Restaurant partners and delivery partners will do their best to deliver the meal at the estimated time of arrival and no later than our estimated latest delivery time. The actual delivery time will depend on the busyness of the restaurant partner, the number of your orders, traffic conditions, weather conditions and other conditions.

 

Please make sure that the correct delivery address and contact number have been posted on the rescueBite app to ensure that your order is delivered to the correct location. If you want to change the delivery address after placing the order (before the delivery partner goes to pick up the meal), and if the new location you want to change is also within the delivery area of ​​the restaurant partner, we may have the opportunity to help you change the order. If the new location is outside the delivery area of​​the restaurant partner, the restaurant partner has already started to prepare the meal, and/or the delivery partner has gone to pick up the meal, you will be required to pay the full price of the meal and shipping.

When the meal is completed and delivered to you, all meals or food risks will be transferred to you at the same time.

 

Undeliverable

You must ensure that the food delivery location you specify is safe and passable to ensure that the delivery partner can deliver the meal to you smoothly. If there is no route for the delivery partner to pass through, and the delivery partner cannot deliver your order, you will be responsible for the meal products and shipping costs. Undeliverable situations may also occur: If the delivery partner has arrived at the delivery address and tries to contact you, but you cannot answer the phone or respond to the text message within ten minutes after the delivery partner actually arrives at the address you provided the delivery partner, the delivery cannot be completed and you will have to pay the full amount for your order.

 

(ii) Self-collection

If you choose "Pick Up" when placing an order, you will be notified when (1) the restaurant partner accepts the order, (2) the estimated completion time of the order, and (3) when the order is completed. When your order is confirmed by the restaurant partner, you will have to pay for it.

Cancel the order while the delivery partner is going to pick up the meal

If you want to cancel the order while the delivery partner is going to pick up the meal, you will have to pay for the meal and delivery fee.

(i) Cancellation by restaurant partner

Sometimes the restaurant partner may cancel your order because the meal item is no longer available and/or there is no cooperating delivery partner. At this time, rescueBite will notify you through the app that the order has been cancelled. You will not have to pay any fees for this, and for any fees you have paid, we will refund you in full in the same way you choose to pay. We may also provide a credit line to your account to reflect the inconvenience caused to you.
