If you use this site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password.

5. product DESCRIPTIONS
Studio AKJ and its associates attempt to be as accurate as possible. However, Studio AKJ does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. No statement, whether written or oral, shall be deemed to create any warranty, representation or assumption of liability.
All items are sold “AS IS” and without recourse and Studio AKJ makes no express or implied warranty or representation of any kind or nature with respect to merchantability, fitness for purpose, correctness of the description of the physical condition, size, weight, quality, rarity, importance, medium, material, artist, genuineness, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin, exhibitions, literature or historical significance of any item sold. We do not carry out in-depth research of the sort carried out by professional historians and scholars. Colors and shades may look different on the screen as to how they look on physical inspection. Studio AKJ makes no warranty or representation, express or implied, that the purchaser will acquire any copyright or reproduction rights to any item sold.
Antique and vintage items are by their nature used and rarely in perfect condition. The condition of an item can vary widely due to factors such as age, previous damage, restoration, repair and wear and tear. Items are sold “as is”, in the condition they are in at the time of the sale, without any representation or warranty or assumption of liability of any kind as to condition by Studio AKJ. Any reference to the condition of an item (whether orally or in writing) is our opinion, is not to be relied upon as statement of fact, and will not amount to a full description of condition because our staff are not professional restorers or conservators. Images provided may not show the condition of an item clearly. The absence of any reference to the condition of an item does not imply that the item is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging.
If a product offered by Studio AKJ itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in the same condition as at the time of sale in accordance with our return policy.
6. RISK OF LOSS
All items purchased from Studio AKJ are made pursuant to a shipment contract. The risk of loss and title for such items pass to the buyer upon our delivery to the carrier.
7. Import and Export Regulations Regarding Tangible Property
The United States and most foreign countries regulate the importation and exportation of tangible property. Many countries require a declaration of export for property that is leaving the country. Additionally, most countries require an Import Declaration at the time of customs clearance of property into that country. Upon import, these countries may impose duties, other taxes and/or restrictions on the property. Many countries also prohibit or restrict importation or exportation of property containing ivory, tortoiseshell, whalebone, and/or products derived from other endangered or protected species, and require special licenses or permits in order to import or export such property. Other countries regulate movement of antiquities and cultural items, which in some cases are subject to a right of pre-emption or compulsory purchase by the country from which they are to be exported. It is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure that the property is properly imported into the buyer's country. If you purchase property that you plan to ship to another country, you agree that you are responsible for familiarizing yourself with and complying with any and all applicable rules and regulations.
STUDIO AKJ MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY AND ACCEPTS NO LIABILITY WHATSOEVER IN RESPECT OF THE AVAILABILITY OR ISSUANCE OF VALID IMPORT AND EXPORT PERMITS OR THE EXISTENCE OR EXERCISE OF PRE-EMPTION OR OTHER RIGHTS TO PURCHASE BY GOVERNMENTAL OR REGULATORY AUTHORITIES ANYWHERE.
