AGFS is not a party to this contract nor assumes any responsibility arising out of or in connection with it nor is it the seller’s agent. The seller is responsible for the sale of the products and for dealing with any buyer claims or any other issue arising out of or in connection with the contract between the buyer and seller.

We will not be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these conditions if the delay or failure arises from any because which is beyond our reasonable control. This condition does not affect your legal right to have goods sent or services provided within a reasonable time or to receive a refund if goods or services ordered cannot be supplied within a reasonable time owing to a cause beyond our reasonable control.
The laws of some countries do not allow some or all the limitations described above. If these laws apply to you, some or all the above limitations may not apply to you and you might have additional rights.
Nothing in these conditions limits or excludes our responsibility for fraudulent representations made by us or for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or willful misconduct
14. APPLICABLE LAW

If you are a consumer and have your habitual residence in the EU, you additionally enjoy the protection afforded to you by mandatory provisions of the law of your country of residence. We both agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the district of Swiss, which means that you may bring a claim to enforce your consumer protection rights in connection with these Conditions of Use in Swiss or in the EU country in which you live.

Conditions of Sale
Last Updated: 03. January 2020
Conditions of Sale govern the sale of products by AGFS to you. For conditions
relating to the sale by third parties to you on agfs.aero see the Participation
Agreement. We offer a wide range of AGFS Services, and sometimes additional
terms may apply. When you use an AGFS Service you will also be subject to the
terms, guidelines and conditions applicable to that AGFS Service (“Service
Terms”). If these Conditions of Sale are inconsistent with the Service
Terms, those Service Terms will control.
Please read these conditions carefully before placing an order with AGFS. By placing an order with AGFS, you signify your agreement to be bound by these conditions.
Your order is an offer to AGFS to buy the product(s) in your order. When you place an order to purchase a product from AGFS, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order (the “Order Confirmation E-mail”). The Order Confirmation E-mail is acknowledgement that we have received your order and does not confirm acceptance of your offer to buy the product(s) ordered. We only accept your offer, and conclude the contract of sale for a product ordered by you, when we dispatch the product to you and send e-mail confirmation to you that we’ve dispatched the product to you (the “Dispatch Confirmation E-mail”). If your order is dispatched in more than one package, you may receive a separate Dispatch Confirmation E-mail for each package, and each Dispatch Confirmation E-mail and corresponding dispatch will conclude a separate contract of sale between us for the product(s) specified in that Dispatch Confirmation E-mail. Your contract is with AGFS. Without affecting your right of cancellation set out in section 2 below, you can cancel your order for a product at no cost any time before we send the Dispatch Confirmation E-mail relating to that product. This right to cancel does not apply to certain categories of products and services, including digital products or software which are not supplied in a physical format (e.g. on a CD or DVD), once download or use (whichever is earlier) has begun.
You consent to receive sales invoices electronically. Electronic invoices will be made available in pdf format in the Your Account area of the web site. For each delivery, we will inform you in our Dispatch Confirmation E-mail if an electronic invoice is available. For further information about electronic invoices and instructions on how to receive a paper copy please refer to our help pages.
Please note that we sell products only in quantities which correspond to the typical needs of an average household. This applies both to the number of products ordered within a single order and the placing of several orders for the same product where the individual orders comprise a quantity typical for a normal household.
OF CANCELLATION UP TO 14 DAYS, EXCEPTIONS TO CANCELLATION, STATUTORY RIGHT
Unless one of the exceptions listed below applies, you can cancel your order without giving any reason within 14 days from the day on which you or a third party indicated by you (other than the carrier) receives the goods purchased (or last good, lot or piece if it relates to goods or multiple lots or pieces delivered separately) or from the day of the conclusion of the contract, in the case of services or digital content not supplied in a tangible medium (e.g. CD or DVD).
You must inform us (AMEC-EUROPE LTD., Kemp House, 152 City Road, London EC1V 2NX, United Kingdom) of your decision to cancel your order. You may submit your request according to the instructions and forms available on our Returns Support Centre, by contacting us, or using this form. In case you use the return center, we will communicate to you an acknowledgement of receipt by e-mail. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication before the 14 days’ cancellation period has expired and return the item via our return center.
For additional information on the scope, content and instructions for the exercise, please contact our Customer Service.
