3. Price; Payment Terms.  The purchase price for the Purchased Items is determined at auction (the “Purchase Price”).  Purchaser shall pay the Purchase Price to the Company’s designated agent in accordance with the payment terms stated on the auction site.  

4. Taxes.  All taxes, including, but not limited to, federal, state, provincial, local, or foreign net or gross income, gross receipts, net proceeds, sales, use, ad valorem, value added, withholding, excise, property, deed, stamp, alternative or add-on minimum, environmental, profits, windfall profits, transaction, transfer, license, lease, service, service use, occupation, energy, capital, premium, and any other taxes, assessments, customs duties, fees, levies or other governmental charges of any nature, whether disputed or not, together with any interest, penalties, additions to tax, or additional amounts with respect thereto, if any, due as a result of the purchase, sale, or transfer of the Purchased Items under this Agreement, whether imposed by Law on the Company or Purchaser, will be borne by Purchaser.  The Company will duly and timely withhold, or cause to be duly and timely withheld, all taxes required to be withheld by it in accordance with any Law from any amount paid, or credited, or deemed to be paid or credited by it to or for the account of Purchaser, and will duly and timely remit, or cause to be duly and timely remitted, to the appropriate Governmental Entity such taxes required by Law to be remitted by it.

6. Title and Risk of Loss.  Title to and risk of loss of each Purchased Item will pass to Purchaser (i) when Company’s designated rigger takes possession of the Purchased Items to lift onto Purchaser’s truck, if, due to the size of the Purchased Items, the Purchased Items require Company’s designated rigging vendor to put the Purchased Items onto Purchaser’s truck, or (ii) when Company loads Purchased Items onto Purchaser’s truck or any third-party Transporter’s truck at any of the Company’s locations, if no rigging is required.  Company shall have the right to inspect all transportation arrangements made by Purchaser and reject any which are unsatisfactory to Company. 

7. Indemnification

(A) PURCHASER SHALL AT ITS OWN EXPENSE PROTECT, DEFEND, INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS THE COMPANY AND ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, PARTNERS, AFFILIATES, SHAREHOLDERS, DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS (EACH AN “INDEMNITEE”), AGAINST ANY LOSS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO ANY ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING: (I) ANY PURCHASED ITEM AFTER TITLE TO SUCH ITEM HAS PASSED FROM THE COMPANY TO PURCHASER UNDER THIS AGREEMENT; (II) THE PRESENCE OF ANY PURCHASER PARTY ON ANY SITE; (III) ANY MISREPRESENTATION OR BREACH BY PURCHASER OF ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY IN THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY RELATED AGREEMENT OR CERTIFICATE, OR ANY ALLEGATION THAT WOULD, IF PROVEN, ESTABLISH SUCH A BREACH; (IV) ANY BREACH BY PURCHASER OF ANY COVENANT OR OTHER AGREEMENT IN THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY RELATED AGREEMENT OR CERTIFICATE, OR ANY ALLEGATION THAT WOULD, IF PROVEN, ESTABLISH SUCH A BREACH; (V) THE ACTS, OMISSIONS, NEGLIGENCE, GROSS NEGLIGENCE, OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT OF ANY PURCHASER PARTY; (VI) PROPERTY DAMAGE OR BODILY INJURY OR DEATH, AND FINES, PENALTIES, OR ASSESSMENTS ISSUED BY ANY GOVERNMENTAL ENTITY, IN EACH CASE TO THE EXTENT ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE FAILURE BY ANY PURCHASER PARTY TO COMPLY WITH LAW; AND (VII) ANY CLAIMS BY ANY GOVERNMENTAL ENTITY THAT DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISE OUT OF OR RESULT FROM THE FAILURE OF A PURCHASER PARTY TO PAY, AS AND WHEN DUE, ALL TAXES, DUTIES, LEVIES, ASSESSMENTS, TARIFFS, IMPOSTS, FEES OR CHARGES OF ANY KIND (TOGETHER WITH ANY AND ALL INTEREST, PENALTIES, ADDITIONS TO TAX AND ADDITIONAL AMOUNTS IMPOSED WITH RESPECT THERETO) IMPOSED BY ANY GOVERNMENTAL ENTITY.  AN INDEMNITEE MAY MAKE A CLAIM FOR INDEMNIFICATION UNDER THIS SECTION 7 BY PROVIDING NOTICE TO PURCHASER OF ANY CLAIM THAT DOES NOT INVOLVE A THIRD-PARTY CLAIM.  THE CLAIM SET FORTH IN THE NOTICE REQUIRED UNDER THE PRECEDING SENTENCE IS CONCLUSIVELY DEEMED A LOSS OF PURCHASER IF (A) THE INDEMNITEE HAS PROVIDED THAT NOTICE AND (B) PURCHASER DOES NOT DISPUTE ITS LIABILITY WITHIN 30 DAYS AFTER RECEIPT OF THAT NOTICE. IF A CLAIM HAS BEEN DEEMED A LOSS OF PURCHASER UNDER THIS SECTION 7(A), PURCHASER SHALL PAY TO THE INDEMNITEE ON DEMAND THE AMOUNT OF THE LOSS AND ANY OTHER RELATED PAYMENTS TO WHICH THE INDEMNITEE IS ENTITLED UNDER THIS SECTION 7. 

