I agree that your question in this thread is appropriate if you are unsure. However, you may as well submit it to Waze via the email and include your question along with the link. You may get a faster official answer from that and then can post back here.

In Brazil, the company is responsible is Correios by official names and numbering of streets.
The information is sold through the site (http://www.correios.com.br/produtosaz/p ... F2A0E8DA5F) and the product name is e-DNE.

I sent an email with details to the contact email of Waze.

In Paraguay the parcel data can be found in http://www.hacienda.gov.py/web-catastro in the "Consultas ciudadanas" and "Imágenes - cartografía catastral".
To download the files you have to select save as... with the secondary mouse button because of a site error. You also have to change the file name to archivo.zip or whatever.zip to be opened correctly afterwards.
Those are AutoCAD dwg files so you will need the free viewer that can be downloaded for free from: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc ... id=9078813

The problem was I was wondering if that was an appropriate source before I go scouring for nearby sources of the same variety.

Googled on the subject and found this site:
http://www.geonames.org

It got postal code info for many countries. But Im unsure if this is the kind of info Waze want.
