Out of stock/Back-ordering

However, if an item that is in stock in your shopping cart when you place your order is sold out at the time your order is processed, we will notify you by e-mail or telephone to advise you of this and to give you the option of either processing a back-order on your behalf or to promptly issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of order charged.
