Terms & Conditions
The objective of our GTCs is to govern the relationship between us in a fair and binding manner.
The version of the following General Terms and Conditions, which is in effect at the time of the order, shall exclusively apply to the business relationship between Good Grief Studio and the buyer. Good Grief Studio will not recognize any conflicting Terms and Conditions of the buyer, unless Good Grief Studio has expressly agreed to their application in writing.
Distancing from Linked Sites
Good Grief Studio makes no guarantee and assumes no liability for content (links) provided by third parties. This declaration applies to all links on our website.
All rights are reserved. All pictures, graphics, and content, as well as the layout of the entire website, are subject to copyright protection.
Your order constitutes an offer to enter into a purchase agreement with us. When you place an order with Good Grief Studio, we send you an e-mail confirming our receipt of your order and listing its details (order confirmation).
Right of Cancellation
The cancellation period is 14 days from the date on which you or a third party designated by you – which is not the carrier – takes possession of the goods.
To exercise your right of cancellation, you must inform us (Good Grief Studio, 15 Senator Ave, Hamilton, ON L8L 1Z3, Canada or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) by sending us clear and unambiguous notice of your decision to cancel this Agreement (e.g. a letter sent by regular mail or e-mail).
To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient if you dispatch the cancellation notice before the expiration of the cancellation period. A sample form for exercising your right of cancellation can be found under the appropriate item.
Consequences of Cancellation
In the event of a valid cancellation, anything received by either party in performance of the Agreement must be returned. If you cannot return some or all of the goods or can only return them in deteriorated condition, you must pay restitution to us in this regard. You need only make restitution for deterioration of the item and use of the item to the extent that such use or the deterioration is attributable to handing the item in a manner that goes beyond examining its characteristics and functionality.
If you cancel this Agreement, we must return all payments we have received from you, excluding delivery costs or any additional costs incurred because you chose a mode of delivery other than the one we offered and any additional taxes in individual cases (e.g., in the case of an intra-Community purchase) and/or charges (e.g., customs duties) – no later than within 14 days from the date on which we received the notice of your cancellation of this Agreement. We shall use the same means of payment for the refund that you used for the original transaction, unless otherwise expressly agreed upon with you. In no case will you be charged any fee for this refund. We can refuse to make the refund until we have received the goods back or until you provide proof that you have sent the goods back, whichever comes first.
You must return or hand over the goods promptly, in any event, no later than within 14 days from the date you notify us of the cancellation of the Agreement. The deadline is deemed to have been met if you dispatch the goods before the expiration of the 14-day period. You shall bear the direct costs of sending the goods back. You need only pay for any loss in the value of the goods if this loss in value is attributable to handling the goods for any purpose other than to examine their quality, characteristics, and functionality. For purposes of protection, the goods must only be returned in the original special packaging in which they were delivered, using all protective materials.

All packaging is designed to securely transport goods to destination. The packages are insured and are traceable as Canada Post packages.
A buyer who is not a consumer must promptly examine the goods for damage. If there is obvious damage, which is not noticed until after acceptance, the buyer must notify us of this within five days of acceptance. If the buyer fails to do so, notice of defects for such obvious damage is excluded.
Due Date and Payment
The party placing the order shall pay the purchase price by bank transfer before delivery (prepayment) or by PayPal, credit card or any other method made available by the shop software. Purchase against invoice can be arranged for business customers on a case-by-case basis, following a review by Good Grief Studio. Unless otherwise stated on the invoice, the purchase price shall be due within 14 days of the invoice date.
Packaging and Shipping Costs
The delivery and shipping costs incurred are not included in the purchase price and are shown separately during the ordering process and must also be paid by you.
In individual cases solely involving cross-border deliveries, you may have to pay additional taxes (e.g., in the event of an intra-Community purchase) and/or charges (e.g., customs duties). Payment is not to be made to the seller, but to the competent customs and/or tax authorities.
Reservation of Ownership
The ordered goods shall remain the property of Good Grief Studio until final payment in full.
Warranty, Proper Treatment
It is assumed the buyer know that all works can change appearance and color due to environmental influences. Good Grief Studio makes no warranty with respect to this unalterable process of change.

All works of art must not be exposed to direct sunlight, in whole or in part, hung directly over heaters or exposed to humidity that exceeds the level in normal living spaces. Accordingly, all works of art are not suitable for outside areas, basement rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens.
We strongly advise always wearing clean gloves when handling artworks.
If a damaged product is delivered to a buyer, it can be replaced free of charge. To do so, the original product must be returned to Good Grief Studio. As soon as it is received, a new copy will be sent to the customer.
