Hikingcamping.com reserves the right to edit or delete reviews that we consider inappropriate, irrelevant, offensive, or unhelpful. We don't want to discourage contributions, but we must ensure they're beneficial to site visitors. Most reviews make the site more useful.

Only at the 2checkout.com server is your information decrypted for order fulfillment. 2checkout.com collects your credit card information to bill you for your purchase plus shipping. After the order is charged, your credit card info is deleted.

When you order, we will attempt to authorize your credit card with your financial institution. If they're unable to authorize it, we'll send you an email stating that.
