1. Privacy and Data Security; Account Information

4. Terms of Bidding

4.1 Definitions

A “Completed Purchase” occurs when (i) you have provided to the Seller of the Inventory Products (“Seller”) all of the purchase information requested in the Notification (as defined in 4.2.2) in the manner specified in such Notification to complete your purchase and (ii) the Purchase Price for the Inventory Products has been received as specified in the Notification.

“Extended Listing” shall mean any listing where the time to accept bids is extended, one or more times, due to a bid being placed within the final 0-10 minutes of the listing. Each extension is for a period of 1-10 minutes.

“Listing Data” shall mean the content on the Platform associated with particular Inventory Products, including, but not limited to, the description and quantity of the Inventory Products. B-Stock and Seller shall have the right to modify or correct any Listing Data at any time and such modification shall be binding on any purchase of any Inventory Products made as a result of a bid placed after such modification.

“Promotional Content” shall mean any and all information, materials, or content provided or otherwise made available to you by Seller or its agents in any medium in connection with these Terms of Bidding, including promotional content and Listings displayed on the Platform.

4.2. Listing Process

4.2.1. Inventory Products. Inventory Products may consist of customer returns or company stock items, some of which may have been previously shipped. The condition of the Inventory Products will vary and standard designations regarding a product’s condition will be set forth in the Listing Data. The Inventory Products are provided to you “as is” for purchase on the Platform. The quantity and/or value of actual Inventory Products in each lot may vary from the description in the Listing Data. Typically such variance is up to 5 percent (5%) less or greater than the number set forth in the Listing Data and may include up to 5 percent (5%) quantity and/or value of more damaged items than designated as “Damaged” in the Listing Data; please see the Seller’s Terms for variance information for a particular Listing. Accessories such as remote controls, cables and instructions may or may not be included.

4.2.2. Listing Process. Inventory Products will be sold pursuant to the listing process set forth in this Section 4.2 (the “Listing”). If you wish to bid on Inventory Products, you will be required to enter your bid amount. In order to be eligible for the Listing, your bid must be (i) in an amount equal to or higher than the bid listed as the minimum opening bid and higher than the “current winning bid,” as applicable, (ii) at least one bid increment higher than the current bid as set forth on the bid page and (iii) placed before the scheduled closing time for such Listing (including any additional time added for an Extended Listing). If your bid is the highest bid at the conclusion of a Listing or, if it is tied for the highest bid and was placed before any equivalent bids (the “Winning Bid”) you will be notified by email (the “Notification”) at the email address you provided when you created your B-Stock account (or as subsequently updated by you by following instructions on the Platform) that you are the winning bidder. The Notification will serve as your official proof of purchase and/or official invoice. Any additional formal invoice or proof of purchase outside of the original winning notification is not available. It is your responsibility to keep your email address current and to timely check your email to determine if you are the winning bidder for any Listing in which you participated. Neither B-Stock nor Seller is responsible for the failure of a Notification to reach a winning bidder for any reason, including, but not limited to, technical problems or other system error.

4.2.3. Winning Bids. If your bid is deemed the Winning Bid at the end of the Listing for certain Inventory Products, you agree to promptly purchase such Inventory Products by paying the full amount of the Purchase Price and any other applicable fees via one of the payment methods outlined in the Winning Bid Notification, within 2 business days after the end of the Listing. If you fail to register a Completed Purchase, including by failing to pay the Purchase Price and any other applicable fees, within two (2) business days of when the Notification is sent by B-Stock or Seller, as applicable, you shall forfeit any right to purchase such Inventory Products and B-Stock may deactivate your account and password so you can no longer access the Platform and, at its sole discretion, may choose to (i) offer to sell such Inventory Products to the next highest bidder or (ii) post such Inventory Products on the Platform for sale in a new Listing. You shall be responsible for all taxes, shipping costs and any other expenses incurred in connection with your purchase hereunder.

In the event B-Stock terminates your account because you either failed to pay for any given Winning Bid or violated these or a Seller’s Terms, you may be given the chance to pay a reinstatement fee in order to reactivate your account. The fee amounts, unless superseded by amounts set forth in the Seller’s Terms (which may vary on a per-Seller basis), are as follows:

1st Offense: $0-$10,000 Purchase Price: $100 Fee
1st Offense: $10,000+ Purchase Price: $500 Fee
2nd Offense: $0-$10,000 Purchase Price: $500 Fee
2nd Offense: $10,000+ Purchase Price: $1,000 Fee
3rd Offense: $1,000 Fee

4.2.4. Deactivation; Cancellation. B-Stock reserves the right, in its sole discretion at any time and for any reason, to deactivate your account, reject any offer to purchase Inventory Products or suspend or cancel any Listing or purchase of Inventory Products, including fulfillment of a purchase after completion of a Listing and payment for the Inventory Products.

4.3. Conditions to Sale; Payment; Shipping

4.3.1. Canceled Bids and Purchases. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any bid or purchase for any reason. By way of example, but not limitation, we may cancel your bid or purchase if there are inaccuracies or errors in product or bid information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance department. While Sellers strive to provide accurate product and bid information, typographical or system errors may occur. In the event that bids for Inventory Products are incorrectly listed or Inventory Products are listed with incorrect information due to an error in quantity or other product information, we shall have the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any purchases placed for such Inventory Products. In the event that we must cancel a bid or purchase, we will cancel your bid or purchase and notify you by email of such cancellation.

