9. Import and Export Regulations Regarding Tangible Property
Most countries regulate the importation and exportation of tangible property. Many countries require a declaration of export for property that is leaving the country. Additionally, most countries require an Import Declaration at the time of customs clearance of property into that country. Upon import, these countries may impose duties, other taxes and/or restrictions on the property. Many countries also prohibit or restrict importation or exportation of property containing ivory, tortoiseshell, whalebone, and/or products derived from other endangered or protected species, and require special licenses or permits in order to import or export such property. Other countries regulate movement of antiquities and cultural items, which in some cases are subject to a right of pre-emption or compulsory purchase by the country from which they are to be exported. It is the responsibility of the seller to ensure that the item is properly and lawfully exported from the country in which it is located. It is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure that the property is properly imported into the buyer's country. If you participate in the auction or commerce portions of the Website, and, as a result, purchase property that you plan to ship to another country, you agree that you are responsible for familiarizing yourself with and complying with any and all applicable rules and regulations.
THE COMPANY MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY AND ACCEPTS NO LIABILITY WHATSOEVER TO THE SELLER, THE BUYER, OR ANY THIRD PARTY IN RESPECT OF THE AVAILABILITY OR ISSUANCE OF VALID IMPORT AND EXPORT PERMITS OR THE EXISTENCE OR EXERCISE OF PRE-EMPTION OR OTHER RIGHTS TO PURCHASE BY GOVERNMENTAL OR REGULATORY AUTHORITIES ANYWHERE.
