It is fraudulent for any individual or company, association or group to direct, encourage or allow individuals to use a single VIP Account or Queen Studios Account (as defined later) for the purpose of accumulating Points or Rewards for combined use.
All Points and subsequent Rewards must be gained, earned and used in accordance with the rules and guidelines in these General Terms and Conditions. Queen Studios has the final authority to decide whether an activity qualifies for Points and/or Rewards.

A Member will need to provide the following information when signing up:
Name of the member (first and last name)
Valid email address
Date of birth
Country & region of residence
Each Member is solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their access credentials and other account information and will be solely liable for any and all activities under their account, except if caused by Queen Studios wilful misconduct or gross negligence. The Member shall be responsible for keeping all account information up to date. The Member agrees to notify Queen Studios Customer Service immediately of any unauthorised use of the Member’s account or any other breach of security.
Membership starts when a VIP Account is opened upon completion of the registration process. If the applicant is already a member of the Programme, a new application for opening another VIP Account is invalid, i.e. only one account may be opened and maintained per person.
The VIP Account is an account where Points earned by a Member under the Programme are accumulated and may be utilised for purchases and for purposes as expressly specified in the Terms and Conditions.
Queen Studios VIP Badge
Once the member has registered their VIP Account, a digital VIP Badge will be issued by email stating the VIP level you have reached. For VIP’s in the top levels, a physical badge may be issued. Queen Studios reserve the right to no longer issue or reissue physical badges.
Queen Studios ID
Members’ Queen Studios Account must use a genuine email address with a secure password. The email address is used for personal identification, e. g. when requesting Rewards and checking their online VIP Account and accessing their VIP Account redemption centre. A Queen Studios Account and, with that, a genuine email is required for participation in the Programme. The Member shall be responsible for avoiding misuse of their Queen Studios VIP Account by ensuring that no unauthorised third party has access. In cases of suspected misuse of the Queen Studios VIP Account, Queen Studios Customer Service must be notified immediately.
Queen Studios reserves the right to make special Rewards or promotional offers or activities available to groups of Members based on their Programme activity, including, but not limited to, Points status and history, country of residence, shopper history/product preferences and Rewards history. The terms and conditions for such special Rewards or promotional offers/activities, hereunder as an example, the nature, scope, duration and availability of such special Rewards or promotional offer/activities will follow with the offer/activity and may differ from time to time.
The Programme allows Members to accumulate and redeem loyalty rewards points (‘Points’) for use towards ‘Rewards’ (as defined below), on an individual basis and solely for their own account. The Programme may be structured to offer certain benefits based on the Member's current balance of ‘redeemable’ Points (that is, Points that have not previously been redeemed) or ‘Programme’ Points (that is, all prior non-expired Points accumulated by the Member, whether previously redeemed or not).
Queen Studios reserves the right to suspend, terminate, revalue or modify, without liability or notice to Members, all or part of this internal Points or Rewards value structure and offers as well as any merchandise or service. From time to time, Queen Studios may offer benefits or privileges to Members in exchange for redemption of a specified number of Member Points and/ or as a result of a specifically defined action undertaken by the Member (‘Rewards’). Rewards can include (but shall not be limited to): a discount when purchasing a Queen Studios product on queenstudios.shop, which would be available immediately or sent to the email address on file, voucher codes for discounts or merchandise redeemable on queenstudios.shop. There will at all times be a list of Rewards offered for redemption and the relevant terms and conditions available at the Member’s VIP redemption centre page. The nature of those Rewards, and the number of Points or the actions required to obtain such benefits or privileges, shall be established by Queen Studios at its sole discretion, may change at any time or from time to time, may be available for limited times, and are subject to change. There may be a limited number of particular Rewards available, and those Rewards will be delivered on a first-come, first-served basis. Queen Studios reserves the right to modify, amend or revise the Rewards available. Members may not rely on continued Reward availability. The number of Points required to redeem any Reward may be substantially increased, any Reward may be withdrawn, and restrictions on any Reward or its redemption may be imposed by Queen Studios or its designee or the third-party business partner supplying the Reward. Rewards are non-assignable and non-transferable and may not be bartered or sold. Any Rewards assigned, transferred, bartered or sold in violation of these Terms may be confiscated or cancelled. A pattern of redeeming Points for Rewards preceded or followed by changing the address for the applicable Programme account may be viewed as redemption fraud and could result in the termination of membership in the Programme. Queen Studios reserves the right to substitute Rewards of comparable or greater value if any redeemed Reward becomes unavailable for any reason. Rewards pictured in point-of-sale, online, television and print advertising, promotional packaging, and other Programme materials are for illustrative purposes only. The actual Reward may differ from the Reward pictured.
