I bear full responsibility for the return of the rented materials in saleable condition and for payment of fees and new book replacement costs if rented materials are lost, stolen or returned in unsaleable condition. Unsaleable condition includes damages incurred to the rented material as determined by Texan Campus Store staff, including but not limited to torn covers, torn pages, liquid damage, stains.
