Mad Diet Ts & Cs
Your subscription contract will be fulfilled by Mad Diet, IDA Business Park, Purcellsinch, Kilkenny, KIK R95 RFK0, Ireland.
When the subscription contract is formed (for subscription customers only – does not apply to individual purchases)
When you click “Submit Order” to submit your order online, you are making an offer to take out a subscription which if accepted by us, will result in a binding contract. You must be over 18 to submit an order to purchase a product or subscription.
If placing your order online when you click “Submit Order” you will either see a page or receive an email if you have supplied your email address acknowledging that your order has been received successfully and is being processed, the contract between us is not formed at this point. A legally binding contract is formed on the date we send you confirmation of your order with your subscription account number and payment has been taken.
You will receive this confirmation within 72 hours if you supplied an email address. We reserve the right not to accept or process your order for any reason. All orders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by your payment card issuer. If we do not accept your order and your credit/debit card has already been debited, we will notify you and refund your card in full immediately.
We will deliver the products to the address you notify to us when you place your order. Please allow up to 14 working days for delivery. You agree that we will not be responsible for failure to deliver the products if you have supplied us with an incorrect address. We reserve the right to dispose of incorrectly addressed envelopes and their contents without an obligation to refund you or any other person if they are returned to us and despite efforts to contact you we do not receive correct address details.
Delay in delivery and non-delivery
We will not be liable to you for any delay in delivery or non-delivery of products in the following circumstances:
- where the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us;
- where such delay or failure is due to circumstances beyond our control or the control of our sub–contractors and agents, including but not restricted to war, electricity power failure, utilities failure, failure of telecommunications links, failure of transport infrastructure, fire, flood, government act, act of God, legislative constraints, strikes, labour disputes or malicious damage involving employees.

Our returns policy is in addition to your consumer legal rights. If you are a consumer, you have a 14 day legal right to cancel a Contract from the day you take receipt of the products under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product or wish to unsubscribe from a Subscription Plan, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel, provided you return the Products to us if they are delivered to you before or after you cancel the Contract.

If you are e-mailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to help us to identify it (your name, order number and date). If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then, provided you return the Products to us if they are delivered to you before or after you cancel the Contract, your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or e-mail us before midnight on that day.
If you cancel your Contract we will:
refund you the price you paid for any Products or Subscription Plan; and
make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us.

We refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. In exceptional circumstances, we may agree to a refund beyond the usual cancellation period. Where more than 90 days have passed since the purchase for which a refund has been agreed, these refunds will be paid via BACS transfer, and as such, we will require valid bank details in order to complete the transaction. Any refund beyond the normal cancellation period will be entirely at our discretion.

you must return the Products to us as soon as reasonably practicable to Mad Diet, IDA Business Park, Purcellsinch, Kilkenny, KIK R95 RFK0, Ireland and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract;
