(1) the right to control and possess the bailed property during the term of the bailment agreement,
(2) in some cases, the right to use the bailed property,
(3) except in cases of gratuitous bailments, the right to be compensated, and
(4) the right to limit their liability for damage to the bailed property by agreement with the bailor, as long as the limitation (a) is called to the bailor's attention and (b) is not contrary to public policy.
