    GUIDE TO BUYING IN AN ONLINE ONLY AUCTION
    The following guidance is intended to give you useful information on how to buy in an Online Only Auction. We recommend that you read the guidance below carefully in order to familiarize yourself with the way that the Online Only Platform works before you start to participate in an Online Only Auction. It is also important that you read the Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only) which are set out below and note that Sotheby's acts for the seller; you should refer in particular to Conditions 3 and 4 of the Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only). Terms defined in this Guide shall have the same meaning as in the Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only) unless the context otherwise requires.
    1. REGISTER A VERIFIED ACCOUNT WITH SOTHEBY'S
    In order to be eligible to participate in an Online Only Auction, you must have registered, and maintain, a Verified Account. The registration process requires you to enter your debit card or credit card information, your address and to confirm that you have read and accept our Conditions of Business for Buyers, the Authenticity Guarantee and this Guide to Buying in an Online Only Auction.

    2. BROWSE THE LOTS FOR SALE IN THE ONLINE ONLY AUCTION
    Once the relevant Online Only Auction has opened, the Online Sale Information regarding each Lot for sale in the Online Only Auction is available for you to review.

    Pre-sale estimates
    As indicated in the Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only), the Online Sale Information for each Lot includes pre-sale estimates which are provided by Sotheby's as a guide for prospective Bidders to assist them with determining the appropriate amount to bid for a Lot. In our opinion, any bid for an amount which is between the high pre-sale estimate and the low pre-sale estimate stated in the Online Sale Information for the Lot would offer a chance of success. Having said that, it is important you appreciate that Lots can realize prices which are above or below the pre-sale estimates. It is advisable to check the pre-sale estimates prior to submission of a bid. Please note that the pre-sale estimates which are stated in the Online Sale Information do not include buyer's premium, any applicable taxes or tariffs.

    Condition of Lots
    The Online Sale Information includes the online catalogue description of the Lot; any online condition report provided in relation to the Lot by Sotheby's solely as a convenience (and the online images of the Lot shall be deemed to form part of any such condition report); any other information relating to the Lot or the conduct of the Online Only Auction which is published on the Online Only Platform (including this Guide to Buying in an Online Only Auction).
    All Lots are offered for sale in the condition which they are in at the time of sale in an Online Only Auction. Any reference to condition in the Online Sale Information will not amount to a full description of the condition and the absence of any reference to the condition of a Lot in the online catalogue description does not imply that the Lot is free from faults or imperfections. It is important that you appreciate that you will not have an opportunity to inspect the condition of a Lot prior to submitting a bid in respect of such Lot. Please refer to Condition 3 of the Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only) for further information regarding the basis upon which your bid for a Lot is submitted.

    Provenance
    In certain circumstances, Sotheby's may publish in the online catalogue description for a Lot the history of ownership of a work of art if such information contributes to scholarship or is otherwise well known and assists in distinguishing the work of art. However, the identity of the seller or previous owners may not be disclosed for a variety of reasons. For example, such information may be excluded to accommodate a seller's request for confidentiality or because the identity of prior owners is unknown given the age of the work of art.

    Bidding practices
    In situations where a person who is allowed to bid on a Lot has a direct or indirect interest in such Lot, such as the beneficiary or executor of an estate selling the Lot, a joint owner of the Lot, or a party providing or participating in a guarantee of the Lot, Sotheby's will notify you by email and publish a notification in the Online Sale Information that interested parties may bid on the Lot. In certain instances, interested parties may have knowledge of the reserves.
    Sotheby's employees may bid only if the employee does not know the reserve and fully complies with Sotheby's internal rules governing employee bidding.

    Information regarding shipping and delivery
    Sotheby's Shipping Department can advise buyers on exporting and shipping property. Our office is open between the hours of 9.30am and 6.00pm and you can contact the Shipping advisorPost Sale Services on the number set out in the online catalogue.

