20.Supplemental Provisions Applicable to Auctions. If you use the auction capabilities provided through the Site the following additional provisions apply to bids placed by you and the sale of goods facilitated through the Site:
A.Auction Process. You acknowledge and agree that bidding on equipment through an auction on this site is the legal equivalent of a firm commitment and an irrevocable offer to purchase. All bids that you place are binding on you and cannot be retracted. If you enter a “Maximum Bid”, you authorize the bidding system to place bids on your behalf up to the submitted bid amount. Sales price manipulation of any kind, directly or indirectly, by you is prohibited. If you are the highest bidder, as established by Wells Fargo at the close of an auction, and have met or exceeded the reserve price, if any, your bid will be automatically accepted by Wells Fargo, you will be notified by an e-mail from Wells Fargo and you are obligated to complete the transaction in accordance with these Terms.
The period during which bids can be placed on equipment listed for a particular auction shall be determined solely by Wells Fargo. Wells Fargo is the one and only judge for the determination of winning bids; however, Wells Fargo shall not be liable for any errors or omissions relating to such determination. Wells Fargo does not guarantee that bids placed on an auction listing through the Site will be received and processed in a timely manner. Wells Fargo reserves the right to reject or void bids, whether winning or not, which it believes (a) have not been made in good faith, (b) are intended to manipulate the listing process, or (c) are prohibited by applicable law or regulation. Wells Fargo reserves the right to withdraw, postpone or cancel any auction, or any sale that results from a listing, in its own discretion, with or without notice and Wells Fargo shall have no liability to you as a result of any such withdrawal, postponement or cancellation.
B. Conditions of Sales. You acknowledge that the used equipment described on the Site and any subsequent invoice and Bill of Sale is sold “AS IS” and “WHERE IS.”
C.Disclaimer. WELLS FARGO MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF ANY KIND OR NATURE EXCEPT THAT (1) SUBJECT TO YOUR PERFORMANCE WITH THESE TERMS, YOU WILL ACQUIRE GOOD TITLE TO THE EQUIPMENT FREE FROM ALL ENCUMBRANCES CREATED BY WELLS FARGO AND (2) WELLS FARGO HAS THE RIGHT TO SELL THE EQUIPMENT. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, WELLS FARGO MAKES NO WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE QUALITY, CONTENT, CONDITION, MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OF THE EQUIPMENT AND NO WARRANTIES AGAINST PATENT INFRINGEMENT OR THE LIKE.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE ITEMS SOLD HEREUNDER ARE USED AND THAT WELLS FARGO IS OR WAS THE LESSOR THEREOF AND DID NOT USE, MAINTAIN, OR HAVE OPERATIONAL CONTROL OF THE EQUIPMENT. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE NOT RELIED AND ARE NOT RELYING ON ANY REPRESENTATION OR STATEMENT OF CONDITION OF THE EQUIPMENT MADE BY WELLS FARGO IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR PURCHASE OF THE EQUIPMENT.
D.Tax Liability. The amount of present or future sales, revenue, excise or other taxes applicable to the goods sold hereunder shall be added to the purchase price quoted and shall be paid by you or in lieu thereof, you shall provide Wells Fargo with an appropriate exemption certificate from any such taxes. You agree to save and hold harmless Wells Fargo from and against any and all federal, state, municipal and local license fees and taxes, personal property use and sales taxes, and from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, claims, actions and suits resulting therefrom and imposed upon, incurred by or asserted as a consequence of, the sale of the equipment to, or the ownership, possession, operation, or use of the equipment by you.
E.Payment Schedule; Equipment Removal. If you are the winning bidder, Wells Fargo will issue an invoice to you. All payments due hereunder in connection with a given purchase shall be made to Wells Fargo in U.S. dollars by wire transfer, ACH (Automated Clearing House) or certified check to such account or address as Wells Fargo may direct within 30 business days following the date of Wells Fargo’s invoice to you. You must remove the equipment from its current location within 14 days following your payment of Wells Fargo’s invoice. You are responsible for all freight, shipping and other costs related to removing and transporting the equipment to your desired destination. These costs include dismantling, special handling, loading, transportation costs and any permits required to move the equipment. Transfer of ownership and issuance of a Bill of Sale from Wells Fargo will be contingent upon your full compliance with the terms and conditions set forth herein.
F.Default. If you fail to make full payment of all amounts owed hereunder within 7 days of the due date or you fail to claim and remove the equipment within 14 days following payment of Wells Fargo’s invoice, you are in default. You agree that Wells Fargo may recover from you as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, the unpaid invoice amount, and may exercise any other right or remedy available by law. In addition, you agree to pay (a) our costs and expenses incurred as a result of your default (including equipment storage fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs), and (b) interest on amounts owed to Wells Fargo from the due date until paid at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the maximum amount permitted by law if less). Any deposit paid by you will be retained by Wells Fargo and applied against the amounts owed hereunder. You further agree that if you default, Wells Fargo may sell or otherwise dispose of the equipment as Wells Fargo deems appropriate in its sole discretion, and apply the proceeds to the amounts due hereunder.
