Safe and Secure Ordering
NoTubes.com is built around a fully secure shopping cart and account management system. Our site relies on a secure socket layer (SSL) and offers industry-standard encryption to protect all transactions and keep all personal information secure. Our secure environment means information can be entered safely and cannot be intercepted. For security reasons, we do not store complete credit card numbers. The payment gateways at NoTubes.com adhere to the standards set forth by the PCI Security Standards Council, a group made up of brands including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover that seeks to formalize best practices for online payments.
What information do we collect, where does it go, and what do we do with it?
“Personal information” refers to information voluntarily submitted to us that can identify you personally. The best example of this is the contact information submitted when placing an order, including your name, e-mail address and other information unique to you. This personal information may also include site usage and navigation, product warranty registration information, product reviews, and payment information from which one can identify an individual, either directly or indirectly.
When you place an order from our NoTubes.com site, the personal information that you provide to us is collected, including name, address, and email address. When you visit our site, we automatically receive an internet protocol address (or IP) from your computer which communicates information, including your type of operating system and browser.
The information you provide during the ordering process is used to notify you of the progress of your order, and to contact you if we have any questions about your order. Users who register on our site can view and edit personal account information. Customers are provided an opportunity to sign up for our email marketing newsletter. If you give us permission to send you emails, you may receive emails with information about our products, sales, company news, and other updates, and each email will include a visible link at the bottom that allows you to unsubscribe so that you no longer receive these communications.
In addition to creating a user account for shopping our site, you may also use our site to communicate specific information to us, including product registration, survey information, and product reviews.
Who Can See Your Information and How Long is it Stored?
Information you provide to us can be viewed by our customer service agents and our website administrators, with the exception of your full credit card number, which is not stored in our system and is not viewable. During the order process on our site, credit card numbers are encrypted and are not visible to any company employee. Communications with us, including product reviews and form information and the metadata associated with this information is retained indefinitely.

While our inventory is constantly updated, on occasion it is possible for us to be oversold on an item. It is our policy to contact the customer immediately in the event of an inventory issue and work to ensure orders are received as quickly as possible. When an item is listed as currently out of stock, we provide the option to enter an email address in order to receive a notification when that item returns to inventory. Please note that, on rare occasions, many people may be watching a popular product, and it may sell out again shortly after arriving back in inventory, becoming unavailable again quickly, even after triggering a notification of availability and sending an email alert that more are in stock. We work hard to keep every product in stock at all times and make products available as soon as possible.

Riding a bike is an inherently dangerous activity, particularly the way some of you ride. We built this company for all of you, and we want you to stick around to hopefully share a ride with us some day. Please use caution and good judgment out there, use lighting and reflectors when necessary to increase your visibility, and of course always wear a helmet. Seriously, even just riding around the block. Some of our worst bails were within sight of our garages.
