1. Introduction to SpaceExcess.com

About SpaceExcess.com: SpaceExcess.com is an online marketplace for nearly the entire spectrum of space and aerospace industries. SpaceExcess.com provides auctions and fixed-price sales for excess space industry manufacturing inventory, overruns, cancelled program hardware, new parts for space systems. The Site is tailored to aerospace and space industries, as well as collectors of aerospace and space exploration artifacts.

This User Agreement and Listings on Our Site: The terms and conditions on which SpaceExcess, LLC ("SpaceExcess") offers Users access to, and use of, the SpaceExcess.com website (the “Site”) and other related services (“Services”; including estimated valuations, best type of sales solution, shipping and legal referrals, etc.) are based on this User Agreement. With respect to each specific auction or sale of items, the terms specific to that auction or sales event are described in the listing of those items (each a “Listing”). Certain Listings on certain marketplaces may include a “Notice to Purchasers” or a similar written disclosure containing terms and conditions specific to that auction or sale. For example, a Listing may include a Notice to Purchasers defining clearance dates, currency accepted for payment, payment dates and removal deadlines. Each Listing is incorporated by reference into this User Agreement for purposes of that specific auction or sales event described in that Listing. This User Agreement takes priority over any terms in a Listing in the event of a conflict between the terms and this User Agreement.

SpaceExcess simply provides an online marketplace. SpaceExcess does not own or sell any items on our site. All sales are directly between the Seller and the Buyer. All sale warranties and product information are the responsibility of the Sellers, including any export control information or classifications. SpaceExcess is not a broker under the ITAR and does not provide any product information to Buyers.

2. Rules for All Users

We will not be responsible for lost, delayed or misdirected notices in the event you do not update your information in a timely manner.

We may refuse our services to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. You may be permanently banned from our Site if you provide false information when registering, such as a false name or fraudulent contact information. You may be permanently banned from our Site if you are the successful Bidder and do not honor your auction bid.

Restricted Parties: You represent that you and any business for which you are acting as an agent are not listed on the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Persons, Entity or Unverified Lists, the U.S. Department of State’s Debarred and Nonproliferation Lists, or any of the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons lists, any European Union sanctions list, the United Kingdom HMT list, any United Nations sanctions list, or similar or successor lists, (collectively “Restricted Party Lists”), and that if it is discovered that you were on a Restricted Party List, or acting on behalf of a party on one at the time you bid, any sale resulting from your bid is void, and you are liable to us and the Seller for all damages resulting from your misrepresentation. All parties to the transaction on the Site will comply with all applicable sanctions requirements.

You represent and warrant that you are not located in an embargoed or sanctioned country nor are you acting on behalf of any person or entity subject to sanctions issued by the U.S. government or the government where the item is located.

Export Control Compliance: It is the policy of SpaceExcess to comply with all applicable export control laws. SpaceExcess is not a Buyer, a Seller, or a broker of Listings. Therefore, the information provided herein and on the Site is to assist Buyers and Sellers with export compliance. Export control laws restrict the transfer and export of certain types of information, technology, and other items. Both Sellers and Buyers are responsible to ensure that all transactions comply with all applicable U.S. laws and regulations before any sale/purchase. Buyers and Sellers are advised to ensure that an item(s) can be exported, if that is the intent of both parties, before it is purchased from the Seller. You accept and expressly assume full responsibility for determining export, re-export, and transfer licensing requirements for any item you purchase and end use and end-user prohibitions.

3. Access to our Services and Site

Electronic Auction: Buyer and Seller acknowledge that transactions on this Site are conducted electronically and the Site’s hardware and software may malfunction without warning.

No Professional Advice: Any information supplied by any of our owners, officers, directors, employees or agents, in any form whatsoever, is intended solely as general guidance on the use of our Services and our Site and does not constitute legal, technical or compliance advice.

4. Privacy Policy

Your personal identifying information will be protected as per the SpaceExcess Privacy Policy, which is incorporated, by reference, into this User Agreement.

