These terms and conditions and any policies or documents to which they refer (collectively, the "Terms") set out the terms and conditions that apply when you purchase Artwork from the Walsh Gallery Monaco.
1.1. When certain words and phrases are used in these Terms, they have specific meanings (these are known as 'defined terms'). You can identify these defined terms because they start with capital letters (even if they are not at the start of a sentence). Where a defined term is used, it has the meaning given to it in the section of the Terms where it was defined (you can find these meanings by looking at the sentence where the defined term is included in brackets and speech marks).

1.3. Where we refer to "you" or "your" we mean you, the person purchasing an Artwork.
