- AFTER THE SALE

10.4 The Auctioneer may at our sole discretion grant an extension of time to the Buyer for the Buyer to comply with clause 10.2 above.
10.5 Title to the Lot will only pass to the Buyer on receipt by us in cleared funds of the full Purchase Price.

The Buyer shall not be entitled to remove the Lot until such time as it has paid all sums due to us.
10.6 Unless otherwise agreed in writing between the Seller and us, we may at our discretion pay the Sale Proceeds to the Seller before receipt of the Purchase Price, and, on our doing so, title in the Lot will pass to us and the Seller’s right to payment of the Purchase Price will pass to us together with any right of action which the Seller may have against the Buyer for non-payment.
10.7 If before the Sale Proceeds have been distributed to the Seller the Buyer or any other person makes a claim against either the Seller or us in relation to the Lot, we may withhold distribution of the Sale Proceeds to the Seller until such time as the claim has been resolved. In that event we will transfer the Sale Proceeds into a separate interest bearing account with our bank.
10.8 If the Buyer fails or refuses to pay the Purchase Price for the Lot in accordance with this Clause 10, we will notify the Seller of this as soon as reasonably practicable following the date payment was due from the Buyer pursuant to Clause 10.3.

11.2 The Auctioneer may at our sole discretion grant an extension of time to the Buyer for the Buyer to comply with Clause 11.1 above.
11.3 The Buyer will be wholly responsible for packing, handling, and transport of the Lot on collection and for complying with any import or export regulations, taxes or duties in connection with the Lot.

12.2 If you have not paid for the Lot in accordance with clause 10, UKFM reserves the right to move the Lot to a third party’s premises, the Lot will be held by such third party strictly to UKFM’ order and we will retain a lien over the Lot until we have been paid in full in accordance with clause 10.

13.3 Any Lot in the possession of the Auctioneer prior to sale shall remain at the risk of the Seller until such time as it is “knocked down” to the Buyer or collected from the Auctioneer by the Seller.
- FAILURE BY THE BUYER TO PAY OR TO REMOVE THE LOT AND PART PAYMENTS
14.1 If all sums payable to us are not so paid in full at the time they are due and/or the Lot is not removed in accordance with these Conditions of Sale, we shall, without further notice to the Buyer, be entitled to exercise one or more of the following rights (without prejudice to any rights we may exercise on behalf of the Seller):
14.1.1 terminate this Contract immediately for the Buyer’s breach of contract;
14.1.2 retain possession of the Lot;
14.1.3 remove, and/or store the Lot at the Buyer’s expense;
14.1.4 take legal proceedings against the Buyer for payment of any sums payable to us by the Buyer (including the Purchase Price) and/or damages for breach of contract;
14.1.6 to repossess the Lot (or any part thereof) which has not become the property of the Buyer, and for this purpose (unless the Buyer buys the Lot as a Consumer) the Buyer hereby grants an irrevocable licence to us, by ourselves, our servants or agents, to enter upon all or any of the Buyer’s premises (with or without vehicles) during normal business hours to take possession of any Lot or part thereof;
14.1.7 to sell the Lot Without Reserve by Auction, private treaty or any other means on giving the Buyer written notice of our intention to do so;

