When ordering Products from the Site for delivery overseas you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination.

Customs policies vary widely by country, so you should contact the local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from the Site, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which the Products are received. Your privacy is important, and we know you care about how order information is used and shared.

12. INDEMNIFICATION

You hereby agree to indemnify and hold GRAHAM BUDD AUCTIONS LTD, its limited partners, shareholders, directors, officers, employees and agents of the foregoing entities harmless from all claims, liabilities, damages and expenses (including attorneys' fees and expenses) arising out of or relating to: (i) your use of the Site, including but not limited to the Products, Auctions, Buy Now and/or Services purchased via the Site; or (ii) any alleged breach of this Agreement by you. 

13. AUCTION RULES

The following is generally the way an Auction at the Site works, although additional information might appear on website screens. We reserve the right to change the Auction rules from time to time, including per Auction listing, at our sole discretion. 

You must be at least 18 years of age and have set up an account with a valid credit card (“User or Bidder”) in order to be eligible to place bids. 

Bidding on an item is an offer to buy the item at the price in the bid, provided the Bidder's offer is the WINNING BID at the close of the Auction. Each item is its own separate Auction. All WINNING BIDS are sales and deemed to be a legally binding contract of sale, compliant with UK Trading Standards. All Auction sales are final and not subject to cancellation or revocation once submitted. 

Auctions may or may not be subject to a “reserve” (a minimum amount that the seller wants to be bid as a condition to being willing to sell the item). However, we reserve the right to establish a reserve amount (and if we do, it will be posted in the item listing). 

If a problem occurs with a WINNING BID in an Auction, we might offer you an opportunity to reinstate your currently unsuccessful bid to a currently winning status at your last bid price (i.e., you might become the WINNING BIDDER even though you thought you lost). We will contact you at our option. At your option, you may decline or accept the opportunity to become the WINNING BIDDER. 

Auction closing times are approximate, and GRAHAM BUDD AUCTIONS LTD reserves the right to close an Auction earlier or later than the scheduled time. Time clocks used by GRAHAM BUDD AUCTIONS LTD or its service providers will control in the event of any conflicts regarding closing or other times. 

The highest amount bid at each Auction's close will be the WINNING BID for that Auction. No bid may be viewed as the WINNING BID until we have confirmed it such as by sending you an email. 

We reserve the right to cancel or remove Auction listings and/or User Accounts at our sole discretion, at any time for any reason and without prior notice. 

We reserve the right to re-offer a previously offered or sold item for any reason at our sole discretion, at any time. 

Bid manipulation or “shill” bidding of any kind is expressly forbidden, as is bidding for the sole purpose of increasing the purchase price (subject to all applicable law). The credit card (or any other payment method that we allow from time to time) of the person with the WINNING BID may be billed at the Auction’s close. 

Bidders are prohibited from communicating with each other for the purpose of manipulating the final purchase price of an item and from "spamming" (sending unsolicited commercial email to Users). 

If a credit card or other payment method is declined for any reason, we (or a service provider) will attempt to contact the WINNING BIDDER, usually by e-mail. If we cannot verify your payment method or if we do not receive payment within 24 hours of the Auction’s close, we reserve the right to;

a) offer the item in question to the next highest Bidder with a compliant payment method or;

b) re-offer/sell the item via Auction or other method or;

c) choose to retain the item for any other purpose at our sole discretion. 

You are not entitled to any refunds or exchanges, so please do not bid (directly or automatically via a max bid) unless you are willing to buy the item for the bid amount (plus applicable taxes and delivery charges etc.). 

Taxes will be added to all WINNING BID amounts. 

You agree not to take any action that would violate any applicable international laws. 

You agree to provide only true and accurate information about yourselves to GRAHAM BUDD AUCTIONS LTD and in all GRAHAM BUDD AUCTIONS LTD forms. 

It is a violation of law to make bids in a false name or with an invalid credit card or other payment method, even if GRAHAM BUDD AUCTIONS LTD software initially accepts such a bid. 

Please be aware that even if you do not give us your real name, your web browser may transmit a unique Internet address to us, which can be used by law enforcement officials to identify you.

