SHIPPING AND RETURN POLICY
Please see our Shipping and Return Policy page on this site.
The kits sold by PEK under any name, including the “Essentials Kit”, are not intended to be considered comprehensive, exhaustive, or complete. PEK cannot guarantee that our kits will cover your entire, essential, immediate, or most important needs after any type of disaster. The items included in our kits have been carefully selected based on our assessment of our customers’ needs under certain circumstances, which may not correspond to your own assessment of your needs under similar circumstances. PEK also cannot guarantee that our assessment of the specific circumstances you might face after a disaster will be correct or the same as your own assessment or that of any local, regional, federal, or other authorities or organizations. We have intentionally limited the items in our kits in order to keep our prices as accessible as possible, in order to attend the widest possible market.
By purchasing a kit from PEK, you acknowledge that the items contained in it may not be sufficient to address your own personal needs under any given scenario, and that our kits are intended to represent a foundation upon which you add the additional items important to you. Similarly, the quantities of the items we include in our kits such as toilet or waste bags, tape, plastic sheeting, etc., are based on estimates and may not be sufficient for your specific surroundings or needs.
The purchase of a kit from PEK will not guarantee that you will survive or be uninjured during any type of disaster, nor that your kit will be accessible to you after a disaster, nor that you will be able to overcome any specific circumstances that you may face. By purchasing a kit from PEK, you acknowledge that PEK is only able to provide storage recommendations based on product deterioration or damage, and not access after an earthquake or similar disaster. PEK is not liable for any failure on your part to be able to access your kit following a disaster.
PEK will not be held liable for any defects found in any of the items contained in its kits after the 30 day guarantee period mentioned later in these terms, including any defects discovered during or after an earthquake or similar disaster. PEK will not be liable for any property damage, bodily injuries, or death caused by or as result of the improper use of any of the items included in our kits, including the contents of our Trauma Kits such as tourniquets and emergency compression (Israeli) bandages, which can cause the loss of a limb if used improperly or left on too long. In the event that instructions are included for items contained in PEK’s kits, including reprinted instructions from the City of Portland or other public authorities, PEK will not be held liable for any claims resulting either from the failure to follow said instructions or the inapplicability of said instructions due to policy changes, new information, updated guidelines, or anything else outside the control of PEK. By purchasing a kit from PEK you acknowledge that any instructions provided, including but not limited to disposal of human waste and first aid, are provided for convenience purposes based on current information and may be updated in the future by the relevant authorities and no longer be recommended.
