We collect two types of data about individuals: (1) technical data automatically collected from all visitors to the Website, and individuals that use the Services and (2) information that you or others voluntarily submit to us.

“Personal Information,” as used in these Terms, is information that allows the direct identification of an individual, such as a name or email address, and information that is directly combined with such identifying information. Our primary purpose in collecting Personal Information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. We only collect Personal Information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose.

If you order Products from us, we request certain Personal Information from you, whether you access the Services from our Site, other electronic means, phone or mail. You must provide contact information (including name, shipping address, telephone number) and financial information (including credit card number and expiration date). We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we may use this information to contact you.

Before your order can be processed, we will require that you acknowledge that you have reviewed and consented to these Terms. 

 

RC does not sell or rent your Personal Information to third parties.

 

We may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests on our Site or other electronic mediums (such as our Facebook® or Instagram® pages). If you participate, we will request certain Personal Information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address) and demographic information. We use this information to notify contest winners and to send participants an email newsletter. By participating in a contest you submit to that activity’s terms and conditions, including providing us with permission, if required, to share your Personal Information with sponsors of that contest. We reserve the exclusive right to cancel any contest or promotion without notice at any time.

 

We will occasionally send you information on Services, Products, contests, and promotions. You can take advantage of promotions by entering the promotion code provided at the time of checkout.

Products may be rented or purchased for use by individuals under 18 years of age, but we rent or sell only to adults, who may rent or purchase the Products with a payment card or other approved payment method (such as Paypal). By clicking agreeing to these Terms, you represent that you are 18 years or older and that you are authorized to use the chosen payment method (including credit cards) for the purpose of renting or purchasing the Products as described in these Terms.

Limits. You acknowledge and agree that we may place limits on the rental or purchase of Products, including restricting orders placed under a single customer account, payment card or billing or shipping address. We reserve the right to limit, cancel or prohibit any rentals or sales of Products for any reason, including availability concerns.

Delivery. All deliveries will be through RC’s shipping partners, which may change from time to time at RC’s discretion. The shipping method used will be at the discretion of RC.

Collections. If you do not pay the amounts you owe to RC when due, RC may institute collection procedures. You agree to pay RC’s costs of collection, including reasonable attorneys' fees.

 

B. Rentals

The following additional conditions apply to the rental of any Product.

 

Rental Fee. The rental fee (“Rental Fee”) for the Product will be the total of the rental fee, insurance charges and delivery charges listed on the Site for your rental of the Product. When you place your rental order for a Product, you hereby authorize RC to charge your payment card for the Rental Fee. RC will charge your payment card the amount of the Rental Fee immediately upon your rental order. A reservation of a Product on the Site is an order for the rental of that Product, regardless of how far in advance that Product is reserved. In addition, at the time of your rental order for a Product, you hereby authorize RC to charge your payment card for an amount equal to 200% of the original retail value of the Product (when new), or the market value of the Product, as determined in the sole discretion of RC, plus applicable sales taxes. This authorization of 200% is not charged unless an item is not returned or is damaged beyond repair. Rental Fees exclude all federal, state and local taxes, goods and services tax, fees, customs, duties, levies and other governmental assessments, all of which shall be paid by you directly or, if paid by RC, shall be paid by you to RC in connection with your rental order. You may cancel your rental order at least fourteen (14) days prior to the ordered delivery date, subject to the following cancellation fees: (i) for cancellations that are thirty (30) or more days in advance of such delivery date, no cancellation fee; and (ii) for cancellations that are less than thirty (30) days in advance of such delivery date, five dollar ($5.00) fee with remaining credit applied to a future RC rental.

Return Packaging.With delivery of the Product, RC will provide you with a pre-paid, pre-addressed envelope as well as instructions for your use in returning the Products to RC (“Return Packaging”).

Receipt of the Products. Upon delivery, you bear responsibility for the Product(s). You acknowledge that a Secure Shipping Address is highly recommended. A Secure Shipping Address means a location where an individual can physically receive Product(s). In the event that an unsecure shipping address is provided, RC does not bear liability for Products left unattended. Furthermore, you acknowledge that providing anything other than a Secure Shipping Address may result in delivery delays and additional delivery fees for which RC will not be liable. You will be liable for all such delays and additional delivery fees.

