Last updated: 15/09/2022

GLOBAL-E NL B.V. (a Dutch company referred to as “Global-e”, “we”, "our" or "us"), having its registered office at Krijn Taconiskade 430 1087 HW Amsterdam The Netherlands is the sales facilitation and fulfilment partner of SOLMATE LTD., (a Bulgarian company, having its seat and registered office in Sofia, Bulgaria, 7 Sheinovo Str., referred to as “BY FAR”) being the retailer and owner of the BY FAR brand and also operating the e-commerce website (“Website”), where the products were made available to you for purchase through the Website and delivery to you ("Merchandise"). BY FAR has an agreement with Global-e allowing Global-e to act, as the merchant of record, in Global-e’s own name and on the behalf of BY FAR.

By visiting the checkout (or similar) facility, operated by Global-e and residing on the Website (“Checkout”), placing an order through the Website and the Checkout (each an “Order”), you confirm that you have read, understood and agree to these Terms of Sale and the Privacy Notice in their entirety and you agree to be bound by them. If you do not agree to these Terms, please do not order any Merchandise or service through the Website and the Checkout. These Terms of Sale define your legal relationship with Global-e regarding the Checkout and the placement of Orders for purchase of Merchandise. 

Consumer” in these Terms of  Sale means an individual who browses and/or makes a purchase of Merchandise through the Website and is acting for purposes which are wholly outside that individual’s trade, business craft or profession.

If you are in the United Kingdom, you can get advice about your legal rights from your local Trading Standards office or Citizens' Advice Bureau. For detailed information please visit www.adviceguide.org.uk.

Residents of the European Union may visit http://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/consumers/index_en.htm for additional information.

If a non-English language version of these Terms of Sale was posted or provided, you agree that the translation is provided for convenience only and that the English language version will govern your uses of the Website and/or the Checkout.

1. GENERAL

We are happy that you found what you were looking for. Now that you have decided to purchase those items, any such purchases on the Website and any other associated mobile or digital applications shall be made through the Global-e Checkout facility, and from, Global-e as the seller.

You buy the Merchandise in your local currency and at a price that normally and if available for pre-payment includes any applicable sales taxes (such as Value Added Tax), and, if available for pre-payment, any import duties, tariffs and similar fees that may be imposed by the delivery destination ("Import Charges"). International delivery costs and fees (“Delivery Costs") may apply. Our guaranteed landed cost shipping service allows you to prepay all taxes and duties (as applicable) and there will be no additional charges when you receive your package. Without advanced notice and from time to time and in select territories, Delivery Costs and/or Import Charges could be covered, partially or fully. The Website will provide details about such offers before completing and placing the Order.

Orders placed via the Checkout are solely reserved for Consumers, as defined by law and case law precedent, acting exclusively on their own behalf. Any Order which is obviously not a retail sale and, more generally, any Order that is fraudulent or presumed as such, will not be accepted. The volume of a given article delivered to a single consumer or postal address could be limited or restricted at any time.  Prior to placing an Order, you represent and warrant that the purchase of the Merchandise has no direct link to commercial activity of any kind and is strictly for personal use only.

You are advised that the characteristics of the Merchandise you are buying, as well as the price, Delivery Costs and (if available for pre-payment) Import Charges, shall be those displayed to you by Global-e at the Checkout. Please make sure you review your Checkout page so that you can identify and correct any input errors.  All information regarding the Merchandise, including the product description and price, are subject to these Terms of Sale and the Terms of Service.

 

2. PERSONAL DATA

Global-e and BY FAR have entered into collaboration to be able to offer the Merchandise in your destination or region. Both parties process personal data of the customers as data controllers in their own rights. As two separate data controllers neither Global-e nor BY FAR control the processing of your personal data by the other party.

You can read more about the processing of your personal data by Global-e Privacy Policy available here, and the BY FAR Privacy Policy available here .The privacy policies, BY FAR’s Cookie Policy, and additional provisions in these Terms govern the use of your personal data and use of cookies.

