Welcome to Alectic.com, the digital footprint website
Alectic is an online magazine and membership club, which provides digital footprints, otherwise known as Digital Certificates of Authenticity, for a variety of items.
Our digital footprints is a systemised process, designed by us, which track the movement of items through various ownerships, thus creating and establishing provenance for the item, so that our members can buy with confidence, in the knowledge that the goods that they purchase are bonafide.
Affiliated companies, agents and artists
We work alongside companies, agents and artists to ensure they hold all of the necessary licences, rights, consents, and permissions to be authorised to promote and sell an item.
We offer two levels of membership for our users:
Our free membership gives all members the ability to use our site and purchase any of the goods that have been offered by our affiliated partners, or any goods that are on general promotion through Alectic, along with our Digital Certificates of Authenticity, that can be stored in our system and then passed on when it comes to selling the item.
Our premium membership gives our executive members the ability to use our site and purchase any of the goods that have been offered by our affiliated partners and Alectic, including items which are exclusive to our executive membership, along with our Digital Certificates of Authenticity, that can be stored in our system and then passed on when it comes to selling the item. Our premium members can also benefit from our insurance policy. Premium membership is £3 per annum.
All levels of membership can enter our competitions and general promotional offers.
We accept limited liability for a purchaser receiving a genuine article of a product that has an Alectic digital footprint and which transacts for under £250, providing that any such transaction has occurred between two registered members of Alectic, and that there is proof of postage and receipt. We don’t accept liability for the condition of the product and all liability ceases upon 24 hours after delivery.
Preventing Fakes Bought On the Net
Our research has indicated that one in three designer items bought over the internet is fake. And that fakery exists in a wide range of industries, including the art and luxury goods market.
Given that there are a large number of fake objects around, people never really know what they’re going to get until they receive an item. From personal experience, we know that selling artwork without any proof of provenance means that one can struggle to command a reasonable market price from any such items. In the digital age, it is also apparent that fraudsters are easily able to fake the receipts of purchases and Certificate of Authenticity documents.
