Terms of Service & Privacy Policy

Last updated: November 7, 2021

By using oldmountainart.com (“the site”), you are consenting to the following terms, conditions, and privacy policy. Please read them carefully before using this website.

Ordering a limited edition fine art print

Every print is printed and framed on-demand, so your order will be sent to Imageland once it’s been paid for in full. You can pay via internet banking.

Depending on how busy the Imageland folks are (and how much chocolate I bribe them with), it may take up to 4 weeks for printing, signing, framing and shipping. I’ll be in touch to let you know how it’s going. If you’re ordering for a birthday or other special occasion, let me know so I can make sure to get your print to you in time. If you have any questions about your order, please email me at ailene@oldmountainart.com.

Refunds and returns
I don’t offer refunds or returns unless damaged or defective. I use a monitor calibration tool to ensure the digital images I display on my website have the most accurate colour possible. However, due to differences in monitors, I can’t be responsible for variations in colour between your screen and the physical print.

If your package arrives damaged, please get the courier to make a note of it straight away and take a photo. If your print or the frame is defective, please take a photo. Make sure you keep all packaging, and contact me at ailene@oldmountainart.com within 3 days. Because each print is individually signed and numbered, you’ll need to return the print to us before we can get a replacement print to you.

Intellectual Property

This site contains intellectual property owned by Ailene Cuthbertson, including copyrights, and other intellectual property. You may never claim any of my intellectual property as your own or your unique creation, even with attribution.

All photos, artwork, and images of artwork are the sole property of Ailene Cuthbertson (unless otherwise stated) and may not be used or reproduced in any way for profit without permission.

However, I want you to share the content on my website.

Users can comment on posts on my blog. Comments caught as spam by Akismet are never posted.
