These Amazon Business Accounts Terms & Conditions (the "Agreement") are between Amazon.com Services LLC (“Amazon,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) and the entity registering for a Business Account (“Customer”, “you” or “your”).
7.1. Customer Information. We require you to provide information about you and your Users to access and use Amazon Business, and you may need to provide supplemental information to use or purchase some Amazon Business products or services. You will ensure that all information that you provide to us is at all times accurate and complete. We may share information you provide (for example, your organization’s name, addresses, Taxpayer Identification Number) with others in your organization and third parties to confirm the accuracy of such information and your eligibility to use Amazon Business or certain services (for example, to confirm you hold a valid license, certification, or credential where required). To enable us to improve our services, including by making available additional product selection or business pricing, we may share specific order information about the products or services you purchase through your Business Account with the suppliers who provide such products or services. For example, for certain transactions, Amazon Business may share your organization’s name or credentials, shipping address, shipment date, ASIN/SKU, quantity or other relevant information.
7.2. Privacy. Except as disclosed in this Agreement, our use of your information is governed by the terms of the Amazon.com Privacy Notice. Please review the Privacy Notice to understand our practices with respect to your information. Please note that all information about Users and User Accounts associated with a Business Account may be shared with your organization.
7.3. Confidentiality. In connection with your use of Amazon Business, we may share with you information which is identified as confidential or that should reasonably be considered confidential (“Confidential Information”). You will take all reasonable measures to avoid disclosure, dissemination or unauthorized use of Confidential Information, including, at a minimum, those measures you take to protect your own confidential information of a similar nature. You may use Confidential Information only in connection with your use of Amazon Business. You will not disclose Confidential Information during the term of this Agreement or at any time during the 5-year period following the termination of the Agreement, unless required by law. This applies to all Confidential Information in your possession, regardless of when or where you receive it.
8.1. Governing Law. The laws of the State of Washington, without reference to conflict of law rules, as well as the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law, govern the Agreement and any dispute that might arise between you and us that pertains to Amazon Business or this Agreement. The United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to the Agreement.
8.2. Disputes. Any dispute or claim relating in any way to Amazon Business or this Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent Corporation Service Company, 300 Deschutes Way SW, Suite 304, Tumwater, WA 98501. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules (available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879). An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages). You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or at a mutually agreed location. We and you 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 each waive any right to a jury trial. We and you both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
8.3. Public Sector Entities. If you are a public sector entity and precluded by law from agreeing to any of the provisions of Section 8 as set forth above, then any disputes with you will be governed by the substantive laws of the sovereign under whose laws you were formed and the venue for any such dispute will be the venue required by the laws of such sovereign. Similarly, if the laws of such sovereign would result in other provisions in this Agreement being deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable against you, those provisions will not apply to you and will be deemed severable from this Agreement. All other provisions in the Agreement remain in full force and effect.
14.1. Use of the Amazon Software. You may use Amazon Software solely for purposes of enabling you to use Amazon Business, as permitted by the Agreement. You may not incorporate any portion of the Amazon Software into other programs or compile any portion of it in combination with other programs, or otherwise reproduce, duplicate, copy (except to exercise rights granted in this section), modify, exploit, create derivative works of, distribute, sell, resell, assign any rights to, or license the Amazon Software in whole or in part (including any features of Amazon Business). All software used in Amazon Business is the property of Amazon or its software suppliers and is protected by U.S. and international copyright Laws. You may not make any derivative use of Amazon Business without the express written consent of Amazon.
14.3. No Reverse Engineering. You may not reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble, tamper with, or bypass any security associated with the Amazon Software, whether in whole or in part.
14.4. Updates. We may offer automatic or manual updates to the Amazon Software at any time and without notice to you.
14.5. Government End Users. If you are a U.S. Government end user, we are licensing the Amazon Software to you as a "Commercial Off-the-Shelf Item" as that term is defined in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (see 48 C.F.R. § 2.101), and the rights we grant you to the Amazon Software are the same as the rights we grant to all others under this Agreement.
14.6. Reserved Rights, Termination. All rights not expressly granted to you in the Agreement are reserved and retained by Amazon or its licensors, suppliers, publishers, rightsholders, or other content providers. The licenses granted by Amazon terminate if you do not comply with the Agreement.
14.7. Conflicts. In the event of any conflict between the Agreement and any other Amazon or third-party terms applicable to any portion of Amazon Software, such as open-source license terms or specific product feature restrictions that are conveyed to you in the feature experience, such other terms will control as to that portion of the Amazon Software and to the extent of the conflict.
15.1. Suggestions. If you make any suggestions about Amazon Business or the features (including any related technology), we will be free to use, disclose, reproduce, modify, license, transfer and otherwise distribute, and exploit any of the foregoing information or materials in any manner.
15.2. Assignment. Except in connection with a reorganization, merger, sale, or transfer of substantially all of your assets (in which cases you must promptly provide written notice following assignment), you may not assign the Agreement without our prior written consent. Subject to that restriction, the Agreement will be binding on, inure to, and be enforceable against the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
15.3. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from this Agreement and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
15.4. Waiver. Our failure to enforce your strict performance of any provisions of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce such provisions or any other provision of this Agreement subsequently.
15.5. Conflicts. In the event of any conflict between the Agreement and the Policies, the Agreement will prevail. In the event of any conflict between the Agreement and the Feature Terms, the applicable Feature Terms will control.
15.6. Construction. The word "including" will be interpreted without limitation when used in this Agreement.
15.7. Notices. You consent to receive communications from us electronically, including through e-mails, text messages, in-app push notices, notices and messages posted on Amazon Business or in your Message Center and other communications made available to you on a desktop or mobile device. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. You may retain copies of all of these communications for your records. We may also send you notices at the address provided when registering your Business Account, which you agree is a proper and valid address for any legal or contractual purpose. If you are sending Amazon a legal or contractual notice, you must comply with our notice procedures available here.
