By bidding at our auction, whether in person, by phone, absentee bid, or on the internet, you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions. As used in the following terms and conditions, "GSA," "We," and "Us" refers to "Gene Shapiro Auctions, LLC." 1. There is a 22.5% buyer's premium added to the successful hammer price of every lot, which the purchaser of the lot agrees to pay along with applicable taxes as part of the total purchase price. Lots selling for over $500,000 hammer price incur a 22.5% buyer's premium of the hammer price up to $500,000, plus 14.5% of any amount in excess of $500,000. 2. Payment by Visa, Mastercard, and American Express is accepted only on lots selling for $25,000 hammer price or less. 3. Lots purchased through methods other than through ebayliveauctions may be subject to a different buyer's premium, as specified in the printed version of the auction catalog and terms and conditions as they appear on www.geneshapiro.com. 4. GSA has the right to hold merchandise if paid for by personal check until such time as the check has cleared. 5. Unless exempted by the law, the purchaser will be required to pay the combined New York State and local sales tax, any applicable compensating use tax of another state, and if applicable, any federal luxury or other tax, on the total purchase price including buyer's premium. Purchases picked up in New York or delivered to locations in Connecticut, Florida, or New York are subject to sales or compensating use tax of such jurisdiction, and GSA is required by law to collect and remit the appropriate sales tax in effect in these states unless appropriate documentation of exemption is provided. Buyers claiming exemption from sales tax must have the appropriate documentation on file with GSA prior to the release of the property. If property is delivered to a state where GSA is not required to collect sales tax, it is the responsibility of the purchaser to self-assess any sales or use tax and remit it to taxing authorities in that state. GSA is not required to collect sales tax for property delivered to the purchaser outside of the United States. 6. Any items bought by phone, absentee bid, or ebay, or otherwise not picked up in person on the auction day, will be stored at All Points Shipping located at 82 Myer Street, Hackensack, NJ 07601. Tel. (201) 820-3061. Domestic and international shipment, and pick-up of bought items, including by third-party shipment companies, may also be arranged with All Points Shipping by appointment. All Points Shipping charges a fee of $20 per item for any lot which is picked-up either by the purchaser or their representative. 7. The items offered for sale by Gene Shapiro Auctions, LLC. are offered either as agent for consignors or by us as owner. The contract for sale of the items is made therefore between the consignor of the property and the buyer. In cases where we own the property, the contract for sale is made between us and the buyer. 8. Bidders should personally examine each lot on which they will be bidding, in order to determine condition, size, and restoration or repair. All items are sold as-is and where-is. Gene Shapiro Auctions, LLC. disclaims any express or implied warranties or guarantees as to the authenticity, condition, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, correctness of the catalog or supplemental material, or other description of the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, provenance, exhibitions, literature or historical relevance of any property. No statement made anywhere, by us, our employees, officers, or agents, whether written or verbal, shall be deemed such a warranty or assumption of liability. Estimates of the selling price should not be relied on as a statement that this is the price at which the item will sell or its value for any other purposes. Photographic images of items being offered, whether provided in print or online, as well as references in the catalogue entry or condition report to damage or restoration are for guidance only and are provided as a convenience to prospective bidders. The absence of any reference in a condition report or photograph does not imply that an item is free from defect or restoration, nor does a reference to particular defects imply the absence of any others. Neither GSA nor its consignors are responsible in any way for errors and omissions in the catalogue, condition reports, or any other supplemental material. All sales are considered final with the following exception: GSA will agree to a refund of the purchase price if within twenty-eight (28) days of purchase, the purchaser obtains and sends to GSA a written letter from a mutually recognized expert or authority on the artist stating unequivocally that the work is a forgery or not by the represented artist. The purchase date is the date of the auction. The choice of expert or authority must be mutually agreeable to GSA and the purchaser. This exception will only apply to a work signed by the artist and not to an attribution, manner of, school of, circle of or follower of a particular artist. The letter must be signed, and on letterhead of the recognized expert or authority. Any exceptions to this rule must be specifically approved by GSA. 9. A prospective buyer must complete and sign a registration form before bidding. GSA reserves the right to require bank or other financial references for participation in the auction or bidding on a specific lot. GSA has the right at our complete discretion to refuse any individual bidder's participation in any auction. When making a bid, a bidder is accepting personal liability to pay the purchase price, including the buyer's premium and all applicable taxes, plus all other applicable charges, unless it has been explicitly agreed in writing with Gene Shapiro Auctions, LLC. before the commencement of the sale that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to us, and the we will only look to the principal for payment. 