Billing and Payment
You hereby authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your Payment Method (as defined below) for the Purchase Price or Plan Fees of your selected Service on a recurring basis (if applicable), plus any deposits or additional fees including RR Fees as they are incurred. You hereby authorize us to automatically upgrade your Service and charge higher Plan Fees and deposits accordingly if you opt to upgrade or choose to rent more items than your current Service allows for.
We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities ordered per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.
When you place a purchase or rental order for a Product, you hereby authorize Baby Gear Group to charge your payment card or other payment instrument (“Payment Method”) for the Purchase Price, Plan Fees, and all other fees you may incur. You must ensure that at all times your Payment Method is valid and up-to-date. You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to us and notifying us of any changes to such information. We will charge your Payment Method the amount of the Purchase Price or Plan Fees plus applicable deposits and taxes immediately upon your order. A reservation of a Product through the Services is an order for the rental of that Product, regardless of how far in advance that Product is reserved.
In addition, at the time of your rental order for Products, you hereby authorize us to charge your Payment Method for replacement price an amount up to the Retail Price of all new Products, in the manufacturer’s newest version, or similar Products, plus applicable taxes and delivery fees to a Baby Gear Group facility; provided that we will charge your Payment Method for an amount that is greater than the Plan Fees and deposits and taxes if you do not return the Product at the termination of your Service.
Plan Fees provided on the site exclude all federal, state, and local taxes, goods and service tax, fees, customs, duties, levies, and other governmental assessments, all of which shall be paid by you directly or, if paid by Baby Gear Group, shall be paid by you to Baby Gear Group in connection with your rental order.
We use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill you for any Services and process payments for any service using the billing information on your Account. By choosing to use Services, you agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of such Services in accordance with the applicable payment terms, and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge your chosen Payment Method. You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method, but if the Payment Processor is not able to charge your preferred Payment Method, you authorize us to use any Payment Method stored on record for your Account. We reserve the right to suspend or cancel an order or terminate your Service in the event that we are unable to successfully charge the provided Payment Method. We are not responsible for errors by the Payment Processor, and we reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that we or the Payment Processor make(s) even if we have or our Payment Processor has already requested or received payment. If we, through the Payment Processor, do not receive payment from you, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand.
Some of the Services are offered as a recurring plan that may consist of an initial period, for which there will be an initial charge, followed by recurring period charges as agreed to by you (“Membership Services”). If you choose a Membership Service, your Payment Method will be charged the then-current applicable rate (including all applicable taxes and fees) on the date that you sign up for such Membership Service. This date is your “Billing Date.” The applicable fee will automatically renew, meaning your Payment Method will be automatically charged the then-current applicable rate for the Membership Service during each subsequent period, such as monthly, until you Pause or Cancel (each as defined below) the Membership Service or terminate your Account. Recurring charges will occur on a going-forward basis each period on or about the same date as your Billing Date (however, if your Billing Date does not exist in a given month, you will be billed on or around the last day of that month). The period between your Billing Dates is referred to as a “Billing Period.” As of your first Billing Date, the Membership Services are available to you, subject to these Terms. Your Account will remain active and you will remain eligible to participate in the Membership Services for subsequent Billing Periods after we successfully receive your payment for each applicable Billing Date. If you do not want to continue to be charged on a recurring basis, you must Cancel or Pause the applicable Membership Service and return all rented Products or terminate your Account and return all rented Products before the end of the then-current Billing Period.
Baby Gear Group reserves the right to change your Billing Date after your Service begins. In this case, we will charge your Payment Method a prorated rate for the partial Billing Period until the new Billing Date. On or about the new Billing Date, your charges will resume at the then-current rate.
By choosing a recurring Membership Service, you acknowledge that such Paid Services have an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation and return of all rented Products. WE MAY SUBMIT PERIODIC CHARGES (E.G., MONTHLY) WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU, UNTIL YOU PROVIDE PRIOR NOTICE (RECEIPT OF WHICH IS CONFIRMED BY US) THAT YOU HAVE TERMINATED THIS AUTHORIZATION OR CANCELLED OR PAUSED THE SERVICES OR YOUR ACCOUNT. Such notice will not affect charges that have already been submitted or are in process. Such notice will also not affect charges for the repair or replacement of Product.