Use of the Products. You agree to treat the Products with great care, as if it was borrowed from your close friend. RC’s products are meant to be used/worn in limited capacity such as photo shoots, weddings, special events, etc. You are responsible for loss, destruction or damage to the Products due to theft, mysterious disappearance, fire, major stains or any other cause, other than normal wear and tear. Normal wear and tear encompasses minor stains, missing beads, stuck zippers or other minor damage. If you return a Product that is damaged beyond normal wear and tear, you agree that we shall charge you, and you shall pay, for the price for repairing or replacing the Product, as determined in our discretion, up to 200% of the the retail value or market value for the Product. RC reserves the right to charge a ten dollar ($10.00) excessive cleaning fee when necessary. 

Return of the Products; Extensions. You agree to return the Products to RC in the Return Packaging on or before the return date for the Products that are identified in the invoice for your order. You may extend your order for a Product by sending an email to rentals@raineyscloset.com; provided that any extensions are subject to other orders for that Product and to pre-payment of the additional Rental Fee applicable to that Product for the period of time of the extension. You must return the Product by delivering the Product in the Return Packaging to a postal located in the United States.

Late Fees. If you return the Products late or not at all, a late fee of twenty five dollars ($25.00) for orders less than one hundred dollars ($100.00) and fifty dollars ($50.00) for orders one hundred dollars ($100.00) and over will be charged per day to the payment card you used to pay the Rental Fee or to any other payment card included in your account information that you have provided to RC for every day that you are late returning the Products, and you agree to pay such late fees, up to an amount not to exceed 200% of the retail value or market value, as determined in our discretion, plus applicable sales tax (plus the Rental Fee). The late fee is payable for each order of Products that is not returned when due, not for each Product that is the subject of the order that is late. If you have not returned a Product within twenty (20) days after the return date for the Product, your late return will be considered a non-return and RC will charge your payment card the maximum late fee set forth in this Section 2(B), less any late fees that you have already paid, plus applicable sales tax.

Payment of 200% Retail Value or Market Value. RC will not charge you for more than an amount equal to 200% of the retail value or market value plus the Rental Fee, in the aggregate, for any charges arising under this Section 2(B), excluding collection costs. If you pay RC an amount equal to 200% of the retail value or market value under this Section 2(B) and you still possess the Product, the Product is yours to keep, though on an “AS IS” basis without warranty of any kind. For the avoidance of doubt, the limitations of this clause shall not apply to the Rental Fee, which is charged separately from, and in addition to, any other charges payable by you pursuant to this Section 2(B).

Lost Return Packaging. If you lose the Return Packaging, you will be responsible for returning the item at your own expense by the expected return date, and providing RC with a tracking number.

Limited Warranties. The following are the limited warranties RC provides in connection with Product rentals. RC’s liability to you for failure to comply with any of these warranties is limited to timely delivery of Product conforming to the warranties or a refund of the Rental Fee (excluding delivery charges) as determined by RC. See Section 6(A) below.

Correct Products. We will deliver the Products you ordered, including the specified size, color and design, on or before the delivery date for which you ordered them, except in the rare event that the Product is damaged beyond repair, returned late by a previous customer, or is otherwise unavailable. In such event, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you that the Product is unavailable. If we are able to reach you, you will be entitled to choose any available rental Product to replace the unavailable Product. If we are unable to reach you, you acknowledge and agree that we may send you a replacement product of the same or greater value. Products may appear different in color and style than as displayed on the Site or other electronic medium.

Clean and Ready to Wear. The Products will be cleaned and delivered ready to wear. RC dry cleans and/or hand washes and inspects each Product with the utmost care, but use of the Product is at your own risk and RC shall not be held liable for any health-related complaints associated with any Product.

Sizing Returns. If your Product does not fit, then you may contact RC within 24 hours (excluding Sundays and holidays) of the date you received the Product at rentals@raineyscloset.com to choose a substitute Product with no additional rental fee. RC can overnight ship the substitute product when available but shipping costs will be your responsbility. 

Condition. Items will be brand new, like new, excellent used condition, or very good used condition. They will not have flaws that are noticeable when photographed or worn.

YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY HEREUNDER SHALL BE AS SET FORTH UNDER SECTION 7(A) OR TO DISCONTINUE YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES AND TERMINATE THESE TERMS.

