(a) PLANS. United Harvest is a subscription service where we offer various subscription plans for the recurring delivery of our Products (each purchase of any such plan, a “Subscription”) and may offer add-on or one-time Products for sale. Our Product offerings and available Subscription plans are described on our website and mobile application, as applicable, at the time of purchase, and are subject to change at any time prior to purchase.
(b) AUTOMATIC RENEWAL OF SUBSCRIPTION. WHEN YOU PURCHASE A MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT (A) UNITED HARVEST (OR OUR THIRD PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR) IS AUTHORIZED TO CHARGE YOU ON A MONTHLY BASIS FOR THE PRICE OF YOUR CHOSEN SUBSCRIPTION (IN ADDITION TO ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES SET FORTH DURING THE PURCHASE PROCESS) FOR AS LONG AS YOUR SUBSCRIPTION CONTINUES, AND (B) YOUR SUBSCRIPTION IS CONTINUOUS UNTIL YOU CANCEL IT OR WE SUSPEND OR TERMINATE THE SUBSCRIPTION. INSTRUCTIONS FOR CANCELING YOUR SUBSCRIPTION ARE DESCRIBED IN SECTION 4.1(c) BELOW. THE INITIAL MONTHLY RECURRING CHARGES FOR YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL BE SET FORTH DURING THE PURCHASE PROCESS. THE AMOUNT YOU ARE CHARGED MAY VARY DEPENDING ON THE PREFERENCES YOU SELECT, AND WE MAY ADJUST SUCH RECURRING CHARGES FROM TIME TO TIME IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 4.4 BELOW.
(c) CANCELLATION POLICY. YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME PRIOR TO THE ORDER INVOICE DATE BY EMAILING email@example.com. IF CANCELLATION OCCURS AFTER THE INVOICE DATE THE CANCELLATION REQUEST WILL BE PROCESSED FOR THE NEXT SCHEDULED INVOICE. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL CHARGES (INCLUDING ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES) INCURRED WITH RESPECT TO ANY ORDER PROCESSED PRIOR TO THE CANCELLATION OF YOUR MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION.
4.2 Gifts. You may have the ability from time to time to purchase Subscriptions for other people through the Services (“Gifts”). Gifts are not refundable or redeemable for cash, unless required by applicable law. Gifts must be redeemed for purchases through the Services in accordance with our then-current procedures for redemption, which may require the recipient to create their own account and agree to these Terms in order to redeem the Gift. GIFTS THAT ARE MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTIONS ARE SUBJECT TO THE AUTO RENEWAL TERMS IN 4.1(b) AND THE CANCELLATION POLICY IN 4.1(c).
4.3 Payment and Billing Information. By providing a credit card or other payment method that we accept, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize us (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method for all charges you incur for the purchase of any Subscriptions or other Products (including any applicable taxes and other charges) (each such purchase, an “Order”). You are responsible for, and agree to pay, all such charges. If we or our third party payment processor cannot obtain authorization for charges to your payment method or if any amounts you authorize us to charge to your payment method are reversed or charged back for any reason, we may, at our option, in addition to any other remedies: cancel or suspend any undelivered portion of your Orders, make second and/or subsequent attempts to charge your payment method, and/or use any other lawful means to collect payment on any outstanding amounts due to us. You will remain responsible to pay all applicable charges for all Orders. You agree to provide and keep current a valid payment method. However, your failure to do so shall not constitute cancellation of any Order. In the event you want to change or update payment information associated with your United Harvest account, you can do so at any time by logging into your account and editing your payment information.
4.4 Pricing and Availability. All prices shown via the Services are in U.S. dollars. Any applicable taxes and other charges, if any, are additional. We reserve the right to change our Subscription and other Product offerings, and to adjust prices as we may determine in our sole discretion, at any time and without notice; provided, however, that if we change the amounts or other charges associated with your then-current Subscription(s), we will provide advance notice of such changes via one of the means described in Section 3. We will not, however, be able to notify you of changes in any applicable taxes prior to such changes becoming effective. The shipment of Products to you after our delivery of such notice will confirm your acceptance of such changes, unless you cancel your subscription(s) in accordance with the cancellation policy set forth in Sections 4.1(c).
