Water Damage Protection insurance for book rentals priced between $1.00 – $49.99
The insurance, or "Water Damage Protection," is optional and varies with the Rental price of the book. The insurance, if purchased, will protect the buyer from a forced purchase for a “Water Damaged” book. “Water Damage” is any liquid falling onto any part of the book. The book must remain whole and intact, otherwise it will be considered “Unusable.” “Unusable” means the book would not be functional for another person (i.e. missing or illegible pages). The book must be considered “Usable” by the Pasadena Bookmart.
Torn Pages, missing pages, and/or pages covered in excessive writing are not covered. Excessive writing prohibits the readability of the print on the pages of the book.
Lost or stolen books are not covered. The same book must be returned to the Pasadena Bookmart. If lost or stolen, the buyer would still owe the balance as per the rental contract.
If a book is returned late, the insurance will cover the only the Late Fee.
The insurance must be purchased at the same time as the corresponding book rental.
