An auction listing (“Auction Listing”) is an announcement for the sale of a product, which shall act as a platform where buyers can bid on the product, with the highest bidder generally, but with exceptions, being awarded the product. Sellers may place an Auction Listing, which may include a product listing, a minimum bid that will be accepted by the seller, product transfer information, the time period for which the bid will be open and the seller’s preferred payment method. If a buyer would like to bid on the product, the buyer may place a bid that is greater than the highest previous bid, by entering the price they would pay for the product. At any time the buyer may enter a new bid with a greater purchase price. A buyer may bid as many times as he likes until the close of the Auction Listing.
A bid shall be considered a binding and irrevocable offer to purchase. This means that if You win an auction or are awarded the product, You must purchase the product for the price You bid. You must conduct any investigations or due diligence that You deem necessary or recommended to evaluate the Auction Listing, the fairness of the price, the quality of the product being offered in the Auction Listing, and the reliability of the proposed seller, before submitting Your bid. You will not be allowed to renegotiate the purchase price, cancel the agreement or decline to purchase the product. By placing a bid, You are agreeing to comply with any and all of the terms conveyed by the Seller in connection with the Auction Listing, even if these terms were not dictated by the Seller in the Auction Listing, but were later articulated by the Seller. These terms may include, but are not limited to, all specifics regarding payment including, without limitation, whether or not all or part of the payment must be paid immediately after the Auction Listing closes and/or prior to shipment; the time-frame within which payment is to be received by Seller; shipping terms; and any other terms that Seller dictates in the Auction Listing. By placing a bid, You are accepting all the terms of the Auction Listing.
Before placing a bid or agreeing to buy a product, You should carefully review all of the seller’s terms contained within that Listing and understand the product description. Many disputes occur because the parties misunderstand what is being transferred. In order to prevent any confusion it is important to carefully review and understand the entire Listing. If You do not understand part of an Auction Listing or have a question about the Auction Listing, You should contact the seller before placing a bid.
As set forth above, by entering a bid, You are agreeing to pay the amount You have bid and are deemed to have accepted any terms and conditions listed in the Auction Listing. If You disagree with a term or cannot comply with one of the terms listed in the Auction Listing, You should not place a bid. Without limiting Company’s general right to terminate a Member, You acknowledge that, as a buyer, Your Membership Account may be suspended or terminated if You fail to pay for a product or otherwise meet the standards articulated in an Auction Listing.
You may not retract a bid. When You place a bid, You form a binding, irrevocable offer to buy the product.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, You acknowledge that the Seller has the unfettered right to accept or reject a bid, including, without limitation, the highest bid. In other words, Sellers shall not be obligated to finalize a sale pursuant to an Auction Listing, including with the highest bidder. Moreover, Sellers may elect to extend the Auction Listing and/or terminate it early. Sellers may also reject a bid and relist the product that is subject to that bid in the same or different Auction Listing. You hereby consent to the same, even if it prejudices Your rights to purchase the product featured in the Auction Listing.
You shall not knowingly bid on an item You are selling, or bid on an item Listed by family members, employees, agents, representatives or any companies owned or controlled by You. You should not assist, request or entice others to do so on Your behalf. Company may elect, in its sole discretion, to terminate or suspend your Membership Account and use of the Site if You are found to have placed a Fraudulent Bid (as defined below). Without limitation, Company considers a bid on a product made with the intent of trying to raise the selling price of the product without the intention to purchase the product and to be a fraudulent bid (“Fraudulent Bid”). Further, these types of bids are illegal in many places and may result in criminal charges.
A classified listing (“Classified Listing”) is an announcement for the sale of a product, which shall be used to connect buyers and sellers. A buyer may review the Classified Listing; and if he is interested in purchasing the product described in the Classified Listing, contact the seller. A seller may include within the Classified Listing a description of the product, a price for the product, the preferred payment method and a way to contact the seller. Once contacted, the buyer and seller will negotiate the terms and conditions of the sale of the product. It will be up to the buyer and seller to come to an agreement regarding the terms of the sale. Until the buyer and seller mutually determine that an agreement to purchase the product has been reached, neither party is bound to purchase or sell the product. Buyer acknowledges that a seller may negotiate with several buyers at once.
Buyer may send any questions or inquiries to the sellers regarding any Auction Listings or Classified Listings (collectively herein “Listings”) through the Site. You, in your capacity as a buyer may select to have its question or inquiry displayed publicly or privately. If You select to have Your question or inquiry displayed publicly, You acknowledge and agree that the question or inquiry and the seller’s response to same may be displayed on the Website in connection with the Listing.
