PROVIDER CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP
As a client of CDX, you retain the right to terminate your account and all access to CDX services at any time in accordance with the terms and conditions of use of this service. Insomuch as you, the customer has the right to terminate your account without any notice and without any reason, CDX also retains the right to terminate any account or remove any client, customer or any user from the CDX platform for any reason and without any obligation to notify of said termination. As a customer of CDX, you, therefore, agree that termination of your account can happen without prior notice notwithstanding any obligation CDX has to discharge its services in accordance with the terms and conditions outlined herein.
For example, if a Customer receives any take down requests or infringement notices related to Customer Data or its use of Third-Party Products, services or intellectual property by any other business or person of any sort and this is relayed to CDX in any form this can be a cause of account termination.
If CDX receives any takedown requests or infringement notices related to Customer Data or Customer’s use of Third-Party Products, CDX may respond in accordance with its policies.
If also, any client, customer or user of the CDX platform becomes and is deemed by us to have changed to being a competitor of the CDX platform and its services, this is also a basis but not limited to, termination of your account.
Any losses which may be incurred by you the customer as a result of account termination for any reason are solely responsible for these losses and CDX do not take any responsibility for such losses and are not liable in any way.
OBLIGATION TO PARTICIPATE
As CDX.ie is a popular salvage vehicle disposal system platform and a limited number of panel members are chosen to have access to the system, it is the policy of CDX.ie that all users regularly participate in the vehicle disposal system, therefore, all panel members are obligated to participate and non-participating members will be removed from the system to make room for other members to participate.
Using the website as a benchmarking tool is not permitted as all panel members must be active participants. Any panel member who remains inactive on the platform will be removed.
This is an As-Is Site. You accept that you use the Site at your own risk and without any guarantees or promises from CDX.ie or its sellers. CDX.ie is a confidential panel vehicle disposal system. The panel member submits their own sealed price offers and these offers are not shown to the competing panel members. If two separate panel members offer the same price for a vehicle into the system, the first panel member that entered the figure will have the first choice on the purchase of the vehicle.
Any panel member can be removed at any time without prior consultation or explanation from CDX.ie. All decisions are final.
ALL WINNING PANEL OFFERS MUST BE HONOURED IN FULL AND ON TIME
Entering a confirmed salvage offer at CDX.ie forms a valid legal contract and cannot be cancelled. CDX.ie is committed to honouring our obligations to all users and panel members and in turn, all panel members are expected to honour their commitments to CDX.ie.
When you input an amount into the system, it can be amended up until the vehicle deadline. However, after a deadline, an offer cannot be withdrawn after it has been input into the system. All panel members who submit their own sealed price offers and are accepted as having made the highest offer, must honour their offer commitment to dispose of the vehicle.
Panel members cannot cancel their sealed price offer once it has been entered into the system and the vehicle deadline has concluded. It is possible to amend an offer higher or lower before the disposal process has been completed but this is monitored and misuse of the panel offer process will not be tolerated.
If an offer is mistakenly entered at a higher-than-intended value, then it may be possible to amend the maximum value downwards. Once a sealed price offer is made, and subsequently becomes the highest offer when the vehicle deadline has concluded, the user is committed to taking possession of the vehicle within 30 days from the end of the offering process.
After the conclusion of the sale, all offers must be honoured in full and on time. Failure to do so will result in your access to the CDX platform being revoked and immediate termination.
All decisions on account termination are final and CDX.ie will not enter into any negotiations for reinstatement to the system with panel members who have breached the rules on reneging on offers.
