I. TERMS OF SERVICE
  1. MyUS will provide Member with a suite number at the MyUS facility located in the United States at which Member can have mail and/or merchandise delivered prior to export.
    1. MyUS' services consist of acting as an agent of Member for consolidation and export purposes by receiving Member's merchandise, which will be sorted, packed, and consolidated. At Member's direction, MyUS arranges for export to the Member's specified local address by a service provider, which acts as the freight forwarder and/or carrier for the shipment. MyUS does not act as an indirect air carrier of property, but rather acts as an agent of the shipper (i.e., Members). All packages received by MyUS will be opened by representatives of the company. Members are responsible for all import obligations in the country to which all mail (for a Premium+Mail Member only) and packages will be sent. Members also authorize MyUS as its agent to authorize freight forwarder and/or carriers to conduct customs clearance and entry and to certify freight forwarder and/or carriers as the consignee solely for the purpose of designating a customs broker to perform customs clearance and entry.
    2. Members accept that freight forwarders and/or carriers reserve the right to open and/or inspect every shipment tendered to forwarders and/or carriers on behalf of a Member.
  2. For Premium+Mail Members, MyUS will also receive Member's mail (i.e., letters, catalogs, and newspapers), however, MyUS cannot hold or store mail that will not fit into a 4 inch-tall mailbox. MyUS will notify Member via e-mail once his/her mailbox is full, and Member will have five (5) days to either (a) request shipment of the mail or (b) request that MyUS discard the mail. If no reply is received from the Member, it is deemed that Member is directing MyUS to send the mail to Member's address on record through a freight forwarder or carrier. Any charges generated directly from this activity, including taxes, customs duties, and service charges (including any charges that may be established in the future) will be the sole responsibility of Member in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
  3. Member authorizes MyUS to charge his/her payment method for all services and/or account activity with MyUS. Such charges may include but are not limited to membership dues, shipping and handling charges, customs duties, return/reroute fees, storage charges, late charges, and any optional services. Failure to provide payment for services rendered at the time of service may result in late charges, stop shipment charges, suspension of service, cancellation of membership, and involuntary return or the discarding of any remaining merchandise.
  4. If a Member's payment method is by credit card, and if such Member has an outstanding invoice or invoices, Member authorizes MyUS to charge his/her credit card for the aggregate amount of such outstanding invoice or invoices in one or more credit card transactions. By way of example, if a Member has an outstanding invoice(s) of $3,000 in the aggregate, the Company may either charge Member's credit card (i) one time for $3,000, (ii) three times for $1,000 each, or (iii) any other combination that in the aggregate equals $3,000.
  5. Shipping costs are based on the weight and dimensions of Member's shipments. Shipping costs will be charged according to the actual weight or dimensional weight, whichever is greater.
  6. Member may receive an account credit in Member's MyUS account issued by the MyUS Customer Service Team. Account credits may only be redeemed towards eligible services purchased under Member's MyUS account. Member will have a period of twelve (12) months from the date the account credit is received in Member's MyUS account to use the account credit. In the event Member does not use the account credit in the twelve (12) month period, the account credit will be automatically forfeited by Member upon expiration of the twelve (12) month period. Account credit is not redeemable for cash and cannot be transferred to any other Member account or third party. MyUS reserves the right to apply Member's account credit towards Member's delinquent account charges.
  7. MyUS will allow active Premium and Premium+Mail Members to store their merchandise for up to thirty (30) days at no charge. MyUS will allow active Basic Members to store their merchandise for up to five (5) days at no charge. After thirty (30) days for Premium and Premium+Mail Members, or after five (5) days for Basic Members, Member agrees to pay storage charges per box per day, consistent with MyUS' current schedule of fees. All Members, regardless of membership type, agree to ship their merchandise within sixty (60) days of merchandise arriving to their MyUS suite.
    1. Where merchandise remains in a Member's suite for more than sixty (60) days (e.g., 61 days or greater), Member authorizes and directs MyUS, at MyUS' discretion, to ship such merchandise to Member's current shipping address. Where a Member owes money on their MyUS account or Member's payment method will not process appropriately, Member's merchandise will remain on hold, accruing storage, and Member authorizes and directs MyUS, at MyUS' discretion, to retry payment processing one (1) calendar week later, on day 67. If that attempt is not successful, Member's merchandise will remain on hold, accruing storage, and Member authorizes and directs MyUS to retry payment processing one (1) calendar week later, on day 74. If the third attempt to process payment is not successful, Member acknowledges and agrees that the merchandise is no longer considered shippable nor storable and will be forfeited by Member to MyUS in order to be sold, destroyed, or otherwise disposed of in a legal and environmentally compliant manner. MyUS reserves the right to amend this policy in practice as appropriate and necessary to MyUS' business operations.
  8. Prohibited or restricted merchandise is not storable and, at the discretion of MyUS, will be rejected, forfeited (and sold), destroyed, or provided to government officials.
  9. Claims for lost or damaged merchandise must be filed within the published time limits of the particular carrier. Claims are considered filed when a fully completed claim form, photograph(s), and supporting documentation, including receipts, are received by MyUS. Claims are reviewed individually and the review process will take a minimum of eight (8) weeks. Specific commodities, including televisions, computers, electronics, jewelry, figurines, furniture and lighting have limits of liability in case of loss or damage regardless of the declared value or enhanced liability protection. Any liability for damage or loss caused after delivery to MyUS is limited to the lesser of (i) the declared value, (ii) proof of purchase price, or (iii) the specific commodity liability limit. MyUS does not and will not assume liability for damage or loss to any merchandise caused before delivery to MyUS or by prepackage by manufacturer. Failure to file a completed claim within the carrier time limit will invalidate the claim.
  10. In addition to MyUS' standard limitation of liability above, Members may purchase enhanced liability protection against risk of physical shipment loss or damage. A fee of US $2.99 will be applied for every US $100 of value. The enhanced liability is subject to the terms and conditions of the particular carrier's airway bill(s). All claims are reviewed individually, and any claim payment will be based on the declared value.
  11. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OF THE FOREGOING, THE MAXIMUM ENHANCED LIABILITY VALUE ON ANY SHIPMENT ACCEPTED BY MYUS IS TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS (US$10,000.00) AND IN NO EVENT WILL THE LIABILITY OF MYUS EXCEED THAT AMOUNT.

  15. If a Member's account charges become delinquent for more than thirty (30) days, MyUS may exercise, in addition to all other rights and remedies granted to it in these Terms and Conditions and in any other instrument or agreement securing, evidencing or relating to any Secured Obligation, all rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code or any other applicable law.
  16. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, MyUS may, without demand of performance or other demand, presentment, protest, advertisement or notice of any kind (except any notice required by law referred to below) to or upon a Member or any other person (all and each of which demands, defenses, advertisements and notices are hereby waived to the extent permitted by law), during the continuance of any account delinquency (personally or through its agents or attorneys), (a) collect, receive, appropriate and realize upon any such parcels and (b) sell, assign, convey, transfer, grant option or options to purchase and deliver any such packages, in one or more parcels at public or private sale or sales, at any exchange, broker's board or office of MyUS or elsewhere upon such terms and conditions as it may deem advisable and at such prices as it may deem best, for cash or on credit or for future delivery without assumption of any credit risk, in each case, subject to applicable non-waivable laws.
