TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Please read the following Terms and Conditions of Use Carefully Before using this Website.

All users of this site agree that access to and use of this site is subject to the following terms and conditions and other applicable law.

Payment Systems and Procedures

Methods of Payment Accepted

  • PayPal
  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • American Express
  • Debit Cards (deducts from your bank account)

 

COD Orders are not accepted.

 

PayPal is our primary payment system as of September 2013. You can use PayPal to pay for your order using conventional credit cards so long as you have a PayPal account.  

We’re a skater owned and run company, and we expect the vast majority of our customers to be nothing but cool and honest in their dealings with us. That being said - there are some red flags which present a high risk, so we have special procedures for them. One such situation is foreign customers wanting to pay via credit card not issued in the USA. We will accept credit cards which have been issued by banks outside of the United States PROVIDED THAT YOU CONTACT US PRIOR TO YOUR ORDER AND WE MONITOR THE ORDER PROCESS FROM START TO PAYMENT. Once funds are confirmed the product will be released to shipping immediately. Shipping fees will also vary widely for international orders, and we reserve the rights to charge overages on shipping according to the UPS rates applying.

 

Declined Payments on Credit Cards

You may need to contact your bank for additional information about declined payments. Phone number can be retrieved on back of card.

To resolve payment issues, contact your bank about:

  • Authorization to proceed with activity flagged by the bank as unexpected (including first time orders and high value purchases).
  • Daily withdrawal or purchase limits.
  • Payment authorizations, reserved funds and charges.
  • Note: Some banks have been known to hold these authorizations for 7-10 business days. Your funds have not been released to Half Dead Skateboards LLC; they are simply being held in suspense by your bank and will be returned.

AN IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT DEBIT AND CREDIT CARD 

When you place an order, an authorization is obtained from your bank. The authorization places a temporary hold on the funds. Please note, these funds have not been deducted but are being held within your account to ensure the order can be processed. This hold typically lasts from 7-10 days, depending on the policy of your bank. Your credit card will not be charged until your item(s) is shipped.

When you use your credit card, please provide your credit card billing address, if different from the shipping address, and daytime/evening phone numbers. If the billing address you give us does not match the one that is on file at the financial institution, or if authorization is not given for any reason, we reserve the right to cancel the order without notification. We cannot work out credit card problems with the financial institution; you must settle problems with them and reorder once the problem is resolved.

 

Sales Tax

Tax will be applied to your order if your shipping address is in VT. We don’t know the exact amount of tax until your order ships. For this reason, the order total in your confirmation email may not reflect the exact amount of this tax. Sales tax may be applied to shipping and handling charges.

Special Conditions for International Orders

For international orders, each customer shall be solely responsible for all customs fees, brokerage fees, or any other applicable fees assessed on orders shipped to other countries. All customers are held responsible for knowing which products are legal in your city, state, province, or country. Half Dead Skateboards LLC is not liable for any product shipped out of the country that is in violation of any law, rule or regulation. Please check with your local, state or national government to get all information regarding the products you are planning to purchase.

Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability as to Shipping Errors 

Half Dead Skateboards LLC is not perfect, and will make mistakes. Although we work very hard to prevent errors when filling orders, the fact that we employ human beings to pick, pack and ship orders makes errors unavoidable. If we do ship the wrong product to you or leave out a certain product from a package, our procedure and policy for resolving the problem is the following: Half Dead Skateboards LLC will verify that an item was left out of a package. If we clearly see that an item has been left out of the package, we will ship the item to you at no charge using the most efficient shipping method available. We would gladly upgrade your service to ensure that you receive the item by a specific date if you are willing to pay the difference in shipping costs between the most efficient shipping method and your new requested shipping method. It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to contact HDS immediately on receipt of a shipment which differs from that expected.

Half Dead Skateboards LLC (HDS)
172 N Twin Oaks Terrace

All customers that select the "Manual delivery within 30 miles of Burlington VT" shipping method, will be contacted by phone or e-mail within 24-48 hours to confirm the order delivery details and schedule.

If there is no response after 10 days, the order will be switched to the least expensive shipping method and the order will be charged accordingly. Once the shipping method has been changed and the funds have been collected, then the order will be shipped.

