ScreenBid Terms and Conditions

Last Updated: December 1, 2014

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in ScreenBid, LLC (“ScreenBid,” “we,” or “us”). The terms and conditions set out below represent the only terms and conditions applicable to the use of Screenbid.com (the “Site”), including the purchase of Hollywood memorabilia and collectibles through the Site (“Items”) that are offered through auction pricing on behalf of third party studios (“Sellers”) and other services provided by us (together with the Site, our “Service”); provided that such terms and conditions may be modified or supplemented by information provided on the Site for particular auctions. These Terms and Conditions are a legally binding contract between you and ScreenBid regarding your use of the Service.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY. BY CLICKING “I ACCEPT”, OR BY USING THE SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS, INCLUDING THE SCREENBID PRIVACY POLICY (TOGETHER, THE “TERMS”). If you are not eligible, or do not agree to the Terms, then you do not have our permission to bid in auctions on the Site.

ALL SCREENBID SALES ARE CONDUCTED ON BEHALF OF THIRD-PARTY SELLERS. The statements made in any “Certificate of Authenticity” are the responsibility of the Seller.

ALL SALES ARE “AS IS” AND WITH ALL FAULTS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. You acknowledge that some Items offered for sale on the Service are inherently dangerous (e.g., weapons, sharp or broken objects, small Items that may be swallowed or ingested, or Items that may have latent defects, all of which may cause harm to a person) or may be inoperable (e.g., cell phones may not work).

INTERNATIONAL (NON-UNITED STATES) PURCHASERS WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY ANY APPLICABLE TAXES, IMPORT DUTIES, CUSTOMS FEES AND TARIFFS AT THE TIME OF DELIVERY. IF YOU REFUSE TO PAY, YOU AGREE TO PAY ALL COSTS OF RETURNINGYOUR ITEM TO SCREENBID AND AUTHORIZE SCREENBID TO CHARGE YOUR CREDIT CARD.

These Terms provide that all disputes between you and ScreenBid will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights under this contract, except for matters that may be taken to small claims court. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury, and your claims cannot be brought as a class action. Please review Section 21 below, titled “Dispute Resolution and Arbitration” for the details regarding your agreement to arbitrate any disputes with ScreenBid.