To change or terminate your Payment Method or payment authorization, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the amount to be charged to your Account varies from the amount you preauthorized (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of state taxes), we shall provide notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge before the scheduled date of the transaction. Any agreement you have with your payment provider will govern your use of your Payment Method. You agree that we may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each Billing Period.
Your non-termination or continued use of a Membership Service reaffirms that we (and/or our Payment Processor) are authorized to charge your Payment Method for that Membership Service. We may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive our right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially selected to use the Membership Service.
Accuracy of Billing and Account Information
You agree to provide current, complete and accurate billing and account information for all rentals and purchases made with us. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address and credit card numbers and expiration dates, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed. If your Payment Method is canceled for any reason (e.g., for loss or theft) or if you become aware of a potential breach of security, you must promptly notify us and update your Payment Method. Changes to such information can be made by emailing email@example.com or calling 248-660-0818.
IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE ANY OF THE REQUIRED INFORMATION OR KEEP SUCH INFORMATION UP-TO-DATE, YOU AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE MAY CONTINUE CHARGING YOU USING ANY PAYMENT METHOD YOU HAVE ON RECORD, FOR ANY USE OF SERVICES UNDER YOUR ACCOUNT, UNLESS YOU HAVE CANCELLED OR PAUSED YOUR PAID SERVICES OR TERMINATED YOUR ACCOUNT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS. If we are unable to process any payment, we will contact you for an updated Payment Method. If you do not provide a valid Payment Method within 3 days, we will terminate your Service and all rented Products will need to be returned within 3 days or you will incur an RR Fee.
Delivery & Returns
You must provide us with accurate shipping information, so that we can timely deliver Products to you. You are responsible for keeping the shipping information for your Account up-to-date. If you provide us with a shipping address that is invalid or where you cannot securely accept Products upon delivery, or if you do not keep your shipping information up-to-date, you are solely responsible for any resulting loss, theft, or damage to the Products. Following delivery to the designated address, as between you and us, you will be solely responsible for the condition of each Product until you return such Product (including while they are in transit). We reserve the right to reject, cancel, or prohibit any rentals or sales of Products for any reason. Please see our FAQ Section for more information regarding deliveries.
You agree to return each rented Product to Baby Gear Group on or before the return date for the Product identified in the applicable Service description for your order. We may, but are not required to, permit you to extend your order for a Product, subject to pre-payment of any additional fees applicable to that Product for the period of time of the extension. We are not responsible for any personal or other items left in the Products or which are returned to us. If you believe you have accidentally or otherwise sent any such items to us, please contact us as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may, but are not required to, assist you in attempting to locate such items at your request, and we assume no responsibility or liability if we attempt to locate such items.
Baby Gear Group will determine the method of return of each Product, whether by shipping carrier or courier pickup. When returning a Product, you must take care to package the Product safely and securely to prevent damage during transit. You are responsible for any damage or loss during transit.
If a carrier specified, you must use the shipping carrier specified on the pre-paid shipping label provided to you. If you have lost the label, you may contact us for a replacement label. We are not responsible for any shipping fees if you do not use the provided pre-paid shipping label. We will not be responsible for loss, theft, or damage to Products that occur during shipment back to us, or for any fees or expenses that you incur due to delays in Baby Gear Group receiving the Product if you do not use the specified carrier and pre-paid shipping label. Baby Gear Group does not ship Products outside of the United States, and you may not return Products to us from outside of the United States without our prior written permission.
If a courier pickup is specified, you must set up a mutually agreeable appointment time with us. Your address must be accessible and the Product must be ready for pickup at the appointment time. We do not recommend leaving any Products unattended while waiting for pickup. If the courier is not able to complete the pickup due to an inaccessible address or Products not ready, you will need to schedule a new pickup. Failed pickups will count against your Service Plan allotment. You will not be refunded any fees for a failed pickup.

If you wish to Pause your Membership Service, you must return each Product still in your possession by your next Billing Date, in accordance with these Terms, for the Pause to go into effect. If you do not return each Product in your possession prior to your next Billing Date, your Membership Service will not be Paused and you will continue to be charged for the Membership Service. Once Paused, we will provide notice to you on or before the date that your Membership Service reactivates. You can reactivate your Membership Service during a Pause at any time prior to the set date of reactivation, and that the date on which you manually reactivate your Membership Service will become your new Billing Date. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to initiate a Pause or to reactivate your Membership Service.

