FAQs

Who is Ghost Prepper?

Ghost Prepper is a privacy-conscious e-commerce company focused on delivering high-quality survival gear.  Our goal is to maintain the anonymity of our customers to allow you to build and maintain your disaster survival stash privately.

 

Why should I care about privacy?

As technology continues to shape the world we hear more and more about incidents of hacking, government snooping, mass collection and sale of customer data, and social media leaks that continue to make our lives less and less private.  Some people, including us, see this as an extreme violation of our inherent rights.  Not only that, but many preppers choose to build their supply stash in secret, to prevent others from flocking to them and requesting aid in the event of a disaster.  While this may seem somewhat selfish, it is a necessary fact that one must take care of themselves and their family first, not rely on others to do so for them.

 

How does Ghost Prepper ensure my privacy?

We believe that what you purchase online is your business and nobody else’s.  We will never share any information with any third party that you choose to share with us to acquire your goods.  We will not maintain your purchase history beyond 45 days, nor use such data for targeted marketing.  You are not required to create an account with Ghost Prepper, or even provide us with an e-mail address if you choose not to.  All we need is a place to ship your items.  If you pay with an anonymous cryptocurrency wallet, nothing else can be traced back to you.

 

What is cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrency is, at its most basic, “digital money”.  The most popular cryptocurrency is Bitcoin, but there are many other viable currencies out there being used every single day.  While cryptocurrency is inherently complex, more and more companies are establishing to make it easier and more user-friendly than ever.  Please visit our blog for more information on cryptocurrency, currency “wallets”, and how to acquire and spend cryptocurrency anonymously.

 

Are my purchases completely anonymous?

Total anonymity requires a multitude of careful precautions around your computer, your network, how you acquire cryptocurrency, anonymous email, VPN, and many other variables.  While we can’t guarantee every link in this chain to keep you anonymous, what we can do is assure you that we will do everything within our power to maintain the privacy of your purchases.  This includes enabling anonymous payment methods such as cryptocurrency, no collection of personal data beyond a shipping address, and deletion of the limited data we do collect after 45 days.  We believe in your right to privacy and will fight to protect it at all costs.

 

How do you ship items and maintain the privacy of my purchases?

No payment or personal information, beyond a shipping address, is passed on to our business partners when items are shipped.

How do I return an item for refund if I’ve paid with cryptocurrency?

A return for an item paid with cryptocurrency works just like any other return.  Once we’ve received and processed your return, we will credit back the current US dollar equivalent exchange rate amount of cryptocurrency to the original payment wallet address.  Note that this could be more or less cryptocurrency than you originally sent, based on the current exchange rate.  See our return policy for more details.
