This Rental Agreement (the "Rental Agreement") constitute a binding agreement between you and DVx Loop, Co. ("Loop," "we," or "us") with respect to your rental from Loop of certain Rental Products (as defined below) via Loop’s online product rental service, operated through Loop’s website with a homepage at https://loop.baby/, its subdomains, and such mobile applications and websites as Loop may designate from time to time (the “Site”), which service allows members to rent high-quality baby products on a flexible, month-to-month basis (the “Service”). Our rental to you of the Rental Products, and your rights to access and use the same, is offered subject to your acceptance of all terms and conditions set forth herein.
THIS RENTAL AGREEMENT REQUIRES THE USE OF BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS OF SECTION 13 (“DISPUTE RESOLUTION”) BELOW.
LOOP MAY REFUSE TO RENT OR OTHERWISE TERMINATE YOUR RENTAL OF ANY RENTAL PRODUCTS FOR YOUR NONCOMPLIANCE WITH ANY PART OF THIS RENTAL AGREEMENT. THIS RENTAL AGREEMENT IS VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW, AND ANY RIGHTS TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICE OR RENT ANY RENTAL PRODUCTS HEREUNDER ARE REVOKED IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS.
You acknowledge that this Rental Agreement is entered into pursuant to and as part of the Loop Membership Terms of Service, which have previously been, or are concurrently being, accepted by you.

Subject to and conditioned upon your compliance with the terms of this Rental Agreement, you may request to rent from Loop certain high-quality baby products (“Rental Products”) by submitting an order through the Service or by contacting Loop’s customer service team. You agree that any order so submitted is an offer to rent, under the terms of this Rental Agreement, the identified Rental Products. All orders must be accepted by Loop or Loop will not be obligated to rent the Rental Products to you. Loop may choose not to accept orders at its sole and absolute discretion, even after Loop has sent you a confirmation email with your order number and the details of the Rental Products you have ordered for rental. Unless otherwise agreed to in advance by Loop, you are limited to no more than ten (10) concurrent Rental Product rentals at any time. When you place an order for Rental Products directly with Loop’s customer service team (including via phone or email), you authorize Loop to access your User Account in order to reflect the order and allow the order to be viewable through your User Account.
(b)Rental Term. In the event that Loop accepts an order submitted by you, Loop will rent to you, on a month-to-month basis, those Rental Products identified in the accepted order. The rental period with respect to a specific Rental Product shall commence on the date that the Rental Product is delivered to you pursuant to Section 5(a) hereof, and, unless sooner terminated as set forth herein, shall continue until the earlier to occur of (i) your return of the Rental Product in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 5(b) hereof, (ii) termination of your rental pursuant to Section 5(e) or Section 6 hereof, or (iii) termination of your Loop Membership Plan pursuant to the terms of the Membership Terms of Service (the “Rental Term”).
(c)Rental by Commercial Renters.

You agree to provide us with such customer’s email address so that we may provide all relevant terms and conditions to such customer, and you agree to take such further steps as Loop may request to allow Loop to secure and document your customer’s acceptance of the same.
(a)Rental Products. You agree and acknowledge that Rental Products made available to you for rent hereunder are likely to have been previously used, and you shall have no right to refuse delivery of any Rental Products solely on the basis that the Rental Products have been previously used.

Subject to Section 6 hereof, Loop shall have and retain title to all Rental Products, and you acquire no ownership, title, right, equity or interest in the Rental Products, other than the limited rental rights contemplated hereby. You understand and acknowledge that this transaction is a rental and not a conditional sale or financing agreement. You may not grant a security interest of any kind in the Rental Products, and you agree to keep the Rental Products free and clear from all levies, attachments, liens, and encumbrances. In the event that any person other than Loop attempts to create or assert an interest in the Rental Property, you must immediately notify Loop and take all such action as Loop may require.

