Rentlete Enthusiast Refund Policy

Effective as of: April 30, 2020

These terms and conditions govern rentlete ’s policy for Enthusiast refunds (“Enthusiast Refund Policy”) and the obligations of the Athlete   associated with the Enthusiast Refund Policy. The Enthusiast Refund Policy applies in addition to rentlete ’s Terms of Service (“rentlete Terms”). The Enthusiast Refund Policy is available to Enthusiasts who book and pay for an experience through the rentlete  Platform and suffer a Eligible Issue (as defined below). The Enthusiast’s rights under this Enthusiast Refund Policy will supersede the Athlete  ’s cancellation policy.

All capitalized terms shall have the meaning set forth in the rentlete Terms or Payments Terms unless otherwise defined in this Enthusiast Refund Policy.

By using the rentlete  Platform as an Athlete   or Enthusiast, you are indicating that you have read and that you understand and agree to be bound by this Enthusiast Refund Policy.

1. Eligible Issue

An “Eligible Issue” means any one of the following:

(a) the Athlete of the experience (i) cancels a booking shortly before the scheduled start of the booking, or (ii) fails to provide the Enthusiast with the reasonable ability to access the experience (e.g. does not provide the location and/or a access code).

(b) the Listing’s description or depiction of the experience is materially inaccurate with respect to:

  • the scope of the experience (e.g., time, equipment or prerequisite skills required).
  • the physical location of the experience (proximity).

(c) at the start of the Enthusiast’s booking, the experience: (i) is not generally accessible; (ii) contains safety or health hazards that would be reasonably expected to adversely affect the Enthusiast’s experience in rentlete ’s judgment.

2. The Enthusiast Refund Policy

If you are a Enthusiast and suffer a Eligible Issue, you are covered by this policy as follows:

Up to 15 minutes after start time. If you report a Eligible Issue up to 15 minutes after start time, we agree, at our discretion, to either (i) reimburse you the amount paid by you through the rentlete  Platform (“Total Fees”), or (ii) use our reasonable efforts to help you find and book another experience which is reasonably comparable to or better than the experience described in your original booking in terms of features and quality. rentlete shall decide whether an issue reported by a Enthusiast qualifies as a Eligible Issue, whether to reimburse or rebook a Enthusiast who suffers a Eligible Issue, and whether an alternate experience is comparable or better.

More than 15 minutes after start time. If you report a Eligible Issue more than 15 minutes after start time, we agree, at our discretion, to either (i) reimburse you up to the Total Fees depending on the nature of the Eligible Issue suffered, or (ii) use our reasonable efforts to help you find and book another experience for any unused time left in your booking which is reasonably comparable to the experience described in your original booking in terms of features and quality.

rentlete ’s decisions under the Enthusiast Refund Policy are final and binding on Enthusiasts and Athletes but do not affect other contractual or statutory rights you may have. Any right that you may have to initiate legal action remains unaffected.

3. Conditions for making a Claim

To submit a valid claim for a Eligible Issue and receive the benefits with respect to your booking, you are required to meet each of the following conditions:

(a) you must be the Enthusiast that booked the experience;

(b) you must report the Eligible Issue to us in writing or via telephone within 15 minutes of discovering the existence of the Eligible Issue, and you must provide us with information (including photographs, videos, or other written or tangible evidence) about the experience and the circumstances of the Eligible Issue;

(c) you must respond to any requests by us for additional information or cooperation on the Eligible Issue within the time specified by rentlete ;

(d) you must not have directly or indirectly caused the Eligible Issue (through your action, omission or negligence);

(e) unless otherwise specified by rentlete  or rentlete  advises you that the Eligible Issue cannot be remediated, you must use reasonable efforts to try to remedy the circumstances of the Eligible Issue with the Athlete  ; and

(f) in order to receive a reimbursement of Total Fees or assistance with booking an alternative experience, you must agree to leave the experience. If you choose to experience in the experience, you may still qualify for a partial refund at rentlete ’s discretion as described in this policy (regardless of whether you reported the Eligible Issue up to 15 minutes after start time).

4. Minimum Quality Standards, Athlete   Responsibilities and Reimbursement to Enthusiast

4.1 If you are a Athlete  , you are responsible for ensuring that the experiences you list on the rentlete  Platform are accessible, adequately and accurately described in the Listing description, safe and do not present a Enthusiast with Eligible Issues. During a Enthusiast’s experience, Athletes should be available, or make a third-party available, in order to try, in good faith, to resolve any Eligible Issues or other Enthusiast issues.

4.2 If you are a Athlete  , and if (i) rentlete  determines that a Enthusiast has suffered a Eligible Issue related to an experience listed by you and (ii) rentlete  either reimburses that Enthusiast (up to their Total Fees) or provides an alternative experience to the Enthusiast, you agree to reimburse rentlete  up to the amount paid by rentlete  within 30 days of rentlete ’s request. If the Enthusiast is redirected to an alternative experience, you also agree to reimburse rentlete  for reasonable additional costs incurred to redirect the Enthusiast. You authorize rentlete  Payments to collect any amounts owed to rentlete  by reducing your Payout or as otherwise permitted pursuant to the Payments Terms.

4.3 As an Athlete  , you understand that the rights of Enthusiasts under this Enthusiast Refund Policy will supersede your selected cancellation policy. If you dispute the Eligible Issue, you may notify us in writing or via telephone and provide us with information (including photographs or other evidence) disputing the claims regarding the Eligible Issue. In order to dispute a Eligible Issue, you must use reasonable and good faith efforts to try to remedy any Eligible Issue with the Enthusiast unless rentlete  advises you that the Eligible Issue cannot be remediated or the Enthusiast has ended the experience.
