Please read these General Website Terms and Conditions (these "Terms and Conditions”) carefully. BY ACCESSING THE SITE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, INCLUDING ANY AND ALL REVISIONS OR MODIFICATIONS HERETO WHICH MAY BE MADE BY THE COMPANY IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION FROM TIME TO TIME.

Please also consult our Privacy Policy, available at [https://www.gearflow.com/privacy-policy/cms/view/9] (as it may be amended from time to time, the "Privacy Policy”), for a description of our privacy practices and policies.

Services: Unless expressly stated otherwise, the services provided by the Company (the "Marketing Services”) are limited to informing users of the potential availability for purchase and/or rent of certain tools, parts equipment and accessories ("Equipment”) and facilitating Transactions (as defined below) by listing Equipment on the Site, processing Transactions and collecting fees on behalf of Suppliers (as defined below).

Any fees and/or consideration paid to the Company is paid to the Company in connection with these Marketing Services unless otherwise indicated.  To be clear, the Company does not: (i) negotiate terms of purchase transactions, rental transactions or settle disputes between users of the Site; (ii) own or provide Equipment for purchase or rental; (iii) operate an Equipment purchase or rental service; (iv) otherwise accept custody of Equipment; or (v) provide services other than the Marketing Services (such other services collectively referred to herein as "Excluded Services"). The Excluded Services are provided by Suppliers or third parties who are neither our agents nor acting in our behalf and we have no responsibility whatsoever regarding the Equipment or the sale or rental of such Equipment. We are not responsible for any consequences arising from the Excluded Services, including, without limitation, consequences arising from your dealings with any Supplier, your use of the Equipment or any complications or defects with the Equipment or use thereof.

Suppliers; Supplier Agreements: The Company lists the Equipment on the Site and, as such, facilitates (i) the sale by Suppliers and purchase by you of certain Equipment ("Sale Transactions”); and (ii) the reservation for rental by you of the Equipment ("Rental Transactions," and together with Sale Transactions, "Transactions”) between users of the Site, such as you ("Customers” or "you”), and the independent owners or lessors, of the Equipment (the "Suppliers").

Each Supplier lists all information regarding such Supplier’s Equipment and related Transactions on such Supplier’s subpage of the Site (the "Supplier Storefront”).  The Company makes no representation or warranty with respect to any portion of the Supplier Storefront, including, without limitation, whether any information regarding Equipment for sale or rent is accurate.  You acknowledge and agree that the Company has not undertaken any inspection or review of any Equipment and that the Supplier is solely responsible for the condition of all Equipment. You further acknowledge and agree that no Supplier is under any obligation to undertake any Transaction with you, and that any Supplier may agree to or disagree to enter into any Transaction with you in its sole and absolute discretion.  The Company does not monitor or review Transactions or proposed Transactions and has no responsibility to require a Supplier to enter into any Transaction with you.

The Company does not set the prices for Transactions, review any information on the Supplier Storefront, inspect any Equipment or charge you for any fees, taxes or services provided by Suppliers.  

For Rental Transactions, a Supplier may require you to execute a rental agreement or other agreement governing your rental of the underlying Equipment (each, a "Supplier Agreement”).  Unless otherwise agreed to between yourself and Supplier, you covenant and agree to sign any such Supplier Agreement upon request by Supplier, prior to undertaking a Rental Transaction.  By undertaking a Rental Transaction, you agree in all cases to abide by the applicable Supplier Agreement(s). You acknowledge and agree that the Company has not reviewed any Supplier Agreement, has no obligation to review any such Supplier Agreement and makes no statements, representations or warrants regarding the fairness or legality of any such Supplier Agreement.

For certain Sale Transactions, the Supplier’s return, dispute resolution and other policies related to sales of such Equipment ("Return/Dispute Policies”) may apply, and the Company has no obligation to hold any funds until the underlying dispute is resolved.  The Site may note when Return/Dispute Policies apply to Transactions. Unless otherwise agreed to between yourself and the Supplier, you covenant and agree to abide by all such Return/Dispute Policies.  By undertaking a Sale Transaction where Return/Dispute Policies apply, you agree in all cases to abide by the applicable Return/Dispute Policies. You acknowledge and agree that the Company has not reviewed any Return/Dispute Policies, has no obligation to review any such Return/Dispute Policies and makes no statements, representations or warrants regarding the fairness or legality of any such Return/Dispute Policies.

In connection with our provision of the Marketing Services, Suppliers may represent and warrant to us that they have full authority to list the Equipment as available Transactions. We are not responsible for confirming whether any such representation or warranty is true and correct, nor are we responsible if any such representation or warranty becomes inaccurate or incomplete prior to your purchase or use of the underlying Equipment.  In addition, the Company will never be responsible for any agreement or other arrangements between you and any Supplier, regardless of whether such agreement or other arrangements are related to your booking and use of Equipment.

Your Agreements Related to Sale Transactions and Rental Transactions:

Equipment available for Transactions on the Site is categorized as "Heavy Equipment” or "Light Equipment.”  In all cases, you hereby agree to submit through the Site the applicable Purchase Price (as defined herein) or Rental Price (as defined herein) for any Transaction you undertake through the Site.  You hereby further covenant and agree as follows:

Following your receipt of Heavy Equipment that you have purchased, you have three Business Days (as defined below) following the delivery date of such Heavy Equipment (the "Inspection Period”) to notify both the Company and the Supplier through the Site of any issue whatsoever with the Equipment (any such issue, a "Dispute,” and any such notification, a "Dispute Notification”). You acknowledge and agree that Dispute Notifications must be submitted during the Inspection Period.  You also acknowledge and agree that the Company shall have no obligation to independently inquire with either you or the Supplier as to whether there is a Dispute.  As used herein, "Business Day” means any day upon which federal banking instructions are open for business in Chicago, Illinois.


