USPS Form 1583 and Other Required Documentation
By completing the USPS Form 1583, a copy of which will be made available to the United States Postal Service, you hereby appoint US Global Mail as agent for receipt of any mail addressed to you and delivered to US Global Mail. Per USPS regulations, US Global Mail is not authorized to accept mail on your behalf until the USPS Form 1583 has been completed. Furthermore, until you have provided a notarized copy of USPS Form 1583, two (2) forms of identification, and a verified credit card. US Global Mail reserves the right to return to sender all incoming mail addressed to you and delivered to US Global Mail.
US Global Mail does not accept or send C.O.D. deliveries. Nor can US Global Mail use any third-party shipper accounts.
You will create an account (“Account”) and receive a mailbox designation (“Mailbox”) during the new account registration process. Do not reveal your Account information to anyone else. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Account and for all activities that occur on or through your Account. You agree to immediately notify US Global Mail of any unauthorized use of your password or Mailbox or any other breach of security. US Global Mail shall not be responsible for any losses arising out of the unauthorized use of your Account.
You agree to provide accurate and current information when you register with US Global Mail (your “Online Profile”), and you agree to maintain and promptly update your Online Profile to keep it accurate and current. You agree that US Global Mail may store and use your Online Profile that you provide for use in maintaining and billing fees to your Account.
Initial Term and Renewal
The initial Mailbox rental period (“Initial Term”) will be determined by the plan (the “Plan”) selected when you create an Account. The minimum Mailbox rental period is three (3) months. When the Initial Term expires, your Agreement will automatically renew for a Mailbox rental period equal to the Initial Period, unless you notify us in writing via mail, fax or email of your intent to cancel this Agreement. If we no longer offer that Plan, we will automatically place you on its closest equivalent. You may upgrade or downgrade your Plan at anytime. However, should you elect to change your Plan prior to your monthly anniversary date, you will be billed for the higher priced Plan.
Pricing and Payment
US Global Mail provides the Services under this Agreement pursuant to fees published here and here (the “Fee Schedule”), which are incorporated into this Agreement by reference. By creating an Account and selecting a Plan, you hereby acknowledge that you have access to the Fee Schedule and agree to pay all fees incurred by any person(s) using your Account. US Global Mail reserves the right to modify the Fee Schedule at anytime and to impose new or additional fees. Such modifications and additional fees will be effective immediately and incorporated into this Agreement, and your continued use of the Services will be deemed acceptance thereof.
Paying for Services by credit card is the most convenient way to maintain your account. Keep in mind that credit and debit cards always expire at some point; you must keep your account payment information current to ensure uninterrupted Service and avoid storage fees. Should you elect not to use a credit or debit card for payment of Services, you must maintain a deposit of $100 or greater. Account maintenance fees must be paid by your monthly anniversary date. Delinquent accounts may be denied Services, and any mail received will be subject to storage fees. Included Services not used in any billing cycle may not be carried over into the next billing cycle. Any and all payments, including prepayments, made to US Global Mail are nonrefundable.
You understand and agree that US Global Mail is not a customs agent or broker and, as a result, you are solely responsible for the import and export of your mail and goods, including all descriptions, fees etc. Specifically, you understand and agree that you are responsible for any and all customs, duties, tariffs, taxes, return fees or other charges or fees of any nature relating to the shipment of your mail or goods – none of which are included in the Fee Schedule; you are also responsible for all descriptions. Likewise, any additional insurance in excess of the standard amount insured by carriers (i.e., USPS, FedEx, UPS or DHL) must be authorized and paid in advance by you.
US Global Mail does not accept third-party shipping accounts.
