Please take note of your event date in your calendar, as Palate Sensations will not send you any reminder prior to the event.

6.

Unless expressly stated otherwise in these Terms and Conditions, all purchases or payments are non-exchangeable, non-refundable and non-transferable to another date or event. Palate Sensations will not offer refunds, transfers, change of dates or postponements should you be unable to attend any booked or confirmed event or, in the case of corporate or private events, after you have signed our Proposal to you, due to any unforeseen circumstances or any other reason whatsoever, except in Palate Sensations’ sole and absolute discretion. The next number is Number 8.

If in the reasonable opinion of a member of staff working for us you are not fit to attend an event, for example, if you appear to be under the influence of alcohol or likely to disturb or harm others at the event, the staff member may refuse to let you attend the event.

Additional terms and conditions for scheduled classes (including redeeming a gift voucher for scheduled classes)

 

10.

Fees for scheduled classes must be paid in advance with a credit card in order to secure your booking. Your booking is only confirmed once full payment has been received. Once your booking is confirmed, no refunds or transfers to another class will be given. Bookings are essential as class sizes are limited and Palate Sensations assumes financial and other commitments once a booking is made.

11.

If you are unable to attend an event, you are welcome to send a replacement. For those enrolled in an entire module of classes, if you are unable to attend a class, you should give at least 48 hours’ notice of such inability in which case you will be entitled to attend a make-up class (failure to give the required  notice will result in forfeiture of your make-up class). Make-up classes will be for the exact same class as the one missed (no changes to another type of class will be allowed) and may be scheduled within one year only of the class missed.

12.

In the unlikely event that a scheduled class does not reach the minimum number required for the class or due to unforeseen exceptional circumstances, Palate Sensations reserves the right to change the date of or cancel the class. If that occurs, a refund of any payment will be offered/given.

13.

Palate Sensations does not guarantee the availability of any class (whether for adults or children, or as advertised on the Website or through any other means) until your booking is confirmed, and where applicable, the required class size is reached.

Additional terms and conditions for corporate classes/private functions

 

14.

All events must be guaranteed by a 50% non-refundable deposit by credit card, telegraphic transfer (TT) or cheque once you have signed our Proposal to you.

15. The remainder of the fees for your event is payable by credit card, cash or cheque immediately at the conclusion of the event. There will be no credit terms under any circumstances.
16.

TT charges are borne by you while all credit card charges are absorbed by Palate Sensations.

Additional terms and conditions for gift vouchers

18. Gift vouchers are sold as vouchers only and are not redeemable for cash.

Voucher expiry dates cannot be changed under any circumstances. If you have purchased a voucher and are unable to redeem it for personal use, you are welcome to transfer the voucher to another person and confirm the person attending in your place.
