Subject to these Terms, you may place an Order for Products using the Site.
If you make an Order, you:
agree to pay the price of the Products and the applicable delivery fee;
warrant to us that all information provided by you in relation to that Order is accurate, complete and current; and
warrant to us that the Products in your Order are intended for personal, domestic or household use only and are not intended for commercial use (including commercial re-sale).
We will not be liable to you for any loss you or any third party suffers or incurs as a result of, or in connection with, any delay or failure to process your Order or to deliver any Products to you due to inaccurate or incomplete details provided in an Order.
If you place an Order and the Products are to be delivered to someone other than you, you warrant to us that you have obtained that person’s consent to provide us with their personal information and that they agree to accept delivery of the Products.
You acknowledge and agree that each Order that you make, if accepted by us, is a separate and binding agreement between you and us for the supply and delivery of the Products the subject of the Order in accordance with these Terms.
If we accept your Order, we will send a confirmation email to your nominated email address.
If you request we change or cancel your Order due to your change of mind in accordance with these Terms (see clause 13), we will use our reasonable endeavours to cancel or change that Order if it has not already been shipped, but we make no representation that we will be able to do this.
We may at our sole discretion cancel your Order at any time prior to shipping of the Products.
If we cancel your Order, we will send a confirmation email to your nominated email address. If this occurs, you will be provided with a full refund of the purchase price of the Order.
Products and prices of Products are listed on the Site and are subject to change at our sole discretion.
Prices for Products and delivery fees for Orders are listed on the Site and, unless otherwise specified, are in AUD Dollars.
Prices for Products in an Order and the delivery fee for that Order are fixed once an Order has been confirmed.
Discounts to the prices of Products may be given at our sole discretion on terms and conditions notified to you by us.
Acceptable payment methods are listed on the Site and are subject to change at our sole discretion.
Your Order must include details of your nominated payment method. If the name included in connection with the Order does not match the name included in your nominated payment method, we may ask you to provide to us additional information (for example, proof of identity documents). By providing details of your nominated payment method with your Order, you authorise us to deduct the price of the Products and the delivery fee for that Order from your nominated payment method.
If we accept your Order, we will process payment for your Order then or shortly thereafter.
You acknowledge and agree that we may not be able to or may decline in our reasonable discretion to accept payment from you by your nominated payment method. We will notify you if this occurs.
If you request a change of your Order after we have accepted the Order, we will charge or refund you in full (to the payment method you used to make the Order) the difference (if any) between your initial Order and your amended Order.
If you elect to cancel an Order due to change of mind after we have accepted the Order, we will refund you in full (to the payment method you used to make the Order) the value of that Order.
We will not ship the Products in your Order unless we have accepted your Order and we have received payment in full for that Order from your nominated payment method.
CookDineHost gift cards can be purchased on this Site in Australia only. They will be sent to your nominated email address once the full Order for the gift card(s) has been processed and payment has been made.
Gift cards can be redeemed against all Products on this Site. If your Order total exceeds the value of the gift card, the excess amount must be paid via an alternative payment method nominated by you. If your Order total is less than the value of the gift card, the remaining balance will be stored on the gift card and can be redeemed against subsequent Orders during the validity period of the gift card.
Gift cards are non-transferable, non-returnable and cannot be redeemed for cash.
Subject at all times to your rights under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL), if you return Product(s) you have purchased using a gift card (in respect of the full purchase amount or part of the purchase amount), the applicable purchase value will be applied as store credit to any account you have set up with the same email address used to Order your Product(s). If you do not have an account, the value will be applied to a gift card that will be sent to the email address used to Order your Product(s). The store credit or gift card can be redeemed against subsequent Orders within the validity period of the original gift card used to Order the Product(s). This clause does not exclude, restrict or modify your rights under the Australian Consumer Law.
Gift cards are valid for three years from the date of purchase unless otherwise required at law. Any unredeemed balance that remains on the gift card after the three year validity period will not be refunded or credited.
CookDineHost is not responsible for and will not replace any gift cards that are lost, stolen, damaged, or used without permission.