We will also process your personal data to be able to ship the Merchandise ordered by you, to facilitate any Merchandise returns and to be able to provide customer service for you.  We may also use your personal data for marketing purposes in accordance with applicable laws and subject to your consent if such is needed.

 

3. BROWSING, CHECKOUT AND ACCEPTANCE OF ORDERS

You place the Order for selected Merchandise by using the Checkout ordering process. This involves selecting the Merchandise, placing it in the shopping cart/basket and transmitting the Order by clicking on the “PAY AND PLACE ORDER” button (or similar button) through the Checkout. This process permits you to check and amend any errors before making an Order by using the “back” button.

To place an Order, you must be at least at the age legally required under local law where you are resident to bind yourself legally to these Terms of Sale.  By doing so, you confirm that you meet this requirement.

Once you have placed your Order, it will be acknowledged via an email which will contain the relevant details of your Order. Please note, this does not constitute our acceptance of your Order to buy the Merchandise – it only constitutes an acknowledgement of your Order. Your Order is not accepted (and therefore no commitment is made to provide you with the Merchandise), and no contract for the sale of such Merchandise shall come into effect, until your Order is specifically accepted and a confirmation email is sent to you ("Order Confirmation").

If the payment method you selected at Checkout supports an authorization mechanism (e.g., most credit/debit cards), then when you place your Order the applicable amount will only be authorized. You will be charged only after the Merchandise has been dispatched to you, unless the Order is a ‘pre-order’ or a similar type of order, in which case the charge could be made even before the Merchandise has been dispatched, depending on the particulars of the pre-ordered Merchandise. If the payment method you selected does not support authorization mechanism, the charge will be immediate upon placing the Order (or such other timing set by that specific payment method you used, if applicable). Please note that you will be charged the full Order amount even if the Order is dispatched in parts. Where Paypal/PayPal Express is offered as a payment method, the full amount of your purchase may be taken immediately following the placement of your Order. When paying with Apple Pay (for U.S. customers only), confirm your order details, shipping information, and payment method and follow the steps instructed by Apple.  All use of Apply Pay is further subject to terms and conditions between you and Apple, Inc.  Pre-Payment shall not affect your legal rights under these Terms (including for example any right of refund).  If shipping, delivery or fulfilment obligations cannot be performed (subject to these Terms), you will be notified via email and a refund of the pre-payment will be made without delay.

We take appropriate efforts to process and fulfill any Order as quickly as possible in accordance with our Shipping and Returns Policy.  However, your Order may be declined, upon notice to you if: (a) the Merchandise is unavailable (in which case, if the payment was processed, Global-e will refund you in accordance with these Terms); or (b) Global-e is unable to verify the payment information you provided. Delivery times may vary and shipping delays may occur, including due to COVID-19.

Global-e may, if it suspects someone's identity, address, email address and/or payment information is being used fraudulently or in an unauthorized manner, also require additional verifications or information before accepting any Order.

Global-e is under a legal duty to supply Merchandise that is in conformity with these Terms.  Furthermore, nothing in these Terms affects a consumer’s legal rights in relation to Merchandise that is not in conformity with the contract, whether because they are faulty, not as described or otherwise.

You are advised that there may be minor differences between the actual Merchandise and the way that it appears on the Website, e.g., in relation to appearance / color / texture / finish. The labelling or packaging of the Merchandise may differ from the images of these which you see on the Website.

Quantity limits may apply in relation to Orders for certain products. Orders exceeding a certain number of authorized products could be refused at any moment in time, without prior notice.

 

4. ACCURACY OF BILLING AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION

We reserve the right to refuse any Order you place with us.  We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order.  These restrictions may include Orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address.  In the event that we make a change to or cancel an Order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the Order was made.  We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.

