In order to use the Service, you may provide your email address, the email address and/or physical address where you would like the postcard mailed. Note that we send postcards from space, not to. Postcards may be sent to any physical address on planet Earth. At this time we are not offering postcard delivery to other planets. The cost of sending a digital postcard is your email address. We will never sell your email address to a third party. The only thing we will ever do with your email address is contact you on occasion to let you know about all of the crazy things we're doing that we hope you might be interested in. You can always unsubscribe from our email list if you find this annoying. The physical postcards cost hard currency. Because of that, you must enter payment information. Guerilla Science accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards through the secure payment processing software Stripe. In addition to the security provided by this third-party provider, our website also uses a SSL certificate to protect your information.
You promise that the information that you submit is truthful and accurate. You agree not to use the email address or payment information of someone that is not you. You agree to notify Guerilla Science immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your email or payment information.

Physical postcard sales are final. Returns are not available. If you have concerns please contact [email protected]

By providing your email address in exchange for digital postcard delivery, you agree as we mentioned before, to be added to the Guerilla Science newsletter (which you can unsubscribe from anytime). We will not sell, share, or distribute your personal information to third parties. Period. We will not add the recipient of the postcard to our newsletter, unless they opt-in.
