YOU must provide such information (including identifying information and qualifications) as requested by Auctioneer. Auctioneer may refuse to accept a Bidder Registration from any potential Bidder, may refuse to grant bidding privileges to any potential Bidder, and may suspend or revoke the bidding privileges of any Bidder at any time. By registering to bid, YOU represent to Auctioneer that, if YOU are a natural person, YOU are at least eighteen (18) years of age and that YOU are otherwise legally able to enter into a contract.

If bids are made by or on behalf of an entity, the entity and any individual making the bid will be jointly and severally liable on account of the bid.

BIDDER QUALIFICATION PROVISIONS ARE INTENDED FOR THE BENEFIT OF AUCTIONEER AND SELLER, AND CREATE NO RIGHTS OR INTERESTS IN ANY OTHER PERSONS, INCLUDING COMPETING BIDDERS.

5. Access to Auction Site and/or Online Auction Platform; Assumption of Risk; Limitation of Liability. YOU assume all risks in connection with YOUR participation, or attempted participation, in the Auction, including, without being limited to, risks arising from or associated with: (i) YOUR presence at the Auction Site; (ii) YOUR use of any Online Auction Platform utilized by Auctioneer; and/or (iii) any harm, injury, or damage to YOU or YOUR property resulting from acts other than those caused exclusively by Auctioneer’s gross negligence or intentional misconduct. YOU further agree that neither YOU nor any person accompanying YOU to, or otherwise visiting, the Auction Site will attempt to operate or activate any machinery or equipment at the Auction Site without Auctioneer’s express consent; and, that, YOU will assume all liability for property damage and/or personal injury caused by YOU or YOUR representatives, employees, independent contractors, or agents. YOU acknowledge and agree that the Auction Site may be a potentially dangerous place that requires YOU to be diligent, alert, and aware at all times. Flammable, noxious, corrosive, pressurized and otherwise hazardous substances may be present at the Auction Site. Machinery, equipment, and vehicles may be operated at the Auction Site, and electrical circuits may be live at the Auction Site. YOU enter the Auction Site at YOUR own risk with notice of the condition and activities that will be, or have been, conducted at the Auction Site; and YOU assume such risks with respect to YOURSELF and anyone, including any minor children, accompanying YOU or visiting the Auction Site on YOUR behalf. YOUR representatives, employees, independent contractors, or agents also assume such risks. No person will have any claim against Auctioneer and/or Seller, or their respective agents or employees, for any injuries sustained or for damages to or loss of property that may occur at the Auction Site. Neither Auctioneer nor Seller will be liable for any damages of any type or nature sustained or claimed by YOU or by any other person or entity in connection with, or in any way related to, the Auction. YOU waive any and all claims and/or causes of against Auctioneer arising in connection with, or in any way related to (i) YOUR presence at the Auction Site; (ii) YOUR use of any Online Auction Platform utilized by Auctioneer; and/or (iii) any harm, injury, or damage to YOU or YOUR property resulting from acts other than those caused exclusively by Auctioneer’s gross negligence or intentional misconduct.

6. Nature of the Auction. Unless otherwise stated in writing, the Auction will be With Reserve. Auctioneer may Withdraw the Property prior to the Fall of the Hammer, even if bids have been tendered and/or recognized. In addition to being With Reserve, the Property may be sold Subject to Seller’s Confirmation if announced at or prior to the commencement of the bidding, and Seller may, in Seller’s sole and absolute discretion, accept or reject the final bid on the Property.

7. Multiple Listing Services; Listing Price. Unless otherwise negotiated, the Hammer Price for the Property will be determined through competitive bidding at the Auction. The Property may be listed on one of more Multiple Listing Services, or Multi-Lists (“MLS”). Listing on an MLS requires a listing price (the “MLS Listing Price”). Seller has not agreed to sell the Property for the MLS Listing Price, and the MLS Listing Price does not constitute, or otherwise embody, an offer to sell the Property for that amount.

8. Bid Increments. Bid increments are established and controlled by Auctioneer, and may be adjusted or modified in Auctioneer’s sole and absolute discretion.

