We may terminate this Agreement by providing notice to you at any time. You may terminate this Agreement at any time by providing notice of termination to us, in which event we will cease offering your Titles within thirty (30) days from the date that we receive notice of termination; provided that if you distribute Titles via Non-Prime Subscription Access, (a) the Term of the Agreement with respect to Non-Prime Subscription Access will commence upon your acceptance of this Agreement and continue for eighteen (18) months from the date that your Subscription launches on the Service (the "Initial Subscription Term") and (b) the Initial Subscription Term will automatically extend for successive periods of twelve (12) months each unless and until terminated by either party by provision of notice of termination to the other party given not later than ninety (90) days prior to the conclusion of the then-current term.

4.     Territory

The territory, with respect to any Title, shall be each territory you indicate when prompted on the Program Site (the "Territory").

5.     Rights Granted:

You hereby grant Amazon a non-exclusive license in the Territory to use, reproduce, reformat for online delivery, encode, encrypt, market, promote, transmit, distribute and display on the Service the audio-visual programs ("Titles") pursuant to each Distribution Mode that you indicate on the Program Site; which in the case of Non-transactional Access will include access via free trials without any required payment of License Fees in connection therewith; provided, however, in the event that such free trials exceed a trial period for a given customer of 30 days per year, then Amazon will be obligated to pay you License Fees for such Non-transactional Access. As used herein, Title shall only refer to those audio-visual programs editable and viewable in your Program account, as made available by you.


"Service" means one or more digital video services branded with a brand of Amazon or an Amazon Affiliate through which authorized users may obtain Titles via a Distribution Mode. As used in this Agreement, Titles refer solely to the audio-visual programs viewable and editable in your Program account and authorized for distribution on the Service. For the avoidance of doubt, the terms of this Agreement apply solely with respect to the Distribution Mode you have enabled for each such Title.


Amazon will have the right, but not the obligation, to offer customers of the Service the opportunity to purchase or access the Titles pursuant to the Distribution Modes that you indicate as available on the Program Site. You will have an opportunity to provide a suggested retail price for your Titles that are made available for Digital Purchase, Digital Rental and Non-Prime Subscription Access but Amazon will have sole discretion to determine the retail prices charged for offerings on the Service.


Amazon may advertise, market, and promote, in any and all media (whether now known or hereafter devised), the availability of Titles on the Service using the Delivery Materials and any images, trailers, logos, artwork, publicity materials, and metadata provided by you as it deems appropriate (including any non-substantial edits to such materials (e.g. cropping, re-sizing and re-formatting)) as well as any video clips from the Titles created by Amazon of up to (i) 1 consecutive minute of footage from Titles that are under 22 minutes in duration and (ii) 3 consecutive minutes of footage from Titles that are 22 minutes or longer in duration (collectively, the "Promotional Materials"). Amazon may insert advertisements before, during or after Titles made available in the Service for Ad-Supported Access and may insert pre-roll and post-roll advertisements, graphics, videos, and logos into or over Titles made available on the Service via any Distribution Modes. Amazon may feature the Promotional Materials in advertisements outside the Program Site, in any media, to promote the Titles and related products, the Service and any features of the Service, and the availability of the Titles on the Service.


Amazon may make such modifications as may be necessary to conform the Title to applicable law in the Territory, provided Amazon will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure such modifications do not to impair the creative integrity, quality or meaning of the Title.


Notwithstanding any expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason, Amazon may continue (including, after the conclusion of the Term) to exercise the rights granted hereunder in order to provide customers who purchased Titles via Digital Purchase or Digital Rental during the Term the ability to continue to access (including, without limitation, via re-download and streaming from the Service) and view the applicable Titles after the Term; provided, however, Amazon may not offer customers the opportunity to initiate new purchases or rentals of the Titles for Digital Purchase or Digital Rental after the Term.


