Security:

Security at Powerkiteshop

We use a comprehensive selection of the latest security measures to make sure your credit cards details are kept secure when ordering over the internet. Our Secure Server provider has never been intercepted by a third party or lost a single order.

As soon as you enter the order process, every bit of information that is transferred between you and us is encrypted using SSL encryption. Even if data could be intercepted over the Internet it would be useless.

When you enter the secure area of our site, you will notice a a small padlock on your browser. This normally appears on the top right or bottom right of your screen.

To double check this, you can right click on the page and select 'properties' or 'view frame info' from the list which will tell you whether you are secure or not.

Also look out for the sign of a secure web page, which can be identified by the URL (the web site address). A standard page will begin with 'http://'. A SECURE web page will begin with the URL 'https://' denoting that the merchant is using a secure server for the transaction of data.

Security at Powerkiteshop Microsoft Internet Explorer:

A. https:// is shown in the address bar
B. Secure Padlock is visible

Security at Powerkiteshop

When you establish a secure connection, the downloaded web site sends a digital certificate to your web browser. When the certificate arrives, it contains a public key, which functions as a one-way encryption device.

The browser then uses this key to scramble your personal data (Credit Card Information) before sending it over the Internet. Information encrypted with the public key cannot be decrypted without the corresponding private key, which only the merchant has. Without this exclusive, private key, your personal information cannot be read.

It is a crime to purchase products with a false name or with the use of an invalid credit card. (An invalid credit card is one that is created for the sole purpose of purchasing items illegally or using a credit card or its information, via theft or unauthorized use.) It is also illegal to misuse the charge back process to take advantage of merchants. If you are a victim of fraud or if you are a perpetrator, be aware that Powerkiteshop will actively pursue and prosecute fraud offenders to the fullest extent of the law.

If however, you are still not happy with entering your details over the internet we will gladly take your order over the telephone: ORDER HOTLINE: Telephone - +44 (0)121 544 9514

VAT Refunds and B.F.P.O:

The minimum purchase value for VAT refunding is £50 excluding delivery, per order. To receive VAT refunding under B.F.P.O status, please enclose your 'certificate of entitlement' with each order. VAT Free shopping is available through Powerkiteshop for non EEC residents.

B.F.P.O orders take from 5 working days to process. All VAT orders are processed at full UK rate with the VAT refunded by the same payment method used to order, in a minimum of 30 days after posting. AMEX cards excluded.

Before we can issue a VAT refund for an order dispatched to a BFPO address which is within the EU, UK VAT legislation requires us to obtain a "certificate of entitlement" confirming that the items have been shipped to and received by a qualifying body or person as set out in paragraph 14.2 of HM Revenue and Customs Notice 725 dated December 2009.

For goods which are shipped to BFPO customers in Cyprus or Germany, Powerkiteshop will require a certificate from the person placing the order uniquely identifying the supply for which relief is claimed, and claiming entitlement as follows:

For British forces in Cyprus - under Article 14(1)(g) of EC Council Directive 77/388/EEC, or For a visiting force in Germany - under Article 15(10) of EC Council Directive 77/388/EEC.

Powerkiteshop requires this certificate in accordance with Section 14 of HM Revenue and Customs Notice 725 dated December 2009. If this certificate is not supplied, we cannot make a refund.

Please send the stamped receipt or certificate, quoting all the qualifying order numbers for which VAT has not been refunded to:

Powerkiteshop
Studio 2-4 Euro Business Park
Summerton Road
Oldbury
West Midlands
United Kingdom

If your BFPO address is outside the EU, your VAT is eligble for refund and this refund will be processed upon our checking the details of your BFPO address against the British Forces list at http://www.bfpo.mod.uk/bfponumbers_static.htm
