To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you are responsible for any applicable sales, use, duty, customs or other governmental taxes, levies or fees (“Taxes”) due with respect to your purchase through our Services. Orders placed outside the U.S. may incur Taxes as determined by the customs agency within the destination country. We will collect applicable Taxes if we determine we have a duty to collect Taxes. We will present an estimate of Taxes we collect at checkout, except where we have clearly stated in writing that a price includes Taxes. For U.S. users, the actual Taxes charged may be adjusted from the amount shown at checkout. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates. You may have a duty to directly report and pay Taxes if we do not collect such Taxes.

You represent and warrant that you are authorized to use your designated payment method.

If any of the Products in your order are unavailable, we will only charge the prices, Taxes and other applicable charges associated with the Products that are included in the shipment. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.

Each Manufacturer may offer its own warranty, but unless otherwise stated on the product page, we do not offer a warranty for any Products sold via the Services. That means they are sold by us "as is" and "with all faults." If the Manufacturer offers a limited warranty for the product, it can usually be found on the Manufacturer’s website or with the product packaging. For any product sold via the Services, you agree that your remedy is solely with the Product Manufacturer and not Barrett Jackson.

12     Disclaimers Back to Top

Your use of the Products and Services is at your sole risk. Except as otherwise provided in a writing by us, the Products and Services and any content therein are provided “as is” and “as available” without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement.

13     Limitation of Liability Back to Top
  1. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Barrett-Jackson and the other Barrett-Jackson Parties will not be liable to you under any theory of liability—whether based in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, warranty, or otherwise—for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, punitive, or special damages or lost profits, even if Barrett-Jackson or the other Barrett-Jackson Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
  2.

14     Release Back to Top

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you release Barrett-Jackson and the other Barrett-Jackson Parties from responsibility, liability, claims, demands, and/or damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown (including, but not limited to, claims of negligence), arising out of or related to the acts or omissions of third parties, or disputes between you and other users of our Services. You expressly waive any rights you may have under California Civil Code § 1542 as well as any other statute or common law principles that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favor at the time of agreeing to this release.

15     Arbitration; Class Action Waiver Back to Top

Please read this section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Barrett-Jackson and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us, unless you opt out of arbitration by following the instructions set forth below. No class or representative actions or arbitrations are allowed under this arbitration provision. In addition, arbitration precludes you from suing in court or having a jury trial.

  1. No Representative Actions. Any dispute subject to this Section 15 (as described in (b) below) is personal to you and Barrett-Jackson, will be resolved solely through individual action, and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
  2. Arbitration of Disputes. Except for small claims disputes in which you or Barrett-Jackson seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or Barrett-Jackson seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property, you and Barrett-Jackson waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any other dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services, including claims related to privacy and data security, ("Disputes") resolved in court. For any Dispute that you have against Barrett-Jackson, you will first contact Barrett-Jackson and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to Barrett-Jackson by email at or by certified mail addressed to Barrett-Jackson, Legal Department, 15555 N. 79th Place, Suite A, Scottsdale, AZ 85260. The Notice must
    1. include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number;
    2. describe the nature and basis of the Dispute; and
    3. set forth the specific relief sought.
    Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and Barrett-Jackson cannot reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may submit the Dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All Disputes submitted to JAMS will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration before one arbitrator. Arbitration proceedings will be held in Maricopa County, Arizona, unless you are a consumer, in which case you may elect to hold the arbitration in your county of residence. For purposes of this Section 15, you will be deemed a "consumer" if you use the Services for your personal, family or household purposes. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, will be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available here; all other claims will be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available here (collectively, “JAMS Rules”), which are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
  3. The Parties acknowledge that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 15 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the "FAA"), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any Dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability. The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
  4. The arbitration will allow for the discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the Dispute. The arbitrator, Barrett-Jackson, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including, but not limited to, all information gathered, prepared and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the Dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
  5. For any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee (up to a maximum of $250 if you are a consumer), and Barrett-Jackson will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Company, Barrett-Jackson will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Barrett-Jackson agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Arizona and the United States sitting in Maricopa County, Arizona have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
  6. Any Dispute must be filed within one year after the relevant claim arose; otherwise, the Dispute is permanently barred, which means that you and Barrett-Jackson will not have the right to assert the related claim.
  7. (g) You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 15 by contacting us with the information provided at the end of the Terms. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 16.
  8. If any portion of this Section 15 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason,
    1. the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms;
    2. severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 15 or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 15; and
    3. to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.
    Further, if any part of this Section 15 is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 15 will be enforceable.

16     Governing Law and Venue Back to Top

These Terms and your use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Arizona, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Arizona or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties not subject to arbitration under Section 15 shall exclusively be submitted to the state or federal courts of Maricopa County, Arizona, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.

17     Modifying and Terminating our Services Back to Top

We reserve the right to modify our Services or to suspend or stop providing all or portions of our Services at any time. You also have the right to stop using our Services at any time. We are not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to use our Services.

18     Severability Back to Top

If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

19     Modifying these Terms Back to Top

We may make changes to these Terms from time to time. If we make changes, we will provide you with notice of such changes, such as by sending an email, providing a notice through our Services or updating the date at the top of these Terms. Unless we say otherwise in our notice, the amended Terms will be effective immediately, and your continued use of our Services after we provide such notice will confirm your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to the amended Terms, you must stop using our Services. Unless material changes are made to the arbitration provision under Section 15, you agree that modification of these Terms does not create a new right to opt out of arbitration

20     Miscellaneous Back to Top
  1. Other than any bidder or consignment agreement (or other written agreement) that you may have entered into with Barrett-Jackson, these Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Barrett-Jackson relating to your use of our Services. The failure of Barrett-Jackson to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. Any references to “including” will be deemed to mean “including without limitation.” The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity. You agree that communications and transactions between us may be conducted electronically.
  2. Under California Civil Code Section 1789.3, California residents are entitled to the following specific consumer rights notice: If you have a complaint regarding the Services that you think we have not adequately resolved, the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs may be contacted in writing at 1625 N.
