You may exercise your CCR right to cancel during the 14-day cooling-off period, provided that you do so before sending jewellery to us. By sending us your jewellery before the 14-day cooling-off period has expired, you are requesting that we provide the Replate, Repair and Resize Services and you will no longer be able to exercise your CCR right to cancel.
To cancel a contract, you must clearly inform us, by email at email@example.com, giving us your name, address and order reference or by completing and returning the cancellation form at the end of the Master Terms of Service and sending it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It will only be possible to cancel a contract if you have not yet sent us your jewellery.

If a service is not carried out with reasonable care and skill, you can ask us to repeat the service, fix the issue or get some money back if we cannot fix it. However, if you have a problem, please let us know using our Contact Us page. This is a summary of some of your key rights and are in addition to your cancellation rights as set out above.
FINEMATTER: RECYCLE TERMS
These service terms ('Recycle Terms') set out the legal terms that apply to your use of our Recycle service ('Recycle Service').
Capitalised terms used but not defined shall have the respective meanings given to them in the Master Terms of Service. When we refer to 'Credit' we mean the value of your jewellery (such value to be assessed by us in accordance with these Recycle Terms) which we issue to you as credit for you to use to purchase our Services (for example, purchase products using our Jewellery Purchase Service). When we refer to 'Estimated Appraised Value' we mean the approximate valuation of your jewellery, which is based on the information you send to us at the time you place your order. When we refer to 'Final Appraised Value' we mean our physical review and valuation of your jewellery.
Recycle Service. Our Recycle Service allows you to recycle jewellery that you no longer wear by sending it to us in return for Credit. We will also appraise your jewellery to tell you how much it is worth. Further details are set out on the Website as may be updated from time to time.
Provision of Recycle Service. We will provide the Recycle Service within the period set out on our Website (as may be updated from time to time). We will do all that we reasonably can to provide the Recycle Service within the period agreed with you. If there might be a delay before we can start or restart the Recycle Service, we will email you to let you know as soon as reasonably possible.
After you place an order for our Recycle Service via the Website and provide us with the information requested, we will send you a confirmation email. No valuations are final until we have received the jewellery from you and issued our Final Appraised Value.
Once we receive your jewellery, we will conduct an in-person appraisal of its value and send you the Final Appraised Value. If the Final Appraised Value is within 10% of the Estimated Appraised Value, we shall recycle your jewellery and issue you with Credit equal to the Final Appraised Value.
Order acceptance. Acceptance of your order takes place when you send us your jewellery in accordance with section 1.3(c) above. Upon sending your jewellery to us, you are consenting to us recycling your jewellery and this consent cannot be withdrawn unless your order is cancelled as set out in these Recycle Terms. We reserve the right not to accept your order if, for example, the Recycle Service has been withdrawn or is otherwise not available, or you do not meet the eligibility criteria (e.g. you are under 18).
Availability. All orders are subject to availability. We cannot guarantee that our Recycle Service will be available at any given time or in the country in which you live.
Your obligations. When you submit your order to us, you are promising that the jewellery you wish to recycle is: (a) genuine, (b) solely your property and does not belong to anyone else, and (c) is not subject to any hire purchase agreement, charge or other third party interest.
Information we need from you. You promise that your description of your jewellery is accurate and not misleading. An inaccurate, false or misleading description may lead to an inaccurate Estimated Appraised Value of your jewellery and any such valuation will be reviewed and may subsequently be decreased when we receive your jewellery from you.
Valuation. We understand that not all customers are experts in assessing the condition of their jewellery and therefore we carry out a thorough inspection of your jewellery before proceeding to recycle it. All Estimated Appraised Values are therefore not legally binding.
Credit value. If we consider that the jewellery is not as described by you in any way that affects its value, the Credit that we offer for it will differ from the Estimated Appraised Value. In the event our Final Appraised Value is more than 10% higher, or more than 10% lower, than the Estimated Appraised Value, we will notify you in writing and you will have the option to cancel your order.