  1. If you submit a Dispute Notification during the Inspection Period, the Company shall hold the purchase price you paid for the Equipment (the "Purchase Price”) until the Company receives joint notification from each of you and the Supplier that either (i) the Dispute has been resolved by mutual agreement, in which case the Company will not return the Purchase Price to you; or (ii) the Dispute is unable to be resolved, in which case the Company may return the Purchase Price to you, less (i) any documented costs of shipping expended by the Supplier to initially ship the Equipment to you, with such documentation to be as determined between the Supplier and the Company ("Supplier Shipping Costs”); and (ii) any fees whatsoever associated with any movement or holding of the Purchase Price ("Service Fees”).  You acknowledge and agree that the Company will not return to you any portion of the Purchase Price following the expiration of the Inspection Period.   


  1. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary forgoing, the Company shall have the option, at any time prior to the resolution of a Dispute, to remit the Purchase Price or any portion thereof to the Supplier without any liability whatsoever to you, and you shall be required to work with the Supplier directly to resolve such Dispute. For purposes of clarity, and without limitation of anything in these Terms and Conditions, you hereby acknowledge and agree that the Company has no obligation to resolve or otherwise get involved with any Dispute.   


Rental Transactions of Heavy Equipment and Light Equipment:


  1. You agree to sign and abide by all Supplier Agreements related to Rental Transactions of Equipment.  Any such Supplier Agreements shall cover, among other items, disputes between yourself and the Supplier, any extensions of a Rental Period (as defined herein) (a "Rental Period Extension”) and any defects in Equipment.  You acknowledge and agree that any Rental Period Extension, whether as a result of mutual agreement between yourself and the Supplier or as a result of your withholding of the underlying Equipment, shall be dealt with directly between yourself and the Supplier.  


  1. If you cancel the Rental Transaction prior to the start of the rental period initially booked by you on the Site (the "Rental Period”), the Company will refund you the full amount of the price you paid for the rental (the "Rental Price”), less any Supplier Shipping Costs and any Service Fees.


  1. If you return the Equipment prior to the expiration of the Rental Period, the Company shall refund you a pro rata amount of the Rental Price equal to the remaining portion of the Rental Period as of the date of delivery to Supplier of the Equipment.


  1. If you submit a notification through the Site of an issue with the Equipment during the Rental Period (a "Rental Dispute”), the Company shall hold the Rental Price indefinitely until the Company receives joint notification from each of you and the Supplier that either (i) the Rental Dispute has been resolved by mutual agreement, in which case the Company will not return the Rental Price to you; or (ii) the Rental Dispute is unable to be resolved, in which case the Company may return the Purchase Price to you, less (i) any Supplier Shipping Costs; and (ii) any Service Fees.


  1. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary forgoing, the Company shall have the option, at any time prior to the resolution of a Rental Dispute, to remit the Rental Price or any portion thereof to Supplier without any liability whatsoever to you, and you shall be required to work with the Supplier directly in order to resolve such Rental Dispute.  For purposes of clarity, and without limitation of anything in the Agreement, you hereby acknowledge and agree that the Company has no obligation to resolve or otherwise get involved with any Rental Dispute.


Equipment Purchases of Light Equipment:


  1. Any purchases of Light Equipment that you make through the Site shall be governed by the Return/Dispute Policies related to such Light Equipment. Unless otherwise agreed upon between yourself and the Supplier, you hereby agree to abide by any such Return/Dispute Policies if you make purchases of Light Equipment through the Site.  Although the Site will give you the capability, anytime following delivery of Light Equipment you’ve purchased, to notify both Company and Supplier of any issue whatsoever with the Light Equipment (any such issue, a "Light Equipment Dispute”), and you will have the option to submit any such notification, Light Equipment Disputes will be governed by the related Return/Dispute Policies unless otherwise agreed upon between yourself and the Supplier.     


  1. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary forgoing, Company shall have the option, at any time prior to the resolution of a Light Equipment Dispute, to remit the Purchase Price to the Supplier without any liability whatsoever to you, and you shall be required to work with the Supplier directly resolve such Light Equipment Dispute.  For purposes of clarity, and without limitation of anything in the Agreement, you hereby acknowledge and agree that Company has no obligation to resolve or otherwise get involved with any Light Equipment Dispute.

Escrow Obligations of the Company: The Company may hold the Purchase Price or Rental Price (collectively, "Submitted Funds”) you submit through the Site for Transactions until they are delivered to the Supplier or returned to you pursuant to these Terms and Conditions. In relation to the Company’s obligation to hold such Submitted Funds, the Company shall neither be responsible for, nor chargeable with, knowledge of, nor have any requirements to comply with, the terms and conditions of any other communication, agreement, instrument or document between yourself and the Supplier, if any, nor shall the Company be required to determine if any person has complied with any such agreements, nor shall any additional obligations of the Company be inferred from the terms of such agreements.  In the event of any conflict between the terms and provisions of these Terms and Conditions and those of other agreements between yourself and the Supplier, the Company shall be entitled to rely upon these Terms and Conditions. Except as otherwise set forth in these Terms and Conditions, the Company may rely upon and shall not be liable for acting or refraining from acting upon any written notice, document, instruction or request furnished to it under these Terms and Conditions (including through the Site) and believed by it in good faith and without gross negligence or willful misconduct to be genuine and to have been signed or presented by the proper person or persons without inquiry and without requiring substantiating evidence of any kind.  The Company shall be under no duty to inquire into or investigate the validity, accuracy or content of any such document, notice, instruction or request.
