13.8 You must secure evidence of the damage and cooperate with evee and/or other entities (such as law enforcement or evee’s insurers) during the claims processing, investigation or in any claim or action brought in respect of the damage. evee and/or its insurers will determine whether the damage occurred during the Rental Period and whether it is eligible for coverage.

  4. evee may allocate to you a Replacement Vehicle at its sole discretion. evee reserves the right to swap the Replacement Vehicle for another Replacement Vehicle during the Replacement Period.
