- Our web servers are authenticated and secured so you can trust that you are doing business with United Uniform. We protect the security of credit card and other sensitive information you provide online by using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) security software that encrypts such information. The security features are automatic. For example, once you've clicked the CHECKOUT button on the Shopping Cart page, your browser looks for a digital certificate to confirm that it is communicating with United Uniform.com. Once a positive ID is made, your order continues. For your security, the verification process happens in the background every time you place an order on our site.

- You can still order from us even if you're not in the Public Safety industry. Of course, certain products require official authorization, but many of our products, such as flashlights, apparel, knives, multi-tools, etc. can be purchased by the general public.
If an item is on backorder, will I be charged a again for shipping the backorder?
- Shipping charges are calculated based on the total of your order, regardless of whether your order ships complete or in multiple shipments. If your order splits in partial shipments, each shipment will include a shipping and handling charge that is proportional to the value of the shipment. If you add up all the partial shipping charges, you will come up with the total quoted originally. In no case will your shipping charges increase due to backorder or drop ship items.
