You acknowledge that temporary interruptions in the availability of the Site may occur from time to time as normal events.

Also, we may decide to cease making available the Site or any portion of the Site at any time and for any reason. Under no circumstances will we be held liable for any damages due to such interruptions or lack of availability.

The Buyer is aware that unless otherwise stated, the Items are not new nor in perfect condition and may require touch-up or repairs prior to use and that the available information about these Items may be limited. The Site is designed to provide the Buyer access to Items as we present them.

  1. The Sale Process

In the event(s) of an error by us the seller as to availability of the Item as to acceptance of the Buyer’s offer or counter-offer, or any other error on CAI part with respect to a Sale Confirmation or the operation of the Site, we reserve the right in our sole and absolute discretion to rescind that Sale Confirmation without penalty to any party.

Once we CAI and you the Buyer agree on the terms of the sale of an Item, a binding contract between you the Buyer and us the Seller with respect to the sale and purchase of that Item is created.

  1. Payment for Products Purchased

The Buyer hereby irrevocably authorizes CAI upon Sale Confirmation to charge the Buyer’s credit card or other payment methods for an amount equal to the Total Purchase Price In case additional charges come along such shipping, packing & etc.

If for any reason after receipt of the Sale Confirmation, Buyer cancels a payment made by credit card or any other means or the Buyer otherwise fails to make any payment(s) with respect to the Total Purchase Price, Buyer shall remain liable to the full Total Purchase Price and any costs related to the sale of the Item including but not limited to taxes, storage and handling fees if applicable and any costs incurred by CAI associated with collecting any amount including but not limited to legal fees and costs related to currency fluctuations.

Without limitation to the preceding sentence and in addition to any other remedies at law or equity, in the event of Buyer default, CAI reserves the right, at its election, to retain any and all payments paid by Buyer prior to Buyer default with respect to the Item and to cancel the sale of the Item without any further obligation to Buyer. The Buyer acknowledges and agrees that damages to CAI in the event of Buyer Default will be difficult or impossible to prove and that the paid amount is reasonable compensation to CAI for damages suffered and constitutes liquidated damages and not a penalty.

  1. Right of Cancellation

Where the EU Consumer Rights Directive (2011/83/EU) as implemented into national law in the various EU jurisdictions applies to a Buyer, unless one of the exceptions below applies, such a Buyer has the right to cancel its order without giving reason within 14 days from the day on which that Buyer or a third party indicated by the Buyer receives an Item. The Buyer must inform CAI of its decision to cancel the order in writing within this period. Reimbursement may be withheld until the CAI has received the Items back from the Buyer. The Buyer must send back the Items following the instructions of the CAI. The Buyer will bear the cost of returning the Items to the CAI. The Buyer may lose this right if the value of the Items returned diminishes due to the handling of the Items. The right of cancellation does not apply to: (a) the supply of Items made to the Buyer’s specifications; (b) the supply of Items which may deteriorate or expire rapidly; (c) the delivery of Items which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygienic reasons if unsealed by the Buyer after delivery, or which are, after delivery, mixed with other items.

  1. Sales are “As-Is”

All Items displayed on the Site are sold “AS IS”.

No statement anywhere, whether oral or written, shall be deemed any such guarantee, warranty or representation. CAI makes no representation or warranty as to whether the Buyer acquires any reproduction rights or other intellectual property rights in any Item.

  1. Outside of the US Buying and Selling; Translation

Many of CAI Services are accessible to Buyers outside of the US. CAI may offer certain programs, tools, and site experiences of particular interest to those Buyers, such as estimated local currency conversion and international shipping calculation tools. Buyers are responsible for complying with all laws and regulations applicable to the international sale, purchase, and shipment of items.

Buyers authorize CAI to use automated tools to translate the Buyers’ Site content and communications, in whole or in part, into local languages where such translation solutions are available. CAI may provide Buyers with tools which will enable the Buyers to translate content upon request. The accuracy and availability of any translation are not guaranteed and CAI is not liable in any way to the Buyer for any loss suffered where the automated tools are used.

  1. Expert Review

If the Buyer is purchasing an Item based partially or entirely on its stated provenance, designer or creator, the Buyer may at its option and at its own cost arrange CAI to have Buyer’s selected expert review the Item prior to purchase. Selection of the expert is the sole responsibility of the Buyer. Buyer expressly acknowledges that the Buyer’s use and/or reliance on any expert is at the Buyer’s own risk and cost prior to the purchase.

