You are obligated to deliver the appropriate payment for items rented or purchased prior to receipt of the rented or purchased equipment. Any disputes regarding a rental or purchase of an item, refund, or shipment shall be resolved as required by these Terms of Service or the applicable Rental Agreement or Purchase Agreement.

3. Joining LPTG is free. LPTG charges a fee for the rental or purchase of equipment through the Site. LPTG's are subject to change at any time and for any or no reason. LPTG may, at LPTG's sole discretion, change some or all of LPTG's services at any time. In the event LPTG introduces a new service, the fees for that service are effective at the launch of the service. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in US Dollars (USD).

4. Collection of Fees. You must have a valid payment method on file (even if utilizing a gift card, free promotion, or credit) and pay all fees associated with our Services by the payment due date. When you provide a payment method (such as a credit card) to us, you confirm that you are permitted to use that payment method. You authorize us (and our designated payment processor) to charge the full amount to the payment method you designate for any and all of transactions on the Site. You also authorize us to collect and store that payment method information, along with other related transaction information. If your primary payment method fails or your account is past due, you authorize us to charge all additional payment methods we have on file, and to employ all legal methods available to collect the amounts, including the engagements of collection agencies or legal counsel. In addition, you may be subject to late fees. If your use of a payment method results in an overdraft or other fee from your bank or provider, you alone are responsible for that fee. LPTG, or the collection agencies we retain, may also report information about your account to credit bureaus, and as a result, late payments, missed payments, failure to return equipment, or other defaults on your account may be reflected in your credit report. In addition to the amount due, delinquent accounts and/or chargebacks will be charged with fees and/or charges that are incidental to the collection of delinquent accounts and/or chargebacks including, but not limited to, collection fees and/or convenience fees and/or other third party charges. You hereby explicitly agree that all communication in relation to delinquent accounts may be made by electronic mail or by phone, as provided to LPTG by you.

If you wish to dispute the information LPTG reported to a credit bureau (i.e., Experian, Equifax, or TransUnion) please contact us at LensProToGo, 130B Baker Ave Ext, Concord, MA. If you wish to dispute the information a collection agency reported to a credit bureau regarding your LPTG Account, you must contact the collection agency directly.

If you use a debit card as your payment method, you agree that LPTG can charge you any amount that becomes due for your account. If you want to change your payment method from direct debit, you can do so at any time through your account settings.

5. If you enter into a transaction with a third party that you discovered through our Site or that contacted you as a result of your participation on our Site and have a dispute over the goods or services you purchased, LPTG has no liability for such goods or services.

6. If LPTG terminates your account, if you close your account, or if the payment of your LPTG fees cannot be completed for any reason, you remain obligated to pay LPTG for all unpaid fees plus any penalties, if applicable. If you have a question or wish to dispute a charge, contact LPTG at policies@lensprotogo.com.

7. Gift Certificates. If you use a gift certificate as the payment method for any rental, purchase or other transaction[JM1] on the Site, the balance of that gift certificate will be applied to the resulting fees. If the balance of your gift certificate is insufficient to complete a transaction, we will ask you to elect an additional payment method to cover the difference. LPTG is not a bank, so gift certificate balances are not deposits and they do not earn interest. Gift Certificate balances are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, or any other entity or insurance scheme, whether governmental or private. LPTG may change the process for using gift certificates or the ways that you can use your resulting balance, at any time as we deem necessary without prior notice to the full extent permitted by law. You may not sell your gift certificate or any balance thereof. Gift certificates are not redeemable for cash unless required by law. Gift Certificate balances don't expire, however, after a time, any remaining balances may be considered abandoned property. If you leave a balance unused for the period of time set forth by your state, country, or other governing body in its unclaimed property laws, or if you delete your account and leave a balance, or if we deactivate your account and you do not meet any conditions necessary to reinstate it within six (6) months, we may process your balance in accordance with our legal obligations, including by submitting funds associated with your balance to the appropriate governing body as required by law.
