3. Website Platform
The EZMonk website is a rental and service marketplace that enables peer-to-peer transactions. All transactions are between the Owners and Renters of each item, thus, EZMonk is not a part of any transaction. EZMonk is the intermediary that brings the two parties (Owners and Renters) together. As compensation for bringing the two parties together, EZMonk retains a commission fee based on the total cost of the transaction (refer to EZMonk’s Pricing Policy).
EZMonk makes no claim or warrants the accuracy, truthfulness or the safety of the rental or service items described by an Owner. Owners post their items at their own risk. Renters rent items and services at their own risk. By using the EZMonk website both Owners and Renters agree to defend, indemnify and hold EZMonk or EZMonk’s management harmless from any and all claims, loss or damage, including but not limited to attorneys’ fees and costs, arising out of any rental or service transaction.
The EZMonk website is open to the public for browsing. However, in order to post a rentable item or service, and to rent an item or service, a person is required to have an EZMonk user account.
Owners are expected to provide an accurate and truthful description of an item being listed. Descriptions should include the items condition, purpose, defects, flaws, and expected return condition. For services, Owners should provide details of their expertise, what they can perform and any limitations. If an item has a serial number this should be indicated and a picture of the serial number provided with the item.
An Owner acknowledges that any and all item listed for rent is listed at the Owner’s own risks and Owner will hold no liability claims against EZMonk for the items condition upon return by the renter to Owner. Additionally, Owners will not hold EZMonk accountable for any lost, damaged, or unreturned items.
When listing an item to rent, the Owner agrees to the commission fees as provided in EZMonk’s Pricing Policy.
EZMonk reserves the right to remove any listed item if the company feels it is offensive, inappropriate and contains untruthful or inaccurate description.
Renter acknowledges that any item they rent or service requested is at their own risk and will hold no liability claims against EZMonk for the accuracy or truthfulness of the items description or the safety of the item itself. When renting an item the Renter agrees to the Owners terms and conditions associated with the item and waives any and all liability claims against EZMonk.
As a member of the EZMonk website you are solely responsible for your account and your account activities. Accounts cannot be transferred to another person or a third party. Any violation is cause for a member’s account to be cancelled.
It is recommended that each member choose a secure password and not share their passwords with anyone. Passwords should be difficult to decode, but easy to remember. For added security, passwords should be changed at a minimum every 90 days.
Members are required to keep a valid email address, phone number and mailing address on file as a means of contact by either EZMonk or a potential Owner or Renter. Messages sent to a members email account are considered to be received and read by the member within 24 hours.

7. Member Safety
EZMonk cannot guarantee the authenticity of each member and their identification. As such, it is important that everyone takes the same safety measures online as they would do in any public setting. Safety precautions should be taken into account when a physical rental or service transaction is taking place.
Feedback comments can be made for each interaction to provide a description of the transaction and to provide a rating. Feedback comment and ratings of members should be used when entering into an agreement with another member.

The Renter will make a payment to EZMonk using a valid credit card charged through PayPal.

The collection of a commission fee by EZMonk, does not make EZMonk a party in the rental transaction itself. Commission fees are for the management and marketing of the EZMonk website.
All rental fees and commission fees are expressed in US dollars.
