Loss or Damage in Transit

Damages or losses incurred in transit are excluded from our warranty statement. If product is received damaged, the Buyer is responsible for contacting the carrier immediately. All shipments signed for by the Buyer holding the carrier free and clear of damages become the sole responsibility of the Buyer.

AtlasIED Claims for Loss or Damage in Transit

AtlasIED provides two options to our customers for freight shipments.

  • Orders for $2500 or more qualify for prepaid freight and are shipped FOB (Free on Board) Destination. Prepaid freight is only available for shipments within the Continental US.

    • If product is missing or damaged from a Prepaid (FOB Destination) shipment, this must be noted at time of receipt on both the carrier's and recipient’s copies of the freight bill and POD. Further, please notify AtlasIED at AtlasWarranty@AtlasIED.com within 2 business days with the Purchase Order (PO), copy of the annotated POD, and a description of the Loss or Damage. If the claim is of damage, please also include pictures of the damage in the email.
    • AtlasIED is responsible for loss or damage on prepaid shipments (FOB Destination) until the POD (Proof of Delivery) is signed “Free and Clear” by the destination (customer) or representative.
  • Orders less than $2500 that do not qualify for prepaid freight are shipped solely at the customer’s discretion and the shipping modes and charges are all billed to the customer’s account.

    • The buyer is responsible for any loss or damage when utilizing their own shipping account once the product has left the AtlasIED warehouse.
    • If product is missing or damaged and shipped on the customer’s account, please notify the carrier immediately to initiate a claim. Please note, in this situation, AtlasIED has no standing or culpability in damaged or missing products.
  • If you discover damage after delivery, immediately report the damage to the carrier and request an inspection. The length of time allowed to report concealed loss or damage varies in different locations and with different carriers. Published carrier rules should be read carefully.

    • The carton and packing materials as well as the damaged products should be held for inspection. As a note, you will also be required by the carrier to file a written claim within a certain timeframe, but this policy is stipulated by the carrier.
  • AtlasIED will not accept return of merchandise damaged in transit and will not be responsible in any way for losses or damages in transit after the POD is signed “Free and Clear.”
  • AtlasIED is not responsible for damage or loss claims on items returned under the stock return program.

Minimum Advertised Pricing (MAP) Policy

Atlas Sound L.P. and Innovative Electronic Designs, LLC (AtlasIED) take pride in providing and selling high-quality products under brand names including Atlas Sound, Atlas Power, Atlas Racks, Atlas Support, Innovative Electronic Designs, AtlasIED, and others, and expects retailers who resell the products to maintain AtlasIED’s high standards and the image of the high-quality brands it sells. We also expect the retailers who offer AtlasIED’s products to take the time to learn about our products so that they can properly support their customers. To encourage these efforts, we want retailers to enjoy the rewards of their hard work. This is why it is our policy not to do business with retailers who use low advertised price tactics to induce customers created through the hard work of others. AtlasIED believes that these tactics lower the level of service that other retailers can provide to customers. For these reasons, AtlasIED has implemented this Minimum Advertised Price Policy (the “Policy”).

Each retailer selling products it purchases through AtlasIED remains free to establish its own resale prices; however, following verification by AtlasIED to its satisfaction that a retailer has advertised or promoted any product below AtlasIED’s Minimum Advertised Price (“MAP”), AtlasIED may immediately suspend or terminate the retailer’s ability to purchase products offered by AtlasIED. The current MAP can be found on AtlasIED’s pricelist or upon request.

This Policy applies to all authorized Atlas Sound and Innovative Electronic Designs dealers and resellers. It applies to all advertisements, published or online information in hard copy or digital form that reference AtlasIED products. Advertisements include any form of media such as post cards, flyers, print ads, signage, digital signage, radio, television, auction sites, social media, and broadcast emails to public or private lists. Online pricing includes any communication of price accessible by a web crawler or price comparison site.

AtlasIED MAP guidelines:

AtlasIED resellers may not use online pricing below MAP if it is accessible by a web crawler or price comparison site.

AtlasIED resellers may advertise AtlasIED products:

  • Without prices
  • With free shipping
  • With a discount or rebate applied in the cart to all products
  • Advising to call for pricing

MAP will not apply to discontinued AtlasIED products beginning 90 days after the date AtlasIED announces the discontinuation.

Each retailer who purchases products from AtlasIED is free to independently decide whether or not to follow this Policy. AtlasIED does not ask for, nor will it accept, any assurance of compliance or agreement from a retailer regarding this Policy; nor will AtlasIED discuss any conditions of acceptance related to this Policy. Nothing in any contract or understanding between AtlasIED and any retailer is intended to create any agreement by retailers to adhere to this Policy.

AtlasIED will decide independently and on its own whether a retailer has violated this Policy and what to do about it. While every retailer is free to decide for itself how to do business and what prices to offer, AtlasIED reserves its own right to suspend or stop doing business with any retailer who chooses to ignore this important Policy.

