The following provisions are subject to the Member or User's compliance will all other terms and obligations under these Terms of Use, the Owner Expectation & Terms, the Renter Expectations & Terms, and the Privacy Policy. Failure to comply with any terms and obligations under these Terms of Use, the Owner Expectation & Terms, the Renter Expectations & Terms, and the Privacy Policy may result in a Renters or Owners full responsibility for damage and/or loss of Gear, and the agreement to pay for the repair or replacement of the Gear, even if the Damage Waiver or Insurance was purchased by the Renter. The determination of whether a Member or User has complied with all other terms and obligations under these Terms of Use, the Owner Expectation & Terms, the Renter Expectations & Terms, and the Privacy Policy is at the sole discretion of ShareGrid.

Currently, ShareGrid does not provide insurance or any other kind of coverage for spaces, automobiles, and drones. By renting spaces, automobiles, and drones, you understand that you must have adequate and applicable insurance for rental of spaces, automobiles, and drones.  

Owners and Renters are also bound by any and all applicable terms and policies of any insurance providers involved in the transaction. ShareGrid recommends that you carefully read and understand any policy documents which may apply to a rental.

For insurance purchased from Athos Insurance (www.athosinsurance.com), including the options of Short Term Insurance and Annual Insurance,  insurance documents may be agreed to or generated which include but are not limited to the Application, Proof of Insurance, Complete Insurance Policy, and Invoice and Payment Receipt. Any questions about an insurance policy (Short Term Insurance or Annual Insurance) should be directed to Athos Insurance, as ShareGrid is not an insurance provider, broker, or agent.

Damage Waiver (Damage Only): 

Renters have the option to purchase a Damage Waiver for unintentional damage to the rented Gear (equipment listed in the ShareGrid Listing), that they rented, from the start to the end of the Rental Period.

The Damage Waiver option is not an insurance policy. The Damage Waiver option covers unintentional or accidental damage to the rented Gear, subject to the Exclusions listed below. The coverage includes the cost to potentially repair or replace the Gear, up to $6000.00 (max amount payable by ShareGrid to repair or replace the Gear that is covered by the Damage Waiver option).

By purchasing the Damage Waiver option, you, the Renter of Gear from an Owner/member on ShareGrid, assume all responsibility and will be liable for all damage to, theft of, or loss of the Gear while rented. In order to reduce your exposure for such damage, ShareGrid offers a Damage Waiver option that will reduce (but not eliminate) your responsibility for accidental damage to the rented Gear up to the specified limit purchased and/or the listing Replacement Value, as determined by ShareGrid. In return for paying the cost of the Damage Waiver option, so long as you fully comply with ShareGrid's Terms of Use and Renter Expectations and Terms, ShareGrid will be financially responsible for the accidental damage of the rented Gear, up to the limit purchased and/or the listing replacement value, for the duration of the rental transaction, minus any applicable deductible(s) (which can range, as the deductible is 12% the Gear Replacement Value (as provided on the Listing when a Renter requests a rental) of all the Gear in the ShareGrid Listing).

Any deductible(s) are due to ShareGrid or the Owner of the Gear upon payment of the claim. If the purchaser of the Damage Waiver option does not remit payment of the deductible amount which is due to ShareGrid or the Gear Owner, ShareGrid reserves the right and the Renter agrees and authorizes ShareGrid to charge the Renter's payment method on the Renter's account or attempt to collect the debt using alternative methods. 

The Damage Waiver option will apply to the rental transaction that is was purchased, under the Renter name, Rental Period dates, which may include a rented Gear limit, any deductibles per claim, Damage Waiver option fees paid, and the date paid.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
The damage limitations set forth below are subject to your compliance with all of your obligations under the Terms of Use and Renter Expectations and Terms. Even if the Damage Waiver option is purchased, you agree that you will be responsible for the full amount of damages to or the loss of the rented Gear if you fail to comply with all of your obligations under the Terms of Use and Renter Expectations and Terms.

