General terms and conditions

• TAJAN is an auction house specialised in moveable property governed byFrench Act no. 2000-642 of July 10th 2000.TAJAN acts as the seller's agent. The auctioneer is not a party to the saleagreement, which is solely binding on the seller and the successful bidder.

GENERAL TERMS

These general terms and conditions of sale, the sale and all matters relating thereto are governed by French law; the sellers, buyers and their agents accept that the courts of Paris (France) alone shall have jurisdiction over any legal action. These general terms and conditions are independent. Purchases must be made in cash and prices are stated in euros (€).

WARRANTIES

The seller warrants to TAJAN and to the buyer that he/she is the undisputed owner of the items offered for sale or that he/she has been authorised by the undisputed owner, that the said items are not encumbered by any claim, dispute, attachment, reservation or pledge and that he/she can legally transfer ownership of these items.

The information included in the catalogue is prepared by TAJAN with the assistance of the Expert, if necessary, with the care required for public auctions, subject to the notices, declarations and amendments announced upon presentation of the item and noted in the record of sale. This information, including the dimensions set out in the catalogue, is provided to help the potential buyer inspect items and must be assessed personally by him/her.
If no information on restoration, an accident, retouching or any other incident is provided in the catalogue, the condition reports or labels or during a verbal announcement, this does not mean that the item is void of defects.
Inasmuch as buyers are given the opportunity to examine works displayed prior to the sale, no claim may be made after the sale is complete.
Buyers may obtain a condition report on items included in the catalogue that are estimated at more than €1000 upon request. The information contained in such reports is provided free of charge and solely to serve as an indication.
It shall by no means incur the liability of TAJAN. In the event of a dispute concerning inter alia the authenticity or origin of items sold, TAJAN is bound by a best endeavours obligation; its liability may only be incurred if evidence is provided that it committed a wrongdoing.

ESTIMATES AND RESERVE PRICES

The estimated sale price appears beside each lot included in the catalogue.
It does not include the buyer's premium or VAT. The reserve price is the minimum confidential price agreed with the seller. If the reserve price is not met, the item will not be sold. The reserve price may not exceed the lowest estimate set out in the catalogue or announced publicly by the accredited auctioneer and noted in the auction house's files.
If no reserve price is set, TAJAN shall not incur any liability vis-à-vis the seller if the item concerned is sold at a price lower than the lowest estimate published in the sale catalogue.

BIDS

All individuals who register with Tajan shall have the right to access and rectify the personal data they provide to Tajan in accordance with the French Data Protection Act of 6 January 1978, as amended by the Act of 6 August 2004. Auctions will be carried out following the order of the lot numbers as they appear in the catalogue. Tajan is free to set the increment of each bid and all bidders must adhere to this process. The highest and last bidder will be the successful bidder. In the event of a dispute during the bidding process, that is, if two or more bidders simultaneously place the same bid, either orally or by a signal, and each claim the item concerned when the auctioneer has declared the item "sold", the said item will be re-auctioned immediately at the price offered by the bidders and all those present may take part in this second auction.
Any individual who makes a bid during the sale shall be deemed to be doing so in his/her own name; he/she shall assume full responsibility for his/her bid, unless he/she registered him/herself as an agent with Tajan and stipulated that the bid was being made for a designated third party. In the event the seller sets a reserve price, Tajan reserves the right to propose
bids on the seller's behalf until such time as the reserve is met.

ABSENTEE BID FORMS AND TELEPHONE BIDS

For significant purchases, a buyer may be asked to provide a bank letter of credit. If several absentee bid forms are submitted for the same item, the first order received will take priority. Telephone bids may be placed by clients who cannot attend the auction. Telephone bidding can only be arranged for lots with sale estimates over €400.
This is a service graciously provided free of charge to the client. TAJAN, its employees, agents and representatives shall not incur any liability in the event of an error or omission in the execution of orders received or the non execution of orders.
