Date of Last Revision: March 3, 2010.
Welcome to our website ("Website"). Change of Address, LLC ("COA" or "us" or "our" or "we") is a Florida limited liability company and the owner and operator of this Website. COA provides a service ("Service") via our Website where people can change their address with the United States Postal Service ("USPS") using a streamlined and easy to use process.
COA IS NOT A GOVERNMENT AGENCY AND IS NOT AFFILIATED IN ANY WAY WITH THE USPS. COA FUNCTIONS AS YOUR AUTHORIZED AGENT IN ACCOMPLISHING YOUR CHANGE OF ADDRESS REQUEST WITH THE USPS. IN THE INTEREST OF FULL DISCLOSURE YOU SHOULD BE AWARE THAT THE USPS ALSO PROVIDES AN ONLINE CHANGE OF REQUEST SERVICE. OUR SERVICE PROVIDES THE FOLLOWING ADDITIONAL BENEFITS THAT THE USPS SERVICE DOES NOT:
- Unlimited Address Changes For 3 Months
- Free Address Labels Coming Soon
- Assisted Data Filing
By using the Service you acknowledge and agree as that you have fully read and agree to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement and that you are of legal age or older and have the legal capacity to enter into a binding agreement with COA. If you do not agree to be bound by this Agreement in its entirety, or are not of legal age, then you must immediately stop using the Service. If you choose to use the Service you are required to read the Agreement and click "I Agree" to accept the Agreement each time you make payment for a change of address request.
3. Modifications to the Agreement
COA reserves the right to change or revise this Agreement at any time by posting a notification on our Website. COA will notify you of revision dates by posting the "last revised date" preceding the first paragraph of this Agreement. The revised Agreement will take effect immediately after it has been posted. Your continued use of the Service after notification will signify your acceptance of any such changes or revisions. Further, by clicking "I Agree" as described above you are accepting any modifications to the Agreement.
COA requires, and enforces, strict compliance with its Service eligibility (Eligibility) requirements, as contained herein. The Service is not intended for individuals under the age of 13, with or without parental support. The Service is intended solely for use by those of legal age or older. You assert and warrant that COA is processing the change of address request on your behalf or on behalf of an individual or entity of whom you are an authorized agent. Use of the Service by any other person is strictly prohibited, unauthorized, unlicensed, void, and in violation of this Agreement.
5. Change of Address Information
The Service facilitates your change of address request with the USPS. Therefore, in consideration for your use of the Service, COA requires, and you agree, that you will provide us accurate, current, and reliable data when completing our change of address forms. You agree that without accurate data your change of address request cannot be processed correctly. COA will contact you if we determine that the information provided appears inaccurate. However, there are limitations with respect to the amount verification that we can perform. Therefore, you acknowledge and agree that you are the party responsible for the data submitted to the Service.
6. Payments and Refunds
Payment is due immediately upon completion of our change of address forms. COA will not process your request until payment has been received. All payments are final. COA will not refund the payment for your change of address request once we have started processing the request. We will start processing your request immediately after payment has been verified by our Payment Processor. COA will vigorously oppose any payment "charge backs" wrongfully initiated by you once we have started processing your request. The amount of payment due is specified on our payment form. This is the entire amount due for one change of address request.
