12.00 PRE-USED (COLLECTABLES)
Many items purchased from this website will be in pre-used condition which excludes them from our normal returns policy, they generally being of some age which precludes them from being in perfect condition.
To assist prospective buyers we have replicated a widely recognised grading standard which is used to categorise items and with the help of expert opinion against each individual item we provide what we consider to be a fair and honest description which is in turn supported by a series of photographs taken from different angles. It must be understood however that any photograph is for guidance only and due to the variable pixel denomination of monitors/screens on which they may be viewed they should not be relied upon to determine the tone or colour of any item or to reveal any imperfections.
The wording and expression relating to the condition are used to describe our opinions of the items and will not necessarily detail in full each and every blemish or minor defect. Any description given, whether written of orally does not imply that any particular item is free from defect, nor does the reference to a particular defect imply the absence of any other.
All items listed under this caption (pre-used) are sold on an ‘as is’ basis subject to all faults, imperfections and errors of description. Herod Models provide no guarantee to the buyer only in the case of fakes or forgeries as explained in Clause 13.00.
CAVEAT EMPTOR: The buyer must satisfy himself as to the description, genuineness, condition, age, authenticity and value of each item and shall not rely on images or upon any statement made by Herod Models or any of its representatives or agents.
Private viewing arrangements can be made via the contact us form on this website.
13.00 FAKES OR FORGERIES
Any sale will be cancelled and the amount paid refunded to the buyer if an item sold by us under the caption of ‘pre-used’ is found to be a fake or forgery.
We shall not however refund any amount if either:
a) The website description at the date of the purchase corresponded to the generally accepted opinion of scholars or experts at the time, or fairly indicated that there was a conflict of opinions.
b) It can be demonstrated that the lot is a forgery only by means of either a scientific process not generally accepted for use until after the date of publication on this website or a process which at the date of the sale was unreasonably expensive or impracticable or likely to have caused damage to the item in question.
Furthermore, the buyer should note that a refund can only be obtained if the following conditions are met:
a) Within 28 days of the purchase date the buyer gives notice to Herod Models either in writing or by completing and returning the returns email form to be found on this site that the item purchased by him/her is a fake or forgery (as herein defined);
b) The buyer returns the lot in the same condition as it was at the time of the purchase accompanied by written proof of fake/forgery and a copy of the original invoice; and
c) The buyer proves to Herod Models’ reasonable satisfaction that the item in question is a fake or forgery and that he/she is able to transfer a good title thereto free from any liens, charges or encumbrances; and
d) The buyer demonstrates to Herod models’ reasonable satisfaction that the item alleged by him/her to be a fake or forgery is the actual item purchase by him/her from Herod Models.
In no circumstance will Herod Models be required to pay the buyer any more than the amount paid by him/her when making the original purchase and the buyer shall have no claim for any interest.
The benefit of this return condition is not transferrable and is solely for the benefit of the person or company to whom the original invoice was made out by us in respect of the original sale and who has remained the owner of the item without ever disposing of any interest in it to any third party.
Herod Models shall be entitled to rely on any scientific or other process to establish that the lot is not a Fake or Forgery whether or not this causes damage to the item.
