Terms & Conditions Specific to Customer Service Department.
We photograph all incoming service items that are not while-you-wait, for your protection and ours.
We rely on the information that you, the client, provide when you drop off items for our attention, in order to safely return the items to you when we are done. Your repair ticket shows the item and a serial number if present, plus your name and contact information. When you sign the repair ticket, you are confirming that the description and value information thereon is correct to the best of your knowledge. Kirk Freeport is not responsible for incorrect information once you have confirmed it. If you notice later that the information is wrong, you’ll have to provide us with the original repair ticket and photo-id to have it changed.
The information that you provide to us will be verified by our qualified staff. Your identification of the condition, value, and quality of each item serves as a temporary identification until verified. If your description or valuation is substantially incorrect, or the task is difficult or likely to cause damage we will contact you before proceeding. If you then wish us to continue you assume all risks and costs incurred.
We’ll take exceptional care of your service items, but we are not responsible for damage caused by your incomplete or incorrect instructions, for instance take especial care that engraving instructions are accurate and unambiguous.
In the event of loss or damage Kirk Freeport agrees to replace the merchandise only in the event of actual willful default by the company or its employee. The cost of replacement and Kirk Freeport’s liability will not exceed our estimate of the value thereof. If no value is estimated then the liability will not exceed US$100.
We collect information personally identifying you, the client, to contact you when your service items are ready for collection. We hold this on file after the item is returned to you, in case repeat work is required. In accordance with the Cayman Islands Data Protection Regulations, 2018, this is not shared with persons unconnected with the Department except with your advance consent.
In most circumstances you will require the repair ticket and photo-id to collect your items.
When we’ve finished our work on your item we will attempt to contact you at intervals and at least three times. We will use text message, email or phone as supplied using the information you provided, we’ll even use social media if we have that information. If we still cannot contact you after 12 months, we may sell your item to defray our costs, any monies in excess of our costs we will hold for you in the form of a Gift Card.
We guarantee service under warranty for 12 months. Because of the unpredictable amount of wear and tear we cannot guarantee jewellery repairs but will repeat repairs at no cost if a fault recurs within a month of collection.
