No Company Service, nor any part of any Company Service, may be reproduced, duplicated, copied, sold, resold, visited, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose without express written consent of the Company. You may not frame or utilize framing techniques to enclose any trademark, logo, or other proprietary information (including images, text, page layout, or form) of the Company without express written consent.

You may use the Company Services only as permitted by law. The licenses granted by the Company terminate if you do not comply with these Conditions of Use or any Service Terms.
All orders are subject to product availability. If an item is not in stock at the time you place your order, we will notify you and refund you the total amount of your order should you choose not to take delivery of another item, using the original method of payment.
Items offered on our websites are only available for delivery to addresses within the established service areas for each location. If you are not sure you reside within an established service area, contact the nearest store.
An estimated delivery time will be provided to you once your order is received. Delivery times are to be used as a guide only and are subject to the acceptance and approval of your order. Unless there are exceptional circumstances, we make every effort to fulfill your order within the next business day from the date of your order. Business days are Monday to Saturday, except holidays. Date of delivery may vary due to product availability, delivery location, method of delivery, and the items ordered.
You may need your own Company account to use certain Company Services, and you may be required to be logged in to the account and have a valid payment method associated with it. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your account, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password.
The Company respects the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please follow our Notice and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement.
RISK OF LOSS
All rentals of physical items from the Company are made pursuant to a rental agreement. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to you. Please refer to the terms of said agreement for details. The risk of loss and title for items purchased from the Company also pass on to you upon successful completion of that transaction.
The Company attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, the Company does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of any Company Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by the Company itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
With respect to items sold by the Company, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order it. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If the correct price of an item sold by the Company is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before delivery or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
List Price is the suggested retail price of a product as provided by a manufacturer or supplier. Cash Price (or Same As Cash Price) is the retail price of the item offered by the Company. Weekly and Monthly Rates are the prices per week/month before taxes and other applicable fees charged for the item when acquired through a rental agreement. Weekly and Monthly Terms are the number of weeks/months to pay in order to acquire ownership if Weekly/Biweekly/Monthly payments are made. RTO Disclosure (maximum total of payments) is calculated by multiplying Weekly Rate times Weekly Term. 120 Days Same As Cash is the time period allowed for exercising a Same As Cash option. Early Purchase Option, governed by state law and details provided in the rental agreement, allows you acquire ownership of the item and pay less than the total of payments.
When you use apps created by the Company, you may grant certain permissions to us for your device. Most mobile devices provide you with information about these permissions.
SANCTIONS AND EXPORT POLICY
You may not use any Company Service if you are the subject of U.S. sanctions or of sanctions consistent with U.S. law imposed by the governments of the country where you are using Company Services. You must comply with all U.S. or other export and re-export restrictions that may apply to goods, software (including Company Software), technology, and services.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
THE COMPANY SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE COMPANY SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY COMPANY ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. THE COMPANY MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE COMPANY SERVICES, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE COMPANY SERVICES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE COMPANY SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, THE COMPANY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE COMPANY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE COMPANY SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE COMPANY SERVICES, COMPANY’S SERVERS OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM COMPANY ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, THE COMPANY WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF ANY COMPANY SERVICE, OR FROM ANY INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH ANY COMPANY SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Company Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Company or through Company’s websites will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our corporate office. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) or JAMS, The Resolution Experts (“JAMS”) at your choice.
For complete details, consult your Arbitration Agreement provided with your rental agreement.
By using any Company Service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state where the the rental or sale of the product is consummated, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and the Company.
