A User who intends to purchase Gold may place a Customer Order in the manner provided for on the Website or in any other manner with the Prior Written Consent of the Company.
A Customer Order once made cannot be cancelled by the User. However, this shall not in any manner affect the right of the Company to refuse to service or accept a Customer Order if and to the extent that any payment required to be made in respect of the Customer Order fails for any reason.
At or before the time at which You place the Customer Order, You will be required to make payment of the Purchase Price through a payment gateway or in such other manner as the Company may require, to the Collection Account. You recognise that although You are required to make a payment to the Collection Account, if such payment is made using a payment gateway, the monies will first be deposited into the Nodal Account and only from there into the Collection Account in such manner and within such time as is agreed upon between the payment gateway and the Company.
Once a Customer Order is validly placed:
Within 1 (one) Business Day of the Customer Order being placed or such further period as may be required by the Company, You will be intimated by e-mail and/ or SMS at the e-mail ID and/ or mobile number notified to the Company and/ or as required by the Company on the Website of the fact that the Customer Order has been placed;

You will become the owner of the Gold in respect of a Customer Order (i.e., title in the Gold will pass to You) only upon the completion of all of the following:
receipt of the Purchase Price in the Collection Account;
the Gold being stored on Your behalf by the Vault Keeper and not on behalf of the Company or any other Person or User;
the Gold being reflected as “Confirmed Gold Balance” on Your Account Summary; and

The Company reserves the absolute right to refuse to service to any Person (either with respect to the sale of Gold or any other service or activity or offering of the Company), any User, or in respect of any Customer Order, in any manner with or without cause or reason and under any circumstances whatsoever. The Company also reserves the right to reverse or cancel any sale made to any User or Person ex post facto and to consequently refund to such User or Person the value of the relevant Gold at the point in time at which the sale is so cancelled or reversed whether with or without cause or reason and under any circumstances whatsoever. The Company shall, in any such event, refund or pay to the relevant User or Person any amount that it becomes liable to pay in such circumstances based on the nature of the event. In respect of such refunds/ payments, the provisions of these Terms concerning payments and refunds shall, so far as may be, apply. Any other conflicting, more restricted or narrower provision on these matters contained in these Terms are without prejudice to the absolute generality of this power. The Company also reserves the right to undertake the Account Closure Process in any circumstances whatsoever.
The Company reserves the right to refuse to service a Customer Order and/ or undertake the Account Closure Process, at its sole discretion, if:
any of Your information is, in the Company’s opinion unacceptable, false or otherwise deficient in any manner; or
the Company is of the opinion that, for any other reason, You are not eligible to purchase gold.
If the Company refuses a Customer Order, it shall refund any monies received from the User or Person who placed the Customer Order in the manner provided for by these Terms. If the Company cancels, refuses to service or rejects a Customer Order on account of any fault on the part of the User, it may charge fees therefor and collect it in such manner as it thinks fit including but not limited to recovery out of the amounts falling consequently due to the User by the Company.
The User’s SafeSona Account shall reflect any such cancellation, refusal or reversal within five (5) Business Day of such event.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company also has the right to freeze, temporarily deactivate or suspend the SafeSona Account of any User and to undertake the Account Closure Process if it discovers any defect or deficiency or incompleteness in the KYC Process or any other documentation or information or the violation of any Law.
The Company reserves the absolute right to, without notice to the User, impose limits on or otherwise restrict the number or monetary quantum (whether individually or in aggregate) of transactions or payments it may receive from any User or Person, or from or by means of any particular method or instrument of payment including particular credit or debit cards, bank accounts, mobile and electronic wallets including those held with payment gateways and other service providers, etc., or in respect of any one or more Customer Orders. The Company also reserves the right to refuse to process any transactions exceeding such limits and to undertake the Account Closure Process in the event of three or more requests to process transactions exceeding such limits.

In order for a gift to take place, both the donor and the donee must be Users who have registered or created or are registering or creating or will register or will create SafeSona Accounts. A gift shall not be complete unless both the donor and the donee have SafeSona Accounts.

The Gold available for sale with the Company are solely for the purpose of sale in India. The Company makes no representation that the Gold is legal, appropriate, compliant or available for use anywhere outside India. If You choose to access the Website or make a purchase from outside India, You do so at Your own risk. The Company is not responsible for the supply of the Gold or for payments, refunds or other remittances where the User or the place of delivery is outside India. You accept and acknowledge that it is Your sole responsibility to comply with the laws of the jurisdiction whose laws extend to You. Further, the Company does not represent that it delivers Gold to all parts of India.