Cancelling orders. Orders for our Recycle Service cannot be cancelled after Credit has been issued to you. Please see further information below on the circumstances in which you may cancel your order:
If our Final Appraised Value is more than 10% higher, or more than 10% lower, than the Estimated Appraised Value, we will let you know. If you then confirm to us that you:
wish to proceed with the Recycle Service, it will not be possible to cancel your order; or do not wish to proceed with the Recycle Service, your order will be deemed to be cancelled and we shall return your jewellery to you. If you do not wish to proceed, you must tell us within 14 days. We may charge you reasonable costs for returning your jewellery to you.
Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to cancel your order under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 ('CCRs') or equivalent consumer legislation. You may exercise your CCR right to cancel during the 14-day cooling-off period, provided that you do so before sending jewellery to us. By sending us your jewellery before the 14-day cooling-off period has expired, you are requesting that we provide the Recycle Service and you will no longer be able to exercise your CCR right to cancel.
To cancel a contract, you must clearly inform us, by email at email@example.com, giving us your name, address and order reference or by completing and returning the cancellation form at the end of the Master Terms of Service and sending it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It will only be possible to cancel a contract if the circumstances in section 4.1(a)(ii) applies.
Your obligations. We cover the cost of you posting your jewellery to us. We also cover the cost of insuring your jewellery whilst it is in transit but you must do the following in order for us to do so:
Take a photo of your jewellery just before you send it to us (we may need you to send this to us in the unlikely event something goes wrong in transit);
You follow the instructions we send to you (e.g. you apply the address label appropriately and you package the jewellery securely using the kit we send you);
Complete any information required by our delivery partner (e.g. indicating the value of your jewellery; this should be the Estimated Appraised Value); and
Keep secure the proof of postage you receive from our delivery partner when sending your jewellery to us.

5) Our liability to you in relation to the Services
If, in providing the Services to you, we fail to comply with these Terms and Conditions, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these Terms and Conditions or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it was an obvious consequence of our breach or if it was contemplated by you and us at the time you started using the Services. We do not in any way exclude or limit our liability for:
- death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
- fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
- any other liability which cannot be limited by law.
6) The products
We attempt to be as accurate as possible in the description of the products displayed on the Website. However, as the descriptions are based on information provided to us by the Partners (who remain responsible for them), we cannot guarantee that all details are always accurate, complete or error free. Please contact our customer service team if you would like more information about a product. The images of the products on the Website are for illustrative purposes only, and although we attempt to display colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the images accurately reflects the true colour of the products.
If an item you have ordered is not as described, is flawed or of a lower quality, you can return it to us and we will liaise with the Partner on your behalf. Once the item is received and authenticated by the relevant Partner, you will receive a full refund of the defective product, or alternatively a discount, replacement or repair for the item where possible, agreed on a case by case basis by us. We will refund you any applicable delivery charges and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the products (we will advise you whether the products will be collected from you or whether you need to arrange for them to be returned). Please see section 10 below for details of how to arrange a return.
As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to products that are faulty or not as described. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions will affect these legal rights.
The products sold by the Partners are supplied for your domestic and private use only. You agree that you will not use the products for any commercial or business purposes. You further agree that you will not export, re-export, or otherwise transfer the products to countries or territories that are the target of comprehensive embargoes or sanctions or to parties identified on the U.S. Treasury Department's List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List or the E.U.'s Consolidated Financial Sanctions List. Neither we nor the Partners have any liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, interruption of business, or loss of business opportunity.
You may only use our Referral Program in good faith and in accordance with company policy. You may not:
(a) create more than one account in order to invite yourself
(b) invite others that have created duplicate accounts
(c) use alternative contact information to refer yourself or others that have created duplicate accounts, or
(d) use the Referral Program excessively or in any way that we consider to be unreasonable (at Finematter's discretion)
Finematter has the right to refuse any orders made that are used with credit that we suspect has been obtained through violation of the above agreement.
