of Service, and agree to abide by them. You can review the most current version of this

The Terms of Service is the entire agreement regarding your usage of the Services, and
supersedes any oral or written communication between you and any employee, officer, or

jurisdiction of the courts located within King County, Washington. You
and FindMyJeweler agree to conduct all legal proceedings exclusively in the English
language. The failure of FindMyJeweler to exercise or enforce any right or provision
of the Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If
any provision of the Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to
be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give
effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other
provisions of the Terms of Service remain in full force and effect. Regardless of any
statute or law to the contrary, you agree to send written notice to FindMyJeweler as
set forth in Section 9, detailing any claim or cause of action arising out of or
related to your use of the Services or the Terms of Service within one (1) year after
such claim or cause of action arose, or be forever barred from pursuing such claim or
cause of action.

11. FINDMYJEWELER IS A VENUE
FindMyJeweler acts as a venue providing information and online resources to assist
users and merchants who wish to buy or sell diamonds and jewelry. We are not involved
in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, we have no control
over the quality, safety or legality of the items or services offered for sale by any
merchant or user listed on or referred by our Services, the truth or accuracy of any
claims, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items.
FindMyJeweler cannot and does not confirm each merchant's or user's purported
identity, and we cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a
transaction. Consequently, we do not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller
to the buyer, and nothing in this agreement shall modify the governing provisions of
Ca. Com. Code 2401(2) and Uniform Com. Code 2-401(2), under which legal ownership
of an item is transferred upon physical delivery of the item to the buyer by the
Your correspondence or business dealings with, or participation in promotions of,
merchants, advertisers, or users found on or through Services, including payment and
delivery of related goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or
representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such
merchant, advertiser, or user. You agree that FindMyJeweler shall not be responsible
or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such
dealings or as the result of the presence of such advertisers, merchants, or users on
the Services. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more users or merchants,
you release FindMyJeweler (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint
ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (including actual and
consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected,
disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code 1542, which says: "A
general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect
to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must
have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
FindMyJeweler may not actively monitor or edit messages, reviews or other content
submitted by users. You hereby agree and acknowledge that FindMyJeweler is merely a
service provider under 47 U.S.C. 230 and any other applicable law. You further
acknowledge and agree that we have no obligation to edit or delete content which you
may find objectionable, offensive, or that you may allege to be defamatory or otherwise
prohibited. You further acknowledge and agree that any content submitted by users is
the sole opinion and responsibility of such users, and agree not to hold FindMyJeweler
or its officers, agents, employees, directors, or affiliates liable in any way for any
such content. FindMyJeweler will edit or remove content if requested by the original
author or his/her authorized agent, or if ordered by a court of law with relevant
jurisdiction. You expressly agree to reimburse FindMyJeweler for all costs (including
attorney fees and costs) we incur arising from any actions you or any of your agents
take against any third parties under this Article 11. You expressly agree to reimburse
FindMyJeweler for all costs (including attorney costs) we incur in defending any
action you or any of your agents pursue against FindMyJeweler, its agents, employees,
directors, officers, or affiliates in contradiction of this Article 11. You further
expressly agree that FindMyJeweler may seek and obtain incidental and punitive damages
resulting from you taking any action or acting in any manner that contradicts this
Article 11, in addition to any other lawful remedies, and you further acknowledge that
your lack of legal knowledge or competent legal counsel shall not in any way diminish
the remedies available to FindMyJeweler as set forth herein.
FindMyJeweler takes reasonable steps to assure that each prospective merchant reasonably meets certain criteria
described in the FindMyJeweler website before allowing them to participate in the Services. You
understand and agree that the actual decision to allow or disallow
a given merchant to participate in the Services is made subjectively by the
management, employees, contractors, and/or agents of FindMyJeweler. Such decision is FindMyJeweler's
reasonable opinion of the future performance of a given merchant, made after carefully weighing all the
criteria and data known to FindMyJeweler at the time the decision is made. FindMyJeweler
reserves the right to allow or disallow any merchant from the Services at any time and for any reason, at FindMyJeweler's sole discretion.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless FindMyJeweler, its affiliates,
officers, directors, employees, consultants and agents from any and all third party
claims, liability, damages and/or costs (including, but not limited to, attorneys fees)
arising from your use or misuse of the Services, your violation of the Terms of
Service, or your infringement, or infringement by any other user of your account, of
any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity. The Terms of Service
will inure to the benefit of FindMyJeweler's successors, assigns and licensees.
