By accessing this website as well as placing an order, you agree to and accept these terms and conditions.

Any unauthorised reproductions of Amanda Veal Portrait products and designs is in violation of copyright law. Purchase of Amanda Veal Portrait products does not transfer reproduction rights.

5. Description of products

The description of products in the Website is only approximate. Amanda may correct any error appearing in the Website or withdraw any product from sale without incurring liability. Price and availability is also subject to change without notice.

6. Payment and deposit

Once Amanda has agreed to proceed with a commission, a 33% non refundable deposit is required to secure your place on Amanda’s client list. You can then pay the remaining amount.

Amanda accepts several payment methods including:

Paypal (payment is immediate so ideal if you need your order shipped quicky)

BACS (Bankers’ Automated Clearing Services) (payment should be cleared within a few hours)

Cheque– (payments take 4-5 working days to clear so do use this method of payment if your order needs to be shipped quickly).

Products will not be posted or delivered until the customer’s funds that have been paid to Amanda Veal have cleared in full.

7. Payment security

Paypal: They use industry-leading technology (such as SSL) to keep your information safe. They automatically encrypt your confidential information in transit from your computer to theirs using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Once your information reaches the PayPal site, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the Internet, so your private information is available only to authorised computers.

BACS: If you choose this method of payment it is your duty to ensure the safe transfer of monies from your account into ours. We recommend doing this through your own online banking or go to your bank branch and ask a member of staff to transfer funds – it should be done free of charge by your bank.

Cheques: All cheques we receive are paid into Barclays Bank online.

8. Gift certificates
