Terms and Conditions
If there’s anything anything ANYTHING wrong with your order upon arrival (mail carriers can be really careless- I’ve seen it, I understand), please message me STRAIGHT AWAY! Just drop me a message/email and I will most definitely get back with you right away to help! I’ll take care of any problems that may occur!

Likewise, if any items are taking unusually long to arrive (please give about a week within the UK to allow for some delays), let me know and I can check for any tracking statuses

i use a print partner for all of my website products (minus original artwork), meaning that goods are made to order. This saves on warehouse storage space and helps to reduce my carbon footprint. we are unable to offer returns or refunds on print on demand products unless there is a fault with your order.

commissioned work can take up to 24 weeks to complete. please ensure that you have provided all information (reference photos) for me to complete your order in this time frame. open commissions will expire after 2 years; your order will not be refunded and your portrait slot will be invalidated. Your right to return or cancel products does not apply to commissioned goods. This doesn’t affect your statutory rights if goods are faulty or not as described.

model photo submissions – by submitting a photo of your dog on any model calls, including social media, in person and via email, you confirm that you are the owner of the dog submitted. Any photos submitted also mean you are the owner or have permission for the photo to be used as reference in any artistic works from amber marie studio. photos submitted can be used for reference by amber marie for up to 2 years; if your photo is not used within this time frame, amber marie studio will have to gain your permission again. any drawings created of your dog will be added to amber marie studio’s portfolio and publicly available on different products to purchase. submitting photos does not guarantee an opportunity for your dog to be drawn, and you are not obligated to purchase the original artwork.

Returns policy
Please let me know as soon as you can if you are unsatisfied or the product arrives faulty – I personally make sure anything that touches my hands is perfect, so I need to know what has happened to be able to not just fix it for you, but fix it for everyone else who orders subsequently! ! And if your furry friend accidentally mistakes your package as a chew toy through the letterbox…. send me a photo of any untimely demise, and I will replace it/fix it straight away!

However, after you have received it, please ensure you’ve contacted me within a seven day period of any issues. After this time, I will not be able to guarantee any ability to fix any problems, refund or accept returns.

It is contrary to the Act to copy, publish, reproduce or store images electronically, unless the express permission of Amber Marie – Biro Portraits has been purchased.

Privacy Policy

THIS PRIVACY POLICY DESCRIBES HOW AND WHEN I COLLECT, USE, AND SHARE INFORMATION WHEN YOU PURCHASE AN ITEM FROM ME, CONTACT ME, OR OTHERWISE USE MY SERVICES THROUGH SQUARESPACE, MAILCHIMP, ETSY, PAYPAL, STRIPE OR THEIR RELATED SITES AND SERVICES.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy, Squarespace, MailChimp, Dropbox, Stripe or PayPal. You can reference the relevant website’s Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised either Etsy, PayPal or Squarespace to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. This may also include private photos of your pets for me to draw for a custom portrait.

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services. For example, to chase up Royal Mail, or to arrange a refund with Stripe or PayPal. I do not retain your payment details myself, but via PayPal or Stripe, which have their own privacy policies.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law. However, it is highly unlikely that Amber Marie will ever be transfered to another owner.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time periods: 7 years.

Once your portrait is scanned, I save the scan under your name. This means I can find your individual scan quickly for reference. These scans are kept on secure external harddrive, which is disconnected from my computer whenever it is not in use.

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction.

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons. This also means you can “unsubscribe” from my mailing list at any time by clicking the button at the bottom of any email received.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

FOR PURPOSES OF EU DATA PROTECTION LAW, I, AMBER MARIE, AM THE DATA CONTROLLER OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS, YOU MAY CONTACT ME AT woof@ambermariestudio.com. ALTERNATELY, YOU MAY MAIL ME AT:
AMBER MARIE, 4 avon court, river way, andover, hampshire, SP10 4DY, UK
