Dormbox shall have the right to withhold and ultimately dispose of some or all of the Customer Items in accordance with this clause if either:
- you do not pay any applicable fees or any other payments due under this Agreement or
- you abandon your Customer Items, which will occur in the event your Dormbox subscription terminates or expires and you fail to take possession of your Customer Items within 45 days from the termination or expiration date, despite Dormbox’s or an applicable courier’s good faith attempts to return your Customer Items.
You will be responsible for all transport and storage charges and other associated costs reasonably incurred by Dormbox while withholding or disposing of the Customer Items. Dormbox will provide you with 45 days’ written notice requiring you to pay all amounts due and contact Dormbox to arrange for redelivery of the Customer Items. If upon the expiration of the 45-day notice period you have failed to pay all of the amounts due, Dormbox may dispose of some or all of the Customer Items by sale or otherwise. If in Dormbox’s opinion the Customer Items cannot be sold for a reasonable price or at all (for any reason), or despite Dormbox’s reasonable efforts they remain unsold, you authorize Dormbox 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 Dormbox in relation to the disposal of the Customer Items. If Dormbox receives money on disposal of the Customer Items, the net proceeds of sale will be credited to your account and Dormbox will pay any excess amounts to you without interest, less Dormbox’s administrative charge of $250.00.
If, after having made reasonable efforts to do so, Dormbox is unable to return any excess amounts received by Dormbox from the disposal of your Customer Items to you, including having given not less than 90 days’ written notice to you, Dormbox 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 Dormbox under this Agreement and the costs of sale, you must pay any balance outstanding to Dormbox within 7 days of a written demand from Dormbox. Interest will accrue on the balance in accordance with the Payment Section above until the balance is paid in full.

JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.co 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 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.
C. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
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 DORMBOX 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 Dormbox without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.

Dormbox Limited Security / Warranty Policy
Loss of or damage to your properly packed Stored Items that have been tampered with, lost or stolen while in Dormbox's possession, up to a total maximum of US $3,000 aggregate per User (the "Limited Security Warranty"); damage to your household caused by Dormbox’s negligence or willful misconduct will be reimbursed to the extent of actual damages or the limits of Dormbox’s insurance applicable to this agreement, whichever is less;
and/or damage to your properly stored items caused by Dormbox’s negligence or willful misconduct, up to a total maximum of US $3,000 in aggregate per User (together with (i) and (ii), also part of the Limited Security Warranty). In order to be eligible for reimbursement under (ii) or (iii), you must timely notify Dormbox of any applicable damage while Dormbox personnel remain present during or after the performance of services. Dormbox shall have the right to decrease or deny reimbursement to the extent that you or a third party's negligence or willful act contributed to the claimed damage.
Under no circumstances shall Dormbox have any liability, or any responsibility to reimburse you, for any damages to any Stored Items that Dormbox has not individually and specifically inspected, packed and sealed, including without limitation any items inside or in some way obscured by other items or packaging. Any such items are excluded from coverage. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Dormbox shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to inspect and determine the value of any damage to a Stored Item, household, or personal effects, the value of a lost Stored Item, and whether a damaged Stored Item, household, or personal effect is capable of being repaired. You may also purchase additional protection, such that your protection is the greater of the legal minimum price per pound or the amount of additional protection purchased. You may purchase additional protection of either $1,000 or $2,500, in each case in aggregate per User. Please visit www.Dormbox.co or contact us at [email protected] for more details, including current rates for additional protection, and/or to purchase additional protection. You are free later to cancel your protection plan. However, cancellation or failure to make payments each month means that your protection will revert to the default total maximum of US $3,000 in aggregate per User. Once you have selected your protection level, you cannot upgrade or change your protection level, except you may cancel your additional protection at any time.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, but subject to the terms, limitations, exclusions, and conditions of this Limited Security Warranty Policy and the Agreement, and solely to the extent covered by Dormbox’s insurance policy, if you created a Dormbox account prior to August 10, 2016, then Dormbox will reimburse you for loss of or damage to your Stored Items properly packed in Storage Boxes that have been tampered with, lost or stolen while in Dormbox’s possession, up to a total maximum of US $1,000.00 in aggregate per User (the “Prior Limited Security Warranty”). Customers who created Dormbox accounts prior to August 10, 2016 are not eligible to purchase additional protection.