(e)Rental Product Defects. Loop carefully inspects all Rental Products prior to rental. You agree and acknowledge, however, that some manufacturer or other defects may not be detectable at all times and may be outside of the reasonable control of Loop. In the event that any Rental Products rented to you hereunder are found to be defective during the Rental Term, please cease use of the applicable Rental Product immediately and contact Loop at email@example.com. Where such defect is not caused by the misuse of the Rental Product or any violation by you of this Rental Agreement, Loop agrees to promptly replace the defective Rental Product with another unit of the same kind. All determinations as to the cause of defects and whether any Rental Product is eligible for replacement under this Section 3(e) shall be made by Loop in its sole discretion.
(f)Exchange of Rental Products. The Service is designed to provide users with short-term rental access to a variety of high-quality baby products, which allows users the ability to assess Rental Products for fit and functionality without long-term commitment and for limited expense. Accordingly, if you are dissatisfied with any Rental Product or otherwise determine that a Rental Product does not meet your needs, you may cancel your rental and submit an order for a different Rental Product in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Rental Agreement.

You hereby authorize Loop to charge your Payment Method for any fees so assessed.
(e)Condition of Rental Products on Return. Loop wants you to feel comfortable using and taking full advantage of the Rental Products rented to you hereunder. Normal wear and tear, as well as the occasional loss of small accessories, is expected.

6.Purchase of Rental Products.
(a)Early Buy-out. Loop may give you the option to purchase from Loop, during the Rental Term and at the then-current Buy-out Price, certain Rental Products then rented by you (a “Buy-out Purchase”). For purposes of this Section, the “Buy-out Price” shall equal (i) Loop’s retail list price for a new unit of the applicable Rental Product, as shown on the applicable Rental Product’s detail page on the Site as of the date of purchase (the “Retail Price”), minus (ii) the sum of all monthly rental fees paid by you to Loop as of the date of purchase and during the current Rental Term with respect to the applicable Rental Product (but expressly excluding any delivery fees, restocking fees, insurance fees, taxes, penalties, or other amounts) (“Aggregate Rental Fees”). Please contact Loop at firstname.lastname@example.org should you wish to make any Buy-out Purchase. Where and if available, you may also make a Buy-out Purchase through the Rental Product purchase function accessible through your User Account. Any Buy-out Purchase will be effective upon the receipt by Loop of (x) the full amount of the Buy-out Price, and (y) signed copies of any releases, acknowledgments, or other documentation as Loop may require with respect to the Buy-out Purchase. Buy-out Purchases are only available where, at the date of purchase, the Retail Price exceeds the Aggregate Rental Fees with respect to the applicable Rental Product. Please also note that Buy-out Purchases may not be available with respect to all Rental Products.
(b)Terms of Purchase. All Buy-out Purchases are made on an “as-is” basis, and are final and non-refundable. You agree and acknowledge that Loop shall not have, and you fully release Loop from, any and all liability for any defects in Rental Products subject to any Buy-out Purchase, whether such defects are latent or otherwise. You agree and acknowledge that your rental of the Rental Products and your obligations with respect thereto (including, without limitation, your obligation to pay rental fees and other amounts) shall remain in full force until the effective date of any applicable Buy-out Purchase. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, upon the effective date of any Buy-out Purchase, your rental of the applicable Rental Product shall terminate and, except with respect to any terms specified as surviving, this Rental Agreement shall terminate with respect to the applicable Rental Product.
(c)Product Take-Backs. At any time following a Buy-out Purchase, you may elect, at your option and in your sole discretion, to request that Loop retake ownership and possession of the purchased Rental Product (a “Take-Back”). You may initiate a Take-Back by scheduling pick-up of the applicable Rental Product through contacting Loop’s scheduling team at email@example.com or, where available, through the scheduling function accessible through your User Account. The Take-Back shall be deemed complete, and title to and ownership of the applicable Rental Product shall be deemed to have transferred to Loop, when (a) the Rental Product is in the possession and control of Loop or its personnel, and (b) you have executed such acknowledgements or other documents as Loop may require to evidence the transfer of the Rental Product to, and the relinquishment of your rights with respect to, the applicable Rental Product. You shall not be entitled to any payment or other compensation for any Rental Product returned to Loop by way of a Take-Back. Following the completion of the Take-Back, the applicable Rental Product shall be the sole and exclusive property of Loop, to be used, disposed of, or otherwise dealt with by Loop in any manner it sees fit.
7.Term and Termination. This Rental Agreement shall remain in full force and effect while you use the Service. Loop may terminate or restrict your access to any or all of the Service (including your ability to rent Rental Products) or your User Account, for any reason, and without warning, and Loop reserves the right to discontinue or modify any aspect of the Service (including the offered Rental Products) at any time. Any termination of this Rental Agreement is without prejudice to any rights and obligations of the parties accrued up to and including the date of termination. Upon termination of this Rental Agreement, you will remain liable for any accrued charges and amounts which become due for payment before or after termination and, except as otherwise expressly set forth in Section 6, will immediately return to Loop any Rental Products.

