ABOUT THE SERVICE
Lagoom is a platform that provides some functionalities to enable Users to buy, sell, bid, exchange or “swap” (collectively, these actions are referred as “Transactions”) clothes, accessories, apparels, and other applicable products (collectively as “Items). Lagoom allows Users to carry out Transactions of Items and activities as defined and permitted by the Terms of Service.
It is essential to note that Lagoom cannot guarantee the quality, legality, morality, accuracy, and authenticity of the Items included in the platform. One exception for swap, where Lagoom does actively inspect Items that Users wish to include for swap strictly only for quality, with limited extent as defined in our “Swap User Guide” (https://lagoom.app/lagoom-swap-event/ ).
By using the Service, you understand and agree that we are not able to verify your Contributions in the Service. We cannot bear the responsibility for such, unless according to the extent as defined and limited by the applicable law. We recommend Users to communicate with their Transaction partners using features as provided in the Service.
Only Users who are above the legal age limit can use the Service. We only allow private persons to be Users and perform Transactions. Businesses, companies, and other commercial or non-commercial legal entities are eligible to be Users and perform Transactions if they are under separate agreements with Lagoom.
USING OUR SERVICE
When you are listing an Item in the Service, you are obliged to provide accurate description and image(s) of the Item. One particular Item can only be listed once, using the image(s) that are taken by yourself or images which you have the rights or license that allow you to use for this purpose.
We hold the unilateral right to deny or remove any Items from the Service if the owner of the Items (you or other Users) has breached the Terms of Service, if the Items listed in the Service or the images of the Items are inaccurate, unclear, or of insufficient quality.
PRICING AND PAYMENT
As the provider of the Service, we deserve compensations and payments for the Service. For swap, these are stated on the pricelist defined in the Swap User Guide. The pricelist can change at anytime and we reserve the rights to make price changes without any prior notice.
Users who buy or receive Items (referred as “Buyers”) from Transactions have the responsibility to pay, including but not limited to : sales price, import, export, custom duties, value added tax (VAT), Lagoom service fee, Lagoom handling fee, shipping or delivery fees, and other applicable and associated fees and duties.
Users who sell Items (“Sellers”) have the obligation on all income taxes associated to the Transactions of their Items, and to take care all necessary tax reporting to the relevant authorities. While Transactions between Users who are private persons typically will not have any associated VAT, certain Transactions that are considered as commercial may include VAT.
SWAP AND LAGOOM POINTS
As part of the Lagoom offering, we give the opportunity for you to exchange or swap your Items (and therefore is considered as part of Transactions) with other Users. Obtaining Items via swap requires Users to use Lagoom points. Users are eligible to get Lagoom points by, e.g., bringing their Items to any of our service points, or referring new Users to register in the Service. We strictly only accept Items for swap that have been listed in the Service beforehand with the accurate description and images or photos of the Items, and they must be indicated that they are to be submitted for swap in the Service before they are brought to our service points.
By bringing your Items to our service points for swap, you are therefore regarded as Sellers and agree that Lagoom has unilateral rights regarding the acceptance of the Items. Also, by bringing your Items to our service points, we hereby deem you as the owner of the Items thereof, or legally have the necessary rights with regard to the Items and how they are used by you in using the Service. Lagoom will claim ownership of the Items that you submitted in exchange of Lagoom points, provided that the Items are accepted by us according to the terms and conditions set in the Swap User Guide. We will make the best effort in inspecting the Items handed to us for swap, thus we are not able to guarantee the time when Lagoom points will be granted to Users in the Service after the Items have been handed to us and accepted.
We cannot accept any Items which are brought to us for swap via shipping or by any third parties which may or may not be associated to any user account in the Service, except through separate agreements with Lagoom. You acknowledge and agree that we have unilateral rights to define the terms and conditions of swap, in granting Lagoom points and the validity thereof, and to change these terms without any prior notice. Lagoom points may be used to obtain Items available for swap in the Service, but are unable to be traded or exchanged for cash. In case of any abuses of Lagoom points are identified by us or that Lagoom points have been granted on inaccurate or false grounds, the points will be invalidated and any Items ordered through swap using the points thereof may incur cash payments that will be invoiced from the User.
In order for the items you ordered through swap available to you, Buyers shall arrange for payment of all associated costs and fees with Lagoom, and upon the confirmation of payment, the items can be picked up on the designated collection point or shipped. Prior to the payment confirmation, we reserve the right to withhold the Items thereof. Buyers have the right to pickup the ordered items without additional fee during the designated pickup day at our designated service point. Additional service and handling fee will be charged if Buyers wish to pickup at other times, with terms defined in the Swap User Guide. In addition, handling and shipping fees will be incurred when Buyers wish to have the items shipped to their address.
Currently, we are using either Posti or Matkahuolto services to ship the items you ordered during swap. We don’t accept request for any refunds or cancellations, additional details are available in Swap User Guide.
