WHAT WE DO.
Freightforwarderservices.com is an online media service provider that:
- Publishes informational content about global freight, cargo, and logistics industries.
- Publishes listings of global freight and logistics companies, along with premium listings.
- Allows users to publish freight requests so that service providers can contact them (the “Load Board“).
Freightforwarderservices.com is not a transportation, logistics, or freight provider. We do not take possession of any freight or provide freight services to the end user.

If you agree to the TOU and (1) are of sufficient age and capacity to use FFS and be bound by the TOU, or (2) use FFS on behalf of a business, thereby binding that business to the TOU, we grant you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-assignable license to use FFS in compliance with the TOU; unlicensed use is unauthorized. You agree not to display, “frame,” make derivative works, distribute, license, or sell, content from FFS, excluding postings you create. You grant us a perpetual, irrevocable, unlimited, worldwide, fully paid/sublicensable license to use, copy, display, distribute, and make derivative works from content you post.
USE. Unless licensed by us in a separate written or electronic agreement, you agree not to use or provide software (except our App and general purpose web browsers and email clients) or services that interact or interoperate with FFS, e.g. for downloading, uploading, creating/accessing/using an account, posting, flagging, emailing, searching, or mobile use. You agree not to copy/collect FFS content via robots, spiders, scripts, scrapers, crawlers, or any automated or manual equivalent (e.g., by hand). Misleading, unsolicited, and/or unlawful postings/communications/accounts are prohibited, as is buying or selling accounts. You agree not to post content that is prohibited by any of FFS’s policies or rules referenced above (“Prohibited Content”). You agree not to collect FFS user information or interfere with FFS. You agree we may moderate FFS access/use in our sole discretion, e.g., by blocking, filtering, re-categorizing, re-ranking, deleting, delaying, holding, omitting, verifying, or terminating your access/license/account. You agree (1) not to bypass said moderation, (2) we are not liable for moderating or not moderating, and (3) nothing we say or do waives our right to moderate, or not. Unless licensed by us in a separate written or electronic agreement, you agree not to (i) rent, lease, sell, publish, distribute, license, sublicense, assign, transfer, or otherwise make available FFS , (ii) copy, adapt, create derivative works of, decompile, reverse engineer, translate, localize, port or modify the App, any website code, or any software used to provide FFS, (iii) combine or integrate FFS with any software, technology, services, or materials not authorized by us, (iv) circumvent any functionality that controls access to or otherwise protects FFS, or (v) remove or alter any copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights notices.

DISCLAIMER & LIABILITY. To the full extent permitted by law, FFS and its officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, affiliates, and successors in interest (“FFS Entities”) (1) make no promises, warranties, or representations as to FFS, including its completeness, accuracy, availability, timeliness, propriety, security or reliability; (2) provide FFS on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis and any risk of using FFS is assumed by you; (3) disclaim all warranties, express or implied, including as to accuracy, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement, and all warranties arising from course of dealing, usage, or trade practice; and (4) disclaim any liability or responsibility for acts, omissions, or conduct of you or any party in connection with FFS. FFS Entities are NOT liable for any direct, indirect, consequential, incidental, special, punitive, or other losses, including lost profits, revenues, data, goodwill, etc., arising from or related to FFS, and in no event shall such liability exceed $100 or the amount you paid us in the year preceding such loss. Some jurisdictions restrict or alter these disclaimers and limits, so some may not apply to you.
CLAIMS & INDEMNITY. Any claim, cause of action, demand, or dispute arising from or related to FFS (“Claims”) will be governed by the internal laws of Washington DC, without regard to conflict of law provisions, except to the extent governed by US federal law. Any Claims will be exclusively resolved by courts in Washington, DC (except we may seek preliminary or injunctive relief anywhere). You agree to (1) submit to the personal jurisdiction of courts in Washington, DC; (2) indemnify and hold FFS Entities harmless from any Claims, losses, liability, or expenses (including attorneys’ fees) that arise from a third party and relate to your use of FFS; and (3) be liable and responsible for any Claims we may have against your officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, or any other party, directly or indirectly, paid, directed or controlled by you, or acting for your benefit.
MISC. Unless you have entered into a separate written or electronic agreement with us that expressly references the TOU, this is the exclusive and entire agreement between us and you, and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral. Users complying with prior written licenses may access FFS thereby until authorization is terminated. Our actions or silence toward you or anyone else does not waive, modify, or limit the TOU or our ability to enforce it. The USE, LIQUIDATED DAMAGES, and CLAIMS & INDEMNITY sections survive termination of the TOU, and you will remain bound by those sections. If a TOU term is unenforceable, it shall be limited to the least extent possible and supplemented with a valid provision that best embodies the intent of the parties. The English version of the TOU controls over any translations.
