Where the cart is left for the remainder of the day after we have removed the cheese, absolutely no food items other than our own should be placed on it without our explicit agreement. As we will not be there to monitor this, food not provided by us will be placed there at the clients own risk. We will not accept any responsibility should this occur. Sweet, crisp and donut carts should also be placed in a cool, shaded room, away from direct sunlight.
