PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION. THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION THAT REQUIRES YOU TO RESOLVE DISPUTES ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS BY JUDGES, RATHER THAN BY JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.
The T2 Service provides a venue for Users to place for sale at auction, bid on, and purchase musical instruments, bows, and other specialty items and combinations of such items (“Lot(s)”) through T2’s online auction services (the “Auction”). As used in this Agreement, any User who places a Lot for sale through the Auction is referred to as a “Seller”; any User who bids on a Lot through the Auction is referred to as a “Bidder”; and any User who purchases a Lot through the Auction is referred to as the “Buyer.”
You may use the Service only if you can form a binding contract with T2, and only in compliance with this Agreement and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. Any use or access to the Service by anyone under 18 is strictly prohibited and in violation of this Agreement. The Service is not available to any Users previously removed from the Service by T2.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you are hereby granted a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, freely revocable license to use the Service as permitted by the features of the Service. T2 reserves all rights not expressly granted herein in the Service and the T2 Content (as defined below). T2 may terminate this license at any time for any reason or no reason
You may not participate in any Auction unless you register with the Service in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Section. If you would like to be a Bidder or Buyer, you may register for the Service by filling out our online form located on the Service (T2-auctions.com/auctions/register-to-bid/) or by calling us at the number provided on the Service (+1 212 307 7224 or +44 (0) 20 7354 5763), or through such other method as we may provide from time to time. In order to place any Lots for auction through the Service and become a Seller, you must first enter into a separate written consignment agreement with T2 or its affiliated entity, Tarisio Auctions LLC, governing the applicable Lots (each, a “Consignment Agreement”). T2 has no obligation to enter into any Consignment Agreement with any User. You acknowledge and agree that you may be required to pay a fee in order to register for the Service (“Registration Fee”), and you agree to pay any such Registration Fee. T2 may reject the registration of any User in its sole discretion and at any time. You further acknowledge that pre-approval by T2 may be required in order to bid on certain Lots, and that such pre-approval may be withheld by T2 for any reason, in its sole discretion.
Your T2 account gives you access to the services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion. We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users. If you open a T2 account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (i) “you” includes you and that entity, and (ii) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement, and that you agree to this Agreement on the entity’s behalf. You may never use another User’s account without permission. When creating your account or registering to bid or submitting any request for pre-approval, you must provide accurate, current, and complete information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. You must notify T2 immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. T2 will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account. You may control your Bidder profile and how you interact with the Service by clicking on the “Your Account Info” link on the Service and by changing the settings in your Profile Page. By providing T2 your email address you consent to our using the email address to send you Service-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may also use your email address to send you other messages, such as changes to features of the Service and special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out or change your preferences in your Profile Page. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding sale notices, updates or offers.
You agree not to engage in any of the following prohibited activities in connection with the Service: (i) copying, distributing, or disclosing any part of the Service in any medium, including without limitation by any automated or non-automated “scraping”; (ii) using any automated system, including without limitation “robots,” “spiders,” “offline readers,” etc., to access the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the T2 servers than a human can reasonably produce in the same period of time by using a conventional on-line web browser; (iii) transmitting spam, chain letters, or other unsolicited email; (iv) attempting to interfere with, compromise the system integrity or security or decipher any transmissions to or from the servers running the Service; (v) taking any action that imposes, or may impose at our sole discretion an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; (vi) uploading invalid data, viruses, worms, or other software agents through the Service; (vii) collecting or harvesting any personally identifiable information, including account names, from the Service; (viii) using the Service for any commercial solicitation purposes; (ix) impersonating another person or otherwise misrepresenting your affiliation with a person or entity, conducting fraud, hiding or attempting to hide your identity; (x) interfering with the proper working of the Service; (xi) accessing any content on the Service through any technology or means other than those provided or authorized by the Service; or (xii) bypassing the measures we may use to prevent or restrict access to the Service, including without limitation features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content or enforce limitations on use of the Service or the content therein.
Accessing the audiovisual content available on the Service for any purpose or in any manner other than Streaming (as defined below) is expressly prohibited. “Streaming” means a contemporaneous digital transmission of an audiovisual work via the Internet from the T2 Service to a User’s device in such a manner that the data is intended for real-time viewing and not intended to be copied, stored, permanently downloaded, or redistributed by the User.
We may, without prior notice, change the Service; stop providing the Service or features of the Service, to you or to Users generally; or create usage limits for the Service. We may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the Service without notice and liability for any reason, including if in our sole determination you violate any provision of this Agreement, or for no reason. Upon termination for any reason or no reason, you continue to be bound by this Agreement.
