SALE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Bidders, Contributors and Buyers hereinafter referred to as “Users” and StockShowAuctions.com hereinafter referred to as “Auctioneer” agree that the terms and conditions set forth below shall govern this online auction. All registration information provided by Users to Auctioneer shall be current, complete, and accurate. Users must be 18 years of age or older. Users agree to not use any device, software or routine to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper functioning of this online auction sale. Users acknowledge that this online auction is conducted electronically and that the Auctioneer and other parties to the online auction will therefore of necessity rely on hardware and software that may malfunction without warning to either party. To proceed with User registration, User must first agree to the following Terms and Conditions / User Agreement
TERMINAL AUCTION: Student exhibitor consignors may offer their project as a “Terminal” auction which means the highest bidder will be granted the contents of the lot at the conclusion of the auction and successful payment. A terminal lot should be understood by the bidder that they are buying the contents of the lot and have the ability to take delivery and provide adequate care of live animals.
ADD-ONS: Users desiring to assist individual exhibitors through financial donations may place “Add ons” on specific lots. These add on monies will be credited to the student exhibitor less applicable sale expenses. There is no transfer of lease or ownership implied to any lot by placing “add ons” on a lot. Add ons are to be strictly considered a gift to the student exhibitor.
BIDDING TYPES: Bidding is done in increments and will vary by lot according to the current price or request of specific consignor and/or governing body such as a specific fair or show board. Bidding Users have one of two choices for bidding style. 1) “Max Bid” style which allows bidders to enter the maximum amount they wish to spend and allow the system to bid on your behalf by the published increments as other Users compete against your maximum bid. 2) “Regular Bid” style allows bidders to enter a bid that will become the new highest bid, unless another User has entered a higher “Max Bid”, passing all other increments. With either option, Users should be aware that they may be out bid minutes before the close of the online auction and may not have the opportunity to enter another bid. You should automatically receive notification by email and/or text if another bidder outbids your maximum bid, however you should not rely solely on this email and/or text notification. You will therefore need to monitor the auction activity to stay fully 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. There are no exchanges or refunds absent express statement to the contrary expressed herein. A bid by any person shall be deemed conclusive proof that such person is familiar with the terms and conditions of use and auction rules and that the bidder agrees to be bound by them. Each Lot will extend 5 (five) minutes beginning five minutes prior to the posted end time. If the sale ends at 7PM and a bid is placed at 6:57PM and no other bids are received the lot will close at 7:02PM.
BID RETRACTIONS: 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 manifest your intent and ability to buy the lot at the bid price. A false or fraudulent bid may result in legal action. Any winning bidder who refuses to purchase the lot may be banned from all future online auctions. Despite efforts to avoid the withdrawal of lots from the online auction sale after they are listed, it may sometimes be necessary to withdraw lots, therefore, the consignor reserves the right to do so at any time before or during the online auction sale ends and bidders acknowledge the consignor’s right to do so without recourse of such.
