asked for the three or four digit credit card security code from your card. This code is not stored in your account profile
and must be provided on the last page before finalizing your order. You can find this number on the front of American Express
cards or on the back of all Mastercard, Visa or Discover cards.
For more information on the security measures we have taken to protect your purchases, please read our
Security and Privacy Policies. Return to top Credit Card Storage You have the option of saving your credit card number with your
profile or entering it at checkout. Do not use spaces or hyphens when entering your card.
To prevent delays in our fullfiling your order, please be sure that the billing address on your order matches
the information on your credit card account. If you have recently moved or are unsure of your billing address, please contact your
card-issuing bank using the 800 number on the back of your credit card to confirm your address. Verifying your billing address will
prevent any unnecessary delays in our
processing your order. Return to top Sales Tax In accordance with state and local laws, purchases placed online will
be charged the applicable Santa Cruz County sales tax provided the billing address is in the state of California. The exception to this is for purchases made
online and picked up in the store. These purchases would include textbook
orders, graduation regalia and other special promotions. If you inadvertently select a shipping option for any items that are indicated as
";Pickup Only";, we will change your order's shipping preference to ";Pickup"; when we process the order and you will be
charged California state tax. All in-store purchases will be taxed using the applicable sales tax for Santa Cruz County. Return to top Gift Invoice If you are sending someone a gift, please be sure to check the box that
reads "This order is a gift". This option will be found on the first page when you log in to place your order. A gift invoice will be sent
to the recipient with the pricing information omitted. Be sure to enter an alternate
shipping address if the gift recipient's address is different than your billing/shipping address. For returns, please review the
Online Return Policy
for return and exchange guidelines. Refunds are credited to the card used to place the order.Return to top
