3. PURCHASE OF Sheldrakes Seasonal Steal VOUCHERS


3.1 An outline of how purchasing works legally: When you Purchase a Voucher, there are several contracts relevant to your Purchase. First, there are the Sheldrakes Restaurant Ltd Site and Service Terms of Use of the Sheldrakes Restaurant Ltd website. This contract governs your use of the Sheldrakes Restaurant Ltd services (which are set out in the Sheldrakes Restaurant Ltd Site and Service Terms of Use, but include taking and processing payments made via the website, sending you administrative and marketing emails, etc.). Second, there is the Terms of Sale (this agreement!) which is your contract with Sheldrakes Restaurant Ltd to buy a Voucher which can be redeemed at our restaurant., there is the contract between the you and the Merchant (or Groupon Shop) who supplies the This contract is formed between you and Sheldrakes Restaurant Ltd to redeem your Voucher.

3.2 When a Voucher transaction is complete: When you go through the procedure for purchasing a Sheldrakes Seasonal Steal Voucher, after you have confirmed your acceptance of the Sheldrakes Restaurant Ltd Site and Service Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, and these Terms of Sale and after we have taken payment (by debit card or credit card or whatever), the transaction to Purchase a Sheldrakes Seasonal Steal Voucher is only complete (and a contract for Purchase is made) when we email you confirming the transaction. This email confirmation we send to you is our acceptance of the transaction; and it is at this point that a contract between you and us for the supply of a Voucher is created – which are these Terms of Sale. We keep a copy of the contract between us and we recommend that you print out these Terms of Sale for your own records.

3.3 Restrictions:

3.3.1. Reproduction, sale, resale or trade of a Voucher is prohibited. Any attempt to carry out any of these will potentially void the Voucher at our discretion.

3.7. Emails: As a condition of Purchase, we reserve the right to send you administrative emails, including information regarding your account activity and purchases, as well as updates about the Voucher you have Purchased. You can opt-out of many of these administrative emails via our subscription centre.

Any refund within those time limits will be a refund of the purchase price of the Voucher (payable back via your original method of payment). If you are outside of that time we are not obliged to give any refund for the Voucher.
