* It’s our mission to make sure more of your business’ parcels get delivered first time. Parcel notifications are part of our standard Courier services. We will send email delivery notifications to your customers when an email address and or mobile number is included in the ticketing tool (such as eShip). You’ll need to ensure that you get permission from your customers for us to use their data for this particular service. One way to do this is to make sure that your privacy terms allow you to give us your customers’ data for use with our parcel notification service. If you have any doubt, we encourage you to seek independent legal advice. Please be aware you will be automatically enrolled in this service unless you specifically opt out. You can opt out at any time by visiting nzpost.co.nz/parcel-notifications-opt-out or by contacting your business manager directly.
These parcel notification terms (“Terms”) apply if you are set up to have your customers receive parcel notifications from us when you send them items by relevant Courier and Express services. These Terms also apply if we receive customer information from you before you are set up. If you receive courier services from us under our standard terms, then these form part of the Service Terms - Courier Services. If you receive courier services under another agreement with us, then these terms will form part of that agreement instead.
Nature of Service
The parcel notification service lets your customers receive notifications about the status of their courier parcels via email or SMS messages from us. More detailed specifications for the service can be found in the document titled “Sales Collateral Parcel Notification Service” previously provided to you.
To be set up for the parcel notification service, you must provide us with the registration information we request from you. This may include your TPID (account number), whether your parcels are signature required or not, whether you wish to use email or SMS for your parcel notifications, whether your parcels enable adds on (like no ATL, age restricted, or dangerous goods), and the likely volume of parcel notifications we may need to send to your customers.
Parcel notifications will only be sent for parcels with a New Zealand delivery address, and only for parcels where you provide us with an email address or mobile number (as applicable) in the correct field on the delivery manifest.
You can stop using the parcel notification service whenever you like by sending us 5 business days’ written notice.
The fees for the parcel notification service are as notified to you, or published on our website, from time to time. Any change to the fees will be notified or published at least 30 days before it takes effect. We may change the fees in this way even if we follow a different process for fee changes under your other agreements with us.
It’s important that you comply with our privacy requirements when you use the parcel notification service. You agree that you will:
at all times comply with the Privacy Act 2020 (or any successor law) in relation to your use of the parcel notification service; and
obtain all necessary authorisations or consents for us to use customer information for the purpose of providing your customers with parcel notifications.
We will not use customer information for any purpose other than providing you the parcel notification service and/or any other services you obtain from us, or as otherwise permitted by the Privacy Act 2020 or our other agreements with you.
If you provide us false, incomplete or inaccurate customer information, you will reimburse us for any claims we suffer, or costs that we reasonably incur, as a result.