You agree to provide current, complete and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made at our store.  You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address and credit card numbers and expiration dates, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed.  All information provided by you during a transaction will be stored and processed according to our Privacy Policy.

For more detail, please review our.Returns Policy.

 

5. EXCHANGE RATE

Exchange rates may be set and updated regularly, and you acknowledge that such updates may affect Merchandise pricing on the Checkout. You will be charged according to the applicable exchange rate at the time you actually make your Order via the Checkout as displayed on the Checkout.

 

6. TITLE; OWNERSHIP OF AND RISK IN MERCHANDISE; IMPORTER OF RECORD

Title to, and ownership of the Merchandise you order shall pass in accordance with these Terms, in the dispatch country before export (where the contract for the sale of Merchandise is concluded).

The title to and ownership of the Merchandise ordered is passed to you the moment the Merchandise is dispatched to you (provided you have made full payment of the Merchandise price plus delivery charges and any other charges payable under these Terms, as applicable).

Risk of damage or loss to the Merchandise passes to you on delivery to you or to somebody identified by you to carry or take possession of the Merchandise on your behalf.

You will be considered the importer of record of the Merchandise, and Global-e (or someone on its behalf) will only be facilitating the importation on your behalf as your agent. You are responsible for assuring that the product can be lawfully imported to the destination, and you therefore need to comply with all applicable laws, regulations, certifications and rules of the destination into which you import the Merchandise. Please note the standard for using the Merchandise in the destination BEFORE ordering. Merchandise ordered to a territory with different standards cannot be returned for this reason and Global-e accepts no liability for any circumstances which may arise for purchasing an item without the correct standards for your territory.

Please note that documentation such as user manuals, product care and handling instructions and safety warnings may not be in your language; you may not have available manufacturer’s or other service options for the Merchandise or parts thereof; the Merchandise (and accompanying materials) may not be designed in accordance with the standards of the destination to which you order, product regulations, specifications or labelled in accordance with the requirements applicable in the destination or in your or the destination language; if the Merchandise are powered, that may not conform to the destination power parameters such as voltage or other electrical standards (for example you may need to use an adapter to charge your product).

All purchases made on the Website are for personal use and we reserve the right to prohibit individuals form purchasing in bulk or for resale in a commercial manner.

 

7. FULFILMENT, HANDLING AND DELIVERY OF ORDERS

You acknowledge and agree that Global-e or one of its third-party fulfilment services providers acting on its behalf, including BY FAR (each a "Fulfilment Provider") may handle the delivery and fulfilment of your Order, and that Global-e has sole discretion as to the Fulfilment Provider it chooses to use.

Not all Merchandise can be delivered everywhere (due to limitations imposed on the Merchandise or by the destination) but the Checkout will not permit you to submit your Order if the Merchandise cannot be delivered to your specified address.

Delivery will be complete when the Merchandise will be delivered to the address which you specify when ordering (that may include the port of entrance to the destination as specified on the Checkout, in case you have selected not to pre-pay customs duties).

Different parts of your Order may be delivered on different dates. Unless otherwise stated, and subject to applicable laws, delivery dates given on Checkout (or on the webstore) are estimates only. Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Order Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days after the date of the Order Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances (pre-order for example). Delivery timeframes are affected by your delivery address and the delivery method selected. Global-e is unable to specify an exact delivery date and time.

Global-e has no liability for any losses arising from delay in delivery to the extent that this is due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control and where Global-e could not have taken reasonable steps to deal with the delay. For example, delays resulting from customs clearance procedures or other actions of relevant authorities are generally outside Global-e control, or delays resulting directly from your actions or omissions.

If you receive notification of an unsuccessful attempted delivery, it is your responsibility to use the details provided to contact the delivery company to arrange re-delivery. If you have selected a delivery method that does not require a delivery to be signed for and nobody is available to receive the Merchandise, we reserve the right to leave them at the doorstep, hall or reception as available.

