Terms and Conditions
Ratification of the Agreement

By filling in and ratifying the registration form or getting any services or ordering a meal using this system, the user agrees to be bound by the user agreement of Iqrab.
Description of the Services
- Iqrab allows its members who ratify the agreement to order from restaurants online.
- Iqrab provides a way for you to communicate your orders to delivery restaurants displayed on this website.
- The purpose of this site is to provide a simple and convenient service to consumers, linking them to restaurants in their area that offer takeaway food. Interactive menus allow customers to build and submit orders at the click of a button.
- We have created the website to serve as a food court online market. Iqrab is a commercial service for food delivery online ordering.
- Iqrab does not sell or interfere in any way in the production of any food produced at the restaurants. But what this online market offers to the users is only providing the ability to search for and find local restaurants that deliver or make food available to their addresses and enables ordering this food through this website. The restaurants are obligated to comply with country local laws, rules, regulations, and standards pertaining to food preparation, sale, marketing and safety.
- However, it is important for users to understand that Iqrab does not in any way independently verify the credentials, representations or products of restaurants, the ingredients or the quality of any products, or that a restaurant is in compliance with applicable laws. Buyers must make themselves comfortable through information provided by restaurants on the website or as requested by buyers directly from the restaurants as to the quality and reliability of the restaurants, as well as to their compliance with applicable laws.
- In addition, a restaurant may represent that food preparation is in accordance with special standards such as "organic," "macrobiotic" or allergen-specific standards such as "nut-free", "gluten-free", or "lactose-free". However, Iqrab does not independently investigate or verify such representations.
- Iqrab shall not be liable or responsible for any food or services offered by restaurants that is unhealthy, is the cause of injury, that is otherwise unacceptable to buyers or that does not meet the expectation of buyers in any manner.
- Buyers are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy of delivery addresses, and Iqrab shall have no liability or responsibility for any such erroneous addresses. All food preparation and deliveries are the sole responsibility of the restaurant accepting the order. Please be aware that the restaurant will do everything they can to meet the delivery time specified, however delivery times may be affected by factors beyond their control and therefore cannot be guaranteed.
How to make an order and how it is processed
- Once you have selected your order from the menu of your chosen Delivery Restaurants you will be given the opportunity to submit your order by clicking on the “Checkout” button. Please note it is important that you check the information that you enter and correct any errors before clicking on the “Checkout” button since once you click on this input errors cannot be corrected. On receipt of your order, Iqrab will begin processing your order and we will send a message on the final page that your order has been received and sent successfully to the restaurant. Where any payment you make is not authorized you will be returned to the previous page on the website and we shall not be obliged to provide the services.
- You have the right to cancel an order up to 5 minutes from placing the order on our website.
- While every effort is made to ensure that accurate pricing and descriptions are maintained, we reserve the right to cancel any order that is based on inaccurate information.