10. We reserve the right to withdraw any property before or during the sale and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal. 11. Unless otherwise announced by the auctioneer, all bids are per lot as numbered in the catalogue. 12. Gene Shapiro Auctions, LLC. and its auctioneer have the right at our absolute and sole discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding in such a manner as we may decide, to withdraw or divide any lot, to combine any two or more lots and, in the case of error or dispute, and whether during or after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to reoffer and resell the item in dispute. We reserve the right to reject any bid. Subject to our discretion, the highest bidder accepted by the auctioneer will be the buyer and the striking of his hammer marks the acceptance of the highest bid and conclusion of a contract for sale between the seller and buyer. 13. All lots in this catalogue are offered subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum hammer price at which a lot will be sold. If any lots in the catalogue are offered without a reserve, such lots will be designated with a "NR" symbol before the artist's heading. Reserves are agreed upon with consignors or, the absence thereof, in the absolute discretion of GSA. We may implement reserves by opening the bidding on behalf of the consignor and may bid up to the amount of the reserve, by placing successive or consecutive bids for a lot, or bids in response to other bidders. In instances where we have an interest in the lot other than our commission, such lot will be designated with a "F" symbol before the artist's heading in the catalogue, and we may bid up to the reserve to protect such interest. In certain instances, the consignor may pay us less than the standard commission rate where a lot is "bought-in" to protect its reserve. If the auctioneer decides that any opening bid is below the reserve of the article offered, he may reject the same and withdraw the article. 14. All merchandise purchased must be paid for within seven days of the sale. We shall be entitled to retain items sold until all amounts due to us have been received in full in good cleared funds or until the buyer has satisfied such other terms as we, in our sole discretion, shall require. If payment in full in good, cleared funds is not received within seven calendar days following the auction, we shall be entitled in our absolute discretion to exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies (in addition to asserting any other rights or remedies available to us by law): (a) hold the defaulting buyer liable for the total amount due and to begin legal proceedings for its recovery together with interest, legal fees, and costs to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law (b) cancel the sale (c) to resell the property publicly or privately on such terms as we find appropriate (d) resell the property at public auction without reserve (e) to charge interest at such rate as we shall reasonably decide (f) to pay the seller an amount up to the net proceeds payable in respect of the amount bid by the defaulting purchaser (g) to set off any amounts which we may owe the buyer in other transactions, the outstanding amount remaining unpaid by the buyer (h) where several amounts are owed by the buyer to us, in respect of different transactions, to apply any amount paid to discharge any amount owed in respect of any particular transaction, whether or not the buyer so directs (i) to reject at any future auction any bids made by or on behalf of the buyer or to obtain a deposit from the buyer before accepting any bids (j) to exercise all the rights and remedies of a person holding security over any property in our possession owned by the buyer, whether by way of pledge, security interest or in any other way, to the fullest extent permitted by the law of the place where such property is located. The buyer will be deemed to have granted such security to us and we may retain such property as collateral security for such buyer's obligations to us (k) to take such other action as we deem necessary or appropriate. In the case of (c) or (d) above, the original purchaser will be liable for any deficiency between the total amount originally due to us and the price obtained upon resale as well as for all costs, expenses, damages, legal fees, and commissions and premiums of whatever kind associated with both sales or otherwise arising from the default. If we pay any amount to the seller under (f) above, the buyer acknowledges that we shall have all the rights of the seller, however arising, to pursue the buyer for such amount. At our option, payment will not be deemed to have been made in full until we have collected funds represented by checks, or in the case of bank or cashier's checks, we have confirmed their authenticity. 