6. Contract for Sale of Goods or Services

 

The description of the goods, services, price, currency, taxes and delivery costs are set out on the order page of the Links of London Site.  The advertising of products and services on the Links of London Site is an ‘offer of sale’.  Therefore, your order is an offer and no contract of sale is formed between you and Links of London until you receive a “confirmation of order” email.  Orders shall be accepted at our sole discretion but are normally accepted once credit card authorization has been confirmed, the order reflects current pricing, stock levels have been checked or in the case of services we can offer the service you request.  Once we accept your order, you shall pay the price for the goods or services plus taxes and delivery and other costs specified on the order page, and we shall charge your account for payment.  Please keep your "confirmation of order" e-mail for your records.

 

In exceptional circumstances, if we are not able to fulfil an order we have accepted, your credit card will be re-credited with the original price and we will notify you by email.  In no circumstances will we be liable to you for any additional amounts.

 

You will only own the goods you purchase once they have been successfully delivered and when we have received cleared payment for them in full.  Until that time we will retain title to the goods.  Goods supplied are not for resale.

 

**Please note if this is your first order being placed on our website, for security reasons your order can only be delivered to your billing address where your credit/debit card is registered.

 

6.1.      Payment. We accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express (Amex) and Paypal.

 

To securely receive your payments over the Internet we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, which is the standard Internet practice and means your details are protected. You can see that you are in a secure environment through the 'padlock' symbol on Microsoft Internet Explorer or 'key' symbol on Netscape Navigator. SSL works with Microsoft Internet Explorer version 3.0 and later versions/ Netscape Browser versions 2.0 and later versions. We feel it's important to have this level of security available, so anyone using lower version browsers should contact us by phone to place an order.

 

Please don't try to send orders via email, as we cannot guarantee any secure transmission of details. We will take all reasonable care to keep your order secure, but in the absence of our sole negligence we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party obtains unauthorized access to any data (including credit and account details) you provide when accessing or ordering from the site.  If you're still worried about security over the Internet, then please contact us by phone.

 

6.2.      Customer Responsibility.

Links of London cannot guarantee that the sale and delivery of its goods to your particular country or location is permissible, so please be aware of your own geographic import restrictions.

The Links of London Site and its contents will not constitute the basis for any contractual commitment between Links of London and any prospective customer in any jurisdiction in which the solicitation of interest or the offering of or sale of products by Links of London would contravene any applicable local, regional or national legislation.  No prospective customer should seek to make any order through the Links of London Site from jurisdictions in which it would be illegal for Links of London to sell products.

6.3.      Sale Items - Terms and Conditions 

Goods offered at a sale price (on “Sale”) through the Links of London Site may have been on Sale in another Links of London store at the higher price for a period of no less than 28 days.

Items purchased on Sale will not be refunded, but items bought on promotion can be exchanged or refunded within the 28 day window.

6.4       Promotions - Terms and Conditions 

Selected goods may be featured on Sale while stocks last.  The goods on Sale are not live in Links of London standalone stores, concessions, airports or outlets.  Goods that are on Sale cannot be refunded or exchanged in-store.  Promotional voucher codes such as the newsletter sign up discount cannot be used with any Goods that are on Sale, except with the free delivery offer on the US website.  All sales of goods that are on Sale are FINAL SALES.  If a good is faulty, the normal procedures apply.  Links of London reserves the right to alter, amend or foreclose the sale price and associated promotions without prior notice in the event that unforeseen circumstances make this unavoidable.

Goods offered at the promotional price on the site have been on Sale in either another Links of London store or on the Links of London Site at the higher price for a period of no less than 28 days.

These goods are only available for customers residing in the US and Canada.

7. Delivery and Customs 

 

Please see our delivery webpage [http://www.linksoflondon.com/ca-en/our-services/delivery] for information on timings and costs of shipping.  We will use our reasonable methods to deliver the goods or services within the times indicated.  However, where delivery times and dates are given, they are for general guidance only and we will not be held liable for late delivery of goods caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

 

We shall attempt to deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery, or if none, to the credit card address you supply.  You are responsible for making arrangements to receive the goods and if the goods are held at the post office or other delivery company's depot because no one was available when the goods were delivered then it is your responsibility to swiftly collect the goods.  It is important that the addresses supplied by you to us are accurate.

 

Please note that we are currently not able to deliver to P.O. Boxes or military bases.

 

To give you a more straightforward service, the price you pay includes any duties or taxes applicable to the appropriate jurisdiction, i.e., USA, Canada, UK and the remainder of the European Union, which we will settle on your behalf.  If duty rates change, we reserve the right to charge extra or not to supply.  It may not be possible for us to deliver to some countries, if an order is received with a delivery address outside the territories stated, you will be contacted by our customer service center.

