  7. These Terms and Conditions, especially as they relate to the qualifications of potential bidders, are designed for the protection and benefit of Seller, and do not create any additional rights or causes of action for Bidder. On a case-by-case basis, and at the sole discretion of Seller or BHGRE Alliance LLC, exceptions to certain Terms and Conditions may be made.
  8. BHGRE Alliance LLC is acting solely as the designated agent of the Seller and not as an agent for Bidder.
