What You Need To Know About Trove's Terms Of Service
If you are like most consumers, you never read the terms of service (TOS) for any online service. Even when they send an email letting you know the terms have changed, you ignore it. Who wants to read through all that legalese? DoNotPay's online service wants to read the legalese and let you know if the company has violated its terms. They offer services for companies like Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.
In this post, we focus on Trove's Terms of Service.
Trove's Terms of Service
Trove prepares used clothing from luxury and premium brands such as Levi, Patagonia, and lululemon for resale. These name brands buy back used clothing, deliver them to Trove, and Trove prepares them for resale. Consumers can access the resale sites through the Trove website or directly through the brand's website. Their terms of service and privacy policies are current as of 2021.
Terms of Service
As with most online services, Trove's terms of service are based on an individual's use of the website. Consumers who use the website indicate that they accept the TOS through their actions. If people disagree with the TOS, they should exit the website. Any complaints or violations regarding Trove's online activities will be addressed under the laws of the State of California.
Not Responsible For
A few things the company is not responsible for include:
- Failing to perform because of external events such as acts of God, public enemies, or quarantine restrictions.
- Providing updated TOS or ensuring that the TOS is complete and accurate.
- Third-party tools or sites accessed through the Trove website.
- Uninterrupted, secure, or error-free service.
Trove's terms of service recommend that all users review the third-party TOS before using their tools or websites.
Has the Right to
Some actions the company has a right to include:
- Modify or discontinue the service without notice.
- Refuse any order placed through the site.
- Use any submissions, whether comments, testimonials, or suggestions, without restriction.
The TOS also includes a standard paragraph regarding indemnification.
What to Look For in Trove's Terms of Service
Rather than read the entire TOS, you can look for specific keywords or phrases that highlight the most critical aspects for review, such as:
- Third Parties. Does the website embed third-party links? Does the company share or sell personal data? What protections, if any, are provided for third-party links?
- Opt-Out. Can you opt-out of or change privacy settings? Are you forced to exit the site if you disagree with the terms?
- Capitalized Sections. Sections written in all caps indicate information that should be read.
- Content. Do you have control over any content such as comments, testimonials, or other submissions?
However, the quick review doesn't guarantee that you've looked at everything.
What if the TOS is Violated?
Because arbitration is not an option, any violation must be pursued through the California Courts; however, the company may be willing to settle out of court. Before taking legal action, you should write to the company informing them of the violation and suggesting settlement terms. If the company does not respond, your next step is to sue through Small Claims Court.