5. Seller Rules

Requirements to be a Seller: In order to participate as a Seller in an auction or sales event, you must:

  • Agree that there are no contingencies to your auctions or sales events other than those stated in this User Agreement and, with respect to a specific auction or sales event, in that Listing;
  • Deliver items sold by you within expected shipping and handling times as posted in the Listings;
  • Not sell any counterfeit, stolen, or prohibited items as set forth on our Prohibited Items list (see, Section 18);
  • During the period that you have listed items for sale on our Site, grant SpaceExcess an exclusive right to sell the items described in the Listing;
  • Promptly pay the SpaceExcess fees involved with the sale of your item(s).
  • For items imported or exported, agree that SpaceExcess is not a principal party in the transaction and acts as neither the importer nor exporter and thus is not responsible or liable for any export and import requirements.
  • Provide accurate export USML or ECCN classifications and import HTSUS classifications, or notify potential Buyers that such items have not been classified. (SpaceExcess has no responsibility to classify your products.)

Seller Warranties: Upon your posting of items for sale, you represent, warrant and agree that you are irrevocably offering to sell such items to any Buyer who satisfies the requirements of the auction or sales event and terms of payment. With respect to each sale of items, you represent, warrant and agree that:

  • You own the items being sold and have marketable legal title to such items, free and clear of any lien, security interest, leasehold interest, co-ownership interest, or any other type of encumbrance;
  • You have authority to list the items for sale, to sell the items, and to transfer title of the items to a Buyer;
  • You are complying at your sole responsibility with all laws and regulations applicable to the sale of your items;
  • You have no information that causes you to doubt the veracity of the Buyer or cause you to question the end use or end user;
  • You have screened the Buyer to ensure it/he/she is not a Restricted Party or Specially Designated National and that a sale to the Buyer does not violate any export control or Office of Foreign Assets Control current embargo or sanction requirement; and
  • You have arranged shipping methods and costs with the Buyer before the sale is concluded.

For Sellers in the European Union: The Site may only be used by commercial (non-consumer) parties, who have a valid VAT ID number that is verifiable through the European Union Commission's VIES database.

Listing Requirements: We reserve the right to accept or reject any or all Listings. Further, we reserve the right to review and/or remove any Listing. We are not responsible for any misrepresentations made by you, or any confusion caused by our removal of any Listings.

Shill Bidding Strictly Prohibited: To protect the integrity of our Site, SpaceExcess strictly prohibits shill bidding. Shill bidding is the act of bidding on your own items, either directly or indirectly, in an effort to artificially raise the price at which your items will eventually sell. This includes, but is not limited to, knowingly directing or allowing a third party to perform the artificial bidding against other legitimate bidders in the auction or sales event. Shill bidding is not only a violation of our policy, but shill bidding also violates the laws of some countries, including the U.S., and may subject anyone who engages in it to criminal prosecution.

Non-Circumvention: You agree not to negotiate, communicate, or transmit any information of any kind with any other User (whether or not the User has placed a bid) in an attempt to complete a sale of any item through any means other than our online marketplace (a “Circumventing Transaction”). In the event a Seller completes a Circumventing Transaction within 12 months following the expiration of a Seller’s auction, Seller understands and agrees that Seller is obligated to immediately remit a success fee to SpaceExcess equal to 15% of the final aggregate gross sale price of each item sold in the Circumventing Transaction. This non-circumvention clause will apply to Users and any principals, agents or representatives. This provision will not be construed as applying to any Users having pre-existing relationship developed independent of our site or our Services.

No Guarantees: You acknowledge that despite our efforts, Buyers may fail to perform. We do not provide any warranties, representations or guarantees that Buyers will pay the agreed price, or pay on a timely basis, or be able to take title to the item(s).

6. Buyer Rules

Requirements to be a Buyer: In order to participate as a Buyer in an auction or sales event, you must represent, warrant and agree to:

  • Pay for any bids or orders placed using your unique username and password;
  • Have paid or settled any previous financial obligations owed to SpaceExcess or any prior Sellers to our satisfaction;
  • Not manipulate the price of any item or interfere with other bidders or Buyers;
  • Not use any device, software or routine to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of or any transaction being conducted on and during the auction sale.
  • Comply with any listing-specific terms, conditions, or requirements;
  • Conduct your own research regarding the veracity of the Seller and your ability to import any items;
  • Screen the Seller to ensure it/he/she is not a Restricted Party or Specially Designated National;
  • Determine the shipping method and costs by mutual agreement with the Seller; and
  • Conduct your own due diligence of all items in Listings for which you bid.

