  1. RESPONSIBILITY

The Company is not a legal party to the Agreement between Advertister and Bidder and therefore has no liability, financial or otherwise, towards the Advertiser or Bidder for agreements entered into between these parties when using the Service or disputes which may arise as a result of said agreements.

The Company provides the Services ”as is” and reserves the right to make changes to the Service without prior notification to Advertiser or Bidder. The Company is not responsible for any malfunctions of the Website, technical or otherwise. The Company can thus not guarantee the function and availability of the Service and can therefore not guarantee continuous, uninterupted or secure access to the Service and Advertiser is aware that the operation of the Website may be disturbed by a number of factors which are outside the Companys control.

Furthermore, the Company is not liable for any damages which the Advertiser or Bidder suffers as a result of missing or delayed responses to ads or incorrect information in the ads.

The Company or other company within the same group of companies or to the Company related companies are therefore not liable for damages, losses (neither direct or indirect) or other inconveniences that Advertiser or Bidder suffer as a result of the use of the Service.

The Company further reserves the right to discontinue/suspend Advertiser or Bidder who uses the Service in violation of the Terms and Conditions, applicable laws or in ways which otherwise appear unacceptable to the Company.

You are obliged to identify what applies in your respective country before you you place a bid or create an auction.

The Website may offer various translation services or features provided by a third party through which the Advertiser or Bidder may translate content from the Website/Service. The Company does however not guarantee access to such services or functions and does not assume responsibility for the accuracy of such translations. The Company is therefore not liable for any damage that the Advertiser and/or Bidder may suffer as a result of differences between the original and translated content from the Website/Service.

The Company owns and disposes of all software, databases, registers, texts, images, trademarks, names and logos as well as all other intellectual property rights available on the Website.

Furthermore, the Company has the right to use all the material (the ”Material”), on the Website or otherwise, which the Advertiser and/or Bidder upload to the Website or otherwise makes available to the Company when using the Service. This includes, but is not limited to, photographs which the Advertiser provides the Company with of what the Advertiser offers for sale through the Service as well as any related texts, videos, brands and technology.

By using the Service, the Advertiser and/or the Bidder further warrant that it will not upload to the Website or otherwise make use of material which infringes or otherwise violates any form of rights, intellectual property or otherwise, or material which infringes the rights of a third party.

The Advertiser and/or Bidder thus, through the use of the Service, grant an irrevocable and to time, territory and media unlimited right for the Company to use, adapt, reproduce or otherwise use the Material free of charge in its business activities without limitations, for purposes gradually determined by the Company.

  • The Company may limit or terminate the Bidder’s use of the Service in case of the Bidder using the Service in violation of these Terms and Conditions.
  1. PURCHASE

Since the Company is not a part of the agreement between the Advertiser and the Bidder, it is for these parties to find out what applies, as well as to follow applicable sales legislation during and upon the completion of the auction.
