Liability claims regarding damage caused by the use of any information provided, including any kind of information which is incomplete or incorrect will therefore be rejected. All offers are non-binding and without obligation. Parts of the pages or the complete publication including all offers and information might be extended, changed or partly or completely deleted by the owner of this website without separate announcement.
Depending on the website visitor’s screen settings, colors might look different. The owner of this website can therefore not guarantee that the color of a print matches exactly the color of the print image in the printshop.
The copyright for any material created by the owner of this website is reserved. Any duplication or use of objects such as images, diagrams, sounds or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the owner's explicit agreement.
LIMITED EDITIONS – OPEN EDITIONS
A limited edition print, will only ever be printed in a certain amount of copies for this particular image. The editioning, i.e. the number of copies depends on the print size. Once all copies of a specific image have been printed (sold), this particular image will not be available anymore.
Prints in size 80x80cm are limited to 6 prints per image, whereas prints in size 40x40cm are limited to 9 prints per image. Open edition prints, are available without any limitation to the number of copies of a particular image.
Whether a print is offered as limited or open edition, is specified in the printshop for each available image.
For each limited edition print you will receive by separate mail a certificate of authenticity that is signed and numbered and which documents the editioning as well as further details of the print. The certificate comes including two serialized numbered holograms. One for the certificate, the second, identically numbered hologram should then be applied to the print, thereby assuring that the certificate relates to one particular print.
Limited edition prints without certificate of authenticity and hologram or with not matching holograms, are not considered genuine limited edition prints by me and are likely to be unauthorized copies.
PRINTING & MOUNTING
Every premium print is produced as either Giclée-print (archival pigment-based inks) or C-Print (exposed with subsequent classical chemical development). In either case premium archival-quality photographic art paper is used to produce the final print, giving it a 75 year longevity or higher. I offer framing and other mounting alternatives, like dibond or acrylic glass. I work with professional print studios that have the highest quality, acid-free and durable materials. These materials provide excellent archival conditions for the prints protecting them and increasing their longevity. In case your preferred mounting alternative is not offered in the webshop, please contact me and I will see to it.
PACKAGING & DELIVERY
All prints are safely packed using robust cardboard packaging materials in combination with bubble wrap and corner protectors to ensure that your print will arrive safely no matter where you are in the world. All prints can be shipped internationally and with a tracking code. Please contact me to receive a shipping quote for your location. When placing your order you will receive an indication of the estimated delivery time. As soon as your print(s) have been shipped, you will receive a shipping confirmation including tracking code.
PRICING & PAYMENT
The pricing of a print depends on the specific image, the mounting and the number of available copies, i.e. the edition. When ordering a specific print you will automatically be guided through the payment process, which offers you various payment options, e.g. Visa, Mastercard or PayPal. Once the payment has been made, you will receive a confirmation for your order and the print will go into production.
When ordering a print from this website, it is especially produced for you. Therefore please understand, that once a print order has been sent to production, the order cannot be cancelled and the print cannot be returned anymore. In the very rare case of a damaged print upon delivery, I will of course exchange the print with a new one at no cost. In such case please document the damage with pictures and a short explanation of the case.

6. LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
7. THE LEGITIMATE INTEREST PURSUED BY THE CONTROLLER OR BY A THIRD PARTY
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
8. PERIOD FOR WHICH THE PERSONAL DATA WILL BE STORED
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
9. PROVISION OF PERSONAL DATA AS STATUTORY OR CONTRACTUAL REQUIREMENT
The controller clarifies that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides the controller with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by the controller. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide the controller with personal data when the controller enters into a contract with the data subject. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject may contact the controller to clarify whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
