SALES TAX: 7% Sales Tax will be added to the final bid on each auction lot that is shipped to a Florida address or picked up from the Festival offices.
WINE LOTS: Wine Lots are described in this catalog as correctly as can be ascertained at the time of printing. Buyers of wine lots must make appropriate allowances for natural variations of ullage, conditions of cork and wine, other consequences of age and storage. No returns will be accepted and no refunds permitted.
TRAVEL LOTS: It is the buyer's responsibility to make his or her own travel reservations. It is strongly suggested that you plan your travel three to four months ahead of time. Taxes on Travel Lots are the responsibility of the winning bidder. Only those services listed in the lot description are included. Some restrictions may apply, and there may be some travel blackout dates. Lost or stolen travel vouchers cannot be replaced. Winner is responsible for shipping charges.
RESTAURANT/HOTEL PACKAGES/CERTIFICATES: If the item purchased is a casualty of the economy (i.e. business goes out-of-business) it is not the responsibility of the Festival to replace the item or refund the money.
PAYMENT: Each buyer must pay the full purchase price of each Lot purchased, including any applicable taxes, at the close of the auction. Payments may be made with MasterCard - The Official Festival Card, American Express or Visa. Winners with declined cards will have 5 business days to provide an alternate form of payment- after that time, auction lots will be offered to the next highest bidder.
AGE REQUIREMENT: Alcohol purchasers must be 21 or over. The Festival makes every effort to ensure that alcohol is not delivered to any individual under the age of 21. Winner is responsible for ensuring that an individual over the age of 21 is present at the shipping address to receive and sign for the delivery and is not intoxicated at the time of delivery. Winner also agrees that any alcohol won from a Festival Auction is for personal consumption and not for resale.
