1. INFORMATION ABOUT US

Buymie.eu is a website operated by Buymie Technologies UnLimited ("we" or "us" or "Buymie"), incorporated and registered in Ireland, whose registered office is at 46- 50 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2, Ireland. Our Company registration number is 567895. Our VAT number is IE3383041JH.

2. PURPOSE

Buymie is a mobile communication platform which facilitates the connection between individuals ("Customer[s]") seeking to order food, beverage, home essential products and other items ("Products") from selected retail stores ("Supported Store[s]"), and individuals seeking to assist Customers by picking and delivering the Products to and on behalf of Customers who have authorised the purchase of such Products ("Personal Shoppers[s]") (such service provided by Personal Shoppers to be hereinafter referred to as "Personal Shopper Service").

Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Personal Shopper acts as the agent of the Customer in carrying out the Personal Shopper Service, and that Buymie has no relationship with Customer other than to provide the communication platform between Personal Shoppers and Customers. Buymie does not have control over the quality, timing, legality, failure to provide or any other aspect whatsoever of the Personal Shopper Service.

3. AVAILABILITY

Buymie facilitates an ordering, retrieving and delivery Platform from certain stores throughout locations in Ireland. Based on your geographic location our fulfilment engine will connect you to the closest store within your postcode and with a Personal Shopper. If you live outside the delivery areas, a message will appear on screen notifying you that ordering will not be possible. We do not accept orders from individuals in a postcode in which we do not have at least one store supported by our platform ("Supported Store[s]"). Operating hours will vary depending on local trading conditions and the availability of our Supported Stores.

4. ORDERS

When you place an order through our Platform, an email and push notification will be sent to you by Buymie on behalf of the Personal Shopper on your mobile device, thanking you for your order and confirming your order has been received and accepted by the Personal Shopper (the "Confirmation Email/Message"). Please note this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer made by you to buy a product. The contract will only be accepted and formed when the goods have been delivered to you.

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 order arrive to the correct location. If you do not open the door or answer your phone within 15 minutes of our Personal Shopper reaching your address, we reserve the right to leave the premises, and you will be charged a cancellation fee of €15.

Buymie seeks to provide a quality Platform and will be the first contact in the event there is a problem with your order, including in regards to food quality, or unavailable products. You are entitled to receive the food, beverage, home essential products and other Products that you have ordered (subject to availability), provided that, where you have selected the "Shopper substitute for me" option in your “Substitution preferences”, you agree that the Personal Shopper may use their discretion to pick and purchase substitute products in place of any products which are unavailable in-store ("Substitute Products").

You acknowledge and agree that such Substitute Product(s) may be more or less expensive than the product(s) which is/are unavailable in-store. If you have selected the "Shopper contact me" option in your “Substitution preferences”, the Personal Shopper will attempt to contact you by telephone to agree a Substitute Product with you. In this scenario, if the Personal Shopper is unable to make contact with you, the product will be removed from your shopping list. If you have selected the "Shopper substitute for me" option but your selected product or a Substitute Product is not available, the selected product will be removed from your shopping list. It is of utmost importance to us that they comply with our standards and help us to maintain our quality of service. Please let us know if you have any comments relating to our Personal Shoppers or in respect of the order by emailing support@buymie.eu.

All orders made by you are subject to stock availability. Buymie reserves the right to cancel, amend or reject your order in whole or in part, at any time and without liability or compensation, where any product is out of stock, damaged or spoilt, or unavailable for any other reason. When an order for any product(s) is rejected or cancelled by Buymie, any payment made for such order shall be reversed or refunded by Buymie in accordance with our prevailing refund policy at such time.

We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same debit/credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address.

We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made.

You agree to provide current, complete and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made at our store. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your contact telephone number (mobile and/or landline), email address and debit/credit card numbers and expiration dates, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed.

5. ALLERGEN INFORMATION

Buymie cannot guarantee that any of the food items sold by Supported Stores are free of allergens. Supported Stores and their suppliers are exclusively responsible for all information regarding the contents of products, including (but not limited to) food labelling information and information regarding allergens. It is your responsibility to review the allergen notice on each product.

6. SALE OF ALCOHOL

A person receiving a delivery containing alcohol or other restricted items must be over 18. It is your responsibility to ensure that a suitable person is at the delivery point to receive the order. If the person receiving delivery of alcohol or other restricted item looks under 23, we will request identification. We may retain alcohol or other restricted products if proof of age is not adequate and there is no alternative person to receive the delivery. In cases where we need to return alcohol products not due to your failure to comply with our policy on sale and delivery of alcohol products, we reserve the right to charge a return fee.

Buymie reserves the right to prevent customers from being able to choose alcoholic products and same day delivery, or postpone the delivery (e.g. the next day) until those hours when sale of alcohol is permitted by law.

7. AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY

Our aim is to facilitate the best and convenient delivery Platform between you and the Personal Shopper and we will do our best to ensure that your order is delivered within the delivery slot you paid for. While it is our priority to deliver your goods within your chosen slot, any guarantees or representations made as to delivery times are subject to potential delays resulting from, for example, adverse weather conditions or other events outside of our reasonable control for which we will not be responsible.

8. CANCELLATION

You have a statutory right to cancel your contract with us (whether in full or in respect of an individual item or items) at any time, for any reason, until the expiry of the 14th day after the date of delivery. This does not extend to goods which are liable to expire or deteriorate rapidly (perishable goods), or goods which have been unsealed and are unsuitable for return for health protection and hygiene reasons. In order to exercise this right, please inform us by filling out this form and returning it to us, or email us via support@buymie.eu.

