Payment

SkyFall Meteorites accepts only the methods of payment offered during the checkout process. The Buyer independently chooses the preferred payment method among those offered on our site. During the payment process the customer may choose between the following payment options:

  • Provided that a service against payment via credit card takes place, by submitting their credit card data, the customer grants authorization to charge the respective credit card company with the full price including posted shipping and handling fees on the due date. In this case, the charge is prompted with the order confirmation.
  • Provided that a payment takes place via PayPal, the Buyer must have a pre-existing PayPal account and must prove their identity by submitting their access data. After logging in to their PayPal account, Buyer will undergo the PayPal payment process and confirm the payment to SkyFall Meteorites.

SkyFall Meteorites may assess payment risks in order to protect SkyFall Meteorites and the Buyer. We reserve the right to contact a Buyer to verify a purchase or to verify an account prior to accepting a payment and/or prior to shipping an item. To minimize the risk that a credit, debit or charge card is being used without the Buyer’s consent, Skyfall Meteorites will validate name, address and other information supplied during the order process against appropriate third-party databases. SkyFall Meteorites is not responsible for refunding charges once they have been processed, unless in compliance with our Return & Refund Policy.

Questions and Contact information

If you would like to view, edit or delete any of your information we have accessible, or simply want more information regarding our policies email us at admin@skyfallmeteorites.com.

Returns & Refunds

Thank you for shopping at SkyFall Meteorites. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, we will gladly assist you to to either refund your purchase, provide a replacement or find some way to ensure your overall satisfaction per the conditions below. If you have any questions on how to return your item to us or you wish to discuss the issue, please do contact us. We are a family run business and we value your business.

Returns

If you have a return associated with loss or damage during transport, please review our shipping policies. For all other situations, you have 30 calendar days to return an item from the date you received it. To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. Your item must be in the original packaging, and if a specimen box or case was provided, then must be returned as well. If your item was purchased somewhere other than this website, then you must include the receipt or proof of purchase.

Refunds

Once we receive your item, we will inspect it, notify you that we have received your returned item, and will notify you on the status of your refund based on inspection results. If your return is approved, we will initiate a refund to your credit card (or original method of payment). Refunds could require 7 to 10 business days to appear on your statement depending on your credit card issuer’s policies. SkyFall Meteorites has no control over this perod of time.

Shipping

You are responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning an item. Shipping costs associated with the original purchase are nonrefundable. As such, if you receive a refund, then the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund.

Lifetime Authenticity

Working with a trusted and legitimate dealer is only the first step in securing the integrity of your collection and protecting your own reputation should you decide to sell a specimen from your collection.

  • I guarantee the authenticity of all my items, forever. For me authenticity extends beyond the normal industry definition, therefore, I will go one step further by stating I will describe specimens as accurately as possible – no overselling, no hype and let the material speak for itself.

SkyFall Meteorites offers a lifetime authenticity guarantee for all of our specimens. This guarantee is achieved through the use of a lifetime return policy should any purchased item prove to be non-authentic. Each specimen will come with a SkyFall Meteorites Certificate of Authenticity in the form of a specimen card. In order to carry forward that lifetime guarantee of authenticity, the original specimen card must always follow the specimen itself as it is the only reliable record. In the event the original specimen card is lost, we will gladly replace it free of charge as long as records can be provided establishing the specimen came from SkyFall Meteorites.

Please be aware that some unscrupulous sellers have been known to fake certificates of authenticity from trusted dealers. Therefore, if there is ever a question as to the provenance of a specimen purported to be from SkyFall Meteorites (or from the MMOmentum Meteorite Collection), please do not hesitate to contact us before you purchase an item.

Here are low resolution images of my previous and existing specimen cards.

[INSERT HERE]

Understanding the importance of provenance and authenticity is critical to establishing a collection that you can enjoy and be proud of for years to come. Please read the article Importance of Provenance & Authenticity.

Being honest and professional is only the first step in creating a trusted relationship with our clients and an enjoyable shopping experience. If you would like to learn more about our mission and values, please visit our Mission & Values page.

Optimized Shipping

SkyFall Meteorites will make every effort to ship purchased items within 2 complete business days of receipt of full payment, unless otherwise agreed upon and communicated with the Buyer. Buyer should be aware that shipping costs can represent a significant percentage of their total purchase and that shipping carriers have continued to increase their prices at a rapid pace outside of our control.  SkyFall Meteorites does not make profits from shipping and does not charge any additional costs or handling fees unless non-standard shipping arrangements are required by the Buyer.