As required by Law, if You make a Customer Order for an amount equal to or above ₹2,00,000 (two lakh rupees), You will be required to upload a scanned copy of Your PAN (Permanent Account Number) card relating to the Income Tax Department through the Website within 4 (four) Business Days of making the Customer Order failing which the Customer Order will not be serviced or, if serviced, the sale made will be reversed or appropriately cancelled and the payments refunded in accordance with the provisions of these Terms governing refunds. The Customer order will, similarly, not be serviced or the sale made reversed/ cancelled if Your name as per the information provided by You in the KYC Process does not match Your name on the PAN card and You are not able to satisfy the Company of the genuineness of the PAN card, the documents submitted and the information provided during the KYC Process, and/ or Your identity.
PAYMENTS AND REFUNDS
You understand that upon initiating a process for raising a Customer Order or conducting a purchase from the Company, You are entering into a legally binding and enforceable contract with the Company to purchase the Gold and/ or avail any services using the payment gateway, and You shall, when necessary, pay the Purchase Price through Your Issuing Bank to the Company into the Collection Account, whether or not through the Nodal Account and whether or not using the payment gateway.
You recognise that You will, if payments are required by the Company to be made through a payment gateway, have a separate legal relationship with the payment gateway and that in any circumstances, You will have a separate legal relationship with Your bank or payment service provided which will govern all payments made by You to the Company, and acknowledge, agree and accept that you will fulfil your obligations thereunder and comply with the policies and requirements of the payment gateway, bank and payment service provider. You also recognise that the Company too has a legal relationship with the payment gateway and its banks and acknowledge, agree, accept and covenant that You will not hold the Company liable for any loss or damage that may arise to You on account of any fault, failure or requirement of the payment gateway and/ or banks. You also recognise that these Terms do not govern Your legal relationship with the payment gateway, the bank and the payment service providers and do not in any manner bind those Persons as they are Third Parties.
Refusals, cancellations or reversals as contemplated in these Terms could result in refunds or other payments becoming payable to the User.
Any refund to be made by the Company to any User or Person under these Terms shall be made:
through the same medium in which the payment was made by the User, or
to the bank account of the User, information in respect of which has been furnished to the Company by the User,
within Five (5) Business Days from the later of:
the date of reversal, refusal of service, cancellation or any other event by which the right to a refund or a payment vests in the User or Person against the Company; or
the date on which the User furnishes to the Company the particulars of the bank account or instructions as to the means in which the refund is to be made.
Any payment to be made by the Company to any user or Person in accordance with these Terms shall be made only in Indian Rupees. Where any such payment is a refund, the amount that will be refunded will be computed in Indian Rupees on the basis of the value in Indian Rupees of the relevant payment received by the Company disregarding any foreign exchange fluctuation.
Illustration: A User makes a payment to the Company of US $50 which was received by the Company after conversion at the following rate: US $1 = ₹50. The amount received by the Company thus ₹2,500. A refund of this amount to the User will be quantified at ₹2,500 only irrespective of the prevailing exchange rate.
The Company will ordinarily accept payment only in Indian Rupees. Nothing in these Terms shall be construed so as to indicate the contrary.
The Company shall not be liable for any consequences of the User furnishing erroneous or incorrect particulars of the bank account or other means of payment by which the Company is to make any payment to the User.
It is possible that a refund or other payment to be made by the Company under these Terms cannot be made to the credit of an account held with one or more particular banks. If this situation arises, notwithstanding the other provisions of these Terms, the Company shall intimate the User/ Person of the same and the User/ Person shall furnish to the Company particulars of alternative means of payment. If such alternative means of payment involves the incurrence of any expenditure on the part of the Company, the refund/ payment shall be made after deducting therefrom the amount of such expenditure.
Notwithstanding the other provisions of these Terms, any refund shall be conditional and shall be with recourse available to SafeSona in case of any misuse by the Person to whom the refund is to be made.
The Company may, where any refund or other payment is to be made by it under these Terms, require You to furnish such additional documents or information as the Company thinks fit.
The Company reserves the right to refuse to process Transactions by any Person or User with a prior history of questionable acts/ behaviour including without limitation any breach by such Person or User of any agreement between him and SafeSona or any breach/ violation of any law or any charges imposed by Issuing Bank or the breach of any policy.
