Consent to Communications from us
By placing an order with us, whether as a registered customer or guest, you agree that we may collect, use, disclose, and keep Personal Information for the purposes of fulfilling your order. The use of Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, sending emails to keep you informed of the status of your order. You might also be prompted to subscribe to our newsletters and special offers; the decision for opting in or opting out to receive these newsletters is entirely up to your discretion.
We respect your rights to not receive these communications and if you advise us of this we will adjust your account accordingly. Every newsletter we send includes a clear link to unsubscribe in the footer and once unsubscribed you will no longer receive them unless you re-subscribe at a later date.
Privacy & Security of Personal Information
All Personal Information submitted to Empire Cycles is secured using the latest Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) premium encryption technology.
Credit card payments are processed through Stripe; Empire Cycles does not store any of your credit card or financial information on our servers, therefore ensuring the highest level of protection for you.
We collect information from buyers on our site during online purchasing, to enable a faster and more streamlined purchasing experience. The personal information we collect will typically be used to assist Empire Cycles in fulfilling your order as quickly as possible, as well as offer you special promotional offers and exciting product opportunities from time to time.
Payment & Shipping
All purchases must be paid in full prior to shipping and we reserve the right to cancel any orders in the event we suspect the payment method to be fraudulent.
To protect credit card holders from fraud we use state of the art fraud prevention systems. If your selected payment type triggers one of these systems it may put your order on hold and instigate a verification system to confirm the validity of your order. As part of these systems we may make a small charge to the credit card used to pay for your order, which is immediately refunded. We will then ask you to supply details of this transaction to verify you are the true card account holder.
By purchasing from Empire Cycles you are entering into a contract and may not rescind payment via Credit Card charge back in the event of late or damaged delivery.
While we make every effort to deliver all items to you quickly we are not responsible for delays caused by Australia Post or other couriers we may use.
We make all efforts to ensure that goods are well packaged so they arrive undamaged. Please contact our customer service team if you have any delivery problems or if the package has been damaged in transit
