Description of Rental Offer

The Rental Offers describe the objects, products and goods that are currently on offer for rent. They can only include the words, documents and images which the member decides to put online. Members are responsible for their Content, especially with regards to any intellectual property claims which might be made by a third party. All the objects, products, goods, and spaces must be placed in the appropriate category. Any Member, including you, who posts a Rental Offer (a "Seller") is solely responsible for ensuring proper category choices for their rental offers. Placement of an offer in a particular category by a Seller can in no instance be interpreted as a guarantee on Rentomo’s part regarding the origin and authenticity of said rental object. A Seller must have either all ownership rights on an object, or all rights allowing them to put the object they have listed up for rent. Any material terms and conditions of a Rental Offer, including, but not limited to, cost of rental, security deposit, delivery, maintenance fees, or any additional fees, representations or warranties must be clearly indicated in the Rental Offer. Further, if any Rental Agreement is to be proposed by the Seller it must be attached to the Rental Offer. While the Rental Offer will include the Seller's city and state or province, the Seller may make no mention of personal contact information anywhere on the Rental Offer. Things that count as contact information include, but are not limited to, the physical location of the Item, the Seller’s physical address, fax, telephone number, mailing address email address, or any other way to contact the Seller outside of the Rentomo interface. Rentomo recommends that Sellers obtain appropriate insurance for their Rental Offers. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Offer and any property relating to your offering carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Borrowers (and the individuals the Borrower invites to participate in the service or activity, if applicable) while participating in the service or activity you sponsor.

Proposed Borrowers Obligation

Any Member, or you, who wishes to send a "Reservation Request" to a Rental Offer (the "Proposed Borrower") agrees that he or she will review the Rental Offer in its entirety, including any proposed Rental Agreement, before sending a Reservation Request. If the Proposed Borrower wished to amend any terms of the proposed Rental Agreement, he or she must do so in his or her Reservation Request.

Sellers Obligation

The Sellers, not Rentomo, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available any Listings reserved through the Service. If you, as a Buyer, choose to enter into a transaction with a Seller for the booking of a Listing, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Seller and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Listing imposed by the Seller. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Rentomo, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, and Rentomo is not a party to such agreements and disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. Rentomo has no obligation to provide you with a refund for any booking you make through the Service. Sellers also agree to abide by the terms and conditions set forth by Stripe Inc. in order to receive payments.

Rentomo is Not a Party to Any Rental Agreement

Rentomo does not itself offer any rental services. The site is an online marketplace only, designed for the unique purpose of putting people who want to rent items and spaces in touch with people who have items and spaces to rent. We never intervene in the transaction between the Borrower/Renter and the Seller. Rentomo cannot thus be considered part of the Rental Agreement between members of the Site. Rentomo exercises no control over the quality, safety or legality of Items listed, or over the truthfulness or accuracy of the Rental Offers, or over the ability of Sellers to rent the Items listed or over the ability of the Borrower to rent or pay for the rental of any Items. We do not guarantee that the Parties will complete any or all terms of the transaction. Any security deposits or guarantees required by the Seller in whatever form, remains the sole responsibility of the Borrower/Renter and Seller. Rentomo is not responsible for the collection, retention, or refunding of any security deposit, for the control of the exact identity of the Seller and the Borrower, or for collecting money owed by the Borrower to the Seller or by the Seller to the Borrower. Accordingly, Rentomo recommends that you seek professional advice when preparing a Rental Agreement..

Accepted Terms/Rental Transactions

The Seller is free to accept or deny any Rental Request. However, once the Seller has accepted the Reservation Request, the Seller and the Proposed Borrower agree that the proposed terms of the transaction, including any Rental Agreement is binding (subject to any conditions laid out in the Rental Agreement, such as inspection upon delivery.) Rentomo is not responsible for any "double booking" by a Seller or the late return of an Item by a Borrower. As such Rentomo highly recommends that Sellers leave enough time between accepted Rental Requests to receive the Item back from a previous Borrower. Rentomo is not responsible for the condition of the Items posted in a Rental Offer. As such, Rentomo highly recommends that the Proposed Borrower inspect the Item prior to signing a rental and that the delivery of any Item occurs in person.

