- PROVISION OF THE SERVICES
4.1 Produce Subscriptions. We make available mystery boxes of produce (each, a “Produce Box”) for the delivery of produce to addresses within our delivery areas, as specified on our website. The items contained within each Produce Box will vary each week and we do not provide any guarantee on the variety, contents or items within each Produce Box and we reserve the sole right to determine what is provided. Our Produce Boxes contain a variety of ‘peculiar produce’ which are items that are discoloured, misshapen, imperfect, surplus, have suffered minor bruising and/or damage, are B-grade produce, are overripened or have a short shelf life. Depending on the details of your Subscription Plan and whether a promotional offer applies, the price of your Subscription Plan may change. You can find more information about our fees and the details of your Subscription Plan by logging into your Account and visiting the appropriate pages on our website or by checking the email we will send to you. Unfortunately, Subscription Plans are not available everywhere – you can only subscribe if you live in one of our delivery areas. Check out our website to confirm if you live within one of our delivery areas. We reserve the right to decline to deliver Produce Boxes to any address in our sole discretion, even if it is within one of our delivery areas. You may not have more than one Subscription Plan per Account.
4.3 Recurring Subscriptions. When you sign up for one of our Produce Boxes, you have the option to enroll in a recurring subscription plan (each a “Subscription Plan”). A Subscription Plans is a recurring subscription that auto-renews successively unless cancelled in accordance with these Terms. This means that you will be charged an initial fee and then thereafter on a recurring basis for your Subscription Plan. Consequently, you authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method the initial fee and then on a recurring basis for your Subscription Plan, unless you have paused or cancelled your Subscription Plan in your Account Settings. However, if your Produce Box has already been processed or is otherwise out for delivery, you will be charged for such Produce Box in accordance with your Subscription Plan and any request to pause your subscription status will only become effective on the next delivery date. We reserve the right to modify the fee associated with your Subscription Plan and such a new fee will apply to the next renewal of your Subscription Plan unless cancelled in accordance with these Terms.
4.4 Cancellation. You may cancel your Subscription Plan by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your cancellation request. However, you will still be obligated to pay for any Produce Box that has been processed or is out for delivery and you authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method in connection with such Produce Box. Once your cancellation request has been processed and confirmed, we will cease charging you for your Subscription Plan.
4.5 Non-Recurring Purchases. From time to time we may sell products from our online store on a non-subscription basis (“Non-Subscription Products”). Purchase of these products will have a one-time fee, unless otherwise indicated in writing, and may have applicable tax and shipping fees. If your non-subscription product has already been processed or is otherwise out for delivery, you will be charged for the product in accordance with the price indicated in your Account menu page. We reserve the right to modify the fee associated with your non-subscription product without any notice.
4.6 Provision of Services by Affiliates. Sometimes third parties, such as our parent company, Fresh Prep Foods Inc., or our affiliate, Fresh Deliveries Inc., or other contractors or affiliates of ours, will provide some the Services to you on behalf of Peko (such third parties who provide Services on our behalf, the “Affiliates”). You acknowledge and agree that the Affiliates may provide Services to you and you agree that we may disclose your personal information to such Affiliates to the extent necessary to enable them to provide such Services.
4.7 Personal Use. Items contained in Produce Boxes and Non-Subscription Products are not for resale or commercial use. The Services are for personal use only.
4.8 Expiration Dates. The items in Produce Boxes are meant to be cooked and/or eaten within 4 days of delivery. If the expiration date for any ingredient in your Produce Box has passed, you agree that you will not consume such expired ingredient nor will you permit any other person to consume such expired ingredient. Ensure you properly dispose of expired ingredients.
(a) Drop Off. Products you order from us which we agree to supply will be delivered to the delivery address (the “Delivery Address”) recorded in your Account either by us or one of our Affiliates (such person making the delivery, the “Courier”). Delivery is typically made by motor vehicle, trike and by foot, however if we use different means of transportation we will notify you in writing. You are responsible for ensuring that delivery at the Delivery Address is safe for the Courier. For example, this means ensuring that stairs are shovelled of snow and guard dogs are properly restrained. If no one answers the door when the Courier arrives at the Delivery Address, the Courier will leave the products at the door unless we communicate different delivery information to you.
(b) Freshness of Food. You are responsible for ensuring that your Produce Boxes and Non-Subscription Products are safe for consumption. Among other things, this means checking the contents of any delivery to confirm that no items are spoiled or damaged, ensuring that perishable foods and beverages are promptly refrigerated and stored at safe temperatures, cooking foods to appropriate internal temperatures, and following food safety and handling guidelines. For more information on safe food handling, check out the Government of Canada’s Safe Food Handling Tips . The foregoing is not an exhaustive resource – consult an expert if you unsure about the safety of your food. Failure to follow appropriate food cooking, safety, and handling practices may increase risk of foodborne illnesses.
(c) Frustrated Deliveries. In the event of poor weather (such as snow) or unanticipated delivery complications, we will attempt an additional delivery of your order at a different time at no cost to you. If for reasons outside of our control we are not able to deliver your order after such additional delivery attempt, we reserve the right to cancel and refund your order.
(d) Replacement Items. If items in your order are delivered spoiled or damaged, or if something is missing from your order, please contact us at email@example.com.
4.10 Responsibility. We try to make things easy for you, but without limiting anything else in these Terms, you acknowledge that you are responsible for, among other things:
(a) ensuring that you and your fellow diners are not allergic to any of the ingredients in your Produce Box or any other product we provide you;
(b) ensuring that your Produce Box meets your nutritional needs;
(c) properly washing, preparing, storing, disposing, cooking, and handling your food and any other product we provide you;
(d) refrigerating or freezing any perishable ingredients contained in your Produce Box, your Non-Subscription Product, or any other products we provide you;
(e) ensuring that your ingredients and any other foods are consumed prior to their expiration date and are not otherwise spoiled or compromised;
(f) ensuring that your ingredients have been properly cooked and are safe for consumption; and
(g) following appropriate kitchen, food handling, and cooking safety protocols.
