Our site is built on Squarespace which is completely secure, PCI compliant and SSL enabled.
For payments Squarespace uses Stripe which has been audited by a PCI-certifed auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. The most stringent level of certification available.
All our card numbers are encrypted on disk with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe's internal servers and daemons are able to obtain plaintext card numbers; instead, they can just request that cards be sent to a service provider on a static whitelist. Stripe's infrastructure for storing, decrypting and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure and doesn't share any credentials with Stripe's primary service (API, website, Etc).
Our priority at all times is to give you an easy and enjoyable shopping experience while protecting your privacy and the integrity of your personal information.
If you wish to make a purchase or sign up for our weekly newsletter, you will obviously be required to pass over such information as will enable us to fulfil your request.
We keep a record of this information in our database so we may recognise you as a customer. We also keep a record of your purchases and we often save email correspondence so we may track questions or concerns you may have with our products or service. It is always password-protected and stored on a secure server.
Our data collection and storage is governed by the rules of the UK Data Protection Act.
Terms & Conditions
The following terms and conditions govern the use of this website and outline the legal responsibilities and obligations that shall exist between you and The Narratorium (also referred hereafter as ‘we', ‘us', ‘our', ‘The Narratorium'). By placing an order on this website, you are deemed to have read and agreed these terms and conditions. If you have any questions, please contact us via email or telephone.
Placing an Order
When placing an order, you undertake that any and all information given is accurate and complete.
To amend an order or delivery address, please contact us immediately. We will do our best to make amendments prior to despatch, but we cannot guarantee changes can be made once an order is processed.
All orders are subject to acceptance and product availability.
Once you have placed an order we will send you an email confirming that your order has been received, but this is not a confirmation that your offer to purchase the goods has been accepted. A contract between you and The Narratorium for the sale of our products will only exist once an order has been despatched to you. A separate email will be sent to you confirming the despatch of the item(s).
If you place an order for an item that has become unavailable, your credit/debit card will still be charged for the full value of the goods when the order is placed. This will also be the case if you choose to make payment with PayPal, you will be charged for the full value of the goods when your order is placed.
If for any reason we are unable to fulfil any part of the order, we will notify you as soon as is practical and refund your card within 7 days of so doing. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Prices and availability of goods are subject to change without notice. The advertised delivery charge will be added to your order value unless otherwise stated.
Special Offers & Promotions
Unless otherwise stated, special offers cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion nor are they valid for the purchase of gift vouchers.
FREE DELIVERY AND RETURNS: Unless otherwise stated, all free delivery and free returns promotions are limited to UK addresses. Free delivery applies to UK standard delivery only.
Stock permitting, all orders are usually despatched within two working days of the order being accepted.
In the event that an item is temporarily out of stock, we will notify you of the delay and despatch it as soon as it arrives.
The delivery period stated within which you will receive your order is indicative and, unless otherwise stated, not guaranteed. Goods will be sent to the address given by you in your order.
If your delivery address is outside of the UK, you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. You must meet any additional charges for customs clearance. Please note, customs policies vary widely from country to country. We recommend you contact your local customs office for further information. Please note international shipments may be subject to cross-border inspections by customs authorities.
You may ordinarily return any products within 21 days of receipt for refund or exchange as long as those products are unworn (except for the purposes of trying on).
We strongly recommend that you obtain proof of postage as we do not accept any responsibility for returned items that fail to reach us.
Your Right to Cancel
You may normally cancel this contract in writing within seven days of receiving the order. If you do cancel the contract within this time, any payments made by you will be refunded in full within 30 days.
If the products have already been despatched, you will be required to return the items as per our returns policy.
Payment & Taxes
We accept online payment in a secure environment by credit card or debit card. We currently accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express.
All prices are quoted in pounds sterling and, if you are ordering from inside the EU, are inclusive of VAT.