In cases when your parcel is missing, or there are items missing from a delivered order, or item is delivered damaged, or delivery is made to a wrong address, please contact our Customer Care team for assistance. In case of damaged or missing items in the received parcel, please make sure to take photos as an evidence of the issue. We will also need a photo of the packaging so that we can start an investigation with our fulfillment provider (shipping partner). When contacting us, you will have to provide the photos as well as any relevant order information.

 

8. PAYMENT METHODS

You may pay with the payment methods specified at Checkout. The availability of such payment methods is dependent on your geographical location. When being charged, the descriptor you will see shall include Global-e identified as ‘Global-e’ and will substantially look like this: **Global-e//merchant** or **Global-e//Merchant**.

You acknowledge and agree that: (i) you will be charged by Global-e or one of its third party payment processors ("Payment Processor"), through the payment method you have selected at Checkout for such Order and such other amounts payable under these Terms that may be due in connection with the Order; (ii) you will provide valid and current information about yourself; (iii) Global-e may use the tools, software or services of Payment Processors to process transactions on its behalf; and (iv) you may be charged by a bank or credit/debit card issuer with additional fees (such as foreign transaction fee or cross border fee) or surcharges imposed by your bank or credit/debit card issuer, and those are not Global-e charges or fees, and Global-e has no control over this nor does Global-e have any way to mitigate this, as this is purely up to the relationship and commercial terms between you and your bank or credit/debit card issuer, and Global-e also has no way of knowing in advance whether you will be charged such fees or surcharges, as each bank and credit/debit card issuer has its own policy, and Global-e commitment is to acquire the amount set at Checkout in your local currency.

Depending on your geography, payment may be routed through Global-e Australia Pty Ltd., Global-e’s affiliate.

Payment by Invoice with Klarna: In cooperation with Klarna and in certain jurisdictions only, you may be offered the opportunity to purchase goods using Klarna as a payment method. The terms and conditions which will apply to payment by Invoice with Klarna can be found here, noting that German (not English) is the governing and binding language of such terms and conditions. Eligibility for use of the Klarna invoicing payment method will be determined by Klarna in their sole discretion and Global-e accept no liability in respect of your use of Klarna as a payment method. Where you choose to purchase your goods using payment by invoice with Klarna, you will be sharing your personal data with Klarna and the terms of Klarna privacy policy shall apply to their use of your personal information. Global-e shall have no responsibility for their use of your personal data.

Global-e will process your payment for the Merchandise. Global-e will take reasonable care to keep the details of your Order and payment secure, but (in the absence of material negligence) Global-e cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.

 

9. IMPORT CHARGES

For certain delivery destinations and/or Merchandise, you may be offered the option to pre-pay applicable Import Charges, which will then be calculated and added or included in the final price when you place the Order. In certain cases, the price of the Merchandise may already be inclusive of Import Charges.

In the event that the option to pre-pay applicable Import Charges is available for you and you choose to pre-pay such Import Charges, or if the Import Charges were already included in the price of the Merchandise, your final price will be fully guaranteed, and the actual Import Charges will be paid on your behalf to the applicable authorities, as determined by your delivery destination upon import of your Order.

Global-e may contract with a local licensed customs broker in the destination. Agreement to these Terms of Sale serve as an authorization for the applicable customs broker to act as your agent to: (a) conduct transactions with the local applicable authority, (b) complete, submit and execute related documents on your behalf in connection with the import of Merchandise in your Order, (c) facilitate the payment of applicable Import Charges; and (d) if applicable, return such Merchandise to Global-e or directly to BY FAR (subject to these Terms of Sale).  However, you acknowledge that, in the case of a return of Merchandise, you (and not Global-e or anyone on its behalf) will be fully responsible for claiming back such Import Charges from the applicable tax authority, to the extent possible, and Global-e shall have no responsibility or liability in connection with such claim.

