Unless otherwise specified in these Terms, all SNS Content, if any, will be considered to be Member Content for all purposes of these Terms.

Please note that if a Third-Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or HandyQuip's access to such Third-Party Account is terminated by the Third-Party Service provider, then SNS Content will no longer be available on and through the Site, Services and Application. You have the ability to disable the connection between your HandyQuip Account and your Third-Party Accounts, at any time, by accessing the "Account Settings" section of the Site and Application.

Listings by Vendors
As a Member, you may create or contribute to create Listings, for which you will be asked a variety of questions about the Equipment to be listed, including, but not limited to: category, brand, model, type, size, capacity, condition, features, availability, pricing, delivery, related rules, and financial terms. All Vendors must have a valid physical store address. Listings will be made publicly available via the Site, Application and Services. Other users and Members will be able to book your Equipment on the Site, Application or Services based upon the information provided in your Listing. You understand and agree that once a Client requests a Booking of your Equipment, you may not request the Client to pay a price higher than that originally stated in the Listing.
You acknowledge and agree that you alone are responsible for any and all Listings and Member Content you post or contribute to. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post or contribute to, and the Booking of, or a Client's use of, Equipment in a Listing you post or contribute to (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties, such as equipment manufacturers, equipment distributors, lease or rental agreements, and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Equipment included in any Listings you post or contribute to (including having all required permits, licenses and registrations), and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that HandyQuip assumes no responsibility for a Vendor's compliance with any agreements with or duties to third parties, applicable laws, rules and regulations. HandyQuip reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listings for any reason, including Listings that HandyQuip, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or HandyQuip's then-current Policies, or otherwise harmful to the Site, Application or Services.
In order to facilitate connections between Vendors and Clients, Listings may be generated automatically by the Site, Application or Services, on behalf of a Vendor, and based on the Vendor’s Content, by means of HandyQuip’s proprietary technology. Such automated Listings may result in Booking requests, some of which may in turn result in Booking confirmations by HandyQuip. You, as a Vendor, agree to honor any confirmed Bookings for your Equipment, whether generated automatically or not by HandyQuip, per the terms and conditions set forth in the "Bookings and Financial Terms" section.
If you are a Vendor, you understand and agree that HandyQuip does not act as an insurer or as your contracting agent. If a Client requests a Booking of your Equipment and uses your Equipment, any agreement you enter into with such Client is between you and the Client and HandyQuip is not a party to it. Notwithstanding the foregoing, HandyQuip serves as the limited authorized payment collection agent of the Vendor for the purpose of accepting, on behalf of the Vendor, payments from Clients of such amounts stipulated by the Vendor or HandyQuip on behalf of the Vendor (including other Fees and/or Taxes).
If you are a Vendor, HandyQuip makes certain tools and information available to you to help you make informed decisions about which Members you choose to provide with Equipment booked via the Site, Application or Services. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Vendor, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions, and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any persons, associated to you or not, who provide Clients with Equipment on your behalf.
HandyQuip recommends that Vendors obtain appropriate insurance for their Equipment. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Equipment 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 Clients (and any Invitees a Client may allow to use, manipulate, transport, or maintain your Equipment, if applicable) while using your Equipment.
HandyQuip may offer Vendors the option of having professional photographs taken of their Equipment to include in their Listings. If you, as a Vendor, choose to use a photographer, the photographs taken will have a watermark bearing the words "HandyQuip.com Verified Photo" or similar wording ("Verified Images"). You understand and agree that you alone are responsible for ensuring that your Listing is accurately represented in the Verified Images. You alone are responsible for using the Verified Images and you warrant that you will cease to use the Verified Images or any other images if such images cease to accurately represent your Listings. All images, materials and Content created by these photographers, including Verified Images, constitute HandyQuip Content, regardless of whether you include them in your Listing. You understand and agree that HandyQuip may use the Verified Images for advertising, marketing, commercial and other business purposes in any media or platform, whether in relation to your Listings or otherwise, without further notice or compensation.
Covered Entities Under HIPAA, 42 C.F.R. § 160, et Seq.
HandyQuip does not endorse any Member or any Equipment. You understand that Verified Images are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of the Equipment at the time the photograph was taken. Verified Images are therefore not an endorsement by HandyQuip of any Member or any Equipment. Members are required by these Terms to provide accurate information, and although HandyQuip may undertake additional checks and processes designed to help verify or check the identities or backgrounds of users, we do not make any representations about, confirm, or endorse any Member or the Member's purported identity or background.
Any references in the Site, Application or Services to a Member being "verified" or "connected" (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification process, and does not represent anything else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by HandyQuip about any Member, including of the Member's identity and whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. Instead, any such description is intended to be useful information for you to evaluate when you make your own decisions about the identity and suitability of others whom you contact, interact with via the Site, Application or Services, or provide with Equipment. We therefore recommend that you always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to conduct transactions with a Vendor or to complete a Booking with a Client, or to have any other interaction with any other Member. We are not responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other Members.
By using the Site, Application or Services, you understand and agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from HandyQuip with respect to such actions or omissions. This limitation shall not apply to any claim by a Vendor against HandyQuip regarding the remittance of payments received from a Client by HandyQuip on behalf of a Vendor, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled "Limitation of Liability".