    3. SUBMISSION OF A BID FOR A LOT IN AN ONLINE ONLY AUCTION
    An Online Only Auction can be fast moving. Competitive bidding can often escalate very quickly. Once you have set up a Verified Account, you will be able to submit a bid for a Lot by entering your maximum bid and clicking the 'Leave Bid' button which appears at Lot level on the Online Only Platform. If you haven't already registered as a Verified Accountholder, you will be prompted to do so at that point. You will then be asked to review and confirm your maximum bid. As soon as the 'Place Bid' button (which appears at Lot level on the Online Only Platform) is clicked, your bid is submitted.

    Bids can be submitted through the Online Only Platform from the start of the Online Only Auction until the Lot closes.

In cases where two equivalent maximum bids are submitted, the first bid received will take priority.

    4. MONITOR YOUR BIDS
    If you are outbid at any time you will receive an email notification informing you accordingly and the email notification will provide a link to follow to increase your bid. We encourage you to monitor the bids on Lots throughout the duration of the Online Only Auction to ensure your status as the highest bidder up until the close of the Online Only Auction.

    5. CLOSING THE ONLINE ONLY AUCTION
    An end time is displayed for each Lot at Lot level on the Online Only Platform. Lots will close at the time stated at Lot level on the Online Only Platform unless a bid is placed within 5 minutes of a Lot's scheduled end time. If this occurs, Sotheby's will extend the sale of that Lot by 5 minutes from the time of the last bid. The extension of any Lot's closing time does not affect the closing time of the following Lots. This may result in Lots closing out of numerical order.

    6. HOW TO PAY FOR YOUR LOT

    7. FURTHER INFORMATION REGARDING SHIPPING, EXPORT OF PROPERTY AND RELATED MATTERS
    Sotheby's Shipping Department can advise buyers on exporting and shipping property. Our office is open between the hours of 9.30am and 6.00pm and you can contact the Shipping advisorPost Sales Services on the number set out in the online catalogue.
    DespatchDispatch will be arranged at the buyer's expense. Sotheby's may receive a fee for its own account from the agent arranging the despatchdispatch. Estimates and information on all methods can be provided upon request and enquiries should be marked for the attention of Sotheby's Shipping Department and faxed to (852) 2523 6489Post Sale Services. Your shipper will include a quote for transit insurance. All shipments should be unpacked and checked on delivery and any discrepancies notified to the transit insurer or shipper immediately.
    The export of any lot from Hong Kong or import into any other country may be subject to one or more export or import licences being granted. It is the buyer's responsibility to obtain any relevant export or import licence. The denial of any licence required or delay in obtaining such licence cannot justify the cancellation of the sale or any delay in making payment of the total amount due. Sotheby's, upon request and for an administrative fee, may apply for a licence to export your lot(s) outside Hong Kong. Sotheby's recommends that you retain all import and export papers, including licences, as in certain countries you may be required to produce them to governmental authorities.
    Items made of or incorporating plant or animal material, such as coral, crocodile, ivory, whalebone, tortoiseshell, etc., irrespective of age or value, may require a licence or certificate prior to exportation and require additional licences or certificates upon importation to any country outside Hong Kong. Please note that the ability to obtain an export licence or certificate does not ensure the ability to obtain an import licence or certificate in another country, and vice versa. For example, it is illegal to import African elephant ivory into the United States. Sotheby's suggests that buyers check with their own government regarding wildlife import requirements prior to placing a bid. It is the buyer's responsibility to obtain any export or import licences and/or certificates as well as any other required documentation (please refer to Condition 10 of the Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only)).


    CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS FOR BUYERS (ONLINE ONLY)

    These Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only) set out the terms upon which Sotheby's and the Seller offer the Lots for sale to Bidders.

    You should read these Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only) and the Online Sale Information (including, but not limited to, the Guide to Buying in an Online Only Auction set out above) carefully before placing a bid for any Lot. In particular, Bidders' attention is specifically drawn to Condition 4 below, which contains specific limitations and exclusions of the legal liability of Sotheby's and Sellers.

    By bidding for a Lot in an Online Only Auction on the Online Only Platform, you agree that these Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only) and the Online Sale Information shall be contractually binding on you. In the event that you are the successful Bidder for a Lot in an Online Only Auction, you agree that these Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only) and the applicable Online Sale Information will constitute the contract which governs the relationship between Sotheby's, Sellers and Bidders.