You may decide not to pre-pay the Import Charges at Checkout, or the option to pre-pay Import Charges may not be available for your delivery destination or the Merchandise. In such cases (i.e. where pre-pay doesn’t apply): (a) you are advised that the amount of Import Charges displayed under the pre-pay option on the Checkout may not reflect the actual Import Charges payable by you as determined by your delivery destination’s relevant authority, which may be more or less than such estimate; and (b) you will be fully responsible for paying all applicable Import Charges directly to the relevant authority (and for reclaiming them in the event of a cancellation or return or a return of Merchandise, to the extent permitted in these Terms) as determined by the authorities of the delivery destination, and Global-e shall have no responsibility or liability in connection with the foregoing. Moreover, if you fail to pay Import Charges without reasonable reason causing the liability to fall on us or the carrier, the liability amount of Import Charges may be deducted from any refund or other amounts you may claim.

If you elected not to pre-pay Import Charges, or failed to pay Import Charges, or refused to accept Merchandise not in accordance with a due cancellation procedure under these Terms of Sale, in each case resulting with the Merchandise being returned or need to be returned, then you may be liable for the return Delivery Costs and may not be reimbursed or refunded for Delivery Costs paid by you for making the delivery to you. Global-e may also charge you with additional direct or indirect charges resulting from said failure or refusal. Global-e may, if that is in accordance with these Terms of Sale, reimburse and refund you for the cost of the Merchandise, but not the Import Charges which may or may not be reimbursable by the relevant authority.

 

10. RIGHT TO CANCEL

You may cancel your Order within 12 hours of placing it by notifying Customer Care at customercare@byfar.com. If your order is already dispatched within this period of 12 hours, you will be advised to not accept the delivery and ask the courier to return it. It can take up to 10 (ten) working days for refunds to appear in your account.  All outstanding refunds are transferred via the original payment method.

The “cooling-off” cancellation period will expire after 14 days after the day of delivery.

To exercise the right to cancel,

you must inform Global-e of your decision to cancel your Order by a clear statement made through the help center portal available here (https://www.service.global-e.com). To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.

There is NO right to cancel Orders for goods made to your specifications or which are clearly personalized. There are other types of supply that are not eligible for cancellation such as fragrances, sealed goods such as DVDs or audio devices or goods liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly.

Only the buyer will be entitled to receive a refund of the purchase price. In no event will a person who has received the product as a gift be entitled to receive a refund. If you are a Gift Recipient and wish to return a product, please contact us to discuss your options.

Reimbursement will be made using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless we have expressly agreed otherwise. Once the refund has been made, it can take up to 10 (ten) working days for refunds to appear in your account, or longer period depending on your payment method’s own service terms.
  • Depending on your geography, when payment was routed through Global-e Australia Pty , our affiliate, refund shall be made accordingly.
  • You shall send back the goods or hand them over as per the instructions provided to you through the help center portal (available here https://www.service.global-e.com) when you make your request.

Make sure your items are returned new and unused. When trying on shoes, be mindful not to scratch the soles or mark the shoe box. Try on your shoes on a carpet or similar platform, as the soles are very delicate and can be scratched easily. Returns must also include the dust bag and box, as these are considered part of the product. Place the shoe box inside another box in order to prevent damage during shipping. Items that do not meet the above requirements will not be accepted and will be sent back to you. We reserve the right to inspect your return and to reject any returns if not in proper condition.  We cannot guarantee full refund in case of damaged returns. 

 

12. RETURNS POLICY (ALL CUSTOMERS, EXCLUDING FAULTY AND PERSONALIZED MERCHANDISE)

Our Returns Policy applies to all customers.  The policy does not apply to faulty or personalized Merchandise. It is in addition to, and does not affect, the separate legal right of cancellation which is available only to EEA Consumers in some circumstances as explained above. All returns could be subject to strict quality control by Global-e or BY FAR to ensure that the returned products satisfy these requirements. If the products do not meet such standards, the return could be refused, and the products will be returned to you (at your own cost).

