Unless otherwise noted, the Websites, including all information and contents such as, images, photographs, illustrations, designs, artwork, graphics, photography, text, data, music, sound, messages, software, the HTML used to generate the pages, and the like, that are part of the Websites (collectively, “Contents”) are the property of Wet Seal or that of its suppliers or licensors and are protected by copyright, trademark, trade dress and/or other intellectual property rights under the United States and/or foreign law. The Contents of our Websites and the Websites as a whole may be used solely for personal, noncommercial use.

We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the attributes of our products, including the applicable colors; however, the actual color you see will depend on your monitor, computer system and other factors, and we cannot guarantee that your computer will accurately display such colors. The product images on the Websites may appear larger or smaller than their actual size. 

Product Information and Pricing 

Some products displayed on the Websites may also be available in select Wet Seal stores. In some cases, web merchandise may not be available in Wet Seal stores. While merchandise offered on the Websites is generally priced the same as merchandise offered at our stores, there may be price differences due to promotional events and special offers. The prices displayed on the Websites are quoted in US dollars and are valid and effective only in the US.  While we make every effort to be as accurate as possible in the product descriptions on the Websites, Wet Seal does not warrant that product descriptions, pricing or other content on the Websites are current, complete or error-free.

 You agree that your Comments will not violate any right of any third party, including copyright, trademark, privacy or other personal or proprietary right.

User-Generated Content

 Wet Seal owns and/or operates various Websites that permit users to submit or publish content (“User-Generated Content”).  The User-Generated Content Terms and Conditions supplement these Terms of Use, apply to and govern all User-Generated Content on our Websites, and are incorporated herein in full by reference.

Wet Seal may from time to time sponsor a variety of social media promotions including contests and sweepstakes. Your participation in any promotion will be subject to and governed by the official rules for that promotion and, when applicable, the promotional rules, policies and procedures on each social media platform’s site.  For the details and terms and conditions of Wet Seal’s latest social media contest or sweepstakes, please see the official rules of the specific contest or sweepstakes.


Wet Seal shall have the right, but not the obligation, to monitor the content of the Websites, including e-mail, to determine compliance with the Terms of Use and to satisfy any law, regulation or authorized government request. Without limiting the foregoing, Wet Seal shall have the right to remove any material that Wet Seal, in its sole discretion, finds to be in violation of the provisions hereof or otherwise objectionable.

Third Party Links

The Websites may include links to other Internet sites maintained by third parties (“Linked Sites”).  Wet Seal provides Linked Sites to you solely as a convenience and the inclusion of Linked Sites does not imply endorsement by Wet Seal of the Linked Sites.  You access Linked Sites at your own risk and by accessing them you leave the Websites.  Linked Sites are not under the control of Wet Seal and Wet Seal is not responsible for the contents of any Linked Sites.

Wet Seal Websites shall be used for lawful purposes only. Any conduct by you, which in Wet Seal’s sole discretion, restricts or inhibits any other user from enjoying the Websites will not be permitted.

Copyright Complaints

 Inaccuracies, Disclaimer, Limitation of Liability, and Indemnity 

Although Wet Seal endeavors to provide accurate information, there may be instances when the Websites unintentionally contain incomplete data, typographical errors or inaccuracies. Wet Seal does not warrant or make any representations regarding the accuracy or reliability of information on the Websites. The Websites and all Contents of the Websites are provided on an “as is” basis without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including without limitation warranties of title or implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.  Wet Seal reserves the right to amend errors or to update product information at any time without prior notice.  In the event a Wet Seal product is listed at an incorrect price due to a photographical, typological or pricing information error, Wet Seal shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders, whether or not confirmed or if you have already been charged.  If you have already been charged, Wet Seal will issue you a credit to your credit card for the incorrect amount.  Neither Wet Seal nor its related entities, vendors or content providers shall be liable to any person or entity for any direct or indirect loss, damage (whether actual, consequential, punitive, special or otherwise), injury, claim, or liability of any kind or character whatsoever based upon or resulting from your use or inability to use the Websites, or any information or materials provided on the Websites.  Wet Seal does not warrant that your use of the Websites will be uninterrupted or error free, or that the Websites or its servers are free of viruses or other harmful elements. Your use of the Websites is at your sole risk. You assume full responsibility for all costs associated with all necessary servicing or repairs of any equipment that you use in connection with your use of our Websites. Wet Seal shall not be liable for any damages of any kind related to your use of the Websites. Wet Seal is not liable for any defamatory, offensive or illegal conduct of any user. If you are dissatisfied with the Websites or with any of Wet Seal’s Terms of Use, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Websites. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Wet Seal, its members, managers, officers, directors, employees, agents, distributors, vendors and related entities from and against any and all third party claims, demands, liabilities, costs or expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, resulting or arising out of your breach of any of these Terms of Use.  The disclaimer of warranties, limitation of liability, and indemnification provisions of this paragraph do not apply to New Jersey residents.  In addition, applicable law may not allow the disclaimer of warranties, limitation of liability or indemnification provisions, so these provisions may not apply to you.


Wet Seal may deny you access to the Websites immediately and without notice if, in Wet Seal’s sole discretion, you fail to comply with any term or provision in these Terms of Use or the User-Generated Content Terms and Conditions.  These Terms of Use and the User-Generated Content Terms and Conditions and the Privacy Policy, which are incorporated herein by reference, constitute the entire agreement between you and Wet Seal relating to the subject matters addressed herein.


If any provision in these Terms of Use is deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severed from these Terms of Use and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect as if no invalid or unenforceable provision had been a part of this agreement.

Applicable Law 

These Terms of Use shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to any conflict of law provisions. Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the Terms of Use shall be resolved exclusively by arbitration in Orange County, California.  The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures.  Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.  This clause shall not preclude a party from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
