You may also make a request on behalf of your minor child.  You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.  The request must:

Effective Date: 8/17/2020
Last Revised: 

Acker, Merrall & Condit Company and its affiliates, including, without limitation, Acker Auction, Inc., Acker, Merrall & Condit (Asia) Ltd, Acker London Ltd., Acker Auction DE, LLC and The Wine Workshop LLC (collectively, “Acker”, “we”, “us” or “our”) advertises, promotes, sells and auctions wine, spirits and other alcoholic beverages, and related products (collectively, “Products”) and provides other information and news related to Products, in a variety of media (collectively with Products, the “Products & Services”).  We provide the Products & Services through a variety of methods, including, but not limited to, auctions, consignments, wine seminars, tastings and other events, and general purchases and interactions via our different social media and digital platforms (collectively, the “Offerings”).

Please note that we use CCTV video at our various premises for security reasons.  As such, your physical presence at any of our premises may result in your image being recorded and collected by Acker.  We retain such video recordings no longer than necessary in view of the purpose for which they were collected.

We consider the privacy of your data and information, whether corporate or personal, to be of paramount importance.  Information we gather from you as a customer not only enables the transactions and interactions between us, but also helps us continually improve your experience with us and keep you informed of upcoming auctions, events and other services that might interest you.  This document constitutes a notice (the “Policy”) from Acker to all customers or other individuals (“customer” or “you”) whose personal data is provided to or collected by us, by or through any of our Offerings, and which is subject to the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") (Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of April 27, 2016).  We will treat personal data which is not subject to the GDPR or the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 in the same manner as described in this Policy.

Throughout this Policy, the expression “personal data” refers to any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, as defined by the GDPR.  This Policy aims to inform you of the conditions under which your personal data is collected and processed by us and the rights that you have regarding this data.  We will not sell, share, or rent your personal data to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this Policy.

1.	PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND PROCESS.
In the course of our in-person interactions with you, and via our website (the “Website”) and mobile application (collectively with Website, the “Digital Platforms”), we collect the following personal data because it is necessary for the provision of our services in accordance with our Website and Mobile App Terms of Use.

(a)	Information Automatically Collected.
Generally:
When you visit our Website (regardless of whether you create a user profile), the following information about your visit is automatically collected by us, as it is sent by your browser when you access any webpage:

•	your computer’s or mobile device’s operating system;

•	the application or software that you used to access our Website;

•	the time you accessed our Website;

•	your browser type, language configuration, clicks and page views;

•	the terminal with which you accessed our Website; and

•	the websites you visited before accessing our Website.

This information is logged automatically and is stored for 7 years, and in any case, for no longer than necessary in relation to the purpose for which it is being processed.  The aim of this automatic collection and processing is to obtain visit statistics in order to improve our Website and your experience as a customer.  In particular, we use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Website and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.  We may use “clear GIFs” (also known as “web beacons” or “pixel tags”) or similar technologies, in the Website and/or in our communications with you, to enable us to evaluate Website usage information about visitors to our Website, target campaigns, upgrade visitor information and know whether you have visited a web page or received a message.  A clear GIF is typically a one-pixel transparent image (although it can be a visible image as well), located on a web page or in an e-mail or other type of message, which is retrieved from a remote site on the Internet thus enabling the verification of an individual’s viewing or receipt of a web page or message.  A clear GIF may enable us to relate your viewing or receipt of a web page or message to other information about you, including your personal information.

We offer sign-on services that allow you to use third party login credentials to access our Website.  You may choose to provide us with access to certain personal data stored by such third party websites.  The personal data we have access to varies by website and is controlled by your privacy settings on that website and your consent.  By associating an account managed by a third party with your Acker account and authorizing Acker to have access to this information, you agree that Acker may collect, use and store personal data from those websites in accordance with this Policy.

•	where you contest the accuracy of your personal data, you can request the restriction of the processing of your personal data for the period required to verify your claim;

•	where the processing is unlawful, you may choose to request the restriction of the use of your personal data instead of requesting its erasure;

•	if we no longer need your personal data for the purpose of the processing, but you require this data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or

•	where you objected to the processing of your personal data carried out in our legitimate interests, you may request the restriction of this processing while we investigate your claim.

6.	SECURITY.
We have implemented appropriate security measures in order to protect your personal data, both online and off-line.  These include firewalls, IP blacklisting, protections from brute force attacks, and other general security practices such as disabling ping-backs and track-backs.  We also utilize sophisticated third-party providers for secure server infrastructure, as well as other generally accepted physical safeguards.

7.	NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES.
We will update this Policy when necessary to reflect customer feedback, changes in our Products & Services, or legal changes.

(d) 州外运送。

i) 您须单独负责在纽约州以外但在美国境内运送的已购买的葡萄酒,并须负上遵守适用法律的所有义务。

ii) 受限于适用法律,应您的要求,PEP Logistics 可担任代理人代您安排合适的承运公司。曼哈顿区外的运送由您支付。所有透过PEP Logistics安排在美国境内的运送,会由PEP Logistics 纯綷担任您的代理人。承运公司在收到有关货物时,会以「离岸价」方式运送有关货物,损失或损坏风险会转移至纽约的您。运费必须由您预先缴付或到付。PEP Logistics亦可能会收取服务费。付运可于收取所有付款及资金存进AMC的账户后作出安排。买方应容许5个工作天以作美国境内付运的安排,及10个工作天以作美国境外及国际付运的安排, 美国境外及国际付运可能要求提供海关文件或特别路线安排。

iii) 经由任何承运公司付运已购买的葡萄酒而引起的任何损失或损毁以及有关风险将由买方及/或承运公司全部承担。AMC对您的货物在运输途中发生的任何变坏、损毁或损失,概不负责。

