Deliveries are carried out by our shipping partners (Mon to Sat) exclusively to delivery addresses within the UK (excluding the Scilly Isles & Channel Islands) and the Isle of Man. . Deichmann endeavours to dispatch orders on the next working day. All orders are despatched within two working days from the end of the day the order is placed. We are unable to commit to when an order will be delivered due to the number of external factors which can affect this.
Free Delivery on orders over £35
Standard Delivery - £1.99
Express Delivery - £3.95
Payments can be made by credit/ debit card (Visa, MasterCard,), or PayPal. All prices are stated in GB Pounds, including the statutory VAT of currently 20%. The prices valid at the time of placing the order shall apply. All products supplied remain the property of Deichmann until they have been paid in full.
In the event that the goods received are damaged or defective Deichmann will at our own option replace, repair or refund the amount originally paid for them. This can be done at any of our Deichmann stores (simply use our Location Finder) or by returning the goods via the Royal Mail or Collect Plus.
Deichmann offers customers the facility to exchange goods or obtain a refund, which is in addition to your legal rights. The only conditions are that the goods are in a new and unworn condition, in their original packaging, that the customer provides a proof of purchase and they are returned to us either in store or to the returns address within 28 days of receipt.
Under Distance Selling Regulations, you may cancel your contract with us within 8 days without having to specify any reasons. This can be done either in writing (e.g. email (to firstname.lastname@example.org) or letter) or by returning the goods. The period begins on the later of the date of receipt of these cancellation rights or the date the customer received the goods (in case of recurring deliveries of the same type of goods the date of receiving the first partial delivery). Goods can either be returned at any of our Deichmann stores (simply use our Location Finder) or via Royal Mail or Collect Plus.
Consequences of cancellation
In the event of an effective cancellation, any contributions received by either party must be returned and, where applicable, any benefits received (e.g. interest) are to be surrendered. If you are not able to return all or part of the goods or only in deteriorated condition, you are obliged to reimburse us with the respective value. This shall not apply in the event that the deterioration of the surrendered goods is due to the inspection of the goods as it would have been possible in a shop. However, you may avoid any duty to provide compensation for any deterioration of the goods caused by the intended use, by not using the goods as your own property and refraining from all actions that may affect their value. Obligations to refund payments must be met within 30 days of the customer notifying us of their wish to cancel.

When you download the app, we register your IP address and information about how to use the app. If you log in to your Deichmann account, we can show you (again by means of cookies) the most relevant and personal products, offers and settings. .
- E-mails and newsletters
When you place an order with us you will receive various e-mails such as the order and shipping confirmation and a review request.
You can also sign up for our newsletter (via a double opt- in) . We try to make these newsletters as relevant as possible for you. That is why we ask for your interests (if you have no interest in men's shoes, we will not send you our men's newsletters, for example) and your shoe size (if you have a larger ladies or gentlemen's size, we will send special newsletters when new collection arrives). You can enter or change these interests in 'my account' at Deichmann.com.
We also use your buying behaviour to personalise the content of the newsletters. We create relevant newsletters dependent upon your behaviour after receiving news to make new selections: personal newsletter tracking. For example, we sometimes send newsletters to a group that has opened a specific newsletter (open behaviour) or that have clicked on specific shoes (click behaviour). We do not view this data on an individual level.
In every newsletter you have the option to unsubscribe and deactivate the personal newsletter tracking.
Data concerned: salutation, first and last name, e-mail address, date of birth, shoe size, interests, order history, open and click behaviour.
We regularly have (win) promotions . Often for shoes or Deichmann gift cards, but also sometimes for tickets for events, other prizes or money. To be able to participate, we ask for your name, gender, e-mail address and optional date of birth, shoe size, interests and Post code. We also use this data to analyze the action. In order to receive your prize, we need your telephone number and address details and sometimes your account number. With every (online) promotion you will find the applicable promotion conditions.
Deichmann uses social media to keep you up to date on the latest trends and products, to give you a look behind the scenes and to share offers. You can follow us on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube. The conditions of the social media platform, not those of Deichmann, apply to the use of this social media .
When you ask us a question via social media, we will save that message and your account name so that we can respond to your message. We also use the advertising possibilities of social media platforms. We show your ads on the basis of the data that the social media platform collects with your permission, eg that you follow us, what you are interested in or in which place you live. These data are not managed by Deichmann but are managed by the relevant social media platform; in your account there you can also adjust the settings.
Reviews and customer satisfaction survey
We love shoes and satisfied customers. That is why we regularly examine what you think of our products and service, so that we can continue to improve them.
We do this by sending a request for a review of the product you have purchased by e-mail. For this we make a connection between your e-mail address and your order details, so that we can be sure that you are the person who placed the order.
In the shops we share tickets for our customer satisfaction survey that can be filled in online. The data we store for this are: first and last name, e-mail address, gender and which store you judge.
Contact with customer service
If you have questions about products, stocks, your orders, payments or when you have a complaint, for example, our customer service is ready for you. You can mail and call, but also reach them via Facebook and Instagram. We can ask you for your name, order number / history, e-mail address, telephone number and address details. Under your customer ID we store your question or complaint, so that we can help you as quickly and as well as possible if you contact us again.
You can always contact your question or complaint in one of our stores. They record your data digitally or on p apier. In the latter case , they then follow express instructions not to let your personal data swing and store them under lock and key, with access only for authorized persons. They are well trained!
Deichmann stores are equipped with cameras for the sake of your safety and that of our employees and products. These camera images are deleted after 4 weeks, unless there are good reasons to keep the images longer, for example for a police investigation.

And there are official model contracts specially designed to guarantee your privacy.
