Terms of Service
Updated: [March 23, 2021]
ShopStyle Inc. (“ShopStyle,” “we,” “us,” “our”) owns and operates the ShopStyle shopping networks, network of websites including https://www.shopstyle.co.uk and related mobile and software applications (the “Services”).
ShopStyle reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify the Terms of Service at any time by providing you with a notice on the ShopStyle website, or by sending you a notice via email. You shall be responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any such modifications. Use of the Service by you following such notice constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions of the Terms of Service as modified. If you do not agree to the new terms, you should stop using the Services. You can also terminate your relationship with us at any time by closing your Account.
ShopStyle receives compensation for referring buyers to the retailers, brands, merchants, and other partners participating in the Services (“Retailers”). Compensation received by ShopStyle may play a part in whether Retailers and products appear on our Services, where they are placed, and how we promote them to you. The Services provided at the sole discretion of ShopStyle and subject to your compliance with this Agreement. The Services, and their Contents are intended solely for your personal, non-commercial use (except as specifically and expressly agreed in writing by ShopStyle in connection with a specific feature of the Service only) and may only be used in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
2. ELIGIBILITY TO USE SERVICES
You must be 18 years or older to use our Services. This Agreement is void where prohibited by law, and the right to access and use the Services is revoked in such jurisdictions. By accessing the Services, you represent and warrant to ShopStyle that: (i) you are an individual (i.e., not a corporation) at least 18 years old; (ii) you are of legal age to form a binding contract; (ii) all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful and you will maintain the accuracy of such information; (iv) you are legally permitted to use and access the Services and take full responsibility for your access, selection and use of the Services.
ShopStyle may offer you the ability to create a ShopStyle account (“Account”) by registering and selecting a password and username to use certain Services. Creating an Account will enable you to receive personalized sale alerts and shop exclusive offers based on information you provide, including favorite Retailers, products, influencers, looks and searches you save. You may not select or use the Account belonging to another person. Each individual person is limited to one Account. You shall provide ShopStyle with accurate, complete, and updated registration information. Any failure to comply with this provision may result in immediate termination of your account. ShopStyle reserves the right to refuse registration of, or cancel a ShopStyle Account in its discretion.
If you are accessing the Services through a third party site or service (such as Facebook, Google, or Apple) (collectively, “Third-Party Platforms”), ShopStyle may require that your ShopStyle login credentials be the same as your login credentials for such Third-Party Platforms. By providing your Third-Party Platform login credentials to ShopStyle, you are consenting to have the information in those accounts transmitted into your ShopStyle account. You shall only use Third-Party Platform accounts owned by you and not by any other person or entity. Any use of Third-Party Platforms to create and access your Account is subject to the terms and conditions and privacy policies of such third parties.

Any use of your username and password will be deemed to be your use, and ShopStyle is entitled to act on instructions received under your password. If there is a breach of security through your Account, you will immediately change your password and notify us of such breach. You agree that, unless you have first notified us immediately of any such breach, we should assume that any instruction transmitted using your username and password is yours and has been authorized by you, and we will have no obligation to inquire into the propriety of such instruction.