"Client Fees" means the fees that HandyQuip charges a Client for using the Services, which are calculated as a percentage of the applicable Equipment Fees. The Client Fees will be included in the price displayed to the Client when the Client is asked to request a Booking on the Site or Application.
"Delivery Fees" means the amounts that a Vendor charges a Client for delivering and/or picking up Equipment to and/or from the Client’s location specified in a Booking. Delivery Fees are calculated with delivery pricing models controlled by HandyQuip, which may be customized by Vendors.
"Equipment Fees" means the amounts that are due and payable by a Client in exchange for that Client's use of Equipment. The Vendor alone, and not HandyQuip, is responsible for the Equipment Fees for his or her Listing. The Vendor may in his or her sole discretion decide to include in these amounts (i) any fees permitted on the HandyQuip platform, or (ii) Taxes that the Vendor determines that he or she has to collect.
"Points" means the Client loyalty measure used by HandyQuip.
"Rewards" means the amounts by which a Client may reduce the balance due during a transaction.
"Rent-to-Own Price" means the total amount that a Client must have paid to own Equipment at the end of a rental.
"Round-Up Donations" means the amounts received by HandyQuip in payment of a confirmed Booking, net of Total Fees. Round-Up Donations have a value ranging from US $0.01 to US $1.00, and bring the final amount paid for a confirmed Booking to the next whole US dollar amount. For example, if a Client’s Total Fees equal US $X.37, HandyQuip may offer a donation opportunity amount for US $0.63. If a Client’s Total Fees are a whole US dollar amount (e.g. US $X.00), HandyQuip may offer a donation opportunity amount for US $1.00.
"Replacement Value" means the security deposit ("Security Deposit") amount, if applicable, that HandyQuip charges to a Client to compensate a Vendor if the Client fails to return the Equipment or returns the Equipment in a condition that the Vendor deems innacceptable.
"Service Fees" means collectively the Client Fees and the Vendor Fees.
"Total Fees" means collectively the Equipment Fees, the Delivery Fees, the Client Fees plus any Taxes in respect to these amounts.
"Vendor Fees" means the fees, if applicable, that HandyQuip charges a Vendor for using the Services, which is calculated as a percentage of the applicable Equipment Fees. The Vendor Fees will be displayed to the Vendor when a Booking is confirmed on the Site or Application.
Bookings and Financial Terms
Vendors and Clients
You, as a Vendor, not HandyQuip, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed Bookings and providing any Equipment reserved through the Site, Application and Services. If you are a Vendor and a Booking is requested for your Equipment via the Site, Application or Services, your Booking will be confirmed or rejected by HandyQuip, which may involve automatic systems and methods.
If you are a Vendor and a Booking is confirmed via the Site, Application or Services, we will send you an email, text message or message via the Site or Application confirming such Booking, depending on the selections you make via the Site, Application and Services. We may also share with you (i) the first and last name of the Client who has requested the Booking, (ii) a link to the Client's HandyQuip Account profile page, if applicable, (iii) if the Client and Vendor have both connected their HandyQuip accounts to SNS, the names of any members of an SNS with whom you are "friends" or associated on the SNS if such individuals are also "friends" or associated with the Client on such SNS, and (iv) an indication of whether or not the Client has provided other information to HandyQuip, such as a verified email address, connection to SNSs, or a government ID. If you are a Vendor and you are unable to provide the Equipment after a Booking has been confirmed, any amounts collected by you or HandyQuip for the requested Booking will be refunded to the applicable Client's credit card and any pre-authorization of such credit card will be released per the cancellation policy (defined below), if applicable.
HandyQuip will collect the Total Fees and the Round-Up Donations, if applicable, at the time of the Booking confirmation (i.e. when HandyQuip confirms the Booking request) and will initiate payment of the Equipment Fees and the Delivery Fees, minus the Vendor Fees, to the Vendor within 24 hours of when the Client is provided with the Equipment specified in the Booking (except to the extent that a refund is due to the Client). HandyQuip will retain the Service Fees, the Round-Up Donations, if applicable, and any Taxes in respect of these amounts. The time it takes for the Vendor to receive payouts may depend upon the payout method chosen by the Vendor. Some methods involve the use of third-party payment processors, who may impose their own additional charges for the use of their services on the Vendor, including by deducting their charges from the payout amount.
If you owe or agree to pay any amount to HandyQuip (whether as a result of your Bookings or actions as a Client or otherwise), then HandyQuip may (but is not obliged to) withhold the amount from any payout amounts due to you as a Vendor, and use the withheld amount to setoff the amount owed by you to HandyQuip. If HandyQuip does so, then your obligation to pay HandyQuip will be extinguished to the extent of the amount withheld by HandyQuip, and HandyQuip will cease to owe to you any obligations (including, but not limited to, any obligation to pay you) with respect to the amount withheld. In addition to the amount due, if your account is delinquent or you otherwise have chargebacks on your account, you may be charged fees that are incidental to our collection of these delinquent amounts and chargebacks. Such fees or charges may include collection fees, convenience fees, or other third party charges. You hereby explicitly agree that all communications in relation to delinquent accounts will be made by electronic mail or by phone, as provided to HandyQuip by you. Such communications may be made by HandyQuip or by anyone on its behalf, including but not limited to a third party collection agent.
