INFORMATION PROVIDED BY ONLINE AUCTIONS SG

Estimates are based on the condition, rarity, quality, and provenance of the item, on prices recently paid at auction (or in other markets or forums) for a similar property, and on information provided by the seller or other sources. Estimates are subjective and subject to change at any time. Any estimate is only an expression of our opinion of a range within which we think the sale price at auction is likely to be. Any estimate is indicative only and may not reflect the actual value of an item.

Neither you, nor anyone else, should rely on any estimate (whether orally or in writing) as a prediction or guarantee of the value, selling price, or likely future selling price of an item.

Estimates do not include taxes, royalties, commission, transportation, or other amounts payable (where applicable).

Our description of any item and any condition about any item, including about its nature, condition, genuineness, authorship, attribution, history, background, authenticity, artist, style, period, age, origin, materials, approximate dimensions, or provenance is our honest opinion. In reaching our opinion we use the standard of care a buyer would reasonably expect.

Any description or marketing or promotional material may be changed or revised by us, which includes altering the description of products or the contents of promotional material.

We do not make any promise, undertaking, obligation, guarantee, warranty, or representation in relation to any description, estimate, valuation, information, or opinion regarding any item. Any presentation, talk, information, or materials provided by us should not be relied upon as giving expert advice.

The condition of items sold through or by us can vary widely due to factors such as age, previous damage, restoration, natural variations, repair, and wear and tear. The nature of the items sold means that they will rarely be in perfect condition. Items may have been restored, repaired, treated, damaged, or altered and may include parts that are not original. Items are sold in the condition they are in at the time of the sale on an 'As Is Where Is' basis.

Any reference to an item's condition will not amount to a full and complete description of its condition, and images may not show the condition of an item clearly. Information about an item's condition may be available to help you evaluate the condition of an item. Information about an item's condition is provided free of charge as a convenience to our buyers and is for guidance only. It offers our honest opinion but may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration, or adaptation because our staff is not professional restorers or conservators. For that reason, it is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice.

Information may contain inaccuracies or errors including in the quality of digital information or images. We make no representation about the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of information or content or about the results to be obtained from using the Online Auctions SG website.

By bidding, you are stating that you are ready and willing to purchase that item for your bid amount, plus any shipping charges disclosed in the listing. If you are outbid, you are under no obligation to buy. But in all other cases, you are entering a legally binding contract to buy the item, and to deliver payment within the time period specified (3 days from auction end date). If you cannot pay, please don't bid. Your bid is final and non-retractable.

OWNERSHIP AND RISK

A buyer will not own an item, or title to it, until we have received full and clear payment of all amounts due to us from that buyer. We will only release the item to the buyer once we have received full and clear payment of all amounts due to us from that buyer.


COLLECTION AND DELIVERY

Items that you purchase must be collected or removed from our premises within three (3) days from the auction end date.

Online Auctions SG agrees to arrange collection or delivery of any item (including any shipment). Such collection or delivery will be subject to any terms and conditions of the relevant collection or delivery companies (including charges, payment, insurance (if any), and exclusions and limitations of liability). Online Auctions SG will inform you of the relevant charges.

Although we use reasonable efforts to take care when handling, packing, and facilitating any shipment of a purchased lot, Online Auctions SG is not responsible for any acts or omissions of any third party retained for these purposes. Similarly, where we may suggest any third party handler, packer, or carrier if so requested, we do not accept liability for their acts or omissions and you agree to release us from any such liability.

If Online Auctions SG agrees to arrange collection or delivery of any item (including any shipment), any claim by a buyer relating to such collection or delivery will be against the relevant collection or delivery company rather than Online Auctions SG and under no circumstances can a return be accepted or an adjustment of price or credit be made after the sale.

Online Auctions SG may at any time rescind any agreement in relation to collection or delivery of any item.

Otherwise you will be responsible for any collection or delivery and associated costs.

The buyer must ensure that it provides a valid delivery address for all items. P.O. boxes are not acceptable.


FAILURE TO MAKE PAYMENT

Time will be of the essence in relation to the payment of any sums payable by you to us.

If you fail to pay the total amount due in full by the due or required date (3 days from auction end date), we will be entitled to do one or more of the following (as well as enforcing any other rights we have by law).

We can also cancel the sale of the item. If we do this, we may sell the item again or re-offer it in a sale or auction.

Online Auctions SG reserves the right, in our absolute discretion, to reject, disable or deactivate your bidder account and/or to refuse your entry, or participation in future auctions.

And we will take all legal action necessary against any fraudulence that may result in loss of sales and could damage our service reputation.