4.11 At-Risk Populations. If you, or any person you intend to serve with food, are in an at-risk group, you agree to consult with a doctor or other qualified professional before serving or consuming any of our products, such as our Produce Boxes or Non-Subscription Products. Persons in at-risk groups include, without limitation, the elderly, young children, pregnant women, persons with allergies, persons with weakened immune systems, persons with non-standard nutritional requirements, and persons with diseases. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you agree not to allow any child under the age of one to consume any of our Produce Boxes, Non-Subscription Products, or any other products
4.12 Risk and Title. Title to any products we provide you, such as the ingredients contained in your Produce Box, occurs when the product arrives at your Delivery Address; provided that we have received full payment for such products. This means that once one of our products arrives at your address, you become the owner of it. However, to the extent we, our Affiliates, or our licensors or suppliers have any intellectual property rights in any of those products, we, our Affiliates, and our licensors and suppliers will remain the owners of those intellectual property rights, as applicable. Risk to products we provide you passes to you upon going out for delivery.
- ADVERTISEMENTS AND PAYMENTS
5.1 Advertisements and Contract Formation. Advertisements respecting our products and services, such as a Subscription Plan, are invitations to you to make offers to purchase products and services and are not offers to sell. A properly-completed order on our website by you constitutes only your offer to purchase the products or services in your order, even if Peko has processed payment for such offer. Your order will be accepted only if and when Peko sends a purchase confirmation email (“Confirmation Email”) to the email address you provided during your registration or order process or as otherwise updated on your Account. Consequently, the contract (the “Contract”) between you and us for the product or service you ordered will become effective on the date we deliver the Confirmation Email. The Contract will relate only to those products or services referred to in the Confirmation Email as being part of your order. If Peko does not accept your order in whole or in part, Peko will refund any amounts paid by you to Peko for the order or part of the order not accepted and no contract will be formed with respect to such order.
5.2 Corrections. Any price offers or advertisements given by Peko will be valid for the period stated on the offer or advertisement, except that Peko reserves the right to reject any sale for any reason, including without limitation for typographical errors, illustrative errors, or a misprint in the price offer or advertisement. In the event of a pricing mistake, we will not be bound by the incorrect price.
5.3 Depictions of Products. Products may differ slightly from how depicted in any illustrations, photography or descriptions on our website or in print. Peko has endeavoured to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products as they appear on our website and in print. However, as the actual colours you see will depend on photographic processes, Peko cannot guarantee that the depiction in colour will be accurate.
5.4 Product Changes. Our products and services may change or be discontinued at any time. In accordance with the Contract, products and services that are delivered will have similar characteristics of the products and services you ordered, but minor changes between what is delivered and what is described online are possible. Peko may ship products or services with minor specifications changes, provided that there is materially the same characteristics of the ordered products or services. Our Produce Boxes are mystery boxes and the contents of each box will be determined by us each week and we do not guarantee any particular item will or will not be contained nor the composition of any Produce Box, and Peko reserves the sole right to determine what is included in each delivery.
5.5 Charges. You acknowledge and agree that your use of certain Services, such subscribing to a Subscription Plan or purchasing a Non-Subscription Product, may result in charges (“Charges”) to you. Charges may include applicable taxes and applicable shipping and handling charges. Prices for particular Services are described in the online order form. You agree to promptly pay all applicable Charges. Charges might be one-time or recurring, depending on what you have purchased. Provision of the Services is conditional upon your prompt payment of Charges.
5.6 Payment. When you provide a payment method, such as a credit card, that is accepted by us, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use such payment method and that you authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for all applicable Charges. For example, when you make an order on our website, you permit us to charge the payment method you have chosen in the total amount of your order (including applicable taxes). If we, or our third-party payment processor, are unable to verify your payment method, or if it is otherwise invalid or not acceptable, we may suspend or cancel your order. Notwithstanding any suspension or cancellation of your order, you remain obligated to pay us for any Charges.
5.7 Accurate Information. When incurring a Charge, you must provide accurate and complete personal and billing information as requested by us.
5.8 Sales Final. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, or as is required by law, all purchases of Services are non-refundable and non-returnable, including, without limitation, Subscription Plans and Non-Subscription Products. Subject to (a) the terms applicable to your selected payment processing method, and (b) applicable law, you are solely responsible for any unauthorized, fraudulent, or erroneous transactions related to your use of our website and/or your receipt of the Services.
5.9 Prices. Prices on our website are expressed in Canadian Dollars (CAD) unless otherwise noted. If the product or service sold has additional terms and conditions, those additional terms and conditions will be provided by us to you prior to the sale. Pricing and availability may change without notice.
5.10 Promotional Offers. At our discretion, we may make available certain Services at a discount or for free for a trial period (“Promotions”). We reserve the right to modify or cancel these Promotions at any time. If we reasonably determine you have violated the terms applicable to the Promotion, we may charge you the full price for the Service that was otherwise subject to the Promotion. At the end of any free trials, if you have not cancelled your Subscription Plan, you agree that we (or our third-party payment processor) may begin charging you for your Subscription Plan without additional notice to you.
5.11 Limited Quantities. Despite anything to the contrary in these Terms, we may impose a limit on the purchasable quantity of a particular product or service.
5.12 Availability. Delivery of products is subject to availability. If you have paid for a product but it is unavailable, we will notify you of the unavailability and either refund you the purchase price for such product or provide you with a replacement product of equal or greater value.
