Sanctions Policy

Amazic provides a direct connection between buyers and sellers around the world. When you use Amazic’s services (we’ll refer to Amazic, Amazic MARKETPLACE and other services as our “Services”), you are responsible for complying with this policy, regardless of your location.

This policy is a part of our Terms of Use. By using any of our Services, you agree to this policy and our Terms of Use.

As a global company based in The Netherlands with operations in other countries, Amazic must comply with economic sanctions and trade restrictions, including those implemented by the European External Action Service (EEAS) of the EU. This means that Amazic or anyone using our Services can't take part in transactions that involve designated people, places, or items that originate from those places, as determined by agencies like EEAS.

This policy applies to anyone that uses our Services, regardless of their location. It is up to you to familiarise yourself with these restrictions.

In order to protect our community and marketplace, Amazic takes steps to ensure compliance with sanctions programmes. For example, Amazic prohibits members from using their accounts while in certain geographic locations. If we have reason to believe you are operating your account from a sanctioned location, such as any of the places listed by the EEAS, or are otherwise in violation of any economic sanction or trade restriction, we may suspend or terminate your use of our Services. Members are generally not permitted to list, buy, or sell items that originate from sanctioned areas. This includes items that pre-date sanctions, since we have no way to verify when they were actually removed from the restricted location. Amazic reserves the right to request that sellers provide additional information, disclose an item's country of origin in a listing, or take other steps to meet compliance obligations. We may disable listings or cancel transactions that present a risk of violating this policy.

In addition to complying with EEAS and applicable local laws, Amazic members should be aware that other countries may have their own trade restrictions and that certain items may not be allowed for export or import under international laws. You should consult the laws of any jurisdiction when a transaction involves international parties.

Finally, Amazic members should be aware that third-party payment processors, such as PayPal, may independently monitor transactions for sanctions compliance and may block transactions as part of their own compliance programmes. Amazic has no authority or control over the independent decision-making of these providers.

The economic sanctions and trade restrictions that apply to your use of the Services are subject to change, so members should check sanctions resources regularly. For legal advice, please consult a qualified professional.
