Section 6 – Third Party Services

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again.

Section 6 – Gifts

If the item was marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, you’ll receive a gift credit for the value of your return. Once the returned item is received, a gift certificate will be mailed to you.

If the item wasn’t marked as a gift when purchased, or the gift giver had the order shipped to themselves to give to you later, we will send a refund to the gift giver and he will find out about your return.

Section 7 – Shipping

To return your product, please do not send your purchase to our head office here in London. We do not accept packages at our office address, and returning to our office will delay a refund or replacement if applicable. Getaway Gear will organise for your return to be sent directly to the manufacturer from where it came from by sending you the appropriate address and returns number (RMA). Getaway Gear deal with different manufacturers, so the address given for returns will vary.

You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you receive a refund, the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund.

Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you may vary.

If you are shipping an item of high value, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We don’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item without this.

Section 1 – Introduction

Getaway Gear has taken reasonable precautions to ensure that your transactions and personal information are safe. Your transactions with Getaway Gear are protected by Comodo ECC Domain Validation Secure CA 2, SHA256 Bit SSL certificates, are currently the highest industry-standard encryption system used across the web.

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It is a system which exists partly in your Internet browser and partly on our web server computer. It encrypts (or encodes) your signals before sending them to our system using a special algorithm that is unique to Getaway Gear. We use the latest 256bit encryption technology to ensure that your information is sufficiently scrambled as it passes over the Internet.

Comodo ECC Domain Validation Secure CA 2 SSL certificates as used by Getaway Gear will trigger high security Web browsers to display a green address bar with the name of the organisation that owns the SSL Certificate and the name of the Certificate Authority that issued it. The green bar shows site visitors that the transaction is encrypted and the organization has been authenticated according to the most rigorous industry standard.

Section 2 – Data Storage

Any personal information collected by the Getaway Gear is stored on secure servers in secure facilities. Information stored on our web server computer is protected by firewalls, to prevent your data being accessed from any external computer. A restricted number of authorised staff from the Getaway Gear and Capital Designs has access to this system.

Getaway Gear is one of the few independent eCommerce companies that host our website on our own dedicated servers located in a secure datacentre. Most websites on the Internet make use of cheaper shared-hosting services to save costs. Shared hosting companies are more likely to be vulnerable to attack, have more third party staff that have access to your data, or experience other issues such as page loading speed and latency. Robert Cope, the founder of Getaway Gear, has graduated with three IT related degree’s and is expert in Advanced Networking (at the level of satellite networks), server security, Linux server systems administration, content delivery networks (CDN), all of which ensure your data is secure and ensures speedy data transmission across the Internet.

Introduction

Our goal is to offer you the best shipping options, no matter where you live. Every day, we deliver to hundreds of customers across the world, ensuring that we provide the very highest levels of responsiveness to you at all times.

The time frame for order delivery is divided into two parts:

Part 1 – Processing time

Order verification, tailoring, quality check and packaging. All orders are sent to the manufacturer for dispatch within 24 hours after the order is placed.

The products that Getaway Gear sell are brought to you from independent manufacturers that we have carefully sourced around the world.

The manufacturer will process the orders, which takes an additional 2–4 days, depending on what you have ordered.

Part 2 – Shipping time

Shipping time refers to the time it takes for items to be shipped from our source warehouse to the destination. International delivery usually takes about 7-14 days on average, but depending on where you live, customs may hold onto the package for a few days longer, which can extend the shipping time to up to 25 days in some very rare cases.

We mainly ship to the UK and USA. UK and US orders are shipped by ePacket, which provides tracking to the door in both the UK and USA and many other countries (see list in Order Tracking section). After processing and leaving the warehouse, items usually take between 7 and 14 days to arrive at their destination but can take longer from time to time.

Introduction

Our goal is to offer you the best international shipping options, that includes tracking. Every day, we deliver to hundreds of customers across the world, ensuring that we provide the very highest levels of responsiveness to you at all times.

We select our products from carefully selected independent manufacturers from across the world. Because our products are from a variety of places, we may use different shipping methods to ship each product. Our main shipping services include ePacket and DHL, both of which include tracking right to the door in the UK and USA as well as many other countries.

What are the Benefits of Using ePacket?

As the name “ePacket” suggests, the shipping service was formed for e-commerce purposes, in order to make it faster and more affordable for customers to receive their purchases from online stores and marketplaces that shipped from China and Hong Kong.

ePacket became so successful within the US that they began expanding internationally. The list of countries that have access to ePacket is constantly growing.

ePacket tracking

The ePacket delivery provides customers the option of end-to-end tracking, without paying any additional costs. This is a huge benefit for them to be able to monitor the location of the package. The ePacket can easily be tracked on official websites such as EMS and USPS.

Which countries have ePacket shipping?

There is a growing list of countries that are able to benefit from the affordable China Post’s ePacket service. Updated: December 2017.
