By definition, this includes, but is not limited to, two or more members working together as a team, or creating the impression that there are more people involved and competing to win an auction than there actually are, or placing bids until rewards are earned and then switching over to another account to continue to earn further rewards on the same deal.
Global Credits Network does not allow two members that know, or are associated with, each other to participate in the same auction. Two members participating in the auction are by definition engaging in team play, and automatically lose their right to purchase the Deal or receive any of their spent bids back.
We reserve the right to disqualify, in our absolute discretion, any users we suspect to be working in a team by voiding all their wins and freezing their accounts. No funds or Bids will be returned or transferred into other accounts.

Global Credits Network has the right to remove or refuse to post on the Service any Licensed Materials for any or no reason in its sole discretion. However, Global Credits Network cannot review all Licensed Materials before it is posted on its Services and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted.

Global Credits Network has no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or non-performance of the activities described in this Section.
To use the Services, you must first register for an online user account, consisting of a username, password, digital wallet, credit card information (if requested), billing address, and other information as may be required by Global Credits Network. You may register only once and may only have one account at Global Credits Network for your personal use. Additionally, each household or "group of users associated with each other", determined by the sole discretion of Global Credits Network, may not register or have control over more than two Global Credits Network member accounts. If a single person is found to have or maintain control over several accounts on Global Credits Network, or if a household or a "group of users associated with each other" is found to have or maintain control over more than two accounts on Global Credits Network, all accounts will be immediately suspended, all auctions the accounts have participated in will be voided, and any Bids purchased will be removed without prior warning and without any form of compensation.
During the registration process, the user must choose a username. The username may not offend common decency or infringe upon the rights of third parties. The username may also not be misleading in any way or, in Global Credits Network's judgment, closely resemble the identity of an existing user. It is a condition of your use of the Services that all the information you provide through the Services is correct, current, and complete. You agree to maintain and promptly update your user account information to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or Global Credits Network has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, Global Credits Network may suspend or terminate your account or access to the Services. If you abuse your user account, whether it harms a third party or Global Credits Network, you may be disqualified and, if applicable, Global Credits Network may notify applicable authorities of the possibility of a crime.
ACCOUNTS AUTHORIZED TO USE THE SERVICES CANNOT BE TRANSFERRED OR USED BY ANYONE OTHER THAN THE AUTHORIZED ACCOUNT HOLDER. USE OF THIS ACCOUNT BY A PERSON OR PERSONS NOT AUTHORIZED BY GLOBAL CREDITS NETWORK IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED. NO MORE THAN ONE LOG-IN SESSION OR ONE AUTHORIZED ACCOUNT USER CAN BE ACTIVE AT A TIME FOR ANY ACCOUNT. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PERMITTED BY THE SYSTEM, ACCOUNTS WHICH HAVE BEEN TRANSFERRED IN WHOLE, PART, OR PROXY BIDDING TO OTHER PARTIES, OR SHOW OTHER ACTIVITY IN VIOLATION OF THESE TERMS, ARE SUBJECT TO IMMEDIATE TERMINATION. GLOBAL CREDITS NETWORK RESERVES THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN LOGS OF ACCOUNT ACTIVITY AND TO USE SAID LOGS FOR THE PURPOSE OF DETECTING USAGE IN VIOLATION OF THESE TERMS.
Global Credits Network reserves the right to at any time temporarily or permanently disqualify a user for violating these Terms. Users will be disqualified when, in Global Credits Network's reasonable opinion, a user has violated any law, regulation or equitable interest in favor of a third party, such as protecting users and the Service from manipulation. Examples of the foregoing include, but are not limited to, (i) honoring bids of users who have not paid for the Bids, (ii) the use of unauthorized bidding software, or (iii) establishing several user accounts for the same person. Moreover, Global Credits Network reserves the right to cancel unauthorized Global Credits Network accounts or accounts that have been inactive. Each user agrees not to hold Global Credits Network responsible for any loss incurred as a result of such action.
All prices are displayed, and payments processed in United States dollars. The user is responsible for conversion rates and fees which may occur in case of a currency conversion done by their bank or payment processor.
Global Credits Network Bids must be purchased by users prior to online bidding. Only registered users can submit the online bids, which can be purchased in packages (“Bid Packs”) at the currently applicable prices. The Bids must be paid for in advance. When the Bids are purchased and deposited into the user's Global Credits Network account, a contract for the purchase of the Bids materializes. If a user is suspended for whatever reason, all of their Bids will be forfeited and will not be refunded.
Users who have won an auction and paid for a product are not eligible for a refund on either Bid purchases, account activation fees, or product fees if their product has been shipped by the time of request.
Should a payment not be honored for a user, a returned payment fee will be charged. The user shall be solely responsible for these fees. Global Credits Network reserves the right to block access to the user account until full payment is received by Global Credits Network for the outstanding amount, including any fees due to returned payment, etc. Global Credits Network may withhold any outstanding deliveries until it receives full payment. The user's exchange may or may not charge the user an international payment fee in connection with cryptocurrency payments on the Global Credits Network site. It is the sole responsibility of the user to be familiar with the policies and practices of his or her exchange for such fees. Global Credits Network holds no responsibility for additional payment fees of any kind issued to the user by the user's exchange.
