This Part applies in accordance with the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
This Part will apply to some contracts between a buyer and a seller made through our services, but not to all such contracts. Most importantly, this Part will not apply:
- if the contract is not a “distance contract” within the meaning of those Regulations (that is, “a contract concluded between a trader and a consumer under an organised distance sales or service-provision scheme without the simultaneous physical presence of the trader and the consumer, with the exclusive use of one or more means of distance communication up to and including the time at which the contract is concluded”); or
- to a “public auction” within the meaning of those Regulations (that is, “a method of sale where (a) goods or services are offered by a trader to consumers through a transparent, competitive bidding procedure run by an auctioneer, (b) the consumers attend or are given the possibility to attend in person, and (c) the successful bidder is bound to purchase the goods or services”).
