Although you (“you”) have been looking at merchandise on a retailer’s (“Retailer”) website (for the sake of clarity, “website” as used herein means a site on the internet, mobile app, tablet app, or similar concepts) or a marketplace’s (“Marketplace”) website, any purchases that you make through this checkout (the “Borderfree Checkout”) will be made from Borderfree, Inc. ("Borderfree", “we” or “our”) (as more fully described below). By visiting the Borderfree Checkout, placing an order for the purchase of merchandise from Borderfree, including through a Marketplace, and/or using your Borderfree account, you are agreeing that such order for a purchase (a “Purchase”) is bound by the terms & conditions (“Terms & Conditions”) set forth herein.
Nature of Transaction. Borderfree contracts with online retailers, including the Retailer, and Marketplaces to make available retailers’ merchandise to consumers, such as you, for international delivery through the Borderfree network. The high-level view of the process (and your and our related rights and obligations) is as follows (please note this is only the high-level view – with more specifics and exceptions provided in these Terms & Conditions below):
- You choose merchandise on the Retailer’s website.
- Through the Borderfree Checkout, you will be provided with an opportunity to make a Purchase at a price and in a currency selected by you, inclusive of parcel processing, international shipping, brokerage and customs clearance costs. You may also be given the option (a) to have the price be inclusive of import duty and taxes and/or (b) not to have the price be inclusive of import duty and taxes (and therefore be responsible for payment of import duties and taxes). Please note that the Purchase price total is exclusive of any surcharges that may be imposed by the issuing bank of any credit card you use for the Purchase.
- By clicking the “Submit Order” button, you are making a Purchase through the Borderfree Checkout, and you acknowledge that your transaction will be with Borderfree, not with the Retailer. Borderfree will send you an email stating that your Purchase request has been received.
- Please note that when you click the "Submit Order" button (or equivalent) this does not mean that your Purchase has been accepted, as all orders are subject to acceptance by Borderfree. We are not obliged to accept and/or process your Purchase and may, at our discretion, decline to accept and/or process your Purchase. You do, however, acknowledge that by clicking on the "Submit Order" button (or equivalent), you enter into an obligation to pay for your Purchase in the event that your Purchase is accepted by us. Upon successful verification by Borderfree of the payment information you provide, Borderfree will purchase, with its own payment information, such merchandise from the Retailer for the sole purpose of reselling it to you.
- After Borderfree has purchased the merchandise from the Retailer and before Borderfree accepts your Purchase, Borderfree will authorize the price total through the payment method that you have selected. A hold or a tentative charge for the price total will be placed on your payment method until the time when Borderfree accepts your Purchase. If we successfully authorize or capture the price total, we will send you an order confirmation email. You acknowledge that if Borderfree is unable to verify the payment information you provide, Borderfree representatives may contact you and/or your tender type issuer and/or take other commercially reasonable actions to confirm your identity and/or your intent to place the order. If the merchandise does not arrive at Borderfree’s facility within thirty (30) days of your Purchase, the price total authorized through your payment method will be released.
- If Borderfree does not accept your Purchase, Borderfree makes no commitment of any kind to provide merchandise to you and no contract is formed between you and Borderfree. If we have successfully authorized the price total, Borderfree will accept your Purchase at the point in time when we receive the merchandise that you ordered from the Retailer. We will send you a shipment confirmation email and capture the price total that we had previously authorized when we ship the ordered merchandise to you.
- The merchandise in your Purchase shall materially conform to the product description of such merchandise that you viewed (prior to purchase) on Retailer’s website. If you are under 18 years old, considered a minor in your local jurisdiction, or the equivalent thereof, you may use the Borderfree Checkout only with the permission and involvement of a parent or guardian. To the extent not prohibited by applicable law and subject to the provisions of these Terms & Conditions, Borderfree reserves the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel orders in their sole discretion.