Eligibility. You must be at least 18 years of age to participate in a sale. By agreeing to these Terms, you represent and warrant that: (a) you are at least 18 years of age; (b) you have not previously been suspended or removed from the Service; and (c) your registration and your use of the Service is in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. If you are using the Service on behalf of an entity, organization, or company, you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative with the authority to bind that organization to these Terms and you agree to be bound by these Terms on behalf of that organization.
Accounts and Registration. To bid in an auction, you must register for an account. When you register for an account, you will be required to provide us with some information about yourself, such as your e-mail address or other contact information. You agree that the information you provide to us is accurate and that you will keep it accurate and up-to-date at all times. When you register, you will be asked to provide a password. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. If you have reason to believe that your account is no longer secure, then you must immediately notify us at support@screenbid.com.
Bidding
Generally. Submission of a bid constitutes a binding offer to purchase the Item for the amount offered in the bid, and on the terms herein and on the Site. All bids are final and irrevocable, and a bid will not be deemed withdrawn unless ScreenBid acknowledges receipt of the bidder’s intent to withdraw the bid and agrees to withdraw the bid. Minimum bids and bid increments will be posted for each auction. Bids entered for less than the posted minimum bid or bid increment will not be accepted. When identical bids are received, preference will be given to the first such bid received, provided that ScreenBid reserves the right to refuse to honor any bid or to limit the amount of any bid, in its sole discretion.
Bidding as Principal: When making a bid, you are accepting personal liability to pay the Total Purchase Price (defined below).
No Manipulative Practices. You may not engage in any manipulative or disruptive bidding practices, including without limitation “shill” bidding or any other practice designed to interfere with the natural progression of bidding or otherwise affect the ultimate sale price of any Item.
Reserve prices. Items may be offered subject to a reserve price, which is a confidential minimum price acceptable to the seller. If, following the completion of a sale, the highest bid does not meet or exceed the reserve price for the Item, ScreenBid may void the sale in its sole discretion.
ScreenBid’s Discretion/Bidding Disputes. ScreenBid, in its sole discretion, has the right to refuse any bid and to split or advance bidding in increments that it may choose. ScreenBid has the final say in the event of concern or doubt by ScreenBid about the validity of any bid, any error relating to bidding or any bid (including, but not limited to, error by ScreenBid), or any dispute between bidders. ScreenBid may choose, in its sole discretion, to continue bidding, refuse a bid, cancel a bid, determine the successful bidder, withdraw an Item, reoffer an Item, reopen bidding or restart the bidding, as the case may be. In any dispute, ScreenBid’s records, whether audio, visual, or written, are conclusive. Once made, a bidder may not retract or rescind any bid.
Payment and Shipping
Purchase Price. The total purchase price to be paid by the winner of the bid (the “Buyer”) is, and the Buyer acknowledges it is responsible for and agrees to timely pay, the sum of the final bid price (the highest bid acknowledged and accepted), plus a “buyer’s premium” of 24% of the final bid price, plus all applicable state and local sales and/or use taxes and license fees, plus any and all costs and expenses incurred on behalf of the Buyer, such as handling fees, shipping costs and insurance costs (collectively, the “Total Purchase Price”).
Payment. All sales are for cash in U.S. dollars, to be paid by check, wire transfer, cashier’s check, bank money order, PayPal, MasterCard, Visa, or American Express. Payment is due upon the close of the auction. Unless the winning bidder and ScreenBid agree otherwise within 72 hours of the close of the auction, ScreenBid will charge the winning bidder’s credit card the Total Purchase Price of the Item. Checks should be made payable to ScreenBid, LLC, 8569 Higuera Street, Culver City, California 90232. All payments are subject to a clearing period. Title to an Item does not pass to the Buyer, and the Item will not be released to a Buyer, until good and cleared funds in the amount of the Total Purchase Price are received by ScreenBid.
Shipping and Handling. Buyers are responsible for arranging shipment of all Items and must inform ScreenBid of their chosen shipping method within 72 hours of the closing of their sale. If a Buyer does not inform ScreenBid that the Buyer has arranged shipping within that time period, ScreenBid will ship and insure the Item for the full amount of the selling price at the customer’s expense. ScreenBid packages and ships each Item individually. Certain Items may be subject to additional shipping and handling fees as stated on the Site or otherwise disclosed to the Buyer.
Domestic. All Items shipped domestically will be subject to a $14.95 handling fee.
International. All Items shipped internationally will be subject to a $24.95 handling fee. ScreenBid will not falsify customs documents and is not responsible for any delay at customs.
Taxes. Sales taxes will be applied to all purchases shipped to California addresses, and Buyers are responsible for all taxes, import duties, customs fees, tariffs and other charges associated with international shipping.
Late Payments. Bidders will be deemed in default if funds sufficient to cover all amounts due with respect to a particular Item are not received in ScreenBid’s account within 7 days following the close of the auction. Any amounts owed to ScreenBid at that time shall bear interest at the highest rate permitted by law, and shall incur a late fee in an amount equal to 3% of the balance outstanding 7 days after the close of the auction. The Buyer agrees to pay all costs incurred by ScreenBid in connection with collecting the past due amount (including, without limitation, collection agency fees, court costs, and legal fees). Time spent on collections by ScreenBid’s in-house legal staff shall be charged at an hourly rate comparable to that of outside attorneys.
Security Interest. You acknowledge that Seller shall have a continuing first-priority security interest in all Items to secure payment of all amounts owed by the Buyers of such Items. Seller shall have the benefit of all rights of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C.) as adopted by the state of California, and Buyers will execute a UCC-1 financing statements at ScreenBid’s request as appropriate to secure Seller’s interest. ScreenBid is further authorized by Seller in the event of nonpayment to retain or take possession of any Items purchased by such Buyer but not yet delivered, and/or to retain any credit balance due to such Buyer as an offset against the amounts owed by such Buyer to ScreenBid or its affiliates.
Items for Sale
Descriptions of Property. All descriptions of the Items for sale or other statements related to such Items, including, but not limited to, descriptions on the Site, in announcements, press releases, or advertisements, or in any bill of sale or invoice, do not, and shall not under any circumstances be deemed to, create or constitute representations or warranties of any kind by ScreenBid or the Seller and none of the foregoing are a part of the basis of the bargain of the purchase and sale of any Item.
Certificate of Authenticity. A Seller may provide a “Certificate of Authenticity” regarding an Item and ScreenBid is not responsible for, and does not verify, the accuracy of statements made in that certificate.
Vehicle Sales. Vehicles are sold only as collector’s Items, and may not be suitable for use on the road. The Buyer of any vehicle who intends to use the vehicle on the road is responsible for determining roadworthiness and for complying with all applicable regulations regarding title, registration, insurance, emission control, and safety equipment. The Buyer assumes all risk of whether any such vehicle will or does comply, and ScreenBid shall not have any liability or responsibility of any kind for failure to comply or lack of roadworthiness by any vehicle. Buyers are responsible for determining whether or not an export permit is required to export a vehicle and for obtaining and paying the costs of any permits or licenses necessary to export any vehicle from the United States and/or import it into any other country, and for the payment of any import duty that may be levied by the country of import.

