If the order is placed after this time, it is an order placed for delivery on Tuesday of the following week (12 days later)), the customer indicates the food exclusions. The customer fills in his personal data and payment information before confirming the payment of the first order.

4. Weekly Food services
4.1 Product preparation
Weekly Food prepares and markets ready-made meals made from fresh, often natural ingredients, usually without additives. The company's recipes favour local and seasonal products. The product images presented on the site are not contractually binding. They are suggestions for presentation. Weekly Food cannot be held responsible for any discrepancy between these images and the actual appearance of the products.
4.2 Shipment of products
The dishes ordered by the customer are packaged in individual sealed trays and sent cold by the company in an isothermal box which guarantees the cold chain for 24/48 hours after packaging.
Weekly Food delivers autonomously to these close customers and sends the distant shipments by Swiss Post. In the case of postal dispatch, the delegation to Swiss Post takes place the day before the delivery at 4 pm.
Weekly Food instructs the Swiss Post to leave the parcel in front of the door or near the mailbox in case the recipient is absent. Weekly Food declines all responsibility for theft or damage in case of absence of the customer at the time of delivery, which the customer explicitly acknowledges by accepting the general conditions.
4.4 Perishable products
Weekly Food draws the customer's attention to the perishable nature of its ready meals.
The customer must place the cooked dishes in a refrigerator at 2-4˚C no later than 9pm (Swiss time) on the day of delivery, the earlier the better, and keep them there. If the customer is required to move their dishes before consumption, they must ensure that the cold chain is respected. The use-by date is indicated on the label of each dish and the customer must comply with it.
Failure to do so can lead to serious problems and Weekly Food cannot be held responsible.
Weekly Food strives to deliver all ordered products in sufficient quantities and in perfect quality. In some cases, however, it may happen that for various reasons a product is no longer available in the required quantities or that it cannot be delivered within the requested period. If a product is not available at the time of delivery, Weekly Food is entitled to replace it with a similar product of the same kind and, if possible, of better quality, or to adapt its recipe accordingly, always respecting the category of dish selected and the food exclusions indicated by the customer. In case of replaced products, the customer can neither claim compensation nor damages.
If an invoiced product cannot be delivered, the corresponding amount will be refunded to the customer.
There is no new delivery and the customer has no claim for damages.
If, for reasons beyond Weekly Food's control (e.g. wrong delivery address, absence of the recipient, no access, difficult traffic due to bad weather or road traffic, failure of the Swiss Post to fulfil its obligations, etc.), the delivery is made impossible or almost impossible, Weekly Food is entitled to cancel the order. Any claim of the customer for compensation in kind or damages is in this case entirely excluded.
Weekly Food takes complaints about our ready-made meals into account and tries to respond to them as best as possible. However, due to the perishable nature of our products, any queries about them should be made within a maximum of forty-eight (48) hours of delivery via firstname.lastname@example.org.
4.6 Return of delivery boxes and insulated equipment
As an option, the customer may choose to return the delivery carton and the isothermal equipment it contains to Weekly Food. To do so, the customer must have purchased the Optional item - Package return.
This item is automatically added to the shopping cart of customers visiting www.weekly-food.ch, however, at their option, the visitor can choose to remove this item from their cart and therefore keep/recycle the shipping carton and the isothermal equipment themselves.
The customer can then return the delivery box and all the isothermal elements (cardboard, two-part isothermal protection, cold accumulators) at no extra cost, by presenting the closed package with the return label at a La Poste counter.
2. Conclusion of the contract
The contract is concluded when the client accepts the offer made by the Company in connection with the purchase of the Company's products.
The contract is in any case concluded as soon as the client accepts the services offered by the Company and/or orders products on the Company's website or purchases its products directly.
Unless otherwise agreed, all prices are quoted in Swiss francs (CHF). The Company reserves the right to indicate prices in other currencies depending on the countries in which its products are sold.
All prices quoted include additional amounts for Value Added Tax (VAT), where applicable. The applicable VAT rate is determined by the country concerned.
The prices do not include any additional taxes that may apply.
The Company reserves the right to change its prices at any time. The prices indicated on the Company's website and in its price list shall apply at the time the contract is concluded.
5. Secure payment platform
Payment for orders is mainly made by Visa or Mastercard via the Swiss platform Wallee and the secure payment platform Concardis (please read the General Terms and Conditions of Use of Concardis).
Prior to the first order, the customer provides his or her payment information and expressly agrees that this information may be stored by the Concardis platform.
The Concardis platform collects information related to the method of payment (e.g., payment card number or bank account information), the amount of the purchase, the date of the purchase, and the method of payment. The information collected may vary depending on the payment method used.
As part of our fraud monitoring, prevention and detection activities, Concardis may also receive personal data about you from our business partners, financial service providers, identity verification services, and publicly available sources (e.g., name, address, telephone number, country of residence) in order to confirm customer identity and prevent fraud.
The Company offers the client the following payment methods: credit card, Twint, Paypal. On a case by case basis. Most of the public customers only have the possibility to pay by credit card.
Generally, the sales price shall be fully paid by the client upon conclusion of the contract. The Company will send the ordered products as soon as the sales price is paid, the meals cooked and the day before the selected delivery day.
Where the Company offers products for sale, hire or other use through an internet platform, it reserves the right to require payment to be made electronically as part of the ordering process (credit card, Paypal or other payment systems).
It is not possible for the client to offset any claims against the invoice amount that he has to pay to the Company.
