Welcome to The Parcel website ("the Microsite") which is owned, controlled and operated by Pacific Magazines Pty Limited (ABN 16 097 410 896) ("Pacific").
Purchase and pricing of The Parcel
In addition to the terms which relate to your use of the Microsite, the following terms relate to your purchase of The Parcel.
When you place your order to purchase The Parcel, the terms with respect to ordering and delivery are governed by these terms.
You must be over 15 to purchase one edition or subscribe to purchase several editions of The Parcel, so if you are under 15 years old, ask your parent or guardian to buy or subscribe for you.
When you purchase one edition or subscribe to purchase several editions of “The Parcel”, the price will cover the cost of the Parcel and all delivery costs within Australia.
All orders placed on this Microsite are quoted and charged in Australian dollars and, unless we state otherwise, all prices are inclusive of GST. Our product prices are set out on www.theparcel.com.au and we may update them from time to time and we do not provide price protection nor refunds in the event of a price change or promotional offering. In the case where the product you order is sold out we will offer a full refund.
You may purchase a subscription to The Parcel in four ways as set out below:
You may purchase one edition of The Parcel and payment must be made in full at the time of your order, via the Subscribe Today website (www.subscribetoday.com.au). We only accept payment by credit card and accept Visa, Master Card, American Express and Diners Club.
You may purchase an annual subscription to The Parcel. For annual subscriptions payment must be made in full at the time of your order, via the Subscribe Today website (www.subscribetoday.com.au). We only accept payment by credit card and accept Visa, Master Card, American Express and Diners Club. Note: Annual subscriptions do not renew automatically at the end of your subscription term.
You may purchase a re-occurring period-by-period subscription to The Parcel. If you choose this option, Subscribe Today will setup a re-occurring payment profile to deduct future periodic subscription fees. The payments will continue unless you decide to cancel. Please see below for further details on cancelling.
You may also purchase a bundle containing an annual subscription to The Parcel along with an annual subscription to the Pacific-nominated magazine (such bundled subscription to commence only once your current subscription has expired).
The Parcel will be posted by a third party carrier. Please see the Key Dates Schedule on the website for estimated delivery times.
It is vital that the details that you give us are correct. Pacific is not liable for any errors that you make. Also, you must ensure that Pacific has your new address details if you move.
Refunds and returns
If you are not satisfied with The Parcel edition you have received, you can return your Parcel in its original condition to us within 14 days of the date on the invoice for a full refund upon approval by us. We will not refund in the event any products within the Parcel have been opened or used.
All products are checked for quality before dispatch and while we try our best to ensure that the product is delivered to you in perfect condition, the product may be damaged in the delivery process. Should this happen you can return the damaged items and we will re-send the product and pay for the return and additional postage charges.
