You agree and acknowledge that through CHARLOTTE’S CLOSET, LLC. you are borrowing the Products and that ownership of the Products remains with CHARLOTTE’S CLOSET, LLC. at all times. We lend our Products only to adults who may borrow products with a credit card or other approved payment method or to a minor who acts through their parent or guardian. As such, you represent that you are 18 years old or older, or that you are the parent or guardian of a minor.
The number of Products that can be borrowed by you at any particular time depends on the products you are borrowing. For more information about our various products, please visit our page at https:// charlottes-closet.com. All products limit the maximum number of Products in your possession at any given time, in accordance with the selected products.

- THE CHARLOTTE’S CLOSET, LLC. SERVICE The Services allows borrowers (referred to as "Borrowers") to access the Website and borrow Products from CHARLOTTE’S CLOSET, LLC. in accordance with the Borrower's selected products and these terms and conditions. With payment of the fee, the Borrower can choose Products to borrow from our online selection, and have them shipped to the Borrower's address. The specific rules that govern the borrowing of Products vary and will depend on the particular products you select; these rules are outlined on our website. We limit the number of Products that a Borrower may borrow at any one time, and such limitation depends on your particular products. Keep in mind that for purposes of determining the number of items you may borrow at any particular time, Products are considered borrowed and in your possession while in transit and until the Products are delivered to us. The available options are outlined in detail on the Website. Delivery time for a Product a Borrower selects to borrow may vary based upon inventory availability, the Borrower's delivery address, the time when a Borrower places an order, the number of items the Borrower already has in their possession, and other circumstances impacting delivery. As such, CHARLOTTE’S CLOSET, LLC. is unable to make any guarantees as to actual delivery time. The risk of loss for Products shipped passes to the Borrower upon the delivery of the Product(s) to the Borrower at his or her address. Likewise, we will bear the risk of loss once you deliver the Products(s) to our chosen carrier with our return labels affixed to the products. In order to demonstrate that this shift of liability has occurred, you must record the tracking number of the return envelope. Without this information, the assumption of liability will remain with you until the Product(s) are delivered to CHARLOTTE’S CLOSET, LLC. At all other times, you bear the risk of loss and are responsible for the Product(s).
We reserve the right to require the return of any or all borrowed Products in the Borrower's possession in the event the Borrower fails to make required payments on time or in the event other factors arise which, in our sole discretion, increase the risk of non-timely payment by the Borrower.
- SHIPPING, ORDERS AND RETURNS Subject to the limitation that you may have only a certain number of Products in your possession at any one time depending on your products, you may order and return Products as many times as you wish while you are a Borrower, provided that this is permitted based on the products ordered. In addition, with every Product shipped to you we include a return label for which postage has already been paid, so that you can return Products with absolutely no additional shipping costs. If, however, you lose the return shipping label, you will be responsible for shipping costs. If you order a Product while you are in possession of the maximum number of Products that are permitted based on the Products borrowed we will wait until you have returned one or more of the Products before shipping out the next Product. If you lose the return packaging and label, you are responsible to return items by expected due date at your own expense and providing CHARLOTTE’S CLOSET, LLC. with a tracking number. Returns should be sent to the following address:
14 Vanderventer Suite L5
Port Washington NY 11050
