You are responsible for paying repair or replacement fees associated with any loss or theft of, or damages to, the equipment while the equipment is at the delivery location to the extent that the damage is not covered by Accidental Damage Coverage or Theft Coverage if you have purchased either coverage option. Equipment must be returned to Meeting Tomorrow in its original state and usable by Meeting Tomorrow. You are responsible to either help resolve the issue or pay for a full replacement of the equipment if the equipment is returned not in its original state. This also applies to equipment returned to Meeting Tomorrow with its software in an unusable state (e.g. with Apple iCloud Activation Lock or Jailbroken).
