3.1.      We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all Product Descriptions are correct. We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the appearances, colours, textures or finishes of our Products. What you see will depend on your computer equipment, screen, or monitor and we are therefore unable to guarantee that a Product's images are an accurate representation of the actual merchandise. Please refer to the Returns section if you are unhappy with your Order.

3.2.      Products are subject to availability and Products that are in your basket are not reserved and can be purchased by other Users. We will do our best to remove any Products which have sold out at the earliest opportunity. As there is a delay between the time when your Order is placed, and the time when the Order is accepted, the stock position relating to a particular Product may change. If a Product you have ordered becomes out of stock after we have accepted your Order, then TTA shall not be liable to you for being unable to provide that Product. If such a situation arises, then we shall notify you as soon as possible and you will not be charged for the out-of-stock Product.

3.3.      Please be guided that sale of any Product, either via the Platform or in person, does not include sale or assignment of any intellectual property rights and/or copyrights attached to the Product. TTA and the respective artist/owner of the Product shall retain all intellectual property rights and copyrights (including all of the financial and moral rights) regarding the Product. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions restrict TTA and/or the relevant artist/owner’s rights of reproduction, representation, distribution, adaptation, communication to public of the Product.

3.4.      Although we try to ensure all our Products' prices displayed in the Product Description are accurate, errors may sometimes occur.

Your international payment card provider or bank will determine the foreign exchange rate and may add an additional processing or administration charge which you will be liable to pay.

3.8.      By placing your Order and making an offer to buy a Product, you authorise us to transmit information (including any updated information) or to obtain information about you from third parties from time to time and this may include verification checks involving your debit or credit card number or credit reports in order to authenticate your identity; to validate your credit card; to obtain an initial credit card authorisation; to protect you and us from fraud; and to enable us to arrange delivery of your Order to your nominated delivery address.

3.9.      Some of the payment providers we work with may offer you an alternative payment service, such as payment by instalments. In relation to any such payment service, the terms and conditions governing such service are between you and the payment provider. TTA shall not be held legally responsible for any such service provided by the payment provider. Please contact the payment provider directly should you have any queries on their service.


4.1.      You must provide us with complete and accurate delivery address information. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes not only the address that your Order is going to, but also the name of its recipient.

4.2.      Please note, if you choose to use any of our delivery partners’ personalised services (including but not limited to having your parcel delivered to a neighbour or left in a safe place), TTA shall not be held liable for any items which are lost, damaged, or delayed.

4.3.      We will make every effort to deliver your Order within the estimated timescales. However, delays are occasionally inevitable due to unforeseen factors or events outside our control, for example, material shortages, travel, or transportation disruption, import delays or higher-than-anticipated demand. TTA shall not be liable for any delay or failure by us to deliver your Order within the estimated timescales as a result of such delays. Please note that delivery of your Order may take longer during sale or other busy periods.


5.1.      We will use our best endeavours to dispatch your Order within 7-10 days.