We will reimburse all payments received from you for the goods purchased, no later than 14 days from the day on which we received the above communication. We will use the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. In any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest. If reimbursement occurs after the maximum time period mentioned above, the amount due to you will as of right be increased.
Note that you must send back the goods by following the instructions available on our return center no later than 14 days from the day on which us you communicate your cancellation. You will have to bear the direct cost of returning these goods. You may be liable if the value of the goods returned diminishes due to the handling of the goods (except when it was necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods).
TO THE RIGHT OF CANCELLATION
The right of cancellation does not apply to:
the delivery of products which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygienic reasons if unsealed by you after delivery, or which are, after delivery, inseparably mixed with other items;
the delivery of sealed audio or video recordings or of sealed software if unsealed by you after delivery;
the supply of goods made to your specifications or clearly personalized;
the supply of goods which may deteriorate or expire rapidly;
a service if AGFS has fully performed it and you accepted when you placed your order that we could start to deliver it, and that you could not cancel it once delivery had started;
the supply of digital content (including apps, digital software, ebooks, MP3, etc) which is not supplied on a tangible medium (e.g. on a CD or DVD) if you accepted when you placed your order that we could start to deliver it, and that you could not cancel it once delivery had started;
the delivery of newspapers, journals or magazines with the exception of subscription contracts for the supply of such publications; and
the supply of beverages whose actual value is dependent on fluctuations in the market which we cannot control.
PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
All prices are exclusive of legally applicable VAT.
We list availability information for products sold by us on the website including on each product information page. Beyond what we say on that page or otherwise on the website, we cannot be more specific about availability. As we process your order, we will inform you by e-mail as soon as possible if any products you order turn out to be unavailable and you will not be charged for those products.
Please note that unless otherwise stated on the website, delivery estimates are just that. They are not guaranteed delivery times and should not be relied upon as such.
Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalogue may be mispriced. We will verify pricing when processing your order and before we take payment. If we have made a mistake and a product’s correct price is higher than the price on the website, we may either contact you before dispatch to request whether you want to buy the product at the correct price or cancel your order. If a product’s correct price is lower than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount and send you the product.
4. PRODUCT INFORMATION
expressly indicated otherwise, AGFS is not the manufacturer of the products
sold on this website. While we work to ensure that product information on our

When ordering products from AGFS for delivery outside of the EU you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from AGFS, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the products. Your privacy is important to us and we would like our international customers to be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.

Department (“We”) participate in the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland. We have certified with the Department of Commerce that we adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles.
If you have any inquiries or complaints about our handling of your personal data under Privacy Shield, or about our privacy practices generally, please contact us at: email@example.com. We will respond to your inquiry promptly. If we are unable to satisfactorily resolve any complaint relating to the Privacy Shield, or if we fail to acknowledge your complaint in a timely fashion, you can submit your complaint to TRUSTe, which provides an independent third-party dispute resolution service based in the United States. TRUSTe has committed to respond to complaints and to provide appropriate recourse at no cost to you. If neither AGFS nor TRUSTe resolves your complaint, you may pursue binding arbitration through the Privacy Shield Panel.
As explained here we sometimes provide personal information to third parties to perform services on our behalf. If we transfer personal information received under the Privacy Shield to a third party, the third party’s access, use, and disclosure of the personal data must also be in compliance with our Privacy Shield obligations, and we will remain liable under the Privacy Shield for any failure to do so by the third party unless we prove we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

We may be required to disclose personal information that we handle under the Privacy Shield in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

Products offered for sale on AGFS must be authentic. The sale of counterfeit products is strictly prohibited. Failure to abide by this policy may result in loss of selling privileges, funds being withheld and destruction of inventory in our possession.
It is each seller’s and supplier’s responsibility to source, sell and fulfil only authentic products. Prohibited products include bootlegs, fakes or pirated copies of products or content; products that have been illegally replicated, reproduced or manufactured, and products that infringe another party’s intellectual property rights. If you sell or supply inauthentic products, we may immediately suspend or terminate your AGFS selling account (and any related accounts) and destroy any inauthentic products in our fulfilment centers at your expense. In addition, we do not pay sellers until we are confident that our customers have received the authentic products they ordered. We may withhold payments if we determine that an AGFS account has been used to sell inauthentic goods, commit fraud or engage in other illegal activity.
