2.1.7  You must not collaborate with any seller to attempt to conduct a sale and purchase transaction which is contrary to the letter or spirit of any law, including acquiring goods with the intent to return them to the seller or an affiliated person (by lease, sale or otherwise) or with intent to deprive creditors of the seller from his or her assets.

2.1.8  You must not collaborate with any other Buyer or with any seller to “bid-up” the price of any item. All bids must be expressions of Your good faith intent to acquire the item in question for Your own use or the use of Your business, if applicable.

2.2  Status of bids and lots

2.2.1  When You make a bid as a Buyer, You are making an irrevocable offer to purchase the lot in question for the amount of Your bid from the seller of the item. If no higher legitimate bid is received within the term of the auction, and provided the bid exceeds any minimum price set in the terms of the auction, Your offer will be automatically accepted and You will be forming a legally binding agreement to purchase the lot. You must therefore not make any bid which You do not intend to be legally bound by.

2.2.2  We do not sell auction lots. We are an intermediary platform that allows You to make offers to sellers and helps to facilitate the sale and purchase process. Transfer of the legal title to any lots is passed to You, if Your bid is the winning bid, by the seller in question and therefore when you make a winning bid you are forming a contract for purchase with the seller.

2.2.3  We may receive fees from the Buyer or seller, as applicable, as set out in these Buyer Terms and in our seller terms.

2.2.4  Further information as to the status of the lots and the actions, if any, we have taken with respect to the lots are set out in the Motor Vehicle Terms and General Materials Terms below.

2.3  Right to bid

2.3.1  Your right to bid is contingent upon You having lodged the required deposit in advance of the auction. Further details are set out in the Motor Vehicle Terms and General Materials Terms below in the “Buyer Deposit” sections.

2.3.2  We may increase the required deposit levels for any particular lot if We believe the purchase price for such lot is likely to materially exceed the stated thresholds.

2.3.3  If You make a winning bid, We may retain Your deposit to offset the purchase price plus the Buyer Fee. Any excess deposit will be refunded to you.

2.3.4  If You do not make a winning bid, Your deposit will be refunded following the end of the auction.

2.3.5  We have no liability to You in any circumstances whatsoever if you are unable to bid for a lot or complete a purchase, whether due to a failure of the deposit process, cancellation or delay of an auction, the act of a seller, technical failure of our platform or any other reason.
