TERMS & CONDITIONS
Welcome to Soulbid's User Agreement.
This agreement describes the terms and conditions applicable to the use of our services at Soulbid and our general principles. We may amend this agreement at any time by posting the amended terms on our site. Except as stated below, all amended terms shall automatically be effective 14 days after they are initially posted on our site. This agreement may not be otherwise amended except in writing signed by you and Soulbid. This agreement was effected on 20th December 2013.
Our services are available only to individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, our services are not available to minors (under 18). If you do not qualify, please do not use our services. Further, our services are not available to temporarily or indefinitely suspended Soulbid members.
Fees and Services.
Registration, Buying and Bidding on records at Soulbid is free of charge.
Our Fees Policy is available at Fees
We may change our Fees Policy and the Fees for our services from time to time. Changes to the policy are effective after we provide you with at least fourteen (14) days' notice of the changes by posting the changes on the announcements board. However, we may choose to temporarily change our Fees Policy and the Fees for our services for promotional events (for example, free listing days) and such changes are effective when we post the temporary promotional event on the announcements board. When you list a record, you have an opportunity to review and accept the Fees that you will be charged for the use of our listing services. We may in our sole discretion change some or all of our services at any time. In the event we introduce a new service, the Fees for that service are effective at the launch of the service.

Soulbid is Only an Arena
Our site acts as the arena for sellers to list items (or, as appropriate, solicit offers to buy) and buyers to bid on items. We are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to buy items. We cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction. We will however take a dim view of persistent offenders.
Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, Soulbid cannot and does not confirm each user's purported identity. We do endeavour to evaluate Buyers and Sellers to help protect you from an undesirable element however we would also encourage you to communicate directly with potential trading partners. You may also wish to consider using a third party escrow service or services that provide additional user verification.
Because we are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release Soulbid (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
We do not control the information provided by other users which is made available through our system. You may find other user's information to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or deceptive. Please use caution, common sense, and practice safe trading when using our site. Please note that there are also risks involved in dealing with foreign nationals, underage persons or people acting under false pretence.
Bidding and Buying.
If you are the highest bidder at the end of an auction (meeting the applicable minimum bid or reserve requirements) and your bid is accepted by the seller, you are obligated to complete the transaction with the seller, unless the item or transaction is prohibited by law or by this Agreement. By bidding on an item you agree to be bound by the conditions of sale included in the item's description (or linked to from the description) so long as those conditions of sale are not in violation of this Agreement or unlawful. Bids are not retractable except in exceptional circumstances such as when the seller materially changes the item's description after you bid, a clear typographical error is made, or you cannot authenticate the seller's identity.
Listing & Selling.
Listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures and sound bites you supply to our site (or that you link to from our site) that describe your item for sale (or as appropriate, for which you are soliciting offers to buy). All listed items must be listed in an appropriate category.
If you receive at least one bid at or above your stated minimum price (or in the case
of reserve auctions, at or above the reserve price), you are obligated to complete the
transaction with the highest bidder upon the auction's completion, unless there is an
exceptional circumstance, such as:
(a) the buyer fails to meet the terms of your listing (such as payment method), or
(b) you cannot authenticate the buyer's identity.
Without limiting any other remedies, Soulbid may suspend or terminate your account if you are found (by conviction, settlement, insurance or escrow investigation, or otherwise) to have engaged in fraudulent activity in connection with our site.
Neither bidders nor sellers may manipulate the price of any item nor may you interfere with other user's listings or auctions.
