It is understood and agreed that the undersigned specifically consents to United Rentals investigating of the applicant's credit history and may utilize credit reporting services for information on the undersigned.

The Federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act/regulation B prohibits creditors from discriminating against credit applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age (provided the applicant has the capacity to enter into a binding contract); because all or part of the applicant's income derives from any public assistance program; or because the applicant has, in good faith, exercised any right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act. The federal agency that administers compliance with the law concerning this credit is the Federal Trade Commission, Division of Credit Practices, 6TH and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, D.C. 20580.