Example (normal priced Bids): John purchases 100 Bids for $60 and Bids 10 times. All the remaining 90 Bids are eligible for a total refund of $54 ( 90 * $0.60 ).
For online bidding, an individual bid can be submitted by clicking the "BID NOW" button, or by using the automated bidding tool called the '[NAME]'. Used Bids are deducted from the user's Bid balance accordingly.
The [NAME] can assist bidders in being able to bid in an auction, even if the bidders are not online at that time. Only registered users can submit bids automatically with one or more [NAME]. The [NAME] automatically submits bids according to the specifications set in advance by the user.
Booking a [NAME] before an auction starts does not guarantee participation in the auction. In such cases all bids booked into the [NAME] are returned to the user’s account. To secure a spot in an auction, Global Credits Network advises to book the [NAME] or place one manual bid after the auction has started.
Global Credits Network does not guarantee the precision of the [NAME] feature and Global Credits Network may not be held responsible for any [NAME] software errors of commission or omission. The user is prohibited from using any bidding software not authorized by Global Credits Network; if the user does, in fact, use unauthorized software, it may result in immediate disqualification from Global Credits Network's systems and Service. Global Credits Network will from time to time award all users who start using the Site with free Bids. The number of free Bids awarded or not awarded is determined solely by Global Credits Network on an account by account basis.
A bid is registered and counted only when Global Credits Network's system registers the bid. A bid is not counted and valid when it is sent from the user's Web browser, but when Global Credits Network's servers receive and register the bid request.
It usually takes less than a second for a bid to be registered, however it may take up to several seconds or longer for Global Credits Network to receive the bid if there is a delay in the network or if the system is under high stress. Global Credits Network is not responsible for any delays that occur in bidding or in the auctions. Global Credits Network strives to make the Global Credits Network timer clocks as accurate as possible. While Global Credits Network believes that auction timers are very accurate, Global Credits Network cannot and does not guarantee that the system, including the bidding clock, will always function reliably.
To comply with fair and honest auction practices, Global Credits Network will reschedule auctions that end prematurely due to severe third party or technical problems to a later time. In such events, where all bidders aren't able to participate normally in the auctions, Global Credits Network will return all used Bids from such rescheduled auctions to all involved bidders.
As described in the House Rules, which are incorporated by reference, each user may win the same item, in the same auction type, only once in a limited time period, as specified in the details for each auction. The winning limit resets automatically once the period has passed from the end onf the auction. The system will prevent users from placing bids on an auction if they have already won the same product during the period. All the booked [NAME] will automatically be canceled for the other auctions of the same product, when the user wins an auction.
Furthermore, each user may win up to 50 auctions per week. Once a user has reached the 50 wins limit, the system will prevent them from placing bids on any auctions, and all booked [NAME] will automatically be canceled. The weekly winning limit resets at 00:00 PST on the day of the week you created your account.
Global Credits Network reserves the right to, from time to time review the guidelines for any winning limits and may at any time under its sole discretion limit accounts from winning an excessive amount of auctions. Global Credits Network attempts to limit some auctions to users of comparable skill, as determined by Global Credits Network, to enhance user experience and equal chances of winning auctions. In so doing, Global Credits Network may limit which auctions are available to particular users based on any factors deemed appropriate by Global Credits Network in its sole discretion, including experience of the user, historical success of the user, demographic factors, prior bidding and spending activity, and other factors. In particular, Global Credits Network may limit certain auctions to less experienced or successful users in any manner Global Credits Network deems appropriate to optimize the overall user experience of all Global Credits Network users. You acknowledge that You may be, and you consent to being, excluded from auctions at Global Credits Network's discretion. This limit is put in place to ensure that all users have a high quality of user experience.
With each bid submitted, the price of the item on which the user is bidding increases by $0.01. A bid submitted by the user constitutes an offer from that user to Global Credits Network to conclude a contract to purchase the item. A contract to purchase the item does not materialize until the auction is finished and the last bidder has followed all the steps provided for in this Section. The purchase contract will exist between Global Credits Network and the user who has submitted the highest bid up until the point when the last bidder has submitted the last qualifying bid of the respective auction.
Each new bid resets the 'countdown time' for the auction. The countdown time for each of the auctions is shown on the auction details. The auction ends when no more bids are submitted within the remaining time stated. However, an auction may not end if anyone else except the highest bidder still has Bids booked on their [NAME]. In the event of heavy network lag, the [NAME] may place the bid with a slight delay with the system registering the bid 1+ seconds after the auction's countdown time. Such bid will be completely valid, provided that the bidder had booked his [NAME] within the auction's countdown time.
The user who submits the highest bid and is the last to bid wins the auction. All other Bids on the item expire and will not be refunded. The last bidder is determined based on the records in Global Credits Network's database and Global Credits Network's decision regarding the identity of the last bidder shall be final. If a bid is placed too late, does not reset the timer of an auction or is not correctly registered by the system, it is then invalid. Even though this bid may be the last bid on an auction, it is the last and highest valid bid on an auction that wins the auction.
