By clicking the “I Agree” tick box you are accepting these terms and conditions of sale. The contract for the purchase of any “Digital Goods” will be between the “Customer” and “The Brand Cave” and will only be formed when “The Brand Cave” accept and confirm via email to the “Customer”, and we have received payment in full for the “Digital Goods”. Until we confirm to go ahead with the “Digital Goods” there is no contract between the “Customer” and “The Brand Cave” for the “Digital Goods”. “The Brand Cave” reserves the right, at our sole discretion to reject any order we receive, and refund you in full if we think your business and name is not the right fit for the “Digital Goods”.

- Font files or licences for the fonts shown. If the “Customer” would like the full font files they must purchase their own license to the proposed font separately.
- Cancellation and Refunds
Due to the personalised nature of our products, by completing the customisation form and contract sent from “The Brand Cave” the “Customer” is waiving their rights to a cooling-off period to ensure we can begin work on the customisation of the “Digital Goods”. If the “Customer” requests a refund after they have completed and returned the customisation form and contract, but have not yet received the “Final Deliverables” the “Customer” will only receive a refund to the amount of 50% of the original purchase price to cover for the time spent working on the design.
All sales of “Digital Goods” are final. Refunds for any “Digital Goods” sold by “The Brand Cave” will only be considered for a refund if any of the following conditions apply:-
- The “Customer” has not yet filled out the customisation form and contract sent out after payment, and therefore the “Digital Goods” have not yet been customised, and no time has been spent working on the design.
- The “Digital Goods” were incorrectly described on the “Store”
All refunds will only be issued to the transaction ID related to the sale of the “Digital Goods”.
- Price and Payment
When purchasing any “Digital Goods” from “The Brand Cave”, you understand that until we send you confirmation, we withhold the right to decline and refund your purchase.

Prices can be converted to your local currency during the payment procedure.
Payment must be made using a valid credit/debit card using PAYPAL.
Full payment, a completed customisation form and contract must be verified before design work is undertaken. When payment, completed customisation form and contract has been verified, the client will be sent a confirmation and acceptance e-mail, marking the beginning of the design process.
The price of any “Digital Goods” will be as quoted on the “Store” at the then current time, except in the case of obvious error. This price will include legally applicable VAT. The “Customer” agrees they may have to provide their country of residence during the order process for the purposes of calculating the correct amount of VAT to apply to the order. We will not accept any offers for “Digital Goods” other than at the then current price. Payment for all “Digital Goods” is processed securely by various third party payment gateway services and will be handled in the currency advertised on the “Store”.

The customisability depends on the brand package you have chosen and will be specified on the individual product page. Additional design edits and requests from the “Customer” that fall outside of what is specified on the product page, or what “The Brand Cave” believes is a reasonable request will be subject to additional fees. If this is the case, “The Brand Cave” will present the client with a proposal for the cost of extra design changes of which the client may choose to accept or refuse. All additional design work will be charged at our regular rate of £50.00 GBP per hour.
