VideoReef.com is here to serve you. We have assembled a few common questions and concerns below. If you don't find what you need on this page, try Help & Info or the Policies page. Feel free to contact us directly with any questions you still have using our Feedback Form. Thank you.
QUESTION: Is Online Shopping Really Safe?
ANSWER: This is still a concern today even though there are many online sales being conducted on websites across the country. Security is an issue in any business operation. In actuality, it is generally safer to use your credit card online than in a physical store, simply because more steps are taken to safeguard and secure the data. If the website is taking advantage of SSL Secure Servers and using high-level encryption techniques, your information is quite safe. It cannot be read intransit nor accessed by outside parties. VideoReef.com uses all these systems and methods to insure the security of your transaction online. It is highly unlikely that you are taking a risk in using your credit card to place an order on our site. As Web Developers we can say that from a technical perspective the systems in use at VideoReef.com are as secure as any available online. If you do not wish to use your credit card online you can simply mail us a money order.
QUESTION: Do you Release Personal Data to Other Parties?
ANSWER: No. We do not affiliate with any other organization and do not share customer data with outside parties. We may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances in connection with an investigation of fraud, or other illegal activity. Under no other conditions will your data be released. We also will not contact you by email ourselves if you prefer. To be removed from our mailing list, just fill-in our Removal Form.

You can cancel the pre-order anytime before shipment.

If there is going to be a delay in filling your order, we will advise you soon after we receive it. You can always cancel unfilled orders that have not yet shipped.
