Each time you borrow a carrier, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless BWI of the Merrimack Valley, its leaders and members, for any harm that may result to you or your child from the use of the carrier. 2. Do not expose a carrier to tobacco smoke or tobacco smoke residue. Do not use a carrier where people are smoking, and do not store a carrier in a place where there is tobacco smoke residue, such as in a car where someone smokes. 3. Checkout is for one month only. If you cannot return the item at the next month’s meeting, please return it to a leader in person before the meeting. You must bring it to a leader, leaders are not responsible for coming to you. If you chose to have a third party return it to the leaders, please arrange that. Leaders will not be responsible for third party returns.

4. Late carriers are subject to a late fee of $5.00 per day. Your entire deposit will be cashed and balance will be returned to you after you return the carrier in good condition. Membership privileges are also suspended until all late fees are paid. 5. Please return all carriers in such a condition that they are ready for the next person to check out. This means the carrier should be reasonably clean and neatly folded. This does not mean you necessarily have to wash the carrier. If it is not dirty, you do not have to wash it. If it is dirty, please contact us at email@example.com
prior to washing for further instruction. 6. Please treat the carriers with respect. If you ruin a carrier, you are responsible for paying the actual replacement cost of the carrier,at new retail value, including shipping. Using fabric softener or bleach on a carrier will be considered ruined. The leaders in their sole discretion will determine whether a carrier is ruined. If a carrier is damaged, and can be repaired, you will be charged for repairs necessary. Please never try to repair damage you have done to a carrier. 7. Violation of these policies may result in termination of a member’s borrowing privileges.
