Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Proximie Enterprise Standard Terms and Conditions, You agree to rent the Teladoc equipment and other property described in this agreement (collectively “Equipment“) on the terms and conditions shown in this section of this Agreement (“Rental Agreement“). We will arrange for the delivery of the Equipment to You. The Equipment will be deemed accepted by You on the date all or a portion of the Equipment has arrived at Your relevant facility, as confirmed by Our shipment certificate (the “Commencement Date”), and the rental term will start on the date the Equipment arrives at Your relevant facility, as confirmed by Our shipment certificate and will continue until the relevant Customer subscription term has ended (“Rental Term” or “Term”). You will be responsible for all Equipment shipping costs under the Rental Agreement.
2. WARRANTIES. Teladoc warrants that the Equipment will be free from defects in materials and workmanship, under normal use and service from the date the Equipment is shipped by Teladoc to Customer (the “Standard Equipment Warranty”) through the expiration of the Rental Term. Teladoc’s sole obligation under this express warranty shall be, at Teladoc’s option and expense: (i) to repair the defective Equipment or part; (ii) to deliver to Customer an equivalent unit of Equipment or part to replace the defective item.
3. EQUIPMENT LOCATION; USE AND REPAIR; RETURN. You will keep and use the Equipment only at the Equipment location indicated in the Agreement and/or as otherwise agreed by the Parties (“Location”). You may not move the Equipment to another location without Our prior written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld. At Your expense, You will keep the Equipment eligible for any manufacturer’s certification, in compliance with all applicable laws and in good condition, except for ordinary wear and tear. You will not make any alterations, additions or replacements to the Equipment without Our prior written consent. All alterations, additions and replacements will become part of the Equipment and Our property at no expense to Us. Following expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement, You will cooperate with Teladoc’s efforts to coordinate delivery of the Equipment back to Teladoc in good condition and repair, except for ordinary wear and tear, to any place in the United States that Teladoc designates and upon Teladoc’s request. It is solely Your duty to remove all sensitive or confidential data stored within the Equipment prior to returning it. You will pay all expenses of uninstalling, crating and shipping and insure the Equipment for its full replacement value during shipping. You agree that You will not take the Equipment out of service and have a third party pay or provide funds to pay the amounts due hereunder.
4. TAXES AND FEES. You will pay all excise taxes, sales and use taxes, and all other taxes and charges which may be imposed during the term of this Rental Agreement, arising from the use, acquisition, ownership or leasing of the Equipment, whether due before or after termination of this Rental Agreement. With the exception of property tax, You will reimburse Us for Our administrative costs and fees associated with the preparation, filing, payment, and other costs of administering taxes associated with the Equipment.
5. LOSS OR DAMAGE. As between You and Us, You are responsible for any loss, theft or destruction of, or damage to, the Equipment (collectively “Loss“) from any cause at all except to the extent caused by Teladoc or due to Our breach of any term of any applicable agreement between You and Us, whether or not insured, until it is removed from Your premises in accordance with and at the end of this Rental Agreement. You are required to make all payments relevant to Equipment hereunder even if there is a Loss. You must notify Us in writing immediately of any Loss. Then, at Our option, You will either (a) repair the Equipment so that it is in good condition and working order, eligible for any manufacturer’s certification, or (b) pay Us the amounts specified in Section 9(b) below.
6. INSURANCE. You will provide and maintain at Your expense (a) property insurance against the loss, theft or destruction of, or damage to, the Equipment for its full replacement value, and (b) public liability and third party property insurance covering the Equipment. You will give Us certificates or other evidence of such insurance when reasonably requested. Such insurance will be in a form, amount and with companies of reputable and reasonable standards in the industry. IF YOU DO NOT GIVE US EVIDENCE OF INSURANCE ACCEPTABLE TO US UPON REQUEST HEREUNDER, WE HAVE THE RIGHT, BUT NOT THE OBLIGATION, TO OBTAIN INSURANCE COVERING OUR INTERESTS FOR THE TERM OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING ANY RENEWAL OREXTENSIONS. WE MAY ADD THE COSTS OF ACQUIRING AND MAINTAINING SUCH INSURANCE, AND OUR FEES FOR OUR SERVICES IN PLACING AND MAINTAINING SUCH INSURANCE (COLLECTIVELY, “INSURANCE CHARGE”), ON WHICH WE MAY EARN A PROFIT, TO THE AMOUNTS DUE FROM YOU UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. Such insurance may duplicate coverage provided under Your existing policy. If applicable, You will pay the Insurance Charge in equal instalments allocated to the remaining Payments. Nothing in this Rental Agreement will create an insurance relationship of any type between Us and any other person.
7. TITLE; RECORDING. As between the Parties, We are the owner of and will hold title to the Equipment. You will keep the Equipment free of all liens and encumbrances.

Each of the following is a “Default” under this Rental Agreement: (a) You materially do not perform any of Your obligations under this Rental Agreement and this failure continues for 30 days from Our notice to You; or (c) You become insolvent, You dissolve or are dissolved, or You assign Your assets for the benefit of Your creditors, or enter any bankruptcy proceeding.
9. REMEDIES. If a Default occurs, We may do one or more of the following: (a) We may cancel or terminate all or part of this Agreement; (b) We may require You to immediately pay Us, as compensation for loss of Our bargain and not as a penalty, a sum equal to (i) the present value of all unpaid Payments for the remainder of the Term plus the Equipment’s anticipated residual value discounted at 3% per annum, if applicable, plus (ii) all other amounts due or that become due under this Rental Agreement; (c) We may require You to deliver the Equipment to Us as per Our reasonable instructions and terminate use of any software component of the Equipment; (d) We or Our agent may peacefully repossess the Equipment without court order and You will not make any claims against Us for damages or trespass or any other reason; and (e) We may exercise any other right or remedy available at law or in equity. You agree to pay all of Our reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees associated with enforcing Our rights and pursuing Our remedies against You under this Rental Agreement. If We take possession of the Equipment, We may sell or otherwise dispose of it with or without notice, at a public or private sale, and apply the net proceeds (after We have deducted all costs related to the repossession, sale or disposition of the Equipment) to the amounts that You owe Us. You will remain responsible for any amounts that are due after We have applied such net proceeds.
10. End of Life. We have the unilateral right to determine if the Equipment has reached its reasonable end of life (“EOL”). We will provide reasonable advanced written notice if it has determined that any Equipment will reach its EOL, including the EOL date and will replace such Equipment upon reasonable notice. We shall cooperate and facilitate the replacement of such Equipment. Notwithstanding anything else in this Agreement, We will not be required to continue supporting any Equipment that has reached EOL to the extent the Customer has refused or prevented the replacement of such Equipment in accordance with this provision.
11. ASSIGNMENT. YOU MAY NOT ASSIGN, SELL, TRANSFER OR SUBRENT THE EQUIPMENT OR YOUR INTEREST IN THIS AGREEMENT, EXCEPT TO END CUSTOMERS UNDER THE TERMS OF THE AGREEMENT.
12. MISCELLANEOUS.
