Student Laptop Loan Agreement

I agree that I am responsible for returning this laptop on time in the same condition as when I borrowed it. I understand that:

  1. If, after an ITS staff inspection, it is determined that I damaged the laptop screen, hardware and/or casing, I will be charged repair or replacement costs.
  2. If after an ITS staff inspection, it is determined that I did not return all cables or accessories, I will be charged replacement costs
  3. If I tamper with the equipment, I will be charged to repair or replace the laptop and any cables or accessories and may also be subject to disciplinary action.
  4. If I fail to return the laptop on time, to the same location from which I borrowed it, I will be fined $20 for the first 30 minutes and $20 for each successive 30 minutes after the due time, up to the total cost of a replacement laptop.
  5. ITS is not responsible for damage to data caused by viruses that may exist on the network or are spread through the network or from software malfunctions.
  6. ITS is not responsible for damage to external drives or any other devices plugged into the laptop.
  7. I cannot save files on the laptop’s hard drive and must save my files by copying them to another location (for example a USB flash drive). All files left on the laptop will be erased. ITS accepts no responsibility for lost files.
  8. I agree to abide by USC’s Computing Policies: http://www.usc.edu/its/policies.

I understand that by borrowing this laptop, I am responsible for its return. I agree never to leave the laptop unattended or in someone else’s care. If the laptop is stolen while on loan to me, I am responsible for the entire replacement cost of the equipment.

I agree to all above conditions