As explained above, the contract for the purchase of the products is between you and the relevant Partner. We are acting as agent and are authorised by the relevant Partner to conclude the contract on its behalf but we are not a party to that contract and you are not purchasing the products directly from us.
We request that all Partners using the Website have and maintain reasonable business policies which comply with our own business policies. We cannot, however, be responsible for the Partners' business policies. If you are unhappy with the product or service you have received from a Partner, you should contact us and we will liaise with the relevant Partner on your behalf to try and resolve the issue.
9) Orders, prices and payment
By completing the check-out process and placing an order, you are offering to purchase the products from the relevant Partner (and not directly from us). Your order for the products is subject to these Terms and Conditions which are incorporated into the contract between you and the relevant Partner. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price, which is determined by the relevant Partner. After entering into the contract for the products with the Partner, the Partner will be under a legal duty to supply you with goods that are in conformity with the contract. Legal title to the product purchased will pass to you upon your payment being accepted. Risk will pass to you when it is delivered to you at the address specified when you placed your order.
To order products you must be over 18 years of age and possess a valid credit or debit card. By placing an order, you are promising that all details you provide are true and accurate, that you are over 18 years of age, that you are an authorised user of the credit or debit card used to place your order and that there are sufficient funds in the account to cover the cost of your order.
The Website allows you to check your order and correct any errors before completing a purchase. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process as you are responsible for ensuring that the information you provide is accurate (for example, the correct products, quantities, size, colour, etc.).
(a) Formation of the contract between you and the Partner(s)
The identity of the Partner is shown on the order confirmation page when you place an order. When you place an order, you will receive an email confirming receipt of your order. This email is only an acknowledgement for information purposes and it does not constitute acceptance of your order by the Partner.
The contract between you and the Partner in relation to the products will not be formed until we have checked that the Partner accepts your order. If your order is accepted, we will send you a confirmation email, which concludes the contract between you and the Partner. The confirmation email will include a description of the products purchased in the order and certain other information about your rights to cancel the contract between you and the Partner (please see section 10 below for further information on your rights to cancel the contract). Only those products listed in the dispatch confirmation email are included in the contract between you and the Partner.
(b) Pricing and availability
Whilst we try and ensure that all details, descriptions and prices that appear on the Website are accurate, as this information is provided to us by the Partners, there may be cases where errors occur. If we discover an error in the price of any products that you have ordered, we will inform you of this as soon as possible and, acting on behalf of the Partner, give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, your order will be treated as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the products, you will receive a full refund as soon as possible.
If you are viewing the Website from the UK or EU, the product prices advertised on the Website from Partners located within the UK or EU are inclusive of the VAT charged by the relevant Partner. Delivery costs are not included in the prices and will be charged in addition. The delivery costs (which will include VAT charged by us) will vary depending on the products that you have ordered and your delivery address. Please see the "Delivery" section of our Website for further details. The delivery costs applicable to your order will be clearly displayed at checkout before you place your order.
Depending on your delivery address, different taxation rules and additional charges may apply. If you are shipping items from a Partner outside of your territory, you may need to pay import duties upon receipt of the products. We will notify you during the checkout process if import duties are included or you may have to pay them upon receipt of the products. If they are not included, neither we nor the Partner have any control over these charges and we cannot advise on their amount. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes that are not included. Please contact your local customs office for further information and a "landed cost estimate" before placing your order.
Please note that if you return an item, the taxes and import duties will be refunded to you if they were originally included in the purchase price. If they were not included then you will be responsible for reclaiming duty directly from your local customs office.
When you submit your order, we carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card on behalf of the relevant Partner, and products will not be dispatched until the details you have provided are verified.
Once we have verified your payment details and the Partner has accepted and approved your order for delivery, we will email you to inform you of this. In the event that we or the Partner encounter a problem when processing your order, we will contact you and may possibly request further information to try and resolve the issue.
We reserve the right not to submit your order to the Partner, and the Partner reserve the right not to accept your order if, for example, the product ordered is out of stock, has been withdrawn or is otherwise not available, or if we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment or if you do not meet the eligibility criteria (e.g. you are under 18).
