like, decide to continue shopping, remove an item from the

is transmitted across the Internet using SSL (Secure Socket
Layer) encryption. This industry standard method ensures that
information sent from your browser is scrambled whilst in
transit and decoded when it arrives on our server. You are far
safer using your credit card within Epic Surf than you are in a
restaurant in your local high street. We take the issue of
security very seriously and have taken every step possible to
What if I have problems ordering?
Common reasons for problems when pressing the
order button are;
i) You are using an old browser that doesn't support SSL
ii) You are browsing from behind a corporate firewall that will
not allow secure connections. Speak to the system administrator
at your office or your Internet Service Provided. They will
either rectify the problem or you will have to order from
To check, point your browser to https://www.microsoft.com/ if
you cannot connect to the Microsoft secure server it is likely
that one of the above faults apply. If you are able to connect
to Microsoft please call our credit card hotline. We will assist
you if we can.
What if I do not receive my goods?
Please wait 14 days if you are in the NZ or 28
days if you are overseas. If you do not receive your goods after
this period of time, please contact e-mail us at email@example.com
with your PayPal receipt email to hand. We will strive to
resolve the issue as soon as possible.
When is my credit card debited?
Your card will normally be debited as soon as you
place the order. If certain items in your order are out of
we have the ability to cancel
or refund your order.
What happens if my card authorisation fails?
If the authorisation fails, the most likely
explanation is that you have input your card details
incorrectly. If this happens, return to the shopping cart and
try again. Check that all the details are correct, and make any
changes necessary before proceeding. If all the details are
correct and you still fail to get an authorisation then we
advise that you contact your card issuer to establish why your
card was not authorised. If you continue to experience
difficulty please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What risks are involved in buying online?
All personal data, including your card number is
transmitted over secure connections, meaning that no-one can
eavesdrop and capture your details. In addition to this, your
card details are not viewable by us at all, they are simply
transmitted over the bank's private X25 network for
authorisation and payment transactions.
Our products are offered subject to availability.
If for any reason we cannot supply you with any part of your
order we will contact you via email or phone to advise you. We
may need to cancel or refund the item from your order, in which
case the funds will be paid directly back into your account.

us at email@example.com to arrange an exchange or refund. We
aim to replace any defective items with replacements. If this is
