Terms & Conditions
The following, as amended by any posted notices or announcements during the sale, constitutes the entire terms and conditions on which property listed in the catalog shall be offered for sale or sold by iGALLERY LLC and any consignor of such property for whom we act as agent. By bidding at an auction, whether in person or by agent, absentee bid, telephone, internet or other means, the buyer or bidder agrees to be bound by these Conditions of Sale.
All property is sold "AS IS / WHERE IS" without warranty or representation, and the bidder acknowledges that neither iGALLERY nor any consignor to iGALLERY makes any warranties or representations of merchantability or of the correctness of any description or of the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, provenance or historical relevance of the property auctioned and sold. All references and descriptions of the property in any auction catalog, flier or advertisement, and any oral statements made by the auctioneer or employees of iGALLERY are intended for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon as creating, and do not create any warranty or representation by iGALLERY or any consignor. While every effort is made to determine provenance and authenticity, it is the responsibility of the Bidder to arrive at their own conclusion prior to bidding. ALL SALES ARE FINAL! There are absolutely no exceptions to this policy. Under extremely limited circumstances, a purchaser may request iGALLERY to evaluate voiding a sale: such request must be made in writing detailing the alleged claim; and bidder must notify iGALLERY in writing of such request within seven (7) days of the bidder"s receipt of the lot. AFTER THAT 7-DAY PERIOD, NO LOTS MAY BE RETURNED. Any claim as to authenticity must be first transmitted to iGALLERY by credible and definitive evidence and written opinion of two recognized experts in the field, and there is no assurance after such presentment that iGALLERY will validate the claim. In such cases the sole remedy shall be limited to rescission of sale and refund of purchase price; without presenting certified documents to support the alleged claim, iGALLERY has the right to retain any commissions and fees earned on that lot. Lots returned must be in the same condition as when sold. Late remittance for purchases may be considered just cause to revoke all return privileges.
iGALLERY shall have full discretion to refuse any bidding, to divide any lot, to combine any two or more lots and to withdraw any lot prior to taking bids on said lot. Some goods or lots may be subject to reserve prices set by either iGALLERY or the consignor of the goods, which is the confidential minimum price below which such lots will not be sold. The auctioneer may implement such reserve by opening the bidding or continuing the bidding in response to other bidders until reaching the reserve.
The successful bidder is the highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer. In the event of any dispute between bidders, or in the event of doubt on iGALLERY part as to the validity of any bid, the auctioneer will have the final discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, iGALLERY record is conclusive.
