DVDs purchased through the Lumigrate website are delivered to customers using United Parcel Service (UPS) and the United States Postal Service (USPS).  Customers are responsible for paying shipping cost as part of the total cost of their order.

At the time of checkout, customers are requested to enter their delivery postal code.  The postal code is then used to calculate the shipping cost, by measuring the distance between Lumigrate's "ship from" postal code (81505) and the customer's "ship to" postal code.  Once the shipping cost calculation is complete, the shipping total is automatically added as a separate line item on the order.  Shipping charges do not apply to orders which only consist of seminars to be downloaded.

The current shipping options available to our customers are as follows:

  • UPS
    • UPS Ground
    • UPS Standard
    • UPS Next Day Air
  • USPS - Domestic
    • USPS First-Class Parcel
    • USPS Priority Mail
    • USPS Parcel Post
  • USPS - International
    • First Class Mail International Parcel
    • Priority Mail International

Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at the Site, and the web sites visited just before and just after the Site.

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a web site. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by your web browser on your hard drive. Cookies can remember what information you access on one web page to simplify your subsequent interactions with that Web site or to use the information to streamline your interactions on related Web pages.

Occasionally we have visitors mention they are having issues downloading seminar videos.  These issues are not specific to any particular video, and most often the problems have to do with browser issues, computer processing/memory, or speed of Internet connection. The current videos provide a rich viewing experience with high-quality video, but the size of the videos requires a significant amount of time to download the files, which causes issues for some visitors.

The problem can typically be solved by performing one or more of the following:

  • Clear the browser cache.  Some information in the cache may have corrupted the video download.
  • Close all instances of the browser and restart.  Sometimes the video download will end because the browser is using too much computer memory.  This might be because the video is competing for memory with another web page, or multiple high-bandwidth processes are running in multiple windows at the same time.
  • Avoid using "embedded" browsers, such as the browser which comes with AOL.  Instead, access the Internet using a fully functional browser such as Firefox or Internet Explorer.
  • Reboot the computer.  Sometimes a program running in the operating system might be causing a conflict with the download.
  • Attempt to perform the download with a different Internet connection.  There are situations where a user's Internet connection is either having problems, or just not powerful enough to download such large files.  Often it is then possible to successfully download the video by taking a laptop computer to a coffee shop and connecting to the shop's wireless Internet connection, or connecting a computer to a physical hardwire connection rather than using wireless, which can cut out on occasion.
  • Attempt to download the video on a different computer.  Try on your computer at work, or on a friend's computer.  Some older computers may not have the processing power or memory capacity to handle such a large download.
