In this case, registered participants will be sent an email notification informing them of this situation. Likewise, if they will only affect one or more specific lots and not the whole, the modification could be made exclusively on these lots.

In addition, if a technical issue during the auction is detected after the lot or auction is closed, the lot or lots affected may be reopened, prior notification by email to those users involved.

5. Prevention of money laundering and financing of terrorism
5.1 The Purchaser represents that it understands that BidX1 and the Seller are obligated to comply with anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing regulations.

You further agree that, within the framework of such money laundering rules, BidX1 and/or Seller, as applicable, may individually or jointly, among others:
(a) request additional information and/or documentation
(b) report the transaction as suspicious to the public competent authorities;
(c) provide their data to the competent public authorities;
(d) keep the transaction data in order to comply with the obligations on prevention of money laundering.
5.2 For clarification purposes, in the event that there are Multiple Purchasers, or in those cases where there are Financers, each and every Purchaser shall provide the required documentation and information and each and every Purchaser shall satisfactorily exceed the indicated money laundering prevention control.
5.3 In this sense, in the event that the required documentation is not provided or does not comply with internal standards or policies on money laundering and terrorist financing of BidX1 and / or the Seller, as appropriate and as a result of the obligations imposed by legal imperative, they may: (a) not formalize the public deed of sale; (b) in general, take all actions corresponding to them as regulated entities; and/or (c) withhold the Guarantee Deposit as a penalty for non-compliance.
5.4 Bearing in mind that the foregoing derives from obligations imposed on BidX1 and the Seller by legal imperative, the Purchaser may not, under any of these concepts, claim and/or demand from BidX1 and/or the Seller: (a) to formalize the purchase and sale of the Property, nor (b) the payment of indemnities.
1. General Aspects
1.1. Once the Online Sale has ended and the transfer of the Property to the winning Purchaser has been approved, BidX1 will contact the Seller and the Purchaser so that on the date, time and Notary's office determined in accordance with the information on the Property detailed in the Digital Platform, they formalize the deed of sale of the Property.
1.2. The Purchaser will be directly responsible for the formalization of the deed of sale of the Property and the payment of the full sale price within the period established according to the information of the Property described on the Digital Platform. 10
Likewise, the Purchaser shall be jointly and severally liable for any breach of any obligation by the Multiple Purchasers, the Bidder, the Funding Contributor, and the Provider of Funds, as applicable to them.
For these purposes, a Funding Contributor is considered to be the individual(s) or legal entity(ies), national or foreign, that is not a Purchaser and contributes to the acquisition of the property by means of a contribution of funds, in any form other than that foreseen for the Provider of Funds. In other words, the Funds Provider does not intervene in the Online Sales Process through the Digital Platform, but it does contribute with the delivery of funds in the purchase and sale. For this reason, it is clear that the obligations relating to control policies assumed by the seller and/or Bidx1 within the framework of money laundering regulations will apply to it.
1.3. In this regard, in the event that the Purchaser is the winner of the Online Sale and having been admitted and/or authorized by the Seller to acquire the Property, the public deed of the purchase and sale of the Property is not granted due to intent, fault or negligence on the part of the Multiple Purchasers, the Bidder or the Funding Contributor, Funds Provider, as the case may be, the Purchaser shall be jointly and severally liable for this breach, without prejudice to the right of BidX1 and/or the Seller to take any legal action directly against the Purchaser.
1.4. Any claim or controversy which arises or may arise between the Purchaser and the Bidder, the Purchaser and the Multiple Purchasers, the Purchaser and the Funds Provider, the Purchaser, the Funding Contributor and, in general, between the Purchaser and any other party shall be resolved internally between them, exempting and releasing BidX1 from all responsibility for the information and/or documentation declared by or between them, acts, omissions and, in general, for any controversy that may cause any or all of them in the Online Sale Process and, in particular, in the development of the Online Sale.
