What We Do; Our Services
We provide the Parcel application by PackageX ("Parcel App") to assist you, our customers, in comparing, selecting, and purchasing third party courier services and postage, compiling and reviewing your shipping history, and resolving any questions via our customer support services. We will call these our "Services". We provide the Services for the legal shipping of products and documents nationally and internationally or otherwise transacting business with courier services, and for no other purposes.
When we refer to "we," "us," "our" and "PackageX," we refer to PackageX Inc., a Delaware Corporation, and its subsidiaries and corporate affiliates. The term "you" refers to the customer visiting the Website and/or purchasing third-party courier services through us on this Website, or through our partners and customer service agents.
PackageX is an Intermediary
PackageX serves only as an intermediary between you and couriers like the United States Postal Service ("USPS"). We only provide you with a platform to order their postage, shipping products and services. We do not provide the courier services ourselves. We do not transport, ship, deliver, or otherwise provide any service beyond simply reselling postage, labels and the Services we list on the Website.
When we display service options on our Parcel App offered by couriers like the United State Postal Service, this does not mean that we recommend, approve or sponsor that courier or that courier’s service options. We also cannot guarantee the quality of those services. Your interaction with any courier accessed through the Parcel App is at your own risk.
You agree that PackageX has no control over the couriers listed on the Parcel App, and is not responsible for the accuracy, timeliness, or thoroughness of information on the Parcel App related in any way to couriers or their Services. You acknowledge that PackageX will have no liability with respect to the acts, omissions, errors, representations, warranties, breaches, or negligence of any such courier or for any personal injuries, death, property damage, or other damages or expenses resulting from your interactions with the courier.
It is your responsibility to find, open, read, understand, and accept the terms, conditions, or rules of purchase of any courier you select for shipping. You are responsible for ensuring that your purchases abide by the terms and conditions of purchase imposed by any courier you select to perform shipping services, including terms and conditions of purchase set forth in a courier's terms, conditions, and rules. For instance, if a courier doesn’t permit the shipment of hazardous liquids, it is your responsibility to comply with those rules.

You are responsible for any additional charges due to (a) misstatements regarding weight, size, classification, number, or manner of Service, (b) deliveries on weekends or holidays, (c) local customs charges, (d) import taxes or duties, or (e) any similar charge(s) incurred. If any such charges become due as a result of Services performed by a carrier on your behalf and are charged to PackageX by a carrier, you agree that PackageX may charge any additional amounts due on the credit card or bank account used when such Services were purchased or, in the event that you paid for the Services in another manner, you agree to reimburse PackageX fully for such charges within seven (7) days of our demand. PackageX is not required to automatically provide any refunds or reduction of charges for any misstatement by you of weight, size, number or manner of Service.

In addition, you agree to assign to PackageX any and all rights to file any such claims with or against any carrier with respect to Services ordered or paid for on the Website.
You may maintain a pre-funded account balance with PackageX (if this option is made available to you) and view that balance, your transaction, shipping label and postage activity, refunds, adjustments and other transactions within your account, online at any time. PackageX does not share that account activity with the couriers or third parties, though the couriers may keep track of the shipping information that you provide for postage/courier labels.
If you fund and maintain a positive balance in your account with PackageX, PackageX will keep track of that balance but will not segregate those funds into separate bank accounts and will not pay interest on those accounts. If you request a refund of any positive account balances, PackageX will work to promptly and expeditiously honor such refund requests, subject to the payment/refund procedures of your bank/payment provider.
If we don’t hear from you for a while and we cannot get in touch with you, we may consider your account abandoned. We will wait as long as we can to maintain your account and reach out to you at the contact information you’ve provided. But PackageX (and its partners or successors in interest) may refer abandoned account balances to the State Treasurer or applicable office in whichever state or jurisdiction we are in at that time in accordance with applicable regulations.
Change in Billing, Prices, Promotions and Policies
PackageX may change billing procedures, prices, promotions and/or policies at any time without advance notice.
