SQUARTEDS, Rotterdam 01-11-2016
Construction of a Squarted
A Squarted has the following characteristics:
A visual is printed on each Squarted;
Each visual is a unique rendering of a 3-D scene built in a CAD-programme;
This 3D-scene supplies us with a series of nine different unique visuals, images taken from different vantage points;
The nine different visuals are produced in two types of rendering, an A version and a B version;
Version A is a rendering in natural colours;
Version B is a rendering in warmer, more intense colours;
The size of a visual is always 900 x 900 mm;
The visual has been printed using high quality techniques on a solid 6 mm thick panel, finished with a black aluminum frame including suspension attributes;
The entire Squarted is durable, UV-proof and produced with sustainable natural materials;
The back of the Squarted is furnished with a few specific features, such as a unique reference number and a 3D QR-code;
The same QR-code is also printed underneath the visual on the front of the Squarted;
The finished product, the Squarted, is a unique visual on a unique panel measuring approx. 40 x 1015 x 1015 mm and weighing approx. 10 kgs;
Scanning the QR-code redirects one to the original position of the image in this webshop;
SQUARTEDS publicly registers and links the Squarted to the owner in the webshop;
All SQUARTEDS are available for sale until registered as sold;
In this digital age anything can be copied, as can the visuals or QR-codes on this website. SQUARTEDS cannot oppose this, but will at all times rely on copyright.
However, a copy remains a copy and is by no means an original.
There is only one real ‘The Night Watch’ and many copies and reproductions. ‘The Night Watch’ can never again be produced in its original form, but a Squarted can. The information used to comprise the Squarted remains available at SQUARTEDS and can be used, in special cases, to produce a new unique Squarted.
The rightful owner of a Squarted is assured of the fact that the purchased Squarted is unique and remains one of a kind, regardless the amount of copies spread.
SQUARTEDS can guarantee unique ownership on the following terms of delivery and acceptance:
The purchase price must have been received by SQUARTEDS, in full;
The order form must have been completed in full and received by SQUARTEDS;
The buyer agrees to public registration of full name, date of birth as well as place and country of birth on the information sheet connected to the Squarted;
The buyer agrees to pay 10% provision to SQUARTEDS when a Squarted is resold. This provision is paid directly to SQUARTEDS by the new owner, guaranteeing the unique ownership and ensuring a replacement warranty. For more information see Transferring.
Ordering a Squarted is only possible through our webshop and provided the chosen Squarted is still available.
If the Squarted has previously been sold it is no longer available. For more information see Not available.
All SQUARTEDS are priced identically, including VAT and excluding shipping costs.
Worldwide ordering. When ordering your country code is generated automatically providing the correct shipping costs.
The order will be processed when full payment has been received by SQUARTEDS and a confirmation of payment has been sent to the buyer.
The ordered Squarted will be delivered by a courier service to the indicated address within 15 workdays of ordering.
Orders are confirmed automatically by email.
The status of an order can be checked by using “track and trace”.
Returning a Squarted can only be done by using the return form;
The complete purchase amount excluding the shipping costs will be credited after the ordered Squarted has been received by SQUARTEDS in good condition.
If the Squarted was damaged upon receipt, photographic evidence must be enclosed with the return form.
Colours on a screen can differ from the eventual printed colours. A slightly deviating colour (tint difference) is not a valid reason to return a Squarted unless the colours of the Squarted deviate entirely from the example shown on the website.
Shipping costs are to be paid entirely by the buyer, unless SQUARTEDS agrees the Squarted does not meet this websites promised quality.
Solely newly ordered SQUARTEDS can be returned, within 14 days of delivery.
Transferring a Squarted is always possible, but the unique ownership guarantee can only be provided by using the transfer form.
To ensure the continuation of unique ownership and ownership registration the seller must fill out the form transfer seller and send it to SQUARTEDS.
The buyer must fill out the form transfer buyer, send it to SQUARTEDS and pay the provision required.
The ownership registration will be transferred to the buyer, after the transfer provision, paid by the buyer, has been received. With this the guarantee of unique ownership has passed from the seller to the buyer.
When a Squarted has changed owner without using the transfer forms then the unique ownership status is forfeit and SQUARTEDS reserves the right to produce a new unique Squarted from the same visual. The website will list this new Squarted as available. The existing Squarted is thus rendered a copy, as in the case of forgery, damage or theft.
Forgery, damage or theft
If a third party copies a SQUARTEDS-product, this is immediately demonstrable by scanning the QR-code and viewing the registration of ownership. In case of forgery SQUARTEDS will take legal action to prevent production and distribution of these products.
The public and transparant registration of ownership ensures it is futile to forge or steal a Squarted. Ownership can be verified by scanning the QR-code on the Squarted.
When there is evidence of theft, SQUARTEDS will declare the stolen property null and void and will produce a new unique Squarted with unique features at purchase price in the webshop or at the current insured value. The stolen Squarted is thus rendered a copy. Scanning the QR-code will direct one to the SQUARTEDS website where it will clearly be stated that the Squarted was rendered a copy due to theft.
In case of demonstrable molestation or severe damage SQUARTEDS can decide grant a request of replacement by producing a new unique Squarted.
When it is indicated a Squarted is no longer available, one could consider contacting the owner through SQUARTEDS to discuss a transfer. See Transferring. SQUARTEDS will never produce a second specimen of a Squarted, except in cases of theft or damage.
If a complete series is no longer available, SQUARTEDS can be asked to produce 9 new visuals, all differing from the previous series. In this case use the contact form.