Company is not a party to any Auction Listings or Classified Listings or any of the resulting transactions. As such, Company will not assist in resolving any disputes between the parties. Your participation in the Site or in purchasing an item through a Listing is at Your own risk, and is solely between You and the seller. Company does not endorse, warrant, guarantee or assume responsibility for any product or service advertised or offered by a seller or any third party, including, without limitation through a Listing. Company shall not be a party to, or in any way responsible for, monitoring transactions between You and other Site users. Moreover, and without limitation, Company assumes, and has, no liability, obligation or responsibility for any part of such communications, including without limitation, where a Site user perpetuates fraud through a Listing. You hereby waive and release Company from any and all claims that You may have against Company arising out of a Listing or other communication or business dealing with another Site user. Without limitation, and without limiting any limitation of liabilities otherwise provided herein, You acknowledge and agree that Company shall have no liability whatsoever for any damages, direct, special, incidental, special, treble, exemplary, indirect, consequential or otherwise, loss of profits, anticipated revenue, savings, clients or goodwill, or other economic loss arising out of Your response to a Listing or Your other use of the Site.

In the event that You are located outside the United States, You acknowledge and agree that You, and not Company, are responsible for ensuring that any products or services that You may purchase through or in connection with the Site are permitted to be imported into the country in which You are located.
Company will not assist You with the negotiations of a transaction or help You resolve a dispute with a seller. All refunds and returns must be coordinated between the buyer and the seller. Further, if a seller fails to deliver You the product You bought, Your suggested recourse is to attempt to recover Your payment for the product from the seller and/or adhere to the protocols set forth by the applicable Payment Processor. Company will not reimburse You for any payments You make for a product You do not receive. Company is not a party to the transaction and will not help You resolve any issues resulting from the transaction.
Buyers and Sellers will be permitted to rate one another via the Site’s rating system. A rating should be based upon a transaction or attempted transaction with the other person or entity that You are rating. You acknowledge and agree to rate the other party honestly. The rating system will be based on a five (5) star rating system, with one (1) star being the poorest rating, and a five (5) star being the best rating. Each participating user will be notified regarding the transaction upon which another party has rated it. In addition, You further agree that you will not utilize the rating system in a manner that is inaccurate, untruthful, fraudulent and/or in bad-faith including, without limitation, rating Yourself and/or rating competitors with whom you were not involved in a transaction. By entering into a transaction, You acknowledge and agree that You make Yourself available to be rated via the star-rating system, and You fully authorize anyone involved in a transaction with You to provide a star-rating about You. You forego all standing to make a claim of defamation or raise any other related issues with respect to the manner in which you were rated. If You choose to rate another Site user via the star-rating system or provide comments based upon your interactions with that user, You must do so within one hundred and twenty (120) days from the date of Your transaction with that user. If You fail to do so within this period of time, You will no longer have the opportunity to rate or otherwise comment upon the user involved in that transaction. You covenant and agree, represent and warrant that all information provided, and any information that You will provide, is and will be truthful and accurate to the best of Your knowledge. You agree not to represent any other user in a false light. By providing ratings and any comments, You waive any and all privacy expectations that You may have in and to that rating or comment, and authorize the Site to freely use the same.
Moreover, in connection with the ratings, You shall not (a) trade reviews or positive ratings with other businesses; (b) accept compensation, in the form of monetary or non-monetary compensation, for providing or removing a certain rating; or (c) rate any other Site user unless you engaged in business with that user through the Website.

Dispute Resolution. Subject to the exception set forth herein, You may not institute a suit at law or equity regarding any dispute, whether directly or indirectly related or collateral to these Terms or to the use of this Site or any of Company’s products or services. All such claims or disputes, whether between or among You and Company, shall be submitted binding arbitration administered by a single arbitrator. In that regard and to the greatest extent permitted under the law, You may not submit all such claims or disputes as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding and You acknowledge that you are not permitted to instate class-wide arbitration. Without limitation, any dispute over the arbitrability of a matter shall be specifically reserved for the arbitrator to exclusively hear, and shall not be submitted to the court. However, notwithstanding the foregoing, either prior to, during or after the arbitration process, either Company or You may institute a suit in equity for a temporary injunction (a) to preserve the status quo; (b) to enjoin a breach or threatened breach of these Terms; (c) to obtain specific performance; (d) to compel the arbitration or further its purposes and/or to enforce a settlement or award of such arbitration; and/or (e) for any other equitable relief.
Arbitration Demand Procedure. A claim or dispute by You or Company may only be submitted to binding arbitration if the opposing party is first served with a written demand for same. The party requesting arbitration (the “Requesting Party”) shall provide the opposing party (the “Opposing Party”) with a recommendation for a suggested arbitrator (the “Suggested Arbitrator”) in conjunction with the written demand for arbitration. If the Opposing Party objects to the Suggested Arbitrator, such objection must be set forth in writing and submitted to the Requesting Party within ten (10) days, or the objection shall be waived and the Suggested Arbitrator will be deemed appointed. The objection shall be accompanied by the Opposing Party’s recommendation for an arbitrator. The Requesting Party shall have ten (10) days to submit his objection to the Opposing Party’s recommendation. Thereafter, should the parties be unable to agree upon an arbitrator, the arbitrator shall be chosen by a determination of a court of competent jurisdiction. Either party may make a motion for this determination.