6.     General Description of the Service; Distribution Modes:

Content Provider, in its sole option, may allow customers to access Titles in the following ways:


(a) purchase a license to access digital copies of audio visual content for electronic delivery and repeated viewing over an indefinite period of time ("Digital Purchase");


(b) purchase a license to access digital copies of audio visual content for electronic delivery and repeated viewing over a finite period of time established by Amazon in its sole discretion ("Digital Rental");


(c) access audio visual content via one or more subscription offerings, where a fee is required to be paid for such access (other than in the case of a free trial), for repeated private viewing by subscribers during the Term ("Non-transactional Access"), which may be through (i) a subscription offering branded with a brand of Amazon or an Amazon Affiliate including the subscription offering known as of the date hereof as Amazon Prime, Prime Video or any successor thereto ("Prime Subscription Access") or (ii) a subscription offering of your content as compiled by you or us which may or may not include content from other content providers ("Non-Prime Subscription Access"); and


(d) access audio visual content on an ad-supported basis (i.e., at no charge to the customer) for delivery and repeated private viewing during the Term ("Ad-supported Access").


Digital Purchase, Digital Rental, Non-Transactional Access and Ad-supported Access are referred to herein as the "Distribution Modes".


The Service may be offered on a stand-alone basis and/or bundled with other products, services, or offerings, including Amazon Prime. As between the parties, Amazon will have sole control over the Service, all features, terms, and other aspects thereof (including, without limitation, the rights and entitlements granted to authorized users with respect to Digital Purchase, Digital Rental, Non-transactional Access and Ad-supported Access, the terms under which the Service is offered and the sale of advertisements in connection with the Service); provided, however, that Amazon's distribution of Titles on the Service shall be in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.


Without limiting the foregoing, you acknowledge that Amazon may (i) make the Service available through any websites, applications, device interfaces, third-party platforms and any other online platforms or points of presence now known or hereafter devised, (ii) grant authorized users who receive Digital Purchase, Digital Rental, Non-transactional Access and Ad-supported Access to audio-visual content the right to access such content via streaming, download, and any other means of digital distribution now known or hereafter devised, for online or offline viewing on any device supported by the Service, and (iii) deliver audio-visual content on the Service via any means now known or hereafter devised (including, without limitation, cable, wire, fiber, satellite, wireless and/or cellular).

7.     License Fee Payment

Subject to the limitations set forth in this Section, Amazon will pay you the applicable license fees set forth below ("License Fees") for each customer purchase of Titles for Digital Purchase or Digital Rental, and for offering customers Non-Transactional Access or Ad-supported Access. Such License Fees are the only compensation payable to you under this Agreement and constitute full and complete compensation to you for all rights granted under this Agreement.


Amazon will calculate, report and pay the License Fees in arrears within ninety (90) days after the completion of the applicable calendar month. You will receive payment from Amazon via electronic funds transfer unless electronic funds transfer is not available for the address provided for your account, in which case you will receive payment by wire transfer. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if you receive payment via wire transfer, Amazon may withhold payment until you have reached the minimum threshold in accrued License Fees for the applicable local marketplace as set forth on the Program Site. You will also be responsible for any fees imposed by your bank or any intermediary bank. For the purposes of calculating License Fee payments, (i) the "Purchase Price" for a customer's right to access Titles via Digital Purchase, Digital Rental or Non-Prime Subscription Access will equal the amount actually paid by the authorized user for that access, exclusive of any taxes, and (ii) Amazon will be entitled to an adjustment for customer refunds and credits and for amounts not collected due to bad debt. If we pay you License Fees on a sale and later issue a refund, return, or credit for that sale, we may offset the amount of the License Fees that we previously paid to you for the sale against future License Fees, or require you to remit that amount to us.  If a third party asserts that you did not have all rights required to make one of your Titles available through the Service or if we determine that you may be in breach of this Agreement, we may withhold all License Fees due to you with respect to such Title pending resolution of the issue. If we determine that you did not have all of the required rights or that you have otherwise breached this Agreement with regard to a Title, we will not owe you License Fees for that Title and we may offset any of the License Fees that were previously paid against future License Fees, or require you to remit a refund to us.  We may also withhold and offset any sums you owe to us against amounts that are payable to you. When this Agreement terminates, we may withhold all License Fees due for a period of three months from the date they would otherwise be payable, in order to ensure our ability to offset any customer refunds or other offsets to which we are entitled.  If we terminate your account because of your breach of this Agreement, you will forfeit any License Fees accrued but unpaid from the date of the notice of termination.  If after we have terminated your account, you open a new account without our express permission, we will not owe you any License Fees through the new account. Our exercise of these rights does not limit other rights we may have to withhold or offset License Fees or exercise other remedies under applicable law.


