The certificate which is made available to you via e-mail (provided your email id is shared with us) or printed by your retailer/CV also captures vital terms & conditions of the insurance.
    OID stands for Ornament ID. This is a unique alpha numeric identity code for the jewellery you intend to put into O-Locker. OID is generated by your retailer/ certified valuer by using the features of our website available to him using his registered id & password.
    OID is a mandatory requirement for subscription and use of O-Locker services.
    It is important to define the underlying assets correctly in order to ensure that claims are settled without hassles. OID identifies the jewellery by capturing all its vital information including image. Since insurance coverage is OID specific, OID generation is mandatory.
    As of now, your retailer & certified valuer (CV) generates OID for you. Retailers will generate OID for any new jewellery you acquire; certified valuer's valuation certificate is needed for covering your existing jewellery, it's a CV who will generate OID for your old jewellery.
    All vital parameters which define jewellery along with minimum one image required for creation of OID for any jewellery.
    Kindly take care to ensure that description of your jewellery as captured by the retailer's invoice or CV's valuation certificate is in sync with the details captured via OID. In case of any discrepancy kindly contact the retailer or CV.
