LOST OR STOLEN PACKAGES
Gray Bearded Green Beret is not responsible for stolen packages. If packages are shown as “Delivered”, and list a date and time that they were delivered, you are responsible for the safety of that package once it has been properly delivered to the address listed on your order.
Tips for avoiding package theft:
- Have your package delivered to your work.
- Have your package delivered to the home of a relative or friend that you know will be home.
- Have your package held at your local post office for pickup.
- Request that your package has signature confirmation upon delivery in your order notes.
- Ask your carrier to place package in an area out of plain view.
- Use a doorbell camera or security camera
- Be sure to check your tracking updates so you are aware of when your package is going to be delivered.
Lost packages will be reported to the shipping carrier by Gray Bearded Green Beret and a claim filed. At the conclusion of the carrier investigation USPS, UPS or FedEx, a decision will be made on how to proceed. In most cases, if your package was lost by the shipping carrier, we will replace your gear once an official determination is made by the carrier that your package was indeed lost. ***Please note that during the COVID pandemic, shipping times may be much longer than listed in some cases. This is out of our control. As of December 2020, customers are advised to choose UPS as their shipping carrier.
Event / Workshop Cancellation Policy
No refunds are available if you cancel within 60 days of the event date. Your tuition can be applied to a future class if you need to postpone 30-60 Days prior to the event date. There are no refunds or postponements inside of 30 days from the event date.
If an event is cancelled by Gray Bearded Green Beret, you will receive a full refund or have the option of attending the next event rather than a refund.
A 75% refund of tuition is available if you cancel between 60-90 days prior to the event. If you cancel with more than 90 days before the event date, you will be eligible for a tuition refund, minus a 10% cancellation fee. If you purchased an event prior to a sale, or did not realize there was a sale, we do not offer retro-active discounts for courses, so we will be unable to provide you a refund for the difference. You may not cancel your event and re-sign up to receive a new discount code either.
If you received any free gear or virtual training as part of any promotions at the time of your course signup, and you cancel within an eligible refund period, your refund will not include the price of the gear or virtual training items you received. The retail value of the free items you received will be deducted from your refund.

If GBGB cannot re-schedule the event within that time frame, attendees will be given a voucher to attend any course of their choosing within the next 12 months. If an attendee misses the course due to the inability to travel from their location due to an act of God, they will be given a voucher for a future course. If there is not a future course scheduled within 12 months, the attendee’s voucher will still be valid until such time that GBGB holds another similar event.
Live Course Cancellations may be made in writing to [email protected]. Cancellations are subject to cancellation fees. For cancellations, amounts paid, minus cancellation fees and other amounts owed, will be promptly refunded. The cancellation fees will be assessed regardless of resale of workshop spot.
