OFFICIAL AUCTION RULES

Following is generally the way an auction at the AuthenticCollector.com works, although additional information might appear on website screens. We reserve the right to change the auction rules from time to time, including per auction listing, at our sole discretion.

PAYMENT & YOUR REQUEST AND CONSENT TO OUR RETENTION OF YOUR PAYMENT INFORMATION

Before making a bid you must supply us information about the credit card (or other payment method we might allow from time to time) to which any WINNING BID will be charged. If you register your payment method, such registration will be your consent to the Retained Payment Method Consent that appears below. Do not register to bid if you do not want to provide that consent.

Only valid Visa credit cards are an acceptable payment method and any (if any) refunds will be credited to the same card in our discretion. By designating or registering a payment method, you represent, warrant and agree that you:

  1. have provided accurate information about a payment method that is valid and has a balance sufficient to cover a winning bid;
  2. authorise us to verify your information and payment method (which we may do, among other ways, by making a small charge (e.g., $ or £ 1.00) to your card temporarily -- but once validity is indicated the charge will be eliminated from your actual card statement);
  3. are authorised to use the designated method;
  4. authorise us to charge your order (including all amounts dues such as taxes, shipping and other amount due hereunder) to your payment method; and
  5. will keep your payment method and information valid and accurate. If your payment method cannot be verified, is invalid, or is not otherwise acceptable, your purchase (including WINNING BIDS) may be suspended or cancelled in our sole discretion. You agree that we may submit charges for processing even if your payment method has expired by the time we submit it. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your purchase. Your contract for your payment method (e.g., your credit card agreement with your credit card issuer) governs your payment method so you should refer to that agreement (not this one) with respect to your rights and liabilities as a payment method holder (such as a cardholder). You agree to make and keep a copy of records relating to your order such as your order confirmation page.

RETAINED PAYMENT METHOD CONSENT

You may not bid on or purchase an item without first providing a payment method. If we allow you to register your payment method, that means you want us to keep your payment information on file for use in subsequent auctions. By registering, you request us to do that. You also agree that we may charge to your payment method each subsequent purchase made on the Site using your credentials (e.g., password) until you remove your payment information. You may remove it by following the removal instructions provided once we allow registration or by contacting us at customerservice@authenticcollector.com. If you remove it before your purchase is complete, however, you will need to timely supply a substitute payment method in order to complete that purchase.

In case we need a signed consent from you, you agree: (a) to adopt your password as a symbol of your signature, and (b) that entering your password in a session using the retained information will be your signature for purposes of signing this Registered Payment Method Consent and/or ratifying any earlier signatures. The Website Terms and Conditions require you to guard your password and not share it with others; if you register a payment method, this is particularly important.

BUY NOW

The BUY NOW section of the Site offers items for purchase at fixed prices. Product listings within the Buy Now catalogue may appear to be similar to those offered in the Official Auction but will typically contain a differentiating characteristic, such as a unique limited edition number in the series for a limited edition item. BUY NOW items are made-to-order and your purchase(s) will be final and non-refundable. All prices in BUY NOW include Taxes but Shipping and Handling are extra where applicable (as confirmed at checkout).

ADDITIONAL TERMS

Nature of the Site. Items available on the Auction Website are not provided or intended for ordinary use and some may not be new. For example, an autographed rugby ball may be used or new, but in either case it is not provided as a ball that should be used for everyday use; it is assumed that the person acquiring the rugby ball will not use it but will instead treat it much like a treasured picture or other keepsake. For those items that are used -- they are not new because someone or a team of interest to you or others has already used them and may even have damaged them.

Order Fulfillment Issues. In the unlikely event we are unable to complete fulfillment of an order from the Site, either in whole or in part, due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control or for any other reason, you agree that no compensation or replacement(s) will be issued. You will be entitled to a 100% refund related to the unfulfilled item(s) in question where payment has been previously made.

No Return/Refund Policy. Except to any extent otherwise required by law or for reasons stated within the Exchanges and Return policy, all sales are final and do not come with a right to a refund or exchange.

Colours. Every effort has been made to portray the colours of our products that appear on the Site and in the Online Catalogue as accurately as possible. However, because the actual colours you see depend on the monitor you are using, Pursuit cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any colour will be completely accurate.

Our Right to Correct Errors. From time to time there might be information on the Site that contains an inaccuracy such as a typographical error, mistake or omission (collectively, “Inaccuracy”), including any relating to item descriptions, pricing, availability or other information. We reserve the right to correct any Inaccuracy even if an auction has already occurred or any fixed price item has been sold. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Even when there is no Inaccuracy, the item descriptions are intended to provide information only -- they are not intended to be express warranties and you agree not to rely upon them as such.

Pricing. All prices for the Auction Website are shown in the currency as shown on the listing page and are valid and effective only for items auctioned/offered and shipped from North America or the United Kingdom; taxes and any (if any) shipping and handling charges are always additional unless otherwise indicated. All items are subject to availability, quantity limits and your compliance with the Rio 2016 Auction Terms and Conditions. Subject to applicable law, we reserve the right to reject all or part of a WINNING BID without notice if we believe there has been a violation.

Place of Acceptance. If your bid or fixed price offer is accepted, acceptance is subject to (a) verification that your designated payment method is valid and has a sufficient credit or other balance to cover your full bid or offer and all other amounts due under the Pursuit Terms and Conditions, and (b) your full compliance with the Pursuit Terms and Conditions and with any additional conditions in disclosures made on Pursuit 3 Group or in the listing for the item (including any links from the foregoing). Acceptance will be deemed accepted by us at our office. If we do not receive payment within 24 hours we may suspend or cancel your interest in the item you offered to purchase without further notice, and you agree that we may do whatever we want with the item (e.g., sell it to someone else, keep it or anything else) without any accounting or liability to you.

Shipping and Handling. Before placing a bid in the auction or purchasing a fixed price item at the Site, please refer to our Shipping and Deliveries for important details related to delivery and fulfillment of all purchases and orders.