EXCLUSIONS:
A violation of the contract (Terms of Use) shall exist and the Damage Waiver option is void and shall not apply to the following situations:

1. Damage and/or loss was: a) Caused intentionally or as a result of willful and wanton misconduct; b) Occurred outside of the United States; c) A result of Dampness, Dryness or Extremes of Temperature; d) A result of the Renter's or any other party's negligence or recklessness; e) A result of fraud, deceit, scams, voluntary parting, or involuntary loss; f) A result of exposure to Water, Moisture, Sand, Gas, or Dirt; g) Caused by Governmental Action, Hidden or Latent Defect, Rust, Oxidation, Corrosion or Discoloration, Wear and Tear, Mechanical Breakdown, False Pretense, Insects, Vermin or Animals, Processing or Work Upon the Property, and Unauthorized Transfer; h) Caused during the shipment or delivery of rented Gear (including postal mail, private carriers, couriers, etc.).
2. Theft of any kind (Theft from Renter, Theft by Employee, etc.).
3. Rental and agreement to the Terms of Use and Renter Expectations and Terms is based on fraudulent or material misrepresentation.
4. Shipment of rented Gear
5. Loss of Use.
6. Loss of income, loss of time, or any other loss that is monetized or any other cost that may be incurred by the Owner or Renter.

In those circumstances where exclusions apply, you agree to accept responsibility for damage to, loss or theft of, rented Gear.

The determination of whether a theft has occurred is at the sole discretion of ShareGrid, based on an investigation by law enforcement and ShareGrid’s own investigation, which may include contracting investigative services by private investigators and other 3rd parties. All claims of theft require: 1) a copy of a filed police report; 2) confirmation of the police report filing and a criminal investigation by law enforcement; and 3) any information or footage that can help provide details of the theft for ShareGrid’s investigation of the claim.

The determination of whether damage is unintentional and not caused due to other circumstances, actions, or inactions, or if it is considered normal wear and tear as described herein, is at the sole discretion of ShareGrid.

ShareGrid considers any major scratches, scuffs, dents, broken pieces, or other major damage caused unintentionally or accidentally to be damage. Normal wear and tear (including scratches, scuffs, dents, or other less significant damage) is not considered to be damage under the Damage Waiver option, and therefore is not covered by the Damage Waiver option.

If ShareGrid determines that the damage was unintentional and coverage under the Damage Waiver option applies, and the Renter elects to utilize the Damage Waiver option, the Renter agrees to pay ShareGrid a deductible amount of 12% of the Replacement Value of the Gear (as provided on the Listing when a Renter requests a rental), which is typically collected when ShareGrid reimburses the Owner, and the Renter agrees to be charged the deductible amount, and agrees to ShareGrid not refunding deductible amount if the Renter utilizes the Damage Waiver option. Valuation of the Gear, the cost of replacement of the Gear (if applicable), the cost of repair of the Gear (if applicable), and the repair provider who may repair the Gear (if applicable), is within the sole discretion of ShareGrid.

If the Renter damages the Gear belonging to the Owner unintentionally or accidentally, which is included in the rental, within the Rental Period, the Renter agrees to pay for the repair or replacement of the Owner’s Gear, up to the amount not covered by the Damage Waiver option (a claimed amount over $6000.00), and/or the entire deductible amount (if applicable).

If the Renter damages, loses, steals, converts, or transfers to a 3rd party, or takes any other action in regards to the the Gear which is not covered under the Damage Waiver option, to the Gear belonging to the Owner, which is included in the rental, within the Rental Period, the Renter agrees to pay the Gear Owner or ShareGrid (to reimburse the Owner) for the repair or replacement of the Owner’s Gear. Valuation of the Gear included in the rental is within the sole discretion of ShareGrid. Any peripheral item(s) included in the rental, within the Rental Period, are not covered by the Damage Waiver option.