We work with manufacturers, rights holders, content owners, vendors and sellers to improve the ways we detect and prevent inauthentic products from reaching our customers. As a result, we remove suspect listings based on our own review of products. We also work with rights holders and law enforcement worldwide to take and support legal action against sellers and suppliers who knowingly violate this policy and harm our customers. In addition to criminal fines and imprisonment, sellers and suppliers of inauthentic products may face civil penalties including the loss of any amounts received from the sale of inauthentic products, the damage or harm sustained by the rights holders, statutory and other damages, and lawyer fees.
We stand behind the products sold on our site and we encourage rights owners who have product authenticity concerns to notify us. We will promptly investigate and take all appropriate actions to protect customers, sellers and rights holders.

Department, Kemp House, 152 City Road, London EC1V 2NX, United Kingdom and its Affiliates (as defined below) (each individually and collectively, “AGFS”) is disclosed to a person engaged in or considering a business relationship with AGFS (the “Supplier”).
1.1 For the purposes of these Terms, with respect to AGFS, “Affiliate” means any entity that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with AGFS.
As used in these Terms, “Confidential Information” means all non-public information which relates to the operations or business of AGFS whether disclosed to the Supplier by AGFS or by third parties and which is designated as confidential or which, given the nature of the information or the circumstances surrounding its disclosure, reasonably should be considered as confidential. Confidential Information includes without limitation:
(i) non-public information relating to AGFS’s technology, customers, business plans, promotional and marketing activities, finances and other business affairs;
(ii) third-party information that AGFS is under an obligation to keep confidential; and
(iii) the nature, content and existence of any agreement, discussions or negotiations between AGFS and Supplier.
Confidential Information may be contained in tangible materials, such as drawings, data, specifications, reports and computer programs, or may be in the nature of unwritten knowledge.
1.2 In consideration for AGFS’s agreeing as it sees fit to disclose Confidential Information and to allow the use of the Confidential Information according to these Terms, the Supplier agrees to be bound by these Terms.
Confidential Information does not include any information that:
(i) is or becomes publicly available without breach of these Terms;
(ii) can be shown by reference to a written document to have been known to the Supplier at the time of its receipt from AGFS;
(iii) is received from a third party who did not acquire or disclose such information by a wrongful or tortious act; or
(iv) can be shown by reference to a written document to have been independently developed by the Supplier by a means other than through its access to any Confidential Information.
of Confidential Information
The Supplier may use Confidential Information only for the purposes of the business relationship between the Supplier and AGFS. Except as expressly provided in these Terms, the Supplier will not disclose Confidential Information to anyone without AGFS’s prior written consent. The Supplier will take all reasonable measures to avoid disclosure, dissemination or unauthorized use of Confidential Information, including, at a minimum, those measures it takes to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature. The Supplier will segregate Confidential Information from the confidential materials of third parties to prevent commingling. Supplier understands that Confidential Information may constitute material non-public information under U.S. securities laws and regulations and will not transact in securities of AGFS based on the Confidential Information.
The Supplier will restrict the possession, knowledge and use of Confidential Information to its employees, Suppliers and entities controlled by it (“Personnel”) who:
(i) have a need to know Confidential Information in connection with the parties’ business relationship; and
(ii) have executed written non-disclosure agreements obligating them to protect the Confidential Information.
The Supplier will ensure that its Personnel comply with these Terms and their respective non-disclosure agreements.
Disclosure to Governmental Entities or Regulatory Authorities
The Supplier may disclose Confidential Information as required to comply with binding orders of governmental entities or regulatory authorities that have jurisdiction over it, provided that the Supplier:
(i) gives AGFS reasonable written notice to allow AGFS to seek an injunctive order or other appropriate remedy;
(ii) provides any assistance which AGFS may reasonably require in order to secure such order or such remedy (with the Supplier’s expenses reasonably incurred in providing such assistance to be reimbursed by AGFS);
(iii) discloses only such information as is required by the governmental entity or regulatory authority; and
(iv) uses commercially reasonable efforts to obtain confidential treatment for any Confidential Information so disclosed.
Ownership of Confidential Information
All Confidential Information will remain the exclusive property of AGFS. AGFS’s disclosure of Confidential Information under these Terms will not constitute an express or implied grant to the Supplier of any rights to or under AGFS’s patents, copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks or other intellectual property rights.
Notice of Unauthorized Use
The Supplier will notify AGFS immediately upon discovery of any unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information or any other breach of these Terms. The Supplier will co-operate with AGFS in every reasonable way to help AGFS regain possession of such Confidential Information and prevent its further unauthorized use.
