We love fabric!

Unique Image is a sewing shop in Ulverston, on the edge of the Lake District in the UK.
We have been established here for over ten years, providing a selection of high quality dressmaking fabrics and haberdashery, as well as teaching dressmaking skills and altering and creating garments for customers.
As part of our desire to provide high quality fabrics, we stock a good range of Liberty Art Fabrics, including the whole range of Plain-Dyed Tana Lawn. We also love washed linen, boiled wool, high quality lace, hand painted silk, and designer cottons such as Kaffe Fassett and Tula Pink.
We like to make an effort to source something new and different, we stock Merchant and Mills patterns and haberdashery for instance, although we sadly cannot sell them here on Etsy (they are available from our website). And just recently we have added some gorgeous Nani Iro fabrics and African wax prints to our range.
We're always trying to keep things fresh. We think our tagline should be 'I'll be Back!' because that is what most customers say as they are leaving the shop..

Returns and exchange details
We cannot refund fabric once it has been cut for you, unless there is a demonstrable issue with the quality of the fabric, in which case please contact us as soon as you can so that the issue may be resolved.
Orders may only be cancelled if the fabric has not yet been cut.
We always try to process orders within 1-2 working days, however we cannot guarantee how long it will take to get to you once it has been posted.

We have now decided to change our postage methods and will be using Royal Mail tracked and signed for services for all international orders that are over £20 in value. This has resulted in an increase of postage charges, especially for international deliveries, but we feel it is best for ourselves and our customers.
For parcels in the UK we generally use the Royal Mail 1st Class service.

We cannot discount VAT for customers outside the UK, but we can provide you with a VAT invoice upon request so that you can claim it back in your own country.

Information We Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide us with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to us), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering.

Why We Need Your Information and How We Use It

We rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

* As needed to provide our services, such as when we use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

* When you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for our mailing list;

* If necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law;

* As necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as
1) providing and improving our services. We use your information to provide the services you requested and in our legitimate interest to improve our services;
2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. We use your information as necessary to comply with our obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about our customers is important to our business. We share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

* Etsy. We share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you our services and comply with our obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

* Service providers. We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to our shop, such as delivery companies. We will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

* Business transfers. If we sell or merge our business, we may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

We may collect, use, retain, and share your information if we have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce our 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 our customers, or others.

We generally keep your data for the following time period: 7 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

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

Your Rights

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. These rights are:

* Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you by contacting us using the contact information below.

* Object. You can object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

* Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about our 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.