4.3.2. Payment Terms. You are responsible for paying all fees that you owe to B-Stock or Sellers (See 4.2.3). You are also solely responsible for collecting and/or paying any applicable taxes for any purchases or sales you make through our Services. In the event the Platform offers tools or suggestions to assist with the calculation of any value-added tax or VAT, B-Stock makes no guarantee, representation or warranty as to the accuracy of any such amount, and it is solely your responsibility to determine the appropriate tax. Some countries may refer to VAT using other terms, e.g. Goods and Services Tax (GST), but we will just refer to VAT, GST, and any local sales taxes collectively as “VAT.”
B-Stock may require you to add a payment method (Credit Cards, ACH in USA, BACS in the UK, EFT in Canada, and SEPA in the EU) to your B-Stock account that can be used for paying the Purchase Price, taxes, service fees and termination fees described in 4.2.3. The payment method associated with your B-Stock account can be used for any marketplace powered by B-Stock unless the Sellers or B-Stock has restricted the ability to use certain payment methods for certain transactions, as will be set forth in the Listing Data and/or Notification. See link here for complete list of marketplaces powered by B-Stock.
You shall submit the Purchase Price and any other associated fees in accordance with the payment terms set forth in the Listing Data, Notification and on the Platform. The Seller or B-Stock (as applicable) may revise the payment terms from time to time in its sole and absolute discretion upon notice to you, which notice may be via the Listing Data and/or the Notification. Your transaction may be eligible for payment via a virtual collection bank account(s) owned by Payoneer and allocated to B-Stock. When the payments are made to the virtual bank accounts owned by Payoneer, B-Stock shall act as a technical service provider delivering Payoneer with the necessary data for the allocation of funds to sellers. Payment will be required in cleared funds before a Seller ships any Inventory to you.

4.3.3. Shipping. Please refer to our Shipping Policy, which is incorporated into these Terms of Use by this reference, for information on the various options available to Sellers for shipping Inventory Products to Buyers. Buyer acknowledges and agrees to be bound by all such shipping terms set forth in the Shipping Policy. In no event will B-Stock be liable for loss of or damage to Inventory Products during shipping. Nor will B-Stock have any responsibility for transportation arranged directly by Seller or Buyer.

4.3.4. Identification of Seller. You acknowledge that the information regarding the Purchase Price and any particular sale are confidential to B-Stock and Seller.

4.4 Promotional Content Disclaimer

10. Governing Law; Dispute Resolution

B-STOCK SUPPLY USERS: IF YOU BID UPON, PURCHASE, OFFER FOR SALE, OR SELL INVENTORY THROUGH B-STOCK SUPPLY SITE, ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE THAT ARISES OUT OF OR RELATES TO THE B-STOCK SUPPLY TRANSACTIONS, WHETHER BETWEEN YOU AND B-STOCK OR BETWEEN YOU AND A BUYER OR SELLER (AS APPLICABLE), SHALL BE RESOLVED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURES SET FORTH IN THE B-STOCK SUPPLY ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION POLICY LOCATED AT https://bstocksupply.com/adr/ WHICH IS INCORPORATED HEREIN.

Unless superseded by governing law and dispute resolution provisions set forth in the Seller’s Terms (which may vary on a per-Seller basis) or the B-Stock Supply Alternative Dispute Resolution policy pursuant to the foregoing paragraph, the terms of this Section 10 shall apply as follows:

These Terms of Use will be construed in accordance with and governed exclusively by the laws of the United States and the State of California applicable to agreements made among California residents and to be performed wholly within such jurisdiction, regardless of such parties’ actual domiciles excluding: (1) its conflicts of law principles; and (2) the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods or any local laws implementing such convention in any applicable jurisdiction.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH B-STOCK AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.

You agree that all such disputes or claims that have arisen, or may arise, between you and B-Stock arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court. Alternatively, you may assert your claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this agreement to arbitration.

Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator should apply the terms of these Terms of Use and any relevant agreement between the parties as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability, the scope or enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate, or the interpretation of these Terms of Use, shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide.

The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, as modified by these Terms of Use. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The use of the word “arbitrator” in this provision shall not be construed to prohibit more than one arbitrator from presiding over an arbitration; rather, the AAA’s rules will govern the number of arbitrators that may preside over an arbitration conducted under these Terms of Use.

A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute (“Notice”) to all other parties by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if any other party has not provided a postal address, then by electronic mail, with a copy to B-Stock at disputes@bstock.com. The Notice must include a description of the nature and basis of the claims the party is asserting and the relief sought. The parties shall thereafter make good faith efforts to resolve the dispute directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, any party may commence an arbitration proceeding. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s site at www.adr.org. In addition to filing this form with the AAA in accordance with its rules and procedures, you may send a copy to B-Stock at disputes@bstock.com. Any settlement offer made by a party, if any, shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator.

The arbitration hearing shall be held in the county in which the initiating party resides or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, any party may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on the parties subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant.