For clarity, Amazon will not be obligated to pay License Fees for Non-transactional Access in connection with the viewing of any Title by a customer if that customer was granted access to that Title via Digital Rental, Digital Purchase or Ad-supported Access, and similarly, Amazon will not be obligated to pay License Fees for Ad-supported Access in connection with the viewing of any Title by a customer if that customer was granted access to that Title via Digital Rental, Digital Purchase or Non-transactional Access.


Amazon may sell your Titles using multiple currencies. You may elect on the Program Site to receive any License Fees owed to you (i) where applicable, in the local currency for the territory in which the distribution occurs (the "Sale Currency") or (ii) the currency of a single territory in which the Titles were distributed. If we pay you in a currency other than the Sale Currency, we will convert the License Fees owed from the Sale Currency to the payment currency at a market exchange rate that we or our bank determine, which will be inclusive of all fees and charges for the conversion.

7.1  Digital Purchase, Digital Rental or Non-Prime Subscription Access License Fees


Amazon will pay to you (i) 50% of the applicable Purchase Price for Titles accessed via Digital Purchase or Digital Rental and (ii) 50% of the applicable Purchase Price for Titles accessed via Non-Prime Subscription Access.

7.2  Prime Subscription Access License Fee


For Titles made available for Prime Subscription Access, Amazon will pay you according to the rate card available below on a per title basis (for standalone titles and seasons), based on Hours Viewed by customers in the applicable Territory:


Please click here to view your rate card.

"Hours Viewed" means the number of hours of a Title that is viewed by a viewer that is authorized by Amazon to view any Title via Prime Subscription Access on the Service; provided that Hours Viewed will not include (and Amazon will not be obligated to pay for) (i) more than ten streams of the same Title by the same account in a given month or (ii) streams that Amazon determines, in its sole discretion, are not actual customer views (e.g., imitating legitimate views or click fraud) or are otherwise not authorized to access the Service.


Hours will start accruing when the Title is streamed for the first time and will continue for a 365-day period.


7.3  Ad-supported Access License Fee

Amazon will pay you 55% of Net Advertising Receipts.


"Net Advertising Receipts" means aggregate cash amounts collected by Amazon from the sale of advertisements against any Title for Ad-Supported Access during the quarter for which License Fees are being calculated, less 15% of that aggregate cash amount (which is deemed to reflect the cost of selling advertisements) and less any payments made to any third-party advertising platforms or networks in connection with the distribution or sale of advertisements on those platforms or networks.


8.     Taxes

As between the Parties, Amazon will be solely responsible for collecting and paying to the appropriate taxing authorities any national, state or local sales or use taxes, value added taxes ("VAT") or similar taxes (collectively "Transaction Taxes") applicable to purchases by customers. Amazon will not be required to pay any taxes imposed on or measured by your net income, net profits, income, profits, revenues, gross receipts, franchise, doing business, capital, intangible, value added (other than value added tax in the nature of sales or use or similar taxes), net worth, all real property and ad valorem taxes imposed by any governmental authority on the fees payable to you under this Agreement, or similar taxes or taxes in lieu thereof, whether collected by withholding or otherwise.


All payments payable by Amazon to you under this Agreement are inclusive of all Transaction Taxes that apply to the license of the Titles by you to Amazon, unless Amazon advises you otherwise. If and to the extent any payments hereunder are subject to and include any applicable Transaction Taxes, you will supply Amazon with an original, valid tax invoice, to the extent available under the applicable law, separately stating these Transaction Taxes, to enable Amazon to claim credit for these taxes as applicable. Amazon may provide you with an exemption certificate or equivalent information acceptable to the relevant taxing authority, in which case, you will not charge or collect the Taxes covered by such certificate. If taxes are required to be deducted or withheld on any payments to be made to you under applicable law, then Amazon will (i) deduct such taxes from the amount owed to you and pay them to the appropriate taxing authority as required by applicable law and (ii) secure and deliver to you a receipt or other legally required documentation for any taxes withheld as required under applicable laws.


Payment to you as reduced by such deductions or withholdings will constitute full payment and settlement to you of amounts payable under this Agreement. Except as specified in this Section, each Party will be responsible for its own taxes as levied by the applicable taxing authorities; provided, any charges toward the stamp duty payable under the applicable laws shall be borne by you. Throughout the term of this Agreement, you will provide Amazon with any forms, documents or other certifications as may be required by Amazon to satisfy any information reporting or withholding tax obligations with respect to any payments under this Agreement.

