5.5.2. Coverage Fee. Sherpo will not charge a fee for basic coverage, which covers Users in case of loss, theft, or damage to their Item in relation to the Storage Service, for up to €50 (or $50 in the US, £50 in the UK, or any other applicable currency). For additional coverage, you can pay a fee to obtain Sherpo Coverage. More information about the coverage and Sherpo Coverage is available in SECTION 6 of these Terms.
5.5.3. Subscription Fee. If you activate a subscription, you agree to be periodically charged a Subscription fee on an ongoing basis. The “Subscription Billing Date” is the date when you purchase the first subscription to the applicable subscription service. Your account will be automatically charged on the Subscription Billing Date for all applicable fees for the next subscription period. Your subscription will continue unless and until you cancel it or if we terminate this agreement in accordance with SECTION 14. You must cancel your subscription before it renews to avoid the billing of the next periodic Subscription Fee to your account. We will bill the periodic Subscription Fee to the payment method you provided us with, or to a different payment method if you change your payment information. You may cancel your subscription at any time in your account or by contacting us at support@sherpo.app. You acknowledge and agree that any Subscription Fee that is paid cannot be refunded for the applicable subscription period.
5.5.4. Late Pick-Up Fee. If an Item is not picked up within the designated time limit, we will continue charging our rates for the Item. In the event of unavailable funds, Points have the right to ship the Item out without notice to Users or to any other location designated by Sherpo. In such cases, Users may be charged a fee of $50 (or €50, £50, or any applicable currency) per Item (“Late Pick-Up Fee”). To retrieve the Item(s), Users must pay the Late Pick-Up Fee, along with any additional fees to ship the Item(s). All these fees must be paid before the Item(s) are returned. If the User makes themselves unavailable for retrieval, Sherpo and its Points have the authority to dispose of the Item as they prefer.

5.6. Sherpo reserves the right to change fees periodically. We will use our best efforts to provide you with up-to-date information about fees. We encourage you to check our website at https://sherpo.app and our mobile applications for current fee information. Fee changes will only apply to bookings made after the effective date of the fee change.

5.7. Sherpo, at its sole discretion, may make promotional offers with different features and pricing for Users, subject to different terms and conditions.

Sherpo Coins obtained through Platform usage or other means aside from direct purchase may be revoked, limited, or not honored by Sherpo at its reasonable discretion, including before the attached expiration date.

Coverage and Sherpo coverage

6.1. Item storage services booked and paid for through the Sherpo Platform are covered by a basic coverage for €50 (or $50 in the US, £50 in the UK, or any other applicable currency). Users who opt-in and pay for Sherpo Coverage can increase the coverage guarantee to up to €3,000 (or $3,000 in the US, £3,000 in the UK, or any other applicable currency). All Items of Sherpo Subscription Users are automatically covered for €1,000 (or $1,000 in the US, £1,000 in the UK, or any other applicable currency).

6.2. Payment for Sherpo Coverage must be made through the Sherpo Platform, not in cash or directly to the Point unless specified by the app, to be eligible to file a claim.

6.3. Upon collecting Item(s) from the Point, the User is entitled to inspect the Item(s) and their contents for any visible signs of unauthorized access or damage during storage. If the User finds any evidence of unauthorized access, damage, or content removal, they must immediately make a complaint to the Point and inform Sherpo while being at the Point location. This ensures that the incident can be properly linked to the use of the storage service.

6.4. To file a claim, Users must notify Sherpo at coverage@sherpo.app. The coverage and Sherpo Coverage apply to loss, damage, or theft of Users’ Items that occurred while using the Services and in relation to the Items linked to a booking made via the Sherpo Platform. Sherpo will not compensate Users for other costs such as transportation costs to or from Points, additional accommodation, or flights booked due to the inability to locate or access the Item. The coverage and Sherpo Coverage do not constitute a contract of insurance and are offered at the sole discretion of Sherpo.

6.5. Please note that any coverage offered by Sherpo is only available to Users who purchase it and make their payments through the online service. The coverage does not extend to storage services not booked and paid for through the Sherpo Platform or where the timer in the Sherpo app is not activated.