The basis of calculation for the Programme is Points that are credited to the Member’s VIP Account. The method for calculating the Points is the same globally, but the amount of Points that a Member may earn on the purchase of a particular product will differ from country to country as the price will be different. The Points and Awards allotment principles can be found on our VIP Rewards Page and will be updated from time to time.
Points can be used only for the purposes expressly specified in these Terms & Conditions or as specifically set out in the terms and conditions for a Reward or promotional offers or activities from time to time. Points have no cash value; Points may be accumulated to earn Members a discount on qualifying purchases or to use on Rewards available in the redemption centre for Queen Studios merchandise or other benefits listed on the benefits page.
Members can start earning Points after membership commences. Points may only be credited to the member’s individual VIP Account for purchases or activities the member personally made/activities the Member has personally undertaken, unless otherwise is specifically stated in these Terms and Conditions or in terms and conditions pertaining to specific offers or activities or promotions made by Queen Studios. The Points will be added to the VIP Account at the time of payment. Please note that when pre-ordering, points are at the same value as the payment method selected, if you pay only the deposit upfront, points will be added to the value of the deposit and not the value of the item. It may take up to 24 hours after payment before the earned Points appear in the VIP Account/are available in the redemption centre for use.
Points may be earned for a qualifying purchase of a Queen Studios product in on the Queen Studios Online store queenstudios.shop or from an authorised dealer or partner. Members may also earn Points in other ways as specifically communicated by Queen Studios in emails or online postings from time to time. Queen Studios may also, at its sole and absolute discretion, award ‘bonus’ Points for certain actions such as following official social media accounts, interacting and sharing Queen Studios content or attending online or offline events. Additional rules and restrictions may apply to such bonus point promotions.
Points are not valid unless earned in strict compliance with the requirements as established and as intended by Queen Studios, and the Member shall not attempt to earn Points by any means (including without limitation, by using any script, bot or other automated means) that only simulates compliance with the applicable requirements.
Queen Studios Group reserves the right to deduct or reduce the Points from the account of any Member who has acquired Points unduly.
Applicable postage/delivery charges are excluded for Point earnings. In certain countries (for example, the United States of America and Canada), taxes are separate from the purchase prices and are therefore excluded for earning of Points.
As further stated below under ‘Third-party sites and services’, Queen Studios is not responsible for Rewards delivered by a third party.
General provisions for redeeming Points
Points may be redeemed in our redemption centre for Rewards on the Queen Studios online store. Conversion and payment of Points into cash or gift cards is not possible.
It is not possible to redeem Points in the same transaction in which they are earned unless otherwise specifically stated in the terms and conditions of an offer or promotion made by Queen Studios Group.
Points may only be redeemed in the countries in which the Programme is available. You can find a list of those countries here as well as the Point value per participating country as updated from time to time by us. The Points value will be calculated using the Points value for that country. Please note that Queen Studios considers it a misuse of the Programme for a Member to seek to manipulate the Programme to the Member’s advantage by earning Points in one country and redeeming them, or shipping purchases made by redeeming them, to a different country. Occasional purchases such as this are permissible, but a pattern of such activity may result in termination of the Member’s VIP Account and deletion of their Points.
Extra Points cannot be purchased in this Programme.
If a product is returned for refund, any Points earned or redeemed for the purchase will be handled in accordance with the return policies of the Queen Studios Store. If Points have been used for a Reward such Reward cannot be returned and redeemed Points cannot be reinstated unless otherwise allowed under the terms and conditions for the Reward.
If Points are credited to the Members VIP Account by mistake, Queen Studios reserves the right to cancel or remove such Points with has been issued to the Members account by mistake. Queen Studios will not tolerate deliberate or knowing misuse of such error by the Member and such misuse may lead to immediate termination of the Member’s membership and with that loss of all earned Points as well as a ban from future membership of the Program.
Consequences of misuse
In the case of an improper use for which the Member is responsible, Queen Studios Group retains the right to terminate the membership or withdraw Points or Rewards, refuse to issue Points or a Reward or refuse to accept the redemption of Points or a Reward.
