Our Role

The Website is a public venue where persons can sell and buy property. The Website is primarily a venue for companies and merchant sellers to provide merchandise for sale through our online auctions and bidders to bid on auctions. Unless otherwise expressly stated by R2Bid.com, R2Bid acts as the sole conductor and/or agent in the transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result R2Bid.com maintains control over the items put up for auction, including, control with respect to quality, safety or legality of items for sale, truth or accuracy of listing for sale items, and the ability to oversee transactions of buyer(s) whom engage in any transaction over the Website. R2Bid.com cannot and does not control whether buyers will complete the purchase or sale of items upon which they have bid. Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult and many times impossible, R2Bid.com cannot and does not confirm that each user is who he or she claims to be.

You release R2Bid.com and our agents and employees from losses, expenses, claims, demands and damages, actual and consequential, of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with or arising from: (1) any information or content placed on our Website by you, any seller, buyer or other user, (2) any dispute you may have with any seller, buyer or other user of our Website, and (3) any use or disclosure of all or any of Your Information to any third party by any seller, buyer, or other user of the Website. It is the buyers responsibility, and it is not the responsibility of R2Bid, to have knowledge of, obey, or comply with any applicable federal, state or local laws and regulations regarding transportation, handling, storage, purchasing, possession, use, misuse or ownership of the items sold on our website.

Fees, Pricing, Promotional/Discount Codes and Taxes

Though R2Bid might provide suggested pricing and historical pricing data to sellers, we do not set prices for the items. Because sellers set prices, they may be higher than retail or suggested value. If you are uncertain of the price of an item, please contact us or research historical pricing, prior to placing a bid on or purchasing an item, as bidding or purchasing an item is a contract and will be handled as such. We reserve the right to investigate complaints and violations of these Terms and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, may take any actions we deem appropriate, including suspending your account and charging your credit card for costs we incur as a result of the violation. Although the Services are anonymous and we generally do not share your information with other buyers and sellers, we may share your information with law enforcement and other third parties as part of an investigation related to any alleged violation of law or these Terms, and we may respond to all inquiries initiated by law enforcement or other governmental agencies.

R2Bid may sometimes furnish an alphanumeric code that can be used for promotions or discounts for purchases on our sites. These promotional or discount codes may be sent via email to our registered users, presented on our web sites or circulated at events and through other means and, unless otherwise provided are subject to the promotional or discount terms. In addition, some items listed for sale on our site may not be eligible for special offers or promotions due to the condition that a Seller must agree to these discounts. Discounts or offers do not apply to local, state, provincial, federal, or international taxes (including VAT and sales tax) that may be due with respect to a sales transaction, and as a buyer you agree to pay all local, state, federal, or international taxes (including sales taxes) that may be due with respect to your purchase transaction. You agree that R2Bid, as the facilitator of the transaction, is not responsible for reporting, collection or payment of any taxes on your behalf.

Counterfeits, Fraud, and Market Manipulation

Although counterfeiting, fraud and market manipulation are rare due to our own testing and authentication process, prior to listing items, we take it very seriously. If a buyer receives an item that they believes to be counterfeit, the buyer must notify R2Bid in writing within 3 days after receiving the item, so we can start an investigation into the item. The buyer shall cooperate with us in the investigation and final disposition of the item, including providing photographs and other evidence of the item, providing the item to law enforcement, destroying the item, or delivering the item back to us, at our direction. If we elect to have the buyer destroy the item, the buyer shall provide reasonable proof of destruction to us. We will refund all fees and costs paid by the buyer for the item (including shipping and handling). In no event may a buyer resell any item (on R2Bid or elsewhere) that is reasonably believed to be counterfeit. Any listings by Seller will be temporarily or permanately cancelled at our discretion, until issue is resolved.

Online Auction Marketplace Safety

R2Bid may monitor the integrity of the R2Bid marketplace and may take steps to protect the marketplace as determined by R2Bid in its sole discretion (e.g., if R2Bid believes a seller or buyer is engaging in market manipulation or fraud, including creating false or “dummy” accounts). If R2Bid believes that a seller or buyer attempts to interfere with the free and fair operation of the R2Bid marketplace, or creates artificial, false or misleading information, or information appearing to mislead with respect to pricing or demand for a product on the R2Bid marketplace (all of the foregoing in R2Bid’s sole discretion), then, without limiting any other rights of R2Bid, R2Bid reserves the right to do any or all of the following, in its sole discretion: (i) remove any or all of the user’s listings from the Services; (ii) cancel any or all of the user’s orders pending through the Services; (iii) withhold any payments due to the user; (iv) place limits on a user’s buying and selling privileges; (v) charge user’s credit card for costs, expenses and fees incurred by R2Bid as a result of the user’s actions; (vi) notify law enforcement of the fraudulent activity; (vii) temporarily or permanently suspend the user’s account, and (viii) charge the user’s credit card an additional service fee of up to $1,000 to cover R2Bid’s investigation fees and other related costs and expenses.
