Chargeback Abuse Policy
This policy affects less then 0.01% of orders but can happen. Our policy is very reasonable and certain time limits may be enforced. Purchases will appear on your credit/debit card statement as “FILTERACE” or “FAC-ADCO”. You agree not to file a credit card or debit card chargeback with regard to any purchase and instead abide by the dispute resolution procedures outlined in our store policy. In the event that you breach this agreement and file a chargeback, upon a resolution in our favor of the chargeback by either the credit card issuing bank, the credit card processor or by VISA or MASTERCARD, you agree to reimburse us for any costs incurred in researching and responding to such chargeback, including without limitation, our actual costs paid to the credit card processor or our banks, other third parties. You further agree that all dispute resolution procedures below will be deemed waived by you, and that these amounts will be added to the original amount of the order, and that this total amount will then be immediately due and payable. If your chargeback is upheld, you agree to pay all of the same costs, in addition to the original purchase price, but we will use the dispute resolution procedures to confirm and collect such amounts, further more any chargeback that is in the purchaser favor but against the store policy listed above your account will be turned over to a collection agency and credit reporting company's. This amount sent over to collection most of the time is larger then the original purchase price. This is because of fees incurred by charge back, merchant banks and credit reporting companies.