Half Dead Skateboards LLC uses the two (2) currently most economical sources for shipping, UPS and USPS and live shipping rates can be found upon checkout when products are added to the shopping cart. Most orders are shipped out within 24 - 48 hours upon placing an order. Under special circumstances, this time line may be increased due to special orders or inventory inconsistencies. Shipping insurance is NOT offered for any shipments. Any damage or loss to packages that occur in route to customer destinations must be dealt with directly through the carrier. The carrier is the company which assumed responsibility upon pick up of a package from Half Dead Skateboards LLC facilities. Half Dead Skateboards LLC will help in assistance of resolution but is in no means held responsible. You must purchase shipping insurance for our customer support to file a claim with the shipping company. All transit times are based off carriers estimated delivery schedules. In cases such as extreme weather, holidays, and other unforeseen reasons, normal transit times may be affected. In the unfortunate case of these circumstances, the carrier nor Half Dead Skateboards LLC can be held responsible and thus cannot offer any type of compensation.

UPS does offer tracking information on all services. The information may be delayed up to 24 hours due to the UPS updating process. All packages shipped via USPS do not have a tracking number. They only have a delivery confirmation number which is updated upon delivery. 

Additional Lead Times for International Orders

Please note that certain countries require us to physically drop off packages at the postal facility. Due to this process, it can delay an order between 5-7 days. If the tracking number provided is not updated within 2-3 days after the order is placed then this may be the case and please allow us the full 5-7 days before requesting any further information.

Pre-orders

Regarding all pre-ordered items, any order placed for such items will be processed immediately for verification of funds. Once the funds have been collected, the order will be processed and moved to a partially back ordered status. *Note* If the order contains more than just the pre-ordered item(s) then, as a courtesy, Half Dead Skateboards LLC will ship out all of the in stock items right away. This does not apply to international customers.

There is additional information related to pre-orders on the item description page. We update that information according to the manufacturer’s latest expectancy date; in most cases they are unable to have a firm release date. Based on this information we cannot be held responsible for "misleading" time frames since those change on a weekly basis.

Any orders placed with a pre-ordered item will be held and shipped complete. If for any reason you wish to cancel a pre-ordered item or an entire order with said item included, then there will be a 5% restock fee assessed on the pre-ordered item only. We are in constant contact with all of our vendors and do our best to supply all of our customers in a fair and timely manner.

Split Orders

As a courtesy to all of our customers, Half Dead Skateboards LLC offers split orders at no charge. If an order is placed that has an item(s) that is out of stock or on pre-order, then we will ship what’s available and split the balance. The remaining item(s) will ship as soon as they are released and/or reach our facility. Half Dead Skateboards LLC will pick up the cost for shipping the split order and the shipping method will be to our discretion.

Because of this process, orders can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks until they are shipped out. There are no returns, cancellations, or refunds on any SPECIAL ORDER item. If a domestic order has a SPECIAL ORDER item along with regular items then the order will be split. All of the standard items will ship out right away and the SPECIAL ORDER item will be shipped separately once it arrives.

SAFETY TIPS/WARNING

Warning: Skate safely! 

For best protection wear a safety certified helmet, as well as knee, elbow, wrist protection and flat soled shoes. Skateboarding is a dangerous activity. Avoid high speeds and going down hills. Even at low speeds, serious injury or death can occur.

Use of safety gear, taking lessons, riding responsibly within your skill level and abilities, as well as using common sense, can all reduce the risk of serious injuries or death. Know how to stop your skateboard before you start skating. Never hitch a ride from a car, bus, truck, bicycle or vehicle. Follow all traffic and pedestrian rules. Stay out of water and check all nuts and bolts, from time to time, for proper adjustment and tightness.

Skateboarding accidents happen, so you should always know what to do in emergency situations. Don't panic. Call 911 for medical assistance or an ambulance.

SAFE AND SECURE SHOPPING

Our secure server software (SSL) is the industry standard and is among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that the information cannot be read as it travels over the Internet.

PRIVACY PROTECTION FOR CHILDREN

In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we do not knowingly provide our service to persons under the age of 18.

We truly appreciate each and every customer and issue huge karma points for your support of this skater owned and run company.
