You may not sell or dispose of the equipment without first getting approval from us.
The equipment is supplied on a long-term loan basis and we will contact you yearly to ensure that the equipment is still in use & in good working order.
Should the receiver no longer require the machine and you have no further need, the equipment must be returned to us.
The Equipment is loaned to you free of charge.
You should keep the equipment in a secure location and in good condition (wear and tear is expected however).
The devices have a unique identifying number on them. This is for our audit purposes and should not be removed.

You accept responsibility for loss or damage to the equipment caused by negligence or improper use by the receiver. Improper use includes; using the equipment outside of the manufacturer’s instructions, modifying or removing pre-installed software, accessing websites which are not age and/or education appropriate, using the equipment for another purpose than what you describe in your application, or allowing the equipment out of your control /custody.
Improper use of the equipment may lead to you needing to return the devices to us, or in extreme circumstances, criminal or civil liability under applicable laws.
Ownership and return of the equipment
The equipment remains the property of Wiltshire Digital Drive. When returned to us, all data will be securely wiped from a device we loan to you.
We can terminate the agreement with immediate effect by serving written notice if you are in breach of these conditions, if the relevant individual/family is no longer eligible or if we consider the equipment unsafe or unsuitable for purpose.

You’ll be responsible for checking if a home insurance policy in place would cover the loss, damage or theft of the equipment and for notifying your insurer of the equipment where it is appropriate to do so.
