3. The Rent For My Event Service
The Service allows the public to access the Site and rent products from Rent For My Event in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. Customers also agree to comply with any terms, conditions, or policies that Rent For My Event may provide to users from time to time on the site. The customer can choose products to rent from our online selection and have them shipped to the customer's address for the agreed upon rental term. We reserve the right to ask for a deposit and/or limit the number of items that a member may rent at any time and/or to require the return of any or all rental items in your possession in the event you fail to make the required payment on time or in the event other factors arise which, in our sole discretion, increase the risk of non-timely payment by you. The current rental rates are outlined in detail on the Site. Also, the current shipping policies governing the delivery and return of products are detailed on the Site. Delivery time for products you have selected to rent may vary based upon (a) inventory availability, (b) your delivery address, (c) when you place an order, and (d) other circumstances impacting delivery. Accordingly, Rent For My Event makes no guarantees as to actual delivery time. We will send you an email letting you know when your product is shipped. The rental period begins the date of the carrier package delivery scan. The risk of loss for items shipped passes to you upon delivery by the carrier. All carrier confirmed deliveries are the sole responsibility of the recipient. If you are unable to locate a confirmed delivery, you are required to contact Rent For My Event immediately to place a tracer investigation with the carrier and to temporarily suspend the rental period. All tracers take 10-20 business days to complete and until the results of the investigation are received, we are not able to proceed with the resolution of a lost item.
If you return an item with excessive or abusive damage exceeding normal wear and tear, as determined by Rent For My Event in its sole discretion, you agree that Rent For My Event may invoice or charge your payment method (we currently accept Visa, MasterCard, Amex, and Discover) and collect the full retail price for such an item. You are also responsible in the event of a theft or loss of an item and therefore you will be responsible for the full retail price immediately upon notification of the loss of the item. RENTAL fees will continue to accrue until the payment is received in full. Rent For My Event reserves the right to close your account at any time if we notice multiple cases of excessive damage or abuse to the items you have rented.
Rent For My Event reserves the right to cancel any order at any time prior to delivery to the customer. In the event an order is canceled, the funds authorized or charged are released by Rent For My Event and are then subject to the rules of your financial institution, in determining the time that you will have the funds back.

5. Gift Cards
We do not offer Gift Cards.
When you rent you will be required to provide Rent For My Event with accurate, complete and current information for a valid payment method that you are authorized to use. By purchasing the Service, you authorize Rent For My Event or its agent to bill your payment method for the applicable per-item rental fees, shipping charges, any and all applicable taxes, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Service. Other fees will be charged to your payment method as you incur them.
If Rent For My Event does not receive payment from your payment method provider or if your payment method expires or is rejected, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand. Following any such non-payment, we may require you to provide a second valid payment method before continuing to use the Services and you authorize Rent For My Event to charge outstanding fees and other amounts due us against any payment method you have on file with us. Rent For My Event reserves the right to take all steps necessary to collect amounts due from you, including but not limited to legal action and/or using third party collection agencies. Rent For My Event reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. By providing us with your landline or cell phone number(s), you give your consent for us, our agents, and to our collection agents, to contact you at these numbers, or, at any number that is later acquired for you, and, to leave live, or pre-recorded messages regarding any accounts or services. For greater efficiency, calls may be delivered by an autodialer.
You are solely responsible for any and all fees charged to your payment method by the issuer, bank, or financial institution including, but not limited to, overdraft, insufficient funds, and over the credit limit fees. You agree to notify us about any billing problems or discrepancies within 60 days after they first appear on your Account statement.

We may modify the price, content, or nature of the Service at any time. We may provide notice of any such changes by email, notice to you upon log-in, or by publishing them on the Site.
We reserve the right to determine whether your payment method(s) is/are pre-authorized to accept a minimum charge equal to each item and/or rental product. In the event we feel the amount of available credit is not sufficient to cover these amounts, we may request the immediate return of all outstanding items and/or that you provide a second valid payment method before continuing to use the Service.
Typically an initial authorization for $1.00 is processed; this is to verify the validity of the payment method. There will then be a second authorization for the actual amount of the rental. Once the rental reservation has been submitted, only the actual amount of the order and any applicable taxes/fees will be charged. In the event an order is canceled, the funds authorized are released by Rent For My Event and are then subject to the rules of your financial institution, in determining the time that you will have access to the funds.

10. Actual Damages, Liquidated Damages, Attorneys' Fees and Costs
Actual Damages- In the case of a failure to pay any debts or to return any item(s) when due to Rent For My Event (hereinafter, a "default"), you will be liable to Rent For My Event for its ACTUAL DAMAGES, including but not limited to the then-current rental payment for each item until said item is received by Rent For My Event in an undamaged condition. If said item has not been returned in an undamaged condition before the expiration of 60 days after the date of default, then Rent For My Event at its option may alternatively charge you the MSRP as maintained by Rent For My Event for that item, plus 60 days rent from the date of default, or seek to recover the wrongfully-retained item plus all rent owed to the date of recovery of the undamaged item. If suit is filed, Rent For My Event may assert these measures of damage simultaneously. If an item is not recovered, or if it is recovered in a damaged condition, then Rent For My Event will charge you the MSRP, handling, and shipping fees as maintained by Rent For My Event for said item, plus 60 days rent from the date of default.
Liquidated Damages- Rent For My Event utilizes internal and external resources in its efforts to reduce and recover losses from customer non-payments, from the theft and/or wrongful retention of its products, and from other improper, negligent or fraudulent acts. Because the amount of these internal losses are difficult to calculate, you agree that Rent For My Event is also entitled to collect LIQUIDATED DAMAGES-IN ADDITION TO ITS ACTUAL DAMAGES-if Rent For My Event commences collection or legal action to recover any amounts due from you, and/or to recover property wrongfully retained by you. In all cases, the LIQUIDATED DAMAGES will consist of a $350 per-item charge for each item that remains unpaid and/or unreturned at the time that Rent For My Event commences collection or legal action, which sum is intended to compensate for the expenditure of Rent For My Event’s internal resources as a result of your breach of contract, fraud or other wrongful or negligent acts. In cases where Rent For My Event has been unsuccessful in recovering its merchandise in an undamaged condition prior to the entry of a judgment against you, then Rent For My Event's LIQUIDATED DAMAGES will also include an additional 60-day rental charge to cover the period from day 61 through day 120 following your default. This second, 60-day rental period is intended to provide a reasonable estimate of Rent For My Event's additional lost rental income caused by your wrongful retention of Rent For My Event’s property. It will be charged to you at the same rate as was actually charged for the first 60-day default rental period. You understand and agree that the LIQUIDATED DAMAGES of (i) $350 per item plus (ii) the second, 60-day rental period for items that are not recovered in an undamaged condition, are not a penalty, but instead are reasonable and necessary estimates of the sums needed to compensate Rent For My Event for the loss and expense of its internal and external resources and for the loss of its future rental income.
Attorneys' Fees, Costs and Interest- If Rent For My Event commences litigation to recover its property from you, to recover ACTUAL DAMAGES, and/or to recover LIQUIDATED DAMAGES; you agree that the substantially prevailing party will be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses of litigation. You further agree that Rent For My Event will be entitled to recover prejudgment interest on its ACTUAL DAMAGES and it's LIQUIDATED DAMAGES from the date of default to the date of judgment entry at the rate of 12% per annum.
Reservation of Rights- Rent For My Event expressly reserves its right to seek additional elements of actual damages other than those expressly identified above.