The Company may, with or without cause or reason and in any circumstances whatsoever, conduct such further checks or inquiries other than as provided under these Terms as it deems fit before:
accepting or approving the receipt of a Purchase Price or any other sum from any User or Person; or
accepting the commitment of any User or Person to pay a Purchase Price or any other sum.
The Company may pay any amounts (including refunds) payable by it to a User/ Person to any such other Person as may be required by or under any Law for the time being in force including but not limited to a requirement under a garnishee order or other such order.
Without prejudice to any other provisions in these Terms in respect, the User acknowledges that the Company will not be liable for any damages, interests, costs, claims etc. resulting from:
its refusal or failure to process any transaction,
any delay in processing a transaction;
any refusal to service any Person/ User;
any cancellation of a Customer Order; and/ or
any ex post facto reversal or cancellation of a sale.
CUSTODY AND MATTERS INCIDENTAL THERETO
You understand, acknowledge and accept that:
Your purchase of Gold from the Company does not automatically contemplate the delivery of the Gold so purchased to You;
Delivery of the Gold purchased by You will be made only upon:
Your making a valid Delivery Request in accordance with these Terms; or
The expiration of the Maximum Storage Period; and
A separate fee or charge may be levied by the Company for delivery.
While the Company will not ordinarily levy fees or charges for custody/ storage within the Maximum Storage Period, You recognise and accept that the Company may do so. The Company reserves the right to levy fees or charges for custody/ storage. You are required to periodically visit and check the “pricing and fees” section on the Website to keep Yourself abreast of fees or charges for delivery/ storage/ custody.
The Vault Keeper will, unless You duly request delivery in accordance with these Terms and until such request is executed in accordance with these Terms, retain custody (but not possession) over the Gold to the extent of Your Confirmed Gold Balance in vaults or other secure storage facilities operated by it. You recognise, accept and acknowledge that as the Vault Keeper is not the Company but a Third Party, the actual physical custody of such Gold will be with that Third Party and not with the Company.
You hereby authorise the Vault Keeper to retain custody and store the Gold owned by You. You also authorise the Company to select a Vault Keeper at its sole discretion, whether such Vault Keeper is the Company itself or a Third Party.
At present, the Vault Keeper is Brinks India Private Limited.
The Company represents that to ensure that the Gold so stored is adequately protected, aside from physical and technological security measures, the Vault Keeper has secured necessary and sufficient insurance cover over the Gold at a cost borne by the Vault Keeper. Accordingly, in the event of any loss or damage, You hereby expressly authorise the Company to do all such acts, deeds and things as are necessary to make and realise insurance claims in Your stead and to take all necessary steps to protect Your interests in the Gold as well as the Gold itself.
However, You acknowledge that even reasonable and sufficient insurance cover does not protect against all eventualities and that there are risks that may fall outside the scope of the insurance taken. You thus accept that neither the Company nor the Vault Keeper will be liable for loss, damage or destruction of Gold or for non-performance of or delays in service, damage, liability, or expense directly or indirectly caused by or contributed to by or arising from:
any chemical, biological, bio-chemical, or electromagnetic weapon;
the use or operation, as a means for inflicting harm, of any computer, computer system, computer software, computer software programme, malicious code, computer virus or process or any other electronic system;
ionising radiations from or contamination by radioactivity from any nuclear fuel or from any nuclear waste or from the combustion of nuclear fuel;
the radioactive, toxic, explosive or other hazardous or contaminating properties of any nuclear installation, reactor or other nuclear assembly or nuclear component thereof;
any weapon or device employing atomic or nuclear fission and/or fusion or other like reaction or radioactive force or matter; or
the radioactive, toxic, explosive or other hazardous or contaminating properties of any radioactive matter not being radioactive isotopes, other than nuclear fuel, when such isotopes are being prepared, carried, stored, or used for commercial, agricultural, medical, scientific or other similar peaceful purposes.
Neither the Company nor the Vault Keeper shall be liable for loss, damage or destruction of the Gold or for non-performance of or delays in service, liability, cost or expense directly or indirectly caused by, resulting from or in connection with any act of terrorism or any action taken in controlling, preventing, suppressing or in any way in relation to any act of terrorism. An act of terrorism means an act, including but not limited to the use of force or violence and/or the threat thereof, of any Person or group(s) of Persons, whether acting alone or on behalf of or in connection with any organization(s) or government(s), committed for political, religious, ideological or similar purposes including the intention to influence any government and/or to put the public, or any section of the public, in fear.
