The Valuation does not include costs associated with sales, commissions and taxes (including capital gains tax, customs duty, excise duty, value added tax or sales tax) which may be applicable or become payable in connection with the sale or transport of an item. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the Valuation is based on a preliminary examination of the delivered photograph of an item, without physical examination, cleaning, renovation, detailed examination or disassembly as well as without examination of the context in which the item is embedded, further testing or analysis. The valuation constitutes an opinion, not a fact.
The Company aims at preparing the Valuation within 2 working days, in Poland, from the submission of the request by the Client, provided that all information is submitted not later than at 12:00 a.m. on the working day or on the following day. In the event that the period of 2 working days is exceeded, the Client is not entitled to a refund.

In the Valuation, the Company makes no representations or warranties that the item will be sold in a private or public auction shortly after the Valuation or that it will subsequently reach the amount from the Valuation. In the Valuation, the Company does not guarantee or represent that the item being the subject of the Valuation is safe, efficient or suitable for the purpose for which it was intended.
The Valuation remains covered by the Company’s copyright and is prepared exclusively for the Client, and may not be used by any other person or disclosed to third parties (who are not Client’s professional advisers), or duplicated, or published in any form without the prior written consent of the Company. The Client shall indemnify and hold harmless, for the period of ten years, the Company, its affiliates, employees and agents against any and all liabilities and expenses incurred by the Client as a result of any breach by the Client of the foregoing obligation or as a result any third party claims relating to the Valuation.
