Use of the Website
We aim to ensure the information we place on the website is not misleading. However, we make no warranty or representation, whether express or implied, in relation to the accuracy of such information or any transaction on the website including (but not limited to) implied warranties of non-infringement, compatibility, security, accuracy, conditions of completeness, or any implied warranty arising from course of dealing or usage or trade.
We make no warranty:
the website will meet your requirements or will be uninterrupted, timely or error-free; or
that defects on the website will be corrected; or
the site, or the server that make it available, are free of viruses or bugs or represents the full functionality, accuracy or reliability of the website.
We will not be responsible or liable to you for any loss of content or material uploaded or transmitted through the website.
We reserve the right to change, withdraw or deny access to the website at any time and to remove any posting or information uploaded onto the website.
Compliance with Laws
By using this website, you agree to do so only for lawful reasons. You agree not to impersonate anyone and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations regarding transactions entered into on the website.
The steps required by you to enter into a contract with us are that you place your order for the products by clicking on the pay now button at the end of the checkout process once your product information, payment details and personal information have been submitted. You will be guided through the ordering process by our website and its instructions. Please take time to ensure that your order details are correct.
Once you have submitted an order, we will send you an acknowledgement email detailing the products you have ordered. This email acts simply as an acknowledgement that your order has been submitted and will be processed by us, not that the order is confirmed or accepted.
Please note all orders are subject to stock availability. We will inform you by email as soon as possible if the product you have ordered is not in stock. We will not take payment from you until the product is ready for dispatch. If you have already paid for the product and it is not in stock, we will refund you the amount you have paid.
Your order will be accepted and confirmed by us when the products have been dispatched. A further email will be sent to you when your ordered products have been dispatched. The contract between you and us will only be formed once you have received an email confirming dispatch of the order.
Non-acceptance of an order may arise from a number of reasons including (but not limited to):-
Not being able to take payment from you;
A pricing or product description error on our behalf;
You not meeting any eligibility criteria;
Unavailability of stock;
If we reasonably consider that you intend to re-sell the products on a commercial basis; or
Attempting to purchase more than four products of any type of product within a single order.
Please note we will not file a copy of the contract between us.
Pricing and Payment
The prices of the products will be as quoted on our site from time to time. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of products are correct at the time when the information was entered into the system.
We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures. If the products are incorrectly priced, then where the product’s correct price is less than the price stated on our site, we will charge the lower amount. However, please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
Where the product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you in writing as soon as possible to inform you of this error. We will give you the option of continuing to purchase the product at the correct price or cancelling the order. We will not process the order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you within seven (7) calendar days using the personal information you provided to us, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
We will not process the order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you within seven (7) calendar days using the personal information you provided to us, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
The price of the product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as quoted on our site.
You can only pay for your products by using a debit card, credit card or PayPal. The cards we accept are shown at the time of ordering.
Payment for the products and all delivery charges is in advance. However, we will not charge your debit or credit card until immediately before we dispatch the order.
Changing or Cancelling an Order
We’re sorry that we cannot make changes or cancel an order once you have placed it. If you are not happy with the item, please return it using the Returns Process.
If you need to return an item to Benedict & Hott please do so within seven (7) days following delivery of your goods. The return conditions detailed below must be met for a full refund. All returns are payable by the customer.
Whilst you are deciding whether to keep your purchases, you do have a legal duty to take reasonable care of the items.
All products must be returned in a re-saleable condition. This means the product and its packaging, labels and tags are undamaged and unused. We will not accept worn, damaged, altered or used goods. We reserve the right to reduce the amount of monies refunded (up to the value of the contract price) where the value of the goods are diminished from your handling of the goods which goes beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods. We shall evaluate the condition of the product by considering if your handling goes beyond that which might reasonably be allowed in a shop and the general wear of the product.
We will not accept the return of any made-to-measure or customer-made products.
If we have to contact you or give you notice in writing, we will do so by email or by post to the address you provide to us when ordering the products.
Your Rights under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013
Your statutory rights are not affected.
Any refund made will be made on the credit card or debit card used at the time of ordering the products or by PayPal. Refunds will usually be processed within five (5) working days of products being received back.
If the product is faulty or not as described, your legal rights are not affected by the above returns policy. Please say if you consider the products are faulty or not as described. See below for faulty products.
Unfortunately, we’re unable to offer exchanges due to the short production run of garments we stock. Please return the item for a full refund and place a new order.
We will aim to deliver your order by the estimated delivery date set out on the website unless there is an Event Outside Our Control (please see below). If we’re unable to meet the estimated delivery date, then we will inform you of a revised estimated delivery date. You will have the right to cancel your order and to be refunded if you are not happy with the revised estimated delivery date.
Delivery will be completed when we attempt to deliver the products to you or a person identified by you to the address you gave to us or other address or location which is agreed between you and our courier.
The products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery being attempted.
You will own the products when we have received payment in full for the products, including any delivery charges.
We deliver directly to the delivery address stated on the information submitted in your order and do not deliver to any stores for collection. We may agree to deliver to another address or location which is agreed between you and our courier.

Where the product is faulty, you will also have the benefit of the Benedict & Hott Warranty (see below) and this further additional period.

If an Event Outside Our Control takes place and affects the performance of our obligations under the contract between you and us, then we will contact you as soon as we are able, our obligations will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of such event. Where the event delays your delivery, we will arrange a new delivery date with you when the delaying event has passed.
