GAVL, an online platform which allows you to view and bid on, in real-time, real estate auctions, is operated by GAVL AUST Pty Ltd (ACN 611 741 854) (GAVL, we, us, our). The following terms and conditions (Terms) govern your use of the GAVL online platform, the website www.gavl.com and any of our mobile device applications or other remote services providing access to the GAVL online platform (together, GAVL Platform).

Please read the Terms carefully as they apply to your use of the GAVL Platform. By registering and using the GAVL Platform, you agree to be bound by the Terms. We may amend the Terms at any time.

We recommend that you enable your device to receive push notifications from us and we are not responsible if you fail to do so.

  2. If any guarantee, warranty, term or condition is implied or imposed in relation to the Terms under the Australian Consumer Law or any other applicable legislation (a Non-excludable Condition), then our liability for breach of the Non-excludable Condition is limited, at our option, to the resupply of the services or the cost of having the services supplied again.

  2. The Terms will be governed by and are to be construed in accordance with the laws in force in the State of Victoria, Australia. You irrevocably and unconditionally submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of that state.

Apple App Store provisions

  1. This section applies where the GAVL Platform has been acquired from the Apple App Store. You acknowledge and agree that the agreement for use of the GAVL Platform is solely between you and GAVL, not Apple, Inc. (Apple) and that Apple has no responsibility for the GAVL Platform or content thereof. Your use of the GAVL Platform must comply with the App Store Terms of Service.
  2. You acknowledge that Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the GAVL Platform. In the event of any failure of the GAVL Platform to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple, and (where applicable) Apple will refund the purchase price for the GAVL Platform to you. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the GAVL Platform, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be solely governed by the Terms and any law applicable to GAVL as provider of the GAVL Platform.

  8. You and GAVL acknowledge and agree that Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries, are third-party beneficiaries of the Terms as relates to your licence of the GAVL Platform, and that, upon your acceptance of the Terms, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce the Terms as relates to your licence of the GAVL Platform against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.

Submitting bids using the GAVL Platform

  1. The remainder of the Terms apply if you wish to register to remotely bid on a property using the GAVL Platform.

Identity verification and approval process

  1. If you wish to register to remotely bid on a property within Australia using the GAVL Platform, you must complete our identity verification process and, then, be approved to do so by the real estate agency responsible for that auction.
  2. If it is the first time that you have applied to bid on a property within Australia using the GAVL Platform, you will be required to provide personal information about yourself (including financial information) so that your identity can be verified. We will use a third party, Vix Verify Pty Ltd or Vix Verify, to verify your identity.
  3. If your identity is verified, your information (including personal information) will be provided to the real estate agency responsible for the auction for approval. In each case, it is the relevant real estate agency, and not GAVL, who is responsible for approving you to bid remotely on a particular auction.  Each real estate agency is an independent third party who will grant this approval in its absolute discretion, and we are not responsible for the acts or omissions of any real estate agent or agency, including a decision to allow you to bid on a property.
  4. If you are approved by the real estate agency, you may also be required to complete the agency’s registration process prior to the start of the auction.
  5. If your identity cannot be verified or you are not approved by a real estate agency to bid on a particular auction, we will notify you using a push notification.
  6. You will also receive a push notification if a real estate agency does not respond to a request to approve you. If this happens, we recommend that you contact the real estate agency outside of the GAVL Platform.
  7. If you wish to place a bid on a property located outside of Australia, you must complete the identity verification process and any another applicable approvals process in the relevant country.
  8. You warrant that any information you provide to us as part of the identity verification process will be accurate and complete.
  9. You will not register to bid on a property if you are under 18, are not able to form a legally binding contract or do not hold the required Australian identity documentation.
  10. Any information you provide to us in connection with the identity verification process will be kept confidential and will only be disclosed to the extent required in order to complete the identity verification process (including as set out in clause 38 below) or where we are otherwise required or authorised by law, the order of any court, tribunal, authority or regulatory body, stock exchange rules or professional standards to do so. However, you acknowledge that the internet is not 100% secure and we cannot guarantee the security of any confidential information which you transmit to us online.
  11. Any personal information which you provide as part of the identity verification process will be disclosed to Vix Verify and may be transferred outside of Australia. Please see Vix Verify’s privacy policy, located at https://www.vixverify.com/news-resources-2/privacy_policy/.   Your personal information will also be disclosed to real estate agents each time you wish to bid on a property, as described above.

Conduct of auction

  1. If you are approved by the relevant real estate agency to remotely bid on a property you will be able to access, via the GAVL Platform, the contract for sale for the property and any other material or information which is required to be provided by law regarding the sale of the property or the conduct of the auction prior to the auction. You will not be entitled to negotiate the terms of or make any changes to the contract for sale through the GAVL Platform if you are the successful bidder.  You are advised to seek independent legal advice regarding the contract for sale prior to the start of the auction.
  2. During an auction, you may use the GAVL Platform to communicate bids to the onsite auction team. You acknowledge that the GAVL Platform provides a means of communication via which your bids will be shared with the auctioneer.  It is the auctioneer’s decision as to whether your bid is accepted or not, not ours.
  3. The GAVL Platform does not constitute an agency service for real estate buyers and you are responsible for determining whether or not to submit a bid, and the value of each bid you submit.
  4. You warrant that:
  5. you will comply with all applicable laws regarding the conduct of the auction and any bids you submit; and
  6. without limiting the above, you will only submit a bid on a property if you intend to buy that property at that price.
  7. Each auction ends when the auctioneer brings the auction to a close. If you are not successful during an auction, you acknowledge that:
  8. no binding contract exists between you and any other person in respect of the property; and
  9. once the auction ends you will have no further access to or information regarding that auction via the GAVL Platform and will have no further opportunity to bid on the property via the GAVL Platform.

Execution of contract and completion of purchase

  1. If you are successful at an auction, you will receive a link to a third party platform via which you must immediately execute the contract for sale electronically. You acknowledge that your offer is not accepted until the seller of the property executes the contract for sale.
  2. Once the contract for sale is executed by both parties, you acknowledge that a binding contract exists for the purchase of the property.  You must complete the purchase of the property unless you are entitled by law to withdraw from the purchase.
  3. You acknowledge and agree that the contract for sale is between you and the seller of the property, and that GAVL is not a party to the transaction. We are not responsible or liable for any loss or damage you may suffer or incur in connection with any transaction you complete using the GAVL Platform or for any acts, omissions, errors or defaults of any seller or other third party in connection with that transaction.

Payment of deposit

  1. Once you have executed the contract for sale, you will be prompted to pay a deposit for the property to the seller or the seller’s agent using the GAVL Platform, in the amount stipulated in the contract for sale. The GAVL Platform facilitates the payment of deposits by remitting the payment to the seller or the seller’s agent on your instructions.
  2. Deposit payments may be processed by a third party payment provider, POLi Payments Pty Ltd (POLI Payments) on our behalf. If so, POLi Payments terms and conditions, available at https://www.polipayments.com/Terms, will apply to that transaction.  We are not responsible for the acts or omissions of POLi Payments and we cannot guarantee that the services provided by POLi Payments will be uninterrupted or error-free.