Conference, Discovery and Motions. The arbitrator shall conduct an initial telephone or in-person conference, in the form of a pre-hearing conference to discuss arbitration procedure, within ten (10) days of the arbitrator’s appointment. Both parties to the arbitration shall submit and serve on the other party arbitration statements no later than two (2) days prior to the conference. Company and You shall each have the following procedures available to them, in any order or all at once, with regard to the arbitration: (a) they may each serve up to thirty (30) interrogatories inclusive of subparts which shall be answered within ten (10) days; (b) they may each serve twenty (20) document requests inclusive of subparts which shall be answered within ten (10) days; (c) they may each serve up to thirty (30) requests for admissions which shall be answered within ten (10) days; (d) they may each take up to five (5) depositions, which may be scheduled upon ten (10) days’ notice, as to which all parties shall cooperate in producing and locating witnesses (third party witness attendance may be compelled by issuance of a subpoena); (e) they may each serve a summary judgment motion(s) or motion(s) to dismiss on the basis that the matter should be disposed of in whole or in part as a matter of law; and (f) either party to the arbitration may serve a motion(s) to dismiss or suppress based upon a failure to respond to discovery. Such motions may be served at any time twenty (20) days after the arbitrator is appointed. The responding party will have ten (10) days to respond to the motions. The motions shall be heard by the arbitrator and disposed of within ten (10) days thereafter and the arbitrator may allow replies and sur-replies in his discretion. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, service under this Dispute Resolution clause shall be deemed complete upon mailing to a party’s counsel, or if pro se, to the party directly with an additional three (3) day period for service by regular mail. Time shall be deemed of the essence in regard to any procedures set forth herein and any requests for extension shall be considered by the arbitrator only upon a showing of good cause. Oral argument shall not be required unless a party requests it. The standards for deciding motions shall be those set forth under the case law of the court having competent jurisdiction over this matter.
Determination, Award and Costs. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award any remedy or relief that a court of competent jurisdiction could order or grant, including, without limitation, specific performance of any obligation created under these Terms, or the issuance of injunctive relief. The award rendered by the arbitrator in any arbitration under these Terms is final and binding on the parties. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction thereof. Each party to the arbitration shall perform all acts, including the execution and delivery of further documents, as the arbitrator determines is necessary or desirable to confirm and carry out the terms of the award rendered. Each party shall initially bear its own costs, expenses and administrative fees and an equal share of the arbitrator’s fees until such time, if at all, a party is awarded its costs, expenses and fees by the arbitrator pursuant to the provision of these Terms relating to the allocation of attorneys’ fees. In the event that there is a disproportionate ratio of plaintiffs, defendants or other parties, the arbitrator may consider a reallocation of arbitrator’s fees and expenses in his sole discretion. If either party needs a translator they shall equally bear that expense. If a third party witness requires a translator, the party calling the witness shall bear the expense. Each party shall bear their own travel costs and those of any party or witness they bring. If a party or his attorney does not appear at the arbitration hearing the arbitrator shall strike its claims and/or suppress its defenses and conduct a proof hearing. The arbitration award may be appealed to a court of competent jurisdiction solely on the basis that the award was arbitrary or capricious.
Jurisdiction. You agree that the laws of the State of South Dakota shall govern these Terms and any dispute, controversy or claim directly or indirectly related to such use without regard to its principles of conflict of laws. Further, You consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Third Judicial Circuit in South Dakota or, if federal jurisdiction exists, at the option of either party, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the District of South Dakota, Sioux Falls Vicinage, to compel an arbitration and/or enforce an arbitrator’s award. Nevertheless, the Company shall have the right to institute an action for equitable relief against You in any court, anywhere in the world, as Company deems necessary. The jurisdiction provisions of these Terms shall not be deemed to limit that right. Any arbitration shall be conducted in Minnehaha County, South Dakota. Service of the written notice to initiate the aforementioned arbitration shall be deemed complete when sent either as required by Court procedure or by (i) electronic mail to any of Your current or future electronic mail addresses; (ii) ordinary mail or ordinary or two-day mail by a commercial carrier, in the event a regular mailing address has been provided by the party upon which service is being effected or is otherwise determined by the serving party; or (iii) otherwise in accordance with the laws and procedures of the State of South Dakota.
Further Assurances. You covenant and agree to perform all further acts and execute all supplementary instruments or documents which may be requested by Company to carry out the provisions and effectuate the intent of these Terms.
Assignment. Company may freely assign its rights and obligations in and to these Terms. You acknowledge that You may not assign, transfer or sell Your rights or delegate Your obligations under these Terms without Company’s advance written consent, which may be unreasonably withheld at Company’s sole discretion. Any purported assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void and of no force and effect, and furthermore shall constitute a breach of these Terms.
Severability. One or more provisions of these Terms may be legally prohibited or otherwise unenforceable in certain jurisdictions and not others. In such event, these Terms shall be construed in a manner that is consistent with prevailing law in the jurisdiction in which it is enforced. Therefore, if any provision of these Terms are prohibited or otherwise unenforceable in a jurisdiction where it is being enforced, (a) it shall nevertheless be enforced to the fullest extent allowed by that prevailing law and (b) all other provisions of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be invalidated or rendered unenforceable.
