Our contract with you

Once You have placed an order on the Website and We have validated Your card payment and accepted Your order, we will send You an email confirming Your order and setting out what meals You have ordered, the Delivery date(s) and the prices of those meals.

These Terms regulate the supply of meals to You by ICare (GB) Ltd. Any other terms, conditions or representations (other than those made fraudulently or implied by statute) are excluded.

We may update these Terms from time to time. Any changes will be notified to You via the email address provided by You on registration or by a suitable notice on the Website. If You do not wish to accept the new Terms, You should cease using the Website. If You continue to do so, after the date on which the changes come into effect, Your use will signify Your agreement to be bound by the new Terms..

Price and delivery

Meal prices are shown on the Website. There is no Delivery charge.  For hot meals, there is no minimum order, so You can order just one meal.  For Frozen meals, there is a minimum order of 5 frozen meals per order.

Processing orders takes a little time. For hot meals, We need 3 days from receiving Your order before We can Deliver. For frozen meals, We need 7 days from receiving Your order.

These lead times are built into Our Website, so the Website will tell You all the days when We can Deliver Your hot meal or frozen meals. We regret that You will not be able to select a Delivery date which falls within either of these periods.

Registration

In order to place an order You must first register or have a valid Account on Our Website.

To place an order, You must be over 18, require Delivery to an address in our Delivery area, and have a credit card or debit card acceptable to Us in Your name.

We reserve the right to decline a new customer registration or suspend your Account at any time and at Our sole discretion.

When You register, You will create a username and password which You must use whenever You shop with Us. Please keep these in a safe place as You will be responsible for all orders placed, and other activities carried out, under Your password and username. You are also responsible for anything done using Your email address, or using Your email address in combination with Your password. If You think that someone else may either know or be using Your username and password, please contact Us immediately.

You warrant that the details provided by You on registration are true, accurate, current and complete in all respects.

Each registration is for a single user only. You must not share Your user name and password with any other person, or with multiple users on a network.

It is possible to register on behalf of a relative, and to order meals for more than one person living together.

Our right to suspend or cancel your registration

We may suspend or cancel Your registration immediately without notice at Our absolute discretion or if You breach any of Your obligations under these Terms.

The suspension or cancellation of Your registration and Your right to use the Website shall not affect either party's rights or liabilities.

Payment

You must pay for Your order using a UK credit or debit card.

If You find Your card has been used without Your authority please tell Us within 24 hours of finding out. You must also tell Your card issuer within the time limits You agree in Your card scheme rules.

Delivery

We always aim to Deliver Your meals within the Delivery times We have agreed with You, but We cannot accept liability if We Deliver outside of those times.

We can only Deliver to an address which is stored in your Account section of Our Website and which is within Our Delivery area

When You register on Our Website, You will be asked for the telephone number of a friend or relation. If You do not answer the door when We Deliver, our Delivery drivers will ensure that You are alright by contacting Your next door neighbour, or a friend or a next of kin as provided by You.

We acknowledge that in many cases next of kin will register on behalf of the relative to whom the meals will be Delivered. In such cases the contract of sale is made with the next of kin who will be liable for payment.

Cancelling or Changing Orders

You can cancel or change Your order at any time. The way our systems work means that if You want to remove meals from or add meals to Your order and keep the same Delivery date, You need to Let Us Know before 4pm on the day before Your order is due to be Delivered. This also applies if You want to cancel Your order. This helps Us keep Our costs down and Our prices low, and releases Delivery slots for other customers.

However if You forget or change Your mind later, simply tell Our driver when s/he Delivers Your order, and s/he will take away the meals You don't want.  Please note that You cannot return a meal once We have Delivered it.

You can change Your order anytime up to Delivery, but We won't necessarily be able to Deliver on the Delivery date You originally selected. We may need to agree another day and time to complete Your order.

If, on Delivery, the quality of any meal is not to Our usual high standards, We will happily credit the money. You must Let Us Know as soon as possible (You can tell Our driver when s/he makes the Delivery, or up to 7 working days after We Deliver Your order.

If You cancel Your order and We have already debited Your credit or debit card, We will hold Your payment as a credit until Your next order.  If You do not wish to order again please Let Us Know and We will arrange a refund.
