This User Agreement (“Agreement”) states the terms and conditions pursuant to which Rent Llama, LLC (“Rent Llama,” “us,” or “we”) agrees to provide Users with certain services (the “Services”). In this Agreement and in connection with the Rent Llama site and the Services, “Owner” is the person or business entity listing items on the site, to be rented. “Renter” is the person or business entity making a request to rent and/or renting any item from any Owner.
By clicking on the box on this web site or app that is next to the statement “I have read and agree to the terms and conditions of the User Agreement,” or “Agree,” User agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions stated in this Agreement. User (“User,” “Owner,” “Renter,” or “you”) also agrees to the terms and conditions of this Agreement by paying for and using the Services. If User does not agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, User may not access or otherwise use the Services.
Certain aspects of the Services utilize Google Maps. For additional information, including terms of service and privacy policies that apply to Google Maps, visit http://www.google.com/policies/privacy and http://www.google.com/intl/en-us/help/terms_maps.html
All Users, including Owners, Renters, and any other site visitors, agree to engage honestly with us and with other Users, and with us. You agree that you will give only accurate and current identity and contact information, and that you will update such contact information from time to time as needed to keep it current. If you or any person or business entity related to you is harmed or suffers any loss related to any User or party related to any User, you agree that we do not have any liability for any claims arising out of or relating to any such loss or damage. You will not, nor will your successors, assigns, or any related parties or heirs make any claim against us for any acts or failures to act by any other User.
If you are an Owner, you agree to accurately represent the items you post on the site. You agree to respond in a timely and honest manner to inquiries about your items, and to respond as quickly as you are able to any Requests to Rent. You will not request or obtain any rental price or any other compensation in excess of or in addition to the pricing listed on the Site at the time any relevant Renter submits a rental request. You will not request or accept any payment outside of the payment system on the site, for any reservation, rental, or any other matters initiated or confirmed via the site.
If you are a Renter, you agree to accurately represent yourself and if asked, to accurately represent your experience with any particular tool, equipment, or other item for which you request a rental on the site. You will not make any payment outside of the payment system on the site, for any reservation, rental, or any other matters initiated or confirmed via the site. You agree that for any items that you rent, you will be primarily responsible for any acts, claims, damages, or liabilities resulting from or relating to your use of each item. If any item is damaged, defective, harmful, or otherwise not as listed or expected, you will be free to request a refund of any reservation or rental amounts paid for that item, and you agree that your sole remedy and claim for any other compensation or amounts will be against the Owner who listed the item on the site. You are responsible for competent and safe operation of any item that you rent. If you or any person or business entity related to you is harmed or suffers any loss related to any User or party related to any User, you agree that we do not have any liability for any claims arising out of or relating to any such loss or damage. You will not, nor will your successors, assigns, or any related parties or heirs, make any claim against us.
When you rent an item, you give the Owner and us permission and authority to charge the credit card on which you have placed your reservation payment, for the greater of the time period of the reservation or the time period until the item is returned to the Owner. Any pro rata offset or discount for items returned early to an Owner will be at the discretion of the Owner, and are not required or promised.
Owner understands and acknowledges that any item that is rented might not be returned. Owner agrees to make no claim against Rent Llama or related parties for any failure to recover any item offered for rent on the site.
If a Renter does not return an item within seven (7) days of notice to Renter of the end of the agreed rental reservation period, Owner and Rent Llama have the authority to charge Renter’s credit card on file for an amount that is deemed by a dispute resolution process to be the fair value of the item.
Owner understands and acknowledges that any item that is rented might not be returned in good condition. Owner agrees that ordinary wear and tear, scratches, dings, and other minor damage to an item are expected. If an Owner is otherwise dissatisfied with a Renter due to damage to an item that is excessive, out of the ordinary, or renders a useful item unusable, Owner may request reimbursement for such damage by means of the dispute process within this Agreement.
All users are highly encouraged to act appropriately and try to resolve disputes on their own, and take all preventative measures possible to avoid issues or disputes. However, sometimes things happen. Users may, however, submit a dispute resolution request to Rent Llama in cases involving alleged loss of or damage to a rented item, or minor physical injury directly relating to use of a rental item, or property held for a different duration than the agreed rental period, using our dispute resolution form. Rent Llama will review each such case and either approve additional charges to the relevant credit card on file or initiate a refund, as deemed appropriate in Rent Llama’s sole discretion. The decisions and resolutions will not be more than a full refund if resolved in favor of the Renter, or more than the total value of the rental item plus lost rental income, if resolved in favor of the Owner. If an incident involves allegations other than as described in this paragraph, users will be referred to local authorities. If a dispute involves a credit card chargeback dispute or alleged fraudulent charge, Rent Llama will have no control over the resolution by the credit card company of any such dispute within such process. Each user agrees that where the dispute is within the bounds described by this paragraph, Rent Llama’s decision will be binding and final on each of the users involved in the dispute. Rent Llama will communicate all relevant messaging, any requests for information, and its decision, to the User via the email that is associated with the User’s account at the relevant time.
The site and Services give you the opportunity to rate other Users once you have interacted with them. You agree to post only honest reviews for Users and items with whom/which you have direct experience. We will assign scores to Users and/or items. Such scores will change over time, and will be subject to our own analysis and reserving the right to disregard outlier feedback and to change our scoring calculations to account for our own experience and judgment. You will not have any claim or cause of action against any User, or against us, for changes in your scores or changes in the scores for any of your items.