 (e) 所有权及税项

含酒精饮料的所有权及拥有权从AMC转移至纽约的您,而产品从纽约运往您选定的目的地之责任由您独自承担。您可在AMC位于曼哈顿区提取已购买的葡萄酒 (见上文第4(a) 条)。在受限于上文第4(c) 及 4(d) 条,您亦可安排独立运货。

i) 交付到获许可的州份。对于运往AMC领有牌照的(包括纽约州)或持有直接面向消费者运输许可的州份的订单,产品的所有权及拥有权会在纽约转移给您。AMC可安排付运,而销售及其他适用税项将根据目的地国家的要求征收。

ii) 交付到美国所有其他地点。含酒精饮料的所有权及拥有权会在纽约转移给您,而产品从纽约运往您选定的目的地之责任由您独自承担。您可在AMC位于纽约市区提取产品,或在受限于上文第4(c) 及 4(d) 条,您亦可独自安排运货。纽约州的销售税将适用于所有情况。由于AMC不允许将产品运送到其未持有直接面向消费者运输许可的州份,因此,尽管您可能需要任何其后州外的付运安排,产品亦只可在纽约运送给您或您的代理。

iii) 运送到美国境外。含酒精饮料的所有权会在纽约转移给您。如有关货物交由买方雇用或代理的货运代理商或国际承运人直接出口到美国境外,您将不用支付销售税。

如买方为持牌及/或已登记的经销商,并向AMC提供正确填写的转售证明书,可能免缴销售税。

一些司法管辖区亦可能会向入境的付运有关货物征收消费税。如有需要,AMC或PEP Logistics(作为您的代理人) 可向您收取有关消费税。

(iii) 我们对付运含酒精饮料的合法性不作出任何陈述。您有责任遵守有关付运的所有法律。PEP Logistics 或 AMC (如适用) 透过为您安排运送含酒精饮料向您提供服务,并为您担任代理人。透过使用PEP Logistics 或AMC提供的服务,您表示您就购买、运送及交付含酒精饮料有遵守当地及州份的法律。您进一步表示您已获得任何所需的许可、支付任何所需费用、并透过适当获许可的中介机构行事(如有需要),及您在法律上有权管有含酒精饮料,您在法律上有权收取订购的数量,并且您及接收含酒精饮料产品的人员至少年满21岁。


(d) 订单处理时间


订单一般在购买后五(5)个工作天内处理和付运。然而,付运可能因为各种因素而出现延误而需时更久。紧急订单 (例如:特别付运) 的要求必须以电话或电子邮件提出,且有待确认。此类要求可向AMC提出,而AMC将在适当情况下转交PEP Logistics处理。


5. 送货尝试


AMC将尝试交付获授权付运的已购物品一(1)次(运往AMC领有牌照的州份)。如任何此类订单被退回,AMC将联络您并通知您有关退回事宜,然而 AMC 保留把订购物品退回库存、扣除送货成本后把余款退回您账户的权利。如需就零售店购货作特别安排,请以电邮store@ackerwines.com联络AMC,或电邮至rarewine@ackerwines.com查询精品与罕有产品事宜。



透过一般承运商付运的货品(包括经由PEP Logistics作出安排的付运),一般会包括三(3)次送货尝试。如订单此后仍无法送达,将会被退回AMC。


6. 退货与取消


不论已购物件是否仍被AMC管有或正在运送给您,及不论AMC能否提供付运安排的协助,所有物件均以「现状」出售,且在您下单时已为最终决定。除非涉及重大付运或库存错误,而有关问题于九十(90)日内汇报,否则不得退货与取消;在此情况下,有关事宜将按个别情况考虑。


7. 酒瓶状况与价格差异


据AMC所知悉,所有葡萄酒在AMC管有期间均以妥善条件储存。每瓶葡萄酒在加入AMC的零售库存时,已进行了尽可能准确的检查和描述。然而,买家在购入较陈年和脆弱的葡萄酒时,必须对自然程度的耗损和一般状况给予适当宽容。除非另有所指,10年以下的葡萄酒可被视为状况良好。


8. 保险


AMC(在获授权与持有相关牌照的情况下)与PEP Logistics向与他们有付运安排的本地客户送货。AMC的保险承保在您的订单由一般承运公司持有时因破损或盗窃而产生的任何损失,不论运送安排是否经由AMC或透过PEP Logistics安排。保险并不承保因充公而引致的损失,或由于长时间离开冷藏环境或在不设冷藏的运送或未有采用合适隔热的运送而引致的极端高温或低温引发之损害。如您收到的已购买的货物在运送时破损,您必须在送货后的三(3)天内以书面通知 AMC。如付运货物未有送抵,您必须在预计送货日期后的三(3)天内以书面通知 AMC,让我们可处理您的申索。


9. 天气条款


如付运时的温度在华氏 80度以上或华氏 30度以下,AMC 保留拒绝付运葡萄酒的权利,除非您已书面同意承担所有因极端温度对付运产生的责任与损害风险。






美国拍卖销售条款

1. 买方协议。

在拍卖会竞投,即代表拍卖会竞投者(「竞投者」)同意本买方销售条款(「销售条款」),连同由Acker, Merrall & Condit Company(「AMC」)发出并列入销售条款的酒瓶描述及缺席竞投,构成竞投者与AMC及卖方( 「卖方」)对本目录中列明的拍卖货物(「拍卖货物」)的完整协议( 「协议」)。AMC可不时及随时于任何拍卖之前、期间及之后通过张贴通告、附录或勘误表或于出售期间通过在拍卖场作出口头公告修订协议。在拍卖会竞投,即代表竞投者同意受协议的所有条款及条件约束。

2. AMC作为代理人。

除协议另有说明外,AMC纯綷担任卖方的代理人。因此,出售所有拍卖货物的协议是经由卖方及拍卖官所接受的最高竞投者(「 买方」)之间作出的。AMC可自行决定将拍卖货物分为不同组别, 而各有关组别(「拍卖品」)将在拍卖中分开出价。

3. 拍卖前。
a)检查。 拍卖前,竞投者务请对任何有兴趣竞投的拍卖货物进行实物检查并以此作为依据,而非目录或其他地方提供的描述。尽管 AMC致力对所有拍卖货物作出准确描述,惟在任何情况下,AMC概不会就拍卖货物的任何口头或书面描述或就任何相关错误或遗漏负责。所有拍卖货物均以「现况」出售。

