Terms of Use


1. General

Ship2MyID services (“Ship2MyID”, “MapMyID”, “we”, “us”, “our”) are provided by MapMyID, Inc., a Delaware Corporation, for the purpose of allowing people to converge their online and offline worlds in ways that matter. We like to call this “Two Worlds, One Me.”® Our technologies integrate Online ID’s (e.g. email address, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and more) with geographic location to enable real world transactions like sending and receiving gifts.

Our Ship2MyID product enables ecommerce transactions (“Social Commerce”) by leveraging the ability of mapping an Online ID to a physical address. With the approval of the Receiver, we eliminate the need for Senders to know a physical address by supplying the shipping information to the Merchant. However, we do not take ownership or control of money or the shipping process.

The terms “you” and/or “user” refers to the person accessing our service (the “MapMyID Service” or “Ship2MyID” product feature) or the company or organization on whose behalf a person accesses the MapMyID Services. In this Agreement, “MapMyID” means MapMyID, Inc., a Delaware Corporation with its principal address located at 4800 Patrick Henry Drive, #340, Santa Clara, CA 95054, United States.

MapMyID will then provide the Receiver’s shipping address to the Merchant. Receivers must be registered prior accepting or receiving shipments from Senders.
