LA Photo Party, Inc. (“LAPP”) agrees to provide equipment (the “Equipment”) and services, if any, (“Services”) to the customer (“Client”) under the terms of this Agreement. LAPP includes all brands and all locations in the USA. Any Scope of Work, Quote, Bid, Proposal, Invoice, or similar document issued by LAPP (each an “SOW”), where work is performed under such document, is deemed accepted by Client and incorporated herein. Unless otherwise specifically addressed as a per-event agreement in the SOW, this agreement is effective for one year from the date of execution and will renew for additional one-year terms unless specifically addressed in the SOW or terminated by either party in writing.

  1. The “Rental Term” shall begin on the date the Equipment leaves LAPP’s warehouse and shall end when the Equipment is returned to LAPP at the place designated by LAPP. Fees for Equipment and Services, as applicable, are set forth in the SOW. LAPP may require a security deposit on the Equipment.
  2. LAPP represents that all Equipment will leave its custody in good working order. Client shall be responsible for inspecting the Equipment and immediately notify LAPP of any Equipment determined to be missing or not in good working condition. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT HEREIN, LAPP GIVES NO WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION WITH RESPECT TO THE EQUIPMENT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS OR AGAINST INTERFERENCE OF INFRINGEMENT OR ANY OTHER WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY AGREED TO IN WRITING.
  3. LAPP’s sole obligation and liability to Client in the event of any malfunction or failure of the Equipment solely caused by LAPP shall be to repair the Equipment or provide Client with the same or similar Equipment.
  4. Unless otherwise expressly assumed by LAPP as part of the Services in a SOW, Client is responsible for the Equipment for the entire Rental Term. Client assumes all risk in the use and operation of the Equipment and complying with all federal, state, and local laws or regulations, and all industry standards. Client shall not make any alterations or additions to the Equipment and may not disassemble the Equipment except to the extent necessary to perform standard maintenance and replace consumables.
  5. The Equipment must remain at the venue(s) as set forth in the SOW and may not be transferred without the express prior written approval of LAPP. It shall be lawful for LAPP or its agents at all reasonable times to enter the premises where the Equipment is kept for the purpose of assessing the condition of said Equipment.
  6. This Agreement is not a sale. Client shall not have or at any time acquire any right to possession, including possession through use, loss, damage or failure to return the Equipment. Title to the Equipment shall at all times be in LAPP. Client agrees not to pledge, mortgage or in any other way encumber the Equipment.
  7. Client shall reimburse LAPP for the cost of any repairs (including charges for shipping, labor, and parts) that are required due to any damage to the Equipment occurring during the Rental Term (other than damage which, in the judgment of LAPP, is due to ordinary usage or LAPP’s actions). If any or all Equipment is damaged beyond repair, or lost, or stolen during the Rental Term, Client agrees to reimburse LAPP for the total replacement value of the Equipment (without deduction for depreciation).
  8. At the end of the Rental Term or its earlier termination, Client shall deliver and return the Equipment to LAPP in good condition and repair, reasonable wear and tear excepted. LAPP shall notify the Client of any damages or loss within a reasonable amount of time after the Equipment is returned. Client shall remain responsible for any damage to the Equipment caused during the Rental Period.
  9. Upon return of the Equipment, LAPP may clean the Equipment of any Client Data, however, LAPP shall have no obligation to preserve or erase any Client Data. LAPP is not responsible for unrecorded Client Data or the loss of Client Data due to any cause whatsoever, including but not limited to technical malfunction, physical damages, or errors on the part of LAPP employees, agents, representatives, contractors or subcontractors.
  10. (a) Except as otherwise set forth herein, nonperformance by either Party of any of its obligations under the Agreement will be a Force Majeure, to the extent and only for so long as such performance is rendered impossible by fire, flood, earthquake, elements of nature or acts of God, acts of war, terrorism, riots, civil unrest, strike (other than of the nonperforming Party or its subcontractors), governmental acts, failure of suppliers, including supply chain and manufacturer issues, third party trucking and labor shortages (not caused by a Party), or any other similar cause beyond the reasonable control of the nonperforming Party that would make it impossible, inadvisable or illegal to either render the Services or hold the Event, and the nonperforming Party continues to use commercially reasonable efforts to recommence performance whenever and to whatever extent possible. In the event of a Force Majeure, Client shall reimburse LAPP for its actual costs incurred, and LAPP agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate such costs. (b) LAPP shall not be liable for late delivery caused by the Client’s failure to provide information relevant to the Equipment or Services or comply with this Agreement or Force Majeure.
