           I recognize Parcel Post/US Mail claims may take over a year to resolve and hereby release Horizon Hobby, Inc.
           from liability as this is not a guaranteed shipping method.
           Therefore, in the event I request shipment via Parcel Post/US Mail, I will take full responsibility for payment to
           Horizon, even if the shipment is lost or misdirected, and understand this signed Claims Release form is required.
           I understand my account will be adjusted as soon as the claim is settled.
