If a Buyer does not agree with the condition category that the Seller selected and/or the condition description that the Seller added, after the Buyer receives their purchased Listing, the Buyer can request to initiate a return to the Seller and a refund from the Seller within the refund period, as determined and provided by ShareGrid or the Seller.

Owners are responsible of setting a minimum coverage limit or accurate market value for their Listing (hereinafter, “Replacement Value”). The Listing Replacement Value is displayed publicly on the Listing so that a Renter is aware of the Replacement Value prior to placing a rental request. Accordingly, you, as an Owner, agree that that a Renter, an insurance company, or ShareGrid owes the Owner an amount for the repair or replacement of the Listing in excess of the the Replacement Value that the Owner has set for Listing at the time the Renter submits a rental request for the Listing. Owners may adjust a Listing Replacement Value at any time, except for when a Listing has been requested by a Renter or in an active rental. ShareGrid will keep track of any adjustments in the Listing Replacement Value.

ShareGrid reserves the right to change the price of an Owner’s Listing. ShareGrid does so in order to maintain reasonable rental prices relative to other listing prices, with the intention to increase the likelihood that an Owner will have their Listing rented by a Renter. If an Owner does not agree with a price change, they have the option of closing their listing at any time, refusing to accept a rental request, or contacting ShareGrid to discuss the issue.

  1. Renters, Rental Period, and Renter Liability

The period of time between when the Owner (or the Owner’s Authorized Person) releases custody and control of the Listing to the Renter (or the Renter’s Authorized Person) and when the Renter (or the Renter’s Authorized Person) returns custody and control of the Listing to the Owner (or the Owner’s Authorized Person) is known as the “Rental Period.” A Renter must request an initial Rental Period, with a set Listing pick-up day and time and a set Listing return day and time, and the Owner may accept the Rental Period that the Renter requests. A Renter must request any modifications to an initial Rental Period, with a set Listing pick-up day and time and a set Listing return day and time, and the Owner may accept to any modifications to Rental Period that the Renter requests. Any Renter modifications to the Rental Period that are not accepted by the Owner are not authorized and may result in ShareGrid or the Owner making a police report against the Renter and pursuing legal action against the Renter.

If the Renter damages , loses, steals, converts, transfers custody and control to a third-party of, and/or fails to return the Owner’s Listing, within the Rental Period, the Renter agrees that they are liable for and agree to immediately pay for the repair or replacement of the Owner’s Listing, up to the specified limit purchased and/or the Replacement Value of the Listing (as provided on the Listing when a Renter requests a Listing) and/or the amount not covered by a Renter's coverage option or insurance policy, and/or the entire deductible amount (if applicable) for the coverage option or insurance policy that covers the Listing. Renters are not liable for pre-existing damage or issues with an Owner’s Listing, if there is proof of pre-existing damage or issues or if the pre-existing damage or issues are not caused by the Renter’s rental and use of the Listing. We always recommend that both Owners and Renters use rental checksheets and thoroughly inspect Listings that they rent.

ShareGrid is not liable for a User’s (or the User’s Authorized Person) deceptive or fraudulent acts, voluntary parting of Listings, the theft of Listings, and/or any other loss caused by User’s (or the User’s Authorized Person) deceptive or fraudulent acts and a User’s (or the User’s Authorized Person) use of ShareGrid.com, but ShareGrid will completely cooperate with the investigation and produce information about the incident and parties involved, working with law enforcement and any insurance companies involved.

Damage Waiver (Damage Only) Agreement: 

Renters have the option to purchase Damage Waiver (also known as “Damage Only”), for unintentional damage to a rented Listing, that the Renter requested and rented, during the Rental Period. 

The Damage Waiver option is not an insurance policy. The Damage Waiver option is a damage waiver that potentially waives the Renter’s liability for unintentional or accidental damage to the rented Listing, subject to the exclusions listed below (hereinafter, “Damage Waiver (Damage Only) Exclusions”). The Damage Waiver option is provided to Renter to waive their potentially liability of the cost to repair or replace the rented Listing, up to the Replacement Value of the Listing at the time of rental. There is a $6,000.00 USD maximum Replacement Value amount payable by ShareGrid to repair or replace the Listing that is covered by the Damage Waiver option. 

By purchasing the Damage Waiver option, you, the Renter of a Listing from an Owner on ShareGrid, assume all responsibility and will be liable for all damage to, theft of, or loss of the Listing during the Rental Period. In order to reduce your exposure for such liability, ShareGrid offers a Damage Waiver option that will reduce (but not eliminate) your responsibility for accidental damage to the rented Listing up to the specified limit purchased and/or the Listing Replacement Value, as determined by ShareGrid. In return for paying the cost of the Damage Waiver option, so long as you fully comply with ShareGrid's Terms and Community Rules, ShareGrid will be financially responsible for the repair or replacement of the rented Listing, unless one or more of the Damage Waiver (Damage Only) Exclusions applies as determined by ShareGrid, up to the limit purchased and/or the Listing Replacement Value, for the duration of the Rental Period, minus any applicable deductible(s) (which can range, as the deductible is 12% the Listing Replacement Value (as provided on the Listing when a Renter requests a rental).