Buyer Warranties: If you place a bid or order on the Site, you represent, warrant and agree that:

  • You are asserting your intention and financial capability to purchase the items by bidding or ordering;
  • You will not withdraw, amend, or modify your bid or order without our written approval;
  • You will comply with all laws and regulations applicable to the purchase of the items and their subsequent shipping, use, resale, transfer, and export; and
  • If representing a company or entity, you have the authority to bid and make purchases for that company or entity.

7. Online Auctions

Bidding Process: For Online Auctions on the Site, a Buyer that both meets the Listing requirements and enters the highest bid, will be deemed a "Winning Buyer”. If you are a Winning Buyer, then you are legally obligated to complete the transaction with the Seller unless the transaction is prohibited by this User Agreement or by law.

Each bidder is solely responsible for checking the Site or taking such other actions as are appropriate to learn of changes to a Listing, including changes to closing date or time. We will not be responsible for notifying any Buyer of a change in any Listing. The Buyer bears the sole risk of transmitting bids so that such bids are received prior to close of the Online Auction. We will not accept a bid that is received after an Online Auction has closed.

Posted closing times and displays of current time on our website are approximate. In addition, we reserve the right to close early or extend internet auctions at our discretion. Lots may be scheduled to close individually, in groups or entirely. Lot closing times will be advertised prior to the opening of the internet auction. At the scheduled closing time, the lots with active bidding may remain open for an additional time period until all bidding has ceased.

8. Sales Events

Fixed price sales managed by us are designated by having the option of “Buy Now”. In a private or direct sale, Buyers may become Winning Buyers by (a) agreeing to purchase the Listing at the stated purchase price and Listing terms (which price may be referred to as the “Buy Now” price or something similar), or (b) offering to purchase the Listing by making a binding offer for the Listing through the “Make Offer” option, which offer may be accepted and become binding on a Buyer.

9. Fees and Payments

SpaceExcess charges fees that vary depending on the type of item, as outlined on the SpaceExcess Fee Schedule. We may change the Fee Schedule or any temporary promotions with no advance notice.

Timing of Payment: If you are a Winning Buyer, you agree to make payment for the total amount of the transaction as specified in the Listing.

Currency: Unless specified for particular items, all transactions will be made in U.S. Dollars.

Forms of Payment: Unless otherwise specified in a Listing, the acceptable forms of payment include PayPal® or wire transfer. Certain Listings may specify additional restrictions or requirements.

Discounts & Promotions: We may offer alternative fee structures, rebates, discounts, coupons or incentives, at our sole discretion and for any reason, and we are under no obligation to offer such alternatives to all Users or to continue offering such alternatives to any User to whom we have made an offer in the past.

10. Intellectual Property Rights

Trademarks and Publicity: You have no rights to display or use SpaceExcess trade names, domain names, trademarks or service marks without our expressed written permission which we may withhold at our sole discretion. Any and all requests must be made in writing.

Promotional Materials: When you provide us with images, textual materials and other information concerning items (“Promotional Materials”), you grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sub-licensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise any and all copyright, publicity, trademarks, database rights and intellectual property rights you have in the Promotional Materials. Further, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, you waive your rights and promise not to assert such rights against SpaceExcess, its sub-licensees or assignees. You represent and warrant that none of the following infringe any intellectual property right of any third party: (1) your provision of Promotional Materials to us; (2) your posting of Promotional Materials using our Services; and (3) our use of such Promotional Materials in connection with our Services.

SpaceExcess Ownership of Intellectual Property Related to our Services and Site: You acknowledge and agree that our Services, our Site and any software and information used in connection with our Site contain proprietary and confidential information that is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws.

