Agreement

Updated October 23, 2018

We’ve written Livible’s customer agreement (the “Agreement“) as clearly as possible but if anything isn’t clear just call us at (844) LIVIBLE (548-4253) or email us at help@livible.com and we’d be happy to answer your questions.

1. REGISTRATION. This Agreement constitutes a “registration” by you as the “Customer.” As part of this process, you will either create access credentials in the form of a unique Email Address and Password or sign-up using your Facebook account. The services described herein are only available to persons with the legal capacity to enter into this Agreement. By clicking “ACCEPT” you represent that: (i) you are at least age 18 or older, (ii) all information you provide is accurate and is yours, or you have the right to provide it, and (iii) that you intend to enter into this Agreement, and you agree to all of the terms and conditions stated herein. As a registered Customer, you are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Email Address and Password or Facebook account. Customer acknowledges that anyone logging into their account using their access credentials is evidence of their identity and relives Company of any liability for delivery of of Customer property to a fraudulent or illegal claimant. Since this information allows access to your account, which includes your credit card information, you must keep it as much to yourself as you would keep any credit card number or personal identification number. Customers agrees to immediately notify Company in writing or by electronic mail to help@livible.com of any lost, stolen or suspected unauthorized use of your Email Address and Password or Facebook account.

2. LEASE, NO BAILMENT. Customer agrees that this agreement is a lease and does not create a bailment relationship, and Company is not a bailee of Customer’s property and Company does not take care, custody, or control of the stored goods.

3. FEES AND CHARGES. Customer agrees to pay for the pickup, delivery, monthly storage, purchase of cardboard boxes, packing materials or reusable containers, hourly fees for peronal packers or other staff, label purchase and protection plans they order according to the rate schedule found at www.livible.com or as otherwise agreed in writing between the parties. Monthly storage is initially billed on the pickup day and prorated for the number of days remaining in the month. Thereafter monthly storage is billed on the first day of the month and, like rent, is not refundable. The amount charged these services can be adjusted by Company at any time. Amounts that have been pre-paid for these services will not be affected by changes in pricing. Any fees or charge adjustments will not affect the other Agreement terms, which will remain in full force and effect. All payments are nonrefundable and there are no reductions or credits for partially used periods.

4. VOLUME SAVINGS. Monthly storage fees are typically based on the total cubic feet of all the items Customer is storing with Company on the first day of each month. Storage fees for additional pickups of items during the month will be billed at the rate based on the total cubic feet of all items stored by Customer including additional pickups and deliveries. Company tracks and displays each Customer item and uses industry standard measurements (outside measurement squared to widest dimension) to determine the dimensions and cubic feet of each item. For non-standard items Company measures, displays and bills the actual cubic feet. If Customer believes the industry standard measurements used by default are larger than their items, Company will measure ALL customer items and adjust for subsequent months but not retroactively. Company provides automatic savings each month for higher volumes based on the total cubic feet the Customer stores. The current volume savings rates are provided at www.livible.com.

5. TERMS OF PAYMENT. Customer expressly authorizes Company, or any third party providing payment processing services on Company’s behalf, to pre-authorize and charge the applicable fees for each order, including recurring monthly fees for storage, protection plans and any related charges, to the payment method Customer has provided. Customer is responsible for ensuring that all payment method information is up to date. Payment for monthly storage fees and protection plans will be assessed on the first day of each month, without deductions and without demand. If payment is not successfully processed, Company will immmediately send a payment failure email. Company will attempt the resubmit the amount owed for payment for each unpaid order but if it has not been received by the 6th day of the month, a late fee, the greater of $20 or twenty (20) percent of the amount owed on each order, will be added. A late fee assessment does not change the Customer’s obligation to pay in accordance with the Agreement terms, nor diminish Company’s right to terminate the Agreement, lien and foreclose on Customer property, nor affect any other rights or remedies to pursue collection of unpaid amounts under this Agreement. Late payments are subject to additional charges of 1.5% per month, or whatever amount is permitted by applicable laws, whichever is greater. Customer expressly authorizes Company, or any third party providing payment processing services on Company’s behalf, to resubmit any unpaid orders to charge the applicable fees owing to the payment methods Customer provided and agrees they will not dispute such charges as unauthorized.  If Customer disputes an attempt to collect an unpaid order a chargeback fee of $50 may be applied. Customer agrees to pay all fees and costs, including reasonable attorney’s fees, incurred in collection of any delinquent amounts. Customer agrees to reimburse Company for any chargeback fees from the Company’s third-party payment processing services and financial institutions if they dispute a payment and they lose.

6. NO SERVICE, PROTECTION PLAN LAPSE, LIENS AND AUCTION. If Customer fails to pay any fees when due they will be unable to schedule any pickups or deliveries until all amounts owing are paid in full. If such obligations remain unpaid for more than fourteen (14) days, the protection plans will lapse and Company will provide a preliminary lien notice to Customer that includes the amount owing and the late fees. If such obligations remain unpaid for an additional fourteen (14) days, Company has the right to file a lien on Customer’s property and will provide notice to Customer of their intent to auction such property privately or to the public in an additional fourteen (14) days. At the end of that notice period Company can auction Customer property and neither Customer or Company or any employee or family member of either may acquire, directly or indirectly, the Customer property at auction. Customer’s property offered for sale under lien may be sold either in the original packaging or open and uncovered at Company’s sole discretion. Customer agrees that any property auctioned is not personal papers or personal photographs. Company’s lien rights are in addition to all the other rights of Company as provided by law. Company reserves all rights and remedies to pursue collection of any amounts not satisfied through the lien foreclosure and auction process. Partial payments will have no effect on Company’s right to foreclose its lien and sell Customer’s property according to applicable law.

6.1 ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY. If Customer is or subsequently becomes Active Duty Military they need to advise Company of such status and provide their Social Security Number for verification under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act.
