Employer Terms & Conditions

Specific Terms Relating to Free Trials

Please read these conditions carefully before using the onlychefs.co.uk website. By using the onlychefs.co.uk website, you signify your agreement to be bound by these conditions:

By submitting your details and completing the free trial form, you have agreed to be bound by the terms and conditions of this trial and our general terms and conditions - both of which were outlined on the free trial form you completed (and provided below for your records). For the avoidance of doubt, the free trial and subsequent paid 30 day subscription service are time NOT usage based. You will (where appropriate an inline with our terms and conditions), be charged whether you use OR do not use the platform during any specified time period.

What happens at the end of my free trial?

Once your FREE trial period ends you will automatically pay £99 per 30 days for continued access to Only Chefs (normal price = £250 per month). This automatic payment will continue every 30 days until you cancel your subscription. We do not offer partial refunds so if you cancel your subcription it will finish at the end of the current 30 day period and not renew.

What if I don't want to pay for access after my free trial ends?

Just cancel your subscription before your trial expires and no charges will apply. To clarify 'before your trial expires' refers to cancelling prior to your given expiry date. For example, if your trial ends on 25th December, you need to cancel on or before the 24th December. To cancel your subscription at anytime do either of the below:

A) Log in to Only Chefs. Go to the 'ACCOUNT' tab and click on the link called 'MANAGE AN EXISTING FREE TRIAL' - complete the short form and submit.
B) Click on the cancel anytime link emailed to you when you signed up for the free trial. This email will be from sender: 'Leadpages Subscriptions' and have the subject: 'Your New Subscription'.

Please note we DO NOT accept cancellation requests via TELEPHONE, EMAIL or via our CONTACT US FORM. Requests made through these channels will NOT be actioned.

Where do I find my free trial expiry date?

Your free trial expiry date can be located in two ways. 1) By clicking the link in the email sent from 'Leadpages Subscriptions' (See B above) - this will take you to a secure online page where all your subscription details are shown. 2) When we activate your free trial account you'll receive your access details via email. This email will also state your free trial expiry date.

Please ensure you add: contact@onlychefs.co.uk to your email address book, and check your spam folder if you are expecting an email from us and haven't yet received it.