6.6. If you are eligible for compensation, Sherpo may compensate you for the value of lost, stolen, or damaged Items for $50 (or €50 in the EU, £500 in the UK, or any other applicable currency). Under Sherpo Coverage, Sherpo may compensate you for the value of lost, stolen, or damaged Items for up to $3,000 (or €3,000 in the EU, £3,000 in the UK, or any other applicable currency), considering your Item’s initial value as well as any loss caused by wear and tear. It is understood and agreed that Sherpo will not reimburse you for the replacement of the Item(s). The compensation value will be decided by Sherpo based on the evidence provided by you and individual circumstances. It is further understood and agreed that this coverage is offered at Sherpo’s sole discretion. Sherpo may reject your claim regardless of eligibility, for example, in the case of suspicion of fraud. It is understood and agreed that any decision on the compensation amount will be subject to Sherpo's reasonable discretion.

6.7. Coverages will not apply to: 6.7.1. Items paid for in cash or via other payment means not approved by Sherpo.
6.7.2. Items stored outside the Sherpo Platform.
6.7.3. Items that are prohibited. Prohibited Items are listed in SECTION 4.1.
6.7.4. Items not properly handled and/or packaged safely by Users or Items that are easily subject to damages despite reasonable handling and packaging.
6.7.5. Items that were abandoned. Items stored by the Users that are not paid for and picked up by the booking check-out time are considered abandoned and are no longer covered by Sherpo. Some Points may require that abandoned Items are promptly shipped out of their location(s), and Users will be responsible for paying the Late Pick-Up Fee and any additional shipping costs in accordance with SECTION 5.5.4.

6.8. To be eligible for compensation under coverage and Sherpo Coverage, Users must not (a) intentionally or unintentionally cause any damage to Sherpo’s brand or reputation; (b) breach these Terms; (c) receive any compensation from any insurer or other party with respect to the loss, theft, or damage for which they are claiming compensation under the coverage or Sherpo Coverage. Users must be prepared to disclose any relevant communication with their insurance company or other compensating party to us. Failure to do so may result in the claim being rejected.

6.9. We may ask you to cooperate and communicate with relevant parties, such as the relevant Point and law enforcement, in resolving a claim. We may also ask you to cooperate with the Point and their Affiliates in connection with all security measures that are currently in place in the Point Location, and that may be in place in the future, relating to the handling, storage, retrieval, and shipping of Items. “Affiliates” in these Terms refer to both Sherpo’s Affiliates as part of Sherpo’s Affiliate Programme and Points’ Affiliates.

6.9. To activate compensation for any coverage in relation to the Storage Service: 6.9.1. Users must have a valid booking for Storage Service for their Item(s) and must be able to show valid proof of payment.
6.9.2. Users must demonstrate that they (a) made a booking via the Sherpo Platform and that all their interactions with Points were made exclusively via the Sherpo Platform; (b) took a photo of each Item at the time of check-in; (c) followed any other on-screen instructions. Failure to complete any of these steps may void the application of the Sherpo Coverage.
6.9.3. Users must notify Sherpo about the stolen, lost, or damaged Item(s) for which they need coverage by sending us an email at coverage@sherpo.app or by contacting us through any other means. The user must have made a complaint to the Point and informed Sherpo while being at the Point location. This will ensure that the incident can be properly linked to the use of the storage service. The complaint must happen within twenty-four (24) hours of the scheduled end of the booking.
6.9.4. Users must share with Sherpo all relevant details regarding the exact Item(s) stored in the bag(s), luggage(s), etc. linked to the booking. This includes the condition of the Item(s) immediately before they were stored, the condition at the time you retrieved the Item(s), and the value of each Item included in the claim.
6.9.5. Users must provide evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that the Item was stolen, damaged, or lost while being stored as part of the Storage Service. This may include police reports, receipts, video footage, and other evidence we may ask you to provide. Failure to provide adequate documentation of the requirements listed above may automatically give grounds for a rejection of the claim. Whether or not the evidence provided is to be considered adequate will be decided at Sherpo’s sole discretion.

