Terms & Conditions
The Important Stuff
These Terms and Conditions govern participation in Scoffed cooking classes. Participants’ rights under these Terms and Conditions are in addition to and do not in any way limit their rights under Australian Privacy Law, which may not be lawfully excluded. All other terms, conditions, guarantees and liabilities which are not expressly included in these Terms and Conditions are excluded.
- Bookings and Payments.
2.1 Bookings are non-transferrable.
2.2 All payments are non-refundable unless a class is cancelled by Scoffed in which case the participant can transfer the booking to another class.
3.1 Participants are requested to arrive no later than 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of the Class.
3.2 Participants must follow the Food Handling and Hygiene Procedures and all reasonable instructions issued by Scoffed personnel from time to time.
3.3 Participants must wear appropriate footwear and clothing as advised. Required attire includes, but is not limited to; wearing comfortable closed toe shoes and clothing, hair shoulder length or longer must be tied back; excessive jewellery to be avoided.
3.4 Participants must be age 6 or above to attend a class. Participants younger than 6 can be accommodated, but will need to be supervised for the whole class by a responsible adult.
3.5 Participants who require a carer due to special needs must ensure a separate booking and payment is arranged for the carer. The same carer must attend all classes in the course for health and safety purposes. It is preferable for a person with special needs to arrive 15 minutes before the first class to ensure the Scoffed team have adequate time to discuss any issues that may arise for the participant during the course. If after the completion of the first class the participant with special needs is deemed to require the full time assistance of the carer (assessed by Food Trainer), the carer will no longer be able to participate in the class and must expressly be there to assist. A ratio for participants with special needs who
require a carer is 1 (carer) to 1 (participant).
3.6 Any participant who has been or suspects they may be ill, or becomes ill, in the 48 hours prior to any booked class with any communicable diseases (e.g. colds and flu; diarrhoea, vomiting) and other infections must not attend the relevant class. This is necessary to protect all participants as these sorts of illnesses can be spread through food.
3.7 A participant may be refused admission or required to leave a class if any member of personnel suspects that the participant is under the influence of alcohol or any other substance, is ill with a communicable disease or is engaging in inappropriate behaviour (as determined by Scoffed personnel).
3.8 Participants must follow all instructions issued by the Scoffed team for the preparation of the meals and the transportation, storage, re-heating and consumption of the meals. Participants are solely responsible for the transportation, proper storage and re-heating of all meals.
3.9 Each participant is responsible for advising Scoffed at the time of booking of any food allergies that the participant may have. Classes involve cooking with a variety of ingredients including potentially allergenic foods (including without limitation nuts and eggs). Any participant with a food allergy must consult with the Scoffed team both before and during any class prior to handling or consuming any foods.
