6. JunkYardFind.com serves only as a Venue:
JunkYardFind is an internet site on which registered users post listings offering merchandise which they possess and wish to sell in an open auction or instant purchase environment. Registered users may also bid on or buy such merchandise.
At no time does JunkYardFind possess, hold, or offer any merchandise for sale or auction, nor are we involved in any part of the actual transaction.
JunkYardFind serves only as a venue in which individual sellers and buyers may engage in transactions between each other. Because of our non-involvement in these transactions, it is the sole responsibility of the seller to accurately represent the quantity, quality, safety, authenticity, and availability of the items the seller has listed on the site.
Furthermore, it is the responsibility of the bidder or buyer to verify with the seller any or all information about any item listed on JunkYardFind, for which they intend on placing a bid or buying, before placing such bid or buying. JunkYardFind cannot be responsible for a seller's willingness or ability to sell any item they have listed, or a bidder's willingness to follow through with a transaction for an item for which they have placed a bid or purchased. We encourage open communication between buyers and sellers before and after any transaction takes place.
7. Placing Bids or Buying:
By placing a bid on or buying an item listed on JunkYardFind, you are stating that you have the ability and intention to purchase the item for the amount of your bid should you win at the close of auction, or to purchase an item for a stated price. In the case of a reserve auction, if your bid meets or exceeds the sellers stated reserve price, you agree to purchase the item for the amount of your winning bid.
Before placing a bid in an auction or buying, you should be certain you understand all terms and conditions of the sale as indicated by the seller. Placing a bid is considered a legal, binding contract. If you have any questions about an item, or the seller offering the item, you should ask the seller before placing your bid.
The seller does not have the capability to withdraw bids. They can only cancel the entire auction.
Only in certain situations would cancelation be acceptable. These situations may include:
The seller has made material changes to the description of the item after your bid was placed.
The seller has made a typographical error in the description of the item.
You have contacted the seller and requested that they cancel the auction, and the seller agrees to do so.
Bidders may not engage in the following activity:
Bidding in a manner that causes the maximum bid of other bidders to be revealed, then retracting your high bid, and bid again at a lower increment above the true high bidder.
Placing bids for the purpose of exposing the sellers reserve price, then retracting your bid and bid again later with a secondary User ID.
Bidding on any item that you do not have the intention or means to purchase at the close of the auction, should your high bid cause you to win the auction, or buying an item at a stated price without intention or means to purchase. You are encouraged to ask the seller of an item listed on JunkYardFind any questions you may have regarding the sale of, or condition of, the item before placing your bid.
