The RenaissanceAndAction service allows users to order package delivery in select cities as identified on the Website (the “Service”). You can use the Service a personal mobile device if you have downloaded the App. As used in this Agreement, "Customer" means a registered user who posts a request for courier services, "Courier" means an independent contractor who is a registered user who submits a bid to provide courier services for a request posted by a Customer. RenaissanceAndAction provides the Services as a method to obtain such third party Couriers, but RenaissanceAndAction is not a carrier or provider of courier services. It is up to the Courier to offer courier services which may be scheduled through use of the Site. For avoidance of doubt, RenaissanceAndAction does not provide delivery services directly and it will not be liable for the actions or omissions of any third-party independent courier contractors that provide delivery services through the Service including without limitation for any issues related to damage or timely delivery.
By placing an order with us you warrant that you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts and are at least 18 years old.

You acknowledge that opting out of receiving text (SMS) messages may impact your use of the Services.
3. Nature of Services.
3.1 For the avoidance of doubt, RenaissanceAndAction is not a Broker, Freight Forwarder, Motor Carrier or Shipper as such terms may be defined in rules or regulations issued by the Transport Canada or in any other similar rules or regulations or by any other governmental body.
RenaissanceAndAction shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide its technology platform to enable You to access the Services. RenaissanceAndAction may change or discontinue the Services at any time without notice, but any change shall only apply to You prospectively after the effective date of the change.
3.2 If the delivery address provided cannot be found at the time of delivery RenaissanceAndAction will attempt to contact both the Customer (or an authorized representative of the Customer), and the recipient for instructions. If, after reasonable attempts, the Courier is unable to complete the delivery, RenaissanceAndAction will arrange for the return of the Merchandise to the Customer. Re-routing and any re-delivery attempts will result in additional Customer fees.
3.3 RenaissanceAndAction will attempt to complete delivery to the address provided by the Customer at the time of order submission. It is the Customer’s sole responsibility to provide RenaissanceAndAction with the correct destination address for the intended recipient, and Customer hereby agrees that RenaissanceAndAction is not responsible for any loss, damage or other liability caused by delivery of the Merchandise to the address provided. Additional charges may be incurred for any delays due to incorrect shipping information.
3.4 RenaissanceAndAction may change the fees for our Services as we deem necessary for our business. RenaissanceAndAction encourages you to check our Site periodically if you are interested in learning more about how RenaissanceAndAction charges for the Services.
3.5 You agree to comply with all applicable laws when using the Services, and you may only use the Services for lawful purposes (e.g., no transport of unlawful or hazardous materials). You will not in your use of the Services cause nuisance, annoyance, inconvenience, or property damage, whether to the Courier or any other party. In certain instances you may be asked to provide proof of identity to access or use the Services, and you agree that you may be denied access to or use of the Services if you refuse to provide proof of identity.
4.1 Packaging and marking. (a) Customer agrees to comply with all applicable city, province and federal laws governing packing, packaging, marking and labelling of Merchandise for all shipments. (b) All Merchandise must be prepared and packed for safe transportation in compliance with applicable laws and for handling in an express transportation environment. Merchandise susceptible to damage as a result of conditions that may be encountered during transit such as changes in temperature or atmospheric pressure, or adverse pavement/road conditions must be adequately protected by proper packaging. Each shipment must be accompanied by a legible and durably marked description of the nature and quantity of the Merchandise, and the name, address and postal code of the recipient. (c) RenaissanceAndAction’s pricing is based on two Merchandise packages that are less than 15 pounds each, no more than 40”L x 24”W and 12”H of each package and can fit easily in a passenger car, van or SUV. Merchandise that requires special handling due to their cubic volume, shape, size, or weight over 30 pounds combined will require additional coordination and may be subject to additional terms and conditions including fees. (d) If Merchandise leaks, or is damaged due to inadequate packaging, the shipment will be returned to the Customer pickup point, if possible. If the Merchandise cannot be returned because of leakage or damage due to faulty packaging, Customer is responsible for, and will reimburse RenaissanceAndAction for, all costs and fees of any type incurred in connection with the storage and/or disposal of the Merchandise and the clean-up and remediation of any spill or leakage.
4.2 Refusal or Rejection of Merchandise. RenaissanceAndAction reserves the right, in its sole but reasonable discretion, to refuse, hold or return any Merchandise and may do so without liability. By way of example and not limitation, RenaissanceAndAction may exercise this right if the Merchandise: (a) may cause damage or delay to other shipments, property or personnel; (b) is likely to sustain damage or loss in transit because of improper packaging or otherwise; (c) appears to be damaged upon pickup at Customer’s site; (d) contains any prohibited items; or (e) may jeopardize RenaissanceAndAction’s ability to provide service to other customers. Customer acknowledges and agrees that RenaissanceAndAction has no liability whatsoever for refusal or rejection of Merchandise, so long as RenaissanceAndAction’s refusal or rejection is in good faith.
4.3 Perishables. RenaissanceAndAction does not provide refrigerated shipping vehicles and will not be liable for Merchandise that could be damaged by exposure to ordinary fluctuations in temperature.

5. Processing Orders
Once you submit an Delivery and your payment has been authorized (cash, or credit card), your Delivery will be assigned to the Courier. Once you have submitted your Delivery and your payment has been authorized, you WILL NOT be entitled to change your delivery and you WILL NOT be entitled to a refund (except where prohibited by law). You are responsible to ensure that all of your delivery details, billing, address, and other relevant personal information is current, complete, and accurate. Please note that any confirmation page that you may see on the Website and any Delivery confirmation that you may receive each merely indicate that your Delivery has been received and is being processed by us, and does not necessarily mean that your Delivery has been accepted by the independent contractor. We encourage all our independent contractor to accept all Delivery and to communicate any rejection promptly, and we will notify you as soon as reasonably practicable. However, independent contractors have the discretion to reject Delivery at any time because they are too busy, due to weather conditions or for any other reason. Because of standard banking procedures, once you have submitted an Delivery that you are paying for by credit card and your payment has been authorized, your bank or card issuer will charge the full amount of your Delivery. If your Delivery is subsequently rejected by the independent contractor or cancelled for any other reason, your bank or card issuer will not transfer the funds for the Delivery to us, and will instead release the relevant amount back into your available balance. However, this may take a period of typically up to 5 working days (and in some cases up to 30 days, depending on your bank or card issuer). You acknowledge and agree that neither we nor the relevant independent contractors will be responsible or liable to you in relation to this delay by your bank or card issuer in the release of funds back into your account.
