Hot Dog & Co. asks all customers to read the following carefully before making a purchase. Once you have engaged with our service, you will be bound by the entire contents of our Terms and Conditions, at all times.
Any reference to ‘us’, ‘our’ or ‘we’ refers, without exception, to Hot Dog & Co. Any reference to ‘you’ or ‘your’ refers to our customers.

We also reserve the right to refuse service to any person, at any time, for whatever reason we deem fit.
ORDERS AND PAYMENT
Orders can be made directly through our website. Once you have selected your items in our online store, you can complete the checkout process. At this time, you will be asked to enter your delivery destination, however as we offer free shipping on all products within Australia you will not be charged any additional shipping fee. Should Hot Dog & Co. make shipping available to those outside of Australia, your address will be used to determine any shipping costs which will then be added to your order upon checkout.
You will also need to input several personal details, in order to be eligible to checkout. Inability to provide us with one or more of these details may affect your checkout success. Please ensure all details are correct and accurate to the best of your knowledge and do not hesitate to contact us if you feel you have made an error.
If you have a discount or promotional code, please enter it before moving on to payment. More information on this can be found in the “Promotion” section of our Terms and Conditions.
You will receive an e-mail from us to confirm that your order has been received and payment cleared. We will then begin processing your order and it won’t be long until your items are in your hands. If you wish to receive a tracking order for your shipment, please let us know.
If you do need to cancel or change your order, please contact us as soon as possible, however we reserve the right to refuse cancellations, at our sole discretion.
We are unable to accept cancellations of any order that includes customisation if the customisation of said product has already commenced.
All domestic Australian orders are inclusive of shipping, meaning that no additional shipping charge will apply. Hot Dog & Co. uses either Australia Post or private courier, which are both available with tracking. Your tracking number can be provided to you upon request. All orders require a signature on delivery.
Please note that if you are ordering one of our Serving/Chopping Boards you will be required to provide a street address as due to the size/weight this parcel will arrive by courier. Any small items will be sent via Registered Post, therefore also requiring a signature upon delivery, but these items can be sent to a PO Box.
Dispatch time can vary due to volume of orders, but general turnaround time is approximately three days. We ask that customers allow up to 10 business days for your order to reach you once shipped. This may vary if you are in a regional domestic area or if you are an international customer. Sorry, Hot Dog & Co. accepts no liability for lost/missing parcels once sent to international customers if postage with tracking is not selected when checking out. This does not apply to Australian orders as all domestic parcels are sent with tracking.
For international orders, please contact us prior to ordering if you’d like your parcel to be trackable. Extra charges apply. Hot Dog & Co. will NOT be responsible for any orders where tracking has not been added.
If an incorrect address is provided at time of order and a parcel is returned to Hot Dog & Co. you will be required to pay for this package to be re-sent. Please ensure that you provide correct postal information at time of order.
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS PLEASE NOTE - Shipping from Australia can take approximately 2-4 weeks from send date.
INTERNATIONAL DUTIES AND TAXES
Hot Dog & Co. will not be responsible for the payment of any customs levies, duties or taxes that may be associated with international delivery in your local country. Customers will be solely responsible for any such fees, therefore we ask that you please make yourself aware of them before confirming your order.
For any products which have been customised to order, we are unfortunately unable to accept any returns or exchanges in the event that you change your mind. We are always more than happy to assist you in making the correct choice for your home, in the hopes of avoiding any incorrect selections.
If your product arrives faulty or damaged, please contact us, via e-mail, within 5 days of receipt, including a description of the fault or damage alleged and corresponding photographs where necessary. We will assess the information and provide a replacement if necessary. We may require your initial item to be returned to us.
We will not provide refunds or replace products that have been damaged through incorrect use. We reserve the right to make this determination, at our sole discretion.
Please pay careful attention to any product information, or care instructions that may accompany your order, or be displayed alongside your chosen item on our website. Hot Dog & Co. cannot be responsible for damage caused by misuse of our products, or by not using them in accordance with the recommended use. Our products are not toys, and should not be given to children to handle.
We ask that all customers make themselves aware of the measurements of their desired product before purchase. Sizes will not vary from these dimensions, however product colours may vary slightly in real life. This can be attributed to differences in computer or phone screen colour calibration. Small variations in colour will not provide sufficient reason to return or exchange your product.