Return of Confidential Information
The Supplier will return or destroy all tangible materials embodying Confidential Information (in any form and including, without limitation, all summaries, copies and excerpts of Confidential Information) promptly following AGFS’s written request. At AGFS’s option, the Supplier will provide written certification of its compliance with this Clause 8.
The Supplier acknowledges that disclosure or use of Confidential Information in violation of these Terms could cause irreparable harm to AGFS for which monetary damages may be difficult to ascertain or an inadequate remedy. The Supplier therefore agrees that AGFS will have the right, in addition to its other rights and remedies, to seek injunctive relief for any violation of these Terms.
Scope and Termination
These Terms are intended to cover Confidential Information received by the Supplier both prior and subsequent to the commencement of the business relationship. These Terms automatically will terminate upon the completion or termination of the business relationship between the Supplier and AGFS; provided, however, that the Supplier’s obligations with respect to the Confidential Information will survive for five (5) years following such completion or termination. Nothing in these Terms limits the parties’ rights and obligations arising at general law in respect of the Confidential Information following termination of these Terms.
11.1 These Terms will not create a joint venture, partnership or other formal business relationship or entity of any kind, or an obligation to form any such relationship or entity. Each party will act as an independent contractor and not as an agent of the other party for any purpose, and neither will have the authority to bind the other.
11.2 These Terms constitute the entire Agreement between the parties relating to the matters discussed herein and may be amended or modified only with the mutual written consent of the parties. Each party’s obligations hereunder are in addition to, and not exclusive of, any and all of its other obligations and duties to the other party, whether express, implied, in fact or in law. Subject to the limitations set forth in these Terms, these Terms will inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties and their respective successors and assigns. In the event that these Terms are inconsistent with the express terms of any other written agreement/s between AGFS and the Supplier the other written agreement/s will prevail.
11.3 Any failure by AGFS to enforce the Supplier’s strict performance of any provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of AGFS’s right subsequently to enforce such provision or any other provision of these Terms.
11.4 If a provision of these Terms is held invalid under any applicable law, such invalidity will not affect any other provision of these Terms that can be given effect without the invalid provision. Further, all terms and conditions of these Terms will be deemed enforceable to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, and, when necessary, the court is requested to reform any and all terms or conditions to give them such effect.
11.5 The provisions contained in these Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of SWISS and each of the parties submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the court of SWISS
Modern Day Slavery Statement
Last changed on 03. January 2020
AGFS continually works to prevent slavery and human trafficking from taking place in our manufacturing supply chains and operations, in line with the United Kingdom Modern Slavery Act.
AGFS opened its virtual doors on the World Wide Web in January 2020. We are guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking. In each of our segments, we serve our primary customer sets, consisting of consumers, sellers, developers, enterprises, and content creators.
AGFS’s an AMEC-EUROPE LTD. Department internal Code of Business Conduct and Ethics sets out guiding principles and establishes that in performing job duties AGFS employees should always act lawfully, ethically, and in the best interests of AGFS.
AGFS has set clear standards on the prevention of forced labor in its supply chain through its Supplier Code of Conduct (“Supplier Code”), a set of standards required of all manufacturing suppliers, and service providers supporting AGFS’s internal operations. AGFS’s purchase and service agreements require our manufacturing suppliers, and service providers supporting AGFS’s internal operations (e.g. call centers, delivery and fulfillment providers) to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct.
We evaluate and address risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in the Supplier Code which states, among other standards, that:
Our suppliers must not use forced labor – slave, prison, indentured, bonded, or otherwise.
Our suppliers must not traffic workers or in any other way exploit workers by means of threat, force, coercion, abduction, or fraud. Working must be voluntary, and workers must be free to leave work and terminate their employment or other work status with reasonable notice.
Workers shall not be required to pay recruitment, hiring, or other similar fees related to their employment; our suppliers must bear or reimburse to their workers the cost of any such fees. All fees and expenses charged to workers must be disclosed to AGFS and communicated to workers in their native language in advance of employment.
Our suppliers must not require workers to surrender government issued identification, passports, or work permits as a condition of working, and our suppliers may only temporarily hold onto such documents to the extent reasonably necessary to complete legitimate administrative and immigration processing.
Workers must be given clear, understandable contracts regarding the terms and conditions of their engagement in a language understood by the worker.
