• TERMS AND CONDITIONS

    very important but also very boring

    WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK

     

    To be covered by us if something goes wrong please note the following:

    • start and complete the booking through the app so we can see what stage the order is at
    • use our payment portal 
    • keep all chat within the app - don’t take it offline
    • if it does not fit let the lender know straight away via the chat button and return it as soon as possible, issuing a refund or exchange is a the discretion of the owner
    • if you feel the item is not as described take a photo straight away and send it support@highstreetrunway.com 
    • if you accidentally damage an item please let the owner know straight away and see if you can figure out a solution - you will be liable for the cost of the repair or replacement value (please note the replacement value listed on the item description)
    • You may be liable for extra cleaning fees
    • if you can't return an item on time please let the owner know straight away and you may be liable for a late fee
    •  if an outfit is stolen we will report you to the police
    • it’s at our discretion when we mediate on your behalf, in particular with the replacement cost of the garment.
    • We recommend using tracked parcels with Australia Post. We do not take any responsibility if lost in transit or if delivered but not received. 
    We realise things don't always go to plan and we can issue a refund at any time at the request of the owner. Please use our chat function to ask about the renters' refund policy when confirming details about the booking. All refunds are issued through our payment gateway PayPal.
     

    WHAT WE EXPECT FROM OUR USERS

     

    When listing and communicating on the app we expect you will not post content that:

    1. Is defamatory, obscene, vulgar, threatening, harassing or offensive language or comments
    2. Is blatant advertising – sure link in your favourite designers and labels but please no commercial content that encourages rentals to take place elsewhere. For example if you have your own rental website, by all means list your products and take bookings on the app, don't push them back to the website.
    3. Spam - no-one wants contact, or content that is shared repeatedly in a disruptive manner.
    4. Endorses or promotes anything which is illegal or harmful – keep it clean.
    5.  Is mean and not nice about another person – in legal terms this is considered discriminatory or attempts to impersonate someone else, another member or a shop (eg: don’t call yourself Princess Polly because you’re not).
    6. Is illegal or violates another person’s or entity’s rights, including intellectual property rights and privacy right.
    7. This one’s really important – don’t ever, ever, EVER give information about someone else’s location – do all of this communicating via the messenger function on the app – it could be dangerous and put the other persons’ safety at risk.
    8. Is incorrect meaning dishonest, fraudulent, false, misleading or deceptive.
