Odissa acts as a marketplace venue to allow users who comply with The Guild of Jewellery Designers Ltd's policies to offer, sell and buy goods within a fixed-price format. The Guild of Jewellery Designers Ltd is not directly involved in the business dealings between sellers and buyers. As a result, The Guild of Jewellery Designers Ltd has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. The Guild of Jewellery Designers Ltd does not pre-examine users or the content or information provided by users. The Guild of Jewellery Designers Ltd cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a business dealing.
Consequently, The Guild of Jewellery Designers Ltd does not hold legal ownership or transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.
The Guild of Jewellery Designers Ltd cannot guarantee the true identity, age, and nationality of a user and encourages you to exchange information directly with potential buyers through the tools available on the Site.
You agree that Odissa is a marketplace venue and as such is not responsible or liable for any content, for example, data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links posted by you, other users, or outside parties on Odissa.