Certain features of the Service may permit users to upload content to the Service, including messages, reviews, photos, video, images, text, and other types of works (“User Content”) and to publish User Content on the Service. By posting or publishing User Content, you grant ScreenBid a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid right and license (with the right to sublicense) to host, store, transfer, display, perform, reproduce, modify for the purpose of formatting for display, and distribute your User Content, in whole or in part, in any media formats and through any media channels now known or hereafter developed, on the Site or otherwise in connection with the Service.

By using one of these tools, you agree that we may transfer that information to the applicable third-party service. ScreenBid does not control or endorse any such Linked Sites or the information, material, products or services contained on or accessible through them, and we are not responsible for any third party service’s use of your exported information.

Modification of Terms. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change these Terms on a going-forward basis at any time. If ScreenBid modifies these Terms, they will be published through the Service, with the effective date of the last revision indicated. Please check these Terms periodically for changes. If a change to these Terms materially modifies your rights or obligations, ScreenBid will make reasonable efforts to notify you of the change. For example, a message may be sent to your email address, if you have one on file, or the Service may generate a pop-up or similar notification when you log in for the first time after such material changes are made. Immaterial modifications are effective upon publication. Material modifications are effective 30 days after they are made available through the Service, except that disputes arising under these Terms will be resolved in accordance with the version of these Terms that was in effect at the time the dispute arose. Your continued use of the Service after revised Terms have become effective indicates that you have read, understood, and agreed to the current version of these Terms.
Ownership; Proprietary Rights. The Service is owned and operated by ScreenBid. You acknowledge and agree that the visual interfaces, graphics, designs, compilations, information, data, computer code (including source code or object code), products, software, services, and all other elements of the Service (“Materials”) provided by ScreenBid are protected by intellectual property and other laws. All Materials contained in the Service are the property of ScreenBid, the Seller, or our third-party licensors. Except as expressly authorized by ScreenBid, you may not make use of the Materials. ScreenBid, the Seller or our third-party licensors reserve all rights to the Materials not granted expressly in these Terms.

