"The Luminary" is defined as the celebrity or luminary whose property, or an experience with whom, is being sold by Us on the Sites. In the case of property or experiences involving alcoholic beverages, the Luminary is the alcoholic beverage licensee who is providing alcoholic beverages. The charitable non-profit organization ("the Charity") is defined as the charitable recipient of a portion of the proceeds from property, lots, or digital connection sold on the Sites.
All references to "property" and/ or "lot" in these Terms shall also include all items and experiences offered and sold on the Sites, including in-person experiences as well as virtual experiences (also called "digital connections").
A. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Accepting the Terms
These Terms govern the terms on which all property, lots, and digital connections are sold on the Sites and creates a legal contract between each Buyer desiring to purchase any property offered on the Sites and Traina Interactive. When any affiliate of Traina Interactive offers property for sale on the Sites, it will abide by the terms and conditions of these Terms.
These Terms provide the general terms applicable to all sales and interactions on the Sites administered by Traina Interactive, but each offering may have additional terms which supplement these Terms (“Supplemental Terms”). In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between these Terms and the Supplemental Terms, the Supplemental Terms shall govern with respect to the conflict or inconsistency therein. You agree to comply with these Terms and any Supplemental Terms for an individual offering posted on the Sites.
Traina Interactive may change the terms and conditions set forth in these Terms in the future. Any changes to the Terms and to other policies, procedures or guidelines referenced herein will be effective immediately upon posting on the Sites unless a specific effective date is indicated. You are responsible for reviewing notices and any applicable changes. Changes to referenced policies and guidelines may be posted without notice to you.

Traina Interactive Services
The Sites provide a venue for Traina Interactive to offer property and digital connections provided by Luminaries to willing Buyers at a fixed-price and for Buyers to purchase such property and digital connections. Traina Interactive is responsible for the operation of the Sites. Traina Interactive has no involvement in any transaction entered into, on or through the Sites, except to facilitate the transaction between Buyer and Seller. Traina Interactive will process collection of the purchase price and remittance of the sale proceeds to the appropriate parties, namely the appointed Charity and the Seller. Traina Interactive acts as an intermediary between Buyer and Seller. Other than collecting payments on behalf of the Seller and the Charity, Traina Interactive is not a party to any transaction between the Buyer, the Seller and the Charity.
The successful Buyer may be required to pay sales or use tax, value-added tax (“VAT”), excise tax, gross receipts tax, goods and services tax or other applicable transactional tax, as determined by law (collectively, “Taxes”). The Buyer may also be subject to a compensating use tax or other tax in his or her domicile. Traina Interactive is not obligated to determine whether Taxes apply and is not responsible for collecting, remitting or reporting any Taxes arising from any transaction unless required by law, and both Buyer and Luminary agree to indemnify and/or hold Traina Interactive harmless therefrom.
Traina Interactive is not responsible for estimates, descriptions, condition, authenticity, title or any other matters relating to the offer and sale of such property. Merchandise information is collected from the Luminary and is accurate to the best ability of the Luminary.
Each of the Charities listed on the Sites has granted permission to Traina Interactive to list them by name and logo as the beneficiaries of certain sales of property or lots on the Sites. The exact percentage of proceeds directed to each Charity varies per property or lot, but in no event is less than 10% of the individual sale price. Traina Interactive does not place a “cap” on the total amount of contributions provided to any one Charity; nor does it guarantee to provide a minimum dollar amount of contributions to any one Charity. Because the final sale price paid by Buyer represents the full value of the product or service, no portion of the sale price is tax-deductible to the Buyer as a charitable contribution. The full name, address, and other information on each Charity is available at the bottom of each Luminary page.
Buyer understands that in the event a purchased experience involves meeting a celebrity, or otherwise involves being in close proximity to a celebrity, then Buyer agrees to submit to a background check conducted by or on behalf of Traina Interactive and the Seller, and further agrees to sign and execute all required authorizations for said background check to be conducted as required by applicable law. If Buyer does not agree to a background check or fails to supply the necessary information for a background check, the Buyer, the Seller or Traina Interactive have the right to rescind the transaction for the experience. As a condition for any guest (or other person) that Buyer will bring to an experience involving meeting a celebrity, or otherwise involving being in close proximity to a celebrity, such guest shall agree to submit to a background check, and further agrees to sign and execute all required authorizations for said background check to be conducted as required by applicable law. If any such guest does not agree to a background check or fails to supply the necessary information for a background check, the Seller or Traina Interactive have the right to exclude such guest from the experience.