Peripheral items include, but are not limited to, batteries, battery chargers, cases, cables, caps, lens hoods, etc. If the Renter damages and/or loses any peripheral item(s) included in the rental, within the Rental Period, the Renter agrees to pay for the repair or replacement of the peripheral item(s), whether or not the Renter has opted to purchase the Damage Waiver option. In the event of replacement or loss peripheral item(s) included in the rental, Renter agrees to pay ShareGrid the value of the peripheral item(s) to be repaired or replaced, even if Renter purchases a Damage Waiver option, in order for ShareGrid to repair or replace the Owner’s peripheral item(s). Valuation of the peripheral items included in the rental is within the sole discretion of ShareGrid. The determination of whether or not something is a peripheral item and not covered by the Damage Waiver option, is at the sole discretion of ShareGrid.

Renters who purchase the Damage Waiver option must contact ShareGrid as soon as the rented Gear is damaged or lost. ShareGrid will conduct an investigation, and at it's sole discretion, conclude whether the Damage Waiver applies. Members and Users agree to authorize ShareGrid to conduct and investigation and solely determine if the Damage Waiver option applies. There are no guarantees that a purchaser of a Damage Waiver option will have any costs of repair or replacement of the Owner's Gear waived, and there are no guarantees that an Owner will be reimbursed for any costs of repair or replacement, or any other costs.

You accept the provisions set forth within this ‘Damage Waiver’ section of the Terms of Use and fully understand your obligations as described in the Terms of Use and Renter Expectations and Terms.

Even if the Damage Waiver Pro option is purchased, you agree that you will be responsible for the full amount of damages to or the loss of the rented Gear if you fail to comply with all of your obligations under the Terms of Use and Renter Expectations and Terms.

EXCLUSIONS:  A violation of the contract (Terms of Use) shall exist and the Damage Waiver Pro option is void and shall not apply to the following situations:

1. Damage, theft, and/or loss was: a) Caused intentionally or as a result of willful and wanton misconduct; b) Occurred outside of the United States; c) A result of Dampness, Dryness or Extremes of Temperature; d) A result of the Renter's or any other party's negligence or recklessness; e) A result of fraud, deceit, scams, voluntary parting, or involuntary loss; f) A result of exposure to Water (submerged), Moisture, Sand, Gas, or Dirt; g) Caused by Governmental Action, Hidden or Latent Defect, Rust, Oxidation, Corrosion or Discoloration, Wear and Tear, Mechanical Breakdown, False Pretense, Insects, Vermin or Animals, Processing or Work Upon the Property, and Unauthorized Transfer; h) Caused during the shipment or delivery of rented Gear (including postal mail, private carriers, couriers, etc.).
2. Theft by Employee of Renter.
3. Theft by associate of Renter.  
4. Theft from an unlocked vehicle (theft from vehicle without evidence of forced entry).
5. Rental and agreement to the Terms of Use and Renter Expectations and Terms is based on fraudulent or material misrepresentation.
6. Loss of Use.
7. Loss of income, loss of time, or any other loss that is monetized or any other cost that may be incurred by the Owner or Renter.

In those circumstances where exclusions apply, you agree to accept responsibility for damage to, loss or theft of, rented Gear.

The determination of whether a theft has occurred is at the sole discretion of ShareGrid, based on an investigation by law enforcement and ShareGrid’s own investigation, which may include contracting investigative services by private investigators and other 3rd parties. All claims of theft require: 1) a copy of a filed police report; 2) confirmation of the police report filing and a criminal investigation by law enforcement; and 3) any information or footage that can help provide details of the theft for ShareGrid’s investigation of the claim.

ShareGrid requires that Renters initiate a claim under their own or an associated 3rd party's insurance policy (homeowner's policy, tenant/renter's policy, equipment policy, etc.) for any damage or theft of the rented Gear in the Listing. ShareGrid also requires that Owner's initiate a claim under their own or an associated 3rd party's insurance policy (homeowner's policy, renter's policy, equipment policy, etc.) for any damage or theft of the rented Gear in the Listing. If the Renter's , Owner's, or an associated 3rd party's insurance policy reimburses the Owner for a claim related to the claim that is reported to ShareGrid under the Damage Waiver Pro coverage (involves the same rented Gear), ShareGrid will subtract the reimbursement amount that is due or remitted to the Owner from any financial responsibility that ShareGrid may have to the Owner. 

The determination of whether damage is unintentional and not caused due to other circumstances, actions, or inactions, or if it is considered normal wear and tear as described herein, is at the sole discretion of ShareGrid.