On the exercise of this right, we will communicate to you an acknowledgement of receipt of your cancellation and we will outline further steps for you to take. Please note that we may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back, or until you supply evidence that you have sent the goods back.

You will be responsible for any extra cost incurred or risk in returning products. You are obliged to take reasonable care of the products while they are in your possession and you will be responsible for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling of the goods beyond that necessary to establish their nature, characteristics and functioning.

9. PRICE AND PAYMENT

All Products purchased through our Platform are subject to availability. All individual item prices displayed in the app, are estimated, as price differences can occur when the in store price is higher or lower than the price listed on the Platform, and/or if a Substitute Product commands a higher or lower price, so your cart total is an estimated amount only. Individual item prices displayed are exclusive of a buymie service fee. We apply a delivery fee, platform fee, and in certain circumstances, a small basket fee.

A pre-authorised hold will be placed on your payment card for the estimated order value plus a little extra to cover any price difference.

After the delivery of the order, the final order value will be charged to your payment card and any difference in amount from the pre-authorised hold will be released back to your payment card. Depending on the bank, it can take 3-5 business days for the pre-authorised hold to be released.

If the final order value is greater than the pre-authorised hold on your account, your payment card will be charged a second time for the remaining amount. Your final order value will be confirmed to you upon delivery, when the Personal Shopper has completed payment for your order in-store, and your payment card will be charged with the final amount.

A receipt for your order will be provided through the Delivery Confirmation email as well as in the “My Orders” section of the Buymie app. Payment is made directly to Buymie to cover the cost of the Products purchased, as well as the Buymie service and delivery fees. We accept payment for orders by Visa and Mastercard, Google Pay and Apple Pay.

Buymie’s minimum basket size is €30. A €3 small basket fee will apply for basket sizes between €30 to €40 on all orders for all users.

Any outstanding balance on the Customer’s account must be paid before placing a new order. Outstanding Balance charges will not be refunded if an order is cancelled.

Buymie endeavours to provide you with accurate and up-to-date pricing, product and promotional information. However, we do not guarantee that the pricing, images or other product or promotional information provided will be error-free, updated or complete. Buymie shall not be liable for any errors in the pricing and product or promotional information listed on our Platform.

By confirming your purchase, you authorise Buymie to charge you. If you elect to cancel the purchase or remove items from your basket, we will refund you for the order or such items as you remove in accordance with our prevailing refund policy at such time and you may be subject to a cancellation fee of €15 after your order has been accepted by a Personal Shopper.

Where the actual price of any product is dependent on its weight ("Weighed Item"), we will provide an estimate of the price based on indicated weight and our current prevailing rates at the time of checkout. The actual weight and related price of the Weighed Item will be made known to you at the time of delivery.

By placing your order, you authorise Buymie to transmit information or to obtain information about you from third parties from time to time and this may include verification checks involving your debit or credit card number or credit reports in order to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit card, to obtain an initial credit card authorization, to protect you and us from fraud, and to enable us to arrange delivery of your order to your nominated delivery address. Where information is not matching or concerns are raised, additional measures may be taken to confirm your identity.

10. BUYMIE PLUS

Free trial eligibility is determined by Buymie at its sole discretion and we may limit eligibility or duration to prevent free trial abuse. We reserve the right to revoke the free trial and put your account on hold in the event that we determine that you are not eligible.

We will charge the membership fee for the next billing cycle to your Payment Method at the end of the free trial period unless you cancel your membership prior to the end of the free trial period.

The Buymie Plus fee will be charged to your Payment Method on the specific billing date. The length of your billing cycle will depend on the type of subscription that you choose when you sign-up for the service. In some cases, your payment date may change, for example, if your Payment Method has not successfully settled or if your paid membership began on a day not contained in a given month.

We may change our subscription plans and the price of our service from time to time; however, any price changes or changes to your subscription plans will apply to subsequent billing cycles following notice of the change(s) to you.

The delivery fee for buymie Plus members is waived for orders where the cost of Products is €40 or above; a delivery fee will apply for orders below €40.

You can cancel your Buymie Plus monthly membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to Buymie Plus service through the end of your billing period. You may cancel your buymie plus membership within the first 14 days of your paid membership and receive a refund of the membership fee, but only if you have not placed any orders using your paid buymie plus membership.

To cancel, go to the "Account" page and follow the instructions for cancellation.

A “Qualified Referral” means that all the following conditions are met:

The Friend registered an account with Buymie and entered the Referrer’s Referral code granting them a reward in the form of Buymie Bouns Credit and in a value chosen by Buymie. The Friend then completed their first purchase with Buymie and had their Products delivered by our personal shopper.

The Friend had not previously made a purchase with Buymie under any email address or alias;

The Friend is a) a legal resident of the Republic of Ireland or the UK b) at least 18 years old.

20. D. Earning Rewards

21. Deposit Return Scheme

From 1st February 2024, all Irish retailers will be required to charge a small deposit on bottles and cans that feature the Re-turn logo.

The deposit amount depends on the size of the container:

€0.15 per 150ml – 500 ml container

€0.25 per 500ml - 3 litre container

Customers can then return their empty, clean and undamaged containers to an in-store reverse vending machine and get this deposit back as a voucher. This voucher can then be redeemed for cash at the till or used towards your grocery shopping in-store.

If you choose a grocery product to purchase that does not have the Deposit Return Scheme charge and it is substituted for a product with a Deposit Return Scheme charge, you will be required to pay this charge. This means your final payment total will be higher than your original basket total.
