Privacy Policy

Information Practices
Global Electronics Network understands that security and privacy are important to visitors to our website, our mobile app (the "Sites")and to customers shopping at our stores or otherwise interacting with Global Electronics Network (the “Services”) and we aim to keep your information secure and confidential. That is why we maintain the following standards to help protect information that personally identifies you and have described them in this Privacy Policy (the “Policy”).
By using the Sites or Services you consent to our collection and use of your information as described in this Policy.

Pricing Policy

 Why No Price?

From time to time, we enter into Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) agreements with select suppliers in order to pass along certain benefits to our customers. According to these agreements (details vary from vendor to vendor) we can sell an item for any price, but we may not advertise that item for an amount less than the Minimum Advertised Price, which is set by the supplier. In exchange, we get advance notice about newly released products and early shipments, as well as favored status with the world's best brands. While we abide by our MAP agreements, we always ensure that you pay the lowest price.

Payment Verification

Occasionally we may ask you to verify that you're the card owner or that order and ship-to information are legitimate. This verification process is for your protection, rarely delays an order, and generally requires either a simple phone call (which can be done after business hours) or fax communication.

If your order requires verification, we will advise you by phone or email. This is why it's important that you provide multiple contact phone numbers when ordering and that you keep your information current.

It is also important that you understand what we mean by bill-to information on the checkout process. The bill-to address is the address to which your bank mails your monthly credit card statement. The bill-to address you give us must agree with the address that the card-issuing bank has on file. Please be sure you provide the correct information, even if the items are to be shipped to a different location. We regret that they are even occasionally necessary, but these steps are designed to safeguard against credit card fraud and identity theft.

Sales Tax

Local Sales Tax: When an order is shipped within North Carolina State, the law requires that local sales tax be added to the order total, including any shipping charges.

Purchases in our store are subject to an 3.00% local sales tax. This tax is not a VAT and cannot be recovered by non-USA visitors when returning home.

If your order is shipping to an address in a state which requires local sales tax collection on remote purchases, or is being picked up in our Charlotte Global Electronics Network, local sales tax will be automatically collected unless the account is registered as tax-exempt. In some cases, we may provide an estimated sales tax amount until your exact location is finalized prior to order completion.

Important information for residents of Puerto Rico: we are legally required to report certain purchases to local taxation departments. Please check with your local government to see if your purchases are subject to a use tax.

Tax Exemptions

Government, education, nonprofit organizations, public charities, churches and other religious organizations usually qualify for tax-exempt purchases. Once approved, customers may make tax-exempt purchases on behalf of their organizations online. To apply for a tax-exempt account,
