SCOPE OF HalfPrice SERVICES
In no event will HalfPrice be responsible for and, to the maximum extent permitted by law, HalfPrice disclaims and excludes all liability arising from the conduct of borrowers and lenders, use of listed items and lent items by borrowers and lenders, and transactions between borrowers and lenders.
The Services provide Users with an online peer-to-peer marketplace that enables Lenders and Borrowers to Lend and Borrow Listed Items, and for Lenders and Borrowers to communicate and transact directly to facilitate such lending and borrowing. The Services merely facilitate Lending and Borrowing, and HalfPrice does not own, create, lend, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, insure, or supply any Listings or Listed Items. For certainty, HalfPrice is not a rental broker, agent or insurer. When Lenders and Borrowers arrange for a Listed Item to be Borrowed/Lent, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. HalfPrice is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Registered Users, nor is HalfPrice an insurer. HalfPrice is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Registered User.

Such checks may be performed by HalfPrice and/or third party services and may include screening Registered Users based on information provided by Registered Users and/or requested by HalfPrice, screening against third party databases or other sources, requesting reports from service providers, and reviewing your government identification, date of birth, and other similar information. Such verification may include (i) for Users in Canada, to the extent permitted by applicable laws and if HalfPrice has sufficient information to identify a User, obtaining reports from public records of criminal convictions or sex offender registrations of the User; and (ii) for Users outside Canada, to the extent permitted by applicable laws and if we have sufficient information to identify a User, obtaining the local version of background or registered sex offender checks in HalfPrice’s sole discretion.

The Services allow Borrowers and Lenders to Lend/Borrow Listed items and to coordinate payments, delivery and return of Listed Items between such Borrowers and Lenders. HalfPrice makes no guarantee as to whether and when any request to Borrow a Listed Item will or may be accepted or rejected by any Lender or whether a Borrow will request to Borrow a Listed Item. HalfPrice has no responsibility, whatsoever, for the performance or fulfillment of any Borrowing or Lending, or payment, delivery or return for any Borrowing or Lending.
HalfPrice does not act as an insurer or contracting agent.
No Listing, Lending or Borrowing may breach any agreement(s) the Borrower or Lender has entered into with any third parties.
Borrower is responsible for Lent Items damaged beyond reasonable wear and tear, or that are lost or stolen. Lender may contact HalfPrice at support@HalfPrice.Rent and HalfPrice will, after receipt of such contact, attempt to contact Borrower or investigate the situation in an attempt retrieve the stolen or lost item. If Borrower denies losing or stealing the item, or HalfPrice otherwise determines (in its sole discretion) that Borrower caused such damage or that the item is not retrievable, then Borrower will be responsible for all costs related to such damages, which will be determined by HalfPrice, in its sole discretion, based on various factors including, but not limited to, market value, internal appraisal provisions, depreciation, age, make, model and condition. HalfPrice also reserves the right to charge the credit card on file in Borrower’s Registered User Account, or otherwise collect payment from Borrower and pursue any avenues available to HalfPrice. If HalfPrice is unable to charge the credit card on file or otherwise collect payment from Borrower, then Borrower agrees to immediately remit payment for all such amounts to HalfPrice. HalfPrice shall redistribute such amounts to Lender to the extent that HalfPrice actually receives such amounts from Borrower. HalfPrice shall in no event be responsible for collecting such amounts.
Please see our FAQ, under the heading “Protection”. HalfPrice may in whole or in part without notice if we suspect abuse or interference with the proper working of the policy.
The remedies in this section 11 represent lenders’ sole and exclusive remedy in the event a lent item is damaged or stolen
Both Borrowers and Lenders agree to cooperate with HalfPrice in good faith, and to provide HalfPrice information and take actions as may be reasonably requested by HalfPrice, in connection with any complaints or claims made by Borrowers relating to Lent Items or with respect to any investigation undertaken by HalfPrice or a representative of HalfPrice regarding use or misuse of the Services. Borrowers agree, upon HalfPrice’s reasonable request, and to the extent Borrower is reasonably able to do so, to participate in mediation or similar resolution process with a Lender, at no cost to Borrower, which process may be conducted by HalfPrice or a third party selected by HalfPrice.
DISPUTES BETWEEN USERS
You agree that any legal remedy or liability that You seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Users, use of Listed Items and Lent Items, or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular User(s) or other third parties who caused You harm and You agree not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from HalfPrice with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, HalfPrice encourages You to communicate directly with other Users via the Services regarding any Rentals, Sales or Listings, as applicable, made by You. This limitation shall not apply to any claim by a Lender against HalfPrice regarding the remittance of payments received from a User by HalfPrice on behalf of a Lender, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled “Limitation of Liability”.
BORROWING RATE; PENALTY COSTS
Borrowers must pay Lender for each Lent Item at the Borrowing Rate for the Borrowing Period, in each case agreed to by Borrower and Lender for such Lent Item (“Lent Item Fees”), plus taxes.
Borrower agrees that it is also responsible for Service Fees to HalfPrice, as specified in Section 14 below.
For certainty, Borrowers are responsible for Lent Item Fees, calculated at the Borrowing Rate, for at least the entirety of the Borrowing Period.
