To our customers:
Back in 2012, we were the first U.S. company to enter into a partnership with a company called Recipero, to use its CheckMEND tool to ensure we can identify any lost or stolen devices. This was a big step in helping prevent the theft of consumer devices because it ensured that each of you, our customers, the rightful owners, would be the only ones to benefit from trading in those old devices.
Today we became the first consumer electronics device trade-in site to join Recipero’s CheckMEND Charter. The CheckMEND Charter was designed to create a set of best practices that prevent trade activities of stolen consumer electronics. And in addition to protecting consumers, the Charter’s participants pledge to actively help law enforcement agencies combat theft and fraud related to consumer electronics. CheckMEND has stringent guidelines to be part of the Charter and members must meet a number of requirements (included below).
Gazelle has always promised that our customers will have a fast, easy and secure experience. Going into 2014, we vow to all of our customers that they — and their devices — will always be safe with Gazelle, and we’ll continue to take steps to keep our promise.
Israel Ganot, CEO, Gazelle
