The standard rental period is subject to the agreement between the Owner and the Renter. If the rental period is modified, please reach out to Curtsy to prevent any late fees. The lifetime of a transaction, governed by a sequence of transaction statuses, with regard to a rental item, is as follows:
- requested = a dress has been requested by a Renter
- confirmed = Owner accepts request of rental, within 12 hours of request
- declined = Owner declines request, within 12 hours of request. Transaction lifetime has ended.

- return with claim = the Owner indicates that the dress has been returned but is severely damaged, in which Curtsy will confirm the integrity of the claim and, if the damage is significant as determined at Curtsy’s own discretion, we will charge the Renter 100% of the Retail Value, 80% of which will be disbursed to the Owner.
We reserve the right to restrict, cancel, alter, or prohibit any rentals of items for any reason, including availability, maintenance, and other extenuating circumstances, without notice or warning.
You agree to treat the items with great care. You are responsible for loss, destruction or damage to the Products due to theft, mysterious disappearance, fire, major stains or any other cause, other than normal wear and tear. Normal wear and tear includes: minor stains, rips, missing beads, and stuck zippers. If you return a rented item that is damaged beyond normal wear and tear, then you agree that Curtsy will charge you, and you shall pay, for the price for repairing or replacing the Product, as mentioned previously, up to the Retail Value for the Product. This charge will applied to the credit or debit card we have for you on file. If we are unable to charge the credit card on file or otherwise collect payment from you, you agree to remit payment for any damage to the Item for rent to the applicable Owner or to Curtsy.

Any additional shipping fees are upon the agreement of the Owner and Renter. Curtsy cannot be held accountable for any loss, damage or unfulfillment of the service provider chosen for any shipping services.

Owners must check items for any damages, stains, etc. when items are returned. If there are any issues, please contact Curtsy for further evaluation of your claim.
Payment and Processing
All rental transactions take place on the Curtsy. To receive payment when your item is rented, please ensure your bank account information is updated on your profile in the “User Settings” section of the application.

As an Owner, you may list items for rent. You are responsible for taking pictures that accurately portray the item to be rented, and responding promptly to requests and to determine a good time to drop off or have the Renter pick up the item at your agreed location.

Condition of Items
You are required to ensure that your item is in clean, wearable condition upon renting it out to a Renter. Failure to provide Renters with clothing or other wearables in dry-cleaned or hand-washed condition could result in a claim against your payout.
Finance and Conduct
You understand and agree that Curtsy does not act as an insurer or as a contracting agent for you as an Owner.

You acknowledge and agree that, as an Owner, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions.
The Owners of the items are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available any Item for rent reserved through Curtsy. Curtsy is not responsible for this. If you, as a Renter, choose to enter into a transaction with an Owner for the rental of an Item, you acknowledge and agree that you will be required to enter into an agreement with any rules and restrictions associated with such Item for rent imposed by the Owner. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Curtsy, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that Curtsy is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations hereunder, Curtsy disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding the fact that Curtsy is not a party to the agreement between you and the Owner, Curtsy acts as the Owner’s payment agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Owner. You agree to pay Curtsy for the full Listing Price as well as any additional late fees or damage claims for any booking requested in connection with your Curtsy Account if such fees are claimed by the applicable Owner and later verified by Curtsy. In order to establish a booking pending the applicable Owner’s confirmation of your requested booking, you understand and agree that Curtsy, on behalf of the Owner, reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to obtain a pre-authorization via your credit card for the any such fees. Once Curtsy receives confirmation of your booking from the applicable Owner or confirms any claims related to delayed return or damage, Curtsy will collect the Total Fees in accordance with the terms and conditions of these Terms and the pricing terms set forth in the applicable Listing. Please note that Curtsy cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Member by his or her own bank related to Curtsy’s collection of the Total Fees, and Curtsy disclaims all liability in this respect.

Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the United States of America, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in the state or district of your residence as specified on Curtsy for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.
Curtsy does not own the items; Curtsy merely acts as third-party remediator for our lenders and Renters in the event of a dispute or occasion where a neutral (third) party is needed. Examples include, but are not limited to: disputes regarding pricing of the item, condition/damage of the item, refunds and cancellations, etc.
You and Curtsy agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof, or to the use of the application (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Curtsy are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Curtsy otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void.
The failure of Curtsy to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Curtsy. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
If you have any questions about these Terms or any App Store Sourced Application, please contact Curtsy at [email protected].
