What about security?
HP is committed to ensuring the security of your information. HP Store safeguards your information using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol, the most widely accepted Internet encryption standard. This system protects your private information while it is transferred from your computer's server to ours.
As you navigate the site, you may receive security warning messages, depending on your browser settings. These messages are simply letting you know that you're entering or leaving a secure area.
What do you do with my personal information?
HP is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy. Here's how HP Store uses the information in your profile:

We use your e-mail address to send you confirmation of your order and confirmation of shipment and to sign you in (along with your password)
Phone and Fax Numbers:
We keep your telephone and fax numbers on file to notify you in case of a problem with your order. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and fraud protection, and are not retained for other purposes.
What are "Clearance items" products?

How long is a quote valid?
Any quotation provided by HP will be valid for the duration stated in the quotation. If no duration is stated, such quotation will be valid for 48 hours subject to product availability.
What happens if one of the products I ordered is out of stock?
We'll notify you if you order a product that is out of stock and offer you a substitute product similar in functionality and specifications to the product originally ordered. You'll be given the opportunity to accept or reject the substitute product and price. The price for this new product may differ from the price of the product you originally ordered.
Clearance items are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. If you order an item from our Clearance items that we've run out of stock on, no substitution will be offered.

Here's your step-by-step guide as to what to expect when you place an order with the HP Online Store:
Please note: We will send the below email notifications to your registered email address (if you have an account with us) or to the email address you specified when placing your order.

Why is my HP order charged twice?
Your credit card will be charged only once and only after your order ships.
Before your order ships, you will notice a pre-authorization hold in the amount of your order on your credit card statement. The pre-authorization validates the credit card number, status, available credit and billing information to ensure that it matches exactly what the bank or credit card company has on file. At this point your card hasn't been charged yet.
Once an authorization is received, you may notice a decrease in your available credit limit. Your bank or credit card company may put a hold on this dollar amount for a specified period of time. Each financial institution has a different policy on the time period of authorization holds. Please keep in mind that depending upon your bank's timeframe, the funds can re-appear immediately or require a few days prior to release.
If you'd like to find out more about the timeframe you can expect, we recommend getting in touch with your bank or credit card company.
Can I change or add products to my recent order?
Once your order is placed, it cannot be changed. We are unable to change or add to the order no matter how small the change may be.
- If a change is necessary, you will need to cancel the current order and place a new order – see detailed cancellation instructions below. Please wait for us to confirm the order cancellation was successful, as we have a limited amount of time to cancel the order before it ships. Although we will try our best to assist you we cannot guarantee we will be able to cancel your order in time.
Can I edit my current order (order details, shipping/billing information, email, etc.)?
- Once your order is placed, it cannot be edited. If a change is necessary, you will need to cancel the current order and place a new order – see detailed cancellation instructions below. Please wait for us to confirm the order cancellation was successful, as we have a limited amount of time to cancel the order before it ships. Although we will try our best to assist you we cannot guarantee we will be able to cancel your order in time.
- Delivery address changes may be possible without order cancellation and replacement but are subject to timing and security verification. Please contact us as soon as possible for further advice.

Why would I receive a ‘Delivery Notice’ that directs me to pick-up my order at a location other than my delivery address?
If our carrier partners cannot deliver your order as expected to the designated delivery address, your package(s) will be sent to a pickup location (ex. carrier shipping centre or post office).
If this occurs, as per carrier policy, they will leave a ‘Delivery Notice’ at your address, providing you with directions on where to pick-up your package(s).
Situations where a pick-up may be required include, but are not solely restricted to, the following:
- The package(s) cannot be accommodated by the delivery location (ex. the community mailbox is full or the package is too large)
- There is no one available to receive the package(s) and there is no secure location in which to leave it
If you are required to pick-up your package(s), please arrive at the designated pick-up location with the following information:
- Delivery Notice card
- Government issued photo ID
How do I use an e-coupon?
To redeem e-coupons, simply add the product you wish to order to your shopping cart, proceed to checkout and enter the e-coupon code in the E-coupon code section. You must click APPLY CODE to have your e-coupon validated.
What if my e-coupon doesn't work?
If your e-coupon code is rejected, there may be several reasons:
- You have entered the e-coupon code incorrectly. Please check the code and re-enter the e-coupon code without any spaces in the e-coupon field during your order checkout, as it cannot be applied later.
- You are trying to apply a discount to a product not included in the e-coupon offer. E-coupon codes may only be valid in specific instances (as outlined in the e-coupon terms and conditions).
- Your e-coupon has expired. All Voucher Codes will have an expiration date. Please check the instructions given to you along with the e-coupon code.
- Your e-coupon requires a minimum purchase which has not been met. E-coupons can only be applied to an order $0.01 in excess of coupon value e.g. if you have e-coupon valued at $20.00 then this can be applied to orders above $20.01 or may require a minimum dollar value to activate. Please check the instructions given to you along with the e-coupon code.
- Only one e-coupon code can be used per purchase
If our site doesn't accept your e-coupon, and you believe you have a valid coupon, please contact us at 1-877-231-4351 for assistance.
Can I use an e-coupon if I place an order by phone?
Yes, HP Store e-coupons are valid for purchases made online or by phone. You'll need to provide your e-coupon code to the sales associate before your order is submitted in order to receive your discount.