Any deductible(s) are immediately due to ShareGrid or the Owner of the Listing by the Renter of the Listing upon payment of the claim by ShareGrid to the Owner. If the Renter, who is the purchaser of the Damage Waiver option, does not remit payment of the deductible amount which is due to ShareGrid or the Listing Owner, ShareGrid reserves the right and the Renter agrees and authorizes ShareGrid to charge the Renter's payment method on the Renter's ShareGrid Account or attempt to collect the debt using alternative methods. 

The Damage Waiver option will apply to the rental transaction that is was purchased for, to the Renter listed on the Rental Invoice, during the listed Rental Period.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The damage limitations set forth below are subject to your compliance with all of your obligations under the Terms and Community Rules. Even if the Damage Waiver option is purchased, you agree that you will be responsible for the full amount of damages to or the loss of the rented Listing if you fail to comply with all of your obligations under the Terms of Service and Community Rules

DAMAGE WAIVER (DAMAGE ONLY) EXCLUSIONS: A violation of the Agreement (these Terms) shall exist and the Damage Waiver option is void and shall not apply to the following situations:

Valuation of the Listing, the cost of replacement of the Listing (if applicable), the cost of repair of the Listing (if applicable), and the repair provider who may repair the Listing (if applicable), is within the sole discretion of ShareGrid. 

If the Renter damages the Listing belonging to the Owner unintentionally or accidentally, which is included in the rental, within the Rental Period, the Renter agrees to pay for the repair or replacement of the Owner’s Listing, up to the amount not covered by the Damage Waiver option (a claimed amount over $6000.00), and/or the entire deductible amount (if applicable). 

If the Renter damages, loses, steals, converts, transfers custody and control to a third-party of, or takes any other action in regards to the the Listing which is not covered under the Damage Waiver option, or if one or more of Damage Waiver (Damage Only) Exclusions (as defined above) apply as determined by ShareGrid, to the Listing belonging to the Owner, which is included in the rental, within the Rental Period, the Renter agrees to immediately pay the Listing Owner or ShareGrid (to reimburse the Owner) for the repair or replacement of the Owner’s Listing.

In the event of replacement or loss peripheral item(s) included in the rental, Renter agrees to pay ShareGrid the value of the peripheral item(s) to be repaired or replaced, even if Renter purchases a Damage Waiver option, in order for ShareGrid to repair or replace the Owner’s peripheral item(s).

The determination of whether or not something is a peripheral item and not covered by the Damage Waiver option, is at the sole discretion of ShareGrid.

Renters who purchase the Damage Waiver option must contact ShareGrid and/or submit a incident form as soon as the rented Listing is damaged or lost. ShareGrid will conduct an investigation, and at its sole discretion, conclude whether the Damage Waiver applies. Members agree to authorize ShareGrid to conduct and investigation and solely determine if the Damage Waiver option applies. There are no guarantees that a purchaser of a Damage Waiver option will have any costs of repair or replacement of the Owner's Listing waived, and there are no guarantees that an Owner will be reimbursed for any costs of repair or replacement, or any other costs. If ShareGrid determines that the Damage Waiver option does not apply, we will refund the Damage Waiver fee to the Renter.

As a Owner, you agree to initiate a claim under their own or an associated third-party insurance policy (homeowners policy, tenant/renters policy, equipment policy, etc.) for any damage to or theft of the rented Listing before ShareGrid processes a claim, if requested to by ShareGrid. If the Renter's, Owner's, or an associated third-party's insurance policy reimburses the Owner for a claim related to the claim that is reported to ShareGrid based on the purchase of a Damage Waiver Pro option (involves the same rented Listing), ShareGrid will subtract the reimbursement amount that is due or remitted to the Owner from any financial responsibility that ShareGrid may owe to the Owner on behalf of the Renter.

YOU AFFIRM THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS LISTING RELEASE AND WAIVER AND FULLY UNDERSTAND THE ASSUMPTION OF RISK, RELEASE, WAIVER, AND CONSENT CONTAINED IN IT. YOU FURTHER UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN UP RIGHTS BY AGREEING TO THE TERMS, AND HAVE DONE SO FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY AND WITHOUT INDUCEMENT.

  1. Disputes (Agreement to Arbitrate)

THE FOLLOWING SECTION AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING HOW CLAIMS YOU AND SHAREGRID HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER, AND HOW CLAIMS YOU AND OTHER USERS HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER, ARE RESOLVED. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY.

Subject to applicable law, you and ShareGrid agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise between us, or may arise between us, relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any previous versions of the Agreement, your use of and access to the Service, or any breach, termination, or enforcement of this Agreement will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this “Disputes (Agreement to Arbitrate)” section of the Agreement. This will preclude you from bringing any class, collective, or representative action against ShareGrid and also preclude you from participating in or recovering relief under any current or future class, collective, consolidated, or representative action brought against ShareGrid by someone else.

