Our contract with you and the services we provide

deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes; or
update the services to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.
If you do not pay us the membership fee whenever this is due (see clause 10.2), we may suspend supply of the services until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will endeavour to contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the services.

When creating your account, you will receive a sign-in link to enable you to access your account. You should keep all of your account details safe and not give these to anyone to avoid anyone else using the services on your behalf.
Restrictions on the services

use our service for anything other than the return of lost items unless we have specifically told you otherwise;

disassemble, de-compile, reverse engineer or create derivative works based on the whole or any part of our services or copy any of our services for any reason.

Your rights when you cancel your membership will depend on whether or not we have told you we cannot provide the service and when you decide to end the contract.
If you are cancelling your membership for a reason set out below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any services which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
we have told you about an error in the price or description of the services you have been offered and you do not wish to continue with your membership; or
we have suspended supply of the services for technical reasons or reasons outside of our control.

If you cancel after this 14-day period has ended, your membership will end when your membership term expires but you will still be required to pay for this period.
When you don't have the right to change your mind.
You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of services once we have begun processing or the services have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running.
You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of any tags purchased, as this is a bespoke product displaying unique information, and is therefore made to order.

you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 14 days of us reminding you that payment is due; or
you do anything which these terms specifically restrict or you do something which we reasonably believe leads us to believe that you will break any of the terms of the contact between us.

As part of our service, other users may offer rewards for items found. In relation to any rewards, please note the following;
we cannot guarantee the payment or offer of a reward in relation to any of our services. The decision to offer a reward is entirely the responsibility of each user.
where we think, in our reasonable opinion, that any user is in breach of these terms, we may suggest or require the withholding of a reward.
where you are the owner of any items which are found, you, and not Returnable, are responsible for the payment of a reward to the finder. We will deduct the amount of any reward you offer provided all the relevant terms have been met from the payment card you have on file with us.
Our responsibility to you
Our services include the provision of a communication tool between you and other users which can be used to arrange the return of lost items. Where you use or are involved in the use of these services, we will not be responsible for:
any failure by any other user or person in relation to whom you use the service to do anything they indicated. We are not responsible for things other users may do or may fail to do whether they are based in the UK or in another country;
anything which another user may communicate to you on a chat whether this be offensive or illegal content or any false or misleading statements. We will take all reasonable care to ensure our users are aware of their obligations around what they can and can’t do with our services but we are unable to have complete control over this;
any failure of any other person to return an item to you which is a result of any incorrect information you have provided on our website including, but not limited to, your contact details or the item description; or
any communication you may have with another user of our service but with whom you have communicated with other than through our communication tools.
Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or for breach of your legal rights in relation to the services as summarised at clause 9.2.
We only supply the services for domestic and private use. If you use the services for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the services, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the services in the English courts.
