The Platform

Couture Lane is an online shop that allows consumers to discover curated fashion from boutiques around the United States and make direct purchases from these boutiques. You tell us a little about your style preferences and we will suggest clothing, accessories, and even full outfits to complete your wardrobe.

Accessing the Platform and Account Security

We reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Platform, and any service or material we provide on the Platform, in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Platform is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Platform, or the entire Platform, to users, including registered users.

You may view certain items on the Platform, such as the description of its services and a sample of boutiques listed on the Platform, without registering for a user account. However, in order to fill out the style questionnaire, view your curated fashion suggestions, make purchases on the Platform, post items for sale from your boutique, or most other features, you must register for a user account. For more information about creating an account, please go to the additional terms of use here.

It is a condition of your use of the Platform that all the information you provide on the Platform is correct, current, and complete. You agree that all information you provide to register with the Platform or otherwise is governed by our Privacy Policy, and you consent to all actions we take with respect to your information consistent with our Privacy Policy.

You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information, as well as any and all activities that occur under your account. You must immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account and any other such security breach. We will not be liable for any loss that may occur as a result of someone else using your account or password, with or without your knowledge.

We have the right to disable any user name, password or other identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms of Use.

Changes to the Platform

We may update the content on the Platform from time to time, but its content is not necessarily complete or up-to-date. Any of the material on the Platform may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update such material.

Fees

Viewing and using the Platform is free, including creating a user account. Making purchases and selling merchandise on the Platform may incur fees, which are outlined in the additional terms of use here.
The Company reserves the right to modify its fee structure at any time and without advanced notice. Temporary or permanent modifications are effective as soon as they are published on the Platform and are applicable to all subsequent transactions.

Taxes

You are solely liable for all the taxes, fees, and commissions resulting from use of the Platform. These Terms of Use do not create a joint venture, partnership, or principal-agent relationship between you and the Company, or any other users, and nothing in these Terms of Use may be used to imply such a relationship. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold the Company harmless from any liability for, or assessment of, any claims or penalties with respect to such taxes, labor, or employment requirements, including any liability for, or assessment of taxes imposed on the Company by the relevant taxing authorities with respect to any fees paid to you as the result of using the Platform.

The Platform and its entire contents, features, and functionality (including but not limited to all information, software, text, displays, images, video and audio, and the design, selection, and arrangement thereof), are owned by the Company, its licensors, or other providers of such material and are protected by United States and international copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, and other intellectual property or proprietary rights laws. You are not permitted to reproduce, distribute, modify, or republish any of the material on the Platform, except as it is owned by you.

The Company name and logo, and all related names, logos, product and service names, designs, and slogans are the property of the Company or its affiliates or licensors. You must not use such marks without the prior written permission of the Company. All other names, logos, product and service names, designs, and slogans on the Platform are the trademarks of their respective owners.

Licensed Application

If you download the Company’s mobile application, you agree and understand that the mobile application and all related products and software (collectively, the “Application”) are licensed, not sold, to you for use only under these Terms of Use. The Company reserves all rights not expressly granted to you.

This license granted to you for the Application by the Company is limited to a non-transferable license to use the Application on any device that you own or control and as permitted by these Terms of Use and any other terms that may apply when you download the Application. You may not rent, lease, lend, sell, redistribute, or sublicense the Application. You may not copy (except as expressly permitted herein), decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify, or create derivative works of the Application, any updates, or any part thereof (except as and only to the extent any foregoing restriction is prohibited by applicable law or to the extent as may be permitted by the licensing terms governing use of any open sourced components included with the Application). Any attempt to do so is a violation of the rights of the Company and its licensors. If you breach this restriction, you may be subject to prosecution and damages. The terms of the license will govern any upgrades provided by the Company that replace and/or supplement the original Application, unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate license in which case the terms of that license will govern.

This license is in addition to any license terms required by Apple, Google, or any other source from which you may download the Application, and all are binding on you. In the event that this license conflicts with other license terms, these terms control.

Consent to Use of Data

You agree that the Company may collect and use technical data and related information, including but not limited to technical information about your device, system, and application software, and peripherals, that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support and other services to you (if any) related to the Platform. The Company may use this information, as long as it is in a form that does not personally identify you, to improve its products or to provide services or technologies to you.

In the event that you provide us any ideas, thoughts, criticisms, suggested improvements, or other feedback related to Platform (collectively “Feedback”), you agree we may use the Feedback to: (a) improve our Platform and (b) promote the Platform, and that you will not be due any compensation for your Feedback that is used in these ways. To the extent that we have your name, likeness, or voice, this will be part of the Feedback and you agree that we may use your name, likeness and voice in the same manner that we can use other Feedback. You grant to us a worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid, perpetual, irrevocable license to use, reproduce, modify, translate, distribute, perform, display, import, sell, offer for sale, make, have made and otherwise exploit the Feedback in any form, media, or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, and to allow others to do the same. This is true whether you provide the Feedback on the Platform or through any other method of communication with us, unless we have entered into a separate agreement with you that provides otherwise.

  • A statement, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.

If you fail to comply with all of these requirements, your DMCA Notice may not be effective. Additionally, if you knowingly misrepresent that material or activity on the Platform is infringing your copyright, you may be held liable for damages under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.

It is our policy in appropriate circumstances to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who are repeat infringers.
