Secure Shopping Guarantee
With our web site, you never have to worry about your credit card safety. If unauthorized charges are made to your credit card as a result of shopping with us, you will not be held accountable. Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, federal law limits your responsibility for unauthorized charges up to $50.00. This means that your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges.

If your bank does hold you liable for any of this $50.00, we will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50.00.

We will cover this liability only if the unauthorized use of your credit card for purchases made at our web site resulted through no fault of your own.

Reporting Unauthorized Charges
In the highly unlikely event that you discover unauthorized charges on your credit card within 60 days of your purchase on our web site, here’s what to do:

  1. Promptly contact your credit card company and report the unauthorized charges. You should ask to speak to a representative of the company’s fraud department. They can inform you of the company’s fraud claim process and determine whether or not to charge you a personal liability fee.
  2. If your credit card company: (a) determines that the charges were fraudulent charges resulting from your online purchase with us, and (b) holds you liable for any of the unauthorized charges, contact us immediately. For your convenience, you can contact us by email or by postal mail. In order to help you, we will need the following information:

  3. Your name
  4. Daytime phone number
  5. Billing address
  6. A copy of the credit card statement in question (please circle fraud charges)
  7. Proof of your credit card company’s fraud determination and liability fee

  10. We’ll protect you. For security purposes, our fraud department will confirm your claim. If the fraudulent charges resulted through no fault of your own, we will then credit your credit card up to a maximum of $50 and send you a letter that confirms our reimbursement.

Protecting you against fraud