    1. Introduction
    (a) Sotheby's and Sellers' contractual relationship with prospective Buyers is governed by:
    (i) these Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only);

    (iv) Sotheby's Authenticity Guarantee, as applicable to the item of Property (set out below).

In the case of (i), Sotheby's provides services to the Seller including, but not limited to, concluding the sale contract which exists directly between the Seller and the Buyer (with Sotheby's acting as agent on behalf of the Seller).

    3. Duties of Bidders and of Sotheby's in respect of items for sale
    (a) Sotheby's knowledge in relation to each Lot is partially dependent on information provided to it by the Seller, and Sotheby's is not able to and does not carry out exhaustive due diligence on each Lot. Bidders acknowledge this fact and accept responsibility for carrying out investigations to satisfy themselves as to the Lots in which they may be interested.

    (b) Bidders acknowledge that many Lots are of an age and type which means that they are not in perfect condition. All Lots are offered for sale in the condition they are in at the time of sale in the relevant Online Only Auction. Any reference to condition in the Online Sale Information will not amount to a full description of condition and the absence of any reference to the condition of a Lot in the online catalogue description does not imply that the Lot is free from faults or imperfections. Condition reports may be available to assist Bidders with assessing the condition of a Lot and are for guidance only. The online images of the Lot form part of the condition report provided by Sotheby's. Certain online images of the Lot may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the Lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the Lot's actual colour and shades. The Online Sale Information and/or any condition report relating to the Lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the Lot but you should note that the Lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the Lot or shown in the online images of the Lot. The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. For that reason, Sotheby's condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the Lot. Please note that all electrical and mechanical goods are sold on the basis of their artistic and decorative value only, and should not be assumed to be operative. It is essential that prior to any intended use, the electrical system for any Lot is checked and approved by a qualified electrician.

    (c) The Online Sale Information provided to Bidders in respect of a Lot, and any other estimate, whether written or oral, or other report, commentary or valuation, is not a representation of fact but rather is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. Any estimate 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 in Sotheby's absolute discretion.

    (d) No representations or warranties are made by Sotheby's or the Seller as to whether any Lot is subject to copyright or whether the Buyer acquires copyright in any Lot.

    (e) Subject to the matters referred to at 3(a) to 3(d) above and to the specific exclusions contained at Condition 4 below, Sotheby's shall exercise such reasonable care when making express statements in the Online Sale Information (including, but not limited to, the catalogue description and any condition report relating to the Lot) as is consistent with the standard of care which a Bidder would reasonably expect from an auction house of Sotheby's standing taking into account the estimate of the relevant Lot and in the light of:
    (i) the information provided to it by the Seller;
    (ii) scholarship and technical knowledge; and
    (iii) the generally accepted opinions of relevant experts, in each case at the time any such express statement is made.

    4. Exclusions and limitations of liability to Buyers
    (a) Sotheby's shall refund the Purchase Price to the Buyer in circumstances where it deems that the Lot is a Counterfeit and each of the conditions of the applicable Authenticity Guarantee has been satisfied.

    (b) In the light of the matters in Condition 3 above and subject to Conditions 4(a) and 4(e), neither any Sotheby's Company nor the Seller:
    (i) is liable for any errors or omissions in information provided to Bidders by Sotheby's (or any Sotheby's Company), whether orally or in writing, whether negligent or otherwise, except as set out in Condition 3(e) above;
    (ii) gives any guarantee or warranty to Bidders and any implied warranties and conditions are excluded (save in so far as such obligations cannot be excluded by law) other than the express warranties given by the Seller to the Buyer in Condition 2 of the Sellers' Conditions of Business;
    (iii) accepts responsibility to any Bidders in respect of acts or omissions (whether negligent or otherwise) by Sotheby's in connection with the conduct of the Online Only Auction and/or the operation of the Online Only Platform or for any matter relating to the sale of any Lot.

    (c) Unless Sotheby's owns a Lot offered for sale, it is not responsible for any breach of these conditions by the Seller.