Failure to comply with these Terms of Sale or our Returns Policy could give rise to refusal to accept the returned product and send it back to you, at your own cost. Title and risk to the returned Merchandise will not be taken back or assumed until it physically arrives back to the returns facility.

From time to time, in select territories, the transportation costs of returning the goods may be covered on your behalf (“pre- paid”). Such coverage (or the absence of it), will be indicated clearly on the Website before Checkout.

If your purchase is not exactly what you are looking for, you have 14 days from receiving your order to arrange your return by obtaining the return documentation from the Returns Portal here. Our return process is simple and fuss-free. For more information, please see our Shipping and Returns Policy.

If you have paid Import Charges in connection with your Order (either pre-paid at Checkout or paid upon receipt of the Order directly to the applicable authority), you acknowledge that (a) you must seek reimbursement directly from the applicable authority in your destination, (b) it will be your sole responsibility to claim such Import Charges back from the applicable authority in your destination, and c) Global-e cannot guarantee that such claim will be successful. If you have pre-paid Import Charges, upon your written request Global-e may exert appropriate efforts to assist you in obtaining reimbursement of such Import Charges, and for such purpose you hereby give Global-e a power of attorney to act in your name to try and obtain such reimbursement (however this power of attorney is a guarantee that such reimbursement will be successful).

Make sure your items are returned returned unused, with authentic labels and in original packaging. When trying on shoes, be mindful not to scratch the soles or mark the shoe box. Try on your shoes on a carpet or similar platform, as the soles are very delicate and can be scratched easily. Returns must also include the dust bag and box, as these are considered part of the product. Place the shoe box inside another box in order to prevent damage during shipping. Items that do not meet the above requirements will not be accepted and will be sent back to you.

For perfumes, it is of high importance that the item is sent back to us unsealed, in the original carton box and outer packaging.

All returns are thoroughly examined upon receipt. We will only issue a refund in case the product and its packaging are in a new-like and re-sellable condition. For perfumes, in the occasion where we establish that the product has been unsealed or used after delivery, we will send it back to you and will inform you via email.

Note that purchases made through our website can only be returned in accordance with our return policy. At our LA store we do not accept returns of online purchases.

If you made your purchase through a partnered retail location, then any return will need to be made in accordance with the return/cancellation policy of the relevant retailer and should not be returned directly to us.

13. REPEATED RETURNS

We offer a flexible returns policy to make your online shopping experience even easier.

14. EXCHANGES

Currently, we are unable to offer exchanges on our products. You can simply create a new order for the style you wish to have instead and create your return in the meantime - you will be refunded for the returned item in accordance with the return policy above. If you have any questions, please contact our customer care help desk.

 

15. LIMITED WARRANTY; RETURNS POLICY FOR FAULTY MERCHANDISE

If any Merchandise you order is damaged or faulty when delivered to you or has developed a fault, you may have one or more legal remedies available to you, depending on when you make us aware of the problem, in accordance with your legal rights. If you believe Merchandise was delivered damaged or faulty or has developed a fault, you should inform us or BY FAR at customercare@byfar.com as soon as possible and not later than two months from the moment the defect was discovered, preferably in writing, giving your name, address, order reference, photos of the defect and a short description of the problem. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.

Items that have been damaged due to improper use or by accident, are not considered faulty items.

For Merchandise shipped internationally, please note that the warranty may not be valid in the destination, or you may have only limited warranty valid in the destination. If warranty is valid and not limited and if you reside in the EEA and you purchased your Merchandise in the EEA, the warranty period is two (2) years from the date of purchase. Consumers in some jurisdictions may have legal rights under applicable national legislation governing the sale of consumer goods, including, without limitation, national laws implementing EU directive 99/44. These rights are not affected by this limited warranty.