AMC可在出售若干拍卖货物之前或之后寻求外界专家的意见, 该拍卖货物可能附有标示显示专家已进行检查。拍卖会场并无挑选或检查任何将于本场拍卖出售的拍卖货物,亦不会就此承担任何责任。

b)不保证。无论在任何情况下,卖方或AMC或任何其各自的人员、雇员或代理人不得就任何拍卖货物的适销性、是否适合某种特定用途、有关任何拍卖货物的任何目录描述或原产地、实质状况、 质素、罕有度、真实性、归属、价值、估计价值、重要性、出处、展示历史、饮用性、历史意义或参考文献方面的其他描述的正确性,作出任何口头或书面明确或隐含的陈述、保证或担保。

c)竞投者登记。 如欲在本场拍卖中竞投,竞投者必须填妥及签署一份登记表格并提供身份证明及年龄证明。AMC亦可能要求竞投者出示银行或其他财务推荐信。AMC保留绝对权利拒绝任何潜在竞投者参加或参与任何拍卖。

d) 缺席竞投。 竞投者务请阅读缺席竞投表格,该表格构成本协议的一部份。为方便并无亲身、派代表或以电话出席拍卖会的竞投者,AMC将提交在拍卖前送达AMC的书面缺席竞投,该出价可能在互联网上提出。缺席竞投必须以出售地的货币提出。倘 AMC就有关拍卖品收到多个相同的书面出价,而在拍卖中该等出价为该拍卖品的最高金额,则有关拍卖品将出售予首先收到的缺席竞投。提交书面出价乃完全为方便竞投者而提供的免费服务,由AMC在受限于拍卖时现存的义务而承办。因此,在任何情况下,AMC对在执行有关书面出价时出现的任何错误或遗漏或对未能执行任何有关出价,概不负责。

e) 电话竞投。竞投者可在拍卖日之前与AMC作出安排,以透过电话在拍卖中出价。电话竞投为方便不能亲身或派代表或以书面作出缺席竞投出席拍卖会的竞投者而提供。提交电话出价乃完全为方便竞投者而提供的免费服务,由AMC在受限于拍卖时现存的责任而承办。因此,在任何情况下,AMC对在执行有关电话出价时出现的任何错误或遗漏或对未能执行任何有关出价,概不负责。

4. 拍卖时。

a)目录。 竞投者务请阅读酒瓶描述表格,该表格构成本协议的一部份。尽管AMC已致力在本目录中对各拍卖品作出准确的描述,惟在任何情况下,AMC概不会就任何描述或有关描述的错误或遗漏负责。AMC保留绝对权利随时于拍卖会之前及期间以任何方式修订任何拍卖品的任何描述。文中的分类仅作识别用途并以标准来源为基础。本目录所载各项陈述及每项其他陈述( 不论口头或书面,以及不论在广告、出售单据、附录、通告、 公告或其他书面或口头通讯中作出)仅属意见陈述,而竞投者不应以此为依据。 竞投者必须对自然程度的耗损、酒箱、标签、 酒塞及葡萄酒的状况给予适当宽容。除下文第5(d)条所述的条款规定外,在任何情况下,AMC概不会在运送后接受任何拍卖货物的退货、就任何拍卖货物提供赊账或调整任何拍卖货物的价格。本目录或其他地方出现的影像仅供说明及参考用途,未必能反映任何拍卖品的缺陷或瑕疵。竞投者在决定是否竞投拍卖货物时请勿以此目录的影像为依据,我们强烈建议竞投者在作出竞投前审阅相关AMC 拍卖目录条目并亲身检查任何拍卖货物。

b)	底价。各拍卖品的出售均设有底价,低于该最低价格便不会出售该拍卖品。AMC有权在该拍卖品公开予竞投时间之前随时提高或降低底价。在任何情况下,该拍卖品的底价不得超逾目录中印列或通过口头或张贴通告修订的该拍卖品的最低估价。拍卖品的底价可按潜在竞投者的要求提供,但如果底价其后有所更改,则AMC无义务向已获通知底价的潜在竞投者作出通知。

c) 估价。目录内提供了各拍卖品售价(不包括买方佣金及任何税项) 的最低及最高估价。在可能的情况下,估价乃根据过往出售可供比较拍卖货物的情况作出,该估价旨在为潜在竞投者提供一般指引,惟在任何情况下,估价并不构成实际售价的陈述或预测,亦不应以此作为依据。AMC在出售前决定估价,并保留权利修订估价以反映当前市况。

d) 竞投。保证。在拍卖会中亲身、通过缺席竞投、电话竞投、互联网上竞投或其他方式竞投,即代表竞投者陈述及保证 (i) 其最少年满二十一(21)岁、(ii) 其具有购买、接受、持有及以其他方式处理任何所购买拍卖品的合法权限、权利及能力,及(iii) 竞投者自行或由其代表作出任何的出价不是根据任何反竞争协议作出,且在其他方面遵守所有适用法律。

i)	每拍卖品出价。除非拍卖官另有公告,否则所有出价均按照本目录所载每项拍卖品以顺序数目的形式作出。

ii)	趋近但未达底价之竞投。受限于拍卖官的酌情决定权,出价须以接到的次序登记。拍卖官可代卖方为任何拍卖品叫第一口价以开始竞投。拍卖官更可代卖方透过就该拍卖品连续或接连出价或因应其他竞投者而出价,按趋近但未达或未超出底价作出竞投。


