Your use of the Smartinhaler™ System is subject to the Smartinhaler™ System Terms of Use (Terms of Use) available here. You agree to comply with the Terms of Use.

Any purchase or subscription via the Site is for personal use only and not for resale.

You warrant and represent that you are 18 or over and that the credit card used to make payment is issued in your name, and you are authorised to use that credit card.

We reserve the right to update or change any information on the Site, at any time.

We may need to update or change these Terms from time to time. If we do so, we will notify you of the change and if the change to the Terms is materially detrimental to you, you will have the opportunity to amend your subscription.



Adherium’s Privacy Policy explains how we look after your personal information including how we collect, process, store, share and keep it safe.



The Smartinhaler™ System is an information tool only and is not a substitute for professional medical advice.  Always consult with your healthcare professional before making any decisions about your health.

The Smartinhaler™ sensors offered on the Site are sold only as part of a subscription to the Smartinhaler™ System.

All sensors offered on this Site as part of your subscription are subject to availability. Subscription orders placed via the Site are binding on us only after we have: (i) received a confirmation of your order, (ii) received your payment and (iii) issued a confirmation of the order by email to the email address or message to the phone number provided by you. Please note that we reserve the right to decline any order.  If we decline an order after you have paid us, we will refund you. If we accept an order, but your payment is subsequently rejected, we reserve the right to cancel your order.

While we have made every effort to display the colours and images of our sensors on the Site as accurately as possible, we cannot guarantee that they will be displayed accurately on your computer monitor.

The Smartinhaler™ sensors have varying service life spans, which will depend on the type of sensor (e.g. rechargeable or non-rechargeable), use patterns and environmental conditions.  The estimated service life included in the product features information on the Site is indicative only and certain variations may occur.

Renewing your subscription annually will entitle you to a new Smartinhaler™ sensor at that time, shipped to you at our cost.



Our Smartinhaler™ sensors are compatible with most smartphone handsets or tablets. Without a compatible handset or tablet you will not be able to connect to your sensor and you will not be able to transfer usage logs to the SmartinhalerLive™ cloud server.  It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a compatible handset or tablet before you select one of our sensors under your subscription.



For new customers, the minimum subscription term with a new sensor is 12 months.

You can choose if you want to pay the subscription fee monthly or annually in advance. If you choose the monthly option, we will charge your credit card monthly.

After the end of your initial 12-month subscription period, your subscription will continue on a month-by-month basis until you either cancel or commit to another 12-month subscription and receive a new sensor.



The sensor will be shipped at your cost to the address indicated in your order. All shipments are priced for delivery to New Zealand addresses only.

Once we have confirmed the acceptance of your order we will deliver the sensor within the estimated delivery dates. Please note that the dates are only estimates and we accept no liability for any delay in delivery.



All prices or fees on the Site are in New Zealand dollars and include GST.

We accept all major credit cards.

All credit card transactions are securely processed by Stripe New Zealand Limited, NZBN: 9429041687628.

We reserve the right to add or amend any price or subscription fee at any time. If we amend a price after you have placed an order on this Site, you will be able to cancel the order.

No subscription fee increases will affect users during the fixed 12-month subscription period described above.  If we amend the subscription fee for an existing month-by-month subscription, you will have an option to cancel the subscription.
