The Website and the The Grubbies Services
The Website and the The Grubbies Services are a third-party marketplace for customers (“Customers”) to view, discuss, and place orders for food and beverages, and pick- up and/or delivery services in connection therewith, with participating restaurants (the “Restaurants”). The Grubbies provides order placement services only. The Grubbies is not a merchant of food or beverages, or provider of any pickup or delivery services in connection therewith, and does not control the Restaurants or the production of any food or beverages, or any pick-up or delivery services therewith.
The Restaurants have entered into agreements with The Grubbies to comply with federal, state and local laws, rules, regulations, and standards pertaining to food preparation, sale, marketing and safety. The Grubbies, including the Website and the The Grubbies Services, does not in any way independently verify the credentials or representations of any of the Restaurants, the ingredients or the quality of any their products or services, or any Restaurant’s compliance with applicable laws.
Customers using the The Grubbies Services must make themselves comfortable through the information provided by the Restaurants on the Website, by contacting the Restaurants directly, or through such other means or methods as they may deem appropriate, as to the quality and reliability and quality of the Restaurants and the Restaurants’ compliance with applicable laws. The Grubbies, including the Website and the The Grubbies Services, does not in any way guarantee the quality of any Restaurant or any food or beverage, or any pickup- up or delivery service in connection therewith, or any compliance thereof with applicable laws. In addition, a Restaurant may represent certain standards with respect to their food preparation (or other services), such as “organic,” “kosher,” “macrobiotic” or allergen- specific standards such as “nut-free,” “gluten-free,” or “lactose-free”; The Grubbies does not investigate or verify any such representations. The Grubbies shall not be liable or responsible for any food or beverages, or any other services, offered by the Restaurants or any errors or misrepresentations made by them (including on the Website and through the The Grubbies Services).
We do take customer satisfaction very seriously and, in addition to contacting the applicable Restaurant directly, we ask that you notify The Grubbies of all complaints or concerns that you might have regarding the Restaurants.
ORDERING AND PAYMENT
When you place an order through the The Grubbies Services, you will be given a choice of payment options, which may include via Apple Pay, Credit Card, PayPal®, Android Pay, and direct payment to the applicable Restaurant. If you pay for your purchase via Apple Pay, Credit Card, PayPal, or Android Pay, we will ask for a valid Apple Pay account, Credit Card, PayPal account, or Android Pay account, as applicable, which will be billed through the The Grubbies Services, for the purchase price of the applicable order, and “The Grubbies” will be the name that appears on the Apple Pay, Credit Card, PayPal, or Android Pay statement, as applicable. As stated above, however, The Grubbies, including the Website and the The Grubbies Services, is not and shall not in any manner be considered the seller of any of the food, beverages, and services ordered.
The Grubbies takes customer satisfaction very seriously. If you have any problems with your order, we ask that you contact the Restaurant directly, but, if you have not been able to resolve your issue with the Restaurant to your satisfaction, please contact The Grubbies and we will try to assist you. In appropriate cases, if you have already been billed by The Grubbies, The Grubbies may issue full or partial refunds, or “Cash Coupons”.

TERM AND TERMINATION
These Terms shall remain in full force and effect while you use the Website or the The Grubbies Services. You may terminate your use or participation at any time, for any reason, by either ceasing to use the Website and the The Grubbies Services.
WITHOUT LIMITING ANY OTHER PROVISION OF THESE TERMS, THE GRUBBIES RESERVES THE RIGHT TO, IN The Grubbies’S SOLE DISCRETION AND WITHOUT NOTICE OR LIABILITY, DENY ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE WEBSITE AND THE THE GRUBBIES SERVICES, TO ANY PERSON FOR ANY REASON OR FOR NO REASON AT ALL, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FOR BREACH OF ANY REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY OR COVENANT CONTAINED IN THESE TERMS, OR OF ANY APPLICABLE LAW OR REGULATION, AND THE GRUBBIES MAY TERMINATE YOUR USE OR PARTICIPATION IN THE WEBSITE AND THE THE GRUBBIES SERVICES, DELETE YOUR PROFILE AND ANY CONTENT OR INFORMATION THAT YOU HAVE POSTED AT ANY TIME, WITHOUT WARNING, IN The Grubbies’S SOLE AND ABSOLUTE DISCRETION.
Any provisions of these Terms that, in order to fulfill the purposes of such provisions, need to survive the termination or expiration of these Terms, shall be deemed to survive for as long as necessary to fulfill such purposes.
Your use of the The Grubbies Service is subject to any and all additional terms, policies, rules, or guidelines applicable to the The Grubbies Service or certain features of the The Grubbies Service that we may post on or link to on the The Grubbies Service (the "Additional Terms"), such as end- user license agreements for any downloadable applications that we may offer, or rules applicable to particular features or content on the The Grubbies Service. All such Additional Terms are hereby incorporated by reference into, and made a part of, these Terms.
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to conflict of law principles. If a lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted under these Terms, you and The Grubbies agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within San Francisco County, CA for the purpose of litigating any dispute. We operate the The Grubbies Service from our offices in San Bruno, and we make no representation that the The Grubbies Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations.
