  4. DESCRIPTION OF artisouls.

    artisouls  is an ecommerce website that allows people to buy and sell handmade and vintage goods and products within a fixed-price format. artisouls takes steps to ensure that products sold on the Website are only handmade and vintage  products.

    HOWEVER, artisouls is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers.

    Consequently, artisouls does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer. As a result, artisouls does not control the quality, safety, morality or legality of any products sold on the Website; and artisouls cannot verify the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. artisouls does not pre-screen users, the information about products being offered for sale, or the products themselves sold on artisouls. artisouls cannot guarantee the true identity, age, and nationality of a user. artisouls cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction. For these reasons, buyers and sellers use the Service solely at their own risk.

    By using the Service, you agree that artisouls is not responsible or liable for content uploaded by users of the Service (such as data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links) or the products sold on the Website.

    artisouls encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on the Website. You may also wish to consider using a third-party escrow service or services that provide additional user verification.

When you place an order or access your account information, the Website uses secure server software (SSL), which encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us.
