Games Lost in the Mail
Your membership page shows the games that Gamehog have sent you under the “games that I’m playing” section. After you have returned a game the item is removed from this section. If you return a game but it is not removed from this section after 4 days you will contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can confirm that the game has gone astray.
When we send you a game we will email you to say it is on its way. You can also see this status from your membership page. If the game does not arrive within 4 days please email us at email@example.com so we can confirm that the game is missing and start a postal investigation if necessary.
Where you or Gamehog suspect the item has been lost in the post and you were the sender you agree to report the loss to NZPOST and to assist in any investigation. This is necessary as only the sender of an item can launch a postal inquiry. Failure to do so may result in us charging you for the lost item.
You can contact NZPOST on 0800 501 501. You should explain the circumstances and ask to start a Postal Inquiry. NZPOST will provide you with a case reference number. You agree to provide this to Gamehog and to permit Gamehog to discuss the matter with NZPOST.
Please email your NZPOST reference number to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your membership email details as well as the game you are reporting missing.

If you have lost a game and reported it to us as lost
If you have damaged a game (whether or not you reported it to us as damaged).

PO Box 36331