You may terminate your Account or your Membership Service (“Cancel”) at any time. If you Cancel your Membership Service, you may use the Membership Service until the end of your then-current Billing Period and your membership will not be renewed after the expiration of your then-current Billing Period. You must return all Products in your possession in accordance with these Terms no later than the expiration of your then-current Billing Period or the return date in the applicable online invoice (whichever is earlier) to avoid incurring additional charges, including late fees. Please contact us at email@example.com to Cancel your Membership Service.

We may, in our sole discretion, place limitations or caps on the maximum amount of Referral Credits that you can receive in any period of time. Please see our FAQ Section for limitations or caps on Referral Credits.
You may not redeem Invitations or earn Referral Credits by (i) promoting your Invitation through paid marketing, such as search engine or social media marketing (e.g., Facebook, AdWords, Yahoo), (ii) posting your Invitation on any public forum or coupon site where you are not the primary content owner (e.g., you may post a referral link on your personal social media account, but you may not post it on a site like RetailMeNot), (iii) using the Services in violation of these Terms, or (iv) violating any other restriction that we may impose on participants in the Referral Program.
You may not obtain any cash or money in exchange for Referral Credits. You are responsible for notifying Baby Gear Group if you believe the number of Referral Credits in your Account is incorrect.
Baby Gear Group reserves the right to modify, suspend or terminate the Referral Program, in part or in whole, at any time, for any reason, or, upon reasonable notice to you (including by email), to void or remove Referral Credits from an Account at any time.

Please read the following Arbitration Agreement carefully (subsections (a) though (f) below will be referenced herein as the “Arbitration Agreement”) because it requires you to arbitrate disputes and claims with BABY GEAR GROUP and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from BABY GEAR GROUP. Both you and Baby Gear Group acknowledge and agree that for the purposes of any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms, Baby Gear Group’s officers, directors, employees, and independent contractors (“Personnel”) are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms, and that upon your acceptance of these Terms, Personnel will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you as the third-party beneficiary hereof.
(a) Arbitration Rules; Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms directly through good-faith negotiations, which shall be a precondition to either party initiating arbitration. If such negotiations do not resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days, such dispute shall be finally settled by binding arbitration in accordance with this Arbitration Agreement. The arbitration will proceed in the English language, in accordance with the American Arbitration Association under its Consumer Arbitration Rules, as amended by this Arbitration Agreement (the “Rules”) then in effect, by one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes. The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination should be made by the AAA or by the arbitrator. The arbitrator’s decision will follow the terms of this Agreement and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of this Agreement, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Unless Arbitrator decides otherwise, each party shall pay one half of the costs of arbitration.
(b) Class Action Waiver. You agree that any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted and you are agreeing to give up the ability to participate in a class action. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Arbitration Agreement or any other provision of these Terms or in the American Arbitration Association’s Consumer Arbitration Rules, disputes regarding the enforceability, revocability, or validity of the foregoing class action waiver may be resolved only by a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. In any case in which (i) the dispute is filed as a class, collective, or representative action, and (ii) there is a final judicial determination that all or part of such class action waiver is unenforceable, then the class, collective, and/or representative action, to that extent, must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the portion of such class action waiver that is enforceable shall be enforced in arbitration.
(c) Small Claims Court; Infringement. Notwithstanding the foregoing obligation to resolve disputes using arbitration, both you and Baby Gear Group may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Oakland County, Michigan or any United States county where you live or work. Furthermore, both you and Baby Gear Group will have the right to pursue injunctive or other equitable relief at any time, from any court of competent jurisdiction, to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights.
(d) Waiver of Jury Trial. You and baby gear group are each waiving the right to trial by a jury and instead choosing to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. Except for disputes that qualify for small claims court, all disputes arising out of or related to these Terms or any aspect of the relationship between you and Baby Gear Group, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, will be resolved pursuant to this Arbitration Agreement. Except as provided above regarding the class action waiver, such disputes include, without limitation, disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this arbitration provision, including the enforceability, revocability or validity of the arbitration provision or any portion of the arbitration provision. All such matters shall be decided by an arbitrator and not by a court or judge. However, as set forth above, the preceding arbitration requirement shall not apply to disputes to the extent relating to the interpretation or application of the class action waiver above, including its enforceability, revocability, or validity.
