WINNING BID AUCTIONS100 reserves the right to reject a bid from any bidder. The highest bidder shall be the buyer and if any dispute arises between two or more bidders, the auction coordinator shall decide the buyer, or to re-offer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, AUCTIONS100 sale record will be conclusive. Although AUCTIONS100 will execute order or absentee bids, as a convenience to clients who are not present at auctions, AUCTIONS100 is not responsible for any errors or omissions in connection therewith. 11. RECORD OF SALE Record The record of sale, posted on AUCTIONS100 Live Auctions website, will be taken as absolute and final in all disputes. 12. RESERVE PRICE All the lots are offered subject to a reserve. A reserve is a confidential minimum price below which such a lot will not be sold. AUCTIONS100 will act to protect the reserve by bidding through the auctioneer. The auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the Seller and may continue to bid on behalf of the Seller up to the amount of the reserve. This may be done by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. After a lot has been auctioned, but has failed to sell because it has not reached the reserve, AUCTIONS100, at its discretion, may reveal the reserve the prospective post-sale purchasers. 13. ESTIMATE Catalogue descriptions of each lot generally include an estimated range of prices, within which AUCTIONS100 estimates the lot may sell. These estimates tend to be much lower than our approximate valuations. They should not be taken as comparable auction values, or as "prices." These estimates are made before the sale and are sometimes revised before the sale. Pre-sale estimates do not include the buyer's premium or applicable state/local taxes and other expenses. 14. INQUIRIES All inquiries regarding lots must be sent directly to the AUCTIONS100 via email and received 48 hours prior to the start of the auction. 15. COPYRIGHTS The copyright in the text of the catalogue, our websites, photographs, and illustrations of lots contained in the catalogue and websites belong to us. No one is allowed to reproduce or permit anyone else to reproduce such text, photographs, or illustrations without our prior written consent. 16. WITHDRAWAL PRIOR TO SALE AUCTIONS100 reserves the right to withdraw any property before the sale and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal. If the auctioneer decides that any opening bid is not commensurate with the article offered, he may reject the same and withdraw the article from the sale, and if, having acknowledged an opening bid, he decides that any advance thereafter is insufficient, the auctioneer may, in his sole discretion, reject the advance. 17. "AS IS" CONDITION All property is sold "as is". All sales are final. Neither AUCTIONS100, the auctioneer, nor any consignors makes any warranties or representation of any kind or nature with respect to the property, and in no event shall they be responsible for the correctness, nor deemed to have made any representation or warranty, or description, genuineness, authorship, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin, or condition of the property and no statement made at the sale, or in the bill of sale, or invoice or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty of representation or an assumption of liability. Absolutely no sales shall be canceled due to age estimate, condition issues, or whether or not they are expressed in the condition report. 18. ITEMS DESCRIPTION As a service to prospective purchasers, AUCTIONS100 may estimate the age and describe the physical condition of certain lots included in the catalogue. These reports are only the opinion of AUCTIONS100. Whether or not additional damages, repairs, restorations or other defects are described for certain lots, does not mean that all defects to such lots are described or that similar conditions do not exist with respect to other lots although not noted. Such descriptions are not intended to negate the conditions of sale included in this catalogue. All items in the catalog are sold as described by AUCTIONS100. The description, age estimate, and condition reports are only an opinion of AUCTIONS100. No statement regarding age, condition, kind, value or quality of a lot shall be construed to be an expressed or implied warranty, representation or assumption of liability by AUCTIONS100. Discrepancies of description shall be decided by mutually agreed upon experts whose determination must be in writing and is at the expense of the Buyer. Items are ascribed to given artists, age, and origins only upon exercise of AUCTIONS100 best judgment or that of an outside expert. No unqualified statement as to authorship is made. AUCTIONS100 suggests that the prospective bidder seek the advice of his own expert before bidding on any particular lot. AUCTIONS100 makes no representation or warranty as to whether the purchaser acquires any copyrights, including, but not limited to, any reproduction rights in the property. AUCTIONS100, its employees, or agents, do not guarantee the genuineness, authenticity, condition, or description of any catalogued lot. Absolutely no sales shall be canceled due to age estimate, condition issues, or whether or not they are expressed in the condition report. 19. Breach If the purchaser breaches any of its obligations under these Conditions of Sale, including its obligation to pay in full the purchase price of all items for which it was the highest successful bidder, AUCTIONS100 may exercise all of its rights and remedies under the law including, without limitation, (a) right to hold purchaser liable for the total purchase price (2) reasonable attorney's fee connected therein (3) cancel the sale and applying any payments made by the purchaser to the damages caused by the purchaser's breach, and/or (4) offering at public auction, without reserve, any lot or item for which the purchaser has failed to pay in full the purchase price, holding the purchaser liable including but not limited to any deficiency, costs, handling chargers, expenses and commission for both sales, and any and all incidental damages. 20. LIABILITY In no event will the liability of AUCTIONS100 to any purchaser with respect to any item exceed the purchase price actually paid by such purchaser for such item. 21. INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS International bidders and buyers are responsible to meet all customs/cities/import-export regulations. Upon request, AUCTIONS100 can assist but cannot be held liable for international laws affecting the delivery of the items. 22. ENTIRE AGREEMENT Waiver. This Agreement, including the AUCTIONS100 User Agreement and all exhibits and other documents incorporated by reference, set forth the entire understanding and agreement of the parties and supersedes any and all other written or oral agreements or understandings between the parties as to the subject matter of this Agreement. In the event of an inconsistency between this Agreement and any other document, which is part of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall govern. From time to time during the term of this Agreement, AUCTIONS100 may amend this Agreement (including any incorporated documents) by posting the amended terms on the AUCTIONS100 Site, emailing notice of the amendment to the Buyer, or otherwise communicating such amendment to the Buyer. Each amendment will be effective immediately after it is initially posted on the AUCTIONS100 Site, emailed to the Buyer, or otherwise communicated to the Buyer. (It used to read 30 days after the change was posted.) The waiver of a breach of any provision of this Agreement will not operate or be interpreted as a waiver of any other or subsequent breach. The laws of the People's republic of China shall govern all transactions.
