- Eligible Users. By using the Website or Services you certify that you are a resident of Canada, have reached the age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence and possess the capacity to enter into a legally binding contract. Zillidy is not responsible for any consequences flowing from the use of its Website or Services in a jurisdiction in which the contents of the Website or Services are illegal or prohibited. By using the Website or Services you also agree to indemnify Zillidy for all reasonable losses suffered, including legal costs, in the event that you do not meet the foregoing requirements or in the event that your use of the Website or Services violates any laws or prohibitions in your jurisdiction.
- Our Services. We provide you with an opportunity to apply for a Loan through the Website. All Loans are subject to our approval of your application and our evaluation of the property being pledged. Zillidy reserves the right to refuse any Loan application at any time prior to the completion of the Loan. To apply for a Loan you must complete the Loan application available here (zillidy.com/GetStarted). Please review the Frequently Asked Questions (zillidy.com/FAQ) and the “How it Works” page (zillidy.com/HowItWorks) to learn more about how our process works. The Loan agreement includes information that we are required by law to provide to you, including but not limited to a description of the property, the term of the Loan agreement, the service charge and all fees, the annual percentage rate of interest, how to satisfy your obligations early and the total amount required to satisfy your obligations and redeem your property.
- Restrictions on Services. There are some limitations on our Services. We reserve the right to accept Loan applications in our sole discretion. As described in our FAQ, available at zillidy.com/FAQ, we have a minimum transaction size of $500. We do not accept certain types of property and reserve the right to refuse to accept certain types of property as collateral at our sole discretion. While we attempt to make payments to you within 24 hours of your acceptance of a Loan, this timing is contingent upon your compliance and other factors and Zillidy will not be held liable for any delays resulting from incorrect or incomplete information provided by you or any delays caused by circumstances beyond Zillidy’s control. Zillidy will not accept any items a) from a person who is under the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence, b) from a person whose identity can not be confirmed by an identification paper or other document, c) sent to any location other than the location specified by Zillidy or d) such as a motor vehicle, a part or accessory of a motor vehicle, a pipe or other metal object used in construction of buildings, a bicycle, a part or accessory of a bicycle, unless the person using the item as collateral for a Loan provides Zillidy with a report of the Toronto Police (or the city in which you reside) establishing that the item was checked by police officers and that it was not reported stolen at the time of verification.
- Fees and other Charges. We charge fees for our Services. You will be given an opportunity to review and accept the fees that will be charged in connection with each Loan. Please review our terms regarding our rates at zillidy.com/FAQ. We will charge you applicable taxes, if any. All fees and currency amounts are quoted in Canadian Dollars. Zillidy may, in its sole discretion, change our standard fees, rates and other charges. Any such changes will be posted on the Website and such amended fees and charges will apply to any Loan entered into after the date of such change.
- Shipping Procedures. Zillidy will provide you with a pre-paid shipping label so that you may ship your property to us via FedEx for free. Alternatively, you may arrange for your own shipping through a carrier of your choice and at your own expense. If you choose to ship your property using your own carrier, insurance against loss or damage must be arranged by you and in the event that your property is lost, stolen or damaged while being shipped to Zillidy it will be your sole responsibility to make any claims against your carrier. If you ship your property using the pre-paid FedEx shipping label provided by Zillidy your property is automatically insured by Zillidy for the current replacement value of your item, as defined by Zillidy in its sole discretion. If you would like your property to be shipped faster than the service provided by Zillidy, you may make these arrangements at your own expense. It is your sole responsibility to retain the shipping receipt from the carrier, regardless of whether you use the shipping services provided by Zillidy or your own carrier. Such receipt must include a unique tracking ID, and such receipt shall be required in case of any insurance claim. You must be able to produce a photograph of your property and have at least one (1) document for each item that can prove your ownership and the current value of your property in order to make an insurance claim. It is your sole responsibility to keep safe all the documents that pertain to your property that may be required to support any possible insurance claim, including, but not limited to, receipts of the purchase, shipping receipts, evaluations, appraisals, certificates, as well as any insurance documents. It is your responsibility to make sure that when you ship your property all your items are appropriately and securely packaged. Zillidy will not be held responsible for any damage to your property during shipping to Zillidy caused by or resulting from insufficient or defective packing. Zillidy reserves the right to reject delivery of any package that appears to be opened, tampered with or damaged. All such items will be returned to sender without further liability to Zillidy. Zillidy will not be responsible to cover losses caused by or resulting from shortage from a package received in good condition with unbroken seals. As well, in order to provide an accurate appraisal of your asset’s value, Zillidy may be required to clean the asset. Although Zillidy takes great care in its handling of your asset, Zillidy will not be held responsible for damage to your asset as a result of the asset’s brittle or broken condition.
When you make a full payment to redeem your property, or decline to proceed with a Loan after you have shipped your property, Zillidy will ship the property back to you using FedEx. The property will be shipped to the postal address listed on the Loan agreement, or in the case of property returned if you decline to proceed with a Loan, the most recent postal address you have provided. If you require the property to be returned to an address that is different than the address reflected on the Loan agreement, you must provide Zillidy with a copy of a current photo ID acceptable to Zillidy that reflects the revised address.
