honestbee FOOD is a delivery platform that allows users to purchase meals, food items, beverages, and other related products (“Meals”) from their merchants of choice, where the food is prepared by independent restaurants (our "Partner Restaurants") and delivered by deliverers sourced by honestbee (the “Deliverers”).
The purpose of our Service is to provide a simple and convenient service to you, linking you to the Partner Restaurant and menu of their choice and allowing you to order Meals from them. We market Meals on behalf of our Partner Restaurants, conclude orders on their behalf and source for Deliverers to deliver the Meals to you.
honestbee FOOD can only be accessed by you via the honestbee mobile application (the “App”). All orders, payments, and all actions related to the foregoing can only be accessed via the App.
When you place an order through our Service, you will receive a notification from the App (an “App Notification”) thanking you for your order and confirming your order has been received and accepted by the Partner Restaurant (the “Confirmation App Notification”) will be sent to you by us on behalf of the Partner Restaurant.
The contract for the supply of any Meal you order through us will be between you and the Partner Restaurant and will only be formed when you have been sent the Confirmation App Notification by us.
Upon your receipt of the Confirmation App Notification, the vendor would have commenced preparation of the Meal (your “Started Order”).
Please ensure that you have given us a correct email address as this is how we will communicate with you about your order.
Please also ensure that you provide an accurate address and telephone number to ensure that your Meals arrive to the correct location. It is your responsibility to ensure that the address that you have provided in the App is accurate.
If you do not open the door or respond to telephonic correspondence within 10 minutes of our delivery drivers physically reaching your address, we reserve the right to leave the premises, and you will be charged for the Meal. For hygiene and food safety reasons, we are unable to leave the Meal at your designated address without someone collecting the Meal.
honestbee seeks to provide a quality service and will be the first contact in event in there is a problem with your Meal either in regards to food quality and/or temperature. We do monitor our Partner Restaurants very closely and it is of utmost importance to us that they comply with our standards and help us to maintain our reputation.
You recognise that all Meals are subject to availability. Your Partner Restaurant may offer an alternative for any Meal it cannot provide you with.
Our Partner Restaurants may use nuts in the preparation of certain Meals. Please call our Partner Restaurant prior to ordering if you have an allergy. We make no guarantee that any of the Meals sold by our Partner Restaurants are free of allergens.
Sale of Alcohol
If the Meal includes alcoholic drinks or any other age-restricted items, you agree to ensure that a person of 18 years of age or older with appropriate identification is present to take delivery of the alcoholic drinks or other items.
We reserve the right not to deliver any age-restricted product to anyone who is, or appears to be under, or is unable to prove that he or she is aged 18 or over. In such a situation, we reserve the right to withhold the Meal or the age-restricted product from you (as the case may be), and to still charge you for the full purchase price of your Meal.
Availability and Delivery
Our aim is to provide the best delivery service possible. Unfortunately, things such as traffic conditions and weather do not always go to plan. Such factors may occasionally prevent us from achieving our targets in this regard. We will do our best to ensure that your Meal is delivered by the time specified in the App. The timing of your order is determined by amongst other things, the number of orders and the circumstances being faced by the Partner Restaurant at that time.
You have the right to cancel an order within a reasonable time and before the order becomes a Started Order, upon which you would be unable to do so. Any order cancelled after it becomes a Started Order will be charged to you.
honestbee and the Partner Restaurant may cancel any order and will tell you once we cancel an order. You will not be charged for any orders cancelled in accordance with this clause. Any payment made prior to an order being cancelled by honestbee or a Partner Restaurant will usually be reimbursed using the same method you used to pay for your order.
You acknowledge and agree that honestbee alone will determine whether an order is a Started Order or not.
Price And Payment
The price of any Meals will be listed on our App. Prices include GST. Prices will vary between menus. Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which you have been presented with the Confirmation Email, save in the case of an obvious pricing mistake, whereby we will notify you as soon as we can about the pricing issue. Upon such notification, you may be allowed to cancel your order.
Despite our best efforts, some of the Meals listed on our Service may be incorrectly priced. The relevant Partner Restaurant will normally verify prices as part of the order process. Payment for all Meals can be made by credit or debit card through our Service. Once your order has been confirmed your credit or debit card will have been authorised and the amount marked for payment. Payment is made directly to honestbee and is subsequently passed on by honestbee to the Partner Restaurant. We are authorised by our Partner Restaurants 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 Partner Restaurant.
Subject as provided below, neither honestbee nor any Partner Restaurant shall have any liability to you for any direct, indirect, special or consequential losses or damages arising in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise arising from your use of or your inability to use our Service. In the event honestbee or the Partner Restaurant is found to be liable to you our total aggregate liability is limited to the purchase price of the Meals you have paid for in your order.
