CHL may, prior to the hire of the Equipment, require the Hirer to pay such deposit as is considered appropriate by CHL as notified to the Hirer at the time the Equipment is ordered (“Deposit”) and/or require the Hirer to provide details of a valid credit or debit card as a Deposit. The Deposit shall be a deposit against default by the Hirer of payment of any Charges or any loss of or damage caused to the Equipment including any Replacement Cost and shall not act as a limitation of the Hirer’s liability in respect of unpaid Charges, Additional Charges, damage or loss to the Equipment or any Replacement Cost.
If the Hirer fails without due cause to make any payment of the Charges or any Replacement Cost or causes any loss or damage to the Equipment (in whole or in part), CHL shall be entitled to apply the Deposit or such further sums as are necessary against such default, loss, Replacement Cost or damage either by deduction from the Deposit sum and/or deduction of such further sums as are necessary from the credit or debit card (as applicable). Any Deposit sum (or balance thereof) shall be refundable at the end of the Hire Period.
