Once the delivery is made in accordance with your instructions, the Meals are deemed to be your responsibility. We are not able to deliver your Meals at a specific time. In any circumstance where we indicate that we will try and deliver at a specific time, this will in no way form part of this contract and failure to deliver at such time will not constitute a breach of these Terms.

(a) this will be regarded as a successful delivery; and
(b) you will be required to pay an additional redelivery charge.

If our supply of the Meals is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.

If so, this will have been stated in the description of the Meals on our Site. We will contact you in writing to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 10.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the Meals late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

7.11 We may also suspend supply of the Meals if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the Meals when you are supposed to (see clause 12.5), we may suspend supply of the Meals until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the Meals. The next calendar day of delivery (if a delivery is scheduled) shall be deleted from your subscription in line with our 5 working day notice period policy regarding any schedule changes to your delivery. As well as suspending the Meals we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 12.6).

8.1 Cancelling your subscription.
(a) If you wish to cancel your subscription to our Services, you need to email us at email@example.com.
(b) We require you to notify us 7 full calendar days (London time) in advance of your delivery day in order to cancel the Services in all instances. This is because, after this time, we will have committed supplies for your subscription for the following week and/or started to prepare your meals for that following week.
(c) We will process cancellations as quickly as possible. However, please note that cancellations take at least 7 full calendar days (London time), immediately following our receipt of cancellation notification, to take effect. You will receive your usual deliveries during the cancellation period, the cost of which cannot be refunded.
8.2 Cancellation costs. For all cancellations, the daily price of the Services will be adjusted to reflect the number of days actually delivered. Your refund will then be added as credit to your account. You can use this against any future orders with us, or you can request for this credit to be ‘cashed out’ by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a 10% administration charge applied to all cash out requests, to cover our internal administration costs and card processing fees.
8.3 Cancellation prior to first delivery. If you notify us that you wish to cancel at least 7 calendar days before your first delivery, we will cancel your order and refund a maximum of the full amount paid by you. Any refunds will be made within thirty (30) days from the date on which your cash out request is submitted. You can re-subscribe at any time, but we reserve the right not to permit re-subscription to our Services.
8.4 Exclusions from your right to cancel. In some instances, the law does not allow you to cancel an order in certain circumstances and one of these is where a company is supplying goods which are likely to deteriorate or expire rapidly, including food & drinks with short expiry limits. Once we have started to prepare your order, unfortunately we cannot accept the cancellation of that order, which means that in most instances we are unable to accept cancellations of defined length subscriptions.

Pursuant to regulation 28 of the Consumer Contracts (Information, cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, contracts for the supply of goods are exempt from the right to withdrawal if those goods are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly.

We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the correct price of the Meals at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the correct price of the Meals at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid.