15. All Points Shipping reserves the right to charge a storage fee of $5 per lot per day for any lot not picked up from, or shipped by, them within 5 days of GSA receiving payment for that lot. GSA will authorize All Points Shipping to release an item only after payment in full for the lot has been received by GSA, together with payment of all other amounts due to us by the purchaser, whether or not related to the sale of that item. GSA reserves the right to instruct All Points Shipping not to release an item, if any amounts are owed by the purchaser to GSA. 16. GSA is under no obligation, but may agree, to package and ship an item at the request of the purchaser. The purchaser agrees that packaging, shipping and handling is the absolute risk of the purchaser. The purchaser will pay all costs including, but not limited to, the handling and insurance associated with shipping. GSA will be held harmless from any claim and any rights of subrogation from an insurance carrier are waived against GSA. We are not responsible for the acts or omissions of third parties whom we might retain for the purposes of handling, packing and shipping. Similarly, where we may suggest handlers, packers or carriers, we do not accept responsibility for their acts or omissions. 17. Immediately following the sale, the buyer must provide us with his or her name and permanent address and, if so requested, details of the bank from which payment will be made. The buyer must pay the full amount due (comprising the hammer price, buyer's premium and any applicable taxes) not later than the seventh calendar day following the sale. This applies even if the buyer wishes to export the lot and an export license is, or may be, required. The buyer will not acquire title to the lot until all amounts due to us from the buyer have been received by us in good cleared funds, even in circumstances where we have released the lot to the buyer. We are under no obligation to assist in applying for an export license, but if the buyer requests us to apply for an export license on his or her behalf, we shall be entitled to make a charge for this service. We shall not be obliged to rescind a sale nor to refund any interest or other expenses incurred by the buyer where payment is made by the buyer in circumstances where an export license is required. 18. We will use reasonable efforts to carry out written bids delivered to us prior to the sale for the convenience of clients who are not present at the auction in person, by an agent or by telephone. If we receive written bids on a particular lot for identical amounts, and at the auction these are the highest bids on the lot, it will be sold to the person whose written bid was received and accepted first. Execution of written bids is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the sale and we do not accept liability for failing to execute a written bid or for errors and omissions in connection with it. With regards to telephone bids, if a prospective buyer makes arrangements with us prior to the sale we will use reasonable efforts to contact them to enable them to participate in the bidding by telephone but we do not accept liability for failure to do so or for errors and omissions in connection with telephone bidding. We are also not liable for any failure or execution to take bids submitted to us via third party internet sites such as eBay, nor are we liable for any technical difficulties involved in receiving those bids. 19. In no event will our liability to a purchaser exceed the purchase price actually paid. 20. We reserve the right to retain, publicize, and publish any photographs and descriptions of property we offer both prior to the auction and afterwards. We reserve the right to publicize and provide the results of any sale, including images, on our own website as well as to any third party we choose, including online auction-result databases. All images, text, photographic reproductions, and design in this catalogue are subject to copyright and may not be reproduced without our explicit written permission. 21. If any part of these terms and conditions of sale is found by any court to be invalid, illegal or unenforcable, that part shall be discounted and the rest of the conditions shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law. The rights and obligations of the parties with respect to these conditions of sale, the conduct of the auction and any matters connected with the foregoing shall be governed and interpreted by the laws of the jurisdiction in which the auction is held. By bidding at auction, whether present in person or by agent, by written bid, telephone or other means, the buyer shall be deemed to have submitted, for our benefit, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the state, county, province and if applicable federal courts sitting in such state. 22. GSA reserves the right to waive or modify the conditions and terms of sale by written agreement. Bidding on any item indicates your acceptance of these terms and conditions, as outlined above.
