Terms & Conditions
These Terms and Conditions are applicable every time you access our website and/or order goods from our website or pricelists. Please note that these Terms and Conditions also incorporate the following sections which we advise that you read:
By clicking “Proceed to Payment” you confirm that you have read and accepted our Terms & Conditions.
• All orders placed through our website or by mail order will be subject to our acceptance of the order.
• When you submit an order to us our website will send you an acknowledgement of receipt (please refer to Haith’s Liability below).
• You should check your email for accuracy and let us know immediately if there are any errors. We will contact you by email or telephone regarding any delivery delays or payment issues.
• When you place an order you are agreeing to purchase goods and allowing us to use your personal details solely for the purpose of supplying the goods you have ordered.
• We will where necessary pass on your details to our trusted subcontractors, for example: The Royal Mail, FedEx and companies who ship goods on our behalf. We do not allow these companies to use your personal information other than to deliver the goods you have ordered.
• Promotional codes are codes that enable customers to obtain benefits such as discounts, free delivery and free gifts. These codes are non-transferable so may only be used by the person to whom they are issued and must only be used in accordance with their terms and conditions of use. If you use a promotional code to claim a promotional benefit, you must first check that it was issued to you and that you are eligible to use it. By using it to claim a promotional benefit you will be confirming that:-
i. you are entitled to use the code;
ii. you meet all the conditions that apply to its use;
iii. you agree to the terms set out below.
If, before accepting your order, we find that you are not entitled to use the code or do not meet all the terms and conditions of its use, we may reject your order.
• Should you wish to cancel your order or return any goods, please go to the Returns section for further information.
Processing orders and payment:
Whilst it is our intention to keep our website/pricelists up to date and error free, product description or pricing errors may occur. If we discover such an error after you have submitted an order to us, we will contact you prior to accepting your order with the correct details. You may then either cancel your order or re-confirm it based on the correct information.
We aim to despatch goods the same (working) day they are ordered if completed by 1pm. However, unlike many bird food companies, we prepare fresh batches of SUPERCLEAN(TM) bird food daily on the premises and despatch can occasionally take a little longer, if (for example) we are waiting for fresh ingredients from our high-quality suppliers.
If in the unlikely event that one or more of the products you order is/are not in stock, your order may be delivered in separate parcels and delivery may take a little longer.
We aim to do our best and keep our website up to date; however, technical problems can sometimes slow down communication between our office and the website which may on rare occasions affect its accuracy. Items can sometimes sell out faster than expected, and may no longer be available. On rare occasions like these we would offer you alternatives. Please note, though, that holding items in the site’s shopping basket or wish list does not guarantee their availability or price. Goods will only be allocated on completion of your order. Delivery dates quoted are estimated and can be affected by stock availability and in extreme cases the weather. Our reputation as a trusted supplier of quality bird food guarantees that we will do our very best to deliver the right goods on time.
We are not liable for any losses, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused by any delay.
Online we accept payment by credit or debit cards or via PayPal. All card payments are authorised at the point of ordering and we require your full details to obtain authorisation. We operate a safer form of token payment to protect your credit card data. We require your name, address and telephone number. These must match the exact details registered with the card user. We will not debit your card until your items are ready for despatch. In the unlikely event that the items you have ordered are out of stock, your order will be cancelled and you will be refunded should you not wish for us to provide an alternative product.
The Haith’s and Bill Oddie’s Bird Food Recipes’ websites use VeriFone Token Payment Gateway technology to prevent us capturing vulnerable credit card data.
We link the transaction to verified by Visa and 3D Secure authorisation systems which require additional information from you in the shape (usually) of a password. This additional layer of security protects you and us from cyber crime.
We use industry standard 128-bit SSL encryption technology to securely transfer personal details sent by the website. Our secure server software uses a unique digital certificate to encrypt your data; however, this data DOES NOT contain your credit/debit card information.
It’s our number one priority to keep our customers and their birds happy; therefore, if you’re not 100% satisfied with your purchase within 28 days (of receipt) we’ll refund or replace it, as necessary. This does not affect your statutory rights. Please ‘phone 0800 298 7054 for details. Bank Holiday Deliveries:
See “Delivery Information” for seasonal updates.
In the unlikely event that one or more of the products you order is/are not in stock, your order may be delivered in separate parcels and delivery may take a little longer. A member of our Customer Service Team would contact you in this event.
Delivery is via FedEx or Royal Mail (Small Parcel Service).

We do not accept liability (except as set out below) for any errors and/or omissions contained in our website/pricelists and reserve the right to change information, prices, ingredients and descriptions of listed goods, products and services at any time and without notice.
In the event of a pricing error being found on the goods you have ordered, we shall be under no obligation at all to fulfil the order. In the event that goods have been advertised and purchased at an incorrect price, we will inform you as soon as possible. Of course, we will advise you of the correct price and you will be given an opportunity to order the goods at this correct price. If you have already been charged for the goods (in the context of the aforementioned) we shall credit your card within 14 days and re-charge your card if you have decided to purchase the goods at the correct price.
Were you to receive the incorrect goods, damaged or defective goods or the goods not reflect the description given online, we will make good any shortage or non-delivery, replace or repair said damaged or defective goods – or refund (refund = refund the appropriate card within 14 days) the amount you paid for the goods. See “Our guarantee”. You must inform us in writing at the address stated in the confirmation email. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
In the event where a customer has asked that goods be left in a specific location, Haith’s will endeavour to pass on special requests to our carriers. Please note that Haith’s accept no responsibility for items which may go missing or become damaged once delivered.
Due to the organic nature of seeds, mixes, peanuts and other natural produce, sizes and colour may vary. We reserve the right to adjust our seed blends from time to time as seasonal supply could affect procurement. However, where we substitute a seed we will endeavour to replace it with a seed of equal value (Equal Value = cost, nutritional analysis i.e. protein, fibre, calories etc.).
We recommend that bird products are kept away from pets. All of Haith’s foods and mixes may contain traces of nuts. Please don't allow your dog to eat bird food - it's for the birds. Some bird foods may include raisins/sultanas and these can be toxic to dogs (even when cooked). If your dog has eaten raisins it's important you seek a vet's advice immediately.
Our consumer goods are not for re-sale, unless you have a valid trade account with Haith's. By purchasing goods from Haith's (online or otherwise) you are agreeing to our terms and conditions and more specifically those goods you have purchased are for your personal use. In other words, you should not re-sell our goods; re-package our goods; decant our goods into different weights nor re-badge them and pass them off under a different brand name.
Intellectual Property and Trademarks:
Our website and marketing material contains a category of property that includes tangible creations such as trademarks, ideas and innovation. Using our websites is not approval to use Haith’s intellectual properties. Likewise, our website features unique mixes, many of which we consider valuable to Haith’s, which is why we show the TM (™) icon. We will protect infringement and misuse of these goods.