Technical difficulties (e.g., bids might not be processed or accepted) or other difficulties (such as fraud or the like) might occur. No warranties or guarantees are made by us or anyone else regarding the absence of such difficulties. 

You agree that GRAHAM BUDD AUCTIONS LTD or their service providers or any affiliate companies will not be liable for such difficulties and that GRAHAM BUDD AUCTIONS LTD may decide how to deal with the resulting situation in its sole discretion (e.g., by rescinding all or part of the Auction or doing something else that appears appropriate to GRAHAM BUDD AUCTIONS LTD in the circumstances). 

Fraudulent Bidders may be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and involvement by domestic or foreign regulators or law enforcement can occur. 

We may suspend or cancel access to Auctions if it appears to us in our good faith and sole discretion that there appears to be a violation of these Site T&C, including (without limitation) these Auction rules. 

To report a violation of GRAHAM BUDD AUCTIONS LTD T&C, please contact us by emailing hello@grahambuddauctions.co.uk 

14. PAYMENT & YOUR REQUEST AND CONSENT TO OUR RETENTION OF YOUR PAYMENT INFORMATION 

Before making a bid you must supply us information about the credit card (or other payment method we might allow from time to time) to which any WINNING BID will be charged. If you register your payment method, such registration will be your consent to the Retained Payment Method Consent that appears below. Do not register to bid if you do not want to provide that consent. 

Only valid credit or debit cards are an acceptable payment method and any (if any) refunds will be credited to the same card in our discretion. By designating or registering a payment method, you represent, warrant and agree that you:

  • have provided accurate information about a payment method that is valid and has a balance sufficient to cover a winning bid;
  • authorise us to verify your information and payment method (which we may do, among other ways, by making a small charge (e.g., £ 1.00) to your card temporarily -- but once validity is indicated the charge will be eliminated from your actual card statement);
  • are authorised to use the designated method;
  • authorise us to charge your order (including all amounts dues such as taxes, shipping and other amount due hereunder) to your payment method; and
  • will keep your payment method and information valid and accurate. If your payment method cannot be verified, is invalid, or is not otherwise acceptable, your purchase (including WINNING BIDS) may be suspended or cancelled in our sole discretion. You agree that we may submit charges for processing even if your payment method has expired by the time we submit it. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your purchase. Your contract for your payment method (e.g., your credit card agreement with your credit card issuer) governs your payment method so you should refer to that agreement (not this one) with respect to your rights and liabilities as a payment method holder (such as a cardholder). You agree to make and keep a copy of records relating to your order such as your order confirmation page. 

15. RETAINED PAYMENT METHOD CONSENT

You may not bid on or purchase an item without first providing a payment method. 

If we allow you to register your payment method, that means you want us to keep your payment information on file for use in subsequent Auctions. By registering, you request us to do that. You also agree that we may charge to your payment method each subsequent purchase made on the Site using your credentials (e.g., password) until you remove your payment information. You may remove it by following the removal instructions provided once we allow registration or by contacting us at hello@grahambuddauctions.co.uk. If you remove it before your purchase is complete, however, you will need to supply a substitute payment method in a timely manner in order to complete that purchase.

For example, an autographed football may be used or new, but in either case it is not provided as a football that should be used for everyday use; it is assumed that the person acquiring the football will not use it but will instead treat it much like a treasured piece of art or other keepsake. For those items that are used -- they are not new because someone or a team of interest to you or others has already used them and may even have damaged them. 

17. ORDER FULFILLMENT ISSUES

In the unlikely event we are unable to complete fulfillment of an order from the Site, either in whole or in part, due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control or for any other reason, you agree that no compensation or replacement(s) will be issued. You will be entitled to a 100% refund related to the unfulfilled item(s) in question where payment has been previously made. 

18. COLOURS & CONDITION OF SALE

Every effort has been made to portray the colours of our products that appear on the Site as accurately as possible. However, because the actual colours you see depend on the monitor you are using, GRAHAM BUDD AUCTIONS LTD cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any colour will be completely accurate. It is a condition of sale that the Perry Mascot Statue's is not used for commercial gain. Commercial rights and rights by association to the Perry Mascot Statue's are protected.
