Our Customer Terms of Service is an agreement that governs our customers’ use of the BenefitHut services. BenefitHut services are aimed at business customers only and are not available to consumers, including individuals, sole traders and unincorporated partnerships. If you think that you may be a consumer please do not use the BenefitHut services.
Our agreement consists of the following documents:
Master Terms: These contain the core legal and commercial terms that apply to your subscription.
Product Specific Terms: These include any additional terms displayed on our website that apply to your use of each of our product offerings, our consulting and other services and third party services.

Your Order Form is the BenefitHut-approved form created following your purchase of one of our products or services through our online payment process or via in-app purchase. It contains all the details about your purchase, including your subscription term, products purchased and your fees.

If you have an active BenefitHut subscription, we will let you know when we update the terms via in-app notification or by email (if you subscribe to receive email updates).
