Introduction of Services
As an Artist/Creator, you can engage Seniiku Art Creator Marketplace (a.k.a 'SENIIKU Market'/'SENIIKU Creator Market'/'SENIIKU Gallery'/'SENIIKU') as an inclusive, online platform for the purpose of having these Gallery “Services” 1) Showcasing your Artwork online (also known as, Portfolio Page / Online Exhibition) as well as, 2) Online Sale of the Artwork, which you, the Artist has submitted to SENIIKU.
This agreement is solely applicable to Artworks approved and posted online by SENIIKU. This does not make SENIIKU a general agent or an Artist manager for Artist works both within and outside of SENIIKU.
The Artist and SENIIKU agree that The Artist acts as an independent contractor of SENIIKU. The Artist may not submit non-original Artworks or Artworks belong to other Artist. The Artist agrees to maintain, or update SENIIKU should any of their Artworks information change.

- In some countries, minor (those below 18) is permitted to disavow contract/agreement. Read this article.
