Under E.U. law, this includes (technical) data and end Parts that are: (1) controlled under the Common Military List of the European Union or any EU Member State equivalent, or (2) subject to the EU Dual Use Regulation 428/2009 (as amended by Regulation 2019/2199).

(iv) You certify that you understand that it is your responsibility to determine and provide the appropriate export classification for the products and related technology and software to be supplied to Unionfab and to comply with the prohibition on Export Controlled Data provided herein. Unionfab relies entirely on you to provide accurate information to comply with applicable export control laws. The export classification indicates whether the product and related technologies are controlled, the relevant jurisdiction or jurisdictions, when an export license is required, and whether the product and technology qualify for a license exception. An incorrect classification could result in export control violations, leading to significant fines and other sanctions.
(v) You represent and warrant that the production, shipping, sale and use of the Parts or tooling by us in response to Your Order does not violate any export control laws or regulations.
(vi) You represent and warrant that You will not, directly or indirectly, (1) sell, export, re-export, transfer, divert, or otherwise dispose of any products, software, or technology (including products derived from or based on such technology) received from Unionfab to any destination, entity, or person prohibited by law or regulation or (2) use Parts for any use prohibited by law or regulation, without obtaining prior authorisation from the competent government authorities as required by those laws and regulations.

You represent and warrant that Your User Consent (including 3D CAD Data, 2D technical drawings, Assembly files and Electronic related documents), Your Order and the production, shipping, sale and use of the Parts or tooling by us:
(i) Does not contain any weapons. “Weapons” is broadly defined as:

This includes (1) any device which will or is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive; (2) any device capable of being concealed on the person from which a shot can be discharged through the energy of an explosive; (3) any part integral to the safe firing of a projectile utilising an explosive from a device described in (1) or (2); and (4) ammunition including cartridge cases, primers, bullets, or propellant powder designed for use in any firearm;

It is and remains your sole responsibility to comply with this Acceptable Use Policy when using the Site and uploading designs to the Site, and placing Orders. Unionfab is not obliged to check the User Content before accepting or executing any Order or having the Parts manufactured by its manufacturing partners.

You may be charged customs duties and taxes for something you bought on Unionfab because:
• Duties and taxes are typically not included in the item's price and might not be included in the shipping costs you pay us.
• When ordering on Unionfab, you are buying from an overseas manufacturer. That’s why sometimes you will be asked to pay customs duty.
The taxes may depend on where your order was sent from, the type of items you bought, their value and the weight of the package. Different countries may have other tax policies regarding specific products. Confirming this with your local customs authority or the sales rep is always best.
You are responsible for clearing VAT on all purchases made on Unionfab. This can be done through the VAT clearance procedure of your local customs authority in your country of residence.
Please note: Unionfab never covers customs duties and taxes.
To avoid any unforeseen surprises, please pay attention to the following:
• Contact your local post or customs office to learn more about your country’s customs duties and taxes.
• The shipping company usually collects import duties, taxes or other customs-related charges upon delivery.
• Unionfab is not responsible for delays caused by the customs department in your country.
• Additional costs or delays may occur during international trade.
