Terms and Conditions
1. Terms of Service
The following terms and conditions shall govern the sale by bennettwinch.com and the buyer. By placing orders with bennettwinch.com, it is deemed that you have read, understood and agreed to our Terms & Conditions. If you find any subject in the Terms & Conditions not acceptable, please do not enter this website or contact Bennett Winch before placing your order.
All prices are retail prices and are stated in GBP. Prices unless stated do not include: taxes, duties, import fees charged by your local government, service, payment or delivery charges depending on country. We retain the right to adjust the prices at any items that are incorrectly priced without prior notice. As customs policies vary by country, we cannot anticipate what these charges will be and therefore Bennett Winch will not be responsible for any taxes, duties, import fees or custom fees levied once the purchased Bennett Winch products reach your country.
We accept most major credit cards, debit cards or PayPal.
Bennett Winch encrypts all your card information via Shopify Payment using the so-called SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol. This means that no unauthorised persons will be able to view your card number or other information during the transaction. In order to keep a high level of security for our customers, we may request further correspondence from the purchaser in the event that we suspect a fraudulent order.
All orders are shipped with DHL or DPD (Small leathers only). When your order leaves our warehouse you will receive a tracking number via e-mail in order for you to track your order. All delivery times are estimated and listed on the delivery tab of the product page.
5. Delivery Time & Charges
Timely delivery is based on the condition that the courier (DHL/DPD) keeps day-to-day delivery schedules. Although rare, Bennett Winch will not be held responsible for delays with the couriers. All delivery estimates are based upon working/business days. With regards to import taxes / duties please go to checkout and if there are any applicable the detail will be there. In those cases we offer the customer the choice of pre-paying or sending unpaid. If they are sent unpaid the customer is responsible for all charges when the product lands.
All products found on bennettwinch.com are currently in stock unless the product is marked 'Out of Stock'. If you are interested in ordering an ‘Out of Stock' item please click the button and enter your email and you’ll be automatically informed when the line is back in stock. We reserve the right to cancel a delivery and/or order in the event that the stock quantity and/or price was incorrect at the moment of placing the order. If we are unable to deliver in accordance with the Terms & Conditions of order, we will contact you and give you the opportunity to cancel the order.
7. Colour of Products & Materials
The colours of products seen on bennettwinch.com will depend on the monitor from which they are viewed and can vary depending on the monitor. Therefore the colour seen on the monitor can vary from the accurate colour of the product. Please note that we have tried as accurately as possible to display the colours of the textile, lining, leather etc. as well as the tactility of all materials used. Please note that all Bennett Winch products are made of natural leather and textiles of the highest quality. We would like to point out that vegetable tanned leather is a natural product and therefore can vary in colour and structure slightly from product to product and from collection to collection. These minor variations in products should be viewed as a unique characteristic and not as a fault. Please be aware that natural and coated fabrics used in dark or very strong colours may be subject to transference of colour through rubbing, and the use of these products should be used with caution when in contact with light colours. All textiles have been given a water repellent treatment in the form of Teflon, but are not fully water-resistant and this coating gets less effective with age. Note that all leathers are sensitive to rain and other wet spots so heavy rainfall should be avoided.
8. Cabin Baggage Allowances
It is essential that you check the baggage allowances permitted by your carrier, as these may vary from time to time and between carriers. The fact that a piece of luggage complies with IATA cabin baggage guidelines does not guarantee that it will be accepted by every carrier as a carry-on bag. It also depends on how much you pack into the bag so do not over-pack to avoid issues.
All sizes on any product viewed on bennettwich.com are external sizes measured in cm.
10. Force Majeure
We have the right to assert force majeure in the event of strike, lockout, blockade, war, warlike event, civil war, revolution, government sanction, strike, blockade, natural disaster or the like. This means that the agreement will not need to be fulfilled in part or in full. Should this, contrary to expectation, occur, we would attempt to notify you.
