1.1 This mobile application or order website (depending on the platform you use) (the "Service") is made available to you by Qepos Solution Limited, company number 7322758 and provides you with the possibility of purchasing items from a number of particular cafés, restaurants and other takeaways (the "Restaurant").
Agent: When you purchase items on the Service, Qepos acts as an agent on behalf of the Restaurant as Qepos has the authority to conclude the purchase agreement with you on behalf of the Restaurant. As a result, an agreement is made between you and the Restaurant for the purchase of the Restaurant's items in your Order, and Qepos is not a party to that purchase agreement. Moreover, Qepos has the authority of the Restaurant to receive payment for the Orders you make through the Service, and by paying Qepos for such Orders you will be treated as making payment to the Restaurant and the Restaurant will not be able to make any further claim against you for payment.
Conclusion of agreement with the Restaurant: A completed order (each an "Order") on the Service constitutes a binding offer to the Restaurant for the conclusion of an agreement to deliver the relevant items you ordered. A binding agreement has not been concluded between you and the Restaurant for delivery of the items until the Restaurant has accepted your Order and an order acknowledgement has been sent to you. However, you acknowledge that by clicking on the "FINISH THE ORDER" (or similarly named) button, you enter into an obligation to pay for the item(s) in your Order.
2.1 To use the Service, you must ensure that you have a functioning device to use for accessing the Service and that you have an internet connection. When you purchase an item on the Service, you need to pay using a credit or debit card accepted by the Service on an external PCI-certified server.
2.2 When you use the Service, you warrant that you (i) are legally capable of entering into a binding agreement for the use of the Service and the purchase of items from the Restaurant; (ii) are at least 18 years old; (iii) will use the Service only for your personal, non-commercial use and not for any re-distribution of items; and (iv) will not infringe the intellectual property rights or other rights of third parties when using the Service. Please note that it is an offence for any person under the age of 18 to purchase, or attempt to purchase, alcohol or for any person over the age of 18 to purchase alcohol on behalf of any person under the age of 18.
2.3 You can use the Service only for its intended purposes. You may not separate any individual component of the Service or incorporate it into your own or others' programs or software or exploit it in any other way for purposes other than those for which it was intended. You may not assist, encourage or authorise any third party to modify, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Service or parts of the software thereof, whether in whole or in part, or create any derivative works from all or any part of the Service.
2.4 All prices and charges stated on the Service for all items etc. are inclusive of all current direct and indirect taxes, including VAT.
2.5 You must not manipulate transactions made on the Service in any way or use the Service in contravention of applicable legislation nor permit or assist others to do so.
3.1 When you purchase items on the Service, you will be asked to enter your payment details to pay for items using your payment card. Your payment details will be saved and stored by the Service on a secure, external and PCI-certified server. The Service uses the 3 digits on the back of your payment card as a code to make payments through the Service secure. On the collection or delivery of items, you may be asked to show your device displaying your Order number to the Restaurant staff to allow the Restaurant to identify you and your Order. You are responsible for the safekeeping of your order number for such identification.
3.2 Qepos will ensure that any information passing between the Service and the server is encrypted. Qepos will not be liable for any claims arising from the misuse of your payment card where such misuse is a result of your failure to keep your payment card secure.
3.3 The Service procures delivery of the ordered items to you within reasonable industry times. The Restaurant may notify you of an estimated time for delivery or collection of your items. Please note that such estimates cannot be relied on or treated as guarantees.
3.4 The Service will comply with applicable legislation and regulations related to your use of the Service, including regulations concerning distance selling, data protection and food safety.
3.5 Handling fee. In addition to the price for the ordered items and, if relevant, delivery, Qepos will charge a small handling fee for each Order placed on the Service (irrespective of whether the Restaurant accepts such Order). The handling fee applicable at any time will be clearly stated on the general overview of your order before you place your order and complete payment. When Qepos charges the handling fee, we do not do so as agent for the Restaurant. The handling fee is a service fee payable by you directly to us for use of our Service and is not refundable under any circumstances.
4.2 Change or cancellation of your Order. Once you have submitted and paid for your Order, you will be entitled to change or cancel your Order on the Service until the Restaurant has accepted it. The Order will have been accepted once you receive email confirmation of the same. You may also edit any typing errors etc. directly on the Service until the Restaurant has accepted your order.
4.3 The Restaurant may reject your Order, for example if the Restaurant no longer has the items in stock or if the Restaurant is too busy to be able to fulfil your Order within a reasonable time. If the Restaurant rejects your Order, you will receive notification of this.
4.4 Refunds for cancelled or rejected Orders. When you complete an Order, your bank or card issuer will ring-fence the amount owed. If you cancel the Order or if the Restaurant rejects it, your bank or card issuer will release the amount back to your account (without transferring the amount to Qepos). Please note that this process may take up to 7 days.