4.5 Substitutions. All of our Products are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any Order, to reject all or part of an Order, to discontinue offering certain Products and to substitute Products (including, but not limited to, specific ingredients or entire shipments) without prior notice. We strive to provide you with high-quality Products, and given the perishable nature of certain Products and market conditions beyond our control, we may be required to make substitutions from time to time. If you are not satisfied with a substitution, please contact us at customerservice@UnitedHarvest.com
4.6 Taxes. We will collect applicable sales tax on Products shipped to the states for which we determine we have a duty to collect sales tax. If an item is subject to sales tax, you agree that the amount of taxes shown at checkout may be adjusted. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates.
4.7 Shipping and Handling. You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown at the time you make a purchase. We reserve the right to increase, decrease, add or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time, but we will provide notice of the charges applicable to you before you make your purchase. Generally, shipping is handled by GSO/GLS, FedEx, and UPS, however we reserve the right to use other shipping couriers as needed. Actual delivery dates may vary. You agree that you will not obtain, or direct shipment of, a Product for export. All Products purchased from us are made pursuant to a shipment contract.
4.8 Deliveries. You are responsible for inspecting all Products you receive from us for any damage or other issues upon delivery. In addition, you are solely responsible for determining the freshness of the Products you receive. You should always inspect your delivery to confirm that the ingredients arrive in a cool, refrigerated condition. We recommend that you use a food thermometer to ensure that the temperature zone within the container in which any meat, poultry or seafood Product is located is 40° F or below. In the unlikely event that such temperature zone is above 40°F, or you have any other reason to believe that any other Product in your delivery is not suitable for consumption, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (attaching photos of the item(s)) and discard the item(s). To maintain the quality and integrity of the Products, we recommend that you immediately refrigerate all perishable Products upon delivery and follow the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (“USDA”) instructions on refrigeration and food safety, which can be found here. From the time of delivery, the condition and consumption of the Products are solely at your risk, and you are solely responsible for the proper and safe washing, handling, preparation, storage, cooking, use and consumption of the Products following delivery. We recommend that you follow the USDA’s instructions on safe food handling, which can be found here. We also recommend that all cooking instructions be followed and that you use a food thermometer to ensure that all meat, poultry, seafood and other applicable items are cooked to the USDA’s recommended internal temperatures, which can be found here. 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, which can be found here. If you are not at home when your delivery arrives, the courier will generally leave the package for you at your door. Our ingredients are frozen and individually packaged and labeled. The ingredients are placed inside boxes that feature inbuilt insulation specially designed to keep meat within the optimal temperature range, with dry ice if necessary. The amount of dry ice is carefully calculated based on your geographic location/guaranteed courier delivery time. When retrieved on the guaranteed delivery date, dry ice may be completely evaporated. Your order will typically remain cold and fresh for several hours, but depending on the season and temperature in your geographic area at the time of delivery, advance planning by you should be made for proper storage of your ingredients prior to consumption. In certain areas, you may be able to provide additional delivery instructions when setting up your United Harvest account, such as requesting that your delivery be left with a doorman or neighbor. Any individual at the delivery address who accepts a delivery from us is presumed to be authorized to receive such delivery. In cases in which you have designated an alternative receiver, such person shall accept the delivery under all of the same terms and conditions that would apply had you accepted the delivery yourself. In the case of inclement weather or other events beyond our control that interfere with our ability to deliver your Order, we will attempt to deliver your Order as soon as reasonably possible. In the event of a courier delay, please inspect the contents carefully and email email@example.com immediately with any concerns (attaching photos for review). In some cases, delivery may occur prior to the scheduled delivery date. In the event that timely delivery of your ingredients is not feasible, we will cancel your delivery for the period so affected and issue you a credit or refund of the purchase price for that delivery.

(v) When placing your order, please enter your shipping address carefully to ensure accuracy and review your receipt/account for any errors. If you enter the shipping address incorrectly when the order is placed, please email email@example.com immediately for correction.

(vi) If your order is returned to us because of an incorrect address provided or refusal of delivery when shipped according to our terms and conditions, we must dispose of the contents and you will not be refunded.

(c) Return/Refund Policy for Courier Damaged Products.
(i) We strive to provide a great selection of quality Product delivered to your door every month and guarantee that your order will arrive in great condition when delivered to the address on file and retrieved on the guaranteed delivery date.

