The Deal Blitz software application and the Deal Blitz Site (as defined herein) (collectively, the "Services") are provided by Deal Blitz ("Deal Blitz", "we" or "us"). As used in these Deal Blitz Terms and Conditions (these "Terms and Conditions"), "you" or "your" refers to you as a user of the Services.
These Terms and Conditions are legally binding agreements. Please read them carefully before using or accessing the Services. By registering an account on the DealBlitz.com website (together with any successor website, the "Deal Blitz Site"), or by otherwise using or accessing the Services, you acknowledge and agree that:
If you do not meet any of the eligibility criteria listed above or are not willing to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, do not register an account with Deal Blitz and discontinue any use or access of the Services immediately.
Your right to use or access the Services is limited solely to a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable and freely revocable license to use and access the Services for entertainment purposes only. All rights not expressly granted to you in these Terms and Conditions are expressly reserved by Deal Blitz and there are no implied rights or licenses granted under these Terms and Conditions. All rights and licenses granted to you in these Terms and Conditions are expressly conditioned on your continued compliance with these Terms and Conditions. Deal Blitz employees and contractors, and their respective family members (defined as parents, spouses (including domestic partners), siblings and children) and any other persons residing in the same household as a Deal Blitz employee or contractor, may not under any circumstances use or participate in the Services.
You may not participate in the Services in collusion with any other user or person. Deal Blitz reserves the right, at any time and in its sole discretion, to permanently close the Account (as defined herein) of any user suspected of collusion or any other activity prohibited under these Terms and Conditions.
You will be required to register with Deal Blitz before you may participate in any Auction (as defined herein). In connection with the registration process, an account will be created in your name ("Account") and you will select a username and password for use in accessing the Services. You may have only one (1) Account with Deal Blitz. A valid physical address (P.O. boxes or similar addresses are not permitted) will be required in order to receive any products won or purchased with the site. You are expressly prohibited from creating any additional or duplicate accounts. Deal Blitz reserves the right to void auction wins and/or refuse shipment of any products, prizes or other auction items which Deal Blitz, in its sole discretion, determines were won through the use of an additional or duplicate account in violation of these Terms and Conditions. You must not provide misleading information when registering.
You will use your Deal Blitz username and password to access the Services. By logging into the Services or using your Deal Blitz username and password, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use such username and password to use and access the Services. You are solely responsible for the use of your username and password and for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password. As well as for any activities conducted using your username and password. Your chosen username must not be offensive, rude, disparaging or intended to deceive other users of the Services. Your username may not advertise for other websites or services or otherwise violate the Intellectual Property Rights (as defined herein) of any third party. If we receive information or become aware that your username is illegal or in breach of these Terms and Conditions, your Account may be disabled, suspended, or terminated.
YOU AGREE THAT ACCESS TO THE SERVICES IS EXPRESSLY LIMITED TO THE NAMED USER ON THE ACCOUNT ONLY. YOU MAY NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, ALLOW YOUR USERNAME OR PASSWORD TO BE USED BY ANY OTHER PERSON. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT, IN THE EVENT OF ANY VIOLATION OF THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION 2, WE HAVE THE RIGHT (IN ADDITION TO ALL OTHER RIGHTS OR REMEDIES THAT WE MAY HAVE AT LAW OR UNDER THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS) TO COLLECT, AND YOU WILL PAY IMMEDIATELY UPON DEMAND, AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO ONE THOUSAND AND NO/100 DOLLARS ($1000) PER VIOLATION AS A REASONALBLE ESTIMATE OF THE DAMAGES INCURRED BY DEAL BLITZ (THE AMOUNT OF WHICH COULD NOT OTHERWISE BE ASCERTAINED).
Deal Blitz reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to temporarily or permanently suspend or terminate your Account, without prior notice or liability, in order to maximize auction participation or in response to a suspected or confirmed violation of these Terms and Conditions, any laws, or the rights of any other users or third parties. Examples of unauthorized usage include, without limitation, the use of unauthorized third-party bidding or bid tracking software, the creation of multiple accounts or other fraudulent or collusive activity or behavior. You agree that if Deal Blitz, in its sole discretion, determines that you have breached or violated any of these Terms and Conditions, that Deal Blitz may terminate your Account immediately and without notice, and you shall have no right to use the Services at any time in the future, unless otherwise authorized in writing by Deal Blitz.
Bids are available for purchase by users in advance of their joining a Deal Blitz auction (each, an "Auction"). Once purchased, bids are nonrefundable. From time to time, free bids may be offered to users of the Services. Free bids are valid until the expiration date stated in the applicable promotion. Once you place a bid (whether purchased, free or otherwise) in an Auction, the bid is deducted from your Account, regardless of whether you win the Auction. The winner of an Auction is the last bidder recorded before the Auction ends. Auctions end thirty (30) seconds after the reserve price is met.
Each time you select an auction and place a bid, you will have thirty (30) seconds (your "Window") in which all the prize icons are visible. You can attempt to skillfully time your bids to land on and win the prize icons. If the reserve price is met and the 5-second countdown timer is initiated during your Window, you will see the countdown timer. However, you will not see the 5-second countdown timer if the reserve price is not met during your 30 second Window, thus ending the auction.