Indemnity. You agree that you will be responsible for your use of the Service, and you agree to indemnify and hold ScreenBid harmless from and against all losses, costs, liabilities and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of or related to your violation of any portion of these Terms or any applicable law or regulation.
Disclaimers; No Warranties
THE SERVICE, ALL MATERIALS AVAILABLE ON THE SERVICE, AND ALL ITEMS OFFERED FOR SALE OR SOLD THROUGH THE SERVICE, ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, WITHOUT WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY. SCREENBID AND THE SELLER DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION: (A) ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT; AND (B) ANY WARRANTY ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE.

SCREENBID AND SELLER DO NOT WARRANT THAT ANY ITEM WILL BE SAFE, FUNCTIONAL, OR FREE OF DEFECTS OR THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE, OR FREE OF ERRORS, VIRUSES, OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU USE THE SERVICE, AND BID ON OR PURCHASE ITEMS, AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK, AND THAT YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT RESULTS FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICE OR ITEMS.

SOME JURISDICTIONS MAY PROHIBIT A DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION.

Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT WILL SCREENBID BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR OTHER INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICE, OR TO YOUR PURCHASE OF OR INABILITY TO PURCHASE ANY ITEM THROUGH THE SERVICE, OR OTHERWISE UNDER THESE TERMS, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STATUTE, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT SCREENBID OR ITS HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGE. YOU AGREE THAT IF ANY LAWSUIT OR COURT PROCEEDING IS PERMITTED UNDER THESE TERMS, THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF SCREENBID IS LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE BUYER’S PREMIUM PAID BY YOU TO SCREENBID WITH REGARD TO THE PURCHASE OF AN ITEM OR $250.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

EACH PROVISION OF THESE TERMS THAT PROVIDES FOR A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS INTENDED TO AND DOES ALLOCATE THE RISKS BETWEEN THE PARTIES UNDER THESE TERMS. THIS ALLOCATION IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 17 WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

Release. In the event that you have a dispute with the Seller regarding an Item, regardless of the nature of such dispute, you release ScreenBid (including its affiliates, directors, officers, employees, contractors, and agents) from claims, losses, damages, and liabilities, including legal fees and expenses (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
Governing Law. These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to conflict of law principles. If a lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted under these Terms, you and ScreenBid agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within Los Angeles County, California for the purpose of litigating any dispute.
General. These Terms, together with the ScreenBid Privacy Policy, are the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between you and ScreenBid regarding your use of the Service. Except as expressly permitted above, these Terms may be amended only by a written agreement by the parties. You may not assign or transfer these Terms or your rights under these Terms without our prior written consent. We may assign these Terms to a successor to our business at any time without notice or consent. The failure to require performance of any provision will not affect our right to require performance at any other time after that, nor will a waiver by us of any breach or default of these Terms, or any provision of these Terms, be a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. Use of section headers in these Terms is for convenience only and will not have any impact on the interpretation of any provision. If any part of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable part will be given effect to the greatest extent possible, and the remaining parts will remain in full force and effect. Upon termination of these Terms, Sections 4, 5, 6, and 8 through 24 will survive.
Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and ScreenBid in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and ScreenBid agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND SCREENBID ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 21.1, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and ScreenBid will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting ScreenBid.
Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if such other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice”). ScreenBid’s address for Notice is: ScreenBid, LLC, 8569 Higuera Street, Culver City, California 90232. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or ScreenBid may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or ScreenBid must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, ScreenBid will pay you the highest of the following: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (ii) the last written settlement amount offered by ScreenBid in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (iii) $250.
Fees. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, ScreenBid will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Los Angeles County, California, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse ScreenBid for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
No Class Actions. YOU AND SCREENBID AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and ScreenBid agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
Modifications. If ScreenBid makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to ScreenBid’s address for Notice), you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to ScreenBid’s address for Notice, in which case your account with ScreenBid will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject will survive.
Enforceability. If Section 21.6 is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 21 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 21 will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 20 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
Consent to Electronic Communications. By using the Service, you consent to receiving certain electronic communications from us as further described in our Privacy Policy. Please read our Privacy Policy to learn more about our electronic communications practices. You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures, or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that those communications be in writing.
