Further, it is our policy to immediately remove any member from any mailing list upon the member’s request. In addition, EasyParcel Store may send newsletters and other communications to members. Newsletters will contain clear and obvious instructions for how the member can remove himself or herself from that mailing list.

We do use email as a means of receiving feedback from our members, and we encourage you to email us with your questions or comments.

Emailing tools

EasyParcel Store may provide facilities throughout the site to refer a friend to EasyParcel Store or to send references to a specific listing to a friend. You may not use the “Email this listing to a friend” service or other email forwarding services that we offer to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate our privacy policy or Terms and Conditions.
