Times given for delivery, collection, and return are only estimates and Clouset shall not be liable for any delay in delivery, collection, or return. Clouset, at its sole discretion, will facilitate the transport of your items from the Delivery Zone from your initial pick-up to a Delivery Zone in a new city at pricing to be determined by Clouset and approved by you.
Clouset may cancel, postpone, or otherwise reschedule any delivery, collection, or return of Stored Items for any reason or no reason, including without limitation in the event that Clouset believes, in its sole discretion, that it may endanger any Clouset employee, agent, contractor or other individual due to (including but not limited to) severe weather conditions or by reason of Clouset having limited access to the Delivery Address.

You understand that Clouset is only responsible for those Stored Items that have been visually inspected and photographed by Clouset. You acknowledge that you are solely responsible for verifying that Clouset has photographed and inventoried all the Stored Items and that the inventory Clouset provides you is a true and complete inventory of the personal property tendered. You hereby waive and release Clouset from responsibility for any damage to items that were not packed, sealed, inspected and photographed by Clouset. If any items are not packed into Clouset bags properly you are solely responsible for damage to those items.

You represent and warrant that you own the Stored Items or that you otherwise have the right and authority to store and use the Stored Items in accordance with this Agreement.
The Stored Items must not include and you must not store any of the following in connection with the Storage Services: antiques (whether or not breakable and fragile), perishable goods, firearms, explosives, used tires, plants, birds, fish, other animals, or any other living thing, arms or ammunition, any item which emits fumes, smells or odors, bullion (e.g., gold-silver), jewelry, currency, ivory, precious metals or stones, any drugs, illegal substances or goods, or goods or substances illegally obtained, combustible or flammable materials, liquids or compressed gases, diesel, petrol, oil, gas, artificial fertilizer or cleaning solvents, chemicals, radioactive materials or biological agents, toxic waste, asbestos or other materials of a dangerous or harmful nature, any other toxic, flammable or hazardous goods, or any other items, the possession, usage, or storage of which may detrimentally affect any of your other Stored Items or violate in any way the laws of the United States or any other applicable laws, rules, or regulations (collectively, “Prohibited Stored Items”).
According to Clouset’s sole discretion, Clouset shall regularly conduct, or have its subcontractors conduct, pest control inspections and operations at the storage facilities containing Stored Items.
Clouset or its contractors may at any time without notifying you open any Stored Items to inspect the Stored Items if Clouset: (i) believes, in its sole discretion, that the Stored Items may include any Prohibited Stored Items; (ii) is required to do so by the police, fire services, local authorities or by court order; (iii) determines, in its sole discretion, it necessary for account or warehouse maintenance; or (iv) considers it necessary, in its sole discretion, in an emergency or to prevent injury or damage to persons or property.
Clouset may refuse to store any Stored Items, or may return to you any Stored Items, at your cost, at any time, if, in Clouset’s sole discretion, the storage, or continued storage, of the Stored Items would represent a risk to the safety of any person, the security of the storage site, or any other goods stored at the storage site.
By using the Storage Services or other paid services or products provided by Clouset, you agree to the pricing and payment terms, as we may update them from time to time. Clouset may add new services for additional fees and charges, or amend fees and charges for existing services, at any time in its sole discretion. Any change to our pricing or payment terms shall become effective in the billing cycle following notice of such change to you as provided in this Agreement.
All information that you provide in connection with a purchase or transaction or other monetary transaction interaction with the Site or Storage Services must be accurate, complete, and current. You agree to pay all charges incurred by users of your credit card, debit card, or other payment method used in connection with a purchase or transaction or other monetary transaction interaction with Clouset at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. You will pay any applicable taxes (including without limitation any applicable sales tax), if any, relating to any such purchases, transactions or other monetary transaction interactions. Any amounts not paid when due shall bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate allowed by law, whichever is less.
You may cancel your Clouset account at any time; however, there are no refunds for cancellation. In addition, Clouset requires minimum payment commitments, and you remain obligated to pay the full amount of any such minimum payment commitment you have made to Clouset, regardless of whether and at what point you cancel your Clouset account. In the event that Clouset suspends or terminates your account or this Agreement for your breach of this Agreement, you understand and agree that you shall receive no refund or exchange for any unused storage time, any license or subscription fees for any portion of the Site or Storage Services, any content or data associated with your account, or for anything else.
e. Clouset’s Right to Withhold or Dispose of Stored Items
Clouset shall have the right to withhold and ultimately dispose of some or all of the Stored Items in accordance with this clause if either: (i) you do not pay any applicable fees or any other payments due under this Agreement or (ii) you abandon your Stored Items, which will occur in the event your Clouset subscription terminates or expires and you fail to take possession of your Stored Items within 45 days from the termination or expiration date, despite Clouset’s or an applicable courier’s good faith attempts to return your Stored Items.
You will be responsible for all storage charges and other associated costs reasonably incurred by Clouset while withholding or disposing of the Stored Items. Clouset will provide you with 45 days’ written notice, written notice may be provided by email to the client’s email address on file, requiring you to pay all amounts due and contact Clouset to arrange for re-delivery of the Stored Items. If upon the expiration of the 45-day notice period you have failed to pay all of the amounts due, Clouset may dispose of some or all of the Stored Items by sale or otherwise.
If in Clouset’s opinion the Stored Items cannot be sold for a reasonable price or at all (for any reason), or despite Clouset’s reasonable efforts they remain unsold, you authorize Clouset to treat them as abandoned and to destroy or otherwise dispose of them at your cost. You shall be responsible for all costs reasonably incurred by Clouset in relation to the disposal of the Stored Items. If Clouset receives money on disposal of the Stored Items, the net proceeds of sale will be credited to your account and Clouset will pay any excess amounts to you without interest.
If, after having made reasonable efforts to do so, Clouset is unable to return any excess amounts received by Clouset from the disposal of your Stored Items to you, including having given not less than 90 days’ written notice to you, Clouset may retain any such excess amounts for its own account. If the proceeds of sale (if any) are insufficient to discharge the outstanding charges or any other payments due to Clouset under this Agreement and the costs of sale, you must pay any balance outstanding to Clouset within 7 days of a written demand from Clouset. Interest will accrue on the balance in accordance with the Payment Section above until the balance is paid in full.
f. Clouset’s Limited Security Warranty
Clouset agrees to provide you with a limited security warranty regarding your Stored Items as set forth in the terms and conditions of our Limited Security Warranty Policy. This Limited Security Warranty Policy is expressly incorporated by reference herein.
You may terminate this Agreement at any time by requesting the return of your Stored Items and by paying any outstanding fees due to Clouset. We may, without prior notice, change the Site or Storage Services; stop providing the Site or Storage Services or features of the Site or Storage Services, to you or to Users generally; or create usage limits for the Site or Storage Services. We may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the Site or Storage Services without notice and liability for any reason, including if in our sole determination you violate any provision of this Agreement, or for no reason. Upon termination for any reason or no reason, you continue to be bound by this Agreement.
Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason you must contact Clouset promptly to arrange for delivery of your Stored Items. If within 45 days following termination of this Agreement for any reason you fail to arrange for delivery of all of your Stored Items, then Clouset may process the Stored Items in accordance with the provisions of the section titled “Clouset’s Right to Withhold or Dispose of Stored Items” above.

