You should read this carefully before you use The Renterie. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to email us at email@example.com.
1. Accepting the Terms of Service
2. Access to the Services
The therenterie.com website and domain name and any other linked pages, features, content, or application services (including without limitation any mobile application services) offered from time to time by Company in connection therewith (collectively, the “Website”) are owned and operated by Company. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Company may offer to provide certain services, as described more fully on the Website, and that have been selected by you (together with the Website, the “Services”), solely for your own use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party. The term “Services” includes, without limitation, use of the Website, any service Company performs for you and the Content (as defined below) offered by Company on the Website. Company may change, suspend or discontinue the Services at any time, including the availability of any feature, database, or Content. Company may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability. Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify this Agreement at any time by posting a notice on the Website, or by sending you a notice via email or postal mail. You shall be responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any such modifications. Your use of the Services following such notification constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as modified.
Company does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for the Services. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to Company or on the Services. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at “firstname.lastname@example.org”.You represent and warrant to Company that: (i) you are an individual (i.e., not a corporation) and you are of legal age to form a binding contract or have your parent’s permission to do so, and you are at least 13 years or age or older; (ii) all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful; and (iii) you will maintain the accuracy of such information. You also certify that you are legally permitted to use and access the Services and take full responsibility for the selection and use of and access to the Services. This Agreement is void where prohibited by law, and the right to access the Services is revoked in such jurisdictions.
Purchases on The Renterie
The following terms govern purchases you make through The Renterie’s checkout system. These are items you have attempted to purchase, and/or have purchased, within The Renterie’s website or mobile application. This is different from purchases you may make on the websites of third-party brands that you were directed to via The Renterie. Separate terms contained within The Renterie’s Terms of Service govern those purchases made on third-party websites.
All purchases through The Renterie’s checkout system and the Services are governed by this Agreement and the terms and conditions of the third-party brands from which you purchase from. The Renterie will inform you when an order is placed with a third-party brand, however, each third-party brand shall have 100% discretion whether an order will be accepted and/or deemed valid, and/or whether you can make any changes to an order once placed and accepted.
Whether you can cancel an order once payment is made shall be governed 100% by the terms and conditions of each third-party brand.
Shipping and Delivery
The Renterie will provide you with a confirmation email that your order is received and is being processed. Once your order has been processed with the third-party brand, The Renterie will provide you a confirmation email that your order has been processed and accepted by the third-party brand. The Renterie may or may not provide you with an estimate of when your order will be shipped and/or delivered. Shipping and delivery are 100% within the discretion and control of each of the third-party brands. Any estimates The Renterie may provide you with respect to shipping and/or delivery are simply estimates and based on the best information available to The Renterie, however, you should not rely on these estimates in any way whatsoever. Please read the confirmation emails you receive from The Renterie for additional information on how to contact the third-party brands for additional information on the status of your order, shipping and delivery. These emails also contain instructions on the best ways to contact The Renterie to help with any questions about your order.
Each third-party brand on The Renterie has its own return policy and each order you make will be governed 100% by the terms and conditions of each third-party brand, including but not limited to, if returns are accepted and under what conditions, and whether you are responsible for additional shipping costs associated with any returns. You acknowledge and accept that The Renterie has absolutely no involvement, and/or control over, whether you will be permitted to return any order, or portion thereof, and you agree to only look to the third-party brand from which you ordered regarding returns.
Much like “Returns” discussed above, each third-party brand on The Renterie has its own refund policy and each order you make will be governed 100% by the terms and conditions of each third-party brand, including but not limited to, if refunds are permitted and under what conditions, and whether you will be entitled to a full refund, partial refund, credit, or anything at all. You acknowledge and accept that The Renterie has absolutely no involvement, and/or control over, whether you will be permitted any refund or credit for any order, or portion thereof, and you agree to only look to the third-party brand from which you ordered regarding refunds.
The Renterie uses a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to allow you to pay for products purchased through the Services. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement. The Renterie is not responsible for errors by the Payment Processor. By choosing to purchase goods through the Services, you agree to pay through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for your purchase in accordance with the applicable payment terms and you authorize The Renterie, via the applicable Payment Processor, to charge your chosen payment provider. Please be aware that items you are charged may include shipping fees and state and local sales tax. For each purchase, you grant The Renterie the right to revise charges and correct any errors or mistakes that are made regarding the purchase price of your order, even where The Renterie has already received payment from you. For example, in some instances, The Renterie will charge you estimated State and local sales tax, and may revise the sales tax charge as necessary. You agree that (i) each order through the Services are purchases between you and the third-party brand, and not with The Renterie; and (ii) The Renterie is not a party to your payment transaction for such purchases and The Renterie is not a buyer or a seller in connection with all such transactions.
YOU MUST PROVIDE CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR YOUR PROCESSING OF YOUR PAYMENT. YOU MUST PROMPTLY UPDATE ALL INFORMATION TO KEEP YOUR PAYMENT VALID, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE (SUCH AS A CHANGE IN BILLING ADDRESS, CREDIT CARD NUMBER, OR CREDIT CARD EXPIRATION DATE), AND YOU MUST PROMPTLY NOTIFY US IF YOUR FORM OF PAYMENT IS CANCELED (E.G., FOR LOSS OR THEFT) OR IF YOU BECOME AWARE OF A POTENTIAL BREACH OF SECURITY, SUCH AS THE UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OR USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION.

You agree that any dispute between you and The Renterie, and/or you and any third-party brand, related to a purchase(s) made through the Services, can be resolved in its entirety by your receipt of a full refund for all amounts you were charged and paid.

- that repeat offenders will have the infringing material removed from the system and that Company will terminate such content provider’s, member’s or user’s access to the Services.
Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent
If the content provider, member or user believes that the material that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or the content provider, member or user believes that it has the right to post and use such material from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or, pursuant to the law, the content provider, member, or user, must send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:
- A physical or electronic signature of the content provider, member or user;
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- A statement that the content provider, member or user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
- Content provider’s, member’s or user’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, email address, and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s, member’s or user’s address is located, or, if the content provider’s, member’s or user’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Company is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement. If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, Company may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that Company may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Company’s discretion.
