They govern your use of our site (our, the or this “Site”) and your sale and purchase of merchandise and services in whole or in part by use of this Site. The Terms include the rules, specifications and guidelines hyperlinked below as if they were written directly into this web page. You may not use our Site or use our services if you are under 18 years of age or are otherwise unable to form binding contracts under applicable law. Your use of this Site constitutes your agreement to be bound by the Terms, and your acknowledgment that there is no other agreement between us relating to the matters addressed by these Terms. We may change the Terms at any time at our sole discretion. Such changes may be made without notice. You agree to regularly review the Terms and any additional terms posted on this Site for changes, and agree that ANY USE OF THE SITE AND ANY LISTING OR PURCHASE MADE BY YOU AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF A CHANGE CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE CHANGE.

WE PROVIDE A MARKETPLACE
Our services are limited to providing a marketplace for sellers to sell goods to buyers. We do not have any role in the transactions between third-party buyers (“Buyer” or “Buyers”) and sellers (“Seller” or “Sellers”) that take place using the Site. We are not an agent or partner of any Buyer or Seller, and we have no authority to act for any Buyer or Seller. For this and other reasons, IF A DISPUTE ARISES BETWEEN YOU AND ANY OTHER BUYERS OR SELLERS, YOU RELEASE US (AND OUR AFFILIATES, AGENTS AND EMPLOYEES) FROM CLAIMS, DEMANDS, AND DAMAGES OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH DISPUTES, AND YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD US AND OUR AFFILIATES, AGENTS, AND EMPLOYEES HARMLESS FROM AND AGAINST ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, LIABILITIES, COSTS OR EXPENSES, INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEYS' FEES, RESULTING FROM OR ARISING OUT OF ANY SUCH DISPUTE.
You may only list items and make sales on this Site after you register and your registration is approved by us. Approval is at our sole discretion. You authorize us to conduct such investigations and to make such inquiries as we may choose in order to determine whether or not to grant approval. Any investigation or review that we undertake is undertaken by us for our own purposes and not for the benefit of any other person, including any Seller or Buyer. Any approval of registration does not constitute an endorsement by us of the registrant, or a warranty of any listing or listed item or of any transaction conducted on or through use of the Site. No person may rely upon our approval process or any result of that process for any purpose whatsoever.
Generally, a Seller may list for sale on the Site any item that is not illegal to sell and that is not prohibited by us. Guidance as to what is prohibited by us, and additional provisions of these Terms that relate to the listing of prohibited items, can be found on the Prohibited Items list. The Seller has sole responsibility for the content of its listing. Under no circumstances may a Seller include an item, a link, text or other material that (i) infringes any person’s intellectual property rights (including, but not limited to, rights under copyright, trademark, patent, and trade secrets laws) or other proprietary rights (including, but not limited to, rights of publicity or privacy); (ii) constitutes libel or slander or is otherwise defamatory, or (iii) otherwise violates any applicable law. It is the Seller’s sole responsibility to determine what laws are applicable and to comply with those laws.
A listing constitutes an offer to sell by the Seller. A Seller’s listing must be accurate, complete and not misleading. A Seller shall not list for sale any item that the Seller does not have the full legal right to sell. If a Seller lists goods for sale at a fixed price, the Seller must sell the goods to any Buyer (i) who is not prohibited by law from acquiring the item, (ii) who agrees to pay the listed price, (iii) who accepts all other terms of Seller’s offer, and (iv) whose identity can be confirmed. Despite what it says in the previous sentence, however, a Seller is not obligated to sell a listed item for the listed price if the price was clearly incorrect due to a typographical error. If a Seller lists goods for sale by auction, the Seller must sell the goods to the Buyer who is the highest bidder if (i) the Buyer’s purchase is not prohibited by law, (ii) the bid exceeds the Seller’s pre-established minimum price and, if any, the Seller’s reserve price, (iii) the Buyer accepts all other terms of the Seller’s offer, and (iv) the Buyer’s identity can be confirmed. Items sold by auction are sold without reserve, unless otherwise specified by the Seller in the listing. By posting a listing, a Seller agrees to complete the sale as described in the listing and these Terms.
