Dispute Resolution; Limit on Time to Bring Claim; Arbitration of Claims; Class Action Waiver
ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION RELATING TO, ARISING UNDER OR OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE, INCLUDING ANY SALES OR SUBSCRIPTIONS MADE THROUGH THIS WEBSITE, MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE OR BE FOREVER BARRED.
Both you and Vitality Farms Company agree, with the limited exceptions noted below, to resolve all disputes between you and Vitality Farms Company through BINDING ARBITRATION as further provided below. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU AND THE COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Any dispute submitted to arbitration under these Terms and Conditions will be governed by the laws of your home state of residence without respect to its choice (or conflict) of laws rules.
Jurisdiction and venue for any dispute will be in Lakeland, Florida. Each party submits to personal jurisdiction and venue in that forum for any and all purposes. If this paragraph would render any other paragraph or provision of these Terms and Conditions unenforceable, then jurisdiction and venue will instead be in your home county of residence.
The arbitration will take place in Lakeland, Florida, in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. Those rules are available at: http://www.adr.org.
This arbitration agreement is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and is enforceable pursuant to its terms on a self-executing basis. Either party may seek enforcement of this provision in any court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitrator shall determine any and all challenges to the arbitrability of a claim. The arbitral award will be judicially enforceable. Any court of competent jurisdiction may, and upon request shall, enter judgment on the arbitral award. Either party may seek confirmation (judgment on the award) and/or enforcement in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Both you and Vitality Farms Company waive the right to bring any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision brought by anyone else.
Notwithstanding any provision in the Consumer Arbitration Rules to the contrary, the arbitrator shall not have the authority or any jurisdiction to hear the arbitration as a class, consolidated, representative, or private attorney general action or to consolidate, join, or otherwise combine the claims of different persons into one proceeding. If a proposed class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action arbitration is initiated notwithstanding the above prohibition and it is finally determined by the arbitrator (or a court of competent jurisdiction) that the waiver specified herein is not enforceable, then the entirety of this Dispute Resolution procedure will be null and void.
Notwithstanding the foregoing binding arbitration procedure, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court (provided the claim otherwise qualifies for such program) as an alternative to proceeding with arbitration.
You may elect to opt out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding arbitration procedure and the class action waiver specified in these Terms and Conditions by doing the following. Within 15 days of creating your Vitality Farms Company account, you must send a letter to Vitality Farms Company, Attn: Legal Department, 331 S Florida Ave (Basement), Lakeland, Fl 33801 that specifies (1) your name, (2) your account member name, (3) your mailing address, and (4) your request to be excluded from the final, binding arbitration procedure and class action waiver specified in these Terms and Conditions. All other Terms and Conditions shall continue to apply to you and your account, including the requirement to participate in pre-dispute mediation. You are not required to send the letter by confirmed mail or return receipt requested, but it is recommended that you do so. Your request to be excluded will only be effective and enforceable only if you can prove that the request was postmarked within the applicable 15-day deadline.
Termination of Service
You agree that Vitality Farms Company may, without prior notice, immediately terminate, limit your access to, or suspend your account based on any of the following: (a) breach or violation of these Terms and Conditions; (b) upon request by law enforcement; (c) unforeseeable technical or security issues or problems; (d) extended periods of inactivity; or (e) fraudulent, deceptive, or illegal activity, or other activity which Home Chef believes is harmful to this Website or its business interests. You agree that termination, limitation of access and/or suspension will be made in Home Chef’s sole discretion and that Home Chef shall not be liable to you or any third party for the termination, limitation of access, and/or suspension of your account.
Upon termination you will no longer have a right to access your account or your User Content. We will not have any obligation to assist you in migrating your data or your User Content and we may not keep any back up of any of your User Content. We will not be responsible for deleting your User Content.
These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and Vitality Farms Company, and govern your use of the Website and purchases and subscriptions made thereon.
These Terms and Conditions supersede any prior agreements between you and us with respect to the Website and purchases made thereon.
We each acknowledge that, in entering into these Terms and Conditions, neither of us relies on any representation or warranty (whether made innocently or negligently) that is not set out in these terms and conditions or the documents referred to in them.
These Terms and Conditions and the rights, benefits and obligations contained herein are fully assignable by us and will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of our successors and assigns.
No party, nor any of the parties’ respective attorneys, will be deemed the drafter of these Terms and Conditions for purposes of interpreting any provision hereof in any judicial or other proceeding that may arise between the parties.
Except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms and Conditions, there will be no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms and Conditions. For the purpose of clarity, Vitality Farms Company representatives, officers, shareholders, subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, and agents are intended third-party beneficiaries.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms and Conditions.
Any failure by us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms and Conditions will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of any right or provision of these Terms and Conditions must be in writing.
