Provided no notice to terminate this Storage Agreement at the end of the Initial Storage Term as specified above (the "Initial Storage Term") is provided by either the Customer or the Company to the other at least 10 days before the end of the Initial Storage Term, upon expiry of the Initial Storage Term, this Storage Agreement shall be extended automatically on a month-to-month basis, unless this Storage Agreement is otherwise earlier terminated in accordance with the terms and conditions herein contained.

2. FEES AND DEPOSIT: The Monthly Fee as specified above (the "Monthly Fee") is calculated on a monthly basis commencing on the Storage Agreement Date as specified above and is payable on that same date each month of the Term thereafter. The Initial Term Fee as specified above (the Initial Term Fee") shall be paid on or before the date of this Storage Agreement and the Monthly Fee shall be paid in advance each month. There is no prorating of the Monthly Fee. The Company reserves the right to accept payment only in cash, credit card, debit card or money order, and reserves the right to reject any cheques tendered by the Customer. The Customer is required to provide the Company with the information of a valid credit card, which valid credit card will be kept on file. The minimum rental term is 1 month. There are no refunds on early move-outs. By signing this Storage Agreement, the Customer authorizes Railside Storage Incorporated to charge the Customer's credit card automatically whenever Fees (the Monthly Fee and Initial Term Fee due hereunder shall be referred to collectively hereunder as the "Fees") and/or other charges owing under this Storage Agreement are due. The Fees and/or other charges owing under this Storage Agreement shall be paid by the Customer to the Company without deduction for any claimed right of set-off, abatement or reduction whatsoever. At any time in the Company's sole discretion and without notice to the Customer, the Company may, but is not obligated to, apply the Deposit as specified above to or against any Fees and/or other charges owing under this Storage Agreement.

3. CUSTOMER'S PRIVILEGES: While this Storage Agreement is in force and provided that the Customer is not in breach of any terms or conditions of this Storage Agreement, the Customer may use the Space for the storage of the Goods of which the Customer is in lawful possession and have access to the Space by swiping its security card or entering its security code at the main gate entrance of the Premises if applicable and/or as the case may be. The Customer acknowledges that access to the Space may be limited and that the Company may change access hours for security or business reasons without notice to the Customer and such change will be posted on the Premises.

4. THE COMPANY HAS A LIEN ON THE GOODS DEPOSITED AND STORED: Pursuant to the Warehousemen's Lien Act of Alberta and/or such other statutes, legislation or law as may apply from time to time in Alberta, the Company shall have a lien on all of the Goods deposited with it for the Fees and for all other charges owing under this Storage Agreement.

5. DEFAULT IN PAYMENT: The Customer shall be deemed in default of this Storage Agreement automatically upon non-payment of any Fees when due and/or any other charges owing under this Storage Agreement when due without further notice to the Customer. Upon default of payment of any Fees and/or other charges owing under this Storage Agreement, until such default in payment has been rectified and all other charges in respect to the collection thereof owing under this Storage Agreement have been paid in full, in addition to all other remedies provided by law for the enforcement of liens or for the recovery of Fees and/or other charges owing under this Storage Agreement, the Company shall be entitled, but not obligated to, do one or more of the following at the Company's sole discretion:

(a) double-lock the Space and to detain the Goods stored therein; or

(b) forcibly remove the Customer's lock to the Space and remove any or all of the Goods from the Space for storage elsewhere; or

(c) remove or discharge any liens or security interests that the Goods are subject to and then sell the Goods by private sale or pubic sale, including public auction or closed tender,

and apply the proceeds therefrom against money owing by the Customer to the Company under this Storage Agreement and sue the Customer for any deficiency; or

(d) remove or discharge any liens or security interests that the Goods are subject to and then take and keep the goods in full satisfaction of all Fees and/or other charges owing

under this Storage Agreement by the Customer and thereby vest lawful ownership of the Goods in the Company.

These Company remedies in this Storage Agreement are cumulative, not alternative. To exercises any of these remedies of the Company set out in this Storage Agreement, the Customer hereby grants the Company a power of attorney for the Company to do one or more of the following at the Company's sole discretion:(a) detain the Goods; or (b) forcibly remove the Customer's lock to the Space; or (c) remove the Goods from the Space; or (d) store the Goods elsewhere than the Space; or (e) sell the Goods; or (f) take and keep the Goods; or (g) vest lawful ownership of the Goods in the Company; or (h) to remove or discharge any liens or security interests that the Goods are subject to. In the event that the Company detains the Goods, forcibly removes the Customer's lock to the Space, removes the Goods from the Space, stores the Goods elsewhere than the Space or removes or discharges any liens or security interests that the Goods are subject to and then sells the Goods, the Customer shall continue to be liable for all Fees and/or any other charges owing under this Storage Agreement to the Company until such default in payment has been rectified and all other charges in respect to the collection thereof owing under this Storage Agreement have been paid in full. In the event that the Company sells the Goods and applies the proceeds therefrom against money owing by the Customer to the Company under this Storage Agreement, the Customer shall be liable for all monies still owed by the Customer to the Company under this Storage Agreement after the Company applies the proceeds therefrom against money owing by the Customer to the Company under this Storage Agreement. In the event that the Company removes or discharges any liens or security interests that the Goods are subject to, the Customer shall be liable to pay to the Company for all monies paid by the Company to remove or discharge any liens or security interests that the Goods are subject to, including any monies paid by the Company to any lien holder or secured party. In the event that the Company removes the Goods from the Space, it shall be entitled to store the Goods in any other available space at the applicable storage fee, whether or not the fee for storage in such space is lower or higher than the Monthly Fee, and the Company shall not be liable for any increased fees as incurred or charged by the Company at its sole discretion, damage or inconvenience to the Customer in respect thereto. When the Customer is in default of timely payment of the Monthly Fee, the Company may require the Customer to make payment to the Company of all money owed and future Monthly Fees by cash, credit card, debit card or money order.

