Customers have an option of purchasing gold either as bullion or as gold-backed digital currency through Kinesis.
Legacy Gold undertakes to only supply assayed bullion bars as good delivery from recognised market professionals and according to the practices which exist in the local market.
This bullion is held as weighed and numbered bars in a form generally acceptable in settlement of local bullion markets sales, or as fine gold grain. In both forms the gold is guaranteed 999.9 fine gold.
Your physical gold is stored, wholly in your name, under the control of Legacy Gold’s chosen supply partner, in secure vaults. Title to the gold reverts to the name of the Customer only when cleared funds have been received in the Company’s bank account or currency wallet.
For reasons of security, the location is not published, but Customers are at liberty to physically see their gold by prior arrangement with the Company. Such requests will only be granted for holdings in excess of 0.5kg, although the Company will consider every request. Requests should be made to email@example.com .
The Legacy Gold Guarantee
- The gold is always stored in the name of the Customer.
- All orders are always backed by the identical quantity of gold in storage so, although extremely unlikely, all Customer requests are able to be fulfilled in the event of a 100% request for delivery at any time.
- We will endeavour to buy back any genuine Betts / Legacy Gold branded bars (with proof of purchase and if the chain of integrity can be proven), at the advertised price of gold on that day, although there is no obligation to do so on behalf of the Company.
The Company undertakes to pay storage and insurance fees on your behalf for the first 6 months following your first order. After 6 months have elapsed, the Company reserves the right to charge storage fees back to you, the Customer, at the rates published on the website.
The Company policy is to not deem storage and insurance charges as a ‘profit-centre’ for the Company but instead, will
pass such fees on at a level approaching the cost to the Company.
The Company has the same approach when dealing with postage costs which, together with types of delivery available, are published on the website.
Customers may request delivery of their gold at any time. Delivery will only be made to the address registered on our system.
Minimum delivery is for 1g and multiples of 1g, although the Company reserves the right to increase this minimum delivery to 10g bars. 1g bars attract a higher cost pro rata for handling and delivery. It is therefore more cost effective and it’s recommended, that Customers take delivery of bars of 10g in weight or greater at any one time.
Where you have requested a delivery to your address, the Customer accepts that the acts or omissions of any person at that address are fairly deemed to be acts or omissions by the Customer. The Customer accepts an obligation to inspect their package prior to signing for receipt and acknowledge that a signature applied by a package recipient at their address evidences a receipt of a package in appropriate condition.
The Company accepts no responsibility for the loss of goods delivered at the Customers instruction to multiple occupancy addresses such as flats and complex buildings, where someone other than the stated addressee signs for and accepts receipt of goods. Customers must ensure that parcel delivery arrangements are in place to accept and receive goods at the nominated delivery address.
Once a delivery has been accepted, liability and responsibility for the gold is relinquished by the Company and passes to the Customer.
The Customer agrees that excluding their rightful refusal to sign for receipt of the package, any returns to the Company for whatever reason shall be at their own expense.
All orders are submitted online, in the Customer’s personal Back Office and accepted by the Company at the London Gold Fix price or the advertised exchange rate of other forms of currency which may be used, as at 15.00 / 3.00pm on that day.
To qualify to be charged at that price, an order must be placed and completed (payment submitted) before 13.00 / 1.00pm on that day. All orders received after that time and prior to 13.00 / 1.00pm the next day, will be charged at the London Gold Fix as at 15.00 /3.00pm on that following day or the next working day in the event of weekends and bank holidays.
The Customer authorises the Company to vary the amount payable for their order in accordance with the final Fix Price / exchange rate on that day, to a maximum of +/- 10% of the price advertised at the time of placing the order.
When selling gold back to the Company, the Company will pay the London Gold Fix price as at 15.00 / 3.00pm that day, if received before 13.00 / 1.00pm.
The Customer understands that they may be exposed to certain factors which are beyond the control of Legacy Gold and as such the Company may not be held responsible. Such factors include but are not limited to:
- Gold price movements: Customers are exposed to the risk of potential loss arising from a falling bullion price during the time in which they own bullion.
