Terms and Conditions Guiding Your Experience

Last Modified: 24 July 2020

This document contains important information regarding your rights and obligations, as well as conditions, limitations, and exclusions that apply to you. Please read it carefully.

By accessing or using the digital platforms (as defined below), you accept and agree to be bound by the Terms and Conditions for Website and Digital Platform Use (‘Terms of Use’). Pursuant to which you agree that disputes between you and us will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration and you waive your right to participate in a class action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration and you represent that (a) your access to and use of the digital platforms will be in accordance with these Terms of Use and all applicable laws, rules and regulations and (b) you are of legal age to enter into a binding contract. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy, you may not access or otherwise use the Digital Platforms.

The following Terms of Use are entered into by and between you and Salcedo Auctions (‘Salcedo Auctions’ or ‘we’ or ‘us’ or ‘our’ or other similar pronouns) and, together with any documents incorporated herein by reference, govern your access to and use of the Salcedo Auctions website at www.salcedoauctions.com whether accessed through the Salcedo Auctions website (desktop or mobile) and/or Salcedo Auctions applications for mobile and tablet devices (collectively, the ‘Digital Platforms’). For the avoidance of doubt, your use of certain areas, services or features of the Digital Platforms may be subject to additional terms, which will be posted or otherwise made available to you in connection with such area or feature. By way of example, your purchase of non-auction products through the Salcedo Auctions Digital Platforms will be governed by the applicable Terms of Sale, and your participation in online auctions shall be governed by the Conditions of Sale applicable to the relevant auction.

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it. If our website is acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that we may continue to sell products to you. You will know if these Terms of Use have been revised since your last visit to the Digital Platforms by referring to the “Last Modified” date at the bottom of this page. If you do not agree to the current version of the Terms of Use, your sole and exclusive remedy is to refrain from accessing or otherwise using the Digital Platforms.

When you access or use the Digital Platforms, provide your e-mail address to a Salcedo Auctions representative, or send us e-mails, you are communicating with us electronically. In so doing, you consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by e-mail or by posting notices on Digital Platforms. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communication be in writing.

If you decide to access linked third-party websites, you do so at your own risk.


Liability Disclaimers

The materials and content on the website may contain inaccuracies or typographical errors. Except as may be separately specifically provided with respect to a particular sale, Salcedo Auctions makes no representations about the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of the materials and content or about the results to be obtained from using the website and the materials.