    (d) Without prejudice to Condition 4(b), any claim against Sotheby's or the Seller by a Bidder is limited to the amount of Purchase Price with regard to that Lot. Neither Sotheby's nor the Seller shall under any circumstances be liable for any indirect or consequential losses.

    (e) Nothing in this Condition 4 shall exclude or limit Sotheby's liability in respect of any fraudulent misrepresentation made by Sotheby's or the Seller, or in respect of death or personal injury caused by the negligent acts or omissions of Sotheby's or the Seller.

Sotheby's has absolute discretion to refuse an application to register for, or bid in, an Online Only Auction. Throughout the registration process, Sotheby's has absolute discretion to request Bidders to supply such additional information and references as may be required by Sotheby's.

    (f) Sotheby's reserves the right to deactivate your Verified Account at any time prior to, during, or after an Online Only Auction.

    6. Bidding in an Online Only Auction
    (a) Bidding opens at a specified amount (which is below the presale low estimate for the Lot) and escalates in bid increments which are set out in the Online Sale Information relating to the Lot and which are determined at Sotheby's discretion). Sotheby's may vary the amount of the bid increments during the course of an Online Only Auction, at our sole discretion. Bids for a Lot may only be submitted between the dates and times specified in the Online Sale Information relating to the applicable Online Only Auction.

    (b) An Online Only Auction can be fast-moving. Competitive bidding can often escalate very quickly. Once you have set up a Verified Account, you will be able to submit a bid for a Lot by entering your maximum bid and clicking the 'Leave Bid' button. If you haven't already registered as a Verified Accountholder, you will be prompted to do so at that point. You will then be asked to review and confirm your maximum bid. As soon as the 'Place Bid' button is clicked, your bid is submitted. You accept and agree that a bid which is submitted using the 'Leave Bid' button. Each Bidder will be entitled to amend, retract or revoke up to three separate bids in an Online Only Auction but thereafter, the Online Only Platform will not under any circumstances allow you to amend, retract or revoke a bid. If a bid is successfully submitted on a Lot in an Online Only Auction from a Bidder's computer or mobile device, the Bidder irrevocably agrees to pay the amounts identified in Condition 8(b) below, in full. Sotheby's is not responsible for any errors that the Bidder makes in bidding on a Lot. Sotheby's reserves the right to restart an Online Only Auction or to restart bidding on a particular Lot if we consider it is necessary or appropriate or reasonable to do so.

    (c) The Online Only Platform requires that you submit a bid which correlates to one of the increments set out in the bidding increment table which is available to view at Lot level.

    (d) If you have the leading bid on a Lot, you will receive a notification on the Online Only Platform informing you that you are the highest bidder. If you are outbid by another Bidder, you will receive an email notification to inform you accordingly.

    (e) In the event that you submit a bid for an amount at which a bid has already been accepted, your bid shall be rejected.

    (f) Unless Sotheby's decides to exercise its discretion in accordance with Condition 6(g) below, the highest bid when the Lot closes will be the successful Bidder. This means that a contract for sale has been formed between the Seller and the successful Bidder at the end of the Online Only Auction. The successful Bidder will receive an email notification of any successful bid and will be invoiced by Sotheby's in accordance with Condition 8 below.

    (g) The sale record for an Online Only Auction maintained by Sotheby's will be taken as absolute and final in all disputes. In the event of any discrepancy between the sale record for an Online Only Auction maintained by Sotheby's and any message or notification provided to you in relation to your bid on a Lot and/or the applicable Online Only Auction, the sale record for the Online Only Auction maintained by Sotheby's shall prevail.

    (h) Sotheby's reserves the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to reject, revoke or refuse to accept any bid submitted for a Lot using the Online Only Platform even those bids which have previously been accepted; to withdraw any Lot whether prior to or during the Online Only Auction and Sotheby's shall have no liability whatsoever in connection with such withdrawal; to divide or combine any Lots; or to restart the bidding on a Lot at any time during the Online Only Auction.

