9 Dealing with Customs

9.1 In order to provide the Service to you, we will engage with Jamaica Customs Agency and various other external authorities ("Customs") in order to obtain custom clearance for your package. Customs will require unrestricted access to inspect your package as deemed necessary to safeguard Jamaica's border and overall security coverage. By using our Service, you authorise Customs to inspect your package and if necessary, to detain, confiscate, or destroy packages that pose a threat to Jamaica's national security. In such cases, you will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Company from any demands, claims, damages, liabilities, expenses or harms, including attorney's fees, arising in connection with inspecting, detaining, confiscating, storing, and destroying such packages. We will promptly notify you upon learning of a package being detained, confiscated, or destroyed. You will indemnify, and hold harmless the Company and our respective officers, directors, employees, and agents from any demands, claims, damages, liabilities, expenses, or harms, including attorney's fees, arising in connection with errors or acts of omissions on Customs declarations. Moreover, you will indemnify, and hold harmless the Company for any errors made or acts of omissions made by Customs in respect to valuation of packages.
9.2 You hereby authorise us, including our subsidiaries, affiliates, and agents, to act as your agent for the purpose of accepting, transporting, importing, and delivering your package including, but not limited to, making Customs declarations based on information provided by you or found within the package, and accepting valuations on your behalf.
9.3 You will be notified when we receive your package in our warehouse in the United States of America. Upon receipt of such notification, you are to provide to us a copy of your invoice for the goods contained in your package and any other documentation that we request for the purpose of facilitating Customs clearance and any other government requirements. We will store your goods in our warehouse for up to 30 days, at no additional charge. However, if your goods remain in the warehouse after 30 days (otherwise than due to our own error), storage fees will be applied to your account. If after 90 days of the shipment arriving at our warehouse in the United States of America (or as otherwise communicated to you), we have not received a copy of the invoice and any other documentation required to facilitate Customs clearance of your package, we reserve the right to dispose of those goods in any manner that we deem appropriate, including but not limited to, returning to sender or selling to third parties, with no obligation to report or account to you.