If you purchase additional coverage and then at any point reach your maximum total claim amount, Dormbox will immediately cancel any later scheduled monthly protection plan payments from you and default your Limited Security Warranty coverage down to a total maximum of US $1.00 per pound in aggregate.
In order to be eligible for either Limited Security Warranty, you must:
- have photographs of your Stored Items (in order to allow us to confirm the pre-packing condition of the Stored Items);
- pack your Stored Items into boxes (“Storage Boxes”);
- promptly examine your Storage Box and Stored Items when Dormbox returns your Storage Boxes to you, and
- immediately notify the Dormbox representative who return-delivered your Storage Box in writing of any loss of or damage to your Stored Items at the time of delivery within five (5) days of delivery;
- and (v) read and agree to abide by the terms of the Dormbox Damage Claim Form (subsections (i) through (v) of this paragraph, collectively, the “Warranty Requirements”). The Dormbox Damage Claim Form for customers with a maximum coverage of US $3,000 in aggregate per User is available here. The Damage Claim Forms for customers who purchased $1,000 or $2,500 of additional protection is available at here or here respectively. For clarity, this Dormbox Limited Security Warranty Policy shall not apply to any Stored Items shipped directly by you or on your behalf to Dormbox.
Upon receiving notice of lost or damaged Stored Items, Dormbox will investigate the cause of loss or damage. If Dormbox determines, in its sole discretion, that the loss or damage was due to unauthorized tampering with or access to the Stored Items contained within your Storage Box, Dormbox will pay to you either(i) the cost of repair of the damaged Stored Items (up to the aggregate per-user limit expressly set forth herein and selected by you), or
(ii) the current replacement fair market value of the lost or damaged Stored Items (up to the aggregate per-user limit expressly set forth herein and selected by you), whichever is less. Dormbox shall be entitled to require proof of the initial purchase price, repair cost, and/or replacement value, and/or fair market value of any damaged or stolen Stored Items.
You agree that Dormbox shall have no liability for any loss of or damage to any Stored Items if you breach or have breached any provision of the Agreement, or if you fail or have failed to comply with any of the Warranty Requirements above, including without limitation, any failure to have photographs taken of any missing or damaged Stored Items prior to packing the Stored Items or failure to notify Dormbox of any or lost or damaged Stored Items immediately upon delivery. The Limited Security Warranty is not insurance and should not be considered a replacement or stand-in for any kind of insurance. We strongly encourage you to purchase insurance for all of your Stored Items.
The Limited Security Warranty does not apply to, and Dormbox shall not in any event be liable for, any loss or damage that falls into the following categories:
- loss or damage to the Stored Items which does not arise as a direct consequence of any breach of this Agreement by Dormbox or any deliberate or grossly negligent act or omission on the part of Dormbox or its contractors;
- loss of or damage to any Prohibited Stored Items (as defined in the Agreement);
- loss or damage to composite wood items, such as pressboard, particle board or ready-to-assemble furniture;
- loss or damage to the internal workings of electronic items;
- missing hardware for items Dormbox did not disassemble;
- loss or damage to items that were previously damaged or repaired;
- loss of business, sales, revenue, profits or anticipated savings;
- loss or damage which was not reasonably foreseeable at the date of entering into this Agreement, regardless as to how such loss or damage was caused;
- loss or damage due to emotional distress; or
- consequential damages of any character; or
- loss of or damage to Stored Items in connection with any Force Majeure Event (as defined in the Agreement).
You acknowledge and agree that the Limited Security Warranty set forth herein shall be your sole and exclusive remedy and Dormbox’s total liability to you in connection with any lost, stolen, or damaged Stored Items.
