Users are reminded that ALL equipment MUST be collected and returned by the agreed date and time of your online booking. Equipment is only checked in once it has been fully inspected by MLS staff. It is the users' responsibility to allow enough time for queuing and the check-in process. Equiment can always be returned by another person.

Uncollected bookings automatically expire after 30 minutes of their start time. Please check your equipment on collection and report any missing items to a member of staff; failure to do so will result in you being charged for the missing items.

It is the users' responsibility to format equipment memory prior to and after use.

The Media Loan Shop cannot be held liable for any loss of data on either external or internal storage media of equipment issued.

Current banning rules for late equipment:

Up to 1 hour late = 24 hour ban.
1-24 hours late = 3 day ban.
1-3 days late = 7 day ban.
3-7 days late = 14 day ban.
7 days+ late = Disciplinary procedures.

Non-collection of studio keys - 1 week ban.
