|1. INFORMATION ABOUT US||www.housebites.com is a website operated by Housebites Limited ("we" or "us"), incorporated and registered in the England and Wales, whose registered office is at 19 Briset Street, London EC1M 5NR. Our Company registration number is 07237173. Our VAT number is 111 0001 19. Housebites is a business where the menus and food are prepared by independent Housebites' chefs (our "Chefs"). Each of our Chefs is independently responsible for legal and regulatory compliance and ultimately our Chefs are responsible for the operation of their kitchen and all compliance issues and issues arising from any Meals ordered by you from our Service. Any products ordered from our Chefs will be at the sole liability of that Chef. Please note that we accept orders as an agent on behalf of our Chefs. The resulting legal contract is between you and our Chef and is subject to these terms and conditions.|
|2. PURPOSE||The purpose of our Service is to provide a simple and convenient service to you, linking you to the chef and menu of your choice and allowing you to order Meals from them.|
|3. SERVICE AVAILABILITY||Housebites offers a delivery service conducted by our Chefs throughout London. Each Chef has a prescribed delivery area. This is to ensure that their Meals reach your door when they are at their best. If you live outside the delivery areas, a message will appear on screen notifying you that ordering online will not be possible. We do not accept orders from individuals to a post code in which we do not have a Chef. Operating hours will vary depending on local trading conditions and the availability of our Chefs. Please click on the relevant link to view the menus on our Service, and then click on your chosen menu which will provide you with the option to submit your order to your chosen Chef.|
|4. ORDERS||When you place an order through our Service, a screen thanking you for your order and confirming your order has been received and accepted by the Chef (the "Confirmation Screen") will be displayed. The contract will be between you and the Chef and will only be formed when you have been presented with the Confirmation Screen. You should also receive a confirmation email. Please ensure that you have given us the correct email address as this is how we will communicate with you about your Order. Please also ensure that you give us an accurate address and telephone number, to ensure that your Meal arrives at the correct location. The Chef is solely responsible for all food preparation and deliveries. Housebites seeks to provide a quality service, however Housebites does not accept any responsibility or liability for the quality or quantity of any Meals ordered by you and delivered by the Chef to you. We do monitor our Chefs very closely and it is of utmost importance to us that they comply with our standards and help us to maintain our reputation. Please let us know if you have any comments relating to our Chefs or in respect of the Meals, by using the Feedback section of the Service.|
|5. MEALS||All Meals are subject to availability. Your Chef may offer an alternative for any Meal he cannot provide you with. We may use nuts in the preparation of some of our Meals. The Chef's menu page will let you know if this is the case. If you have an allergy please let our Chef know at the time you place your order.|
|6. AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY||
Our aim is to provide the best delivery service possible. Unfortunately things do not always go to plan and factors, such as traffic conditions and weather, may occasionally prevent us from achieving our targets in this regard. We will do our best to ensure that your Meal is delivered at the time specified in your order, which takes into account the number of orders and the circumstances being faced by the Chef at that time. If your Housebites order arrives slightly late for any reason, our hot food is served in microwavable containers, which makes re-heating any dish very simple.
If you are not at home or answering your door or phone during the 30 minute delivery timeslot confirmed, our Courier may be required to leave the meal on your doorstep. This is because the Courier will need to continue delivering the Chef's food to other customers, and cannot hang around waiting if unsure of your location.
|7. CANCELLATIONS||You have the right to cancel an order up to 3 hours before the meal is due to be delivered. Cancelled meals will, however, be reimbursed through meal vouchers, totalling the equivalent value of the cancelled order. Refunds will only be given in exceptional circumstances. Customers can cancel an order by contacting our service directly. Housebites and the Chef reserve the right to cancel any order, and you will be informed if your order has been cancelled. You will be fully reimbursed for any orders cancelled in accordance with this clause. A Chef will classify a 'Started Order' as any order which is cancelled after food has been used to start preparing the order. Housebites alone will determine whether an order is a 'Started Order' or not. No refunds or meal vouchers will be given for Started Orders.|
|8. PRICE AND PAYMENT||The price of any Meal will be listed on our Service. Prices include VAT. Prices will vary between menus. Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which you have been presented with on the Confirmation Screen, save in the case of an obvious pricing mistake, whereby we will notify you as soon as we can about the pricing issue. You may be able to cancel your order once we notify you. Despite our best efforts, some of the Meals listed on our Service may be incorrectly priced. The relevant Chef will normally verify prices as part of the order process. Payment for all Meals can be by credit or debit card through our Service. Should you choose to pay by credit or debit card, once your order has been confirmed your credit or debit card will have been authorised and the amount marked for payment. Payment is made directly to Housebites and is subsequently passed on by Housebites to the Chef.|
|9. MARKETING CAMPAIGNS||All campaigns publicised on public transport are limited to the first 5,000 customers unless otherwise stated.|