iii)	AMC竞投。AMC保留权利在不抵触适用于所有其他竞投者及买方的相同条款及条件下为其本身的账户在任何拍卖中对任何拍卖品出价。

iv)	未达底价之竞投。 倘某拍卖品的竞投未达底价,则拍卖官可收回该拍卖品。于收回时及在另一拍卖品开始竞投前,拍卖官须宣布已收回的拍卖品「流标」。

v)	落锤价。 拍卖官接受的最高竞投者将成为买方,而拍卖官敲下锤子即代表接受最后出价为「落锤价」及订立卖方及买方之间的出售合约。



vi)	无法律责任。在任何情况下,AMC对记入任何出价的任何错误或对未能记入任何出价,概不负责。

e) 货批。 在目录列出附有相同估价及包括相同葡萄酒种类、 数量、酒瓶容量的一系列拍卖品(「货批」)的情况下,倘该货批内的任何其后拍卖品没有更高的缺席竞投,则该货批中第一个拍卖品的买方可按拍卖官的酌情决定权获授选择权以相同落锤价购买该货批中任何或全部额外拍卖品。倘并无就全部该等拍卖品行使该选择权,则拍卖官将为下一个未出售拍卖品叫第一口价以开始竞投,并可向该拍卖品的买方提出承接该货批中任何或全部余下拍卖品的选择权。竞投将继续以相同方式进行,直至该货批中全部拍卖品已被拍卖官提出及宣布已出售或未达底标为止。

f) 拍卖官的酌情决定权。AMC及/或拍卖官拥有唯一及绝对酌情决定权以:(i) 抽起任何拍卖品;(ii) 分割任何拍卖品;(iii) 组合任何两个或以上的拍卖品;(iv) 拒绝任何出价;(v) 以AMC及/或拍卖官认为适合的方式进行竞投,包括更改叫价额度;以及(vi) 在出现错误或争议的情况下,为厘定成功竞投者而继续竞投、取消出售或重新提出及转售有争议的拍卖品。每当AMC及/或拍卖官行使其酌情决定权,其决定在各方面均为最终、具约束力及不可推翻的。拍卖官对接受在实时拍卖中在线拍卖就拍卖品提出的要约有酌情决定权。您的出价状态的在线通知可能会被拍卖官所凌驾。因此,即使您收到在线通知说明您的出价已被接受,拍卖官亦可能另有决定。拍卖官的决定为最终决定。

h) 买方佣金。落锤价应加上买家酬金的百分之二十四(24%)。

5. 拍卖后。

a)	付款。到期时。 反映最终购买价的最终发票会在每场拍卖会结束后七(7)天内发出。买方可于接获时支付每张发票,惟在任何情况下须于拍卖日期后的三十(30)天内支付每张发票。 即使此等销售条款的任何其他条文另有规定,所有在拍卖日期后超过三十五(35)天收到的付款将附加每月1.5%的利息费用直至发票获全数支付为止。

e) 贮存。拍卖货物只有在全数付款后方可提货。如果买方要求送货至纽约州以外的美国境内,买家须就此独自承担风险。在这种情况下,获购买的拍卖货物将会转移到PEP Logistics。PEP Logistics 作为买方的代理,会在拍卖日后的三十(30)天提供点内贮存,以便安排运货。若任何拍卖货物在拍卖日期后的三十(30)天内,未能完成运输安排或未被买家领回,该拍卖货物可由PEP Logistics移至协力厂商存仓设施(或,由PEP Logistics转移至其选择的存仓设施),买方在收回拍卖货物前应向PEP Logistics全数支付所有其间产生的与拍卖货物相关的包装、处理、运输、保险及协力厂商存仓的费用;买方亦要在收回拍卖货物前向PEP Logistics全数缴纳一切应缴成本和费用。由拍卖日期起计九十(90 )天内,不论买方因为任何原因而未有从PEP Logistics提取拍卖货物,将被视为买方授权PEP Logistics采取任何其认为适当的行动以处理相关拍卖货物,除非PEP Logistics与买方双方另有书面约定。PEP Logistics可以,自行作出选择,判定相关拍卖货物已被买方放弃,及/或除了基于就上所述事项征收成本和费用以及PEP Logistics根据普通法和平衡法所享有的任何其它权利外,PEP Logistics有权自行决定在任何地点以PEP Logistics自定的价格,公开或私下(包括任何一个或多个PEP Logistics或其他拍卖会或在一个或多个零售销售点)重新出售相关拍卖货物,并且从出售所得的总收益中扣除其法律费用和开支以及其他惯常成本,包括但不限于销售方佣金和买方溢价 (在拍卖中售出的情况下)、广告费、协力厂商销售佣金和包装、处理、运输、保险和额外的协力厂商仓储费。在任何情况下,PEP Logistics不会承担任何在拍卖日后三十(30)天内未被提取的拍卖货物之任何损失或损坏的责任。

f) 州外运送。

i)	买方须单独负责在纽约州以外但在美国境内运送的拍卖货物,并须负上遵守适用法律的所有义务。


ii)	受限于适用法律,应买方要求,PEP Logistics 可担任代理人代买方安排合适的承运公司。曼哈顿区外的运送由买方支付。所有透过PEP Logistics安排在美国境内的运送,会由PEP Logistics 纯綷担任买方的代理人。承运公司在收到拍卖货物时,会以「离岸价」方式运送拍卖货物,损失或损坏风险会转移至纽约的买方。运费必须由您预先缴付或到付。PEP Logistics亦可能会收取服务费。付运可于收取所有付款及资金存进AMC的账户后作出安排。买方应容许5个工作天以作美国境内付运的安排,及10个工作天以作美国境外及国际付运的安排, 美国境外及国际付运可能要求提供海关文件或特别路线安排。

iii)	经由任何承运公司付运拍卖货物而引起的任何损失或损毁以及有关风险将由买方及/或承运公司全部承担。AMC对拍卖货物在运输途中发生的任何变坏、损毁或损失,概不负责。

g)  所有权及税项

i)	交付到获许可的州份。对于运往AMC领有牌照的(包括纽约州)或持有直接面向消费者运输许可的州份的订单,产品的所有权及拥有权会在纽约转移给您。销售及其他适用税项将根据目的地国家的要求征收。

ii)	交付到美国所有其他地点。含酒精饮料的所有权及拥有权会在纽约转移给您,而产品从纽约运往您选定的目的地之责任由您独自承担。您可在AMC位于纽约市区或其位于纽约州考塔奇谷的厂库提取产品,或在受限于上文第5(e) 及 5(f) 条,您亦可独自安排运货。纽约州的销售税将适用于所有情况。由于AMC不允许将产品运送到其未持有直接面向消费者运输许可的州份,因此,尽管您可能需要任何其后州外的付运安排,产品亦只可在纽约运送给您或您的代理。