If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the court should nevertheless endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms and Conditions remain in full force and effect.
The headings in these Terms and Conditions are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
Unless otherwise expressly stated herein, the laws of the United States of America and the laws of the State of Florida, without regard to the principles of conflicts of laws, will govern these Terms and Conditions, your use of the Website, and all matters relating to your access to, and/or use of, the Website, including all disputes between you and us. You also agree that the Website will be deemed solely based in Florida.
“Include,” “Includes,” “Including,” “include,” “includes,” and “including” herein mean including without limitation.
All notices given by you to us must be given to Vitality Farms Company at firstname.lastname@example.org We may give notice to you at either the e-mail or postal address you provide to us when placing an order, or in any of the ways specified herein. Notice will be deemed received and properly served immediately when posted on our Website, 24 hours after an e-mail is sent, or on the date of posting of any letter. In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an e-mail, that such e-mail was sent to the specified e-mail address of the addressee.
Terms and Conditions for Purchases/Subscriptions
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, WHEN YOU SIGN UP FOR A SUBSCRIPTION PLAN, YOU WILL BE CHARGED INITIALLY AND THEREAFTER ON A PERIODIC RECURRING BASIS (E.G., MONTHLY) AT THE THEN-CURRENT NON-PROMOTIONAL SUBSCRIPTION RATE FOR THE PRODUCTS TO BE OR ALREADY RECEIVED BY YOU. BY SIGNING UP FOR A SUBSCRIPTION, YOU AGREE TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALL RECURRING CHARGES PRIOR TO CANCELLATION.
You may modify your subscription (e.g., the number of containers per week or variety of microgreens), pause your subscription, skip a bi-week delivery, change your payment method or cancel your account at any time online (while logged into your account) or by sending a request by email to email@example.com Such requests will not affect charges submitted before Vitality Farms Company could reasonably act on such requests. If you pause your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. Your order is considered final by 12:00 p.m. Central Standard Time on the Friday before the following week’s delivery (the “Deadline”), and therefore you must pause, skip or cancel prior to the Deadline in order to not be charged for such order. You can resume or re-subscribe at any time after you pause your subscription or cancel your account, respectively, but we reserve the right not to permit re-subscription where we have previously elected to terminate your subscription.
We reserve the right in our absolute discretion not to renew your subscription at any time without giving any reasons for our decision.
After placing your first order through our standard order form on this Website, you will see in your online account profile how much you were charged for such order. You will be charged for subsequent orders at the Deadline for each such order, at which time each such order will be considered final. If you elect to skip a week or weeks, that does not permanently pause or cancel your subscription. If you do not return to the Website to skip additional weeks or take additional action, you will receive and be billed for the first week you have not skipped at 12:00 p.m. Central Standard Time on Friday before the following week’s delivery. Your order will cover only the Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in your account. We will not be obligated to supply any other Products that may have been part of your order unless the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate confirmation.
Vouchers and Gift Cards
We may offer gift cards, discount promotions, referral credits and other types of vouchers (“Voucher”) which must be activated by online application in order for the holder to commence delivery of Products through a service. If paid for, the Voucher is deemed to have been sold at the time of payment for it. All of these Terms and Conditions will become applicable as between us and the holder of the Voucher (“Holder”) when the Holder redeems the Voucher by applying for a service to commence.
A Voucher may be used only once by its Holder and may not be copied, reproduced, distributed, transferred, sold, or published either directly or indirectly in any form or stored in a data retrieval system without our prior written approval.
There is no cash value to any discount or referral credit received through a promotional offer. We reserve the right to withdraw or cancel any Voucher (other than a paid-up gift card) for any reason at any time.
Vouchers may be redeemed only through our Website and not through any other website or method of communication. To use your Voucher you will be required to enter its unique code at the online checkout and use of such code will be deemed to confirm your agreement to these Terms and Conditions and any special conditions attached to the Voucher.
Vouchers are subject to the terms and conditions thereon. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all promotional discounts may not be combined with any other offers, are valid for new customers only, and are limited to one per household address.
Risk and Title
Once the Products are delivered to you, ownership and the risk of loss passes to you. Following delivery, you, and not Vitality Farms Company, are solely responsible for the proper and safe washing, preparation, storage and cooking of the Products. By ordering any of our Products, you agree to use our Products at your own risk.
Price and Payment
The prices for our Products and delivery, if any, will be as quoted on this Website from time to time, except in cases of obvious error, and include applicable taxes. Our prices may change from time to time, but changes will apply only to orders that are confirmed after the changes are stated on our Website.
