You are responsible for designating roles with rights and responsibilities for each Authorized User, and you may change those roles, including the Owner role, at any time. You will be deemed to have taken any action that you permit, assist or facilitate any person or entity to take related to this Agreement, Your Materials or use of the Services. You are responsible for any Authorized User’s use of Your Materials and the Services. You will ensure that all Authorized Users comply with your obligations under this Agreement and that the terms of your agreement with each Authorized User are consistent with this Agreement. If you become aware of any violation of your obligations under this Agreement caused by an Authorized User, you will immediately suspend access to Your Materials and the Services by such Authorized User.
4. Fees and Payment.
4.1 Service Fees. You will pay us the applicable fees and charges provided to you or posted on Our Site for use of the Services. All amounts payable by you under this Agreement will be paid to us without setoff or counterclaim, and without any deduction or withholding. Fees and charges will be effective when fees and charges are provided to you or posted on Our Site, unless we expressly state otherwise in a notice.
(a) You will pay us using one of the payment methods we support. To use a Service, you must provide us with valid credit card information from a credit card or credit cards acceptable by us (“Your Credit Card”) as well as valid bank account information for a bank account or bank accounts acceptable by us (conditions for acceptance may be modified or discontinued by us at any time without notice) (“Your Bank Account”). You will use only a name you are authorized to use in connection with a Service and will update all of the information you provide to us in connection with the Services as necessary to ensure that it at all times remains accurate, complete, and valid. You authorize us (and will provide us documentation evidencing your authorization upon our request) to verify your information (including any updated information), to obtain credit reports about you from time to time, to obtain credit authorizations from the issuer of Your Credit Card, and to charge Your Credit Card or debit Your Bank Account for any sums payable by you to us (in reimbursement or otherwise).
(b) If we determine that your actions or performance may result in returns, chargebacks, claims, disputes, violations of our terms or policies, or other risks to us or third parties, then we may in our sole discretion withhold any payments to you for as long as we determine any related risks to us or third parties persist. For any amounts that we determine you owe us, we may (a) charge Your Credit Card or any other payment instrument you provide to us; (b) offset any amounts that are payable by you to us (in reimbursement or otherwise) against any payments we may make to you or amounts we may owe you; (c) invoice you for amounts due to us, in which case you will pay the invoiced amounts upon receipt; (d) reverse any credits to Your Bank Account; or (e) collect payment or reimbursement from you by any other lawful means. If we determine that your account—or any other account you have operated—has been used to engage in deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity (including the sale of counterfeit goods), or to repeatedly violate our Policies, then we may in our sole discretion permanently withhold any payments to you.
4.3 Taxes. Each party will be responsible, as required under applicable Law, for identifying and paying all taxes and other governmental fees and charges (and any penalties, interest, and other additions to these fees and charges) that are imposed on that party upon or with respect to the transactions and payments under this Agreement. All fees payable by you are exclusive of Indirect Taxes, except where applicable Law requires otherwise. We may charge and you will pay applicable Indirect Taxes that we are legally obligated or authorized to collect from you. You will provide such information to us as reasonably required to determine whether we are obligated to collect Indirect Taxes from you. All payments made by you to us under this Agreement will be made free and clear of any deduction or withholding, as may be required by Law. If any such deduction or withholding (including but not limited to cross-border withholding taxes) is required on any payment, you will pay such additional amounts as are necessary so that the net amount received by us is equal to the amount then due and payable under this Agreement. We will provide you with such tax forms as are reasonably requested in order to reduce or eliminate the amount of any withholding or deduction for taxes in respect of payments made under this Agreement.
5. Term; Termination.
5.1 Term. The term of this Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and will remain in effect until terminated under this Section.
5.2 Termination. You may at any time close your User Account or your Business Account or terminate this Agreement upon notice to us via merchant support, email, or similar means. We may close your User Account or Business Account or terminate this Agreement for convenience with 30 days’ advance notice. We may suspend or close your User Account or Business Account, or terminate this Agreement immediately if we determine that (a) you have materially breached the Agreement and failed to cure within 7 days of a cure notice unless your breach exposes us to liability toward a third party, in which case we are entitled to reduce, or waive, the cure period at our reasonable discretion; (b) your Business Account has been, or our controls identify that it may be, used for deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; or (c) your use of the Services has harmed, or our controls identify that it might harm, other merchants, customers, partners, or our legitimate interests. We will promptly notify you of any such account suspension or closure, or agreement termination via email or similar means, indicating the reason and any options to appeal, except where we have reason to believe that providing this information will hinder the investigation or prevention of deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or will enable you to circumvent our safeguards.
5.3 Effect of Suspension. If we suspend your right to access or use any portion or all of the Services, you remain responsible for all fees and charges incurred before the suspension but not settled on your Business Account.