(B) AN INDEMNITEE SHALL PROVIDE NOTICE TO PURCHASER WITHIN A REASONABLE PERIOD OF TIME AFTER RECEIVING WRITTEN NOTICE FROM A THIRD PARTY OF THE COMMENCEMENT OF ANY LEGAL ACTION OR WRITTEN NOTICE OF ANY CLAIMS OR THREATENED CLAIMS AGAINST THAT INDEMNITEE FOR WHICH PURCHASER MAY BE LIABLE (A “THIRD PARTY CLAIM”).  ANY FAILURE BY AN INDEMNITEE TO PROVIDE NOTICE WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME WILL NOT AFFECT PURCHASER’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS SECTION 7, UNLESS AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT THAT PURCHASER HAS SUFFERED SOME MATERIAL PREJUDICE DUE TO INDEMNITEE’S DELAY.  IF PURCHASER WISHES TO ASSUME THE DEFENSE OF THE THIRD-PARTY CLAIM, IT SHALL DO SO BY SENDING NOTICE OF THE ASSUMPTION TO THE INDEMNITEE.  IF PURCHASER ASSUMES THE DEFENSE OF A THIRD-PARTY CLAIM, PURCHASER SHALL INDEMNIFY THE INDEMNITEE FROM ALL LOSSES SUFFERED AS A RESULT OF THAT THIRD PARTY CLAIM.  PROMPTLY AFTER SENDING THE NOTICE, PURCHASER SHALL CHOOSE AND EMPLOY INDEPENDENT LEGAL COUNSEL ACCEPTABLE TO THE INDEMNITEE.  AFTER SENDING THE NOTICE, SUBJECT TO SECTIONS 7(C) AND 7(D), PURCHASER IS ENTITLED TO CONTEST, PAY, SETTLE OR COMPROMISE THE CLAIM AS IT DETERMINES, EXCEPT THAT IF ANY OF THE INDEMNITEE'S INSURANCE POLICIES PROVIDE COVERAGE FOR THE CLAIM, THAT CONTROL WILL BE EXERCISED IN COORDINATION WITH ANY INSURER PROVIDING THE APPLICABLE INSURANCE COVERAGE. 

(C) NOTWITHSTANDING SECTION 7(A), AN INDEMNITEE IS ENTITLED, BUT NOT OBLIGATED, TO: (I) PARTICIPATE IN THE DEFENSE OF A THIRD PARTY CLAIM; AND (II) DEFEND A THIRD PARTY CLAIM WITH COUNSEL OF ITS OWN CHOOSING AND WITHOUT THE PARTICIPATION OF PURCHASER IF: (A) PURCHASER FAILS OR REFUSES TO DEFEND THE THIRD PARTY CLAIM; (B) PURCHASER AND INDEMNITEE HAVE MATERIALLY DIVERGENT INTERESTS IN THE OUTCOME OF THE THIRD PARTY CLAIM; OR (C) REPRESENTATION OF PURCHASER AND THE INDEMNITEE BY THE SAME COUNSEL WOULD, IN THE OPINION OF THE INDEMNITEE, CONSTITUTE A CONFLICT OF INTEREST. 

