DELIVEROO TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE
If you have any questions relating to these terms and conditions please contact email@example.com before you place an order. If you do not accept these terms and conditions in full please do not use our Service.
1. INFORMATION ABOUT US
The Website is operated by Roofoods Limited, a company registered in England and Wales. Deliveroo Hong Kong Limited ("we" or "us" or "Deliveroo") is a company incorporated in Hong Kong and operating a business where the food is prepared by independent restaurants (our "Partner Restaurants") and delivered by us.
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. Deliveroo markets Meals on behalf of our Partner Restaurants, concludes orders on their behalf and delivers the Meals to you.
3. SERVICE AVAILABILITY
Deliveroo offers an ordering and delivery service from our Partner Restaurants in Hong Kong. Each Partner Restaurant has a prescribed delivery area. This is to ensure that their Meals reach your door when they are at their best. If you live outside the delivery areas, a message will appear on screen notifying you that ordering online will not be possible. We do not accept orders from individuals outside the delivery areas where we do not have a Partner Restaurant. Operating hours will vary depending on local trading conditions and the availability of our Partner Restaurants. Please click on the relevant link to view the menus on our Service, and then click on your chosen menu which will provide you with the option to submit your order to your chosen Partner Restaurant.
When you place an order through our Service, an email thanking you for your order and confirming your order has been received and accepted by the Partner Restaurant (the "Confirmation Email") 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 Email by us. 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. 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. Deliveroo 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. Please let us know if you have any comments relating to our Partner Restaurants or in respect of the Meals by emailing or calling us.
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. Deliveroo cannot guarantee that any of the Meals sold by our Partner Restaurants are free of allergens.
6. SALE OF ALCOHOL
Persons placing an order for alcohol from our Partner Restaurants must be aged 18 or over. Alcoholic beverages can only be sold and delivered to persons aged 18 or over. Deliveroo operates the Challenge 25 age verification policy whereby customers who are lucky enough not to look 25 or over, will be asked to provide proof of age to show that they are aged 18 or over. By placing an order that includes alcohol, you confirm that you are at least 18 years old. Deliveroo reserves the right to refuse to deliver any alcohol to any person who does not appear, or cannot prove they are, aged 18 or over. Deliveroo also reserves the right to refuse to deliver any alcohol to any person who is, or appears to be, under the influence of either alcohol or drugs.
7. AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY
Our aim is to provide the best delivery service possible. Unfortunately things do not always go to plan and factors, such as traffic conditions and weather, 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 email and webpage. The timing of your order is determined by taking into account 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. A Partner Restaurant will classify a bad order as any order which is cancelled after food has been used to start preparing the order (a "Started Order"). Customers can cancel an order by contacting the Partner Restaurant. Deliveroo 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 Deliveroo or a Partner Restaurant will be reimbursed usually using the same method you used to pay for your order. Any order cancelled after it becomes a Started Order will be charged to you. For the purposes of this Clause, Deliveroo alone will determine whether an order is a Started Order or not.
9. PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of any Meals will be listed on our Service. Prices will vary between menus. Prices posted on the Website are liable to change at any time, please confirm the latest prices available on the Website before you make an order, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which you have been presented with the Confirmation Email.
Despite our best efforts, some of the Meals listed on our Service may be incorrectly priced and in the case of an obvious pricing mistake, whereby we will notify you as soon as we can about the pricing issue, you will be able to cancel your order once we notify you of a pricing mistake. 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 Deliveroo and is subsequently passed on by Deliveroo 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.
10. OUR LIABILITY
To the extent permitted by law, Deliveroo provides our Service and content on an "as-is" and "as available" basis and we make no representation or warranty of any kind, express or implied, regarding the content or availability of our Service, or that it will be timely or error-free or that defects will be corrected.