Any experience involving meeting a celebrity, or otherwise being in close proximity to a celebrity, is a conditional sale unless and until the applicable Seller accepts the results of the background check(s). Traina Interactive has the right to share the results of each background check with the applicable Seller.
If the property or lot is being sold through an auction, and the property or lot is unique, the following terms will apply in addition to these Terms:
As a general rule, You cannot retract or cancel a bid once placed. Once You place a bid, You agree to pay for the lot if you are the winning bidder. Exception: a bidder can cancel their bid within one (1) hour of placing their bid (but in no event after an auction has closed) solely in the case of an input error.
At Traina Interactive or Sellers’ sole discretion, the auction may be comprised of two parts: the initial round of bids in which the auction is open to all users (“General Round”) and the final round of bids in which bids may be made only by the top five bidders in the General Round (“Final Round”)
Bids can be increased at any time before the General Round closes, the Final Round closes or the auction closes, as applicable.
Immediately following Your bid, Traina Interactive will authorize Your credit card for 10% of the bid amount. (“Credit Card Authorization”).
At the end of the General Round, the top five bidders (“Final Bidders”) whose bids have received credit card authorization will have the opportunity to participate in the Final Round. The Final Bidders will be contacted via email simultaneously and have 24 hours from point of contact to rebid. Should there be multiple equal bids that are higher than all other bids ("Tied Winning Bids"), the winning bid shall be the Tied Winning Bid that was placed first.
After the auction is complete, the winning Buyer can switch payment methods to check or wire transfer by immediately providing written notice to Traina Interactive.
Payment in full must be received within seven (7) calendar days after the auction has closed. Failure to pay the full amount of Your bid within such seven (7) calendar day period will result in loss of the auction lot (the lot will be offered to the next highest bidder) and Your deposit will be forfeited.
If a lot or property being offered is not unique and multiple offerings are made through a single auction, Traina Interactive has the option to apply the following terms:
As a general rule, You cannot retract or cancel a bid once placed. Once You place a bid, You agree to pay for the property or lot if You are a winning bidder even if you are the winner on more than one property or lot simultaneously being offered. Exception: a bidder can cancel their bid within one (1) hour of placing their bid (but in no event after an auction has closed) solely in the case of an input error.
The auction is comprised of two parts, the General Round and a subsequent round in which only the top bidders from the General Round may participate (“Secondary Round”). The number of bidders that may participate in the Secondary Round will be equal to twice the number of properties being auctioned (“Secondary Bidders”).
Bids can be increased at any time before the General Round, Secondary Round or the auction closes, as applicable.
Immediately following Your bid, Traina Interactive will authorize Your credit card for 10% of the bid amount. (“credit card authorization”).
At the end of the General Round, the Secondary Bidders will be contacted via email simultaneously and have 24 hours from point of contact to rebid.
Upon the conclusion of the Secondary Round, property will be awarded to the highest bidder, then the second highest bidder, and so forth, until all property is awarded for each separate property or lot being offered (“Winning Bidders”).
The Winning Bidders will all pay the same amount (“Clearing Bid”). The Clearing Bid will be the lowest bid among the Winning Bidders. Should there be multiple equal bids that are higher than all other bids ("Tied Winning Bids"), the winning bid shall be the Tied Winning Bid that was placed first.
After the auction is complete, the Winning Bidders can switch payment methods to check or wire transfer by immediately providing written notice to Traina Interactive.
Payment in full must be received within seven (7) calendar days after the auction has closed. Failure to pay the full amount of Your bid within such seven (7) calendar day period will result in loss of the auction lot (the lot will be offered to the next highest bidders), and Your deposit will be forfeited.
In no case will Traina Interactive share the identity of any of the bidders with any other bidders in any auction.