  1. Taxes and Import/Export Duties

The Buyer is entirely responsible for paying all sales and use taxes, VAT, export and/or import taxes and duties and all transactional taxes or levies related to the purchase of each Item purchased (collectively, “Taxes”). The Buyer shall pay such Taxes as the we are required to collect, but failure of CAI to collect the Taxes will not relieve the Buyer’s obligation. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to establish and/or document any applicable exemption from Taxes. The Buyer must determine, pay, collect, remit and report to the appropriate taxing authority the correct amount of all export and/or import taxes or duties payable upon export of the Item from its country of origin and import into the United States or any other country.

  1. Transfer of Title/Risk of Loss

In the case of Buyer-arranged shipping, risk of loss and title for such Items pass to Buyer upon CAI delivery of the Item to the carrier selected by the Buyer for shipment or when the Buyer picks up the Item from CAI. In the case of CAI arranging shipping, risk of loss and title for such Items pass to Buyer upon Buyer’s receipt of the Item. CAI represents that we are the sole owner of each Item offered for sale on the Site or that we are duly authorized by the owner of the Item to sell the Item and that we will transfer ownership of the Item to the Buyer free from any claims by third parties.

  1. Shipping

Buyer-arranged shipping. Buyer is in every instance free to arrange Buyer’s own shipping and may elect to use any shipping company of its choice. The crating/shipping/insurance companies designated by the Buyer are the Buyer’s agents and the Buyer will bear all applicable costs and pay such costs directly to the agents. Buyer may also ask CAI to arrange for shipping of Items on Buyer’s behalf which may be subject to pre-advertised shipping prices.

Seller-arranged shipping. Buyer may elect to have CAI arrange for crating, packaging, shipping and freight insurance. Upon Buyer’s request CAI shall provide shipping information including the name of the freight carrier, the complete cost of shipment from CAI to Buyer’s designated receiving address, the cost of any duty or other charges to be paid by Buyer, the cost of freight insurance and the name of such insurance provider, as well as any costs or fees to be charged by Seller for crating or packaging the Items for shipment.

(A) Binding Arbitration. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, or its breach, which cannot be resolved between the parties through negotiation within thirty (30) days, shall be submitted to the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) for mandatory binding arbitration in front of a single arbitrator chosen in accordance with the AAA Rules. Discovery shall be permitted, but only to the extent that the documents are directly relevant to and needed for fair resolution of one or more of the issues of importance and can be located and produced at a cost that is reasonable in the context of all surrounding facts and circumstances. When the cost and burden of discovery are disproportionate to the likely importance of the requested materials, the arbitrator may deny the requests or require that the requesting party advance the reasonable cost of production to the other side.

(B) Additional Provisions. The arbitrator may not award non-monetary or equitable relief of any sort, nor award damages inconsistent with these Terms. All aspects of the arbitration shall be treated as confidential. Neither the parties nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content or results of the arbitration, except as necessary to enforce the results of the arbitration or to comply with legal or regulatory requirements. The arbitrator shall render its award in writing and will include the findings of fact and conclusion of law upon which the award is based. The result of the arbitration shall bind the parties and judgment on the arbitrators’ award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. In addition to any and all other relief to which a Party may be entitled, the arbitrator shall award reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, including reasonable expert witness fees and costs, to the prevailing Party (should there be one) in any such arbitration.

(C) Waiver of Jury Trial; Individual Basis; Equitable Relief. The parties surrender and waive the right to submit any dispute to a court or jury, or to appeal to a higher court. The parties agree to arbitration on an individual basis. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be a class arbitration).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in these Terms shall prohibit either party from seeking and obtaining from a court of competent jurisdiction (without necessity of posting bond) injunctive relief in order to preserve the status quo and/or avoid irreparable harm for which monetary damage would be insufficient.

(D) Where Held; Language; Governing Law. The place of arbitration shall be the borough of Manhattan, City of New York, NY, USA, and the proceedings shall be conducted in the English language. These Terms shall be governed by the United States Federal Arbitration Act to the exclusion of any inconsistent state laws and the arbitrator shall follow the law and judicial precedents that a United States District Judge sitting in the Southern District of New York would apply to the dispute.
