2. AUCTION RULES
· Placing a Bid. BIDS CANNOT BE WITHDRAWN. Bids made in error or by someone else using your account are your responsibility and cannot be withdrawn. Seller is not liable for any Website, internet, or other failures that interfere with the placement or receipt of any bid. Bids may usually be placed until the auction time-period expires. Seller has the discretion to withdraw a lot from auction at any time prior to accepting a winning bid.
· Winning Bid. Seller determines the winning bidder in Seller’s sole discretion, and Seller has the authority to resolve any disputes between bidders. The winning bidder is the highest bid accepted by Seller. Seller may in its sole discretion exclude any bidder or disregard any bid and instead accept the next highest bid as the highest bid. The online display showing the highest bid does not represent acceptance by Seller or rejection of earlier bids – no bids have been rejected by Seller until Seller determines the winning bid.
· Reserve Prices and Bidding by Seller/Consignor. Seller and/or any consignor reserve the right to bid on any lot(s). Unless stated otherwise, any lot may be subject to a reserve price hidden from bidders. Seller and/or consignor may determine that an auction has no winner if no bid exceeds the reserve price. Seller and/or consignor may open bidding and continue to bid up to the amount of the reserve price, either by placing consecutive bids or placing bids in response to other bidders. Nothing in the listing shall be construed to indicate a reserve price.
· IN CASE OF ERROR: In case of an error by Seller or the auctioneer, Seller may in its sole discretion cancel the sale and relist the Lot. You indemnify and hold harmless Seller and Consignor from and against any losses, damages, claims, and legal proceedings that may arise from or relate to the Seller’s application of a reserve price, withdrawal of any lot, determination of the winning bid, relisting, or resolution of any dispute between bidders.
· Prohibited Bidding Practices. Bids must be good faith offers to purchase, made by competent persons financially capable of payment, and made by persons not prohibited by law from purchasing or obtaining the items offered for sale. Bids that violate these requirements are prohibited and may result in exclusion from auctions, cancellation of your account, and legal action. Engaging in a prohibited bidding practice shall constitute confession of fraud and liability for actual, consequential, exemplary, and punitive damages.
· Account Security. All registered accounts require that at least one natural person is listed as party jointly and severally liable for all bids and other liabilities and obligations without the requirement that remedies be exhausted against any other person. By registering for an auction and/or placing a bid, you accept these terms. MAINTAIN REASONABLE SECURITY MEASURES. DO NOT GIVE OTHERS YOUR PASSWORD. DO NOT ALLOW OTHERS TO USE AN ACCOUNT YOU CREATE. YOU ARE PERSONALLY LIABLE FOR THEIR BIDS AND ALL SUBSEQUENT LIABILITIES AND OBLIGATIONS. Please contact Seller immediately if you have concerns about unauthorized or erroneous use of your Account.
By using Seller’s pages or services, viewing an auction, registering for an auction, bidding on an auction, “following” seller, or completing any transaction, you represent and warrant that you shall not make any disparaging or negative statements, whether spoken, written, or in electronic, text, audio, visual, social media, online review, or other method or forum, about the Seller, its consignors, Auction House, Seller’s Auction Rules or other procedures, or any lots or items offered for auction. You agree that doing so would constitute disparagement and intentional interference with Seller’s business relationships, which would irreparably harm Seller such that no remedy at law would be adequate, and Seller would be entitled to temporary, preliminary, and injunctive relief, without bond, in addition to damages, costs, and attorney fees, in any court of competent jurisdiction and without waiving Seller’s right to compel arbitration. This provision shall not be construed to prevent you from communicating with legal counsel, commencing legal proceedings consistent with this Contract, or providing information to a government agency.
IN ANY DISPUTE WITH SELLER, YOU WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. YOU ALSO WAIVE THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY PROCEEDING AGAINST SELLER AS A MEMBER OR REPRESENTATIVE OF A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, EXCEPT WHERE WAIVER IS PROHIBITED BY LAW OR DETERMINED BY A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION TO BE CONTRARY TO PUBLIC POLICY. IN ANY CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO RECOVER COSTS AND ATTORNEY FEES; FURTHERMORE, NO CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION SHALL BE ARBITRATED IF THE COST WOULD EXCEED THE COST OF ARBITRATION OF A SINGLE MEMBER’S CLAIM.
You must submit any dispute you have to Seller via email at: email@example.com, within six months (180 days) of the transaction. Seller will make a determination about your dispute within thirty (30) days based on the information you provide. If you do not accept Seller’s decision, you must email that same address to demand arbitration within thirty (30) days after the Seller’s decision. Your demand must explain in detail why Seller’s determination is unsatisfactory and must clearly describe the amount or resolution that you demand. Any dispute you bring against Seller, or which Seller submits to arbitration, must be resolved by binding arbitration before an impartial Arbitrator selected by Seller and held in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association and the Florida Arbitration Code, applying the law of Florida, except those regarding conflict of laws.
You agree not to initiate any chargeback dispute against Seller except as authorized by law. You acknowledge that a chargeback dispute not authorized by law is fraud and will cause substantial harm to Seller. You agree that if you initiate such a chargeback dispute you will be liable to Seller for liquidated damages in the amount of $5,000, not as a penalty but as a reasonable estimate of the unknown costs, attorney fees, and other expenses Seller will incur in responding to your dispute. You agree that at the conclusion of such a dispute, regardless of outcome, Seller may enforce these liquidated damages in any court of competent jurisdiction, without waiving Seller’s right to enforce arbitration. You understand and agree that you bear all risks of diligence and evaluation of lots and items purchased, all risks of loss or damage after fall of hammer (or expiration of time in online auction), all risk for use of your registered account, and all other risks assigned to you herein or by law. Attempting to use a chargeback dispute to avoid your contract obligations or allocation of risks is fraud.
SELLER SHALL BE AWARDED COSTS AND ATTORNEY FEES IN ANY ACTION TO ENFORCE THESE DISPUTE PROCEDURES OR LIQUIDATED DAMAGES.
