Terms & Conditions
Terms and Conditions of Sale These Terms and Conditions of Sale are made by and between Dia Bazar Corp. (Dia Auctions, We, Our or Us) and Bidder (Purchaser, Buyer, representative or Agent). At the sole discretion of Dia Auctions, Dia Auctions reserves the right to vary the terms of sale, and any such changes shall become part of these Conditions of Sale. By participating in any sale, the buyer acknowledges to be bonded by the terms and conditions of sale set herein. 1. All sales are FINAL; NO REFUNDS. All property is sold AS IS, and where is, and neither we nor the consignor makes any representation or warranty, expressed or implied, as to the merchantability, fitness or condition of the property or as to the correctness of description, genuineness, attribution, provenance or period of the property. Prospective buyer should personally inspect the lot prior to bidding to determine its condition, size and other considerations. We will assert best effort to provide the information and images in good faith to prospective buyers if requested, necessary, and available. We highly recommend the buyer have an expert examine the lot for you or do not bid on the item in any question. Please make an appointment to preview. 2. In any case as a condition report is subjective, Dia Auctions NEITHER guarantee NOR imply that no other defects may be present that have not been stated; more so, an absence of condition report does not imply that there are no defects or restorations on a lot. Written and oral descriptions are our opinions and should in no way be construed as a guarantee of any kind as to authenticity, age, condition, materials or any other feature of items being sold. We are not responsible for the correctness of any statement of any kind concerning any lot, whether written or oral, nor for any other errors or omissions in description or for any faults or defects in any lot. Neither the seller, ourselves, our officers, employees or agents, give any representation, warranty or guarantee or assume any liability of any kind in respect of any lot with regard to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, description, size, quality, condition, attribution, authenticity, rarity, importance, medium, provenance, exhibition history, literature or historical relevance. Our printed materials (i.e. Partial Catalogs, Catalogs, or Advertisements) are meant merely as a guide, not a guarantee. i. All paintings are sold AS IS, with NEITHER guarantee as to authorship NOR as to authenticity. It is the responsibility of the prospective buyer to determine whether or not any of these paintings might be original paintings, copies, etc. Condition reports are available when requested, but will only refer to the physical condition of the scroll or painting. ii. All Jade is sold AS IS, with no guarantee as age or authenticity of the color. All sales are final, no returns will be accepted. Judgment of such qualities is at the sole discretion of the buyer. iii. The lot description translations in Chinese should NOT be used to determine age, condition, authenticity, etc. Please contact us for a detailed condition report in Chinese. 3. We reserve the right to withdraw any property at any time prior to the actual sale and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal. We shall conduct the auction per lot as numbered in the catalog. Each lot is given a low and high sale estimate, based on market conditions and previous auction history, as an indication of the range in which the lot might sell at auction. It should not be relied on as a representation or prediction of actual selling prices. It is NOT price. 4. Unless the sale is advertised and announced as "without reserve", each lot is offered subject to a reserve. Dia Auction may implement such reserves by bidding through its representatives on behalf of the Consignors. Where the consignor is indebted to or has a monetary guarantee from us, and in certain other circumstances, we may have interest in the offered lots and the proceeds there-from other than our commissions, and may bid through a representative or agent to protect such interest. We are entitled to our standard commission rate where a lot is. 5. In the event of any dispute between bidders, or in the event the Auctioneer doubts the validity of any bid, Dia Auctions shall have sole and 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, our sales records shall be preeminent in all respects. 6. If we are prevented by fire, theft or any other reason whatsoever from delivery of any property to the Purchaser, our liability shall be limited to the sum actually paid by the Purchaser. 7.

Absentee bids must state the highest bid that the bidder is willing to pay and must be submitted no less than twenty-four (24) hours before the start of auction. In events of identical bids, the earliest bid received will take precedence. It shall be executed in competition with other bidders. Telephone bids must be submitted no less than twenty-four (24 hours) prior to auction date, and may be limited to the capacity of our staff pool. As telephone, absentee, and online bids are options of convenience to the buyers, we maintain that it will not be held responsible for live internet bids that are not sent, received, or executed by the administrator. We reserve the right to charge your credit card as a security deposit of up to 20% of the high estimate of the lots bid on, or $1,000, whichever is higher, and to refuse bids in the best interest of the Auction House. In addition, if a representative is bidding on a company's or someone's behalf, an authorization letter with contact information of the actual bidder may be required. 8.

Any dispute shall be decided by Dia Auctions at its sole and absolute discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the article in dispute.

It is upon the Buyer's sole responsibility to settle and comply with all export-import regulations, licenses, permits, duties, and fees relating to the sale and/or delivery of purchased goods. The delay or failure in exporting or delivery of a lot to the Buyer due to failure to secure necessary permits or licenses shall not be recognized as a reason to delay remittance of payments and applicable charges, or cancel a sale.

Insurance claims should be taken up with the third party carrier. Should any damage or loss occur to items transported by a third party shipper, we will not be held responsible for the outcome. 17.