9. Absentee Bids; Remote Bidding. In Auctioneer’s discretion, Auctioneer may receive Absentee Bids and/or bids tendered by remote Bidders (whether telephonically or otherwise). Absentee Bids may be initiated and advanced in accordance with Auctioneer’s policies and procedures. Auctioneer will make reasonable efforts to execute Absentee Bids, but Auctioneer will have no liability to any Absentee Bidder for the failure to execute any Absentee Bids for any reason whatsoever. Each Absentee Bidder acknowledges and agrees that the Property may be sold to another Bidder for the maximum amount of the Absentee Bid based on a bidding sequence that causes another Bidder to reach the such amount first. If the execution of an Absentee Bid at its maximum amount would require Auctioneer to accept a bid that is less than a full bidding increment, Auctioneer has the sole and absolute discretion to acknowledge or reject such bid. An Absentee Bidder may authorize Auctioneer to advance the bid by one or more bidding increments after the maximum amount of the Absentee Bid is, or would be, reached. Auctioneer acts as the agent of the Seller only, and the receipt and/or execution of Absentee Bids will not create an agency relationship between Auctioneer and any Absentee Bidder. 10. Buyer's Premium. The Property is subject to a Buyer's Premium that will be calculated as a percentage of the Hammer Price and paid by the Winning Bidder in addition to the Hammer Price. The amount of the Buyer’s Premium for each Auction will be posted on Auctioneer’s website and/or otherwise announced by Auctioneer, and the Buyer’s Premium may vary depending on whether YOUR bids are submitted online, or onsite, or otherwise. The Buyer’s Premium may also be adjusted to account for credit card processing fees and/or check verification fees. The Buyer’s Premium may be reduced, either globally or on a case-by-case basis, at Auctioneer’s discretion. The Buyer’s Premium is earned at the Fall of the Hammer and will not be refunded by Auctioneer. The Buyer's Premium will be added to the Hammer Price to determine the final Contract Price for tax purposes. If YOU are the Winning Bidder and YOU default on YOUR obligations as set forth in these Bidder Terms and Conditions, or otherwise, there will be no set-off or reduction in the Buyer's Premium even if the Property is resold. Because the Buyer's Premium is earned with the Fall of the Hammer, Auctioneer has no obligation to mitigate damages with respect to the Buyer's Premium, and YOU acknowledge and agree that mitigation of damages is not possible.

11. Online Auction. In addition to all other terms and conditions set forth in these Bidder Terms and Conditions, the following terms and conditions apply if the Auction is conducted, in whole or in part, online:

11.1. Posted Times. Unless stated otherwise, all posted or listed times are intended to reference the local time zone at the Auction Site. Posted closing times and time displays are approximate. Auctioneer reserves the right, in Auctioneer's sole and absolute discretion, to close early, extend, reset, or reopen the Auction.

11.2. Online Bidding; Maximum Bids. Online bids may be submitted as a single advancing bid or as a maximum bid, and bidding will advance competitively to the next available increment. If YOU submit a single advancing bid and YOUR bid is equal to or less than the maximum bid previously submitted by another Bidder, YOU will be outbid. If YOU submit a maximum bid and a maximum bid has previously been submitted by another Bidder, bidding will advance to the next highest bid increment after which either YOUR maximum bid or the previously submitted maximum bid has been exhausted, whichever occurs first, and the then-current bid will be shown at that amount. If YOUR bid is shown as the current high bid and another Bidder submits a bid (either as a single bid or as a maximum bid), bidding will advance to the next highest bid increment after which either YOUR maximum bid or the maximum bid of the competing Bidder has been exhausted, whichever occurs first, and the then-current bid will be shown at that amount.

11.3. Technology Disruptions. YOU acknowledge and agree that the Auction is conducted electronically and relies on hardware and software that may malfunction without warning. Auctioneer will not be responsible for, and will suffer no liability for, technology disruptions, errors, or failures (including disruptions to bidding or the failure to execute, recognize, or record online bids), whether caused by (i) loss of connectivity, breakdown, disruption, or failure of the Online Auction Platform(s), (ii) breakdown, disruption, or failure of a Bidder's internet connection, computer, or system, or (iii) otherwise. Auctioneer may, but will not be required to, continue, suspend, delay, extend, reschedule, or close the Auction because of disruptions caused by technology failures, even after bidding has commenced.

11.4. Failures by Online Auction Platform Provider and Its Affiliates or Contractors. Under no circumstances will Auctioneer be liable for any failure of the Online Auction Platform Provider(s) to perform, or for the failure of any affiliates, employees, agents, representatives, or contractors of the Online Auction Platform Provider(s) to perform regardless of whether such obligations are owing, directly or indirectly, to Auctioneer, to YOU, to Seller, or otherwise.

11.5. Automatic Extension Feature and Rolling Close of the Bidding. Any Online Bidding Period may include an automatic extension feature. This means that if a bid is entered within a set time period approaching the end of the established Online Bidding Period, the Online Bidding Period will be automatically extended for an additional period of tim e in increments established by Auctioneer, and such extensions will continue until there is a set period of time that lapses during which no advancing online bid is received, after which bidding will close.

