User agreements are universally horrid to read, this is no different. Sorry.Dated: 2007-11-01
This user agreement applies to RentNotBuy and the the service it offers (referred to as the "Service"). Before using the Service, each user must read and agree to this document. It is advised that you keep a copy of this document for future reference.
It is important to note that RentNotBuy is purely a listing service, we have no control over and do not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of items advertised, the truth or accuracy of listings, the ability of owners to rent items, the ability of renters to pay for items, or that a owner or renter will actually complete a transaction.
While it is very rare, we reserve the right to close any user account for any reason at any time without prior notice. We also reserve the right to stop offering the Service to any or all of our users and to change the terms of the Service at any time.
Violation of the user agreement will result in immediate termination of the account.
