DeltaBid or its affiliates may impose the limitations on or suspend or terminate the use of a Registered User’s Account at any time by giving no less than 24-hour notice to the Registered User; provided, however, that notice is not required for such termination if (a) in DeltaBid’s determination, there is any breach of the provisions of this Agreement and other terms, rules and policies for the uses of any services on a Service by the Registered User; or (b) DeltaBid has reasonable grounds to suspect that any information provided by a Registered User is untrue, inaccurate or is not current or complete, or (c) DeltaBid believes that the Registered User’s actions may cause financial loss or legal liability to such Registered User, DeltaBid’s other Users, or DeltaBid or its affiliates.If the Registered User is in breach of any provisions of this Agreement or other terms, rules and policies for uses of any services of a Service, DeltaBid also reserves the right to publish the records of such breach on a Service. If such breach involves any dishonest or fraudulent activities, DeltaBid also reserves the right to disclose the records of such breach to its affiliates and to request such affiliate to impose limitations on, suspect or terminate the Registered User’s of all or part of the services provided by such affiliates and to take other remedial actions such as to publish the records of such breach on the websites operated by or controlled by DeltaBid’s affiliates.
DeltaBid may at any time, in its reasonable discretion, impose limitations on suspend or terminate the use of a Registered User’s Account without being liable to the Registered User if the Registered User is in breach of any agreement or undertaking with any affiliate of DeltaBid upon written notice by such affiliate and such breach involves dishonest or fraudulent activities. DeltaBid shall have the right to publish the records of such breach on a Service. DeltaBid shall not be required to investigate such breach or request confirmation from the Registered User.
A Registered User may not sell, attempt to sell, offer to sell, give, assign or otherwise transfer an Account, User ID or Password to a third party without the prior written consent of DeltaBid. DeltaBid may suspend or terminate the Account of a Registered User or the transferee of a Registered User in the event of a sale, offer to sell, gift, assignment or transfer in violation of this Section.
Notwithstanding Section “Registered Users”, DeltaBid may refuse registration and deny the issuance of an Account and associated User ID and Password to any User for whatever reason.
Data from Third Party Sites
Registered Users use DeltaBid to retrieve data maintained online by third parties with which they have customer relationships, maintain accounts or engage in e-commerce transactions (“Account Information”). DeltaBid may work with one or more online marketplaces to access this data. You agree to provide DeltabBid with credentials necessary to retrieve information on your behalf from such third parties (“Access Information”), and you hereby grant DeltaBid permission to use the Access Information and Account Information your behalf for the purposes contemplated by this Agreement. You represent and warrant you have the right and ability to provide any such Access Information. You understand that DeltaBid does not review the data for accuracy, legality or non-infringement but instead is directed by its Registered Users. DeltaBid is not responsible for the data, content, products or services offered by or on third party sites, and does not guarantee that any such third party sites will continue to be made available within the Service; such sites may be removed or disabled by us at any time without notice to you.

DeltaBid cannot assume responsibility for the timeliness, accuracy, deletion, non-delivery or failure to store any user data, communications or personalization settings. For example, when displayed through the Bids view, part information is only as fresh as the time shown, which reflects when the information is obtained from such sites. Such information may be more up-to-date when obtained directly from the relevant sites. You can refresh your third-party site credentials through your Account settings.

Agreement to Arbitrate
First Try Customer Support. If you have any issues with the Service or DeltaBid, you must try to resolve the issue first through DeltaBid customer support.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. You and DeltaBid agree that the parties will go to court to resolve disputes relating to your or DeltaBid’s intellectual property (e.g., trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights or patents). Also, either party can bring a claim in small claims court either in San Francisco, California, or the county where you live, or some other place both parties agree on, if it qualifies to be brought in that court. In addition, if either party brings a claim in court that should be arbitrated or either party refuses to arbitrate a claim that should be arbitrated, the other party can ask a court to force the parties to go to arbitration to resolve the claim (i.e., compel arbitration). Either party may also ask a court to halt a court proceeding while an arbitration proceeding is ongoing.
Details of Arbitration Procedure.
Prior to filing any arbitration, both parties jointly agree to seek to resolve any dispute between the parties by mediation conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), with all mediator fees and expenses paid equally by the parties. If mediation is not successful, either party may initiate an arbitration proceeding with AAA. You can look at AAA’s rules and procedures on their website http://www.adr.org or you can call them at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration will be governed by the then-current version of AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”) and will be held with a single arbitrator appointed in accordance with the Rules. To the extent anything described in this agreement to arbitrate conflicts with the Rules, the language of this agreement to arbitrate applies.
Each party will be entitled to get a copy of non-privileged relevant documents in the possession or control of the other party and to take a reasonable number of depositions. All such discovery will be in accordance with procedures approved by the arbitrator. This agreement to arbitrate does not alter in any way the statute of limitations that would apply to any claims or counterclaims asserted by either party.
The arbitrator’s award will be based on the evidence admitted and the substantive law of the State of California and the United States, as applicable, and will contain an award for each issue and counterclaim. The award will provide in writing the factual findings and legal reasoning for such award. The arbitrator will not be entitled to modify this Agreement.
Except as provided in the Federal Arbitration Act, the arbitration award will be final and binding on the parties. Judgment may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Class Action Waiver. Both you and DeltaBid agree that any claims or controversies between the parties must be brought against each other on an individual basis only. That means neither you nor DeltaBid can bring a claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated action, or representative action. The arbitrator cannot combine more than one person’s or entity’s claims into a single case, and cannot preside over any consolidated, class or representative proceeding (unless both parties agree otherwise). And, the arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s or entity’s case can only impact the person or entity that brought the claim, not other DeltaBid customers, and cannot be used to decide other disputes with other customers. If a court decides that this class action waiver is not enforceable or valid, then the entire agreement to arbitrate will be null and void, but the rest of this Agreement will still apply.
U.S. Government Matters
You may not remove or export from the United States or allow the export or re-export of the Services or anything related thereto, or any direct product thereof in violation of any restrictions, laws or regulations of the United States Department of Commerce, the United States Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control, or any other United States or foreign agency or authority. As defined in FAR section 2.101, the software and documentation installed by Company on your Equipment (if applicable) are “commercial items” and according to DFAR section 252.227 7014(a)(1) and (5) are deemed to be “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation.” Consistent with DFAR section 227.7202 and FAR section 12.212, any use modification, reproduction, release, performance, display, or disclosure of such commercial software or commercial software documentation by the U.S. Government will be governed solely by the terms of this Agreement and will be prohibited except to the extent expressly permitted by the terms of this Agreement.
- DeltaBid and the User are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.
- If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced.
