THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SHALL CONCLUSIVELY BE DEEMED ACCEPTED AND BINDING ON THE CUSTOMER, UPON DELIVERY (AS THAT TERM IS DEFINED HEREIN) OF THE EQUIPMENT, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE CUSTOMER HAS SIGNED THE RENTAL AGREEMENT. STARLITE AND CUSTOMER AGREE THAT THIS AGREEMENT SHALL APPLY TO ANY RENTAL OF EQUIPMENT FROM STARLITE TO THE CUSTOMER OCCURRING ON OR AFTER THE DATE OF THIS AGREEMENT EVEN THOUGH THE SPECIFIC EQUIPMENT, DURATION OF RENTAL AND/OR PRICE FOR THE RENTAL MAY VARY. THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL CONTINUE TO APPLY TO ALL FUTURE RENTAL TRANSACTIONS BETWEEN THEM, WITHOUT NECESSITY OF EITHER PARTY EXECUTING A NEW RENTAL AGREEMENT. STARLITE RESERVES THE RIGHT AT ANY TIME TO MODIFY THIS AGREEMENT AND TO IMPOSE NEW OR ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS, AND THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS IN EFFECT AT THE TIME OF EACH NEW ORDER OR DELIVERY SHALL BE THOSE ON STARLITE’S WEBSITE AT THE TIME OF SUCH ORDER OR DELIVERY.

1. DEFINITIONS: In this Agreement, the following words and expressions have the following meanings:

  • “Starlite” means Starlite Productions International, Inc. with offices at 9 Whittendale Drive, Moorestown, NJ 08053, USA.
  • “Customer” means the person, firm or entity whose details are set out in Starlite’s Rental Order who is renting the Equipment and includes any of its representatives, officers, employees or agents who are jointly and severally liable for performance of the Customer’s obligations under the Agreement.
  • “Equipment” means any property, apparatus, material or equipment (including software, all accessories supplied either as part of a kit or as standard with the main unit) as set out in Starlite’s Order together with all cases, replacements, repairs, additions, attachments thereto and all future Equipment rented, which has been prepared by Starlite and approved by Customer.
  • “Delivery” shall be deemed to have occurred upon the earliest of (i) The date of shipment of the Equipment covered by the Agreement from the point of shipment; or (ii) Receipt of Equipment by Customer, Customer’s Agent or Shipper.
  • “Return” shall be deemed to have occurred only at such time as the Equipment is returned to Starlite’s facility during Starlite’s regular business hours and Starlite shall have accepted the same, unpacked the Equipment from its shipping container, inspected and determined the Equipment to be in good working order and condition by a Starlite employee (even if Customer hires Starlite to transport the Equipment).

2. DIFFERING TERMS: THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY TO THE EXCLUSION OF ANY OTHER TERMS THAT THE CUSTOMER SEEKS TO IMPOSE OR INCORPORATE, OR WHICH MAY BE IMPLIED BY TRADE, CUSTOM, PRACTICE OR COURSE OF DEALING. IF ANY PURCHASE ORDER OR OTHER CORRESPONDENCE SUBMITTED BY CUSTOMER AT ANY TIME CONTAINS ANY TERMS OR CONDITIONS WHICH ARE DIFFERENT, CONTRARY, OR IN ADDITION TO THESE TERMS, SUCH TERMS ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY OBJECTED TO AND REJECTED BY STARLITE AND SHALL BE WHOLLY INAPPLICABLE TO ANY RENTAL MADE OR SERVICES PERFORMED HEREUNDER, AND SHALL NOT BE BINDING IN ANY WAY ON STARLITE. STARLITE’S FULFILLMENT OF ANY PURCHASE ORDER SHALL NOT BE CONSTRUED AS ASSENT TO ANY OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS PROPOSED BY CUSTOMER, AND SHALL NOT CONSTITUTE A WAIVER BY STARLITE OF ANY OF THE TERMS CONTAINED HEREIN.

3. AGENCY: Each person executing this Agreement represents and warrants that he or she is duly authorized and has the legal capacity to execute and deliver this Agreement. The execution hereof by an agent of Customer shall conclusively establish the authority of such agent to contract herein unless Starlite receives written notification to the contrary prior to the loading of the Equipment for transit.

4. ACCEPTANCE: The Customer shall inspect each item of Equipment prior to taking possession thereof, and Customer shall only accept delivery of the Equipment if Customer determines that the Equipment is in agreement with Starlite’s Rental Order, it is in good working order and repair, and it is suitable for Customer’s needs. Starlite shall not be responsible for any discrepancies not brought to Starlite’s attention at the time of delivery.