ShareGrid considers any major scratches, scuffs, dents, broken pieces, or other major damage caused unintentionally or accidentally to be damage. Normal wear and tear (including scratches, scuffs, dents, or other less significant damage) is not considered to be damage under the Damage Waiver Pro option, and therefore is not covered by the Damage Waiver Pro option.

If ShareGrid determines that the damage was unintentional or there was a theft from the renter, and coverage under the Damage Waiver Pro option applies, and the Renter elects to utilize the Damage Waiver Pro option, the Renter agrees to pay ShareGrid a deductible amount of 12% of the Replacement Value of the Gear (as provided on the Listing when a Renter requests a rental), which is typically collected when ShareGrid reimburses the Owner, and the Renter agrees to be charged the deductible amount, and agrees to ShareGrid not refunding deductible amount if the Renter utilizes the Damage Waiver Pro option. Valuation of the Gear, the cost of replacement of the Gear (if applicable), the cost of repair of the Gear (if applicable), and the repair provider who may repair the Gear (if applicable), is within the sole discretion of ShareGrid.

If the Renter damages the Gear belonging to the Owner unintentionally or accidentally, which is included in the rental, within the Rental Period, the Renter agrees to pay for the repair or replacement of the Owner’s Gear, up to the amount not covered by the ShareGrid Damage Waiver Pro option (a claimed amount over $20,000.00), and/or the entire deductible amount (if applicable).

If the Renter damages, loses, steals, converts, or transfers to a 3rd party, or takes any other action in regards to the the Gear which is not covered under the Damage Waiver Pro option, to the Gear belonging to the Owner, which is included in the rental, within the Rental Period, the Renter agrees to pay the Gear Owner or ShareGrid (to reimburse the Owner) for the repair or replacement of the Owner’s Gear. Valuation of the Gear included in the rental is within the sole discretion of ShareGrid. Any peripheral item(s) included in the rental, within the Rental Period, are not covered by the Damage Waiver Pro option.

Peripheral items include, but are not limited to, batteries, battery chargers, cases, cables, caps, lens hoods, etc. If the Renter damages and/or loses any peripheral item(s) included in the rental, within the Rental Period, the Renter agrees to pay for the repair or replacement of the peripheral item(s), whether or not the Renter has opted to purchase the Damage Waiver Pro option. In the event of replacement or loss peripheral item(s) included in the rental, Renter agrees to pay ShareGrid the value of the peripheral item(s) to be repaired or replaced, even if Renter purchases a Damage Waiver Pro option, in order for ShareGrid to repair or replace the Owner’s peripheral item(s). Valuation of the peripheral items included in the rental is within the sole discretion of ShareGrid. The determination of whether or not something is a peripheral item and not covered by the Damage Waiver Pro option, is at the sole discretion of ShareGrid.

Renters who purchase the Damage Waiver Pro option must contact ShareGrid as soon as the rented Gear is damaged or lost. ShareGrid will conduct an investigation, and at it's sole discretion, conclude whether the Damage Waiver Pro option applies. Members and Users agree to authorize ShareGrid to conduct and investigation and solely determine if the Damage Waiver Pro option applies. There are no guarantees that a purchaser of a Damage Waiver Pro option will have any costs of repair or replacement of the Owner's Gear waived, and there are no guarantees that an Owner will be reimbursed for any costs of repair or replacement, or any other costs.

You accept the provisions set forth within this ‘Damage Waiver Pro’ section of the Terms of Use and fully understand your obligations as described in the Terms of Use and Renter Expectations and Terms.

NOTICE: THIS AGREEMENT OFFERS, FOR AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE, A DAMAGE WAIVER PRO OPTION TO COVER YOUR FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE TO RENTED GEAR IN YOUR CARE, CUSTODY AND CONTROL. THE PURCHASE OF THE DAMAGE WAIVER PRO OPTION IS NOT MANDATORY AND MAY BE WAIVED.

