(b) where the Parcel is not collected by you at the ParcelPoint Agent location within 7 calendar days following the date when you are notified that the Parcel is available for collection by you at a ParcelPoint Agent location, then transactions will incur late collection fees (being the original fee per each additional week late).

7.2.6 If you or the Recipient (as the context permits) elect, during the booking process, for a Parcel to be delivered to an Eligible Address other than a ParcelPoint Agent:

(a) If the booking states ‘Signature on Delivery’, then:

(i) the Recipient, or another person present at the nominated delivery address, will need to physically accept and sign for the Parcel; and

(ii) if signature is not able to be obtained, or the address or location is otherwise unattended, then a calling card will be left for the Recipient, providing instructions to collect the Parcel from a nominated location or to arrange a re-delivery. In these circumstances:

(A) if the Parcel is not successfully collected or re-delivered within 7 calendar days of the date when the calling card was left or such other time period as advised on the calling card, then ParcelPoint may return the Parcel to the original ParcelPoint Retailer or other Sender, as applicable, or abandon or dispose of it, or give it to charity, with or without notice; and

(B) additional fees may apply if more than one re-delivery is required, or if delivery to an alternative address or location is required

(b) If the booking states ‘Authority to Leave’ and the address or location is, or appears to be, otherwise unattended, then the Parcel may be left at the nominated delivery address (eg at the doorstep or entrance). In these circumstances, ParcelPoint takes no responsibility for loss or damage to, or theft of, the Parcel, nor shall ParcelPoint be liable for any losses, costs or expenses arising therefrom.

(c) If the Parcel is refused or undeliverable, then ParcelPoint may return the Parcel to the original ParcelPoint Retailer or other Sender, as applicable, or abandon or dispose of it, or give it to charity, with or without notice.

whether or not ParcelPoint has inspected the Parcel, goods or items.
