CONDITIONS OF ARTICLES SOLD: All items are sold "AS IS, WHERE IS." Please inspect items for yourself during our preview times or via photos. We do not guarantee the safety or regulatory compliance of any items, which may include infant and child products. CLAIMS: We are not responsible for the acts or omissions of the Seller. No claims (e.g., an item was mislabelled) will be allowed after removal of items from the premises. PURCHASING: All items listed in the auction are subject to ALSTON BID's acceptance or rejection of the highest bid. If for any reason ALSTON BID is unable to complete the sale of any purchase to bidder or provide such purchase free and clear of liens, even if the bidder was given notice that he is the winning bidder and purchaser, bidder agrees that ALSTON BID may terminate the purchase/agreement, in which case ALSTON BID'S only liability shall be the return of any monies actually paid by bidder toward that item. STAGGER and SOFT CLOSE: Items will stagger close every thirty seconds, in succession. To prevent a bidder from 'sniping', all bids made in the last minute of the auction will force an item to stay open for an additional 2 minutes [soft close]. This will continue until all bidding has ceased. NOTIFICATION: You can choose to be notified by email during the auction if you have been outbid. Please note that outbid notifications are NOT sent out DURING THE LAST TWO HOURS of the sale. INVOICING WINNERS: All payments will be in Canadian Funds.

RECORDS: In the unlikely event of a dispute, you agree to accept our records and information. STRATEGY: We recommend that ALL BIDDERS put in their maximum bid when placing a bid online. This does not mean you will have to pay the amount you bid - you only pay one bid increment more than the last highest bid - and only up to your maximum bid.
