The below text is the Service Centers rental agreement that users sign on our iPad at the time of the loan. The renter also gets a copy of the signed agreement sent to their email, listed in the system, at the time of their rental. The purpose of this article is to allow renters another way to refer to the agreement they agreed to if they misplace the email and want to review the terms of their rental.
