2. HOW TO MAKE AN ORDER AND HOW IT IS PROCESSED
2.1 Once you have selected the Products you wish to order of your chosen Restaurant and provided the other required information, you will be given the opportunity to submit your order by clicking or selecting the "proceed", "place my order" or similar button. It is important that you check all the information that you enter and correct any errors before clicking or selecting that button; once you do so we will start processing your Order and errors cannot be corrected.
2.2 Once you have submitted your Order and your payment has been authorised, you will not be entitled to change or cancel your Order, nor will you be entitled to a refund unless otherwise specified in “5. REFUNDS”.
2.3 Where any payment you make is not authorised, your Order will not be processed.
2.5 Once you have receipt the confirmation of the Order you may collect the Product(s) from the relevant Restaurant at the date and time specified in the Order confirmation.
2.6 Meals purchased through the Site are strictly only available in accordance with the order details confirmed on the Order receipt sent to you by email. You must collect the ordered portion quantity from the specified Restaurant with the correct address at the stated date and time. It is your responsibility to ensure that you process this information accurately and BuffetGo shall not be held liable to refund any errors in this context, for example if you travel to a restaurant of the same name but different address to that confirmed on the Order receipt. Further, BuffetGo is not liable to refund you should you arrive after the specified and agreed time to collect your Order and find the buffet closed, nor are we responsible for any circumstances which may have caused you to arrive late.
2.7 Neither BuffetGo nor its participating Restaurant are under any obligation to provide food receptacles or containers for the customer’s usage. Although take-away boxes are typically available from most participating Restaurants, Customers should take their own containers.
2.8 Customers promise and guarantee only to pack and take away the quantity of food as specified in the Order confirmation they received from BuffetGo. Restaurants may independently and reasonably deal with any abuse/exploitation/mistreatment of the Service and BuffetGo shall not be held liable for any problems that may arise from a Customer acting in such a manner, including but not limited to being asked to leave Restaurant property and/or prevented from returning to that premises in the future.
2.9 BuffetGo is available exclusively online through the Site. The Product is by its nature limited in quantity and we therefore cannot guarantee that every Restaurant listed will always have the Product available to be ordered via the Site (/in stock). Where this is the case, and the Restaurant has reached its order limit for a specific day’s service, a product will be unavailable for order. In the unlikely event that an order is processed and paid for and the Restaurant has run out of food then you will be entitled to a refund (as set out in 5. REFUNDS).
2.10 On collection, Customers agree to take the Product away from the Restaurant and not consume or begin consuming the meal whilst on the Restaurant’s premises.
2.11 We reserve the right but are not obligated (i) to limit or cancel the quantities of any Products or Services offered via the Site; (ii) to refuse any order you place with us and (iii) to limit the sales of the Products or Services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.
2.12 We do not warrant that the quality of any Products, Services, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you will meet your expectations, or that any errors in the Service will be corrected.

3.7 You are not allowed to use any of the materials on the Site or the Site itself for commercial purposes without obtaining a licence from us to do so.
3.7 A breach or violation of any of these Terms will result in an immediate termination of your use of the Services.
4. PRICES AND PAYMENT
4.1 Prices will be as quoted on the Site in US dollars. These prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs as you need to collect the Product by yourself.
4.2 Product prices are subject to change at any time without notice, at the sole discretion of us. We further reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue the Service (or any part or content thereof) without notice. We shall not be liable to you or to any third-party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
4.3. It is possible although very unlikely that some of the Products may include incorrect prices. In such an event, neither we nor the relevant Restaurant is under any obligation to ensure that the Order is provided to you at the incorrect lower price or to compensate you in respect of incorrect pricing.
4.4. Payment for Orders must be made by an accepted credit or debit card through the Site prior to the Product being collected.
4.5. 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.
4.6. Because of standard banking procedures, once you have submitted an Order that you are paying for by credit or debit card and your payment has been authorised, your bank or card issuer will "ring-fence" the full amount of your Order. If your Order is subsequently cancelled for any reason, your bank or card issuer will not transfer the funds for the Order to us, and will instead release the relevant amount back into your available balance. 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 Restaurant 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.
5.1 If you are a new Customer, as part of the ‘First Meal Free’ promotion you are entitled to a full refund of the first meal you purchase through the BuffetGo website. The refund will be automatically issued to you (you don’t need to do anything) within three working days of your initial purchase.
5.2 In the unlikely event of you arriving at the Restaurant at the allocated time slot (as stated in the information section for that Restaurant and also in the system-generated email you receive upon placing your order) to find that there is no food available, BuffetGo will refund you the full amount of your Order. Should this be the case, please email your refund request to email@example.com stating the Order number, the name and address of the Restaurant and the time of your visit. BuffetGo will then verify your enquiry with the Restaurant and notify you of any refund due by email before refunding the amount paid via the payment method used to make the initial purchase.
5.3 There are no other circumstances under which a payment made by the customer to BuffetGo will be refunded to the customer by BuffetGo.