1.5. The Seller shall have the right to withdraw from the formalization of the purchase and sale deed of the Property without generating any type of compensation to the Purchaser, in case it evaluates and considers that the Purchaser, as well as any Funding Contributor involved in the operation, does not comply with internal policies and procedures for the prevention of money laundering of capital and financing of terrorism, or to the Vendor’s Admission Policies, given that its obligations as liable party are of mandatory nature.
1.6. The acceptance and/or signature of these Terms and Conditions implies the obligation of the Purchaser and/or the Multiple Purchasers to carry out the consummation of the sale and purchase of the Property by means of granting of the corresponding sale and purchase public deed.
1.7. BIDX1 will send to the Purchaser that has been the winner of the Online Sale a communication by e-mail sent to the account indicated by the Purchaser in the registration process, in which it will transfer said circumstance. In addition, it will inform the Purchaser of the need to complete the control procedures to be carried out by the Seller with respect to the prevention of money laundering and financing of terrorism (by itself or through the natural or legal person(s) that it deems appropriate).
1.8 As a consequence of the statutory obligations, regarding prevention of money laundering, the Seller may:
(i) Unauthorize the operation to the Purchaser / to the Multiple Purchasers that were winner(s) of the Sale Online, in this case, withdrawing from the sale (without the right of the Purchaser to claim compensation of any type for this reason). The formalization of the public deed of sale will not happen, when:
(a) The Purchaser does not complete all the information or does not provide the documentation required in this respect prior to the execution of the public deed of sale or that which is required additionally.
(b) Having completed all the information and provided all the required documentation, it does not comply with Seller's internal standards and policies.
(c) Having completed all the information and provided all the required documentation, it gives rise to the existence of a risk or a potential risk of violating or affecting any legal provision in such matter. 11
(ii) Grant an extension to the Purchaser to grant the deed at a later date, reserving the right to claim in that case the expenses that such change in date may have caused to the Seller. In which case the Purchaser will be notified by an email informing of its decision in this regard.
In the cases provided for in paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) of paragraph (i) above, the Seller may retain the Guarantee Deposit as a penalty.
1.9. The granting of the sale and purchase public deed of the Property shall take place as long as the Purchaser who was the winner of the Property in the Online Sale in the Auction has satisfactorily passed the control procedures in the matter of money laundering regulations and financing of terrorism of the Seller.
1.10. Previous requirements: to grant the sale and purchase public deed, the Purchaser must have satisfactorily passed the control procedure with respect to the prevention of money laundering, as indicated above, and must have all the documentation necessary for the granting of a public deed in Spain in accordance with the notary and mortgage legislation applicable at any given time and the regulations on the prevention of money laundering and the financing of terrorism.
2.1 The sale and purchase public deed shall be granted, once the requirements have been met with regards to the regulation of money laundering and financing of terrorism of the seller indicated in paragraph 5 of this document, within the period indicated in the corresponding section of the Digital Platform in which the legal information of each Property is provided. Likewise, for certain Autonomous Communities, including (but not limited to) Catalonia, the Balearic Islands, Valencia and Andalucías´ special regulations regarding the first refusal and pre-emptive rights of the Public Administration, or the authorization prior to the sale of certain protected housing. As an example, for residential properties located in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands and for residential assets or social housing located in the Valencian Community or in Andalucía, this period may be extended by a maximum of (a) up to 60 calendar days from the date on which the intention to formalize the sale is notified to the Agency or the Regional Ministry of Housing, Public Works and Vertebration of the Territory (“Agencia de la habitabiliad o la Consejería de la Vivienda, Obras públicas y vertebración del territorio”) or to the Andalusian Ministry of Housing (“Consejería de Vivienda de Andalucía”), in order that these can exercise the first refusal right, or (b) until the public entity has issued a resolution in which it has waived their legal right to exercise preferential acquisition. In these cases, the Seller (or the natural or legal person designated by the Seller) will notify the administrative silence or the resignation of the Administration to the Purchaser by an e-mail to the address provided by the Purchaser during the registration process, describing the exact date and time of the granting of the deed of sale and the data of the Notarys´ Ofiice and the authorizing Notary.
