    What if the price displayed on is different than the merchants site?

    Usually the prices listed on the pages will be accurate. Sometimes there may be hiccups in the system as retailers add new scuba gear, change the prices of diving equipment or remove dive gear from the listings. Although this is a rare occurrence, it would be best to close your browser window, and then revisit, selecting the scuba equipment you want to purchase again. If the problem persists please contact us at Pricing Inaccuracy as soon as possible so that we can investigate the matter and fix the problem quickly. Note: will not be responsible for pricing inaccuracies. If a price Deviates between our site and one of our merchants, one must assume that the price has been changed between our bi-weekly price spidering. Whether the price moves up or down there is nothing we can do to raise or lower the current pricing on our merchants sites. Although we make every effort to ensure pricing accuracy no warrantee is made or implied.

If your using programs such as 'popup dummy' these popups may not be visible to you until you disable it. there is a known problem for some netscape users with the popup windows, for this we recommend downloading and installing internet explorer.

    How can I protect myself while making online purchases?

    A lot of being a savvy online consumer is common sense, but if you are new to the web and online buying you may not know the facts. Here are things to look for, before you enter your credit card number.

    • Look for the secure transaction symbol on your screen before entering your credit card number. This will look like a padlock on the very bottom of your browser. Do not enter credit card information without seeing that symbol.
    • The use of virus protection software and a personal firewall can go a long way toward protecting your information online.
    • Use a credit card instead of a bank debit card. Credit cards generally have online credit protection.
    • When you make a purchase online, get some proof that you did. Right click on the page that shows what you ordered and your information, select print. Keep the print out and record the date and time on it. If you don't receive your ordered items, you will know when you made the purchase and the order number.
    • Try to determine if the company is genuine before ordering. Does it have brick and mortar stores? Does it have a good reputation? If you have never heard of the company, it does not necessarily mean not to order from them. But you should check them out a little further. You can contact The Better Business Bureau and The National Associations of Attorneys General online to investigate the company.

    Buying online is generally safe, cost efficient, and easy, but just as in the real world, you need to protect yourself. When you buy from a road side dealer, you are a little more careful about the value and whether you can get your money back on an item. Since, Internet stores can be put up by anyone very easily, you need to exercise the same caution.
