To ensure the Agritz Fresh community remains a safe, inclusive, and courteous environment, you agree to adhere to the following policies in all community spaces:

Avoid interfering with another seller’s business by utilizing community tools or places.
Avoid spamming. This includes unsolicited or duplicate postings or links to your store, fundraisers, polls, social network accounts, or other commercial items.

Agritz Fresh connects buyers and sellers globally. You are responsible for adhering to this policy regardless of your location when you use Agritz Fresh’s services. By accessing or using any of our Services, you agree to the terms of this policy and our Terms of Service.
As a multicultural marketplace in the United States with activities in other countries, Agritz Fresh is subject to economic sanctions and trade restrictions, including those imposed by the US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”). This implies that Agritz Fresh and anybody utilizing our Services are prohibited from engaging in transactions with specified individuals, places, or things originating in such locations, as assessed by government authorities such as OFAC.
This policy is applicable to anybody who using our Services, regardless of their geographical location. It is your responsibility to get acquainted with these limits.
For instance, these prohibitions typically apply to, but are not limited to, transactions including the following:
Certain geographical territories, such as Crimea, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Syria, or any person or entity operating or residing there;
Cuban nationals, regardless of their location, unless they have gained citizenship or permanent residency outside of Cuba; and
Except for instructional goods such as books, films, posters, phonograph records, pictures, cassettes, compact disks, and some artworks, items originating in Cuba, North Korea, Iran, or Crimea are not permitted.
Agritz Fresh takes efforts to guarantee compliance with sanctions programs in order to safeguard our community and marketplace. For instance, Agritz Fresh bans members from accessing their accounts in particular geographic areas. We may suspend or terminate your use of our Services if we have reason to suspect you are operating your account from a sanctioned area, such as any of the locations mentioned above, or are otherwise in violation of any economic sanction or trade restriction. Members are typically prohibited from listing, purchasing, or selling things originating in sanctioned locations. This includes goods that were removed from the restricted place prior to the imposition of penalties, as we have no means of verifying when they were truly removed. Agritz Fresh maintains the right to seek more information from vendors, to require sellers to disclose the country of origin of an item in a listing, or to require sellers to take other actions to comply with compliance responsibilities. We have the right to remove listings or cancel transactions that violate this policy.
Along with adhering to OFAC and other local regulations, Agritz Fresh members should be aware that other countries may impose their own trade restrictions and that some commodities may be prohibited from export or import under international law. When international parties are involved in a transaction, you should study the laws of that jurisdiction.
Agritz Fresh members should be aware that third-party payment processors, such as PayPal, may monitor and restrict transactions independently for sanctions compliance as part of their own compliance efforts. Agritz Fresh has no influence or control over these providers’ autonomous decision-making.
Economic sanctions and trade restrictions affecting your use of the Services are subject to change, and members should consult sanctions resources on a frequent basis. Please seek a certified expert for legal advice.
Agritz Fresh reserves the right to take action against any account that breaches these terms, including account deletion or suspension. For example, we may restrict your community posting rights temporarily or permanently, revoke your community access, or terminate your Agritz Fresh account, which would instantly cease any Agritz Fresh store activity. If we do, it is critical to note that you will no longer have a contractual or legal right to utilize our Services, including Community areas or the Agritz Fresh Trademarks. Generally, Agritz Fresh will contact you if your account has been cancelled or suspended, unless you have violated this policy or our Terms on a recurrent basis or we are unable to tell you for legal or regulatory reasons
