If you are the successful Bidder, you agree to pay the amount of your bid plus all applicable taxes and charges in the time and manner designated by the DANUTA INC. Failure to make such payment shall be deemed to be a breach of these general terms and conditions, and, in addition to all other rights and remedies DANUTA INC. may have under applicable law, you will be charged a re-stocking fee on transactions which are not installment payment.

These terms and conditions and each listing contain all of the provisions applicable to the agreement between DANUTA INC. as seller and each Bidder.
