SENDTELEGRAM.COM INTERNET TELEGRAM SERVICE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
SendTelegram.com’s internet telegram service (Service) allows you to send a telegram anywhere in the world using your credit card or debit card. By using or attempting to use the Service, you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions. Please read them carefully.
The Service allows you to compose a written message and designate the name and physical address of its intended recipient, all on the SendTelegram.com website. The Service agrees to deliver your message to the recipient on paper in a sealed envelope. You agree to pay a transaction fee for each use of the Service.
LATIN ALPHABET REQUIRED FOR ADDRESS
You agree to write the recipient’s address using the Latin (also called Roman) alphabet. The Service will not be able to deliver your telegram if the address is written in any other alphabet.
LOOK-UP ADDRESS CORRECTION
The Service will attempt to provide look-up and/or address correction service as requested or as necessary to effect delivery. The Service cannot guarantee the accuracy of any look-up or address correction provided.
TELEGRAMS NOT SAVED
The Service does not save, on its computer system or otherwise, any telegram or the address of any recipient.
We guarantee that your telegram to a business address in the USA will be delivered the same day if you enter and pay for it by noon (destination time). We guarantee that your telegram to a residential address in the USA will be delivered the next day if you enter and pay for it by noon (destination time). If we are not able to deliver your US telegram by these times (whichever is applicable), we will refund the price you paid.
Delivery times to non-USA destinations provided on this website are our best estimates but are not guaranteed.
Telegrams to recipients at hotels, churches, chapels, funeral homes, and other businesses are delivered to the reception desk. The Service cannot guarantee that such telegrams will then be delivered by the business’s staff to the designated individual recipient.
Telegrams to non-USA addresses are called cablegrams. Cablegrams are routed to the destination country’s local telegraph office and are usually delivered within 24 hours of being ordered. Cablegrams include telegrams to ships at sea, where the ship’s communications office is analogous to a destination country’s local telegraph office. Cablegrams are accepted at the SENDER’S RISK. The Service delivers telegrams to the destination country’s local telegraph office. Then, it is the responsibility of the destination country’s local telegraph office to handle the delivery in a timely fashion in accordance with its own regulations and procedures. Such delivery by the destination country’s local telegraph office may include postal delivery. Sometimes a copy of a telegram is posted in addition to regular delivery. There is no additional charge for such a copy. The Service does not receive confirmation of delivery to the recipient from the destination country. Instead, the Service receives only an electronic confirmation that the telegram was received by the destination’s telegraph office.
Cut-off time for same-day delivery is noon, for next-day delivery – 5 p.m. on previous business day (time at destination).
