Unless otherwise stated, any reference to a paragraph is to a paragraph of these Site Terms.
INFORMATION ABOUT US, HOW TO CONTACT US AND THE SCOPE OF OUR SERVICES
Company details: GetFed.net is a website operated by GetFed Ltd ("we", "us" or "GetFed"), a private limited company incorporated and registered in Scotland with registered number SC560411 whose registered office is at c/o CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang LLP, 1 West Regent Street, Glasgow, Scotland G2 1AP.
How to contact us: You can contact us by writing to our customer support team at Support@getfed.net.
How we may contact you: If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone, text message or by writing to you at the e-mail address or postal address you have provided to us.
Scope of services:
We provide an online marketplace platform which enables Home Cooks to sell their Meals using the Site and to communicate and transact directly with Site users that are seeking to purchase Meals. GetFed markets Meals on behalf of Home Cooks, concludes orders on their behalf and, where possible, delivers Meals to you. GetFed does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, test, manage or offer any Meals.
When you order a Meal from a Home Cook using the Site ("Order") you are entering into a contract directly with the Home Cook. GetFed is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between you and the Home Cooks, nor is GetFed a regulated food business establishment or insurer of the Home Cooks. GetFed is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Site user, except as is specified in our payment terms within these Site Terms. All Meals are subject to availability.
Whilst we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, GetFed has no control over and does not guarantee: (i) the existence, quality, safety, sustainability, or legality of any Meals (or their ingredients), or any Meal listings or Home Cook services (including delivery services); (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Meal descriptions, Ratings (defined at paragraph 7.4 below) or other Home Cook content; or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Home Cook or third party. GetFed does not endorse any Home Cook's Meals, delivery service (as applicable) or any other service the Home Cooks provide. Any reference to a Home Cook or other Site member being “verified” (or similar language) only indicates that the Home Cook has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by GetFed about any Home Cook, including of the Home Cook’s identity, background, cooking ability, standards of food hygiene and safety or whether the Home Cook is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when placing an Order, using any available delivery services of the Home Cook or when communicating and interacting with any Home Cook, whether online or in person. Visitor Materials (defined in paragraph 10.1.1 below) (including photographs of Meals) are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of a Meal at the time the photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by GetFed of any Home Cook or Meal.
You are solely responsible for compliance with any and all laws, rules, regulations and tax obligations that may apply to your use of the Site.
Purpose: The purpose of our Service is to provide a simple and convenient service to you, linking you to our Home Cooks and allowing you to purchase Meals from them. GetFed markets Meals on behalf of Home Cooks registered on the Site.
Service availability: GetFed offers an ordering and delivery service (subject to GetFed’s and/or the Home Cooks’ ability to deliver to you) on behalf of Home Cooks. The geographical extent (by postcode area) to which Home Cooks may use the Site to market their Meals is set out in Appendix 1 to these Site Terms. Such geographical extent is subject to change during and following GetFed’s trial period at the sole discretion of GetFed. Where Meals are being delivered, each Home Cook has a prescribed delivery area. You will only be able to Order a Meal from a Home Cook if you are placing your Order from within the respective Home Cook's prescribed delivery area. This is to ensure that Meals reach you when they are at their best. If you live outside a Home Cook's prescribed delivery area, you will not be able to place an Order with such Home Cook. Availability to place an Order will be at the discretion of the Home Cook.

HOW TO MAKE AN ORDER AND HOW IT IS PROCESSED
Terms applicable to all Orders: Subject to meeting any requirements (such as completing any verification or registration process) set by GetFed or the Home Cook, you can Order a Meal by following the respective Order process. The cost of the Meal(s), an administration charge of £0.75 (the "Administration Charge") and, if applicable, a £2.00 cost in respect of the Home Cook or third party delivery provider (as applicable) delivering the Meal(s) to you (collectively, “Total Fees”) will be taken from you on the completion of your Order in accordance with the terms of paragraph 6 below.
