HECS products are designed to reduce the electromagnetic output of the wearer so less is emitted and detectable from the outside. Some animal species are attuned to very minor electromagnetic signals. Typically such species are also sensitive to visual and olfactory (i.e. smell) stimulation, which HECS does not effect. HECS products DO NOT in effect make the wearer invisible. The wearer assumes all responsibility when in the habitat of wild animals, sharks, rays and other marine life.

Many aquatic species are dangerous and unpredictable. It is impossible to guarantee that marine life will not detect a faint electromagnetic signal while a person is wearing a HECS product and may also locate a wearer using its other senses. With or without a HECS product all aquatic species should be treated with respect and caution. Any water-based activity in the presence of marine life is inherently dangerous, involves a considerable amount of risk and is not recommended. Do not participate in any activity involving risk of harm from marine life that you would not voluntarily engage in without a HECS product.

Governing Law

These Terms of Service shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of New Zealand.