You shall not have any right whatsoever to create any charge or encumbrance on the Gold owned by You and forming part of Your Confirmed Gold Balance unless You take physical custody thereof. Gold owned by You but held in the custody of the Vault Keeper must remain absolutely free from any charge, encumbrance, pledge, lien or hypothecation, by whatever name called, in whatever manner created and of whatever nature. You recognise that the Gold not being subject to any such charge, encumbrance, etc. is a necessary condition to the Vault Keeper retaining custody thereof. Any violation of this provision will result in the initiation of the Account Closure Process. The Company hereby refuses to take notice of or be a party in any manner (including as a witness) to any instrument creating or recognising or affirming any such charge, encumbrance, pledge, lien or hypothecation.
DELIVERY AND MATTERS INCIDENTAL THEREO
You shall be entitled to procure delivery of any Gold You own forming a part of Your Confirmed Gold Balance by placing a delivery request directly on the Website in the manner provided for thereon (referred to in these Terms as “Delivery Request”) provided that such delivery is to be made within any of the states listed for the time being on the Website as states to which delivery can be made. The Company reserves the right to change the states to which it is willing and able to deliver without notice to You including by ceasing to deliver to a particular state.
You acknowledge and accept that delivery of Gold owned by You shall be subject to a delivery charge that may be collected or recovered by the Company in such manner as it thinks fit.
You will be entitled to place a Delivery Request in multiples of one two (12) grams subject to a minimum of four two (42) grams per delivery. Any request for delivery not conforming with these specifications shall not constitute a Delivery Request. Therefore, the Company will not fulfil any request for delivery if the User making the request has less than four two (42) grams in such User’s Confirmed Gold Balance.
Once You place a Delivery Request, and upon the Company’s acceptance thereof, Your SafeSona Account shall immediately thereafter be provisionally debited corresponding to the quantity of the Gold sought to be delivered (“Delivered Gold”).
Within a period of 7 (Seven) Business Days of the Delivery Request being so accepted or such further period as may be required by the Company, the Company shall arrange for delivery of the Delivered Gold at the shipping address furnished by You. You shall be solely responsible for the correctness of the address furnished by You in this respect. You shall not ordinarily be entitled to change the shipping address after the Delivery Request is accepted by the Company. In the event that You wish to change the shipping address, You have to log into Your SafeSona Account and a request for such change in such form and manner as is indicated by the Company. The Company does not represent that it will accept or agree to or consent to such a request. The Company may require You to provide such documentation/ information evidencing the new address as may be required by the Company.
You acknowledge and accept that You are required to carefully examine the package delivered immediately upon delivery at Your address and in the personal presence of the courier/ delivery-man/ other Person who has brought the Delivered Gold to You, and that You shall not accept deliveries where the packaging has been tampered with.
If, however, You are of the view that the package delivered has been tampered with, You are required to:
Notify, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in such manner as the Company may provide on the Website, the Company immediately and in no case more than two (2) days after delivery of any defect in or on, or tampering of the package;
Provide such other information as may be required by the Company in this regard and request, in such manner as the Company may specify, that the package be returned (“Return Request”); and
If You place a Return Request and such Return Request is approved by the Company, within a period of 5 (five) Business Days of such approval, package the Gold delivered to You in such manner as the Company may specify and send it in such manner as the Company may specify to such address as the Company may specify, the costs of such packaging and sending being borne by the Company.
Within a period of 7 (seven) Business Days of a Return Request being placed, the Company shall either approve or reject the same and furnish reasons to You in the event of a rejection.
If a Return Request is approved, the Company shall forthwith intimate You of such approval and, within seven (7) Business Days of the Company’s receipt of the Gold sent by You in good condition, arrange for re-delivery of the Delivered Gold at the shipping address indicated by You. The costs for such shipping shall be borne by the Company alone, and not by You.
However, in the event of an unreasonable or baseless Return Request, the Company reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to take any and all action as it thinks fit, including black-listing, undertaking the Account Closure Process, blocking You from using any services or purchasing Gold from the Company or accessing or using the Website.
Where a Return Request is approved and the Gold is returned to the Company, the Company may refuse to re-deliver or replace the returned Gold if it suspects or is of the view that the returned Gold has been tampered with by the User.
