Specific auction terms & conditions:

1.         The services provided by the relevant GoIndustry DoveBid Group Company (“Auctioneer”) are governed by these Terms and Conditions.  By participating in this auction, you consent to be bound by these Terms and Conditions as well as by any additional terms that may be imposed by the seller or announced at the auction, included within the Notice to Purchasers and/or set forth on individual asset lot pages.  For the purposes of these terms and conditions, we refer to any person or entity registering to offer or offering to buy goods as a "buyer" regardless of whether any contract of sale is concluded.

2.         All potential buyers must register online at  Auctioneer may, in its sole discretion, deny registration to any person or entity.

3.         All assets in the auction shall be sold to the highest bidder; provided, however, that some assets may be auctioned with minimum reserve prices, and/or subject to seller’s right of confirmation.  The reserve price may be decreased by the Auctioneer or seller at any time before or during the auction. The reserve price may be decreased to the level of the highest Autobid if that bid is below the current reserve price with the effect that the highest Autobid may be accepted. Auctioneer reserves the right to reject any bid that is only a minimal increase over the preceding bid, that is not commensurate with the value of the item being offered or that Auctioneer believes was made illegally or in bad faith. Further, Auctioneer, may bid at the auction either for its own account or on behalf of a third party (including on behalf of sellers but, if on behalf of sellers not at or in excess of the reserve price).  In the event of a dispute among buyers, Auctioneer may, in its sole discretion, either accept what it deems to be the final bid or solicit further bids on the item in dispute.  All sales are final.  No returns or refunds will be permitted, unless authorized by the seller in writing.

4.         In the event of any dispute concerning the winning bid price for an asset, the record kept by Auctioneer shall control.

5.         Buyers shall examine or inspect items prior to the day of the auction.  ALL ITEMS ARE SOLD AS IS, WHERE IS AND WITH ALL FAULTS.  NEITHER SELLER NOR AUCTIONEER MAKES ANY WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE NATURE, QUALITY, VALUE OR CONDITION OF ANY ASSET.  AUCTIONEER AND SELLER EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.  Assets are intended to be sold without software, if any is applicable.  In the event that a seller's software is included in an asset sale, notwithstanding the disclaimers set forth above, Auctioneer makes no representations or warranties regarding the buyer's right to use such software, as to the performance of the software, its non-infringement or otherwise.  In such circumstances, Auctioneer recommends that buyer contact the software manufacturer directly to resolve any such issues. 

6.         Auctioneer relies on information about assets in the auction provided by the seller.  Auctioneer undertakes no investigation of that information, and makes no representation or warranty concerning the truth or completeness of that information.  Photographs are provided solely for the buyers' convenience and shall not be construed to create representations or warranties of any kind pertaining to the assets.  Buyer acknowledges that it has had the opportunity to inspect all assets prior to tendering its bid and waives any and all claims against Auctioneer and/or seller relating to asset photographs or descriptions.

7.         A discounted buyer's premium of 16% of the bid price will be added to the purchase price for each lot for buyers who pay in the form of cash, cashier's check, company check (with a letter of guarantee) or wire transfer within 72 hours from receipt of Auctioneer’s invoice; the full buyer's premium of 18% shall apply for buyers who pay via credit card and all other buyers that do not remit payment within 72 hours from receipt of Auctioneer’s invoice.

8.         Collection of applicable taxes will be in accordance with the laws of the jurisdiction in which the purchased asset is located.

9.         Each successful buyer must pay a 25% deposit toward the purchase price immediately following the successful bid.  Buyers expressly authorize Auctioneer to use their credit card to satisfy the deposit amount.  If a buyer fails to make a timely deposit, Auctioneer and the seller may resell the items in question without notice.  Full payment of the purchase price is due at the earlier of (i) 48 hours after the buyer has received an invoice, or (ii) the close of business on the third business day after the auction but in any event by the Payment Date set out in the Notice to Purchasers.  Without limiting the foregoing, full payment of the balance of the purchase price is due prior to removal of any purchased assets.  In the event that a buyer fails to pay the entire purchase price (in addition to the buyer’s premium and any applicable tax) within the time specified by Auctioneer or otherwise fails to comply with these Terms and Conditions, Auctioneer and the seller will retain the deposit as liquidated damages without notice.  Auctioneer and the seller reserve the right to resell such items without notice, and the defaulting purchaser shall be liable to Auctioneer and seller for any resulting deficiency, including costs incurred in storing and reselling such assets.  In the event of such resale, the defaulting purchaser shall be liable to Auctioneer and seller for any resulting deficiency, including costs incurred in storing and reselling the assets in question.

10.        Auctioneer accepts the following methods of payment: cash, cashier’s check, and wire transfer made payable to Auctioneer also will accept a company check if it is accompanied by a letter from the company’s bank guaranteeing payment in full, without condition and upon demand. Auctioneer will also accept VISA®, MasterCard®, American Express® if so indicated in the Notice to Purchasers.

11.        By participating in an auction, each buyer represents, warrants and covenants that (i) it shall not misrepresent its ability to close the transaction pursuant to the terms and conditions of sale, (ii) it has the capacity to close the transaction, (iii) it has actual authority to enter a bid, and to enter into an agreement to purchase the item, and (iv) any bid it makes on an item constitutes an irrevocable offer to buy the item for the full amount of the bid.

12.        Auctioneer may, in its discretion, offer the assets for sale by the piece or by the lot.  In addition, Auctioneer may augment an auction with assets from various sellers.  These assets may be interspersed throughout the auction.  The seller has the right to remove assets from the auction either before or after bidding has completed.  In the event of a removal after bidding has been completed, the purchaser’s sole remedy shall be the refund of any purchase price actually paid.

13.        Auctioneer will announce any additions to or deletions from the catalog on the day of the auction.  Auctioneer and the seller assume no responsibility for, and make no representations or warranties concerning, descriptions of assets contained in marketing materials for the auction.  It is the buyers’ obligation to verify such descriptions prior to the auction.
