3. Use of personal information

A customer’s personal information is also used to make available more efficient support and to improve our content and our product range, as well as to tailor The Service’s content, layout and services. In addition, a customer’s personal information can be used for invoicing and to send important information to the customer, e.g. with regard to a change in charges or updating of price list, sales conditions or The Terms and Conditions.
External companies are occasionally engaged to supply certain services to The Customer. These can e.g. function as web hotels, conveyors or information intermediaries for The Customer. The company may only access such personal information that is necessary in order to carry out its undertakings. All such companies are bound by agreement and undertake not to use information for other purposes.

If The Customer does not wish to receive these messages, he/she can refrain by informing us in writing.
4. Catalogue / Object description / Estimates
In both the catalogue and the object description stated estimates are based on a market valuation of the item prior to the auction and should only serve as guidance for the purchaser. The price at which an item is finally sold can essentially exceed or fall short of the estimate. Information in the catalogue as well as the object description could be changed owing to intervening circumstances. Any changes or supplements are posted at the time of the auction or stated in the object description. In cases where a change can be considered to be of significance to the value of the item Cy-proplus retains the right to remove the item from The Service and possibly return with a new auction list.
5. Bidding and purchasing for Internet auctions
All Objects are value and estimated in Euro currency
The Customer who wishes to bid has the right to participate if he/she meets the Terms and Conditions.

The bidder has the right to place a bid that at least corresponds to the amount stated in the auction, or place a bid which corresponds to the highest amount that the Bidder is willing to pay for the item (“Max bid”). When a Bidder utilizes the opportunity to place a Max bid, The Service automatically starts proxy bidding, which bids as advantageously as possible, on behalf of the Bidder up to the Max Bid. The winning bid could, therefore be lower than the stated Max Bid. If an auction ends with two equally high bids it is the first bid received by The Service that wins. If a Bidder places a bid which is lower than the reserve price The Service automatically starts the proxy bidding, which will bid up to the reserve price or to the Max Bid, whichever comes first. A bid wins if it is equal to or exceeds the reserve price. All bids are binding for the Bidder. A binding agreement is established between cy-proplus and The Bidder who after the auction has ended has placed the Winning bid (“The Purchaser”). Applicable terms and conditions of the purchase are explained in point 4 above.

Cancellation or change to the absentee bid must be made in writing and reach cy-proplus no later than the day before the auction.
