25.2 By clicking on the “Buy Now” button you commit to buy the Voucher in accordance to TryMyKitchen’s terms & conditions. TryMyKitchen expressly reserves the right to reject your purchase or to cancel the contract at any time if it reasonably suspects that you have committed or that you may be committing any fraud against TryMyKitchen or an affiliated third party of TryMyKitchen.
26. Redemption of a Voucher
26.1 Unless expressly stated otherwise:
(a) the Voucher can only be redeemed once;
(b) the Voucher can only be redeemed with the Host;
(c) the Voucher is valid for one person only; and
(d) you must follow the redemption instructions associated with the Voucher when you redeem the Voucher with the Host.
26.2 In order to redeem a Voucher you must present it to the Host within the Redemption Period. If you do not redeem the Voucher within the Redemption Period, the Voucher expires automatically. It cannot be redeemed anymore and you are not entitled to any reimbursement or compensation.
26.3 Unless expressly stated otherwise, the Voucher does not entitle the Voucher Holder to receive a Host Food Experience at a specific time. You are strongly recommended to contact the Host at an early stage. Doing so will give you the best chance of securing your preferred time for your Food Experience. TryMyKitchen cannot influence Host Food Experience times.
26.4 Vouchers are redeemable in their entirety only. They may not be redeemed partially or incrementally. If, for whatever reason, you redeem the Voucher with a Host for less than the original (un-discounted) value of the Food Experience, you are not entitled to a credit, cash refund or new Voucher for the difference between the original (un-discounted) value and the redeemed value.
26.5 In the event that a Host cannot supply and/or provide the food experience as described for unforeseen reasons, TryMyKitchen will notify you as soon as possible by email and offer you a full refund.

28.1 You have a statutory right to cancel your purchase of the Voucher within 14 calendar days after the day you receive the confirmation email (the “Voucher Cancellation Period”). However, if you redeem your Voucher during the Voucher Cancellation Period, you expressly request TryMyKitchen to begin providing the services to you, and you acknowledge that you lose your right to cancel the purchase of the Voucher. Since TryMyKitchen is not responsible for the supply or provision of the Food Experience, once your Voucher is redeemed TryMyKitchen has completed its services to you in full

28.4 If you redeem your Voucher, but the Host has not properly provided you with the Food Experience described on TryMyKitchen, or if you have a complaint regarding the provision of the Food Experience you must take action against the Host directly. This is because the Host, and not TryMyKitchen, is responsible for the supply and/or provision of the Food Experience. TryMyKitchen only sells and supplies the Voucher. However, if you and the Host cannot agree on how to resolve the complaint, TryMyKitchen may, upon your request, try to help resolve the issue between you and the Host.
28.5 Unless you expressly inform TryMyKitchen in advance not to, any refund in cash will be refunded to you via your original method of payment.

TryMyKitchen will not provide more than one refund.
28.6 You have 30 days from the date you receive the refund to reject it. If you do not reject the refund during these 30 days, the refund shall be in full and final settlement of any and all claims you may have against TryMyKitchen related to, arising out of, or connected to that Voucher.
29. Responsibility for the Food Experience
29.1 Please note that the Host, and not TryMyKitchen, is:
29.1.1 the supplier and/or provider of the Food Experience;
29.1.2 the party who enters into a contract with the Voucher Holder when the Voucher is redeemed; and solely responsible for providing the Voucher Holder with the Food Experience themselves.