For example, if a Borrower returns a Lent Item to Lender prior to the end of the Borrowing Period, then Lent Item Fees for such item will be equal to Borrowing Rate multiplied by the number of 24 hour increments in the Borrowing Period, plus taxes if applicable.
Subject to availability, a Borrower may extend the Borrowing Period of a Lent Item using the App. Borrowers will be charged additional Lent Item Fees, plus taxes, for the additional time if any request to extend the Borrowing Period is accepted by the Lender. Any Lender accepted extensions will be considered part of the Borrowing Period.
If a Lent Item is returned late to Lender (i.e. past the Borrowing Period agreed to by Lender and Borrower), then Borrower must pay additional Borrowing Fees, calculated at the Borrowing Rate, plus taxes, until the item is returned (“Late Lent Item Fees”).
For example, if a Borrower returns a Lent Item to Lender after the end of the Borrowing Period, then Late Lent Item Fees for such item will be equal to Borrowing Rate multiplied by the number of additional 24 hour increments following the Borrowing Period prior to the item being returned, plus taxes if applicable.
If a Lender is unable to confirm or decides to reject a booking request within the Booking Request Period, any amounts collected by HalfPrice for the requested booking will be refunded to the applicable Borrower.
Lender agrees that HalfPrice may, in accordance with the cancellation policy selected by the der and reflected in the relevant Listing, (i) permit the Borrower to cancel the booking and (ii) refund to the Borrower that portion of the Borrowing fees specified in the applicable cancellation policy.
FEES TO HalfPrice
In consideration of the use of the Services, including facilitating transactions between Lenders and Borrowers, HalfPrice charges (i) to Lenders, Service Fee a Protection fee and a service facilitation fee and, and (ii) to Borrowers, a Protection fee (the Protection fees for Lenders and for Borrowers are referred to in these TOU as the “Protection Fee”)and a service facilitation fee (the service facilitation fees for Lenders and for Borrowers are referred to in these TOU as the “Service Fee”).
Any applicable Service Fees and Protection Fees (including any applicable taxes) will be displayed to a Lender and/or Borrower prior to publishing or booking a Listing. The current Service Fees and Protection Fees are listed on the App and Website. HalfPrice reserves the right to change the Service Fees and/or Protection Fees at any time, and HalfPrice will provide Registered Users reasonable notice of any fee changes before they become effective.
Service Fees and Protection Fees are non-refundable.
Payments from Borrowers for Lent Item Fees, Protection Fees and Service Fees, as well as applicable taxes, are due immediately upon Lender accepting Borrower’s Borrowing request, whether for the Borrowing period or for any extension of the Borrowing Period. Borrower hereby authorizes HalfPrice to charge Borrower, via Stripe, for such amounts due immediately upon such acceptance. Late Lent Item Fees, as well as applicable taxes, are due immediately. Borrower hereby authorizes HalfPrice to charge Borrower, via Stripe, for late fees due. If a payment does not go through, for any reason, You agree to pay the all applicable amounts due within seven (7) days of HalfPrice sending the invoice or receipt for the same. Borrowers may be charged a cancellation fee or minimum payment if You book or confirm a Lent Item but cancel it before the item is delivered.
With respect to Lenders, HalfPrice deducts the Service Fees and Protection Fees from the Borrowing fees before remitting the balance to the Lender.
All payments are processed by Stripe, HalfPrice’s third party payment processor. Such processing is governed solely by Stripe’s services agreement, available at https://stripe.com/en-ca/legal, and not these TOU. HalfPrice has no liability arising from your use of Stripe, or for any arrears by Stripe. You acknowledge and agree that Stripe may apply a fee for processing the payment, which may change without notice from time to time, subject to the terms and conditions set out by the Stripe.
If You owe or agree to pay any amount to HalfPrice, then HalfPrice may (but is not obliged to) withhold the amount owing to HalfPrice from any payout amounts due to you as a Lender, and use the withheld amount to set off the amount owed by You to HalfPrice.
If Your account is delinquent or You otherwise have chargebacks on Your account, You may be charged fees that are incidental to HalfPrice’s collection of these delinquent amounts and chargebacks. Such fees or charges may include collection fees, convenience fees, or other third party charges.
Lender agrees that in connection with its use of our Service, it may be required to comply with income tax and withholding requirements on any income it receives and that if such an obligation arises it will be solely responsible for the timely payment of such tax and any interest or penalties. The Borrowing fees paid to Lenders are inclusive of any and all applicable federal, provincial, state, local, or other fees or taxes owed by such Lenders. In no cases will any additional compensation be paid to Lenders for taxes. If HalfPrice, in its sole discretion, determines it is required to withhold any taxes in connection with the provision of the Services, HalfPrice may but is under no obligation to do so. If it is later determined that HalfPrice should have withheld and/or paid tax but did not withhold or pay such tax, then You shall repay to us the applicable tax as requested by HalfPrice and hold HalfPrice harmless from any penalties or interest thereon. You further agree to indemnify and hold HalfPrice and its directors, officers, agents, contractors, partners and employees, harmless from and against any loss, liability, claim, demand, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees, arising out of or in connection with any claims by the Canada Revenue Agency or any taxes related to Your use of the Service.
