1. TrueNorthAuctions.ca  is a Venue: TrueNorthAuctions.ca offers a venue for vendors to offer items for sale by online auction formats and for buyers to purchase these items. The item(s) offered through the auction are provided on the basis of the representations made by the vendor. TrueNorthAuctions.ca makes no representations or warranties and there are no conditions of any kind, express or implied, statutory or otherwise, with respect to the goods and services offered through the auction sales process, or with respect to any transactions conducted through the auction sales process, including without limitation implied warranties of merchant ability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement, any implied warranty arising from a course of dealing or usage of trade and any obligation, liability, right, claim or remedy in tort or breach of contract including negligence. Since we are a venue, we do not assume any liability or responsibility for any disputes between vendors and buyers. We also cannot guarantee that a vendor or buyer will consummate any sale and vendors and buyers both agree that this is a risk that they assume. You agree to release TrueNorthAuctions.ca and related and associated companies and their officers, directors, agents and employees from claims, demands and damages of every kind and nature arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

2. Restrictions: Any employees and representatives of the vendor of the item being bid upon, their immediate families and those with whom such employees and representatives are domiciled may only bid on items not provided by Vendor.

4. Bidding and Buying: If you are the highest bidder in one of the online auctions, you are obligated to complete the transaction with the vendor and to pay the cost of the item. You should also know that bidding on an item is an irrevocable offer to buy the item at the price bid and your confirmed bid can only be retracted if you have submitted your formal bid retraction request to our customer service not less than 4 hours before the action closes and only under one or more of the following circumstances:

  • You made a typographical error when placing a bid amount.
  • You cannot reach the vendor via e-mail, or your question to the vendor is returned as undeliverable, or the vendor responds with a request to sell to you directly off-line.

Please see our FAQs for an explanation of how to retract a confirmed bid.

You cannot retract a bid if:

  • You have placed bids on a similar item.
  • You have changed your mind.
  • You state that you cannot pay for the item.

All successful bidders will receive a confirmation email from the appropriate vendor that outlines the transaction process.
