5. Marketing

We are subject to certain rules and privacy laws when marketing to our customers. For example, a Data Subject’s prior consent is required for electronic direct marketing (for example, by email, text or automated calls). The limited exception for existing customers known as “soft opt in” allows organisations to send marketing texts or emails if they have obtained contact details in the course of a sale to that person, they are marketing similar products or services, and they gave the person an opportunity to opt out of marketing when first collecting the details and in every subsequent message.

The right to object to direct marketing must be explicitly offered to the Data Subject in an intelligible manner so that it is clearly distinguishable from other information.

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 subject to business days 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 21 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.