BY FAR will undertake the professional handling of repair work assigned in relation to products with proven manufacturer defect, including products’ accessories. It is solely subject to BY FAR production experts' discretion to acknowledge if the issue you detected is a manufacturing defect or not. Faulty items that could be repaired are not subject to replacement or reimbursement. The repair process usually takes around 30 business days, however this period might be prolonged depending on the case or during Sales period. It is a priority and BY FAR will undertake its best efforts to complete a repair or replacement without causing significant inconvenience to you.

 

16. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

There are certain liabilities with respect to the Merchandise, your Orders, Checkouts, and processing payments that we cannot exclude under applicable law. In particular, nothing in these Terms of Sale limits our (or as the case may be BY FAR’s) liability for personal injury or death caused by our negligence or our liability for fraud, or for breach of any term implied by applicable consumer rights legislation and which, by law, may not be limited or excluded. You might have certain rights as a consumer, including legal rights relating to faulty product(s). Nothing in these Terms of Sale will affect these legal rights.

Subject to this, in no event will there be any liability for any of your business losses. Any liability, if so exists, shall not exceed the purchase price of the relevant Merchandise and is strictly limited to losses that were reasonably foreseeable. Losses are foreseeable where they could be contemplated by you and us at the time your Order is accepted by us.

Global-e and BY FAR will not be responsible for any loss or damages incurred by unauthorized use of your payment card on the Checkout, and Global-e and BY FAR are not responsible for notifying your card issuer or any law enforcement authority in these instances.

You must give Global-e and BY FAR a reasonable opportunity to remedy any matter for which they are liable before you incur any costs remedying the matter yourself.

Global-e cannot guarantee that the Checkout will be uninterrupted or error-free. Global-e and BY FAR are entitled without notice and without liability to suspend the Website or the Checkout for repair, maintenance, improvement or other technical reason.

Global-e shall not be held liable, if and in so far as it cannot fulfil its obligations as a result of circumstances beyond its reasonable control and where it could not have taken appropriate steps to avoid such effects including third party telecommunication failures.

19. MISCELLANEOUS

Communications will be made electronically by sending email or otherwise posting electronically.

If any provision or provisions of these Terms of Sale shall be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired.

Headings used in these Terms of Sale are for information and not binding.

Any failure by either party to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms does not mean this is a “waiver” (i.e. that it cannot be enforced later). If any part of these Terms is ineffective or unenforceable for any reason, then it will be replaced with a provision which as far as possible achieves the same thing and the rest of these Terms shall continue to apply. We may transfer these Terms to a third party, but this will not affect your rights or obligations. A person who is not a party to these Terms shall have no rights to enforce any term of these Terms except insofar as expressly stated otherwise.

Global-e and BY FAR reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information obtained in connection with the Order, and your use of the Checkout, as Global-e reasonably believes is necessary to: (i) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, subpoena or governmental request, (ii) enforce these Terms of Sale, including to investigate potential violations of them, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, (iv) respond to your support requests, or (v) protect the rights, property or safety of Global-e, BY FAR or the public.

The Checkout may contain links to third party websites or services that are not owned or controlled by Global-e. Global-e is not affiliated with, has no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of, any third-party websites. You: (i) are solely responsible and liable for your use of and linking to third-party websites and any content that you may send or post to a third-party website; and (ii) expressly release Global-e from any and all liability arising from your use of any third-party website. Accordingly, you are encouraged to read the terms and conditions and privacy policy of each third-party website that you may choose to visit.

Global-e reserves the right to modify these Terms at any time by posting the changes on the checkout and on the Website. Such change will take effect ten (10) days following the posting of the revised Terms, and your use of the Checkout after we have posted such changes means that you agree to be bound by the Terms as modified. However, no such change will affect any Order that you have already placed.

These Terms constitute the entire agreement with respect to the subject matter of any Order. The contract in respect of any Orders may be officially concluded in the English language only and that no public filing requirements apply.