If and to the extent the Service should at any time permit any form of interaction with other Users, you will remain solely responsible for your interactions with other T2 Users. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other Users. T2 shall have no liability for your interactions with other Users, or for any User’s action or inaction.
The terms and conditions of this Agreement expressly apply to and govern the sale, bidding on, and purchase of all Lots offered through the Auction. By using the Auction services in any manner, including without limitation selling, bidding on, or purchasing any Lot at the Auction, or acting as an agent for a Seller or Buyer, you expressly agree to the applicable terms and conditions of these “Auction Terms,” in addition to the other applicable terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Bids and Bidding
To place a bid through the Auction, you must follow the instructions located on the Service (T2-auctions.com/buyers-sellers/buyers/bidding/). All bids for Lots being sold in the United States must be stated in US Dollars. All bids for Lots being sold in the United Kingdom must be stated in Pounds Sterling. Bidding for each Lot will often begin at an amount several bidding increments below the low pre-sale estimate. Certain Lots may be offered with a “Buy Now” bid option, which will be available until the normal bidding period opens (or if earlier, the date another buyer chooses the “Buy Now” option for that lot). By placing any bid on a Lot, you acknowledge and agree that you are committing to a legally binding and irrevocable offer to purchase the Lot at any price up to and including your highest bid amount, including any maximum or proxy bid (as described on the Service (T2-auctions.com/buyers-sellers/buyers/bidding/)). By choosing the “Buy Now” bid option, you acknowledge and agree that you are committing to a legally binding and irrevocable offer to purchase the Lot at the “Buy Now” price. Subject to the “Reserves” section below, if you place the highest bid for a Lot as determined by T2 at the close of Auction (or if you choose the “Buy Now” bid option), your bid will be deemed accepted, and you will be obligated to purchase the Lot at the bid price (or the “Buy Now” price, as applicable) and pay any applicable fees and taxes as set forth in this Agreement. Failure to complete the transaction after acceptance of your bid is a breach of this Agreement and is legally actionable by T2. All bid retractions require the prior written consent of T2. T2 may reject any bid at its sole discretion. If you are a Seller or acting on behalf of a Seller, then you and any agents acting on your behalf are expressly prohibited from bidding on any Lots provided to T2 or the Auction by or on behalf of that Seller. If you or your agent bid on a Lot in violation of the foregoing and are the highest bidder for the Lot, you will pay us the Seller’s Commission described in the “Seller’s Commission and Payments” Section below, and the Buyer’s Premium (as defined in the “Auction Payments” Section below), and you or your agent shall not be entitled to any of the representations, warranties, or other rights or benefits provided by us to any Buyers under this Agreement.
High and low pre-sale estimates for each Lot are set forth on the applicable Consignment Agreement. You agree that any such pre-sale estimate (or any other estimate, whether communicated by us to you or included in any Internet posting or printed or electronic auction catalogue or other publication) does not constitute (i) an appraisal of the actual or likely sale value of a Lot, (ii) a commitment as to the correct price (or price range) at which a Lot should be offered for sale, or (iii) a guarantee of the sale price of that Lot. You acknowledge and agree that we may, as experts in our field, revise estimates in our sole discretion in order to optimize the performance of the Lot at the Auction. Please note that we will not change the Reserve without the applicable Seller’s agreement.
Lots to be sold through the Auction will consist of one (1) or more items. Some of the Lots are offered for sale subject to the “Reserve.” The “Reserve” is a confidential minimum valuation agreed upon by the Seller of such Lot and T2 under a Consignment Agreement, below which T2 is not obligated to sell such Lot. In no cases will the Reserve be greater than the low pre-sale estimate for the Lot provided on the Service. T2 may choose to implement any such Reserve by placing bids up to the amount of the Reserve. If bidding does not reach a Lot’s Reserve at the close of the Auction, T2 may, at its sole discretion, (i) sell the Lot to the highest bidder at his or her highest bid amount, even if the bid amount is below the applicable Reserve (without limiting T2’s payment obligations in the Consignment Agreement), or (ii) refuse to sell the Lot. T2 may make downward adjustments to a Lot’s Reserve upon oral agreement with, or instruction from, the applicable Seller.
Each Seller expressly acknowledges and agrees that, as part of our sales and marketing activities, we may hold pre-sale exhibitions and/or present Lots to potentially interested parties for viewing and, where applicable, trial. For such purposes, we may also transport Lots to locations outside our premises. The locations and times of pre-sale exhibitions may be listed on the Service at (T2-auctions.com). Anyone interested in bidding is encouraged to visit the pre-auction exhibitions. You agree to exercise due care in handling any Lot at a viewing.
