The Parties agree, and Buyer consents, that Auctioneer has a lien on all items purchased by Buyer at auction as security for payments due under this Agreement and is authorized to file and record any and all documents and instruments necessary to effectuate and/or perfect such lien. No item may be removed from the premises until Auctioneer receives full payment of all amounts due hereunder. Payment for all purchases must be made by PayPal, Visa, Master Card, Discover, or American Express. Bidder agrees not to dispute a credit card charge made in accordance with this Agreement. Bidder is responsible for all expenses incurred for any charges that are reversed by a credit card company.

Auctioneer at its discretion reserves the right to refuse any bid from any bidder and not to recognize a bidder. 3. DISPUTES: The highest bidder acknowledged by Auctioneer shall be deemed the buyer of the item auctioned. If a dispute arises between two or more bidders, the Auctioneer reserves the right and the discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the item in dispute. The Auctioneer's designation of a buyer shall be final. If Auctioneer fails to deliver an awarded item for reasons set forth in this paragraph, then Auctioneer will only reimburse the amount paid for such awarded item. If any dispute arises after the sale, Auctioneer's sales records shall be conclusive as to the buyer, the amount of the highest bid, and in all other respects. 4.
