3. The RTR Service: Rental Not Purchase
You agree and acknowledge that You are renting the Products and that ownership of the Products remains with RTR at all times.
The Service allows You to access the Site and rent Products from RTR in accordance with the TC. You can choose Products to rent from our online selection on the Site or in the Showroom, and have them shipped to Your address or select to retrieve Your items from the Showroom. We reserve the right to limit the number of Products that You may rent at any time. The currently available renting options and rates are outlined in detail on the Site. Also, the current shipping policies governing the delivery and return of Products are detailed on the Site. Delivery time for Products You have selected to rent may vary based upon (a) inventory availability, (b) Your delivery address, (c) when You place an order, and (d) other circumstances impacting delivery. Accordingly, RTR makes no guarantees or warrantees as to actual delivery time or availability. All orders from RTR are made pursuant to a shipment contract; this means that the risk of loss for items shipped passes to You upon our delivery to the carrier. We will send You an email letting You know when Your Product is shipped.
Our liability to You for failure to deliver the Product as ordered is limited to a refund of the Rental Fee excluding insurance and delivery charges as determined by us. See Section 7 below. You agree to waive all other damages, including consequential and punitive damages as set forth in Section 7 below.
With delivery of the Product, we will provide You with either (i) a prepaid, preaddressed shipping sleeve included in the original packaging or (ii) a prepaid shipping label to affix to the original packaging (either referred to herein as the “Return Packaging”), as well as instructions for Your use in returning the Products to RTR.
All RTR orders are final once they have been shipped and returns will not be accepted.
You may request on the Site that Products that You ordered be picked up by You at the Showroom on Your start date by appointment only. Otherwise, all deliveries by RTR are through RTR shipping partners, which may change from time to time at RTR’s sole discretion. The shipping method used will be at the sole discretion of RTR. The Products can be delivered to You until 8:00 pm on Your rental start date. The Products will be professionally cleaned and delivered ready to wear. We clean and inspect each product with the utmost care, but use of the product is at Your own risk and RTR shall not be held liable for any health-related complaints associated with a Product rented from our Site or Showroom. You hereby waive any claim You might have against us with regards to any health-related complaints associated with Product rented from our Site or Showroom.
(c) Use of Products
(i) Receipt of Delivery
You acknowledge that a Secure Shipping Address (defined herein) is highly recommended by our shipping provider(s). A Secure Shipping Address is defined as a location where an individual can physically receive Product(s). In the event that an unsecure shipping address is provided to RTR, RTR does not bear liability for Products left unattended or undeliverable. Furthermore, You acknowledge that providing anything other than a Secure Shipping Address to RTR may result in delivery delays and additional delivery fees for which RTR is not to be held liable, but for which You will be held liable.
Products are rented to You with the understanding that the Products shall be returned in the same condition in which they were received by You (with no damage, alteration or change of any kind) and You will be responsible for, and indemnify RTR against, any loss or damage to the goods while on rental. You agree to treat the Products with great care. You agree to be held responsible for any loss, destruction or damage to the Products due to theft, disappearance, fire, stains or any other cause, no matter the reason or the person responsible. If a product is returned in a damaged or dirty condition that exceeds Normal Wear and Tear, as determined by RTR in its sole discretion, You agree that RTR may charge You and You shall pay, for the price of repairing or replacing the Product, up to the Retail Price of the Product as defined herein, plus a $25.00 administration fee.

(iv) Payment of Retail Value and Collections
We will not charge You for more than the Retail Value plus the Rental Fee, in the aggregate, for any charges arising under this Section 3, excluding collection costs and administration fees. If You pay us the full Retail Value under this Section 3 and You still possess the Product, the Product is Yours to keep, though on an “AS IS” basis without warranty of any kind. For the avoidance of doubt, the limitations of this clause shall not apply to the Rental Fee, which is charged separately from, and in addition to, any charges for the Retail Value pursuant to this Section 3(c).

RTR will charge Your credit or debit card the amount of the Rental Fee on the date Your order is made. If the Product is not returned on the Return Date, Late Fees will accrue per day and RTR will charge Your credit or debit card the amount of the Late Fee up to and on the date the Product is received by RTR. If the Product is not received on the 7th day after the Return Date, RTR will consider the Product lost and You agree to pay the Retail Price.
If RTR does not receive payment from Your credit or debit card provider, if Your credit or debit card expires or is rejected, or if Your credit or debit card reverses a charge, You agree to pay all amounts due upon demand. If You do not pay the amounts You owe to us when due, then we may institute collection procedures or we may seek payment by another method including a mailed statement. You agree to pay our costs of collection, including (without limitation) attorneys’ fees. RTR reserves the right to take all steps necessary to collect amounts due from You, including but not limited to using third party collection agencies. RTR reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.
You are solely responsible for any and all fees charged to Your credit or debit card by the issuer, bank, or financial institution including, but not limited to, overdraft, insufficient funds, and over the credit limit fees.

If You do not bring them to our attention within 90 days, You agree that You waive Your right to dispute such problems or discrepancies.
All RTR credits are valid from one (1) year after the date issued, with no exceptions. Delivery charges, any taxes, damage charges, or any other additional fees cannot be paid with credits. Unused credits will be forfeited if Your RTR account is terminated for any reason in accordance with Section 10 below. Your account must be in good standing to be eligible to redeem Your credits. You cannot exchange credits for any other form of currency--credits have no cash value. RTR reserves the right to change the TC at our discretion, and may terminate or amend the credits program at any time.

You may cancel Your order by contacting customer service at email@example.com and if RTR has not yet shipped Your Product, RTR will issue You a full refund in the form of a store credit minus a $20.00 cancellation fee.
