USER AGREEMENT -
This Agreement describes the terms and conditions applicable to your use of our services at ChoicePigeon. Please read to the very bottom, before deciding to agree or disagree with these terms.
A valid bid on an auction item is a legally binding contract. Do not use our services if you do not qualify or do not plan to honor such contracts, or if you are a minor. ChoicePigeon reserves the right to suspend or revoke membership services to anyone at any time at our discretion.

Joining and bidding on items at ChoicePigeon is totally free. We may change our Fees and the fees for our services from time to time. We will give at least 2 weeks notice of the changes by posting the changes on the site. All fees are quoted currancy of your country. You are responsible for paying all fees associated with using our service and our website and all applicable taxes.
CHOICE PIGEON'S RESPONSIBILITY
ChoicePigeon is acting as the venue for sellers to list items and buyers to bid on items, and therefore has 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 are not directly involved in the transaction between the buyers and the sellers. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release ChoicePigeon 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.
The information you enter on our site is guaranteed to be 100% safe and secure. We will never divulge any of your personal information (including credit card #s, phone numbers, address etc.) to anyone. Period. We will only share that information necessary to complete a transaction between a buyer and a seller; we will never release any other information to any other party (such as Credit card information or other billing information) unless required to do so by law or a government agency. You authorize us to divulge such information to such agencies of law or government that require us to do so.
Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, ChoicePigeon cannot and does not confirm each user's identity to a 100% certainty. There is no failsafe method available on the Internet today. Members who commit fraud or misrepresent themselves will not be permitted on the site. ChoicePigeon 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.
BIDDING & 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. 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.
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.
