Terms and conditions
Version 1.3, last modified 24.04.23
The WeUse app (hereinafter referred to as “the app” or “the service”) is offered by WeUse ApS, Alsion 2, 6400 Sønderborg, CVR No. 41724064 (hereinafter referred to as “WeUse”).
The app is a sharing service that allows users to share tools, garden equipment, kitchenware, entertainment equipment, office supplies, digital items, etc. (hereinafter referred to as “assets”) between colleagues in companies, neighbors in housing communities or private individuals in their own personal community (hereinafter referred to as “communities”). The user will also be able to demand services and help from each other (hereinafter referred to as “services”).
The aim is to create cohesion and sustainability in local communities by allowing users to use each other’s resources so that users find a common denominator and can help each other. The utilization of each other’s resources will create a more circular consumption, as fewer people need to buy the same things.
When you get in touch with other users, you decide what information you want to exchange with others. We are not responsible for the misuse of exchanged data, so always use common sense.
In the following sets out terms for your use of the app, including lending your own assets and borrowing other people’s assets, as well as when offering services and purchasing other people’s services. If you have any questions, please contact customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can create your user by using the code provided to you by your community (housing community, company, or person who has created a private network, etc). Your user is created by entering your information in the entry form. You can create 1 users via the code.The user is personal and may not be used by anyone other than the person registered in the app.
ALL USERS ARE REQUIRED TO TAKE OUT AND MAINTAIN A RELEVANT INSURANCE – see more under “Insurance”.
Likewise, WeUse can terminate a user’s access to the service at any time – and thus terminate the user’s profile – with 30 days notice.
In the event of a material breach, WeUse reserves the right to immediately delete a user (terminate the agreement) without notice.
Upon self-deletion of the user, information about the user and products will be removed from WeUse so that they no longer appear visible on WeUse. If the user is no longer part of the community in which the user is registered, the user is obliged to remove their association with the previous community. The community administrator can receive a list of members of the community (Name, email) and see who is still associated with the community. Unaffiliated users will be removed from the community.

Obligations of lenders
As a lender, you are obliged to follow these conditions, including our lending rules.
You may only rent out your own assets, which you have the right to rent out.
It is your responsibility as a lender to ensure that the rented asset works according to what is stated in the advertisement, as well as at the request of the borrower to assist with any challenges.
Before each transfer of an asset, the asset must be thoroughly cleaned, including, if possible, sanitized in accordance with applicable rules.
If a borrower does not return the item, the non-delivery is considered theft. In case of theft, the case will be handed over to the local police and user access to WeUse will be suspended. WeUse will continuously develop functionality to facilitate safe rental, including functionality for reminding the borrower to hand back, reminding the lender to decide whether the asset has been duly returned.
Obligations of the borrower
As a borrower, you are obliged to:
- Check the item before accepting the rental and if the item is as directed in the ad.
- Contact the lender if an item does not work as agreed.
- Note deviations from the ad in the remarks under the rental contract.
- Charge rechargeable battery or insert new batteries if agreed with lender.
- If necessary, clean the item prior to use and cleaning of the item prior to return.
You are also obliged to:
- Treat the borrowed item properly and inform the lender about any damages.
- Return the borrowed item as agreed in the rental agreement.
- Replace any broken items.
Rules on services
You may only provide services that you know how to perform.
If you provide services that require authorisation to perform, such as craft work like plumbing or electrician work, legal authorisation is required.
It is your own responsibility to ensure that the services provided or the services purchased comply with Danish law.
Each user is obliged of his own accord to take out and maintain relevant insurance, both owner and rentee or provider of services or recipient of services.
It is your own responsibility to ensure that your home insurance (relevant if you live in Denmark) or other relevant insurance covers the lending of assets or covers borrowed assets. According to our current knowledge, home insurance in Denmark does not usually cover the rental of the following assets:
- Gold, silver, jewelry, pearls and gemstones, money and the like.
- Small boats, canoes, kayaks, wind and kite surfers and the like.
- Tools, props, and instruments that you use as a salary recipient in a profession.
It is also your own responsibility to ensure that you have compulsory liability insurance if the services offered so require.
Payment and payment
WeUse does not receive payment from users.
WeUse is not responsible for payment between users, but WeUse facilitates the possibility of completing payment by external, independent payment app (In Denmark, MobilePay), where information such as the owners phone number, amount of rental and ad description are transferred. It is the responsibility of users to ensure that payment is made.
WeUse only provides a platform and is thus only considered a facilitator.
WeUse is not responsible for the quality, properties of the rented items or for the users handling of the items.
WeUse is not responsible for the quality of the services provided.
WeUse has the right to report users to the police, as well as to assist the police in accordance with applicable law.
WeUse continuously observes the data protection rules on privacy by design and privacy by default, as well as on satisfactory processing security, notification of security breaches, etc.
Taxation of profits
Profits on the rental of private items may be taxed. It doesn’t matter if the items are sold, are new or used, where they’re purchased, or how long you’ve had them.
In WeUse’s knowledge, on the basis of profits on the rental of private items, tax must be paid. WeUse would like to support the users’ ability to give the amount to SKAT, which is why we have prepared an overview of earnings under your profile. It is irrelevant to WeUse whether any profit on rental should be taxed. Whether you report the amount and whether it is fiscally correct is your own responsibility. The way it should be calculated by TAX is your profit : Earnings – expenses = profit. It shall be entered in box 20.
After each rental, both the borrower and the lender will be asked to rate each other, including the level of service, whether the item lived up to the ad and whether the item was returned as agreed.
It can be a good idea to lend the first items cheaply, so that you as a lender quickly get a good rating and thereby have a greater probability of lending more items.
Jurisdiction and choice of law, including mediation and handling of disputes between lender and borrower
All agreements between you and WeUse, as well as between users are regulated by Danish law. Jurisdiction is the court of the city where you live.
Before bringing an action, each party to this Agreement shall convene the other party in order to resolve the disputes amicably. Only when mediation has been attempted can the parties legally file a summons with the district court.
