TERMS OF USE

 

Last Updated: January 5, 2016

Welcome to Homemade!  These Terms of Use (these "Terms" or the "Agreement") are important and govern your use and access of http://www.gethomemade.co/ (the “Website”), the Homemade mobile application (the “App”), and the services they provide, (together the “Service”). 

Grazer Labs, Inc., d/b/a Homemade, or our subsidiaries or other affiliates (collectively, "Homemade", “We”, or “Us”) connects local chefs (each a "Chef") with users (collectively “Members”) through an online platform (the "Services") allowing Chefs to provide information about meal and food items (the “Meals”) and users to purchase and pickup or have delivered the Meals prepared by Chefs. By using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms and all of the terms incorporated herein by reference.  If you do not agree to these Terms, you must not access or use the Services.

These Terms expressly supersede any prior agreements or arrangements with you. Homemade may immediately terminate these Terms or any Services with respect to you, or generally cease offering or deny access to the Services or any portion thereof, at any time, for any reason or no reason.

Homemade may amend the Terms related to the Services from time to time. Amendments will be effective upon Homemade posting such updated Terms at this location or the amended policies or supplemental terms on our Services. Your continued access or use of the Services after such posting constitutes your consent to be bound by the Terms, as amended.

THE SERVICES COMPRISE AN ONLINE PLATFORM THROUGH WHICH LOCAL CHEFS MAY CREATE MEAL LISTINGS AND USERS MAY LEARN ABOUT THE MEAL LISTINGS AND SCHEDULE PURCHASE AND PICKUP OR DELIVERY OF THE MEAL(S).  YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT HOMEMADE DOES NOT PROVIDE FOOD SERVICES OR FUNCTIONS AS A BUSINESS THAT SELLS FOOD AND BEVERAGES.  YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT HOMEMADE IS NOT A PARTY TO ANY AGREEMENT ENTERED INTO BETWEEN CHEFS AND USERS.  HOMEMADE HAS NO CONTROL OVER THE CONDUCT OF CHEFS, USERS AND HOMEMADE ACCOUNT HOLDERS OF THE SERVICES AND DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY IN THIS REGARD TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

CHEFS SHOULD UNDERSTAND HOW THE LAWS, RULES AND/OR REGULATIONS WORK IN THEIR RESPECTIVE STATES AND CITIES (COLLECTIVELY, "JURISDICTIONS").  SOME JURISDICTIONS HAVE LAWS, RULES AND/OR REGULATIONS THAT MAY LIMIT A CHEF'S ABILITY TO PROVIDE MEALS AND/OR FOOD SERVICES.  THESE LAWS, RULES AND/OR REGULATIONS CAN BE PART OF A JURISDICTION'S ADMINISTRATIVE, AGRICULTURE AND/OR HEALTH CODES.  IN MANY JURISDICTIONS, CHEFS MUST REGISTER, GET A PERMIT, AND/OR OBTAIN A LICENSE BEFORE PROVIDING MEALS OR ENGAGING IN AND/OR PROVIDING THE SERVICES.  CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS MAY PROHIBIT CHEFS FROM ENGAGING IN AND/OR PROVIDING THESE SERVICES ALTOGETHER.  STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS VARY GREATLY IN HOW THEY ENFORCE THESE LAWS, RULES AND/OR REGULATIONS. PENALTIES MAY INCLUDE FINES OR OTHER ENFORCEMENT. CHEFS SHOULD REVIEW ALL STATE AND LOCAL LAWS, RULES AND REGULATIONS BEFORE USING THE SERVICES.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, BY ACCESSING OR USING THE WEB SITE, APP OR SERVICES OR BY DOWNLOADING OR POSTING ANY CONTENT FROM OR ON THE WEB SITE, VIA THE APPLICATION OR THROUGH THE SERVICES, YOU ARE INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE READ, AND THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE REGISTERED WITH THE SERVICE OR HAVE A HOMEMADE ACCOUNT.  IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, THEN YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO ACCESS OR USE THE WEB SITE, APP AND SERVICES.

You acknowledge and agree that you alone are responsible for any and all Meals that you provide through the Web Site, App and Services.  Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Meal you post and any Meal provided by Chef via the Web Site, App and Services will be in compliance with all applicable laws, tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Meals listed or included via the Service, Web Site and App that you post (including having all required permits, licenses and registrations).  Please note that Homemade assumes no responsibility for a Chef's compliance with any agreements with or duties to third parties, applicable laws, rules and regulations.   You acknowledge and agree that as a Chef you are responsible for your own acts and omissions.  Homemade reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Meals posted for any reason, including Meal postings that Homemade, in its sole discretion, considers objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to the Web Site, App or Services.

 

PRIVACY POLICY

Please refer to our Privacy Policy here (http://www.gethomemade.co/privacy) for information about how we collect, use and disclose information about you.

 

ELIGIBILITY

The Services are not targeted toward or intended for use by anyone under the age of 18. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you (a) are 18 years of age or older, (b) are a legal resident of the United States, (c) have not been previously suspended or removed from the Services, or engaged in any activity that could result in suspension or removal from the Services, (d) do not have more than one Homemade Account, and (e) have full power and authority to enter into these Terms and in so doing will not violate any other agreement to which you are a party.

 

TERMS OF SALE

You must not use the Service for any unlawful purpose.  All information you provide through your Homemade Account, whether on our Services or to a third party, must be truthful, accurate and current.  You shall correct any information that is no longer accurate or current.  You must not “stalk” or otherwise harass another Member or any other person.  You must not impersonate any person or entity or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity.

