StyleSwap is operated by the London Style Network Limited, with registered address at 75 Netherwood Road, London, England, W14 0BP and with number 12213084 (“StyleSwap”, “we” or “us”).

These terms together with the Privacy Policy together with any other documents referred to in these terms, set out the basis on which you can use the Platform, whether as a guest or registered user (“Terms“). We may update these Terms (and the documents referred to in them) from time to time and we will notify you of any material changes to these Terms by posting a notice on the homepage.

  1. Your relationship with us

StyleSwap does not sell any items itself, but provides a platform through which buyer and sellers can agree to buy and sell clothing directly between themselves (“Products”). StyleSwap does not control Products and therefore  does not give any commitment relating to the existence, quality, safety, or genuineness of such items, the truth or accuracy of any picture or description of the Products or any other content made available by users, the ability of sellers to sell Products, the actions or non-actions of buyers and sellers, and StyleSwap has no liability in this respect. This disclaimer does not affect any statutory rights you may have against a seller (if they are a business).

StyleSwap’s Platform is for private users not acting in any business or professional capacity, and you confirm that you shall not use the Platform in any business or professional capacity (unless otherwise agreed by us in writing).

Any agreement for and/or purchase of a Product is made solely between you and the seller. Complaints, questions and claims related to a Product should be directed to the seller.