Contact ShareGrid: If a dispute arises between you and ShareGrid, we want to do our best to help resolve the dispute. Disputes between you and us may be reported to legal{at}sharegrid.com. 

Applicable Law: You agree that the laws of the State of Washington, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and ShareGrid, except as otherwise stated in this Agreement.

Agreement to Arbitrate: You and ShareGrid each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and ShareGrid (including its respective subsidiaries, employees, officers, directors, and agents), or between your and another User, relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of the Agreement, your use of, or access to the Service, or any services sold, offered, or purchased through the Platform or any breach, enforcement, or termination of this Agreement shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, as an alternative to resolving a dispute in court, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the threatened or actual infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. The Federal Arbitration Act , 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this “Disputes (Agreement to Arbitrate)” section.

Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief: YOU AND SHAREGRID AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS USER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND SHAREGRID AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER SHAREGRID USERS.

Arbitration Procedures: Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. S arbitrator may award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator also must follow the terms of this Terms as a court would.

You and ShareGrid agree that any dispute, claim or controversy under $25,000 in value arising out of or relating to this Agreement, whether between you and ShareGrid or between you and other Users, or the existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, shall be settled by binding arbitration administered or conducted by FairClaims (www.FairClaims.com) and not in a court of law, in accordance with its Arbitration Rules & Procedures effective at the time a claim is made. You further agree that judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Any FairClaims arbitration hearing shall be held via videoconference. You consent to electronic service of process, with service to be made to the email address we have on record for your account.

You and ShareGrid agree that any dispute, claim or controversy $25,000 and over in value arising out of or relating to this Agreement, whether between you and ShareGrid or between you and other Users, or the existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, shall be settled by binding arbitration administered or conducted by by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") (https://www.adr.org) under its rules and procedures, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable), as modified by this this “Disputes (Agreement to Arbitrate)” section of the Agreement. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA's services at http://www.adr.org. The arbitration shall be held in King County, Washington or at another mutually agreed location.

You or ShareGrid may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and ShareGrid subject to the arbitrator's discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or ShareGrid, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same User to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

Costs of FairClaims Arbitration: The parties agree to split all FairClaims fees evenly, or ShareGrid may elect, but is not obligated to, to cover all FairClaims fees. You agree that, in the event of confirmation and enforcement, the delinquent party to the arbitration will be responsible for any attorney, court or other fees associated with such action.

Costs of AAA Arbitration: Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement to Arbitrate. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse ShareGrid for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by ShareGrid on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA's rules. 

Non-Disclosure: You agree that any and all communications and evidence related to any dispute ultimately resolved by arbitration or mediation with FairClaims or AAA arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be held and will remain confidential, and that you will not take any action that will harm the reputation of any of the other parties to the arbitration or mediation or ShareGrid, or which would reasonably be expected to lead to unwanted or unfavorable publicity to and of the parties, ShareGrid or other entities involved in or incidental to the arbitration or mediation. You understand that those parties and entities include but are not limited to the claimant, respondent, witnesses, and ShareGrid.

Severability: With the exception of any of the provisions in any subsection of this Agreement to Arbitrate ("Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief"), if a court decides that any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall still apply. If a court decides that any of the provisions in subsection of this Agreement to Arbitrate ("Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief") is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall be null and void. The remainder of the Terms, including all other provisions of this “Disputes (Agreement to Arbitrate)” section, will continue to apply.

Opting out of this Agreement to Arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with us.

Future Changes to the Agreement to Arbitrate: Notwithstanding any provision in the Terms to the contrary, you and we agree that if we make any change to this Agreement to Arbitrate (other than a change to any notice address or services link provided herein) in the future, that change shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against ShareGrid prior to the effective date of the change. Moreover, if we seek to terminate the Agreement to Arbitrate as included in the Terms, any such termination shall not be effective until thirty (30) days after the version of the Terms not containing the Agreement to Arbitrate is posted to http://www.sharegrid.com, and shall not be effective as to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against ShareGrid prior to the effective date of termination.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. 

IF YOU RESIDE IN CALIFORNIA, YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, OR ANY SIMILAR LAW, WHICH PROVIDES: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.” YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT CLAIMS OR FACTS IN ADDITION TO OR DIFFERENT FROM THOSE WHICH ARE NOW KNOWN OR BELIEVED BY YOU TO EXIST MAY HEREAFTER BE DISCOVERED.

YOU AFFIRM THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THIS RELEASE OF SHAREGRID AND LIMITATION ON LIABILITY SECTION AND FULLY UNDERSTAND THE ASSUMPTION OF RISK, RELEASE, WAIVER, AND LIMITATION ON SHAREGRID’S LIABILITY, AND CONSENT CONTAINED IN IT. YOU FURTHER UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN UP RIGHTS BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, AND HAVE DONE SO FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY AND WITHOUT INDUCEMENT.

  1. Assumption of Rights
