This information will be included in the Goods' description in the Catalogue.
    4. Placing Goods with Langton's is an irrevocable offer to sell those Goods subject to clause 8.4 and save that Goods can be withdrawn from sale (at Langton's sole discretion) at no cost to the Seller at any time prior to the finalisation of the Catalogue.

The amount of the Reserve must be agreed with Langton's.
  6. Buyers

    2. Each Lot is sold by the Seller with all faults and defects (if any) and, where sold by Auction, shall be at the Buyer's risk and neither Langton's nor the Seller shall be accountable for any deficiency, damage or loss which may arise after the close of the Auction, except to the extent it arises from Langton's negligence or wilful misconduct.
    3. To the extent permitted by law, Langton's liability under clause 7.1 or 7.2 shall be limited to the Hammer Price or Store Price (as applicable) or (if not sold) the value of the Goods as reasonably determined by Langton's. Except as expressly provided in these Terms, Langton's shall not be responsible to a Seller or Buyer for any other loss, damage, action, cost or expense in respect to the Goods.
    4. Where Langton's is selling Goods on behalf of a Seller, Langton's shall not be responsible for any default by a Seller or Buyer.
  8. Catalogue
    1. Langton's prepares a Catalogue for each Auction detailing the Lots offered at the relevant Auction. This Catalogue is available in electronic and printed form.
    2. Next to each Lot in the Catalogue will be a price estimate. This is an estimate by Langton's of the value of the Lot based upon recent sales. Should a wine being sold not have a recent sale history the price estimate will represent Langton's best estimate of probable realisable value. Langton's does not guarantee the accuracy of any estimate.
    3. All statements in Catalogues, advertisements or brochures prepared by Langton's are statements of opinion and are not, nor are they to be relied upon as, statements of fact. Buyers must make their own assessment of any Lot, including the value of a Lot, before bidding for it.
    4. If a Seller does not accept Langton's description of the Goods to be included in a Catalogue the Seller must withdraw the Goods from sale prior to finalisation of the relevant Catalogue. If the Seller fails to withdraw the Goods by the requisite time, they shall be deemed to have accepted Langton's description and shall have no further right or claim against Langton's in relation to that description.
  9. Ownership of Goods

    The Seller in providing Goods to Langton's for sale warrants to Langton's and any Buyer of those Goods that:

    1. it is the owner of those Goods;
    2. it can and will give good title thereto; and
    3. the Goods are sold free of any encumbrance, mortgage security or lien.
  10. Auction Bidding
    1. If you bid on a Lot you make an irrevocable offer to buy the Lot at the price bid. Bids received by Langton's will be processed by Langton's. Except as otherwise provided in this clause 10, the current highest bid for each Lot will be posted on the Website.
    2. Bids must be received by the closing time on the closing day of the Auction as notified in the Catalogue and on the Website. All time is as specified, being Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) or Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT), Sydney and Melbourne time.
    3. Langton's has the right, at its absolute discretion, to refuse any bid and to advance the bidding (including through vendor bids) as it may determine.
    4. Langton's reserves the right to withdraw any Lot from sale (including after any bid(s) has been made or where a Lot is purchased in the Wine Store prior to any bid) or to combine any two or more Lots at any time.
    5. All prices are in Australian dollars.
    6. A Lot cannot be divided and the successful bidder must take the Lot as offered.
    7. Langton's (using its AutoBid technology) processes and monitors all bids placed on the Website. It only posts bids to the Website when that bid is AUD$1 more than the next highest bidder. If a Buyer is outbid before the close of the bidding for a particular Lot then Langton's, using its AutoBid system, notifies the prospective Buyer(s) by email accordingly and offers the prospective Buyer(s) an opportunity to make another bid(s).
    8. Langton's AutoBid technology ensures that, regardless of the maximum bid the Buyer makes on a given Lot, the Buyer pays only AUD$1 more than the next highest bidder. For example if the Buyer bids AUD$60 and the next highest bid is AUD$40 the Buyer pays only AUD$41.
    9. Except where explicitly permitted by Langton's (in its discretion as auctioneer), a Seller is prohibited from placing bids or arranging to have bids placed on behalf of the Seller in respect to Goods that it offers for sale. A Seller can bid on any other Lots (not owned by it) in the Auction.
    10. An Auction of a Lot may or may not have a Reserve. Whether or not a Lot has a Reserve will not be disclosed. If a Lot has a Reserve, it will not be sold at Auction until a Buyer bids at or above the Reserve. If the Lot is passed in as a result of bidding failing to reach the Reserve, the highest bidder may, in Langton's absolute discretion, be given an exclusive opportunity (available for a period of 30 mins after close of the Auction, after which time it will expire) to purchase the Lot at Reserve.
  11. Wine Store
    1. All Goods placed with Langton's for sale by Auction will be considered for placement in the Wine Store unless otherwise specified by the Seller at the time the Goods are placed with Langton's.
    2. Subject to a Seller electing not to place Goods in the Wine Store in accordance with clause 11.1, Langton's shall determine, in its absolute discretion, whether Goods being sold by Auction will also be placed in the Wine Store.
    3. The price at which Goods shall be listed for sale in the Wine Store shall be reasonably determined by Langton's, having regard to the Reserve and such other factors as Langton's believes are applicable. Langton's shall not be required to disclose to any Seller its reasons for determining a Wine Store listed price.
    4. Any Goods listed for sale both by Auction and in the Wine Store shall be immediately removed from:
    5. the Wine Store upon any Buyer bidding on the Goods in the Auction; or
    6. the Auction upon any Buyer purchasing the Goods in the Wine Store.
  12. Payment
    1. AuctionWhere the total Hammer Price for Lots won by a Buyer at an Auction is $3,000 or less, the Buyer's designated credit card will be charged the amount owed, being the Total Purchase Price (specifically Hammer Price plus Buyer's Premium), immediately following close of the Auction.
    2. Where the total Hammer Price for Lots won by a Buyer at an Auction is over $3,000:
      1. the Buyer must notify Langton's of the Buyer's preferred payment method (bank cheque, direct debit, BPay or designated credit card) within four (4) days following close of the Auction.
      2. Payment must be made by the Buyer to Langton's within 14 days of the close of the relevant Auction. Private cheques are acceptable but Goods will not be released until cheques have been cleared.

    3. If Langton's has to take action to recover monies from a Buyer then the Buyer agrees to pay all Langton's recovery costs (including legal costs) and expenses.
    4. Langton's will deduct Commission (calculated as a percentage of the Hammer Price) from the Hammer Price of the Lot sold and remit the balance of the Hammer Price to the Seller within 30 days of the Auction, subject to receiving payment for the Lot in cleared funds from the Buyer.
    5. Wine StoreFor purchases from the Wine Store, payment of the Total Purchase Price must be made by Buyers to Langton's at the point of sale by designated credit card.
    6. For sales through the Wine Store, Langton's will receive as payment for the Services:
      1. the Commission calculated as a percentage of the Reserve; plus
      2. any amount by which the Store Price exceeds the Reserve,

      which will be deducted from the Store Price and the balance will be remitted to the Seller within 30 days of the date of sale.