    7. Operation of the Online Only Platform
    (a) Unless otherwise specified, all Lots are offered subject to a Reserve, which shall be no higher than the low presale estimate at the opening time for the applicable Online Only Auction. If any Lot is not subject to a Reserve, the 'No Reserve' symbol will be displayed against the Lot in the Online Sale Information. Under no circumstances will the system place any bid on behalf of the Seller at or above the Reserve.

    (b) Sotheby's offers the Online Only Platform as a convenience to its clients and the Online Only Platform shall be operated by Sotheby's using reasonable care. The application that enables participation in an Online Only Auction via the Online Only Platform is optimized for broadband connectivity (DSL or cable modem). Broadband or other internet capacity constraints, corporate firewalls and other technical problems beyond our reasonable control may create difficulties for some users including, for example, in relation to accessing an Online Only Auction via the Online Only Platform and in maintaining continuity of such access. Sotheby's will not be liable for any errors or failure by Bidders to place bids using the Online Only Platform via the internet or a mobile device (except where any such error or failure is within Sotheby's reasonable control) including, without limitation, errors or failures caused by: (i) any loss of connection between Bidders and the Online Only Platform; (ii) a breakdown or fault with the online bidding software or other technical services which relate to the Online Only Platform; and/or (iii) a breakdown or fault with any internet connection, computer, mobile device or system.

    (c) As a potential Bidder, you acknowledge and accept that you shall not be given an opportunity to inspect the property prior to bidding in the Online Only Auction.

    8. Payment for a purchased Lot
    (a) If you are a successful Buyer of a Lot, you will receive by email an invoice from Sotheby's as soon as reasonably practicable after the final Lot in the relevant Online Only Auction closes. In the event of any discrepancy between the any email notifications received by you from the Online Only Platform and the invoice emailed to you by Sotheby's after the relevant Online Only Auction closes, the invoice prevails. Terms and conditions regarding payment of the invoice are set out below.

    (b) The invoice for the Purchase Price of the purchased Lot (the "Buyer's Invoice") which will include:

    (i) the Hammer Price;
    (ii) the Buyer's Premium;

    Subject to Condition 10(e), Sotheby's will also email you a shipping quote upon request covering the Buyer's Shipping Costs (the "Buyer's Shipping Quote") to the address registered on your Verified Account. Please refer to Condition 10 of these Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only) for further information. For international Buyers, the terms of sale are Delivery Duty Unpaid. If you have purchased a Lot for delivery outside of Hong Kong, you acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to ascertain and pay all international duties, custom charges, taxes, charges and tariffs owed to the appropriate government entity or that otherwise need to be paid prior to shipment and/or delivery including any third party charges necessary to facilitate shipment.

    (c) Sotheby's charges a Buyer's Premium to the Buyer on the Hammer Price for each Lot sold. The amount of the Buyer's Premium is set out in the Guide to Buying in an Online Only Auction set out above.

    (d) The Buyer of a Lot is solely responsible for the payment of any sales tax or value added sales tax, sales or compensating use tax or any other similar tax payable as a result of the sale of a Lot. Further information and guidance as to the application of such taxes is provided in the Guide to Buying in an Online Only Auction set out above.

    (f) Unless otherwise agreed, payment of the total amount specified on the purchase invoice for a Lot is due by the Buyer immediately following receipt of the Sotheby's invoice for the relevant purchased Lot and in any event no later than 48 hours after receipt of the Sotheby's receipt (the "Due Date") notwithstanding any requirements for export, import or other permits for such Lot. Sotheby's will only accept payment from the registered Bidder and we cannot change the Buyer's name on an invoice or reissue the invoice in a name which differs to the name of the registered Bidder. If you are registered to bid as a company, your company will need to pay for any purchases in the name of the company via an accepted payment method. Partial payment of a Lot, or payment across multiple credit cards for a single lot, is not permitted. Further information regarding accepted payment methods is set out in the Guide to Buying in an Online Only Auction set out above.

    (g) Title in a purchased Lot will not pass until Sotheby's has received the total amounts due for that Lot in accordance with Condition 8(b) above in cleared funds. Sotheby's is not obliged to release a Lot to the Buyer until title in the Lot has passed and appropriate identification has been provided, and any earlier release does not affect the passing of title or the Buyer's unconditional obligation to pay the total amounts due for that Lot in accordance with Condition 8(b) above.