The estimated delivery date of the products will be stated in your order confirmation email. If you do not receive an estimated delivery date from us, we will deliver the order within 30 days after the date of dispatch. We (and not the Partners) supply delivery services to you and we will try to ensure that your order is delivered by the estimated delivery date if given, but there may be circumstances where delivery is delayed because of events beyond our reasonable control (please see section 15 below for further information). If this happens, we will try and arrange for your products to be delivered as soon as possible, but we will not be liable to you for any losses caused as a result of such delay.
Delivery times may vary depending on the availability of the products and your delivery address. Delivery times, including for "same day" delivery, are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed. The product(s) will be delivered to you directly by the Partner(s) so your order may arrive in multiple deliveries and at different times.
If no one is available at your address to sign for your order, our delivery partner will leave you a note and you will need to contact them to rearrange delivery.
In certain circumstances our delivery partner may provide you with optional services when delivering your order, such as: (a) signature release: opting out of the requirement to provide a signature on delivery; (b) leave with neighbour, reception or security: re-directing the delivery to a neighbour, reception or security; (c) reschedule a new delivery date: selecting a delivery date that best suits you; and/or (d) re-directing to a collection point: collecting your package from a collection point nearby. By selecting any of these services, including through any default preferences you may have selected with our delivery partner separately, you acknowledge and agree that we shall bear no responsibility or liability for any loss or damage that may result from delivering your order in that way.
11) International Delivery
Details of the countries we deliver to can be found on our Website. There are restrictions on some products for certain international destinations, so please review the information on that page carefully before placing an order.
If you purchase products for delivery to an international destination, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the package reaches that destination. Please see section 7(b) (above) for more information on duties and taxes. You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you breach any such laws.
12) Returns Policy
Please see the "Returns Policy" on our Website ('Returns Policy') for information on returns and exchanges. For further information on cancelling your order under the CCRs, please see below.
Cancelling under the Consumer Contracts Regulations
Depending on where you live, you have a legal right to cancel your order under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 ('CCRs') or equivalent consumer legislation in the EU. This means that, during a certain cancellation period, if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep the purchased products, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the order. Once the products are returned to, and authenticated by, the relevant Partner you will receive a full refund, including the original delivery costs; however you will be liable to arrange and cover the full cost of returning the order to the Partner.
Except in relation to certain types of products as set out in the Returns Policy (for example, sale items or bespoke orders), you may cancel a contract at any time before your order is delivered and up to 14 days afterwards, beginning on the day after you received the products ('cooling-off period').

If you cancel a contract between us within the 14-day cooling-off period, we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible. In any case your refund will be completed within 14 days after the day on which the Partner received and authenticated your return, or if earlier, the day on which we receive evidence that you have returned the product(s) to the relevant Partner's address.

15) Intellectual property, software and content

The rights in the Website and the Content are protected by international copyright laws as well as by any relevant national law concerning copyright, authors' rights and database right laws. All such rights are reserved.

16) Ethical sourcing policy
We are committed to offering our customers high-quality, ethically made products. We therefore recognise our obligation to ensure that all Partners and other suppliers are operating ethically and with respect for the environment. We expect all Partners and other suppliers to consistently provide an environment which protects their employees' health and safety and basic human rights. All Partners and other suppliers are expected to comply with their national employment laws and regulations with particular regard to: minimum age of employment, freely chosen employment, health and safety, freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining, no discrimination, no harsh or inhumane treatment, working hours, rates of pay and terms of employment. We will never knowingly allow a Partner to offer its products on the Website if such products are sourced from countries or suppliers which are in breach of these principles. We also look to the Partners and other suppliers to instil these principles when dealing with their own supplier base. Because of the sometimes complex nature of the Partners and other suppliers' supply chain, it is not always possible to monitor and control the conditions of each individual involved in the production of the products. However, as we continue to grow, we recognise the importance of being proactive and doing everything within our power to support the rights of those involved in the manufacture of the products.