Compiling your Order: Once you have selected the Meal(s) you wish to order from your chosen Home Cook and provided the other required information such as number of portions required and payment information, you will be given the opportunity to submit your Order by clicking or selecting the "Pay Now" or similar button. It is important that you check all the information that you enter and correct any errors before clicking or selecting this button; once you do so we will start processing your Order and errors cannot be corrected.
Amending or cancelling your Order: Once you have submitted your Order and your payment has been processed, you will not be entitled to change or cancel your Order, nor will you be entitled to a refund (please refer to paragraph 5.6 for details of the process relating to rejected Orders). If you wish to change or cancel your Order, you may contact our customer support team in accordance with paragraph 1.2 and they will attempt to contact the Home Cook in order to communicate your request(s). However, there is no guarantee that we will be able to reach the Home Cook or that the Home Cook will agree to your requests as they may have already started processing your Order.
Payment authorisation: Where any payment you make is not authorised or processed, your Order will not be processed or communicated to the relevant Home Cook.
Processing your Order: On receipt of your Order and subject to paragraph 5.4 above, we will begin processing it by sending it to the relevant Home Cook. After the Home Cook has confirmed that he/she has accepted your Order, we will notify you by e-mail or by SMS text message (“Confirmation of Acceptance”) that your Order has been accepted. The contract for the provision of the Meal you order through GetFed will be between you and the Home Cook. If you do not receive Confirmation of Acceptance your payment will be returned to you as soon as is possible (please refer to paragraph 6.5 below). Please note that any earlier confirmation page that you may see and any Order confirmation e-mail or SMS text message that you may receive merely indicate that your Order has been received and is being processed by us, and does not necessarily mean that your Order has been accepted by the Home Cook.
Home Cook rejections: We encourage all of our Home Cooks to accept all Orders, however, all Meals are subject to availability. Home Cooks are required to communicate a rejection of an Order promptly, and we will notify you (by e-mail or by SMS text message) as soon as reasonably practicable if a Home Cook rejects your Order. Home Cooks do have the discretion to reject Orders at any time, for any reason. Please refer to paragraph 6.5 below regarding the return of your payment following a rejected Order.
Meals and Allergies: The Home Cooks may use nuts: (a) in the preparation of the Meals they list; and/or (b) in the premises in which the Meals are produced. GetFed cannot guarantee that any of the Meals sold by the Home Cooks are free from nuts, or any other allergens (such as eggs, milk and gluten). Home Cooks have an obligation to disclose any allergens in the Meals they are selling but if you have any nut allergies, we would suggest that you do not use the Site or Service. If you are unsure, please contact the Home Cook prior to ordering.
Delivery of your Order: Estimated times for deliveries (where available) and collections are provided by the Home Cooks and are only estimates. Neither we nor the Home Cooks guarantee that Orders will be delivered or will be available for collection within the estimated times.
For reasons of security and food safety, GetFed will not leave your Order unattended at your address. GetFed will not normally agree to leave your Order with anyone at another address (for example, a neighbour). If GetFed does agree to do so in exceptional cases, this is done at your own risk and GetFed will not be responsible for any losses you may incur as a result, for example, theft, tampering, contamination and the result of any change in temperature in respect of items which need to be kept chilled or frozen.
If you provide GetFed with an incorrect delivery address and your Order is signed for by someone else GetFed cannot be responsible for any losses you may incur as a result, for example, theft, tampering, contamination and the result of any change in temperature in respect of items which need to be kept chilled or frozen. Once delivered, it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure appropriate storage of the frozen food as soon as possible.
Chilled products are packaged in specially designed insulated boxes containing ice or gel packs to maintain the required temperature. Frozen and chilled products should be put in freezers and refrigerators respectively upon receipt. Cooking, re-heating and eat buy instructions must be strictly followed for your own safety. Make sure that re-heated food is piping hot throughout.
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract.
Creation of contractual relationship on making an order: Upon the placing of an Order and subject to the Home Cook’s right to cancel an Order at any time (in accordance with paragraph 5.6 above), a legally binding agreement is formed between you and the Home Cook. GetFed will collect the Total Fees from you in accordance with paragraph 6 below. Such payment will be taken from your account on the placing of an Order.
