Welcome to the Sherlock Holmes application (“App”), which allows you to detect whether diamonds are natural or lab grown, using our Dr. Watson detector box, Sherlock Holmes 4.0 detector box or BIG Sherlock Detector Box (each, a “Detector”). The App was developed and is operated by Sherlock Holmes Detect Ltd., an Israeli privately-held company (“Company”, or “we”, “us”, “our”).
The following key points are provided for your reading convenience, but do not substitute the full Terms that are provided thereafter.
- Subject to these Terms, we give you a limited license to use the App through your mobile device.
- When you use the App, you must comply with our instructions, adhere to any applicable law and refrain from using the App in a manner prohibited by these Terms.
- Please read the Detector’s user manual before using the App and follow the instructions on the App’s screen when performing tests. Note that test results may be affected by several factors, including the type of phone you are using , and while we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy, our solution’s accuracy rate in detecting lab grown diamonds is close to 100%.
- Use of the App is subject to payment of a period subscription fee.
- You bare sole liability for the content of the files you upload to the App.
- We own all rights, title and interest in and to the App. You may not use the App other than as expressly permitted in these Terms. You own all rights, title and interest in and to Your Content. However, by using the App, you grant us a license to use Your Content as detailed herein.
- Your use of the App is subject to the terms and conditions that govern the application marketplace from which you downloaded the App. The operator of the applications marketplace is a beneficiary of these Terms and may enforce them against you.
- You assume full and exclusive responsibility for your use of the App. We and our staff will not be liable for any indirect damage suffered by you or anyone acting on your behalf, arising from or related to the App or your use of it.
- These Terms are governed by the laws of the state of Israel and are subject to the jurisdiction of competent courts in the District of Tel-Aviv-Jaffa, Israel.
- We may occasionally amend these Terms. Your continued use of the App indicates your consent to the amended terms.
By using the Detector that connects to the App by Bluetooth or a USB cable, the App helps you to check whether particular diamonds are most likely to be natural or lab grown – be they loose-diamonds, mounted on jewelry, single stones, large parcels, or any size Meleé Diamonds.
USE OF THE APP
Subject to these Terms, we grant you a non-exclusive, limited, revocable, non-transferrable, non-sublicensable, unassignable license, to download, install and use the App on your smartphone (provided that it is compatible with our Detector, as specified in the user manual). You may only use the App as permitted by these Terms.
Use of the App requires prior registration and payment of a subscription fee, as detailed below.
Testing diamonds requires Bluetooth or USB connectivity between your mobile device and the Detector. To test a diamond, place it inside the Detector’s testing area, focus the camera, click on Run Test ,and wait a few seconds to get the result picture. Diamonds that fluoresce in blue (and blue only) are very likely Natural. Diamonds that are marked wholly or partially in red, or that fluoresce in any color OTHER than blue are very likely lab grown. If you are unsure of the resulting color, we recommend that you deem the tested diamond as lab grown diamond and send it for further testing. Please note that due to this unique testing process, the App cannot be used by people with color vision deficiency.
Please note that diamonds can only be tested when loose, in a thin plastic bag, or mounted on jewelry, and when your phone’s camera is positioned appropriately, as instructed in the manual, to fully capture the diamond. Any other conditions of testing the diamonds, e.g., covered by a thick plastic or glass, will very likely impair the accuracy of the results. To prevent errors in your test process or results, we highly encourage you to read the Detector’s operation manual before performing your first test with the App.
Test results may be affected by several factors that we cannot control, such as the placement and angle of the diamond inside the Detector’s testing area, your phone’s camera, or your phone’s screen type. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that the test results will always be completely accurate, but when used correctly, our solution’s accuracy rate in detecting lab grown diamonds is close to 100%. USE OF THE APP IS AT YOUR OWN RISK, AND ANY DECISION MADE IN RELIANCE ON THE TEST RESULTS IS YOU EXCLUSIVE RESPONSIBILITY. WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE YOU MAY INCUR AS A RESULT OF YOUR RELIANCE ON THE TESTS RESULTS.

Use of our App is subject to payment of a monthly subscription fee, in the rates specified at [link to webpage containing fee rates] or as specified during your registration. Subscription fees vary based on your chosen storage capacity for tests results. Payment is available through credit card, or any other method as the Company may make available from time to time.
The Company reserves the right to change, from time to time and in its discretion, the subscription fees, and the available subscription plans. A notification of such change will appear in the App, and the change will become effective a reasonable time thereafter, and in any case, not before the end of your current subscription cycle.
Fees as presented on the App are exclusive of taxes. By using the App, you authorize us to charge you for any applicable taxes, in accordance with tax laws.
Your payments are processed by external service providers, and not by the Company. Therefore, payments may be subject to additional commissions charged by those external service providers, such as Apple Pay and Google Pay, in accordance with these external service providers’ terms and conditions. You will bear sole liability for paying those commissions.
You may cancel your subscription at any time by deleting your account or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Cancellation does not entitle you to any refund of fees you paid for the then-current subscription cycle, but so long as you send us your cancellation request at least five business days before the end of the current subscription cycle, we will no longer charge you for subscription cycles subsequent to the one during which you submitted your cancellation request.
If your payment cannot be processed, for any reason, we will contact you to complete the payment. If you fail to complete the payment within 14 days from our notice to you, we will suspend your account and block your access to the App. We will retain your tests results for two months following our notice, and will delete them thereafter if you do not complete the payment within this period.
