4. HOW TO MAKE AN ORDER OR TABLE BOOKING REQUEST AND HOW IT IS PROCESSED
4.1. Compiling and submitting your Order: Once you have selected the Products you wish to order from the menu on the Website and provided the other required information, you will be given the opportunity to submit your Order by clicking or selecting the "Complete Order", "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 this button; once you do so we will start processing your Order and errors cannot be corrected. By completing and submitting the electronic order form you are making an offer to purchase Products which, if accepted by us, will result in a binding contract between you and The Forth Mole Limited.
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 us directly to communicate your request. However, there is no guarantee that we will be able to agree to your requests as the kitchen may have already started processing your Order.
4.3. Payment authorisation: Where any online payment you make is not authorised, your Order will not be processed or communicated to us.
4.4. Processing your Order and Restaurant rejections: On receipt of your Order, we will begin processing it 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 email 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 us. We will notify you (generally by email) as soon as reasonably practicable if we need to reject your Order. However, we have the discretion to reject Orders at any time because we 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 us and are only estimates. We do not guarantee that Orders will be delivered or will be available for collection within the estimated times.
5. PRICE AND PAYMENT
5.1. VAT and other charges: Prices per item will be as quoted on the Website. These prices include VAT except where indicated. Prices per item exclude any delivery costs (if you opt for delivery instead of collection) and any service charges imposed by us. These will be added to the total amount due where applicable.
5.2. Incorrect pricing: It is possible that some of the Products listed 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. In such an event, we are not 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 at the point of delivery to you. Card payments will be listed on your account as going to The Three Moles.
5.4. Card payments: If you pay by credit or debit card, you may be required to show the card to us at the time of delivery as proof of identification and so that we 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. Credit and discount vouchers: A credit or discount may apply to your Order if you use a promotional voucher or code recognised by the Website and endorsed by The Three Moles, and you pay for any balance by credit or debit card. Please note that because of standard banking procedures, your bank or card issuer will initially "ring-fence" the full amount of the Order (before any credit or discount) in your account for between 3 to 5 working days (or longer, depending on your bank or card issuer), and this amount will therefore be unavailable in your account for that period. The credit or discount will be applied at the time your bank or card issuer transfers the funds for your Order to us, at which point the credit or discounted amount will not be transferred to us and will instead be released by your bank or card issuer back into your available balance. You acknowledge and agree that we will not 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.
5.6. 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 between 3 to 5 working days (or longer, depending on your bank or card issuer). You acknowledge and agree that we will not 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.
5.7 Discount voucher codes and voucher code URLs: We shall not be liable to any customer or household for any loss or claim arising out of the refusal, rejection, cancellation or withdrawal of any Voucher or any failure or inability of a customer or household to use a Voucher for any reason. We reserve the right, at any time and in our sole discretion, to add to or amend these terms and conditions in relation to the use of Vouchers or to vary or terminate the operation of a Voucher at any time without notice. Vouchers may not be exchanged for cash.

6.3. 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 us directly.
