FAQ

April 2022 update - We are accepting orders!

Our suppliers are still being affected by delayed deliveries due to the Covid pandemic and the war in Ukraine.

We are trying to minimise this disruption wherever we can, when placing your order please give us as much time as you can. Stay safe.

 
How long will my order take?

Every item is personalised to your requirements. Creating unique gifts takes time so we aim to dispatch orders within 5-7 working days of order receipt. 

If there is a particular date your order is required by please email us, and we will do our best to to get your item(s) to you in time.

Can the gift be sent directly to the recipient?

If you'd like to send your gift directly to the recipient you can add their address as the delivery address.

Orders maybe be sent with a delivery note, which you’ll find inside your parcel, however, it’s not a gift message.

There aren’t any prices on the delivery note.

Delivery options

We use Royal Mail Tracked service - £5.99 per order.

For orders £14.99 and under - £3.99 please select the small order delivery option at the checkout.

Royal Mail Tracked service aims to deliver your parcel in 1-2 working days of dispatch and gives the added benefit of proof of delivery.

Please contact us if you would like to use a different delivery method. Any different delivery methods may incur an additional delivery charge. 

Do you provide International delivery?

We can send most of our items to addresses outside of the UK so please contact us and discuss delivery options with you in more detail.

There is an additional postage charge when we deliver to an address outside of the UK, so please contact us with details of the gift you’d like and the delivery destination and we’ll let you know how much the postage will be.

How do I return an item?

You have 28 calendar days to return an item from the date you received it.

Personalised items are non-returnable unless faulty.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it and be in the original packaging. Your item needs to have the receipt or proof of purchase. We understand that you may need to try the item on but please be careful not to leave any marks (e.g. make-up, deodorant) as we may not be able to accept it back if we believe it has been worn. For hygiene reasons, we can not accept underwear back for return/refund.

8. Your rights

In this Section 7, we have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law.

The right to access your data:
You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your data and, where we do, access the personal data, together with certain additional information. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you with a copy of your data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a fee of £10 each to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.

 

The right to rectification:
You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

The right to erasure:
In some circumstances, you have the right to erasure of your data without undue delay. However, there are certain general exclusions of the right to erasure. Those general exclusions include where processing is necessary: for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims.

The right to restrict processing:
In some circumstances, you have the right to restrict the processing of your data. Those are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for our processing but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store your data. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or reasons of important public interest.

The right to object to processing:
You have the right to object to our processing of your data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims.

The right to data portability:
To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your data is consent, and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your data from us in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

The right to complain to a supervisory authority:
If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to complain to a supervisory authority. In the UK it is the Information Commissioners Office – https://ico.org.uk/ who is responsible for data protection enforcement.
You may exercise any of your rights about your data by written notice to us – either by our mailing address or emailing brownkatscreations@gmail.com