Responsibilities & Liabilities

Buyer is responsible for all costs associated with shipping. Regarding international shipping, Buyer is responsible for any added fees, duties or taxes imposed on the shipment.

Buyer is responsible for providing accurate shipping information in English, and in some cases may be required to provide an address in the language of the destination country. Any errors in the shipping information including email addresses and phone numbers may delay shipment and even lead to loss of the shipment. In such cases, the Buyer is solely responsible for delays and losses.

SkyFall Meteorites will be held harmless and accept no liability, financial or otherwise, and Buyer agrees to not demand or expect a refund from SkyFall Meteorites either directly or through an intermediary such as, but not limited to, a credit card company, payment processor or financial institution, in the event of:

  • Loss due to incorrect delivery information provided by the Buyer, or for any fees or charges associated with the loss.
  • Buyer fails to collect the package from their country’s customs office, or a PO Box or any physical address identified as the final delivery destination.
  • Shipping carrier (such as FedEx, UPS or USPS), through its own tracking software, confirms that package has been delivered to the address provided, and Buyer claims package was stolen or accepted by a non-authorized person.
  • Package has been delivered to an institution’s or business’ mail center or central package processing center, and package fails to be delivered to the correct office or institutional address by that organization’s own mail delivery service.

Domestic & International Shipments

Domestic Shipments

Domestic shipments valued under $5000 will use Buyer’s preferred method based on their selection during Checkout. Shipments will be insured for full value and use signature confirmation.

Domestic shipments valued over $5000 will use USPS Registered Mail. Registered Mail normally takes up to 14 days to arrive due to more secure handling by the US Postal Service. Shipments will be insured for full value and include signature confirmation.

International Shipments Valued Under $2500

International shipments valued under $2500 will use Buyer’s preferred method based on their selection during Checkout. Shipments will be insured and declared for full value.

USPS limits the maximum insured value for certain countries to $200 or $600. If a Buyer chooses USPS and the item’s value exceeds that maximum insured value, then the Buyer will be contacted to change the shipping method. Any added costs due to changes will be the sole responsibility of the Buyer.

International Shipments Valued Above $2500

No item will be shipped internationally whose declared or insured value exceeds $2500. Buyer may contact SkyFall Meteorites to make alternative shipping arrangements outside the stated Shipping Policy. However, Buyer then accepts all responsibility for loss, damage and liability, and agrees to hold harmless SkyFall Meteorites and its owners for any variances outside stated Shipping Policy.

Alternative shipping methods:

Should buyer desire to use their own account for shipping or require variances to the stated Shipping Policy, please email info@skyfallmeteorites.com to discuss changes and alternatives.

Damage or Loss Incurred During Shipping:

When insured and declared for full value, SkyFall Meteorites will be responsible for any damage or loss incurred during shipping. The period covered begins when the item is received by carrier to the time when item shows as delivered by the carrier or international post office. In cases of delay or loss, Buyer will be required to inquire with their local post office or carrier to help locate a package. A refund due to an international shipping loss may not be initiated until package has spent more than 6 weeks in customs or 8 weeks total shipping time.

When package is neither insured nor declared for full value, SkyFall Meteorites will only be responsible for damage or loss incurred during shipping up to the insured amount and Buyer is responsible for all remaining costs and damages.

Delays Incurred During Shipping

SkyFall Meteorites is not responsible for any delays incurred during any aspect of shipping including but not limited to the destination country’s customs inspection period. International buyers should be aware that customs can occasionally require up to 6 weeks to clear a package before forwarding to its final delivery address.

Return Shipping for Damaged Items:

When insured and declared for full value, then Buyer must follow these steps prior to shipping any damaged item back to SkyFall Meteorites:

  1. Document damage to package before opening if possible. If package has already been opened, then pictures of package after opening are mandatory.
  2. Notify SkyFall Meteorites within 48-hours of delivery by sending an email to admin@skyfallmeteorites.com.
    • Attach pictures of damaged item and pictures of damaged packaging.
    • Await a response and approval before returning any damaged item. No returns will be refunded or accepted if Buyer does not receive prior approval from SkyFall Meteorites.
  3. After approval, Buyer will receive instructions and address where to return the item.
    • All pieces must be returned including any crumbs, fragments and display cases associated with the damaged item. In case of any discrepancy, SkyFall Meteorites will only refund Buyer for portion of item(s) that have been returned.
    • To prevent further damage, packaging materials used to ship item back must be of same or better quality as materials used to ship item to Buyer.
    • SkyFall Meteorites will also refund Buyer the postal costs associated with return within 48 hours of verified acceptance by carrier if shipped with tracking or within 48-hours of receipt of items by SkyFall Meteorites.

