Braiswick Photographic Co Ltd respects the privacy of individuals who visit the Braiswick site and is committed to protecting their personal information. As required by the UK Data Protection Act of 1998, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information, which you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access. The Company's policy on the collection and use of personal information is outlined below.

1. Personal Information

  1. Administer your Order and deliver the prints you have requested direct to your address or school.

In order to do the above, we need to collect and process personal information about you, including your name, address, telephone number and/or e-mail address. We will ask you for this information on our web site.

1.1 Third Party: In order to take advantage of some of our services, you may need to supply us with the personal details of a third party, for example, their name and address if you wish us to send them prints. We will not use this information for anything other than providing the service for which the information was supplied.

1.2 Legal Responsibility: We will not disclose any personally identifiable information without your permission unless we are legally required to do so for example, pursuant to a court order or for the purposes of prevention of crime or fraud.

This information will only be used to assist us in providing an effective service on this web site. We may, from time to time, supply the owners and operators of third party web sites which have a link to our site with information about the number of users linking to our site from their web site.

Please click on the link to “Order School Photos”. Enter the barcode and passcode of the photograph which you will find printed on your proof card. Please note passcodes are case sensitive. Then click on “Find Image”.

Photographs are held on record for approximately one year after the day of take.

Your order can still be placed online after this date.

For an individual photograph: Please contact your school and ask them to provide you with the unique reference number underneath the thumbnail image of your child on the disc left with them on the day of take. Please then contact us by e-mail at customerservice@braiswick.co.uk with this number and we will be able to produce a duplicate proof card to be sent to the school to be forwarded on to you. Due to child safeguarding issues, we are unable to send proof cards to home addresses or give out barcodes and passcodes via e-mail or telephone.

For a group / class photograph: Please contact us by e-mail at customerservice@braiswick.co.uk with the full name and address of the school, together with your child’s name and class, and we will produce a duplicate proof card to be sent to the school to be passed on to you. Due to child safeguarding issues, we are unable to send proof cards to home addresses or give out barcodes and passcodes via e-mail or telephone.

For child safeguarding reasons, we are unable to take telephone orders. Please place your order online using the barcode and passcode printed on your proof card.

Due to copyright and business reasons, we do not offer this option.

Each proof card has a unique reference number specific to that particular photograph and due to our automated printing process it is not possible to mix and match proof cards to make a bespoke order. All of the packs available for each barcode are printed on the proof card and we are unable to print photographs outside of this criteria. Should you wish to purchase a bespoke pack, or a different size photograph, please consider the CD/E-mail option, for individual photographs only.

Yes, providing all proof cards are from the same school/day of take.

Due to our automated printing process this is not possible. Each CD has the purchased copyright image printed on the front and therefore we produce a separate CD for each order placed.

It is not possible to edit an order once placed. Providing the order has not been printed we can cancel you order to enable you to place a new one. Please telephone us on 01206 399800 with your order number and we will process a refund.

Please telephone us on 01206 399800 with your order number and providing the order has not been printed we will cancel the order and process a refund.

E-mail image: A link to download your photograph will be received within 2 working days of placing your order to the e-mail address supplied when setting up your customer account.

Internet orders: Orders placed before the return to school by date printed on the proof card are held on our system until all of the orders returned via the school are collected. All orders are then printed, packed and returned to the school by courier as a main school order. All school orders are dispatched within 14 days of the return to school by date. Please check with your school before contacting us.

Orders placed after the return to school by date are printed the day after the order is placed and sent directly to home addresses. Please allow 15 working days for these orders to be received. If you have not received your photographs after this time please check with your local sorting office before contacting us to see whether they are holding your order if they have been unable to deliver it.

Please return your photographs to us at Braiswick Photographic Co. Ltd, Wesley House, Cattawade, Manningtree, Essex CO11 1RJ together with a covering letter explaining the reason for the return, including your address and daytime telephone number. We will re-print your order and return it to your home address within 14 working days of receipt.

All orders placed before the return to school by date are processed and packed together and sent by courier to the school, absorbing the cost of postage and packing. All orders placed after this date are processed and packed individually and sent by Royal Mail to home addresses thus incurring the additional £4 fee.