In order to rent, submit an order to rent, or effectuate a Buy-out Purchase of any Rental Products, you must have a current valid credit card or other payment method acceptable to Loop ("Payment Method"). By providing a Payment Method to Loop, you are expressly authorizing Loop to charge to you the rental fees and other amounts applicable to your rental of Rental Products, at the applicable frequency and at the then-current rate, and to charge you the Buy-out Price for any Buy-out Purchase requested by you.

For the avoidance of doubt, any such suspension of fees shall not impact or negate any other of your obligations under this Rental Agreement or under the Membership Terms of Service, including, without limitation, your obligations to pay any membership subscription fees and to return the applicable Rental Product upon termination of the Rental Term.
(e)Rental Cancelation. You may cancel your rental of any Rental Product any time; provided, however, that no rental cancelation will become effective (and you will continue to be charged rental fees and other applicable charges until) the applicable Rental Product is returned to Loop in accordance with the procedures of Section 5(b) hereof, or where the applicable Rental Products are damaged, lost, stolen, or otherwise are not returned by you, upon payment of all charges assessed to you under Section 5(e). LOOP DOES NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS WITH RESPECT TO ANY RENTAL FEES OR OTHER ASSOCIATED COSTS, INCLUDING FOR ANY PARTIAL MONTHS OCCURRING IN THE RENTAL TERM.

(g)Promotions. Loop may offer from time to time promotions on the Site or with respect to the Service that may affect rental pricing and that are governed by terms and conditions separate from those set forth in this Rental Agreement. If there is a conflict between the terms for a promotion and this Rental Agreement, the promotion terms will govern.

THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY SHALL NOT REPLACE OR MODIFY THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THE LOOP MEMBERSHIP TERMS OF SERVICE, OR OTHERWISE OPERATE TO EXPAND LOOP’S LIABILITY THEREUNDER OF HEREUNDER.

Please read this Section carefully. It impacts the rights that you may otherwise have. It provides for resolution of most disputes through individual arbitration instead of trial courts and class actions. This “Dispute Resolution” section survives any expiration or earlier termination of this Rental Agreement.
Informal Dispute Resolution. As a condition precedent which must be satisfied prior to initiating any arbitration or other action against the other party, both you and Loop agree to the following dispute resolution procedure: In the event of any controversy, claim, action or dispute arising out of or related to the Site or any transaction conducted thereon, the Service, any Rental Products made available to you in connection with this Rental Agreement, or the breach, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of this Rental Agreement ("Claim"), the party asserting the Claim must first try in good faith to settle such Claim by providing written notice, by first class or registered mail, to the other party describing the facts and circumstances (including any supporting documentation) of the Claim. The party asserting the Claim must allow the receiving party 30 days in which to respond to or settle the Claim.
For purposes of this Section, notices must be sent as follows:
- If to Loop: to DVx Loop, Co., Attn: Legal/Compliance, DVX Loop Co, 24 School Street, Floor 2, Boston, MA 02108, with a copy emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If to you: your last-used billing address or the billing and/or delivery address listed in your User Account.
Arbitration. To the extent you cannot resolve any Claim through the informal dispute resolution procedure set forth above, and except as otherwise set forth herein, a Claim must be resolved through binding individual arbitration. You agree to give up your right to go to court to assert or defend your rights under this Rental Agreement and with respect to any Claim. You and Loop each expressly delegate to the arbitrator the authority to determine the arbitrability of any Claim, including the scope, applicability, validity, and enforceability of this arbitration provision.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a written request to Loop at: DVx Loop, Co., Attn: Legal/Compliance, DVX Loop Co, 24 School Street, Floor 2, Boston, MA 02108, with a copy emailed to email@example.com.

