Third Party Content and Interactions
The Site and Services may contain features and functionalities that may link you or provide you with access to third party content which is completely independent of Generation Tux, including websites, directories, servers, networks, systems, information and databases, applications, software, programs, products or services, and the Internet in general. Your interactions with organizations or individuals found on or through the Site and Services are solely between you and such organizations or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any interaction with any of these third parties. You agree that Generation Tux is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any kind or nature incurred as the result of any such dealings. If there is a dispute between users of the Site or Services, or between users and any third party, you understand and agree that Generation Tux is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have a dispute with any other user of the Site or Services, you hereby release Generation Tux and its affiliates, and their officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind or nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes or the Site and Services. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH PROVIDES: A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.

Except where noted otherwise, the prices displayed for the Services do not include any applicable sales tax that we may be required to collect from you.
All rentals are also subject to our Rental Terms below.

We attempt to be as accurate as possible. However, we do not warrant that product or service images or descriptions or other content displayed on the Site or Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.
Changes to the Site or Services
Generation Tux enhances and updates the Site and Services often. We may change or discontinue the Site or any Services at any time, with or without further notice to you.

Disclaimer and Limitations on Our Liability
YOU USE THE SITE AND SERVICES AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE SITE AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, GENERATION TUX AND ITS OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, SHAREHOLDERS, PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, AND LICENSORS (REFERRED TO COLLECTIVELY AS “AFFILIATES”) DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE SITE AND SERVICES (INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE OR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT).
IN PARTICULAR, GENERATION TUX AND ITS AFFILIATES MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES (INCLUDING ANY RECOMMENDATIONS OR OTHER CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES), OR THE CONTENT OF ANY WEBSITES OR RESOURCES LINKED TO THE SITE OR SERVICES. GENERATION TUX AND ITS AFFILIATES WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY: (a) ERRORS, MISTAKES, OR INACCURACIES OF CONTENT; (b) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES; (c) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SERVERS OR OF ANY PERSONAL OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION; (d) ANY INTERRUPTION OF TRANSMISSION TO OR FROM THE SITE OR SERVICES; (e) ANY COMPUTER VIRUSES OR MALICIOUS CODE THAT MAY BE TRANSMITTED ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES; OR (f) ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF ANY FUNCTIONALITY OR CONTENT POSTED, E-MAILED, TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES.
GENERATION TUX AND ITS AFFILIATES DO NOT WARRANT, ENDORSE, GUARANTEE, OR ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY THIRD PARTY PRODUCT OR SERVICE RECOMMENDED, ADVERTISED, OR OFFERED ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES OR ANY LINKED WEBSITE.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT ANY MATERIAL OR INFORMATION DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES IS DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND THAT YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE ARISING FROM DOING SO. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM GENERATION TUX OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE IN THESE TERMS.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, NEITHER GENERATION TUX NOR ITS AFFILIATES WILL BE LIABLE UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF REVENUES, PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF SUCH PARTIES WERE ADVISED OF, KNEW OF, OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THE SITE OR SERVICES OR THESE TERMS.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF GENERATION TUX AND ITS AFFILIATES FOR ANY CLAIMS UNDER THESE TERMS IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US TO USE THE SERVICES GIVING RISE TO SUCH CLAIMS.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you. To the extent Generation Tux may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit its liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of Generation Tux’s liability will be the minimum permitted under such law.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Generation Tux and its Affiliates harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, expenses, and fees of any kind (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and legal costs), arising from or relating to: (a) any information (including your User Content or any other content) that you or anyone using your account submit, post, or transmit on or through the Site or Services; (b) the use of the Site or Services by you or anyone using your account; (c) the violation of these Terms by you or anyone using your account; or (d) the violation of any rights of any third party, including intellectual property, privacy, publicity, or other proprietary rights by you or anyone using your account. Generation Tux reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you. If we do assume the defense of such a matter, you will reasonably cooperate with Generation Tux in such defense.
Under no circumstances will Generation Tux be held liable for any delay or failure in performance due in whole or in part to any acts of nature or other causes beyond its reasonable control.