If there is a dispute between users of the Website, or between users and any third party (including any Restaurant), you understand and agree that The Grubbies (including the Website and the The Grubbies Services) is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have any such dispute between users and any third party (including any Restaurant), you hereby release The Grubbies (including the Website and the The Grubbies Services), its directors, officers, employees, service providers, affiliates, agents and successors from all claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes.
In the interest of resolving disputes between you and The Grubbies in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and The Grubbies agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND THE GRUBBIES ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Despite the provisions of the paragraph directly above, we both agree that nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either of us to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
Any arbitration between you and The Grubbies will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting The Grubbies.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or if we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail ("Notice"). The Grubbies's address for Notice is: The Grubbies, LLC, 140 New Montgomery St, San Francisco, CA 94105. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or The Grubbies may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or The Grubbies must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If our dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, The Grubbies will pay you the highest of the following: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (ii) the last written settlement amount offered by The Grubbies in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (iii) $1,000.
If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, The Grubbies will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in San Francisco County, California, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse The Grubbies for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
YOU AND THE GRUBBIES AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and The Grubbies agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
If The Grubbies makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to The Grubbies's address for Notice), you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to The Grubbies's address for Notice, in which case your account with The Grubbies will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject will survive.
If the paragraph above regarding class or representative proceedings is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Disputes Section is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Disputes Section will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Governing Law Section will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
The Grubbies cannot control the nature of all of the content available on the Website or through the The Grubbies Services, or the products and services being sold by the Restaurants therein. By operating the Website and providing the The Grubbies Services, The Grubbies does not represent or imply that The Grubbies endorses any Restaurant, Contributions, or any other content or products available on or linked to by the Website or through the The Grubbies Services, or that The Grubbies believes any products, Contributions, or other content to be accurate, useful, or non-harmful. We do not control and are not responsible for unlawful or otherwise objectionable products or content you may encounter on the Website or through the The Grubbies Services or in connection with any Restaurants, Contributions, or other third parties.
YOU AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE AND THE GRUBBIES SERVICES WILL BE AT YOUR SOLE RISK. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, The Grubbies, ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, SERVICE PROVIDERS, AFFILIATES, AND AGENTS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN CONNECTION WITH THE WEBSITE AND THE GRUBBIES SERVICES AND YOUR USE THEREOF, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. THE GRUBBIES MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE WEBSITE’S CONTENT OR THE CONTENT OF ANY WEBSITES LINKED TO THIS WEBSITE AND ASSUMES NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY (A) ERRORS, MISTAKES, OR INACCURACIES OF CONTENT AND MATERIALS, (B) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF OUR WEBSITE AND THE GRUBBIES SERVICES, (C) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SECURE SERVERS AND/OR ANY AND ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION AND/OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION STORED THEREIN, (D) ANY INTERRUPTION OR CESSATION OF TRANSMISSION TO OR FROM THE WEBSITE, (E) ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, OR THE LIKE WHICH MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH THE WEBSITE BY ANY THIRD PARTY, AND/OR (F) ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN ANY CONTENT AND MATERIALS OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF ANY OF THE PRODUCTS, SERVICES, OR CONTENT POSTED, TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE VIA THE WEBSITE OR THROUGH THE THE GRUBBIES SERVICES. THE GRUBBIES DOES NOT WARRANT, ENDORSE, GUARANTEE, OR ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE ADVERTISED OR OFFERED THROUGH THE WEBSITE OR ANY HYPERLINKED WEBSITE OR FEATURED IN ANY BANNER OR OTHER ADVERTISING, AND THE GRUBBIES WILL NOT BE A PARTY TO OR IN ANY WAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MONITORING ANY TRANSACTION BETWEEN YOU AND PROVIDERS OF PRODUCTS OR SERVICES. AS WITH THE PURCHASE OF A PRODUCT OR SERVICE THROUGH ANY MEDIUM OR IN ANY ENVIRONMENT, YOU SHOULD USE YOUR BEST JUDGMENT AND EXERCISE CAUTION WHERE APPROPRIATE.
LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL THE GRUBBIES OR ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, SERVICE PROVIDERS, AFFILIATES, OR AGENTS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFIT DAMAGES ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE OR THE GRUBBIES SERVICES, EVEN IF THE GRUBBIES HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY CONTAINED HEREIN, The Grubbies’S LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID, IF ANY, BY YOU TO THE GRUBBIES FOR ORDER PLACED BY YOU THROUGH THE THE GRUBBIES SERVICES DURING THE PERIOD OF 1 MONTH PRIOR TO ANY CAUSE OF ACTION INITIALLY ARISING.
CERTAIN STATE LAWS DO 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 OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS.
IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH SAYS: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLYAFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold The Grubbies, its subsidiaries, and affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, employees, service providers, and agents (collectively, the “The Grubbies Indemnitees”) harmless from and against, any loss, damage, liability, claim, or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, made by any party due to or arising out of your Contributions, your use of the Website, or your use of The Grubbies Services, including, without limitation use in violation of these Terms and/or arising from a breach of these Terms and/or any breach of your representations, warranties, or covenants set forth in these Terms. Notwithstanding the foregoing, The Grubbies reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify an The Grubbies Indemnitee, and you agree to cooperate, at your expense, with The Grubbies’s defense of such claims. The Grubbies will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action, or proceeding which is subject to this indemnification upon becoming aware of it.
