3. DUTIES OF THE BIDDER AND H&H IN RESPECT OF ITEMS FOR SALE
3.1. H&H's knowledge in relation to each Lot is limited, and is largely dependent on information provided to it by the Seller. H&H is not able to and does not carry out exhaustive due diligence on each Lot. Bidders agree, acknowledge, and accept these facts, and further accept responsibility for carrying out their own investigations to satisfy themselves as to the Lots in which they may be interested.
3.2. 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 the sale in the relevant Auction, without any representation, warranty, and/or assumption of liability of any kind as to their condition by H&H. Any reference to the condition of a Lot by H&H will not amount to a full description of its condition, and the absence of any reference to the condition of a Lot does not imply that the Lot is free from faults or imperfections. The images of any Lot provided by H&H may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the Lot. In particular, the images may represent colours and shades which are different to the Lot's actual colour and shades. None of H&H's representations, warranties, descriptions, and/or statements as to a Lot shall be an alternative to you taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the Lot.
4. BIDDING IN AN AUCTION
4.1. Connectivity and Technical Issues:
(a) Technical problems beyond H&H's reasonable control (including internet, firewall, website, and connectivity issues) may create difficulties including for accessing the Auction and maintaining continuity of such access.

4.2. H&H's Discretion in relation to Bidding / Purchasing:
(a) H&H reserves the right in its absolute discretion at any time:-

(ii) to reject and/or deny your access to any Auction;
(iii) to reject, revoke, and/or refuse to accept any bid, and/or to cancel any bid even if it has been previously accepted;
(iv) to withdraw any Lot or cancel the Auction whether prior to or during the Auction and H&H shall have no liability whatsoever in connection with such withdrawal or cancellation;
(v) to divide or combine any Lots; and
(vi) in the case of error or dispute, to continue the bidding, determine the successful Buyer, cancel the sale of the Lot, or re-offer and re-sell any Lot. If any dispute relating to bidding arises during and/or after the sale, H&H's decision in the exercise of this option is final and H&H accepts no liability for any loss and/or damage in connection and/or arising out of this regard.
4.3. Bidding Process:
(a) Bidding opens at a specified amount and escalates in bid increments which shall be subject to H&H's sole discretion;
(b) If a bid is successfully submitted on a Lot in an Auction from a Bidder's account, computer, and/or mobile device, the Bidder irrevocably agrees to pay the amounts identified in Clause 5.2 below, in full;
(c) H&H is not responsible for any errors that the Bidder makes in bidding on a Lot;
(d) Unless H&H decides to exercise its discretion in accordance with Clause 4.2 above, the Bidder with the highest bid when the Lot closes (i.e. the Hammer Price) shall be the successful Buyer. This means that a contract for sale has been formed between H&H and the Buyer when the Lot closes.

5.1. If you are a successful Buyer of a Lot:-
(a) you will receive from H&H a purchase invoice for its Purchase Price as soon as reasonably practical; and
