You acknowledge that any use of or reliance on any User Generated Content and/or any such statements, ideas, advice or opinions is solely at your own risk.

5. Intermediary Services

a. As a User you may have access to products and services of third-party suppliers which are not part of AuthenticArt. Unless stated otherwise, these products and services will be provided to you under the third-party supplier’s terms and conditions. If applicable, we will share the terms of the third-party supplier and you must ensure you review them before agreeing to use the third-party’s product or service. AuthenticArt acts as an intermediary and is not responsible for any liability for your use of third-party supplier products or services.

b. Appraisal Service:

i. AuthenticArt’ Appraisal Service offers collectors a seamless, fast, and easily accessible service to request an appraisal for your art and collectibles directly from the AuthenticArt Website, more specifically from the user’s account on iamArt. This service allows collectors to easily track and update the value of their collection, based on appraisal performed by a professional and recognized appraiser. 

 

ii. AuthenticArt acts as the intermediary between the collector requesting an appraisal and a global pool of recognized appraisers. When matching the mandate with potential appraisers, AuthenticArt always favors appraisers that follow the strictest regulations, are certified by a recognized appraisal body following the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), and have the relevant expertise in the item the user seeks to appraise. Appraisals can be obtained for items of any medium (e.g. painting, sculpture, etc.). However, appraisals can only be performed for items of a limited edition or unique. 

 

iii. AuthenticArt cannot guarantee that it will be able to match the request for appraisal with an appraiser, or that it will get an appraiser to accept the mandate. 

iv. Regardless of the outcome, the Appraisal Service has a minimum cost of $35 US Dollars , which will be charged to the User upon request. Failure to pay the minimum fee may result in the suspension or cancellation of the User’s account.

v. Upon initiating a request for Appraisal Service, the User will have to pay the requested deposit before AuthenticArt starts its intermediary coordination work. 

vi. AuthenticArt is not responsible for the outcome or quality of the appraisal report resulting from the Appraisal Request, as it is only an intermediary, and any information contained in the appraisal report is at the sole discretion of the selected appraiser.