The Vendors, not HandyQuip, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed Bookings and providing any Equipment reserved through the Site, Application and Services. If you, as a Client, choose to enter into a transaction with a Vendor for the Booking of Equipment, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Vendor and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Equipment imposed by the Vendor. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not HandyQuip, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that HandyQuip is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations hereunder, HandyQuip disclaims any and all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding the fact that HandyQuip is not a party to the agreement between you and the Vendor, HandyQuip acts as the Vendor's payment collection agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Vendor. Upon your payment of the Total Fees and the Round-Up Donations, if applicable, to HandyQuip, your payment obligation to the Vendor for the Equipment Fees and the Delivery Fees is extinguished, and HandyQuip is responsible for remitting the Equipment Fees and the Delivery Fees, minus the Vendor Fees, in the manner described in these Terms. In the event that HandyQuip does not remit any such amounts as described in these Terms, such Vendor will have recourse only against such HandyQuip entity.
The Total Fees and the Round-Up Donations, if applicable, payable will be displayed to a Client before the Client submits a Booking request via the Site or Application. As noted above, the Booking request will be confirmed or rejected by HandyQuip. If a confirmed Booking is cancelled (i.e. rejected by the applicable Vendor), any amounts collected by you or HandyQuip for the said Booking will be refunded to such Client’s applicable credit card, depending on the selections the Client makes via the Site and Application, and any pre-authorization of such Client's credit card will be released per the cancellation policy (defined below), if applicable.
You, as a Client, agree to pay HandyQuip for the Total Fees and the Round-Up Donations, if applicable, in connection with any confirmed Bookings. In order to establish a Booking, you understand and agree that HandyQuip, on behalf of the Vendor, reserve the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorization via your credit card for the Total Fees, Round-Up Donations, and Security Deposit, if applicable, or (ii) charge your credit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one US dollar (US $1) to verify your credit card. As a general rule, HandyQuip will collect the Total Fees, the Round-Up Donations, and Security Deposit, if applicable, that are due once HandyQuip confirms your Booking; if necessary, Total Fees, Round-Up Donations, and Security Deposit, if applicable, may instead be collected at a later point. Please note that HandyQuip cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Client by his or her bank related to HandyQuip's collection of the Total Fees and Round-Up Donations, and HandyQuip disclaims any and all liability in this regard.
Cancellation and Refund Policy
A confirmed Booking may be cancelled by a Client during the Cancellation Period of the first Equipment to be issued in that Booking.
If you, as a Client, wish to cancel a confirmed Booking made via the Site, Application or Services, you must do so by using the Booking cancellation feature on the Site or Application, or by notifying HandyQuip as outlined in the Contact page during the Cancellation Period for such Booking. For each valid cancellation request, HandyQuip will cancel any pre-authorization to your credit card and/or refund any nominal amounts charged to your credit card in connection with the confirmed Booking within a commercially reasonable time. Our ability to refund the Equipment Fees, the Delivery Fees and other amounts charged to you will depend upon the terms of the applicable cancellation policy contained in the applicable Listing, as set by each Vendor. Details regarding cancellation and refunds are available in the Service Guarantee policy. The Client Fees are non-refundable regardless of the cancellation policy selected by the Vendor. You, as a Client, understand and agree that you will be charged the full value of your Booking, in accordance with the terms outlined in the "Bookings and Financial Terms" section, if you cancel your Booking outside of the Cancellation Period, or as soon as you have been issued the Equipment specified in the Booking, i.e. the Equipment has been picked up from or delivered by the Vendor.
If you, as a Vendor, wish to cancel a confirmed Booking made via the Site, Application or Services, you must do so by using the Booking cancellation feature on the Site or Application, or by notifying HandyQuip as outlined in the Contact page during the Cancellation Period for such Booking. For each valid cancellation request, (i) HandyQuip will cancel any pre-authorization to the Client’s credit card and/or refund any nominal amounts charged to the Client’s credit card in connection with the confirmed Booking within a commercially reasonable time, and (ii) the Client will receive an email or other communication from HandyQuip containing alternative Listings and other related information. If the Client requests a Booking from one of the alternative Listings and HandyQuip confirms the Client’s requested Booking of Equipment from the Vendor associated with such alternative Listing, then the Client agrees to pay HandyQuip the Total Fees and the Round-Up Donations, if applicable, relating to the confirmed Booking for the Equipment in the alternative Listing, in accordance with these Terms. If a Vendor cancelled a confirmed Booking and you, as a Client, have not received an email or other communication from HandyQuip, please notify HandyQuip as outlined in the Contact page.
You, as a Vendor, understand and agree that HandyQuip may apply penalties or consequences to you or your Listing anytime you cancel a confirmed Booking or if you refuse to honor a confirmed Booking, including (i) publishing an automated review on your Listing indicating that a reservation was cancelled, (ii) keeping the calendar for your Listing unavailable or blocked for the dates of the cancelled Booking, or (iii) imposing a cancellation fee or charging the full value of the applicable Vendor Fees (to be withheld from your future payouts or charged to the credit card on file in your HandyQuip Account). You will be notified of the situations in which a cancellation fee applies before you decide to cancel.
If you are a Vendor and your Client cancels a confirmed Booking, or if HandyQuip decides that it is necessary to cancel a confirmed Booking, and HandyQuip issues a refund to the Client in accordance with the Service Guarantee policy or other applicable cancellation policies, you understand and agree that in the event you have already been paid, HandyQuip shall be entitled to recover the amount of any such Client refund from you, including by subtracting such refund amount from any future Equipment Fees or Delivery Fees due to you.
In rare circumstances, HandyQuip may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary or desirable to cancel, without any limitations, a confirmed Booking made via the Site, Application or Services, or override the Service Guarantee policy or other applicable cancellation policies. This may be for no reason, or for reason of extenuating circumstances (when valid, contingent on proper documentation) including, but not limited to:
- death in the Client's family;
- serious illness suffered by the Client or Client's family;
- natural disaster at the Booking destination;
- political unrest at the Booking destination; or
- jury duty or similar civil obligation for the Client.
HandyQuip may also determine, in its sole discretion, to refund to the Client part or all of the amounts charged to the Client in accordance with the Service Guarantee policy. You understand and agree that HandyQuip and the relevant Client or Vendor will not have any liability for such cancellations or refunds.
Appointment of HandyQuip as Limited Payment Collection Agent for Vendors
Each Vendor hereby appoints HandyQuip as the Vendor's limited payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting the Equipment Fees and the Delivery Fees from Clients.
Each Vendor agrees that payment made by a Client through HandyQuip, shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Vendor, and the Vendor will make the Equipment available to the Client in the agreed-upon manner as if the Vendor had received the Equipment Fees and the Delivery Fees, minus the Vendor Fees. Each Vendor agrees that HandyQuip may, in accordance with the cancellation policy selected by the Vendor and reflected in the Booking request, (i) permit the Client to cancel the confirmed Booking and (ii) refund to the Client that portion of the Equipment Fees and Delivery Fees specified in the applicable cancellation policy. Each Vendor understands that HandyQuip accepts payments from Clients as the Vendor's limited payment collection agent and that HandyQuip’s obligation to pay the Vendor is subject to and conditional upon successful receipt of the associated payments from Clients. HandyQuip does not guarantee payments to Vendors for amounts that have not been successfully received by HandyQuip from Clients. In accepting appointment as the limited authorized agent of the Vendor, HandyQuip assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Vendor.
HandyQuip does not currently charge fees for the creation of Listings. However, you, as a Vendor, acknowledge and agree that HandyQuip reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the creation of Listings. Please note that HandyQuip will provide notice of any Listing fees collection via the Site, Application and Services, prior to implementing such a Listing fees feature.
HandyQuip charges the Service Fees for the use of its technology platform. Where applicable, Taxes may also be charged in respect of the Vendor Fees and Client Fees. HandyQuip deducts the Vendor Fees from the Equipment Fees before remitting the balance to the Vendor as described in these Terms. Client Fees are, as noted above, included in the Total Fees. Balances will be remitted by HandyQuip to Vendors via check, PayPal, direct deposit or other payment methods, as described on the Site or via the Application, in US dollars. Amounts may be rounded up or down as described the "Rounding Off" section below.
Vendors may choose to include security deposits in their Listings (collectively, the "Security Deposits"). Each Listing will describe whether a Security Deposit is required for the applicable Equipment. If a Security Deposit is included for an Equipment in a confirmed Booking, and a Vendor makes a claim against such Security Deposit, HandyQuip will, in its capacity as the payment collection agent of the Vendor, use its commercially reasonable efforts to charge the Client's payment method in the amount of the Security Deposit, within a reasonable period of time after the Vendor notifies HandyQuip of a dispute. HandyQuip will also use its commercially reasonable efforts to address Vendors' requests and claims related to Security Deposits, but HandyQuip is not responsible for administering or accepting any claims by Vendors related to Security Deposits, and disclaims any and all liability in this regard.
During a rental, a Client may exercise the option to purchase Equipment from a Vendor by paying a Rent-to-Own Price, if applicable. To exercise a Rent-to-Own option, a Client must notify HandyQuip that they wish to purchase the Equipment at least 1 day before the end of the rental period. HandyQuip will confirm the Rent-to-Own order and collect a charge from the Client on behalf of the Vendor equal to the Rent-to-Own Price minus the Equipment Fees already paid at booking, plus applicable Client Fees. Rent-to-Own transactions are conducted exclusively between Clients and Vendors and HandyQuip is only involved as a limited payment collector acting on behalf of Vendors. HandyQuip does not make any representations and does not warrant that the Equipment is fit for use or for any other purpose. Clients and Vendors are responsible for their own compliance with all laws and regulations related to the sale of medical equipment including, but not limited to, sales terms, transfer of property rights, taxes and warranties. Once a Rent-to-Own charge is successfully collected from a Client, the Equipment booking on the Site and Application is closed and the Vendor is solely responsible for completing the Rent-to-Own sale directly with the Client. When a Client exercises this Rent-to-Own option, Client accepts the Equipment "As Is" and "Where Is".
When booking Equipment, Clients may elect to make Round-Up Donations to a cause or charity (collectively, the "Donation Recipients") of their choice. HandyQuip reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to select (i) which Donation Recipient to include on the Site, Application or Services, and (ii) how to make Round-Up Donations available to their respective Donation Recipients, including, but not limited to, consolidating multiple donations made to the same Donation Recipient, or choosing the schedule or method to transfer donations to a Donation Recipient. To the extent provided under applicable law, HandyQuip will make the entirety of Round-Up Donations amounts available to their respective Donation Recipients. We do not take any responsibility and disclaim any and all liability for the use or intended use of Round-Up Donations by Donation Recipients. For each Round-Up Donation, the Client in question is responsible for his or her own compliance with all laws and regulations, including Tax regulations, applicable to such donations, pledges or fund-raising. You further understand and agree that any Round-Up Donations will not place HandyQuip under any fiduciary or other obligation to you.
HandyQuip may, in its sole discretion, round up or round down amounts that are payable from or to Clients or Vendors to the nearest whole functional base unit in which the currency is denominated (e.g. to the nearest US dollar); for example, HandyQuip will round up an amount of US $101.50 to US $102.00, and US $101.49 to US $101.00.
Tax regulations may require us to collect appropriate Tax information from our Vendors, or to withhold Taxes from payouts to Vendors, or both. For instance, IRS regulations stipulate that we may collect an IRS Form 1099-K from our U.S. Vendors. You, as a Vendor, are solely responsible for keeping the information in your tax forms current, complete and accurate. If you, as a Vendor, fail to provide us with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to alleviate our obligation (if any) to withhold Taxes from payments to you (e.g. where you are a U.S. Vendor and you fail to provide us with a completed IRS Form 1099-K), we reserve the right in our sole discretion to freeze all payouts to you until resolution, to withhold such amounts as required by law, or to do both.
You, as a Vendor, understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining (i) your applicable Tax reporting requirements, and (ii) the Taxes that should be included, and for including Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings. You are also solely responsible for remitting to the relevant authority any Taxes included or received by you. HandyQuip cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members.
You, as a Vendor, understand and acknowledge that appropriate governmental agencies, departments or authorities (the "Tax Authority") where your Equipment is located may require Taxes to be collected from Clients or Vendors on the amount paid for the right to use Services and Equipment, 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 Equipment Fees set by Vendors, a set amount per day, or other variations, and are sometimes called "sales and use taxes".
Except as required by law, you are solely responsible for compiling and retaining permanent records of all transactions and other data associated with your HandyQuip Account. HandyQuip may provide portals, reports, and breakdowns of your transactions and payouts through the Site, Application or Services, and may maintain records for the previous 18 months, subject to change without notice.
You agree to notify HandyQuip of any discrepancies arising from any reconciliations or audits. We will investigate any reported discrepancies and attempt to rectify any errors that you or we discover. In the event you are owed money as a result of the discrepancy, we will remit funds. Your failure to notify us of an error or discrepancy within sixty (60) days of when it first appears in your HandyQuip account (e.g., in any portals or reporting provided to you) will be deemed a waiver of any right to amounts owed to you in connection with any such error or discrepancy in processing your card payments.
If you submit or cause us to process transactions erroneously, you agree to contact us immediately. We will investigate any reported errors and attempt to rectify any errors that you or we discover. In its sole discretion, HandyQuip may credit or debit, as appropriate, the same payment method used for the original payout to or payment by a Client, so that the Client receives or disburses the correct amount. HandyQuip may only correct transactions that you process incorrectly if and when you notify us of such an error, unless we are otherwise made aware of it. Your failure to notify us of any error within thirty (30) days of when it first appears on your electronic transaction history will be deemed a waiver of any right to amounts owed to you.
Damage to Equipment
You, as a Client, are responsible for returning the Equipment in the condition it was in when it was issued to you. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Client, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any Invitees whom you let use, manipulate, transport, or maintain the Equipment. In the event that a Vendor claims otherwise and provides evidence of damage, including but not limited to photographs, you agree to pay the cost of replacing damaged Equipment with equivalent Equipment. After being notified of the claim and given forty eight (48) hours to respond, the payment will be charged to and taken from the credit card on file in your HandyQuip Account. HandyQuip also reserves the right to charge the credit card on file in your HandyQuip Account, or otherwise collect payment from you and pursue any avenues available to HandyQuip in this regard, including using Security Deposits, in situations in which you have been determined, in HandyQuip's sole discretion, to have damaged any Equipment, including, but not limited to, in relation to any payments made by HandyQuip to Vendors. If we are unable to charge the credit card on file or otherwise collect payment from you, you agree to remit payment for any damage to the Equipment to the applicable Vendor or to HandyQuip (if applicable).
You, as a Client, understand and agree that HandyQuip may make a claim under your homeowner's, renter's or other insurance policy related to any damage or loss that you may have caused or been responsible for or to an Equipment. You agree to cooperate with and assist HandyQuip in good faith, and to provide HandyQuip with such information as may be reasonably requested by HandyQuip, in order to make a claim under your homeowner's, renter's or other insurance policy, including, but not limited to, executing documents and taking such further acts as HandyQuip may reasonably request to assist HandyQuip in accomplishing the foregoing.
