email from UPS (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your Tracking Number so you can
track your delivery at any time. Please make sure your email spam filter is set
to accept emails from both domains "ups.com" and "aboutaustralia.com". If you
require alternative shipping arrangements please detail them in the "Comments"
section of the Delivery Information Page when you check-out and we will happily
meet with your request (additional charges may be incurred).
the event that one of the items you have ordered cannot be supplied (e.g.
sold-out) then we will contact you by phone or email to give you choices to
"substitute", "backorder" or "cancel". If we do not hear from you, then we will
ship in-stock items only and cancel the rest.
If you decide to get your
"in-stock" items shipped immediately, and then the rest "backordered" please be
aware that you will be charged additional shipping.
