Description of Information
The descriptions of items appearing in the auction and in advertising prior to this sale are believed to be correct. Nevertheless, neither those descriptions nor any oral statements made by Owner/Seller or Auctioneer concerning any item shall be construed as a warranty either express or implied. PAINTINGS, WATERCOLORS, AND ALL OTHER ITEMS ARE SOLD AS IS – WHERE IS and WITH ALL FAULTS. These written terms constitute the final expression of the parties’ agreement and a complete and exclusive statement of the terms of the contract for sale, or refusal to close the sale. The IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, ARE SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED from this contract for sale and transaction and shall NOT apply to the item that is the subject of these sales. Use of this site is at your own risk, and content is presented “As Is”. Specific terms regarding lot descriptions, payment terms, shipping and delivery, insurance, and other important information are located on the page of each auction.
Bidding is done in increments and will vary by item according to the current price. You are encouraged to bid the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the item (Maximum Bidding). Be aware that you may be outbid minutes or seconds before the close of the auction and may not have the opportunity to enter another bid.
You may not automatically receive a notification if another bidder outbids your maximum bid via email. You will need to monitor the auction activity to stay informed.
In the event of a tie, the earlier bid will be considered the winning bid. When bidding ends, all sales shall be considered final. All items are sold “as is”. There are no exchanges or refunds absent and express statements to the contrary expressed herein. A bid by any person shall be deemed conclusive proof that the bidder is familiar with the Terms and Conditions for DUAIV Online Auctions and Auction Rules and that the bidder agrees to be bound by them.
Every transmission over the Internet travels a different route and can be delayed by a variety of factors, including the bidder’s own computer. The time-lapse between submission of a bid and its registration can vary by several seconds. Bids are queued by DUAIV Auctions’ host computer in the order received. Bid positions are awarded on a first-come-first-served basis. Bids are time-stamped by the host computer with the time received. To be accepted, bids must be received by the host computer prior to closeout. In the event of malfunction by DUAIV Auctions’ host computer the auction process will be stopped. If the malfunction has not affected the sale of livestock or merchandise sold prior to the malfunction the items will be considered sold. Auction of remaining lots will be completed upon correction of the malfunction. Bidding will be open, with no bid positions awarded upon resumption of the auction. Any malfunction by the buyer’s computer or Internet service provider is not the responsibility of DUAIV Auctions.
As a Bidder, placing a bid is a binding contract between you and DUAIV Auctions, and the bid cannot be retracted unless due to fault by the Owner/Seller of a typographical error, or other error, due to human error on the Owner/Seller’s part. Once you place a bid, and if you win, you will be obligated to buy the item at the said price you indicated as your bid. Placing a bid on this auction site, and winning, then not paying for the product is illegal in most states, and prosecution can result. The Owner/Seller of property sold through this web site reserves the right to reject any and all bids if they so choose.
As a Bidder, you are responsible for any bids placed by you or a designated representative under your bidding name and password. The security of your Bidder information is your sole responsibility as you, the Bidder, will be responsible for any and all bids placed under your number. If at any time you feel that your Bidder name and password have been compromised due to lack of security on your part you must notify DUAIV Auctions. immediately.
Bidders agree that when using the Maximum Bid feature on our web site they use it according to the specifications we have in place for that feature. Please note that when using the Maximum Bid feature, if you are the current high Bidder and you want to change your Maximum Bid, you will be required to place a new bid in the increment designated for that item in order to raise your Maximum Bid which may cause you to raise your last high bid by one bid increment. You, as a Bidder, understand and agree to how the Maximum Bid feature works if you choose to use it.
DUAIV AUCTIONS CLOSING FORMAT
WHEN TIME EXPIRES, ALL LOTS ARE DECLARED SOLD! ORIGINAL ENDING TIMES VARY – SEE EACH SPECIFIC AUCTION FOR DETAILS. EXTENDED BIDDING WILL CONTINUE UNTIL THERE IS NO BIDDING FOR THE ALLOTTED MINUTES. In the event of an auction continues past 11:30 PM EST DUAIV Auctions has the right to decrease the extended bidding time to 1 minute without advanced warning. We encourage bidders to use the maximum bid feature earlier in the day to avoid clock management issues in your bidding procedures.
With this option, all lots will close simultaneously. A few benefits to this style of auctions – Buyer has the CHOICE to switch to any lot in the offering if he is outbid on his current choice; the buyer does not have to deal with the “seller’s order” of sale because all lots are offered and bid on simultaneously, and the buyer has true choices and more time to make decisions.
You can always check the time remaining information that appears under each lot! REMEMBER TO CLICK ON REFRESH FOR UP-TO-DATE TIME REMAINING! For each auction, the extended bidding period varies based on the number of lots and the overall duration of the auction.
There are no bid retractions. ALL BIDS ARE NON-CANCELLABLE ONCE SUBMITTED. Once a bid is made and confirmed, it cannot be retracted. When a bid is made you disclose your intent and ability to buy the item at the bid price. A fraudulent bid may result in legal action. Any winning bidder who refuses to purchase the item may be banned from future auctions.
Despite efforts to avoid the withdrawal of items from the sale after they are listed it may sometimes be necessary, therefore, the DUAIV Auctions reserves the right to do so at any time before or during the sale.
An auction item may have a reserve price. The reserve price is the lowest price at which an item will be sold. The reserve price is never disclosed to bidders, but a note may be displayed in the item information screen specifying a reserve price. When the reserve price has been met the screen may read “ Reserve Price Met”. The item will then be sold to the highest bidder at the conclusion of the auction. When an article is sold with reserve DUAIV Auctions may bid on the seller’s behalf in an amount not to exceed the reserve price.
If the reserve price is not met, the item will not be sold during that auction. DUAIV Auctions reserve the right to accept or reject any or all bids unless otherwise stated.
