TERMS & CONDITIONS
Last updated January 23, 2021
These terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) apply to the purchase and sale of Products (“Product” or “Products”) from through www.runwaybuy.com (the “Website”) as well as orders placed through our mobile applications (“App”), Runway Buy team members, or at a RUNWAY BUY Inc . By placing an order for such Product(s), you agree to be bound by, and accept, these Terms and Conditions.
1. ORDER ACCEPTANCE AND CANCELLATION
Your receipt of an electronic, or other form of, order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept, decline, or limit your order for any reason, whether or not you have been charged. If your order has been cancelled or limited, the applicable amount any payment made pursuant to that order will be refunded to the original form of payment. If you have been charged and your order is canceled, we will promptly issue a refund to your original form of payment in the amount of the charge and notify you that your order was canceled. Orders placed using Rewards Points (see below) or site credit will be refunded if the order is canceled, and the Rewards Points or site credit will be available for use promptly once the order is canceled.
2. PAYMENT TERMS
Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and, unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, shall be as follows:
All orders are subject to verification for security reasons. If you are contacted for verification, you will have 48 hours to complete the verification process. If you do not respond after such time, you will be notified, and the order will be canceled and refunded in the original payment method.
Charges for shipping and handling will be made in accordance with our then-current shipping policies, as described below. Payments made on debit/credit cards in currency other than US Dollars will be calculated using currency conversion on www.xe.com on the day of the transaction. You agree that Runway Buy is not responsible for any credit shortages due to currency conversion rates.
If you preorder Products, you will be required to pay either the full purchase price or a 50% deposit of the amount due as an initial payment at the time you place your order, exclusive of shipping fees, duties, and taxes. In the case of an initial payment, we will charge you the remaining amount due, plus shipping fees, and any taxes or duties owed at such time as the Product is ready for shipment. We will first apply any available site credit in your account to the balance owed, and if you do not have any site credit or your site credit is not enough to cover the amount owed, we may charge the remaining balance to the same method of payment as used for the initial payment or to any active payment methods, including credit card(s), on your account at the time the payment is due. If your payment information has changed, please contact email@example.com with your updated payment information. If the remaining payment cannot be processed, your order will be cancelled, and you will be issued a site credit for any amount that you have paid for that Product.
Please be aware that because of the “pre-orders” or “back-orders” nature of such transactions, you should expect a wait period of approximately two to four (2 to 4) months between the date you place your order and the date that the Product is ready for shipment. The estimated delivery window will be noted on the Product page of the respective or preorder Product page.
If you order Products available for immediate shipping from our site and or designer’s inventory, you will be required to pay the full amount due, plus shipping fees and any taxes and/or duties associated with the Product at the time you place your order.
3. CHANGES IN PRODUCTS AND PRICING
We are constantly updating and revising our offerings of Products, and we may discontinue Products at any time without notice. All pricing for the Products is subject to change. For all of our prices and Products, we reserve the right to make adjustments due to changing market conditions, Product discontinuation, manufacturer price changes, errors in advertisements, and other extenuating circumstances.
We attempt to be as accurate as possible with Product descriptions and prices. However, we do not warrant that Product descriptions or prices are accurate. In the event that we discover an error in the pricing or description of a Product, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for the Product. We shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit or debit card has been charged.
If you order a Product that was incorrectly priced, you will be contacted by a Customer Care representative and given the option to purchase the Product at the correct price, or to cancel your order and receive a refund for the amount that you have paid as soon as possible, in accordance with our refund policy below. If you order a Product that was incorrectly priced, your order will be canceled and we shall issue a refund as soon as possible, in accordance with our refund policy below.
4. SHIPPING FEES, TAXES AND INTERNATIONAL DUTIES
Product prices displayed on the Website and on the App do not include taxes (including any value added tax (“VAT”)), duties, or shipping charges.
For orders shipping within the US, sales tax will be charged at checkout on orders shipping to states where sales tax is required to be collected by law for online purchases. The list of those states may change from time to time. For a list of states for which we collect sales tax, please see our FAQS . For Products, this tax will be charged at such time as the Product is ready for shipment. For all other Products, this tax will be charged at the time you place your order for the Product. No import duties will be applied to orders shipped within the United States.
For international customers, applicable local taxes (including such taxes as VAT), import taxes, and duties will be determined, displayed, in the aggregate, and charged at checkout (unless you are shipping to destinations on a DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) basis, as discussed further, below). All other non-customs-related local taxes (other than VAT) are the customer’s responsibility, and RUNWAY BUY Inc is not responsible for reporting or paying additional local taxes to states, such as any use tax. Any taxes and duties are calculated on the total merchandise value, after discounts or promotional codes and/or promotional site credits (“Promotions”) have been applied.
When shipping to countries outside of the US, most destinations are delivered on a DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) basis, which means relevant import taxes and duties are calculated at checkout and processed by RUNWAY BUY Inc once your order ships. If you are shipping on a DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) basis, import taxes and duties will not be paid through RUNWAY BUY Inc. Instead, the shipping carrier will invoice you upon delivery of your merchandise. If you are shipping outside the United States on a DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) basis, no taxes or duties will be charged by RUNWAY BUY Inc. This detail will be noted at checkout and on the confirmation email sent once order has been placed, and as the recipient, you will be responsible and liable for all import duties, customs and local sales taxes levied by the country to which you are shipping. Payment of these amounts will be necessary to release your order from customs on arrival. For a list of DDP and DDU countries please see our FAQS.
Orders shipped from our United States warehouses, designer and boutique partners will be sent via UPS, DHL, WorldNet, or another carrier. We ship the majority of our Products worldwide from our partner warehouses in the United States and Canada. For and preorder Products, all relevant shipping fees, local taxes, import taxes, and duties will be charged at such time as the Product is ready for shipment. For all other Products, such shipping fees, taxes, and duties will be charged at the time you place your order for the Product. The costs of shipping and any import taxes, and duties paid are non-refundable.
5. SHIPPING POLICY
We offer a variety of shipping options to meet your shipping needs. Please check the shipping options at checkout for specific delivery options and fees. No C.O.D. orders can be accepted. For more information, please refer to our SHIPPING FAQ .
Please note that the posted shipping time frame, if provided, may vary from item to item. The posted shipping time frame is contingent upon credit card approval and may be delayed should we experience difficulties in obtaining authorization.
These shipping terms, including the terms set forth in our Shipping Guidelines, are accepted by you by placing an order with us.
All orders are dispatched with ‘No Signature Required’ and may be left at a residence deemed safe by the delivery company. RUNWAY BUY Inc is not responsible for any loss or liability or damage that may result from leaving your package at the shipping address without a signature.
RUNWAY BUY Inc is also not responsible for any international shipping delays caused by the customs clearance process.