  13. GST
    1. To the extent that the supply of services under this Agreement is a taxable supply the Total Purchase Price shall be increased by an amount equal to any GST in respect of those goods or supply.
    2. The Seller or Buyer's obligation to pay GST on the goods or services that are taxable supplies is subject to Langton's providing a tax invoice for those goods or services. All prices quoted are GST inclusive.
    3. In these Terms the expressions 'GST', 'supply', 'taxable supply', and 'tax invoice' have the same meaning as in A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999.
    4. Trade Seller (GST registered)Trade Sellers must supply Langton's with their ABN. Langton's will only collect GST on behalf of the Seller if we are advised at receipt of stock, or notified prior to the printing of our catalogue. It is the responsibility of the Seller to notify us of their GST status prior to our catalogue deadlines.
    5. Trade Buyer (GST registered)Langton's wine listings cater for GST registered Trade Buyers. Langton's online search engine (available at Search/Advanced Search on our website) provides a list of all GST claimable wines on sale at Auction.
    6. Private SellerGST is not charged on the Total Purchase Price. Commission, Buyer's Premium, freight & insurance do attract GST (inclusive in Langton's charges).
    7. Private BuyerGST is not charged on the Total Purchase Price. Commission, Buyer's Premium, freight & insurance do attract GST (inclusive in Langton's charges).
  14. Pick Up and Delivery
    1. Only selected Goods, as specified on the Website, may be picked up by the Buyer from Langton's premises. Where pick up is available, Buyers must advise Langton's through the Website at the time of purchase whether they wish to pick up the Goods or have them delivered.
    2. Except where Buyers pick up the Goods (if available), Langton's will deliver the Goods to an address in Australia specified by the Buyer. Delivery fees are specified on the Website. International clients need to contact Langton's to make shipping and insurance arrangements.
    3. A Buyer of Goods purchased at Auction may request Langton's to hold the Goods for up to 21 days to consolidate the shipping of those Goods with other purchases made by the Buyer through the Website. Unless such a request is made, or where Langton's does not consent to such request, all Goods must leave Langton's premises (whether by pick up (where available) or by delivery) within 21 days of the Auction.
    4. Without limiting clause 14.3, where Goods remain at Langton's premises more than 21 days after the Auction (except where shipping of the Goods is delayed as a result of Langton's negligence) the Buyer shall be liable to pay storage fees as specified on the Website.
    5. Buyers can elect at the time of purchase, for an additional fee (specified on the Website), to have delivery covered by Langton's Delivery Guarantee. If no Delivery Guarantee is purchased, risk in the Goods shall remain with the Buyer from the time they leave Langton's premises.
    6. Under the Delivery Guarantee, subject to clause 14.7, Langton's will replace the goods or refund the Buyer (at Langton's option) for the value (based on, and not more than, the Hammer Price or Store Price paid for the Goods) of Goods lost or damaged during delivery from Langton's premises to the Buyer's address. The refund will only be payable upon Langton's receiving satisfactory proof of the loss or damage. If requested, the Buyer must promptly return damaged Goods to Langton's and provide such other information as Langton's may reasonably request to assess the loss or damage.
    7. During periods of hot weather Langton's may in its discretion hold shipments, and will otherwise only do so where the Buyer has expressly requested Langton's to hold shipping of their Goods. While Langton's will endeavour to make prompt delivery without compromising the condition of the wine, Langton's Delivery Guarantee does not cover heat damage. In addition, Langton's shall not be liable under the Delivery Guarantee for any loss arising from the Buyer failing to provide Langton's with a correct address and delivery details, or for Langton's otherwise delivering in accordance with the Buyer's instructions (such as leaving the wine outside unattended premises).
  15. Seller Default

    If the Seller does not own the Goods and or have clear title to the Goods and/or provides misleading and deceptive information about the Goods to Langton's then, without prejudice to any other rights or remedies Langton's may have:

    1. if the Goods have not been sold, Langton's may withdraw the Goods from sale and return them to the Seller upon payment by the Seller of any and all reasonable costs of Langton's associated with obtaining and assessing the Goods for sale and returning them to the Seller;
    2. if the Goods have been sold but not delivered to the Buyer, Langton's may terminate the sale contract with the Buyer, refund to the Buyer any monies paid by the Buyer and return the Goods to the Seller upon payment by the Seller to Langton's of any and all reasonable costs of Langton's associated with obtaining and assessing the Goods for sale and returning them to the Seller; and
    3. if the Goods have been delivered to the Buyer, where possible Langton's may recover the Goods and refund to the Buyer any monies paid by the Buyer. The Buyer shall have no claim upon Langton's in respect to the Goods save for receiving the refund of any monies paid for the Goods.
  16. Buyer Default

    If a Buyer fails to pay for any Goods within 30 days of the close of Auction or the date of purchase from the Wine Store, Langton's shall, without further notice to the Buyer, and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies it may have, be entitled to exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies:

