Terms and Conditions for Amazon Business Accounts
These terms and conditions ("Terms") govern your access to and use of a set of features, services, and functionality on the Business to Business marketplace section of Amazon.in for registered business customers to purchase products for business purposes ("Amazon Business"). These Terms constitute an agreement between Amazon Seller Services Private Limited and/or its affiliates ("Amazon," "we," "us," or "our") and the entity you represent ("you"). Please note that your use of Amazon Business is also governed by the Conditions of Use and the Amazon.in Privacy Notice, as well as all other applicable terms, conditions, policies, limitations, and requirements on the Amazon.in website, all of which (as changed over time) are incorporated into these Terms. Capitalized terms have the meanings given to them in these Terms or the Conditions of Use.
An organization has a Business Account with Amazon once an individual associated with the organization registers the business and creates the first business user account associated with that organization. As and when we launch this functionality, individual(s) who have created the business user account can invite others to be part of the organization's Business Account. Each additional user that purchases or otherwise acts on behalf of the business and joins the organization's Business Account must create a new business user account that is part of and associated with the organization's Business Account. Business Accounts and business user accounts are intended for businesses and business-related organizations and may be used solely for business purposes. To create a business user account, users must use a valid email address. Unless explicitly permitted, a user may only create one account per email address. If a user creates a business user account using the email address and password connected to an existing Amazon customer account, the user must either (a) change the email address and password associated with the existing account, or (b) if the user wishes to have only one account, convert the existing account into a business user account (which may make business user account information visible to others as described in Section 2). Once you complete the Business Account registration and verification process, your organization will be registered with Amazon.
You are responsible for all activities that occur under your organization's Business Account and any associated business user accounts (if and when applicable), regardless of whether the activities are undertaken by you, your employees or a third party (including your contractors or agents). Except to the extent caused by our breach of these Terms, we and our affiliates are not responsible for unauthorized access to your Business Account or business user accounts (if applicable). You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your password. You may not disclose your password to any third party (other than third parties authorized by you to use your Business Account or associated business user accounts, if applicable, in accordance with these Terms) and are solely responsible for any use or action taken under your password. You will contact us immediately if you believe an unauthorized third party may be using your Business Account or associated business user accounts, if applicable, or if your Business Account or any business user account information, if applicable, is lost or stolen.
As and when we decide to launch this feature, we may give users the ability to invite other individuals affiliated with your organization to create business user accounts that are associated with the organization's Business Account and purchase, approve or act as an administrator on behalf of your organization. Administrators have the ability to invite other users to join the Business Account and to administer, manage, or close business user accounts. You will be responsible for all actions taken by Business Account users. You acknowledge that users may have access to information from your Business Account and associated business user accounts, such as shipping addresses, payment methods, and order history. Administrators are responsible for inviting only people affiliated with, and authorized to act on behalf of, your organization to create a business user account that is associated with your organization's Business Account. Any user designated as an administrator will have similar capabilities to manage Business Account features and invite new users to purchase, approve or act as an administrator on behalf of your organization. You agree that Amazon is not responsible for, and will have no liability arising from, the disclosure of the information of your organization or any associated business user accounts to any user associated with your organization.
If any user with a business user account that is associated with your Business Account leaves your organization or is no longer authorized to purchase, approve or otherwise act on behalf of your organization, you are solely responsible for contacting Amazon through tools we designate to have that user's business user account closed, disabled or removed from the organization's Business Account. Amazon disclaims all liability for, and you are solely responsible for, any actions taken or purchases made prior to closing, disabling or removing the user's business user account from the organization's Business Account. Please review our Business Account FAQs carefully for more information on the effects of disabling or removing a business user account from your organization's Business Account. Please note that a business user account that is removed is converted back into a personal account, with the individual able to access order history for purchases made using an individual payment method while associated with the organization's Business Account.
If you, as an individual user, create a business user account that is associated with an organization's Business Account, you acknowledge and consent that your organization and designated individuals acting as administrators have full access to and authority over (a) your business user account (with the ability to close or disable your business user account or remove it from the business and convert it into a personal account), and (b) details from your business user account, such as, and not limited to: order history, addresses, payment details, and other personal information associated with your business user account. By creating a business user account that is associated with an organization's Business Account, you, as an individual user, consent to sharing this information with your organization and its designated representatives and agree to release Amazon for any and all liability for any of your business user account information provided to or used by your organization, the administrator(s) of your organization, and any other users associated with your organization.
We may use the business name, address, VAT/ CST/ CIN number and any other information you provide about your organization or users or that we may request or determine is necessary to verify accuracy and eligibility for Amazon Business. We may make, directly or through third parties, inquiries to validate information that you provide to us. We may accept or refuse use of Amazon Business at our discretion and may modify purchasing rights or privileges at any time. We may share any information or documents you provide with third-party sellers that offer certain Amazon Business features for verification purposes.
Certain products may require licensing, certification or other credentials to purchase them. To purchase such products, you must provide us with a valid license, certification or other credentials (collectively, the "Credentials"), as determined in our sole discretion. We may use information you provide, as well as information relating to your account such as your business name and address, to verify the Credentials, and we may request additional information from you to assist in that verification. We may, in our sole discretion and at any time, suspend or terminate your ability to purchase such products.
As and when we decide to launch this feature, Amazon Business may enable third party service providers ("providers") to integrate with Amazon Business. If you choose to use such a provider in connection with your Business Account, you authorize Amazon to disclose to the provider account information, including, without limitation, information regarding you, your Users, your employees or agents, and your and your User's orders. You acknowledge this information will be governed by the provider's privacy, data and security policies. You and your Users consent to Amazon's sharing this information with the provider and agree that Amazon is not responsible for and will have no liability arising from Amazon's disclosure of, or any provider's use of, this information.
Amazon is not responsible for any services provided by the provider. You are responsible for the approvals of Amazon orders, verification of shipping addresses and any disputes regarding orders, and you agree that Amazon will have no liability arising in any way from your use of the provider, including, but not limited to, any unauthorized charges you or your employees or agents incur.

