Terms & Conditions
All products sold to us are checked by our quality control team or a quality control team of one of our nominated partners during the quality assessment process. If your product(s) fail our quality assessment process it will be because the item that you have sent to us is NOT as you have described it when entering the details (providing the required information as prompted by us) of this item on our webservice(s), website(s) and/or mobile application(s) and therefore the information you have provided during the selling process to us does not match that gathered by our quality control team when reviewing the product(s) that you have sent to us.
Each product(s) that you sell to us should match, where applicable, and, including but not limited to the, make, model, size, colour and condition that you ascribe it when using our webservice(s), website(s) and/or mobile application(s) to sell your product(s) to/on SellMyTech. When we quality assess your product(s) at our premises, or in a place nominated by us solely, we will use the Condition Specifications given below, which were presented to you on our webservice(s), website(s) and/or mobile application(s) when you described the condition of the item to make sure that the product(s) you sent to us is as you described it on our webservice(s), website(s) and/or mobile application(s) when deriving a SellMyTech valuation/offer price for the item(s) you wish to sell. The Condition you described the product(s) to be in, when selling your product(s), to us on our webservice(s), website(s) and/or mobile application(s) directly affects the price we offer for it and if we determine the condition to be different from that which you described we may offer you a revised valuation. The prices offered to you by us are valid for seven (7) days from the date that they are offered to you and you complete a valid transaction on our webservice(s), website(s) and/or mobile application(s) and after that period you understand, accept and agree that should we not process your items at our warehouse within the period (ten (10) days) that the offer price is valid, that we may revalue your items. Details of what happens when we offer a revised valuation for product(s) are contained within these Terms and Conditions.

8.5 To exercise these rights please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. If you inform us that you no longer wish to send your Item, we will attempt to remove the relevant Item or order from our system so that we know you will not be sending your Item or Items.

The Condition Specifications set out on our website supersede all others. You can find a copy of the Condition Specifications here.

