Physical Products - Creating a Contract

These are the steps required to create a contract between you and Vaughan's Kitchen Cookery School:

  • You place an order for your booking / products on Vaughan's Cookery School website by submitting your order at the end of the checkout process. 
  • When using the online shop, you will receive an order acknowledgement email with a transaction ID, detailing the products you have ordered. This is an automated service from Shopify, not an order confirmation or order acceptance from Vaughan's Cookery School.
  • Order acceptance and the completion of the contract between you and Vaughan's Cookery School will take place on the despatch to you of the products ordered, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order (or part of your order). You will be refunded for items which are not despatched to you.

The reasons for non-acceptance of an order by Vaughan's Cookery School may be a result of one of the following:

  • The product you ordered being unavailable from stock; or
  • Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment; or
  • The identification of a pricing or product description error.

Payment will be deducted from your account when we receive the order. Any returns can be sent to us by post and the same account will be credited once we have established that the condition of your returned items meet our criteria (see Refunds, below).
