THIRD PARTY SITES. References on AMC Art Sites to any names, marks, products, or services of third parties, or links to third-party sites or information are not an endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation of the third party, its information, products, or services.  AMC Art is not responsible for the content of any third party linked site or any link contained in a linked site.  Your use of a third-party site linked from a AMC Art Site is at your own risk and will be governed by such third party's terms and policies.

ORDER ACCEPTANCE AND BILLING. All billing information provided must be truthful and accurate.  Providing any untruthful or inaccurate information constitutes a breach of this Agreement and may result in order cancellation.  Prior to accepting an order we may also request additional information from you.  We reserve the right to refuse or cancel an order for any reason including limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies, or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance department.  If your order is canceled after your credit card (or other payment account) has been charged, we will issue a credit to your credit card (or other applicable payment account) in the amount of the charge.  We will contact you if all or any portion of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order.  AMC Art may request a pre-authorization for some orders placed online with a credit or debit card.  This pre-authorization will not be billed to you; however, your card issuer may hold this amount for a short period.  Your card issuer determines the length of time the pre-authorization is held.  We do this to ensure that the card details are still valid and that you have sufficient funds to complete the transaction. By confirming your purchase at the end of the checkout process, you agree to accept and pay for the item(s).

AMC Art reserves the right to limit the quantity of items purchased per person, per household or per order for any reason.  These restrictions may apply to orders placed by the same account, the same credit card, and also to orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address.  We will the notify customer should such limits be applied.  AMC Art also reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to prohibit sales to dealers or resellers.  For purposes of this Agreement, reselling shall be defined as purchasing or intending to purchase any product(s) from AMC Art for the purpose of engaging in a commercial sale of that same product(s) with a third party.

By purchasing a product from any of our Marketplace Retailers, you acknowledge that all Marketplace orders will be fulfilled by the third party Marketplace Retailer and not AMC Art.  The Marketplace Retailer will be responsible for all processing, shipping, returns, and customer service related to your Marketplace order.  Products purchased from a Marketplace Retailer can only be returned to that Marketplace Retailer in accordance with its return policy and cannot be returned to AMC Art stores or AMC Art.com.  Each Marketplace Retailer's shipping information, return policy, customer service information, and Marketplace Privacy Policy can be found on that Marketplace Retailer's Retailer Information page.

PRICING INFORMATION. AMC Art cannot confirm the price of an item until after your order is placed.  Pricing errors may occur on the AMC Art Sites or through AMC Art Marketplace retailers.  AMC Art reserves the right to cancel any orders containing pricing errors, with no further obligations to you, even after your receipt of an order confirmation or shipping notice from AMC Art.  AMC Art may, at its discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.  Pricing for products may be different on the AMC Art Sites or from prices available in AMC Art stores or on AMC Art mobile applications (pricing and availability remain subject to confirmation at checkout for mobile users).

PROMOTIONAL CODES. Promotional codes are limited in nature and may expire or discontinue with or without notice.  Promotional codes are void where prohibited by law.  Promotional codes may not be copied, sold, or otherwise offered.  They are not redeemable for cash and are subject to cancellation or change at any time for any reason.
