WELCOME

Loblaw Companies Limited, together with its affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively and individually "Loblaw") is pleased to provide this website (the “Application”) for your personal, non-commercial use. By using this site, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions below and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. 

We are pleased to offer you the ability to register for and participate in President's Choice® cooking school classes (the “Classes”) using the Application, subject to the terms set out below. 

IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY AND COMPLY WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS BELOW, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO ACCESS OR USE THE APPLICATION, OR PARTICIPATE IN THE CLASSES.

REGISTRATION

You may only register for Classes if you are at least 18 years old (or have the permission of your guardian) and are a resident of Canada. These terms and conditions apply to residents of Canada only.

If a Class does not reach the minimum registration numbers established by Loblaw, or if unforeseen or exceptional circumstances arise, Loblaw reserves the right to cancel or postpone the Class on 24 hours prior notice. If this occurs you will be provided the option of a full refund or the choice to transfer to another Class at a different location and/or time.

All Class menus are subject to change on the day to take advantage of market availability and seasonal variety. You agree to call and discuss any food allergies with us prior to attending any Classes.

In order to register for a Class online, you must register for an account by logging in using the PC™ id credentials provided to you in association with certain Loblaw and Shoppers Drug Mart Inc. websites or mobile applications (“Account”). If you do not have an Account, you can register for one through http://www.pcoptimum.ca. When registering for an Account, you agree to provide accurate and current information about yourself as requested and to promptly update such information as necessary to ensure that it is kept accurate and complete. You agree to be responsible for: (a) the accuracy of all information that you provide to us; (b) maintaining the confidentiality of any passwords or other account identifiers that you choose or that are otherwise assigned to you as a result of any registration or purchase made through the Application; and (c) all activities that occur under such password(s) or Account(s). Further, you agree to notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or Account of which you are or become aware at loblawprivacy@loblaw.ca. Loblaw shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, in any way for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of, or in connection with, your failure to comply with this section, or for any delay in shutting down your Account after you have reported a breach of security to us.

FEES, PAYMENTS AND RESCHEDULING

All payments for Classes are non-refundable UNLESS a refund is requested 48 hours prior to the first date of the Class. If you are unable to attend your booked Class, you must notify the cooking school coordinator specific to that Class by telephone at least 48 hours before your Class date to change to another Class or to send a friend as a replacement. You may only send a friend if they have read and agreed to these terms and conditions. The cooking coordinator's contact information will have been provided to you at the time of registration.

You agree that payment will be charged to the credit card that you supplied for the deposit. If you want to make alternate arrangements for final payment or to provide an alternate credit card, you must contact Loblaw before the final payment is due. Your place in a Class is only confirmed when payment is received in full by Loblaw.

If you fail to pay any fees or charges when due (including fees or charges for cancellation fees or damages arising from fraudulent use) or if any payment by you is invalidated for any reason, you remain responsible for any such fees or charges, in full. We reserve the right to charge such amount directly to the credit card provided by you at the time you registered for a Class. You are responsible and liable for any fees, including legal costs and collection costs, that we may incur in its efforts to collect any unpaid balances from you.
