Security of Your Personal Data

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. 

The security of Your Personal Data is important to Us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While We strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Your Personal Data, We cannot guarantee its absolute security.

How Long we Keep Your Personal Data

We generally keep your information as long as reasonably necessary to provide you the Services or to comply with applicable law. However, even after you deactivate your account, we can retain copies of information about you and any transactions or Services in which you may have participated for a period of time that is consistent with applicable law, applicable statute of limitations or as we believe is reasonably necessary to comply with applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, to detect or prevent fraud, to collect fees owed, to resolve disputes, to address problems with our Services, to assist with investigations, to enforce our General Terms or other applicable agreements or policies, or to take any other actions consistent with applicable law.

Rights of California Residents

Even though you use our services while acting as an employee, owner, director, officer, or contractor of a company, partnership, sole proprietor of a business, nonprofit, or government agency, if you live in California, California law gives you the right to ask if we disclose your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes (we do not disclose your personal information for others’ direct marketing purposes). It also gives you the right to ask if we sell your personal information to third parties (we do not sell your personal information and have not done so in the past), and if we did (which we don’t), you’d have the right to opt out of such sales.

Sales Tax

All items shipped within the state of California are subject to sales tax. Items shipped to most other states are exempt from sales tax. However, sales tax will be added to the order if their shipping address is in one of the states that are not exempt from sales tax.

Shipping

We currently ship items only to physical addresses within the 50 US States. We do not ship to PO boxes, US Territories or other countries. Shipping costs are calculated based on weight of the items and include Shipping, Handling and Processing fees. Customers have the option of selecting FedEx Ground, FedEx Express Saver, FedEx 2nd Day or FedEx Overnight shipping methods. 

Most orders are shipped the same day if the order is received before 3.00 PM PST Monday- Friday. The customer will receive an email with a tracking number upon shipment. If there is an unusual delay in shipping we will contact the customer.

Return

Intuit software is eligible for return or exchange within 60 days of purchase.

Equipment returns or exchanges are generally accepted within 15 or 30 days of purchase if received in the original condition with all accessories and original packaging.  

All non-defective returns are subject to a $50 restocking fee per device. In the case that the restocking fee is greater than the credit amount to be issued, a 25% restocking fee per device will be applied. The customer is responsible for initiating the return and paying related shipping charges unless there was an error on our part or the product was defective or damaged upon receipt. We recommend using a reliable carrier with tracking information. Refunds are processed net of shipping and restocking fees within one week of product receipt. The return policy for eBay and Amazon orders is 7 days from the date of purchase. A 50% restocking fee will apply. All hardware units must be in new condition. Buyer pays for return shipping. Any refunds will be adjusted accordingly.

Please refer to detail return policies of specific device suppliers:

TASQ

POS Portal

BlueStar

The return policy for Revel Systems is 30 days from the date of shipment. A 10% restocking fee will apply. All hardware units must be in new condition. 

Warranty

Most of our equipment is shipped with a manufacturer’s warranty. Most new equipment comes with a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty, refurbished equipment comes with a 3 month manufacturer’s warranty and used equipment has no warranty. However, we will repair or replace any defective product within 30 days of the sale. Most warranties are handled DIRECTLY through the manufacturer(s) after the return period. For any equipment purchases that include a merchant account or other services we established for the customer, we program and test the equipment on-site to ensure that upon receiving, it is functional and ready for use "out of the box."

Most Product Pages feature details on a product's specific warranty. If there are no warranty details for a product, then the aforementioned paragraph applies. If warranty information exists on a Product Page, that information takes precedence over Our Warranty Policy.

Children's Privacy

Our Services are general audience services not directed at children under the age of 13. If we learn that any information we collect has been provided by a child under the age of 13, we will promptly delete that information.

Links to Other Websites

Our Service may contain links to other websites that are not operated by Us. If You click on a third party link, You will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise You to review the Privacy Policy of every site You visit.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.

Environmental

Commerce Technologies believes that being Eco Friendly is every organization’s responsibility. The following are examples of how we have tried to make a difference. Our offices are painted with non-VOC paint (Volatile organic compounds). We use automatic light switches that turn off as soon as the employees leave their offices. We have instituted paper minimization practices such as rarely using post-it notes, printing only when it is absolutely necessary and using both sides of each sheet of paper. Additionally, we have paperless practices such as sending and receiving faxes electronically and the storage of all customer files electronically on our secure servers. We recycle paper, plastic and other recyclable materials. We do not use disposable utensils, plates, glasses, etc. and when possible, purchase these products in recyclable form.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may update Our Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify You of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page.
