obstructions to the satellite signal. Satellite communication mode is not suitable for indoor use unless an external

antenna option is utilized. A quick user’s guide will be provided with every rental.

LOSS PROTECTION: Loss protection is optional, and protects the renter from full replacement value charges in the event of lost, stolen or damaged equipment. If the equipment is lost, stolen, or damaged, an amount equal to the deductible will be charged to the credit card on file unless other arrangements are made. If the renter declines the loss protection, the renter agrees to pay the full replacement value of all equipment lost, stolen, or damaged at current market value. The renter remains liable for all airtime charges until the equipment is reported to a GIT Satellite representative as lost or stolen.

RETURN OF EQUIPMENT: GIT Satellite will provide, as part of shipping costs, a second day return label. Renter agrees to ship equipment no later than 2 business days after contracted rental period. Renter understands that failure to do so will result in an additional week’s rental being billed to the credit card number on file until the rental equipment is returned.