9.     Delivery of Content:

For each Title, Content Provider, at its sole cost, will deliver to Amazon the Delivery Materials in accordance with such technical specifications as provided by Amazon to Content Provider (including, without limitation, the requirement that the Title not contain any advertisements, bugs, visible on-screen logos, or tracking tags).


Content Provider authorizes Amazon to re-purpose and otherwise use in accordance with this Agreement (i) any Delivery Materials previously delivered to Amazon or its Affiliates by Content Provider or a third party, for purposes of exercising express and incidental rights granted hereunder with respect to the Titles and (ii) any Delivery Materials delivered by Content Provider under this Agreement, for purposes of Amazon exercising any rights granted to Amazon in respect of any Title under a subsequent agreement, solely to the extent authorized under any such subsequent agreement. Where any Delivery Materials have previously been delivered to Amazon by a third party, Content Provider will obtain any necessary clearances from such third party (if any) on behalf of Amazon and/or use its best efforts to assist Amazon in obtaining any such necessary clearances, to enable Amazon to use such previously delivered Delivery Materials. You will have no obligation to re-deliver Delivery Materials, except as necessary to comply with other obligations set forth pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.


With respect to each Title, the "Delivery Materials" means (i) a copy of the Title at the highest resolution available to you, (ii) all Promotional Materials (including, but not limited to, all images, trailers, logos and artwork associated with the Title), (iii) captions and audio language files for the Title in accordance with Amazon's technical specifications, but in any event, in accordance with applicable law for the Territory and Section 11 of this Agreement (iv) all metadata associated with the Title and (v) all available content ratings information, including rating and consumer advice, in accordance with applicable law for the Territory and Section 13 of the Agreement.


You agree that the subscriptions made available to Amazon hereunder for distribution via Non-Prime Subscription Access comprised of Titles ("Subscriptions") will, at a minimum, be the same subscription video on demand packages, including the same titles, as the subscription video on demand packages made available by you via any method of non-physical distribution.


The Titles made available to Amazon hereunder for distribution via Digital Purchase or Digital Rental will, to the best of Content Provider’s knowledge, include all audio-visual programs for which Content Provider has necessary rights to offer on a transactional video on demand basis in the Territory but solely to the extent such Titles are also offered by Content Provider via any other non-physical distributor in the Territory; provided such Titles as licensed to Amazon shall have the same or better delivery dates as any other distributor in the Territory.


10.  Representations and Warranties

You hereby represent and warrant that (i) you have the sole, full and unencumbered right to grant to Amazon and its Affiliates, and have obtained all necessary clearances and releases to grant to Amazon and its Affiliates, all of the rights set forth herein (excluding public performance rights for the communication to the public of the musical compositions contained within the Titles, such rights to be cleared by Amazon), (ii) any information and documentation you provide to us will be current, complete, and accurate (iii) the Delivery Materials and Promotional Materials will not contain any subject matter or materials that are defamatory, libelous, obscene, or otherwise illegal under the applicable laws of the Territory and (iv) none of the following will violate any law; require us to obtain any license, authorization, or other permission from any governmental agency or other third party; contain any defamatory material; or violate or infringe any intellectual property, proprietary, or other rights of any person or entity (including contractual rights, copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade dress, trade secret, common law rights, rights of publicity, or privacy, or moral rights): (a) the exercise of any rights granted under this Agreement; (b) any materials embodied in your Titles; (c) the sale, distribution, or promotion of the Titles as authorized in this Agreement; or (d) any notices, instructions or advertising by you for or in connection with any Titles.


You further represents and warrants that you are not subject to sanctions or designated on any list of prohibited or restricted parties (and is not owned or controlled by such a party), including but not limited to the lists maintained by the United Nations Security Council, the US Government, the European Union or its member states, or other applicable government authority.


You acknowledge that Amazon's Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (the "Code") prohibits the paying of bribes to anyone for any reason, whether in dealings with governments or the private sector. You will not violate or knowingly permit anyone to violate the Code's prohibition on bribery or any applicable anti-corruption laws in performing under this Agreement. Amazon may immediately terminate or suspend performance under this Agreement if you breach this requirement.

