By using any Albion Allen Inc. Service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Illinois, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Albion Allen Inc.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Albion Allen service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Albion Allen or through AlbionAllen.com will be resolved by arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent [email protected]________________. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Albion Allen will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, the controlling language for these Terms and Conditions is English. Any translation of these Terms and Conditions has been provided for your convenience only
To the extent any portion of these Terms and Conditions is determined to be unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such portion will be modified solely to the extent necessary to cause such portion to be enforceable, and these Terms and Conditions, as modified, will remain in full force and effect. This is the entire agreement between you and us relating to the subject matter herein.
Choice of Law and Forum
The Terms of Service and the relationship between You and Albion Allen Inc. shall be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and Albion Allen Inc. agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the County of Cook, Illinois.

Terms of Sale
*If you need to contact AAI by phone, call 800-222-7837. Hours of operations:
We close for all holidays.
*Terms of Sale- AAI minimum order is $20.00
Immediately upon your online purchase, our web server sends you a confirmation email. Please change your spam protection accordingly to receive this email. If you do not receive this confirmation email within a few hours, please notify us as you may have entered your email information incorrectly. We can then resend an order confirmation to you.
*AAI accepts payments in the form of Visa, Master Card, and Discover.
*Order Processing-Orders are processed Monday thru Friday excluding holidays. Our goal is to get your products shipped as soon as possible. Most of our products are NOT assembled in inventory. Most products are assembled at the time of order. At times, minor components may not be in inventory and may delay your shipment. We try to ship most orders within 3-5 business days or sooner after processing orders.
*Shipping– Important Note: If you absolutely, positively have to have your products by a specific date, DO NOT place an order on the website. Phone in your order via our toll-free number: 800-222-7837.
Also, DO NOT assume that, by choosing UPS Next Day Air, you will receive your products tomorrow.
AAI ships to the continental United States from the website. We ship UPS and therefore cannot ship to postal boxes or APO’s – physical address only. We can not use your UPS account to ship your order.
When you choose any UPS shipping method on our website, this is how we will ship your products after we fill (assemble and packaged) your order. UPS shipping charges are calculated in real time with UPS’s website, using projected packaged weights of items, shipping distance from shipping point. A nominal charge is added for the packaging materials depending on package size.
If you do not specific “Signature Required” for special instructions, YOU will be responsible for the UPS delivered package. We will not issue a claim for items which UPS say were delivered.
Non-Ground UPS service is based on the date your order is filled (assembled and packaged), not the date your order is placed. Orders are filled, then shipped via UPS 3-Day, UPS 2nd Day or UPS Next Day Air. For UPS 3-Day and 2nd Day, the actual shipping day is NOT included in the delivery time. For Ground shipments, see map below.
For packages under 300 lbs we ship by UPS. Orders that weight over 300 lbs will be shipped by a common freight or trucking company or our selection, unless otherwise specified.
Combined shipments with UPS are an issue of some concern to some customers. What this amounts to is this: if you buy two items and ship each separately, the UPS charges would be nearly double that of the same items packaged as a single heavier shipment. It is our policy with all orders to combine multiple items into the minimum number of containers necessary. The maximum weight ship by UPS is 50 lbs. If the order is lighter than this, and the items will fit in one regulation box, the items will be shipped in one large box; if the items are heavier than this, they will be shipped in one or more boxes, but all the boxes will be shipped in one single shipment.
AAI can not be held responsible for policy or mistakes made by UPS.
Most products are shipped FOB shipping point.
All of our prices are products prices and do not include freight charges.
*Tracking Numbers– Tracking numbers become available at the Albion Allen office the day after your order is shipped. We normally will not know the status of your shipment until our assembly plant returns your “fulfilled” order. If you’ve given us a valid email address, we email your tracking number to you. Check your email and spam filter. If you haven’t gotten an email, you can get your tracking number from our website by clicking the “order tracking” button at the top of each page. You will need your “order number” and the “ship to zip code” to get the tracking information. You may request a tracking number via email or call us at 800-222-7837.
*Stock- AAI actively stocks all of the items in the website. We can not guarantee that we will have sufficient quantity to fulfill all orders at the time they are placed. It is possible, at any given time, depending upon demand, that we may be low on or temporarily out of an item. If so we will work to obtain sufficient items to fulfill the order in a timely manner. We will contact you by phone or email should there be any problems with the delivery of items. To be sure about particular items, please call to check on inventory quantities. We will be happy to obtain and stock items that we do not currently stock, or maintain higher inventory levels than we currently hold, should there sufficient demand for such items. Also, our actual inventory contains many more specialty items than we list on this web site. If you do not see an item that you want please give us a call.
*Returns– Our products should meet your expectations. However, if you are not satisfied, we will offer a refund or exchange on all standard product purchases within ten (10) days of the shipment date excluding any shipping, insurance, restocking charges (if applicable) or other charges where applicable. You must first call 800-222-7837 in order for us to properly process your return.
If you are uncertain of the merchandise quality or appearance, please discuss any additional questions you may have with a customer representative before, purchasing items. If you are not satisfied with the merchandise you receive, please contact us IMMEDIATELY and we will assist you in obtaining a refund or replacement.
*Damaged Product Policy- If you received goods in a damage condition please inform the carrier (UPS) immediately. Sign the bill of lading as products damaged.
