1. Description of Services
Parcel Port Solutions Inc. (“Parcel Port”, “we” and “us”) is the provider of intelligent lockers (the “Smart Parcel Lockers”) that are installed in multi-unit residential and commercial buildings and offered as a turn-key solution. These Smart Parcel Lockers allow couriers (each a “Courier”) easy access to drop-off tenant parcels, and tenants to pick up their own parcels at their convenience (the “Services”) 24/7. For the purpose of these Terms of Service, Services shall include (a) temporary storage of tenant parcels (each a “Shipment”), once delivered by the Courier and until picked up by you; (b) video monitoring of each Smart Parcel Locker; (c) electronic notifications that the Shipment has arrived and reminders.

2.1 The Terms of Service represent a legally binding agreement between the undersigned (and your client, employer or another entity if you are acting on their behalf) (“you” or “your”) and Parcel Port and its affiliates or subsidiaries. The Services are offered on the sole condition of your acceptance without modification of any and all terms, conditions, and notices set forth below (collectively, the “Terms of Service”). By using the Services, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms of Service and represent that you have read and understood the same.
