Nurturie reserves the right to change or modify these Terms at any time and in our sole discretion. Notice of any changes may be made by sending an email notification, providing notice through the Sites or updating the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of these Terms, such method of notice subject to Nurturie’s sole discretion. We encourage you to visit and review the Terms frequently to ensure that you understand the terms and conditions that apply when you access or use the Sites or order, receive or use the Products. If you do not agree to the revised Terms, you may not access or use the Sites or order, receive or use the Products.
All of our products and services are backed by a freshness and quality guarantee. If you are dissatisfied for any reason, we want to make it right. Just call us at 212-653-0859 or contact us via e-mail at email@example.com. Nurturie may require the return or photo documentation of the product with which you are dissatisfied before we substitute an acceptable item, issue a credit voucher or give you cash back.
The Sites are not targeted toward or intended for use by anyone under the age of 18. By using the Sites, 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 Sites, or engaged in any activity that could result in suspension or removal from the Sites, (d) do not have more than one Nurturie 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.
In order to access and use certain areas or features of the Sites, you will need to register for a Nurturie account. By creating an account, you agree that you are solely responsible for any authorized or unauthorized access to your account by any person. You agree to bear all responsibility for the confidentiality of your password and all use or charges incurred from use of the Sites with your password. You agree that you are responsible for, and agree to pay promptly, all charges to your account, including applicable taxes and purchases by you or anyone you allow to use your account and password to access the Nurturie. You agree to notify Nurturie promptly of any unauthorized use of your password and you will remain liable for any use of the Sites and access to the Products until you notify Nurturie of the unauthorized use of your password. By creating an account, you also agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete account information, and (b) maintain and promptly update from time to time as necessary your account information, including address, payment information, telephone number, and e-mail address. You can update your information in the Account area on our Web site or contact our Customer Service department. Please do not send credit card or other payment information via email. You will comply with all laws applicable to your activities associated with your Nurturie account, your Nurturie activities, and your purchases.
By creating a Nurturie account, you also consent to receive electronic communications from Nurturie (e.g., via email or by posting notices to the Sites). These communications may include notices about your account (e.g., payment authorizations, password changes and other transactional information). We may also send you promotional communications via email, including, but not limited to, newsletters, special offers, surveys and other news and information we think will be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving these promotional emails at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions provided therein. You agree that any electronic communication sent to you by Nurturie shall satisfy any legal obligation that notice be made in writing, whether set by statute or by contract. We advise that you save such notices, either in printed hard copy, or electronic form.
5.1. Pricing and Availability
At Nurturie we believe in offering our customers the best product at the best price. We strive to provide you with the freshest products to assure you the highest quality. Although our goal is to fulfill 100% of each order, given the perishable nature of our products, from time to time products may be unavailable due to market conditions beyond our control or to quality that is below our standards. At times, when we have an item that's very similar to the item you ordered, we may, and reserve the right to, make a substitution. If you're not happy with the replacement, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nurturie reserves the right to limit your order or the quantity of a particular product that you may order, as well as to reject all or part of an order, and/or to discontinue offering certain Products at any time.
All prices are shown in U.S. dollars and applicable taxes and other charges, if any, are additional. We reserve the right 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 order (discussed in Section 5.2, below), we will provide advance notice of such changes in accordance with Section 4. We will not, however, be able to notify you of changes in any applicable taxes. The shipment of meals to you after our delivery of such notice will confirm your acceptance of such changes.
5.2. Dietary Preferences and Restrictions
Nurturie uses USDA databased information concerning foods, information provided by manufacturers for prepared/prepackaged foods used in our recipes, and a reputable software service and database to create nutritional information published for and labeled on our meals. As such, Nurturie does not guarantee the accuracy of any nutritional information provided by Nurturie. Nurturie will not be responsible for any loss or damage resulting from your reliance on nutritional information, nor for ensuring that whatever foods you purchase and consume are in accordance with your respective dietary needs or restrictions. Nurturie stores, portions, and packs meals containing all eight (8) major US allergens (milk, wheat, egg, soy, fish, shellfish, peanuts, and treenuts). Although Nurturie takes precautions to limit the potential for cross-contamination, cross-contamination may occur between food products, allowing meals to contain any or all of these allergens. Nurturie also uses facilities which may not be a nut-free environment.