(D) IF PURCHASER ASSUMES THE DEFENSE OF A THIRD-PARTY CLAIM, IT MAY NOT AFFECT ANY COMPROMISE OR SETTLEMENT OF THE THIRD-PARTY CLAIM WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF THE INDEMNITEE, AND THE INDEMNITEE HAS NO LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO ANY COMPROMISE OR SETTLEMENT OF ANY THIRD-PARTY CLAIM EFFECTED WITHOUT ITS CONSENT.  NOTWITHSTANDING THE PRECEDING, PURCHASER MAY EFFECT A COMPROMISE OR SETTLEMENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY CLAIM WITHOUT THE INDEMNITEE’S CONSENT IF ALL OF THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS ARE MET: (I) THERE IS NO FINDING OR ADMISSION OF ANY VIOLATION OF LAW OR ANY VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF ANY PERSON AND NO EFFECT ON ANY OTHER CLAIM THAT MAY BE MADE AGAINST THE INDEMNITEE; (II) THE SOLE RELIEF PROVIDED IS MONETARY DAMAGES THAT ARE PAID IN FULL BY PURCHASER; (III) THE COMPROMISE OR SETTLEMENT INCLUDES, AS AN UNCONDITIONAL TERM, THE CLAIMANT’S OR PLAINTIFF’S RELEASE OF THE INDEMNITEE, IN FORM AND SUBSTANCE SATISFACTORY TO THE INDEMNITEE, FROM ALL LIABILITY IN RESPECT OF THE THIRD PARTY CLAIM; (IV) THE COMPROMISE OR SETTLEMENT INCLUDES CONFIDENTIALITY PROVISIONS IN FORM AND SUBSTANCE SATISFACTORY TO THE INDEMNITEE; (V) PURCHASER HAS COORDINATED THAT COMPROMISE OR SETTLEMENT WITH ANY INSURER AS REQUIRED UNDER ANY APPLICABLE INSURANCE POLICIES PROVIDING COVERAGE FOR THAT THIRD PARTY CLAIM; AND (VI) THE INDEMNITEE DOES NOT BELIEVE THAT THE MATTER IN QUESTION MAY INVOLVE POTENTIAL CRIMINAL LIABILITY AGAINST THE INDEMNITEE.

(E) NOTWITHSTANDING SECTION 17, ANY INDEMNITEE THAT IS NOT A PARTY TO THIS AGREEMENT IS A THIRD-PARTY BENEFICIARY OF THIS AGREEMENT IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS TERMS.  ANY MODIFICATION OF THIS AGREEMENT IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS TERMS IS BINDING UPON THOSE INDEMNITEES, AND ANY ACTION TAKEN OR CONSENT GIVEN BY THE COMPANY IS BINDING UPON THOSE INDEMNITEES FOR PURPOSES OF THIS AGREEMENT.  NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT, THE OBLIGATIONS OF PURCHASER UNDER THIS SECTION 7 WILL SURVIVE THE CONSUMMATION, COMPLETION OR TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT. 

8. Limitation of Liability.  UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL THE COMPANY BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF PROFITS) ARISING FROM ANY CLAIM WHATSOEVER, WHETHER BASED ON TORT, WARRANTY, CONTRACT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.  THE COMPANY’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY SHALL NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY PURCHASER TO THE COMPANY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR THE PURCHASED ITEMS RELATED TO THE CLAIM. THE RELEASES, INDEMNITIES, WAIVERS, ASSUMPTIONS OF AND LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITIES AND REMEDIES IN THIS AGREEMENT APPLY, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, EVEN IN THE EVENT OF FAULT, NEGLIGENCE, OR STRICT LIABILITY OF THE PERSON RELEASED OR INDEMNIFIED, WHOSE LIABILITY IS LIMITED OR ASSUMED, OR AGAINST WHOM RIGHTS ARE WAIVED.  THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THIS SECTION 8 IS CONSPICUOUS AND SATISFIES THE EXPRESS NEGLIGENCE RULE. 

9. Warranties Disclaimer.  The Company is not a manufacturer of the Purchased Items and is not in the business of selling items like the Purchased Items in the ordinary course of its business.  THE PURCHASED ITEMS ARE BEING TRANSFERRED TO PURCHASER “AS IS, WHERE IS” AND WITH ALL FAULTS.  THE COMPANY MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY WHATSOEVER, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE PURCHASED ITEMS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE DESIGN OR CONDITION OF THE PURCHASED ITEMS, THE MERCHANTABILITY, DURABILITY, SUITABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OF THE PURCHASED ITEMS, THE QUALITY OF THE MATERIAL OR WORKMANSHIP OF THE PURCHASED ITEMS, AND THE COMPANY HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY SUCH REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY (WHICH DISCLAIMER PURCHASER HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGES).  THE COMPANY WILL NOT BE LIABLE OR RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DEFECTS, EITHER PATENT OR LATENT (WHETHER OR NOT DISCOVERABLE BY PURCHASER) IN THE PURCHASED ITEMS, OR FOR ANY DIRECT OR INDIRECT DAMAGE TO PERSONS OR PROPERTY RESULTING THEREFROM, OR FOR PURCHASER’S LOSS OF USE OF THE PURCHASED ITEMS OR FOR ANY INTERRUPTION IN PURCHASER’S BUSINESS CAUSED BY PURCHASER’S INABILITY TO USE THE PURCHASED ITEMS FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER.

11. Termination for Convenience. Company shall have the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement for convenience at any time by written notice to Purchaser. Company shall determine an appropriate adjustment to the price for Purchased Items affected by the notice of suspension or termination.
