• You understand that Kaufman reserves the right to modify the Terms & Conditions of this auction at any
time. You agree to be bound to any such modifications when You use the Website or participate in an online
auction for any bid placed after any such modification is posted. It is therefore important that You keep
Yourself up to date with these Terms & Conditions and any changes to them.
• If when bidding on Real Estate and is applicable you acknowledge (a) property disclosure, (b) lead based
and the purchase agreement that you will enter into is without modification that is on the website if you are
the high bidder.
• You are 18 or older, legally competent to enter into a contract, and not under any disability which would
prevent you from entering into a valid and enforceable contract.
• You do not currently have a case in any United States Bankruptcy Court nor do you anticipate such a filing
within the next 90 days.
• In exchange for permission to use the website, You agree to not alter or modify any part of the Website other
than as may be reasonably necessary to use the Website for its intended purpose and/or in a manner allowed
by Kaufman. You accept sole responsibility for all Your activities using the Website, including Your
conduct on the Website and any all content You may submit, post, or share via the Website. You will not use
the Website for any unauthorized or illegal purpose. You further agree not to copy, reproduce, or publicly
display any content from the Website.
• It is in Kaufman’s sole discretion to accept or decline the instructions of any individual who claims to be
authorized to make direct changes to Your Bidder Account, so long as the person presents the appropriate
account information. We shall not be responsible for the actions made by any individuals who misuse or
misappropriate Your account information or other assets using Your Bidder Account, password, or other

the Trademarks displayed on the Website, or any other content on the Website, except as provided in these

• Depending on the specific online auction, You may place bids in the following ways: (1) Max Bid; (2)
ForceBid/-JumpBid; and (3) Ultimate Choice Bidding Platform. “Max Bid” allows You to enter Your Max
Bid and the system will continue to bid for You by increments until it reaches Your Max Bid.
“ForceBid/JumpBid” is a bidding strategy by which a bidder increases the bid by more than the next
accepted bid (for example, placing your bid at $150 when the next accepted bid is $125). This practice is
used by some bidders to discourage others from bidding in hopes of acquiring an item at a lower price.
There are many theories on the effectiveness of this practice and if You choose to apply this practice, You do
so at Your own discretion. If the Ultimate Choice Bidding Platform is being utilized, there is no max bidding
feature. Once You have clicked on the lot or combination of lots and click get price, You then have two
options. You can simply click submit bid to enter Your bid at the amount displayed or You can enter a higher
bid in the space provided. Your bid will be implemented at this amount. This is not max bidding, so the bid
will be placed at the exact amount You enter. If the specific auction You choose to participate in is online
only, bidding will begin at a certain time and date and end at a certain time and date. Depending on the
specific auction You choose to participate in, should a bid be placed within a certain amount of minutes
before the auction’s ending time, the ending time will automatically be extended from the time that bid is
placed. The time will continue to extend until the bidding activity has stopped. The online only auction
closes when the timer on the auction hits zero. The winning bidder of an item is the last bidder the bid
history recorded before the timer hits zero. Kaufman, in its sole discretion, may determine when and how
long it chooses to extend the auction’s ending time. If the specific auction You choose to participate is online
and live (simulcast), pre-bidding will begin at a certain time and date and end at a certain time and date. The
actual live portion of the auction in which online and live bidding will occur will begin at a certain time and
date and end on the same date at a later time. You can read more about auction terminology and the bidding
functions and how they operate at: https://www.kaufmanauctions.com/support/terminology/.

reserves the right to add or remove items from an online auction, split or combine lots, make changes to the
online auction ending times and pick-up date and/or time, cancel, suspend, extend, or reschedule an