Suppliers must ensure that each of its staffing or recruiting agencies comply with this Supplier Code and with the more stringent of the applicable laws of the country where work is performed and the worker’s home country.
We use a combination of desk-based research, supply chain mapping against existing human rights indices, as well as internal and industry audit results to analyses the risk of modern slavery in our supply chain and operations. While modern slavery can be found in all countries and industries, we acknowledge that there is a heightened risk with:
domestic and international migrant labor;
contract, agency, and temporary workers;
vulnerable populations (e.g. refugees); and
young, or student workers.
In addition to the controls listed below, this year AGFS launched a process to investigate suppliers with a heightened risk of modern slavery specifically in relation to migrant workers. Our process focuses on listening to workers’ perspectives about their recruitment experience and working/living conditions and relating anonymous feedback from workers directly to management to drive improvement. In addition, we are expanding regional teams to engage with suppliers in high-risk regions, and working with industry programmers, such the Responsible Workplace Program currently operating in Malaysia.
AGFS assesses manufacturing suppliers and service providers for continued compliance and improvement. AGFS uses a risk-based approach to determine the frequency of assessments and which manufacturing suppliers and service providers should be assessed. Many sites are assessed multiple times a year, including through follow-up assessments to address specific findings. AGFS may terminate its relationships with any supplier that violates our Supplier Code or does not cooperate during assessments. Assessments may include:
Site inspection of all areas of the site and any living quarters;
Confidential worker interviews or surveys conducted without site management present;
Review and analysis of site documents or licenses to assess workers’ age, contracts, compensation, working hours, and workplace conditions;
Identification of past compliance issues, areas for improvement, and development of a remediation plan.
Audit reports and findings are reviewed regularly by senior leadership and corrective action plans are implemented as needed. AGFS tracks remediation closely and conducts follow-up audits for significant issues. Between audits, AGFS employees meet on-site with supplier managers to discuss open issues and remediation progress.
Suppliers are required to remediate violations of AGFS’s Supplier Code of Conduct. Suppliers must submit a Corrective Action Plan (CAP) providing both a root cause analysis and a description of remedy. AGFS evaluates CAPs in light of the severity level of the violation.
and Stakeholder Engagement
To ensure that our policies and programs incorporate internationally recognized human rights standards, we conduct formal benchmarking with industry and multilateral groups to design, operate, and continually improve our risk assessment and audit program.
AGFS aligns with industry associations to collaborate on key issues and leverages their standardized assessments.
Suppliers manufacturing AGFS private label products are assessed for compliance with AGFS’s Supplier Code of Conduct before AGFS begins ordering products, and we expect all of our suppliers and service providers to meet the standards in our Supplier Code of Conduct as a condition of doing business with us. These facilities must demonstrate the absence of any issue that has caused or is likely to cause immediate harm to workers or communities, or demonstrates egregious unethical behavior, including the use of forced or indentured labor, or human trafficking. In the event an issue that has caused or is likely to cause severe harm to workers is identified prior to beginning a relationship with AGFS, the issue must be resolved before, and as a condition of, initial production and to qualify for continued production with AGFS. AGFS’s sourcing teams have each taken on Social Responsibility goals to monitor for these conditions at an executive leadership level; performance against these goals is regularly reported to leadership.
The Social Responsibility team consults with AGFS business teams on new sourcing geographies and sourcing teams are responsible for reviewing supplier performance before moving to production.
and Capacity Building
We offer suppliers training to help understand AGFS requirements before audits, effectively navigate the Corrective Action Plan (CAP) process, and design and implement sustainable management systems after an audit. We have dedicated teams that work directly with suppliers and service providers in major geographies. We offer on-site and remote training to support continuous improvement. Suppliers are also encouraged to participate in external training programs, such as industry association tutorials related to recognizing and preventing forced labor and implementing management systems. We are continuously exploring ways to use AGFS’s expertise to expand this support.
Employees of AGFS take mandatory compliance training courses on the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, Anti-Bribery Compliance, and Workplace Harassment. Additionally, the AGFS Legal Department has developed and maintains reporting guidelines for employees who wish to report violations of the Business Code of Conduct and Ethics. These guidelines include information on making reports to the Legal Department and to an independent third party. This year, AGFS launched training at our fulfilment operations in the UK on identifying and reporting suspected instances of modern slavery.