The indicator within the "Bid Now!" button is gray/black until you place a bid. Once you place a bid, the indicator turns orange indicating the start of your 30 second Window. As your Window approaches its expiration, the indicator will show a progression for orange back to gray/black. Once the indicator bar is fully gray/black that will end your 30 second Window and a pop-up indicator will appear stating "Not Eligible, Bid again to regain eligibility to win this auction!"
Bids can be won within the auction and will be noted as the orange circle with a 'B' icon inside. The Bids can be used to bid on the same auction they were WON within, or any other auction you choose. Points can be won within the auction and will be noted as the blue circle with the white star icon inside. These points can be used to purchase additional bids to continuing bidding on any auctions, they can be used to purchase WON auctions as well as purchase items within the Store.
If you did not win an Auction, you may still purchase the item being auctioned. Simply click the Buy It Now!" button on the live auction page. If you purchase an item you have bid on using the Buy It Now feature, you will purchase the item at the Retail Price listed within the auction page. In addition, the bids placed within this specific auction will be returned to your account minus your winnings (points and bid value) within the auction. The total number of bids returned to your account for the Buy It Now can be used towards another auction.
You may not purchase an item through the "Buy It Now" feature until you have purchased at least one (1) bid and placed at least one (1) bid in the Auction for the item you seek to purchase. Deal Blitz reserves the right to limit the number or type of products available for "Buy It Now" credit. Not all auctions will have a Buy It Now available.
Should you not honor a payment for any bids or products, you will be charged a returned payment fee in the maximum amount permitted by law. Deal Blitz reserves the right to restrict access to or disable or terminate your Account until all outstanding amounts have been paid in full, including any fees due to returned payment, etc., and to withhold any outstanding deliveries until payment in full is received. You may not obtain any money in exchange for bids. All bids purchased are non-refundable. If you ever believe that your Account does not reflect any bids that you have acquired, you must notify us within one (1) week of the date you claim to have acquired the bids. If you have no account activity for three (3) months, any purchased bids will be considered expired and will be deleted from your account.
Deal Blitz reserves the right, from time to time and in its sole discretion, change the price of bids, the format of any Auction or any other aspect of the Services, in each case without notice to you or any other user of the Services.
Because every Auction is unique and the results of all Auctions offered by Deal Blitz depend on the number of users participating in such Auctions and the skill of the users participating, the precise odds of winning any Auction are unavailable.
After an Auction has ended, you must pay the total price for such Auction to purchase the product. You must pay for the Auction within seven (7) days of the Auction end date. If you fail to do so, Deal Blitz may withdraw the offer to conclude the order and permanently revoke the winner’s right to pay for and receive delivery of the applicable Auction item. If Deal Blitz does so, all bids placed in such Auction will be deemed used and will be non-refundable. After paying the total amount due, you will receive an email confirmation that the product has been purchased.
Deliveries are made exclusively to the forty-eight (48) contiguous states of the United States, and to Washington D.C. Unless otherwise stated, delivery will be made directly from our supplier or fulfillment company to the address that you have provided at the time of checkout. Deal Blitz reserves the right to refuse shipment of any products, prizes or other auction items which Deal Blitz, in its sole discretion, determines were won through the use of an additional or duplicate account in violation of these Terms and Conditions. Delivery times vary and any estimated time of delivery that we may provide is only an estimate and should be used only as a general guide. Deal Blitz shall be entitled to involve third parties to satisfy its obligations without being required to notify you or any other user of the Services. Damage to any item from transport must be reported to Deal Blitz immediately upon receipt.
You agree that any item or order shall remain the property of Deal Blitz until such time as Deal Blitz has received payment for such item or order in full, and including any payments owed for bids used in the underlying Auction.
Deal Blitz allows winners the right to return an order in accordance with our Return Policy listed on the Deal Blitz Site, which may be updated and modified by Deal Blitz from time to time without notice.
A Deal Blitz system outage has occurred if no bids can be submitted in an Auction due to an unforeseeable disruption in a Deal Blitz system or network. In the case of a system outage, the affected Auction(s) will be temporarily paused, and all bidding progress will be recorded. After the disruption has been resolved, the Auction(s) will be continued. Deal Blitz is not responsible for any costs that may be incurred by you or any other user due to any system or network outage or issue. Deal Blitz reserves the right to cancel any Auctions that end due to a system or network error, bot bidders, employee or other non-eligible bidders, technical problems or any other similar reason.
Deal Blitz provides no guarantee of the constant and uninterrupted availability of the Deal Blitz Site or any technical systems relating to the Services. Deal Blitz shall not be liable for any damage incurred by you or any other Auction users or any third parties arising from any use of the Services. In particular, Deal Blitz shall not be liable for any damage that occurs or arises due to system outages on the network or computer you use to access the Deal Blitz site or system, bids not being received, processed or applied promptly, or not being considered as a consequence of technical or other errors.