Unauthorized or Unsolicited Shipments:

SkyFall Meteorites accepts no responsibility for any unauthorized return or unsolicited shipment. Any loss or damage of the item(s) shipped is strictly the Sender’s responsibility, and SkyFall Meteorites and its owners are held harmless for any direct or indirect financial costs regardless of whether package was shown as delivered or not.

Securing Your Data

We are not a big box retailer, but we take security just as seriously as they do – perhaps even more so.  This site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We follow security standards, processes and procedures that are designed to oversee the effective and secure processing of your personal data data and improve your shopping experience.  Your personal data is processed by our staff in the USA. Please review the policy below carefully as well as  our Privacy Policy and Website Terms of Service.

First and foremost, SkyFall Meteorites does not retain any personally identifiable financial data such as credit card numbers. We use PayPal, a PCI-DSS compliant third-party payment gateway to process transactions, and as such the payment processor manages all your financial data.

By visiting www.skyfallmeteorites.com, you are accepting the practices and limitations described in our Privacy Policy, Security Policy and Website Terms of Service.

Last material change to the Privacy Policy was made Oct. 18, 2019.

Definitions

  1. Processing:  Any operation or set of operations which is performed on Personal Data or on sets of Personal Data.
  2. Data subject: A  natural person whose Personal Data is being Processed.
  3. Personal Data: As we have clients located around the world, SkyFall Meteorites has integrated the European Union’s  GDPR policies and requirements within the relevant aspects of its Privacy Policy and Security Policy. Furthermore, SkyFall Meteorites has adopted the GDPR definition for “Personal Data” stating:

Personal Data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Hacking & Fraud Prevention

Hosting Provider

SkyFall Meteorites uses the USA-based hosting provider called Digital Ocean. In order to provide our clients with high performance and excellent security, we are using their cloud-based Virtual Private Server, also based in the USA, with their baseline firewall called an Uncomplicated FireWall (UFW).

Internal Website Security Measures

SkyFall Meteorites employs a suite of modules, addons and features built into the website to further reduce hacking attempts and minimize fraudulent transactions.

  1. Certain countries and regions are known to present a high risk for fraud and hacking. We block the IP addresses from those areas and prevent them from ever accessing the website. Blocked IP addresses will be added or removed as needed.
  2. We integrate Google reCAPTCHA service into our forms to protect our site from spam and abuse. It uses advanced risk analysis techniques to tell humans and bots apart.
  3. We use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to keep internet connection secure and safeguarding any sensitive data that is being sent between our site and another system like for example, 1. our website and your browser or 2. our payment gateway and the payment processor. There are visual cues on your browser to verify that our website is protected by SSL. First, you can check that our complete web address starts with “https://” rather than “http://”. That extra “s” stands for secure. Second, the  secure connection is indicated by the presence of a padlock icon just to the left of the web address.
    Note that the text “Cookies (61 in use)”, represents all the cookies in use across all the websites we had open at the time of the screen capture. The actual number of cookies used by the www.skyfallmeteorites.com website will vary.
  4. We ensure that the SSL certificate is valid and encryption is in operation. To verify, a user may click on the lock symbol, then click “Certificate” to view the certificates details including the valid dates and issued party (skyfallmeteorites.com).  

Security Breach Notification

We want you to feel confident and secure in all your interactions with SkyFall Meteorites and our website. As discussed above, we are focused on securing your personal data. However, the internet is a global communications vehicle open to threats, viruses and intrusions from others and so we can never guarantee, nor should you expect, that we will be able to protect your Personal Data at all times and in all circumstances.  If you have an account with us, note that you must and are expected to keep your username and password secret.

In the unlikely event that our security is ever compromised and your personal information is accessed, SkyFall Meteorites will notify you in a timely manner, as per GDPR guidelines within 72 hours of the event being detected. As stated above, SkyFall Meteorites does not store any financial data like credit card numbers. Therefore, any potential breach of our website would be limited to non-financial Personal Data such as your name, physical address, email address, phone numbers and other Personal Data that may have been entered as part of registrations, subscriptions, and purchases.
