You hereby authorize us to bill your payment method in accordance with the terms of the applicable payment plan until you terminate your account, and you further agree to pay any charges so incurred.

We may add new services for additional fees and charges, or add or amend fees and charges for existing services, at any time in our sole discretion. Any change to our pricing or payment terms shall become effective in the billing cycle following notice of such change to you as provided in these Terms.

The Services may offer an auto-renewing feature (“Membership”). If you enroll in a Membership, you are signing up to an auto-renewing subscription requiring recurring payments, you authorize us to store your payment method for the purpose of the auto-renewal transaction, and you agree to pay the then-current applicable fee and all taxes or possible transaction fees, and any other charges incurred in connection with your Membership and further agree and acknowledge that it will automatically renew, unless, prior to the end of the current period of effectiveness of your Membership: (a) you terminate your account; (b) you cancel your Membership (as described below); (c) we decline to renew your Membership; or (d) these Terms are otherwise properly terminated as expressly permitted herein.
Residents of the District of Columbia are not permitted to purchase a Membership. By enrolling in a Membership, you acknowledge and agree that you are not a resident of the District of Columbia. If you sign up for a Membership, you will be charged your first subscription fee and any applicable taxes on the date you purchase your subscription or, if your subscription includes a free trial, on the day after your free trial ends. If your subscription is based on intermediary provider billing, your provider will automatically charge your App Store account for the cost of the Membership and any applicable taxes. Your subscription will automatically continue at the interval you have selected, and you will continue to be charged at the then-current price (including any applicable taxes), until you cancel your subscription or we terminate it. You can find your Membership renewal/billing date in your account settings.
If your Membership includes a free trial, you will not be charged the applicable fee during your free trial. To obtain the free trial, you will be required to provide a credit card or other payment method in order to ensure uninterrupted access and continued use after the expiration of the free trial. Upon completion of your free trial, your subscription will automatically convert into a paid Membership and your payment method will be charged the applicable fee unless you have cancelled your subscription. You may cancel your Membership as described below. You may not receive a notice from us that your free trial has ended or that the paying portion of your Membership has begun unless required by applicable law. You are only permitted one free trial. If your Membership is ever terminated for any reason, and you purchase an additional Membership, you shall not be eligible for a free trial on any subsequent Membership.
If any fee is not paid in a timely manner, or we are unable to process your transaction using the payment method on file, and you do not promptly provide a new eligible payment method or bring your balance current within thirty (30) days after we provide you with notification that your account is in arrears, we reserve the right to suspend, disable, cancel or terminate your access to the Services or convert your Membership into a non-subscription account.
You may cancel your Membership via the settings menu within your iOS device or Google Play on your Android device. You may receive additional advice on cancelation by contacting Relish at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are enrolled in a monthly or other periodic payment plan and you decide to cancel during the Membership period, you acknowledge and agree that, unless otherwise agreed in writing, you must cancel your subscription before it renews to avoid billing of the next periodic subscription fees to your account. However, if you cancel a pre-paid Membership, you will not receive any refund, unless otherwise required by law. If you cancel your subscription, you will be able to use your Membership for the remainder of your pre-paid subscription term. YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FEE IS NONREFUNDABLE UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
Relish may change the Membership price or features from time to time at our discretion, and will communicate any price changes to you in advance. Price changes for Membership will take effect at the start of the next Membership period following the date of the price change. As permitted by applicable law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Services after the price change takes effect. If you do not wish to continue subscribing with the new fees or features, you have the right to reject the change by cancelling your Membership prior to the changes going into effect. Please therefore make sure you read any such notification of price changes carefully. If you accept the new Membership terms, those terms and conditions will apply for that renewal and all renewals going forward.
We may terminate your Membership in our sole discretion and without any notice. If we cancel your Membership, we will give you a prorated refund based on the amount of time remaining in your pre-paid subscription; provided, however, that we will not be obligated to grant you a refund if we terminate your account or your Membership because we determine, in our sole discretion, that your actions or your use of the Services violate these Terms or has harmed another user.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IN THIS SECTION (“ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”) CAREFULLY. IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE MOST DISPUTES WITH RELISH AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
Other than those matters described under ‘Exclusions from Arbitration’ below, you and we agree that all disputes, claims, or controversies arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms (including the validity, enforceability or scope of this Section), the Services or any content or services thereon (each, a “Dispute”), that cannot be resolved through negotiation in accordance with the ‘Notice of Dispute; Informal Dispute Resolution clause below, shall be settled by final binding arbitration, in accordance with the terms of this Section and to the extent permitted by law. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act applies to this agreement.
a) Exclusions from Arbitration
You and we agree that any claim filed by either party in small claims court is not subject to the arbitration terms contained in this Section. You and we also agree that disputes concerning patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets and claims of piracy or unauthorized use of the Services shall not be subject to arbitration, and the notice and good faith negotiation required by this Arbitration Agreement shall not apply to these types of disputes.
b) Right to Opt Out
If you do not wish to be bound by the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement, you must notify us in writing within 30 days of the date that you accept these Terms.