An invalid bid is one where the auction timer is not reset after the bid has been placed. Global Credits Network recommends its users to always bid at least 5 seconds prior to the auction timer reaches zero, as otherwise the bid might be reflected as accepted by the system, but in reality be received too late.
Global Credits Network is not responsible for third party abuse and manipulation of the Global Credits Network service, for example, if other users create unfavorable environments on the Site that then results in lost bids. In that case, and other cases of third-party abuse, Global Credits Network shall assume no responsibility, and you expressly release Global Credits Network and its parent company Global Credits Network, LLC of any liability and further agree to indemnify Global Credits Network and Global Credits Network, LLC.
Global Credits Network is constantly attempting to maintain fairness and balance in its auctions therefore some new users or users who have lost auctions may receive special promotions, access to special auctions, and/or free Bids through site features. This is designed to maintain fair practice and helps balance and create a great auction experience for all users.
paid the total amount reflected on the 'payment page', the win is accepted. The winner will also receive a notification of the win by e-mail with a request for payment.
Orders may be subject to sales tax (when applicable and required by law). For [Instant Buy] orders the tax is based on the [Instant Buy] price and for auction wins the tax is based on the final auction price.
The user may obtain and be legally entitled to the product only after the user fully pays for the product and all of the applicable Bids used to obtain the product. Should the user not pay for Bids that have already been purchased, payments received shall be viewed as payment toward the Bids not yet paid for, and a right of retention shall be exercised with regard to the item purchased at auction until all Bids and the total price have been paid in full.
Global Credits Network may offer the option to exchange the auction win to bids. If the user accepts the exchange to bids offer the bids are added to the user's account, and the user loses the option to pay the auction price (plus applicable taxes) to obtain the item. The offer may change over time and vary between users and auctions.
If the user does not receive the product won or product obtained through "[Instant Buy]", the user must file in a claim of non-receipt via e-mail to [email protected].com within thirty (30) calendar days of the purchase, or Global Credits Network's obligation to deliver the product will end. No refunds of the purchase amount or cost of spent Bids to win the item will be returned to the user.
Global Credits Network is not responsible for stolen or lost items. In the event that a product is stolen or lost, Global Credits Network will do its best to help customers upon request, by providing tracking information received from the supplier, as well as screenshots or copies of the sales receipt and possible shipping confirmation, if available.
Unless otherwise agreed, delivery will be made from Global Credits Network's supplier's warehouse or from Global Credits Network's warehouse to the address provided by the user. Deliveries are made solely within the continental United States. Global Credits Network may engage third parties to satisfy its contractual obligations without being required to notify the buyer. Obvious damage to the item from transport or packaging damaged during transport is to be reported to the delivery company upon taking delivery.
Should Global Credits Network not be able to deliver the item ordered for whichever reason, Global Credits Network is entitled to declare rescission to the user or to substitute the item with a comparable replacement product with similar features. Global Credits Network may also choose to replace the item ordered with a gift card of the value of the item that the user may choose to use to obtain the same product. This also applies for items ordered through [Instant Buy]from the Global Credits Network store.
If the product delivered is damaged, defective, or otherwise does not match the product description, Global Credits Network will replace the product at Global Credits Network's expense. Please contact [email protected] to arrange return and replacement of any such product. Replacement is not covered for any items shipped to a freight forwarding company and shipment to a freight forwarding company is not permitted under these Terms.
Subject to the cancellation policy specified herein, Global Credits Network may substitute another similar item of the same general character or function, provided it has the same or higher retail value, for purposes of delivery to the user. Global Credits Network may substitute another similar item of a lesser value if the user requests one, or furnish the user with a gift card. A gift card may be the most suitable substitute solution for challenges related to product availability or supplier challenges. Such right of substitution may be necessary from time to time if, for example, unforeseen or undetected challenges arise with the manufacturing or inventory system of the supplier, impacting the ability to deliver the exact item sought by the user.
If Global Credits Network is unable to provide the user with the item auctioned due to unforeseen circumstances, Global Credits Network in its absolute discretion, reserves the right to offer the winner an alternative item in the same price range or the equivalent of the item's Manufacturer's Recommended Retail Price ('MSRP') in Bids.
Should subsequent correction be undertaken by way of delivery of the item originally auctioned, the user shall be obligated to return to Global Credits Network the substituted item delivered within 30 days at Global Credits Network's expense.
Items delivered shall remain Global Credits Network's property until payment in full of the total price, including for the Bids used in the auction. Until such time as full payment has been made, the user undertakes to store the item separately from their other possessions and to insure it. Global Credits Network shall have full rights of access to the place where the item is located during normal business hours to take possession of it.
You acknowledge that items sold on Global Credits Network may come from suppliers where one or more ultimate Global Credits Network shareholders owns an interest, or there are directors or advisors shared between Global Credits Network and the supplier.
