Auction Terms and Conditions
With respect to any Lot in an Online-Only Auction, at least two minutes must elapse between placement of the final bid and the close of bidding. In furtherance of the foregoing, with respect to any such Lot, if a bid is placed with fewer than two minutes remaining on the countdown clock for bidding (“Countdown Clock”), then the bidding period will be extended and the Countdown Clock will be reset at two minutes, and such extensions will continue indefinitely until there is no more bidding activity on the Lot for a period of two consecutive minutes. The extension of any one Lot’s closing time will not affect other Lots’ closing times; therefore, in any Online-Only Auction, Lots may close out of numerical Lot order.
Before you can bid via Online Bidding, you must register to bid online. The registration page can be accessed by clicking here.
Once you have registered you should keep your account details strictly confidential and you must not permit any third party to use or access your account on your behalf or otherwise. You will be liable for any and all bids made via your account.
Online Bidding Process
Once you have successfully registered for Online Bidding in a Sale, you will be eligible to bid online at that Sale.
During a Sale, you can bid for a lot by clicking the Bid button. Each bid shall be final and binding as soon as you click the Bid button.
The current bid will be displayed on your screen during the Sale.
You acknowledge that you are bidding in a live auction and you agree that each bid submitted as provided in these terms and conditions is irrevocable and cannot be amended or corrected, even if submitted in error and notified to us. You accept full liability for all bids submitted via your Online Bidding account (including the liability to pay in full and on time in accordance with the Bid Conditions for any lot that is the subject of a successful bid submitted from your account).
Please note that Kidston reserves the right to reject a registration to bid online, withdraw its permission for you to use Online Bidding, or terminate an Online Bidding account, for any reason at any time prior to, during or after a Sale.
After the Sale
To find out if you have been successful in your bidding, you may check the results that are published by Kidston online after the Sale.
You agree to pay for any lot that is the subject of a successful bid submitted by you or from your Online Bidding account, in accordance with the Bid Conditions.