To receive delivery, you must live in a residential apartment or home, or receive permission from employer or business owner to receive shipments from a business address. Shipments may not be scheduled to business addresses for Saturday deliveries. Anyone at the delivery address who receives the delivery from Nurturie is conclusively presumed to be authorized to receive the delivery. If you, your doorman, and your alternate receiver are not present, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to contact you. In certain areas, Nurturie may offer unattended delivery.
If something is missing from your order, please call our Customer Service department at 212-653-0859 or email us at email@example.com.
5.3. Free Trials
From time to time, to the extent legally permitted, we may offer free trials of certain subscriptions for specified periods of time without payment. If we offer you a free trial, the specific terms of your free trial will be provided in the marketing materials describing the particular trial or at registration.
ONCE YOUR FREE TRIAL ENDS, WE (OR OUR THIRD PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR) WILL BEGIN BILLING YOUR DESIGNATED PAYMENT METHOD ON A RECURRING BASIS FOR YOUR SUBSCRIPTION (PLUS ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES) FOR AS LONG AS YOUR SUBSCRIPTION CONTINUES, UNLESS YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PRIOR TO THE END OF YOUR FREE TRIAL. INSTRUCTIONS FOR CANCELING YOUR SUBSCRIPTION ARE DESCRIBED IN SECTIONS 5.2 ABOVE. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A NOTICE FROM US THAT YOUR FREE TRIAL HAS ENDED OR THAT THE PAID PORTION OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION HAS BEGUN. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO MODIFY OR TERMINATE FREE TRIALS AT ANY TIME, WITHOUT NOTICE AND IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION.
5.4. 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 the total amount of your purchases (including any applicable taxes and other charges) (collectively, as applicable, an “Order”). Nurturie reserves the right to execute a $1 authorization or temporary charge on your credit card to verify that your account is valid and that the information you provide to Nurturie is correct. This authorization does not cost you anything and will expire in a few days (debit card authorizations typically expire in 24-48 hours depending on your bank's rules). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your Order may be suspended or cancelled. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your Order. Nurturie may charge a fee of $2 should a payment made via credit card be declined resulting in the need for alternate payment or exception processing. In the event you want to change or update payment information associated with your Nurturie account, you can do so at any time by logging into your account and editing your payment information.
You acknowledge that the amount billed may vary due to promotional offers, changes in applicable taxes or other charges, and you authorize us (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the corresponding amount.
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.
5.6. 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 display notice of the charges applicable to you before you make your purchase.
Generally, shipping is handled by Nurturie or by a third party courier. When you purchase a Product from Nurturie, or set a schedule for delivery of your purchase, any shipping times shown on the Sites are estimates only. Actual delivery times 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. This means that title to and the risk of loss of such Products passes to you upon our delivery of the Product to the third party courier.
Nurturie uses refrigerated shipping solutions to maintain the quality and integrity of your products. Nurturie uses third-party delivery companies to deliver meals to its customers. We carefully package each delivery to ensure that food products will remain fresh in your unopened delivery box. However, you as the customer are the ultimate arbiter of freshness and should always inspect your delivery bags to confirm the contents arrive fresh. 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 meal ingredients arrive in a cool, refrigerated condition. We recommend that you use a 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 and discard the item. 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 reheating 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 meal ingredients are packaged with insulated liners and gel packs and 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 meal ingredients prior to consumption. In certain areas, you may be able to provide additional delivery instructions when setting up your Nurturie 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 unforeseen delivery complications beyond our control, we will attempt to deliver your Order as soon as reasonably possible, but it may be necessary to make adjustments to our delivery schedule, which will cause us to suspend chosen delivery dates and times. In some cases, delivery may occur prior to the scheduled delivery date. In the event that timely delivery of your meal is not feasible, we will cancel your meal delivery for the period so affected and issue you a credit or refund of the purchase price for that meal delivery.
