Customer Cancellation

As a general rule Buyer shall not be entitled to cancel Order once placed. Buyer may choose to cancel Order only within one-minute of the Order being placed. However, subject to Buyer’s previous cancellation history, SaveEat reserves the right to deny any refund to Buyer pursuant to a cancellation initiated by Buyer even if the same is within one-minute followed by suspension of account, as may be necessary in the sole discretion of SaveEat.

Since the objective of our business is to tackle the issue of food surplus, If the Buyer cancels his/her Order after one minute of placing it, SaveEat shall have a right to collect a penalty of 100% of the Order amount for breach of contract terms as a compensation for the damages suffered by SaveEat, with a right to either not to refund the Order value in case Buyer’s Order is prepaid to compensate the Merchants.

Non-Customer Cancellation

SaveEat reserves the right to collect a penalty for the Orders constrained to be cancelled by SaveEat for reasons not attributable to SaveEat, including but not limited to:

  • failure to contact Buyer by phone or email at the time of collecting the Order booking;

In such an event Buyer will be entitled to cancel the entire Order and shall be entitled to a refund to an amount upto 100% of the Order value.

Important Note 1: The Buyer shall verify his/her Order and the products before providing OTP to the Merchant at the time of accepting the order and any issue with respect to the product or Buyer’s Order shall be notified immediately, and cancellation request shall be placed before providing OTP to the Merchant. Once OTP is provided to the Merchant, it shall be deemed that the Buyer has accepted delivery of his/her Order and once he/she has accepted the items, the Buyer cannot cancel the Order and/or claim refund.

Important Note 2: In case of the complaint of any spurious product, the liability shall solely lie with the Merchant selling the product. SaveEat is merely facilitating the transactions between the Merchant and the Buyer and therefore, SaveEat shall assume no liability with respect to the products sold by the Merchant.
