All payments must be received no later than two business days after notification of winning bid. If payment is not received within two working days, the buyer's account will be suspended until re- authorized by NPA.

9. LISTING
In order for vehicles to be numbered in the live auction, they must be dropped off at least two days prior to the auction. If you would like to list a vehicle for sale, you must provide certain information regarding the vehicle before NPA posts the listing on the Site, including without limitation the year, make, model, VIN, mileage, condition and title information as well discrepancies about the vehicle. Prior to posting of your listing, you must provide to NPA - via the Site, facsimile at (858) 513-1599, or email at info@npauctions.com - a copy of the title or other legal documents for such vehicle that evidences your ownership or control of the vehicle to NPA’s satisfaction. You acknowledge that you are responsible for all information and material that you submit for posting on the Site as well as the title paperwork submitted to NPA (each, a “Submission”) and that you, and not NPA, will have full responsibility and liability for each such Submission. You appoint National Powersport Auctions as your attorney in fact to complete all necessary documents, as needed, to transfer ownership as required by law.

You represent and warrant that (i) you are the sole and exclusive owner of and have good, valid and marketable title to each vehicle for which you provide a Submission, (ii) all information in each Submission is complete, truthful and accurate and does not contain any misleading information; (iii) each vehicle submitted by you is free and clear of all liens, encumbrances and claims, and (iv) such Submissions do not violate, infringe or misappropriate any third party intellectual property, proprietary, privacy or publicity rights. Nothing in a Submission will be considered confidential information and may be used by NPA and for any purpose.

If you post a listing on this Site, your listing will be subject to the review and approval of NPA.

10. BIDDING
Most units are sold without reserve, however we do have the right to post a reserve price on any vehicle posted for sale. A reserve price is a hidden price, known only to us and the seller, which is the minimum price required to sell the unit. We reserve the right to refuse a sale or re-post a unit if the buyer is not in good standing or there is a discrepancy in the vehicle's information discovered prior to the sale date.

A bidder using NPA's online bidding system (not Simulcast) has the option to include a start and a maximum amount he or she is willing to bid, in addition to an optional bid increment, on each unit. The site will automatically bid for the bidder against other incoming bids, up to the specified maximum amount and in the increments the bidder presets. At all times a bidder can view the current high bid and the length of time till close of an item, in addition to extensive search capabilities. The site's pages may need to be refreshed to view changes to a unit's time remaining or other bids that have been received.

NPA's ESale site will automatically escalate a bidder's current bid amount as needed to beat competing bids or to meet the reserve price, up to the bidder's maximum bid in effect at that time. Tie bids, should they occur at any time during the bidding process, will be awarded automatically to the bidder with the earliest bid activity. The close time for each unit may be subject to dynamic closing, as stated on the details page for a unit. Dynamic closing, when active, will extend the closing time for a unit as needed until there is 5 minutes of no bidding activity, unless otherwise indicated. This allows all bidders the opportunity to continue bidding if last-minute bids are received and they wish to increase their maximum bid amount.

11. CLOSING A PURCHASE
In the event an auction closes, the winning bidder shall be obligated to complete the purchase transaction with the seller for the applicable vehicle. All bidders represent and warrant that they submit all bids in good faith and they shall complete the purchase transaction if they are the winning bidder, and all bidders represent that they are capable of completing the transaction. NPA will issue the winning bidder an invoice for the purchase price plus any applicable buyers’ fees. NPA will collect the invoiced amounts from the buyer in accordance with the payment terms described in this Agreement. Upon receipt of the invoiced amounts from the buyer, NPA will forward the title paperwork received from the seller to the buyer. In addition, within three (3) business days after receipt of the invoiced amounts from the buyer, NPA will issue a check or initiate a wire transfer to the seller for the purchase price less any sellers’ fees owed to NPA.

NPA will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.

You hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of the courts located within San Diego County, California for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.

• Arbitration Option - For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provider mutually agreed upon by the parties.
