Please take some time to look at the following information. Should you have any queries please feel free to contact us.
At PipingPal.com we treat your personal information and the security around that very seriously. Security is probably one of the most significant concerns for both the shopper and the retailer during an online transaction. In reality an online transaction is probably more secure than a card transaction in a shop or conducted over the telephone or by fax, as the information transmitted online is highly encrypted using complicated logarithm combinations.
PipingPal.com use 128 bit encryption with our online payment systems. We also use a combination of both established and innovative techniques to ensure the security and integrity of all sensitive data.
Our shoppers are also protected from fraudulent use of their card in a "card not present" environment, by their card issuers. The card issuer provides the right for shoppers to dispute a transaction if the goods/services did not arrive or if the card was used fraudulently.
Shipping & Returns
Dealing with a variety of postal systems around the world can at times prove testing. For this reason all orders are recommended to use a recorded or insured mail service.
These services do have a higher cost than standard mail services, but orders can either be tracked or are insured to the value of the delivered items. This way you the shopper can be guaranteed of receiving your purchased products usually with a prompt postal service.
We do however offer you two forms of shipping rates and the decision is left up to you which service you would like to use. It should be noted that orders cannot be re-sent (at the expense of PipingPal.com) that do not arrive at their intended destination when the standard mail service has been chosen.
All UK orders will be shipped by Royal Mail's First Class or Special Delivery/Recorded Mail Service, and all overseas orders International Airmail and UPS.
Shipping rates will be calculated automatically on orders. This will take into account, your total order weight, the value of items, the shoppers' desired shipping option and the destination the order is being sent to.
