Velveteen International Limited recognises that your privacy is very important to you. We value your privacy and want you to know how we treat the personal information you give to us or we collect from you.
The Personal Information We Collect From You
In order to provide you with certain products or services, we may ask for personal details such as your name, mailing address, billing address, telephone number and email address, and we will keep a record of this information. You do not generally have to provide any personal information to us unless you want to. However, if you choose not to provide certain types of personal information to us, we may not be able to provide you with the products or services you have requested, or you may not be able to use all of our website features and functionality.
We generally only collect personal information when it is provided voluntarily, by you. For example, we may collect your personal information when you register with us, subscribe to our website and/or newsletter, use our services, order our products, contact us online or by telephone, or send us correspondence.
How We Use Your Personal Information
The personal information that we collect via our website or through correspondence with you will be used and disclosed for the purposes for which you supplied it. For example, the contact details that you provide to us may be used to identify and fulfill any orders you place, ensuring that any products purchased via our website are delivered to the given address.
We use your personal information in a variety of ways including:
- to help with administration
- to improve the information, products and services we offer to you
- for business analysis and research
- to market products or services that we think may be beneficial to you.
In exceptional situations, we may also use and disclose your personal information for other reasons permitted under the Ordinance including complying with a request from the police or a regulatory or government authority or in the unlikely event that our business assets are ever sold to, or purchased by, another company (as our data records form part of our business).
We may also use and disclose personal information for purposes related or ancillary to the main reasons we collect it, such as invoicing and reminder notices as well as invitations to events. If at any time you do not wish to receive these kinds of communications please contact us and let us know.
We will never sell your personal information to anyone. We may, however, share your personal information with third parties that are carrying out work or performing services, on our behalf, in connection with our products and services (for example, payment processors and relevant postal or courier service companies).
Your personal information will only be held for as long as necessary. The personal information is then destroyed unless we must retain it to satisfy legal, regulatory or accounting requirements or to protect our interests.
How We Protect Your Personal Information
We work hard to protect your personal information from unauthorised access, loss, disclosure or modification. We store your personal information in different ways, including as hard copy documents and in electronic formats. Access to and use of your personal information is limited to those with a “need to know” in our organisation.
We also use technology and other security features and procedures in an effort to prevent unauthorised access and to protect the personal information we hold. Please be aware however that no data transmission over the internet can ever be entirely secure and may be prone to error. While we take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to protect your personal information, due to the nature of email and the internet, we cannot guarantee the security, privacy or confidentiality of the personal information that you transmit to us through our website, and therefore any transmission is at your own risk.
Your personal data may be transferred to a destination outside Hong Kong. If this is the case, we will ensure that all reasonable precautions are taken and all due diligence exercised to ensure that the personal data concerned is given equivalent protection to that provided by the Ordinance.

- please note that any measurements provided on products are as accurate as possible, however some discrepancies may occur as they are approximate measurements only
- the actual colours you see will depend on your computer monitor and browser and therefore we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any image is a completely accurate representation of the actual Item.
In relation to our handcrafted items, particularly accessories and block-printed fabrics, please be aware that there may be some subtle differences or variances in the Item you receive compared with the photograph of the same Item on our website. It is this that makes each of our Items unique and special.
All orders are subject to availability of the Item or Items selected. Please note that there may be a delay between the time you place an order and the time when we accept your order, which may result in a change to the stock position relating to particular Items. We will notify you as soon as possible if an Item you have ordered is out of stock.
All orders are subject to acceptance by us. When you place an order, your order constitutes an offer to buy an Item from us. After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this email does not mean that your order has been accepted, rather it is an acknowledgment that we have received your order. Acceptance of your order will take place when your order is dispatched. We will email you that your order has been dispatched (Order Confirmation). The contract between you and us will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation.
We reserve the right not to accept your order if certain events occur, for example, we are unable to obtain authorisation for payment, an Item is out of stock or withdrawn, there is a system malfunction, shipping restrictions apply to a particular Item or you do not meet the eligibility criteria set out in these Terms of Sale.
All Item prices are shown on our website in US Dollars, unless otherwise stated. International currency exchange rates may be updated from time to time at our discretion.

If, prior to dispatching an Item to you, we discover a mistake in the price of an Item you have ordered, we will contact you and give you the option of either reconfirming your order at the correct price or canceling your order. If we are unable to contact you or we receive no reply from you, we will cancel your order.
Prices of Items may change from time to time so please carefully check the pricing information provided on our website to confirm the current price of any Item. Any price changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an Order Confirmation.