6.4 Case Studies and Suggestions.

You hereby irrevocably assign to us all right, title, and interest in and to the Case Studies and Suggestions and agree to provide us any assistance we require to document, perfect, and maintain our rights in the Case Studies and Suggestions. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to mean that you are required to provide Case Studies or Suggestions. You represent and warrant that (x) your Case Studies and Suggestions do not violate any rights of any third-party, and are not subject to any license or other terms that grant any rights to Amazon’s or its affiliates’ materials to a third-party or otherwise requires such materials to be disclosed or distributed, licensed for the purpose of making derivative works, or redistributable at no charge, and (y) you have full rights and authority to grant the foregoing rights without needing additional approval from, or creating monetary liability to, any third-party.
7.1 Your Indemnification Obligations. You will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless us, our affiliates and licensors, and each of their respective employees, officers, directors, and representatives from and against any third-party Claim arising from or relating to: (a) your or any Authorized User’s use of the Services (including any activities under your Business Account and use by your employees and personnel); (b) an actual or alleged breach of any obligation in this Agreement or non-compliance with applicable Laws by you, Authorized Users or Your Materials; or (c) any sales channels owned or operated by you, Your Products (including the offer, sale, fulfillment (except to the extent attributable to your use of Amazon fulfillment services, if any), refund, return or adjustments of Your Products), and Your Materials, any actual or alleged infringement of any intellectual property rights by any of the foregoing, and any related personal injury, death or property damage; or (d) Your Taxes.

THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY LAW, OR TO THE EXTENT ANY STATUTORY RIGHTS APPLY THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED, LIMITED OR WAIVED, WE AND OUR AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS (A) MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE REGARDING THE SERVICES, AND (B) DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED OR EXPRESS WARRANTIES (I) OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR QUIET ENJOYMENT, (II) ARISING OUT OF ANY COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE, (III) THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR FREE OR FREE OF HARMFUL COMPONENTS, AND (IV) THAT ANY OF YOUR MATERIALS WILL BE SECURE OR NOT OTHERWISE LOST OR ALTERED.

FURTHER, NEITHER WE NOR ANY OF OUR AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY COMPENSATION, REIMBURSEMENT, OR DAMAGES ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH: (A) YOUR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, INCLUDING AS A RESULT OF ANY (I) TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT OR SUSPENSION OF YOUR USE OF OR ACCESS TO THE SERVICES, OR (II) OUR DISCONTINUATION OF ANY OR ALL OF THE SERVICES; (B) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES; (C) ANY INVESTMENTS, EXPENDITURES, OR COMMITMENTS BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR YOUR USE OF OR ACCESS TO THE SERVICES; OR (D) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, ALTERATION OF, OR THE DELETION, DESTRUCTION, DAMAGE, LOSS OR FAILURE TO STORE ANY OF YOUR MATERIALS OR OTHER DATA.

