Terms of Use

Please, read these Terms of Use ("Terms", "Terms of Use") carefully before using the http://www.5280scuba.com website and the 5280 Scuba Inc. mobile application (the "Service") operated by 5280 Scuba Inc.


Before we begin. If you are here, then you are most likely a lover of the sea. A scuba diver or snorkeler. We love that about you. And most likely you are a reasonable wonderful Human Being. Us too. We are trying to make your life better with this site. Our heart is in the right place and our intentions are true. So, we ask for common courtesy when using our site. Others may see your comments. We might mess up an order from time to time, sorry. And you know, you might just fall victim to the gremlins in the system from time to time. It can be frustrating, for us magnified.  We promise to do everything we can to make it right.


What is right? Please know that we trust us, so we will be the judge of what is right.  We can’t leave it to you because you will always be right. And if your right doesn’t match our right then you might just get all angry and nasty about it. That is why we have these Terms of Use in the first place.  


There are mean people out there. And boy we know that a lot of Americans feel entitled and the customer is always right, right?  Nope, we see it all. Package arrives 1 day late and they are screaming how they want their money back. That is not being reasonable. And if you can believe it there are unreasonable people out there.  Your purchase is appreciated but it does not enslave us to crazy stuff.  We will be courteous, kind, and do our job as best we can.

However, if you:


             Are known in your sphere as mean

             Have ever been escorted out of a business by security

             Are off your meds

             Are an attorney looking for a fight

             Are a negative person

             Have ever sued a retailer for any reason

             Have a victim mentality

You need an account to use some of our services, like loyalty points, wish list and notifications. To keep your account safe, don’t:

  • Tell anyone your username or password
  • Give us false information
  • Try to log in as someone else

What we do with your information

  • Provide you with services, recommendations, notifications and other features
  • Improve our existing services and come up with new ones.
  • It is never sold, shared, rented, or distributed.


We take great care to make our content and services the best they can be. We subscribe to internet best practices for security. But there are hacker bastards out there that just want to mess with good people. So, if something does go wrong we’re not liable for anything that happens if:

  • You rely on advice, data, commentary, opinions or any other content

  • Factory delays interfere with our shipping schedule.

This applies to sites we link to as well as our content and services.


External links

We sometimes link to non- 5280 Scuba Inc. sites. And we sometimes put our services on them – when you connect with us on social media, for example.


A few things to bear in mind:

     a. We don’t endorse the sites we link to.

     b. We’re not responsible for their content or liable for anything that happens to you if you

         use them.

     c. If you or anyone else shares something containing a link, we’re not responsible for

        anything on the site it links to.

     d. External sites usually have their own terms of use.

Final stuff

A quick recap, a few extra-legal bits and we’re done:

If you use a service on behalf of a business, that business agrees to these terms.             So, your business must stick to these terms if you use a service...

  • substantially to do your job – as an employee, contractor or consultant
  • for commercial purposes – to make a profit or
  • for educational, non-profit, charitable or government uses.

As we said earlier, (as if saying it again will change anything) read these terms before using our services. When you use our services and content, you’re agreeing to:

  • These terms of use
  • Our privacy and cookies policy
  • Any other terms we’ve let you know about.

And those things replace all previous agreements between you and us about using our services or content.

This is a contract between you and us. No one else has any rights to enforce its terms.

 American law governs these terms, and only American courts can make judgments about them.


Please do read the fine print.
