  3. Renter agrees to return all rented books to College Book Store by the official closing date of the Ohio University term for which the books are rented. Should these books for any reason not be returned to College Book Store by this date, or if books are returned in damaged, un-saleable condition, renter hereby authorizes College Book Store to charge their credit card of record an amount equal to College Book Store's current new retail price of the book(s). Late returns may be subject to a late fee..

  5. Renter agrees to keep the credit card provided for this rental agreement in good standing (not cancelled, with a balance below the purchasing limits of the card) until the textbooks have been returned or until College Book Store has collected any non-return, damage or late fees as described above.
  6. All rented books must be returned in acceptable re-saleable condition, as judged by the bookstore staff. Any loss or damage to books rented under this agreement are solely the responsibility of the renter.
  7. By entering into this agreement, the renter acknowledges that they understand the agreement and will abide by it. They agree specifically not to contest a charge, on the credit card they provided, made within the scope of the non-return, damage or late fees associated with the rental as described above.
