|PRIORITY SERVICE GUARANTEE
UPS guarantees arrival of UPS Air Cargo Priority shipments, where such services are available. Priority guaranteed arrival times are as provided in the "Priority Confirmation Letter" for each shipment. Any form of commitment other than via the "Priority Confirmation Letter" is strictly an estimate and not a guarantee.
In the event that a UPS Air Cargo Priority shipment fails to arrive within two hours of scheduled arrival, UPS Air Cargo, at its option, may either credit or refund, all or a portion of, the shipper's Priority freight charges, according to each international region's policies, to the payor only, up to a maximum of USD $10,000, upon request subject to the following conditions:
