To purchase any goods and/or services on our Site, you must be at least eighteen (18) years of age or the applicable state age of majority. Prior to the purchase of any goods or services on our Site, you must provide us with a valid credit card number and associated payment information including all of the following: (i) your name as it appears on the card, (ii) your credit card number, (iii) the credit card type, (iv) the date of expiration and (v) any activation numbers or codes needed to charge your card.

6. Methods of Payment, Credit Card Terms and Taxes.

All payments must be made by VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, PayPal, certified check or cashier's check. We currently do not accept cash, personal or business checks or any other payment form, although in the future we may change this policy. Your card issuer agreement governs your use of your designated card, and you must refer to that agreement and not this Terms of Use to determine your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. YOU, AND NOT UNITED RENTALS, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY UNAUTHORIZED AMOUNTS BILLED TO YOUR CREDIT CARD BY A THIRD PARTY. You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with your purchases (including any applicable taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. Unless you notify United Rentals of any discrepancies within sixty (60) days after they first appear on your credit card statement, you agree that they will be deemed accepted by you for all purposes. If United Rentals does not receive payment from your credit card issuer or its agent, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by United Rentals or its agents. You are responsible for paying any governmental taxes imposed on your purchases, including, but not limited to, sales, use or value-added taxes. United Rentals shall automatically charge and withhold the applicable tax for orders to be delivered to addresses within and any states or localities that it deems is required.

7. Order Acceptance Policy.

Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. United Rentals reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. United Rentals further reserves the right any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any item. Your order will be deemed accepted by United Rentals upon our delivery of products or services that you have ordered. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order.

8. No Responsibility to Sell Mispriced Products or Services.

United Rentals shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for products and/or services listed at an incorrect price, rebate or refund, or containing any other incorrect information or typographical errors. United Rentals shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, United Rentals shall immediately issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge.

9. Modifications to Prices or Billing Terms.

UNITED RENTALS RESERVES THE RIGHT, AT ANY TIME, TO CHANGE ITS PRICES AND BILLING METHODS FOR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES SOLD, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY UPON POSTING ON THE SITE OR BY E-MAIL DELIVERY TO YOU.

11. Indemnification.

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless United Rentals and its subsidiaries, affiliates, service providers, other End Users, distributors, licensors, officers, directors and employees from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party arising out of or related to your violation of this Terms of Use, or your violation of any law, regulation or third-party right.

13. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.

THE ENTIRE RISK ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF THE SITE, THE USE OF ANY PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES OFFERED ON OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SITE, AND/OR THE USE OF ANY CONTENT REMAINS WITH YOU. IN NO EVENT SHALL UNITED RENTALS OR ITS LICENSORS OR ANY OF THEIR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS OR AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR OTHER DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) ARISING OUT OF THIS TERMS OF USE OR THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES OR CONTENT, WITH THE DELAY OR INABILITY TO USE THE UNITED RENTALS SITE OR RELATED SERVICES, THE PROVISION OF OR FAILURE TO PROVIDE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, OR FOR ANY INFORMATION, SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS, SERVICES AND CONTENT OBTAINED THROUGH THE SITE, OR OTHERWISE ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF THE UNITED RENTALS SITE WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE EVEN IF UNITED RENTALS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

ORDER INFORMATION SUCH AS BILLING OR SHIPPING ADDRESS THAT IS INACCURATE OR INCOMPLETE MAY RESULT IN DELAYS THAT SHALL NOT BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF UNITED RENTALS. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITED REMEDIES SET FORTH HEREIN REPRESENT AN INSEPARABLE ALLOCATION OF RISK (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IN THE EVENT OF A TOTAL AND FUNDAMENTAL BREACH OF THIS TERMS OF USE) THAT IS AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES.

14. Policy to Terminate Privileges for Copyright Infringement.

Pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512 as amended by Title II of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the "Act"), United Rentals will terminate the account of any customer, or vendor who uses his or her privileges to unlawfully transmit copyrighted material without a license, valid defense or fair use privilege to do so. After proper notification by the copyright holder, or its agent, to United Rentals and later confirmation through court order or an admission by the customer that an account has been an instrument of unlawful infringement, United Rentals will terminate the infringing customer's account. United Rentals may also in its sole discretion decide to terminate a customer's account privileges prior to that time if it has good belief that infringement has in fact occurred. In addition, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(c), United Rentals has implemented procedures for receiving written notification of claimed infringements and for processing such claims in accordance with the Act. United Rentals respects the intellectual property of others and we ask other to do the same. If you believe that your copyright has been infringed through the Site, please contact our Legal Department, via facsimile at (203) 622-6080, or mail at:

  1. An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive that is allegedly infringed;
  2. A description of the allegedly infringing work or material;
  3. A description of where the allegedly infringing material is located on the Site;
  4. Information reasonably sufficient to allow us to contact you, such as your address, telephone number and e-mail address;
  5. A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use of the material is not authorized by the copyright or other proprietary right owner, its agent, or the law; and
  6. A statement by you that the above information and notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of the owner whose exclusive right is allegedly infringed.

15. General.

No delay or failure to take action under this Terms of Use shall constitute any waiver by United Rentals of any provision of this Terms of Use. If any provision of this Terms of Use is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, it is, to that extent, deemed enforceable to the fullest extent possible (and severable in the event such provision is completely unenforceable) and the remaining provisions of this Terms of Use will continue in full force and effect. This Terms of Use will bind and inure to the benefit of United Rentals' permitted successors and assigns. Any claim under these Terms of Use must be brought within one (1) year after the cause of action arises.
