We, Bid-In Tech Ltd, trading as Bid-Aid (we, us, our or Bid-Aid), are delighted that you (you or Seller) wish to use Bid-Aid’s auction services provided through its website, bidaid.org (Site).

Online auctions are an excellent way for charities to maximise their fundraising potential. Whilst we are very happy to assist with sourcing auction items on your behalf (and for further details on how we can help with this, please contact us at help@bidaid.org, we recommend that you use every effort to exploit resources already available to you, for example by asking existing celebrity supporters and donors to provide memorabilia for sale.

These Terms and Conditions for Sellers (Terms), together with any and all other documents referred to in them, set out the details of how we provide our services and each party’s obligations to each other whenever you participate in auctions that take place on our Site (Auctions). Please read these Terms carefully and ensure that you understand them before participating in an Auction. You will be required to read and accept these Terms when you register to sell an item.

      1. Use of the Site and our Auction services is also subject to our Terms of Use, Terms and Conditions for Bidders and Privacy Policy
  3. Auctions
    1. Our Site is provided solely as an online venue for Sellers and Site users who bid on items in an Auction (Bidders) to participate in Auctions. We are not a party to any transactions or other relationships between Bidders and Sellers. You hereby acknowledge and agree that:
      1. Bidders are not making purchases from Us and are not entering into a contract with Us. A winning Bidder’s purchase is from you, and their contract is with you;
      2. We will not be a party to any dispute between you and any Bidder or another seller. Any claims must be made directly against the party concerned;
      3. except where you engage us to source items and list then on our Site on your behalf, we do not pre-screen any items that you advertise in any listing on our Site advertising an item for sale in an Auction (Listing). We are not, therefore, in any way responsible for any items advertised or sold, or for the content of any Listings;
      4. you are responsible for ensuring, where appropriate, the authenticity of any item you list for sale and must provide proof of authenticity with each item sold (and exhibit a photograph of such certificate of authenticity or other proof of authenticity in the relevant Listing).
      5. while you are required to comply with these Terms, which include provisions covering important matters such as delivery times and delivery methods, we recognise that all Sellers are different and may not process transactions within the same time frame, or offer the same delivery methods (or prices);
      6. once an Auction has begun, it will run for a pre-determined period of time.
      7. the starting price of an item can be changed at any time, including once an Auction has begun, provided that no Bidder has placed a bid. Prices cannot be changed once a bid has been made (unless all bids are withdrawn).
      8. a Bidder may withdraw any bid made in an Auction at any point up until the Auction reaches the end of its predetermined and stated duration.
      9. if the highest Bidder fails to pay for the item within a reasonable period or does not proceed with their purchase for any reason, we may offer the item to the second highest Bidder and these terms shall apply to any such sale as if it were the highest bidder;
      10. if the Seller wishes to set a minimum price which it wishes to receive for the Listing (Reserve Price) the Seller acknowledges and accepts that no contract of sale will be concluded in the event that the highest bid is lower than the Reserve Price;and
      11. where the Seller asks us to provide value estimates for certain Listings, we do not guarantee that such estimates will be correct and we do not accept any liability whatsoever in the event that Listings turn out to be worth more or less.
    2. Once an Auction has begun, it will run for a pre-determined period of time.
    3. Sellers may change the starting price of an item at any time, including once an Auction has begun, either until a Bidder places a bid, or if all bids are subsequently withdrawn.
    4. You may withdraw any bid made in an Auction at any point up until the Auction reaches the end of its pre-determined and stated duration. If an Auction ends at the pre-determined time and yours is the highest bid, you will be the winning Bidder. If you wish to cancel at this point, please refer to Clauses 13 and 15 below.
  4. Descriptions Policy
    1. When advertising an item for sale in an Auction, it is important that all descriptions of items are truthful and accurate, and that all visual representations are true representations of what you are offering (as far as is reasonably possible). You agree that all Listings submitted by you will comply with the following:
      1. if an item is not new, it must not be described as such;
      2. if an item is used, the description must give as much detail as is reasonably possible about the age of the item, its condition, and any damage or defects;
      3. photographs must be of what you are selling and not stock photographs, photographs from other Sellers or websites, drawings, renderings, or other representations;
      4. your Listing must include delivery costs where it is possible to calculate them in advance, or reasonable estimates where it is not possible to calculate them in advance;
      5. you must not use any content that belongs to other parties in your Listings without their express permission (please refer to Clause 5 for more information on intellectual property rights);
      6. your Listing must not advertise alternate locations from which your item can be purchased, thereby avoiding Our Transaction Fees;
      7. you may not materially alter your Listing after an Auction has ended where such alterations result in a change to the description of an item or to its price.
  5. Intellectual Property Rights
    1. Sellers must, at all times, respect the intellectual property rights of others (including, but not limited to, other Sellers) using our Site. Under no circumstances may you use intellectual property belonging to another party without that party’s express permission.
    2. If you feel that another user (whether they are another Seller or a Bidder or otherwise) has infringed your intellectual property rights in any way, please contact us at help@bidaid.org.
    3. If another party contacts us accusing you of infringing their intellectual property rights:
      1. we will contact you to inform you of the complaint;
      2. we may remove the content that is the subject of the complaint;
      3. if you have questions regarding the complaint, or wish to challenge it, you must contact the complaining party. We will not be a party to any dispute concerning intellectual property and cannot assist in resolving such disputes; and
      4. you are free to resubmit the content in question if the complaint is resolved and you have the permission of the complaining party to do so (where it is required). We can neither permit nor deny such resubmission as we will not be a party to the dispute.