If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have with us, or may enter into in the future with us.
c) Notice of Dispute; Informal Dispute Resolution
If you have a dispute with us, you must send written notice to our legal department at the address above to give us the opportunity to resolve the dispute informally through negotiation.
You agree to negotiate resolution of the Dispute in good faith for no less than sixty (60) days after you provide notice of the Dispute. If we do not resolve your Dispute within sixty (60) days from receipt of notice of the Dispute, either party may pursue a claim in arbitration pursuant to the terms of this Section.
d) Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding
If you or we have a Dispute with such party elects to resolve through arbitration, the party initiating the arbitration proceeding shall initiate it with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules and procedures, as modified by this Section. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s site at www.adr.org. In addition to filing this form with the AAA in accordance with its rules and procedures, you must send a copy of the completed form to us at the following address to initiate arbitration proceedings: HelloRelish Ltd., 124 Palmer Avenue, Mamaroneck, NY 10543. If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If there is a conflict between the AAA rules (or the rules of the alternative arbitral forum selected by the parties) and the rules set forth in this Agreement, the rules set forth in this Agreement will govern. You may, in arbitration, seek any and all remedies otherwise available to you pursuant to your state’s law.
To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, Relish will pay the additional cost. Relish shall also bear the cost of any arbitration fees, unless the arbitrator finds your claims, defenses, or other fee-generating activity to be asserted or conducted for an improper purpose or frivolous. You are responsible for all other additional costs that you may incur in the arbitration including, without limitation, attorney’s fees and expert witness costs unless Relish is specifically required to pay such fees under applicable law.
If Relish’s or your claim is solely for monetary relief of $10,000 or less and does not include a request for any type of equitable remedy, the party bringing the claim may choose whether the arbitration of the claim will be conducted, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing under the AAA Rules, solely based on documents submitted to the arbitrator.
You and we agree to treat the arbitration proceedings and any related discovery confidential.
e) Location of Arbitration
The arbitration proceedings shall be held in New York County, New York, unless you can demonstrate that arbitration in New York County would create an undue burden to you. If you can demonstrate that arbitration in New York County would create an undue burden to you, we may allow you to initiate the arbitration in your home state.
f) Authority of Arbitrator
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Relish. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other proceedings or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim or dispute. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and this Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which any award (or decision not to render an award) is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator shall follow the applicable law. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
g) Waiver of Jury Trial
YOU AND RELISH HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT (OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT AS PERMITTED HEREIN) AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Relish are instead electing that all covered claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
h) Parents, Subsidiaries, Affiliates
This Arbitration Agreement will also apply to any claims asserted by you against any present or future parent, subsidiary, or affiliated company of Relish, or any employee, officer, director, or investor of Relish, and to any claims asserted by any of them against you, to the extent that any such claims arise out of or relate to this Agreement (such as with respect to their validity or enforceability), the Services, any person’s access to and/or use of the Services, and/or the provision of content, products, services, and/or technology on or through the Services.
i) Changes to This Section
Relish will provide thirty (30) days’ notice of any changes to this section by posting on the Relish website or app, sending you a message, or otherwise notifying you when you are logged into your Account. Amendments will become effective thirty (30) days after they are posted on Relish’ websites or sent to you.
Changes to this section will otherwise apply prospectively only to claims arising after the thirtieth (30th) day. If a court or arbitrator decides that this subsection on “Changes to This Section” is not enforceable or valid, then this subsection shall be severed from the section entitled “Arbitration and Class Action Waiver,” and the court or arbitrator shall apply the first Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section in existence after you began using the Website.
Subject to Section 18, if any clause within this Section is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Section, and the remainder of this Section will be given full force and effect.
k) Survival of Agreement
This Section shall survive any termination of the provision of the associated services to you.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
You and we agree that each of us may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless both you and we specifically agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate or join more than one person’s or party’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a consolidated, representative or class proceeding. Also, the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party’s individual claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other Services Users.
If any court or arbitrator determines that the class/consolidated/representative action waiver set forth in this section is void or unenforceable for any reason or that arbitration can proceed on a class, consolidated, or representative basis, then the disputes, claims, or controversies will not be subject to arbitration and must be litigated in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York or, if such court would not have jurisdiction over the matter, then in a New York state court sitting in the borough of Manhattan, City of New York.
If any clause within this Class Action Waiver Section is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that specific clause will be severed from this section, and the remainder of its provisions will be given full force and effect.
This Class Action Waiver Section will also apply to any claims asserted by you against any present or future parent, subsidiary or affiliated company of Relish, or any employee, officer, director, or investor of Relish, and to any claims asserted by any of them against you, to the extent that any such claims is a dispute.
This Class Action Waiver section shall survive any termination of your account or the Services.

