4. Cancellations / Pre-Shipment Order Sell-Backs
Once you have placed an order through shop.goldline.com you have entered into a legally binding and enforceable contract, and cannot cancel the order. However, after your order has been placed, but prior to shipment, you can choose to sell your product back to Goldline at Goldline’s then current ask price (“Ask Price”) on the day that we receive your written request to purchase your product back before shipment. Credit/debit card orders may not be sold back to Goldline later than 24 hours after the time your order is placed. All pre-shipment sell-back requests must be made during normal business hours, Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM PST. Goldline reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to accept your pre-shipment sell-back request. For pre-shipment sell-back requests, the difference between the original Purchase Price and the Ask Price at the time your pre-shipment sell-back request is processed (the “Market Loss Fees”) will be charged to you. Any and all market gains on cancellations shall belong solely to Goldline. After Goldline has shipped the product, the order is final and cannot be altered or sold back to Goldline in the manner described above. If you refuse shipment, the product will be returned to us and you will have to pay to have it reshipped.
Pre-shipment sell-back requests must be approved over telephone, live chat, or email. Upon approval, Goldline will provide you with a sell-back confirmation and the amount of the applicable Market Loss Fees. In the event of a confirmed sell-back, you expressly authorize Goldline to bill the credit or debit card on file for the amount of the Market Loss Fee. Alternatively, in the event that your credit or debit card is denied, Goldline reserves the right to invoice you, in which case, you expressly agree to pay the Market Loss Fee, in full, within ten (10) business days. Any additional, future orders will not be permitted unless and until all Market Loss Fees are paid in full.
Goldline reserves the right to refuse or cancel an order for any reason or for no reason at all, regardless of payment method or price confirmation, including without limitation, for orders Goldline deems questionable or suspicious, for orders Goldline deems to be a significant risk, when the confirmed price is incorrect, for abrupt movements in the precious metals market, and/or when Goldline does not receive payment within the required timeframe.
Goldline is not responsible for pricing or typographical errors and expressly reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to cancel any and all orders placed with respect to such items. In the event of a cancelled order Goldline will contact you directly with notification of the cancellation.
5. Exchanges and Returns
As noted above, under Cancellations / Pre-Shipment Order Sell-Backs, after Goldline has shipped the product, the order cannot be cancelled. If, within five (5) business days from the date that you received your product, you would like to exchange the product you purchased for a different product sold on shop.goldline.com, or you would like to return the products purchased, you must notify Goldline’s Customer Service Department via telephone at 800-963-9798. Please note Goldline will not accept any exchanges after such date. If you choose to exchange a product, you are fully responsible for all taxes, as well as all return shipping, insurance and handling costs. Goldline may reject any returned or exchanged item that does not conform to these terms. Returns and exchanges are subject to Goldline’s Market Loss Policy.
6. Goldline’s Market Loss Policy
All pre-shipment sell-back requests, exchanges and returns are subject to any market loss realized. This means you will be responsible for any deficit between the original Purchase Price and the Ask Price at the time your pre-shipment sell-back request, exchanges or returns are processed (the “Market Loss Fees”). Market gains on pre-shipment sell-back requests, exchanges or returns shall remain the sole property of Goldline.
Without limiting any other legal or equitable rights and remedies that may be available to Goldline, Goldline reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to apply any and all of your funds in its possession to satisfy your monetary obligations to Goldline and/or may offset any obligations that Goldline may have to you, including Market Loss Fees.
Although most orders are shipped within one business day, in unusual circumstances, and depending upon the manner of delivery, shipment may take up to twenty-eight (28) calendar days from receipt by Goldline of payment in full. You are fully responsible for applicable taxes, and shipping and handling charges, unless notified otherwise. Each package over $1000 requires a signature upon delivery. Goldline fully insures all of its shipments. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you it will be covered by our insurance policy.
Goldline will not accept responsibility for any losses if you have left instructions with any carriers or delivery service to leave parcels unattended for you without the need for a signature or if you have given them instructions to forward your package or leave your package with a third party. When we ship to you, if products are lost or damaged in transit, Goldline is responsible to pursue any claim with the insurance company; provided, however, you agree to cooperate with us in filing a claim for damaged/lost merchandise in any manner we may reasonably request, including the signing of an affidavit describing the circumstances surrounding the damaged/lost merchandise. If we determine the package is lost or damaged, in our sole discretion, we will file an insurance claim. Once the claim is filed, we reserve the right to re-ship your items or refund your money at our sole discretion.
Please note that Goldline will not be responsible for reimbursements or insurance claims on packages that are successfully delivered as addressed. Our liability and insurance ceases the moment the package is signed for or left at the specified delivery address. Any issues or claims with a shipment MUST be reported to Goldline, in writing within 2 business days of receipt of your order, otherwise they will be deemed to be waived by you.
