Service Items - Terms & Conditions
Purchase of an item which requires a service plan constitutes agreement to pay for any recurring service fees required for the service on the device. Lightning GPS ships all items active with monthly subscriptions to begin billing 7 days after your purchase date unless otherwise stated on the product page for the device. All subscriptions will auto-renew every 30 days or at the end of your prepaid period of service.
Service will be automatically charged to the credit card used for the purchase of the product and by providing us with this card for your order you are authorizing us to charge it for the services and all amounts due. The credit card provided on your order will be set as the default card for billing on your account unless you provide us with an alternate credit card for payment of services. Lightning GPS reserves the right to charge service to any other credit card listed on your account in the event that the default card declines for any owed service fees. If we are unable to successfully charge you for services fees on your account Lightning GPS may terminate your service without notice.
All deactivation of service requests must be made over the phone by contacting our support team. Only the account holder or authorized billing contact listed on the account is approved to terminate service and Lightning GPS reserves the right to deny a service cancellation request made by any other party on behalf of the account holder. All service fees, both monthly charges and prepaid amounts are non-refundable and you will not be prorated. Service will be terminated at the end of your current billing period that you are in at the time you submit your request to us.
By purchasing this device you accept full responsibility for notifying Lightning GPS of any changes you wish to be made to your service and that you must notify Lightning GPS as per the instructions above to deactivate service if you wish to stop the recurring billing for your account. If you do not request to terminate service you will continue to be billed regardless of if the device is being used as Lightning GPS incurs costs for keeping your account active even if the device itself is not actively being used.
Credit Card Orders
Lightning GPS reserves the right to request additional information for proof of billing information. For your protection, credit card orders may be delayed while we confirm your billing information. Please be sure to provide your exact billing address and telephone number - the address and phone number your credit card company has on file for you. Incorrect information may cause a delay in processing your order.
Please be aware that once we receive credit card authorization, the funds may be reserved up to 30 days depending on your bank (please check the policy of your lending institution). If you are paying with a Debit Card, make sure you are aware of the limitations on daily withdrawals (if any) of your card.
Other Modes of Payment
Cashier's checks, bank checks, company checks, money orders, and international wire transfers are also acceptable forms of payment. If you are using one of these payment methods, an email will be sent to you when you place your order instructing you on how to complete payment for your purchase.
For Domestic & International Wire Transfers, Lightning GPS holds the right to withhold goods at our discretion or at the advisement of the Bank until the funds have cleared adn are considered in good stead or holding. Wire Transfers transactions may be subject to a processing fee.
For bank and company checks, orders will ship only after funds are released from your financial institution to BrickHouse Security. This could take up to 10-15 business days after receipt of payment by BrickHouse Security. All checks returned unpaid will be subject to a $40.00 returned check fee. Additionally, the check amount will be subject to a 20% interest rate per year, or the highest interest rate permissible by law. On orders being paid for by means other than credit card, availability of the product might change while your payment is in transit or funds are being cleared. Lightning GPS cannot reserve or guarantee continued availability.
Shipping to an Address Other Than Your Billing Address
To protect our customers from credit card fraud, we may hold an order for further verification if it is being shipped to an address different from the billing address. If the addresses are different, please contact your credit card company to add the alternate shipping address as an authorized secondary address. Your credit card company's phone number can be found on the back of your credit card. We do not ship to unverified shipping addresses as per instructions of the credit card company. This is for your protection and to help maintain a safe online shopping experience. Persons who commit fraudulent activity will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Both the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service are responsible for investigating Internet Fraud Cases. Fraudulent information will be provided to the issuing bank, shipping carriers and networked with our business partners.
Most orders we ship do not require signature on delivery. However, depending on the dollar amount of your order, it may be shipped "Signature Required" for proof of delivery. If you cannot be at the shipping location to sign for your package, please contact the shipping carrier directly with your tracking number to request that they hold the item at your local facility. You can then go pick up your package at your earliest convenience.