iii)	运送到美国境外。含酒精饮料的所有权会在纽约转移给您。如拍卖货物交由买方雇用或代理的货运代理商或国际承运人直接出口到美国境外,您将不用支付销售税。

如买方为持牌及/或已登记的经销商,并向AMC提供正确填写的转售证明书,可能免缴销售税。

一些司法管辖区亦可能会向入境的付运拍卖货物征收消费税。如有需要,AMC或PEP Logistics(作为买方的代理人) 可向买方收取有关消费税。
h) 陈述。

i)	进口及运送。AMC对任何人士运送或进口任何含酒精饮料或其他物品入任何州份或司法管辖区的合法权利概不作出任何陈述。您保证对所购买的产品的运送及确定将产品运至您所选择的目的地的合法性和税项/消费税的后果付上全部责任。AMC透过为您安排运送含酒精饮料向您提供服务,并为您担任代理人。透过使用AMC提供的服务,您表示您就购买、运送及交付含酒精饮料有遵守当地、州份及司法管辖区的法律。您进一步表示您在法律上有权收取订购的数量,并且您及接收含酒精饮料产品的人员至少年满21岁。

ii)	出口。在拍卖会出售的拍卖货物可能受制于规管自美国出口的法律。AMC对任何人士出口含酒精饮料或其他物品入任何州份或司法管辖区的合法权利概不作出任何陈述。在拍卖竞投前决定买方的购买是否需要出口许可证或牌照及取得任何有关所需许可证或牌照,一概由买方独自负责。任何有关许可证或牌照遭拒绝或延迟取得,概不会成为撤销任何出售或延迟就购买全数付款的理由。

i) 撤销。
i)	AMC的有限保证。倘于拍卖后九十(90)天内,某拍卖品的买方书面知会AMC该拍卖品有所缺漏或不健全(如受热而变质及酒质变坏),或该拍卖品的相关发售资料中作出的任何陈述实质上不正确,则AMC将以检查或其认为适合的该等其他合理方式作为买方及卖方之间申索效力的唯一仲裁人,并将根据其对该申索效力的裁定作出对买方及卖方具约束力的最终决定。除非所有有关拍卖货物 (i) 在酒瓶上贴有AMC拍卖日期参考标签、(ii)状况保持与其运送予买方时一样,及(iii)在适当的情况下付运予及自买方及贮存,否则AMC概不会受理买方根据前句提出的申索。任何有关申索一经决定,则AMC可真诚地指令出售持续有效或被撤销而最终购买价款将获全部或部份退回。 在拍卖竞投,即代表竞投者为其本身及其继任人及受让人同意 (i)在此放弃因AMC根据本第5(d) 段作出或未能作出的任何裁定而对AMC提出任何申索或提起任何法律行动的任何权利,及 (ii)倘买方未能根据本条文向AMC提供及时及适当的通知,买方会当作已放弃按本协议规定可撤销的权利。

iii)	买方的唯一补救方法。向买方退回拍卖货物购买价款将为买方就任何拍卖货物状况相关事宜获得的唯一补偿,而有关补偿仅在买方自AMC接收该拍卖货物后适用。在任何情况下,AMC 概不会就任何间接、特别、惩罚性、相应、利润损失或其他损害赔偿(包括但不限于律师费及开支,不论如何产生)负责, 而AMC的最高法律责任将为本协议所容许可退回买方就任何拍卖货物支付的金额(不包括所有税项)。卖方就本协议或要约、购买及出售构成拍卖货物之购买及出售的任何葡萄酒概不承担根据本协议、侵权法或其他任何性质或种类(不论是法律上或衡平法上)的法律责任。

iv)	不同的进口商。 如拍卖品包括来自不同进口商的葡萄酒,AMC致力将有关事实列载于目录中,惟未能如此列载并非撤销任何拍卖品出售的理由。同样地,目录中任何有关酒瓶及/或生产商在其构成拍卖货物的酒瓶印上的拍卖货物编号的不正确陈述或遗漏,并非撤销任何拍卖品出售的理由。

v)	不同年份及/或生产商。尽管本销售条款中有任何相反规定,AMC同意就任何自AMC购买的或生产商在目录上所述或AMC在目录上所陈述的不属于该年份之拍卖货物退还落锤价 (包括但不限于拍卖货物之伪制品),条件是:(i) 买方直接向AMC购买拍卖货物;(ii) 买方在拍卖货物交付予买方起计九十(90)天内将拍卖货物退还予AMC;及(iii) 买方将拍卖货物以与运送予买方时大致上一样的状况退还。

6. 一般条款。

a)标题。 本销售条款的分条标题仅为方便参考而设,不应视为本协议的实质部份。

亚洲拍卖销售条款

買方銷售條款

1. 買方協議。
在拍賣競投,即代表拍賣競投者(「競投者」)同意本買方銷售條款(「銷售條款」),連同均由Acker, Merrall & Condit (Asia) Limited(「AMC」)發出並列入銷售條款的葡萄酒之收取及付運、酒瓶描述及場外出價,構成競投者與AMC及賣方( 「賣方」)對本目錄中列明的財產(「財產」)的完整協議(「協議」)。AMC可不時及隨時於任何拍賣之前、期間及之後通過張貼通告、附錄或勘誤表或於出售期間通過在拍賣場作出口頭公告修訂協議。在拍賣競投,即代表競投者同意受協議的所有條款及條件約束。
2. AMC作為代理人。
除協議另有說明外,AMC純綷擔任賣方的代理人。因此,出售所有財產的協議是經由賣方及拍賣人所接受的最高競投者(「買方」)之間作出的。AMC可自行決定將財產分為不同組別,而各有關組別(「拍賣品」)將在拍賣中分開出價。

3. 拍賣前。

a)	檢查。拍賣前,競投者務請對任何有興趣競投的財產進行實物檢查並倚賴該檢查,而非目錄或其他地方提供的描述。儘管AMC致力對所有財產作出準確描述,惟在任何情況下,AMC概不會就財產的任何口頭或書面描述或就任何相關錯誤或遺漏負責。所有財產均以「現況」出售。