11.  Closed Captions; Subtitles

You will deliver closed captions for all Titles in accordance with Amazon's technical specifications as provided on the Program Site, but in any event, in accordance with applicable law for the Territory. You may not be able to publish a Title via one or more Distribution Modes in certain Territories until Amazon has received closed captions from you.


You will deliver English language versions of the Titles, unless the original version of a Title is not in English, in which case you will deliver (i) either audio descriptions, subtitles or dubbed language tracks and (ii) the title and synopsis information for the Title, in each case, in at least one core language identified by Amazon for the Territory.


Further to the rights granted hereunder, Amazon may create, insert and distribute closed captions, audio descriptions, dubbed language tracks and subtitles for Titles in any language for which Content Provider is able to grant the necessary rights in the Territory and may use or distribute any such closed caption, dubbed language track, subtitle file or audio description it creates in any such Territory. In connection with such creation, Amazon will use reasonable commercial efforts to ensure that such closed caption and subtitled versions reflect the original version of the Licensed Title.

12.  Geo-filtering; Access Controls:

Amazon will utilize industry standard geo-filtering techniques and digital rights management technology in a non-discriminatory manner in relation to similarly situated content providers. Content Provider agrees that Amazon shall be deemed to be exercising the rights granted herein solely within the Territory as long as Amazon complies with the foregoing. Content Provider acknowledges that Amazon makes no representation as to the efficacy of any geo filtering technique or digital rights management technology it employs and agrees that Amazon shall not be responsible for the failure of such.

Content Provider acknowledges and agrees that: (i) Content Provider's ability to suspend distribution of Titles on the Service shall be Content Provider's sole and exclusive right and remedy, and Amazon's sole and exclusive obligation, for any circumvention or failure of any geo filtering techniques or digital rights management technology used by Amazon on the Service for Titles and (ii) Content Provider shall not be entitled to any other remedies, including without limitation monetary damages, in connection therewith.

13.  Content Requirements

You must ensure that all of your Titles and Subscriptions are in compliance with our policies for content at the time you submit them to us. If you discover that content you have submitted does not comply, you must immediately withdraw the content and otherwise bring such Title or Subscription into compliance if it is to be distributed via the Service. If you discover that any information you have provided to us for a Title or Subscription is inaccurate or incomplete, you must promptly submit corrected information to us. We will determine what content we accept and distribute on the Service in our sole discretion.


If we request that you provide additional information relating to your Titles or Subscription, such as information confirming that you have all rights required to permit our distribution of the Titles or Subscription, you will promptly provide the information requested, recognizing that your content may not be made available for distribution until proof of rights is received. You authorize us, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we consider appropriate to verify your rights to permit our distribution of the Titles or Subscription and the accuracy of the information or documentation you provide to us with respect to those rights.


We may remove or modify the Titles, the Subscriptions, the metadata, cover art and product description you provide for your Titles and Subscriptions for any reason, including if we determine that it does not comply with Amazon's content policy guidelines. We will promptly notify you of any such removal of a Title or Subscription. You may not include any advertisements or other content that is primarily intended to advertise or promote products or services.


You agree to provide local content ratings in each country/region in which you distribute your Titles from the applicable local ratings authorities where requested by us. Nothing herein shall restrict Amazon from, at its sole cost, obtaining ratings information for the Titles in any country within the Territory or generating its own ratings for the Titles.


14.  Title Withdrawal

You may withdraw your Titles from availability on the Service at any time on thirty (30) business days advance notice by following the then current Program procedures for Title withdrawal or un-publishing; provided that you may not remove a Title within a Subscription unless you either (i) lose any rights or other licenses, consents or permissions relating to any specific Title that are necessary for you to grant the rights granted hereunder or (ii) receive written notice of a third-party claim relating to a Title, which reasonably could result in legal liability for you; provided that Amazon will only be obligated to withdraw the Title from a Subscription if you also concurrently obligate other subscription based services to withdraw the Title.


We may fulfill any customer orders completed through the date the Titles are available on the Service. All withdrawals of Titles and Subscriptions will apply prospectively only and not with respect to any customers who purchased the Titles or Subscriptions prior to the date of removal, meaning that we will allow any customer who has previously purchased a Title for Digital Purchase or Digital Rental or a Subscription for Non-Prime Subscription Access to view the Title or Subscription, as applicable, after it has been withdrawn from the Service to the extent that such customer purchased those rights prior to the withdrawal.


