Section 3. Options and Procedures for Buying Domain Names

    a. Curing Posting Errors and Discrepancies. Although Ron Sterling uses due diligence and in good faith specifies, modifies, and posts all information found on this site, there may be errors or discrepancies between two listings of the same product, conflicts in pricing, and other misstatements due to typographical or editing errors, he will not be responsible for such errors other than to remedy such conflicts through discussion and negotiation. Errors that negatively impact a buyer will only be corrected to the extent that a price may be adjusted, or a refund may be due, or the product can be returned with an 85% refund. Refunds of full prices of domain names will not take place due to the costs of the processing to return a domain name to the original owner after a transfer has been made. Any additional costs beyond 85% of the original stated price in a written agreement or on a valid receipt will be the sole responsibility of the Buyer.

    b. Advisable, Recommended Buying Service. Ron Sterling strongly advises the use of Escrow.com services for all domain name transactions. However, even with those services, there can be occurrences of a domain name dispute or some other unexpected delay in processing a transfer of ownership. Ron Sterling cannot and will not be held liable, and Buyer will not attempt to hold Ron Sterling or his companies, relatives, executors, or other representatives liable for such domain name transfer difficulties. Ron Sterling will use his best efforts to assist in transfers.

    c. "Buyer's Remorse." This term is used herein to apply to a Buyer who, after purchase, decides or is mandated in some manner to not complete the transfer of ownership or distribution of funds prior to any formal transfer of ownership. In the sole discretion of the Seller, such a Buyer may be granted the right to an 80% refund. However, due to the complexity of the transfer process, Ron Sterling, even though using best efforts, cannot guarantee that this option can take place. After transfer of funds and ownership of domain name(s) has taken place, any requested refund will require negotiation and agreements in writing to the costs and terms of returning the domain name to the original owner.

    d. Offer Processing and Priorities. Any Initial Offer or Followup Offer for Buying a Particular Domain or Group of Domains must take place by eMail using the Contact Form for this Site. Click Here to Contact Me.

    e. The choice of which potential Buyer is allowed to purchase a domain name and the priorities accorded thereto are as follows:

      (1) Ron Sterling reserves the right to accept additional offers after a first offer until the fifth calendar day (120 hours) after that first offer. The official recorded time for offers is Hawaiian/Aleutian (UTC 10).

      (2) Ron Sterling will post a notice next to the domain name or names that have received offers along with dates and times for such offers and the deadline date that will end that period for any further offers for that purchase. Allowing offers and setting an offering time period is a courtesy of Ron Sterling's to give potential buyers a chance to make more than one offer in a given 120-hour period without holding an auction.

      (3) Ron Sterling is not obligated in any way, whatsoever, to choose any offer that is below the Buy It Now price posted at the time of a first offer. If he chooses to accept an offer at the end of the 120 hour offer period, he will choose the highest offer. Again, this is a courtesy to Buyers who might wish to spend less than the Buy It Now Price and allow potential Buyers to register what they decide is the value of a particular item.

      (4) At the end of the 120-hour offer period, Ron Sterling will notify each offeror of the outcome of the Offers, starting with the highest offer acceptable. If the highest offeror has changed their mind and does not wish to follow through with the purchase of that domain(s), they may do so. Offerors are not obligated in any way, whatsoever, to accept Buyer's counteroffer or award of purchase rights at the end of the 120-hour period. Seller is only obligated to complete a sale and transfer ownership when Buyer uses the Buy It Now Button and Escrow.com completes it transfer of funds and ownership. Seller is not obligated to sell an item to any offeror who does not use the But It Now Button, and if Seller chooses to sell to the highest offeror at the end of the 120-hour offer period, he will notify such offerors of the outcome. Refusal of an offeror to follow through with a purchase at the time of notification is allowable. However, such a refusal by the offeror cannot be reconsidered by the Buyer and it is deemed a terminated offer to that Offeror and is final to that offeror until the next offer of that particular domain name. All offers, counteroffers, and communications regarding payment and transfer of ownership must take place in writing by email. No other communication is considered legally sufficient by the Seller, Ron Sterling.

