Textbook Rental Agreement

Agreement Terms and Conditions

This End User Agreement (this "Agreement") is a contract between you and St. Lawrence University and applies to your use of Nebraska Book Company products and services (collectively the "Service"). This Agreement sets forth your rights and obligations and should be read carefully. In this Agreement, “I”, "you" or "your" means any person or entity using the Service ("Users"). Unless otherwise stated, "The University," the "Brewer Bookstore," “Bookstore”, "we" or "our" will refer collectively to St. Lawrence University. By clicking "I Agree", "I Accept" or by using the Website you agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, our privacy policy, our terms of use, the receipt, and any other documents incorporated into the website. You agree that this User Agreement is legally binding between you and “The University”. “The University” may modify this Agreement from time to time and such modification shall be effective upon posting by “The University” on the Website. You agree to be bound to any changes to this Agreement when you use the Website or the Service after any such modification is posted. It is therefore important that you review this Agreement regularly to ensure you are aware of any changes.

1.    I am at least 18 years of age or the age of majority in the state in which I am conducting this transaction.

2.    I am entering this Textbook Rental Agreement ("Agreement") with St. Lawrence University (“The University”) of my own free will. I will return the Rented Materials to the St. Lawrence University Brewer Bookstore.

3.    I will pay for the materials as specified at the time of order. If I decide to buy any rented book at any time after the standard refund policy and before the check-in date, I will pay the difference in the rental fee and the purchase price (based off of purchased condition) as outlined on the transaction receipt provided to me. The charge will be applied to the credit or debit card which is on file.

4.    Failure to Return. “The University” is not responsible for reminding me of the Rental Return Date. If I fail to return the Rented Materials by Rental Return Due Date (either in store or post-marked by the check- in date), or if I return them in damaged or unsalable condition, my patron rental account may become suspended and I will incur charges. I authorize the “The University” to charge “Non-return Charges and processing Fees” which consists of the replacement cost of the rental plus applicable fees as identified on my transaction receipt to my credit card or debit card on file. All books returned to “The University” become “The University” property and will be processed and disposed of at  “The University” discretion.

  • Failure to return a rental: A non-return fee and a late fee will be charged to the credit card on file for any books not returned within a week of the deadline. The non-return fee is the retail price (new or used) of the book (depending on the rented/original condition) minus the already paid rental fee, plus a late fee of 20% of the list/retail price.


  • Late Fees: rentals may still be returned within one week of the deadline, but will be assessed a late fee equal to 20% of the list (retail) price.

5.    Conditions upon Return. Highlighting and writing in rented textbooks is permitted and acceptable. However, Rental Materials must be returned in complete and salable condition. This means the spine of the book is intact, there is no damage to the book, and all component parts of the book must be present. I am responsible for any loss or theft of the Rented Materials. If the rental is deemed damaged, reported lost or stolen, I am responsible for the replacement cost of the rental plus applicable fees.

6.    Credit Card as Security. I will not cancel or exceed the purchasing limits of the credit or debit card above until the rented textbooks are either returned to “The University” or the Non-return Fees are paid. If the credit or debit card is declined the patron account will be suspended and sent to a Third Party Collection Agency. I will be responsible for paying all Collection Fees assessed by the Third Party Collection Agency. “The University” will make reasonable efforts to process transactions in a timely manner. I agree not to hold “The University” responsible in the event “The University” does not credit or debit my credit or debit card for a period of time due to circumstances beyond its control. “The University” makes no guarantees regarding the processing time for charges.

I agree, in order for “The University” to service my account or to collect any amount I may owe, unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law, “The University” or a designated Third Party Collection Agency are authorized to (i) contact me by telephone at the telephone number(s) in the patron contact account information I am providing, including wireless telephone numbers, which could result in charges to me, (ii) contact me by sending text messages (message and data rates may apply) or emails, using any email address I provide and/or (iii) methods of contact may include using pre-recorded/artificial voice message and/or use of an automatic dialing device, as applicable.

I have read this disclosure and agree that the Lender/Creditor may contact me as described above.

7.    Refund. The Brewer Bookstore’s standard refund policies apply.

8.    Tax. Normal Tax rates will apply, and vary depending on State.