Keeping Equipment Without the Vendor's Consent
You, as a Client, understand and agree that a confirmed Booking is merely a license granted by the Vendor to the Client to use the Equipment for the limited duration of the confirmed Booking and in accordance with the Client's agreement with the Vendor. You, as a Client, further agree to return the Equipment no later than the return time specified in the confirmed Booking or such other time as mutually agreed upon between the Vendor and the Client. If a Client keeps the Equipment past the agreed upon return time without the Vendor's consent, he or she no longer has a license to use the Equipment and the Vendor is entitled to enforce the return of the Equipment. In addition, you, as a Client, understand and agree that the Vendor can charge the Client, for each 24 hour period that the Client keeps Equipment over the agreed period without the Vendor's consent, an additional daily fee of up to two times the average daily Equipment Fees originally paid by the Client to cover the inconvenience suffered by the Vendor, plus all applicable Service Fees, Delivery Fees, Taxes, and any legal expenses incurred by the Vendor to enforce the return of the Equipment (collectively, the "Additional Sums"). You, as a Client, understand and agree that HandyQuip, in its role as limited collection agent for the Vendor, shall charge the Client's credit card or other payment methods it has on file to collect these Additional Sums. In addition, HandyQuip may recover any costs and expenses it incurs in collecting the Additional Sums by charging the Client's credit card or other payment method on file.
You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for compliance with any and all laws, rules, regulations, and Tax obligations that may apply to your use of the Site, Application, Services and Collective Content. In connection with your use of the Site, Application, Services and Collective Content, you may not, and you understand and agree that you will not:

HandyQuip has the right to investigate and prosecute violations of any of the above to the fullest extent of the law, which may subject you to civil and criminal penalties.
HandyQuip may access, preserve and disclose any of your information if we are required to do so by law, or if we believe in good faith that it is reasonably necessary to (i) respond to claims asserted against HandyQuip or to comply with legal process (for example, subpoenas or warrants), (ii) enforce or administer our agreements with users, such as these Terms, (iii) for fraud prevention, risk assessment, investigation, customer support, product development and de-bugging purposes, or (iv) protect the rights, property or safety of HandyQuip, its users, or members of the public. You acknowledge that HandyQuip has no obligation to monitor your access to or use of the Site, Application, Services or Collective Content or to review or edit any Member Content, but has the right to do so for the purpose of operating and improving the Site, Application and Services (including without limitation for fraud prevention, risk assessment, investigation and customer support purposes), to ensure your compliance with these Terms, to comply with applicable law or the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency or other governmental body, to respond to Content that it determines is otherwise objectionable or as set forth in these Terms. HandyQuip reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Collective Content that HandyQuip, at its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to the Site, Application or Services.
HandyQuip strictly prohibits the Listing of Equipment including, but not limited to, any product that is,
- not related to medical Equipment, which determination is at the sole discretion of HandyQuip;
- an infringement upon the copyright, trademark, or trade secrets of any third party;
- counterfeit; or

Any Listing of prohibited Equipment will be considered as a failure to use the Site, Application or Services in accordance with these Terms, and may subject you to civil and criminal penalties.
Transmission of Information
HandyQuip does not control the security of the Internet or any other networks you may use to access the Site, Application or Services, or to communicate with us. As such, HandyQuip assumes no responsibility for the security, integrity, or loss of data or information that you may choose to communicate with the Site, Application or Services, while the data or information is being transmitted.
Our Services have different products and offerings. Sometimes, additional terms or product requirements may apply to your use of those products or offerings. For example, additional terms apply if you refer new users to HandyQuip Site, Application or Services ("Referral Program"). If additional terms are available for the relevant product or Services you use, those additional terms become part of these Terms.
Specific Terms Regarding Ratings and Reviews
Within a certain timeframe after completing a Booking, Clients can leave a public review (the "Review") and submit a star rating (the "Rating") about a Vendor. Ratings or Reviews reflect the opinions of individual Members and do not reflect the opinion of HandyQuip. Ratings and Reviews are not verified by HandyQuip for accuracy and may be incorrect or misleading.
Ratings and Reviews by Clients must be accurate and may not contain any offensive or defamatory language. Ratings and Reviews are subject to these Terms and must comply with HandyQuip’s Content Policy.
Members are prohibited from manipulating the Ratings and Reviews system in any manner, such as instructing a third party to write a positive or negative Review about another Member.
Ratings and Reviews are part of a Member’s public profile and may also be surfaced elsewhere on the Site, Application, or Services (such as the Listing page) together with other relevant information such as location, number of bookings, number of cancellations, and other information.
Specific Terms Regarding HandyQuip Points and Rewards
HandyVIP Rewards™ is the HandyQuip loyalty program (the "Loyalty Program"). When you rent Equipment using the Site, Application, or Services, the associated rental amounts are converted into Points and accrued in your account based on a currency-to-Point conversion rate determined in our sole discretion, and subject to change at any time and without any notice. When you collect a certain number of Points (the "Minimum Number of Points"), as decided in our sole discretion and provided on the Site, Application and Services, a Reward becomes available in your account and may be redeemed in a future booking under these HandyQuip Points and Rewards Terms & Conditions. All eligible bookings must be made online or with our call center. You can only collect Points or redeem Rewards at Vendors participating in the Loyalty Program. The Loyalty Program is open to anyone over 18 years old who signs up to the Site, Application or Services with a valid email address, and then joins the Loyalty Program. Companies, associations, or other groups determined by us, in our sole discretion, may not join or benefit from the Loyalty Program.
