Every transmission over the Internet travels a different route and can be delayed by a variety of factors, including the bidders own computer. The time lapse between submission of a bid and its registration can vary by several seconds. Bids are queued by our host computer in the order received. Bid positions are awarded on a first come first served basis. Bids are time stamped by the host computer with the time received. To be accepted, bids must be received by the host computer prior to closing. In the event of malfunction by our host computer the auction process will be stopped. If the malfunction has not affected the sale of livestock or merchandise sold prior to the malfunction the items will be considered sold. Auction of remaining lots will be completed upon correction of the malfunction. Bidding will be open, with no bid positions awarded upon resumption of the auction.