2.2 In those cases in which any of these bodies issues a resolution communicating its decision to exercise its right of first refusal over the Property, the public deed of sale will not be granted and the Seller will return to the Purchaser (or to the Multiple Purchasers) the amount of the Guarantee Deposit, within a maximum period of seven (7) working days, without either Party having the right to claim compensation of any kind from the other.
3.1 The Property is acquired as a certain body (“cuerpo cierto”) in the situation of being employed without a title, and in the physical, legal and urban conditions in which it is, comprehended and accepted by the Purchaser, as well as the fact that such circumstances have been taken into consideration for the fixing of the Minimum Selling Price.
3.2 In this sense, the Purchaser/Multiple Purchasers declare, to comprehend and accept that they have been provided with all available information on the Property and that BidX1 acts as the Seller's real estate agent and is therefore not responsible for the condition and/or physical and/or legal condition of the properties nor for the veracity and/or accuracy, authenticity and precision of the information provided by the Seller on the Properties.
4.1 The sale and purchase price will be the final price that the Lot reaches during the Auction, and which is finally accepted by the Vendor in those cases where it is a price which is Subject to Confirmation. This price will be fully paid by the Purchaser/Multiple Purchaser on the date on which the sale and purchase public deed is granted, for which purpose the part already paid as Guarantee Deposit in the Online Sale will be withdrawn on that date and the difference will be paid by the Purchaser up to the total Price. The Price must be paid in any of the ways indicated in the section corresponding to the legal information of each Property in the Digital Platform, including (a) OMF bank transfer; (b) bank check drawn on behalf of the Seller; or (c) any of the foregoing.
5.1 The contents of the deed shall in all cases conform to the model of public deed of sale that is attached to the corresponding section of the Digital Platform in which the legal information of each Property is provided, such model being considered an integral part of the Terms and Conditions of Sale, and therefore, as comprehended and accepted by the Purchaser. Therefore, it will not be possible to negotiate the Clauses of said deed nor its modification, except in those minimum adjustments that are necessary to adapt the deed to the specific conditions of the Parties and of the Property.
6. The Notary's Office
6.1 The Seller suggests in the corresponding section of the Digital Platform where the legal information of each Property is provided, a notary's office in which to grant the public deed of sale. However, in case the Purchaser is not satisfied, he may suggest in advance another notary's office of his choice where the deed of sale will be granted, not being entitled to impose a notary with no reasonable connection to the elements of the transaction.
Likewise, in cases in which the Purchaser has requested financing for the purchase and Law 5/2019, of 15 March, regulating real estate credit contracts, applies, the purchase may be formalized together with the mortgage credit contract, at the notary's office chosen by the Purchaser. For the sake of clarity, the purchase shall in no case be deemed conditional on the Purchaser obtaining financing.
6.2 In the event that the Purchaser does not appear at the formalization of the corresponding sale and purchase deed within the indicated term or that, even appearing, refuses to grant the deed or this cannot be granted for reasons attributable to the Purchaser, the Seller may:
a) Not go ahead with the sale, in which case it will be free to sell the Property to a third party or may require the Purchaser to proceed to grant the corresponding deed, with the right, in both cases, to withhold, as a penalty and without prejudice to other compensation for damages that may correspond, the amount delivered by the Purchaser as a Guarantee Deposit, or alternatively,
b) Claim from the Purchaser the fulfilment of the sales contract, applying the Guarantee Deposit to the payment of the agreed price, as a confirmatory deposit.
6.3 If, on the other hand, the sale and purchase deed cannot be formalized for a reason directly attributable to the Seller, the Purchaser may withdraw from the sale or may require the Seller to proceed to grant the corresponding deed, with the right, in both cases, to claim compensation for any damages that may correspond.