CookDineHost reserves the right to cancel a gift card if we deem such action necessary in order to protect our legitimate interests (for example, in the event of a security breach). The value of the gift card at the time of cancellation will be refunded to you or issued as store credit.
If we have received payment in full for your Order, we will deliver your Order to you in a timely manner.
Following delivery of your Order, we will send a confirmation email and invoice for your Order to your nominated email address.
You acknowledge and agree that the delivery of your Products may be delayed due to reasons beyond our control and, except to the extent caused by us and otherwise to the maximum extent permitted by the law, we will not be liable for and you forever release and discharge us from any claims you may have against us for any direct, indirect, special, consequential or other damages that result from, are connected with, arise out of, or are incidental to that delay.
If you have provided us with an incorrect or incomplete delivery address for your Order or your Order is otherwise returned to us, we may charge you a delivery fee for each subsequent delivery attempt.
Title and risk in the Products passes to you at the time of delivery of the Products to your nominated delivery address.
If you Order Products from outside Australia, your Order may be subject to import duties, fees and taxes, which are determined once your shipment reaches your country and are payable by you. You may also be required to pay additional customs clearance charges. CookDineHost is not liable for such import duties, fees, taxes or charges. In addition, Orders shipped internationally may be subject to customs clearance procedures that can cause delays beyond our control. If you choose to refuse a shipment from CookDineHost due to change of mind you will remain responsible for the original shipping charges, duties, fees, taxes and / or customs charges incurred, and the cost of return shipping.
The ACL provides you with rights in respect of your Order and the Products the subject of the Order that cannot be excluded by these Terms, including that your Products must be of acceptable quality, reasonably fit for the purpose that we represent they will be fit for, and that the Products will correspond with any relevant description.
Nothing in these Terms shall be read or applied so as to exclude, restrict or modify or have the effect of excluding, restricting or modifying any condition, warranty, guarantee, right or remedy under the ACL, which cannot by law be excluded, restricted or modified.
If you believe you are entitled to a repair, replacement or refund of a Product or a store credit in relation to the value of a Product please notify us via email at email@example.com. In the email, please specify the following information:
contact details where relevant, such as address and phone number;
a description of the Product that you believe you are entitled to have exchanged or refunded and the reason for this; and
details of the relevant Order, including your Order number and an invoice for that Order.
In relation to Products that are faulty, defective, unsafe, or which fail to comply with a consumer guarantee, we will comply with our obligations under the ACL. Note that Products are subject to the specified warranty periods and will not be repaired, replaced or refunded after these warranty periods elapse. CookDineHost reserves the right to refuse a warranty replacement should a defect not be deemed genuine, or if it falls outside the nominated warranty period.
Warranty periods are determined by the nature of the product and the type of usage it is expected to withstand. Items expected to come under more strain and to be used more frequently than others have shorter warranty periods to reflect this.
For more information on our warranty periods, see our Shipping & Returns page.
In relation to change of mind, we do not accept the return of products, based on change of mind or incorrect choices on the original order.
Refunds are only eligible for damaged products, including cookbooks, caused by third party carriers. Requests for reimbursement must be made within 7 days from the day the package is marked as delivered. Our team will review this case by case, please contact us via the contact us form with pictures for evidence. Please note that reimbursement can only be made if the evidence is provided.

To the maximum extent permitted by law and subject to your rights under the ACL, you acknowledge and agree we will not be liable for and you forever release and discharge us from any claims that you have now or may have against us for any direct, indirect, special, consequential or other damages that result from, are connected with, arise out of, or are incidental to:
your access or use of, or your inability to access or use this Site, part of this Site or any other website, including viruses or other malicious computer code, unauthorised use of your user information, or the accuracy, completeness, suitability or currency of any Content; or

Any provision of these Terms which is void or unenforceable may be severed from these Terms without affecting the enforceability of the other provisions.
Any failure or delay by us to enforce or exercise a power or right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of those right(s), power(s) or provision(s), and the exercise of a power or right by us does not preclude our ability to exercise that or any other power or right in the future.
We reserve the right at our sole discretion to amend these Terms at any time. You should visit the Site periodically to review these Terms.