AMC可在出售之前或之後尋求外界專家對若干財產的意見,該財產可能附有標示顯示專家已進行檢查。拍賣會場並無挑選或檢查任何將於本場拍賣出售的財產,亦不會就此承擔任何責任。

b)不保證。無論在任何情況下,賣方或AMC或任何其各自的人員、僱員或代理人不得就任何財產的適銷性、是否適合某種特定用途、有關任何財產的任何目錄描述或原產地、實質狀況、質素、罕有度、真實性、歸屬、價值、估計價值、重要性、出處、展示歷史、飲用性、歷史意義或參考文獻方面的其他描述的正確性,作出任何口頭或書面明確或隱含的聲明、保證或擔保。

c) 競投者登記。如欲在本場拍賣中競投,競投者必須填妥及簽署一份登記表格並提供身份證明及年齡證明。AMC亦可能要求競投者出示銀行或其他財務推薦信。AMC保留絕對權利拒絕任何潛在競投者進入或參與任何拍賣。

d)進口。買方務請閱讀葡萄酒之收取及付運表格,該表格構成本協議的一部份。若干司法管轄區禁止進口,或限制可能帶入或運入該司法管轄區的含酒精飲料的數量。此外,若干司法管轄區可能規定買方、賣方或付運商擁有若干牌照或許可證。另外,當地法律可能禁止進口及/或轉售葡萄酒。買方應自行決定該等禁制、限制或遏制是否適用於買方及在拍賣競投前決定含酒精飲料是否及如何可合法帶入任何司法管轄區。任何有關許可證或牌照遭禁止或拒絕或延遲取得,概不會成為撤銷任何出售或延遲就購買全數付款的理由。

AMC對任何人士付運或進口含酒精飲料至、自或入任何司法管轄區的合法權利概不作出任何聲明或保證。此外,AMC就申請或取得任何有關許可證或牌照概不承擔任何義務亦不負上任何責任。

e) 出口。在拍賣出售的財產可能受制於規管自香港出口的法律。在拍賣競投前決定買方的購買是否需要出口許可證或牌照及取得任何有關所需許可證或牌照,一概由買方獨自負責。任何有關許可證或牌照遭拒絕或延遲取得,概不會成為撤銷任何出售或延遲就購買全數付款的理由。

AMC對任何人士付運或出口含酒精飲料至或自任何司法管轄區的合法權利概不作出任何聲明或保證。此外,AMC就申請或取得任何有關許可證或牌照概不承擔任何義務亦不負上任何責任。

f) 場外出價。競投者務請閱讀場外出價表格,該表格構成本協議的一部份。為方便並無親身、派代表或以電話出席拍賣的競投者,AMC將提交在拍賣前送達AMC的書面場外出價,該出價可能在互聯網上提出。場外出價必須以出售地的貨幣提出。倘AMC收到多個有關個別拍賣品的相同書面出價,而在拍賣中該等出價為該拍賣品的最高金額,則有關拍賣品將出售予首先收到的場外出價。提交書面出價乃完全為方便競投者而提供的免費服務,由AMC在受限於拍賣時現存的義務而承辦。因此,在任何情況下,AMC對在執行有關書面出價時出現的任何錯誤或遺漏或對未能執行任何有關出價,概不負責。

g) 電話競投。拍賣日之前,競投者可與AMC作出安排,以透過電話在拍賣中出價。電話競投為方便不能親身或派代表或以書面場外出價出席拍賣的競投者而提供。提交電話出價乃完全為方便競投者而提供的免費服務,由AMC在受限於拍賣時現存的責任而承辦。因此,在任何情況下,AMC對在執行有關電話出價時出現的任何錯誤或遺漏或對未能執行任何有關出價,概不負責。

4. 拍賣時。
a) 目錄。競投者務請閱讀酒瓶描述表格,該表格構成本協議的一部份。儘管AMC已致力在本目錄中對各拍賣品作出準確描述,惟在任何情況下,AMC概不會就任何描述或有關描述的錯誤或遺漏負責。AMC保留絕對權利隨時於拍賣之前及期間以任何方式修訂任何拍賣品的任何描述。文中的分類僅作識別用途並以標準來源為基礎。本目錄所載各項陳述及每項其他陳述( 不論口頭或書面,以及不論在廣告、出售單據、附錄、通告、公告或其他書面或口頭通訊中作出)僅屬意見陳述,而不應被
任何競投者倚賴。競投者必須對自然程度的耗損、酒箱、標籤、酒塞及葡萄酒的狀況給予適當寬容。除下文第5(d)條所述的條款規定外,在任何情況下,AMC概不會在運送後接受任何財產的退貨、就任何財產提供賒賬或調整任何財產的價格。本目錄或其他地方出現的影像僅供說明及參考用途,不一定能反映任何拍賣品的缺陷或瑕疵。競投者在決定是否競投財產時請勿倚賴目錄的影像,強烈建議競投者在作出競投前審閱相關AMC拍賣目錄條目並親身檢查任何財產。

b)底價。各拍賣品的出售均設有底價,低於該最低價格便不會出售該拍賣品。AMC有權在該拍賣品公開予競投時間之前隨時提高或降低底價,在任何情況下,該拍賣品的底價不得超逾目錄中印列或通過口頭或張貼通告修訂的該拍賣品的低位估價。
c)估價。目錄內提供了各拍賣品售價(不包括買方佣金及任何稅項)的低位及高位估價。在可能的情況下,估價乃根據過往出售可供比較財產的情況作出,儘管估價旨在作為潛在競投者的一般指引,惟在任何情況下,估價並不構成實際售價的聲明或預測,亦不應作為如此的依據。AMC在出售前決定估價,並保留權利修訂估價以反映當前市況。

d) 競投。保證。在拍賣中親身、通過場外出價、電話競投、互聯網上競投或其他方式競投,即代表競投者聲明及保證(i)其最少年滿二十一(21)歲、(ii)其具有購買、接受、擁有及以其他方式處理任何所購買拍賣品的合法權限、權利及能力,及(iii)競投者自行或由其代表作出任何的出價不是根據任何反競爭協議作出,且在其他方面遵守所有適用法律。

