Last Updated: 13 May 2018
Our company Exim Trade Point S.L. as well as our website www.eutradepoint.com (hereafter, “Site”), are established and hosted in the European Union. As such we comply with the e-Commerce Directive 2000/31/EC that has created the basic legal framework for online services, including electronic commerce in the Internal Market.
You should keep in mind that Exim Trade Point S.L. website www.eutradepoint.com serves as an international market place, hence the posting or selling of items can be prohibited on account of laws out of the jurisdiction in which you reside.
Please be aware that Exim Trade Point S.L. does not permit any trading items that are illegal, infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others, or may easily be used for illegal purposes.
As a member of the Site, you are responsible for ensuring that the trading items you have posted are legal or permissible. Thus, before posting any product, selling lead and/or buying lead, you need to make sure that your trading items are NOT against the 'Product Listing Policy'.
Exim Trade Point S.L. reserves the right to remove any trading items that violate the 'Product Posting Policy' without further notice. Exim Trade Point S.L. also reserves the right to disable the accounts of any members who continue to violate the 'Product Posting Policy' after having been warned.

If customs officers suspect that goods bought on Internet and imported from third countries infringe an intellectual property right, they may detain the goods and inform the declarant or holder of the goods as well as the holder of an intellectual property right. The latter may decide to bring the case to the court.
Some European Union Member States have implemented procedures providing for the simplified destruction of goods considered to be infringing intellectual property rights under certain conditions, without the need to formally establish an infringement in court.