We ask that you please email email@example.com within three (3) days of receipt, provide a description of the damage, and a photo(s) of the order in the state it was received. Claim filing is time sensitive and photos are required in order to show proof of damage.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL UNITED HARVEST NOR ANY DISCLAIMING PARTY, BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF REVENUE, INCOME OR PROFITS, LOSS OF USE OR DATA, LOSS OR DIMINUTION IN VALUE OF ASSETS OR SECURITIES, OR DAMAGES FOR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE ACCESS OR USE OF THE SITES OR CONTENT OR THE ORDER, RECEIPT OR USE OF ANY PRODUCT OR OTHERWISE RELATED TO THESE TERMS (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY DAMAGES CAUSED BY OR RESULTING FROM RELIANCE BY ANY USER ON ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM UNITED HARVEST, OR FROM MISTAKES, OMISSIONS, INTERRUPTIONS, DELAYS OR INTERRUPTIONS IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE DELETION OR CORRUPTION OF DATA / FILES OR EMAILS, ERRORS, DEFECTS, BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, DELAYS IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION OR ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, WHETHER OR NOT RESULTING FROM ACTS OF GOD, DISEASES, GOVERNMENTAL ORDER(S) OR DIRECTIVE(S), REGULTORY CHANGE(S), EXECUTIVE ORDER(S), EMERGENCY ORDER(S), COMMUNICATIONS FAILURE, THEFT, DESTRUCTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO UNITED HARVEST’S RECORDS, PROGRAMS OR SYSTEMS), REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, SIMPLE NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE OR IMPUTED), STRICT PRODUCT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (EVEN IF THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES WERE FORESEEABLE).
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL THE MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF UNITED HARVEST, ANY DISCLAIMING PARTY, (JOINTLY) ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO (A) THE ORDER, RECEIPT OR USE OF PRODUCTS PURCHASED FROM THE UNITED HARVEST MARKET EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID FOR SUCH PRODUCTS; AND (B) THE ORDER, RECEIPT OR USE OF INGREDIENTS, OR ACCESS OR USE OF THE SITES OR CONTENT, EXCEED THE GREATER OF $250 OR THE AMOUNT YOU PAID TO US IN THE ONE (1) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE DATE ON WHICH YOUR CLAIM AROSE. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY EVEN IN THE EVENT YOUR REMEDIES HEREUNDER FAIL OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE, AND THE FOREGOING SHALL CONSTITUTE UNITED HARVEST’S AND THE DISCLAIMING PARTIES’ SOLE LIABILITY AND OBLIGATION IN RESPECT HEREOF, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, SIMPLE NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE OR IMPUTED), STRICT PRODUCT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. Some jurisdictions also limit disclaimers or limitations of liability for personal injury from consumer products, so this limitation may not apply to personal injury claims.
EVEN IF UNITED HARVEST HAS BEEN ADVISED OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL APPLY TO ALL CONTENT, PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITES.
14 Dispute Resolution; Arbitration. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES EACH OF US TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH WE CAN SEEK RELIEF UNDER THESE TERMS. IN PARTICULAR, WE EACH AGREE TO GIVE UP OUR RIGHT TO BRING CERTAIN DISPUTES BEFORE A JURY OR RESOLVE CERTAIN CLAIMS IN COURT OR AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS PROCEEDING.
14.1 (A) Binding Arbitration. For any dispute arising out of or in any way connected with or related to these Terms, Sites, Content, or Products, except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or seeking injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of Content, including, without limitation, intellectual property, business plans, marketing, know-how, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents (each, a “Dispute”), to the extent permitted by applicable law, you and UNITED HARVEST agree (a) to waive your and UNITED HARVEST’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes resolved in a court, tribunal, or venue and (b) to waive your and UNITED HARVEST’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and UNITED HARVEST agree to arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration. Arbitration is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court.
(B)For purposes of clarification, and without limiting the foregoing, this arbitration agreement covers any dispute arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, even if the claim arises or may arise before or after the term.
(C) Notwithstanding the arbitration agreement set forth in this Article 14, if you fail to pay in full any amounts you owe when they are due, United Harvest may assign your account for collection, and United Harvest and/or the collection agency may pursue in court claims limited to the collection of past due amounts and any interest or cost of collection permitted by law or these Terms. (However, United Harvest disclaims any and all liability, and you relieve United Harvest from any and all liability, with respect to the conduct of any such collection agency.) In addition, United Harvest may seek injunctive relief in any court with respect to any violation of a patent, trademark, service mark, copyright, trade secret, and/or other intellectual property rights of United Harvest or of any third party.