Payments must be made by credit or debit card. We accept American Express, Discover, Visa and MasterCard. We reserve the right to change the available payment methods at any time. When you sign up for a new subscription, we will immediately charge your credit or debit card. Thereafter, we will not charge your credit or debit card for a bi-weekly delivery until after the cancellation deadline for that particular delivery.
Although we make reasonable efforts to provide accurate pricing information and Product descriptions, pricing mistakes, typographical errors or mistakes regarding Product availability may occur. We reserve the right to correct such mistakes and errors. We cannot guarantee that information displayed on the Website is 100% accurate. If a Product is listed at an incorrect price or a Product description is inaccurate, we have the right, in our sole discretion, to reject any order or to cancel any orders placed for that Product. In those circumstances, if your credit card has already been charged, we will issue a credit to your credit card within a commercially reasonable amount of time.
We reserve the right to limit, in our sole discretion, the quantities of any product that may be purchased on a per person or per order basis.
Our Refund Policy
After you accept delivery of a Product from us, if you are not 100% satisfied with the Product (because it is defective or otherwise), you may request a Vitality Farms Company credit redeemable through your account for the future purchase of a Product of equal value thereto (a “Credit”) or a refund therefor within seven days of delivery by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org If part of a Product is defective, we reserve the right to decide in our discretion whether we will provide you with (A) a Credit or a refund in an amount equal to the value of the defective portion(s) or (B) a Credit or a full refund in an amount equal to the full value of the Product. The full refund option does not apply to orders larger than $100 and we reserve the right to reject requests deemed to be fraudulent.
If you refuse delivery of a Product from us because you skipped, paused or canceled the order prior to the Deadline for that order, and you are able to provide documentary evidence of such skip, pause or cancelation (for instance, a time-stamped email), we will process a Credit or a full refund (including any applicable delivery charges) as soon as practicable and, in any case, within 30 days of your cancelation request.
If you refuse delivery of a Product from us for any other reason, we will notify you within a reasonable period of time whether you are entitled to a Credit or a refund (and, if so, the amount) by phone or e-mail. If we determine that you are entitled to a Credit or a refund, we will process such Credit or refund within 30 days of communicating our decision to you.
We usually provide refunds using the same method that you used to pay for your purchase.
Limited Product Warranty; Product Disclaimers And Liability Limitation
We warrant to you that any Product purchased from us through this Website will, on delivery, conform with its description, be of satisfactory quality, and be reasonably fit for all the purposes for which products of that kind are commonly supplied. If you feel that we have not met the warranty in the previous sentence, you may request a refund pursuant to our refund policy, as outlined above.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THE PRECEDING PARAGRAPH, WE HEREBY DISCLAIM, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE WILL IN NO EVENT BE LIABLE FOR LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE PRODUCTS.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, OUR MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF THE PRODUCTS OR THIS WEBSITE WILL NOT EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCTS. THIS WILL CONSTITUTE OUR SOLE LIABILITY, IF ANY, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY.
Certain state laws may not allow limitations on implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the above disclaimers, exclusions or limitations may not apply to you and you may have additional rights. Nothing herein excludes or limits our liability for any matter for which it would be illegal for us to exclude or attempt to exclude our liability. The warranty disclaimers and liability limitations of this section do not apply to New Jersey subscribers.
Events Outside Our Control
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform or for any delay in performance of any of our obligations under an order that is caused by events outside our reasonable control (“Force Majeure Event”).
A Force Majeure Event includes any act, event, non-happening, omission or accident beyond our reasonable control and includes in particular (without limitation) the following:
- Strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action;
- Civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war;
- Fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster;
- Impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport;
- Impossibility of the use of public or private telecommunications networks; and
- The acts, decrees, legislation, regulations or restrictions of any government.
Our performance under any order is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable efforts to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under the order may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
Availability and Delivery
Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date provided in the confirmation or, if no delivery date is stated, then within 30 days of the date of the confirmation, absent the occurrence of a Force Majeure Event. If there is a Force Majeure Event, we are not liable for the cost of any compromised or failed deliveries; however, we reserve the right to refund you for all or part of any such compromised or failed deliveries as we see fit.
Food Safety Considerations
You are responsible for the safe handling of all Products made available through Vitality Farms Company websites upon delivery. We recommend immediately inspecting all Products you receive from us for any damage or other issues, and to determine freshness upon delivery.
To maintain the quality and safety of the Products, we recommend that you immediately, upon delivery, refrigerate all perishable Products upon delivery and follow all U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (“USDA”) guidelines on food safety for refrigerated/frozen storage and safe food handling. We also recommend that you wash all fresh produce under running water prior to using. Failure to follow safe food handling practices and temperature recommendations may increase the risk of foodborne illness. In addition, pregnant women, young children, the elderly and individuals with compromised immune systems should follow the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recommendations on food consumption for at-risk groups.