Buyer’s Auction Payments
The Buyer must make full payment of the purchase price of any Lot to T2, plus any applicable sales taxes and all charges associated with shipping (including shipping insurance), and the Buyer’s Premium (hereinafter defined), no later than seven (7) working days after the close of bidding. Without further notification to the Buyer, T2 may place charges on the Buyer’s credit card supplied at the time of registration for the lesser of (i) the total billable amount (including purchase price, Buyer’s Premium, and associated charges), or (ii) $5,000, if an equal or greater amount has not been paid to T2 within ten (10) working days after the close of bidding. For each Lot purchased, the Buyer shall pay to T2 a “Buyer’s Premium” equal to twenty percent (20%) of the total purchase price. In the event that the Buyer placed both the first and last bids on the Lot (or the only bid, if only one (1) bid was placed, or if the “Buy Now” option was used), then the Buyer’s Premium shall be reduced by two percent (2%). For example, in such instance, the Buyer shall pay to T2 a Buyer’s Premium equal to eighteen percent (18%) of the total purchase price.
After the close of bidding, T2 will attempt to notify (i) each winning bidder and (ii) each Buyer having chosen the “Buy Now” bid option, via email or telephone using the contact information provided by the winning bidder/Buyer. You are responsible for providing T2 with accurate and current contact information. Payment will be accepted in any of the following methods: personal check, company check, cashier’s check, money order, wire transfer, credit card, or cash. Payments made by credit card will be assessed a processing fee of three percent (3%) of the charged amount. All mailed payments and notices should be sent to T2 Auctions LLC, 244-250 West 54th, New York, NY 10019. Payments may also be made in person at T2’s offices, or, at T2’s discretion, by telephone. No Lot will be released and no title to any Lot will be transferred to any Buyer until full payment is received by T2. T2 reserves the right to hold Lots purchased by personal check or company check until such check has cleared in full. T2 may impose, and Buyer agrees to pay, a monthly interest charge of three percent (3%) of the total purchase price of any Lot (or the highest rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is less) not paid by the Buyer within fifteen (15) days after the date of sale.
T2 may withdraw any Lot from any Auction at any time and for any reason we consider appropriate, if, for example, we have concerns regarding the provenance, title, authenticity, attribution, composition, age, condition, value or marketability of that Lot, or more generally, if we believe the sale of that Lot would be improper. With T2’s approval, a Seller may withdraw any Lot from any Auction prior to the initial publication of the applicable sale and, in such event, the Seller shall pay us twenty five percent (25%) of the average of the high and low pre-sale estimates for such Lot that are set forth on the applicable Consignment Agreement, plus our charges for any repairs made to the Lot, if applicable, and an insurance fee equal to one percent (1%) of the average of the high and low estimates for the Lot. If a Seller withdraws a Lot, that Lot will be returned to the Seller (in accordance with the “Unsold Lots” Section below) at the Seller’s expense and risk and following our receipt of all monies due to us in accordance with this Agreement.
Shipping/Pickup for Buyers
Upon T2’s receipt of full payment for a Lot from the Buyer, T2 will arrange for the packaging and shipping of the Lot in accordance with instructions provided by the Buyer with respect to shipping options T2 may propose (T2 also reserves the right not to ship a Lot for any reason). Where the Lot is not to be shipped to the Buyer, the Buyer shall arrange for the Lot to be picked up from T2’s offices at 244-250 West 54th, New York, NY 10019 after making full payment. T2 reserves the right to require, from the person picking up a Lot, appropriate identifying documentation and, where applicable, advance written authorization which T2 can reasonably confirm to be from the Buyer. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE WILL T2 BE RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGE TO LOTS INCURRED DURING SHIPMENT TO BUYER.
Storage for Buyer
The Buyer agrees to pay a monthly storage fee of 1.5% of the purchase price of any Lot or portion of a Lot which has not been shipped to or picked up by the Buyer within fourteen (14) days after the close of the applicable Auction. T2 shall not be responsible for any loss or damage to property left on its premises for more than fourteen (14) days after the close of the Auction.
