Limited Warranty And Limitation Of Liability
YOU AGREE AND UNDERSTAND THAT THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AVAILABLE FROM INSPIROTEC ARE NOT MEDICAL, NURSING OR OTHER PROFESSIONAL HEALTH CARE ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS OR TREATMENT.
YOU MUST SEEK DIAGNOSIS, TREATMENT AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED PROVIDERS BASED ON YOUR CONDITION AND PARTICULAR CIRCUMSTANCES.
In this limited warranty, Inspirotec, Inc. is referred to as "Inspirotec," "we," "us" or "our." The person who use our device and services is referred to as "you," or "your."
Inspirotec's "device" is the AirAnswers® collection device and peripheral items used with it (such as testing cartridges). Our "service" refers to your use of the AirAnswers® collection device, our analysis of the cartridges from your AirAnswers® kit, any reports, information and materials exchanged between you and us and any other communication, transaction or interaction between you and us or any person working with us (including customer consultation services).
The AirAnswers® device tests for the presence of mold and for the presence of the following allergens:
- Pollens: ragweed, timothy grass, and birch tree pollen
- Animals: cat, dog, mouse, rat, cockroach, and dust mites
The AirAnswers® device samples air which is intended to be representative of the air in the home or business in which the device is run for the recommended one or five day periods. However, the actual result may depend on the exact local airflow conditions, size of home or business, air flow in and out of room through doors or windows[HMI2] .
Please note that:
- A positive result for a particular allergen means that the analysis of your test detected particles of one or more allergens covered by the analysis in the air sampled.
- A negative result (indicating that no allergens were detected) does not mean that no allergens are present in your environment, only that the analysis of your test did not detect particles in the particular area in which the AirAnswers® device was placed, or was below the detection limit of the test.
- The service does not cover all types of allergens, and there may be other airborne allergens present in your environment that the AirAnswers® device and our service are not designed to detect.
- The amount of allergens in the particular environment may fall below the limit of detection for the test during the time period in which you run the AirAnswers® device. A test result below the limit of detection does not mean that the allergen is absent from the environment at all times.
- The AirAnswers® device and service do not detect allergens that are not in the air, such as allergens in food or in settled dust.
Inspirotec warrants that when used in accordance with our instructions the AirAnswers® device and our service will detect the types of allergens and mold in accordance with the documentation and descriptions in our product literature.
The warranty period begins on the date you receive the AirAnswers® device from us and lasts for a period of 30 days. This limited warranty extends to the person who ordered the AirAnswers® device and to no other person or entity.
If our AirAnswers® device and/or service fails to meet the standards of this limited warranty during the warranty period, Inspirotec will – at our sole discretion – either (1) provide you a replacement AirAnswers® device and/or testing cartridge(s) and re-perform the service, or (2) refund to you the amount you paid to us for the defective AirAnswers® device and/or service.
EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS
In addition to the limitations described above, Inspirotec's limited warranty does not cover, and Inspirotec will have no liability or responsibility for:
- Any failure to perform, loss or damage due to transportation, improper use, failure to follow instructions accompanying the AirAnswers® device
- Unauthorized repair or modifications, or external causes such as accidents, abuse, other actions or circumstances beyond our reasonable control
- Detection or analysis of allergens that our AirAnswers® device and service are not intended to detect or any allergen particles that are not in the air that passes through the AirAnswers® device
- Any communications between you and customer consultants made available through Inspirotec
Inspirotec does not warrant that the service will test for or detect all potential allergens, fungi, bacteria and/or viruses in the environmental air. The absence of an allergen, fungus, bacteria and/or virus on a test strip means that during the sampling period no particles of the specific allergens that our AirAnswers® device and service are designed to detect settled on the test strip for the device, or were below the limit of detection of the service. It does not mean that there were no such allergens in the area, or that there are no other allergens, or bacteria, viruses and/or other potentially harmful materials in the area.
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, ORAL OR WRITTEN, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, RELATED TO THE DEVICE OR SERVICE.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY DESCRIBED IN THE SECTION ABOVE CAPTIONED "LIMITED WARRANTY," INSPIROTEC AND ITS OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES, AFFILIATES AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SUCCESSORS (TOGETHER, THE "PROTECTED PARTIES") EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON- INFRINGEMENT OF PROPRIETARY RIGHTS.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties. In such jurisdictions, the foregoing disclaimers may not apply to you insofar as they relate to implied warranties.
YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THE PROTECTED PARTIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF THE PROTECTED PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), RESULTING FROM THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE DEVICE OR SERVICE.
In the event of a breach of the limited warranty, our liability shall be limited to re-performing the service or refunding the amount you paid to us for the device and service. In no event shall the Protected Parties' total cumulative liability to you for all damages, losses, and causes of action (whether in contract, tort (including, but not limited to, negligence)), or otherwise, exceed the amount paid by you, if any, for the use of the device and service.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations may not apply to you.