Cancellation policy and refunds

7.1. Users can cancel a confirmed booking in accordance with the cancellation policy set by Sherpo. We strongly recommend that you carefully read the information regarding the applicable Terms before booking Storage Services.

7.4. Valid cancellation requests will be refunded in Sherpo Coins or through the payment method used for the booking.

7.5. The Point will not offer Storage Services within the Cancellation Period, unless expressly requested by the User. Storage shall be considered fully performed when the Items are placed at the Point, at which time the User forfeits the right to cancel the Storage Agreement.

7.7. A cancellation fee of €2.00/$2.00/£2.00 per Item will be deducted for cancellations made after 10 minutes. No cancellation fees apply to Sherpo Subscription Users.

7.8. If the User does not show up and the booking isn’t canceled, the User accepts that Sherpo, on behalf of the Point, will deduct a No-Show Fee equal to a full day of storage per Item at the selected storage location.

7.9. If a Point cancels the Booking prior to the Services, the User will be reimbursed for the paid Booking Amount. If a Point is unable to fulfill a Booking, Sherpo will notify the User and provide a refund or, if the User requests, arrange Storage Services with an alternative Point in accordance with these Terms.

Reviews

9.3. At the end of the Storage Period, if your Item has not been claimed, you understand and agree that Sherpo may extend your booking for Storage Service at the then-applicable rate to cover the full period that your Item is in the possession of the Point, whether you receive notice from us or the Point. You must contact Sherpo to arrange for the recovery of your Item(s). If the payment attempts to extend your reservation fail, if you are unreachable by Sherpo or the Point, or if you don’t manage to successfully contact Sherpo or the Point, the Point may dispose of your Item(s) at its sole discretion. You understand and agree that a Point may take the above-described actions with respect to your Items and waive all claims you may have against the Points, its franchisor, or any of their Affiliates or other related entities.

Limitation of liability

12.1. To the fullest extent permitted by law, in no event will the Sherpo entities, the Points, or their Affiliates be liable to you for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or punitive damages (including damages for loss of profits, goodwill, or any other intangible loss) arising out of or relating to your access to or use of, or your inability to access or use, the Sherpo Platform, the Services, or any materials or content made available by Sherpo. This includes damages whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), statute, or any other legal theory, and whether any Sherpo entity, Point, or any of their Affiliates have been informed of the possibility of damage. Except as provided in SECTION 6 and to the fullest extent permitted by law, the aggregate liability of the Sherpo entities to you for all claims arising out of or relating to the use of or any inability to use any portion of the services, or otherwise under these Terms, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, is limited to the greater of: (a) the amount you have paid to Sherpo for access to and use of the Sherpo Platform in the twelve (12) months prior to the event or circumstance giving rise to the claim; or (b) €100 ($100, £100, or any other applicable currency).

12.2. Each provision of these Terms that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages is intended to and does allocate the risks between the Parties under these Terms.

The limitations in this SECTION will apply even if any limited remedy fails for its essential purpose. Any claim for loss, mishandling, theft, or conversion of, or damage to, an Item shall be filed directly with Sherpo and not the Point or its Affiliates.

12.3. Sherpo shall only be liable for loss or damage you suffer directly from any breach of these Terms by us, or if we act negligently or fraudulently.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, you are responsible for your use of the Sherpo Platform and Services, and you will defend and indemnify Sherpo and its officers, directors, employees, consultants, affiliates, subsidiaries and agents (together, the “Sherpo Entities”) and the Points and each of their officers, directors, employees, consultants, affiliates, subsidiaries and agents (together with the Sherpo Entities, the “Indemnitees”) from and against every claim brought by a third party, and any related liability, damage, loss, and expense, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, arising out of or connected with: (a) your use of, or misuse of, the Sherpo Platform or the Services; (b) your violation of any portion of these Terms, any representation, warranty, or agreement referenced in these Terms, or any applicable law or regulation; (c) your violation of any third party right, including any intellectual property right or publicity, confidentiality, other property, or privacy right; or (d) any dispute or issue between you and any third party.
