Equipment Lease Agreement

THIS EQUIPMENT LEASE AGREEMENT ("Lease") is made and effective by clicking on the “Place Order” button, by and between The Lens Depot.com, LLC, ("Lessor") and current user ("Lessee").  By clicking on the “Place Order” button, Lessee agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, whether or not Lessee has read them.  Lessor may at its sole discretion modify these Terms and Conditions at any time and any modifications shall become effective immediately as posted on this site.  By clicking on the “Place Order” button, Lessee indicates acceptance of the modified Terms and Conditions.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and promises hereinafter set forth, the parties hereto agree as follows:

1. Lease.

Lessor hereby leases to Lessee, and Lessee hereby leases from Lessor, the following described equipment (the "Equipment"): shown in the order preview above.

2. Term.

Shipped orders-The term of this Lease shall commence on the day the equipment has been delivered or the first attempt was made by UPS to deliver the item. The equipment must be shipped to Lessor before the last pick up of the day on the last day of the associated rental period.

Local orders- The term of this lease shall commence on the day and time the equipment is picked up and will expire on the last day and time of the associated rental period. The equipment must be returned to Lessor during regular business hours by the scheduled time on the last day of the rental period. 

Failure to return rental property or equipment upon expiration of the rental period and failure to pay all amounts due (including costs for damage to the property or equipment) are prima facie evidence of intent to defraud, punishable in accordance with section 812.155, Florida Statutes.


3. Shipping.

Lessee is responsible for shipping the Equipment back to Lessor.   Lessor currently ships five days a week (Monday through Friday). Lessor will send Lessee an email at the email address Lessee has provided when Equipment is shipped.  Lessor will send Lessee an email at the email address Lessee has provided when Equipment rented by Lessee is returned. Lessor will only ship to verified addresses within the US. Lessor will not ship to a hotel and or a resort of any kind. Lessor cannot guarantee when an order will arrive.  Consider any shipping or transit time offered by Lessor or other parties only as an estimate. Lessee is encouraged to order in a timely fashion to avoid delays caused by shipping and or holidays. 
Both the outbound (from Lessor to Lessee’s premises) and inbound (from Lessee back to Lessor) shipping charges for the order will be paid in advance and in full.  It is the sole responsibility of the Lessee to obtain a receipt when shipping a package back to Lessor. Packages cannot be dropped off in a drop box since a receipt will not be available. If a package is deemed lost, not accounted for or not dropped off or picked up and the Lessee fails to prove shipment with a receipt, Lessee is liable for the retail cost of items rented.

4. Rent.

The rent for the Equipment shall be paid in advance in full.

5. Cancellations.

Cancellations are made by contacting us via phone or e-mail. Cancellations made within 3 business days of scheduled shipment or pick-up will incur 50% of the 3 day rate for each item rented. For 1 day rental orders, fee will be 50% of rental.

Failure to pick up a 1 day rental will result in a 100% cancellation fee.  Failure to pick up a 3 Day rental on a Friday from any of our locations will result in a 100% cancellation fee.

What happens if I miss my scheduled local pick-up date?

If you are unable to make your scheduled pick up date you must notify us before the end of business to make other arrangements. If we do not hear from you, your rental period will start on your originally requested pick-up date. 

Failure to pick up a 1 day rental will result in a 100% cancellation fee.  Failure to pick up a 3 Day rental on a Friday from any of our locations will result in a 100% cancellation fee.

 

6. Use.

Lessee shall use the Equipment in a careful and proper manner and shall comply with and conform to all national, state, municipal, police and other laws, ordinances and regulations in any way relating to the possession, use, or maintenance of the Equipment.  Lessee bears the full responsibility for determining, prior to entering into this Lease that the Equipment is suitable for the use and purposes intended by Lessee.

7. Right to Lease.

Lessor warrants that Lessor has the right to lease the Equipment, as provided in this Lease.

8. Order Acceptance Policy.

Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify Lessor’s acceptance of Lessee’s order, nor does it constitute confirmation of Lessor’s offer to rent.  Lessor reserves the right at any time after receipt of Lessee’s order to accept or decline Lessee’s order or to supply less than the quantity Lessee ordered of any item for any reason.  By checking the “Place Order” button, you authorize Lessor to obtain an ID/Age and background verification check prior to acceptance of the order of at any time prior to your complete performance under this Lease.

