2. Purchasing Products
We negotiate and advertise offers, products, experiences, surveys and any other promotional based offerings (collectively, the “Offer”) with various suppliers of goods and services on behalf of our customers. The Offers are conditional upon certain requirements being met and may have specific terms and conditions attached to them, which will be displayed in relation to any specific Offer on the Website. Upon receipt of confirmation from our third party payment service provider (“Paypal”) that they have received your payment for the Product, we shall issue you with the Product. We are not the supplier of the goods and/or services under the Offer, the supplier of the goods or services will be a third party (the “Merchant”). We will issue the Products on the Merchant’s behalf and the Merchant will be solely responsible for supplying the Product. The Merchant has agreed with us that it will supply the Products bought through the Website.
We also advertise and sell our own products, the Time Out 50thAnniversary Book (the “Time Out Book”) and Time Out 50thmerchandise including, tote bags, t shirts, other garments, posters, prints and any other merchandise which Time Out may produce in its sole discretion (the “Merchandise”) (the Time Out Book and the Merchandise together the “Time Out Good(s)”). We will accept your order of Time Out Goods when you receive a payment confirmation email from us, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. If your payment is declined, you will be notified. Postage costs for Time Out Goods are subject to change from time to time and will be notified to you on the landing page for each Product. Once you place an order for the Time Out Book and have provided Time Out with your delivery address, your physical item will be sent to you in the post and be delivered in accordance with the following timeframes:

4. Your personal data and data protection
By placing an order and purchasing a Product through the Website, you agree to provide only accurate and complete registration information and you will keep that information up to date if it changes. You must never use another Website user’s account without obtaining their prior consent. You are solely responsible for any and all access to the Website by persons using your account and so we suggest you keep your account password secure. You must notify us immediately if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your account.

- completing the transaction;
- statistical analysis;
- sending you news of our special events, offers, promotions and newsletters either by post, email, SMS or through any social network (you can manage your preferences using your user account and can opt out of receiving such communications at any time); and
- market research.
5. How the contract is formed between you and us
Upon receipt of your payment by Paypal following your purchase of the Product via the Website, we shall immediately confirm your order by sending a voucher to the email address provided, which will include redemption instructions on how to access the Product purchased.
6. Our status
Time Out is only responsible for issuing the Offer to the customer. Time Out is not the supplier of the goods and/or services under the Offer. Therefore, from the point of issuing the Offer onwards, the execution and supply of the Offer is the sole responsibility of the Merchant, pursuant to their own T&Cs of sale. For the avoidance of doubt, the Offer will be subject to any applicable timeframes, conditions and cancellation provisions detailed in the Merchant's T&Cs of sale.
The Merchant is the seller of the goods and/or services under the Offer and is solely responsible for ensuring the Offer and the goods and/or services are performed and comply with all applicable law.
Other than in respect of Time Out Goods, Time Out’s obligations under these Terms are solely to issue the Product to you under the Offer. Time Out is not the seller of such goods and/or services and the Merchant is solely responsible for supplying such goods and/or services and redeeming any such Product in respect of the same pursuant to their terms and conditions of sale.
Time Out disclaims any and all responsibility or liability in relation to the Offer or for any goods or services supplied in relation to it to the maximum extent permissible by law. Neither Time Out nor its officers, employees or any third parties may be held liable whether in relation to contract, warranty, tort (including negligence), product liability, tax matters or any other form of liability for any claim, damage or loss, arising from or relating to the provision of all or any goods or services sold or agreed to be supplied pursuant to the Offer.
We may provide links on our site to the websites of other companies, whether affiliated with us or not. We cannot give any undertaking, that products you purchase from third party sellers, or from companies to whose website we have provided a link on our site, will be of satisfactory quality, and any such warranties are disclaimed by us absolutely. This disclaimer does not affect your statutory rights against the third party seller and/or the Merchant. Time Out may disclose the customer information that you provided when purchasing the Product to the Merchant, if this is required for the Merchant to provide you with the Product.
7. Consumer rights
If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel your contract for an Offer at any time within fourteen (14) days beginning on the day of the purchase (provided that any voucher in relation to a Product has not yet been redeemed or provided that a date that relates to a Product with a specific date has not passed during that time) (the “Cooling Off Period”). Cancellation requests should be sent directly to email@example.com and you may use the Model Cancellation Form found below. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Product, including any applicable Booking Fees, in accordance with our refunds policy. The Cooling Off Period does not apply to certain types of contracts to provide accommodation, transport, catering or leisure services (for example hotel accommodation, plane, train or concert tickets, car hire or sporting events) where it has been agreed that the service will be provided on a specific date or within a specific period. Services that will begin, by agreement, before the end of the Cooling Off Period are also excluded.
To cancel your contract for an Offer, you must inform us in writing within the Cooling Off Period. This time period is critical and cannot be extended. In the event that we receive written notice within the Cooling Off Period we shall cancel your purchase of the Product and you must also destroy any associated voucher held electronically or in printed form. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
In relation to Products purchased to attend an event or a course, circumstances outside of Time Out’s control may mean that Time Out is obliged to make minor changes to the schedule or content of any event or course. Time Out shall use its best endeavours to ensure that the event or course remains as unchanged as possible and shall make every effort to ensure that any replacements or changes are of an equivalent nature to that being changed.
