A user can become a "Registered User" of AustralianPlays.org by setting up a password protected account. You will be required to select a username and password when registering your account. Australian Plays reserves the right to refuse any user name that it decides is inappropriate. We reserve the right to refuse a Registered User Account to any person at our sole discretion.
You are responsible for actions made on the website using your password, including any products purchased or messages sent, even if these actions were not approved or contemplated by you. You are solely responsible for any loss caused by any use of your password by you, or any other person.
You agree that you will not disclose your password to any other person and you will not keep your password where it can be copied or used by anyone other than you. If you suspect someone else knows your password, you must change it immediately.
You do not have to be a Registered User of AustralianPlays.org to purchase a product.
The price you pay is fixed at the time of ordering.
You may not cancel an order once it has been submitted.
It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the product delivery address is correct. We take no responsibility for any product a customer does not receive because of errors in the delivery address given to us.
Some deliveries are made using a courier service. If the custoemer is not at the specified address to receive and sign for the parcel, a card will be left with instructions for collection or redelivery. If a response to this instruction is not received from the customer within 48 hours, a second delivery attempt will be made and AustralianPlays.org will authorise the courier to leave the parcel at the specified address without the need for signed receipt.
You acknowledge that despite our reasonable precautions, products may be listed at an incorrect price, with incorrect information or may be unavailable. This may be due to an error or similar oversight. We reserve the right to cancel an order in that event.
We may also cancel an order if we believe that it is being made in contravention of this agreement, or in contravention of the rights of any person or any law.
We may cancel an order even if it has been confirmed and the customer’s credit card or PayPal account has been charged. We reserve this right up until the time of delivery of the product to that customer. If a cancellation of this nature occurs after the customer has been charged for the product, we will immediately credit the customer’s credit card or PayPal account for the amount in question.
A confirmation of your order will be sent to you via email.
Delivery of physical goods will be made by postal service and will be paid for by the customer at the price indicated at time of purchase. A handling fee may also be charged and will vary depending upon the size, price and publisher of the product.
Delivery of electronic goods will be via a hyperlink contained within your order confirmation email. Simply click on the link or enter it into your web browser to start the download. You are licensed to print one copy only unless you have purchased an additional Copy Licence. Electronic copies should not be kept nor should you forward the link or electronic file as these activities may result in an illegal breach of copyright.
If a product is delivered to a customer, whether in electronic or printed format, that is electronically or physically damaged in some way (for example, a file does not download, or there are loose or torn pages in a book) Australian Plays will refer the matter to the publisher and refunds will be handled in accordance with their policies.
Please contact our customer service within 14 days of receiving the product to tell us about the nature of the damage and to arrange for a new product to be sent to you.

When registering an account on AustralianPlays.org, a Registered User agrees to the Terms and Conditions of our "Free Script" (or "Reward Points") program.
For the purposes of calculating and awarding free scripts, the user agrees that:
$1 = 1 point.
100 points = 1 free script credit
Free script credits may be used to redeem single scripts from the Australian Script Centre’s catalogue only. This does not include collections, anthologies or titles made available by other publishers represented on AustralianPlays.org.
Points are accrued only when the user is signed in to their AustralianPlays.org profile account. Points will not be applied for previous purchases or purchases made whilst not logged into your AustralianPlays.org profile account.
Points and free script credits accrued in your profile account have no monetary value and cannot be transferred to another profile account.
We make no representations or warranties with respect to the quality, content or suitability for any purpose of scripts provided under the program.
Fraud or abuse relating to the earning of points and/or redemption of free script credits may result in forfeiture of points and credits as well as cancellation of the profile account. If you close your AustralianPlays.org profile account or if we cancel your account with reasonable cause, any points and free script credits accrued by that account will be forfeited and will not be capable of transfer, conversion or redemption.
We may add reward benefits and make non-material changes to these terms at any time without giving prior notice to you. We may make other material changes to these terms and conditions by giving you at least 30 days notice.