Additional Requirements: Lessor reserves the right to request a Certificate of Insurance or a full retail deposit on any order and for any reason.  Certificate of Insurance must list The Lens Depot.com, LLC as the Loss Payee and cover the replacement value of the rental equipment.

9. Ownership.

The Equipment is, and shall at all times be and remain, the sole and exclusive property of Lessor; and the Lessee shall have no right, title or interest therein or thereto except as expressly set forth in this Lease.

10. Repairs.

Lessor shall keep the Equipment in good repair, condition and working order and shall furnish any and all parts, mechanisms and devices required to keep the Equipment in good mechanical working order.
Lessee shall not in any way repair or alter the physical or other makeup of the Equipment.

11. Lost, Damaged, or Unreturned Equipment.

Lessee hereby assumes and shall bear the entire risk of loss and damage to the Equipment from any and every cause. No loss or damage to the Equipment or any part thereof shall impair any obligation of Lessee under this Lease which shall continue in full force and effect through the term of the Lease.
In the event of damage of any kind to the Equipment, Lessee agrees to allow Lessor to charge Lessee’s credit card for the full cost of repair of said damaged Equipment.  Lessor expressly reserves the right to choose the repair method and venue, within reasonable market value terms.  Lessee and Lessor agree to be bound, legally and otherwise, by the report of Lessor’s chosen repair venue as to the cause of the damage to the Equipment.
Damage or Loss of the equipment during the rental period is entirely the renter’s responsibility. If the renter has not notified The Lens Depot.com LLC of damage within 3 hours of receiving the equipment, both parties agree the equipment was received in good working order.

  1.  In the event of loss, loss without explanation and or stolen equipment or default, customer agrees to pay the full retail cost of the equipment to Lessor plus an additional 3% to cover credit card transaction fees.
  2. In the event of damage to the equipment, customer agrees to pay 100% of actual repair costs(plus 20.00 for shipping to the repair facility) deemed necessary by the appropriate factory service center or the replacement cost if not repairable.  If you do select the damage waiver and the item is repairable, you would be responsible for 10% of the replacement value OR the cost of the repair itself plus shipping to the repair facility, whichever is less.

C.  In the event that customer claims the equipment “failed” rather than was damaged, the report of the factory service center will be considered binding concerning equipment failure or damage.

  1. It is strongly suggested that customers obtain the damage waiver on the item for the duration of the rental period. Minor scratches to the lens barrel and hood are considered the results of ordinary wear and tear and will not result in damage assessments. Scratches to the glass, damage to the coupling or any other part that affects the lens', cameras’, accessories’ performance will be considered damage and will result in a charge of 100% of the actual repair costs or the value of the equipment if not repairable.

Our acceptance of equipment on return (shipped or local pick-up) is not a waiver by us of any claims for damage to the equipment.

E. Water and or liquid damage of any sort is not covered by the optional damage waiver.

 

In the event of loss, loss without explanation, stolen, unreturned, damaged beyond repair (including any liquid damage of any sort) or default, Lessee agrees to allow Lessor to charge Lessee’s credit card for the full retail price of a comparable substitute of Equipment based on current pricing from www.bhphoto.com plus an additional 3% to cover credit card transaction fees.  The full retail price of a comparable substitute will be charged in addition to the late fees assessed prior to deeming the Equipment “lost” or “unreturned.”  If the overdue charges are denied by the Lessee’s credit card, and the Lessee has not contacted Lessor regarding the overdue rental, the Lessee understands that Lessee's account will be turned over to the appropriate authorities for prosecution.

Failure to return rental property or equipment upon expiration of the rental period and failure to pay all amounts due (including costs for damage to the property or equipment) are prima facie evidence of intent to defraud, punishable in accordance with section 812.155, Florida Statutes.

Equipment is deemed to be “unreturned and stolen” when Lessee has failed to ship, or drop off (if picked up locally) Equipment to Lessor within three (3) days of expiration of rental term.  If Lessee returns original Equipment, in undamaged state, to Lessor within five (5) days of expiration of Term, the charge to Lessee’s credit card for the price of a comparable substitute will be refunded to Lessee by Lessor and a late fee will be charged to Lessee’s credit card.  After five (5) days, all sales are final.

It is the Lessee’s responsibility to get a receipt from UPS when dropping off a package for shipment back to the Lessor to validate actual shipment.

Late returns.