(m) you will use any products purchased from Amazon.in as intended by the manufacturer and in compliance with all product information provided by the manufacturer;
(n) your purchase of products from us will not, either by your export of those products, your sale or use of those products, your legal status or otherwise, cause us to violate any Law; and

You agree and acknowledge that any of the products purchased by you will not be used, or made available to a third party for use for any unlawful purpose.
Subject to your compliance with these Terms and your payment of any applicable fees, Amazon or its content providers grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to access and use Amazon Business solely in accordance with these Terms. This license does not include the right to resell any Amazon Business feature; any collection and use of any product listings, descriptions, or prices; any derivative use of Amazon Business; any downloading or copying of Amazon Business information for the benefit of another merchant; or any use of data mining, robots, or similar data gathering and extraction tools.

You will use counsel reasonably satisfactory to us to defend each indemnified Claim. If at any time we reasonably determine that any indemnified Claim might adversely affect us, we may take control of the defense at our expense.

The terms and conditions in these Terms, the Amazon.in Conditions of Use, the Privacy Notice, and any applicable terms, conditions, policies, requirements or limitations contained on Amazon Business constitute the exclusive and complete agreement between Amazon and you. Amazon will not be bound by, and specifically rejects, any term, condition, obligation, or other provision which is different from or in addition to the provisions of these Terms or which may be in any order, receipt, acceptance, confirmation, correspondence or other document.
Any purchase order (PO) number or other internal information particular to your organization that is provided by a user during the purchasing process is provided only for your internal purchase tracking. Amazon doesn't agree to terms, conditions, obligations, or provisions that are different from or added to these Terms and the policies and information on the Amazon.in website.
We may in our discretion change these Terms, Amazon.in's Conditions of Use and Privacy Notice, or any aspect of Amazon Business, without notice to you. From time to time, Amazon may choose in its sole discretion to add or remove benefits or features of Amazon Business. If any change to these Terms is found invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that change is severable and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining changes or conditions. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF AMAZON BUSINESS AFTER WE CHANGE THESE TERMS CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE CHANGES. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ANY CHANGES, YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR BUSINESS ACCOUNT AND BUSINESS USER ACCOUNT.
The term of these Terms will begin on the date you click to accept it and will continue until you or we terminate it. We may terminate these Terms and access to your Business Account, business user account or use of any business features at our discretion with or without notice. You are entitled to terminate these Terms by giving us notice and closing your account. Upon termination, all rights and obligations under these Terms will automatically terminate except for any right of action occurring prior to termination, payment obligations, and obligations that are intended to survive termination, including, without limitation, Sections 4 - 18 of these Terms.
We will not be liable for any delays in delivery or failure to perform any of our obligations under these Terms by reasons, events or other matters beyond our reasonable control.
You will (a) protect and not disclose information made available by us that is identified as confidential or that reasonably should be considered confidential; (b) use this information only for internal purposes and in connection with your use of Business Accounts; and (c) destroy or return all such information to us promptly when the Terms terminate (and, upon request, confirm such destruction in writing).

Your use of Business Accounts is subject to the disputes and applicable law provisions of the Conditions of Use, which are incorporated by reference.
The parties to these terms are independent contractors. These Terms do not create any third party beneficiary rights in any individual or entity that is not a party to these Terms. You may not assign these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Subject to that restriction, these Terms will be binding on, inure to, and be enforceable against the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns. We may perform any of our obligations or exercise any of our rights under these Terms through one or more of our affiliates. Our failure to enforce your strict performance of any provisions of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce such provisions or any other provision of these Terms subsequently. If any provision of these Terms is deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and the Conditions of Use, these Terms will prevail.
