Terms of Use

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

These Terms of Use (referred to as the “Terms”) are a binding agreement between you and Galleri SoHo. If you reside in Europe or elsewhere, this agreement is with Ghada Zaky Enskild firm, operating under the brand name Galleri SoHo. Throughout these Terms, we’ll refer to the company as “Galleri SoHo.”

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.

  • Our House Rules for Sellers: If you list items for sale through our Services, these policies apply to you. They can be found here.

3. Your Privacy

We understand that your personal information is important to you, and it’s equally important to us. Our Privacy Policy outlines how we use your information when you use our Services. By using our Services, you agree to the processing of your information as detailed in the Privacy Policy, which you can access here.

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).”