    (h) Risk in and responsibility for the purchased Lot will transfer to the Buyer as follows: (i) if Sotheby's dispatches the Lot to the Buyer using the method of shipping specified for the Lot in the relevant Online Only Auction, when the Lot comes into the physical possession of the Buyer or a person identified by the Buyer to take physical possession of the Lot on the Buyer's behalf; or (ii) if collection by the Buyer in person is permitted for the relevant Online Only Auction, when the Buyer collects the Lot. As a Buyer, you acknowledge and agree that the Lot is at your risk if you choose to exercise any right you may have to cancel the contract for the purchase of the Lot (in accordance with the procedure set out at Condition 11 below) and that you should therefore ensure that you insure the Lot against loss or damage until it is returned to Sotheby's.

    (i) If you fail to pay us the total amounts due for the purchased Lot(s) in accordance with Condition 8(b) above in full by the Due Date, Sotheby's will be entitled to exercise any of the remedies identified at Condition 9 below.

    9. Remedies for non-payment
    Without prejudice to any rights the Seller may have, if the Buyer without prior agreement fails to make payment for the Lot by the Due Date, Sotheby's may in its sole discretion (having informed the Seller) exercise one or more of the following remedies:

    (a) store the Lot at its premises or elsewhere at the Buyer's sole risk and expense;

    (b) cancel the sale of the Lot;

    (c) set off any amounts owed to the Buyer by a Sotheby's Company against any amounts owed to Sotheby's by the Buyer in respect of the Lot;

    (d) apply any payments made to Sotheby's by the Buyer as part of the amounts due pursuant to Condition 8(b) above towards that or any other Lot purchased by the Buyer, or to any shortfall on the resale of any Lot pursuant to paragraph (h) below, or to any damages suffered by Sotheby's as a result of breach of contract by the Buyer;

    (e) reject future bids from the Buyer or render such bids subject to payment of a deposit;

    (f) charge interest at a rate not exceeding 2% per month from the Due Date to the date the Purchase Price and relevant Buyer's Expenses are received in cleared funds (both before and after judgement);

    (g) exercise a lien over any of the Buyer's property which is in the possession of a Sotheby's Company. Sotheby's shall inform the Buyer of the exercise of any such lien and within fourteen (14) days of such notice may arrange the sale of such property and apply the proceeds to the amount owed to Sotheby's;

    (h) resell the Lot by auction or private sale, with estimates and reserves at Sotheby's discretion. In the event such resale is for less than the Purchase Price and Buyer's Expenses for that Lot, the Buyer will remain liable for the shortfall together with all costs incurred in such resale;

    (i) commence legal proceedings to recover the Purchase Price and Buyer's Expenses for that Lot, together with interest and the costs of such proceedings on a full indemnity basis; or

    (j) release the name and address of the Buyer to the Seller to enable the Seller to commence legal proceedings to recover the amounts due and legal costs. Sotheby's will take reasonable steps to notify the Buyer prior to releasing such details to the Seller.

    10. Transport and Shipping
    (a) As stated in Condition 8 above, you will be emailed the Buyer's Shipping Quote upon request. Once you have accepted the Buyer's Shipping Quote and provided that the purchased Lot and the amount stated in the Buyer's Shipping Quote have each been paid for in full by the Buyer by the payment deadline stated, Sotheby's will ship the purchased Lot to the Buyer to the address provided by you on your Verified Account as soon as possible.

    (b) The Buyer is responsible for payment of the Buyer's Shipping Costs as specified in the Buyer's Shipping Quote. Although Sotheby's shall use reasonable efforts to take care when handling, packing and facilitating any shipment of a purchased Lot, Sotheby's is not responsible for any acts or omissions by any third party retained for these purposes including, without limitation, any packing, shipping or delivery of purchased Lots. Similarly, where Sotheby's may suggest or recommend any third party handler, packer or carrier if so requested by a Buyer, you acknowledge and agree that Sotheby's does not accept liability for their acts or omission and you agree to release Sotheby's from any such liability.