Pricing Policy

i. Listing Fee - Currently there is no cost for a member to post an item or service for rent. However, post Beta a listing fee may be implemented. There also may be options for a lender to pay an extra cost to get their item highlighted, or other possible listing upgrades. ii. Borrower Service Fee - Currently there is a 2% fee that a Borrower/Renter needs to pay to Rentomo. Stripe Inc, Rentomo's payments processor, collects a fee of 2.9% + $0.3 per transaction. iii. Commission on Transaction - Currently there is no commission on a transaction charged to the Seller/Lender of an item. However post Beta Test this type of fee may be implemented. This refers to a fee charged to the owner/lender that is deducted from the overall rental fee that is received from the borrower. iv. Cancelation Fee - If a Borrower cancels the Reservation Request before it has been accepted by the Seller who posted the Rental Offer or the Seller does not accept the Reservation Request, Rentomo will not charge the Borrower. Subject to the terms and conditions herein, once the Seller accepts a Reservation Pequest, payment of the reservation fee is fully-refundable up to 24 hours before the agreed upon rental date. A 10% (or more) cancellation fee will otherwise be charged to the Borrower. v. Membership Fee - Currently there is no fee for a membership to Rentomo. However, post BETA, there may be a 'pro membership' option that would enable access to premium features. vi. Rental Fee - Rental Fees are set by the Seller of the item. ix. Security Deposit - A Borrower/Renter is responsible for providing the Seller with a security deposit if the Seller has requested such. The security deposit amount is chosen by the Seller. The Seller is responsible for returning the security deposit to the Borrower/Renter. Should the item be returned from the Borrower/Renter to the Seller in a condition that differs from when the item was first received by the Borrower/Renter, it is the responsibility of the Seller and the Borrower to negotiate the damages and come to an agreement on what percentage of the deposit should cover the damages.

Payment Terms

i. Fee Structure - Joining Rentomo is free but in exchange for providing the Service, Rentomo charges a small transcation fee to the Borrower of a Rental offer. As a Borrower/Renter, you agree to pay the amount posted or agreed to by the Seller of the item you want to rent plus a small fee to Rentomo for facilitating the Service and to Stripe Inc. for transacting the payment process. As a Seller, posting an item is free. Some optional services or functionality may incur additional fees. ii. Payment Logistics - If you find an item that you are interested in or submit a request for an item you will be asked to provide your credit card information. Alternatively we will have it on file from a prior transaction with your permission to use that card for future reference. If the Seller who posted the item accepts your Reservation Request, your card will be charged at the time of acceptance; if the Seller fails to respond or opts not to accept your Reservation Request your card will not be charged. The funds will be transferred to the Seller upon their acceptance of your Rental Request according to Stripe Inc's terms and conditions. iii. Cancellation and Refunds - If you cancel your reservation request, Rentomo will refunds to you in accordance with the specific pricing policy and may be subject to a cancellation fee. Privacy - Our privacy policy governs the handling, storage, and use of any information you submit to us, including credit card billing information. Please see our Privacy Policy. iv. Taxes - Rentomo does not do business as an Seller or operator of the items rented through its system. Rentomo merely makes available a marketplace for Seller and Borrowers to meet and arrange transactions. Rentomo is not a contracting agent or representative of the Seller or Borrower. Instead, Rentomo’ role is solely to facilitate the availability of this marketplace for the Seller and Borrower and to provide services related thereto, and any agreement for the use of any accommodations is solely between the Seller and Borrower, and not Rentomo. You understand that we are acting solely as an intermediary for the collection of rents and fees between you and any Sellers or Borrowers with whom you choose to enter into a transaction. Because state and local tax laws vary significantly by locality, you understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining your own tax reporting requirements in consultation with tax advisors. We cannot and do not offer tax advice to either Sellers or Borrowers. v. Damages - As a Renter, you are responsible for returning the item in the condition that it was given to you. In the event that a Seller claims otherwise and provides evidence of damage, including but not limited to photographs, you agree to pay the cost of replacing the damaged item with equivalent items, up to the Recovery Value of the item.

Damage to Seller's Property

As a Borrower, you are responsible for returning any property you lease or borrow from a Seller in the condition it was before you took possession of the property. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Borrower, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the property. IN NO EVENT WILL Rentomo BE LIABLE TO A SELLER OR BORROWER FOR DAMAGE TO A SELLER’S PROPERTY.

Remedies and Disputes

Users are encouraged to resolve disputes between members. Dispute resolution is the sole responsibility between the Seller and Borrower. If needed, Rentomo will try and help to do its best to attain an amiable resolution in all disputes. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT Rentomo IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DISPUTE RESOLUTION.