Non-Commercial Use Intent and Compliance with Applicable Export, Import and Sanctions Law(s). Merchandise available for Purchase from Borderfree is intended for personal, non-commercial use, and purchase of any merchandise for resale purposes is prohibited. Further, by agreeing to these Terms & Conditions, you are certifying that any items in a Purchase will not be re-exported, sold, or transferred in violation of any applicable laws, including the U.S. Export Administration Regulations or applicable U.S. sanctions and embargoes administered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Any attempt to have commodities, technology and/or software exported from the United States that are not in accordance with the U.S. Export Administration Regulations and any other applicable law is strictly prohibited. ALTHOUGH WE ARE FACILITATING A PURCHASE AND DELIVERY TO YOU, YOU ARE THE PARTY IMPORTING MERCHANDISE INTO YOUR COUNTRY (“IMPORTER OF RECORD”) OR THE CONSIGNEE, AS APPLICABLE, AND YOU MUST COMPLY WITH ALL LAWS AND REGULATIONS OF THE COUNTRY INTO WHICH THE PURCHASED ITEMS ARE BEING DELIVERED. It is your responsibility to know the laws in the country into which you are receiving the merchandise. By purchasing items hereunder, you are acknowledging that such delivery does not violate any laws or regulations in the country into which the purchased merchandise will be delivered.
- Title to Merchandise. After Borderfree purchases and takes title to the relevant merchandise from the Retailer, title of such merchandise shall transfer from Borderfree to you, in the United States, at the time Borderfree ships the merchandise to you from the United States provided the price total in respect of the merchandise has been received by Borderfree.
- Pricing and Billing. Borderfree uses commercially reasonable efforts to provide accurate commodity pricing information, but Borderfree does not guarantee pricing inaccuracy. Borderfree reserves the right, at its sole discretion and before a contract is formed (as described in Section 1 above), to not process or to cancel any orders placed for a product that was priced incorrectly on a Retailer website or in the Borderfree Checkout as a result of an error. If this occurs, Borderfree will notify you by email. In addition, Borderfree reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to correct any error in the stated price total and may contact you with the corrected price total for your acceptance. If the corrected price total is lower than the original price total stated, a refund will be issued to you for the difference. If the corrected price total is higher than the original price total stated, you will be presented with one or more payment options, and if you choose to accept the corrected price total, you will be billed by Borderfree. Charges to your account may be accompanied by a descriptor that includes “Borderfree”, “BF”, the Retailer name, other descriptor or some combination thereof. Borderfree complies with the applicable rules regarding those payment options (including the timeline of when you will be billed). In the event of the receipt by us of any parcel from Retailer containing only part of your Purchase, Borderfree will process the merchandise received, and will only bill for an amount commensurate with the price of the merchandise therein, pro-rated amounts for shipping and/or handling, plus any applicable duty, taxes, or VAT. Notwithstanding the foregoing, unless expressly consented to by you, in no instance will the aggregate amount billed to you by Borderfree exceed the total amount presented at the time of order placement by you.

We will make commercially reasonable efforts to estimate the amount of Import Fees (such estimate, the “Estimate”). However, the Estimate may be more or less than the final actual amount of Import Fees due and payable. We have no control over the Import Fees and cannot always predict with 100% accuracy what the final actual amounts may be. For greater certainty, you should contact your local customs office for further information on the import taxes and customs duties that may be applicable to your Purchase. Import Fees do not include any state, provincial, or local use or similar taxes that a tax authority in the country or other local jurisdiction of destination may levy after the import on apply in respect of your Purchase (“Other Taxes”).

You authorize Borderfree to submit refund claims on your behalf where Borderfree has paid higher Import Fees to customs authorities in the destination country than the Estimate that you have paid, and you hereby acknowledge and agree that Borderfree shall be entitled to directly receive such refund in reimbursement for Import Fees that it has paid on your behalf.