    (c) Any Lot sold in an Online Only Auction may be affected by laws on exports from the country in which it is sold and the import restrictions of other countries. Many countries require a declaration of export for property leaving the country and/or an import declaration on entry of property into the country. Obtaining the necessary permits and/or licences may result in additional costs and subsequent delays. Local laws may prevent you from importing a Lot or may prevent you from selling a Lot in the country which you import into. It is the Buyer's sole responsibility to identify and obtain any necessary export, import, firearm, endangered species or other permit for the lot. Any symbols or notices in the sale catalogue reflect Sotheby's reasonable opinion at the time of cataloguing and offer Bidders general guidance only. For further guidance on export/import restrictions, please refer to the Guide to Buying in an Online Only Auction set out above.

    (d) Without prejudice to Conditions 3 and 4 above, Sotheby's and the Seller make no representations or warranties as to whether any lot is or is not subject to export or import restrictions or any embargoes. The denial of any permit or licence shall not justify cancellation or rescission of the sale contract or any delay in payment.

    (e) All items will be held by Sotheby's free of charge for up to 30 days from the date of the sale, after this date the following rates apply: Storage charge: HK$4001,800 per lot per month. To arrange shipping or collection, please contact: Sale Administrator / Shipping AdministratorPost Sales Services in the online catalogue. Lots will be released to you or your authorised representative when full and final payment has been received by Sotheby's, appropriate photographic identification has been made, and a release note has been provided by Sotheby's (open Monday to Friday 9:30am - 6pm).

    11. Cancellation of an Online Only Sale
    (a) If the Buyer is an Online Consumer and the Seller is an Online Trader, the Buyer may have the right to cancel the sale contract which exists directly between the Online Trader (as Seller) and the Online Consumer (as Buyer) during the Online Sale Cancellation Period for any reason provided that (i) the Online Consumer duly informs Sotheby's during the Online Cancellation Period of their intention to cancel the purchase of the Lot; and (ii) the Online Consumer returns the Lot to Sotheby's without undue delay and in any event not later than fourteen (14) calendar days from the day after the Online Consumer has communicated their intention to cancel the purchase of the Lot to Sotheby's.

    (f) To exercise the right to cancel the sale contract in relation to a Lot, the Online Consumer must inform Sotheby's (being the company within the Sotheby's Group and specified in the Online Sale Information which offers to sell the Lot either as agent for the Seller or as principal) of their decision to cancel the sale contract by a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or email). Alternatively, the Online Consumer may use the model cancellation form set out below. Provided that the Online Consumer sends the communication to inform the Online Trader of the cancellation prior to the end of the Online Sale Cancellation Period, the Online Consumer will be deemed to have cancelled the sales contract within the Online Sale Cancellation Period.

    (g) If the Online Consumer cancels the sales contract within the Online Sale Cancellation Period, Sotheby's will reimburse (without undue delay and in any event within fourteen (14) calendar days after receipt of the returned Lot from the Online Consumer within the time frame specified in Condition 11(a)(ii)) payments received by Sotheby's from the Online Consumer (including the Purchase Price and any Standard Online Delivery Costs). Sotheby's shall not process the reimbursement unless and until the Lot is returned to Sotheby's or you have supplied Sotheby's with evidence of having returned the Lot to us.

    (h) Sotheby's will make the reimbursement to the Online Consumer using the same method of payment as the Online Consumer used for the initial transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise. Sotheby's will not charge the Online Consumer any fee in connection with processing the reimbursement.

    (i) Sotheby's shall not reimburse the Online Consumer by the amount of any supplementary costs which arise if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by Sotheby's or any import duties we incur as a result of you returning the Lot to us. Sotheby's is entitled to deduct from the reimbursement the amount of any loss in value of the Lot which is caused as a result of unnecessary handling by you.


    12. Cancellation of Services
    (a) If the Buyer is an Online Consumer and the Seller is an Online Consumer, the Buyer shall not have the right to cancel the sale contract (in accordance with Condition 11 above). However, the Buyer shall be entitled to cancel the contract for any delivery services which Sotheby's agrees to provide to the Buyer in connection with your purchase of the Lot during the Services Online Sale Cancellation Period without giving any reason.

