THE McDELIVERY PLATFORM AND THE APPLICATION

38. The McDelivery Platform allows you to order McDonald’s for home delivery from participating McDonald’s restaurants in Australia. The Application allows you to order McDonald’s for pick up at a McDonald’s restaurant.

39. The McDelivery Platform and the Application may only be used in Australia and only in respect of meal items generally available at participating McDonald’s restaurants across Australia.

40. When you place an order, you purchase the meal items you have selected and you will be given a unique order code.

41. We calculate McDelivery service areas based on driving time and distance and restaurant capacity. Your closest McDonald’s restaurant may not be the restaurant that fulfils your order. If for any reasons you require a particular restaurant to fulfil your order (for example, a restaurant with Halal certified products), please visit us in restaurant.

42. As the functioning of the restaurant locator relies on third party systems, McDonald’s does not promise that the restaurant locator will be available or accurate at all times. Trading hours are correct at time of publishing but subject to variation.

43. In relation to the McDelivery Platform, we will start preparing your order when it reaches the head of the queue and a driver is available. Quoted delivery times are estimates only and may be affected by traffic, weather and order volume. We give you an estimated time at the start of the order process and when you confirm your order to give you the most up to date time. In relation to the Application, we will start preparing your order when the mobile device you ordered from is within a certain distance of a restaurant (Zone) and you check in on that mobile device.

44. McDelivery service areas are constantly changing as we allocate delivery areas to try to deliver the freshest possible products and to meet changing demand. Sometimes, you will find that you are no longer within the delivery area. In relation to the Application, you must be within a Zone and checked in before your order will be sent to a restaurant, and your order will be sent to the restaurant where you check in. From time to time, we may change the size and shape of the Zone to accommodate for local factors around a restaurant, or for any other reasons we deem appropriate. The Application relies on location services being enabled on your mobile device, and you having your mobile device with you when you enter the Zone and check in. If you enter the Zone without your mobile device or without location services enabled, or if you do not check in, your order will not be sent to our kitchen for preparation.

45. As product availability and pricing may vary from restaurant to restaurant, McDonald’s cannot guarantee that the order you generate using the McDelivery Platform or the Application will be available for the same total cost at the time your order is processed.

SIGN IN

46. In order to use the McDelivery Platform, McDonald’s Parties or the Application, you must be a member of the MyMacca’s Club. When you create an Account for the McDelivery Platform or the Application, or place an order on McDonald’s Parties, you accept these Terms and Conditions in relation to the Club.

PAYMENT

47. Payment is required in full at the time of order by the methods shown on the McDelivery Platform and the Application. McDonald’s does not accept cash or cheques as a payment option for the McDelivery Platform or the Application. If we can’t process your payment, we won’t be able to fulfil your order. We won’t be liable to you when we can’t process your payment.

47A. Shortly after registering a payment method on the Application or McDelivery Platform, a small verification transaction may appear on your account. The transaction may be for $0 or approximately $1 depending on your card. The transaction is required to verify your payment method and will only appear for a small amount of money. The transaction may appear as pending for up to 10 working days then should disappear. In many cases the transaction will only appear for 1 to 3 days.

50. McDonald’s vouchers are not redeemable through the McDelivery Platform or Application unless specifically stated on the voucher terms and conditions.
