Services

3.1     The primary service offered by this Site is the advertising of Listings of Space made available by Hosts. As a User these Listings are free to be viewed and can be booked at any time. At the time of a Booking by a User they will be required to provide personal information such as ; name, billing address and contact telephone. This information is required for security purposes and also in the event of Luggage that has been unclaimed to be repatriated to the respective User Upon finalising the Booking through the Cart the User will be prompted to enter their card details via the secure payment processor. The payment processor for this Site is Stripe. Stripe will conduct automatic anti-fraud checks before the payment has been processed. Further information about this can be found at www.stripe.com/radar. All information transmitted across this Site is secured and encrypted. This can be confirmed by the green padlock and ‘Secure’ icons in the address bar of this Site. Improper or fraudulent use of a bank card or bank account details is a criminal offence. The specifics of LEFTIT’s involvement in these matters is detailed in section 3.3.

3.2     It is the Users responsibility to ensure that at the time of booking, they have selected the correct; Host, date(s), number of items of Luggage. LEFTIT will provide opening and closing hours of Hosts alongside Listings. These hours are correct at the time they were uploaded to this Site. LEFTIT shall not be responsible for changes made to the operating hours by the Host or due to any unforeseen circumstance where a Host has closed their premises early or closed their premises permanently. In the event that a Booking has been created but the Host has been unable to fulfill their responsibility to store their Luggage, LEFTIT will either issue a refund for fees paid to the Host or may offer an alternative Booking with another Host where available in that City. Where a User has breached the Terms of this Site, LEFTIT reserves the right to withhold the repayment of any fees paid by the User. LEFTIT will provide the Customer with a LEFTIT Booking reference number which will be auditable to the Booking created on our Site. An email will also be sent to the email address that was input at the time of the Booking. Details of the Booking will also be sent the Host for their reference.

3.3     Member accounts created on the LEFTIT platform by Users, are subject to the Terms of this Site. Passwords created shall be responsibility of the Member to keep private. Where a Member believes their account has been compromised whereby an unauthorised third party has obtained their account password the Member is to contact LEFTIT at the soonest opportunity at info@leftit.co.uk. Where a Member is believed to have falsified information during the registration process, LEFTIT reserves the right to delete and remove the User from the Site. Where the activities or information provided by the User enters into the realms of criminality due to fraud, theft or other dishonesty or electronic offences LEFTIT will give it’s full co-operation into any police investigation into the matter. This may include full disclosure of personal, address and or financial information provided to LEFTIT upon production of a lawful warrant or court order.

Booking through this Site is for strict compliance. Users may not store their Luggage with Hosts without a Booking first being created through this Site.

3.4     Hosts will not accept cash payments. Where it is found a customer has attempted to create a Booking by approaching a Host directly to arrange Luggage Storage without going through the LEFTIT platform, this will be seen as a breach of these Terms and will nullify the complimentary insurance cover that would have otherwise been available to compliant Customers. Further details of the insurance policy are covered in section 7

Booking

4.1    LEFTIT is not a Host nor it an agent acting on behalf of any other organisation or company, it is its’ own entity. LEFTIT provides an advertising platform for Hosts to list their premises as a location where Customers can book their Luggage for a specified period of time. LEFTIT shall provide the User with all relevant information relating to the Host including the Host location, Space available, operating hours and price per item of Luggage. At present this price is fixed at £5 per item of Luggage per 24 hours. Luggage is a subjective term and is not dictated by the items size or weight rather its physical presence. At the time a Booking is created a contract is formed between the Host and the Customer. Customers may be subject to requirements stipulated by the Host at the time that the Luggage is deposited. This may include but may not be limited to; providing evidence of the booking, showing the Host photo identification, inspection of the Luggage and sealing the Luggage with the use of tamper proof seals. Only the Customer who deposited that item of Luggage may collect it at the end of the Booking.

4.2     Each Host is independent and has responsibility for their respective premises. Reasonable Host conditions are for compliance by the Customer. The Host reserves the right to refuse service to any Customer. If a Customer is refused service the Host will refer the Customer back to LEFTIT. LEFTIT is not under any obligation to resolve matters between the Host or the Customer but may do so out of a goodwill gesture. Where a matter has been referred to LEFTIT we will be advised of the circumstances which resulted in the refusal of service. Our initial role will be to act as a mediator to form a compromise between the Host and the Customer. If mediation should fail a decision will be made as to whether fees will be paid back to the Customer or whether an alternative Host can be sought within the same City.

4.3     The Host is obligated to return property belonging to the customer in the same condition as it was presented to them. Each Customer is responsible for any injury or damage to the Host, its property or any third parties caused by the items stored or by any negligent act or omission of the Customer. Each Host is responsible for any damage to, or loss or theft of, items stored with that Host unless the damage is caused by factors beyond the control of the Host. As an intermediary service provider, LEFTIT will not be responsible in either case stated above and each Customer and Host releases LEFTIT from any liability to it.

4.4     Arrangements made with a Host to store Luggage outside of the LEFTIT booking platform is prohibited. Similarly, any arrangements made with a Host to store Luggage outside of their advertised hours as displayed on the LEFTIT site is also prohibited. These actions will nullify the storage insurance policy and will be considered a breach these Terms. Subsequently, LEFTIT will relinquish all of it’s responsibilities to the Customer and their Luggage for any costs incurred, safeguarding and return of the Luggage if any arrangement has been made with the Host without prior express consent from LEFTIT.

Safeguarding

5.1     The following articles are not permitted to be stored inside the Luggage left with Hosts.

Cancellation

6.1     Bookings created by the User may be cancelled by providing LEFTIT with notice in writing at info@leftit.co.uk. LEFTIT policy is to issue a full refund for the Booking, so long as the notice of cancellation was submitted prior to the commencement of Luggage Storage with the Host. Unfulfilled Bookings will be reviewed on a case by case basis with a priority being assigned to find an alternative Host for the Customer before proceeding with a refund.