每拍賣品出價。除非拍賣人另有公告,否則所有出價均按照本目錄所載每項拍賣品以順序數目的形式作出。

趨近但未達底價之競投。受限於拍賣人的酌情決定權,出價須以接到的次序記入。拍賣人可代賣方為任何拍賣品叫第一口價以開始競投。拍賣人更可代賣方透過就該拍賣品連續或接連出價或因應其他競投者而出價,按趨近但未達或未超出底價作出競投。

按及超出底價之競投。競投一經達到拍賣品的底價,拍賣人將不會代賣方出價,而且只會接受賣方或賣方代理人以外人士的出價。

賣方不參與競投。賣方已同意不對任何其所擁有的拍賣品出價或促使代其對有關拍賣品出價。

AMC競投。AMC保留權利在不抵觸適用於所有其他競投者及買方的相同條款及條件下為其本身的賬戶在任何拍賣中對任何拍賣品出價。

未達底價競投。倘某拍賣品的競投未達底價,則拍賣人可收回該拍賣品。於收回時及另一拍賣品的競投開始前,拍賣人須宣佈收回的拍賣品已屬「過去」。

成交價。拍賣人接受的最高競投者將成為買方,而拍賣人敲下槌子即代表接受最後出價為「成交價」及訂立賣方及買方之間的出售合約。

轉移所有權。買方在此確認及同意任何拍賣品的所有權在AMC向買方發出最終發票(「最終發票」)後轉移予買方。買方在此指名及授權AMC為買方的獨家代理人,以貯存或採取本協議授權的任何其他行動,直至買方向AMC匯出最終發票的全數款項為止。買方確認及放棄接管任何一個或多個所購買拍賣品的權利,直至買方向AMC匯出最終發票的全數款項為止。

無法律責任。在任何情況下,AMC對記入任何出價的任何錯誤或對未能記入任何出價,概不負責。

e)貨批。在目錄列出附有相同估價及包括相同葡萄酒種類、數量、酒瓶容量的一系列拍賣品(「貨批」)的情況下,倘該貨批內的任何其後拍賣品沒有更高的場外出價,則該貨批中第一個拍賣品的買方可按拍賣人的酌情決定權獲授選擇權以相同成交價購買該貨批中任何或全部額外拍賣品。倘並無就全部該等拍賣品行使該選擇權,則拍賣人將為下一個未出售拍賣品叫第一口價以開始競投,並可向該拍賣品的買方提出承接該貨批中任何或全部餘下拍賣品的選擇權。競投將繼續以相同方式進行,直至該貨批中全部拍賣品已被拍賣人提出及宣佈已出售或未出售為止。

f)拍賣人的酌情決定權。AMC及/或拍賣人擁有唯一及絕對酌情決定權以︰(i)抽起任何拍賣品;(ii)分割任何拍賣品;(iii)結合任何兩個或以上拍賣品;(iv)拒絕任何出價;(v)以AMC及/或拍賣人認為適合的方式進行競投,包括更改遞增額;以及(vi)在出現錯誤或爭議的情況下,為決定成功競投者而繼續競投、取消出售或重新提出及轉售所爭議的拍賣品。每當AMC及/或拍賣人行使其酌情決定權,其決定在各方面均為最終、具約束力及不可推翻。

g) AMC在其中擁有經濟利益的財產。AMC在其中擁有經濟利益的拍賣品將在該拍賣品出現的首頁頁首以*號標明,或若無頁首,則在首個適用託售拍賣品旁邊以*號標明。

h)買方佣金。百分之二十四(24%)的買方佣金將加進成交價。

5. 拍賣後。

a) 付款。到期時。反映最終購買價的最終發票會在每場拍賣結束後七(7)天內發出。買方可於接獲時支付每張發票,惟在任何情況下須於拍賣日期後三十(30)天內支付每張發票。即使此等銷售條款的任何其他條文另有規定,所有在拍賣日期後超過三十五(35)天收到的付款將附加每月1.5%的利息費用直至發票獲全數支付為止。

付款方法。付款可以支票或電匯形式作出。所有被退回的未能兌現支票須支付港幣800元的手續費。港幣150,000元及以下的購買可接受Visa、MasterCard及American Express。其他信用卡概不接受。如需要電匯指示或如有任何疑問,請透過info@ ackerasia.com聯絡我們。

b) 發放已購買財產。AMC一經收到最終購買價全數付款後,並受限於買方遵循協議的其他條款及條件,已購買拍賣品將發放予買方。買方於拍賣後三十(30)天內仍未收取的任何拍賣品將由AMC移離作貯存,而AMC就此產生的包裝、處理、移離、保險及貯存成本將按葡萄酒之收取及付運表格所載列方式作出評估。任何有關拍賣品於前述成本按當時適用費率全數支付後,方會自貯存中發放。


c) 包裝及付運。買方務請閱讀葡萄酒之收取及付運表格。

由AMC。受限於葡萄酒之收取及付運表格的條款,所有包裝、處理、運輸、保險及運送已購買財產的責任、風險及開支一概由買方獨自承擔,不論買方是否就有關目的聘任AMC。買方須預先向AMC支付AMC在提供該等服務時產生的一切開支,除非AMC憑其唯一酌情決定權選擇在提供該等服務後向買方開出發票。