    1. seek recovery from the Buyer for the cost of the Goods, interest costs, expenses and damages for breach of contract;
    2. rescind the sale of that or any other Lots sold to the Buyer;
    3. resell the Lot or cause it to be resold by public or private sale. Any deficiency in the price from such resale together with the full costs incurred in connection with the resale, shall be payable to Langton's by the Buyer;
    4. store the Lot or cause it to be stored, whether at its own premises or elsewhere, at the sole expense of the Buyer and release the Lot only after payment in full of the Total Purchase Price, the accrued cost of removal, storage and insurance and all other costs incurred in connection with the Lot;
    5. charge the Buyer interest on the Total Purchase Price at the rate of 2% above the 90 day bank bill swap rate published by the Reserve Bank of Australia for each day that it remains unpaid for more than 30 days from date of the close of Auction or the date of purchase from the Wine Store;
    6. retain that and any other Lot sold to the Buyer and release the same only after payment of the Total Purchase Price; and
    7. set off any amount due or becoming due to the Buyer against settlement of the Total Purchase Price and costs and expenses and Langton's shall be entitled to a lien on any property of the Buyer which is in Langton's' possession until all monies owing to Langton's by the Buyer have been paid in full.
  17. Member Default

    If Langton's considers that a Member has or may have breached these Terms, without further notice to the Member and at its absolute discretion, Langton's may immediately suspend his/her membership rights including the right to bid at Auctions or buy from the Wine Store.

  18. Warranties – Goods sold by Auction
    1. Langton's cannot readily ascertain how well Goods have been cellared. Goods to be sold by Auction are described as accurately as can reasonably be ascertained by Langton's at the time, however Buyers of older wine must make appropriate allowances for natural variations of ullage and the condition of corks and labels.
    2. Subject to the provisions of clause 20, Langton's, its employees and agents shall not be responsible for the correctness of any statement as to authorship, origin, date, age, attribution or provenance of any Goods, nor for any other errors of description or for any faults or defects in any Goods sold by Auction and no warranty whatsoever is given by Langton's, its employees or agents in respect of any such Goods.
    3. Buyers acknowledge and accept that the consumer guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law, including guarantees as to acceptable quality, fitness for purpose and accurate description, do not apply to Goods sold by Auction. Buyers therefore accept these risks and, except as set out in clause 20, Langton's shall have no liability to any person for any loss or damage suffered by any person in relation to Goods sold by Auction.
  19. Warranties – Goods purchased in the Wine Store or otherwise from Langton's
    1. Goods purchased in the Wine Store or otherwise from Langton's (other than by Auction) come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. Buyers are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. Buyers are also entitled to have the Goods replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
    2. Where a failure does not amount to a major failure, Langton's are entitled to choose between providing the Buyer with a repair, replacement or refund.
    3. To obtain compensation, Buyers would need to provide documentary evidence of the loss or damage suffered, and documentary evidence that such loss or damage was a reasonably foreseeable consequence of a failure by Langton's to comply with a consumer guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law. Such evidence may include photographs, statutory declarations, receipts or reports (e.g. from your doctor), depending on the loss or damage.
    4. Buyers' rights to a remedy under the Australian Consumer Law are not limited by a defined time. However, the Australian Consumer Law does recognise that the relevant time period can vary from product to product, depending on factors such as the nature of the product and the price. Langton's adopts the same approach. As such, the type of remedy we will offer Buyers may vary depending on the age and history of the Goods and how long it takes the Buyer to return the Goods to us. At Langton's, we will always take a fair and reasonable approach.
  20. Langton's Undertaking
    1. In addition to a Buyer's rights under the Australian Consumer Law, if within 28 days of the date of dispatch from Langton's premises of any Lot or Goods (as applicable):
      1. Langton's receives notice in writing from a Buyer of any Lot or Goods (as applicable) that in his/her view the Lot or Goods were at the time of the sale short or ullaged and that the Lot was not so described in the Catalogue or the Goods were not so described in the Wine Store; and
      2. within fourteen days of such notice, the Lot or Goods (as applicable) are returned to Langton's in the same condition (as reasonably determined by Langton's) as at the date of the Auction or purchase; and
      3. the Buyer satisfies Langton's that the Lot or Goods (as applicable) were not correctly described as specified in paragraph (a) and the Buyer is able to transfer good title to the Lot or Goods,

        if Langton's is satisfied that the product is materially different to the description, Langton's may set aside the sale and either replace or refund to the Buyer (at Langton's discretion) the amount paid by the Buyer in respect of the Lot or Goods.

