Auction Terms & Conditions PAUSE DISCLOSURE:
I'm not sure what is going on with the planet right now, but I have a family and 15 employees with families that have to eat. BidCal sells farm equipment that produces food, therefore, we are an "essential business". BidCal employees that can work from home will. Our office staff will continue to practice social distancing, wash their hands frequently and sanitize countertops and workplaces. As always, our auction will not have reserves or buybacks. However, if something occurs such as people start dropping like flies, the stock market takes another 15K point drop, the internet crashes because everyone is live streaming, or whatever else may happen, I am reserving the right to PAUSE the close of the auction to best protect the integrity of the auction business and the interest of my sellers.