In accordance with the AAA Rules, you must also send a copy of your written demand for arbitration to AAA when submitting your request to Loop. In the event that the AAA is unable or unwilling to initiate arbitration within fourteen (14) days of receiving a demand for arbitration, arbitration may be conducted by JAMS, Inc. (in accordance with its Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures) or by any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. You and Loop each agree that this Rental Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and that this arbitration provision will be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law and will not be governed by state law. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim, and must follow and enforce this Rental Agreement as a court would. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor Loop may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a written request to Loop at: to DVx Loop, Co., Attn: Legal/Compliance, DVX Loop Co, 24 School Street, Floor 2, Boston, MA 02108, with a copy emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. You agree that the arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) pursuant to its Consumer Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement.

In accordance with the AAA Rules, you must also send a copy of your written demand for arbitration to AAA when submitting your request to Loop. In the event that the AAA is unable or unwilling to initiate arbitration within fourteen (14) days of receiving a demand for arbitration, arbitration may be conducted by JAMS, Inc. (in accordance with its Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures) or by any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. You and Loop each agree that this Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and that this arbitration provision will be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law and will not be governed by state law. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim, and must follow and enforce this Agreement as a court would. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor Loop may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction.
In lieu of arbitration, and notwithstanding anything in this section to the contrary, either you or Loop may bring any individual claim in small claims court consistent with the jurisdictional and dollar limits that may apply, but only if it is brought and maintained as an individual claim. Additionally, and notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, nothing in this section shall prohibit you or Loop from seeking temporary injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent an imminent or stop an actual breach of this Rental Agreement.
Class Action and Jury Waiver. You and Loop each agree that any proceeding, whether in arbitration or in court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If a court or arbitrator determines in an action between you and Loop that this class action waiver is unenforceable, the arbitration agreement set forth above will be void as to you. If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, you and we each waive any right to a jury trial.
(a)Assignment. You may not assign or transfer this Rental Agreement or any rights or obligations hereunder to any other person without Loop’s prior written consent. Any purported assignment in violation of this paragraph is void and of no effect. This Rental Agreement is freely assignable by Loop. This Rental Agreement shall be binding on the parties and their permitted successors and assigns. A person who is not a party to this Rental Agreement has no right to benefit under or to enforce any term of this Rental Agreement.
(b)Governing Law. Any dispute arising from or related to this Rental Agreement, your access to or use of the Service, or your rental of any Rental Products hereunder will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of California, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall have no applicability. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts located in Santa Clara County, California.
(c)Force Majeure. We will not be liable for any delay or failure in the performance of our obligations under the Rental Agreement if the delay or failure is due to any cause outside of our reasonable control.
(d)Notices. Except as otherwise set forth herein, any notice given under this Rental Agreement by any party to another party must be in writing and sent by email, and will be deemed to have been given upon transmission. Except as otherwise set forth herein, (i) notices to Loop must be sent to email@example.com, and (ii) notices to you will be sent to any email address associated with your User Account. For contractual purposes, you consent to receive communications from us in electronic form, and you agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
(e)Severability and Waiver. If any part or provision of this Rental Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unenforceable, or in conflict with the law, that part or provision shall be replaced with a provision which, as far as possible, accomplishes the original purpose of that part or provision, and the remainder of this Rental Agreement will continue in full force and effect. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Rental Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If we waive any breach of this Rental Agreement, such waiver will not constitute a waiver of any other breach. No waiver will be effective unless made in writing. If you are a California resident, then with respect to any releases included herein you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states, “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.”