If the highest bidder (or the Buyer pursuant to a Buy Now option) on a Lot does not pay T2 in full for such Lot in accordance with this Agreement (a “Defaulting Bidder”), T2 may attempt to sell such Lot to another purchaser, whether at a future auction or in a private sale, or T2 may choose to return the Lot to the seller. In the event of a new sale, the Defaulting Bidder shall remain responsible for, and shall pay to T2, all deficiencies between the Defaulting Bidder’s purchase price and the new sale price received by T2 for such Lot, plus all “Damages” (as defined below). If T2 informs the Defaulting Bidder that the Lot is being returned to the Seller, the Defaulting Bidder shall in any event immediately pay to T2 the Damages. The term “Damages” shall be the sum of all legally enforceable damages resulting from the Defaulting Bidder’s default, including without limitation the Buyer’s Premium on the intended sale to the Defaulting Bidder, T2’s costs and expenses in connection with the attempted sale (and if applicable, re-sale) of the Lot, or its return to the Seller, and T2’s and the Seller’s respective legal fees and costs. T2 shall be entitled to immediate payment from the Defaulting Bidder, including through injunctive relief or any other form of specific performance or interim or equitable relief available in the jurisdictions where Defaulting Bidder resides or holds assets, of the amounts owed to T2 by the Defaulting Bidder.
Photographs and Reproductions
You (whether a Seller, Buyer, or otherwise) hereby authorize T2 to photograph, film, tape, digitally record, or otherwise create audio and video recordings, still images and/or textual descriptions, testimonials, and statements (which may include, without limitation, information concerning the provenance, authenticity, attribution, age, composition and/or condition of any Lots) relating to any Lots or other items offered or purchased by you through or in connection with any Auction (hereinafter the “Reproductions and Materials”), without compensation or further permission. You further authorize T2, and its licensees, directors, officers, employees, contractors, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Associated Parties”) to edit, modify, adapt and change the Reproductions and Materials at their sole discretion, and to incorporate the Reproductions and Materials into print publications, electronic publications, software, video or sound recordings, broadcasts, programs, or any other media, whether now known or hereafter developed (“Publications”). You hereby authorize, for worldwide commercial and non-commercial purposes, T2 to use, reproduce, distribute, license to others, and otherwise exploit all intellectual property rights in and to the Reproductions and Materials and the Publications in any manner of media whatsoever now or hereafter known. You relinquish all right, title and interest you may have in any Reproductions and Materials or the Publications as modified or unmodified, and you hereby assign all right, title and interest you may have in any Reproductions and Materials or the Publications to T2. You further hereby irrevocably agree that you will not assert or maintain against T2, or the Associated Parties any claim, action, suit or demand of any kind or nature, including, but not limited to, those grounded upon infringement, invasion of privacy, right to publicity, defamation, libel or slander in connection with the Reproductions and Materials or the Publications or the exercise of the rights granted herein. You represent and warrant that you control all of the necessary rights (or have obtained the required permissions) in order to grant the rights and releases contained herein and that you have the authority to grant such rights and releases, and that there is no third-party obligation that interferes or prevents you from granting the rights and releases specified herein. If you are a Seller, you further represent and warrant that there are no restrictions on our right to photograph any Lots you placed with our Service or create other Reproductions and Materials and to reproduce, publish, or distribute any Reproductions and Materials in any manner in connection with the performance of this Agreement.
By using the Service as a Seller, you expressly agree to the terms and conditions of these “Sellers’ Terms” in addition to all other terms and conditions of this Agreement, with respect to all Lots that are subject to any Consignment Agreement entered into between you and T2 (or between you and T2’s affiliated entity, Tarisio Auctions LLC).
Ownership of Lots. You represent and warrant that you have all necessary rights to provide all such Lots to T2 and the Service and to sell such Lots and items through the Auction. You will promptly provide us with documentary evidence and/or a formal opinion of recognized legal counsel as reasonably requested by us to verify your ownership of a Lot, your right to sell the Lot in accordance with this Agreement, and your compliance with applicable laws and regulations regarding such Lot. You will fully cooperate with us to the extent any additional documentation is required from you to effect a transfer of ownership to a Buyer of any such Lot. You will fully and promptly cooperate with us to the extent any inquiries or claims are threatened or asserted regarding any of your representations above, including without limitation any commitments we make in reliance upon your representations.
No Publicity. For as long as a Lot remains in our possession under this Agreement, you will not, without our written consent, issue any press releases, advertisements or other notices, through any media whatsoever, regarding the Lot or its sale.
Repairs to Lots. We may, at your expense, and as we reasonably consider necessary, make small repairs to Lots, such as rehairs, small gluings, and/or string replacement.
No Guarantees. You recognize and accept that we routinely and contemporaneously offer properties for sale, both through the Auction and privately, which could be considered competitive with one or more of your Lots, and we do not promise that any Lot will be effectively marketed or sold.