The Net Winning Bid means the final price of the Listing sold, less any expenses incurred by us in relation to the Listing, for example, where you have asked us to arrange for the item to be framed or packaged and/or delivered to the Bidder on your behalf. Where you are responsible for delivering the item to the winning Bidder, the Transaction Fee is calculated based only on the final price of an item, not including delivery charges.

    5. We will not make any Bidders’ payment details (including, but not limited to, card numbers, bank account numbers, and sort codes) available to you at any time, or for any reason. All payment details are held securely and shared only with Our Third Party Payment Service Provider.
    6. We will send you a monthly statement and invoice by email within 3 days after the end of each calendar month showing, in respect of each of your Listings sold over the month since your previous statement:

      2. any and all expenses paid by us on your behalf as described in Clause 7.1;
      3. the Transaction Fee; and
      4. the balance payable to you following the deduction of the sums described in Clause 7.6.2 and Clause 7.6.3 (Balance).

    3. Value added tax (“VAT”) may be charged to winning Bidders on purchases and to you on fees payable to us.
    4. If you are VAT registered, you may be required to charge VAT on the items that you sell on the Site.

      1. you must dispatch items as soon as is reasonably possible upon notification of receipt of payment from a winning Bidder under Clause 7, taking into account the nature of the item in question and preparation time. Unless your Listing has stated otherwise, or unless the winning Bidder has agreed otherwise, you must dispatch items no later than 30 calendar days after the date on which the Auction ends;
      2. you must ensure that you dispatch items to the correct address provided by the winning Bidder. It is your responsibility to ensure that the address that you use exactly matches that provided by the winning Bidder. If items dispatched do not reach the winning Bidder due to an incorrect address provided by the winning Bidder, it is their responsibility and not yours;
      3. you are free to determine the delivery charges for your items; however, delivery charges must be reasonable, not excessive, and must genuinely reflect the actual cost to you of delivering the item in question to the winning Bidder;
      4. you must provide an accurate ships-from address in the Listing;
      5. you are responsible for delivering items to winning Bidders upon receipt of payment as notified under Clause 7.4. You may deliver items personally, arrange with the winning Bidder for them to collect the item, or use a postal or delivery service of your choice; and
      6. once an item has been dispatched to a winning Bidder, you must inform them, within 6 hours of dispatch . You must simultaneously notify Us by emailing sales@bidaid.org. You must not describe an item as dispatched until it actually has been.
      7. We strongly recommend that you obtain proof of postage or dispatch when dispatching items. Such proof will be important in the event that a winning Bidder does not receive an item from you.
      8. You must comply with any and all applicable shipping and customs regulations when delivering items to winning Bidders. It is your responsibility to check, be aware of, understand, and comply with all such regulations.
  10. Consumers’ Rights to Cancel and Return Items
    1. Winning Bidders who are consumers (that is, not acting for purposes relating to that person’s trade, business, craft, or profession, within the meaning of “trader” as defined in the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013) and who are based in the European Union may be entitled to a “cooling-off” period within which they may cancel their contract with you and return an item for any reason. If applicable, the cooling-off period ends 14 calendar days after the day on which the winning Bidder (or someone nominated by them) receives the item.
    2. The cooling-off period does not apply in the following circumstances:
      1. If the item is sealed for health or hygiene reasons, and the winning Bidder has unsealed the item after receiving it; or
      2. If the item consists of sealed audio or video recordings (e.g. CD or DVD) or sealed computer software, and the winning Bidder has unsealed the item after receiving it; or
      3. If the item is digital content and it has been downloaded or otherwise accessed by the winning Bidder; or
      4. If the item is likely to deteriorate quickly, for example flowers or food; or
      5. If the item is an experience or other service and this has been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running; or
      6. If the item is the supply of accommodation, vehicle rental services, catering or services related to leisure activities, if the specific date or period for performance has started; or
      7. If the item has been personalised or made-to-order for the winning Bidder; or
      8. If the item has been inseparably mixed with another item or other items (according to their nature) after the winning Bidder has received it.
    3. If a winning Bidder exercises their right to cancel during the cooling-off period, they must inform you of that decision within the cooling-off period. The winning Bidder may do so in any way they wish. Cancellation by email or by post is effective from the date on which the winning Bidder sends you their message. Please note that the cooling-off period lasts for whole calendar days. If, for example, the winning Bidder sends you an email or letter by 23:59:59 on the final day of the cooling-off period, their cancellation will be valid and must be accepted.
    4. Items must be returned to you by the winning Bidder no more than 14 calendar days after the day on which they inform you that they wish to cancel. The winning Bidder will be responsible for the costs (and insurance) of returning items to you if they cancel under the cooling-off period.