IMPORTANT: Please Read Carefully
15.7 If your Item fails our Quality Assessment process or we have the right to re-value your Item in accordance with condition 15.6, we will contact you via email and inform you of the new Valuation for the Item.
15.8 You have seven (7) days known as the ‘Grace Period’ to accept or decline the revised Valuation that we have provided to you on email. To be clear, this seven (7) day period begins when the revised valuation email is sent to you and ends 168 hours later.
15.9 You will be provided with the option to ‘Accept’ or ‘Decline’ our revised Valuation by email.
15.10 You must either accept or decline our offer by responding in writing, within the 7 day ‘Grace Period’. Failure to do so within the Grace Period may result in us proceeding with your transaction at the revised Valuation. If you contact us during the Grace Period using another method we will try to update our system to record your decision but we cannot guarantee this.
15.11 During the Grace Period, we commit to send you at least one reminder that you need to accept or refuse our proposal. If 24 hours before the end of the Grace Period, we have not received your acceptance or refusal of our offer under condition 15.10 above, we will make efforts to send you a final reminder before the Grace Period ends. This will not affect our rights under condition 15.10 above, however.
15.12 If you accept the revised Valuation, the new price agreed between you and us for the Item will be updated in the relevant order, we will present this information to you in the “My Account” section of the Website and then process your payment for the relevant Item. This revised Valuation will be the new price paid for that Item.
15.13 We cannot reverse any Valuations accepted in error. All accepted Valuations will be processed at the revised price and paid using the customer’s chosen payment option.
15.14 The revised Valuation is the last and only price we will offer you for that Item.
16.15 If you choose to decline the revised Valuation offered within the Grace Period then we will return your Item to the address you have provided in your SellMyTech account at no additional cost.
15.16 If you take no action and do not respond to this revised Valuation email correctly within the Grace Period then we will automatically process payment for the Item at the revised Valuation price we have sent to you. You accept and agree that we are not liable in any way whatsoever for any loss of any kind, direct or indirect which you may suffer as a result of your failure to act within the Grace Period and ‘Accept’ or ‘Decline’ the revised Valuation.
15.17 In this instance the Item will not be returned and you will be paid the revised Valuation for the Item.
15.18 We assume no responsibility whatsoever for the validity of the details that you provide and it is your sole responsibility at all times to ensure that the Payment Details you have provided on the Website are correct, complete and accurate.
16.1 If you choose to decline the revised Valuation within the Grace Period, then the Item will be returned by our chosen courier to you at no additional cost and the Item shall be dispatched the next Working Day. Please note that we cannot guarantee the return of any additional accessories sent with your item (i.e. headphones, the original box, screen protectors, cases, etc), so please remove these before sending your order. For clarity, the charger is not considered an ‘accessory’ for laptops.
16.2 It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the address details provided in your Website account are valid, accurate and correct and you accept and agree that we shall not be liable for any loss of any kind that you may incur due to Items being returned by us to an invalid or incorrect address as a result of your failure to provide valid, accurate and up to date address details in your SellMyTech account. Please be aware that your Item will only be delivered to the address that you provide.
16.3 We will alert you via email that your Item is due to be delivered to your given address on the day that the Item is due to be delivered.
16.4 If your Item is not delivered when expected by our courier, you must notify us within 7 days of the agreed delivery date. If you fail to notify us of non-delivery within 7 days we shall not be liable for any loss or damage incurred as a result of non-delivery.
16.5 Upon notification of non-delivery you will be required to complete a ‘Letter of Denial of Receipt’ (a copy of which we will provide you with) within 7 days of us providing you with the same. If you fail to submit a Letter of Denial of Receipt in accordance with our instructions within 7 days we shall not be liable for any loss or damage incurred as a result of non-delivery.
16.6 We shall be entitled to make such investigations as we deem necessary to satisfy ourselves of the validity of any such claim and will liaise with the relevant carrier to confirm if non-delivery has occurred.
16.7 If the courier notifies us that a Package has been “Lost in Transit” (meaning that the Package can no longer be tracked or located by the courier for delivery to the customer) you will not be required to complete a ‘Letter of Denial’. We will conduct our own internal investigations and once we are satisfied that the Package cannot be located and delivered to you, we will contact you in writing to confirm that your Package has been Lost in Transit and provide you with payment of the Valuation in accordance with condition 16.8.
16.8 In calculating the value of any claim we shall accept no other valuations than our original value for the Items that you may be claiming for and under no circumstances do we accept any liability for any other loss, damage or compensation resulting from our return of your Item.
16.9 If your claim is successful then we will notify you in writing and payment of the Valuation will be made via the payment method specified in your account on the Website.
17.1 We do not accept Items which have a BIOS password or devices which have any kind of computer tracking software which remains active on the device.
17.2 It is your sole responsibility to ensure that your Item does not have a BIOS password or any kind of computer tracking software active on your device.

17.4 We will return your device to you and if you wish to supply your device you must remove the BIOS password and/or the computer tracking software.
17.5 In the event that you have sent a device contrary to this section, we reserve the right to charge an administration fee to cover the cost of transporting your device.
17.6 If, after testing your device again, it is found that the security features have been removed we will assess your device as normal under our standard Quality Assessment process.
18.2 We check every device received against the National CheckMEND Register (the “Register”). The Register identifies devices that have been lost, stolen, blocked or barred with a ‘red flag’.
18.3 If your device is found to have a ‘red flag’ against it, you will have twenty-eight (28) days to contact CheckMEND (the “Quarantine Period”), who will provide advice on how to prove that you are the legal owner of the device.
18.4 You can begin the process by visiting the CheckMEND website at http://www.checkmend.com/uk/. You will be asked to provide a brief description of the issue, as well as your certificate ID number which we will provide you with in our notification email in accordance with condition 18.1.
18.5 We cannot send your device back to you or make any payments during this period, and are legally required to dispose of the device if the ‘red flag’ against your device is not lifted within the Quarantine Period. If 24 hours before the end of the Quarantine Period, the ‘red flag’ has not been lifted and you have not contacted us to request an extension to the Quarantine Period, we will make efforts to send you a final reminder before the period ends. This will not affect our rights under this condition 18.
18.6 If you have any more questions on why we reject your Item, or if you need to extend the 28 day Quarantine Period, then you can contact our Customer Service team via email@example.com.
18.7 We accept no liability or responsibility for rejecting your Item or not returning your Item to you in these circumstances.
