Who has never lost a beloved or utterly important object: car key, baby's comforter, mobile phone, …?
We can not prevent you from losing one again but we can increase your chances of recovering it. For doing so, we will provide you with a unique short internet address which you can put on your important belongings.
Someone recovering one of your lost item will be able to get in contact with you via the short web URL found on the object.
You may then choose how to organize the recovery, either by mail, by a direct encounter or by any other mean.
Mainly for two reasons:
First, because the great majority of people is eager to help, and to get back the found objects to their owner.
Second, because it is easy for people to get in touch with the owner, once they have spotted the web URL on the found object.
For short: €5.00 a year. See the FAQ for more details.
With a permanent marker. This is by far the easiest way for things like clothings, bags, comforters… It however has the disadvantage of not looking so great on valuable items.
With stickers. An intermediate solution between permanent marker and engraving. But you need to make or buy some stickers. See the FAQ about the buying of stickers.
With textile labels. Certainly the best choice for clothings, as you may sew or stick labels on all of them. See the FAQ about the reuse of the same ID for several objects.
By engraving. This is the more permanent way to mark your valuable belongings. You can go to the nearest key cutter and shoe repair shop to ask for engraving your object.
The person who has found the object will recognize the ID as being an URL, and by typing it in an internet browser will be able to contact you and to organize the giving back of your belonging.
You shall type the full internet address (URL) which is normally written on the found object, in your browser address bar. If it doesn't work, you may type the object ID (last part of the URL after the '/') in the form bellow.
