A. WEB ORDERING SECURITY:
Protecting your information is a priority for us. We use 128-bit
encryption Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the
security of your online order information. When you are about to
enter your credit card information, look at the bottom right corner
of the browser window for a icon of a gold lock. Also you can look
at your address bar and see if it starts with “https://”. Some
versions of browsers and some firewalls don't permit connection
through secure servers. In that case, you won't be able to connect
to the server and therefore won't be able to place an order through
an insecure connection. If you cannot access the secure server for
any reason, Please contact us to place an order, 1-866-81-STORM.
All trademarks and registered trademarks displayed on the site are

C. MAKING PURCHASES.
If you wish to purchase products offered on the site, you will be
asked to supply certain information, including but not limited to
credit card or other payment information. You agree that all
information you provide to Digital Storm will be accurate complete
and current. You agree to pay all charges incurred by authorized
users of your account and credit card or other payment mechanism at
the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. You will also
be responsible for paying any applicable taxes, and shipping and
handling charges relating to your purchases.
D. WHERE WE SHIP.
We ship to any physical address that the shipper/courier can ship to
domestically or internationally. We may accommodate (“Customer”) who
need to have an item shipped to an APO/FPO address or PO
Box depending on the circumstances. Due to the number of wrong
addresses from customers, we now charge the face value that the
shipper/courier charges us to reroute your package if you did not
enter the address correctly. This charge is anywhere from $5-$25 and
you agree if your address is wrong, Digital Storm is authorized to
charge your credit card for these fees.
E. WHEN WE SHIP.
Orders received before 3:00 PM PST are usually processed the same
day for product build. Products are shipped only after build which
can take up to 15 days on a standard basis. Your order may be
delayed if your ship to address does not match what your credit card
issuer has on their file. Some orders that are shipped from
fulfillment warehouses may require longer for the item to ship. We
may also ship the orders with multiple items from different
warehouses so it is possible you get the items on different days.
Due to the many circumstances such as unable to charge your card or
verify your address, we cannot guarantee when your order is shipped
out. Also if you choose next day air service, it does not
necessarily mean you will get it the next day from the order date,
it means that you will get it the next day from the date we ship the
order. Digital Storm reserves the right at any time after receipt of
your order to delay your order for any reason.
F. SHIPPING DELAYS.
Once an order is shipped, it is up to the shipper courier to deliver
the products; we will not be able to stop the shipment once it is
shipped. If the shipper/courier loses the package, the shipper
courier will put a tracer on the package. Tracers take around 3 days
for air packages and 7 business days for ground packages. We will
not be able to ship out replacement packages until the shipper
courier confirms that the package is lost/will not be delivered to
its destination and they will reimburse us. Without confirmation
from the shipper courier, we will not know for sure if you will get
two shipments if we ship out another one. Another delay is if there
is no one to sign for the package, every package we ship usually
requires a signature, if a package is returned to us because no one
was available to sign for it or the address was input incorrectly at
the time you enter the order, you will be charged again to ship it
out a second time.
G. PRICING AND TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS.
Due to the fast pace of the computer industry, all prices are
subject to change without notice. We make every effort to list the
most accurate, up to the minute information. Despite our efforts,
some items on our website may be miss-priced. If a product is listed
at an incorrect price due to a typographical, photographical, or
technical error or error in pricing from our vendors, Digital Storm
reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for a
product listed at the incorrect price. If your credit card has
already been charged for the incorrect price, we will immediately
refund your card and cancel your order. You may also repurchase it
for the correct price if you wish to. Due to the volatility in
pricing for computer products, we do not match competitor's pricing
and we will not offer price protection beyond the 24hours of
purchase. Example: If Intel drops the price of a processor 5 days
after your purchase, that is beyond our control and our cost for
that same processor when we shipped is also much higher than our
current selling price. We will not be able to refund the difference
since we had to purchase the processor at a much higher cost to send
it to you when you placed your order.
H. ORDER ACCEPTANCE POLICY.
Your receipt of an electronic or phone order confirmation does not
signify our acceptance of your order. Digital Storm reserves the
right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline
your order for any reason.

Digital 80GB hard drive is out of stock, Digital Storm replaces it
with a equivalent such as a Seagate 80GB hard drive. Digital Storm
either uses an equal or better product at no cost to the customer.
If you request for Digital Storm to use a specific product for your

N. REFUSED SHIPMENTS.
Any product that Digital Storm ships out to Customer comes back to
Digital Storm as refused delivery, Customer will subject to fees. A
restock fee of 15% will be applied to computer system. Also,
shipping fees sending the package to the Customer and receiving the
package back from the Customer will not be refunded.
O. CURRENT MARKET VALUE.
Since every computer system is customized to the Customer’s needs,
it becomes difficult to return computer systems for a full refund.
If you are having defective parts issues with the computer system,
we will be more than happy to offer a full refund, minus shipping
costs for the purchase price of the computer at it's current market
value. For example, if you purchased a system from Digital Storm at
the price of $1,500.00 after a length of time, you are requesting a
full refund (and you have a verified defective hardware component
such as a memory stick, etc causing stability/performance issues
within the first 30-days of original delivery) we will offer a full
refund for the hardware at it's current selling market value. If the
same system is now available for $1,200.00, Digital Storm will issue
a refund of $1,200.00 which will allow you to still purchase a
computer with the same configuration that you originally ordered at
$1,500.00. This protects the customer and Digital Storm from price
adjustments from manufactures that are out of both Digital Storm and
the customer’s control. In the end, the customer will still be able
to buy a new computer with the same specifications from the original