      (5) Seller, Ron Sterling, is not obligated in any way, whatsoever, to choose any offer that is below the Buy It Now price posted at the time of a first offer. If he chooses to accept an offer at the end of the 120-hour offer period, he will choose the highest offer first. Again, this is a courtesy to Buyers who might wish to spend less than the Buy It Now Price and allow potential Buyers to register what they decide is the value of a particular item.

      (6) Offerors are solely responsible for tracking any ongoing notices regarding number of offers made and the time period being allowed for offers. Ron Sterling has no obligation, whatsoever, for notifying Offerors by any other means than posting such information on this website next to the relevant domain(s).

      (7) Ron Sterling may use those offer prices, if quite different from the Buy It Now Price, to modify pricing at any time outside of 120-hour buying period. If he chooses to modify the Buy It Now Price downward from its original Buy It Now Price, he guarantees notice to all offerors at that time of the new Buy It Now Price. The Buy It Now Price will never by increased during a 120 hour offer period. No offers above the Buy It Now Price will be valid or acceptable. When a Buyer clicks on the Buy It Now Button, that buyer will be directed to Escrow.com to begin the process of transferring funds to the Seller and ownership of the domain(s) to the Buyer.

      (8) All offers can be cancelled at any time up to and before actual transfer of funds and domain name(s) ownership, but may be subject to an 85% refund due to time and expenses related to such a cancellation.

      (9) If you do not wish to use Escrow.com to process the funding and ownership transfers, you can make an offer that is the same as the Buy It Now Price. Any offer made for the same price as the Buy It Now Price but NOT made through use of the Buy It Now Button, will be deemed to be a transaction that will take place through this site's SquareUp.com account by way of a specific invoice sent from that account to the email of the Offeror/Buyer. Funds will need to be cleared by the SquareUp.com process before Ron Sterling requests the transfer of the domain name ownership to the new owner. Funds may also be transferred to Seller by wire or by Chase Bank's Zelle app. All of the domain sale items listed on this Site are registered with GoDaddy.com. The transfer of ownership is much easier if the Buyer signs up for an account at GoDaddy (it's free). However, there is no requirement that the domain ownership transfer takes place through GoDaddy. In any event, if the transfer of funds is made in some other manner, such as wire transfer or using Chase Bank's Zelle app, the ownership transfer cannot be started until funds are cleared and available. In the event that Ron Sterling is incapacitated and cannot use any other service but Escrow.com for timely processing of payment and ownership transfer, Buyer will be required to use Escrow. com.

      (10) Buy It Now processes done by either Escrow.com or Squareup.com are the sole responsibility of those entities, and Ron Sterling will not be liable for any losses or other damages that may occur due to errors or internal rules and regulations and Terms of Service for those entities.

      (11) No names or amounts or any other identifying information will be disclosed on the website or in any communication from the Seller.

      (12) No agreements for sale of a domain at all, at a given price, or on a given day will be honored unless made in writing and electronically signed by prospective owner or their representative and delivered by email to Ron Sterling or to a representative at Escrow.com. Fax, phone, and text messages will not be honored for closing a sale, unless allowed by Escrow.com.

      (13) Ron Sterling does not guarantee any particular domain name to be uniquely usable or brandable. Such considerations are solely the responsibility of the buyer and Ron Sterling will not be liable for any losses or damages related thereto.

      (14) If a buyer has the opportunity to buy a domain name of the same prefix with different suffixes, ie, domain.com, domain.net, domain.org, domain.us, domain.io (etc) that is owned by Ron Sterling and available for sale, and does not choose to do so, Ron Sterling will not be held liable for any damages, losses, or conflict resolution expenses related to a sale of such prefix-similar domains to other parties.