These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any conflict of laws rules or provisions.
You agree that any action of whatever nature arising from or relating to these Terms, the Site, or any Services will be filed only in the state or federal courts located in San Francisco County, California. You consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of any such action.
If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining provisions.
The failure of Generation Tux to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not prevent Generation Tux from enforcing such right or provision in the future.
You may not assign these Terms to anyone without our prior written consent. However, you agree that we may assign these Terms to an Affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, a sale of assets, or by operation of law, without your consent.
Changes to these Terms
We may change these Terms from time to time. If we change these Terms, we will inform you by posting the revised Terms on the Site. Those changes will go into effect on the “Revised” date shown in the revised Terms. By continuing to use the Site or Services, you are agreeing to the revised Terms.
Revised: March 24, 2020
These Rental Terms govern your rentals from Generation Tux, Inc. (“Generation Tux” “we” “our” “us”). By renting from us, you are agreeing to these Rental Terms. Please read them carefully.
Placing Your Rental Order
You can rent an item on your own or as part of an event. If you rent an item on your own, you will still need to create an event for your rental. You must create an account to place an order or to create an event. If you are renting as part of an event, the event creator will pre-select all items to be rented and you will receive an e-mail invitation to place your order. To complete your order, you must provide your sizing and measurement information and any other information, such as event date and payment information, as requested by Generation Tux. If you are renting items pre-selected by an event creator, you may not delete or change any items in the order, but you may order additional items.
To complete your order, you must enter your measurements. You can either measure with a friend using a tailor’s tape (we’ll send you one for free) and our simple tutorial videos. Valid only for customers who have arrived at this page from an invitation from Generation Tux. Non-transferrable. Offer valid while supplies last. We reserve the right to refuse fulfillment on complimentary tape measure requests that we believe are not from a Generation Tux invitation.
Orders completed less than 16 days (21 days for AK, HI) prior to an event will be subject to rush shipping and processing. You must complete your order—including providing your measurements and payment—before the 16th day (21st day for HI and AK) deadline in order to avoid the rush shipping and processing. If you need to make any changes to your order within 16 days of your event, please do so by contacting the Concierge Services group as the event will be closed to changes online.
Payment for all rentals is due in full upon placing an order. Payment in full is required to finalize an order. By submitting your payment information to us, you authorize Generation Tux to charge your payment card, or other payment method associated with your account, for all rental fees and any other fees incurred as described in these Rental Terms or at the time of placing your order within a reasonable time after placing your order. When the event creator creates a new event, he or she will select to pay for the rentals or for the participants to pay. Unless the event creator selects the option to pay for your rental items, you are responsible for making all payments.
Receiving Your Rental Items
All rental items will be received by you about 14 days before your event date. You should try on your items as soon as you receive them. If any item does not fit, please contact us within 48 hours of package receipt. If you contact us 48 hours after receipt and we need to re-ship items, a rush shipping charge may apply.
Subject to availability, we may send you a different size to arrive prior to your event date or otherwise help you resolve any issues with your items in our discretion.
Returning Your Rental Items
After your event, simply place all of your rental items in the prepaid return bag we included with your order and drop it off at your nearest UPS Store location. You must deposit your returned rental with the shipper no later than 3 days after the event date you or the event creator supplied to Generation Tux. Returned items dated any later will be subject to a late fee. Any items that are returned damaged or that are not returned to Generation Tux within 21 days of your event date (without making arrangements for a later return and paying any additional applicable fees) will be subject to the applicable replacement and processing fees. You will not receive any refund or other payment after returning your items. You do not need to clean your items prior to returning them.
In addition to the cost of your rental, the following fees may also apply as detailed in these Rental Terms. In the event you incur any additional fees, your payment card or account will automatically be charged. Generation Tux reserves the right to change any of these fees at any time without further notice.

Cancelling or Changing Your Order
You may cancel your order and receive a full refund of the rental fee up to 3 weeks (21 days) prior to your event date. Any other changes to your order (subject to availability) must also be received at least 3 weeks (21 days) prior to your event date. If your order has shipped, a credit will be issued if the unused garments are returned to UPS prior to the event date. If you need to make any changes to your order within 3 weeks (21 days) of your event date, please do so by contacting us as the event will be closed to changes online. Please note, if you have not cancelled your order within 3 weeks (21 days) of your event date there will be a $40 shipping and restocking fee.
