ArtéQuesta provides qualified investors with the opportunity to purchase art as an investment with the goal of increasing the value of the investor’s art portfolio over time. The following terms and conditions apply to the ArtéQuesta investment program:
ArtéQuesta only offers to investors artwork which individual artists have made available exclusively through the ArtéQuesta museum. Artwork made available to ArtéQuesta investors is not available for purchase through any other museum, gallery, dealer, broker, website or third-party.
ArtéQuesta is not an art broker. ArtéQuesta will not facilitate the purchase by an investor of any art from any other museum, gallery, dealer, broker, website or third-party, nor will it assist investors in any way in the sale of artwork which has been acquired other than through ArtéQuesta.
In order to maximize the value and security of an investor’s ArtéQuesta art portfolio, the investor agrees that any artwork purchased through ArtéQuesta will be resold through ArtéQuesta alone, and will not be made available for sale by the investor through any other museum, gallery, dealer, broker, website or any other third-party.
This disclosure is made by ArtéQuesta regarding the offering of art as an investment. Neither ArtéQuesta nor any of its directors or advisors guarantee the performance of the investment or the value of artwork which will be acquired by the investor. This Statement does not take into account the investment objectives nor financial needs of any person who might acquire fine art as an asset. All investments involve different degrees of risk. You should be aware of your risk tolerance level and financial situations at all times. A person proposing to acquire fine art as an asset should consider the risks of such an investment and seek advice from their accountant, attorney or other professional advisor before acquiring fine art as an investment. You are free at all times to accept or reject all investment recommendations made by ArtéQuesta, its directors and advisors. All artwork sold is subject to market risk, and any losses to the investor are attributed to market forces beyond the control or prediction of ArtéQuesta, its directors and advisors.
The works in the collection of ArtéQuesta are selected from the highest caliber museum and investment-quality art. They constitute singular works selected by international museums, unique to the market and to any other works created by the artists we represent. However, ArtéQuesta does not qualify the entire market or career of every artist represented within our collection. Some among them have enjoyed significant commercial success over the course of prolific careers. The artworks we offer stand apart from their commercially available works, and ArtéQuesta maintains tangible data substantiating the investment value of these unique works of art.

Each vendor must agree to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of your information in order to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure.

Legally compelled disclosure.

We store your personal information on a secure server and use procedures designed to protect the personal information we collect from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure.
Although we will take (and require our third-party providers to take) commercially reasonable security precautions regarding your personal information collected from and stored in connection with the Site, due to the open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that any of your personal information stored on our servers, or transmitted to or from us or a user, will be free from unauthorized access, and we disclaim any liability for any theft or loss of, unauthorized access or damage to, or interception of any data or communications.
