1) If you are unsure about a products suitability for a particular task or circumstance, please ring/email an enquiry to us before purchasing, we will be happy to provide expert, impartial advice, to assist you in selecting the most suitable unit.
2) We welcome and value telephone enquiries regarding our night vision products, however we do not accept credit card numbers/orders by telephone. We use "Worldpay" as our payment processor - their network offers the state of the art in credit card security, and is streets ahead of the very insecure practice of giving personal details over the phone.
3) Credit card payments are accepted for retail customer orders only, and are not accepted for trade orders.
4) Goods will only be dispatched by us once payment has been received and verified. Debits appear on your Credit/Debit Card statement attributed to Worldpay-CAMO Surveillance Equipment.
5) Where an attempted card transaction is suspected of being fraudulent, or fails the numerous anti-fraud criteria in use by our card processing service, we reserve the right not to process the order, or any order from that particular buyer/IP address. Due to the high frequency of fraud among credit card orders, additional proof of card ownership may be required. This procedure is routine on orders exceeding GBP1000.00, but we reserve the right to request supporting documents on any order - genuine purchasers do not mind these procedures, which protect all of us. Credit Card Fraudsters beware - all details of attempted fraudulent transactions are retained as evidence for civil/criminal prosecution.
6) This company has a strict code of customer confidentiality - NO customer/order details are disclosed to any third party. The exception to this is where said details have been used in an attempt to defraud, in which case term (5) applies.
7) Orders normally take 3-5 working days from day of order before arriving with the customer (depending on delivery address). You will be advised by return of e-mail, on ordering, if any delays are anticipated with your order, at which point we will proceed with your order on the basis of the longer delivery schedule, or cancel your order with our regrets and apologies.
8) We do not ship substitute items, so if a product that you have ordered inadvertently happens to be out of stock, we will cancel your order and ask you to re-submit your order at a later date when the item returns into stock. In the event of the customer receiving a wrong item (i.e. an item that the customer did not order, due to an error on our part) we will cover the cost of the return shipping and replace it with the correct item.
