Privacy and Information Disclosure
LiberalEstates Participation and Disqualification
You may not use LiberalEstates if you are under the age of 13 or if your LiberalEstates membership has been suspended or terminated.
The User has to provide a legitimate email address during the registration process for LiberalEstates to authenticate the User and prevent future misuse of the service. We will also send the User the email for any notification. In general, the user shall be liable for all activities that are undertaken using the user account together with the associated password.
User accounts created during registration are non-transferable. Any abuse of the user account will inevitably result in the disqualification of the User and may lead to criminal proceedings. LiberalEstates may at any time, exercise sole discretion to suspend or permanently exclude users from it’s services. LiberalEstates will decide upon such exclusion if and insofar as, in the reasonable opinion of LiberalEstates, a user has breached a LiberalEstates provision, violated any laws or infringed upon the rights of third parties, or LiberalEstates has another justified interest in such for the protection of other Users or to prevent manipulation of any kind, for example if bids are not given, unauthorised bidding software is used, or several user accounts are set up by the same User.
Furthermore, LiberalEstates reserves the right in its absolute discretion to restrict the number of bids in which a User may participate or may win.
LiberalEstates has the right to disqualify a user and/or his winnings if LiberalEstates deems that a particular user or users have used unfair means to win an auction.
You will not hold LiberalEstates responsible for any loss you may incur as a result of using LiberalEstates.
The Asking Process
The asking price for ALL items is nil (ZERO). This means that all items should be given FREE of charge. An offer submitted by a user constitutes an offer from that User (or Giver) to offer the item out for free to another User (Taker). The giver will not be able to ask for an item listed by him. Each new offers starts off a new time ending time. The item ending time for each of the item is shown on the screen. LiberalEstates reserves the right to change the times at any time. LiberalEstates can add or remove products from the LiberalEstates.org website at anytime without notice, including items which are already in progress.
The winning User is selected the user offering the item.
In the event of any dispute occurring, LiberalEstates’s decision on who the winner is, shall be final.
While we will use our reasonable endeavours to maintain an uninterrupted service and continuous access to our services, we cannot guarantee this and we do not give any promises or warranties (whether express or implied) about the availability of our services. Operations of our sites may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control. In the event of any technical problem (third party or other) affecting the LiberalEstates.org platform, the countdown timers for all (or some) live items will be paused until the issue has been resolved. Item listings will continue once the system is brought back up. Should auctions close prematurely due to any technical problem, affected auctions may be reposted. Alternatively, LiberalEstates has the right to restart all item listings from the beginning, once the technical problem has been rectified.
End of Bid Mechanism:
A bid is ended either when the time the giver specified at the time of entry had elapsed or the giver can no longer wait for the duration of the bid (a winner should be selected from the bidders) or LiberalEstates terminating the bid.
Notification, Acceptance and Postage
After the auction has ended and the winner is selected, all the users who signifies their interest in the item will receive notifications. The winner will then receive an email with the information needed to collect the item such as the contact details of the giver. This information will also be available on the My LiberalEstates page of the User. LiberalEstates may recommend some related services to the bidders in the emails. In the event that the winner has not confirmed an interest to take the item within 24 hours of the item listing ending and the giver is not willing to wait, another user can be selected and notified.
Delivery and Postage Payment
Unless otherwise agreed, the taker will pick up the item from the giver house or make alternative delivery arrangement with the giver. If the winner agrees to pay for postage (which should be reasonable) through our service and the giver agrees to post the item, the giver will post the item as soon as LiberalEstates confirms that the postage has been paid by the taker. The giver will receive the delivery fee when the winner confirms the receipt of the item. LiberalEstates may involve a third party in delivery of the item. LiberalEstates is not liable for any payment made or not made by users.
The item descriptions on LiberalEstates.co.uk are provided according to the best ability of the User and might not constitute contractually stipulated features and characteristics, but rather serve only to provide information. Images of products may differ from those actually supplied.
You may cancel or withdraw your bid or post before the bid ends. A bid that has ended CANNOT be cancelled.
Only the members involved in a transaction may post a rating. Only the winning user may rate the giver and the giver rating the winner.
We are continually seeking to update and improve the site. Therefore, we may make changes to any part of the site and these conditions and you will be bound by changes to these conditions from the time you next access the site.
Be aware! It is the responsibility of each User when arranging for pickup of any item to be appropriately aware of the potential risk of having a stranger come to your home to pick something up or going into somebody’s home. LiberalEstates assumes no responsibility for this risk. If you are concerned about meeting people when alone in the house, you could arrange for a drop-off in town, or leave the item at your door-step, or have a friend or relative with you.