 

7. DISPUTE RESOLUTION, ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

 

This Section 7includes an arbitration agreement and an agreement that all claims will be brought only in an individual capacity (and not as a class action or other representative proceeding). Please read it carefully. You may opt-out of the arbitration agreement by following the opt-out procedure described below.

 

A. Informal Process First

 

You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and RC, you will first contact RC and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution, including without limitation any court action.

 

B. Arbitration Agreement

 

After the informal dispute resolution process any remaining dispute, controversy, or claim (collectively, “Claim”) relating in any way to your use of RC’s Services and/or Products, or relating in any way to RC’s communications with you, will be finally resolved by binding arbitration. The prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorney’s fees and costs. This mandatory arbitration agreement applies equally to you and RC. However, this arbitration agreement does not (a) govern any Claim by RC for infringement of its intellectual property or access to the Services that (including the Site) is unauthorized or exceeds authorization granted in these Terms.

 

You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and RC are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive any termination of these Terms.

 

If you wish to begin an arbitration proceeding, after following the informal dispute resolution procedure, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to R. Jason Richards, Attorney at Law, 17 East Main Street, Suite 200, Pensacola, FL 32502. The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules then in effect including, if you are an individual, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. If you are not an individual or have used the Services on behalf of an entity, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will not be used. The number of arbitrators shall be one. RC shall choose the arbitrator.

 

The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. Florida law shall apply. The final arbitration hearing shall be conducted in Escambia County, Florida. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. If any part of this agreement to arbitrate is deemed invalid under applicable law, all other parts will nevertheless remain enforceable. 

 

The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, arbitrability, enforceability, or formation of this arbitration agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this arbitration agreement is void or voidable. However, the preceding sentence shall not apply to Section 7(C) below.

 

C. Class Action Waiver

 

Any Claim must be brought in the respective party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, representative, multiple plaintiff, or similar proceeding (“Class Action”). The parties expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. If the Claim is subject to arbitration, the arbitrator shall not have authority to combine or aggregate similar claims or conduct any Class Action nor make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. The parties understand that any right to litigate in court, to have a judge or jury decide their case, or to be a party to a class or representative action, is waived, and that any claims must be decided individually, through arbitration.

If this class action waiver is found to be unenforceable, the entirety of the Arbitration Agreement in section 7(B), if otherwise effective, shall be void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and RC each waive any right to a jury trial.

 

8. MISCELLANEOUS

 

Jurisdictional Issues. RC makes no representation that the Services are appropriate or available for use outside the United States. Those who choose to access the Services or any part thereof from outside the United States do so at their own risk and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. The Services may contain references or cross references to products or services that are not available or approved by the appropriate regulatory authorities in your country. Such references do not imply that RC intends to announce or make available such products or services to the general public, or in your country. Contact RC at rentals@raineyscloset.com to determine which products and services may be available to you.

Export Laws. The laws of the United States of America prohibit the export of certain software and data to particular persons, territories, and foreign states. You agree not to export the Services, including the RC Content, or any part thereof, in any way, in violation of United States law.

Governing Law and Venue. These Terms are governed and interpreted pursuant to the laws of the State of Florida, notwithstanding any principles of conflicts of law. Any disputes in connection with these Terms that result in court action, in accordance with these Terms, will be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in Escambia County, Florida, and you specifically consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts and waive any claim of forum non conveniens.

Entire Agreement. These Terms are the entire agreement between you and RC relating to the subject matter herein and shall not be modified except by RC in accordance with these Terms, or as otherwise agreed in writing by you and RC. No employee, agent or other representative of RC has any authority to bind RC with respect to any statement, representation, warranty or other expression not specifically set forth in these Terms.

Severability and Waiver. Unless otherwise set forth herein, if any part of these terms is unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. The failure of a party to require performance of any provision will not affect such party’s right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor shall a waiver of any breach or default of these Terms or any provision of these Terms constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself.

Assignment. You may not assign or transfer these Terms or any of your rights or obligations under these Terms. RC may assign these Terms at any time without notice to you.

Force Majeure. RC will not be liable for, or be considered to be in breach of these Terms on account of, any delay or failure to perform as required by these Terms as a result of any cause or condition beyond RC’s reasonable control.
