If you return the equipment and the measuring device, you either pack them properly and send them back to us in the return box and with the label we provide, or you pass them on to a service carrier that we have indicated to pick them up and send them to us. If you are not doing any of the things listed in focus (i), ii) or (iii) above, you are considered agreed to extend the term of the lease from one month to the next. You can cancel automatic extensions at any time by communicating to us in writing for 60 days or by creating a www.pitneybowes.com/ca/en/support/topics/account/how-to-submit-a-service-request-using-my-account.html request (follow the instructions in „How to Create a Request“).
