Acceptance of the Terms of Use

Welcome to Bid4Birds!

These terms of use are entered into by and between You and Bid4Birds, LLC (“Company,” “we,” or “us”). The following terms and conditions, together with any documents they expressly incorporate by reference (collectively, “Terms of Use”) govern your access to and use of https://www.bid4birds.com, including any content, functionality, and services offered on or through https://www.bid4birds.com (the “Website”), whether as a guest, registered user, Seller, or Bidder.

Please read the Terms of Use carefully before you start to use the Website. By using the Website, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms of Use. If you do not want to agree to these Terms of Use you must not access or use the Website.

This Website is offered and available to users who are 18 years of age or older. By using this Website, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with the Company and meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use the Website.

Changes To Our Terms of Use

We may revise and update these Terms of Use from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Website thereafter. However, any changes to the dispute resolution provisions set out in Governing Law and Jurisdiction will not apply to any disputes for which the parties have actual notice on or before the date the change is posted on the Website.

Your continued use of the Website following the posting of revised Terms of Use means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page from time to time when you access this Website so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.

We Connect Sellers and Bidders

Bid4Birds connects those offering aircrafts, aircraft parts, and memorabilia (“Product(s))” for sale (the “Sellers”) and those looking to purchase such Products (the “Bidders”). Our Services act as a meeting place between Sellers and Bidders. However, the contract for sale, for the Product available for sale by Seller through our Services and Website is directly between the Seller and the winning Bidder. We only provide a platform to connect Sellers to Bidders, but sales agreements for Products are solely between the Seller and winning Bidder. 

Before bidding on, acquiring, or agreeing to purchase a Product from any Seller, Bidders are responsible for determining and evaluating the suitability of the Product. We are only responsible for connecting Sellers and Bidders. We are not responsible for ensuring the quality or other standard for any Product on the Website. We are not responsible for ensuring the accuracy of information provided about a Product on our Website by the Seller or Bidder, including the accuracy of credentials of a Product. Seller acknowledges and agrees that they shall make reasonable efforts to complete the sale of their Product if they accept a winning bid. Bidder acknowledges and agrees that if they are the winning bidder in an auction through the Website, the bid is binding on them, and Bidder is responsible for all applicable government fees and taxes for the Product. We do not control the actions of users of our Website, including the actions of Bidders, Sellers, registered users, or guests. Sellers on our Website are not our employees. 

Once a Seller has placed a Product up for auction through the Website, they may not remove the Product until the auction has ended. While a Product is listed for auction on the Website, Seller may not list or make available such Product on any other auction, dealership, listing service, publication, or website providing services similar to or the same as ours.

WE DO NOT DIRECTLY OFFER THE SELLER PRODUCT. YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE DO NOT SUPERVISE, DIRECT, CONTROL, OR MONITOR THE SELLER PRODUCT AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY FOR THE SELLER PRODUCT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF QUALITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR COMPLIANCE WITH ANY APPLICABLE LAW, REGULATION, OR CODE.

Accessing Our Website and Account Security

We reserve the right to withdraw or amend this Website, and any service or material we provide on the Website, in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Website is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Website, or the entire Website, to users, including registered users.

You are responsible for both:

  • Making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Website.
  • Ensuring that all persons who access the Website through your internet connection are aware of these Terms of Use and comply with them.

To access the Website or some of the resources it offers, you may be asked to provide certain registration details or other information. It is a condition of your use of the Website that all the information you provide on the Website is correct, current, and complete. You agree that all information you provide to register with this Website or otherwise, including, but not limited to, through the use of any interactive features on the Website, is governed by our Privacy Policy , and you consent to all actions we take with respect to your information consistent with our Privacy Policy.

If you choose, or are provided with, a user name, password, or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and agree not to provide any other person with access to this Website or portions of it using your user name, password, or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your user name or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information.

We have the right to disable any user name, password, or other identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms of Use.

Information About Other Users

You may not collect any information from or relating to another user (“User Information”) on the Website, when offering or bidding on Products, or otherwise, beyond what is necessary to complete your diligence and the transaction. Once an auction has concluded, you must destroy or erase all User Information you obtained from or about the user. It is your responsibility to collect, use, maintain, and transmit all User Information in compliance with all applicable laws.

The Cost of Our Services

It is free to register for our Website’s services (“Services”) but in order to use some of our Services you may be required to pay a fee. If you decide to use certain Services of ours, you agree to the Fees terms set forth below and on our How it Works Page. We may amend our Fee terms from time to time.

Fees

For Sellers: 

We offer three different listing packages that best fit your needs as a Seller. You will incur no additional fees beyond that of the listing package you purchased, following a sale of your Product. If a winning bidder backs out of payment for your Product(s), we will pay you a portion of our commission fees received for that Product. For more information go to How it Works.

For Buyers:

If you win a bid for a Product listed on our Website, you will be required to pay us an auction fee (“Auction Fee”). For aircraft purchases, the Auction Fee will equal 5% of the purchase price (up to a maximum of $5,000). For memorabilia, parts, and avionics purchases, the Auction Fee will equal 8% of the purchase price. As the winning bidder, the hold on your credit card will be charged as payment for the Auction Fee after the auction ends, once we verify that you are the highest bidder and that reserve is met. 

Our Fees are non-refundable. However, you may receive a refund on Whelon products offered through our Website. All of our customers are responsible for paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all necessary taxes, duties, and any other governmental assessments associated with their purchase through our Services and Website, and we are not responsible for any such taxes, duties, or other governmental assessments that you may incur.