We provide the services, its content and any services, including, without limitation, any sample document provided, displayed or generated by relish, on an “as is” and “as available” basis, without warranty of any kind whether express or implied (including warranties of merchantability, fitness for any particular purpose and non-infringement). This means that we make no promises that: the services will be available at any particular time; the services will meet any particular requirements or provide any particular results; the information on the services will be accurate or up-to-date; the services or the information transmitted to or from it or stored on it will be secure from unauthorized access; information and materials that you store in your account or on the site will remain retrievable and uncorrupted; or the services will be uninterrupted or error-free or will be free of viruses or other harmful components, or that defects will be corrected.

You should always consult with a qualified physician or other healthcare provider about your specific circumstances, including before starting any treatment, medical or otherwise.
If you purchase a product or service from a third party after following an ad or link on the services, or from another user on the services, the terms of sale for your purchase are between you and the third party from whom you made the purchase. We are not responsible for such third party products or services or for disputes between you and their sellers.
These disclaimers apply to us and our affiliated and related companies as well as third parties that are involved in the creation, production or distribution of the services, and any of their employees and agents.
Certain state laws do not allow limitations on implied warranties. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the foregoing disclaimers, exclusions and limitations may not apply to you, and you might have additional rights.
LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
In no event will we or any of our subsidiaries or other affiliates, or any of our or their directors, officers, employees, agents or content or service providers, be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, direct, indirect, special, incidental, consequential, exemplary or punitive damages) arising from, or directly or indirectly related to, the use of, or the inability to use, the services (or the content, materials and functions provided as part of the services), whether in an action of contract, negligence, or strict liability, even if we knew, should have known or had been advised of the possibility of such damages. Notwithstanding and without limiting the foregoing, you agree that our liability and the liability of our affiliates, and of any of our or their directors, officers, employees, agents or content or service providers, if any, arising out of any kind of legal claim in any way relating to the use of the services, will not exceed the amount you have actually paid to us, if any, for use of the services, or, if applicable, for use of the specific services feature or service from which the claim in question first arose.
Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of certain categories of damages, the above limitations may not apply to you. In such states, our liability and the liability of our affiliates, and our and their directors, officers, employees, agents or content or service providers, is limited to the fullest extent permitted by such state law. If you are a resident of New Jersey, this section does not apply to prevent a right to recover certain damages (including punitive damages) where a harmed person proves with the required evidence that the harm suffered was the result of the defendant’s “acts or omissions and such acts or omissions were actuated by actual malice or accompanied by a wanton and willful disregard of persons who foreseeably might be harmed by those acts or omissions.” Similarly, this section does not limit Relish’s tort liability under New Jersey law resulting from Relish’s own intentional or reckless conduct.
USERS WHO RESIDE IN THE UNITED KINGDOM OR EEA
We will only be liable in accordance with the statutory provisions for any damage caused intentionally or by gross negligence of our representatives or us. Our liability for slight negligence shall be limited to the amount of the foreseeable damages typical for this type of contract and shall only apply in case of a breach of a material contractual obligation.
