Claims for unreceived items
When customer claims that an item—either a book or a singly-ordered journal issue—has not been received, the claim will be honored and a replacement shipped at no charge only under these conditions: (1) sufficient time has been allowed for shipment of the item; (2) I.P. cannot provide any proof of delivery to shipping address given by the customer for that order.
Once it has been determined that a replacement item will be sent, the customer will be asked to confirm the shipping address, and then a replacement item will be shipped by UPS or FedEx, the shipment being trackable online. If the shipment’s delivery address was shipping address confirmed by the customer, and if the shipper’s records indicate that the replacement item was delivered to that address, then the claim shall be closed. Once the claim is closed, the customer will be required to purchase any replacement item and to pay for its shipment.
