6.1 Before the participation in an auction, Auctionata verifies the persons who want to participate in it. Auctionata is therefore entitled to verify the identity of a customer before his participation in an auction. Customers are verified, if their identity has been proven towards Auctionata. This is especially the case, if:
- Customers have concluded a consignment agreement with Auctionata,
- Customers have already purchased goods in the Online Shop and have paid and accepted the items or have picked up items subject to the presentation of an ID,
- Customers are personally known to Auctionata,
- Customers have been verified by means of a copy of an ID, via credit card, via a credit agency or via the provision of security and/or bank information and, as required, also can document their credit reference.
6.2 Auctionata is entitled at any time to make each bidding process dependent upon the provision of security, bank information, information from a credit agency or via the blocking of a certain volume of the credit card limit.
