Terms and Conditions of Use
Effective March 1, 2011
1. Acceptance of Terms
By using our Service, you are agreeing to be legally bound by this "Terms and Conditions", all applicable laws and regulations, and agree that you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws. You represent and warrant to Postcardly you are at least eighteen years of age. If you do not agree with any of these terms, you are prohibited from using the Service or accessing this site. If you violate these Terms and Conditions, Postcardly will terminate your Service and prevent your future use of the Service.
2. Accounts and Service Plans
Your account is created and protected by your email address and password. You are responsible for the confidentiality of that password. You are responsible for the use of the Service from your email address or any approved sender email addresses you add to your account.
Your account has a service plan. The plan details the number of postcards you may send over a set time period and the amount Postcardly will charge your credit card for that time period or number of postcards. You may change your service plan. If you're changing to a higher-priced plan, Postcardly will that day charge your credit card the difference between the old and new plan and increase your allotted postcards. If you're changing to a less-expensive plan, Postcardly will change to your new plan on your next billing date.
The available plans may change at any time. Your existing plan will be grandfathered to your account, if that plan is no longer available on the website.
3. Overage fees
Your account has a setting to allow you to exceed the number of postcards in the time period in exchange for an overage fee. Postcardly will either charge your credit card for the overages on your next billing date or we may charge the fees immediately.
4. Account holds and cancellations
You may put your account on hold at any time. Postcardly will not create postcards from your emails for accounts under a hold. When you remove the hold, Postcardly will charge your credit card for your selected plan. This will create a new billing date for your account.
You may cancel your account at any time. This is irreversible. It will take away any unused postcards for that time period and not refund any money.
Postcardly may terminate your account if you do not maintain a valid credit card or violate these terms and conditions.
5. Customer Content
In using the Service, you will email text and images to Postcardly. These will printed into postcards and mailed to your intended recipient. You will retain ownership of the text and images. Postcardly and its printer will at least monthly delete the text and images.
You represent and warrant that you own or possess the rights to your text and images. Your text and images do not infringe on the intellectual rights of third parties. Your text and images will not be unlawful, fraudulent, threatening, libelous or obscene. Text and images going to United States military addresses have special rules you must adhere to. These rules are summarized at http://www.usps.com/supportingourtroops/mailingrestrictions.htm
Postcardly and the printer will routinely spot check a few postcards, but are not screening them. You are responsible for text and images of postcards sent by you and your approved senders.
If the US Postal Service does not deliver your postcard, we are under no obligation to refund your money.

"I used Postcardly to send a postcard to my husband in Afghanistan, and even though I email him pics all the time, postcards are tangible. And a big hit at 'mail call,' to show off the babies and all that. And it was so easy, click click, done!"
"I sent my dad a Postcardly from Kauai, and he said, 'How do you do this magic?'"
"My son sent a postcardly from the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin—so great to have a real photo on real paper with a message. It went right up on my bulletin board at work to be shared with all. So much more meaningful than a purchased postcard! And, quick. He was still in Berlin when his postcardly arrived. Then another arrived from someplace called Curry 36."
"Postcardly has been the greatest thing since sliced bread. My grandmas who don't have Internet rave every month to get a postcard from my 9-month-old son with a new photo."
"Thank you postcardly for making my life easier. I love to send postcards to my family and friends of my so cute baby girl. I have lots of people in the family that need help even opening an attachment, but now I just send a quick email to Postcardly and days later they have a real postcard with Jessica's wonderful face."