All copyright, designs, trademarks and all other intellectual property visible on the Website, including RUNWAY BUY Inc Software and all HTML and other code contained on our Website, is the sole property of RUNWAY BUY Inc or their respective partner designers and boutiques. You are permitted to use the content on the Website only as expressly authorized by RUNWAY BUY Inc and/or its third-party licensors. Any reproduction or redistribution of the above listed Content without permission is prohibited and may result in civil and criminal penalties, where “Content” is defined as data files, graphics, text, photographs, drawings, logos, images, sounds, music, video or audio files on the Website.
You may not modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, commercially exploit, create derivative works from, transfer, or sell any Content, software, Products, or services contained within the Website. You may not use the Website, or any of its Content, to further any commercial purpose, including any advertising or advertising revenue generation activity on your own Site.
7. PRICE ADJUSTMENT POLICY
RUNWAY BUY Inc will honor price adjustments on Products purchased within a 14-day period prior to the start of a sale. Please note that the Product has to still be available on the site in the same size originally purchased. All approved price adjustments will be issued in the form of site credit and the Product will be a Final Sale. If you wish to request a price adjustment in accordance with this policy, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
RUNWAY BUY Inc is only able to honor price adjustments at the initial markdown and will be unable to honor them with subsequent markdowns or changes in prices, if any. RUNWAY BUY Inc will not price match any sale or discount prices with any other retailers, including affiliates.
8. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
In no event shall we or our designer partner and boutiques have any obligations or liabilities to you or any other person for loss of profits, for loss of business or use, or for incidental, punitive, special or consequential damages, whether based on contract, tort (including negligence), Products liability, or any other theory or form of action, even if we have been advised of the possibility thereof, arising out of or in connection with the sale, delivery, or use of the Products.
Our sole and entire maximum liability (and the liability of our suppliers) for any reason, and your sole and exclusive remedy for any cause whatsoever, shall be limited to the actual amount paid by you for the Products you have ordered through our Website. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for certain damages, so the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you to the extent such jurisdiction’s law is applicable to your purchase of Products.

Refunds are generally processed within 4-6 weeks of when the returned item is received at our designer or boutique warehouse.
For international orders, the costs of shipping and any import taxes and duties paid are non-refundable.
RUNWAY BUY Inc monitors the number and condition of Products returned and orders cancelled by customers.

Products that are received damaged or become damaged by a manufacturing fault within six (6) months of purchase are considered faulty.