Pre Order: For an Order placed for Meal that has not yet been released, this is deemed a statement of Meal preference and does not constitute a supply or a guarantee. All Meals are subject to availability.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
VAT and delivery costs: Prices will be as quoted on the Services. These prices include VAT (if applicable) but may exclude delivery costs (if you opt for delivery (where available) instead of collection) and the Administration Charge. These will be added to the total amount due where applicable.
Incorrect pricing: This Site contains a large number of Meals and it is possible that some of the Meals may include incorrect prices. If the correct price for an Order is higher than the price stated on the Site, our customer support team or the Home Cook may contact you before the relevant Order is dispatched. In such an event, neither we nor the relevant Home Cook is under any obligation to ensure that the Order is provided to you at an incorrect lower price or to compensate you in respect of incorrect pricing. Should you be overcharged for a Meal, you should contact us in accordance with paragraph 1.2 above.
Payment methods: Payment for all Meals can be made by credit or debit card through our Service. Once your Order is placed, your credit or debit card will be authorised and the amount taken for payment. Payment is made directly to GetFed and an amount is subsequently passed on by GetFed to the Home Cook. We are authorised by our Home Cooks to accept payment on their behalf and payment of the price of any Meals to us will discharge your obligations to pay such price to the Home Cooks.
Card payments: Please note that from time to time there may be delays with the processing of card payments and transactions; this may result in payments taking up to sixty (60) days to be deducted from your bank account or charged to your credit or debit card.
Rejected Orders: Because of standard banking procedures, once you have submitted an Order that you are paying for by credit card or debit card and your payment has been authorised and processed, your bank or card issuer will transfer to us the full amount of your Order. If no Confirmation of Acceptance is given or if your Order is subsequently rejected by the Home Cook (as described in paragraphs 5.5 or 5.6 above) or cancelled for any other reason the full amount of your Order will be refunded to you (unless GetFed determines at its sole discretion otherwise). However, this may take between 3 to 5 working days (or longer, depending on your bank or card issuer). You acknowledge and agree that neither we nor the relevant Home Cook will be responsible or liable to you in relation to this delay by your bank or card issuer in the release of funds back into your account.
General: Customer support is extremely important to us. Subject to paragraphs 7.5 and 12, our Customer Support team will therefore try to assist you where possible if you have any problems with your Order. You can contact our customer support by contacting us in accordance with paragraph 1.2 above.
Questions about your Order: If your Order is taking longer than expected or if you have any other problems with your Order, you should (in the first instance) contact the Home Cook directly to resolve your questions or queries. If you are unable to contact the Home Cook, please contact our customer support team as soon as is reasonably practicable in accordance with paragraph 1.2 above and we will attempt to contact the Home Cook in order to follow up on your question or query.
Changing or cancelling your Order: If you wish to change or cancel your Order after it has been submitted and payment has been authorised, you may contact our customer support team in accordance with paragraph 1.2 and they will attempt to contact the Home Cook in order to communicate your request(s). However, there is no guarantee that we will be able to reach the Home Cook, or that the Home Cook will agree to your requests as they may have already started processing your Order. If the Home Cook has started to prepare your Order, the Home Cook will have the sole discretion as to whether to agree to your change or cancelation request.
Complaints or feedback:
Within a certain timeframe after completing an Order, you may be prompted to leave a public rating (“Rating”) regarding your experience with a Home Cook. Any Ratings reflect the opinions of the individuals using the Service and do not reflect the opinion of GetFed. Ratings are not verified by GetFed for accuracy and may be incorrect or misleading.
Ratings by individuals must be fair, truthful and factual and may not contain any offensive or defamatory language. Ratings must comply with and are subject to the terms of paragraph 10 below.
You are prohibited from manipulating the Ratings system in any manner, such as instructing a third party to provide a positive or negative Rating about a Home Cook.
