Welcome to TRAAuctions.com, a service of Manheim Auctions, Inc. ("Manheim," "we"
or "us"). By using this service, you agree to abide by the terms of this Visitor
at http://www.TRAAuctions.com/privacy.aspx. These are legally binding agreements
between you and Manheim; please read both agreements carefully.
1. General Provisions
TRAAuctions.com is an online automotive auction site and service that brings automobile
dealers, manufacturers, banks, leasing companies, and other automotive industry
professionals together. TRAAuctions.com includes such features as Manheim Market
Report, Lanes Online, myAccount, and other automotive software and information.
We invite you to bring to our attention any material on our site that you believe
to be inaccurate. Please forward a copy of the material to which you object, along
with an explanation of your objection, to our Customer Support Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you are an owner of intellectual property who believes your intellectual property
has been improperly posted or distributed via this website, please notify us by
sending an email to email@example.com,
or by sending a notice by U.S. Mail to: Customer Support Manager, TRAAuctions.com,
6205 Peachtree Dunwoody Road, Atlanta, GA 30328.
The Web is an evolving medium. Manheim may change the terms of this agreement from
time to time. By continuing to use this website following such changes, you agree
to be bound by this agreement, as modified. Manheim may change, restrict access
to, suspend, or discontinue this service, or any portion of this service, at any
Unless otherwise indicated, you will be completely responsible for all charges,
fees, taxes and assessments arising out of the purchase or sale of goods or services
in which you participate through TRAAuctions.com. TRAAuctions.com is not responsible
for, and does not guarantee the performance of, any goods or services that are listed
or sold through TRAAuctions.com.
2. Member Features
Manheim requires dealers to register if they wish to use many of the online features
or to access much of the information available on the TRAAuctions.com site. For
example, registered members can use TRAAuctions.com's features to view upcoming
schedules of Manheim's auctions, get detailed information about auction inventories,
and participate in auctions using TRAAuctions.com's Simulcast Auction features.
Particular features on the Service may have their own purchase policies and/or terms
of service; by using these features, you agree to be bound by their terms.
We hope that the information we provide on the TRAAuctions.com site will be helpful
to you; however, despite our efforts to provide useful and accurate information,
errors may appear from time to time. Before relying on any information that may
be available on TRAAuctions.com or through any feature of TRAAuctions.com, including
any vehicle or auction account information (such as information about credit lines,
monies owed or monies due, etc.), you should confirm that the information is correct.
Manheim is not responsible for and does not guarantee the accuracy or reliability
of any information available on TRAAuctions.com or through any feature of TRAAuctions.com.
Our Simulcast Auction feature allows dealers to participate, on a virtual basis,
in live vehicle auctions held at select Manheim locations. This feature lets you
receive a live audio and video feed and to bid on vehicles at auctions you cannot
physically attend. While we make every effort to ensure that these feeds will be
available to you throughout the auction, we cannot guarantee the uninterrupted performance
of any audio or video feed we provide. In order for you to participate in simulcast
auctions using the Simulcast Auction feature, you will need to provide Manheim with
certain information, including your name and your AutoTech Number located on your
Auction Access Card. If you do not wish to provide this information, you will not
be able to use this feature.
In addition, in order to purchase a vehicle using the Simulcast Auction feature,
you will need to provide your Auction Access number and Dealer Representative number,
which will be sent to the auction from which you wish to purchase a vehicle so that
the auction may process your payment. You are solely responsible for maintaining
the confidentiality of your Auction Access and Dealer Representative numbers, and
are responsible for all activities that occur under these numbers.
By using the Simulcast Auction feature, you agree to be bound by any terms and conditions
of the auction you participate in, including the purchase policies of such auction.
These terms and conditions may include, but are not limited to, terms regarding
payment of all amounts when due and restrictions regarding the availability of such
vehicle. The additional terms and conditions and/or purchase policies will be posted
or linked to on the Simulcast Auction feature or available through the auction that
you are virtually attending. Please read these additional terms and conditions and
The Lanes Online feature allows users to submit information online in an effort
to secure desired run numbers at upcoming Manheim auctions. While the Lanes Online
feature gives you access to the "Real-Time" information you need to compete for
the most valuable auction run numbers, we do not guarantee that you will receive
any particular run numbers as a result of using this feature. In addition, dealer
registration at the auctions for which run numbers are requested is required to
use this feature; if you are not registered at the relevant auction, you will not
be able to use this feature.
Our myAccount feature is a service within TRAAuctions.com that allows members to
view account balances, create custom invoices, view and make online payments, review
vehicle histories and receive email notifications of the sales status of selected
vehicles. Due to the confidential information contained in myAccount, you are required
to provide additional information to register for myAccount. (For additional information
regarding myAccount registration, see the "Registration and Passwords" section below.)
In addition, your use of the myAccount service is subject to your agreement to additional
terms and conditions that will be presented to you at the time you register for
myAccount. To receive email notifications about the status of selected vehicles,
you must provide a working email address as part of your myAccount registration.
Because email messages can be unexpectedly delayed or undeliverable, we cannot guarantee
the delivery or timeliness of any email notifications you request. We make every
effort to ensure that the account information and any other information we provide
via the myAccount feature is accurate; however, despite our efforts, inaccuracies
may appear from time to time. You should confirm any information that is important
to your decision, including, without limitation, your account information, before
you act on it.
Manheim Market Report (MMR)
Our MMR feature is the industry's only daily price guide that computes estimated
vehicle prices from millions of actual sales from the various individual Manheim
auctions. Members can elect to use an Internet-only version of MMR, or can elect
to download MMR software onto a PC or Palm-type handheld. While we make every effort
to provide software that is useful, we cannot guarantee to functionality or performance
of any software provided on the TRAAuctions.com site, nor can we guarantee that
any software you download will be virus-free or otherwise safe for use on your computer
or device. Use or download of MMR software or any other software we provide is at
your own risk and is subject to agreement to the end-user agreement that is available
upon download of the software.
Other Member Features
Members can use additional TRAAuctions.com features to get detailed information
on any of Manheim's facilities located around the country (including contacts, maps
and directions, sale dates and calendars, dealer registration forms and policies),
view pre-sale inventories by auction or by consignor, search for particular vehicles,
and review the actual post-sale prices of cars sold at Manheim auctions to better
determine future pricing strategies. In addition, Manheim may add additional features
or functionality to the site in the future. As is the case with many of the current
features on the site and as may be the case with future features, you may be subject
to additional terms and conditions that specifically apply to your use of those
features or your purchase or use of products or services available through those
features. Such additional terms and conditions will be posted or linked to on the
site in the area where you access the feature. By using these services or features
you agreed to be bound by any additional terms and conditions that may apply to
the applicable feature. As with all of our information, the information we provide
about our auctions and vehicles is subject to change; before you act on any such
information, you should confirm that it is accurate.
