The owner and seller of the Sale Item is BLUESCOPE STEEL LIMITED (ABN 16 000 011 058) (“the Promoter”). By bidding in the auction, individuals agree to these terms and conditions.

  3. Bid For Good ABN 96 984 486 617 (“Bid For Good”) is the Promoter’s agent managing the auction on behalf of and at the direction of the Promoter with the permission of the Australian Council of State Emergency Services ("ACSES").

  5. The auction is only open to Australian residents. The Promoter and Bid for Good may restrict the auction at any time, at their discretion, to prequalified bidders, as per clause 4.

The authorisation deposit will be deducted and held by PayPal for the duration of the auction, however, after the close of the auction Bid For Good will void the PayPal authorisation of all non winning bidders (and the deposit will be released) and void the PayPal authorisation of the winning bidder following receipt of full cleared payment from the winning bidder.

  9. The Promoter may, at any time and in its reasonable discretion, also conduct further screening of bidders, including requesting additional documentation on a bidder’s ability to make payment or a bidder’s location. Only genuine bids and bidders with sufficient funds to purchase the item (at the highest amount that they choose to bid) are allowed.

  11. The Promoter reserves the right to reject a request to bid or to cancel already approved bids in its sole discretion, acting reasonably, where it believes a breach of these Terms and Conditions has occurred.

  13. The Promoter’s decision regarding any aspect of this auction is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

  15. To the extent permitted by law, the Promoter shall not be responsible for any bid that is not processed due to technical problems or delays.

    1. It/he/she has read and understands these terms;

    3. It/he/she has full authority to engage in the transaction;

    9. It/he/she did not rely on any representations made by Bid For Good or the Promoter other than as made on this eBay listing.

  19. The terms of the auction also include eBay’s terms and conditions.

  21. The bidder who places the highest bid as at the end of the auction will be deemed to be the winning bidder, subject to verification (“Buyer”). The Buyer must make payment of the balance for the Sale Item by PayPal or Direct Bank Deposit into the account nominated by the Promoter within three (3) working days of the completion of the auction. PayPal payments attract a merchant fee from PayPal which will be deducted from the winning bid before proceeds are remitted to ACSES, however if the winning bidder pays by bank transfer then this will avoid any such merchant fees being deducted. Full payment instructions will be provided to the winning bidder at the conclusion of the auction. If payment is not made by this time, without prejudice to any of its other accrued or contingent rights and subject to the applicable laws, the Promoter may in its absolute discretion:

    1. cancel any uncompleted contract with the Buyer and re-commence the auction;

    3. cancel any uncompleted contract with the Buyer and enter into discussions with the next highest bidder;

  25. The Sale Price will be held on trust until the Sale Item is delivered to the Buyer.

  27. Subject to clause 15, payment for this item is non-refundable.

  29. In the unlikely event that the Sale Item becomes unavailable for any reason, the Promoter will notify the Buyer and the Sale Price will be refunded to the Buyer.

  31. Any period or date for delivery of the Sale Item stated by the Promoter is an estimate only and not a contractual commitment. The Promoter will use its reasonable endeavours to meet any estimated dates for delivery of the Sale Item but, to the extent permitted by law, will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by the Buyer or any third party for failure to meet any estimated date.

  33. The Promoter will arrange for the Sale Item to be delivered to the Buyer, to an address in Australia at a time and date as agreed with the Buyer. If the Buyer is unavailable to accept delivery at the agreed time and date, any additional costs of storage and redelivery may become the responsibility of the Buyer, as determined by the Promoter acting reasonably.

  35. The risk in the Sale Item and all insurance responsibility for theft, damage or otherwise will pass to the Buyer immediately on the Sale Item being delivered to the Buyer or when delivery is deemed to have occurred under clause 17. The Sale Item will be delivered in two parts, and it will be the responsibility of the Buyer to assemble the Sale Item (given the weight of the Sale Item, a minimum of two people will be required to move the Sale Item). Full instructions regarding assembly will be provided with the Sale Item.
