When we put an item on backorder to you, we will automatically ship the item to you (via Standard Ground) when we receive the item back into our stock. Backordered items to US addresses will be shipped via Standard Ground unless you specifically request otherwise, even if the original order was shipped via Air.

For orders to be shipped out of the USA: You will have to pay the actual shipping charges for the shipment of any backordered items. We may cancel your backorder if we are unable to contact you by E-mail to ask you to authorize the shipping charges for the backordered items. Online “In Stock” status and estimated arrival dates are updated nightly. If an item sells out during the day, it will still show “In Stock” until the nightly update.
CREDIT CARDS THAT WE ACCEPT
We accept: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit cards.
CREDIT CARD FRAUD
VCShobbies has taken steps to deter credit card thieves from using stolen credit card information on our site. We request that all customers shipping to addresses other than their billing address notify their credit card company of the alternate shipping address. This process is becoming standard and credit card companies are happy to assist you. Simply call your credit card company and let them know you are placing orders via the Internet and would like to give them an alternate shipping address. Doing this will speed up the order process.
If our fraud department checks an order and the shipping address is not listed on the credit card account, the order will be delayed. An e-mail will then be sent to notify you of the delay and request you register the alternate shipping address with your credit card company. You then have 48 hours to register the alternate shipping address and notify us before we cancel the order. Again, if there is no response from you within 48 hours, we will cancel your order. Under no circumstances will Internet Hobbies ship to a third party. We can only ship to the person who is using their credit card for the purchase.
To further deter credit card fraud, VCShobbies requires a Signature Confirmation Program through the U.S. Postal Service and UPS. You will be required to sign for the package on delivery. There will be a small charge for this service. ONLY THE RECIPIENT CAN SIGN FOR THE PACKAGE.

Commitment to Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
The types of personal information we collect include all the information entered on the Order Form pages: shipping and billing name and address, email address, phone number and credit card information.
Uses of Information:
We use the information you provide when placing an order to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order or to provide services where the outside party is acting on our behalf and has no independent right to use the information we provide (i.e. a third party shipping or customer support center). We use aggregate information to better design our website and to share with potential business partners. For example, we may tell a potential partner that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of people from a certain zip code purchased certain items, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals. We may contact you from time to time regarding your order status or about products or specials that we think you may be interested in. If you do not wish to receive these notifications, we will honor your request not to send them to you. We use return email addresses from your email correspondence to us to answer the email we receive. Such addresses from your correspondence are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. Finally, we do not use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without providing you an opportunity to tell us not to allow such unrelated uses.