14.1.11 refuse to allow the Buyer to register for a future Auction or to reject a bid from the Buyer at any future Auction or to require the Buyer to pay a deposit before any bid is accepted by us at any future Auction in which case we will be entitled to apply such deposit in payment or part payment, as the case may be, of the Purchase Price of any Lot of which you are the Buyer.
14.2 The Buyer agrees to indemnify us against all liabilities, costs, expenses, damages and losses (including but not limited to any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal costs (calculated on a full indemnity basis) and all other reasonable professional costs and expenses) suffered or incurred by the UKFM as a result of our taking steps under this clause 14 on a full indemnity basis together with interest thereon (after as well as before judgment or order) at the rate specified in clause 14.1.5 from the date upon which we become liable to pay the same until payment by you.
- AUTHORITY TO SELL OR DISPOSE OF AN UNSOLD LOT
15.1 If the Lot is unsold at the Auction, we may for a period of at least 21 days following the Auction enter into an agreement to sell the Lot (at Auction or by private treaty) upon such terms and conditions as we may reasonably consider appropriate. Subject to paragraph 15.2 below, the minimum Sale Proceeds from such a sale will (if a Reserve has been agreed with or accepted by us) be not less than the Sale Proceeds would have been if the Lot had been sold at the Reserve. Subject to paragraph 15.2 below, in the case where the Contract Form states that we are given “discretion” in relation to the Reserve then we may agree to sell the Lot at up to 50% less than the Reserve, and the Sale Proceeds from such a sale will be not less than the Sale Proceeds would have been if the Lot had been sold for an amount equal to 50% of the Reserve.
15.2 Where a Lot has not sold at the Auction and we believe that it could be sold if the Reserve were reduced we will provide written notice to the Seller setting out our suggestion as to a new Reserve. If the Seller does not object to the new Reserve suggested by us within 10 days of deemed receipt of our written notice then the Reserve will be reduced accordingly. If the Seller objects to the new Reserve within the above time period then the Reserve will remain unchanged and our authority to sell the Lot in accordance with these conditions shall continue.
15.3 We will, unless agreed otherwise, be entitled to Commission on the sale of the Lot under paragraph 15.1 and we are entitled to charge a Buyer’s Premium plus VAT to any Buyer of any Lot on any such sale.
15.4 If an unsold Lot has no monetary value, the Seller authorises us to dispose of it in such manner as we think fit. We will give the Seller 7 days notice of such disposal to allow the Seller to collect it if you wish.
16.1 In the event of any fraud by the Seller, or anyone acting on behalf of the Seller, which has induced the Buyer to purchase the Lot, we will be entitled at our discretion and irrespective of whether we are personally liable to the Buyer to act in any reasonable manner which appears to us to be best calculated to compensate the Buyer (which may include but is not limited to repurchasing the Lot from the Buyer) and, so long as UKFM did not act fraudulently, the Seller will indemnify us against all liabilities, costs, expenses, damages and losses (including but not limited to any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal costs (calculated on a full indemnity basis) and all other reasonable professional costs and expenses) suffered or incurred by the UKFM as a result of or in connection with such activity.
16.2 The Seller authorises us to carry out such tests and processes on a Lot as we consider necessary to establish whether this Clause 16 may apply.
- LIMITS ON OUR LIABILITY
17.1 UKFM believes the Seller of each Lot is able to pass good title, and if the Seller is not able to do so, UKFM shall use reasonable endeavours to assist the Buyer in obtaining good title and in pursuing any remedies the Buyer might have against the Seller, but UKFM shall not be bound to initiate litigation and shall not be under any obligation to the Buyer.

- Your rights
8.1 In this Section 8, we have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the rights are complex, and not all of the details have been included in our summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights.
8.2 Your principal rights under data protection law are:
(a) the right to access;
(b) the right to rectification;
(c) the right to erasure;
(d) the right to restrict processing;
(e) the right to object to processing;
(f) the right to data portability;
(g) the right to complain to a supervisory authority; and
(h) the right to withdraw consent.
8.3 You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your personal data and, where we do, access to the personal data, together with certain additional information. That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee.
8.4 You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.
8.5 In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing; you object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law; the processing is for direct marketing purposes; and the personal data have been unlawfully processed. However, there are exclusions of the right to erasure. The general exclusions include where processing is necessary: for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
8.6 In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store your personal data. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.
8.7 You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
8.8 You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.
8.9 To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal data is:
(a) consent; or
(b) that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract,
and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
8.10 If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
8.11 To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.
8.12 You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by written notice to us, in addition to the methods specified in this Section 8.
