TFLbids connects those offering cars and trucks for sale (“Sellers”) and those looking to acquire cars and trucks (“Bidders”). TFLbids acts as a connecting service only; the actual contract for sale for each car listed on the Website is directly between the Seller and the winning Bidder.
Before acquiring a car or truck from any Seller, Bidders are responsible for making their investigations regarding the Seller Car. TFLbids is only responsible for connecting Sellers and Bidders, and shall not be responsible for the quality or sale-worthiness of any car or truck, and does not transfer ownership of the care or truck. TFLbids similarly shall not be responsible for ensuring that information (including credentials) any bidder or Seller provides about himself or herself or about any car/truck a Seller is offering is accurate or up-to-date. Each Seller acknowledges and agrees that they shall make reasonable efforts to complete the sale of their vehicle if there is a winning bid. Each Bidder acknowledges and agrees that if they are the winning bidder in an auction through the Website, their bid is binding on the Bidder and Bidder is responsible for all applicable government fees and taxes for the vehicle won through such bid. Notwithstanding the foregoing, TFLbids does NOT control the actions of any Bidder or Seller, and Sellers are not our employees, contractors or agents. If Buyer or Seller does not complete the sale of a vehicle for which a winning bid has been made, TFLbids shall be entitled to retain the listing fee.
TFLBIDS DOES NOT DIRECTLY OFFER THE SELLER CARS. YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT TFLBIDS DOES NOT SUPERVISE, DIRECT, CONTROL OR MONITOR THE SELLER CARS AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY FOR THE SELLER CARS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF QUALITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR COMPLIANCE WITH ANY LAW, REGULATION, OR CODE.
Sellers may not remove a car made available for auction on the Website before the end of such auction. While a Seller Car is listed on the Website, Seller may not list or make available such Seller Car on any other auction, dealership, listing service or publication.

Buyer Purchase Conditions
You are responsible for reading the full item listing before making a bid or committing to buy. A bid or offer through the Website initiates a non-binding transaction representing a buyer's serious expression of interest in buying the seller's item and does not create a formal contract between the buyer and the seller.
If you are the winning bidder for a car listed on the Website, you shall pay us a fee (a “Buyer’s Fee”) equal to 5% of the winning bid amount listed on the Website. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for each winning bid on the Website, the minimum Buyer’s Fee is $225 and the maximum Buyer’s Fee is $5,000. All Buyer’s Fees are non-refundable. We do not transfer legal ownership of the vehicle from the seller to the buyer.
You must register with a credit card in order to bid on TFLBids.com. Your credit card is simply used to verify you as a serious bidder. You will NOT be charged unless you WIN an auction. If you win, we ONLY charge your credit card for 5% of the winning bid amount (a minimum of $225, up to a maximum of $5000). You do NOT pay for the entire purchase with your credit card on file.
We reserve the right to charge for certain or all features of the Website in the future. We will notify you before any services you are then using begin carrying a fee, and if you wish to continue using such services, you must pay all applicable fees for such Website.
If you have a dispute with one or more users, you release us (and our affiliates and subsidiaries, and our and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

The limitation of liability set out above does not apply to liability resulting from our gross negligence or willful misconduct. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL TFLBIDS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, (B) ANY SUBSTITUTE GOODS, SERVICES OR TECHNOLOGY, (C) ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF (I) ONE-HUNDRED ($100) DOLLARS OR (II) THE AMOUNTS PAID AND/OR PAYABLE BY YOU TO TFLBIDS IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THIS APPLICABLE CLAIM OR (D) ANY MATTER BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL.