    5. When a winning Bidder cancels under the cooling-off period, you must issue a refund within 14 calendar days of the following:
      1. the day on which you receive the item back; or
      2. the day on which the winning Bidder informs you (supplying evidence) that they have sent the item back (if this is earlier than the day under sub-Clause 10.5.1); or
      3. if you have not yet dispatched the item, the day on which the winning Bidder informs you that they wish to cancel.
    6. You may make certain limited deductions from refunds under this Clause 10 as follows:
      1. you may reduce a refund for any diminished value in an item resulting from the winning Bidder’s excessive handling of it (e.g. handling going beyond that which would be permitted in a shop); and/or
      2. you are only required by law to reimburse standard delivery charges. If a winning Bidder has chosen a premium delivery method, you are only required to reimburse them for the equivalent of standard delivery.
  11. Problems with Transactions and Bidders’ Rights
    1. The items that you sell must be of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, as described, in accordance with any pre-contract information that you provide to buyers, and that matches any samples or models that you have shown to buyers (unless you have made those buyers aware of any differences).
    2. If an item does not conform with the requirements outlined in Clause 11.1, the winning Bidder must contact you as soon as reasonably possible to inform you of the problem. Depending on the nature of the problem, the following remedies will be available to the winning Bidder:
      1. beginning on the day that the winning Bidder receives the item, the winning Bidder has a 30 calendar day right to reject it and to receive a full refund if it does not conform;
      2. if the winning Bidder does not wish to reject the item, if the 30 calendar day rejection period does not apply, or if it has expired, the winning Bidder may request a repair or replacement. You must bear the costs and must carry out the repair or replacement within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience to the winning Bidder. If either a repair or a replacement is impossible or disproportionately difficult, you may offer the winning Bidder the alternative option (i.e. a replacement instead of a repair or vice versa) or a full refund. If the winning Bidder requests a repair or replacement during the 30 calendar day rejection period, that period will be suspended while you carry out the repair or replacement and will resume on the day that the winning Bidder receives the replacement or repaired item. If less than 7 calendar days remain out of the original period, it will be extended to 7 calendar days;
      3. if, after a repair or replacement, the item still does not conform (or if you cannot repair or replace it, as described above, or if you have failed to act within a reasonable time or without significant inconvenience to the winning Bidder), the winning Bidder may have the right to keep the item at a reduced price, or to reject it in exchange for a refund.
    3. If the winning Bidder exercises the final right to reject the item more than six months after receiving it, you may reduce any refund to reflect the use that the winning Bidder has had out of it.
    4. Please note that winning Bidders will not be eligible to claim under this Clause 11 in the following circumstances:
      1. you provide details of any fault(s), damage, or other problems with the item in your Listing, i.e. before the winning Bidder purchases it and it is because of that/those same issue(s) that the winning Bidder subsequently wishes to return the item;
      2. the winning Bidder has purchased the item for an unsuitable purpose that is neither obvious nor made known to you and the problem has resulted from the winning Bidder’s use of the item for that purpose; or
      3. the problem is the result of normal wear and tear, misuse, or intentional or careless damage on the part of the winning Bidder.
    5. The costs of returning items to you should be covered by you, reimbursing the winning Bidder where necessary.
    6. Refunds (whether full or partial, including reductions in price) under this Clause 11 must be issued within 14 calendar days of the day on which you agree that the winning Bidder is entitled to a refund.
      1. Any and all refunds under this Clause 11 must include all delivery costs paid by the winning Bidder when the item was originally purchased on completion of the Auction.
      2. Further information on legal rights can be obtained from your local Citizens Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.

As between you and us, you shall remain fully liable for all acts or omissions of any third-party processor appointed by you pursuant to this Clause 12.6.
    7. Either you or we may, at any time on not less than 30 days’ notice, revise this Clause 12 by replacing it with any applicable controller to processor standard clauses or similar terms forming party of an applicable certification scheme (which shall apply when replaced by attachment to these Terms).

    3. Variation. Any variation of these Terms only has effect if it is in writing and signed by you and us (or our respective authorised representatives).
    4. Waiver. If we do not insist that you perform any of your obligations under the Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you or that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive any rights, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any right related to any later default by you.
    5. Severance. Each paragraph of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them is unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
    6. Third party rights. These Terms are between you and us. No other person has any rights to enforce any of its terms.
    7. Governing law and jurisdiction. These Terms are governed by English law and we each irrevocably agree to submit all disputes arising out of or in connection with these Terms to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
