3. Guide Protection
The Guide Protection extends coverage to shipments where the transportation is tracked through Guide. This offer is not intended to provide shipping protection to you directly, and the Guide Protection does not constitute insurance. Your election to add packages to Guide Protection is entirely optional. You have the option of obtaining protection from an alternative source or not at all.
The Guide Protection provides shipping protection for your customers’ online purchases that are lost or damaged while in transit or “porch pirated” (“porch pirated” meaning the carrier reports the status as “delivered” but the parcel has been stolen from the delivery address and reasonable measures have been taken to located it).
Guide reserves the right, at the mutual discretion of both the customer and Guide to issue a full refund, with such refund transaction to be executed through the Shopify platform.
Guide, in accordance with its discretion and adherence to the Guide guidelines, shall furnish customers with a replacement order including the cost of shipping, and such replacement shall be processed through the Shopify platform.
Claims for packages marked “delivered” yet not received and where there is no evidence of “porch piracy” must be made 5 days after the “delivery date” but no longer than 30-45 days to ensure it was not mis-delivered or easily found around the premises.”
Claims for packages presumed to be lost (where the status is not “delivered”) must be filed after 5 days (20 for international) and within 30-45 days from the last checkpoint.
