AUCTIONS. THE FOLLOWING RULES ARE SPECIFICALLY APPLICABLE TO AUCTIONS:
Buyers: If you have the highest bid, you are obligated to complete the transaction. Bids are not retractable. 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 by the website can vary by several seconds resulting in the possibility of your bid being taken at a higher price than you intended. Do not submit bids during a flurry of bidding activity. Wait until bidding activity has subdued before placing your bid.
High speed Internet access (ie: dsl, cable, T-1, wireless, satellite) is required to bid at live auctions. DO NOT BID if you do not have high speed Internet access. Bids are queued by the dvauction.com host computer in the order received. Bid positions are awarded on a first come, first serve basis.
In the event of malfunction by the dvauction.com host computer, the auction process will be stopped. If the malfunction has not affected the sale of lots sold prior to the malfunction, they will be considered sold. Auction of remaining lots/drafts 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 DVAuction, Inc.
