Lessor and Lessee together are the "Parties", and each, a "Party".

1.  Loaned Equipment. Loaned Equipment is loaned by Lessor to Lessee under these Terms and Conditions, and Lessee hereby accepts the Equipment according to these Terms and Conditions and all other terms as communicated by Lessor at the time Lessee agrees to accept the Loaned Equipment, or at the time of shipping the Loaned Equipment to Lessee. Lessor shall deliver to Lessee the Loaned Equipment as a loaner by Lessee to its customers ("Customers"). Lessor shall deliver the Loaned Equipment to Lessee's facility as communicated to Lessor by Lessee (the "Facility").

Following receipt of a Loaned Equipment Request submitted by Lessee from time to time pursuant to these Terms and Conditions, Lessor shall issue to Lessee a confirmation ("Equipment Confirmation") which shall be subject to these Term and Conditions, and other terms as set forth specifically at the time Lessee agrees to accept the Loaned Equipment.

3. Terms Prevail Over Lessee's Consignment Request. These Terms and Conditions as presented by Lessor prevail over any terms or conditions of Lessee contained in any other documentation and expressly exclude any of Lessee's general terms and conditions contained in any consignment request, purchase order, or other document issued by Lessee (collectively, "Consignment Request"), regardless of whether or when Lessee has submitted its Consignment Request or such terms.

Such identification and marking shall be attached to each unit of Loaned Equipment.

4.2    Lessee hereby represents and warrants that the Facility is appropriate for and conducive to the storage of equipment such as the Loaned Equipment and will permit the storage thereof free from hazards and damage of any nature whatsoever.

It shall be the responsibility of Lessee, however, to maintain the Facility throughout the period that Lessee has in its possession the Loaned Equipment in such manner so as to remain suitable for the storage of the Loaned Equipment, including maintenance of the insurance coverage described herein.
