RENTAL AGREEMENT (Download the Rental Agreement Form)

A. Rental equipment should be inspected by the renter for damage, missing parts and cleanliness before it is rented. Equipment should be returned in the same condition as it was received. Renters returning equipment that is damaged, has missing parts, or is in unsatisfactory condition, will be charged the amount necessary to restore the equipment to its original condition. Rental equipment is due back by noon of the last day of the rental period, or 24 hours from the time of rental for day rentals. If equipment is returned after the rental period, the renter will be charged an additional daily rental fee. No refunds will be given for equipment returned early (prior to the last day of the agreed upon rental period.) 24 cancellation notice is required in order to receive a refund, and a 25% service charge will be deducted from the refund amount.

B. I agree to the condition set forth herein, and understand that I am using the above rental equipment at my own risk; I have examined the equipment and take full responsibility for its safe and proper use. I further agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless the State of California, Humboldt State University, the University Center, and the Center Activities Program, their directors, officers, employees, and agents (hereinafter, "Releasees") from any liability for property damage, personal injury or death that may occur if myself or any user of the rented equipment whether caused by the negligence of Releasees, or otherwise. I herby assume full responsibility for risk of bodily injury, death or property damage and will hold the Releasees harmless from any and all liability which may arise in connection with this rental.

C. I understand this is a binding contract which shall serve as a release and assumption of risk that shall likewise be binding on my heirs, executors, and administrators and on all members of my family (including minors.)
