Fulfillment Bridge hereby represents and warrants to Company that:
Company hereby agrees that at no time during the period that Products are held by Fulfillment Bridge as Inventory in the Warehouse will Fulfillment Bridge hold title, or any other rights of ownership in the Inventory.

Company can choose not to insure its inventory. In this event, Fulfillment Bridge will, under no circumstances, be liable for any loss or damage to the inventory stored at Fulfillment Bridge facilities. These events include, but are not limited to, theft, misuse, fire, natural disaster or any other event, not directly caused by Fulfillment Bridge.
In order to create an account with Fulfillment Bridge, Company will provide Fulfillment Bridge with identifying information, a password, company information and information about the Products (“Registration Information”).

Subject to Company’s compliance with this Agreement, Fulfillment Bridge shall perform the Services described in this Agreement as selected and authorized by Company in the Account, and described on Exhibit A attached hereto. Company may order Services through the Account (“Fulfillment Bridge Services Orders”). All Fulfillment Bridge Services Orders are deemed incorporated into, and governed by, this Agreement. By using the Services, Company acknowledges and agrees that Fulfillment Bridge is a broker of third-party warehouse and shipping services; accepting shipments from, and making shipments to, third parties. Fulfillment Bridge is an independent contractor for all purposes, and only acts as the agent of Company with respect to Fulfillment Bridge’s custody of the Products in its Inventory
Any invoices Fulfillment Bridge sends to Company in accordance with Section 5 of this Agreement shall be based on any balance accrued in the Company’s Account. “3rd Party Fees” are the fees for postage, shipping and any third-party fees (including, but not limited to carrier fees, shipping fees, rates of duty, international brokerage charges, freight charges, insurance premiums or other charges given during Company’s use of Services) ordered through the Account and any special or additional fees assessed against the Account as permitted in this Agreement. The 3rd party fees for Services are billed during the month in which the Services are performed, but such 3rd Party Fees are subject to change due to circumstances beyond Fulfillment Bridge’s control. All account balance need to be pre-paid, unless otherwise specified in exhibit A. Company agrees and acknowledges that should Company change Account billing plans during or at the end of any month, the previous pricing plan may no longer be available. All other fees for the Services listed on Exhibit A to this Agreement, including Pick & Pack, Storage, Special Requests, Hourly Rates, etc., will be billed on the 1st day of the month following the conclusion of the month for which such Services were provided, or an Account Balance has accrued.
Quotes for 3rd party fees are for informational purposes only and are subject to change without Notice and shall not under any circumstances be binding upon Fulfillment Bridge. Quotations accepted through Fulfillment Bridge’s online interface are estimates based on the information available at the time made. The final rates and service fees may vary based upon the shipment actually tendered, the work actually performed, or a number of factors such as carrier shipping prices, the actual characteristics of the Products, the delivery location, among other variations occurring in the ordinary course of business.
Fulfillment Bridge reserves the right to adjust its pricing for the Services in response to currency fluctuations, including but not limited to, currency conversion rate changes, conversion fee changes, and/or discount rate changes. All dollar amounts stated in this Agreement will be in US dollars unless otherwise specified.
Should Company disagree with any Usage Fees (other than carrier or third-party fees) invoiced or charged against the Account, Company must submit written notice to Fulfillment Bridge within 30 days of the fee being charged (“Dispute Period”). Fulfillment Bridge will not review customer requests for Usage Fee adjustments that are received after the Dispute Period.
Fulfillment Bridge shall have a priority security interest in all Products in Inventory and on the proceeds thereof to secure the payment of all Usage Fees and 3rd Party Fees as well as any reasonable expenses incurred by Fulfillment Bridge for the preservation of the Inventory or its sale. In connection therewith, Company hereby (a) grants to Fulfillment Bridge a first priority security interest in all Inventory and the proceeds thereof to secure the payment of the User Fees and fees for Services, (b) consents to and grants to Fulfillment Bridge the right to deliver and file any documentation required under applicable laws and regulations to perfect such security interest, and (c) irrevocably waives any requirements for its signature on any document filed by Fulfillment Bridge under this Section 8.7.
If Fulfillment Bridge becomes aware of, or is notified of, a dispute relating to the Account Balance, then Fulfillment Bridge will promptly review the dispute. Within 5 days after the resolution of the dispute, Fulfillment Bridge will forward a bill for outstanding amounts due, or will credit the Account Balance accordingly, if appropriate.
If Company’s Usage Fees or 3rd Party Fees remain unpaid for a period greater than 30 days, then Fulfillment Bridge reserves the right, at its sole discretion to reclassify Company’s Account as an “Abandoned Account.” Additionally, any Account that remains unpaid for greater than 60 days will automatically be deemed an Abandoned Account. Upon an Account becoming an Abandoned Account, Company immediately forfeits all rights of ownership of such Company’s Inventory. Inventory will become immediately and irrevocably unavailable to Company, and liquidation proceedings would begin. Company agrees the Inventory would be free and clear of liability, and that Company assumes any liability therefore. Company has no rights to any liquidation proceeds arising from an Abandoned Account and would remain liable for any pending Usage Fees and 3rd Party Fees above and beyond the liquidation proceeds.
Upon termination of this Agreement, the Account will be inaccessible to Company, and all activity will be suspended. Fulfillment Bridge reserves the right to place an Account on hold for a number reasons, including but not limited to the following: (a) Account Balance remaining unpaid within 30 days of receipt of invoice; (b) suspicious activity on or through the Account; (c) if anyone using the Account uses abusive language or otherwise threatens Fulfillment Bridge or its staff; (d) to allow time to resolve or investigate a third party complaint of a violation of this Agreement; (e) to allow time for investigation or resolution of an unauthorized transaction, customer complaint, dispute or accusation; and (f) to allow time for Fulfillment Bridge to comply with any extraordinary support requests.
Fulfillment Bridge reserves the right to terminate an Account for any reason upon 30 days’ Notice (“Termination Notice Period”). Company may have full or limited use of the Account during the Termination Notice Period, subject to Fulfillment Bridge’s discretion. Any Product inventory that remains in Fulfillment Bridge’s inventory at the expiration of the Termination Notice Period will be shipped to Company at the address on file and, if address is not on file, the billing address on Company’s credit card, at Company’s expense. If no address is available or no balance is available to pay for shipment back to the Company, Fulfillment Bridge will liquidate the Product inventory in accordance with an Abandoned Account.
If Company is in breach of any of the terms of this Agreement, Fulfillment Bridge may close, put on hold, or limit access to the Account or the Services. Without limiting any of the remedies under law or equity, Fulfillment Bridge may also take any actions available, including, without limitation, any of the following : (a) contact End-Users who have received Products, contact Company’s bank or credit card issuer, and warn other users, law enforcement, or impacted third parties of Company’s actions; (b) refuse to provide the Services in the future; (c) hold Account funds and Inventory for up to 180 days if reasonably needed to protect against the risk of liability; and (d) take any available legal action.
Company may close the Account for any reason, upon giving Fulfillment Bridge 30 day’s prior written Notice. Merchandise will be returned at a rate of $0.5 / item.