10. Modifications to this Agreement.
We may modify this Agreement (including any Policies) at any time by posting a revised version on Our Site or by otherwise notifying you in accordance with Section 11.10. The modified terms will become effective upon posting or, if we notify you by email, as stated in the email message. By continuing to use the Service after the effective date of any modifications to this Agreement, you agree to be bound by the modified terms. It is your responsibility to check Our Site regularly for modifications to this Agreement. We last modified this Agreement on the date listed at the beginning of this Agreement.
11.1 Assignment. You will not assign or otherwise transfer this Agreement or any of your rights and obligations under this Agreement, without our prior written consent. Any assignment or transfer in violation of this Section 11.1 will be void. We may assign this Agreement without your consent (a) in connection with a merger, acquisition or sale of all or substantially all of our assets, or (b) to any affiliate or as part of a corporate reorganization; and effective upon such assignment, the assignee is deemed substituted for Amazon as a party to this Agreement and Amazon is fully released from all of its obligations and duties to perform under this Agreement. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective permitted successors and assigns.
11.2 Entire Agreement. This Agreement incorporates the Policies by reference and is the entire agreement between you and us regarding the subject matter of this Agreement. This Agreement supersedes all prior or contemporaneous representations, understandings, agreements, or communications between you and us, whether written or verbal, regarding the subject matter of this Agreement. We will not be bound by, and specifically object to, any term, condition or other provision that is different from or in addition to the provisions of this Agreement (whether or not it would materially alter this Agreement) including for example, any term, condition or other provision (a) submitted by you in any order, receipt, acceptance, confirmation, correspondence or other document, (b) related to any online registration, response to any request for bid, request for proposal, request for information, or other questionnaire, or (c) related to any invoicing process that you submit or require us to complete. If the terms of this document are inconsistent with the terms contained in any Policy, the terms contained in this document will control, except that the Service Terms and the Partner Program Terms will control over this document, respectively.
11.3 Force Majeure. We and our affiliates will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under this Agreement where the delay or failure results from any cause beyond our reasonable control, including acts of God, labor disputes or other industrial disturbances, electrical or power outages, utilities or other telecommunications failures, earthquake, storms or other elements of nature, blockages, embargoes, riots, acts or orders of government, acts of terrorism, or war.
11.4 Governing Law. The laws of the State of Washington, without reference to conflict of law rules, govern this Agreement and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and us. The United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement.
11.5 Disputes. We and you each consent that any dispute with us or claim relating in any way to this Agreement or your use of the Services will be resolved by binding arbitration as described in this paragraph, rather than in court, except that (i) you may assert claims in a small claims court that is a Governing Court if your claims qualify; (ii) you or we may bring suit in the Governing Courts, submitting to the jurisdiction of the Governing Courts and waiving our respective rights to any other jurisdiction, to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights; and (iii) we may bring any claims related to your sale of counterfeit products using the Services in the Governing Courts and seek any remedy available under law related to those claims. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would. Before you may begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent, CSC 300 Deschutes Way SW, Suite 208 MC-CSC1, Tumwater, WA 98501. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its commercial rules. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. The expedited procedures of the AAA’s rules will apply only in cases seeking exclusively monetary relief under $50,000, and in such cases the hearing will be scheduled to take place within 90 days of the arbitrator’s appointment. Likewise, we will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs from you in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person at a mutually agreed location. We and you each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we and you each waive any right to a jury trial.
11.6 Trade Compliance. In connection with this Agreement, each party will comply with all applicable import, re-import, sanctions, anti-boycott, export, and re-export control laws and regulations, including all such Laws that apply to a U.S. company, such as the Export Administration Regulations, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, and economic sanctions programs implemented by the Office of Foreign Assets Control. For clarity, you are solely responsible for compliance related to the manner in which you choose to use the Services, including your transfer and processing of Your Materials, the provision of Your Materials to Authorized Users, and sale and fulfillment of Your Products. You represent and warrant that you and your financial institutions, or any party that owns or controls you or your financial institutions, are not subject to sanctions or otherwise designated on any list of prohibited or restricted parties, including but not limited to the lists maintained by the United Nations Security Council, the U.S. Government (e.g., the Specially Designated Nationals List and Foreign Sanctions Evaders List of the U.S. Department of Treasury, and the Entity List of the U.S. Department of Commerce), the European Union or its Member States, or other applicable government authority.
11.7 Independent Contractors; Non-Exclusive Rights. We and you are independent contractors, and this Agreement will not be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, agency, or employment relationship. You will not make any representations, warranties, or guarantees to any third party on behalf of Amazon. Neither party, nor any of their respective affiliates, is an agent of the other for any purpose or has the authority to bind the other. Each party is solely responsible for establishing the prices of its own products and services. Both parties reserve the right (a) to develop or have developed for its products, services, concepts, systems, or techniques that are similar to or compete with the products, services, concepts, systems, or techniques developed or contemplated by the other party, and (b) to assist third party technology partners or systems integrators who may offer products or services which compete with the other party’s products or services.
11.8 Language. All communications and notices made or given pursuant to this Agreement must be in the English language. If we provide a translation of the English language version of this Agreement, the English language version of this Agreement will control if there is any conflict.
11.9 Confidentiality and Publicity. You may use Amazon Confidential Information only in connection with your use of the Service as permitted under this Agreement. You will not disclose Amazon Confidential Information during the Term or at any time during the 5-year period following the end of the Term. You will take all reasonable measures to avoid disclosure, dissemination or unauthorized use of Amazon Confidential Information, including, at a minimum, those measures you take to protect your own confidential information of a similar nature. You will not issue any press release or make any other public communication with respect to this Agreement or your use of the Services.
(a) To You. We may provide any notice to you under this Agreement by: (i) posting a notice on Our Site; or (ii) sending a message to the email address then
associated with your User Account. Notices we provide by posting on Our Site will be effective upon posting, and notices we provide by email will be effective when we send the email. It is your responsibility to keep your email address current. You will be deemed to have received any email sent to the email address then associated with your User Account when we send the email, whether or not you actually receive the email.

11.11 No Third-Party Beneficiaries. Except as set forth in Section 7, this Agreement does not create any third-party beneficiary rights in any individual or entity that is not a party to this Agreement.
11.12 No Waivers. The failure by us to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a present or future waiver of such provision nor limit our right to enforce such provision at a later time. All waivers by us must be in writing to be effective.
11.13 Severability. If any portion of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. Any invalid or unenforceable portions will be interpreted to effect and intent of the original portion. If such construction is not possible, the invalid or unenforceable portion will be severed from this Agreement but the rest of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