You will collect Points every time your payment method is charged for renting one or more items from Vendors participating in the Loyalty Program. Points cannot be collected from amounts corresponding to Fees or Taxes. You must be signed in to the Site, Application or Services when you complete a booking transaction for the Points to be collected into your account after your payment. If you make a booking with us by phone, you must tell us the email address on your account so we know where to add the Points. Only HandyQuip members can collect Points. Any other user or person associated with the booking do not collect Points, and you cannot collect Points for any booking you made online before you joined the Loyalty Program.
We will post the Points you collected on your account up to 72 hours after your payment for the booking is successfully processed by the Site, Application or Services. If you collect Points but we later believe that you did not complete a rental (an “Invalid Rental”) for any reason, we reserve the right to remove these Invalid Rentals from your account. This could happen if you or a Vendor cancels a rental, or if you did not or declined to take possession of an item at the beginning of the renting period as agreed in your booking. You cannot collect any Point from Invalid Rentals.
You can check your account to see how many Points you have accrued at any time. To do so, you may sign into the Site, Application or Services, or call our call center by telephone. You are responsible for making sure the Point balance in your account is correct. If you believe that you have not collected the correct amount of Points, we will assess any discrepancy and provide corrective actions, as determined by us.
In addition to the information above, you will not collect Points for the following:
- Bookings made before you joined the Loyalty Program;
- Rental amounts paid using a Reward, special promotion, discount coupon, voucher or code;
- Bookings made through group travel services; and
- Bookings that do not cost you anything, i.e. are free.
Rewards are credit only and have no cash value nor can they be refunded or exchanged for cash. Rewards may be redeemed only in Bookings made on the Site, Application and Services. You may only redeem Rewards after they are posted on your account. The scope, variety, and type of services and products that you may obtain by redeeming Rewards can change at any time, in our sole discretion.
The value of a Reward is based on the number of Points and rental amount accrued in your account at the time you choose to redeem the Reward, as long as the Points and Rewards have not expired. The value of a Reward is equal to the average rental rate of the Points you collected to earn the Reward, excluding taxes and fees, and based on a currency-to-Point conversion rate determined in our sole discretion, and subject to change at any time and without any notice.
When the number of Points in your account is greater or equal to the Minimum Number of Points, a Reward becomes available in your account and may be redeemed during checkout in eligible bookings made on the Site, Application or Services or by calling our call center. Eligible bookings include bookings where the total rental amount is greater or equal to the value of the Reward. If you decide not to redeem a Reward, Points and rental amounts in your account will continue to accrue until a Reward is redeemed. If you decide to redeem a Reward, the Reward value will be deducted in whole from the total charge of your booking. You will still be responsible for paying taxes, fees and any other cost corresponding to the rental amount prior application of the Reward. Your Point and Reward balances will be automatically adjusted in your account. Rewards cannot be redeemed in part. You cannot combine a Reward with any other offer, discount coupon, voucher or code, unless the terms for each of these special rates explicitly allow it. In particular, when you place a booking and redeem a Reward, you cannot get an additional special rate for that booking.
When a rental if cancelled by you or by a Vendor, any Reward previously applied to that rental is non-refundable. Your refund will include only the amount previously charged to your original payment method for the cancelled rental. Once a rental is cancelled, any Point or Reward amount applied to that rental, as determined by us and in our sole discretion, are voided and will not be reissued to your account. Rentals paid with Rewards are subject to all applicable booking terms, conditions, and cancellation policies.
Changes and Termination
Points and Rewards expire twelve (12) months from the date that any Points are last accrued or any Reward is redeemed in your HandyQuip Account. If you do not collect Points or redeem a Reward in a 12 month period, your Points and Rewards expire and we may deactivate your account. If this happens, your Points and Rewards are void and will not be reissued. You must sign into your account to check when your Points and Rewards are due to expire. If for some reason you believe that there is a discrepancy regarding your balance of HandyQuip Points and Rewards, please notify HandyQuip as outlined in the Contact page. HandyQuip may require you to submit additional information in order to make a determination regarding your balance. All decisions regarding your balance will be final and at HandyQuip's sole discretion. You are responsible for any Tax consequences, if any, that may result from your redemption or use of HandyVIP™ Rewards.
The Loyalty Program has no end date and will continue until we terminate it, which could happen at any time. If we do terminate the Loyalty Program, all Points and Rewards become void. You will lose your Points and Rewards and you will not be compensated for any loss.
We may change our terms and conditions at any time, with or without notice, including the rules for collecting Points, the rules for redeeming your Rewards, the list of Vendors participating in the Loyalty Program, and the Minimum Number of Points. We may communicate these changes to you by email or on the Site, Application or Services. You are responsible for keeping up to date on any changes that we may make. By continuing to collect Points and redeem Rewards with the Loyalty Program, you accept any changes to these terms and conditions.
General HandyVIP Rewards™ Terms & Conditions
Without limiting any other terms of these Terms and subject to applicable law, all HandyQuip Points and Rewards are forfeited if your HandyQuip Account is terminated or suspended for any reason, in HandyQuip's sole discretion, or if HandyQuip discontinues providing the Site, Application, Services or the Loyalty Program.
