Conditions of Sale
If you use the Payment Service, you will be required to provide information regarding your credit card or other payment instrument. You represent and warrant to O'Gallerie that such information is true and that you are authorized to use the payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with any changes (for example, a change in your billing address or credit card expiration date) that may occur. You agree to pay O'Gallerie the amount that is specified for the item(s) you are purchasing in accordance with the applicable terms and conditions herein. If after three (3) business days you fail to pay for the items you win in full, O'Gallerie reserves the right to charge your credit card on file the entire amount due (including the hammer price, buyer's premium, all applicable taxes and other charges.)
In the event you file a chargeback with your credit card facility to reverse or invalidate a processed payment, O'Gallerie and WePay have the right to contest any such chargeback in accordance with the WePay Terms. We and/or WePay may request necessary information from you to contest the chargeback. If the chargeback is contested successfully, your payment will be released to WePay. If a chargeback dispute is resolved in your favor, you will recover the chargeback amount through your credit card facility.
As stated in our Terms & Conditions, condition information is not included in our lot descriptions. If you are unable to personally inspect the property, it is your responsibility as a prospective buyer to inquire as to the condition of a specific lot before bidding. Condition information can normally be made available, upon request, within one business day. Any condition information made available is done so as a courtesy. It is only an opinion and should not be considered to be a statement of fact. O'Gallerie accepts no responsibility for any error or omission.
Although shipping arrangements are the sole responsibility of the buyer, O'Gallerie offers packing & shipping services via UPS only, to destinations within the U. S. only, for a nominal fee. An outside shipping company would need to be used for items that are either too large to be sent via UPS or that need to reach destinations outside the U. S. We strongly encourage prospective buyers to obtain shipping quotes prior to bidding. Please note that we do not ship ammunition, unset gems, stamps, gold/silver bars, coins/currency/bullion or anything animal related. For more information, please refer to our Terms & Conditions.

BIDDING AT THIS AUCTION, WHETHER IN PERSON, BY AGENT, ORDER BID, TELEPHONE, INTERNET OR OTHER MEANS, CONSTITUTES YOUR ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND ACCEPTANCE OF THESE "CONDITIONS OF SALE".
Your Bid is a Contract:
Please bid only if you will honor any purchases that you make. All State and Federal laws will be observed regarding the sale of firearms. Those who are outside the United States are not eligible to purchase firearms. We strongly encourage prospective bidders to familiarize themselves with the firearms laws in their home state prior to bidding. Since we are a licensed firearms dealer in Oregon, Oregon residents can take delivery of firearms purchases in person without a Federal Firearms License (FFL). Oregon residents who do not have a current FFL are subject to a $12 fee for a required background check. Those who are not residents of Oregon and do not have an FFL will likely need to have an FFL holder in their state take delivery of firearms purchases on their behalf. In addition to the required background check fee, FFL holders normally charge a fee for providing this service. For a searchable database of nationwide FFL holders, please visit http://www.gunauction.com/help/fflnetwork.cfm. In many cases, firearms can only be shipped to Federal Firearms License holders.