Data: You may not record, store, duplicate, reproduce, re-broadcast or otherwise exploit any data or audio/video content transmitted to you as part of our Services or your use of the Site (collectively, “Auction Data”). SpaceExcess owns all right, title and interest in and to all Auction Data. SpaceExcess grants no rights to you with respect to the Site or any of our proprietary databases, which SpaceExcess maintains as a proprietary trade secret. Notwithstanding the terms of this User Agreement, SpaceExcess may: (1) gather transaction data from customers, including you, in order to improve its marketplace and its services; and (2) compile, collect, copy, modify, publish, display, distribute and use aggregate transactional and performance data related, generated from or based on customer sales of items (including your sales and purchases), and may prepare summary or derivative information based thereon, for analytical and other business purposes, including, without limitation, incorporation into its proprietary databases; provided, however, in the case of either (1) or (2) that we will not identify you as the source of such information to any third party unless directed by a Court of competent jurisdiction.

Copyright & Intellectual Property Policy: SpaceExcess respects the intellectual property of others, and we expect our Users to do the same. If you believe that your copyrights or other intellectual property rights have been infringed by postings on the Site, please notify SpaceExcess. Upon the request of SpaceExcess, Sellers must provide valid proof of original purchase or a valid license from the trademark owner to sell branded items with a third party’s official brand name or logo. Absent valid proof of purchase or a valid license, Seller may be subject to a range of other actions, including limitations or termination of your rights on the Site. Further, SpaceExcess may cooperate with the trademark owner to pursue or participate in legal action.

11. Disclaimer of Warranties

Our Site and Services: We try to keep our Site and Services safe, secure, and functioning properly, but we cannot guarantee the continuous operation of or access to our Services or our Site.

YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY, DEFEND, AND HOLD US AND (EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT A SELLER HAS PROVIDED AN EXPRESS WARRANTY IN THE LISTING) THE SELLER HARMLESS FROM AND AGAINST ANY AND ALL SPECIFIED CLAIMS. UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED IN A LISTING, PHOTOGRAPHS, VIDEO, AND WRITTEN DESCRIPTIONS ARE NOT INTENDED AS REPRESENTATIONS, BUT ARE PROVIDED SOLELY TO AID YOU IN DETERMINING WHICH LISTINGS YOU WISH TO PHYSICALLY INSPECT.

13. Defense and Indemnity

You agree to fully indemnify and hold harmless SpaceExcess, its principals, partners, investors, directors, members, agents, employees, personnel, and consultants (together, "SpaceExcess Parties") from all claims whatsoever that may arise from your use of the Site or Services. You further agree to defend SpaceExcess Parties from all such claims, including reasonable attorney’s fees and defense costs, depositions, trials, awards, and expenses.

15. Disputes Among Users

SpaceExcess May Arbitrate Disputes Among Users: As a general rule, an accepted bid or order is final. SpaceExcess will not adjust winning bids or orders after an auction or sales event is closed unless it determines, at its sole discretion, that the integrity of an auction or sales event was materially impaired. Detailed procedures for submitting disputes and claims for each marketplace are on our Site, and all Users agree to submit themselves to these processes in the event of a dispute, and to abide by our decision as a consequence of these dispute processes.

While SpaceExcess may help facilitate the resolution of disputes between Buyers and Sellers using our Site, it has no control over and does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety, or legality of items advertised; the truth or accuracy of Users’ content or Listings; the ability of Sellers to sell items; the ability to import or export an item, the ability of Buyers to pay for items; or that a Buyer or Seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item or payment for an item.

SpaceAccess.com Discretion: When a User issue arises, SpaceExcess has complete discretion to enforce and apply its User Agreement.

Release of SpaceExcess: If a User has a dispute with another User, then SpaceExcess and its respective officers, directors, employees and agents are released from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual damages, damage to goodwill or reputation, lost profits, attorneys’ fees, intangible losses or any special, indirect, incidental or consequential damages) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes ("Release"). In entering into this Release, you expressly waive any protections (whether statutory or otherwise) 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. If you are a California resident, this means you are agreeing to waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”
