This site is owned and operated by PrepSOS. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At PrepSOS, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

INFORMATION PREP SOS GATHERS AND TRACKS PrepSOS gathers two types of information about users: Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters, to participate in our message boards or forums, to email a friend, and from participation in polls and surveys: Information PrepSOS gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers needs and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does PrepSOS divulge any information about an individual user to a third party. PrepSOS Gathers User Information In The Following Processes: Optional Voluntary Information We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users: 1. Electronic newsletters policy (Dispatches) We will offer a free electronic newsletter to users. PrepSOS gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration.

USAGE TRACKING PrepSOS tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. PrepSOS does break down overall usage statistics according to a users domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every users browser). PrepSOS sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and dont like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.

COOKIES We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie cant read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.PrepSOS uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above). Our advertising system delivers a one-time cookie to better track ad impressions and click rates. You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If youve set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site. However, you do need cookies to participate actively in message boards, forums, polling and surveys.

USE OF INFORMATION PrepSOS uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users. When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and dont like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users. But we dont track which terms a particular user enters. PrepSOS creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers, sponsors and partners. This allows our advertisers to advertise more effectively, and allows our users to receive advertisements that are pertinent to their needs. Because we dont track the usage patterns of individual users, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific user clicked their ad. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

SHARING OF THE INFORMATION PrepSOS uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our advertisers better understand our audiences demographics. This is essential to keeping our service free. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

Return & Refund Policy

*If the products in your order were clearly marked in the product title of shipment expectation and you cancel your order before the intended shipment date, a 6% of total order amount (including sales tax and shipping) will be deducted from refunds due to cancelled orders cancelled after 6 hours of your order to cover our cost of processing your payments inbound and outbound when orders are cancelled. If the products in your order did not have shipment expectations in the product titles you can cancel your order within 6 hours for a full refund. If you request a cancellation after 6 hours, a 6% deduction will be made to cover our cost of processing your payments inbound and outbound. If the product(s) ordered were from Harvest Right, our supplier, the deduction will be 9% as they also charge us a 3% cancellation fee to cover their credit card processing fees. Even if there is an estimated shipping timeline marked on a product, there is no guarantee that your order or part of your order has not already shipped by the time we receive and read your request to cancel. We will not be able to refund products that have already shipped.

**Refunds to credit cards and PayPal accounts can take 7-10 business days (Monday – Friday,) sometimes longer depending on your bank/card issuer. Please communicate with us directly instead of contacting your credit card company to charge back your purchase as we’re happy to work with you on cancelling orders and processing refunds.

***Dented and open upon arrival products.

Damaged product is handled on an individual item basis, but things to look for might be:

  1. Are the materials spilling out?
  2. Is the damage cosmetic only? (Smudge in print or label tear etc.)
  3. Is the dent (cans only) creased or preventing cans from being stacked?
  4. Is the dent larger than a baseball? (Small dents can occur during shipping and are considered “Normal”)
  5. Are you missing parts due to damage? 

Slight damage to the product does not necessarily mean a return is necessary. Below are examples of damaged products that will not compromise the product’s quality and shelf life:

·         Collapsed Pails. Because of elevation changes during shipping, airtight pails occasionally arrive “collapsed”. This is unavoidable due to air pressure. If the pail remains collapsed, you can rest assured that the pail is air tight and perfectly sealed. However, if a collapsed pail slowly begins to expand, the seal may be compromised. Pails that arrive without having collapsed are air tight and perfectly sealed.

·         Dented Cans. Occasionally scratches and dents happen, however they are usually cosmetic. If you are concerned, please contact us and we will conduct a visual inspection and let you know if the dent is cosmetic or needs to be replaced.

·         Shipping Boxes. Boxes that are damaged during shipping do not typically compromise the product inside. Upon receipt of a damaged box, please open the box right away to make sure the product(s) remain sealed and airtight. If they are sealed and airtight, the product is perfectly good.

If you are uncomfortable with damaged product and are concerned that the damage is more than cosmetic, please contact us to discuss replacement options. You may contact us by emailing us at info@prepsos.com – expected response times are within 1-2 business days. We do not provide phone support.

****We do not price match pricing found on any other websites. We also do not apply coupons or discounts to orders already placed.

*****If an order is cancelled after it has been picked and packed, it is subject to a 20% restocking fee.

 

We reserve the right to refund items at our discretion for any reason.

 

NO RETURNS CURRENTLY ALLOWED DUE TO COVID-19.

 

If you are dissatisfied with any product, please E-mail our Customer Service Department at info@prepsos.com within 7 days of the shipment date to receive authorization and return instructions.

RE-STOCKING FEES. We charge a 15% restock fee on products returned (in addition to the credit card processing fee deduction.) There will be a 25% restocking fee (in addition to the credit card processing fee deduction) for the return of bulk quantites (4 or more) of certain products, products that contain more than 4 items as a group, and large products such as but not limited to:  Humless/Lion Energy/Renogy Generators and solar panels.