The Seller shall determine whether sales, use, or similar taxes apply to the Seller’s sales, and shall collect, report, and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. TucsonLiveAuction.com has no obligations whatsoever with regard to taxes applicable to such sales or any items offered or sold.
If a Seller cannot ship an item promptly after the closing of the sale, or otherwise as specified in the listing, the Seller must provide a full refund no later than thirty days after the closing of the sale to any Buyer who remits payment. A Buyer’s acceptance of the refund will not constitute a waiver of any other claims or rights the Buyer might have against the Seller arising out of or relating to the Seller’s failure to deliver. Payment of a refund is the responsibility of the Seller only, and a Buyer who is owed such a refund shall bring the matter directly to the attention of the Seller. TucsonLiveAuction.com will not have any obligation to pay or cause the Seller to pay any refund.
You must register in order to bid on or purchase items offered for sale on TucsonLiveAuction.com. Once made, a bid or an acceptance of a fixed price offer cannot be retracted. When you place a bid or indicate your acceptance of a fixed price offer, you enter into a contract with the Seller. If you win an auction or accept a fixed price offer, you must pay the Seller for the items purchased if the items are as advertised and the Seller’s identity can be authenticated. You must pay the agreed price, plus all applicable federal, state and local taxes that may apply. If you fail to pay, you will be subject to possible exclusion from TucsonLiveAuction.com, as well as liability to the Seller for damages and to us for breach of these Terms.
In order to maintain the integrity of our marketplace, you may not accept a fixed price offer or bid if you do not satisfy any requirements established in the Seller’s listing or in these Terms. You may not bid if you do not intend in good faith to try to acquire the item by means of your bid. Among other things, this means you may not engage in shill bidding or in bidding for the purpose of disrupting the auction or harming the interests of the Seller.
Sellers pay fees, not Buyers. By listing an item for sale, you agree to pay TucsonLiveAuction.com the fees established by agreement between you and TucsonLiveAuction.com, or, if there is no separate agreement between you and us, according to our Fee Schedule. The Fee Schedule may be changed by us at any time upon five days’ notice, which notice may be given by email to the email address listed in your TucsonLiveAuction.com account and/or by posting the revised Fee Schedule on the Site. You agree to regularly review the Fee Schedule posted on the Site. You agree to pay all charges incurred by users of your account and credit card or other payment mechanism at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. The fees payable upon a sale are those in effect on the date of sale. All fees are payable in U.S. dollars on demand. You will be billed periodically, with payment due within ten (10) days after the invoice date. If you do not pay an obligation owing to us on time, we may, and you authorize us to, at our sole discretion, charge any amounts you owe us then or later to any one or more of the credit cards and other payment mechanisms you provided at the time of registration or that you later substitute or add to your TucsonLiveAuction.com account. We may also collect fees and other amounts owed using other collection mechanisms. You agree that if we choose to retain collection agencies or legal counsel to collect past due accounts, you will pay all related legal and other fees, commissions, and costs incurred.
By accessing the Site, you agree that you will not work alone or with any other person to evade payment of the fees payable under these Terms. A Seller shall not sell a listed item to a person who contacts the Seller through this Site except by the means provided by this Site. A Buyer shall not purchase a listed item from a Seller except by the means provided by this Site.
COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS; FRAUD
You may not use the Site or the Services for unlawful purposes or in an unlawful manner. You must comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws, statutes, rules and regulations.

OUR RIGHT TO SUSPEND AND TERMINATE

All such actions may taken immediately without notice at any time or times, and in such order and combination as we deem advisable. We reserve the right to cancel without notice unconfirmed accounts or accounts we deem inactive.
WE MAY SELL OR BUY

When we or any of our affiliates offer goods for sale on the Site, we will abide by the same rules we apply to all Sellers. When we or any of our affiliates bid for or purchase goods on the Site, we will abide by the same rules we apply to all Buyers.
