When making a bid, a bidder accepts personal liability to pay the winning bid price, plus all applicable sales taxes, if any, and other charges unless it has been explicitly agreed in writing with One Drop before the commencement of the auction that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to One Drop and that One Drop will only look to the principal for such payment.

One Drop will not accept any cancellations from buyers and will not refund any amounts paid in respect of the lots. Purchases that are subject to future fulfilment, such as travel or entertainment items, depend on the schedules of both the buyer and the donors of the lots.
