At the Member’s direction, TheUKBuyer.com arranges for export to the Member’s specified local address using a freight forwarder for the shipment. TheUKBuyer.com does not act as the air carrier of products, but rather acts as an agent of the Shipper/Member. All packages received by TheUKBuyer.com will be opened by representatives of the company. Members are responsible for all import obligations in the country to which all products and packages will be sent. Members also authorize TheUKBuyer.com 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.

TheUKBuyer.com will notify the Member via e-mail once his/her parcel box is full, and the Member will have 5 days to either (a) request shipment of the product or (b) request that TheUKBuyer.com discard the product. If no reply is received from the Member,

TheUKBuyer.com, in accordance with these terms, understands that the Member is directing TheUKBuyer.com to send the product to the Member’s address on record through an unaffiliated 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 responsibility of the Member.
