Limitation of Liability
YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT IN NO EVENT SHALL ALEN AND THEIR SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS BE LIABLE TO YOU UNDER CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF USE, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR INFORMATION OF ANY KIND, OR LOSS OF BUSINESS GOODWILL OR OPPORTUNITY) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS SITE OR ANY ALEN CONTENT OR ANY USER CONTENT, EVEN IF THEY HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGES.

Alen provides this Site in and from the United States of America. Alen does not represent or warrant that this Site or any Alen Content is appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States of America. If you access this Site from a jurisdiction outside the United States of America, you acknowledge and agree that you do so of your own initiative and that you are solely responsible for complying with local laws applicable to your use of this Site.
- You and Alen agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to this Site or these Terms and Conditions for Use of Site, will be resolved by binding arbitration, except that: (1) either you or Alen may assert claims, if they qualify, in a small claims court; and (2) Alen may bring a court action solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of this Site, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights), without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute resolution process described in this arbitration agreement. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms and Conditions for Use of Site, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement, and that you and Alen are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration agreement will survive termination of these Terms and Conditions for Use of Site and the termination of your relationship with Alen.
- To initiate arbitration, you must first send to Alen, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim ("Notice") and such Notice to Alen must be addressed to:
- Alen, Attn: Legal Department, 9200 Waterford Centre Blvd Suite 600, Austin, TX 78758 ("Notice Address"). If Alen initiates arbitration, Alen will provide you with a similar Notice by email to the email address then associated with your account on this Site. A Notice, whether sent by you or by Alen, must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (2) set forth the specific relief sought. If Alen and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim or dispute within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Alen may commence an arbitration proceeding.
- You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after Alen receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, Alen will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than US$10,000, in which event you will be responsible for filing fees.
- If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely through the submission of documents to the arbitrator, via telephone or video conferencing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of Alen's last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if Alen did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then Alen will pay you the amount of the award or US$1,000, whichever is greater. If the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse Alen for all fees associated with the arbitration that Alen paid on your behalf which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA Rules. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
- YOU AND ALEN AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Alen agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration agreement shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
Alen will not be liable for any delay in performing any of its obligations if the delay is caused by circumstances beyond its reasonable control, such as failure of or interruption in the provision of essential services such as electricity supply, bank payment systems or postal deliveries.
If any provision contained in these Terms and Conditions for Use of Site is held by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, such provision shall be deemed modified in such manner as to render such provision valid, legal, and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law in such jurisdiction, and the remaining provisions contained in these Terms and Conditions for Use of Site will not be affected and shall remain in full force and effect.
You acknowledge and agree that Alen may at any time, without giving you notice or seeking your consent, transfer and assign all personal information, User Content and associated rights and licenses that Alen has obtained from you as well as all agreements Alen has made with you in connection with your use of this Site, to (i) an affiliate or (ii) a third party that acquires or merges with Alen or to which Alen sells or otherwise transfers its business or assets (including this Site).
A failure by Alen to exercise or enforce any right or provision under these Terms and Conditions for Use of Site will not constitute a waiver of the right or provision. Any waiver of any provision under these Terms and Conditions for Use of Site will only be effective if it is in writing and signed by Alen.

Return & Exchange Policy
Customers may return unused and unopened products within 30 days from receipt with no product restocking charges. However, sales and agreements processed and sold via our Business to Business team are subject to different criteria and products that are not eligible for return, this includes, but is not limited to: BreatheSmart 75i, BreatheSmart 45i, BreatheSmart FLEX, BreatheSmart Classic, BreatheSmart FIT50, T500, T300, T100, A375, A350 and Paralda platforms. Order discrepancies must be reported within 10 days of receipt. All opened products are subject to a 15% restocking charge. No exchanges or returns will be accepted after 60 days. Exchanged merchandise is subject to testing and inspection upon receipt by Alen. Please allow up to 14 days after Alen's receipt of product for your account to be credited.
In order to prevent possible transport damages and to secure your rights to exchange products, products must be returned packaged exactly as they were received. The product must be shipped back in the original packaging and insured. If original packaging is required, Alen will provide a shipping box at a nominal fee. If Product is not sent back in its original packaging, the sender accepts all liability for damage claims and may be charged by Alen for repairs. All products exchanged or returned must be accompanied with a RA (Return Authorization) number.
The RA number must be clearly listed on the outside of the box or on the return label, otherwise the shipment will be refused and immediately returned to the sender. The absence of a RA number will delay the exchange or return process. Therefore, please contact Alen Technical Support Team to receive a RA number and shipping instructions prior to shipment.
RA's are only valid for 15 days. After 15 days the RA is automatically voided and will be refused should a customer attempt to return Product after the 15-day period.
All accessories, i.e. vent cover, power cord, etc., especially the filter and panel, must be returned otherwise an additional $50 charge will apply.
Any added replacement costs will be assessed and incurred upon the completion of testing and inspection. Alen does not refund shipping, handling, or insurance charges for returned or exchanged products.