    (b) As a Buyer in an Online Auction, you request Sotheby's immediately to begin performance of the delivery services during the Online Services Cancellation Period. If you subsequently decide to exercise your right to cancel the provision of services (in accordance with Condition 12(a) above) during the Online Services Cancellation Period, you shall pay to Sotheby's an amount which is in proportion to the value of the services that have been performed by the time you exercise your cancellation right. Sotheby's will make any reimbursement due to you without undue delay and in any event, not later than fourteen (14) days after the date on which we are informed about your decision to cancel the services. Sotheby's will make the reimbursement to the Online Consumer using the same method of payment as the Online Consumer used for the initial transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise. Sotheby's will not charge the Online Consumer any fee in connection with processing the reimbursement.

    (c) To exercise the right to cancel the contract in for delivery services in relation to a purchased Lot, the Online Consumer must inform Sotheby's of their decision to cancel the provision of services by a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or email). Alternatively, the Online Consumer may use the model cancellation form set out below. Provided that the Online Consumer sends the communication to inform the Online Trader of the cancellation prior to the end of the Online Services Cancellation Period, the Online Consumer will be deemed to have cancelled the sales contract within the Online Services Cancellation Period.

    SOTHEBY'S AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEE FOR ANY PROPERTY (EXCEPT JEWELLERY TO WHICH THE AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEES SET OUT BELOW APPLY)

    If Sotheby's sells an item which subsequently is shown to be a "counterfeit", subject to the terms below Sotheby's will set aside the sale and refund to the Buyer the total amount paid by the Buyer to Sotheby's for the item, in the currency of the original sale.

    For these purposes, "counterfeit" means a lot that in Sotheby's reasonable opinion is an imitation created to deceive as to authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source, where the correct description of such matters is not reflected by the description in the catalogue (taking into account any Glossary of Terms). No lot shall be considered a counterfeit by reason only of any damage and/or restoration and/or modification work of any kind (including repainting or over-painting).

    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 to use; or likely to have caused damage to the lot or likely (in Sotheby's reasonable opinion) to have caused loss of value to the lot; or

    (iii) there has been no material loss in value of the lot from its value had it been in accordance with its description.

    This Guarantee is provided for a period of five (5) years after the date of the relevant auction, is solely for the benefit of the Buyer and may not be transferred to any third party. To be able to claim under this Guarantee, the Buyer must:-

    (i) notify Sotheby's in writing within three (3) months of receiving any information that causes the Buyer to question the authenticity or attribution of the item, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons why it is thought to be counterfeit; and

    (ii) return the item to Sotheby's in the same condition as at the date of sale to the Buyer and be able to transfer good title in the item, free from any third party claims arising after the date of the sale.

    Sotheby's has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Sotheby's may require the Buyer to obtain at the Buyer's cost the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the field, mutually acceptable to Sotheby's and the Buyer. Sotheby's 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 Sotheby's 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.

    SOTHEBY'S AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEE FOR JEWELLERY

    If Sotheby's sells any gemstone or pearls which the Buyer subsequently shows to Sotheby's reasonable satisfaction not to be genuine or of natural origin, subject to the terms below Sotheby's will set aside the sale and refund to the Buyer the total amount paid by the Buyer to Sotheby's for such gemstones or pearls, in the currency of the original sale.

    This Guarantee is provided for a period of twenty one (21) days after the date of the relevant auction, is solely for the benefit of the Buyer and may not be transferred to any third party. To be able to claim under this Guarantee, the Buyer must:-

    (i) notify Sotheby's in writing within such 21 day period of the reasons for not believing the gemstones or pearls to be genuine or of natural origin, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased; and

    (ii) return the item to Sotheby's in the same condition as at the date of sale to the Buyer and be able to transfer good title in the item, free from any third party claims arising after the date of the sale.

    Sotheby's has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Sotheby's may require the Buyer to obtain at the Buyer's cost the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the field, mutually acceptable to Sotheby's and the Buyer. Sotheby's 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 Sotheby's 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.
