Legal Statement

By participating in CAPER's Live and Silent Auctions, each bidder agrees to the following rules:

All sales are final. No exchanges or refunds unless otherwise noted. All items are being offered "as is".  Carden Arbor View School (CAVS) has tried to describe and catalog the items by obtaining descriptions from the donors. CAVS neither warrants nor represents, and is in no way responsible for the correctness, genuineness, authenticity, or authorship of the description, or the value of any item. No statement made in this online auction, or made orally at the auction or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty, representation, or assumption of liability. 


Values for each item are determined by the donor or by an estimate at fair market value and are not warrantied by CAVS for tax or any other purpose.

CAVS is not responsible for any taxes found owing on any purchases. Please consult a tax professional. Please pay careful attention to all conditions, restrictions, and expiration dates on items and services. Unless otherwise noted, all auction items and services must be used within one year. No extensions on expirations will be granted. We appreciate your observance of these restrictions, as future donations depend on it. The winning bidder is responsible for contacting the donor to redeem items and/or services and for acknowledging exclusions, time limitations, and requirements stated on gift certificates or item listing.


Packages containing alcohol will not be shipped and must be picked up by an individual 21+ years of age with a valid ID.  You must be at least 21 years old to purchase any packages containing alcohol and/or tours of alcoholic establishments.


Each winning bidder agrees that all payments for any items shall be considered to be an unrestricted charitable contribution to the school. CAVS will not be obligated under any circumstances to refund any payments for any reason.

CAVS reserves the right to add or withdraw items, without notice, to or from the auction.
By purchasing, the winning bidder, on his or her behalf and on behalf of his or her heirs, estate, or assignees, (i) waives any claim for liability against CAVS and its employees and agents and (ii) agrees that the CAVS and its agents, elected and appointed Board of Trustees or administrators, members, and employees, the auctioneers, the auction company and its agents and employees, the event organizers, sponsors and/or volunteers connected with the auction are not responsible for any personal injury or damage to property that may result from the utilization of the property or services sold.
