Conditions and Terms for direct purchases
|Auction Conditions And Terms|
|1.||The auction is carried out voluntary and open to the public under an assumed name and for assumed invoice, excluding owned goods, for immediate payment in EUR (EuroEUR). Checks are being taken as a trade-in, in regard to unknown customers only confirmed bank checks are accepted.|
|2.||The acceptance to the bid goes to the person who bids the most after a three-time proclamation. The auctioneer has the right to refuse the acceptance to the bid, to withdraw lots, to regroup or split up. If there are equal bids, the lot decides. If there are misunderstandings, the auctioneer has the right to offer the lots once again.|
The provision for the auctioneer from the buyer is 20% of the price of the acceptance of the bid. Additionally, a lot fee of EUR 1.80 per lot will be charged. Possible packing & delivery charges as well as insurance are being charged separately.
Finally we charge the presently valid legal value added tax on the surcharges (provision, lot fee etc.) we demand. VAT on the auctioneer's commission and expenses will be charged separately and is payable by all buyers regardless of their country of residence and regardless of where the Iots are handed over or delivered.
The minimum bids are:
|4.||The acceptance to the bid commits to purchase. The buyer takes the risk as of the placement of the acceptance to the bid. Who bids for a third person is, besides the third person, responsible as own debtor. The delivery of the bought lots is being made on account and at the buyer's own risk. The seller holds the lots until the buyer pays the full amount.|
|5.||As soon as there are no special arrangements and payment is not being made immediately after delivery of the invoice or if delivery is refused, the buyer looses his right of acceptance to the bid and the lots can be sold freehand without any further notice or auctioned again at the buyer's costs. In this case, the first buyer can be hold responsible for lost profit or for possible minimum proceeds. Nevertheless, he does not have any rights in case of possibly achieved additional proceeds and can eventually be excluded from further bids by the auctioneer. If payment is being made too late, we reserve our rights to charge an interest of 2 % over the present valid discount rate.|
|6.||Invoices overdue as well as possible extra payments can be collected or sued for by the auctioneer in his own name.|
|7.||The action lots are carefully and conscientiously described, but without any commitment for the auctioneer and without guarantee for genuineness. Claims are being taken care of on account of the deliverer. The auctioneer is entitled but not obliged to refer the buyer with all complaints to the deliverer.|
|8.||Complaints have to be send to the auctioneer within 8 days after takeover or delivery at latest together with the stamps complained about. Lots and stamps have to be unchanged, i. e. in their original condition. Each complaint is ruled out if the lots or stamps are no longer in their original condition, i. e., unchanged. Changes are especially:|
|9.||Detachment, water treatment, chemicals, etc.. All costs for complaints and verifications are not being reimbursed to the buyer. The marking of counterfeitings through appropriate Federal Inspectors is not regarded as a change. Already existing certificates - if not agreed upon different before the auction - will be recognized. The auctioneer is entitled but is not obliged to refer the buyer with all its complaints to the deliverer. Complaints in regard to collections and collective lots are basically excluded. If objects already auctioned should be checked from specialists, this has to be told to the auctioneer within the above 7-day period in written form.|
|10.||"Hall bidders" buy basically "as looked at" and can only claim hidden faults, but not cut, perforations, postmarks, etc.. This is also valid for buys through third persons (representatives or commission agents). The one who buys already inspected stamps or lets them buy does not buy "as described" but " as looked at". Our quality descriptions "fine, finer, glamour-, cabinet- or luxury piece" are our personal classifications and cannot be claimed under no circumstances. Complaints in regard to collections and collective lots are basically excluded. The pictures of the things shown in the catalogue is decisive for the lay-out, so e. g. margin, perforations, centralisation or stamp of this picture.|
|11.||Claims of every kind against the deliverer and the auctioneer expire six month after the auction at the latest. Identification of delivering clients against the bidders is guaranteed in both directions.|
|12.||Written orders and telephone orders, which must be confirmed in written, will be conscientiously handled from our side but without any guarantee. In regard to "best or highest bids" or similar, we also bid until the three-time proclamation. These lots, too, have no right to strictly necessary delivery.|
|13.||The auctioneer has all rights reserved to exclude persons from the auction without mentioning any reasons.|
|14.||By giving bids or orders these auction conditions are being accepted by the bidder.|
