3. EXAMINATION OF LOTS

5. BIDDING AT AUCTION

(a) The contractual relationship of Gavin Gardiner Limited and Sellers with prospective Buyers is governed by:(i) these Conditions of Business for Buyers;

(a) GGs knowledge of lots is partly dependent on information provided by the Seller and GG is unable to exercise exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Each lot is available for examination before sale. Bidders are responsible for carrying out examinations and research before sale to satisfy themselves over the condition of lots and accuracy of descriptions.

(a) GG has absolute discretion to refuse admission to the auction. Before sale, Bidders must complete a Registration Form and supply such information and references as GG requires. Bidders are personally liable for their bid and are jointly and severally liable with their principal, if bidding as agent (in which case GG’s prior and express consent must be obtained).

(b) All oral and/or written information provided to Bidders relating to lots, including descriptions in the catalogue, condition reports or elsewhere are statements of GG’s opinion and not representations of fact. Estimates may not be relied on as a prediction of the selling price or value of the lot and may be revised from time to time at GG’s absolute discretion.

(b) GG advises Bidders to attend the auction, but GG will endeavour to execute absentee written bids provided that they are, in GG’s opinion, received in sufficient time and in legible form.

(ii) the Conditions of Business for Sellers displayed in the saleroom and available from Gavin Gardiner Limited; (iii) Gavin Gardiner Limited’s Authenticity Guarantee; (iv) any additional notices and terms printed in the sale catalogue, in each case as amended by any saleroom notice or auctioneer's announcement.

4. EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY TO BUYERS (a) GG shall refund the Purchase Price to the Buyer in circumstances where it deems that the lot is a Counterfeit, subject to the terms of GG’s Authenticity Guarantee. (b) Subject to Condition 4(a), neither GG nor the Seller :(i) is liable for any errors or omissions in any oral or written information provided to Bidders by GG, whether negligent or otherwise;

(c) When available, written and telephone bidding is offered as a free service at the Bidder’s risk and subject to GG’s other commitments; GG is therefore not liable for failure to execute such bids. Telephone bidding may be recorded. 6. IMPORT, EXPORT AND COPYRIGHT RESTRICTIONS GG and the Seller make no representations or warranties as to whether any lot is subject to import, export or copyright restrictions.

(iii) accepts responsibility to Bidders for acts or omissions (whether negligent or otherwise) by GG in connection with the conduct of auctions or for any matter relating to the sale of any lot.

(b) The auctioneer will commence and advance the bidding in such increments as (s)he considers appropriate and is entitled to place bids on the Seller’s behalf up to the Reserve Price for the lot, where applicable.

(c) Without prejudice to Condition 4(b), any claim against GG and/ or the Seller by a Bidder is limited to the Purchase Price for the relevant lot. Neither GG nor the Seller shall be liable for any indirect or consequential losses. (d) Nothing in Condition 4 shall exclude or limit the liability of GG or the Seller for death or personal injury caused by the negligent acts or omissions of GG or the Seller.

10. FAILURE TO COLLECT PURCHASES

Earlier release shall not affect passing of title or the Buyer's obligation to pay the Purchase Price, as above.

GG’s assumption of risk is subject to the exclusions detailed in Condition 5(d) of the Conditions of Business for Sellers. (e) All packing and handling of lots is at the Buyer's risk. GG will not be liable for any acts or omissions of third party packers or shippers.

GG shall give the Buyer 14 days written notice before exercising such lien; (h) commence legal proceedings to recover the Purchase Price for the lot, plus interest and legal costs; (i) disclose the Buyer’s details to the Seller to enable the Seller to commence legal proceedings

(b) If a lot is paid for but uncollected within 6 months of the auction, following 60 days written notice to the Buyer, GG will re-sell the lot by auction or privately, with estimates and reserves at GG’s discretion.

GAVIN GARDINER LIMITED’S AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEE If Gavin Gardiner Limited sells an item of Property which is later shown to be a “Counterfeit”, subject to the terms below Gavin Gardiner Limited will rescind the sale and refund the Buyer the total amount paid by the Buyer to Gavin Gardiner Limited for that Property, up to a maximum of the Purchase Price. The Guarantee lasts for one (1) year after the date of the relevant auction, is for the benefit of the Buyer only and is non-transferable. “Counterfeit” means an item of Property that in Gavin Gardiner Limited’s reasonable opinion is an imitation created with the intent to deceive over the authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source, where the correct description of such matters is not included in the catalogue description for the Property. Property shall not be considered Counterfeit solely because of any damage and/or restoration and/or modification work (including, but not limited to, recolouring, refinishing or rebarreling). Please note that this Guarantee does not apply if either:(i) the catalogue description was in accordance with the generally accepted opinions of scholars and experts at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; or

(ii) the only method of establishing at the date of the sale that the item was a Counterfeit would have been by means of processes not then generally available or accepted, unreasonably expensive or impractical; or likely to have caused damage to or loss in value to the Property (in Gavin Gardiner Limited’s reasonable opinion); or (iii) there has been no material loss in value of the Property from its value had it accorded with its catalogue description. To claim under this Guarantee, the Buyer must:(i) notify Gavin Gardiner Limited in writing within one (1) month of receiving any information that causes the Buyer to question the authenticity or attribution of the Property, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons why it is believed to be Counterfeit; and

Gavin Gardiner Limited has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Gavin Gardiner Limited may require the Buyer to obtain at the Buyer's cost the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the relevant field and acceptable to Gavin Gardiner Limited. Gavin Gardiner Limited shall not be bound by any reports produced by the Buyer, and reserves the right to seek additional expert advice at its own expense. In the event Gavin Gardiner Limited decides to rescind the sale under this Guarantee, it may refund to the Buyer the reasonable costs of up to two mutually approved independent expert reports, provided always that the costs of such reports have been approved in advance and in writing by Gavin Gardiner Limited.

(ii) return the Property to Gavin Gardiner Limited in the same condition as at the date of sale and be able to transfer good title in the Property, free from any third party claims arising after the date of the sale. PHOTOGRAPHY
