M. MISCELLANEOUS M1. You may not assign either the benefit or burden of this agreement. M2. Bonhams’ failure or delay in enforcing or exercising any power or right under this agreement will not operate or be deemed to operate as a waiver of our rights under it except to the extent of any express waiver given to you in writing. Any such waiver will not affect our ability subsequently to enforce any right arising under this agreement. M3. If either party to this agreement is prevented from performing that party’s respective obligations under this agreement by circumstances beyond its reasonable control or if performance of its obligations would by reason of such circumstances give rise to a significantly increased financial cost to it, that party will not, for so long as such circumstances prevail, be required to perform such obligations. This paragraph does not apply to the obligations imposed on you by Sections D (Registration), F (Bidding), G (Warranties) and K (Payment). M4.

P. EU CONSUMER CANCELLATION RIGHTS P1. Right to Cancel the Purchase. If you are a Consumer in accordance with the EU Consumer Rights Directive and habitually reside in the European Union, and the Seller is not a Consumer (as identified in the Online Sales Catalogue), you have the right to cancel the contract for the purchase of a Lot, without giving any reason. Sellers who are Consumers will be identified as private individuals in the entry for the Lot. P2. The cancellation period will expire 14 calendar days from the day after the date on which you, or a third party (other than the carrier and indicated by you) acquires, physical possession of the Lot. P3. To exercise the right to cancel you must inform Bonhams, who are offering to sell the Lot either as agent for the Seller or as the owner of the Lot, of your decision to cancel this contract by a clear statement (e.g. by post or e-mail). You may use the model cancellation NTB/ONLINE/TERMS&CONDITIONS/V1/4.2020 forms set out in paragraph P6 below, but this is not obligatory. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired. P4. Effects of cancellation (i) If you cancel the contract, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery but not any extra costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us; or any import duties we incur as a result of you returning the Lot to us. (ii) We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any Lots supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you. (iii) We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than: 14 calendar days after the day we receive back from you any Lot supplied; or (if earlier) 14 calendar days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the Lot. (iv) We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise (but reimbursement will always be to an account solely in your name); in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the Lot back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the Lot, whichever is earliest. (v) You shall send back the Lot or return it over to us at such address as we may specify for the purpose, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 calendar days from the day after on which you communicate your cancellation from these Conditions of Sale to us. (vi) The deadline is met if you send back the Lot before the period of 14 calendar days has expired. (vii) You will have to bear the direct costs of returning the Lot. If we arranged for the Lot to be delivered we Estimate that the cost returning the Lot by the same means is likely to be similar to the cost of delivery, but it is not possible for us to be more accurate as to this cost due to the many variables involved in our worldwide business model and the means by which a return might be made. (viii) You are only liable for any diminished value of the Lot resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Lot. P5. Right to cancel the contract for services. If you are a Consumer in accordance with the EU Consumer Rights Directive and habitually live in the European Union, and we have notified you that you are purchasing the Lot from a Consumer, you have the right to cancel the contract for services Bonhams provides to you in connection with your purchase of a Lot, but not to cancel the contract for the purchase of the Lot itself. Bonhams’ services consist of: the opportunity to participate in the Online Sale, to be introduced to Lots for Sale which may be of interest, to view images and other information about such Lots, and any delivery service for any Lot which you purchase and which is to be delivered pursuant to an agreement with Bonhams). (i) You have the right to cancel the contract for this service within 14 calendar days from the day of conclusion of the contract, without giving any reason. (ii) The cancellation period will expire after 14 calendar days from the day of the conclusion of the contract. (iii) To exercise the right to cancel you must inform the Bonhams company which offers to sell the Lot either as agent for the Seller or as the owner of the Lot, of your decision to cancel this service by a clear statement (e.g. by post or e-mail). You may use the model cancellation form set out in paragraph P7 below, but it is not obligatory. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired. (iv) You request Bonhams immediately to begin the performance of its services (including any agreed arrangements for delivery) during the cancellation period described above. If you cancel this contract, we will reimburse to you any payments received from you in respect of the service. However, since you have requested us to begin the performance of services during the cancellation period, you shall pay us an amount which is in proportion to what has been performed until you have communicated us your cancellation from this contract, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
