Terms and Conditions
Welcome to Galleri SoHo. We’re delighted to have you here. Please make yourself at home and enjoy your time, but we kindly request that you adhere to our community guidelines.
1. Acceptance of These Terms
Please note that Section 11, titled “Disputes with Galleri SoHo,” contains an arbitration clause and a class action waiver. By agreeing to these Terms, you consent to resolve any disputes through binding individual arbitration, relinquishing your right to have such disputes decided by a judge or jury, and waiving participation in class actions, class arbitrations, or representative actions.*
These Terms outline your rights and responsibilities when using gallerisoho.se, our mobile apps, and other services provided by us, collectively referred to as “Services.” Therefore, it is crucial to carefully review these Terms. By using any of our Services, even simply browsing our websites, you indicate your agreement with these Terms. If you do not agree with these Terms, you should refrain from using our Services. If you agree, please continue reading.
2. Reference to Other Documents
Galleri SoHo Services connect people worldwide, both online and offline, enabling the creation, sale, and purchase of unique goods. Below, you’ll find a helpful guide explaining the specific rules relevant to you, based on your use of the Services:
- Our House Rules for Sellers: If you list items for sale through our Services, these policies apply to you. They can be found here.
- Our House Rules for Buyers: If you use our Services to browse or shop, these policies apply to you. They can be found here.
- Our House Rules for Third Parties: These policies apply to intellectual property owners, home stylists, affiliates, Curators, and anyone requesting information from Galleri SoHo.
All of these policies are integral parts of our Terms, so it’s essential to review those relevant to your use. Of course, we encourage you to read the entire document as it applies to all users.
3. Your Privacy
Both Galleri SoHo and sellers process members’ personal information (such as buyer names, email addresses, and delivery addresses) and are considered separate and independent data controllers of buyer personal information under EU law. This means that each party is responsible for the personal information it processes while providing the Services. For instance, if a seller accidentally discloses a buyer’s name and email address while fulfilling another buyer’s order, the seller, not Galleri SoHo, is responsible for that unauthorized disclosure.
However, if Galleri SoHo and sellers are jointly considered data controllers of buyer personal information, and if Galleri SoHo incurs expenses due to your actions as a joint data controller of buyer personal information, you agree to indemnify Galleri SoHo for these expenses. For more information on your indemnification obligations, please refer to Section 9, titled “Indemnification (or What Happens If You Get Us Sued).”
4. Your Account with Galleri SoHo
To access some of our Services, you’ll need to create a Galleri SoHo account. Here are a few important rules regarding Galleri SoHo accounts:
A. Age Requirement: You must be 18 years or older to use our Services. Minors aged 13 to 17 may use our Services through an account owned by a parent or legal guardian with appropriate permission and direct supervision. Children under 13 are not permitted to use Galleri SoHo or the Services. You are responsible for any account activity conducted by a minor on your account, and you should consider limiting a minor’s access to online material.
B. Honesty: Provide accurate information about yourself. Using false information or impersonating another person or company through your account is prohibited.
C. Account Name: If you choose not to use your full name for your account, please avoid using offensive, vulgar, infringing, or otherwise Terms-violating language.
D. Account Responsibility: You are solely responsible for all activity on your account. If you share an account with others, the person whose financial information is on the account will be responsible for all activity. If you register as a business entity, you personally guarantee that you have the authority to agree to the Terms on behalf of the business. Accounts are non-transferable.
