Product availability
We endeavour to ensure that stock is available at the time of purchase. We offer our products in good faith but from time to time items may be sold out before stock is updated.

Hive sources unique products from around the world that are handmade by artisans and small family run businesses. We are unable to guarantee that product features such as shape, colour, pattern, weave and size will always be identical from item to item. They may have features which are an inherent part of their provenance and are not faults. We make every effort to accurately display the colours and features online but they may vary.

Gift cards
Gift cards are treated as cash and cannot be replaced if lost or stolen. They may only be used for purchases in store and cannot be returned or exchanged for cash. They cannot be redeemed online. No change is given and any balance that remains on the card can be used in whole or part against future purchases at Hive.

Privacy
We respect your privacy and will maintain the privacy of your information. We will not provide any personal details about you to third parties outside of the running of our business and the verified programs and apps we use unless required to do so by law.