  11. Client agrees to insure Equipment at all times during the Rental Term. (a) Client shall carry the following insurance: Commercial General Liability insurance (or equivalent) covering operations, completed operation and product liability, personal injury liability and advertising injury, with a limit of $1,000,00 per occurrence and $2,00,000 in the aggregate, naming LAPP as an Additional Insured on a primary basis and waiver of subrogation in favor of LAPP; evidence of Workers Compensation insurance in statutory limits including Employers Liability with a limit of $500,000; and Property insurance on Equipment, on an “all-risk” basis, including windstorm, flood and earthquake perils, and loss in transit, in an amount not less than the full replacement value (NOT rental value) of the Equipment (without deduction for depreciation) naming LAPP as Loss Payee. (b)Client acknowledges it is solely responsible for the payment of any deductibles on any required insurance. LAPP reserves the right to increase these limits based on values and type of event. An umbrella or excess liability policy may be used in conjunction with primary coverage limits to meet the minimum required limits. A valid and compliant insurance certificate evidencing such coverages, terms, deductible amounts, and indication coverage for transit and offsite coverage must be submitted to LAPP prior to the release of any Equipment or Services.
  12. No allowance will be made for unused Equipment. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by LAPP, Client is responsible for ensuring that the Equipment is appropriately stored and transported.
  13. Client will be responsible for paying additional fees for any additional Services and Equipment not included in the SOW. Client will pay LAPP’s current daily rate for late return of the Equipment. Client will incur cancellation fees in the event of any cancellation occurring within 10 days of the start of the Rental Term as follows: 4-10 days = 50% of Fee due; Under 3 days= 100% of Fee due. In the event of cancellation for any reason occurring more than 10 days prior to event, Client shall pay LAPP all actual costs incurred.
  14. Unless referenced explicitly in the SOW, pricing DOES NOT INCLUDE SALES OR USE TAXES. The client will pay for all taxes and withholdings, if applicable, in addition to the agreed-upon price. The client agrees to indemnify LAPP for any taxes incurred and costs relating to penalties and collections.
  15. Unless referenced explicitly in the SOW, pricing DOES NOT INCLUDE SALES OR USE TAXES. The client will pay for all taxes and withholdings, if applicable, in addition to the agreed-upon price. The client agrees to indemnify LAPP for any taxes incurred and costs relating to penalties and collections.
  16. If Client defaults on payment or otherwise breaches any other terms, or if LAPP reasonably believes that the Equipment is in danger of being seized, taken or destroyed, then in any event, LAPP shall have the right to terminate this Agreement, and retake immediate possession of the Equipment and for such purpose, LAPP may enter upon the premises where the Equipment is located and remove it, with or without force or notice, without being liable to the Client in any suit, action or other proceeding.
  17. The failure by LAPP to insist upon strict compliance with these terms and conditions even after a breach or default by Client shall not be construed as waiver of any of LAPP’s rights under this Agreement.
  18. Client agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless LAPP Parties from and against any and all liabilities, claims, demands, actions, losses, damages, and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable outside attorneys’ fees and costs) for personal injury, death or property damage to the Equipment or other property (“Loss”), in any way arising out of or resulting from any of the following: (1) the breach of any terms in this Agreement; or (2) Client’s use or possession of Equipment; or (3) Client’s negligence or willful misconduct or (4) the transport or shipping of the Equipment, if by or arranged by Client. For avoidance of doubt, the indemnity provided by Client to LAPP includes indemnity for claims of personal injury, death, or property arising from civil unrest occurring at any site in which the Equipment is located, without regard to Client’s actual participation in the unrest. For the purpose of this section, Client includes its employees, agents, contractors, or representatives and invitees, and excludes indemnity to the extent a Loss arises from a LAPP Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.
  20. This Agreement may not be assigned by Client unless agreed to in writing by LAPP.

  22. If one or more provisions of this Agreement, or the application of any provision to any party or circumstance, is held to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal in any respect, the remainder of this Agreement shall remain valid and in full force and effect.
  23. LAPP expressly rejects any forms or other documents submitted by Client, including PO terms and conditions. Any attempt to modify, supplement or amend these terms and conditions will be null and void unless agreed to in writing by LAPP.