Renters and Gear

If the Renter damages, loses, steals, converts, or transfers to a 3rd party, or fails to return the Gear belonging to the Owner, which is included in the rental, within the Rental Period, the Renter agrees to pay for the repair or replacement of the Owner’s Gear, up to the amount not covered by a Renter's coverage option or insurance policy, and/or the entire deductible amount (if applicable) for the coverage option or insurance policy that covers the Gear.

ShareGrid is not liable for a Member’s deceptive or fraudulent acts, voluntary parting of Gear, the theft of Gear, and/or any other loss caused by Member’s deceptive or fraudulent acts and a Member’s use of ShareGrid.com, but ShareGrid will completely cooperate with the investigation and produce information about the incident and parties involved, working with law enforcement and any insurance companies involved.

If ShareGrid receives a cardholder dispute or chargeback for any charges that were authorized by the Renter on ShareGrid.com, the Renter agrees to immediately remit payment to ShareGrid for the disputed charge amount and a $35.00 fee for each disputed charge. ShareGrid will respond to any disputes with any information that indicates that the charge was authorized by the Renter.

Owner Gear and Rental Listing Prices

ShareGrid reserves the right to change the price of an Owner’s Gear listing. ShareGrid does so in order to maintain reasonable rental prices relative to other listing prices, with the intention to increase the likelihood that an Owner will have their Gear rented by a Renter. If an Owner does not agree with a price change, they have the option of closing their listing at any time, refusing to accept a rental request, or contacting ShareGrid to discuss the issue.

Taxes

ShareGrid cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members. Please consult your tax consultant to determine tax treatment for your rental activities and retain all relevant documentation. This statement is provided for information purposes only and is not intended to constitute tax advice.

"Tax" or "Taxes" mean any sales taxes, value added taxes (VAT), goods and services taxes (GST), or any other taxes  that the Owner may be required by law to collect and remit to governmental agencies, and other similar municipal, state, federal and national indirect or other withholding and personal or corporate income taxes.

You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining (i) your applicable Tax reporting requirements, and (ii) the Taxes that should be included in a Listing price, and for including Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in your Listings.

You understand and acknowledge that appropriate governmental agencies, departments or authorities (the "Tax Authority") where you are located may require Taxes to be collected from Owners and Renters on the amount paid for the right to use of Gear, and to be remitted to the respective Tax Authority. The laws in jurisdictions may vary, but these taxes may be required to be collected and remitted as a percentage of the actual Listing price (before tax) set by Owners, a set amount per day, or other variations. You are solely responsible for remitting to the relevant authority any Taxes included or received by you.

Disputes (Agreement to Arbitrate)

You and ShareGrid agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise between us will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Section (“Disputes”). Please read this Section carefully. It affects your rights and will impact how claims you and we have against each other are resolved.

Contact ShareGrid First: If a dispute arises between you and ShareGrid, our goal is to learn about and address your concerns and, if we are unable to do so to your satisfaction, to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Disputes between you and ShareGrid regarding ShareGrid may be reported to info{at}sharegrid.com.

Applicable Law: You agree that the laws of the State of Washington, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern this Terms of Use and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and ShareGrid, except as otherwise stated in this User Agreement.

Agreement to Arbitrate: You and ShareGrid each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and ShareGrid shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.

Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief: YOU AND SHAREGRID AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND SHAREGRID AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER SHAREGRID USERS OR MEMBERS.

Arbitration Procedures. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator also must follow the terms of this Terms of Use as a court would. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules and procedures, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA's website at http://www.adr.org. The arbitration shall be held in King County, Washington or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or ShareGrid may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and ShareGrid subject to the arbitrator's discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or ShareGrid, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different ShareGrid members or users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same ShareGrid member or user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.Costs of Arbitration. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement to Arbitrate. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse ShareGrid for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by ShareGrid on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA's rules.

Severability: With the exception of any of the provisions in any subsection of this Agreement to Arbitrate ("Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief"), if a court decides that any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall still apply. If a court decides that any of the provisions in subsection of this Agreement to Arbitrate ("Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief") is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall be null and void. The remainder of the Terms of Use, including all other provisions of this section (“Disputes”), will continue to apply.
