will be shipped to you in accordance with the Getty Images shipping policy, which can be found at: https://www.photos.com/shipping-and-returns. If you are not delighted and/or inspired with your artwork for any reason, you may return it within 14 days for a refund. The full return policy applicable to your order can also be found at: https://www.photos.com/shipping-and-returns. We are not liable for any damages that you may incur because the product does not arrive (on time or at all). In such cases, your sole recourse will be that we will refund any amounts paid by you.
Getty Images and/or its third-party partners bear the risk of loss for the order of your artwork until you receive it. You own the artwork once we received your payment in full and it has been delivered to you.
For any questions or concerns, including any questions about an order you have received, you can contact our customer support team. You can reach customer service Monday – Friday between 8am and 5pm CST at 1-844-7575, via live chat or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do not provide instructions regarding how to assemble, display or hang your artwork. Please seek professional assistance to ensure that your artwork is hung or displayed safely.
Some types of materials used as frame or pane of your artwork are sensitive to certain chemical compounds and solvents that can be found in generic home cleaning products, such as ammonia-based products. In case of chemical aggression, the material may fade and become brittle and foggy.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Getty Images, its subsidiaries, affiliates, licensors, employees, agents, third party information providers and independent contractors against any claims, damages, costs, liabilities and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of or related to any User Content that you post, store or otherwise transmit on or through the Site, your conduct, your use or inability to use the Site, your breach or alleged breach of the Site Terms or of any representation or warranty contained herein, your unauthorized use of the Getty Images Content, or your violation of any rights of another.

Any dispute that cannot be resolved with our Customer Service Team relating in any way to your use of the Site, the Getty Images Content or any artwork you purchase shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Seattle, Washington, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Getty Images' intellectual property rights, Getty Images may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of Washington, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Arbitration under this provision shall be conducted by a single arbitrator under the rules then prevailing of the American Arbitration Provision. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to the Site Terms, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.