We reserve the right to discontinue your membership in the Loyalty Program if you act fraudulently or use the Loyalty Program in a way that does not comply with our terms and conditions, or any federal or state laws, regulations, statutes or ordinances. If we discontinue your membership, you may lose your collected Points and Rewards. We also have the right to take appropriate administrative and/or legal action, including criminal prosecution if necessary.
While you are signed up to the Site, Application or Services, we may communicate any updates to your account or transactions to you by email. We may take back your Points and Rewards at any time or for any reason in our sole discretion. You cannot sell or transfer your Points or Rewards, or combine them with another member’s Points or Rewards. Points and Rewards are not transferable for any reason, which includes if an account is deactivated or closed, if a member dies, if there is a domestic relations issue, or otherwise by operation of law.
The Loyalty Program is void where prohibited by law. Our failure to enforce any provision of these terms and conditions shall not constitute a waiver of that or any other provision. Our decision on all questions or disputes regarding the Loyalty Program is final.
Specific Terms Regarding Referrals
The HandyQuip Referral Program ("The Referral Program") allows Members to earn promotional Points toward future Bookings by referring friends to become new users on the Site, Application, and Services.
Members can earn Points if: (i) a referred friend clicks on their referral link to create a valid HandyQuip account that complies with our Terms of Service; and (ii) the referred friend completes a Qualifying Booking (as defined below).
The referring Member will be credited with the Point specified in the referral invitation or accompanying promotional materials after the completion of the referred friend’s Qualifying Booking.
The maximum Points that can be earned per Member will be 200 Points in respect of Qualifying Bookings.
A Qualifying Booking must must be booked and paid for via the Site, Application, or Services, and the referred friend must place the Booking before the referring Member can receive Points. A Booking will not be considered a Qualifying Booking, and therefore no Points will be earned, if the referring Member is the Vendor or if the Booking is cancelled at any time.
Referrals should only be used for personal and non-commercial purposes. Referral links should not be published or distributed on commercial websites (such as coupon websites, Reddit, or Wikipedia) or on blogs. Members are prohibited from "spamming" anyone with referral invitations. This includes mass emailing, texting or messaging people you do not know or using automated systems or bots through any channel to distribute your referral link. Members are prohibited from paying to advertise their referral links.
Referred friends who have signed up using a valid referral link will also receive Points in the amount(s) indicated in the referral invitation or accompanying promotional materials that can be used on their next Qualifying Booking on HandyQuip.
A referred friend may only use one referral link. If a referred friend receives referral links from multiple Members, only the Member associated with the referral link actually used by the referred friend will receive Travel Credit.
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, HandyQuip grants you a limited non-exclusive, non-transferable license to download and install a copy of the Application on each mobile device or computer that you own or control and run such copy of the Application solely for your own personal use. Furthermore, with respect to any App Store Sourced Application (defined below), you will only use the App Store Sourced Application (i) on an Apple-branded product that runs the iOS (Apple's proprietary operating system) and (ii) as permitted by the "Usage Rules" set forth in the Apple App Store Terms of Service. HandyQuip reserves all rights in the Application not expressly granted to you by these Terms.
HandyQuip Content and Member Content License
Subject to your compliance with the terms and conditions of these Terms, HandyQuip grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license, to (i) access and view any HandyQuip Content solely for your personal and non-commercial purposes and (ii) access and view any Member Content to which you are permitted access, solely for your personal and non-commercial purposes.

Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms and your use of the Services will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida and the United States of America, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. You and HandyQuip agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in St. Johns County, St. Augustine, Florida or a United States District Court, Middle District of Florida located in Jacksonville, Florida for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.
GENERAL. You and HandyQuip agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services or use of the Site or Application (collectively, the "Disputes") will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and HandyQuip are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and HandyQuip otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Dispute Resolution" section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this "Dispute Resolution" section will survive any termination of these Terms.
ARBITRATION RULES AND GOVERNING LAW. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA") in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this "Dispute Resolution" section. (The AAA Rules are available at http://www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
ARBITRATION PROCESS. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration and a separate form for California residents). The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of Florida and will be selected by the parties from the AAA's roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
ARBITRATION LOCATION AND PROCEDURE. Unless you and HandyQuip otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed US $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and HandyQuip submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds US $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
ARBITRATOR'S DECISION. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator's decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator's award damages must be consistent with the terms of the "Limitation of Liability" section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. HandyQuip will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys' fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
ARBITRATION FEES. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed US $75,000, HandyQuip will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
CHANGES. Notwithstanding the provisions of the "Modifications" section above, if HandyQuip changes this "Dispute Resolution" section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the "Last Updated" date above or in the date of HandyQuip's email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and HandyQuip in accordance with the provisions of this "Dispute Resolution" section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
Waiver and Severability
The failure of HandyQuip to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of HandyQuip. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
Third Party Beneficiary
These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than the parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties agree that the payment card networks are third party beneficiaries of these Terms for purposes of enforcing provisions related to payments, but that their consent or agreement is not necessary for any changes or modifications to these Terms.
