Welcome to BearGifts4U.com ("Website")! We are an Illinois based company. Our offices are in a far western suburb of Chicago, Saint Charles. We are very pleased to have you as a customer.
Please take a few minutes to review these Terms and Conditions. Your purchase of products from us constitutes your agreement to follow and be bound by them.
These Terms and Conditions May Change
BearGifts4U.Com reserves the right to update or modify these Terms and Conditions at any time without prior notice. For this reason, we encourage you to review them whenever you purchase products from us or use our Website.
Shipping and Processing Fees
Our shipping and processing charges are intended to compensate our company for the cost of processing your order, handling and packing the products you purchase and delivering them to you. Most purchases are shipped from our state-of-the art distribution center in Joliet, IL to arrive within five business days of receipt of the order. Orders received by 2 p.m. CST (Monday - Friday), will be processed and shipped the same day.
Due to our unique product designs that include an 18" helium filled Mylar balloon in each gift box, we ship FedEx Ground only. We do not ship to P.O. Boxes or APO addresses. We regret that we cannot ship to foreign countries.
When shipping to hospitals, please allow extra time for the package to be routed through their various departments, or, if delivery is uncertain, consider instead having us ship it to the patients home or place of discharge. Additional information follows in the section, SHIPPING COSTS & PROCESSING INFORMATION.

BearGifts4U.com is committed to reasonably protecting our customers' privacy. We handle all information - including customer accounts, transactions, and correspondence - with discretion in order that we may provide our customers a safe and secure online experience.
Some function s and services we offer through our website require that you provide personal information. For example, when you order a product, we need your name, postal and/or e-mail address, and credit card information. We realize that you submit personal information to us in confidence, with the expectation that we will not abuse your trust. All personal information you submit will be used by us only for our own marketing and customer service purposes.

Marketing and Promotions
When you order products from us we assume you intend to become a repeat customer. We therefore add your name and e-mail address to our marketing database so that we can occasionally send you messages about our holiday specials and new products. We also assume that people to whom you send our products will want to order from us, and we add their contact information to our marketing database, too.
We use credit card numbers submitted to us through our website for payment purposes only and not for marketing purposes. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to protect your credit card number, name and address. An unbroken key or closed lock (depending on your browser, look at the lower right-hand corner of your browser window) indicates that the SSL is active.
