9. Recommendations for Use
Cuddly products are entirely "Made in Italy" as the entire production process, from design to manufacturing and packaging, takes place in Italy.
Our jewellery pieces are made of 420 stainless steel. For surface treatments - such as polished steel, rhodium-plated steel, plated steel - we do not use Nickel, hexavalent Chromium and any other substances that may cause skin reactions, which are expressly forbidden by Reach regulations (reference standards for the jewellery/fashion jewellery industry).
Like any other pieces of steel jewellery, whether treated or not, Cuddly links are subject to wear and use, as well as exposure to other elements such as air, liquids, or sweating.
To preserve the quality of the finish as well as the shine and integrity of your Cuddly for as long as possible, we recommend that you handle them with due care and avoid contact with water (even if waterproof), body cleansers and detergents, and that you do not wear them when bathing in swimming pools treated with chlorine or other disinfectants and/or when doing physical activity that leads to increased sweating.
As specified above, use always involves some level of wear, which can vary depending on your own use of the product. The appearance of streaks or scratches is not attributable to manufacturing defects, but just to your own use of your Cuddly.
Time can also cause the product to lose its sheen, as well as the appearance of spots and/or stains due to contact with various liquid substances allowed by health regulations (indications are always reported on the packaging of the products you use, with the relevant precautions, such as wearing gloves). To clean your Cuddly links, wash them in a solution of water and baking soda (about a teaspoon of baking soda for 33 cl of water) and dry them with an absorbent towel.
We also suggest that you avoid using excessive force when assembling and disassembling your Cuddly links. As the material features excellent elasticity, the opening system makes it very easy to link your Cuddly links without affecting the resistance of the material itself. Such resistance may be affected if you use excessive, unnecessary force to link the pieces together.
WARNING: Cuddly products are not suitable for children under 7 years as they contain small details. The risk for young children is that they may play with them and accidentally swallow some small parts, putting their safety at risk.
Although this is not our responsibility, we recommend that you never leave your Cuddly links unattended in the presence of young children or leave them in a place where they can be easily reached.
10. Force Majeure
Cuddly S.r.l.s. shall never be liable for failure to comply with any of the obligations arising from these Terms and Conditions of Sale where that the failure is caused by unforeseeable circumstances and/or force majeure, including, but not limited to, natural disasters, terrorist acts, network failures and/or blackouts.
These Terms and Conditions of Sale represent the entire agreement between Cuddly S.r.l.s. and users of the Site with respect to the purchase of products through the Site.
12. Suspension and/or modification and/or termination of sales on the Site
Cuddly S.r.l.s. reserves the right to suspend, modify or terminate sales on the Site. Cuddly S.r.l.s. cannot in any way be held liable to you or third parties for any such suspension, modification or termination.
13. PATENT PENDING & TRADEMARKS
Cuddly products are protected by the rights under the Italian Industrial Property Code, as patent applications have been filed nationally and internationally. Any attempt at imitating and/or counterfeiting our products will force us to take legal action to protect our rights and receive compensation for any damages arising from unauthorised use of our intellectual property by physical and/or legal entities.