AtlasIED dealers, representatives and employees do not have the authority to discuss or modify this Policy or create exceptions to it. This Policy is subject to change at any time by AtlasIED in its sole discretion.

Purchaser's Agreement

AtlasIED rejects any terms or conditions stated by customer or contained in customer’s purchase documents or correspondence which are in addition to, conflict with or limit the terms and conditions herein. Customer’s placement of an order shall constitute acceptance of the terms and conditions herein and shall be deemed to exclude any additional, conflicting or limiting terms stated by Customer or contained in Customer’s purchase documents or correspondence.

Even though we make every effort to avoid errors, we reserve the right to correct typographical, photographic, clerical or printing errors, and to change specifications to improve products and/or manufacturing methods.

Payment Terms for Non-Dealers

Generally, purchasing products and/or services on our website require full pre-payment of products/services, taxes (where applicable) and shipping costs (if applicable). Credit card payments can be made during the checkout process.

Direct AtlasIED dealers will have different terms.

If you happen to call us, we will kindly ask you to send your request via email so that we can record it in writing.

We must have a copy of your original invoice before issuing any Return Authorizations. Please also remember to include a copy of your original invoice inside the return as well. We also require that you add the provided RA number as an ‘Attention To’ line to the shipping label to help us process your request even faster.

Statement of End User Network Responsibility

AtlasIED provides network based Public Address Systems (PAS) deployed on a wide variety of networks at end user facilities worldwide. As such, a primary factor, directly impacting the reliability of the PAS, is a properly configured, reliable, and stable network on which the PAS resides/functions.

AtlasIED is not responsible, and thus, shall have no liability, for either (a) the end user’s network requirements, including without limitation, those related to the overall performance, security, and other pertinent network criteria, or (b) the end user’s facility network infrastructure, including without limitation, the hardware and/or software utilized for the network on which the PAS resides. AtlasIED relies solely upon the end user’s network owner/manager for the design, provision, configuration, and maintenance of the network, in a manner that enables proper PAS function ability/functionality. If the network on which the PAS resides is improperly designed, configured, or maintained, or malfunctions due to a failure, or undergoes changes or/ modifications, then impacts to the reliability, functionality, or stability of the PAS can be expected. This can result in PAS system anomalies that are outside the control of AtlasIED. In such instances, AtlasIED can be a resource to support the end user’s network owner/manager in diagnosing the problems and attempting to restore the PAS to a fully functioning and reliable state. However, for network-related issues, AtlasIED may look to the end user to recover costs associated with such support activities. For those end-users covered by either the prevailing AtlasIED OEM Limited Warranty and/or an AtlasIED Assurance Plan, and upon request by the end user, AtlasIED will collaborate with all parties (AtlasIED certified integrators and/or end users) to provide limited assistance with network diagnostics at no additional cost to the end user. The extent and nature of this assistance will be based on the specific scenario. Under these programs, AtlasIED will solely determine when/if applicable charges for technical support will be applied. Out of warranty end users, and/or those not covered by an Assurance Plan will be assisted as technical support is available and applicable charges for that technical support will apply.

In cases of a cyber-attack on an end user network resulting in the infection of an AtlasIED component, AtlasIED will not assist with “fixing” the component once infected. If no other option is available, we will wipe the component clean and reload factory settings at the current AtlasIED hourly configuration fee.

AtlasIED will not be liable for any consequences or damages, whether actual, direct, indirect, exemplary, special, consequential, or otherwise, for any end user network upon which a PAS resides/ functions that is not properly configured, reliable, and/or stable.

Statement of Responsibility Regarding Windows® OS Updates

The Windows® operating systems on AtlasIED GLOBALCOM™.IP based products which include the IP100 Series products and the DELL server platforms, are updated at the time of initial installation of the AtlasIED software with the latest AtlasIED approved Windows® updates prior to shipment. The Windows® operating system on 1151 and 1152 server-based systems are updated at the time of initial installation of the AtlasIED software with the latest, pertinent Windows® updates available at the time of the initial software installation.

In either case, once the initial installation of AtlasIED software and Windows® updates are complete, Windows® updates are then turned off. Additionally, AtlasIED does not recommend automatic installation of future Windows® updates as this could adversely affect system function or cause system restarts on its own. AtlasIED periodically, or on any special as-needed basis, reviews security updates for Windows IoT for our GLOBALCOM™.IP products, and releases update packages suitable for off-line installation. Other versions of Windows®, such as Windows® Server, running non-GLOBALCOM™.IP systems on hardware platforms such as Dell servers can be updated if desired from standard Microsoft internet resources. If the owner of AtlasIED system(s) elects to install additional Windows® updates, that owner is responsible for all installation and testing of said updates. In the event that such update(s) cause system functional abnormalities, AtlasIED can provide technical advice and assistance.

AtlasIED will solely determine when/if applicable charges for technical advice and assistance will be applied. Out of warranty end users, and/or those not covered by an Assurance Plan, will be assisted as technical support is available and applicable charges for that technical support will be applied.