由第三方。AMC(代表買方)將按照買方的指示安排由買方選擇的承運公司運送已購買財產,惟AMC對任何承運公司或付運人的任何行為或遺漏(包括但不限於任何財產的任何包裝、處理、運輸、保險或運送及在不當的情況下貯存或付運財產)概不負責。

d) 撤銷。AMC的有限保證。倘於拍賣後九十(90)天內,某拍賣品的買方書面知會AMC該拍賣品有所缺漏或不健全(如受熱而變質及酒質變壞),或該拍賣品的相關發售資料中作出的任何
陳述實質上不正確,則AMC將以檢查或其認為適合的該等其他合理方式作為買方及賣方之間申索效力的唯一仲裁人,並將根據其對該申索效力的裁定作出對買方及賣方具約束力的最終決定。除非所有有關財產(i)在酒瓶上貼有AMC拍賣日期參考標籤、(ii)狀況保持與其運送予買方時一樣,及(iii)在適當的情況下付運予及自買方及貯存,否則AMC概不會受理買方根據前一句子提出的申索。任何有關申索一經決定,則AMC可真誠地指令出售持續有效或被撤銷而最終購買價款將獲全部或部份退回。在拍賣競投,即代表競投者為其本身及其繼任人及受讓人同意
(i)其在此放棄因AMC根據本第5 (d)段作出或未能作出的任何裁定而對AMC提出任何申索或提起任何法律行動的任何權利,及
(ii)倘買方未能根據本條文向AMC提供及時及適當的通知,買方須當作已放棄按本協議規定可撤銷的權利。

只適用於買方的撤銷。倘AMC選擇在有關情況下撤銷,則撤銷補救方法只會適用於財產的買方,其必須仍為該財產的唯一擁有人而並無將其中的任何利益轉讓予任何第三方。

買方的唯一補救方法。向買方退回財產購買價款將為買方就任何財產狀況相關事宜獲得的唯一補救方法,而有關補救方法僅在買方自AMC接收該財產後適用。在任何情況下,AMC概不會就任何間接、特別、懲罰性、相應、利潤損失或其他損害賠償(包括但不限於律師費及開支,不論如何產生)負責,而AMC的最高法律責任將為本協議所容許可退回買方就任何財產支付的金額(不包括所有稅項)。賣方就本協議或要約、購買及出售構成財產之購買及出售的任何葡萄酒概不承擔根據本協議、侵權法或其他任何性質或種類(不論是法律上或衡平法上)的法律責任。

不同的進口商。如拍賣品包括來自不同進口商的葡萄酒,AMC致力將有關事實列載於目錄中,惟未能如此列載並非撤銷任何拍賣品出售的理由。同樣地,目錄中任何有關酒瓶及/或生產商在其構成財產的酒瓶印上的財產編號的不正確陳述或遺漏,並非撤銷任何拍賣品出售的理由。

e) 買方違責。倘買方未有在拍賣後九十(90)天內根據銷售條款付款,則AMC可憑其絕對酌情決定權︰
i.	取消該出售;
ii.	為買方的賬戶公開或私人轉售該財產,風險由買方承擔,除向買方收取初次出售及按AMC的正常收費進行轉售兩者的一切成本及開支以及就初次出售欠付的買方佣金外,亦向買方收取轉售的最終出價少於買方所提出最終出價的任何差額;
iii.	以買方欠付的所有款項抵銷AMC可能結欠買方的任何款項;
iv.	行使在AMC管有下由買方擁有或託售的任何財產或其他財產中持有第一優先已完成抵押權益人士的所有權利及補救方法;
v.	向買方收取欠付的總款額以及AMC在執行有關收取時產生的任何損失、成本或開支;
vi.	就買方欠付的所有款項按年率百分之十八(18%)向買方收取利息;
vii.	向買方收取AMC在行使本協議所載述任何一項或多項權利或補救方法而產生的費用、開支及法律顧問代墊支費用;
viii.	不准許買方直接或間接參與AMC將來舉行的拍賣;
ix.	行使賣方針對買方可用的任何權利或補救方法;及
x.	堅持在法律上或衡平法上可用的任何其他權利或補救方法。

AMC可憑其酌情決定權行使任何一項或多項以上補救方法或其任何組合。

f) 買方的彌償保證。買方就因(i)買方違反或指稱違反本協議的任何保證或違反本協議;(ii)買方根據或就本協議送達的任何證書、文件或文據的任何不確之處;及(iii)買方、其代理人或僱員對財產造成不利影響的任何行為或遺漏而引起的任何損失、開支(包括須預先支付的律師費及開支)、法律責任、成本或損害賠償,向AMC、其人員、董事、僱員及代理人彌償、為其進行辯護及使其免受損失。買方的聲明、保證及彌償保證將在本協議擬進行的交易完成後仍然有效。

g) 版權。AMC保留其自行或由其代表提供的所有影像、圖示及書面材料,包括但不限於本目錄的內容(統稱「材料」)的版權,且在任何情況下,買方或任何第三方在未取得AMC的事先書面同意下不得使用任何材料。在任何情況下,AMC或賣方就買方將取得任何財產的任何版權、複製權或任何其他知識產權概不作出任何聲明或保證。

6. 一般條款。

a)標題。本銷售條款的分條標題僅為方便參考而設,不應視為本協議的實質部份。
b)完整協議。本協議(包括所有以提述方式收納的文據)構成AMC與買方就本協議主題的完整協議並取締雙方之間的任何及全部較前的討論及協議。本協議不得作修改,而本協議任何部份概不得獲授任何豁免、變動、更改、同意或解除,惟AMC及買方雙方以書面簽立的文據作出者除外。AMC未有執行本協議的任何規定並不構成對該規定作出豁免。
d)無聯營關係。本協議的條文概不得解釋為AMC與買方設立任何代理、合夥或其他聯合企業。
e)管限法律。本協議受香港法律管限,並按其詮釋及執行,而不援引規管法律衝突的原則。
f)爭議解決。根據或就本協議條款的詮釋或應用或其任何引伸或更改或任何一方的聲稱違反所引起的任何及所有爭議或爭論,將通過在提交仲裁通知時生效的《香港國際仲裁中心機構仲裁規則》在香港作出最終及具約束力的仲裁而解決。仲裁員為一名,而仲裁程序將以英語進行。任何如此獲委任的仲裁員除可判被發現已違反本協議的一方支付實際的金錢上損害賠償(但非懲罰性損害賠償)外,亦將獲賦權在其裁決中授出強制性或其他類型的衡平法補救方法、執行本協議的強制履行,及防止任何持續或進一步違反其條款。所作仲裁裁決的判決可登記於當地具司法管轄權的任何法院。該仲裁費用將由雙方平均分擔,惟各方須負責其本身的律師費。
