PARTIES, CONSIDERATION AND PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
These Service Terms and Conditions of Use (this “Agreement”) are between you (“You” or “User”) and Operator. In the event that User allow additional persons to use the Services (as defined below), the definitions of You and User shall include any additional persons using the Services under User’s account.
In consideration of Operator providing the Services to the User, User agrees to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Operator maintains an inventory of equipment (“Equipment”), including but not limited to 10×10 “pop-up” tents, weights, chairs, towels, battery chargers, power supplies, fans, wireless speakers, wifi hotspots, beach games, fishing nets, and lockable containers which the Operator delivers to set-up points (“Set-up Point”). All of the foregoing equipment and other equipment located at a Set-up Point, in whole or part, shall be referred to as “Operator Equipment.” Certain combinations of equipment will be rented together as a rental package (“Base Package”). Certain Packages may allow for either additional items (“Additional Items”) for a fee, or selection between multiple items (“Variable Items”) for no charge (Taken together the Base Package, Additional Items, and Variable Items are the “Rental Package”; and the “Operator’s Services” or “Services” comprise the renting of the Rental Package from Operator combined with the set-up and take-down services provided by Operator). Not all Equipment will be available at all locations on all days. Not all Equipment will be available with each Rental Package. Certain types of equipment may be rented by User from a third party vendor who will deliver such equipment to the Set-Up Point and in any such circumstance Operator shall not be responsible for the equipment rented from a third party vendor.
1.3 HOW IT WORKS
(I) Reservations may be made via the web (www.cabanup.com), over the phone, or in person
(II) Select the desired Set-up Point.
(III) Choose the date(s) of service, the Base Package, Variable Items, and Additional Items desired. All services must be reserved at least two (2) calendar days in advance (“Lead-time Requirement”), with some services requiring additional lead time. The Services will not be available for reservation more than 90 days in advance.
(IV) Review and agree to the full terms of this Agreement and pay.
(V) On the day of your reservation (“Service Date”), the Operator will take all Operator Equipment included in your Rental Package to your chosen Set-up Point. The Operator will set-up the 10’x10’ tent and chairs and leave a Secure Locker with the smaller Operator Equipment locked inside. User’s name will be on both the tent and the Secure Locker. User will be provided a code to unlock the Secure locker via email or text prior to 10 a.m. that same day. At the end of the day User will return all Operator Equipment delivered via the Secure Locker back to the Secure Locker and lock it and the Secure Locker will be left under the 10’ x 10’ tent at the Set-up Point.
(VI) The rental period begins no later than 10 a.m. on the day of service, and ends no earlier than 4:30 p.m. that same day (the “Service Window”). On days with winds forecasted to be in excess of 14 mph the rental period begins no later than 10:30 a.m. on the day of service. The Service Window may begin earlier than 10 a.m. or end later than 4:30 p.m. depending on delivery sequencing. No usage of the Operator Equipment outside of the 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. window is guaranteed by the Operator unless expressly provided for in writing. User may be subject to an additional charge if User or any additional person(s) making use of the Operator’s Services that User has rented fails to turn-over all of Operator Equipment when asked to do so at or after 4:30 p.m. In the event the Operator Equipment remains in place after 4:30 p.m., User acknowledges and accepts that it can be removed at any time after 4:30 p.m. at the Operator’s sole discretion without prior notice.
(VII) Certain larger Additional Items and Variable Items may be delivered after 10 a.m. at the Operator’s discretion. Notifications of such later deliveries will generally be on Operator’s website (www.cabanup.com) or provided verbally when reservations are made over the phone or in person. Failure to provide notice of later delivery of Additional and Variable items on the website does not constitute a breach of this Agreement by the Operator.
(VIII) User acknowledges and agrees that (a) User shall be responsible for any Rental Package which User rents (b) User shall be responsible for ensuring that any person(s) making use of the Services shall comply with this Agreement, and (c) User is fully and completely responsible and liable for all Claims (as defined below) arising from or related to any other person(s)’s use of the Services rented by User and that User expressly indemnifies Operator, and holds it harmless, for any harm to any person or property resulting from the Services being used by the additional person(s).
(IX) Users may only rent one Rental Package per day per transaction. If User rents a Rental Package for someone other than the User, the User acknowledges and agrees that (a) User shall be responsible for the Rental Package which User rents on behalf of others (b) User shall be responsible for ensuring that any person(s) making use of the Services shall comply with this Agreement, and (c) User is fully and completely responsible and liable for all Claims (as defined below) arising from or related to any other person(s)’s use of the Services which were rented by User on behalf of such other person(s) and that User expressly indemnifies Operator, and hold it harmless, for any harm to any person or property resulting from the Services used by the additional person(s).
