To retract a confirmed bid, you must contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. Please include the item listing number and the reason for the retraction. All bid retraction requests received less than 12 hours before an auction closes will not be processed regardless of the reason. All bid retraction requests received without a valid explanation will not be processed. Bidders who retract their bids may not place new bids on that item. It is up to the discretion of the Official London 2012 Auction whether or not your bid retraction request will be accepted.
Please note that all auctions feature overtime bidding, which means that bidding will continue until the designated end time or until 2 minutes after the last bid, whichever comes later.
Example: If the auction is set to end at 4:00pm and a bid is placed a 3:59pm, the auction is extended for 2 more minutes and will be set to close at 4:01pm. If another bid is placed between 3:59 pm and 4:01pm, the auction will be extended for another 2 minutes after the last bid. This process will continue until there are no bids placed within any of the extended periods of time, the expiration of which shall result in the auction officially closing.
