GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS


Auto Bidding:

If you enter a maximum bid, the system will automatically bid on your behalf up to your maximum bid amount. For example you enter a bid of $100 on an item and maxbid of $400. If no other bids are placed on that item you will be the winner at your $100 bid. If another bidder places a bid of $200 on the item you will now be winning at the $200 plus 1 increment level (for example: $200 + $25 = $225). The system will not take you to your maximum bid unless there is another buyer’s auto bid which is higher than yours or a live on-line bidder is bidding on the item. The system will take you in the bid increments established for that lot.

Anti Sniping:
Each auction ends at a specific time. However, all auctions use an auto-extend / dynamic closing feature. Thus, bidding will still remain open on any item that has received a bid within the last 5minutes. Once 5 minutes have passed without any new bids the auction for this item will be closed.

GENERAL TERMS FOR 24/7 ON-LINE AUCTIONS
Additional terms may apply for each specific auction client. Please refer to each item's description and review terms before bidding.

All persons desiring to bid must be registered online prior to the auction and must have obtained a Bidder's User Name and Password.

No allowance, refund or set aside will be made on account of any incorrectness, error in cataloging, imperfection, defect or damage. Any descriptions or representations are for identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. It is the responsibility of the Buyer to have inspected thoroughly the merchandise and to have satisfied himself or herself as to its condition and value and to bid based upon that judgment solely.

All descriptions of items for sale contained herein or provided during the time of the auction are believed to be correct, but the Auctioneer makes no representation or warranty, express or implied, as to the accuracy of any such description, and hereby specifically disclaims any such warranty. The Buyer specifically agrees and acknowledges that the use of the term "tested" as used to describe articles of jewelry means only that the Auctioneer believes that the article described has been tested as to the gold or silver content of the article described, but the Auctioneer makes no warranty that the gold or silver content is as described. Likewise, the description of an article as a diamond or other gem or the description of an article as being of a particular brand does not constitute any representation or warranty that the article is as described. The Buyer hereby agrees to rely solely on his/her own expertise to determine the value of any item purchased rather than the description of any article contained in the catalog or announced by the Auctioneer.

The Buyer agrees that any item successfully bid upon will be paid for by the Buyer immediately following the closing of the auction and within the posted payment period by the delivery of Cash, Postal or Bank Money Order or a Check drawn on an account containing sufficient immediately available funds.

The Buyer acknowledges and agrees that no "stop payment" order shall be issued or honored. The Buyer further agrees that a stop payment order or a check returned marked "insufficient funds" shall be considered prima-facie evidence of intent on the part of the buyer to defraud the Auctioneer at the time of delivery of the check.

The Buyer agrees that the act of submitting a bid shall constitute acceptance of each and every term and condition contained herein and of any additional terms and conditions which may be posted on the website. The Buyer agrees that in any dispute between the Seller and the Buyer or between competing bidders arising in connection with any sale at the auction, the Auctioneer shall have the right but not the obligation to settle such dispute, and the Buyer shall abide by the decision of the Auctioneer, whose decision shall be final with respect to such matter. The Buyer further agrees to indemnify the Auctioneer for all liabilities, damages, costs, and expenses including attorneys fees incurred in connection with any such dispute or in connection with any claim, litigation, controversy, dispute or proceeding arising from any purchase of an article by the Buyer or from any subsequent sale of such article to any third party.

Upon payment of any amount to Seller, the Auctioneer or its assigns shall be subrogated to all of the Seller's rights of recovery. The Buyer agrees that any and all disputes arising from this auction will be resolved solely through binding arbitration in Tarrant County, Texas.