In the event of a late return, Lessee agrees to allow Lessor to charge Lessee’s credit card for the appropriate late fee. Late fees will be calculated at the one day rate per item per day. Rentals not dropped off or shipped back on a Friday will automatically be extended at the 3 day rental rate. An order is considered late if the Equipment is not returned on the due date and Lessee and Lessor have not agreed to an extension of the rental period. Renter agrees that said fee will be charged to the same credit card used for the rental purchase.  If the overdue charges are denied by the Lessee’s credit card, and the Lessee has not contacted Lessor regarding the late fees, the Lessee understands that Lessee's account can be considered stolen and turned over to the authorities under Florida statute 812.155 as detailed above.

12. Availability.

Any estimate of availability provided by Lessor is based on the assumption that each of Lessor’s customers returns Equipment within prescribed term period. 
 

13. Surrender.

Upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Lessee shall return the Equipment to Lessor in good repair, condition and working order, ordinary wear and tear resulting from proper use thereof alone excepted, by delivering the Equipment at Lessee's cost and expense via the shipping method of Lessor's choice.  Ordinary wear and tear is to be determined at the discretion of the Lessor within the confines of the reasonably common and ordinary meanings of those terms.  Lessee will be responsible for proper packaging of the return shipment using shipping and packaging materials as provided by Lessor in the order shipment.
Lessor’s acceptance of the Equipment upon return by Lessee shall not represent Lessor’s determination as to condition of Equipment upon return.  Lessor reserves the right to accept Equipment upon return by Lessee and make determinations regarding the condition of the Equipment within a reasonable amount of time.  Lessor’s determination as to the condition of the Equipment upon return by Lessee is binding under this Section and Section 11 (“Lost, Damaged, or Unreturned Equipment.”).

14. Taxes.

Lessee shall keep the Equipment free and clear of all levies, liens and encumbrances. Lessee, or Lessor at Lessee's expense, shall report, pay and discharge when due all license and registration fees, assessments, sales, use and property taxes, gross receipts, taxes arising out of receipts from use or operation of the Equipment, and other taxes, fees and governmental charges similar or dissimilar to the foregoing, together with any penalties or interest thereon, imposed by any state, federal or local government or any agency, or department thereof, upon the Equipment or the purchase, use, operation or leasing of the Equipment or otherwise in any manner with respect thereto and whether or not the same shall be assessed against or in the name of Lessor or Lessee. However, Lessee shall not be required to pay or discharge any such tax or assessment so long as it shall, in good faith and by appropriate legal proceedings, contest the validity thereof in any reasonable manner which will not affect or endanger the title and interest of Lessor to the Equipment; provided, Lessee shall reimburse Lessor for any damages or expenses resulting from such failure to pay or discharge.

15.  Drone Rental.

Lessee agrees that they will operate the Drone in accordance with The Lens Depot.com’s Rental Agreement, operating guidelines and in accordance with Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) guidelines.  Lessee shall not operate any Drone for non-hobby or non-recreational purposes without prior FAA authorization.  Lessee shall operate the Drone in accordance with the FAA’s safety guidelines.  Lessee has read and understands the statutory parameters of operation of the Drone as outlined in Section 336 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012.  Lessee agrees to indemnify and hold The Lens Depot.com and its representatives harmless for any and all damages and claims arising out of or relating to any violation of this provision.

THE LENS DEPOT.COM  SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE, INJURY OR DEATH ARISING FROM ANY ACT OR OMISSION IN CONNECTION WITH LESSEE’S POSSESSION, USE, OPERATION, MANAGEMENT OR MAINTENANCE OF THE LEASED DRONE.  LESSEE SHALL INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS THE LENS DEPOT.COM FROM AND AGAINST ANY AND ALL LIABILITY, LOSS, COST, ACTIONS OR CAUSES OF ACTION, CLAIMS OR EXPENSE SUSTAINED BY THE LENS DEPOT.COM, INCLUDING ATTORNEY’S FEES AND OTHER EXPENSES OF LITIGATION, ARISING OUT OF, CONNECTED WITH OR RESULTING FROM THE LESSEE’S USE OF LEASED DRONE EVEN IF LIABILITY FOR THE DAMAGE, INJURY OR DEATH IS ALLEGED OR FOUND TO BE PARTIALLY THE RESULT OF THE LENS DEPOT.COM’S  NEGLIGENCE.