5. RENTAL PERIOD: The Rental Period shall be as set out in Starlite’s Rental Order and shall commence upon the Delivery of the Equipment and continue until the Return of the Equipment (as those terms are defined herein) unless the Agreement is terminated earlier in accordance with these Conditions. If the Customer is not in default, the Rental Period may be extended by mutual written agreement of both parties for a similar rental period or such other term as the Parties may agree at the time of renewal. If the Rental Period is not extended in accordance with this clause and the Equipment is not returned to Starlite on the return date set out in the Rental Order, the Customer will be charged at the daily rate until the Equipment has been returned to Starlite. Starlite’s rental rates are based on the length of the rental period indicated in Starlite’s Order.

6. TITLE & OWNERSHIP: Nothing in the Agreement creates an agreement of sale or the creation of any security interest in the Equipment for the benefit of Customer. The Equipment is, and shall at all times remain the property of Starlite, and the Customer shall have no right title or interest therein or thereto except the right of possession and use of the Equipment during the rental period, pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. The Customer shall not remove, cover or obscure any serial number, tags or nameplates on the Equipment identifying Starlite as the owner of the Equipment. Unless covered by a specific supplemental agreement signed by Starlite, Customer has no option or right to purchase the Equipment, and no portion of any rental payment made hereunder shall constitute payment for any equity interest in the Equipment. The Equipment is, and at shall at all times remain, personal property of Starlite, notwithstanding that the Equipment or any part thereof may now be, or hereafter become, in any manner affixed or attached to any other personal or real property.

7. SHIPMENT: At the Customer’s request, Starlite will ship the Equipment to an address provided in writing by Customer. The Customer shall be responsible for all costs of shipment by Starlite, including insurance.

Customer must clearly note any damage during shipment on the carrier’s delivery receipt and report such damage to Starlite within twenty-four (24) hours of receipt. Customer shall be responsible, at Customer’s expense, for the return shipment of the Equipment to Starlite. The Equipment must be returned in the original shipping containers unless such container has been damaged in a manner that would jeopardize safe shipment, in which case the Customer must use an equivalent container.

8. SUBLETTING & ASSIGNMENT: Customer shall not sublease re-rent, assign, transfer or loan the Equipment or any interest therein to any third party without the prior written consent of Starlite, and any such action by Customer, without Starlite’s written consent shall be void. Customer shall not remove the Equipment from the State listed on Starlite’s Rental Order without Starlite’s prior written consent nor under any circumstances remove the Equipment from the United States of America.

The Equipment shall remain at the sole risk of the Customer during the Rental Period and any further term during which the Equipment is in the possession, custody or control of the Customer (“Risk Period”) until the Return of the Equipment to Starlite.

10. RETURN OF THE EQUIPMENT: Upon expiration of the Rental Period or termination hereof, the Customer shall return the Equipment to Starlite at Starlite’s facility during regular business hours, at Customer’s sole expense, in the same condition as when delivered to Customer, ordinary wear and tear resulting from the proper use thereof alone excepted. If any Equipment is not returned by the due date, or if the Equipment is returned in a damaged or excessively worn condition due to any cause whatsoever, Customer shall pay Starlite the reasonable cost of repair and continue to pay rent on the Equipment at the regular rental rate until all repairs have been completed. Starlite shall be under no obligation to commence repair work until the Customer has paid to Starlite the estimated cost therefor. Any item of Equipment not returned for a period more than seven (7) days after the expected date of return, without previous written consent from Starlite, will be deemed a total loss. Customer shall pay to Starlite damages of the greater of (a) the current Manufacturer’s Suggested List Price or the full replacement value of any item of Equipment deemed to be a total loss hereunder. The acceptance of the returned Equipment shall not be a waiver by Starlite of any claims that Starlite may have against Customer, or a waiver of claims for latent or after-discovered damage to the Equipment.

11. RATES AND CHARGES: The rent payable for the Equipment shall be as set forth in Starlite’s Rental Order and the Customer shall pay in full all amounts due hereunder, as per the terms approved by Starlite, in immediately available funds on the Due Date without any offsets, deductions, claims or withholdings.

If Customer terminates this Agreement prior to the expiration of the term indicated on Starlite’s Rental Order, Starlite may adjust the rent retroactively to reflect any higher rates normally applicable for the shorter duration term for which the Equipment was actually rented.
