Client agrees not to publish Address if Client is not current in payments.
Fraud: Client agrees not to use the Services for any illegal purpose. If Company in Company’s sole discretion suspects that Client’s contact information or payment method is fraudulent, or if Client is attempting to cause Company to ship goods to countries that prohibit such shipments or to which the shipment of such goods from the
U.S. is unlawful, then Company may in Company’s sole discretion immediately terminate Client’s account without refund and turn all related information over to the USPS Office of the Postal Inspector, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, the applicable State Attorney General or Embassy with jurisdiction, or other local, state and national law enforcement authorities.
Cooperation: Client understands that Company cooperates with the USPS Postal Inspection Service and will share any and all information about Client and Client’s use of the Services upon its reasonable request.