Upon signing the delivery receipt or other document requiring acknowledgement of delivery, You acknowledge the receipt of the Delivered Gold in terms of the Delivery Request placed with the Company. The Company shall not be liable to You for any refund or replacement, under any circumstance, for any subsequent complaint with respect to such delivery and/or any failure on Your part to comply with these Terms.
Upon receipt of any document evidencing the completion of delivery to You, the Company will debit the Delivered Gold to Your SafeSona Account. The Confirmed Gold Balance will thus commensurately reduce (i.e., the provisional debit shall be rendered final).
It shall be Your responsibility to ensure that You are available personally to receive the Delivered Gold at the time of delivery. If You are not available at the time of delivery, the Company/ courier will attempt to contact You telephonically and thereafter attempt to deliver the package once more no later than 3 (three) Business Days after the first attempt at delivery before returning the same to the Company. In such event, the Return Request will be treated as “foregone” and the relevant Gold shall not be debited to Your SafeSona Account, provided however that SafeSona is of the opinion that the packaging has not been tamped with. Delivery charges in respect of any first subsequent return request following a Return Request so foregone shall be borne exclusively by You to the extent of the delivery charges on the foregone Return Request.
If the Company is unable to make deliveries on account of events beyond the Company’s control, the Company shall intimate You of the same and may require that the deliveries be effectuated through specific modes and/ or at specific times. You hereby agree to accept delivery in such mode and/ or at such time as the Company specifies. If such a situation arises on account of any event within Your control, You hereby agree to bear any additional costs and fees necessary for the delivery to be complete.
You are required to take delivery of Your Gold within the Maximum Storage Period. For the purposes of making a mandatory delivery to You on account of the actual or proximate expiration of the Maximum Storage Period, You are required to provide a valid address and/ or any other documents or information that the Company may in its sole discretion consider necessary.
In the event that no valid address has been provided by You during the Maximum Storage Period, the Company shall, for a period 1 (one) year commencing from the date of expiry of the Maximum Storage Period (the “Grace Period”) attempt at least three times to contact You using the contact information provided by You to the Company to obtain either (i) an address to which You would require delivery, or (ii) Your bank account details into which sale proceeds of the relevant Gold shall be deposited.
In the event that the Company has not been able to contact You during the Grace Period using the contact information provided by You or where You fail to:
take delivery of the relevant Gold for any reason whatsoever during the Grace Period (including where You have not provided any address to take delivery of such gold); or
provide the details for a valid bank account into which the proceeds of any sale of such Customer Gold is to be deposited,
upon expiry of the Grace Period, the Company may, without notice to You, purchase the relevant Gold at the SafeSona Sale Price.
The proceeds realized from such sale (“Final Sale Proceeds”) after deducting such amounts as are payable by You to the Company as storage charges for any storage after the Maximum Storage Period, shall be remitted to You if the Company has been notified of a means of remittance to You in the manner contemplated by the provisions of these Terms concerning payments and refunds. If such remittance is for any reason considered impossible or risky (in the Company’s sole discretion), the Final Sale Proceeds shall be deposited into a separate no-lien bank account created for this purpose alone and operated by the Company who shall be the sole holder of such bank account. In the event that You shall during a period of a period of 3 years commencing from the date of expiry of the applicable Grace Period (such period being the “Final Claim Period”) notify SafeSona that You are claiming the applicable Final Sale Proceeds, the SafeSona shall issue suitable instructions to transfer the Final Sale Proceeds to such bank account as You shall notify for this purpose. Please note that to claim the Final Sale Proceeds You will be required to provide details of a valid bank account and that the Final Sale Proceeds will not be transferred in the absence of such details. At no time will the Final Sale Proceeds be paid to You in cash. In the event that You shall not claim its Final Sale Proceeds within the Final Claim Period, then the Final Sale Proceeds shall be transferred to Your nominee.
You shall not be entitled to any share in any interests or other profits or gains that may arise out of the holding of the Final Sale Proceeds by the Company on account of Your failure to perform any of Your obligations to the Company. You shall not, under any circumstances whatsoever, be entitled to any interest, compensation or any other sum over and above the Final Sale Proceeds.
SALE OF THE USERS’ GOLD
You recognise and acknowledge that the Company does not represent that it will facilitate or provide for the sale by You of any Gold either to the Company or to any Third Party. The Company will not ordinarily provide for or facilitate such sale. However, the Company may do so on a best-efforts basis. Provisions of these Terms relating to the sale of Your Gold forming a part of Your Confirmed Gold Balance are in respect only of sales the Company offers to facilitate on this basis. The Company neither represents nor guarantees that this facility or provision will be available to You at all times. The Company neither represents nor guarantees that You will be able to sell any Gold without You taking physical delivery thereof, or directly to another User.
