See "Claims Procedure" below.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT PROVIDE INSURANCE OF ANY KIND, NOR DO WE PERMIT YOU TO ASSIGN A DECLARED VALUE TO ANY PRINTED PRODUCT OR SERVICE.

Claims Procedure

PIP Printing will either refund or credit (at its option) the charges You actually paid for the Services (including shipping charges, if applicable) if we fail to properly provide the Services or the printed products or to properly ship the printed products, subject to limitations described in the Section above entitled "Limitations and Disclaimers".

Any refund will be sent to the billing address on Your account.

7. A service failure will not be deemed to have occurred if within 30 calendar days after You notify PIP Printing, PIP Printing provides You with:

a. Proof of timely delivery, consisting of the date and time of delivery and name of the person who signed for the shipment or signature release information;

OR

b. Service exception information reflecting that the failure to timely deliver resulted from circumstances described under "Limitations and Disclaimers."