11.6. Disclaimer.

IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE AUCTION, OR THE NATURE, CHARACTER, OR FUNCTIONALITY OF TECHNOLOGY ASSOCIATED WITH THE AUCTION, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE RECOURSE IS TO IMMEDIATELY DISCONTINUE YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE AUCTION. AUCTIONEER RESERVES THE RIGHT TO TERMINATE YOUR BIDDER REGISTRATION, TO SUSPEND OR TERMINATE YOUR ACCESS TO THE AUCTION, TO IMPOSE LIMITS ON CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE ONLINE AUCTION PLATFORM, AND/OR LIMIT, RESTRICT, OR TERMINATE YOUR ACCESS TO THE AUCTIONEER’S WEBSITE OR TO THE AUCTION WITHOUT NOTICE.

11.7. Restrictions on Use. YOU agree that YOU will not use any robot, spider, other automatic device, or manual process to monitor or copy the Online Auction Platform(s), Auctioneer’s website, any technology associated with the Auction, and/or any content associated with the Auction. YOU  agree that YOU will not use any device, software or routine to interfere with, or to attempt to interfere with, the proper functioning of the Online Auction Platform(s), Auctioneer’s website, any technology associated with the Auction, or any activity being conducted in connection with the Auction. YOU agree that YOU will not take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on the Online Auction Platform(s) and/or Auctioneer’s website and/or online infrastructure. YOU agree that YOU will not copy, reproduce, alter, modify, create derivative works, or publicly display any content from the Online Auction Platform(s) and/or Auctioneer’s website. Access and use of any Online Auction Platform is subject to any and all terms and conditions of the Online Auction Platform Provider(s).

11.8. Security of Bidder Account. YOU are responsible for monitoring and maintaining the security of YOUR Bidder Account information. If, at any time, YOU know or suspect that YOUR Bidder Account has been hacked, cloned, compromised, or improperly accessed, YOU must notify  auctioneer, in writing, immediately, and YOU will not be responsible for bids tendered through YOUR Bidder Account after such notice is received by Auctioneer.

12. No Bid Retraction; Irrevocable Offer. Without Auctioneer's consent (which consent may be granted or withheld in Auctioneer's sole and absolute discretion), YOU may not retract or revoke a bid that has been acknowledged by Auctioneer or that YOU have submitted online. YOU acknowledge and agree that Auctioneer is acting in reliance on tendered bids in the conduct of the Auction, and that bid retraction: (i) is disruptive and interferes with the Auction; (ii) may call into question the integrity of the Auction; (iii) may reduce Bidder confidence in the Auction process; and (iv) may have a negative effect on the Hammer Price, thereby harming the Seller. As an inducement for Auctioneer to accept YOUR Bidder Registration and to grant YOU the privilege of bidding at the Auction, and in consideration of the ability to bid at the Auction, YOU agree that, without Auctioneer's prior consent, YOU will not withdraw or to attempt to withdraw any bid tendered by YOU or on your behalf. YOU, further, acknowledge and agree that YOUR bid constitutes an irrevocable offer that will not be terminated by Auctioneer's solicitation and/or acknowledgment of advancing bids, neither of which constitutes a rejection of YOUR bid. YOU recognize that if the bidding is reopened for any reason after the Fall of the Hammer, or if Auctioneer permits the withdrawal of a subsequent advancing bid, YOUR bid may be accepted and YOU may be declared the Winning Bidder. If YOUR online bid is not accepted prior to or at the close of bidding, the offer will terminate seventy-two (72) hours after (i) the close of bidding or (ii) the expiration of the period for Seller to accept of reject a High Bid Subject to Confirmation, whichever is later.

13. Responsibility for Bids Placed on Bidder Number or Bidder Account.

Auctioneer will have control over bidding, and Auctioneer will resolve any and all disputes. Auctioneer may, in Auctioneer’s sole and absolute discretion, reopen the bidding if (i) a bid is made while the hammer is falling in acceptance of a prior bid or while bidding is otherwise being terminated, or (ii) after the Fall of the Hammer or other termination of the bidding Auctioneer is made aware of a bid that was unnoticed prior to the Fall of the Hammer or other termination of the bidding, or (iii) after the Fall of the Hammer or other termination of the bidding Auctioneer is made aware that Auctioneer and a bid assistant or ringman, or multiple bid assistants or ringmen, have acknowledged bids in the same amount bid from different Bidders, or (iv) an online bid, or other bid by a remote Bidder, tendered or attempted to be tendered prior to the Fall of the Hammer goes unrecognized, or (v) some other bid dispute arises. Any contract formed with the Fall of the Hammer will be subject to the conditions set forth in this Section.