Without prejudice to any other provisions in these Terms, the Company shall be entitled to sell, without notice, Your Gold forming part of Your Confirmed Gold Balance to the extent necessary to apply the proceeds of such sale to satisfy any dues to the Company from You in respect of any fees or charges whatsoever including but not limited to Purchase Prices. The Company, in such a situation, may refuse to service or may reject a Delivery Request on this ground alone.
The Company has, at its sole discretion and at any time or under any circumstances whatsoever, the right to refuse:
to buy Gold owned by You and forming part of Your Confirmed Gold Balance; and/ or
to provide for or facilitate such sale.
The Company may, at its sole discretion, levy such fees, charges or other sums as it considers necessary or expedient to facilitate or provide for any sale of Gold owned by You and forming part of Your Confirmed Gold Balance to any Third Party or to itself buy Gold owned by You and forming part of Your Confirmed Gold Balance, and may recover such sums in such manner as it thinks fit.
Any sale of Gold owned by You to any Person other than the Company shall be at the Third-party Sale Price.
You recognise that the Company has the exclusive right to identify the purchaser of the Gold sold or intended to be sold or to be sold by You or on Your behalf and that this purchaser may be the Company itself. If the purchaser is a Third Party, the Company shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising from that Third Party’s actions. You may be required to enter into a separate agreement with the Third Party for the sale of the Gold owned by You and forming part of Your Confirmed Gold Balance.
To sell Gold owned by You through the Company or the Website to a Third Party, You shall raise a Sale Request in the manner provided for by the Company. Your raising the Sale Request shall amount to Your consenting to selling the Gold at the Third-party Sale Price.
Upon the Company accepting the Sale Request, Your SafeSona Account shall be debited to the extent of the Gold so sold (hereafter, “Sold Customer Gold”). You will be able to view this in Your Account Summary.
Subject to the other provisions of these Terms, within a period of 7 (seven) Business Days of the Sale Request being confirmed or such further period as may be required by the Company, the proceeds of the sale shall, pursuant to the Sale Request, be disbursed by the Company to the User selling the Gold. The provisions of these Terms relating to Payments shall, so far as may be, apply to the disbursement of sale proceeds by the Company to the User.
The Company does not guarantee that Your Gold will be sold at a particular price or at a competitive price or at a price that will result in a profit to You.
The Company reserves an absolute right to reject or refuse to service a Sale Request with or without cause under any circumstances whatsoever. The provisions of these Terms concerning reversal of sales made to You and cancellation of Customer Orders and all related matters shall, mutatis mutandis, apply in respect of sales of Your Gold too.
DISCLAIMERS, INDEMNITIES, LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND NO-GUARANTEES
You shall release, indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Company, and any of its contractors, agents, employees, officers, directors, shareholders, affiliates and assigns from all liabilities, claims, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses, of third parties relating to or arising out of:

Your violation of any provision of these Terms;
any information or data you supplied to the Company.
When the Company is threatened with suit or sued by a third party, the Company may seek written assurances from You concerning your promise to indemnify it. Your failure to provide such assurances may be considered by the Company to be a material breach of these Terms. The Company will have the right to participate in any defence by You of any claim by a Third Party related to Your use of the Website, the Gold or Your relationship or transactions with the Company, with counsel of the Company’s choice at its expense. The Company will reasonably cooperate in any defence by You of any claim of a Third Party at Your request and expense.

You shall be solely responsible for undertaking appropriate and effective due diligence and analysis before undertaking any transactions with or in relation to the Company.

In the case of the Sale Option, the provisions of these Terms governing the sale of Gold owned by the User shall, so far as may be, apply, provided that the Company shall sell the Gold within a period of thirty (30) Business Days from the date of selection of the option and remit the net sale proceeds after deducting all expenses, costs, fees and charges within sixty (60) Business Days of the later of such sale or the date on which the Company is intimated of a correct and workable means of payment.

Intimate the User of its inability to deliver the Gold;
Intimate the User that the Account Closure Process will be undertaken as if the Sale Option was chosen by the Company; and

Notwithstanding anything contained hereinabove, the Company reserves the right, upon the initiation of the Account Closure Process, to sell so much of the Gold owned by the User as is necessary to satisfy dues to it from the User.