In the event that a package becomes lost in transit, it is your responsibility to notify Goldline of such within three (3) days of the anticipated delivery date. While Goldline will make reasonable efforts to locate the package, Goldline will not be held liable for packages lost in transit without notice within three (3) days of the anticipated delivery date. Except as my otherwise covered by Goldline’s insurance, you are solely responsible for any packages, along with the contents and monetary value thereof, that are lost in transit unless you notify Goldline within three (3) days of the anticipated delivery date.

YOU AND GOLDLINE AGREE THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
You and Goldline agree that any arbitration shall be administered by JAMS under its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures when the amount in controversy is greater than $250,000 and JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules when the amount in controversy is less than or equal to $250,000 (collectively the “Arbitration Rules”.) Provided, however, that this Agreement shall supersede the Arbitration Rules to the extent of any conflict between the Agreement and the Arbitration Rules. The arbitration proceedings shall be kept in strictest confidence. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator who shall be either a retired California Superior Court judge or a retired California appellate justice selected in accordance with the Arbitration Rules from JAMS’ panel of Los Angeles, California arbitrators. You and Goldline agree the exclusive venue for arbitration proceedings, including any arbitration hearing, will be Los Angeles, California. You and Goldline further agree to the personal jurisdiction of the courts of the State of California located in the County of Los Angeles, or of the United States of America for the Central District of California, to enforce these arbitration provisions described in this Agreement. You are agreeing to this arbitration provision on behalf of yourself and on behalf of your heirs, administrators, executors, successors and assigns and all persons claiming a beneficial interest in your account.
YOUR AND GOLDLINE’S LIABILITY IN ALL CLAIMS WHETHER THEY SOUND IN TORT, CONTRACT, WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU FOR THE ITEMS IN DISPUTE LESS THE ITEMS’ FAIR MARKET VALUE AS OF THE DATE ANY ARBITRATION PROCEEDING IS COMMENCED. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL A PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, ADDITIONAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES EVEN IF A PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. You and Goldline expressly agree the arbitrator may not: (a) award any exemplary, incidental, indirect or consequential damages, including damages for lost profits to any party, and the parties waive any right to recover such damages, or (b) alter, amend, modify of suspend performance hereunder.
Each party shall be responsible for his, her or its own costs and attorney’s fees incurred in connection with any claim, arbitration, lawsuit, legal action, dispute or proceeding of any kind arising from or related to any transaction between you and Goldline. In any arbitration arising out of or related to any transaction between you and Goldline, the arbitrator may not award costs or attorney’s fees to the prevailing party (ies); each side is to bear his, her or its costs and attorney’s fees.
You and Goldline agree that any claim, arbitration, lawsuit, legal action, dispute or proceeding of any kind arising out of or relating to any transaction between you and Goldline is barred unless commenced within one (1) year from the date of that transaction. The parties acknowledge that, but for this waiver, he, she or it might have a longer time period to initiate a claim under state or federal law.
You and Goldline agree that controversies arising out of or relating in any way to any transaction with Goldline shall first be submitted to JAMS for mediation and if the matter is not resolved through mediation, then it shall be submitted to JAMS for final and binding arbitration pursuant to this section 25. Either party may commence mediation by providing to JAMS and the other party a written request for mediation, setting forth the subject of the dispute and the relief the arbitrator of the parties’ claims absent the parties’ express written consent to the contrary. You and Goldline agree that they will participate in the mediation in good faith and that they will share equally in its costs. Provided, however, that if the parties resolved all disputes through mediation under this section 22 - Mandatory Mediation, Goldline shall pay all mediation fees charged by JAMS.
All offers, promises, conduct and statements, whether oral or written, made in the course of the mediation by any of the parties, their agents, employees, experts and attorneys, and by the mediator or any JAMS employees, are confidential, privileged and inadmissible for any purpose, including impeachment, in any arbitration or other proceeding involving the parties, provided that evidence that is otherwise admissible or discoverable shall not be rendered inadmissible or non-discoverable as a result of its use in the mediation.
Either party may initiate arbitration with respect to the matters submitted to mediation by filing a written demand for arbitration at any time following the initial mediation session or at any time following forty-five (45) calendar days from the date of filing the written request for mediation, whichever occurs first (“Earliest Initiation Date”.)
The mediation may continue after the commencement of arbitration if the parties so desire. At no time prior to the Earliest Initiation Date shall either side initiate an arbitration related to this Agreement except to pursue a provisional remedy that is authorized by law or by the Arbitration Rules or by agreement of the parties.
All applicable statutes of limitation and defenses based upon the passage of time shall be tolled from the date either party provides a written request for mediation in accordance with this Section 22 – Mandatory Mediation until fifteen (15) calendar days after the Earliest Initiation Date. The parties will take such action, if any, required to effectuate such tolling.
