We reserve the right to cancel your account if we do not receive your signed Form 1583 within thirty (30) days from your order.
To begin your service, you may have to file a Change of Address (“COA”) with the USPS. We are not responsible for any non-compliance or errors by the USPS related to your COA.
Unless otherwise designated on your Form 1583 or otherwise expressly agreed, we will not accept:
- restricted mail. Some locations may not accept certified, registered, or restricted-delivery mail, packages. If you have signed up for a Service that authorizes such acceptance, you authorize us to sign for any mail addressed to you.

In some jurisdictions, formal service of process may be effectuated by hand-delivering papers to the tenant of a mail agent such as us or through certified or other mail to your SnapMailbox service address. You acknowledge your awareness of this possibility and agree to hold us harmless from any and all damages or harm arising out of the delivery of such process to us.
We will scan the outside of your mail unless we determine, in our sole discretion that doing so would violate law. By directing us through your account, you authorize us to take whatever action indicated.
As part of our mail forwarding service, we forward your mail to the address you designate using USPS or other commercially-reasonable mail services. Once we provide your mail with them, our obligations to forward your mail have been completed.

Ambiguities regarding addressee
If we can determine certain items are yours although not correctly addressed, we will try to scan such items in your primary account. We are not responsible for scanning any mail to accounts (either to the wrong account or failing to scan to your account) when the mail is not properly addressed.
If we cannot determine to whom certain mail belongs, we will first try to “Return to Sender.” If we are unable to do so, we reserve the right to open the mail to try and better determine to whom it belongs. If the identity of the addressee can still not be determined, we are authorized the dispose of that mail without any liability.

When the Initial Term ends, this Agreement will automatically renew for successive terms of the same length as your Initial Term. If at renewal, we no longer offer the package you originally signed up for, we will place you in the package that is most similar to your original package.

The arbitrability of any Disputes (as defined below) is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not any state laws applicable to arbitrations. Regarding the substantive law of any Disputes, to the maximum extent authorized by law, the laws of the State of Texas govern the non-arbitration related interpretation of this Agreement and the substantive law of any Dispute, regardless of conflict of laws principles.
Arbitration. Any Dispute shall be FINALLY and EXCLUSIVELY resolved by binding individual arbitration conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules. This arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. 1-16).
ARBITRATION OF YOUR CLAIM IS MANDATORY AND BINDING. NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE THAT CLAIM THROUGH A COURT. IN ARBITRATION, NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OR TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED FOR IN THE AAA CODE OF PROCEDURE.
All determinations as to the scope, interpretation, enforceability and validity of this Agreement shall be made final exclusively by the arbitrator, which award shall be binding and final. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This arbitration provision shall survive: i) the termination of the Agreement; or ii) the bankruptcy of any party. If any portion of this arbitration provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in force.
NO CLASS ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR JOINDER OR CONSOLIDATION OF ANY CLAIM WITH A CLAIM OF ANOTHER PERSON OR CLASS OF CLAIMANTS SHALL BE ALLOWABLE.
RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER WITHIN 30 DAYS. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THE BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER IN THIS SECTION, YOU MUST NOTIFY US IN WRITING WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE DATE THAT YOU ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT. YOUR WRITTEN NOTIFICATION MUST BE EMAILED TO SNAPMAILBOX, LLC AT SUPPORT@SNAPMAILBOX.COM, ATTN: LEGAL OPT-OUT AND MUST INCLUDE: (1) YOUR NAME, (2) YOUR ADDRESS, AND (4) A CLEAR STATEMENT THAT YOU DO NOT WISH TO RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH US THROUGH ARBITRATION.
Any arbitration will be conducted by the AAA under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. If the value of the dispute is $75,000 or less, its Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will also apply. On disputes involving $75,000 or less, we will promptly reimburse your filing fees and pay the AAA’s and arbitrator’s fees and expenses. You agree to commence arbitration only in your county of residence or in Harris County, Texas, US. We agree to commence arbitration only in your county of residence. You may request a telephonic or in-person hearing by following the AAA rules. In a dispute involving $10,000 or less, any hearing will be telephonic unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. The arbitrator may award the same damages to you individually as a court could. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only to you individually, and only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim. Nothing herein prohibits us from asking the arbitrator to award us all costs of the arbitration including any Administrative Fees paid on your behalf.
If the Dispute is not arbitrated by the choice of the parties or a court does not compel arbitration if either party elects to arbitrate for whatever reason, the Dispute will be decided by a court without any right by either party to a trial by jury. Any such court proceeding, including any efforts to compel arbitration or initially filed lawsuits that arises out of or relates to this Agreement or use of the Sites shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in the Houston, Harris County, Texas.
Dispute is defined as “Any dispute, claim or controversy between you and us, our members, officers, directors, agents, parent companies and affiliated companies that arises out of or relates to this Agreement or use of the Site or Service, or otherwise regarding any aspect of your relationship with us that have accrued or may thereafter accrue, whether based in contract, statute (including, but not limited to, any consumer protection statutes, regulation or ordinance), tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence or any other intentional tort), or any other legal or equitable theory.