- Returns. As noted above, although you have been looking at merchandise on a Retailer’s or marketplace’s website or app, any Purchases that you make through this Checkout are made from Borderfree. We are ultimately responsible for facilitating delivery of a Purchase to you and facilitating returns. Borderfree’s return policy for any merchandise you Purchase is substantially similar to the terms you will see on the Retailer’s website (“International Returns Policy”), and you may review those terms to determine if any”). An item you may purchase or have purchased mayPurchased through this Checkout may only be returned to Borderfree in compliancereturnd if it complies with the terms of such policy (“International Returns Policy and, only if the return request was made within 90 days from the date the Purchase of such item was placed (or a shorter period if such shorter period appears in the International Returns Policy)(“Allowable Returns”). It is Borderfree’s policy not to accept a return which was placed after such time. We have contracted with the Retailer to have them act on our behalf and publish Allowable Returns policies relevant to that Retailer’s merchandise and assist in our process of allowing or disallowing returns. Please note that not all Retailers have published a returns policy for international Purchases. If they have not, then any reference to such a policy herein should be ignored for your Purchase. Borderfree’s policy is to not accept a return of any such merchandise. Also, this means that if you want to return any merchandise that you have Purchased, you must contact the relevant Retailer for a returns authorization in order to initiate Borderfree’s return process. Regardless of whether a return is an Allowable Return, subject to applicable law, Borderfree may in its reasonable discretion disallow a return for valid business reasons (“Returns Exception”). For example, Borderfree may disallow the return of an item containing animal sourced materials regardless of whether it is an Allowable Return because the import of such items into the United States is restricted. If a return that is not subject to a Returns Exception is authorized by the Retailer and the International Returns Policy is initiated, either Borderfree or the Retailer, on Borderfree’s behalf, will provide you with information regarding the return and instructions on where to ship your return parcel. If and where parcels are shipped back to Borderfree’s facility or shipped to a local facility to be consolidated before being shipped to Borderfree’s facility, title to the merchandise that you are returning will transfer from you to Borderfree after the parcel has arrived at Borderfree’s facility in the United States and we have confirmed the contents of the parcel as conforming to merchandise for which the Retailer authorized the return. If the return has been authorized and we determine that we will dispose of or liquidate the parcel after it has arrived at the local facility rather than shipping it back to Borderfree’s facility, title to the merchandise will transfer automatically from you to the third party designated by Borderfree to carry out the liquidation or destruction, and you authorize Borderfree to carry out such destruction or liquidation provided that Borderfree will reimburse you for the return as set forth in this Section after the destruction or liquidation has been carried out. If allowed pursuant to the International Returns Policy and the processes related to such return, Borderfree will reimburse you for any or all of the following, based on the amount that you paid: the original sales prices of the returned merchandise, duties, taxes, and any credits or debits. Unless otherwise stated in the International Returns Policy (or otherwise determined by Borderfree), if merchandise is allowed to be returned hereunder, (a) you are responsible for all costs associated with returning the merchandise (including without limitation shipping costs, duties or taxes imposed for the return, or non-Borderfree fees that may be levied or charged) and (b) if you are being reimbursed your original shipping costs (or some part of that) pursuant to a service gesture, the International Returns Policy or pursuant to relevant law, and you are only returning part of your order, we may only return those shipping costs (or part of those shipping costs) prorated for the merchandise being returned.
EU Consumer Rights: Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms & Conditions, regarding Purchases that have a ship-to address in the European Union, you have a right to cancel your Purchase and return the merchandise (other than Non-Returnable Merchandise, discussed below) at any time before your order is delivered and within 14 days of the day after your receipt of the merchandise. If your order is delivered in multiple shipments, then the 14-day clock starts on the day after your receipt of the last item in the order. That returns period may be longer if specifically stated in the International Returns Policy. When canceling a Purchase and returning merchandise that was shipped to the European Union, we will reimburse all payments received from you for the merchandise purchased and will also reimburse delivery charges for the least expensive type of delivery offered by us. The refund will be normally made by the original method used by you to pay for the Purchase. When canceling a Purchase and returning merchandise that was shipped to the European Union, in addition to the method described above, you may complete a withdrawal form, located at: https://www.borderfree.com/#/help/eu-withdraw. In order to successfully withdraw from a Purchase, you must send back the merchandise to Borderfree (postmarked) within 14 days of notifying us that you are returning the merchandise. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the merchandise purchased while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right to deduct the cost of any deterioration, up to the price of your Purchase, from the refund to which you are otherwise entitled. If you cancel a Purchase within the 14-day cooling off period (see above), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days after the day on which we or the Retailer as applicable receive the merchandise back or, if earlier, the day on which we receive evidence that you have returned the merchandise to the returns address. “Non-Returnable Merchandise” means the following and may not be returned (unless otherwise stated in the International Returns Policy): perishables (food), items that pose a hygiene risk (e.g., underwear and bathing suits), custom-made or personalised items, and sealed audio-visual items (e.g., CDs and DVDs) or software that are unsealed after delivery, unless such merchandise was damaged or faulty when delivered to you.

Retailer as Shipping Agent
In cases where the Retailer acts as Borderfree’s shipping agent, the Retailer facilitates the delivery of purchased merchandise to you. The title to such merchandise will transfer to you from Borderfree at the time of shipment from the Retailer’s facility. The Retailer, not Borderfree, will be the exporter of record and the U.S. Principal Party in Interest (USPPI) and will be responsible for managing all export compliance with any relevant regulatory agency and/or customs authority. Specifically, Section 5 hereinabove does not apply. Instead, you will work with your Retailer to authorize a licensed customs broker to act as your customs clearance agent.
