Terms & Conditions

Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before using the www.thepickyapp.com websites or the PICKY app (collectively, the “Site”) operated by AIA LTD (“us”, “we”, or “our”). These Terms apply to your use of the Site as well as any associated services we may offer you, whether directly through the Site or otherwise (these services and the Site are collectively referred to as the “Service”). Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who access or use the Service. By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not access the Service. Subject to these Terms and Conditions, we hereby grant you a limited, non-transferrable, non-exclusive, and revocable license to use the Service for your own personal non-commercial use.

Overview and Ordering

The purpose of the Service is to provide a platform to connect you with our kitchens, restaurants or catering partners (“Partners”), and to facilitate the ordering of food and related items and services to be provided to you by the Partner. We make no representations regarding the items or services provided to you by our partners. Your interactions between you and our Partners are strictly between you and our Partners, and we are under no obligation to be involved.

Ordering through the App may occur through various channels as explained on the Site or in any email, SMS or MMS (collectively, ‘Message’) generated by us. You may also store your payment information (e.g., credit card) on file with us or our third-party suppliers to facilitate convenient ordering.

When ordering, your credit or debit card may be charged immediately with the specified amount once you place an order with our Partners through the Service (e.g., by ordering through the app, or replying to a Message to place an order), or, for catering orders, at such other time as indicated on your order confirmation or other Message sent to you by us. We may enable ordering through other means and notify you of those means through a Message. You will receive a Message confirming that your order has been placed and containing the receipt of your charges. You may cancel your order for a credit, or, at our sole discretion, a refund, in the amount of the full purchase price at any time before the cut-off time specified on your order confirmation.

All meals are subject to availability. Orders are honoured on a first-come-first-served basis, and your order (including any ‘pending’ order) is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation Message from us.

When you sign up for the Service, you may be asked to provide us with payment information. Your ability to use the Service may be limited until this step has been completed. By providing us with this information, you represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment method(s) provided.

We provide photographs and descriptions of our Partners’ offerings and use reasonable efforts to ensure that those photographs and descriptions are accurate. You acknowledge that occasionally a meal will not look exactly as photographed or taste as described, and by using the Service you agree to accept such meals where there are reasonable variations between the photographs/descriptions and what the Partners offer.

You agree that delivery estimates are estimates and we are not liable for reasonable variations in the estimated delivery time.