(e) Exclusive Venue. In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits either you or Baby Gear Group to litigate any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms in court, then the foregoing Arbitration Agreement will not apply to either party, and both you and Baby Gear Group agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the state or federal courts located in Oakland County, Michigan.
(f) Severability. If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration Agreement section will be null and void. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Baby Gear Group.

Limitation of Liability
In no case shall Baby Gear Group LLC, our directors, franchisees, officers, employees, affiliates, agents, contractors, interns, suppliers, service providers or licensors be liable for any injury, loss, claim, or any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages of any kind, including, without limitation personal injury, property damage, lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, loss of data, replacement costs, or any similar damages, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, arising from your use of any of the Service or any Products rented or procured using the Service, or for any other claim related in any way to your use of the Service or any Product, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of the Service or any Content (or Product) posted, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the Service, even if advised of their possibility. Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL ANY OF THE BABY GEAR GROUP PARTIES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, (B) ANY SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS, SERVICES OR TECHNOLOGY, (C) ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF (I) ONE-HUNDRED ($100) U.S. DOLLARS OR (II) THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO BABY GEAR GROUP IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES IN THE TWELVE (12)-MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE FIRST EVENT GIVING RISE TO A CLAIM OR (D) ANY MATTER BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL OR CERTAIN OTHER DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, THE BABY GEAR GROUP PARTIES DO NOT MAKE ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES AND THE BABY GEAR GROUP PARTIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INTERRUPTIONS OR ERRORS RELATED THERETO.
In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms of Service, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
The failure of either you or us to exercise or enforce, in any way, any right under the Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of any rights hereunder, and the waiver of any breach shall not act as a waiver of subsequent breaches. Baby Gear Group’s acceptance of payment with knowledge of a default by you shall not constitute a waiver of any breach.
You and Baby Gear Group agree that these Terms are the complete and exclusive statement of the entire mutual understanding between you and Baby Gear Group relating to the subject matter hereof, and that these Terms supersede and cancel all previous, contemporaneous, or conflicting written and oral agreements, communications, and other understandings relating to the subject matter of these Terms (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Service). These Terms can only be modified by Baby Gear Group. You hereby acknowledge and agree that you are not an employee, agent, partner, or joint venture of Baby Gear Group, and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind Baby Gear Group in any respect whatsoever.
Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms of Service shall not be construed against Baby Gear Group.
You may not, without our prior written consent, transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms or any part thereof, or your rights or obligations hereunder, or your Account, in any way (including by operation of law or otherwise). Any attempt to do so shall be a material default of these Terms and shall be void. We may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations (in whole or in part) without your consent or notice to you.
Nonperformance of either party shall be excused to the extent that performance is rendered impossible by strike, fire, flood, governmental acts, orders or restrictions, or any other reason where failure to perform is beyond the control and not caused by the negligence of the non-performing party. Upon giving prompt notice of force majeure to the other party, the party so affected shall be released without any liability being attached to the canceling party or the other so long as the circumstances of force majeure continue. Upon the termination of circumstances of force majeure, performance of both parties shall be required to resume.
Subject to the foregoing, these Terms shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto, and their heirs, personal representatives, agents, officers, directors, shareholders, partners, servants, employees, successors and assigns, but shall not confer, expressly or by implication, any rights or remedies upon any other party.
These Terms of Service and any separate agreements whereby we provide you Services shall be governed by and construed in all respects by the laws of the United States and the laws of the State of Michigan, without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof. The federal and state courts within the State of Michigan shall have exclusive jurisdiction to adjudicate any dispute arising out of these Terms. You hereby expressly consent to (i) the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts within Michigan, and (ii) service of process being made upon you by registered mail sent to the most recent address in your Account.
Each of the parties hereto shall execute and deliver such other and further documents and instruments, and take such other and further actions, as may be reasonably requested of them for the implementation and consummation of these Terms and the transactions herein contemplated.