14.2 No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you and UNITED HARVEST agree that any Dispute IS PERSONAL TO YOU AND UNITED HARVEST, AND THAT ANY DISPUTE SHALL BE RESOLVED SOLELY THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND WILL NOT BE BROUGHT AS A CLASS ARBITRATION, CLASS ACTION OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you and UNITED HARVEST agree that there will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF WARRANTED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM.
14.3 Federal Arbitration Act. You and UNITED HARVEST agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 14 shall be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
14.4 Notice; Informal Dispute Resolution. You and UNITED HARVEST agree that each party will notify the other party in writing of any Dispute or any small claims dispute within thirty (30) days of the date it arises, so that the parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute or small claims dispute informally. Notice to UNITED HARVEST shall be sent by certified mail registered receipt requested or by nationally recognized courier with receipt to UNITEDHARVEST.COM, LLC Attn: Legal Notices, 718 UNIVERSITY AVE, Suite 116, Los Gatos, CA 95032 and you must allow United Harvest a reasonable opportunity to resolve any such dispute or claim. Your notice must include (a) your name, postal address, telephone number, the email address you use or used for your United Harvest account and, if different, an email address at which you can be contacted, (b) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute or small claims dispute, and (c) the specific relief that you are seeking. If you and United Harvest cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute or small claims dispute within thirty (30) days after the date notice is received by the applicable party, then either you or United Harvest may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 14, commence an arbitration proceeding.
14.5 Process. You and United Harvest agree that any Dispute or small claims dispute must be commenced or filed by you or United Harvest within one (1) year of the date the Dispute or small claims dispute arose, otherwise the underlying claim is permanently barred (which means that you and United Harvest will no longer have the right to assert such claim regarding the Dispute or small claims dispute). You and United Harvest agree that (a) the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside, (b) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator with expertise in consumer disputes in the food industry, and in accordance with the rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are explained in more detail in Section 14.7 below and hereby incorporated by reference, and upon award of the arbitration determination, that the state or federal courts of the State of California and the United States, respectively, sitting in the State of California, County of Santa Clara, City of Los Gatos, have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. The decisions of the arbitrator will be binding and conclusive on all parties. Judgment upon any award of the arbitrator may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. This provision will be specifically enforceable in any court. THE ARBITRATOR MUST FOLLOW THIS AGREEMENT AND CAN AWARD THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT (INCLUDING ATTORNEYS' FEES).
As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS rules referenced in Sections 14.5 and 14.7, the arbitrator will have (a) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of the scope of this arbitration agreement and whether a Dispute is arbitrable, and (b) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
14.6 Rules of JAMS. The arbitration will be administered by JAMS in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules (the “JAMS Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The JAMS Rules are available at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/#Rule-16-1.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section. To the extent there are any conflicts between the JAMS Rules and these Terms, the Terms will control.
14.7 Severability. If any term, clause or provision of this Section 14 is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by law, and all other terms, clauses and provisions of this Section 14 will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in Section 14.2 are severable from the other provisions of these Terms and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law.
14.8 Opt-Out Right. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 14 by writing to: UnitedHarvest.com, LLC Attn General Counsel, 718 University Ave, Suite 116, Los Gatos, CA 95032. In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 15.
15 Governing Law and Venue. These Terms, your access to and use of the Sites, and your order, receipt and use of the Products shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict-of-law rules or principles (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any Dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court pursuant to Section 14 shall be resolved in the state or federal courts of the State of California and the United States, respectively, sitting in the State of California, County of Santa Clara, City of Los Gatos.
16 Termination. Notwithstanding anything contained in these Terms, we reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your access or use of the Sites and to order, receive and use the Products, at any time and for any or no reason, and you acknowledge and agree that United Harvest shall have no liability or obligation to you in such event and that you will not be entitled to a refund of any amounts that you have already paid, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
17 Severability. If any term, clause or provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, then that term, clause or provision will be severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining part of that term, clause or provision, or any other term, clause or provision of these Terms.
18 Survival. The following sections will survive the expiration or termination of these Terms and the termination of your United Harvest account: all defined terms and Sections 1; 4 -15; and 17-19.
19 Miscellaneous. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and United Harvest relating to your access to and use of the Sites and your order, receipt and use of Products. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without the prior written consent of United Harvest. No waiver of any provision of these Terms will constitute a waiver of such provision in any prior, concurrent or subsequent circumstance, and United Harvest’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
