2. Purchase of a Voucher
2.1 Middlethorpe Hall & Spa uses a trusted third party provider, Gifted, to process its vouchers. ‘MIDDLETHORPE HALL SPA’ will appear on your bank statement.
2.2 By clicking on the ‘Confirm Order’ button you submit an offer to Gifted to buy the Voucher. However, the purchase of the Voucher is not complete until you receive an email from Gifted confirming acceptance of your offer. Gifted expressly reserves the right to reject your offer. In addition, even if Gifted has accepted your offer, it can cancel the contract at any time if it reasonably suspects that you have committed or that you may be committing any fraud against Gifted or Middlethorpe Hall & Spa.
3. Redemption of a Voucher
3.1 Unless expressly stated otherwise:
(a) the Voucher can only be redeemed once;
(b) you must follow the redemption instructions associated with the Voucher when you redeem it.
3.2 In order to redeem a Voucher you must present it to Middlethorpe Hall & Spa 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.
3.3 Unless expressly stated otherwise, the Voucher does not entitle the Voucher Holder to receive the Offering at a specific time. You are strongly recommended to contact Middlethorpe Hall & Spa at an early stage. Doing so will give you the best chance of securing your preferred time for the supply and/or provision of the Offering.
3.4 Vouchers are redeemable in their entirety only. They may not be redeemed partially or incrementally. If, for whatever reason, you redeem the Voucher for less than the original (un-discounted) value of the Offering, 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.
3.5 In the event that Middlethorpe Hall & Spa breach their contract with you, Middlethorpe Hall & Spa shall be responsible only for refunding the cost of the Voucher and any delivery costs incurred in the original purchase of the Voucher. Middlethorpe Hall & Spa shall not be liable to pay any other compensation or losses suffered by you as a consequence of Middlethorpe Hall & Spa’s breach of contract.
4. Use of a Voucher
4.1 You promise not to provide false data including false names, addresses and/or contact or payment details; or engage in any unlawful activity in connection with the purchase or use of a Voucher, or allow anyone else to do so.
4.2 Any attempt to redeem a Voucher contrary to these Terms of Sale may render a Voucher void at Middlethorpe Hall & Spa’s discretion.
4.3 The reproduction of a Voucher is prohibited. Each Voucher contains a unique reference code, which can only be redeemed once. Once a Voucher has been redeemed, the unique reference code will no longer be valid.
4.4 The commercial trade of a Voucher is prohibited.
5. Cancellation (and exceptions), Refunds and Problems
5.1 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 '). After this time, vouchers will be non-refundable. However, if you redeem your Voucher during the Voucher Cancellation Period, you expressly request Middlethorpe Hall & Spa to begin providing the services to you, and you acknowledge that you lose your right to cancel the purchase of the Voucher. Since Gifted is not responsible for the supply or provision of the Offering, once your Voucher is redeemed Gifted has completed its services to you in full.
5.2 If you want to cancel your purchase of a Voucher, within the 14 calendar days as per section 5.1, you can do so by writing to, or calling Middlethorpe Hall & Spa at the details mentioned in section 1.2.
5.3 If you cancel your purchase of the Voucher in accordance with this section 5, Middlethorpe Hall & Spa will refund you for all payments made as part of your purchase within 14 calendar days from the day on which you informed Middlethorpe Hall & Spa about your cancellation.
5.4 If you redeem your Voucher, but Middlethorpe Hall & Spa has not properly provided you with the Offering or if you have a complaint regarding the provision of the Offering, you must take action against Middlethorpe Hall & Spa. This is because Middlethorpe Hall & Spa, and not Gifted, is responsible for the supply and/or provision of the Offering. Gifted only sells and supplies the Voucher.
5.5 Any refund will be refunded to you via your original method of payment. If your original method of payment has been cancelled, expired or has otherwise changed, you will still receive the refund to your original method of payment and your bank should forward it to the correct account, you may need to coordinate with your bank or your payment services provider to obtain your refund. Middlethorpe Hall & Spa will not provide more than one refund.
5.6 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 Middlethorpe Hall & Spa related to, arising out of, or connected to that Voucher.
6. Responsibility for the Offering
6.1 Please note that Middlethorpe Hall & Spa, and not Gifted, is:
6.1.1 the seller, supplier and/or provider of the Offering;

You can send any notice to Gifted at the registered office address as set out in section 1.2.
10.2 If any provision of these Terms of Sale should be held to be invalid or unenforceable, the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of these Terms of Sale are not affected. Such invalid or unenforceable provision shall be replaced by a valid and enforceable provision which most closely achieves the economic effect contemplated by the invalid or unenforceable provision.