- Fluctuations in the value of both crypto currency and fiat currency.
- Money politics: Governments and other agencies seeking currency stability, or for other reasons, might seek to constrain or tax the ownership of bullion to the disadvantage of its owners.
- Identity theft: If this happens a Customer may be at risk of unauthorised access to their account.
- System availability: Computer outages may happen and mean that the ordering platform is inaccessible for periods of time. This could prevent you from executing a transaction which you would otherwise have made.
- CUSTOMER RISK
The Company buys and sells goods based on the global metal market’s prices, which are outside the Company’s control, and change frequently. The historical performance of the price, or the global metal market’s prices of goods is not a reliable indicator of future prices.
- CANCELLATION RIGHTS
You have no statutory right to cancel the contract if you change your mind once an order is placed. This is because the prices of the goods and metal are subject to fluctuation: see the Risk notice above.
Note: You can however choose to terminate your order at any time prior to delivery or final processing of your order. This will incur additional charges including but not limited to, a handling charge and a fee based on any adverse movement in the commodity price of your gold.
Regulation & legislation
Modern financial services businesses in the UK and throughout Europe tend to be companies which deal in paper-based instruments generally called 'securities'. These services are subject to increasing legal regulation.
Because Legacy Gold offers a credit-free environment, and because it deals in the absolute ownership of physical gold acquired on the spot market, and not paper-based contractual rights extending beyond the normal settlement period of the spot market, it falls outside the defined scope of formal financial services regulation. Instead, the London bullion market is regulated by traditional English property law, and not by the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.
Exclusions & liability
For sales and purchases conducted in the UK, the following provisions set out the entire financial liability of Legacy Gold (including any liability for the acts or omissions of its employees, agents and sub-contractors) to you in respect of:
- any breach of these Terms and Conditions; and
- any representation, statement or tortious act or omission including negligence arising under or in connection with these Terms and Conditions.
All warranties, conditions and other terms implied by statute or common law (save for the conditions implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979) are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from these Terms and Conditions.
Nothing in these Terms and Conditions excludes or limits the liability of Legacy Gold
- for death or personal injury caused by Legacy Gold’s negligence; or
- under section 2(3) of the Consumer Protection Act 1987; or
- for any matter in which it would be illegal for Legacy Gold to exclude or attempt to exclude its liability; or
- for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation. Subject to the above:
- Legacy Gold’s total liability in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise, arising in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of these Terms and Conditions shall be limited to the value of your bullion stored by the Company; and
- Legacy Gold shall not be liable to you for any pure economic loss, fall in the value of your bullion, loss of profit, loss of business, depletion of goodwill or otherwise, in each case whether direct, indirect or consequential, or any claims for consequential compensation whatsoever (howsoever caused) which arise out of or in connection with these Terms and Conditions.
You are responsible for paying such local taxes as are or may be applied on bullion purchases, bullion sales and bullion custody, and on any associated charges, and such taxes are added to charges where appropriate.
Death or incapacity
In the event of death or incapacity, the Customer permits the Company to allow your account to be maintained on your behalf by your duly authorised solicitor, appointed legal representative or appointed executors.
The system is scheduled to operate continually except where planned software updates and maintenance is necessary, which is usually carried out on weekends or in the evening. The Company will always strive to provide an advance warning notice via the website for planned downtime. There may also be planned service interruptions at other times where maintenance requires urgent action which cannot wait until a weekend. Such service interruptions will, where possible, be planned at times of lower public demand for the service.
The Company shall not be liable to you for any delay or failure by it to perform its obligations if such delay or failure arises from any unforeseeable causes beyond its reasonable control including, but not limited to, acts of God, floods, lightning, earthquakes, labour disputes, shortages, rationing, utility failures, war, terrorism, riot, embargoes, and actions of any government agency or subdivision thereof.
This agreement is governed by English law and the parties hereby accept the jurisdiction of the English courts, such that any proceedings brought against the Company shall be brought in the English courts but nothing in this agreement shall prevent Legacy Gold from taking proceedings against an individual or company in any court of competent jurisdiction.