6. USE, MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR: The Customer is permitted access to the Space solely for the purposes of deposit, storage and removal of the Goods and shall not access or use the Space for any other purpose or in a manner that constitutes waste, nuisance or annoyance to the Company or other customers of the Company. The Space shall be used only for the storage of the Goods, which Goods are owned by the Customer or authorized by their owner to be stored by the Customer. Where a door is provided for the Space, the Customer shall keep the door to the Space locked at all times with a security device or lock supplied by the Customer. The Customer shall not use the Space for any unlawful purpose. The Customer shall be responsible for the repair to the Company's sole satisfaction of any damage to the interior or exterior of the Space or the Premises which are caused by the Customer or which results from the deposit or removal of the Goods into or from the Space or the storage of the Goods in the Space. The Customer shall not smoke within or upon the Space or the Premises, erect any signs, notice, lettering or advertising material upon any part of the Premises or the Space or conduct any repairs, fabrication, assembly, mechanical or other related work in the Space or upon the Premises without the written consent of the Company, which written consent may be unreasonably withheld by the Company at its sole discretion.

7. MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR BY THE COMPANY: The Company may need to access the Space for maintenance and repair purposes. In extreme cases such as vandalism, water leaks, flood, or other issues that may cause damage to the Goods, the Company reserves the right of cutting the Customer's lock to gain immediate access to the Space. At the Company's sole discretion, the Company will attempt to give the Customer verbal notice of such emergency so that the Customer can remove the Customer's lock and move the Goods prior to the Company entering the Space. In non-emergency cases, the Company will give the Customer 7 days written notice prior to the Company cutting the Customer's lock and entering the Space. In both cases, a replacement lock will be given to the Customer by the Company free of charge.

8. COMPANY AND CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP: The Company and its employees, agents, representatives or affiliates may enter the Space for any purpose, including but not limited to confirming the Customer's compliance with this Storage Agreement, or in the event of perceived emergency by the Company. No advance notice of such entry is required or may be given to the Customer, and if such entry requires the Company to cut off the Customer's lock, provided such was not made necessary by the Customer's breach of any term of this Storage Agreement, the Company will provide the Customer with a replacement lock free of charge. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that there is no landlord and tenant relationship created by this Storage Agreement. The Customer is simply storing the Goods in the Space and the Customer is not entitled to any proprietary rights or privacy rights in respect to the Space or the Goods stored therein, including any rights that a tenant may have in a typical landlord and tenant relationship. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that there is a bailor and bailee relationship created by this Storage Agreement. The Customer further acknowledges and agrees that the Warehousemen's Lien Act of Alberta applies to the relationship between the Company and the Customer and that the Company is in the business of storing goods as a bailee for hire and is warehouser as that term is defined in the Warehousemen's Lien Act of Alberta. The Customer further acknowledges and agrees that the Unclaimed Personal Property And Vested Property Act of Alberta does not apply to the relationship of the Company and the Customer. In addition to any other rights of entry or re-entry the Company may have, the Company may, upon presentation of lawful demand, permit access to or the removal of goods from the Space or goods located thereon, as may be required by law, without notice to the Customer, or liability to the Customer for any loss or removal of property, or any damages associated therewith.

The Company shall have no liability to the Customer for any injury to the Customer and/or the Customer's agents, employees, invitees, representatives or affiliates or others caused by any condition existing near or about the Space or the Premises or resulting from the activities of the Customer. The Customer shall indemnify and hold the Company harmless from any claims of any third persons arising in any manner whatsoever out of the Customer's use of the Space. The Customer hereby waives any and all rights or claims it may have at law or in equity against the Company in respect to any obligations that the Company may have as a bailee of the Goods, other than those rights that are specifically granted herein and the Customer agrees that any rights or remedies it may have against the Company for breach of this Storage Agreement or loss or damage to the Goods stored in the Space are limited to those rights specifically contained in this Storage Agreement and limited to an amount of money that shall not exceed the amount of money owed by the Customer in a calendar year for the Fees.

10. INDEMNIFICATION OF THE COMPANY: The Customer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company and the holder of any mortgage on the Premises for any loss, damage, expense or claim by any person or persons arising from any action, omission or thing whatsoever done or committed in the Space or on the Premises by the Customer and/or the Customer's agents, employees, invitees, representatives or affiliates.