        These undertakings do not apply to wines older than 15 years.

    2. A Buyer shall not be entitled to claim under clause 20.1 for more than the amount paid by him/her for the Lot and, in particular, shall have no claim for any other loss or damage, whether direct or indirect, suffered by him/her.
  21. Limitation
    1. Without excluding, restricting or modifying the rights and remedies to which you may be entitled under the Australian Consumer Law or any implied warranties under the consumer protection laws in the States and Territories of Australia, or Langton's liabilities under those provisions:
      1. Langton's excludes all other guarantees and implied terms and warranties relating to the Website or the subject matter of these Terms and Conditions; and
      2. to the extent permitted by law, Langton's will not be liable for indirect or consequential loss arising from or connected to the Website or these Terms and Conditions, whether in contract, tort, under any statute or otherwise (including, without limitation, for loss of revenue, loss of profits, failure to realise expected profits or savings, loss or corruption of data and any other commercial or economic loss of any kind) unless such loss arises as a result of Langton's own negligence or wilful misconduct.
    2. To the extent permitted by law, Langton's liability for loss or damage of any kind arising out of the Website or these Terms and Conditions or in connection with the relationship established by it is reduced to the extent (if any) that you cause or contribute to the loss or damage. This reduction applies whether our liability is in contract, tort (including negligence), under any statute or otherwise.
  22. Website
    1. Langton's, like all online businesses, is dependent on third parties for its infrastructure and services. Langton's therefore gives no warranty that continuous access to the Website will be available at all times.
    2. While every effort will be made to rectify the services under Langton's control and the services controlled by Langton's third party suppliers in a timely manner, Langton's takes no responsibility for any losses incurred as a result of being unable to bid at Auction or access the Website.
    3. Should a technological issue with the Website prevent the fair and accurate conduct of an Auction, Langton's may at its sole discretion extend the Auction beyond its advertised closing and close it at a time and date between at least 24 hours and no more than 7 days after the original closing time and date. Should Langton's amend the closing time under this clause, it will notify relevant bidders by email and on the Website.
  23. Privacy
    1. Our Privacy Policy forms part of Langton's Terms of trading. It is available separately and can be read by clicking 'Privacy' located on the bottom margin of the Website (adjacent to Terms & Conditions).
    2. Where a member has opted in to receiving marketing communications from Langton's, Langton's may use personal information a Member has provided to send the Member information about Langton's products and services (including via electronic means), and may disclose the information to its related bodies corporate, agencies and contractors (including call centers, advertising agencies and direct mail houses) that Langton's engages for that purpose.
  24. Governing Law

    These Terms and any contract including them shall be governed by the laws of the State of New South Wales.

  25. Changes to Terms and Conditions

    Langton's reserves the right to change, suspend or terminate these Terms at any time. Langton's will give advance notice of any such circumstance on our Website. Where we change the Langton's Terms, an updated copy of them will be available on our Website or by telephoning our Call Centre.  Continuing to use the Website or transacting with Langton's after the period of advance notice has expired will be deemed acceptance of the amended Terms.

  26. General

    2. The words include, including, for example or such as are not to be interpreted as words of limitation, and when such words introduce an example, they do not limit the meaning of the words to which the example relates, or to examples of a similar kind.
    3. All communications shall be by notice in writing and sent to Langton's and the Seller or Buyer at their addresses, facsimile numbers and email addresses as advised from time to time. A notice shall be deemed received when the sender hand delivers it or (if by fax or email) the receiver receives confirmation of receipt and in any event within 24 hours of sending the notice.
    4. No waiver or failure or delay to act by Langton's in respect to any default on the part of Buyer or Seller in the performance of these terms and conditions shall prevent actioning that or any other default by the Seller or Buyer.
    5. If any provision of these Terms is deemed to be unlawful or unenforceable it is to be severed from these Terms and all other remaining provisions remain in force.
