Terms and conditions of the user that deviate from these terms and conditions do not apply. Users of Circled Wardrobe's services agree that in case of doubt, the terms and conditions of Circled Wardrobe are to be assumed in case of use by them, even if the terms and conditions of the user remain unchallenged.

For users who (also) use the services of Circled Wardrobe as Lenders, the special terms of use for Lenders in the appendix to these Terms of Service apply in addition.

2. Subject matter

2.1 Circled Wardrobe offers an online platform for brokering clothing and accessories between users (hereinafter referred to as the "Service"). In doing so, Circled Wardrobe itself does not act as a Lender and does not become a contractual party to the rental agreements to be concluded. These are concluded exclusively between individual users and Lenders.

2.2 "Users" within the meaning of these Terms of Use are all natural persons who use Circled Wardrobe's Service for information purposes or to initiate or conclude rental agreements, including as Lenders.

3. Use of the Service / Registration / User Account

3.1 Access to the service (in particular the search for rental objects) is generally possible without registration. Registration is only required for the use of certain functions of the service and in any case for use as a Lender or for the conclusion of a rental agreement as a Renter. 

3.2 By registering or otherwise using the service (e.g. making booking requests), a contract on the use of the service is concluded between the user and Circled Wardrobe. Registration and creation of a user account as well as the use of the service as a Renter are free of charge. Minors and other natural persons, legal entities and associations of persons without or with limited legal capacity are not permitted to use the service. A user account is not transferable.

3.3 The user is obligated to truthfully and completely provide the data collected during registration and in the context of booking inquiries - insofar as it concerns mandatory data that is marked accordingly. In case of a change of the collected data after registration, the user has to update his information in his user account immediately or - if this is not possible - to inform Circled Wardrobe about changes without delay.

Circled Wardrobe will verify the identity of a user via an appropriate, adequate verification procedure. Until the verification is successfully completed, the user account will not be released by Circled Wardrobe.

3.4 By submitting the registration form, the User makes an offer to enter into a User Agreement with Circled Wardrobe, confirms that he/she has read and agrees to the Terms and Conditions, and further confirms that he/she is not excluded from using the Service pursuant to Section 3.2. Circled Wardrobe reviews registration requests and reserves the right to refuse the User's registration without giving reasons.

3.5 If Circled Wardrobe accepts the registration, the User will receive a confirmation message summarizing the User's key information once again. To complete the registration, the User must confirm the confirmation message according to the instructions contained therein. Upon receipt of the confirmation message, the user agreement is concluded between Circled Wardrobe and the User.

3.6 When registering, the user specifies a user name ("access data"). User names whose use violates the rights of third parties, in particular rights to a name or trademark, or which are otherwise illegal or contrary to public morality, are not permitted. The user must keep the access data secret and protect it from access by unauthorized third parties. If the user has lost the access data or if he discovers or suspects that his access data is being used by a third party, he must inform Circled Wardrobe immediately by e-mail or contact form.

3.7 The user is aware that declarations within the scope of the contractual relationship (e.g., confirmation messages, changes to the GTC or other notifications) may be sent to him by e-mail.

3.8 Circled Wardrobe is entitled to immediately block the user account,

  • if false information was provided when registering as a user or sending a booking request;

  • in the event of loss or suspected misuse of the access data by a third party;

  • if the user has otherwise violated the GTC; or

  • if there is any other important reason.

In the event of a blocking of the user account, the affected user is prohibited from registering again with Circled Wardrobe with the same or other user data (alias names, etc.) and from opening a new user account until Circled Wardrobe has given its express prior consent.

3.9 Circled Wardrobe has the right to edit, prepare and adapt offers and contents of users in such a way that they can be displayed on all end devices. Each User is responsible for viewing the complete content of an offer on the platform before making a rental decision.

4. User ratings and comments

Users may rate and comment on the Lenders and the Transaction, depending on the technical conditions of the Service.

5. Conclusion of rental contracts and general Renter obligations

5.1 The User first submits a binding booking request for the conclusion of a rental agreement to the Lender via the corresponding button ("Buy"). Before that, the Lender has the possibility to contact the user via the corresponding button ("Members Chat") and to determine the possible rental period with him. Circled Wardrobe transmits the data entered by the user in the booking request (period and any other details as well as the personal data disclosed in the booking request form) to the Lender. Circled Wardrobe or the Lender himself then contacts the Renter and sends the Renter either a rejection or a confirmation of the conclusion of a rental agreement. The Lender also has the additional option of sending a message to the Renter via the corresponding button ("Members Chat").

5.2 Circled Wardrobe accepts payments from the Renter as the Lender's representative on the Lender's behalf. A rental agreement is concluded exclusively between the User and the Lender. The present GTC shall apply to the rental agreement, unless otherwise expressly stipulated on the respective product detail page in permissible cases.

5.3 The information about the rental objects comes from the Lenders. Possible ratings and comments from other users can only be considered as a respective subjective, private opinion or recommendation and should not be understood as a basis for business when concluding contracts, but at most as an indication of the quality and reliability of the respective Lenders and rental objects.

5.4 Circled Wardrobe makes every effort to prevent fraudulent use of the service. Unfortunately, however, it cannot be ruled out that this nevertheless happens in individual cases. It is recommended to establish the identity of the other party separately before exchanging services in cases of doubt.

5.5 The Renter is obliged to treat the rental object with care and to return it to the Lender no later than the day after the end of the rental period. In doing so, a shipping option must be selected that enables tracking of the delivery. The tracking number is to be transmitted to the Lender by the Renter without delay. The costs for the return shipment shall be borne by the Renter.

5.6 If a Renter has damaged a rental item or soiled it beyond normal wear and tear, this must be reported to the Lender immediately. The renter and Lender will then discuss how the incident will be resolved. If the rental item has been damaged more severely (high cost of repair or if the rental item needs to be replaced) the renter must pay for the damage entirely on their own (repair, cleaning, replacement). In any case, Circled Wardrobe will not be held responsible for the entire cost of the damage.

6. Use of personal data

Personal data, especially contact data of others, which are included in the service of Circled Wardrobe or of which the user otherwise gains knowledge in the course of using the service, may be used by Renters and Lenders exclusively for the purpose of initiating and processing rental contracts. In particular, it is prohibited to use corresponding data for advertising purposes and to send unsolicited e-mail, fax or postal mail advertising to the person concerned or to make unsolicited telephone contact with him.