Homemade makes a significant effort to require Chefs to describe each Meal accurately on our Services.  However, since the Meals are prepared by Chefs and not Homemade, occasionally a Meal that you receive may not look or taste exactly how it was described or depicted to you.  You understand that this is normal, and you agree to accept such a Meal, regardless of variation from its description or depiction.  We cannot and do not guarantee the accuracy of any description or depiction of any Meal.  We reserve the right to change or update any such description or depiction and to correct errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time without giving you notice.

Homemade does not endorse any Chef or Meal and Homemade does not represent that a Meal is suitable or safe for your consumption.  By using the Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Member or other third parties who caused you harm.  You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from Homemade with respect to such actions or omissions.

GENERAL DISCLAIMERS

HOMEMADE IS ONLY RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING THE WEB SITE, APP AND THE SERVICES UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT.  HOMEMADE SHALL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO ANY MEALS THAT YOU ORDER THROUGH THE SERVICE.

ALL MEALS ARE PROVIDED BY CHEFS WHO USE OUR SERVICES.  HOMEMADE DOES NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES REGARDING THE QUALITY OF ANY CHEF OR MEAL. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR VERIFYING THE MEALS, THEIR CONTENTS AND/OR INGREDIENTS, AND THE WAY IN WHICH THEY ARE PREPARED AND YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR KNOWING ABOUT ANY FOOD ALLERGIES YOU MAY HAVE BEFORE HANDLING, USING OR CONSUMING SUCH MEALS.  HOMEMADE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY ILLNESS OR OTHER RESULTS OR DAMAGES CAUSED BY THE CONSUMPTION OF ANY MEAL, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DEATH, BODILY INJURY OR HEALTH PROBLEMS, OR ANY OTHER NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE WITH ANY MEALS ORDERED THROUGH THE SERVICE. WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THE FOREGOING.

WE REQUIRE CHEFS TO DISPLAY THE MATERIALS, INGREDIENTS AND INFORMATION YOU VIEW ON OUR SERVICES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, INGREDIENTS, AS ACCURATELY AS POSSIBLE.  HOWEVER, WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THE ACCURACY OF SUCH MATERIALS, INGREDIENTS AND INFORMATION AND ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CLAIMS ARISING OR RESULTING FROM YOUR RELIANCE THEREON. 

YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT THE MEALS YOU RECEIVE IN YOUR ORDER MAY VARY FROM THE MATERIALS AND/OR INGREDIENTS DISPLAYED ON OUR SERVICES DUE TO A NUMBER OF FACTORS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, SYSTEM CAPABILITIES AND CONSTRAINTS OF YOUR MOBILE DEVICE, THE AVAILABILITY AND VARIABILITY OF MEALS AND/OR INGREDIENTS, DISTINCT COOKING OR OTHER PREPARATION METHODS USED BY THE CHEFS.  THE SERVICES MAY CONTAIN INFORMATION ABOUT MEALS THAT ARE NOT AVAILABLE IN EVERY LOCATION.  A REFERENCE TO A MEAL ON OUR SERVICES DOES NOT IMPLY OR GUARANTEE THAT IT IS OR WILL BE AVAILABLE IN YOUR LOCATION AT THE TIME OF YOUR ORDER. 

ALL SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.  HOMEMADE DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT AS TO THE WEB SITE, APP, CONTENT, SERVICES, MATERIALS AND MEALS, ANY WARRANTIES THAT ARISE FROM TRADE USAGE OR CUSTOM, AND ANY WARRANTIES THAT THE WEBSITE, APP OR SERVICES WILL BE FREE AND CLEAR FROM ANY ADVERSE LIEN OR SECURITY INTERESTS.

NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED FROM HOMEMADE, OR THROUGH THE WEB SITE, APP, CONTENT, SERVICES, MATERIALS OR MEAL, WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE HEREIN.

 

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY; RELEASE

NEITHER HOMEMADE NOR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, PREPARING AND/OR DELIVERING THE SERVICES OR MEALS WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, APP OR IN CONSUMPTION OF MEALS, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT WE HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE, EVEN IF A LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

IN NO EVENT WILL HOMEMADE'S TOTAL LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, OR FROM ANY MEALS YOU HAVE RECEIVED EXCEED (I)  THE AMOUNTS YOU HAVE PAID TO HOMEMADE FOR USE OF OUR SERVICES OR (II) ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100), IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD ANY PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS TO HOMEMADE, AS APPLICABLE.

LIMITATION ON TIME TO COMMENCE ACTION, JURISDICTION AND ARBITRATION

You agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to these Terms and our Services must commence by you within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, your ability to bring any case or cause or action against Homemade shall be permanently barred.  Nothing herein shall be deemed to limit the period during which Homemade may bring any cause of action arising out of this Agreement against you.  These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of New York and the United States of America, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of each party and its successors, assigns and agents. Homemade may assign its rights and duties under this Agreement to any of its subsidiaries or affiliates without giving you notice or to any other entity upon prior written notice to you.

The arbitrator does not have the power to vary these provisions.

 

 

GOVERNING LAW AND VENUE

These Terms, your access to and use of the Services shall be governed and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of the State of New York 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, shall be resolved in the state or federal courts of the State of New York and United States, respectively, sitting in the State of New York, County of New York, Borough of Manhattan.

MISCELLANEOUS

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Homemade relating to your access to and use of our Services. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without the prior written consent of Homemade. No waiver of any provision of these Terms will constitute a waiver of such provision in any prior, concurrent or subsequent circumstance, and Homemade'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.
