1. About these rental terms
1.1 These terms and conditions relate to the renting of innovation products and technology through the ‘Wonder’ rental platform, available through the website at https://wonder.tech as well as associated software applications (the “Platform”). These rental terms (together with our general Platform terms and conditions of use, available at https://wonder.tech) set out how users (“Users” or “ you”) can rent tech products (“Products”) from people who have them (“Owners”).
1.2 The Platform is operated by The Wonder Experience Limited (“ Wonder” or “us” or “we ”). We are a company registered in England and Wales under company number 10655868 whose registered office is 68-80 Hanbury Street, London, E1 5JL.
1.3 By offering to rent Products through the Platform you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by these rental terms and conditions (and any documents referred to in them, including our general Platform terms and conditions of use). If you do not agree with or accept any of our terms you will not be able to rent Products through the Platform.
2. How the Platform works
2.1 Through the Platform, Wonder allows Owners to make Products that they own available to Users to rent, so Users can try out the Products and learn more about them.
2.2 However, although Wonder has developed the Platform to facilitate transactions between Owners and Users we are not a party to, will not actively participate in, and provide no guarantees in relation to, any such transactions.
3. Disclaimer and limitation of our involvement
3.1 Any information that is available on the Platform regarding a Product or any rental terms relating to that Product are supplied to the Platform by Owners. Wonder makes such information available on an “as is” basis. Although we reserve the right to verify information provided to us by Owners we are not obliged to do so. We make no guarantee that information displayed on the Platform is up-to-date, accurate or free from errors, and we will not be responsible, or liable in any way, for the accuracy of any such information.
3.2 You agree that you are solely and exclusively responsible for, and shall bear all risks associated with:
3.2.1 any interactions between you and any Owners, whether online, in person or otherwise;
3.2.2 any reliance that you place on any information provided through the Platform; and
3.2.3 your use of any Products that you rent through the Platform.
4. Conditions of use of Products
4.1.1 you will only be renting the Product and that no provision of these terms gives you any rights of ownership in relation to the Product or any elements of it (including physical, electronic or other elements of whatever nature);
4.1.2 you shall not sell, rent, lease, lend or otherwise transfer or assign (in any way) any Product, or any rights of possession that you may have in relation to any Product, to any third party without the express written consent of Wonder and the relevant Owner; and
4.1.4 you shall not, and shall not attempt to, disassemble, decompile, reverse-engineer, deconstruct, damage or otherwise alter any physical, intangible or electronic (including software) aspects or elements of any Product except as reasonably required for the proper and ordinary use of that Product in accordance with clause 4.1.3.
4.2 You agree that the warranties given by you in clause 4.1 are given for the benefit of Wonder and of the Owner of the relevant Product.
4.3 If any Product becomes damaged through the proper and ordinary use of that Product (i.e. such damage has not arisen as a result of your breach of any of the warranties given by you in clause 4.1) then you should notify us as soon as possible and arrange for the Product to be returned to us together with a reasonably comprehensive account of the events that resulted in the damage.
5. End of rental term
5.1 Subject to clause 5.2, you agree and warrant that at the end of the agreed rental term you shall return the Product (together with its case and any accessories or periphery products that were supplied with the Product, as applicable), to us (or to a third party as directed by us) in materially the same condition you received it/them.
5.2 If you wish to extend the rental period or to purchase the Product you have rented you must notify us and the Owner before the end of the original rental period. If the Owner agrees to sell the Product to you that shall constitute a separate agreement between you and the Owner and these terms shall not apply to such purchase agreement. If the Owner does not agree to sell the Product to you then you shall return the Product in accordance with clause 5.1.