In the event that you are particularly pleased with or dissatisfied with the quality of any Meals or the service provided by a Home Cook, please consider providing a Rating to reflect your experience. The Ratings are an important part of our quality control process.
Compensation: If you are dissatisfied with the quality of any Meals or the service provided by a Home Cook and wish to seek a refund, a proportionate price reduction or any other compensation, you should contact the Home Cook directly to lodge your complaint and, where appropriate, follow the Home Cook’s own complaint procedures. If you are unable to contact the Home Cook, or the Home Cook refuses to deal with your complaint, you can contact our customer support team as described above within 48 hours of placing your Order and we will attempt to contact the Home Cook in order to request compensation on your behalf. Please note that we have no control over Home Cooks and the quality of the Meals that they provide, and we are not able to provide, and have no responsibility or liability for providing, any compensation to you on behalf of any Home Cook.

EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under these Site Terms that is caused by events outside our reasonable control ("Force Majeure Event").
A Force Majeure Event includes any act, event, non-occurrence, omission or accident beyond our reasonable control and includes in particular (without limitation) the following:

Our performance under these Site Terms is deemed to be suspended for the period that any Force Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring any Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under these Site Terms may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
Severance: If a court finds part of these Site Terms illegal, the rest will continue to have full force and effect. If any of these Site Terms are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions of these Site Terms which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.

No waiver: Even if we delay in enforcing these Site Terms, we can still enforce them later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Site Terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking these Site Terms, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
Assignment: We may transfer these Site Terms to someone else. You may not transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Site Terms without our prior written consent. We may transfer any of our rights or obligations under these Site Terms without your prior written consent to any of our affiliates or any business that we enter into a joint venture with, purchase or are sold to.

VOUCHER TERMS AND CONDITIONS
All discounts, vouchers or codes only apply to first Order by new customers of GetFed unless otherwise stated.
New customers are only permitted to use one discount voucher or code when placing their first Order only. Subsequent Orders will then not be eligible for any new customer discounts, vouchers or codes.
A new customer is defined as someone who registers, makes a meal selection and enters the discount or voucher code specified on the advert, coupon or leaflet, at checkout during their Order procedure.
A minimum spend may be applicable in order to validate and use any discount, voucher or code.
Unless otherwise stated, all discounts, vouchers or codes must be redeemed within the period specified on the applicable discount, voucher or code.
Only one discount, voucher or code can be redeemed per Order and each discount, voucher or code can only be used once per person.
Any discounts, vouchers or codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other GetFed offer.
Discounts, vouchers or codes cannot be exchanged for cash or any other alternatives and have no monetary value.
Cancelled Orders will invalidate the use of that code on an account. If this is a new customer discount or code, new customers will then not be eligible for any subsequent new customer discounts, vouchers or codes.
All discounts, vouchers and codes can only be used on one Order, and any remaining credit from that discount, voucher or code cannot be carried forward to any additional or subsequent Orders.
Discounts, vouchers or codes may be provided on a customer service basis.
Any attempt to manipulate the system and use of discounts, vouchers or codes by use of bulk entry via third parties or syndicates, macros, 'script', 'brute force', masking identity by manipulating IP addresses, using identities other than their own or any other automated means (including systems which can be programmed to enter), will render the Order and use of that discount, voucher or code invalid and may potentially lead to that account being closed down.
If for any reason a discount, voucher or code becomes invalid due to technical failures or any other causes beyond the control of GetFed, or a meal becomes unavailable, GetFed reserves the right (subject to any written directions given under applicable law) to cancel, suspend or modify the campaign that is related to that discount, voucher or code and not re-issue any additional discounts, vouchers or codes to affected customers.
GetFed reserves the right, where necessary, to undertake all such action as is reasonable to protect itself against fraudulent or invalid redemptions including, without limitation, to require further verification as to the identity, age, and other relevant details of a customer.
By redeeming the discount, voucher or code, customers agree to release GetFed from any liability whatsoever for any claims, costs, injuries, losses or damages of any kind arising out of or in connection with the campaign or with the acceptance or possession of any Order.