In the event that Deliveroo 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. Nothing in this Clause shall operate so as to limit or exclude in any way Deliveroo's liability for any liability which cannot be excluded or limited by law, including liability for death or personal injury caused by negligence or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
11. EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
No party shall be liable to the other for any delay or non-performance of its obligations under these terms arising from any cause beyond its control including, without limitation, any of the following: act of God, governmental act, war, fire, flood, explosion or civil commotion. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in clause 11 shall excuse the Customer from any payment obligations under these terms.
No failure or delay by a party to exercise any right or remedy provided under these terms or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.
If any provision of these terms becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such modification is not possible, the relevant provision or part-provision shall be deemed deleted. Any modification to or deletion of a provision or part-provision under this Clause shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of these terms.
14. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
Each party acknowledges that in entering into these terms it has not relied upon any oral or written statements, collateral or other warranties, assurances, representations or undertakings which were made by or on behalf of the other party in relation to the subject-matter of these terms at any time before the date of these terms (together "Pre-Contractual Statements"), other than those which are set out in these terms.

Our Environmental Policy is to be a responsible corporate citizen in protecting the environment. We are committed to complying with accepted environmental practices, including the commitment to meet or exceed applicable legal and other requirements, to strive for continual improvement in our environmental management system, and to minimise the creation of waste and pollution. We will, therefore, manage our processes, our materials and our people in order to reduce the environmental impact on our work.
Deliveroo have set out the following main objectives:
- Reduce, reuse and recycle waste and packaging.
- Improve the efficiency of energy usage.
- Constantly review aspects, objectives and targets.
- Understand the requirements of customers, authorities and agencies.
The Company Environmental Policy forms the basis of Environmental Planning and the identification of environmental impacts with the organisation. However, it is acknowledged that where specifically requested by customers, and ascertained at contractual planning and agreement stage, additional requirements may be produced as required.
To confirm our commitment the Company management has developed a comprehensive policy statement appropriate to our operations as described below. This policy enables us to set objectives towards sustainable environmental improvement, which can be measured and monitored regularly and in turn contribute to the prevention of pollution and future protection of the environment
Due to the nature of our Company business, i.e. service industry and not manufacturing industry, we do not use toxic materials or substances in the carrying out of our business.
The Chief Executive has specific responsibility for policy development, co-ordination and evaluation of performance. Deliveroo is committed to minimising the impact of its operations on the environment by means of a programme of continual improvement.
In particular Deliveroo will:
- Ensure appropriate resources will continually be made to ensure the environmental policy is implemented in full.
- Discuss environmental issues with all employees, conduct training programmes and encourage best implementation practice by all Deliveroo personnel.
- Meet, and where appropriate, exceed the requirements of all relevant legislation. Where no regulations exist we shall set our own exacting standards.
- Work with suppliers to minimise the impact of their operations on the environment through a quality purchasing policy.
- Seek to reduce the following:
- Consumption of materials in all operations, reuse rather than dispose wherever possible and to promote recycled materials.
- Ensure all our vehicles are replaced at economic intervals and regularly undergo normal servicing where the key factor is the exhaust emission produced by these vehicles and also ensure they are well below the limits set by the Department of Transport.
- Noise, visual and other impacts on the local environment.
Regular review and monitoring of environmental performance will be actioned to ensure our environmental objectives and targets as described are maintained at all times.
Additionally this Environmental Policy Statement will be made available to all interested parties at all times.
Environmental Management Review Meetings
At intervals not exceeding six months an Environmental Management Review Meeting is held by each Branch Manager and relevant Company personnel.
The objectives of these meetings are primarily to:
- Review the environmental management system, to ensure its continuing suitability, adequacy and effectiveness.
- Ensure the requirements and objectives of the Company Environment Policy continue to be maintained.
- Sustain continuous improvement in overall environmental performances.
- Ensure compliance to all applicable legislation and other requirements.
The review meetings are held to a formal agenda and address the possible need for changes to policy, objectives and other elements of the environmental managements system.

The Company is committed to ensure that all personnel whose work may make an impact on the environment receive adequate and appropriate training.

Main elements of this training include the following:
- Identification of environmental requirements.
- Awareness of significant environmental impacts, which can be actual or potential, on their respective work activities.
- Awareness of and conformance to, the Company’s Environmental Management System.
- Awareness of potential consequences of departure from specified environmental operating procedure.
The Company establishes and maintains procedures for adequate communication, both internal and external, in relation to environmental issues, functions and documentation. Lines of communication are defined in applicable procedures.
All environmental records relevant to the Company’s Environmental Management System procedures and requirements are maintained, stored, identified, indexed and made readily retrievable.
The records are both identifiable and traceable to the activity, product or service involved.
The control of environmental records rests with Company personnel who have the responsibility for authority and verification.