 

**Please note that any duty and/or administration charges incurred by your parcel being delivered overseas will need to be settled by you as Links of London will not be held liable for these.

 

***Please note if this is your first order being placed on our website, for security reasons your order can only be delivered to your billing address where your credit/debit card is registered.

9. Our standards 

 

All of our jewelry is hand polished and finished.  Sterling silver is used as standard except where specified and all our gold is 18 carat.  All diamonds and precious stones are hand selected for purity and color.  For 18 carat jewelry we only use GVS1 diamonds which are described as "Fine White" in appearance.  Diamond weights quoted are the average carat weight per piece or pair in the case of earrings or set, unless stated otherwise and this weight can fluctuate up and down slightly.

 

For every item containing multiple diamonds, we list the average weight.  Where Links of London state the total diamond carat weight, this may vary plus or minus 0.05 carats from the weight stated.   Links of London is committed to offering high-quality diamonds.  We share the public's concern regarding conflict diamonds and we only purchase diamonds which comply completely with the Kimberley Process requirements. Please see ‘our materials’ for more information.

For hygiene reasons we cannot exchange or refund earrings, unless they are defective or faulty. Items bought in our Sale are FINAL SALE and cannot be returned.  Items on promotion will not be refunded if returned after the 14 day cooling off period, but can be exchanged within the promotional period.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES WHICH MEANS THAT SOME OR ALL OF THE DISCLAIMERS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

 

YOU AGREE THAT LINKS OF LONDON IS NOT LIABLE FOR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED AND UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER ARISING IN ANY WAY IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS AND WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) AND EVEN IF LINKS OF LONDON HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY WILL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

IN NO EVENT SHALL LINKS OF LONDON’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THE LINKS OF LONDON SITE FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES AND CAUSES OF ACTION EXCEED THE GREATER OF ONE THOUSAND U.S. DOLLARS (US$1,000) OR THE AMOUNT YOU PAID FOR THE GOODS PURCHASED DURING THE TWELVE MONTHS PRECEDING THE ACTION THAT GAVE RISE TO THE LIABILITY.

17. Indemnification

 

You agree to indemnify and defend Links of London and its directors, officers, employees and agents from and against all losses, liabilities, actual or pending claims, actions, damages, expenses, costs of defense and reasonable attorneys’ fees brought against Links of London by any third party arising from your use of the Links of London Site or any violation of these Terms, the rights of a third party or applicable law.  Links of London reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification hereunder.  No settlement that affects the rights or obligations of Links of London may be made without Links of London’s prior written approval.

 

18. Dispute Resolution

 

These Terms are governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York (without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of laws of such state) and are binding upon the parties hereto in the United States and worldwide.  You and Links of London agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to the interpretation or construction of these Terms.

Except as prohibited by applicable law, you agree to settle by binding arbitration any dispute between you and Links of London and its agents, employees, officers, directors, principals, successors, assigns, subsidiaries or affiliates arising from or relating to these Terms and their interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof,  the relationships which result from these Terms (including disputes about the validity, scope or enforceability of these Terms to arbitration) (collectively, “Covered Disputes”) in the State of New York.  Except as modified by these Terms, the rules (including its rules and procedures for consumer-related disputes, if applicable) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in effect on the date that the arbitration commences (“AAA Rules”) will govern the arbitration.  Except as prohibited by applicable law, you and Links of London waive any right to resolve Covered Disputes before any court of law.

YOU AND LINKS OF LONDON AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING.  

The AAA Rules will govern payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees. Links of London will pay as much of the filing, administration and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary for any individual that is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration are prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation.  If the arbitrator determines the a claim that you assert is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, you agree to reimburse Links of London for all fees associated with the arbitration that Links of London paid on your behalf which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA Rules.

 

A single arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the AAA Rules.  The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language.  The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity and any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.  The arbitrator will not, however, have the power to award punitive or exemplary damages, the right to which each party hereby irrevocably waives (except where prohibited by law).  The arbitrator will apply applicable law and the applicable provisions of these Terms and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review.  The arbitrator’s decision must be a written decision with explanation and remain confidential. 

 

If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section 18 is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced but in no case will these Terms give rise to a class, representative or private attorney general arbitration.  Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, notice on any claim arising from or related to these Terms must be made within one (1) year after such claim arose or be forever barred.  The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16 (FAA) applies for purposes of these Terms and related transactions.

 

You explicitly agree that any claims or actions that you may otherwise have against Links of London under the laws of any jurisdiction outside the United States are hereby waived (including any claim or action under the laws of your own country) and that your only forum and applicable law for the resolution of any disputes is in the United States of America according to the terms of this Section 18.  This provision does not, however, apply if you are a consumer residing in a jurisdiction that permits you to make your claim before a legally competent court of the jurisdiction where you reside that possesses personal jurisdiction over Links of London.

21. Termination
