Responsibility to Submit Accurate Address Information
Orders that are missing vital information or that have data fields that have become corrupt may not be processed. Orders that cannot be processed will be deleted.

It is impossible for The Service to analyze the validity of any address due to the limitless permutations, spellings, and abbreviations found throughout the globe.  Punch Street assumes The Client is aware of the importance of an accurate address and the use of any postal codes that are available, and is therefore accepting the risk of no delivery. Orders which get returned to The Service due to incorrect or obsolete address information will be discarded, with no refund. Orders which get lost in the postal system and are never delivered or returned will not be refunded.

No Guarantee of Delivery of Card to Destination Address
Just like when you drop your mail in the mailbox, product delivery to final destination is not guaranteed. The Service only guarantees delivery to the local Post Office. Delivery addresses given must be current and proper legal addresses, recognized by the local postal establishment, or delivery may not be possible. Service is void where prohibited by political intervention or international sanctions.