5.8. No Resale
You are not permitted to resell or otherwise use the Products for commercial purposes.
5.9. Returns and Refunds
If you are dissatisfied with a meal for any reason relating to the quality of the product and delivery service, please contact us at email@example.com within seven (7) days of the date you received the meal and we will either replace the meal at our expense or, depending on the circumstances, provide you a full or partial credit or refund of the purchase price for that meal. We may require the return or photographic documentation of any meal ingredient with which you are dissatisfied before we provide you a replacement, credit or refund.

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.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH NURTURIE AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.

Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) arising out of or related to a violation of Section 10 or Disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and Nurturie agree (a) to waive your and Nurturie’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to these Terms, or the Sites, Content or Products, resolved in a court, and (b) to waive your and Nurturie’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and Nurturie agree to arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which 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).
19.2. No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions
You and Nurturie agree that any Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or the Sites, Content or Products is personal to you and Nurturie and that such Dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. You and Nurturie 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. Further, you and Nurturie agree that a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.
19.3. Federal Arbitration Act
You and Nurturie agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 18 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.
19.4. Notice; Informal Dispute Resolution
You and Nurturie agree that each party will notify the other party in writing of any arbitrable or 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 informally. Notice to Nurturie shall be sent by certified mail or courier to Nurturie, LLC, Attn: Anthony Hilton, Esq. Attorney at Law, 141 E. 89th Street, New York, NY 10128. Your notice must include (a) your name, postal address, telephone number, the email address you use or used for your Nurturie 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, and (c) the specific relief that you are seeking. Our notice to you will be sent electronically in accordance with Section 3 and will include (x) our name, postal address, telephone number and an email address at which we can be contacted with respect to the Dispute, (y) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (z) the specific relief that we are seeking. If you and Nurturie cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date notice is received by the applicable party, then either you or Nurturie may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 18, commence an arbitration proceeding or, to the extent specifically provided for in Section 18.1, file a claim in court.
Except for Disputes arising out of or related to a violation of Section 10 or Disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and Nurturie agree that any Dispute must be commenced or filed by you or Nurturie within one (1) year of the date the Dispute arose, otherwise the underlying claim is permanently barred (which means that you and Nurturie will no longer have the right to assert such claim regarding the Dispute). You and Nurturie agree that (a) any arbitration will occur in the State of New York, County of New York, Borough of Manhattan, (b) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are hereby incorporated by reference, and (c) that the state or federal courts of the State of New York and the United States, respectively, sitting in the State of New York, County of New York, Borough of Manhattan, have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. You may also litigate a Dispute in the small claims court located in the county of your billing address if the Dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court.
19.6. Authority of Arbitrator
As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the applicable JAMS rules, the arbitrator will have (a) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of 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.
19.7. Rules of JAMS
The rules of JAMS and additional information about JAMS are available on the JAMS website. By agreeing to be bound by these Terms, you either (a) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS, or (b) waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
If any term, clause or provision of this Section 18 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 18 will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in Section 18.2 are severable from the other provisions of these Terms and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law.
19.9. 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 18 by writing to: Nurturie, Inc., Attn: Anthony Hilton, Esq. Attorney at Law, 141 E. 89th Street, New York, NY 10128. 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 19.
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 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 the United States, respectively, sitting in the State of New York, County of New York, Borough of Manhattan.
Notwithstanding anything contained in these Terms, we reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your right to access or use 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 we 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 us, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
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.
The following sections will survive the expiration or termination of these Terms and the termination of your Nurturie account: all defined terms and Sections 1, 3, 4, 5 (first paragraph only), 6, 7, 8, 9 (second paragraph only), 9 through 24.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Nurturie, 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 Nurturie. No waiver of any provision of these Terms will constitute a waiver of such provision in any prior, concurrent or subsequent circumstance, and Nurturie’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.
