By using the Kiosk, you represent and warrant that (a) you are at least eighteen (18) years of age, or the age of legal majority in your jurisdiction (if different than eighteen (18)); and (b) that you have the capacity to enter into and agree to these Terms. You also acknowledge and agree that your use of the Kiosk is voluntary on your part and is at your own risk. You hereby assume any potential risks outlined in these Terms or other potential risks related to such usage.
ChargeItSpot Kiosks are strictly for the purpose of charging mobile Phones (“Phones”). Damage or theft of the Kiosk or Phones contained within is prohibited. The Kiosk may not be used to charge or store any other devices or personal items, including but not limited to, tablet computers, laptop computers, portable battery chargers, rechargeable batteries, headphones and/or speakers, electronic cigarettes and/or vaping devices, or any other items. Furthermore, your use of the Kiosk must comply with all applicable laws and must not violate any third party rights. Personal items may be removed after 12 hours and may be discarded, sold, or given away at the sole discretion of ChargeItSpot, Merchant, and/or Sponsor. ChargeItSpot is not responsible and shall have no liability to you or any third party for damaged, stolen, or lost Phones or other property. Users of ChargeItSpot Kiosks are responsible for removing their Phones within 12 hours of the time that they place their Phone in the kiosk, and/or before the close of business of the Merchant, whichever is sooner.
The Kiosk may employ an Ultraviolet C Light System (“UV-C System”) to eliminate select viruses and bacteria* from the surface of your Phone while it is being charged by the Kiosk. Actual results of the virus and bacteria elimination process provided by the UV-C System may differ based on the condition, size, and/or material of the Phone and, if applicable, its case. You must use the Kiosk as instructed and for the minimum amount of time shown on the user interface screen. If you do, the UV-C System is intended to eliminate (up to 99.9%) a select list* of viruses and bacteria commonly found on Phones. However, please be advised that the UV-C System is not intended to replace other hygiene measures which you are solely responsible for.
You must also use the Kiosk as instructed on the user interface screen to ensure that the UV-C System is safe for use with your Phone, as well as cases and covers made from plastic, glass, or metal. If your Phone includes a case made from any material other than plastic, glass, or metal, you accept the responsibility to determine whether or not such case can be safely used with the UV-C System. Because the effectiveness of the virus and bacteria elimination process provided by the UV-C System depends, upon you correctly using the System, the amount of time it is used, and the original condition of your Phone, ChargeItSpot therefore cannot and does not, to the extent consistent with applicable law, make any guarantee, representation, or warranty as to the effectiveness or completeness of the virus and bacteria elimination process provided by the UV-C System or that it will eliminate all viruses or bacteria with all such uses. ChargeItSpot also expressly disclaims all liability for any damage that results to: (a) a Phone that was already defective or in a poor condition at the time it was placed in a Kiosk, or included a case not made of plastic, glass, or metal; or (b) any other personal items or electronic devices that are placed in the Kiosk in violation of these Terms. Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light, including the type of ultraviolet light utilized by the UV-C System, can cause discoloration in certain materials. You acknowledge that while the Kiosk is programmed to limit the operating time of the UV-C System to the minimum amount of time to complete the virus and bacteria elimination process, repeated exposure to ultraviolet light may accelerate the natural aging process of your Phone and its case and that ChargeItSpot is not responsible for such natural wear and tear.
You consent to your photograph being taken in connection with your use of the Kiosk. You hereby grant to ChargeItSpot a limited, non-exclusive, irrevocable, and royalty free right to use any such photograph, solely for the purposes of providing services and improving the Kiosk (including the security and customer service thereof). You acknowledge that ChargeItSpot shall not owe any financial or other remuneration to you or anyone else for using such photograph. For the sake of clarity, ChargeItSpot shall not exploit or use your photograph for any purpose other than to provide (a) security for your Phone and the Kiosk (including the mitigation of any loss or damage to your Phone or the Kiosk) (b) and customer service with respect to your use of the Kiosk, which may include ChargeItSpot’s internal use to improve the service provided by the Kiosk. ChargeItSpot will not share or disclose your photograph to third parties, except as required by law or as necessary for security purposes to mitigate any loss or damage to your Phone or the Kiosk.
If your Phone is employer-owned or otherwise owned by a third party, you agree to these Terms on behalf of your employer or such third party and represent and warrant that you have the authority to do so. Receiving our text/SMS messages may cause you to incur SMS or data charges with your wireless provider. We have no control over these charges, and if you do not wish to be charged, you should follow our opt-out instructions.
THE KIOSK IS PROVIDED “AS-IS.” OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS, CHARGEITSPOT DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES IN CONNECTION WITH THE KIOSK, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. CHARGEITSPOT MAKES NO PROMISES ABOUT THE KIOSK, INCLUDING ITS FUNCTIONS OR RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR NEEDS OR TO ACHIEVE ANY SPECIFIC LEVEL OF SANITIZATION. CHARGEITSPOT ALSO DOES NOT MAKE ANY WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, FREEDOM FROM DEFECTS, VIRUSES OR MALWARE, OR ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED OPERATIONS. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW, CHARGEITSPOT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, FINANCIAL LOSSES OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES AND CHARGEITSPOT’S TOTAL LIABILITY FOR ANY CLAIMS UNDER THESE TERMS OR RELATING TO YOUR USE OF A KIOSK IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US TO USE THE KIOSK.
FURTHERMORE, CHARGEITSPOT PROVIDES THIS KIOSK SOLELY FOR THE PURPOSE OF PROVIDING THE MERCHANT OR SPONSOR A PHONE CHARGING SOLUTION THAT CAN BE USED BY THEIR RESPECTIVE CUSTOMERS AND VISITORS. CHARGEITSPOT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR, NOR DOES IT HAVE ANY LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO THE CONDITIONS OF THE KIOSK’S LOCATION OR ANY OF THE MERCHANT’S PREMISES SURROUNDING THE KIOSK’S LOCATION THAT MUST BE ACCESSED IN ORDER TO USE THE KIOSK. USER AGREES TO DEFEND, INDEMNIFY, AND HOLD CHARGEITSPOT AND ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, MEMBERS, MANAGERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS OR CONTRACTORS HARMLESS FROM AND AGAINST ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, SUITS, JUDGMENTS, CLAIMS, LIABILITIES, DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND EXPENSES ARISING FROM, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, USER BEING PRESENT AT THE LOCATION OF THE KIOSK.
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the United States and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, excluding Pennsylvania’s conflict of laws rules.
ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS SHALL BE RESOLVED BY FINAL AND BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION UNDER THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION’S COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES AND THE SUPPLEMENTARY PROCEDURES FOR CONSUMER RELATED DISPUTES AND YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY. IN THE INTEREST OF EFFFICIENCY, ARBITRATION MAY BE MORE LIMITED THAN A LAWSUIT, WITH CERTAIN ACTIONS, SUCH AS DISCOVERY AND THE RIGHT TO APPEAL, BEING LIMITED OR UNAVAILABLE. THE ARBITRATION SHALL BE HELD IN PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA AND YOU AND CHARGEITSPOT CONSENT TO SUCH METHOD OF DISPUTE RESOLUTION.
These Terms may be updated periodically on the Kiosk and/or our website (www.chargeitspot.com) and without prior notice to you to reflect changes in how we may provide the Kiosks and UV-C Systems and in our personal information practices. We will indicate at the top of the Terms when it was most recently updated. To view these Terms online, please visit www.chargeitspot.com/privacy-terms/kiosk/.