FEDERAL LAW, SOME STATES, PROVINCES AND OTHER JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF CERTAIN IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
10. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL CLOUSET, ITS AFFILIATES, AGENTS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, THAT RESULT FROM THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THIS SITE OR STORAGE SERVICES.

You may not use the Site if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Site are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the United States.

In the event that Clouset ceases operations, we will attempt to make reasonable efforts to return your Stored Items to you, but cannot guarantee if and when such returns will occur. Clouset will not be liable for any failure to return Stored Items in the event of a business failure.
12. GOVERNING LAW, ARBITRATION, AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER
a. Governing Law
This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Texas, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. “” 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Stored Items is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Dallas, Texas for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below.
READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM CLOUSET. For any dispute with Clouset, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Clouset has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any Clouset claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, Inc. (“JAMS”), under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein.
If you are using the Site or obtaining the Storage Services for commercial purposes, the following applies:
The arbitration will be conducted in Dallas, Texas, unless you and Clouset agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Clouset from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to protect any of Clouset’s proprietary interests.
If you are using the Site or obtaining the Storage Services for noncommercial purposes, the following applies:
JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com and may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS. The arbitration will be conducted in Dallas, TX (or the nearest JAMS office), unless you request an in-person hearing in your hometown or you and Clouset agree otherwise. The award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the court as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of such party’s data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights. You may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process.
WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED THE SITE OR STORAGE SERVICES FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’s CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND CLOUSET ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Clouset without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
b. Force Majeure
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Clouset will not be liable or responsible for any damage to or loss of any Stored Items, or failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of its obligations under this Agreement, including without limitation any Storage Services, that is caused by events outside its reasonable control (including but not limited to) acts of God, flood, earthquake, windstorm or other natural disaster; war, armed conflict, terrorist attack, civil war, civil commotion or riots; nuclear, chemical or biological contamination or sonic boom; any law or government order, rule, regulation or direction, or any action taken by a government or public authority; fire, explosion or accidental damage; adverse weather conditions; interruption or failure of utility service, including but not limited to electric power, gas or water; any labor dispute, including but not limited to strikes, industrial action or lockouts; non-performance or delay by suppliers or subcontractors; and failure of plant machinery, machinery, vehicles, computers, the Internet or telecommunications (each, a “Force Majeure Event”).
c. Notification Procedures and Changes to the Agreement.
d. Entire Agreement/Severability
e. No Waiver
No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Clouset’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
