3.1.1. You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and
3.1.2. You are at least 18 years old.
- HOW TO MAKE AN ORDER AND HOW IT IS PROCESSED
4.1. Compiling your Order: Once you have selected the Products you wish to order from heatmyhome.ie 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 are aware additional delivery fees can be applied at this point due to distance of delivery. You must correct any errors before clicking or selecting this button; once you do so we will start processing your Order and errors cannot be corrected.
4.2. Amending or cancelling your Order: 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 (please refer to paragraph 4.4 for details of the process relating to rejected Orders). If you wish to change or cancel your Order, you may contact our Customer Care team as described in paragraph 6.3 and they will attempt to contact our Supplier in order to communicate your requests. However, there is no guarantee that we will be able to reach our Supplier or that they will agree to the requests as they may have already started processing your Order.
4.3. Payment authorisation: Where any payment you make is not authorised, your Order will not be processed or communicated to the relevant Supplier.
4.4. Processing your Order and Supplier rejections: On receipt of your Order, we will begin processing it by sending it to the relevant Supplier and will notify you by email that your Order has been received and is being processed. Please note that any confirmation page that you may see on the Website and any Order confirmation e-mail that you may receive each merely indicate that your Order has been received and is being processed by us, and does not necessarily mean that your Order has been accepted by the Supplier. We encourage all our Suppliers to accept all Orders and to communicate any rejection promptly, and we will notify you (generally by email) as soon as reasonably practicable if a Supplier rejects your Order. However, Suppliers have the discretion to reject Orders at any time because they are too busy, due to weather conditions or for any other reason.
4.5. Delivery of your Order: Estimated times for deliveries and collections are provided by the Supplier and are only estimates. Neither we nor the supplier guarantee that Orders will be delivered or will be available for collection within the estimated times.
4.5. Suppliers Terms & Conditions: When an Order is placed with heatmyhome.ie the Supplier’s Delivery Policy and Terms & Conditions also apply.
- PRICE AND PAYMENT
5.1. VAT and delivery costs: Prices will be as quoted on the Website. These prices include VAT but may exclude delivery costs and any online payment administration charges (if you pay for your Order online). These will be added to the total amount due where applicable.
5.2. Incorrect pricing: This Website contains a large number of Suppliers and it is possible that some of the prodcuts may include incorrect prices. If the correct price for an Order is higher than the price stated on the Website, we will normally contact you before the relevant Order is dispatched to notify you of the updated price and to confirm whether you wish to cancel or proceed with the Order. In such an event, neither we nor our relevant supplier 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.
5.3. Payment methods: Payment for Orders must be made by an accepted credit or debit card through the Website or in cash to the Restaurant at the point of delivery to you.
5.4. Card payments: If you pay by credit or debit card, you may be required to show the card to the Supplier at the time of delivery as proof of identification and so that they can check that the card conforms with the receipt data for the Order. 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.
5.5. Rejected Orders: 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 rejected by the Restaurant (as described in paragraph 4.4 above) or cancelled for any other 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 up to 10 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.
- CUSTOMER CARE

Changing or cancelling your Order: If you wish to change or cancel your Order after it has been submitted and payment has been authorised, you may contact our Customer Care team as described above and they will attempt to contact the Supplier in order to communicate your requests.

6.4. Complaints or feedback: In the event that you are dissatisfied with the quality of any Products or the service provided by a Supplier, please consider providing feedback in the form of ratings, comments and reviews on the Website (together, “Reviews”) to reflect your experience.
