If you choose a delivery address different to the invoice address (e.g. a work address where the delivery can be signed for by anyone at the address), we are not responsible if the order is signed for by someone else and it goes astray. Therefore proof of delivery to the address with a signature taken by the person who delivered the order is proof that the order has been successfully delivered.