15.  Ownership; Feedback

Subject to the rights you grant to us under this Agreement, as between us and you, you retain all ownership rights in and to the copyrights and all other rights and interest in and to your Titles and Subscriptions. We retain all ownership rights in and to the copyrights and all other rights and interests in and to the Program, the Program Site and all Amazon properties, and any materials we use or provide to you for use relating to your Titles and Subscriptions (such as a generic cover image used for your Titles or Subscriptions if you do not provide one). We are solely responsible for, and will have full discretion with respect to the terms, features, and operation of the Program and the Program Site and related marketing, but our use of the Titles, Promotional Materials and Subscriptions will be subject to the terms of this Agreement. If you elect to provide suggestions, ideas, or other feedback to Amazon or any of its Affiliates in connection with the Service, the Program, the Program Site or anything on the Program Site ("Feedback"), Amazon and its Affiliates will be free to use and exploit the same in any manner without restriction and without any need to compensate you. This Agreement does not grant you any license or other rights to any intellectual property or technology owned or operated by us or any of our Affiliates, including, without limitation, any trademarks or trade names. You agree not to use any trade name, trademark, service mark, logo or commercial symbol, or any other proprietary rights of Amazon or any of its affiliates in any manner without prior written authorization. Nothing in this Agreement restricts any rights we may have under applicable law or a separate agreement.


16.  Termination of Agreement. If either party is in breach of this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within 30 days following written notice from the other party, the non-breaching party may terminate this Agreement upon 5 business days’ written notice to the breaching party. Following any termination or expiration of this Agreement, any provision which, by its nature or express terms should survive will survive such termination or expiration, including, but not limited to, Sections 16 through 20.


17.  Indemnification. You will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Amazon, its officers, directors, employees, shareholders, affiliates, subcontractors, successors and assignees, from and against any and all third-party claims, actions, causes of action, demands, judgments, liabilities, damages, losses, injuries, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs) brought against Amazon that arise from or relate to: (a) any breach or alleged breach by you of any of your representations, warranties or obligations set forth herein, including any failure to deliver closed captions, audio descriptions or ratings information for any Titles in compliance with applicable law; or (b) any claim that Amazon's exercise of the rights granted by you under this Agreement violates any law or regulation or the right(s) of any third party (individually, a "Claim", and collectively, the "Claims"). You will not consent to the entry of a judgment or settle a Claim without our prior written consent, which may not be unreasonably withheld. You will use counsel reasonably satisfactory to us to defend each Claim. If we reasonably determine that a Claim might adversely affect us, we may take control of the defense at our expense (and without limiting your indemnification obligations).




19.  Confidentiality. You will not, without our express, prior written permission: (a) issue any press release, media pitch or make any other public disclosures regarding this Agreement or its terms; (b) disclose Amazon Confidential Information (as defined below) to any third party or to any employee other than an employee who needs to know the information; or (c) use Amazon Confidential Information for any purpose other than the performance of this Agreement. You may however disclose Amazon Confidential Information as required to comply with applicable law, provided you: (i) give us prior written notice sufficient to allow us to seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy; (ii) disclose only that Amazon Confidential Information as is required by applicable law; and (iii) use reasonable efforts to obtain confidential treatment for any Amazon Confidential Information so disclosed. "Amazon Confidential Information" means (1) any information regarding Amazon, its affiliates, and their businesses, including, without limitation, information relating to our technology, customers, business plans, promotional and marketing activities, finances and other business affairs, (2) the nature, content and existence of any communications between you and us, and (3) any sales data relating to the sale of digital videos or other information we provide or make available to you in connection with the Program.

Without limiting the survivability of any other provision of this Agreement, this Section will survive three years following the termination of this Agreement.


20.  Miscellaneous. All rights granted to Amazon under this Agreement may be exercised by Amazon, its Affiliates, and subcontractors providing services in connection with the Service. Any Amazon Affiliate may join as a party to this Agreement and will notify you if it does so. The joining Amazon Affiliate will be entitled to exercise the rights that you grant under this Agreement. Each Amazon party is severally liable for its own obligations under this Agreement and is not jointly liable for the obligations of other Amazon parties.
