By booking and taking part in any activity within Belfast Cookery School you agree to abide by our terms and conditions.
Booking Terms & Conditions
Places are booked on a first-come-first-served basis upon receipt of payment validation. On booking and paying for a class(es) you will receive a booking and payment confirmation by email. The acknowledgement or processing of an order or quote does not constitute legal acceptance of your order or quote.
Confirmed bookings may not be cancelled in any circumstances. Bookings are, however, freely transferable to another person for the same class or to another scheduled class. Transfer requests must be received by Belfast Cookery School no less than 7 working days before the original session. Please notify us of any change in the contact details provided as these will be used by Belfast Cookery School for all correspondence.
The school may need to change advertised menus, dependant on the availability of ingredients. Any changes will be advised by email prior to the classes start time.
Confirmed private bookings may not be cancelled under any circumstances. We reserve the right to withhold any security deposits to cover any costs incurred by Belfast Cookery School. If a confirmed private event is cancelled 14 days or before it is scheduled to commence, Belfast Cookery School reserves the right to bill the party/organiser 40% of the total cost of the event.
Children under the age of 18 will not be permitted into any session unless this has been expressly stated within a specific class synopsis. While the inclusion of minors maybe allowed in certain sessions, this is at the digression of The School and permission must be granted to the interested party before they carry out their purchase.
Belfast Cookery School reserves the right not to issue any refunds for places bought for children without the permission of The School before the purchase has been made.
At any time all children must be chaperoned by an adult and we accept no liability for any injury caused to the minor. It is the responsibility of the accompanying adult to safeguard a childs safety, and conduct any tasks which would be regarded as unsafe for children to carry out e.g. Knifework or dealing with hot liquids.
Belfast Cookery School will not accept responsibility for the loss of any personal possessions. In the rare event BCS has to cancel or postpone a class due to unavoidable circumstances we will notify all confirmed attendees. Where 2 weeks or more notice is provided we will supply a credit note for the booking. Any less will be returned by card or BACs transfer. BCS will not be held liable for any indirect costs the participant may have incurred because of any change.
BCS will not be liable for any loss suffered resulting from any event which is beyond the reasonable control of Belfast Cookery School. No failure or delay by Belfast Cookery School in enforcing any of its rights under the Contract shall be deemed to be a waiver of such right.
