Equipment installed by your cable company, placed under, over, on or about your home or property in connection with the delivery of service, is the property of the cable company. Rented digital receivers that are provided to customers, if necessary or requested, are the property of the cable company. Rented equipment must be returned to us when service is discontinued for any reason, or at any reasonable time we need to issue other equipment. Failure to return rented equipment at the appropriate time will result in a charge to the customer's account and may lead to legal action to recover the equipment. You are responsible for damage to rented equipment, other than normal wear and tear, and may be assessed a charge for repair or replacement. Equipment purchased from the cable company is the property of the customer and not covered by the above equipment policy.