Seller’s Commission and Payment. In the event your Lot is sold through the Service or otherwise by T2, you agree to pay us the commission set forth in the applicable Consignment Agreement (“Seller’s Commission”). The Seller’s Commission becomes due and payable to us on date of the sale of the Lot. We will deduct the Seller’s Commission and any other amounts due to us from the sale proceeds of such Lot at the same time as we remit payment to you in respect of the balance of the sale proceeds, and we will pay you the balance on or before the later of (i) thirty (30) days from the closing of the applicable Auction and (ii) the tenth (10th) day following our receipt of full payment from the Buyer. The Seller’s Commission and all other amounts payable under this Agreement are exclusive of any applicable sales or value added tax which shall be paid at the same time as payment of the Seller’s Commission or such other sums. You acknowledge that we may charge the Buyer of each Lot a Buyer’s Premium as specified in the “Buyer’s Auction Payments” Section above. We may, without further notice to you and without any additional cost to you, pay on our own behalf any third party commissions that we may determine to be required in connection with the sale of any Lot. If a Buyer fails to pay us or forfeits a bid, we may choose (but we are not obliged) to (a) enforce payment by the Buyer, to (b) sell the Lot to the next highest bidder, or (c) cancel the sale. With respect to a Lot that thereby remains unsold, we may: (x) make a private sale of the Lot at a purchase price that is no less than its Reserve, if any; (y) continue to keep the Lot under this Agreement and offer it for sale at our next Auction; or (z) return the Lot to you at your expense and risk (provided that if we paid you a portion of the sales price of the defaulted or forfeited sale, you shall promptly return such proceeds to us prior to our returning the Lot to you) in accordance with the “Unsold Lots” Section below.
Insuring your property. We will insure each Lot under our general insurance for an amount equal to the average of the high and low pre-sale estimates for such Lot that are set forth on the applicable Consignment Agreement. We will insure each Lot until the earlier of (i) the date we receive payment in full for a sold Lot, or (b) the date an unsold Lot leaves our premises in accordance with the “Unsold Lots” Section below. Our general insurance is subject to standard exclusions contained in our policy, including, for example, fraud, intentional concealment, misrepresentation of material facts, contraband, government seizure, nuclear hazard, war and military action. Without limitation to the foregoing, we cannot accept any responsibility for damage caused by woodworm, changes in atmospheric conditions or acts of terrorism.
Unsold Lots. With respect to unsold Lots, you shall, within fourteen (14) days of any notice therefor from us, arrange for pickup at our premises (244-250 West 54th, New York, NY 10019 during our ordinary business hours, or you shall instruct us with shipping details; in either case within that fourteen (14) day period, you shall also pay us any sums owing to us pursuant to this Agreement. If you fail to arrange for pickup or instruct us with shipping details (together with payment of amounts owing to us) within such fourteen (14) day period, we shall, on written notice to you, be entitled to charge you a monthly storage fee of one and one-half percent (1.5%) of the average of the high and low pre-sale estimates for the Lot (or if higher, USD $50.00 per Lot per month) beyond such fourteen (14) day period. If any Lot remains uncollected beyond thirty (30) days from our notice as provided above, we may, on written notice to you, place the Lot in a third-party storage facility and/or offer the Lot for sale at auction (through us or any other seller) without regard to the Reserve, if any. Any amounts owing to us by you (including insurance and packing fees) shall be paid in full prior to us releasing a Lot for pickup or shipment. For Lots being picked up at our premises, you will bring appropriate identification or, as applicable, provide advance copies of any written instructions for a third party to retrieve a Lot. In no event will we be liable for any of your property damaged or lost in transit.
You acknowledge and agree that you alone are responsible for complying with any export, import, and other laws, rules, or regulations in connection with offering for sale, selling, purchasing, importing, or exporting any Lots in connection with the Service, and you will obtain any licenses necessary to sell, purchase, export, and import any items provided or purchased by you. As an exception to the foregoing, T2 shall handle any such compliance requirements, and obtaining necessary licenses, resulting from T2’s decision to transport a Lot for viewing or sale outside the country in which the Lot was consigned to T2. You will in any event pay any fees, duties and taxes related to all of the foregoing compliance and license requirements. T2 reserves the right not to ship endangered species materials abroad even if the items in question are over one hundred (100) years old unless a CITES exemption permit has been obtained. T2 also reserves the right to refuse to sell or ship any items (purchased or otherwise) if T2 believes, in its sole discretion, that selling or shipping such items would be in violation of any applicable laws, rules, or regulations.
You acknowledge that T2 operates as a wholesale marketplace, and with respect to any Lot offered at auction, T2 makes no warranties or representations regarding provenance, authenticity, title, attribution, condition, value, composition or marketability. If T2 indicates that a Lot is “labeled” or “stamped” an author, this is not a guarantee or representation of authorship, and Buyer shall have no right to contest the authenticity of such Lot.
