Terms of use

These Terms set out the conditions upon which you may access the Site.

Becoming a Registered User
Becoming a Registered User is free. You may only apply to become a Registered User if you can form a legally binding contract that is enforceable against you. In submitting your application to become a Registered User, you warrant that you can form a legally binding contract.

Accurate Information
You warrant that you will provide complete, accurate and current information when applying to become a Registered User. You must maintain and update your information held by Ocean Spray to ensure it is kept current at all times. Ocean Spray may phone or email you to verify these details.

You must not register as a Register User under multiple identities or personas (whether false or not). This requirement does not prevent related persons or companies from registering, provided they disclose their relationship to Ocean Spray at the time of registration.

Acceptance of the Terms, and provision of the information above, will enable you to access further information in relation to CranberryAuction. It does not impose any obligation:

  • on you to apply to become a Qualified Bidder; or
  • on Ocean Spray to accept any application you may make to become a Qualified Bidder, or to sell you any cranberry products via CranberryAuction.

Once you have submitted this Registration Form and your registration has been accepted by Ocean Spray, you will have access to a summary of the Qualification Process.
